I depends on what you mean, it is her and Haakons first inaguration of a bishop so there is no presedence. The last times she and Haakon went to church, for the former bishop of Oslos last service, and some weeks later for a church jubilee she did not wear a hat. She did wear a "hat\earmuff thing" for the Tsunami memorial where she attended alone, but that day it was declared courtmourning because of the funeral of Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte so maybe it was an exception. She never wears hats for normal engagement like Maxima and Mary sometimes does, but puts one on for very formal engagements like national day, state visits and funerals and weddings abroad.
Two times she has attended Nobel, Queen sonja was not there and she did not wear a hat, one time (very pregnant) Sonja was there and she wore a (ugly) hat.
I dont know if that answers your questions, I think she usually wears ugly hats and usually looks uncomftarble wearing them, so I dont mind her not wearing it, better not wear one than wearing something stupid like a dead bird or wires sticking out of your head
. Todays hat looks nice enough and I guess occation appropriate
