Flag day 2017

Tuesday, September 5th


Both Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Crown Princess Mary were very emotional when attending activities on occasion of Flag Day 2017 -an annual event held for the ninth time, honoring Danish deployed soldiers. Early in the morning the Crown Prince couple visited Kartellet in Copenhagen to place a wreath in honor of soldiers who were lost in battle; one way or another. The wreath placed at Kartellet featured the Crown Prince couple´s monogram. The Crown Prince and Crown Princess also attended a memorial service in Holmens church in Copenhagen. Both of them were moved by the atmosphere in the church along with everyone else attending the service. The service was followed by a parade at Thorvaldsens square next to Christiansborg castle in Copenhagen. Also Prince Joachim and Princess Marie attended activities during the day on occasion of the Flag Day. Both couple's attended the parade at Thorvaldens sqaure. Actually it is the first time both Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Marie are present at the parade in each others company. A memorable day, full with mixed emotions. 


It is not the first time the Crown Prince couple attend activities on occasion of the Flag Day. Each time Mary has been beautifully and appropriately dressed for the occasion. This year she honored the Danish soldiers wearing her reused white Hugo Boss dress and Prada coat in black. Both dress and coat have been worn several times before, here, here. She embrace a sophisticated style by wearing wide-brimmed straw hat from Susanne Juul, Hartmann's diamond earrings and her golden twisted Orit Elhanati necklace. Both suede gloves, beige Hugo Boss clutch and pointed pumps matched the rest of her outfit when attending Flag Day in Copenhagen. She also wore a very beautiful brooch on the left side of her chest. Immediately I started thinking about the possibility if Mary has worn it before. Right away I came across a visit at the Children's Aid Foundation on January 26 2007, here. Mary was wearing a pair of new pumps in a beige/blush colour. At first Gianvito Rossi was suggested as the designer, but I was not quite sure about this. Then Pura Lopez (SS2015) came to my mind and when Kate suggested the same, I had to do something. By request it has been confirmed that her pumps are from Pura Lopez. I think Mary's outfit is a very nobel way of honoring the Danish soldiers.

  1. I agree with you: I am not sure either that her shoes are the one we already know!
    They might be new and from Gianvito Rossi... we need a close up!

    1. Thanks for letting me know what you think about this little 'shoe-dilemma'.
      For sure we need close-ups, but I haven't been able to find any. I have a hard time defining the colour and what they are made of -I think they are patent pumps in beige, but...
