Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary during the first day in Hamburg
Finally, what we all have been waiting for in a very long time. When this official visit to Germany was announced, I have really been looking forward to the time where the couple were actually going to Germany and now it's time. The visit focus on Danish Living, everything from design and fashion to health and cooking. Early in the morning the Crown Prince couple were officially welcomed by hundreds of people at a ceremony at the City Hall in Hamburg. All day the royal couple were in a splendid mood with a huge smile on each their faces. Seems like they really enjoyed the first day in Germany. Most of the day, they spend together at visiting among others seminar's on sustainability, style and living. Around noon the Crown Prince visited a hospital in Barmbek and attended a conference on sustainable living. Meanwhile, the Crown Princess attended the opening of a Danish design exhibition and visited the supermarket Edeka in Rindermarkthalle. Mary also got her chance to prepare food on 23rd floor. A great way to begin an official visit -with lost of smiles, laughs and happy faces.
Another reason why I always look forward to these official visits is, of course, to get another glimpse of what she's wearing. Don't think we have ever seen Mary dressed inappropriate abroad Denmark. I rarely gets disappointed and nor did I this time. Today I think we are start with her shoes. On her feet she wore black patent leather pumps from SAND Copenhagen that matched the black dress-pants. Mary had chosen to focus on the upper-part of her body wearing a white blouse and a brand new white jacket featuring the most incredible beadwork I have seen in a long time! It is so pretty, don't you think so? With help from Tesouras & Tiaras (which reminds me to mention that she has an amazing blog you just need to visit, if you not already is a fan!) the white jacket has already been identified as Tory Burch. It has the wonderful name Isabella just like her own little princess. No outfit without accessories. Mary has chosen to bring the lovely Carlend Copenhagen clutch with her to Germany. I am sure will see it again soon, during this trip. Then she wore a long golden necklace with pendants from Ole Lynggard Copenhagen. Her gold and silver rings are also from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Then we only have the Marianne Dulong earrings left. They have been identified by Kate. Diana identified her new bracelet as Anni Lu. Thanks to both of you! I really can't get enough of her outfit from today. What do you think? Anything you would like to wear?

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary attending dinner in Handelskammer Hamburg
After a rather long day, starting with an official welcoming ceremony at the City Hall in Hamburg, it was time for the Crown Prince couple to attend a dinner in Handelskammer Hamburg. Guest from near and far were invited to the dinner with Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary as guests of honor. They arrived last and was warmly welcomed. Not many pictures, nor articles have been published from the dinner at Handelskammer Hamburg, but from what I see the couple were having a great time in the evening.
As a Crown Princess you can't wear the same outfit as during the day, so of course Mary changed to a reused white fitted dress. The upper-part of the dress features pleated fabric. With some help from Kate, I can tell that she wore the dress last year at a dinner at Amalienborg, here. According to Royalista the white dress is custom-made by Danish designer David Andersen. As the first time, she wore it with golden Manolo Blahnik pumps. She added a pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch and a pink scarf from the same designer as the dress according to Billed Bladet, here. So chic! As jewellery she was wearing a pair of earrings in the same pink colour as the clutch, which I first thought was new, when they are in fact old. We saw them in 2014 when the Danish school system celebrated its 100th anniversary, here, and later at a gala show was made. Mary attended the show and as you have already guessed by now - this is when she wore the earrings identified as Annikat. I think they are so beautiful and makes a great match to the white dress and all the other accessories. Her gold ring is from Marianne Dulong.
