Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik of Denmark arrived at Jakarta airport this afternoon for the start of a four day Indonesian visit. For their arrival, followed by a reception with Danish expatraites living in the South Asian country, Queen Margrethe wore a silk linen covered hat with indented crown and brim that raised slightly on one side.
The fedora-esque hat (the crown indent here shows this is not a true fedora) was trimmed in a band around the base of the crown in the same striped fabric as Margrethe’s blouse. While the shape of the hat is smart, I would much prefer it in straw to bring some much needed textural contrast to this outfit. Coordinating royal hats to ensembles is always a good idea but this one, where the exact fabrics of the Queen’s suit and blouse are repeated on her hat, is too much for me.
Previously Worn: August 22, 2009
You can see the royal couple’s full programme here. With an official welcome, wreath laying and commemoration of Indonesia’s 70th annivesary of independence on the schedule, I think we’ll see a few more royal hats before this trip is over!
