The Heartland Festival

Saturday, June 11th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the Heartland Festival at Egeskov castle on Funen.

The Heartland Festival
... is a combination of live performances and contemporary art with the best of music and food. A festival like no one seen before in Denmark. It takes place in the park around Egeskoc castle on Funen from June 10-11th 2016. Heartland Festival is created in collaboration with some of the largest and strongest players in their fields. The organizers want to give people a unique experience. Read more about the festival here

After a few busy weeks for both Frederik and Mary I guess they needed a little time on their own, enjoying each others company which they really seemed to do when they attended the Heartland Festival taking place in the castle park belonging to Egeskov castle at Funen. The castle is owned by Count Michael Ahlefeldt and Countess Caroline Ahlefeldt, good friend of the royal couple. The Count and Countess have multiple times attended events with the royal family as Frederik and Mary have attended numerous of their celebrations, like they did this weekend. According to Fyens the couple arrived around 5 pm. local time in their silver-grey car followed by a motorcade of three other cars. Introduced to some of the festivals events the couple really seemed to enjoy everything. Among others they joined a debate between Bjarke Ingels (Danish architect) and Brian Eno (British composer, producer and musician). A perfect place for them to get the latests cultural news which was great especially for Mary because she was about to attend this years Reumert Award on Sunday in a huge show broadcasted live. Here are presented several awards all given to highlighting some of the most talented artists in Denmark -music, art, acting, sining etc. 

Very interesting was her clothes, a little boho casual. Not something we usually see her wear but lately I think we have seen some quite interesting and unusual pieces so maybe our beloved Crown Princess is trying a new side of her style. Actually I think her style is way more casual and comfortable but because something a little more stylish and sophisticated is expected of her, it's not what we see her wear most often. But when we do I'm really inspired by what I see. Her casual style is easier to copy and wear in the ever days. So we saw her in a pair of black trousers and a reused white Rabens Saloner peplum featuring lovely lace details. Stunning as the blouse is, she wore a brand new jacquard jacket in the most incredible colours! Searching for it I found the new jacket at IRO. A designer we haven't seen Mary in before. Her sister-in-law, Princess Marie, has a several occasions worn their designs. Matching the trousers she wore a pair of black and white sneakers seen before, never ID'd despite many attempts. I had in mind several different designers and now with some help from one of you girls we might have the right model found at By Malene Birger. What do you say? With shades, a Chloé cross-body bag, a golden ring from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and Hartmann's earrings I think this outfit is really beautiful!
