I'm back from my vacation and I have been looking so much forward to make this specific post with all the new pictures from this vacation on Gråsten Palace. All gathered together from children to grandparents.
To me there is something special about this yearly family gathering. Queen Margrethe and her husband Prince Henrik invites their children, grandchildren etc for some good days together all by themselves. One of the only time a year the royal family are on their own, away from the public. The atmosphere is just so unique; the children are running around and playing and the adults are having fun even though every step are followed by photographers. This is the time a year when they are allow to act completely normal and do whatever they want - the day are not planned like everything else; anything can happen such day. That's what I love to so much! In my opinion, which you of course do not have to share with me, the royals are something special and not like everybody else but we still want to see them as we are. We respect their title (or at least some do) and they respect our wish to see them act normal.
Well, enough about thoughts. Mary was absolutely fantastic in her new dark blue Rabens Saloner (Spring/Summer 2013) dress featuring a elastic belt and wide neckline. One thing I noticed is, when Frederik and Mary are somewhere together they always wear clothes that match each other. Which also was the case here because Frederik was in a blue Ralph Lauren shirt and beige shorts - like his oldest son Prince Christian, he was also in a green Ralph Lauren shirt. Princess Isabella and her little sister were in each a floral dress and sandals and ballet flats. Prince Vincent in a sweet blue and white checkered shirt with blue shorts matching his mom and dad. Four very cute children of theirs!
Let us go back to our wonderful Mary because her outfit was quite interesting, great components were matched together with the new blue dress. I think I'll start from her shoes today - a little unusual as everything else about this day. Theresa identified her new white lace wedges as Tory Burch, which I fell in love with immediately, I kinda fancy the style and combination with the casual dress and the feminine wedges. Think I need a pair of similar wedges for my summer wardrobe... As casual her look was as expensive jewellery she were wearing. Marianne Dulong is the one of designed both two of the three bracelets and the oval shapes earrings. Love that the pendant is green, the same colour as her son's shirt! Great detail. The third bracelet is Shamballa Jewels. Her sunglasses is her model from Prada (2012). Is this a wonderful outfit or what?!
