Saturday, November 7th
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary hosted a gala dinner at Christiansborg palace in Copenhagen on the occasion of The Trilateral Commission meeting.
What is The Trilateral Commission?
The Trilateral Commission was established back in 1973 to foster closer cooperation among Japan, Europe -European Union countries and North America -United States and Cananda, to core industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system. The commission got approx. 250 members. You find much more here.
On Saturday the 7th of November Frederik and Mary hosted a gala dinner on occasion of The Trilateral Commission meeting at the end of a three-day conference which was held in Danish Industry (Dansk Industri), Copenhagen, for the commission's European members. The dinner was held at Christiansborg palace, at the other end of the holder for the Danish Parliament, in the hall with the characteristic black and white floors and colourful tapestry but only now we have a pictures from the event. I don't know if you keep an eye on their calendar, I do, and this dinner was something I looked forward to. So for me to wait all these days to finally see a pictures of them was way too long Was it worth the wait? - it differently was! During the three-day conference Frederik gave a speech and he got the chance to talk with some of the members on the meeting's different topics, like how to improve cooperation politically and economically between various regions of the world. The conversation he could continue during the dinner at Christiansborg palace accompanied by his lovely wife.
From the outside Christiansborg palace does not look that special at all, which of course is just my opinion, but the second you enter the first room you immediately see how magnificent it is! Every room is beautifully decorated, huge glass chandeliers are hanging from the ceiling in every room, you see old paintings everywhere along with the most overwhelmingly furnitures. It is differently worth a visit! You are led from one room to another and every room gets more fantastic. In the middle of all this you find the Great Hall (Riddersalen). The chandeliers are even bigger, the floor is like a huge chessboard and everywhere you look these colourful tapestries are hanging on the walls. The Great Hall has been used for numerous royal dinners, birthdays as well as state visits. You become almost mesmerized by entering the room. The unique tapestries are made by the sculptor Bjørn Nørgaard and they were a gift to the Queen in 1990 when she celebrated her 50th birthday. The 17 tapestries tells the 1000 year history of Denmark. Ten years later, in 2000, the tapestries were done and were placed in the Great Hall on occasion of the Queen's 60th birthday. The Great Hall measures 40 meters long and 10 meters high.

Why do we adore Mary so much? Because she unexpectedly shows up in a golden jacquard fitted dress wearing matching pumps! That's why. It was so much worth the wait to get a glimpse of her attending the gala dinner on Saturday. I really think every royalist turned their heads and looked just one more time to see how dazzling Mary was. I almost lost my breath. How was your first reaction when you saw her in the golden wonder? Mary looks good in almost everything from trousers to dresses but she also chooses her clothes with great care. Most women would look like a disco ball wearing such a dress but not Mary. She just look graceful. I expressed to you who much I really wanted to identify this new golden evening dress and with your precious help the dress has now been found! The golden wonder is from Prada. Thank you so much to both Heaven and Kate for you great help finding the dress. She paired her golden glitter pumps from Gianvito Rossi to make the outfit look even more stunning. Among others she has worn them at the INDEX: Award 2015 in Helsingør and at the Reumert Award 2015. I'm so sure her hairstyles matched everything she wore beautifully such as the Cenius & Bach earrings and golden diamond bracelet (which I still do not know the designer of). I also spotted her wearing the box clutch from Judith Leiber. The perfect clutch to the most amazing evening outfit!
