Crown Princess Mary arrived to Nuuk

From August 29-31st Mary was visiting Greenland as chairwoman of the Mary Foundation to see for herself how, among others, Greenlandic day care centers uses the Free of Bullying-program. She was also attending a conference on domestic violence, which is a huge problem in Greenland, the following day. On her way to Greenland the royal family published a video of the Crown Princess where she tells about her the conference and what her expectations were for the visit. She arrived along with CEO of the Mary Foundation Helle Østergaard.

At the arrival the Crown Princess wore this brand new coat. A first I was sure it was a gift she received on behalf of her visit, but then I learned that it is in fact from a Jesper Høvring Great Greenland collection (AW 2016) at Royals & Fashion. I must say; it is a fashionable way to keep warm. Underneath the warm coat she was wearing a purple shirt, one I think we have seen before a couple of years ago, and a pair of black trousers. Her shoes I do not see, but my guess would be some kind of boots -maybe ankle boots? She styled this rather simple look with a brown Ralph Lauren bag, a golden necklace and a pair of sunglasses which I do not know the identify of. Could be her Prada shades.

Crown Princess Mary visited the day care center Sikkersoq

In Nuuk around noon, local time, she was welcome by children dressed in the traditional Greenlandic national costume. They all caught her attention right away. Along with the Mary Foundation's mascot, a purple teddy bear, Mary seemed to enjoy her day as much as all the kids. Despite their young age, the kids loved the Crown Princess and was the center of attention from the second she arrived. The successful visit was followed by a meeting with Department of Family, Gender Equality, Social Affairs and Justice. A great way for her to get her own impression of the situation before attending a conference on the subject the following day.

Shortly after the arrival to Nuuk Mary quickly changed her clothes, ready to begin her first day in Greenland. I have no idea how the weather is in Nuuk, but I was surprise to see Mary wearing a short sleeved blouse when everybody else were covering themselves in warm coats. Guess it is because she only spend very little time outside. Dressed in a brand new shirt from Hugo Boss (thanks to Royals & Fashion) and that black short sleeved turtleneck, her outfit has a 60s vibe that always looks incredible! Two piece of clothes you can style in so many different ways. Mary matched them with black SAND Copenhagen pointed pumps, quite many bracelets (Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry) such a pair of diamonds studs probably from Hartmann's. I haven not been able to find out if this is right or not, but I think her necklace is a gift. At least it could be. All the time my eyes are drawn to her hair, the length suits her face. Can't wait to see some more elegant hairstyles like the one at the 825th anniversary in Glostrup, here. Think this outfit would do perfectly with a leather jacket for a night out or maybe a pair of flats at work. So many ways to create new looks.

Crown Princess Mary attended a meeting with the Departement and a dinner in Hans Egedes House, Nuuk

After visiting the day care center Sikkersoq in Nuuk it was time for the Crown Princess to attend a meeting with the Greenlandic Departement, who is an important collaborator for the Mary Foundation when working with Greenland. At the arrival she was warmly welcomed by Minister of Family, Gender Equality, Social Affairs and Justice Martha Lund Olsen and Minister of Education, Culture, Research and Church Nivi Olsen. All three women were in a splendid mood! I'm sure they had plenty of time to share experiences and knowledge that can be helpful for all of them. The meeting was followed by at visit at a local shelter, also in Nuuk, where Mary had time to speak to both residents and employees. Around seven o'clock it was time for a dinner which took place at Hans Egedes House.

I am sure I'm not the only one who would have loved to see her without the coat, thought it's really stunning, because that golden Ganni dress is just incredible! -I know it because it's in closet. An amazing dress both to wear and for everybody else to look at. I would love to have seen how she wore it this time. But there is no doubt in my mind that it is in fact that dress she is wearing. Magnificent. The coat you already know all about; Jesper Høvring (Great Greenland AW 2016). Not that I think the dark grey Naledi Copenhagen is a perfect match to the dress, but it looks fabulous along the coat. Match made in heaven. Again I spotted a golden Cartier bracelet such as several pieces from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Is she wearing earrings too? -yes, but the pictures are blurred and I can't tell which pair. Oh, of course I almost forgot mentioning the dazzling black Gianvito Rossi pointed toe pumps. I wouldn't mind have my own pair. Without knowing anything, I believe Mary really enjoys herself staying in Greenland. Just look at her smile and the glimpse in her eyes.
