A UEFA donation

Thursday, March 22nd

Packed up in a warm jacket, the Crown Princess arrived to Brøndby Stadium in Copenhagen to received a very special donation -the UEFA Foundation for Children donation. The Crown Princess received the €50,000 donation as chairwoman of the Mary Foundation for future work to to ensure children's well-being and avoid bullying in football clubs in Denmark. The Mary Foundation and DBU have worked together on several other occasions to aiming a better environment for children in Danish football clubs. It was with a great smile and pride I think, the Crown Princess was handed over the donation. Congrats to the Crown Princess and her foundation with the very fine reward.

The donation was handed over during a game between Denmark and Panama, which the Crown Princess enjoyed along with the other over 10,000 people at Brøndby Stadium.

Truly it was a cold evening when Mary visited Brøndby to received the prestiges donation for her foundation. Guess that's why she had chosen to cover herself up in a cosy and warm outfit. She dazzled in a blueish turtleneck, which I am 99.9% sure was also worn during a trip to Greenland in 2014, here. It has never been identified. This cosy turtleneck was styled with slim jeans and her rather large grey jacket first worn at a football game in Parken in November last year, here. At this time it was identified as Moncler. It works as both a vest and jacket at the same time. A strange, but clever design. Mary seems to love it very much. On a few pictures it is clear that she wore brand new over-the-knee boots. I actually managed to found them at Gianvito Rossi. Do you like them? Because of the length I think they look pretty edgy. At the arrival to Brøndby Stadium I got a glimpse of her wearing diamond earrings, possibly from Hartmann's, and her Tod's bag. Once again I'm impressed by her hair -all voluminous and gorgeous!

Inauguration of Bornholm's new visitor center

Wednesday, March 22nd

Despite a funeral on on Tuesday, here, of her coworker and friend Juliane Meulengracht Bang the Crown Princess was back a work as usual. Today, she attended the inauguration of a new visitor center at Hammershus on Bornholm. Hammershus is Northern Europe's largest castle ruin, which has been restored for the last couple of years. The traditional red ribbon has changed to a rather large metal chain instead. This clearly made the Crown Princess laugh. Overall she was in.a really good mood; all relaxed and comfortable. After the grand opening she was given a guided tour around the new center. During her visit she was accompanied by Minister of Environment and Food Esben Lunde Larsen.

The weather is pretty unstable at this time a year in Denmark, so I truly understand why Mary had chosen a warm coat and long boots. Any of your favourites as well? She showed up on Bornholm wearing her greenish coat from Burberry. It goes years back from around the time the twins were little. Last we saw her wear it at the Hubertus hunt on November 5th last year, here. Loved it then. Love it as much now. Unfortunately I can't share a link with you, other than to one of my favourite royal fashion blogs, here. She matched the greenish coat with a matching knitted turtleneck sweater and slim black trousers. I imagine it looks great without the coat as well. Then we have a pair of brand new boots. The lack of pictures makes it impossible for me to see any specific details to tell where they are from. At this point, I have no idea where to find them. She also embraced a chic and cosy look by wearing knitted brown gloves and sparkly diamond earrings, which could be from Hartmann's. Do I see anything else? -yes, her hair of course. This magnificent, curly hairstyle is simply stunning. Hope we get to see this a bit more often. That would make me really happy.

The funeral of Juliane Meulengracht Bang

Tuesday, March 20th

According to the Danish magazine Se & Hørhere, has a dear friend and coworker of the Crown Princess died only 54 years old of ovarian cancer. The funeral of Juliane Meulengracht Bang took place in Esajas church in Copenhagen Tuesday afternoon, where friends and family were gathered to say one last goodby. Juliane Meulengracht Bang was board member of and helped establish the Mary Foundation and has, therefor, worked along with the Crown Princess on multiple occasions. The Crown Princess was accompanied by her husband Crown Prince Frederik and her eldest son Prince Christian. Bringing a 12-year old boy to a funeral suggests that Juliane Meulengracht Bang was more than just a business partner to the Crown Prince couple. The Crown Princess had just visited Greve along with her mother-in-law to attend the 90th anniversary of Promotion of the Handwork, here.

My sincere condolences to friends and family, who lost a dear family member. May Mrs Bang rest in peace.

90 years with 'Promotion of the Handwork'

Tuesday, March 21st

The Queen and her daughter-in-law Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to Greve Museum in Greve to addend the 90th anniversary of Promotion of the Handwork. It goes back to 1928 with the the purpose to support Danish craftsmanship. Now, 90 years later, it still exists. The Queen has, on multiple occasions, worked for the Promotion of the Handwork becaused of her talent with among others embroidery and cross stitching. We don't get to see the two of them at work together but they make an excellent couple. Both of them seemed all relaxed and comfortable in each others company. Queen Margrethe gave a speech at the anniversary and revealed an embroidery and pattern for a Christmas calendar, similar to those she has made to all her grandchildren, here, here. The two royal guests were also given a tour around the exhibition called 'Colour Flora -Embroidery during 90 years'.

Mary showed up in a classy outfit at the anniversary. Way more monochrome in colour than her mother-in-law, who dazzled a tartan skirt and bright red jacket. Mary had chosen a black, knee-length  dress featuring a turtleneck. She embraced the chic style by wearing one of her good old coats. This piece goes way back and I am pretty sure it has been altered a bit during the years. I found a few examples for you from when she has worn the coat on other occasions, here, here, here, here. For a couple of years I have had the thought that Birgit Hallstein created this coat, but I can't tell for sure. Mary has another, similar, coat made by Hallstein, here. It could be. Chanel has also been mentioned on several occasions. Then she wore her Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings, her beloved black Carlend Copenhagen clutch and what I believe is pointed pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Yet another thing I noticed, is her lovely hairstyle. Always adored when she embrace curly hair. Makes her look youthful, fresh and polished. Do you ever fancy curly hair? If I had one wish to make a change about her outfit, then it would be just a single piece of colour. Nothing laud or dramatic. Maybe a berry lipgloss, a coloured ring or something like that. An overall modest but well-chosen look for a day in her mother-in-laws company.

Honorary dinner at Fredensborg

Sunday, March 11th

Each year on March 11th a dinner takes place with Queen Margrethe as hostess. The dinner is held alternatively for the Danish army-, navy- and air force at Fredensborg castle. This year 30 receivers of the badge of honor from the air force and armed force were invited along with the Crown Prince couple. The badge of honor was established in 1953 by Frederik IX on his birthday; on March 11. Which is why the dinner is held on his birthday each year. A badge of honor is given for 25 years good service.

The Queen as hostess was already at Fredensborg castle when the 30 participants arrived closely followed by the Crown Prince couple. We got a brief glimpse of the royal couple before rest of the honorary dinner took place behind closed doors.

I was so sure we weren't be seeing any pictures at all from this dinner. Suddenly, I received pictures from all of you showing the couple arriving. And it was just great. Both of them were beautifully dressed -Frederik was wearing a polished uniform and matching hat, while his wife dazzled in a blue evening gown. I asked for information about Frederik's uniform and it turns out that he was dressed in the navy's fair uniform, here. Mary's new gown has been identified by Heaven as a Lasse Spangenberg Copenhagen creation. In the video it shows the gown with an asymmetric lace top. Can't wait to get a closer look. At the arrival she stunned wearing a brand new cape. This was found by Kate at Julie Fagerholt Heartmade. She embraced the style with diamond earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry, a golden Cartier bracelet and a silver clutch from J. Furmani. I also managed to identify her pumps, though it was hard to find pictures. Toe, shape and colour makes me sure that she was wearing Gianvito Rossi pumps made of silk.
