Presentation of the Heart Association's Research Grants 2019

28 November

Crown Princess Mary was in a great mood when she arrived to Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen. She visited the hospital as patron of the Heart Association, as part of the presentation of the Heart Association- and Children's Heart Foundation's grants talking place later that same day. The Crown Princess was welcomed by, among others, the chairman of the Heart Association, Christian Hassager and the hospital director, Per Christiansen.

Later on she was introduced to studies that aim to improve and make adult heart surgery more gentle. Apparently that can be done by the use of oxygenation and organ protection during surgery. Crown Princess Mary was also given a demonstration on how surgeons are trained with help from a fake torso. She even tried it herself. I imagine it as both an interesting and informative visit.

After the visit at Rigshospitalet the Crown Princess drove to Hotel d'Angleterre where she was about to attend the presentation of the Heart Association- and Children's Heart Foundation's annual grants. A couple of so-called 'heart children' welcomed the Crown Princess. Heart Children are either born with a heart failure or are suffering from a cardiovascular disease. She also gave a speech before handing over the grants to Sofie Bay Simony, Lars Allan Larsen, Mina Nicole Händel, Anne Lagsted and Canan Doganli. Congratulations to all five recipients with the prestiges grants.

Usually Mary dresses up in skirts and dresses for this annual event. But not this time. This year she had chosen to wear a reused dotted blazer from Massimo Dutti matched with a pair of navy blue trousers. We first saw the blazer in 2015 and since then she has worn it just a couple of times. When visiting Rigshospitalet made it the fourth time. As on two other occasions Mary embraced the style of her blazer and matching trousers with a good old blouse from Prada. I always liked the buckle detail following the neckline. Makes it more than just a plain blue blouse, right?

The round Pomellato earrings and ring were a perfect color combination to the rest of her outfit. Especially the blouse and jewellery were very much the same color. I love when things match in color. It is always a good thing to remember if you not sure what to pair. Matching colors always do. 

Under her one sleeve one of her Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelets appeared. Another accessory that is mostly hidden, are the shoes. To me it looks like Mary was wearing her burgundy suede pumps, but it could also be her black and burgundy pumps from Prada. What do you see? Gianvito Rossi, here. Or Prada, here. She had also chosen to her reused her suede Hugo Boss clutch.

The 100th anniversary of the diplomatic relationsship between Denmark and Poland

25 November


Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary had traveled to Warsaw in Poland to attend the marking of the 100th anniversary of the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between Denmark and Poland.

The one-day visit takes place with royal attendance because the couple have personally been invited by H.E. President of Poland, Andrzej Duda. He and his wife warmly welcomed the Crown Prince Couple when they arrived to the presidential palace. Here they were officially welcomed and attended  lunch hosted by the Polish Presidential Couple.

Later on Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary accompanied the Presidential Couple at laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. The atmosphere were quiet and honoring. They also attended the opening of a historian conference at Uniwersytet Warszawski such as visiting the Centrum Weterana - a centre for veterans.

Meanwhile Crown Prince Frederik payed attention on other things, Crown Princess Mary attended the launch of "Cities Changing Diabetes" - a project Warsaw is now part of. She also participated a roundtable-meeting on the inclusion of people with disabilities.

After a long day in Warsaw in company of the Polish Presidential Couple, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were guests of honor at the concert and following reception at Palac Kultury in Nauki, Poland. The evening events were a perfect way to end the day and the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Denmark and Poland.

The couple was in a splendid mood when they arrived to Palac Kultury. They were about to watch a concert orchestrated by Czeslaw Mozil, a Danish-Polish musician also known as hosting the Polish X-Factor. It looks like a wonderful evening with lots of music, sining and smiles.

When arriving to Poland Mary was beautifully dressed in a chic winter outfit. Lovely colors and amazing prints. From what I have seen she is only wearing reused clothes and accessories. Finally we get to see her in that matching Strenesse coat and skirt. Love the 60s vibe with a suit-like outfit. Both coat and skirt are made of a wool-blend fabric that makes them perfect for this time a year - with or without thighs. She embraced the style by wearing her old printed blouse from Stine Goya. That blouse and that blue color are just a great combination. At one point she also wore one of her light brown shawls.

As jewellery Mary had chosen - once again - white pearls. I still have no ID on who created those incredible diamond and pearl earrings. But the stunning white pearl ring is a Dulong Fine Jewelry design such as with the bracelet. We also got a little glimpse of what I strongly believe is her golden Cartier bangle.

I am sure you also noticed how well her clutch, shoes and gloves matched in color, right? Personally I really like when ones accessory are the same color. Makes an outfit look more complete. Mary is master of getting the colors right. This time she chose her 1602 beige clutch and pointed python pumps from Gianvito Rossi, which we have seen quite a lot the last couple of months. Her outfit is not surprising at all, but she played save - and won!

Mary simply stunned in her new dark red velvet dress. Does that dress say "it is soon Christmas" or what? I cannot afford this beautiful dress, but it differently makes me wanna find a similar one. Mary's new creation has been found at Beulah London. I learned about her new dress from Heaven. Every time I look at it, I see new details. Just look at the neckline. The sleeves. The length and the buttons at front. Somehow I was sure she was going to wear something reused, but obviously I was wrong.

At first I thought she was wearing her burgundy velvet pumps, but a close look made me change my mind. These are her suede studded pumps from Gianvito Rossi. This is the fourth time Mary is flashing these pumps. We first saw them in 2018 when the French Presidentail Couple visited Copenhagen, here. Then a year later Mary wore these pumps once again with a black suit the the Cancer Society's Honorary Award 2019, here. And then again a couple of week later at a memorial concert for the lose of Prince Henrik, here.

She embraced the style with an old monogram clutch from Louis Vuitton. It it more than 10 years old. Since then we have seen the little black clutch at six different events. Most of them evening events. Also the diamond Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen earrings have been worn before and are custom-made. The ring on her right hand is also a reuse worn numerous times. It features a warm orange colored stone. At the INDEX Award in 2013 a good picture was taken showing the ring clearly, here.

The Health in the 21st Centre: Data, Policy, and Digital Technology conference

21st November

Crown Princess Mary arrived in a great spirit to Langelinje Pavillonen in Copenhagen where she was about to attend the OECD conference "Health in the 21st Centre: Data, Policy, and Digital Technology". Denmark hosted the conference. The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed by Magnus Heunicke (Minster of Health and Elderly) and Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen (Deputy Director General of OECD).

The conference is part of the Knowledge-Based Health Systems - a project by OECD that works on how contries around the world can leverage health data to create knowledge that can be used for policy development. Also to drive processes of change in the health care system.

Shortly after the arrival to Langelinje Pavillonen the Crown Princess entered the stage and gave speech that made everybody listen with great attention. She spoke about digitalization and how these innovative solutions are an asset in the healthcare system and when it comes to gender equality. The speech is available here.

So another suit. I have always loved a woman in good suit not matter what color or print. Mary has a quick a couple of suits. A red one. A creamy white one. A couple of black ones and then this. The striped suit worn at the OECD conference goes way back in time. Mary first wore this dark grey suit in 2004 when visiting London, here. That makes it around 15 years old. We have seen the two-piece once more in 2004, here and then again the following year, here. Eight years later she showed up wearing the unidentified suits once again in 2013 at the High-Level Meeting Global Inequity, here. For so many years, her suits has been without a designer. But one day it turned out to be from Dolce & Gabbana. 

She embraced the style with a simple black blouse and pointed ankle boots. The boots are from Hugo Boss and features a suede cap and matching heel. We were first introduced to the boots at the theatre premiere of Liva in 2017, here. They caught everyones attention once and for all when the couple visited Museum Jorn in Silkeborg a couple of days later, here. She also accessorized the outfit with diamond earrings and a Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen ring. Simple as that.

Royal hunt in Grib Skov

20th November

The royal hunt and following dinner at Fredenborg Castle has been a tradition for many years. This year Crown Prince Frederik hosted the event along with his mother, Queen Margrethe. Also Crown Princess Mary was attending in the afternoon when all animals where showed.

She and her husband, including her mother-in-law, were in a splendid mood. They greeted all who had participated the hunt. Everybody were talking and having a good time in the cold weather outside Fredensborg Castle.

Later in the evening Queen Margrethe hosted a banquet on occasion of the annual royal hunt in Grib Skov. According to the royal court, it has become a tradition to give a toast to all who had participated the hunt at the following banquet.

Kongehuset  Instagram  Daily Mail

It was all dark and cold on that November night when Queen Margrethe, her son Crown Prince Frederik and daughter-in-law Crown Princess Mary were gathered at Fredensborg Castle to celebrate the royal hunt in Grib Skov. Not much has been published or written about the event, which makes it a bit more difficult to identify what Mary was wearing.

Nevertheless. She had chosen to wear a pallet of darker colors. It looks like she was wearing an old dark brown suit from Strenesse. Mary was first spotted wearing this suit in 2005, but a year later was the first time at an official event - an officiel visit to Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, here. What actually looks like a blouse, is part of the jacket. The long black coat looks familiar, but at the moment I can't tell if or when we have seen it before. Can you help me?

Mary embraced the chic winter outfit with beautiful diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe. She has been really wearing these earrings a lot since the first time we saw them a couple of months back. The light brown leather gloves are also a reuse. I am not quite sure if the boots are new, but I think they are. A really lovely outfit for a cold evening outside. What is your style when it is getting colder and warmer clothes are needed?

The annual art competition

18th November

As patron of both the National Association for Mental Health (SIND) and the Psychiatry Fund Crown Princess Mary attended a very special event taking place at Copenhagen City Hall. More specifically, she attended the annual art competition arranged by Copenhagen Municipality.

The competition is for all employees working in the area of social psychiatry and people with a mental disorders and their relatives. With an event like this Copenhagen Municipality aim to give both citizens and their relatives the opportunity to become part of a community and of course make it a good experience for all participants.

Crown Princess Mary arrived in a great spirit. With a big smile on her face she took plenty of time listening, commenting, speaking and watching. She spoke with the participants and they gladly told her about their paintings and how it had being part of the competition. It was a wonderful sight to see when the participants and Crown Princess Mary met. All lit up at the sight of her and vice versa.

Attending the competition at Copenhagen City Hall Mary was dressed in a warm and cozy outfits. Personally I get why she was wearing a knitted sweater and long trousers. The weather is getting colder every day. I learned that Elena has been able to identify Mary's new knitted sweater as a Victoria Beckham design, here. If she is going to wear this piece as much as her other Victoria Beckham blouse then this is differently a sweater we will see again - more than one time. She embraced the style by wearing a brand new sleeveless blouse as well. It features an embellished collar and a blueish floral print. Kate managed to find her new blouse at Miu Miu. Great finds both of you.

She had chosen to accessorized her outfit with just a few things. To me it looks like she was wearing her old pink argyle and diamond studs from Hartmann's. When she first started wearing these stunning earrings, she wore them very often. But until now, we haven't seen them that much. I would really like to have them as part of my own jewellery collection - or something similar, but somehow I am not good with the design. The floor-length trousers almost covered the black pointed ankle boots from Gianvito Rossi.

Day 2. Nairobi Summit on ICPD25: Accelerating the Promise

13 November

Crown Princess Mary was participating Nairobi Summit on ICPD25: Accelerating the Promise in Nairobi, Kenya on November 12th. The following day she was also attending several panel debates and met with a very special lady.

First thing in the morning she attended "Investing in Education to Invest in A Better Future" - a panel debate hosted by the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) about gender and education. The debate it took place at Hotel Villa Rosa Kempinski Nairobi. A few hours later the Crown Princess attended another panel debate called "Women Leaders High Level Dialogue". A debate with participation of female leaders.

I also talked about her meeting with a very special lady. That lady was no other than Margaret Kenyatta, Kenya's First Lady. She had also attended the debate "Women Leaders High Level Dialogue" prior to meeting the Danish Crown Princess. Finally the Crown Princess participated the session "Fulfilling the Cairo Promise in a Fragile World". The Royal Court writes that the session was all about the fulfillment of the Cairo Action Plan, the maintenance of women's sexual and reproductive health and rights, and the fight against gender-based violence.

Attending the second day of Nairobi Summit Mary was dressed in her reused Massimo Dutti linen suit. A classy suit that works with perfection every single time she wears it. This time she had chosen to styled her beige suit with her white Hugo Boss button-down blouse. I would like to have seen just a little more colors, but Mary still looks beautiful in a more neutral color palette. A suit is indeed a classic piece of clothes, but can also be a symbol of how far women have come. About 60-70 years ago it was more or less impossible for women to wear a suit. That is not the thing anymore.

White pearl jewellery were way more normal and considered for women to wear back in the old days. Now Mary shows how they have not gone out of style. She both wore white pearl earrings and a matching bracelet created by Dulong Fine Jewelry. The stylish leather handbag is her beloved pieces from Prada and the incredible python pumps are from Gianvito Rossi.

She changed her hairstyle during the day from a simple blow-out to another simple ponytail. I like the last one best. It makes her a bit more polished.

Day 1. Nairobi Summit on ICPD25: Accelerating the Promise

12 November


Crown Princess Mary is participating the Nairobi Summit on ICPF25: Accelerating the Promise from November 12-13th, among others, as patron of the United Nations Population Fund. Minister of Development, Rasmus Prehn is also participating the summit along with the Crown Princess. 

Nairobi Summit on ICPF25 takes place on occasion of the 25th anniversary of 179 countries' adoption of an action plan to the benefit of girls and women's rights over one's own body. The summit is hosted by Kenya, Denmark and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and takes place in Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi.

Already on the summits first day Crown Princess Mary entered the stage and gave a speech on occasion of the opening, here. As part of the opening ceremony she attended the paneldebat "Rights and Choices for All" with all participants of the summit. So both older and younger representatives were members of the panel. They represent philanthropy, civil society and the private sector. She also participated the session "Meet the Leader" - a dialogue between leaders from the ICPD and younger participants. Crown Princess Mary did also participate in Beijing+25 and the signatur session entitled "Ending Unmet Need for Family Planning: Reproductive Rights and Contraceptive Choices".

It was not all about debats, meetings and sessions. Youssou N'Dour entertained the summits participants with sining.


In the evening, after a long day with lots of meetings and panel debates, Crown Princess Mary was invited to dinner. It was hosted by Kenya's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Monica Juma. There are not much to tell about the dinner. Well, I have not been able to read much about the dinner. At all. What I see from the pictures is that Crown Princess Mary was seated next to, among others, the Vice President from Costa Rica.

Her first day in Nairobi, Mary was beautifully dressed in one of her printed Michael Kors dresses. It features longer sleeves, a v-neck and a length that are covering her knees. A very suitable and stunning dress for the occasion. She first wore the printed beauty at the presentation of FSR: Denmark's best CSR in 2018, here. It took quite a while to identify where it was from, but in the end it was then found at Michael Kors. The suede burgundy belt was a perfect match and it emphasized her slim silhouette.

As other accessories Mary had chosen neutral colored pointed python pumps from Gianvito Rossi and matched it with a reused Prada handbag. Both pieces have been part of her wardrobe for quite a few years now. Still I love when she wears them. Especially the Gianvito Rossi pumps are favorites of mine. In general I really like his design.

The little brooch on the left side of her chest looks to me like the logo of the ICPD, here. So, I guess Mary wore their brooch because they are part of (among others) the Beijing+25. That show commitment, right? The longer beaded necklace and different colored stone bracelets are both Dulong Fine Jewelry's designs. She also wore a second necklace from Nadia Shelbaya. Mary loves to shine like a diamond wearing diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe and her golden Cartier bangle.

As I said, not much have been published from the dinner she attended in the evening. Nevertheless, it does not take many pictures to make a comment on what she was wearing. Mary dazzled at the dinner. At least that is what I think. She was wearing a 3/4 sleeve blouse. A rather simple black blouse. She paired it was a brand new printed skirt featuring ginkgo leaves. I was not able to identify her new skirt myself, but with a little help I can now tell that it is from Jesper Høvring's H by Jesper Høvring autumn collection.

To me the necklace also looks new. A simple look like this can also be accessorized with heavier jewellery - like this new necklace of hers. The golden round earrings are old ones from Dulong Fine Jewelry and the golden bracelet is Cartier. Somehow the little clutch is similar to this one from Naledi Copenhagen, here, but I can't tell for sure because of the low quality pictures. I could be wrong. The stunning yellow pumps are from Gianvito Rossi.

Rødding Højskole's 175th anniversary

07 November

Crown Princess Mary arrived in a splendid mood and was warmly welcomed in Rødding where she was about to attend the 175th birthday anniversary of Rødding Højskole. This makes it one of the oldest folk high school in Denmark. Mads Rykind-Eriksen, the Principal of Rødding Højskole welcomed her with smiles and a friendly handshake. He was also the one showing her around the school.

Rødding Collage has always, and still is, all about education and formation which is based on Grundtvig's thoughts on life and public education. Nicolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig was, among other things, a Danish author, theologian, philosopher and pastor.

The anniversary was also celebrated with lots of speeches hel by Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen, Chairwoman of the Association of the Folk High Schools in Denmark and Principal, Mads Rykind-Eriksen and some of the students also entered the stage and shared a few words on occasion of the birthday celebration. The Crown Princess was also meeting with some of the students, who proudly showed her their current projects that they were working on.

She was one big smile while attending the birthday celebration of Rødding Højskole in Rødding. Mary had chosen the most wonderful and stylish outfit. The skirt was first worn earlier this year at a, more or less, private event - the opening of Prince Nikolaos of Greece's exhibition Celestial Choreography exhibited in Rundetårn in Copenhagen, here. At that time no one knew a thing about the woolen midi skirt, but we all loved it. Now Elena managed to identify the skirt. It comes from a brand called Giuliva Heritage Collection. The skirt is really an amazing match with the skirt. It is a Oscar de la Renta design as I assumed.

Mary embraced the chic outfit by wearing a reused knitted blouse from CO. It features the mode incredible details. Especially the neck and sleeves have made me want something like this too. One day I hope we will see her wear this blouse with a pair of wide-legged trousers. She also accessorized the looks with stunning white pearl jewellery - earrings and a bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelry. That same designer created two of there other bracelets and that stunning diamond ring.

She was also wearing two other bracelets. The massive golden bangle is her love bracelet from Cartier and the second one is a delicate pieces featuring diamonds from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. To match the rest of her outfit Mary wore a beige ostrich clutch from Naledi Copenhagen and python pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Both pieces of accessory have been worn on several previous occasions. The rather large beaded brooch is still unidentified.

Presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2019

05 November

The Crown Princess had already visited Høng Boarding School, here, but in the evening she was on the road again. For at least five years Crown Princess has attended the presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize. This year the award show took place at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen.

The Honorary Award was first handed over in 2012 by the Magasin du Nord Fondation and has become one of the most important in fashion awards given in Denmark. With the award the foundations aim to find and promote future Danish fashion designers especially with focus on how sustainable each nominee are in their production.

Before handing over the prize all nominees posed for a picture along with the Crown Princess. But the overall winner of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2019 was Carcel, here. A brand that hires imprisoned women in both Thailand and Peru. These women are employed to produce the Carcel clothing. Carcel's mentality is that this initiative will secure fair wages and help the women to learn new skills and by that break with poverty.

Veronica D'Souza received the prize as one of the founders of Carcel. With the prize also follows a mentor program where members of the jury are there to help strengthen the brand. This is a new initiative that follows the winners. All the best wishes and congratulations to Carcel with the prestiges prize.

Usually Mary is a bit more dramatic dressed when attending presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize. But this year she had chosen to keep ti simple. She was dressed in her reused white Britt Sisseck blouse matched with black fitted trousers and an old embroidered YDE Copenhagen coat. Though it is not the most overwhelming and surprising outfits, it works just great. Especially I like the shortened sleeves on the coat that makes the sleeves from the blouse visible. Love how the two materials are a contrast.

Once before we have seen this combo. It was when Mary attended the opening of the Cultural Year 2019 between South Korea and Denmark in January, here. She first wore  the blouse with the beautiful coat in 2017 at Copenhagen Fashion Week, here.

She accessorized the look by wearing incredible green leather Valentino Pumps studded with rivets. Classy Valentino pumps in a vivid color. That is what makes Mary one of the most stylish women in the world in my opinion - she wears everything classy with a twist. The earrings are the same a worn earlier that day. Winter frost earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

Visiting Høng Efterskole

05 November

It was with a great smile on her face when Crown Princess Mary arrived to Høng Efterskole. She payed a visit to the boarding school along with the Mary Foundation. Also health and wellness expert, Chris MacDonald accompanied her. The visit was all about a launching a brand new project focusing on strengthen young people's social skills that should help more young people to combat failure to thrive.

The project is made in collaboration between both the Mary Foundation, Chris MacDonald's non-profit organization, the Tuborg Foundation and The Boarding School Foundation. So right now three boarding school works with the new project. In other words, they are testing the project to find what's good about it and what maybe needs to change. Testing the project includes for the young people to do a series of different exercises about both friendship, understanding oneself and others, etc.

Initially Crown Princess Mary gave a speech talking about how important it is that we all contribute for everybody to feel better socially. For instance she also mentioned that we are all able to find something that connects us no matter how we feel or how we look. Equivalent as always. This is among other things what the Mary Foundation wrote about her visit in their post on Facebook - found below.

Surprisingly Mary was not wearing a coat when she arrived. I do not know why this was, mainly, the first thing I noticed about this visit. Maybe because I can not leave the house for just a few minutes without wearing my coat, gloves, scarf and knitted hat. Yes, I quickly get cold. Nevertheless, Mary looked really stylish when visiting Høng Efterskole.

She was dressed in black fitted trousers, a new grey knitted sleeveless blouse with a white button-down underneath. Only the white sleeves were visible under the grey blouse, so I do not recognize which one of her button-down's it is. Nor do I know a thing about the new knitted turtleneck blouse. Do you? And do you like it? In a way I like that she did now cover up the blouse with a blazer, but instead wore a blouse under.

As jewellery Mary had chosen to diamond earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. A creation from one of my favourite collections from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. She also wore three different bracelets from talented Dulong Fine Jewelry. With what I have seen, I get that she was also wearing two rings but at the moment I can not say where they are from. I need some better pictures to show. Her fourth bracelet is her beloved golden bracelet from Cartier. The black pointed ankle boots are from Gianvito Rossi.

Hubertus Hunt in Dyrehaven 2019

03 November

For quiet some years now the Crown Princess and her children have attended the annual Hubertus Hunt in Dyrehaven surrounding the small hunting castle - the Eremitage Castle. This year she watched the hunt with her two children, Prince Christian and Princess Josephine. The three of them had, what looks like, a splendid day in the Danish autumn weather. They enjoyed the hunt from the balcony at the Eremitage Castle which gave them a great view of all the horses, riders and people who had come to Durehaven to follow the ride.

The Hubertus Hunt has, with only a few exceptions, been an annual event since 1900. Originally, dogs were suppose to hunt down foxes. Today the foxes are no longer hunted down by dogs and their riders. Instead two riders acts as foxes. On the hunt, the riders have to cope with more than 30 challenges throughout the 11 kilometers hunt.

This year Crown Princess handed over, for the first time, Crown Princess Mary's Prize of Honor. The Prize were given to the farstest riders on pony, Caroline Nielsen, and horse, Signe Kongebro. Prince Christian and Princess Josephine helped their mother handing over the two prizes. Originally the prize "belonged" to Queen Ingrid, then Prince Henrik handed over the prize in his own name and now Crown Princess Mary is the one to present the prize at the annual event in Dyrehaven.

Crown Princess Mary shared her own photos from the Hubertus Hunt with the children in focus, here.

What I like so much about Mary's style, is the fact that she is able to adjust both colors and fabrics to the time a year and occasion. This has become one of my favourite events because it takes place during autumn (which is my favorite time a year) and usually Mary is wearing my favourite fabrics and colors. She embraced the style by wearing a lovely jacket featuring two large pockets and shiny golden buttons. The significant design had been found at Marc Jacobs. Nevertheless, it has not yet been found in the right color. Kate shared with me the model in a lovely navy blue color. Let me know if you manage to find this jacket in a darker green colors as Mary's. Then one of you made me aware that Mary had actually worn the jacket before back in 2015 at a private event at Broholm Castle, here. Actually I am surprised that I did ont recognize it, because this was one of my favorite outfits at the time.

She matched the new jacket with a magnificent green knitted turtleneck. I have never been able to identify where it is from, but I know that she had worn it several times before. Among others then they all visited Greenland in 2014, here and when she visited Bornholm in 2018, here. Her trousers is also reused. Do you remember that she wore them while interview on occasion of her 40th birthday in the newspaper Berlingske in 2012, here? I once heard Miu Miu mentioned, but I have not been able to confirm that.

With fur cuffs, brown leather boots and her stunning Ralph Lauren quality leather handbag Mary accessorized one of the greatest outfit I think we have seen lately. Wish I was able to rock this outfit with such perfection as Mary did.

Presentation of the Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2019

02 November


In the evening the Crown Prince Couple were participating the Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2019 in Odense. This is also the occasion why Crown Prince Frederik and his wife, Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to the Art Museum Brandts in the afternoon. Brandts is one of Denmarks first museum's combining art, visual culture and present both new and classic art.

The couple were warmly welcomed with handshakes, smiles and the Crown Princess was of course given a beautiful bouquet of flowers at the arrival. Chairman of the Board of Art Museum Brandts, Bolette Christensen was one of the people who took part in the guided tour given to the Crown Prince Couple while visiting the museum.

It was with great interest that both of them listened, watched and asked questions about the exhibitions. The royal couple got the opportunity to watch an exhibition by Danish artist, Adam Jeppesen. He is, at the moment, exhibiting the exhibition 'The Great Filter". They also admired a brand new exhibition about the island of Funen. After visiting Brandts, the Crown Prince Couple drove to Odeon, where the show was taking place, to participate in the rehearsal, here.

Time is up! Around 9 pm local time the Crown Prince and Crown Princess arrived in a great spirit to Odeon in Odense where the show was taking place. The show we have all been waiting for since last year. Of course I am talking about The Crown Prince Couple's Prizes 2019.

The show goes back to the time when the couple got married in 2004. It was a gift from the Bikuben Foundation to the couple. The show and its prizes are all about highlight extraordinary achievement in cultural and social work in Danish, Greenlandic and the Faroe Islands. This is why Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary gather people every year - now for 15 years.

From first raw and alternating on stage did the couple participate their own show for around 1,5 hour. It was all broadcasted live on Danish television. If you would like to watch last nights great show, then it can be found right here. Four prizes were presented and handed over by the Crown Prince couple. Here is who won: The Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize was given to Bydelsmødre, meanwhile The Crown Prince Couple's Cultural Prize went to Elsa Dreisig, opera singer. The two Crown Prince Couples Stardust Prizes were given to songwriter and singer, Jada and FRAK - a social economy business. Read more about the winner, here. Congratulation to all the winners!

Visiting the Art Museum Brandts in Odense Mary was beautifully dressed in a lovely color combination of powder pink and light grey. What a stunning outfit. She had chosen to wear all reused clothes. The grey fitted trousers is still unidentified and I have no clue where to find them. So let me know if you have the information about them that I need to track them down.

The powder pink turtleneck blouse is a reuse from ZARA. This is the first time she wears it in public. Mary matched this wonderful blouse with a double-breasted Prada jacket. Also a reuse that goes some years back. Unfortunately, I have never been able to find the exact same model as she is wearing.

She accessorized the chic and feminine outfit by wearing old diamond earrings shaped as flowers. They are from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, such as the delicate diamond band wrapping around her finger. Last but not least Mary wore light grey suede pointed pumps from Gianvito Rossi. There is no doubt in my mind that I going to try this outfit myself.

I was truly impressed by what Mary wore earlier in the afternoon visiting the art museum in Odense, but her evening wear impressed me even more. She was dressed in a new magnificent creation by Søren Le Schmidt. He confirmed to a good friend of mine that it is a custom-made dress. Just look how the skirt all dramatically makes an entrance. And how her one shoulder and arm is covered by a thin layer of fabric. I can not wait to see this dress again. I imagine it worn with many of her accessories.

This time she had chosen to embrace the style with several golden bracelets. Heaven recognized one of them as being a Rebekka Notkin design. Kate found that her new golden and diamond ring is also a Rebekka Notkin creation. Personally I believe that the larger golden bangle is also a Notkin design as we already know that her shell earrings are. Love how she manages to wear so many jewellery and make it look so simple and casual. And she wore more jewellery. A Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelet and one from Cartier.

She matched all the golden jewellery with pointed golden glitter pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a reused sequin clutch from Prada. From what I hear you also like her outfit at the award show, am I right?

Presentation of the FSR: Denmark's best CSR 2019

31 October

More than once the Crown Princess has attended this annual event. Also last year she attended the presentation of the FSR - Denmark's Best CSR, here. Think it is the fifth or sixth time Crown Princess Mary is attending the award show and presenting the awards.

Each year the organization, FSR (Danish auditors) hand over awards to companies that have managed to make a company that takes the most responsibility. That is why the award is given to companies who made an effort to work to become a more social responsible company.

This is what Crown Princess Mary is supporting by attending the award show at Børsen in Copenhagen each year. From stage she handed over two awards. As a 'large listed company' did A.P. Møller Mærsk receive the title as Denmark's Best CSR-report. Meanwhile Grundfos was given the award as 'large non-listed company'. Executive Vice President, Morten Engelstoft represented A.P. Møller Mærsk and Poul Due Jensen represented Grundfos. Both of them received the awards on stage and the moment were then captured with Crown Princess Mary. Congratulations to both companies with the prestiges award!

Fall has once and for all arrived to Denmark, Copenhagen as well. Personally I am all covered up in knitted hats, scarves, gloves and wool-blend coats. Mary on the other hand had chosen no coat, no warm accessories and no thighs - at least not warm ones. I do not get how she manages to keep comfortable in this little clothes. Nevertheless, I like everything about her outfit from the day she attended the presentation of the FSR - Denmark's best CSR 2019 at Børsen. She looked great in her old black MaxMara jacket which she had belted with a piece from Céline. The belt also goes years back in time, but the lovely dusty pink (or maybe lilic) pleated skirt is brand new. I have not been able to identify her new skirt yet, so let me know if you find out anything interesting about this stunning pieces of clothes. Pleated skirts can be hard to wear, but they always look so beautiful when in motion.

Mary accessorized her outfit with eye-catching python pumps. She had quite a couple of snakeskin and python pumps and these have been part of her wardrobe since around 2017. About now, Mary has worn these shoes with both a navy blue dress, here, a suits, here, a powder pink midi skirt, here, and with rose colored trousers, here. She can now add having worn the python pumps with yet another power pink skirt.

As jewellery, Mary dazzled wearing diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe and a diamond band. That simple golden ring is created by Dulong Fine Jewelry. The quality leather clutch from Quidam perfectly matched the jacket MaxMara jacket. I also noticed her hair at the presentation at Børsen. It looks like a million other times, but somehow I can not get my eyes off her hair. I wish I knew how to make such a perfect blow-out. I have not learned it yet and it will probably take a few more years.
