Danish Golden Jubilee

We have lots of royal events to catch up on! On the second weekend of September, celebrations were held to mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark’s accession to the throne. This included a service of thanksgiving held at Copenhagen Cathedral followed by a lunch on the royal yacht Dannebrog on Sunday, September 11.

Queen Margrethe repeated a pink beret with with side twist trim. It remains a great hat for her, the vibrant colour placing her firmly in the spotlight (as she should be for the celebration of this milestone!) and the hat’s scale and placement allowing her to shine. It remains such a great hat for her.

Princess Josephine wore a white silk hair bow (and a series of very amusing expressions!).

Princess Marie repeated a black headpiece with looped black silk organdie ribbons. This piece also does well for flatteringly framing the wearer’s face. Since we’ve seen Marie wear this primarily at memorial events, I would have preferred to see her in something a little more uplifting for this celebration. .
