Gala Dinner at Fredensborg Palace

Friday, January 29th


Queen Margrethe hosted a gala dinner for naval officers which took place at her and Prince Henrik's current home, Fredensborg Palace. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the dinner. 


After having attended the presentation of the prestigious Women's Board Award 2016 earlier in the afternoon, Mary was ready to participate in the gala dinner at Fredensborg Palace accompanied with her husband. It is a tradition for the Queen to host a dinners every year, one for the Army,  one for the Navy and one for the Air Force to honor what they are doing to protect Denmark. This year 20 officers of the Navy with a admiral- or commander degree were invited to Fredensborg Palace to attend the gala dinner. A couple of years ago Frederik was appointed Rear Admiral so he was among equals at the dinner. According to Billed Bladet, which is one of the only ones who have written about the dinner, said that the royals and the invited enjoyed fine dining with everything from fish and mushroom sauce to wine from the royal couple's castle Chateau du Cayx in France. During the dinner music was played by the Royal Guard.

Because we haven't seen any pictures I'm trouble telling you about her outfits, even though I think she looked dazzling in her reused purple Alexander McQueen (Fall 2004 RTWgown! I would never have chosen a dress like this but wauw, Mary nail it every single time she show up in this purple dream of dress. Her rather slim figure beautiful shows and the colour looks splendid because of her fair skin and dark hair. It features a sating banding crossing the stomach and ties at waist. Beautiful! She wore the dress in 2005 when attending a gala dinner at Kronborg Castle hosted by the Netherlands to celebrate the 400 year diplomatic collaboration between the Netherlands and Denmark. At the dinner Prince Constantjin and Prinsesse Laurentien attended. I think I spotted one of her satin box clutches from Prada and a pair of long diamond earrings with a purple amethyst in the video published by Billed Bladet. My reader Kate noticed that Mary wore a pair of purple suede pumps as well, worn at the opening of the parliament in 2014. Since 2014 I have tried to find out who the designer is, but still with no success. Not to forget the red nail polish. Some how she manage to match this colour with everything she wears.
