Finally, the Mexican Presidential couple has now arrived to Denmark. Actually they arrived yesterday at Copenhagen airport around dinner time in one of the worlds most expensive plains.  President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera were warmly welcomed by Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik and the rest of the Danish royal family. Shortly after the welcoming ceremony, two crown cars drove to Fredensborg Palace -one with Queen Margrethe and President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and another car with Prince Henrik and Mrs Angélica Rivera, to officially welcome the couple. Like the welcoming ceremony at the airport, the ceremony at Fredensborg has become a tradition. While the Presidential couple are in Denmark they are staying at Fredensborg in one of the many rooms. In the meantime, the Crown Prince couple drove to Kronborg castle in Helsingør. About an hour President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera also arrived to Helsingør. All in a perfect mood the couple's were given a guided tour inside Kronborg to see, among others, the Banquet Hall also called the Dancing Hall. Then a little something to drink and then of to the M/S Museum of Maritime located close to the water just like the caste. Back in 2013 the Crown Prince couple visited Mexico, here, and have already met the Presidential couple once before. Both couples seemed to have had a really good day in each others company.

It was at 1:00 pm. local time the Mexican Presidential couple arrived to Copenhagen airport ready to spend two days in Denmark accompanied by the Danish royal family. In second raw was Mary standing. Lightning up like a true royal lady in her ombre Missoni coat. Thrilled to see her wear it again. I'm sure you remember it from their visit to Saudi Arabia and Qatar only a few months ago, here. Finally without black trousers. According to Royals & Fashion, hereare Mary's sky high pointed pumps are from Gianvito Rossi. Each year I think her pumps get higher and higher. Unbelievable how she is able to walk in those heels. I really can't get enough of black pumps. Super classy and elegant. Mary seems to have the same philosophy because of all the different pairs of black pumps she owns. Then we have the little grey Naledi Copenhagen clutch, which I really think is a great match to what she was wearing. It is one of her first Naledi Copenhagen purchases. At the arrival Mary had this beautiful hairdo wearing a hat -my guess would differently be a creation from milliner Susanne Juul. To loosen it up, she appeared without hat and hairdo when she and Frederik welcomed the Mexican Presidential couple at Kronborg castle in Helsingør a few hours later. She accessorized her look with a pair of black leather gloves, diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and pink diamond studs from Hartmann's. Aesthetic, stylish and extremely polished. By the way, I believe she added a Céline belt to create the illusion of an hourglass shape. A sincere compliment to Mrs Angélica Rivera because of her bright green dress.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik hosted a gala dinner in the evening at Fredensborg. As you know Prince Henrik retired in the beginning of 2016. Despite that he attended both the welcoming ceremony and yesterday evenings gala dinner. The arrival and the Queen's speech were broadcasted two hours after the actually arrival, which I of course watched. One by one, did the special guests arrive; ladies in magnificent dresses and gentlemen's in black suits. All cameras were set and ready for the royal family to arrive. First came Princess Benedikte, then Prince Joachim and his sweet wife Princess Marie who was dressed in a smashing red lace gown. They were followed by the Crown Prince couple. The reason why we didn't see Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik and the Presidential couple arrive, is because they are all staying at Fredensborg where the dinner is held. Before the dinner, all guests were serviced a glass of champagne. From another entrance, the royal family members and the guests of honor found their seats around the long main table. With a remarkable speech Queen Margrethe opened the evening and warmly welcomed President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera in Denmark.

It's not the first time Mary choose to wear something as colourfull and bright as at this gala dinner. She was truly queen of the night. I was so excited when I first saw what dress she was wearing -a good old evening gown by Jesper Høvring (collection: Spring/Summer 2013). Høvring commented in the live broadcast but didn't mention anything about his own design worn by Mary. By the way do you remember the dress? She wore it back in 2013 at a dinner on occasion of the coronation of King Wilhelm-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, here. I hadn't forgotten about the dress, but it amazes me how much I like it. Actually Mary wore it one more time before last night. It was in 2012 when she attended a gala dinner on occasion of the wedding between Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy in Luxembourg. Three very beautiful outfits. This time she has chosen to wear the red evening gown with golden glitter pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a brand new golden clutch. Pernille an Kate told me about her pumpsShe also dazzled wearing her stunning new tiara purchased at Bruun Rasmussen auctions along with a pair of matching earrings. I was also overwhelmed by her hairstyle. Did you notice it?
