While I like HM's hat, now I confess I just want to know if she's ever worn one of those particular headscarves.

On the final day today, September 1, Queen Magrethe is visiting Fanø municipality:

BB writes that QMII had to sail to Fanø by the ferry. Presumably Danneborg is too large to enter the harbor.

I can't recall QMII in a Danish traditional dress.
In contrast to say Sweden we don't have a national dress. A pity I think.
Local dresses and suits are not as widespread in DK like in Norway where they are very common. They are here mainly used by folk-dancers and very locally, say at weddings, funerals or local events.
Not least because they are pretty expensive!

"This year's summer cruise is over, and around the Royal Ship Dannebrog, Her Majesty the Queen has placed the many bouquets of flowers that Her Majesty has received during the visits to Thisted, Esbjerg and Fanø municipalities"

I knew I’d seen a picture of Queen Margrethe in a similar type of traditional dress in one of my many books and have finally found one in a book all about her dresses (Dronningens Kjoler). It was taken in 1996

Thanks, LibrarianDaisy.

I did a quick Google and came up with quite some interesting dresses worn by both QMII and Mary.

The dress QMII is wearing while dancing is from the Island of Rømø. Also a Wadden Sea island, but further south. So it's hardy surprising it looks like the one worn on Fanø.
QMII in her Rømø dress:

And the Fanø dress for comparison:

A poor quality photo of PH dancing folkdance, with a woman dressed in a traditional dress, I don't know from where though.
Judging from the huge buckles on PH shoe's and the cut and length of his coat I'd estimate the suit originating in the mid 1700 +/- 25 years.

And because I do like the Faeroese attire, here is QMII again, on a very scenic background:

And compared with other Faeroese suits:
https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0
The male style says 1725 +/- 25 years.

And just because, here is Mary in a Kenyan dress. I'm sure there are a lot of details, announcing whether she is married, her status, what tribe and so on - just as with the Danish dresses.

ADDED:
For those who are interested in the fascinating world of traditional (Danish) local attire, here is a link: https://www.folkedragt.dk/
Alas, only in Danish.
But here you can have a closer view on dresses from specific regions, even islands:
https://www.folkedragt.dk/kvinde_1.htm
And men's suits as well:
https://www.folkedragt.dk/mand.htm
(The most suits you see here are from the 1600's, based on the style.)

Mange tak Muhler. That’s a lovely picture of QM (better than mine!) and I always love seeing her in the National costumes of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. It’s just as well she found a husband who liked dressing up as much as she did,lol!

It sure is. In that respect we fortunately have the Dutch Regent Couple to carry the torch onwards.

Summary of the first day of the summer cruise with Dannebrog in Billed Bladet #31, 2021.
Written by Trine Larsen.

I haven't found any coverage of QMII going to see the bunker museum, so perhaps that was cancelled?
That's a pity. And I will have to cover that interesting part of the Atlantic Wall myself at some point.

Anyway, QMII arrived in the major fishing town of Hansholm in the windswept part of DK called Thy.
Here she among other things saw the National Park Thy, that is pretty much a windswept, desolate plain. And as such it's more a wildlife reservation. Fortunately the temperature was a balming 21 degrees C that day, otherwise it can get pretty chilly.
When people in that part of the country say it's a bit windy today = storm!

They have had a look at Dannebrog's engines BTW and they have located what went wrong, but not why! And especially not why both engines went dead, from the same fault.
Of course the engines are pretty old and from a time, when every nut wasn't monitored by computers. In fact the company that produced these engines doesn't exist anymore. And most ships using these engines have either been laid off or are sailing somewhere in far corners of the planet under some obscure flag.

After the visit to the nature reserve she enjoyed a lunch at Hansholm Lighthouse.
The building next to the lighthouse is a church. Life was hard being a fishing-family in that part of DK! So they adopted Inner Mission, a very stern form of Protestantism and the churches sometimes reflect that.
It was common that fishermen doubled as lifeboat crews during storms. And during one such bad storm a member of Inner Mission, offered his lifejacket to another crew member who didn't have one. Because if the boat foundered, the one who was given the lifejacket might survive. The one from Inner Mission was after all guaranteed to go to Heaven...

Hansholm used to be a fishing village, but it's now a major fishing port, and that has happened in the lifetime of QMII. She told in her speech how she remembered the discussion about enlarging the port in Hanstholm and now it is. That happened under her father in 1967, who opened the first part of the expansion of the harbor.

QMII also told that she is very familiar with Thy, and that she recently visited friend who live there. (While she was at Trend I assume.)

Apart from that QMII visited an ecologic farm (there is major money in ecologic farming!) And whiskey, mini brewery. here QMII admitted that she hadn't drunk that much whiskey in her life. - The brewery also export some of their products to Scotland of all places.

Queen Margrethe officially disembarked the Royal Yacht Dannebrog this afternoon, September 14.

In the evening she hosted a dinner for the Dannebrog's officers to mark the end of the ship's season 2021.
