Day 1. Visiting Tajikistan

Thursday, October 23rd

Crown Princess Mary is visiting Tajikistan for two days as member and patron of the WHO Regional Office for Europe, focusing on maternal- and child health.

Crown Princess Mary during her day in Tajikistan

The last couple of years the Crown Princess has spend much of her working time (maybe even spare time) committed to work with improvement on healthcare. Especially when it comes maternal- and child health Mary has used her voice to speak out laud. Now she is on a two days official visit in Tajikistan to see for herself what they have been doing to improve healthcare for women with newborns and the children. The Crown Princess is also introduced to initiatives about vaccines and how they have helped improving the WHOs european region's health situation. On her first day she visited the pediatric department in the capital city Dushanbe followed by a visit at the local hospital in Varzob. Here she attended the inauguration of a so called 'vaccine day'. In Varzob she also payed a visit to Chorbogh, a rehabilitation center for children. A wonderful day in Tajikistan. 

Usually I have high expectations when Mary is abroad, but this time I didn't. I really don't know why. Maybe I was just ready to be surprised. And I was! In a very positive way. Mary was dressed like a graceful waterlily in her old Prada (RTW Spring 2004) skirt and powder pink silk blouse (from same designer as the skirt)! When Mary turned 40 some really amazing pictures were taken of her for Berlingske (a Danish newspaper) where she wore the exact same blouse, here. The main reason why I mention this is because some of you might want to have a closer look at the blouse. Even her cardigan, which looks new to me, was in the same magnificent colour as the blouse. The combination of the pink top and the grey pencil skirt is simply outstanding. The pencil skirt was seen first time back in 2004, here, when she attended the opening of the art museum ARoS in Aarhus. At the arrival to Tajikistan she wore a short jacket, also in pink which has been seen at a previous occasion before this one. It was when she attended the kidneys day in 2014, here. She embrace the elegant style with one of her nude bags from Prada, rose quartz earrings from Marianne Dulong and a couple of diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard. These are the earrings she was wearing the day we saw little Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine for the first time, here. Good memories! Think I also see her golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet featuring a pink diamond ball. To match the bag Mary wore a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

Crown Princess Mary attending dinner

It was a guest of honor the Crown Princess attended a dinner in the evening which took place at Asia Grande Hotel in Dushanbe. Everything was perfectly decorated when Mary arrived. Flowers were arranged on the beautifully decorated tables. Before the dinner was about to take place, she and a few others got the opportunity to taste some local baked bread, something she seemed to enjoy. Also Minister of Healthcare Salimzoda were invited to attend the fine dinner. I have only been able to find very little information about what happened, but what I know for sure is that a some kind of entertainment entertained during the evening, because right next to the tables was a stage.

A dinner takes the perfect outfit, no doubt about that. Think you would probably say the same. No real dinner without the right outfit. What Mary did was show up in the most incredible (new) blue dress featuring some wonderful ruffle details and a something to show of her rather thin waist. For hours have I tried to figure out where this little wonder might be from, but so far I have not been able to find anything that comes near this. Marc Jacobs is the first designer that came to me and he still is the one I think designed this new dress but I can't find a thing. What do you think? Any ideas? Unfortunately we only have very few pictures from the dinner, such as very little information. What I see from the pictures is her black pearl Marianne Dulong bracelet and a large pair of colourful earrings. As the dress, I would really like to find out where the earrings are from. So if you have any ideas I'd love to hear from you.
