The royal family in Aalluitsup Paa

When the royal couple and their oldest son Prince Christian arrived to Aalluitsup Paa it was pouring down. Despite rain all three seemed to be in a splendid mood. Not much time for outside fun, still they were warmly welcomed and Mary was given a beautiful bouquet of flowers. In Aalluitsup Paa they both visited their new church, a local nursery Muka where they were met by a handfull of a bit shy children and along with Christian the couple attended kaffemik. Kaffemik is a Greenlandic tradition where people gather for a chat and cop of coffee or two. Well I have to say that I simply love to see Frederik and Mary on an official job with Christian. It was all relaxed and to me it looks like he had a great day with his parents. After a couple of hours it was time to leave Aalluitsup Paa -and yes it was still raining.

No doubt that the weather was the reason why all three royal family members were dressed, from head to toe, in rainproof outwear and warm boots. This was how they arrived by boat to the city Aalluitsup Paa in South of Greenland which by the way is Mary's first time in that part of Greenland -and of course Prince Christian too. Frederik and Mary both wore black rainwear from 66North and Christian wore a green and navy blue set from North face. Inside, and away from rain, Mary and her oldest son showed up in the same dark blue down jacket which could be from Moncler. I haven been able to find a picture that shows a logo which is why I am not completely sure, but it looks a lot like something Moncler would have in their assortment. I also suggest Moncler because previous we have seen Mary in their down jackets. Oh.. and not to forget Mary was also wearing a light grey knitted hat that reminds me a lot of her wool hats from Susanne Juul.

The royal faily in Nanortalik

Luckily the weather was way better in Nanortalik than in Aalluitsup Paa when the Crown Prince couple and their four lovely children arrived with Dannebrog. Prince Christian and Princess Isabella were the first two off board closely followed by their parents and younger siblings. Prince Vincent did not leave his father at any moment, not did Princess Josephine leave her mother one second at the arrival. Understandable. But Christian and Isabella went, on their own, straight to shake hands and say hi to the attendance who'd showed up. I'm sure the royal couple were very proud of their children -all of them. Both Mary and Isabella was given a bouquet of flowers which Josephine found very interesting. For three hours the Danish royal family stayed in Nanortalik, then boarded Dannebrog again to proceed to Qaqortoq where they were supposed to be the following day. This was already end of day two; a day with lots of smiles, a museum visit, a guided tour in Nanortalik and of course also the traditional 'kaffemik'.

I completely lost my breath when Mary on their second day was more than perfectly dressed in everything from green to black. Simply stunning. I am totally in love with her outfit; the match of materials and colours are magnificent. Really lovely how she combined a new moss green blazer, a cosy darker green turtleneck with a pair of black trousers. A classy, stylish and warm outfit for another day in Greenland. It was suggested at Princesses76 that her new blazer could be from Ralph Lauren (Blue Label collection) and with help from another sweet reader I can confirm that Cécile was absolutely right about the blazer! Later I found out that Catherine, Duchess of Cambrige has the exact same one. Two women, same taste in blazers. I still do not know a thing about the turtleneck, maybe you do? What I know is that the heeled ankle boots was worn by her at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. Not that I know where they are from, because I don't but I'm still looking. This is the first time we see her wear high heels since she arrived to Greenland. Her outfit really impressed my and even more when I noticed the diamond studs from Hartmann's and Shamballa Jewels bracelet. As Marilyn Monroe said diamond are a girl's best friend. For sure they are! I wasn't disappointed at all. And of course her makeup and hair was flawless as usual.
