Opening of the Danish Parliament 2017

Tuesday, October 3rd

Each year on the first Tuesday in October, the Danish parliament are gathered to celebrate the beginning of new year for the Parliament. The traditions goes way back, such as the fact that members of the Danish royal family attend the opening -because that is what it is; the opening of the Danish Parliament. As usual the opening took place at Christiansborg castle in Copenhagen. Members of the Parliament arrived one by one followed by six royal family members. First Princess Benedikte, the Queen's sister, then Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Marie who were followed by the Crown Prince couple and last the Queen herself arrived shortly before noon. Both Princess Benedikte, Princess Marie, Crown Princess Mary and Queen Margrethe were welcomed with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Inside the Parliament hall the Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen was about to give the annual speech. The royal family members watched it all from their balcony to the right of the Prime Minister.

I tend to say 'of course' did Mary wear something spectacular at the opening of the Parliament. I rarely get disappointed of what she is wearing at the opening -some outfit's I like better than others, but else... At this years event she was dressed in her reused Claes Iversen coat featuring the most incredible details. Just look at the fabric and the way it beautifully opens and closes because of the design. I have heard several different opinions about the colour. To me it is differently blue. What colour do you see? As I mentioned, Mary has worn the coat on one other occasion before the opening on Tuesday. It was in March 2017 when the Belgium King Philippe and his wife Queen Mathilde visited Denmark on an official state visit with Queen Margrethe as hostess, here. Beautifully she matched her dreamy coat with purple accessories from both Jane Taylor (hat), Carlend Copenhagen (clutch) and suede gloves. We even got to see that stunning brooch again as worn last year on occasions of King Carl Gustaf's 70th birthday, here. Do you remember it? She probably has worn it more than once, such as with the Orit Elhanati necklace, Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelet and nude pointed Prada pumps. Even her red nail polish matched her bouquet.

I would also like to make a short comment on what her sister-in-law wore during the annual opening. Princess Marie's outfit remind me so much of what Mary wore last year, here. Thought I know Marie  wore a coat and Mary a skirt and peplum. Still, I see resemblance in the two outfits. Maybe the colour combo? Or perhaps the hat?
