Crown Princess Mary attended The University Startup World Cup in the House of Industry, Copenhagen.

What is The University Startup World Cup?
Here are the most promising students startups gathered in the world for an intense week of development and networking. This week is a great and very unique possibility to develop the idea such as doing some networking across the globe. The teams are also offered one year with the Booster Pack program that will help the teams move forward with their ideas. Read more here

After several intense days for the teams at the University Startup World Cup in Copenhagen the time has finally come for the winner to be found. Mary was invited to present the 1.prize at this special event which took place in the House of Industry. The University Startup World Cup is arranged by Non-profit organization Venture Cup who have dedicated their work to help university students with their projects and ideas. Over 40 teams with students from more than 24 countries were gathered at the event to share knowledge and the opportunity to build a very unique network of contact. Shortly after she arrived it was time to give her speech, where she praised all the fantastic and talented students, and then the presentation of the winner team was found.  She pointed out how important it is to take young people's ideas seriously, since many of them can be pioneers in their field. The silence was immediately gone when the winner had been found after Mary calmly had read the name - VesaliusMed LLC. The team from Stanford University in USA have my greatest wished and congratulations!
VesaliusMed LLC
They have developed a software that uses machine learning and data mining techniques to diagnose cancer bladder caner with a very high accuracy. To do a diagnose takes less than a minute for a single patient. Read much more about this magnificent project right here!

The four judges to find the winner were Stine Bosse, Johan Bülow, Søren Ejlersen and Nicolas Michaelsen. All four judges are important business people in Denmark and abroad. It is a part of the job as the Crown Princess of Denmark to present and hand over prizes such as all kind of awards but I think Mary enjoy these days. She always shows a sincerely joy. Mary gave the event a significant royal glow, which was held for the first time this year, but I'm pretty sure it's not the last University Startup World Cup we will hear about.

It does simply not get any more classic and stylish than a white suit! The business-looking Mary I really like. She has the perfect shape to wear a suit and the white colour for woman is the same to me as the black for men. Very edgy! The suit features some details I kinda like - the press button makes it look sharp and the white satin hemline on front gives the jacket something to look at. With this is just not a plain white suit. Many of you might think: "Hey this is a new suit!!" well, it's not. Back in 2012 she wore the same at a annual meeting with the Mary Foundation. At that time we only had a glimpse of the suit but I'm so sure it is the same. To this white outfits she chose brand new Gianvito Rossi pumps from his FW14/15 collection! In my imagination I would never have thought Mary would ever wear these. She keeps surprising me. Black as the pumps was her Carlend Copenhagen clutch.

The most exciting about the outfit was the two necklaces around her neck. Of course we know all about the Orit Elhanati necklace in gold but the other one... is a large medallion we have never seen before and is only mentioned once, last year in occasion of Frederik and Mary's 10th anniversary. On their 10th anniversary they were on a official visit to Poland where they also were celebrated with greetings  and a cake. That day Mary wore a very special, not to forget new, bracelet apparently given to her by Frederik as a anniversary gift. The bracelet consists of small medal shaped part of enamel which four of them showing the couple's children and their monogram in the middle. Two years before, in 2012, Mary celebrated her 40-years birthday on February 5th. In this occasion Frederik ordered a special gift, a unique medallion, created by the same goldsmith Ragnar R. Jørgensen. We have never seen this medallion till now! Because it was exactly this medallion Mary wore when she presented the University Startup World Cup prize a few days ago. On the front it features red enamel with the couple monogram in gold and the back is a argyle pattern in black enamel and diamonds (which we saw). I really want to thanks Kate because she told me all about this necklace! I enjoyed sharing it with you. Now I just hope I will be able to find a better picture of her wearing it to get a better look.

  1. Another great post Henriette! I am not very good at identifying things but I think you are right about the trouser suit. The information about the necklace is very interesting. Thanks!

    1. Thank you very much Sarah! :) I also have some hard times identifying her clothes and accessories; luckily I have several amazing people to help me which I appreciate. I'm glad you found it interesting to read about her new necklace. I was thrilled when I first heard the story. Frederik is a wonderful man and he loves Mary, not doubt about that.
