Presentation of scholarships at Hotel d'Angleterre

Tuesday, January 17th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of the Heart Association and the Children Foundation's scholarships. The ceremony took place at Hotel d'Angleterre, Copenhagen. 

A day with the heart in focus. The Crown Princess had just been visiting Rigshospitalet where she was introduced the project Copenhagen Baby Heart, here.  As patron of both the Heart Association and the Children's Foundation she then attended the presentation of three research scholarships taking place at Hotel d'Angleterre. These were given to associate Professor and Chief Physician Kasper Iversen, Chief Physician Henrik Kjærulf and doctor and research associate Amalie Bøggild. Before the ceremony she got the change to meet some of the so called "heart-children", who are children born with a heart failure and their families. Mary took plenty of time to talk to the kids. They were having fun and I am pretty sure everyone had a great time. The kids seemed really seemed to enjoy some time along with the Crown Princess. 

Because the ceremony at Hotel d'Angleterre along with the Heart Association and the Children's Foundation was taking place right after she visited Rigshospitalet, not much had changed when it comes to her outfit. She was still wearing that incredibly beautiful new printed blouse from Proenza and that black 3/4 coat, rather long, and a pair of black trousers. Embracing the style, Mary accessorized the look with leather pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a matching suede Hugo Boss clutch. When it comes to jewellery we have a pair of diamond earrings and a stunning diamond brooch which are told to be from Prince Henrik's mother. But as I have said before, it has not been confirmed. With fair skin, natural makeup and feminine curly hair Mary amazed me as always.

Copenhagen Baby Heart

Tuesday, January 17th

Crown Princess Mary visited the research project Copenhagen Baby Heart at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen. 

It was as patron of the Heart Association Crown Princess Mary visited Rigshospitalet on occasion of the new research project called Copenhagen Baby Heart. Parents are offered a heart scan of their newborn before the end of two weeks after the birth if they live in Copenhagen. The purpose of the project is to see if it is possible to track down heart defects in time and gather knowledge about child development. By visiting Rigshospitalet Mary had the opportunity to see for herself how the project is working in reality because she watched a heart scan of a newborn. With four children I think she knows exactly how important such a project like this can be for a child's life. The Crown Princess followed closely everything that was going on around her and also asked lots of questions along the way. Passioned as always. 

Though the weather is nothing special really, Mary turned a cloudy and rainy into a bright and sunny day with her outfit! Despite the lack of colours I think it looks incredible; chic and modern. A bit minimalistic. So, what she did was combining a new printed blouse with a pair of black trousers. Actually very simple. Immediately I was drawn to her blouse, looks very interesting. I have not been able to find it on my own -I had some help with this one. I tried 10 or more different designers, but non of them was the one I was looking for. Then yesterday I received an email from the most lovely lady, sharing her possible findings on Mary's new blouse. I am in no doubt that she has found the right one at Proenza. A designer I think we have now seen for the first time. Believe she used the scarf as a belt, what a clever idea! Neither do I think we have seen that 3/4 sleeve jacket before. Or have I just forgotten? Love how the blouse sleeves are longer than the jacket. Makes a great detail. Another really beautiful detail is her diamond brooch, perfectly matching the earrings. The brooch are told to be a gift from her father-in-low and belonged to his mother, but it's only rumors. About the earrings, then I have never heart anything. What I know is that she also wore the day Princess Isabella was christened, here. Embracing the simple and minimalistic style she was wearing her brown pumps from Gianvito Rossi. I'm totally in love with her curly hair; looks so feminine and beautifully framing her face.

The Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award

Tuesday, January 10th

Crown Princess Mary received The Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award. The ceremony took place at Det Berlingske Hus in Copenhagen.

No doubt that Mary has shown her commitment to the Danish people right from the beginning. Shortly after her marriage with Frederik in 2014, she got engaged in social work, among other things resulted in the Mary Foundation's establishment in 2007. Since then she has become the patron of several international and national organizations as well as foundation's all working to provide, those who need it, a second chance in life. Now her work with as patron of disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in society is rewarded with the Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award! The award is given to someone who has done something unusual for the benefit of the Danish society and has been handed over since 1975. For sure Mary should be proud of herself and what she has achieved! She works hard and that should indeed be rewarded in my opinion. It is not strange at all Mary was in such great mood when she arrived at 3:00 pm local time to the award ceremony. In a well-spoken speech, here, she did not try to hide how honored she was. It was clear to me that the Crown Princess was very grateful to receive the award. A huge and laud congratulations to Mary on behalf of this prestigious honorary award.

  It's worth mentioning that the Crown Prince couple attended dinner on occasion of the Mary's new award. According to Billed Bladet, here, the dinner took place at restaurant Le Sommelier near Amalienborg castle. The couple arrived around 7:00 pm. local time. From what I see Mary was dressed in a pair of black velvet trousers, a sparkly turtleneck blouse, metallic cap toe pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch -perfectly matching her Annikat earrings! And the of course we have the black Prada coat, here.

What made this outfit outstanding is indeed the huge smile on her face! Which was beautifully framed by a berry lipgloss. Keeping the style sophisticated and classy she was wearing a brand new figure hugging Etro dress. Kate informed about the identity of the dress, thanks. Usually not something I would have chosen myself because of the pattern, but because the is black I think it works really well. Especially I'm in love with its length and 3/4 sleeves. The rather long dress makes a perfect match with the bit shorter black Prada coat. Very feminine. Maybe you did not notice it, but actually the dress features a belt too. Pretty sure this is not the last time we are going to see her in that specific dress. Both leather gloves, the Quidam clutch and her Gianvito Rossi pumps are black and looks super chic with the printed dress. Mary embraced the style by wearing her Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen bracelets, three diamond rings and a pair of reused Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings featuring lovely blue pendants.
