The Royal Ascot in England

Wednesday, June 15th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the second day of Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in London, England, which wasn't officially announced. 

The Royal Ascot
... has since 1711, from the time of Queen Anne, taken place at Ascot Racecourse and is the centerpiece of Ascot's year. Every year Queen Elizabeth II is attending the leading horse race with her family. A major (fashion) event covered by the world press as one of the finest events. It is tradition that the British family members arrived by carriages before the actual horse race takes place. And of course they have their own dress code, here. Read much more about the Royal Ascot here

It came as a huge surprise to all of us when Frederik and Mary suddenly appeared in the third carriage at the annual Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in London. Nothing had been announced and because it is the first time they have ever attended the horse race it was really a surprise to me -as well as it might have been to all of you. Sometimes a surprise is just pure happiness. At least it was to me! Total arrived four carriages paraded for all to see with some of the world's most prominent royals. The first one with among others the Queen of the United Kingdom and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh. They were followed by Prince Charles of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall. In the third carriage we had Frederik and Mary who were accompanied by Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sofie Countess of Wessex. Last but not least arrived the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the forth carriage. Here. It really doesn't get any better. From the second the Danish Royal Couple arrived to the horse race I have the feeling they enjoy every second of it. We were constantly seeing Mary laughing and having a good time while her husband mingled with the rest of the British royal family. Is it too much to say that this is the place to meet when you are a part of a royal family? Well, it's also a horse race and did Mary actually have the winning ticket, here? This is one **** of a debut for our favourite royal couple (sorry about my language). Something most of us wouldn't in a million year believe could ever happened. It did. Then I like surprises. So many posts have already been written about everything that happened, so this is all you get from me. Happy reading some of the other great articles! I have found some I think you'll like.

Update: And then of course I have to share this photo here shared on the royal family's Instagram profile of the couple attending the race. Isn't it just lovely?!? -Mary in her red dress and Frederik with that huge grey hat!


The Royal Ascot is differently more than winning tickets. It's also about finding the right outfit to wear and Mary did fantastic job in her red Marc By Marc Jacob dress! Which indeed is red and not orange. A gorgeous dress featuring the most incredible details like the cap sleeves and pleated fabric. I'm so please to see her wear that again which I think is the third time now. Never get tired of that dress. I noticed Mary had chosen a dress slightly shorter than the others. Like the dress she wore some other really interesting pieces as the headpiece created by talented milliner Jane Taylor. Sure you all remember it from the wedding in Monaco, here, and from Princess Estelle's christening in 2012, here. Keeping the dress center of attention, everything else are quickly forgotten. That's where I enter the picture of remind you to look at every detail of this outfit because she really wore some interesting pieces as the new Gianvito Rossi shoes. Have you seen them?! I think they do perfectly with the dress and occasion she is attending. Hadn't Mary worn these I would never have fallen in love with them. But they look soooooo.... lovely. It is with help from Heaven and Kate I'm able to share the info of where her new fishnet printed shoes are from. Thanks you two! Matching both shoes and hairpiece she wore the amazing beige clutch from Naledi Copenhagen which, once again, must be so proud, here. No complete outfit without jewellery and Mary was wearing plenty of stunning jewellery attending the Royal Ascot among others a new Cartier bracelet -their Love Bracelet. Maybe a gift from her husband on their 12th anniversary? Then she wore another golden chain bracelet from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen featuring a moonstone pendant and a large Dulong Fine Jewelry ring. My guess is that her new, fabulous (!!), earrings are designed by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen as well. If you ask me, this can't be the last time Frederik and Mary attend The Royal Ascot.
