Day 1. Official visit to the Faroe Islands

August, Thursday 23rd

Now it is time for what we all have been waiting for for a really long time. Think it was a couple of months ago that the news about the Crown Prince couple and children were going on an official visit to the Faroe Island was announced. Little is better than an official visit.

Than on Thursday 23rd the royal couple and their children arrived to Tórshavn on board Dannebrog. While visiting the islands they are also staying at the royal yacht. At the arrival all six royals were warmly welcomed by the Prime Minister, Aksel V. Johannesen who also gave a speech on this very special occasion. Hundreds of people had also arrived to the harbor getting a glimpse of the royals. Greetings were exchanged countlessly in Tórshavn.

During their first day on the Faroe Islands the program was packed from arrival to late evening. Among other things the Crown Prince family visited Government buildings in Tinganes were the official welcoming took place. Along with his father Prince Christians visited the educational institution Glasir. Meanwhile the Crown Princess visited the daycare Býlingshúsið undir Fjalli. In the afternoon Prince Christian joined his parents visiting Lagtinget. Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine were all seen at the arrival in a happy spirit.

Many pictures and videos have been published of the family. The Danish royal house has also shared pictures of them, here.

Usually we get to see Mary wear the most incredible and outstanding outfits while she's on official visits. So is her handsome husband. This time things are a bit different because the couple and their four children arrived wearing each their national costume from the Faroe Islands. Each costume has its own story:

The Crown Prince received his red, blue and green costume as a gift from Faroe Islands Governance and Lagting back in the days. Crown Princess Mary received hers back in 2005 at her first official visit to the islands, here. Its silver pieces are specially designed to the Crown Princess. On occasion of the children also visiting the Faroe Islands; each child were given their very own national costume. Prince Christian's suit is a gift from Tórshavn municipality, while Princess Isabella's costume is from Sunda municipality. The national costume worn by Prince Vincent is a gift from Runavik municipality and Princess Josephine's is from Klaksík municipality. All the costumes goes with a longer story which can be found, here.

Mary embraced the style of her national costume by wearing stunning Hartmann's earrings, a Dulong Fine Jewelry- and Cartier bracelet and diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Her hair was beautifully created in an updo seldom seen lately.

- Dinner -
It had already been a long day when the Crown Prince couple arrived to Nordens Hus for dinner - and dancing. The dinner was hosted by Prime Minister, Aksel V. Johannesen. Earlier in the morning he was the one welcoming the couple with an exquisite speech. Along with his wife Mrs Katrin D. Apol, he welcomed the royal couple arriving to Nordens Hus. From everything I see both Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were in a splendid mood beginning of the evening.

Pictures from the dinner show an entertained Crown Prince couple. During the dinner Crown Prince Frederik also gave a remarkable speech which seemed to make his wife very proud. A dinner was not the only thing the couple attended that night. They also participated a dance - hand in hand with everybody else. Sining and dancing was a joyful part of the program. A video has been posted down below. Everything seems so relaxed, right?

Not much had changed from since the arrival in Tórshavn earlier in the morning. Still it is worth commenting. At the dinner Mary had her hair down and only in a half-updo. This she had embraced with two silver pieces which I think we have seen at a couple of previously occasions. She has similar ones in golden as well. She then wore large floral diamond earrings which was also worn when attending 'the Who Award' in 2017, here. At the time they were identified as being purchased on auction at Bruun Ramussen.

Actually she had just created an entirely new outfit with different accessories. That also goes with the shoes she had chosen to wear. Heaven and her sharp eyes noticed a new pair of ankle strap pumps. She managed to identify them as Chloé. I am sure they are both comfortable to wear all evening and to dance in. Heaven also shared her thoughts with me about a new clutch. Unfortunately I have not been able to verify this idea. Although I think she could be right from what I have seen so far. To all photographers and medias; please share a few more close-ups with us. That would be great. Think many of us would also like to see details from the national costumes. That is simply not possible with what we have got so far.

  1. A wonderful family visiting the beautiful Faroer Islands. Thanks for the article.
    I believe in the evening she has worn her Bruun Rasmussen earrings she has also worn the 23rd february 2017.

    1. Thank you very much for helping me out with the earrings. I was so sure we had seen them before but couldn't remember where or when. That is how it goes when she has so many different pair of diamond earrings that all look a bit similar ;)
