Day 3. Work visit in Indonesia

04 December


This is the last day of her work visit in Indonesia. She has been accompanied by Minister of Development, Rasmus Prehn and Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Natalia Kanem all along.

The last couple the three of them have visited, met and talked to people who are working to improve girls and women's sexual and reproductive health and rights in Indonesia.

First thing early Wednesday morning Crown Princess Mary visited the Borobudur Temple. Her visiting the temple was not part of the official program. Borobudur Temple is a Buddhist monastery associated with the Mahayana tradition. It is one of the biggest Buddhist monuments in the world. What an incredible place. I get why the Crown Princess was all overwhelmed of what surrounded her. Also Minister of Development, Rasmus Prehn seemed to enjoyed the old building's rising to be the Borobudur Temple.

Later in the morning Crown Princess visited the healthcare center Puskesmas Tegalrejo. She was accompanied by Natalia Kanem (the Executive Director of UNFPA). These healthcare centers are part of the general improvement trying to offer better healthcare solutions for more people all around Indonesia. During their visit the Crown Princess took time to talk with girls and women at the healthcare center about sexual and reproductive health and rights.

After having visited Puskesmas Tegalrejo she was invited for lunch at the Sultan's palace hosted by the Sultan Hamengkubuwono X himself. The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed by the Sultan and his wife when she arrived. All three of them were in a great spirit, which is also why I believe it must have been a pleasant lunch.

All day she was all ears and eyes. Especially when attending a dialogue about family planning and the involvement of men. Crown Princess Mary attended this dialogue with Rasmus Prehn. On the other side of the dialogue were religious leaders. It was discussed who these leaders can use their importance to advise and improve knowledge for fathers to be. I imagine it being an interesting meeting for both the Crown Princess in her work and for Rasmus Prehn in his work as Minister of Development. The dialogue was the last thing on her agenda before leaving Indonesia.


Spending the morning at the Borobudur Temple in Java Mary was dressed in a comfortable outfit. She stunned wearing a brand new embroidered maxi skirt. Her new skirt has been identified as Zimmermann. I learned about it from Kate who managed to find it. Matched with a simple white button-down shirt Mary looked very casual. With all her similar white shirts this is still unidentified. Somehow I think this outfit is more than perfect for the occasion and place she was visiting. The atmosphere surrounding her; her mood and that outfit were getting along perfectly.

Mary has an amazing style for more than one reason. One of them is her way of wearing jewelry. When I wear the same amount of jewelry as her, I often feel overdressed. Do you know that feeling? But Mary never looked overdressed on jewelry. They compliment the rest of her look with such perfection. Wednesday morning she had chosen to wear golden jewelry from both Danish and international designers.

The golden earrings and the matching bracelet are created by Dulong Fine Jewelry. So is the bracelet shaped as a leaf. Take a closer look at all three bracelets, also the one from Cartier. I got a closer look and noticed that she was also wearing two golden diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Love the simplicity of each piece as with the Nadia Shelbaya necklace. The orange sunglasses are still a big mystery. No one has been able to identify where they are from. Do you have the answer?

The beige Chloé ballet flats have been seen before on several similar occasions as in Indonesia. To me it is so unreal that she is wearing ballet flats this time a year, because in Denmark we have to cover every inch of our body with warm clothes.

At her private visit to the Borobudur Temple Mary was dressed casual in a white button-down and a new embroidered Zimmermann skirt. When she was on official duty she changed to a brand new blue printed dress featuring a white collar and hemlines. The print is small flowers, but it is not easy to see on a distance. Look closer and you will see. A very cute print. The dress is not a new favorite of mine, but she looks comfortable wearing it. A Royal Fashion Blog, here, I learned that Beulah London created her new dress.

Most of the jewelry were the same as earlier in the morning. Both earrings and bracelets were the same. She added another Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen diamond bracelet to the outfit to match the two diamond rings. The reason why these pieces look similar are because they are from the very same collection called Love Bands. Such beautiful pieces.

Wearing the Beulah London dress she changed her shoes twice. I am not quite sure which pair she wore first, but Mary both wore her beige Chloé ballet flats (as earlier) and the stunning Gianvito Rossi beige python pumps. I love when she wears colorful clothes and simpler shoes in neutral colors and vice versa.

  1. A wonderful visit. The CP has a wonderful work ethic. She looked lovely in white crisp blouse and skirt. Perfect choice in jewellery, always subtle, not over the top, just right.

    1. It was indeed a wonderful visit. In every single way possible and the Crown Princess looked both relaxed and comfortable visiting Indonesia, but practice makes one perfect - right? ;)
