Norwegian Royals Open Parliament

King Harald opened the 160th session of Norwegian parliament yesterday with a speech from the throne. He was accompanied by Crown Prince Haakon and Queen Sonja, who stuck to her usual uniform of black and red for this event. Her hat was an interesting design of two distinct elements- a red close fitting cap style crown and a high, diagonal black brim. While I’m always happy to see Sonja stepping away from her usual bowlers and pillboxes, there’s something about the two elements of that hat that seem uncomfortably out of sync. You can see the hat more clearly here during its last outing.

  1. Although I think Queen Sonja really suits black and red, I must agree with HatQueen that “there’s something about the two elements of that hat that seem uncomfortably out of sync.”
