The Crown Princess arrived to Søgårdlejeren in Aabenraa in a good mood. All relaxed and comfortable. The reason for her visit is on occasions of the 75th "anniversary" for when Denmark was occupied by Germany during the second world war. It was on April 9th 1940. I think it's remarkable that Mary takes the time to commemorate Denmark's ancestors. We all have ancestors how has experienced the war. The day is an important part of our history and it means a lot to many Danes to remember the day that changed the country also subsequently. It makes me prove to have a Crown Princess who thinks of others. Not many things bring the Danes together but a historical day like this does, such as the Royal family. The day also reminds us all that we live in a more or less peaceful world. The Crown Princess placed a wreath to honor those we lost or got missing during the war. 

Mary was, very appropriately, dressed in black and grey accessories. For me it looks like a old reused coat with some kind of embroidered floral pattern -maybe a jacquard pattern. And I was right about the coat; it is a reused. She wore it when she was pregnant with Princess Isabella in 2007, here, and at a reburial of Queen Dagmar later on, here. Thanks to a good friend of mine you get two events with her wearing it. Then the amazing grey hat! I do not know if it was made asymmetric to be on the side of her head, but to me it looks polished. Milliner Susanne Juul might be the creator. It was at the opening of the Parliament in 2009 that Mary wore the exact same coat with the hat, here. I wrongly identified her grey pumps as Gianvito Rossi a few posts ago. Because with a closer look at them I noticed a golden detail around the heel. After a while I came across a model from Rupert Sanderson and it seems like the "golden heel" is something he is known to use. Then there is her patent grey clutch which to me looks like Prada. Then there is the little brooch worn on the coat. This little wonder is from the Danish designer Elise Gug

  1. The reburial of Queen Dagmar was in 2006 and not in 2009. It was reported at this time that Mary had to leave the church because she wasn't feeling very good. I think it was because of the incense. A couple of weeks later her second pregnancy was announced.

    CP Mary wore this coat at least 7 times, including this very recant outing.

    1. Of course, you are right Caroline8! A completely mistake I see now.
      Thanks for sharing the info with me ;)

      Sometimes it is a little hard to see whether it's the same coat or not, because she owns so many in black and many of them look at lot like each other.
