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.
