Presentation of this years christmas stamp

Monday, October 27th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of this years Christmas stamp as patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation

For Mary to attend the annual presentation of the Christmas stamp, has become a tradition I think. A really great one. One I look forward to. She is always in a great mood, relaxed and down on earth. Well, she usually is but something is a bit different about this. I really can't tell what it is, maybe you can? This year was no exception. Mary was in a splendid mood and seemed to enjoy herself. The annual Christmas stamp's are designed for the Christmas Seal Foundation, which Mary is patron of, to earn money to children who lives at the so called 'Christmas Seal homes'. Here they get help to gain more confidence or if the children are troubled with weight problems. The Christmas Seal Foundation have 13 ambassadors that count among others Countess Sussie of Rosenborg. This year's Christmas stamp's are designed by graphic artist Jacob Kühne. Together, he and the Crown Princess revealed the stamp's which had been covered up until the presentation. 

The amazing Kate has found out that Mary is not wearing a dress (as I first thought...). Actually it is a a navy blue blouse from Baum und Pferdgarten and blue skirt. The great Caroline8 has made me aware, that it’s not the first time Mary has worn the skirt, it is the third the time. First when she turned 40, here,  and then in 2012 when she attended the Save a mothers life, on mothers day, hereevent. I don't know if you remember the earrings? We have differently seen them before. Caroline8 also noted that they could be inherited from her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe -and they are, here. You get a close-up down below from a previous occasion. She also wore the beautiful golden necklace from Orit Elhanati (2014 collection). Many of you may have noticed the rather large ring on her right hand, here, so have I. I know absolutely nothing about it or who could have made ​​it. The size of the ring, the shape and colors surprise me a bit but it looks beautiful. Another thing to notice is differently the burgundy Prada pumps on her feet.  I like that she has chosen this colour instead of the same as the rest of the outfit. The burgundy colour gives the outfit something exciting to look at. Last but not least we have the gorgeous Quidam clutch!

  1. Mary has worn the skirt twice before this event (paired with a pink blouse at her 40th birthday pictures and with a blue, green and pink printed Baum Pferdgarten top).
    Queen Margrethe wore these earrings in her younger years. It could be a gift or loan to Princess Mary. Perhaps the blue/pink circle of the earrings is interchangeable.

    1. Caroline8, You are right, she has worn the skirt before. I could't recognize it but when you told me about it, I see that we have seen her wear it before. Thanks! ;)

      A long time ago I also had the thought that it has to be the same as the one Queen Margrethe wore, for instance at her 18th birthday. But I haven't been able to find out if it is true or not. Let me update the post with your new information's and see what people think. By the was, thanks for telling me about your observation :D
