Princess Mary never fails to impress with her elegant attire and graceful presence, and the Aussie-born royal has done it yet again in a gorgeous flowing blush frock during a special outing with her husband Prince Frederik.
The mother-of-four looked picture perfect in the floor-length gown at the Crown Prince Couple’s Awards at the weekend alongside her dapper husband, smiling happily at the crowd gathered to celebrate talented Danes.
The one-shoulder dress tucked in at Mary’s waist to show off her figure before flowing gracefully to the ground, while a cape over her left arm added to the elegance of the outfit. She wore her brunette locks up in a formal up-do for the occasion and kept jewellery to a minimum with a gold bangle around her wrist and and pair of dangly earrings.

Netop nu afholdes Kronprinsparrets Priser 2019, og fra scenen i Odense har H.K.H. Kronprinsessen netop afsløret, at Kronprinsparrets Sociale Pris i år gives til den sociale indsats Bydelsmødre. I sin motivation sagde Hendes Kongelige Højhed blandt andet: ”fordi de hver dag er med til at løfte og styrke minoritetskvinder og fordi den måde, de griber integration an på, både er vellykket og nytænkende." Bydelsmødrenes målgruppe er primært isolerede kvinder med etnisk minoritetsbaggrund, som har brug for viden om det samfund, de lever i. Bydelsmødrene, der selv primært har etnisk minoritetsbaggrund, giver den information og støtte, kvinderne har brug for.
Mary and Frederik had the honour of handing out the prized Crown Prince Couple’s Culture Award on the night to talented opera singer Elsa Dreisig. The singer is one of the biggest Danish opera talents, and performs right across the world in spectacular concert halls.
Speaking about her beautiful voice Frederik said: “When Elsa Dreisig develops her singing talent, her vocal hits the audience with a purity that is indicative of sensual melancholy, artistic excess and versatility.”
It has been a busy weekend for the royal couple who earlier visited the Art Museum Brandts in Denmark’s third largest city, Odense. The pair met with the city’s mayor Peter Rahbæk Juel and museum director Mads Damsbo and viewed the beautiful artistic work of Adam Jeppesen.
“The work consists of 2,000 cement sculptures on the floor, similar to uniform sand castles,” the Danish royal family explained in a post on Instagram. “With the work, Adam Jeppesen reflects on man’s yearning for eternity and at the same time on the perishability of everything.”
Sporting a more casual, yet still classy, look for the outing, Mary wore a pair of fitted grey trousers, paired with a light pink buttoned jacket. Standing tall in matching grey boots, the princess kept her brunette locks down and slightly waved for the visit to the museum.

For Kronprinsparrets står dagen i kulturens tegn, og i forbindelse med aftenens uddelinger af Kronprinsparrets Priser 2019 besøgte Deres Kongelige Højheder for kort tid siden Kunstmuseum Brandts i Odense. Her blev Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessen budt velkommen af Odenses borgmester Peter Rahbæk Juel og museumsdirektør Mads Damsbo og fik herefter forevist værket ”The Great Filter”, der er skabt af den danske kunster Adam Jeppesen. Værket består af 2.000 cementskulpturer på gulvet, der ligner ensartede sandslotte. Med værket reflekterer Adam Jeppesen over menneskets længsel mod evigheden og samtidig over altings forgængelighed. Moderne kunst optager Kronprinsparret, og gennem tiden har Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessen besøgt det odenseanske kunstmuseum flere gange. Således har Kronprinsen åbnet flere udstillinger på Brandts, senest i 2018, hvor Hans Kongelige Højhed åbnede en udstilling om kunstneren Hergé, der har skabt tegneseriefiguren Tintin. I 2015 blev en række af Kronprinsessens kjoler udstillet på Brandts i udstillingen DANISH FASHION NOW. Udstillingen præsenterede kreationer fra en række danske designere. I aften deltager Kronprinsparret i Kronprinsparrets Priser 2019, der finder sted i ODEON og kan ses på DR kl. 21.00.
Mary’s visit to Odense comes weeks after the princess travelled to Japan with her husband for a busy schedule of royal events. The stunning mum-of-four stole the show as she joined Frederik and Prince Charles for the enthronement ceremony of Japan’s Emperor Naruhito, before swapping into a beautiful evening gown for a fancy court banquet in the Imperial Palace in Tokyo in the evening.
The royal began the day in a floor-length grey ball gown with a matching floral headpiece. The sleek number fell straight to her feet, while she wore a blue sash across her chest and dazzling brooches to match a statement diamond necklace and earrings.
She was seen chatting to Prince Charles throughout, flashing a huge smile as they watched the ceremony. The centuries-old ritual is carried out to formalise the reign of the new emperor and they were joined there by several royals and dignitaries from around the world.
Later that evening Mary swapped into a show-stopping light pink ball gown with a sparkly panel across her chest and ending in a huge cape behind her. She coupled it with an intricate tiara and wore her hair tied back in an elegant up do for the occasion.
Prince Frederik looked every bit the part too, matching Prince Charles in a black military-style suit and red sash as he posed beside his wife. The danish royals’ Instagram page shared a series of photos online, writing: “Emperor Naruhito was presented with the imperial regalia [earlier in the day], attended by, among others, the Crown Prince and King[s] from all over Europe as well as heads of state and government from several countries.”
Other guests included King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain, and King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. Charles was there to represent his mother the Queen, while Mary and Frederik represented Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
