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.

Monday, April 16th

Is there a better way to celebrate ones birthday than with your family and a couple of hundred Danes? I really don't think so. This was how the Queen celebrated her birthday on Monday, when she turned 78 years old. On occasion of her birthday, she and the rest of the family (expect from Crown Princess Frederik who visited Greenland at the time) showed off on the balcony at Amalienborg. Several hundred Danes had showed up at the square in front of the palace to congratulate the Queen on her birthday. Close by, people wrote greetings to her as well as done every other year. A lovely tradition. Unfortunately, I have never been in Copenhagen during her birthday and therefor never had the chance myself to congratulate her with a greeting. Hopeful, one day I will. The whole royal family including the Queen seemed to be in a wonderful and great mood during the balcony scene.

Mary showed up along with her four children on the balcony in front of Amalienborg on her mother-in-laws birthday, dressed in a smashing reused red Dolce & Gabbana dress. It features a small detail around neckline, waist and hemline. A really beautiful dress worn at a few other occasions. We first saw it when Mary and the rest of her family inaugurated LEGO House in September 2017, here. Later that year, she wore it once again at the annual Christmas reception for partners and collaborators with the Mary Foundation, here. Looks just a stunning as the first time. Personally, I'm thrilled to see it again. What about you? This time she embraced the style by wearing a golden Orit Elhanati necklace, that white pearl ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry and bracelet from same designer. I am pretty sure you noticed the earrings as well. Right? I managed to get a pretty good close-up and from what I see they differently look new. It's a match of a black pearl pendant and diamond. Not sure you'll every find a more perfect combo, when it comes to jewellery. Unfortunately, I have no chance of telling you anything about her shoes. The balcony construction makes it almost impossible. But I am still allowed to guess. In my opinion it is most likely that she wore either black or nude pumps. Nevertheless, if you actually manage to find a picture showing just a glimpse of her shoes, don't hesitate to share it with me. Nothing surprising about her outfit, but it works perfectly.
