The Cancer Society's Honorary Award 2016

Tuesday, February 4th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of the Cancer Society's Honorary Award 2016 in Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen, on occasion of World Cancer Day.

Earlier in the morning the Crown Princess participated a conference on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Humanitarian Crises at Christiansborg Castle where she gave the opening speech, here. It was a speech which caused quite a stir among the other participants. 

In the afternoon she attended the presentation of the Cancer Society's Honorary Award 2016. It is the fourth time she has the pleasure to hand over the award on occasion of World Cancer Day. It took place in Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen. She arrived in an excellent mood with a big smile on her face. She was differently on top of the game. The Crown Princess acted all calm. I think it was a great honor for her to, once again, to present the honorary award. She was clearly moved when entering the stage. Also when she presented the ward to Nurse and youth coordinator Maiken Hjerming. Maiken Hjerming has been nominated by five young cancer patients to receive the award this year. She has helped to launch Kræftværket, which is a hospital ward for young cancer patients aged 15-29. She has several years of experience in how solitude often can be a part of cancer patients life. With the award of DKK 50,000 the Cancer Society want to highlight the special efforts and outstanding example to inspire others to give cancer patients optimal treatment and care, here.

Now we are talking. Mary wore a brand new figure-hugging dress. Shortly after the first pictures were published I received ideas about who could be the designer and the fact that two other royals had worn a similar dress at previous events. Mary was wearing a similar dress as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, on her engagement day, here. Also Duchess Stephanie of Luxembourg has been seen in the same dress. This new blue dress is from Issa. I learned about its identity from Lurdes and Kate. Looks just great on her. A perfect dress for any time a day because of the colour and rather simple style. Mary added a pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps and Prada clutch in a matching colour. Both of these accessories were worn at a birthday party at Tranekær castle on August 8th 2015, here. At the arrival she wore her grey JOSEPH coat as a cape. Lately, she has chosen longer coats and worn them in new ways. She accessorized the outfit with white gold rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and Marianne Dulong earrings featuring a blue drop-shaped pendant. As with the rest of the outfit, her hair and makeup were flawless -a chignon and red berry lips. What's not to love?
