It all starts with the Crown Prince couple arriving to Jysk Musikteater in Silkeborg where the two hosts welcome viewers of the show. What happens next made me smile. Crown Prince Frederik acted as host for a few minutes and it seems like he's having lots of fun. Meanwhile his wife enjoy the scene from first raw. The Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2017 is everything I hoped for; everything I wished it would be. A wonderful show with great music, lots of speeches, smiles and happy memories for all the winners. The prizes have now been handed over in 13 years. Amazing how time pass by with such speed and power. Both Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Crown Princess Mary really seemed to enjoy the evening from first raw. Several times they entered the stage, as hosts, to present and hand over four prizes. These are the prizes which were presented during the evening:

// The Crown Prince Couple's Culture Prize, which was given to Den Sorte Skole along with DKK 500,000.
// The Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize was handed over to the organization DIGNITY along with DKK 500,000
// The Crown Prince Couple's Stardust Prizes were received by the podcast Third Ear and designer Cecilie Bahnsen. Congratulations to all of them.

For me it has been a true pleasure to watch the show, though I didn't watch it live on Saturday. So, I talked about the show and now time is up for us to talk much more about what Mary was wearing at the event. For 13 years we have got to see Mary wear the most beautiful outfit -do you remember this here & here? Any favourites? This year she was dressed in a brand new blue dress featuring lace details. Usually we are left on our own trying to identify where her clothes are from. Sometime I wish she would be wearing clothes with a visual logo at front. That would make everything more easy for all of us. But this time was very different, because the making of her dress has been filmed and was then broadcasted during the show. Winner of one of the Crown Prince Couple's Stardust Prizes 2017, Cecilie Bahnsen created Mary's dress. According to an interview with the designer; Mary chose the colour herself. When she presented Cecilie Bahnsen as winner, she proudly showed off her very own dress with a great smile. At the arrival we got a glimpse of her white Prada coat and brand new Rupert Sanderson pumps. These were identified by Heaven afterwards. Seems like embellished pumps are incredibly popular right now. She embraced a chic and stylish evening outfit by wearing her J. Furnami clutch, Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings and white pearl ring such as a golden Cartier bracelet.

Museum Jorn in Silkeborg

It is with great pleasure I look forward to watch the Crown Prince couple's Prizes each year. This year is no exception. But more about the award show in my upcoming post. Now it is all about a visit somewhere else in Silkeborg. A Dane caught the couple arriving by train to Silkeborg, here, before they were about to visit Museum Jorn, here. The museum is dedicated to the Danish painter Asger Jorn and his masterpieces. 

Arriving to the museum in Silkeborg, the Crown Prince couple were warmly welcomed with flags, smiles, flowers and lots of greetings. Despite the cold many Danes showed up to get a glimpse of the couple, who took plenty of time meeting as many as possible before entering the museum. The royal couple got the chance to see the regular exhibition and the latest exhibition by the American artist Cindy Sherman. They were given a guided tour around the museum where they were introduced to, among other things, Jorn's very experimental approach to art. Agser Jorn is differently an artist, who has become famous for his own way of making art, here.

Before or after the Crown Prince couple visited the Museum Jorn, they participated a rehearsal for tonight's award show taking place in Jysk Musikteater in Silkeborg, here.

When the couple visited the museum in Silkeborg, Mary dazzled in a black an burgundy outfit perfectly matching the season and weather. She embrace a chic and stylish look by wearing a pair of brand new trousers in burgundy. I have already had several requests and seen many more. Therefor, I am a proud to tell you that I was actually able to identify them as Hugo Boss. She paired the new trousers with a black knitted blouse, which remain unidentified. But if you like the style Aiayu got a similar model also owned by Mary, here. Thought they look very much the same; it's not the case. Aiayu confirmed that to me in an email on a previous occasion. 

When arriving she wore a good old piece from Prada styled with a brand new brooch. When it comes to other jewellery worn during the visit, I see a pair of earrings which could be from Hartmann's and a few rings. The brooch is a creation by Marni.

Both pointed ankle boots from Hugo Boss, burgundy leather gloves and nail polish matched the rest of the outfit with such perfection. Makes me wanna try something similar. Frederik also looked very handsome in his navy trousers, beige sweater and brown blazer. They just make a great couple.

The Childen's Day 2017

Monday, November 20th

The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood when she, around noon, arrived to UNICEF in Copenhagen to attend the Children's Day. She was warmly welcomed with smiles, greetings and flowers. Despite the cold, everyone were in a great mood already from when the Crown Princess arrived. As part of her attendance, the Crown Princess gave a speech as key note speaker at the event. I have not read it yet, but I am quite she mentioned things from this years theme -education; national and globally.

Attending the Children's Day in Copenhagen, Mary was beautifully dressed in a bright blue dress and red coat. Both pieces are reused at previous occasions. The dress goes back to 2015 when she attended the Danish Home Guard's painting exhibition, here. It has never been identified. I have always had Prada in mind, but never really been able to confirm that. What thoughts have you had? When it comes to the magnificent red coat, it is completely different. First time she wore it, it was quickly identified as Diane von Furstenberg. Which means that this is the fourth time we see her wear it, herehere & here. She beautifully accessorized her look with several pieces from both Dulong Fine Jewelry, Orit Elhanati, Cartier and that little brooch from Women Deliver. At the arrival she showed us one of her latests new piece -a bright blue Prada bag perfectly matching the rest of her outfit. The two colours looks just great. She embraced a complete and polished look by wearing reused patent pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Anything you would like to change? -I can't mention a thing. I really like her hairstyle as well. Love the fact that it's a bit curly.

Visiting Danish Swimming Federation

Monday, November 13th

As patron of the Danish Swimming Federation, here, the Crown Princess visited the Danish swimming team, who are going to participate the European Championship short-circuit swimming.  The championship is taking from on December 13-17th in Royal Arena in Copenhagen. The visit was all unofficially from what I have been able to find out. Other than a couple of pictures, this is all I know about her visit. Seems like the Crown Princess really enjoyed herself meeting the team, such as the team seemed to find great pleasure in meeting the Crown Princess.

As little as I have been able to read about her visit, as little do I know about her clothes. The few pictures published have not revealed much -at least not to me. From what I Mary was wearing a very comfortable outfit. She wore a new grey blouse featuring a white turtleneck and hemline and black trousers. My guess is that she could be wearing some king of ankle boots or maybe even sneakers. On a couple of pictures it looks like she embraced the style by wearing a pair of diamond earrings. A simple and everyday makeup completed the look perfectly.

Accordring to Billed-Bladet the Crown Prince couple accompanied Prince Christian for the great football battle in Parken, Copenhagen, Saturday evening. Prince Joachim and his son Prince Felix also attended the game. They arrived along with a few friends shortly before the Crown Prince couple and they eldest son.

The game was taking place in the evening and judging from what the couple and their son were wearing, I guess it was a pretty old evening. The Crown Prince kept warm in a black wool coat. Prince Christian wore a cosy scar and down jacket. Meanwhile the Crown Princess dazzled in a brand new grey jacket/vest from Moncler. This 'strange' jacket and/or vest was identified by Heaven. A few more pictures have revealed that she wore jeans, a burgundy turtleneck and her black Dolce & Gabbana handbag and brand new wedges ankle boots. I have been looking everywhere to find them. I asked everybody, who could possibly help me. Nothing. Then I came across a similar model from a Danish shoe brand. A request confirmed my suggestion -Mary's new wedges boots are from Angulus.

#ChildMothers & Gender Diversity

Friday, November 10th

Crown Princess Mary arrived in a great mood to the Bella Center in Copenhagen on the day of the presentation. The new book was released on occasion of Bookforum 2017, here. The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed with flowers and greetings. It was as patron of UNFPS the Crown Princess attended the presentation of book #ChildMothers -17 girls stories about becoming a mother as a child. It is also as patron of the United Nations Population Fund that the Crown Princess has written the precepts of the new book. It tells the story of 17 girls from give different developing countries, who have all become mothers in a very young age. All the girls are between 12 and 15 years old. While visiting Burkina Faso last year, here & here, the Crown Princess met one of the girls from the book. During the visit she also talked about this trip and told about her experience. She also got a chance to meet with Pernille Fenger, CEO of UNFPA's nordic office. 

-Gender Diversity-
The Crow Princess also attended, as guest, the meeting Gender Diversity Roundtable Denmark, here, taking place in the UN City in Copenhagen. Members of Roundtable were gathered to discuss concrete tools and solutions on how to increase the number of female executives in Denmark -so far we got 15. Well, maybe it is actually time for more women to become top managers? Let us hope meeting's like these will give more women the opportunity. I strongly respect that the Crown Princess was representative at the meeting even though it was "just" as a guest. For several years, as protector of multiple organizations and foundations, she has fought for women and girls' well-being, health and rights. So, her presence is particularly important at such meetings and sends a strong signal to the outside world about her point of view. A great respect that she manage to become political though she can't vote or express herself about politics.

During, both the presentation of #ChildMothers and attending the Gender Diversity meeting, Mary was stunningly dressed in a brand new, bright red Isabel Marant blouse. It features the most incredible details. I learned about the identity at UFO No More, here. Think you should take a look if you don't already know about this site -just a tip. She embraced the style by pairing the new blouse with a black pencil skirt, which I think could be new as well. At the arrival we got a glimpse of her black Prada coat (worn a million times before) and her black Dolce & Gabbana first seen two years ago at Bookforum 2015here. Do you remember it? She looked absolutely wonderful in her business-chic outfit. Especially because of the jewellery she had chosen to wear from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. And of course the studded Valentino pumps. This outfit makes me wanna wear my pencil skirt again. How would you style a pencil skirt? -like Mary or completely different?

Aarhus: 10th anniversary conference

Thursday, November 9th

On Tuesday 7th the Crown Princess attended the first of two conferences held on occasion of the 10th anniversary of Free of Bullying. The program is made in collaboration of the Mary Foundation and Save the Children ten years ago. This is celebrated with two conferences -one in Copenhagen, here, and one in Aarhus. Crown Princess Mary arrived to Centralværkstedet in Aarhus with a great smile on her face. I imagine her being very proud of what the anti-bullying program has achieved the last ten years. CEO of the Mary Foundation Helle Østergaard and General Secretary of Save the  Children Jonas Keiding Lindholm also attended the conference along with the Crown Princess. The two of them were also present at the conference taking place in Copenhagen a few days ago.

Arriving to Aarhus Mary was dressed perfectly for the weather. She wore a lovely navy blue coat from Harris Wharf London. Royals & Fashion suggest Fonnesbech as a possible ID, here. What I know of we have never seen her in it before. The lovely pink printed scarf is differently new. A really lovely combination - navy blue and pink. Looks really great. Such as what she was wearing under the new coat. She embraced a wonderful fall outfit by wearing a blue Prada blouse and brand new trousers. Heaven suggested ZARA as a possible designer for this new piece. Take a look at the model below and the one Mary wore. Do you also see the similarities? A rather simple outfit, looking absolutely stunning because of all the accessories. She had chosen to wear a blue handbag from Prada, jewellery from both Orit Elhanati, Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Love the fact that both earrings, bracelet and necklace match with such perfection. Her amazing snake pumps are from Prada. Incredible designs.

Hackathon symposium

Tuesday, November 7th

Earlier in the morning the Crown Princess attended the 10th anniversary conference for the Free of Bullying program made in collaboration of the Mary Foundation and Save the Children ten years ago, here. In the afternoon she attended the Hackathon symposium as patron of the Maternity Foundation, here. The symposium is organized, among others, the Maternity Foundation, UNFPA and the Danish Foreign Ministry.

The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed with flowers, huge smiles and greetings at the arrival. She attended the symposium as guest of honor. During the weekend representatives from several different organizations etc. have developed new, innovative possible solutions supporting sexual- and reproductive health and rights for women and girls on the run. Especially focusing on how technology can be useful. Later on, the best idea was announced. The Crown Princess showed her support and interest by giving a remarkable opening speech.

At the Hackathon symposium Mary was beautifully dress in a lovely combination of purple and grey. I am absolutely stunned by this combo. Never really thought it would look good, but it really does. What was your first thought? The first thing my eyes caught was her new shoes. Trying to identify them Alaïa and Jimmy Choo crossed my mind. I had no luck at all -Heaven did. She managed to find her new ankle boots at Alaïa. Take a look at the incredible design. They look just great. Other than the shoes, she wore a matching Hugo Boss clutch and what I believe could be a new golden ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Did you also noticed the golden Orit Elhanati necklace? So, this time we started with her accessories. Now on to everything else she was wearing. Mary embraced a chic winter style by wearing a reused blouse identified by Royals & Fashion, here, as Prada and matching trousers. The blouse goes has been worn here and here. When do you think she wore it better? My favourite is differently the one from the Hackathon symposium. Then we only have one piece left to talk about -the coat. No, it is not new. In 2007 she wore it the first time when she visited her friend Caroline Flemming in London, here. A few years back I managed to find it at Prada. I absolutely adore her outfit from the symposium.

Copenhagen: 10th anniversary conference

Tuesday, November 7th

KongehusetRoyals & FashionBilled-BladetFrederik et MaryDaily Mail

For ten years the Mary Foundation and Save the Children's program Free of Bullying has helped children combat bullying, get more confident and learned the importance of a good community. This is also the basis idea of the program; that community among children can prevent bullying. Even outside Denmark, the program has become quite popular. Now it is time to celebrate the 10th anniversary, which is done with a conference. And of course did the Crown Princess attend -both a committed to the program and as founder and chairwoman of the foundation. She arrived to Docken in Copenhagen with a huge smile on her face. She was in a really good mood during the conference. CEO of the Mary Foundation Helle Østergaard and General Secretary of Save the Children Jonas Keiding Lindholm also attended the celebration. The two of them and the rest of the participants carefully listened when the Crown Princess gave her speech.

This is just one of two conferences. The first one takes place on November 7th in Copenhagen. The other one is in Aarhus on November 9th. The Crown Princess will be present at both.

Attending the conference in Copenhagen on Tuesday, Mary was beautifully dressed in a chic work-wear outfit. She embrace the style by wearing blue in many different shades. The blazer has been worn by her at an occasion back in 2015, here. Do you remember it? Love it the first time. Love it as much now. Looks great combined with that light blue Prada blouse, which goes way back in time. She matched all of it with blue accessories as well. At the arrival I also spotted a blue Prada bag. So,  Other than a bag Mary embraced a chic business-style by wearing earrings matched with a ring from Pomellato, such as her golden Orit Elhanati necklace and blue suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Another detail I have come to love pricelessly, is her hairstyle. Wauw. And her makeup as well. Flawless, polished and very suitable for the outfit and occasion. Anything you would like to change? -I got nothing.

Hubertus hunt in Dyrehaven

Sunday, November 5th

It has been a tradition for quite some years for the Danish royal family members, at least some of them, to attend the Hubertus hunt in Dyrehaven near the Eremitage palace, here. This year Crown Princess Mary enjoyed a day in Dyrehaven accompanied by all four children -Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine. The Hubertus hunt goes back to 1900 and has taken place since then on the first Sunday in November. Yes, very little changes in Denmark. To me it looks like the four royal children really enjoyed a day along with their mother and vice versa. From the balcony of the Eremitage palace the family closely followed the hunt; the Crown Princess with a cop of coffee in her hands. Following, the five royal members enjoyed a ride in Dyrehaven in an open coach. Several picture show that the family spend much time chatting with people also attending the hunt and the two princesses couldn't stay away from the horses.

We have already seen many lovely outfits the last few years when Mary and the children have attended the Hubertus hunt in Dyrehaven. I found some, here here. This year Mary was dressed in a cosy, warm outfit probably because of the rather cold weather. She dazzled in a new knitted turtleneck, a new down vest from Seeland, a reused green coat and slim jeans. Maybe not the most exciting combo but wait till you see it. Looks just great. I got a strong idea that the knitted turtleneck could be from Ralph Lauren. About her coat I am way more confident. A good friend of mine, Kate, managed to identify the coat even though it is 2012, here. And it is from Burberry. Unfortunately, I'm not able to share a link with you other than to another blogger, who shared a picture, here

She also showed up wearing a pair of brand new suede boots in green. Not sure I like them very much nor have I found them yet. Any ideas? I would really like to hear your opinion on this one. Tried everything and I still haven't got a clue where they are from. Mary accessorized her look with not just one, but two bags. One new. One old. The old one goes a few years back and is from DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. The other one is a brand new leather tote bag from Prada. Haven't found the right colour but I'm pretty sure I got the right model. Other than that she embraced a chic winter style by wearing diamond earrings and a matching ring from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

Christmas stamp 2017 & TUBA's 20th anniversary

Friday, November 3rd

-Christmas Stamp 2017-
The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood when she arrived to the City Hall in Copenhagen. Here she was about to reveal the annual Christmas Stamp 2017. It was at patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation she attended the presentation. For several years the Crown Princess has participated in the revealing. Two years ago, in 2015, she attended along with her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe, who presented her own design, here. This year the stamps, here, are created by the Danish illustrator and author Michael Wettendorff, who also attended the presentation. After the grand presentation, a few speeches and many smiles the Crown Princess attended a reception. She took plenty of time talking to the kids, who have participated the Christmas Seal Homes' program including how to handle and prevent bullying and weight loss. The Crown Princess listened with great interest and the kids gladly told her about their stay at the homes.

-20th anniversary-
After having attended the annual presentation of the Christmas Stamp 2017, the Crown Princess attended a reception on occasions of TUBA's 20th anniversary. The reception took place in Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen. She was warmly welcomed at the arrival by Henrik Appel, who is head of TUBA. On a daily basis TUBA offer free help, therapy and counseling to young people between 14 and 35, who grew up in a home with alcohol abuse from one or both parents, here. In 2014 TUBA received the Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize, here, for their inspiring and incredible work to help young people in Denmark. It is not the first the Crown Princess has met with people from TUBA. In 2015 she attended a group therapy session with users of the fund. As in 2015, the Crown Princess had plenty of time listening to the young people's stories.

At both events, the presentation of this years Christmas Stamp and at the 20th anniversary reception, Mary was beautifully dressed in a purple blouse and matching skirt. Both pieces have been worn before a couple of times in the very same combo. Think the first time was in 2016 when she visited Moldova, here. Do you recall having seen the outfit before? Well, I can't get enough of the colours. A very suitable colour next to her skin and lovely brown hair. Nor the blouse or skirt have yet been identified and I still do not know where to find them. So, if you got an idea I'd love to hear from you. All ideas are welcome. What I do know is that she was wearing diamond earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen seen at multiple occasions, such as her grey calfskin clutch from Quidam. She matched it all with snakeskin pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Despite all these reused pieces, she was also wearing one brand new. Did you notice it? A few pictures show her from behind. You know what I'm referring to? Yes, you're right -her new hair clip. These specific hair clips have become very popular among Danish women in all ages. A friend of mine got one and I fell in love with it right away. Now I love it even more. It's not very expensive, so maybe a Christmas present to yourself? Let me know if you buy one. Think I probably need one myself.

Thursday, November 2nd

Kongehuset 1Instagram 1 2 3Frederiket et Mary 1Royals & FashionBilled-Bladet ● BT

-Inauguration of Nøvling School-
On Thursday November 2nd the Crown Princess visited Gistrup. Here she attended the inauguration of Nøvling School, which since February 2017 has undergone a major renovation. The school goes back to 1962. Now teaching can take place in newly renovated buildings. That was what the Crown Princess was invited to celebrate with the school's children and staff. At the arrived she was kindly welcomed by headteacher Lene Burchardt and a sweet flower girl. Already from the arrival the Crown Princess was in a splendid mood with a warm smile on her face. Traditionally, she cut a red ribbon with a golden scissors to officially inaugurate the new building's. The visit at Nøvling School also had time for a tour around the new facilities. The Crown Princess was also shown how movement can make learning more exciting. This was demonstrated by a school class, who gladly showed the Crown Princess how to do some tricks on her own, which seemed to amuse her a lot.

Nøvling School is also a part of the Free of Bullying-program made in collaboration between the Mary Foundation and Save the Children.

-The annual meeting with school leaders-
After a wonderful visit at Nøveling School where she had just inaugurated new building's, the Crown Princess arrived to Aalborg Congress- and culture center. Here she was about to attend the annual meeting with school leaders. In Aalborg she was welcomed with smiles, greetings and a beautiful bouquet of flowers, here. Over 1500 school leaders from all over Denmark were gathered in Aalborg along with the Crown Princess to participate the annual meeting. It was with focus on preschool -how school is of great importance to children and in the end, the Danish society. As part of her attending the meeting the Crown Princess entered the stage in front of all the other participants and gave a remarkable speech. In the opening speech she pointed out how important 'community' is to all of us. For her it is where learning begins.

Autumn has, once and for all, arrived to Denmark. So I completely understand her choice in clothes. Mary was beautifully dressed in a brand new printed piece and a reused black jacket. Let's talk about the jacket first. It goes years back. When we first saw it I can't tell but she has worn it several times, here. I never been able to identify the jacket. She belted up the jacket with an old Céline belt. Then she was wearing this brand new piece, what I first thought was skirt. At Royals & Fashion I learned it is a in fact a pleated dress from Julie Fagerholt Heartmade. I haven't decided whether or not I like her new dress. Someone who has an opinion they want to share? Mary then accessorized the outfit with golden jewellery from both Orit Elhanati and Dulong Fine Jewelry. Once again, we got to see her Quidam clutch. Seems to be her favourite model right now. We haven't seen any other clutch for what... about a week now. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful clutch and it looks great to her outfit. Note that she olny wore the clutch when she attended the annual meeting in Aalborg. Mary had then chosen a pair of black suede Prada boots and a lovely wool scarf to keep warm.

UNFPA's State of World Population Report 2017

Wednesday, November 1st

KongehusetRoyals & FashionBilled-BladetFrederik et Mary ● Instagram

It was both as guest of honor and patron of UNFPA that the Crown Princess attended the presentation of the UNFPA's State of World Population Report 2017, here. The report focuses on, among other things, sexual- and reproductive health and rights, which means you are have the right to decide on your own body. On Wednesday the event took place at the Medical Museum in Copenhagen that daily gives visitors the opportunity to experience the cultural heritage of medicine. She arrived in the afternoon with a large smile on her face and a great spirt. During her visit she took plenty of time small talk with everyone crossing her way.

The Medical Museum is jut around the corner of Frederik VIII's palace. This is probably why the Crown Princess chose to walk home after having attended the launch of UNFPA's State of World Population Report 2017.

Attending the launch at the Medical Museum in Copenhagen Mary was beautifully dressed in a true autumn outfit. Despite the lack of colours I have to say that I have completely fallen in love with her look. She match a new pair of dark grey trousers with her reused leather-trimmed blazer from Heltmut Lang and that lovely knitted blouse. By the way, do you remember having seen her in the blazer before? Well, I collected all of them if you are interested, here, here, here & here. Mary embraced this chic autumn style by wearing some pretty cool accessories -diamond earrings, a long necklace from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, a black braided Bottega Veneta bag and brand new heels. The shoes are embellished and features a thick heel. True 60's style. When first writing this post I suggested ZARRA as a possible identification for her new shoes. With help from a good friend of mine they have now been identified as Apair. A designer we have seen her wear before on a couple of occasions, but it is quite a long time ago. The more I look at the shoes; the more I love them. I truly hope she will be wearing them soon again to get a better look at them.

The whole Danish royal family were gathered at Christiansborg in Copenhagen to attend the celebration of the 500 anniversary of the reformation. Both Queen Margrethe, the Crown Prince couple, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte attended the celebration. It took place in the Landstings Hall at Christiansborg castle -where the family each year attend the opening of the Parliament and where many gala dinners also takes place each year. The Queen herself i patron of the big celebration of the 500 anniversary of the reformation, which all started in Germany with Martin Luther's 95 theses. Today it still matter. Everyone seemed to be in a splendid mood on Tuesday during the morning when the celebration took place. The Queen also gave a remarkable speech in front of all the participants including her own family sitting in first raw.

Mary was beautifully dressed in simply black and white. In a way I had no idea what to expect from her at the event. First of all because I had completely forgot all about it and second because you never know what to expect when it comes to Mary and her clothes. 

She really impressed me, such as her sister-in-law did with her outfit. Mary showed up at Christiansborg, dressed in a white peplum jacket from Ralph Lauren, seen a couple of times before, and a brand new black pleated skirt featuring white flowers. The last couple of days I have tried to identify her new pleated skirt. And you know what? -I actually think I found it. Marc by Marc Jacobs is the one. The print and all looks exactly the same to me. I found several websites where to purchase the skirt and the print is located differently in each one of them. Make a quick search and you know what I mean. 

As accessories she had chosen a reused Susanne Juul creation, a golden Orit Elhanati necklace and other jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry. A lovely combination. Other than that, she belted up the jacket with a Prada belt featuring a bow, a Quidam clutch and her two-tone Gianvito Rossi pumps. What a treat.

-Gala concert-
On occasion of the 500 reformation anniversary celebrated at Christiansborg earlier in the morning, the six royal members attended a gala concert in the evening. It took place in DR's concert hall in Copenhagen. Princess Benedikte arrived first, then Prince Joachim and Princess Marie followed by the Crown Prince couple and then Queen Margrethe arrived last. The Queen is patron of the grand celebration and has attended several events during the past months on the occasions. Both DR Symphony Orchestra and DR Vocal Ensemble contributed to a festive evening with lots of music from both Bach and Wagner. From what I see all of them really seemed to look forward to a wonderful evening in DR's concert hall along with all the other invited guests. I imagine a spectacular atmosphere in the room full of people and lots of beautiful music.

The Queen stunned in a bright pink evening dress, Princess Marie looked great in a black dress, Princess Benedikte dazzled wearing a metallic lace dress while Mary blew me away wearing a brand new embroidered dress. Many designers, like Prada and YDE Copenhagen, have been mentioned as possibilities to identify this amazing new dress. Personally, I was on the YDE Copenhagen-team. Who did you vote for? Now Heaven has actually been able to find out who in fact created her dress. It turns out to be a custom made dress from Bach Copenhagen, here. A really beautiful dress and that looks gorgeous on her. Maybe we are going to see her in their designs again in the future? -I hope so. Keeping everything classy she embrace the style by wearing blue accessories as well. Aquamarine blue chandelier earrings, which I have heard is a gift from her husband created by Dulong Fine Jewelry but please, that I have nothing that proves it. Then she wore a reused satin blue clutch from Prada and matching Gianvito Rossi pumps. Think I got a glimpse of her golden Cartier bracelet as well. And take a look at that magnificent hairstyle. Simply gorgeous.

'Under Bjælken' by Jens Andersen

On November 1st a new book is about to be released in Denmark. The book is portrait about the Crown Prince. It is written by author Jens Andersen on occasion of the future King's 50 birthday in 2018 and is called Under Bjælken -a portrait of Crown Prince Frederikhere. In eight chapters his story is told by himself, his wife, brother, parents, friends etc. Last Friday the Crown Prince received the very first copy of the book and on that occasion five photos have been published.

Almost immidietly the newly published book about the Crown Prince was out of stock. On the publisher's site it is still temporarily out of stock. Well, I found another thing made i relation to the publication. In collaboration with the author Jens Andersen, he created a list on Spotify including 159 of his favourite songs representing his life. So, if you didn't get your hands on the book. Then listen to some of his favourite songs instead, here.

II Update
It is about two weeks ago the new book was launched and it still got people's attention -mine as well. I haven't read it yet but hopeful I will. Some of those who purchased the book already shared some wonderful pictures with the rest of us. Frederik et Mary reposted them, here. Makes me want the book even more. Did any of you purchase it? 

Symposium on brain injuries

Monday, October 30th

KongehusetRoyals & FashionFrederik et Mary ● Hjernesagen 1

Crown Princess Mary has acted patron of Hjernesagen, here, since 2007. She has attended several different events since then. On Monday she attended one more -a symposium on research on brain injuries. The Crown Princess arrived to Hotel Vejlefjord in Vejle around noon where she was warmly welcomed with smiles, handshakes and flowers. From front raw the Crown Princess had the best view to the stage, which she was about to enter given her speech. The speech was given in front of participating professionals and other stakeholders in Denmark. The purpose of the symposium was to convey new knowledge about, among others, blood clots and bleeding in the brain. It was with great interest I think the Crown Princess attended the symposium in Vejle on Monday.

Autumn has arrived to Denmark. It is now windy, cold and the trees are almost bare for leaves. This means warm clothes are needed and colours like burgundy, navy blue and mustard are now allowed again. That is exactly what Mary did. She was dressed in her lovely burgundy suit from Elise Gug (AW13). Do you remember we have seen it before? It goes back to 2014 when Mary visited Estonia as chairwoman of the Mary Foundation, here. Loved it then. Love it now. I am very pleased to see her wear the suit again. The colour looks great on hear. When she arrived to the hotel in Vejle she dazzled wearing a reused scarf featuring grey and burgundy colours. I haven't been able to identify the scarf yet, so if you have an idea I'd love to hear from you. Mary then accessorized the outfit by wearing a beautiful brooch also from Elise Gug, a black pearl bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelry, a Cartier bracelet and diamond Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen rings. With a little help from one of you I finally managed to see what pair of shoes she was wearing -black snakeskin pumps. The same as when she attended the presentation of Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2017, here. At that time I suggested Prada as a possible designer. I still believe it as a possibility but I haven't found the right model yet. What I did see is her grey calfskin Quidam clutch.
