Congratulations Prince Henrik!

Wednesday, June 11th

Today Prince Henrik is celebration his 80th birthday with Queen Margrethe, two sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren at Château de Cayx in France.

A big and laud congratulations from me to Prince Henrik on his 80th birthday! Last week was all about celebration: on Sunday a gala performance in DR's concert hall followed by a reception at Fredensborg castle hosted by the Prince himself and his lovely wife, Queen Margrethe. All along, friends and family from near and far have been there to celebrate the Prince on his big day but now it was time for the close family to celebrate him. So they were all gathered at Château de Cayx in France enjoying the day together. Both Frederik, Mary, their four children, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and all four children spend the day in France celebrating Prince Henrik. Usually a huge gala dinner is planned but not this year. Everything was way more relaxed and private. But for a moment the world was able to congratulate the Prince and get a glimpse of the whole family gathered. The atmosphere was really relaxed and I think everybody just enjoyed the moment for a family photo with Château de Cay in the background.

For sure you all right away noticed Mary in her brand new pleated maxi dress. That bright green colour can't be overlooked. Actually Mary and her mother-in-law were the only two wearing bright colours at the photo call. The colour makes me so happy, what about you? Immediately I fell in love with everything about that dress. Where is it from you ask? -I found it among several colourful models from Ilse Jacobsen. A designers I don not believe we have ever seen Mary wear before. Wouldn't mind have it as part of my own wardrobe. Loves how the dress makes her almost fly above ground. Stunning summer dress! No doubt that Mary's favourite material for jewellery is gold and that's exactly how she had styles her casual birthday look; with golden earrings from Marianne Dulong featuring diamonds, another new piece from Orit Elhanati and a Shamballa Jewels bracelet. The length of the dress makes it a bit difficult for me to ID what pair of shoes she was wearing, but then I stumbled across a photo that clearly shows braided sandals (and that she is wearing red nail polish on her toes -my favourite nail polish colour of them all!). Took the time to search for braided sandals and found out that Mary's are from a label called DB. I can't find it again but I saved the picture on my computer to you who want evidence of what I claim. She radiated with wavy hair and a natural makeup.

  1. Mary looks fantastic - I love her beautiful dress. It's great to see the whole family together.

    1. The dress is really lovely, I like that she always wears something we do not expect. That's why her style is always so exciting to see what she actually is wearing ;)

  2. I did fall in love with this dress the moment i saw it, just fantastic :-)

    1. You're not the first. I think a lot of people love Mary's new, green dress! It's also very beautiful.
