Thursday, May 8th
Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship 2014 which took place at University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen.
The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship
... was established in 2004, the same year Frederik and Mary got married, and it was a gift from the University of Copenhagen to the couple. It is given to two Australian students who have been nominated by universities and chosen by the Danish scholarship committee and award, awarded the scholarship which also is given to Danish students.
For now exactly 10 years The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship has been handed over to two Australian students, studying in Denmark, as a reward for their work. The scholarship is, not to forget, also given to several other students including Danish students. Despite it's must be quite an honor to receive this royal scholarship, handed over by the Crown Princess herself we often do not get to see more than a few pictures -at least not the last few years. And really I can't give you a reason. Luckily I have my own sweet photograph attending the presentation of the two Australian students, Emma Bowers and Harry Barton, who have been carefully elected as this years recipients. Assisted by her lady-in-waiting, Tanja Doky, Mary arrived, friendly and smily, to the University of Copenhagen, in Copenhagen, ready to hand over the scholarship to Emma and Harry who both seemed honor meeting the Crown Princess. Proudly all three of them were photographed on the staircase in front of the University. I big moment for the two students I presume. They both seem overwhelmingly happy, which we of course all understand. It must be a privilege.
As I first told you, this is not the 10th time The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship is handed over and I thought you might be interested in walking down back memory lane for a moment with me to see some of the previous sessions (and outfits of course!): 2005 * 2006 * 2007 * 2008 * 2009 * 2010 * 2011 * 2012 * 2013. So do you have any favourites?
A truly remarkable outfit she wore at this years presentation. So far Mary has never disappointed my when attending the presentation of her own scholarship and this year was differently no excuse. Maybe the choice of colours surprised me a bit because we're in May and she should perhaps be wearing plain white, pastel colours and light materials, which we also have a lot lately. Though the colour combination is a little odd, I absolutely love what I see! What do you say; too much Autumn? I think every little piece of her outfit matched and looks super classy. Why is it that she always look this smashing? Unfortunately I do not know a thing about the two most interesting pieces; the cardigan and skirt. Both of them, look brand new. Do you recognize any of them? The blouse we have seen on a trip to New York in 2011 and I strongly believe it's from Hugo Boss. Do you see the similarities? Perfectly matching the rest of the outfit she wore a pair of stylish Christian Louboutin pumps. Like earlier the same day, attending the second semi final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, she was wearing her golden Marianne Dulong earrings featuring lots of sparkly diamonds and a Shamballa Jewels bracelet such as a single Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen diamond ring. A figure hugging outfit I can't stop staring at. I also feel drawn to the colours and significant pattern on the skirt which by the way features a long zipper as closure on back. Looks just dazzling!
