Birthday Party at Tranekær Castle

Saturday, August 8th

On her own did Crown Princess Mary attended the 50-years birthday party of Count Christian and his wife Countess Mette Ahlefeldt-Laurvig. The birthday party was held at Tranekær Castle, Count and Countess' home on Langeland. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie did also attend the celebration. Crown Prince Frederik did not attend the party because he had pneumonia. 


What an entrance! Without Frederik next to her, Mary arrived to Tranekær Castle on Langeland. If she was fascinated by the huge red castle in front of her I understand why. Two years ago me and my family was on vacation close to Tranekær Castle and we all love to go around and see the palaces and castles located in the vicinity of where we are. We are all very interested in history. There's something magical over a castle. I know that they only tell about the rich part of a country but who do not like to let themselves live in a dream world just a few minutes? History tell us who we are and who we were. It created the society we live in - if we like it or not. Tranekær has a long history back to 1200 century. The castle has a quite interesting history and if you want you can read all about it here.  I think you should. Well enough about old castles, back to the present royal family. 

Mary made a fast and elegant entrance accompanied by Claus and Anna von Lowzow. You might remember the name of the woman because she is the one who made the documentary "The Royal Jewellery" (De Kongelige Juveler) broadcasted on Dr1 in 2011. A magnificent documentary everyone with a interest in royals need to see! To a party like this knee length dresses are not what you wear. Floor length is what you have to wear as a woman, royal or not. The future Queen chose a quite figure hugging gown in black featuring yellow and blue flowers. Lately Mary has worn clothes I have had a hard time identifying but this one wasn't hard to find. Very similar to the dress from September 10th 2014 is this dress from Erdem. Obvious, right? Thanks to Pernille, Kate, Royals & Fashion to let me know about the designer! The dress has actually been worn by Kelly Ripa as well - so who wore it best? The few pictures from Billed Bladet showed one difference; the colour. After a closer look I found out she wore a black gown at the birthday party. It would also have been great in midnight blue as the short similar version. Instead Mary added bright blue accessories to the royal outfit. 

The dark brown hair was beautifully done. Soft curls. The Aquamarine blue chandelier earrings featuring small diamonds was shining next to her elegant hairstyle. The story tells that her earrings was a gift from her husband Crown Prince Frederik. We never know if it is true. Still it would be a generous gift to give a woman. I wouldn't mind wearing them! She kept on her several Anni Lu and Charlotte Wæhrens bracelets and added a thin one on the other arm. Take a look at my DIY on Mary's colourful bracelets right here! Then there is her brand new clutch. A bright blue clutch with a huge diamond square stone on top. With the help from Pernille who was able to identify it, I now can tell you that it's from one of her favourite designers: PradaPernille & Kate they made my thoughts a reality because I had a feeling that her blue pumps were new and from Gianvito Rossi and they found the exact same model despite they do not know each other and live miles away apart. When you have been fascinated by Mary for this many years as all the three of us, you recognize new thing pretty fast. It's a weakness. Maybe you also noticed that she once again wore the coral nail polish? I just say: Welcome to the 60s! 

I just have to leave a comment on Princess Marie's outfit, more precisely her hair. Nothing bd about her short haircut with I really like it a bit longer. The hairstyle she showed to the birthday party at Tranekær was much more beautiful. Casual but stylish - Elegant but not too much.
