Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Sunday, November 29th

Crown Princess Mary attended the Christmas tree lighting ceremony held at Copenhagen City Hall Square.

Crown Princess Mary was invited to attend this celebration because this year is the 100th anniversary of a Christmas tree standing at the exact same spot at Copenhagen City Hall Square. Christmas is really all about traditions and the Christmas tree lighting ceremony has been a tradition since 2014 -with excepting twice during the second world war. The Crown Princess arrived to Copenhagen City Hall Square accompanied by Copenhagen's Mayor Frank Jensen. Despite the bad weather, hundreds of Danes showed up and seemed to enjoy the tradition such as the Crown Princess did. After a warm welcoming and a laud countdown she pushed the button and the tree lit up. It was also then covered with fake snow delivered by Santa himself. With a few pictures, lots of smiles and a "Merry Christmas" the Crown Princess enjoyed the evening and took plenty of time meeting the attending Danes.

The weather was really not that good -cold and windy. What we would call 'autumn' in Denmark. We even got a rather powerful storm in the evening. We could have lived without. Nevertheless, it gave Mary the opportunity to wear some of her pieces from her winter wardrobe. She kept herself warm in a bright red Diane von Fursteberg coat, first seen a couple of years ago, here, a grey turtleneck and black trousers. Maybe a pair of fitted trousers would have been better? I really can't decide. What do you think? Wide or tight? I completely fell in love with her hairstyle. Big and voluminous. Makes a great accessory just as the black heeled ankle boots from Gianvito Rossi and Hartmann's diamond earrings. A lovely inspiration for your own winter-look. Especially why you should consider a bright red winter coat instead of black or grey. Red looks magnificent no matter what you style is.
