The Australian War Memorial

17th September

As guest of honor, the Crown Princess attended the inauguration of "The Australian War Memorial" in the Churchillpark in Copenhagen. Crown Princess Mary was warmly welcomed by Australia's ambassador, Mary Ellen Miller whom which she also revealed the new war memorial and the Danish Minster of Defense, Trine Bramsen.

The atmosphere was very unique. Truly a day reserved for honoring Australian military and service staff, who took part in the liberation of Denmark during World War II as well as the fallen Australian soldiers from World War I. Standing side by side with the Australian ambassador, the Crown Princess showed her honor and support to those lost in war and for their families.

I guess it was with a special proud feeling in her heart that she attended the inauguration. After all, she is Australian born.

After the inauguration, she payed a visit to the Information Center for the Monument to Denmark's international efforts after 1948. The center is located at Kastellet in Copenhagen and offer visitors an insight into the missions that Danish envoys have participated in since 1948, here.

A couple of days ago we learned that the Crown Princess is now part of the United Nations Population Fund's newly established ICPD25 High Level Commission. This commission is all about fulfilling what was discussed at Nairobi Summit in 2019. These goals focuses on making any pregnancy desired, making every birth safe and to give all young people the opportunity to reach their full potential. On Thursday, she participated the very first (virtual) meeting with the commission (second embedded picture). She commented in her own words that she very much look forward to get started.

Mary was beautifully dressed, when she attended the inauguration and later on participated in a meeting with the newly established ICPD25 High Level Commission. Somehow, I think she looks different this time even though all of her clothes have been worn before. She looks older and somehow more mature (if that is even possible). 

I really like how she style her floral printed Ralph Lauren dress with that black Max Mara jacket. Did you know that Mary first wore this jacket back in 2004 at Queen Margrethe's 64th birthday, here? That is how old it is. At the inauguration she paired her old goodie with a stunning Ralph Lauren dress. Think it is the first time she wears the dress with a jacket and this time a year. Lovely dress. The thin belt is also a reuse from Céline.

She embraced the outfit with golden jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry and Cartier. The wonderful golden ring featuring diamonds, is an Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen design. For sure you also noticed the white pearl earrings and the little brooch. The story goes that the brooch is made by Dulong Fine Jewelry, but I have never been able to confirm it and the style is like their usual design.

As other accessories she wore nude pointed pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a matching (unidentified) clutch. With gloves and a hairstyle do die for, Mary impressed me greatly.

  1. Very nice look for CPss Mary today.

  2. I think Mary looks lovely at this event. Her outfit really suits the occasion. It's great to see her commemorating the Aussie Diggers.

    1. Seems like I am not the only one, who really like her latest outfit. She is indeed beautifully dressed :)

  3. Mary looks wonderfully professional and yet still feminine. I think the thin, gold belt finishes off the outfit superbly.

    1. You are right. The belt really does the thing for this outfit-
