Day 1: Official State Visit in Australia

October, 24th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary are on a official state visit in Australia. It is a four day visit from October 24th to 28th. They were welcomed at the Sydney Opera House as a part of the 40th birthday celebration. The Opera House in Sydney was by Jørn Utzon, a Danish architect.

Hundreds of Australians were gathered in front of the Opera house to get a glimpse of the Crown Prince Couple. Waving with both Danish and Australian flags to welcome the Frederik and of course their Mary. The next four days they both have a program  packeted with activities celebrating 40 years of the Sydney Opera House and the Danish architect who designed it, Jørn Utzon. Among other is the Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2013 presented for the first time outside Denmark during their visit. Well that is something I really look forward to watch! The reason why it all began in front of the Opera House is because of its 40-years anniversary which the Danish royal couple are patrons of and the main reason why the Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2013 are awarded in Sydney on October 28th. The attendance was ready with their cameras, cell phones, flowers and gifts. They took plenty of time to meet and chat with the attendances who were thrilled to see the royal couple. Mary was given a bunch of flowers, she almost lost them but as the amazing Crown Princess she is she did her best to keep everything under control. I think she was overwhelmed how many people showed up. In the afternoon they couple paid a courtesy visit by the Governor of New South Wales. The visit took place in the Government House which is a part of Sydney Living Museums that represents 12 of New South Wales' most important museums and historical buildings. They went on a little walk in the garden. From the garden the Sydney Opera House is visible.

In Danish design Mary was ready to set start some amazing days in Australia with her husband. The fantastic blue/green dress is a creation made by Signe Bøgelund-Jensen. We have seen before and after quite some time we see it again. I think the pattern makes her smile, skin and everything glow like a true movie star. The dress also gives her a beautiful but small figure. A modern choice! I love the way her earrings from Marianne Dulong and the dress matched in colour. It is a clever thought. Marianne Dulong is also the designer of the black pearl bracelet on her right wrist which is paired with her golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet featuring pink diamonds. Worn at quite many events lately. Christian Louboutin has designed the beige pumps. For a long time I have been looking for the navy blue clutch she wore at their first day in Australia. After too many hours I still had no clue about the designer. Mary also got it in several other colours. It only have a very few details to use in the search to find it. Sometimes you just have to admit you need to give up and that is what I did. Gave up. One who did not gave up is my best reader of them all Pernille. She manage to identify who made the clutch. Crazy, right? So all the credit goes to her, thanks! The clutch is from a Danish brand called Quidam highly expensive not to mention. A quality brand with stunning bags and clutches.
