Wednesday, September 24th
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended a gala concert on the occasion of the Army's 400th anniversary of the Opera, Copenhagen. Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik, Prince Joachim and Princess Benedikte also attended from the Danish royal family.
It was along with over 300 special invited guests, that five members of the Danish royal family were invited to attend the celebration of the Army's 400th anniversary. On this occasion a gala concert was held in the Opera, Copenhagen. One by one, arrived the royal guests to the Opera and were warmly welcomed. It was a rather cold evening, so a warm welcoming ceremony was differently needed. Still, they all seemed in a splendid mood at the arrival. You may wonder why Prince Joachim was going on his own without his wife, but the fact is that Princess Marie was on official visit in New York. The concert lasted over three hours and I'm sure they all had a great evening.
Although it was a windy and cold evening when the royal family arrived, Mary had decided to wear a knee-length floral Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring beautiful red and white flowers. We have seen it once before, here, at a 80th birthday. No way better then matching the dress with red ruby jewellery from Queen Ingrid's ruby parure -a rudy red bracelet and earrings also featuring diamonds. Don't you think it looks just incredible with the floral dress? It is not often we see Mary wearing nail polish, but in honor of the occasion she had chosen a love burgundy colour. Because of the weather, she kept warm in rather large black shawl over the shoulders and in her hand she wore a little black clutch. Still not identified. Then of course we have the black pointed pumps which are from Rupert Sanderson. The shape is simply smashing! I truly understand if the Crown Prince was proud of his wife, because she looked outstanding next to him who was in his green uniform.
