80th Birthday: Reception at Fredensborg

Monday, June 2nd

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted a reception in the orangery at Fredensborg castle on occasion of the Prince's 80th birthday on June 11th. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also attended the reception.


It takes more than one day of celebration to celebrate when Denmark's Prince Henrik is turing 80 on June 11th. And really, it's not everyday you turn 80 so friends and family are invited to take part in the celebration. On Sunday he was accompanied by Queen Margrethe, his oldest son and his family (among others) at a gala performance in DR's grand concert hall which, by the way, was transmitted live on Danish TV. A wonderful evening with lots of music, entertaining and a walk down back memory lane. Now it was time again because the Queen and Prince hosted a reception in the orangery at Fredensborg castle, where close friends and family were invited all to celebrate the Prince before his big day. Just as the weather, the Prince was in an excellent mood really enjoying the evening. To me it seems like all of them really had a wonderful evening. Frederik and Mary also attended the reception. Both relaxed and enjoying themselves. With the opportunity to meet old friends, I think it was a memorable evening. 

Immediately I fell in love with Mary's outfit from yesterdays gala performance and I was even more amazed by what she wore on Monday at the reception taking place at Fredensborg castle. I am crazy in love with this floral evening outfit! The black and red floral dress is a brand new silk dress from Dolce & Gabbana and is absolutely amazing. Sorry, can't hide my excitement. And the way she styled it with new and old accessories, is simply perfection in my opinion. The beautiful diamond earrings featuring that huge red ruby, is part of the Ruby parure inherited from Queen Ingrid -Frederik's grandmother. The earrings were originally not part of the parure but created by Marianne Dulong and her team when the rest of the parure were restored around 2010. Despite they are fairy new, the design matches the almost 100 year old Ruby parure. In the same magnificent red/pink colour as on her new dress and red earrings, she wore a Carlend Copenhagen clutch. The black bracelet you see on her wrist is a little more special because it was given to her by Frederik on heir 10th anniversary last month. The day was celebrated in Poland, here, which I'm quite sure you clearly remember. It is created by Ragnar R. Jørgensen. Perfectly from head to toe. Dazzling hairstyle, red berry lips and her beige Christian Louboutin pumps. Seriously, what's not to love?
