Earlier in the morning, Queen Margrethe welcomed India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He was on an official visit in Denmark as part of a larger travel across Europe. He was officially welcomed by the Queen at Amalienborg.
Queen Margrethe later hosted a gala dinner at Christian VII's Palace at Amalienborg. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also attended the gala dinner. So did, Denmark's Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen.
The Danish family members and the Indian Prime Minister welcomed all of the invited guests with a personal greeting; a handshake and smiles.
Well, well, well. You have to love this look. Mary, you look damn good in that Valentino gown! Do you remember that she has worn it before? It was back in 2019 at the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Naruhito of Japan (here). The gown captured us then as much as this time. It has been altered a bit. Lace sleeves have been added. I kinda like this little adjustment. What do you think? Go or no go? Think it gives the gown some softness.
Mary accessorized the stunning Valentino gown with huge diamond earrings. They have been seen sold on an Bruun Rasmussen Auction in 2010. She has worn them before. First time was in Norway, when celebrating King Harald and Queen Sonja's 80th birthday in 2017 (here). She matched the beautiful earrings with a silver clutch from J. Furmani and some silver other jewellery's. Like that bracelet and ring both featuring rather large purple stones.
She also embraced the style by wearing silver satin pumps from Manolo Blahnik. This is the same shoes she wore back in 2019 with the gown. It is indeed a match made in heaven. Her hair and makeup completed the outfit with such perfection.
