Opening of 'Danish Women's Shelters'

Friday, April 20th

As guest of honor and founder of the Mary Foundation, the Crown Princess attended the opening of Danish Women's Shelters in Copenhagen. The shelter acts both as residence and counseling center for battered women with special focus on newly born mothers and pregnant women. The Crown Princess was kindly welcomed with flowers and lots of smiles when she arrival to the new shelter in the middle of Copenhagen. As part of the official opening she gave a warm and sincere speech. She visited the shelter along the Mary Foundation and brought with er a present -backpacks. These backpacks are a tool made by initiative from the Mary Foundation in collaboration with Ole Kirk's Fund and LOKK. They work as a way to get children to talk about their experiences. What these children have in common is that they come from families where violence is involved. Each year a couple of thousand backpacks are given to children at shelters across the country. The Crown Princess included the backpacks in her speech. Later, she was given a tour around the new facilities accompanies by Minister of Children and Social Affairs Mai Mercado and leader of the shelter Susanne Larsen.

The same say the Crown Princess also met with Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, who is WHO Regional Director for Europe. The Crown Princess is patron of the WHO Regional Office for Europe. She was informed about the work of WHO and how the organisation try to improve healthcare- and livingstandards. Future activities were also discussed. She also payed a visit to a photo exhibition made by WHO and UNICEF about vaccines for vulnerable populations. This takes place as part of the European Immunization Week.

The temperature is rising and days are getting a bit warmer, which means times for spring outfits. During her day in Copenhagen both opening a new shelter and visiting a photo exhibition, Mary was beautifully dressed. She embraced a feminine set of colours and smashing silhouettes. Even the fabrics are worth mentioning. Mary had chosen to paired a brand new Stella McCartney blouse with a multicoloured pleated skirt from Diane Von Furstenberg. Both new pieces have been identified by Heaven. I first thought she was wearing trousers. Then that striped "thing" showed up and I knew it was no longer trousers. What do you think about her new skirt? I kinda like it. Looks really nice with the powder pink silk blouse. I also like the way she accessories the outfit with golden jewellery. Mary dazzled wearing earrings and a ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry and a Orit Elhanati necklace. A very beautiful match.  I also see another necklace as well. To me it looks like this one worn back in 2010 and 2015, here. Both the Gianvito Rossi pumps and Quidam clutch are featuring the most incredible blue colour. The skirt is still a surprise to me, but I think is makes a great spring piece. Especially the way she matched it with jewellery and all.

Day of Research 2018 & Miniverset

Thursday, April 17th

It was about to become a wonderful day for the Crown Princess. Around noon she arrived to the IT-University in Copenhagen to attend the official opening of Day of Research 2018. Here the Crown Princess was warmly welcomed by, among others, Minister of Education and Research Søren Pind. It was a patron of the event she attended the opening as guest of honor. Day of Research is a science festival that takes place each year in April. The festival last for a week and gives to opportunity to explore more than seven hundred different activities about science. After the official opening ceremony the Crown Princess was given a tour around the festival, where she paired a visit to the "hacker zone". Here scientist and students gave her a demonstration on activities related to hacking -including something with a fully packed suitcase.

A couple of hours later she was visiting Hellerup near Copenhagen to attend the opening of Miniverset at the Experimentarium, here. As earlier during her other visit, she was in a splendid mood. Also at the arrival, where she was welcomed by Managing Director Kim Gladstone Herlev. About Miniverset -it is a universe created for children aged 1-5 years focusing on natural science. The universe is divided into seven areas with different activities combining play and learning. Soon, the press found the Crown Princess on the floor playing with the children and having lots of fun. She even dressed up as a mole as part of the game. To me it seems like everyone were having a great time.

During her day in Copenhagen, Mary was dressed both chic and practical. She paired a brand new jacket with white trousers. So far I have not been able to identify her new blue jacket. It features some interesting details -the collar, print, fabric and hemline. Even with these details I can't find anything that looks similar. Do you have ideas where to find her new jacket? Pretty much the same goes with the trousers. To me they look old but I could be wrong. At the opening of Day of Research 2018 she carried a clutch in the same wonderful blue colour as the jacket. It is from Quidam. She then embraced the style of a chic modern woman, wearing grey suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Some claim they are white. I strongly disagree with that. Mary had chosen to wear several white pearl jewellery all from Dulong Fine Jewelry. This include both earrings, bracelets (Mary's comes with bigger white pearls as the link shows) and ring. One of the bracelets is her golden Cartier bangle. I kinda missed that piece. As usually, her hair looked completely stunning as goes with her makeup. Imagine her wearing red nail polish with this look. That would have been a great match to the blue jacket and white pearls.

Inauguration of Slagelse Hospital

Tuesday, April 17th

On a sunny Tuesday the Crown Princess arrived to Slagelse, where she was warmly welcomed with smiles, flags, greetings and flowers. The reason for her visit was to inaugurate the newly build emergency hospital in Slagelse. A new extension to the hospital was also inaugurated during her visit. The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood when she was met by the public and welcomed by Regional Council Chairman Heino Knudsen and Hospital Director Vagn Bach. As part of the official inauguration ceremony she cut a red ribbon. Afterwards, the Crown Princess was given a guided tour around the new facilities to see for herself, what she had just inaugurated. I can't help myself from getting in a great mood just looking at her smile and how happy she made everyone with her presence.

A inauguration is always a big thing, which takes a perfect outfit to complete. I don't know about you, but I have completely fallen in love with this outfit. From head to toe. What is not to love? She embraced a feminine style by wearing a reused Elise Gug (collection: 2013) blouse. The blouse has been worn at countless other occasions, here, here & here. Mary then matched the blouse with a brand new powder pink skirt. I have not been able to identify the skirt yet. Do you have any ideas? I tried everything, but nothing seems to get my closer to find the one. As accessories Mary had chosen to reuse one of her beautiful Susanne Juul hats. Maybe you recall her wearing it when visiting Poland in 2015, here. Such a magnificent design. Wish we wore hats mor often today. Then I would wear something like this every day. She also wore stunning jewellery from both Hartmann's, Orit Elhanati, Dulong Fine Jewelry (collection: SS18 limited edition) and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. I am sure you can identify all of them without my help. Last but not least, Mary paired the outfit with python pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Simply a wonderful mix of colours, textures and silhouettes. I tend to say this is a dreamy outfit, which makes me desire spring even more.
