It was truly a day many of us had been waiting for, when Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik arrived to Koldinghus in Kolding to attend the official opening of "Mary og Kronprinsesserne". A brand new exhibition about her life and the former Crown Princesses of Denmark. The exhibition takes place on occasion of her 50th birthday.
I had the pleasure to witness their arrival myself. Over ten years ago, I saw the couple for the first time. My second time was just as wonderful. The couple is indeed lovely!
As part of the official opening, Cabinet Secretary and Director of the Royal Collection Henning Fode, and Museum Director Thomas Thulstrup, gave each their speech. The Crown Princess gave the opening speech herself. They were all given a guided tour around the exhibition. Part of the exhibition is a small "video" of the Crown Princess (here). Here she mentions that many have had the privilege to call themself 'Crown Princess', but only few have had the privilege as long as her.
Count Ingolf and Countess Sussie of Rosenborg, and Princess Benedikte also attended the opening. Princess Benedikte is patron for Koldinghus.
Mary looked absolutely splendid at the opening in Kolding. She wore her beautiful pink custom-made Claes Iversen coat. We have seen her wear this stunning piece before, but one more time does not hurt - at all! We get a little glimpse of her wearing a powder pink dress or skirt underneath. This is all I can tell. I love when she wears coats as "dresses".
She embraced the style by wearing rosy patent leather pumps from Gianvito Rossi. She must be very pleased with these pumps, because she has worn them many time before. And really, they match almost anything. The magnificent braided Bottega Veneta box clutch is also a beloved pieces of accessory in her wardrobe. It goes way back in time.
Because of her outstanding hairstyle, we get a really get look at her pink and white diamond earrings. These can be adjusted in length. So far, I have not been able to identify them, but I think they could be purchased on auction. Last but not least, Mary wore her golden Cartier bracelet.
