Day 1. Business promotion visit in India

26 February 2023

About fourteen days ago, it was announced that the Crown Prince Couple were going on a business promotion visit in India. That they would be accompanied by a larger business delegation of 36 Danish companies.

The main focus for this visit will be the green transition with special attention to water and energy. Several Danish politicians will also participate the delegation.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrived on February 26th. They were warmly welcomed (here).

First, they couple payed a visit to the famous marble monument, Taj Mahal. It is located close to the city of Agra. The monument was build from 1632 to 1653. It was the great mogul Shah Jahan who build Taj Mahal in honor of his late wife Mumtaz Mahal.

Followed was a visit to Agra Fort. The Fort is surrounded by a 2 kilometer wall. The Crown Prince Couple were given a guided tour around the Agra Fort. They were introduced to more than 1,000 years of history. Agra Fort is yet another great masterpiece by the great mogul Shah Jahan.

Usually, the couple arrive in silence. Often we see nothing from the arrival, but when they arrived in India they were warmly welcomed and a photo was taken - and later posted. It shows Mary wearing a wonderful and casual outfit. I truly adore these private outfits of hers. They make the greatest inspiration to me. She looked beautiful in a reused Imperial Fashion blazer and a beloved Athé by Vanessa Bruno blouse. The soft white linen trousers were an elegant match. Her tortoise-like glasses are from Gucci and the classy sling-back flats are the iconic design by Chanel.

When later visiting the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, Mary changed outfit. She has worn the outfit before on a work visit in Ethiopia in 2019 (here). I am not sure, I was ever a true fan but for this visit it worked with perfection. The paisley printed skirt is from Etro. She paired it was a simple white button-down blouse and a raffia belt. I really want to be able to identify that belt, but I have not been lucky just yet.

Mary embraced the look with plenty of amazing golden jewellery. The main designer of her jewellery are from the Danish brand Dulong Fine Jewelry. They custom-made some of the pieces. Among others, the colorful beaded bracelet and the rather large golden ring.

For quite some time, I have been looking to identify some new necklaces of hers. I know you have all been loving her new 'F' necklace. Halberstadt turned out to be the creator. I was able to identify it a while ago. I learned about her medallion necklace from Heaven. The stunning (personalized) piece is from Julie Sandlau.

We already know about the Thierry Lasry shades. Seems to be one of her favourite pairs. A the moment, I have no idea where to find her brand new espadrille wedge sandals. Any ideas? They do a smashing combo with the rest of the outfit.
