The Mary Foundation against violence

20 February 2023

Fighting against domestic violence has been on the Mary Foundation's agenda for many years. Lately, the foundation has intensified their efforts to find ways to combat especially partner violence.

"Violence is never acceptable - and can never be justified. And yet thousands of families live with the dark secret of domestic violence." - The Mary Foundation (here)

It is estimated that more than 33,000 women in Denmark live with violence acted by their partner every year. The same goes with children living in homes dominated by violence.

In a new video, the Crown Princess is joined by a number of victims of this type of violence. All of them encourages in their way to speak out loud and reach out if they suffer from violence or knows someone living with violence.

As mentioned before, Mary has attended the prestiges presentation of the EliteForsk Award for many years. Almost from the beginning. I have collected some links for you to see both former shows - and of course outfits. Hope I was able to collect all of them down below. Any favorites? I fancy her look from 2009 and 2020.

For this years award show, Mary had chosen a really lovely outfit. A bit more plain as usual, but why make it more complicated than necessary? She has worn both the Red Valentino blouse and Dolce & Gabbana skirt before. Actually also as a complete set. It was when visiting London late last year (here). The Prada coat has been in her wardrobe for years. I have no count on how many times Mary has worn it, but it is more than at 25 occasions.

A closer look revealed to me that Mary embraced the simple style with yellow and white diamond earrings. I have never been able to identify them. Many one day. Back in the days, she adore this combination of rings. Two diamond bands from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and that other stunning diamond ring. Also never identified.

To match the rest of her outfits, she was wearing a beloved black leather clutch from Quidam and brand new suede pointed pumps from Jimmy Choo. Recognizing designers of her black pointed pumps collection is already a struggle for me and now she added just another pair. Truly a nightmare. But what do you think? Is she a winner?

Today, Crown Princess Mary can celebrate her 51st birthday! When she turned 50 last year, it was celebrated with exclusive interviews in magazines, dinners and more private gatherings. This year will be a bit different but I imagine she will enjoy her day as much.

Maybe some of you even share birthday with our beloved Crown Princess? Or maybe you will soon attend a birthday party. Nevertheless, I have found a little something that might inspire you for your next birthday outfit.

Let us all congratulate her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary on occasion of her 51st birthday!

Presenting the Women's Board Award 2023

03 February 2023

It is not the first time Crown Princess Mary is attending the presentation of the Women's Board Award. It was first handed out in Denmark in 2014. The Crown Princess has presented winners of the Women's Board Award for now seven years - 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.

11 women were nominated as role models for future board leaders. The Women's Board Award aim to inspire more women to take leading positions. To spotlight female board members. Also to enlighten how women can create value to companies.

This years winner of the Women's Board Award 2023 was Malou Aamund. She was given the award for her many years being involved board work. Alongside she has also previously worked a number of leading positions in the IT industry.

Yes. Yes. Yes. This is exactly the look I have been waiting for! I truly missed her wearing some colours and that dark green is everything I needed. This magical dress is custom-made by talented Søren Le Schmidt. A one-of-a-kind Danish designer. He has created several pieces to her wardrobe (here, here, here). Mary wore the emerald green dress for the first time, when being celebrated by collaborators and partners of the Mary Foundation on occasion of her 50th birthday last year (here).

As in 2022, she decided to embraced the style by wearing nude pointed pumps from Prada. I always adores when she matches a bright colour with nude accessories. The beautiful ostrich clutch is from Naledi Copenhagen. A personal favourite of hers.

Mary also wore a stunning green ring. A lovely match with the custom-made Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen earrings. Of course, we all like the idea of "F" standing for Frederik and the small medalion to be a gift from her husband. Right? Nevertheless, the shorter 'F' necklace has been identified as a Halberstadt creation.

Visiting health care workers in Glostrup

02 February 2023

After attending the presentation of the Children's Aid Award and the Lillebror Prize at National Museum of Denmark (here), Crown Princess Mary payed a visited to health care workers in Glostrup Municipality.

The municipality is part of "Together without Violence - toddler parents". Four other municipalities are also working along with Glostrup to combat domestic violence amongst partners. All health care workers in the participating municipalities are first educated and then trained to watch out for signs of domestic violence, when visiting parents of newborns.  

"Together without Violence" is a project in collaboration of the Mary Foundation, Ole Kirk's Foundation and Dialogue against Violence.

Crown Princess Mary participated one of their sessions. She also give a little speech. Among others, she included how unique the health care workers access are to the families and how this makes it possible to discover signs of domestic violence and by that hopefully decrease the number of children growing up in families with violence.

Crown Princess Mary participated group work with the health care workers participating todays teaching

Among others, psychologists from Dialogue against Violence spoke as part of the session

Because Mary visited the health care workers in Glostrup the same day attending the presentation of Children's Aid Award and Lillebror Prize, she was wearing the same outfit (here). She embraced the style by wearing a reused Britt Sisseck blouse with simple black trousers. I guess, Mary could be wearing the JOSEPH cape as well and possibly also her Quidam clutch as earlier the same day.

Unfortunately, I still have no close-up of her ring but the earrings are also the same. They are mastered by Dulong Fine Jewelry. I am a true fan of Mary wearing glasses more often. She has lately. She is especially fond of those tortoise-like glasses from Gucci. Her very fine diamond studded 'F' necklace is crafted by Halberstadt.

Presenting the Children's Aid Award and the Lillebror Prize

02 February 2023

Since 2005, Crown Princess Mary has worked as patron of the Children's Aid Day. This is also why she was attending the presentation of the Children's Aid Award and the Lillebror Prize.

The Children's Aid Award are given in honour of a person who has made an extra effort in helping one of more children in fostercare. This person was Leon Holm Krag. On the other hand, the Lillebror Prize is all about honouring a child who is in fostercare or has been. This years winner was Maja Herholdt.

Crown Princess Mary presented and handed over the two awards in the halls of National Museum of Denmark.

Mary was beautifully dressed at the presentation at National Museum of Denmark. She had chosen one of my favourite Britt Sisseck blouse. Just look at that colour. We truly underestimate orange in our wardrobe. It was with such grace she wore the blouse with a pair of simple black trousers. At the arrival, Mary was wearing an old JOSEPH cape featuring a wonderful little detail. Black leather patches on each shoulder. I love how she wore the wrap from the blouse as a belt. It is all about the little details.

I still, need to identify her nav blue suede boots. She has worn them before, but I was never able to identify them. Nevertheless, I adore how they matched the fine leather clutch from Quidam. If they were a great match with the rest of her outfit, I do not know. What do you think? Go or no go?

Looks like we will be seeing Mary with glasses in the future. She has been wearing those Gucci glasses on every attended event lately. But we do not mind, right?

When admiring her glasses, you will also notice the magnificent golden earrings crafted by Dulong Fine Jewelry. I see a golden ring as well but I need something more to identify it.

Meeting with Global Partnership for Educatio

26 January 2023

For quite some years, the Crown Princess has sought to combat domestic violence, bullying and loneliness. Also trying to improve, among others, girls and women's health, rights and well-being. 

Children and young people have been in her agenda. Especially, loneliness amongst young people has been a matter of heart for the Crown Princess the last few years as a consequence of the pandemic.

This was not on the paper for her last meeting with CEO of Global Partnership for Education Laura Frigenti. Global Partnership for Education is also know as GPE. They work hard to promote education in collaboration with other relevant partners. Denmark is one of those partners.

CEO Laura Frigenti shared the organization's latest evaluation. An evaluation that estimate that around 244 million children and young people around the world do not go to school. Most of them because they live in some of the world poorest countries suffering from among others significant conflicts, hunger and floods.

The meeting took place at Amalienborg.


Mary had chosen a very fine look, when meeting with Laura Frigenti, CEO of  Global Partnership for Education. Everything is a reuse. Even the entire outfit is a reuse. On November 2nd 2017, she inaugurated Nøvling School and attended an annual meeting with school leaders (here). Not much has changed. The simple black WILLOW jacket and that patterned Heartmade Julie Fagerholt dress are a lovely match.

She accessories the outfit with a black leather belt from Celine. A beloved belt worn on a number of different occasions. I think we often forget to praise belts (and hats). Sometimes they make the difference between a complete look and something feels missing.

The fine tortoise-like glasses are from Gucci.

One photo do not show much, but I still recognize those wonderful Rose Quartz earrings custom-made by Dulong Fine Jewelry. Mary was also wearing a couple of golden necklaces. A small medallion and her diamond studded 'F' necklace from Halberstadt.

The opening of "udForsk"

12 January 2023

Crown Princess Mary was accompanied by Minister of the Interior and Health Sofie Løhde, when attending the opening of "udForsk". A brand new center dedicated to give children and young people a closer look at in the world of cancer research and to stimulate their interest in science in general.

She arrived at the Cancer Society's head office in Copenhagen, where the center is located, to experience what "udForsk" is all about. The Crown Princess joined an interactive journey of the human body and games about DNA. 

Students from Tre Falke School were also present at the opening. Ready to explore along with the Crown Princess.

A bit more edgy than usual, but super cool! I really like when Mary embrace this style. It has happened a few times over the years. This look is no exception. The simplicity and "honesty" of her outfit at the opening of "udForsk" suits Mary very well. She has worn both jacket and skirt before. They are created by Mark Kenly Domino Tan. Among others, she was wearing the skirt in her exclusive interview with Jyllands-Posten on occasion of her 50th birthday in February 2022 (here). Mary also wore both skirt and jacket, when visiting Koldinghus as part of preparations for a birthday exhibition in January 2022 (here).

The diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe have truly become a favourite of hers. Mary seems to love them so much because she has worn them a million times already. I was never really fan. Still, they match the rest of her outfit with such perfection. A closer look also revealed that Mary added a new piece of jewellery. A small golden cuff-earring from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Rebekka Notkin is master of the golden diamond ring.

What I love most about Mary's outfit from the opening of "udForsk" is by no doubt those black leather boots from Prada. The shape. The toe. The heel. Everything is outstanding about these boots. I learned about the Prada boots from Royal Fashion Police (here).

Simply, what is not to like?
