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.

  1. Love this ensemble CP Mary wore. The blue buckle blouse is divine, the colour is so pretty, and the buckle adds interest, no ordinary blouse. Jacket and pants are a perfect combination. Absolutely love the addition of the burgundy pumps, excellent choice.

    1. I get that I am not the only one who really adore what the Crown Princess was wearing last Thursday ;) The colors are a wonderful combo no doubt about that.
