Around 10:00 am. local time Mary arrived to the UN city in Copenhagen where she was about to attend a reception on occasion of the outgoing WHO Director-General, Dr. Margaret Chan which whom she was also welcomed by along with WHO Regional Director Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab. The Crown Princess has been patron for WHO Regional Office for Europe since 2005. Another reason why Mary attended the reception, is because she was the one to receive the (World Health Organization) WHO Award for her work to improve healthcare solutions around the world. And from what I see, it was a great honor for Mary receiving the award. Afterwards she gave a speech as thanks for the award. A big a laud congratulation to Mary with this very fine and prestiges prize. I also want to wish Dr. Margaret Chan all the best with future projects.

Three hours after Mary received the WHO Award, she attended the presentation of the Elite-Forsk prizes 2017 taking place at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen. The Elite-Forsk prizes have been handed over since 2007 to five leading researchers in their field of research and Mary has attended several of them, so did she this year. She arrived in a great mood with a huge smile on her face ready to hand over the five prizes to professor Thomas Lars Andresen, professor Mikael Rask Madsen, professer Klaud Høyer, professer Søren Galatius and prosessor Hanne Christine Bertram. On stage with her was Education and Research Minister Søren Pind. Congratulations to all five winners! Before the presentation ceremony a few speeches were given and the Crown Princess listened with great interest. 

At both events Mary was dressed in the same dazzling outfit! She paired her grey tweed dress from Prada with beautiful accessories. This is the third time we get to see her in that incredible dress, here and here, but I really do not mind seeing it again. It's a lovely dress, perfect for this time a year. She embraced the classy style by wearing a pair of brand new diamond earrings shaped as flowers, couple of golden bracelet where one of them are from Cartier and then we have that magnificent latte clutch from Naledi Copenhagen. About the earrings then I think they have been found on an auction at Bruun Rasmussen from December 2016. I learned this from Kate, thanks! I wouldn't mind this dress with a bit more colourful accessories, still I think it works really well especially because of the dusty pink Gianvito Rossi pumps. I wonder if she was wearing a coat? I hope she was because the weather is windy and rainy these days. And of course, as always, Mary's hair and makeup was flawless!
