Danish Golden Jubilee

50 years ago today, Queen Margrethe II ascended the Danish throne following the death of her father, King Frederik IX.  While the current state of the pandemic forced the postponement of larger scale events celebrating this Golden Jubilee, Queen Margrethe was joined by her family today first for a visit the tomb of her father at Roskilde Cathedral followed by scaled-down celebration at Danish Parliament.

To visit Roskilde Cathedral, Queen Margrethe repeated her grey fur bumper hat and matching coat.

Controversy about fur aside, this design is a practical choice for an outdoor winter event. I just wish she had closed her coat to show off the striking diagonal stripes and give a sleeker overall look.

For the visit to Danish Parliament which followed, the Danish queen switched hats, donning the brimmed blue hat with striped feather trim which we first saw her wear last November. It was an unsurprising change for the indoor event, pairing Margrethe’s lovely blue suit with its matching hat. It’s a beautifully designed and finished piece, the feathers giving some welcome colour and textural contrast to the all-blue ensemble.

Crown Princess Mary Mary repeated her ecru felt pillbox hat exquisitely trimmed in lace applique on one side.

The pillbox adds subtle contrast to an overall look that is elegantly restrained- some might frown at the neutral ensemble but it feels so well suited for an event where another family member is clearly the star.

Princess Marie wore a new black straw beret percher trimmed with round disc flowers. Here’s an occasion where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, the hat pairing beautifully with Marie’s black and white floral dress, black accessories and mint coat.

Princess Benedikte topped her magenta suit and purple cape in a new hat combining these two hues. The design features a magenta domed crown, purple bumper brim and a trio of twists in different saturated shades of pink on the side. Benedikte wears these berry shades so well and this piece is a fun addition to her wardrobe.
