The Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award

Tuesday, January 10th

Crown Princess Mary received The Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award. The ceremony took place at Det Berlingske Hus in Copenhagen.

No doubt that Mary has shown her commitment to the Danish people right from the beginning. Shortly after her marriage with Frederik in 2014, she got engaged in social work, among other things resulted in the Mary Foundation's establishment in 2007. Since then she has become the patron of several international and national organizations as well as foundation's all working to provide, those who need it, a second chance in life. Now her work with as patron of disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in society is rewarded with the Berlingske Foundation Honorary Award! The award is given to someone who has done something unusual for the benefit of the Danish society and has been handed over since 1975. For sure Mary should be proud of herself and what she has achieved! She works hard and that should indeed be rewarded in my opinion. It is not strange at all Mary was in such great mood when she arrived at 3:00 pm local time to the award ceremony. In a well-spoken speech, here, she did not try to hide how honored she was. It was clear to me that the Crown Princess was very grateful to receive the award. A huge and laud congratulations to Mary on behalf of this prestigious honorary award.

  It's worth mentioning that the Crown Prince couple attended dinner on occasion of the Mary's new award. According to Billed Bladet, here, the dinner took place at restaurant Le Sommelier near Amalienborg castle. The couple arrived around 7:00 pm. local time. From what I see Mary was dressed in a pair of black (maybe velvet) trousers, a sparkly turtleneck blouse, metallic cap toe pumps from Gianvito Rossi and a pink Carlend Copenhagen clutch -perfectly matching her Annikat earrings! And the of course we have the black Prada coat.

What made this outfit outstanding is indeed the huge smile on her face! Which was beautifully framed by a berry lipgloss. Keeping the style sophisticated and classy she was wearing a brand new figure hugging Etro dress. Kate informed about the identity of the dress, thanks. Usually not something I would have chosen myself because of the pattern, but because the is black I think it works really well. Especially I'm in love with its length and 3/4 sleeves. The rather long dress makes a perfect match with the bit shorter black Prada coat. Very feminine. Maybe you did not notice it, but actually the dress features a belt too. Pretty sure this is not the last time we are going to see her in that specific dress. Both leather gloves, the Quidam clutch and her Gianvito Rossi pumps are black and looks super chic with the printed dress. Mary embraced the style by wearing her Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen bracelets, three diamond rings and a pair of reused Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings featuring lovely blue pendants.

Congratulations Prince Vincent & Princess Josephine!

Crazy how time goes by with such speed! Can you believe it that six years has already gone since Frederik and Mary's twins were born? Little Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine turns 6 years old today and it is time for me to congratulate them both on this big day. On occasion of their birthday three new pictures have been published of the twins and they are just lovely, here.  

Happy birthday and congratulations from Style of Mary and all it's readers to the Prince and Princess of Denmark!

Launch of Antibulli

Saturday, January 7th

Crown Princess Mary participated in the launching of Antibulli along with the Mary Foundation and handball player Mikkel Hansen. The launching took place in Silkeborg. 

Around noon the Crown Princess arrived to Vestergadehallen in Silkeborg to participate in the launching of a new project called Antibulli. The project is made in collaboration with the Mary Foundation MH24 - The association Mikkel Against Bullying which has handball player Mikkel Hansen as frontman. Antibulli are intended to strengthen unity and community among children in the Danish handball clubs. Maybe you remember having heard about this before, then it may be because you have heard about it before. The collaboration was announced a year ago and an interview with Mikkel Hansen and the Crown Princess were broadcasted on Danish television. Now it was finally time to test drive the project; here children, handball coaches and parents showed up to try out this new project. From what I see, it was a success. Everybody participating including Mary seemed to have a great time. A great start of something I think will continue as a success. I wish all involved in the project all the best and of course, congratulations!

Just a couple of days ago Mary was dressed in the most outstanding evening gown featuring expensive fabrics, lace and tulle. Completely different we saw her wear jeans, a black and white Hummel t-shirt and a pair of colourful New Balance sneakers at the launching in Silkeborg. Isn't this why we just adore her so much? Never too royal to show up wearing everyday jeans and sneakers. Dressed like all the others. At the arrival Mary wore a black coat from Hugo Boss featuring leather pockets -an edgy detail! I simply love when we see her all casual like this. But no outfit without something glittering which is why she was wearing her Cartier bracelet and a pair of Hartmanns diamond earrings. I would love to wear a casual outfit and diamond earrings with such elegance as she does, but it never works as good as for Mary. Think we saw a very comfortable Crown Princess, having a great time in Silkeborg.

Day 3. New Year's reception at Christiansborg castle

Wednesday, January 4th

Queen Margrethe hosted the fourth New Year's reception taking place at Christiansborg castle. Officers from the Defence and Emergency Management Agency, I., II. and III. social class and invited representatives of major union confederations and patronages were invited to attend the reception. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary represented the royal family along with the Queen. 

It was more than an overwhelming end of some fantastic days here at the beginning of new year. We have got three amazing days only dedicated to celebrate the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. This last New Year's reception, which took place at Christiansborg castle as the third reception did, was held to honor officers from the Defence and Emergency Management Agency, I., II. and III. social class and invited representatives of major union confederations and patronages. More than 700 guests were invited. That many people can only be invited if you have a big house, like a castle. Luckily the Queen of Denmark has plenty of those. Talking about Queen Margrethe, then it is worth mentioning that she arrived in a golden carriage like she always do on the third day. She drove all the way from Amalienborg castle to Christiansborg castle, where she (of course) arrived as the last one, right after the Crown Prince couple. 

Only a few days past January 1st and we have already seen some dazzling new and reused pieces! What's so exciting about Mary when it comes to fashion and a reason why I admire her so much, is differently because she always manages to surprise and impress all at once. Seems like she never has to compromise 'fashion solutions'. She is always well-dressed and good looking no matter where she is going. Also when she is attending a huge reception with 700 special invited guests like this. Mary shone wearing a brand new plum gown created by Lasse Spangenberg Copenhagen -and yes, it has been confirmed, here. A figure hugging dress, floor length and simply gorgeous new gown. Perfectly matching she embrace the glamours style wearing a cape from the same designer. The very same we saw on January 1st. Splendid, right? Completely adoring she accessorized her look with black pearl jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry and modified ruby earrings as part of the Ruby Parure. I also see two more bracelets; one from Cartier and one from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Heaven made me aware the her burgundy clutch is from Sergio Rossi, thanks! Then we have the suede burgundy Gianvito Rossi pumps. Both makeup and hair were flawless as usual.
