Queen Margrethe set sail yesterday on the first leg of this year’s summer cruise, stopping first on the island of Lolland for a two day visit. For the first day of engagements, which included her arrival in Nakskov harbour and visits to a cherry winery, museum and sculpture installation, the Danish Queen repeated her pale blue bumper hat with braided trim and side bow. This hat has been on the shelf for a few months and the break made me happy to see it again. It’s a lovely piece and I particularly admire how the felt of the hat matches perfectly with Margrethe’s silk crepe suit. Matching the colour on different textiles is tricky at best and this ensemble coordinates so well.
This is the first solo summer cruise for Queen Margrethe since Prince Henrik’s retirement and I can’t help but feel for her, although she looked upbeat and happy at yesterday’s events. You can see a short video of this visit (and see this hat in action) here. What do you think of this design?
