Inauguration of the new panda plant

10 April

In 2014 Queen Margrethe received a very special and unique gift from China's President - two pandas. They have now arrived to Denmark in their new resident in the Zoo in Copenhagen. Queen Margrethe participated the inauguration of the new panda plant accompanied by her daughter-in-law, Crown Princess Mary.

Both of them arrived to the Zoo in a splendid mood. They were welcomed with flowers, handshakes and smiles. The Queen officially opened the panda plant by cutting the traditional red ribbon. She got a large smile on her face when the bow almost flew off by itself. It was great amusement for all of them.

Later on the two royal women were given a guided tour around in the panda plant by, among others, architect Bjarke Ingels, who designed the facility. The Crown Princess also made a few pictures herself - maybe to show her children

April weather in Denmark is a mix of rain, sun, wind and snow. One day it's sunny. The next day it's rainy. On Wednesday evening it was cold and cloudy. Both Queen Margrethe and Mary were dressed up wearing warm coats and gloves. I truly understand why. The Queen wore a beautiful white wool-blend coat, a bright red jacket underneath and black accessories.

Mary embraced the style at the inauguration by wearing her blue Strenesse coat. The coat was first seen on an official visit to Latvia in December last year, here. It comes with a matching skirt which was also worn in Latvia. This time she had chosen a black dress. Heaven managed to identify her brand new dress as Oscar de la Renta. It features a lovely white pearl neckline. Did you see that?

She accessories the look with old diamond and white pearl earrings. She has worn them a couple of times before, but I have not yet found out where they are from. The black suede Jimmy Choo pumps, leather gloves and Quidam clutch perfectly matched her outfit. The pumps was first worn on a business and cultural promotion visit in Texas back in March, here. What an edgy and chic outfit!
