While our focus has been on the British royals for the past week, we have a number of royal hat outings to catch up on in other countries! Queen Margrethe continued the first leg of her summer cruise, visiting the Faroe Islands. For her arrival by plane last Sunday, she repeated a navy felt hat with rounded crown and rolled brim, edged in navy and white hounds tooth piping. The hatband is also edged in the piping, secured with a button at the side. Maregrethe isn’t one to mix and match her hats much but she paired the hat with a new navy suit (instead of the hounds tooth dress it has been worn with until now).
Queen Margrethe wore traditional Faeroese dress (see the retrospective below, taken in 1963 and 2016) for the first two days of the visit last Monday and Tuesday- some great photos can be viewed here and here at the Danish Monarchy’s website.
På Færøerne som Prinsesse i 1963 og Dronning i 2016. H.M. Dronningen har besøgt de nordatlantiske øer flere gange i sit liv. Ofte iklædt den færøske nationaldragt. 🇫🇴 Í Føroym sum Prinsessa í 1963 og sum Drotning í 2016. Hennara Hátign, Drotningin, hevur vitjað Føroyar fleiri ferðir. Ofta í føroyskum klæðum.
The programme on Wednesday was decidedly more casual and saw the Danish Queen tie a turban scarf around her head. It’s such an unpretentious move, you’ve got to love Margrethe for it.
Princess Benedikte accompanied members of the Danish Royal Ballet on a trip to China this week but alas, did not appear in any hats.
