Day of Research 2016

Monday, April 25th

As patron, Crown Princess Mary attended the official grand opening of Day of Research 2016, hereHere she also presented the Research Communication Award 2016, here. It all took place at the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen.

At yesterdays event, she attended both the official opening of the Day of Research 2016 and to hand over the Research Communication Award 2016The Day of Research is organized by the Ministry of Education and Research. The setting was a little different then what we are use to see the Crown Princess in, because it all took place at the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen. Here several professors and prominent figures from the Zoological Museum, were invited along with the Crown Princess, who by the way (of course) attended as guest of honor. The Crown Princess arrived around 10:00 am local time, where she was welcomed with flowers and lots of smiles. Shortly after her arrival, she entered the stage and gave the opening speech followed by a speech professor and psychologist Barbara Hoff Esbjørn, who received this years Research Communication Award for her work and research anxiety disorders in children. Along with Minister of Education and Research, Ulla Tørnøs, the Crown Princess visited four different areas of the festival including topics as mushrooms and DNA. All of it seemed to have her sincere interest while walking around the festival in the rooms of Zoological Museum. These four projects is a part of the citizens science, where citizens contribute with their knowledge and collect data that is then processed by different researchers. Among other things, the Crown Princess was impressed to hear about the more than 50 ant species.

The weather is really not something special in Denmark these days. We both have warm days, but also many days with rain, wind and even snow. It's cold and foggy. A weather like this takes both woolen coats and knitted scarves to keep warm. But not Mary. She showed up wearing white, a skirt and bare legs. Not in a million year would I do anything like that. She was dressed in lots of different shades of white, a shawl and some other interesting accessories. We have seen the both blouse and skirt before. The skirt is a classy model from DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, first seen when she attended the Loveing Measure event, here. This skirt is now also a part of my Mary-wardrobe and I simply love it. The blouse has troubled me quite a lot. After all, it was found at Prada. Surprise. Identified by Kate, I know that Ganni designed her new white poncho featuring colored details. She also embraced the style by wearing white pearl earrings and a bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Mixed with diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, she won my heart. When talking about accessories, I can't help myself from getting really excited about her snake skin belt. Fabulous, right? Does any of you remember it? The belt goes quite a few years back in time. We first saw it around the time, when she and her husband featured an interview in 2005, which was published in an Australian newspaper, here. Then seven years later, she showed up wearing the belt once again, here. Somehow I always adored this belt and I really don't know why. Looks good on her. This time she matched her outfit with nude leather from Prada and a suede clutch from Hugo Boss.
