Friday, June 5th
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the anniversary meeting in Landstinget, the Danish Parliament, and procession on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the constitution. Queen Margrethe, Prince Joachim & Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte did also attend the celebration.
Early Friday morning the Crown Prince and Crown Princess arrived to the Danish Parliament in Copenhagen to attend another celebration event on occasion of the 100th anniversary of the constitution. The anniversary is quite important for us to celebrate in Denmark as well as internationally. What we are celebration is what our ancestors fought for; the right for women to vote. 1915 was the year when the Danish women got the chance to vote in politic. Today we, more or less, take this for granted, but for our great-grandmothers and great-great grandmothers it was something to fight for. And because of them we now have the opportunity to vote. We should thank them every day. So, of course it should be celebrated. Within a few weeks we are going to vote for the next government and when I make my vote, my thoughts goes to those who made this possible. I just had to share this sentimental moment with all of you. For the Crown Princess I also think it is an important celebration of woman's rights. Something she are working very hard to improve. In 2016, one of the biggest conferences, Women Deliver, on this area are coming to Denmark with the Crown Princess as hostess.
Now a little "fashion excitement" because at the celebration, Mary was dressed in some good old stuff which I am so pleased to see again. At the coronation of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima in April 2013, here, we saw this light blue hairpiece for the second time such as in June 2013 when she and Princess Benedikte attended the CHIO in Germany, here. It has never been identified and I still do not know anything about it. I guess it could be made by Susanne Juul. For a moment, let's stay at the opening of CHIO in Germany because not only the headpiece was worn today. Mary matched the blue headpiece with the same aquamarine blue earrings and the masterpiece of a dress! With the some kind help from YDE Copenhagen it has now official been confirmed that today's dress is in fact designed and made especially for Mary by designer Ole Yde. About the earrings. I can't tell anything for sure, but a couple of years ago I found a similar pair at one of Bruun Rasmussen's auctions which is why I strongly believe that her aquamarine blue earrings are purchased at auction. The beige gloved perfectly matched the suede Hugo Boss clutch. The white coat and beautiful hairstyle made her outfit elegant and feminine at the same time. Last piece I haven't talked about yet, is the new pumps she was wearing. For day's I have been looking everywhere to find out where they are from. A true nightmare. I tried everything and the last designer that came to my mind turned out to be the right one. I am so thrilled! Her shoes is new and comes from Pura López (FW15-16).
