Birthday party at Tranekær castle

Saturday, August 8th

Crown Princess Mary attended the 50th birthday party of Count Christian and his wife Countess Mette Ahlefeldt-Laurvig. The birthday party was held at Tranekær Castle -the Count and Countess' home on Langeland. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie also attend the celebration. Crown Prince Frederik did not attend because of a pneumonia. 

What an entrance! Without her husband next to her, Crown Princess Mary arrived to Tranekær Castle on Langeland. If she was fascinated by the huge red castle in front of her, I understand why. Two years ago me and my family was on vacation close to Tranekær Castle and we all love to go around and see the palaces and castles located in the vicinity of where we are. In my family we are all very interested in history. There's something magical about castles. History tell us who we are and who we were. History created our society -whether or not we like it. Tranekær has a long history back to 12th century. The castle has a quite interesting history and if you want you can read all about it here. I really think you should take the time. The Crown Princess made a fast and elegant entrance accompanied by Claus and Anna von Lowzow. You may remember the name of the woman. She made the documentary The Royal Jewellery broadcasted on Danish television in 2011. A magnificent documentary.

To a party like this, knee length dresses are not that suitable. Floor length is indeed. Mary chose a figure hugging gown in black featuring yellow- and blue flowers. Lately, Mary has worn clothes I have had a hard time identifying, but this one wasn't hard to find at all. Similar to the dress from September 10th 2014, here, this one is also from Erdem. Obviously, right? Thanks to Pernille, Kate, Royals & Fashion to let me know about the designer. The dress has actually been worn by Kelly Ripa as well, here. After a closer look I found out that she wore a black gown at the party. It would also have been great in a midnight blue colour as the shorter model. Instead Mary embrace the style with bright blue accessories. The qquamarine blue chandelier earrings featuring small diamonds was shining next to her elegant hairstyle. The story tells that her earrings was a gift from her husband Crown Prince Frederik. We may never know if it is true. As other jewellery she wore several Anni Lu and Charlotte Wæhrens bracelets. Then there is her brand new clutch. A bright blue clutch with a huge diamond square stone on top. With the help from Pernille, I now can tell you that it's from one of her favourite designers: PradaPernille & Kate they made my thoughts a reality because I had a feeling that her blue pumps were new and from Gianvito Rossi and they found the exact same model, despite they do not know each other and live miles away apart. When you have been fascinated by the Crown Princess for many years as the three of us, you recognize new thing pretty fast. It had become a strength or maybe weakness. Maybe you also noticed that she, once again, wore a coral nail polish? My only comment is: welcome to the 60s! Hair and makeup are beautifully done.
