Opening of the Parliament 2014

Tuesday, October 7th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the annual opening of the Danish Parliament taking place each year on the first Tuesday in October.

There are so many annual occasions to look forward to each year when being a royalist. One of them is differently the opening of the Danish Parliament, something Mary and Frederik has attended every year since their marriage in 2004 expect from 2005. That year Frederik attended on his own because Mary was heavily pregnant with their first born child, Prince Christian. He was born less than ten days later. Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte also attended the opening as usual. All four women were given a beautiful bouquet of flowers at the arrival after which they all found their seats on the balcony in big parliament hall (which indeed is a magnificent place to be). 

I am deeply in love with what I see!! She was so graceful, elegant and polished wearing a new white coat, new purple pumps, a new purple pill box hat and matching leather gloves. A true 50's/60's outfit, in my opinion the most glamorous time of them all. Her new pill box hat has now been identified by Heaven as a Jane Taylor (AW14) creation. Thanks for the help! Every detail of this outfit is just perfect. It was love a first sight when I first saw her new white coat. Magnificent design and lovely details featuring golden buttons at front. To find this coat hasn't been easy for me and I'm not the one to credit this time, because the sweet and wonderful reader Heaven was also able to identified the coat as Chloé. Once again, thanks. I know I will never have such coat (even though I would really like to!) still you are allowed to dream, just a little bit. Both bracelet and matching earrings are from Marianne Dulong. On her right hand she wore 3 thin silver rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and the stunning gold bracelet are made by Shamballa Jewels. The little checkered clutch in black/white is one we have seen before, which I’m very sure comes from Prada. If you know more about it and have other information’s please let me know. Until then, it’s a Prada design ;)

  I know you all love Mary's outfit, as much as I do, and find her looks very inspirational. Many of you have expressed how much you like watching her old outfits and this is really a great time to share pictures of old outfit. This is why I have gathered pictures of all her previous outfits attending the opening of the Parliament from 2004 till 2013.
