Day 2. Official visit to Paris

24 June

The previous day, Crown Princess Mary arrived to Paris on an official visit announced not that long ago. Only little information have been published about the visit, but on the first day she opened an exhibition at Danmarkshuset. The exhibition was created by artist, Jesper Christensen who also made the new altarpiece in the Frederik's Church, here.

On Monday, she then payed a visit to the Museé Jacquemart-André in the French capital, where Crown Princess Mary saw the exhibition 'Hammershøi, the master of Danish painting'. The exhibition shows art-pieces by the Danish artist, Vilhelm Hammershøi. It is part of the Ministry of Culture's culture investment entitled 'Denmark-France 2018-2020'. The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood at the arrival. Parts of her visiting Museé Jacquemart-André, was also to give her a guided tour around the exhibition.

Later the Crown Princess was welcomed by First Lady Brigitte Macron, when arriving to Centre Pompidou - a house of culture and a famous construction named after a former French President, Georges Pompidou. The Danish Royal House shared that Crown Princess Mary and First Lady Brigitte Macron visited the exhibition 'Sonja Ferlov Mancoba' exhibited at Centre Pompidou.

On the second day, Crown Princess Mary also attended a healthcare conference in Danmarkshuset. Michael Starbæk Christensen, Danish Ambassador in France welcomed the Crown Princess when she arrived. She wasn't all alone attending the conference. More than a hundred representatives from both the Danish- and French healthcare system participated. The conference focuses on the transformation of the Danish healthcare system and how French healthcare system could learn from that. Especially digitalization was center of attention.

She ended her visit in Paris with a visit to the Palais de l'Élysée, which is the residence of the French Presidential Couple. The reason for her visit was that First Lady Brigitte Macron had invited her for lunch.

The Crown Princess was spotted, here, when still being in Paris. I am not exactly sure on what occasion it was taken, but my guess is before leaving Paris. 

I had mixed emotion about what she wore on the first day. The new pink floral dress was really girly, but beautiful. Her evening outfit was spot on. I was happy to see her second day look. Mary wore a brand new midi length dress featuring what's called a windowpane paid. Trying to identify where this new dress is from, I had Danish design in mind. I was right. From Heaven I learned that Mary's wonderful white dress is from Danish designer Morten Ussing. Possibly the first time we see her wear that designers creations. Do you like it? I do. Love the silhouette, wavy sleeves and v-shaped neckline.

She embraced the style with white pearl earrings that goes way back in time. Don't know exactly when she first wore them, but it has to be at least 10 years ago. Dulong Fine Jewelry created them, as four of her five worn bracelets. Love when she wears so many bracelets. Looks just great. I also see her golden Cartier bangle and a Dulong Fine Jewelry diamond ring. Seems like Mary loves to flash that stunning diamond ring lately. And it is indeed magnificent.

She also accessorized her outfit with a small blue belt, matching pointed pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a new clutch. Kate shared with me that is comes from 1602. Also a new designer for Mary to wear.
