The confirmation of Prince Felix

Saturday, April 1st

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the confirmation of Prince Felix, son of Prince Joachim and Countess Alexandra. 


A big day for a young man, age 15. On Saturday April 1st Prince Felix celebrated his confirmation taking place in Fredensborg castle church. In this beautiful church, among others, Queen Margrethe, her sisters, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim are also confirmed. Close family members were all gathered to celebrate the day with him: his mother Countess Alexandra, father Prince Joachim, stepmother, his brothers and sister and grandparents. After having spend a couple of days along with King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium, which by the way left Copenhagen on March 30th, the Crown Prince couple and their four children also attended the confirmation of Prince Felix. Just wonderful to see them all together. My greatest wished to the Prince on his big day!


I must say every single one of them were beautiful dressed; women as men, boys as girls. The Queen wore blue, Marie was in dusty pink, Prince Nikolai in a great grey suit, Countess Alexandra wore dusty lilic and Mary was dressed in classy reused outfit. She embrace the style by wearing her custom made YDE Copenhagen dress paired with beige Christian Louboutin pumps, a new raffia clutch bag and same coloured leather gloves. Especially that new clutch caught my interest. Though I have tried to identify it, I never found anything like this one. Any ideas? My suggestions are either L.K. Bennett or Anya Hindmarch. What's on your mind? The same or someone else. As mentioned before every piece, except from the little clutch bag, are reused such as the dress. This YDE Copenhagen creation have been seen at a few previous occasions before Prince Felix's confirmation on Saturday, herehere, here, here, here, here. Seems like she just loved this (so do we!) matched with some kind of white coat, as she did at the confirmation with that white Prada coat. The aquamarine blue earrings and hair accessory matched perfectly to the rest of her outfit. End of April I'm going to my cousin's confirmation and for sure Mary's outfit are going to be my source of inspiration. Do you feel inspired?

Coat: Prada

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary attending the after party

As when his big brother Prince Nikolai got confirmed a couple of year's ago, Prince Felix's guests were invited to an after party lasting all night. Frederik and Mary also attended the party celebrating their nephew on his big day. The couple arrived hand in hand with a large smile on their face. I'm sure they both looked forward to enjoy the evening together. The Crown Prince was dressed in a chic checkered grey suit, while his lovely wife wore a black suit. It is the second time we get to see her in this edgy outfit. The first time we saw her in it was when she attended the world premiere of Jaha's Promise on March 16th, here. But this time she wore it with another lace blouse and matching (new) red suede pumps. Trying to ID these new pumps, which I simply adore, I stumbled across two different models -one from Gianvito Rossi and another from Jimmy Choo. Due to the shape, colour and the fact that Mary loves Rossi's creations -they are the ones I believe in. She embrace the style by wearing her black Carlend Copenhagen clutch and a pair of ball earrings. One great look!

    1. Thank you very much for you question :)

      As Harlow Raben perfectly describes; then the confirmation is a way to 'confirm' your christening when you are about 13-15 years old. The confirmation is also a kind of 'rite of passage' for teens to get one step closer to become an adult.

  2. It's when you 'confirm' you're christening. In Denmark we get a christening or a baptism, when we're babies and then when we're old enough 14/15 we get our confirmation.
