Crown Princess Mary visiting Qatar Academy & Qatar Foundation

A busy week has passed, but the couple had one more day left in Qatar before leaving for Denmark. I bet their children have missed their parents and look forward to get them home again. The Crown Princess' day started way earlier than the day before. On this last day she payed a visit to Qatar Academy as the guest of honor. When she arrived to the local school, she was in a splendid mood. The pupils were just as thrilled to met the Crown Princess. The children proudly shared drawings of princesses with her -princesses dressed in white dresses and a crown on her head. Not what she is typically wearing in the everyday's, but one of the children had made a very special crown to her featuring dolphins. The Crown Princess also tried on the beautiful flower wreath she was given. A wonderful moment that gave a smile all over her face. Within that half an hour she visited the local school, she also practiced reading on the floor. A down on earth Crown Princess with lots of time to everybody. While Crown Prince Frederik visited port area Ras Laffan, were he also visited Oryx GTL factory (Gas to Liquid), his wife visited Qatar Foundation, where she met with her Highness Sheikha Mozah Al Missned with whom she had a really good conversation with during the visit.

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary meeting with Emir of Qatar

One last thing before the couple could take the 9 hours flight back home. It was a meeting with the Emir of Qatar, H.H. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. He was the one to welcome the couple. He kindly asked the Crown Prince, how their trip had been. He replied; it had been quite a busy week but really good. This was the final event the couple attended before going back to Denmark. I think it has been a really nice trip and I think the couple enjoyed the time together. They are both curious to visit new places in the world, which is why I believe especially this has been a lifetime experiences.
I have been a little afraid of writing about the trip, at least until they landed in Saudi Arabia. Much negative had already been written and I wouldn't be the one generate more negative publicity. But I have heard absolutely nothing. I am grateful for your understanding the situation and supporting a more positive mention. Thanks.

It ended as it started -with black trousers. I read somewhere that she was wearing a black jumpsuit, but I doubt that. She almost never wear jumpsuits and I see two types of fabrics. I have no idea, where any of these two piece are from. Actually, I had a hard time identifying anything new from this visit. My guess is that the black trousers is the same as she has worn the first days in Saudi Arabia and that the blouse could be a new one. I wonder if that scarf is a part of the blouse? One of the things we see Mary wear pretty often is these coats. A long white coat featuring black details, seen plenty of times before at all kinds of occasions. In the beginning I think it featured a collar. Sure you remember it. Another items worn at countless events, is the white pearl earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry (former Marianne Dulong). So, if you need just one pair of essential earrings -a pair of white pearl earrings are what you are looking for. One great accessory for day and night. Then she accessorized her outfit with a diamond bracelet and once again her Georg Jensen bracelet worn almost every day the last week, such as the black Carlend Copenhagen clutch. The large pearl ring is from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Four accessories we know all about. What I see, she's wearing the black Gianvito Rossi pumps. Her makeup was natural and beautiful as always.
