When it comes to fashion, Crown Princess Mary rarely puts a foot wrong and that was certainly the case on Tuesday as she carried out a number of official engagement as she continued her three-day royal tour of Indonesia in collaboration with the UN’s Population Fund (UNFPA)

The Danish royal looked effortlessly chic in a boho-style blue dress for her first outing of the day as she arrived at Peacumber Coffee in the Indonesian capital city of Jakarta, where she  spoke about the importance of sexual and reproductive health, as well as the rights of young girls and women.

Mary, who is patron of the UNFPA, looked sophisticated for the outing in the floaty blue dress which featured an intricate paisley design and a multi-tiered skirt. The dress was perfect for the hot Indonesian climate thanks to its loose fitting skirt and flowing sleeves.

The Australian-born princess added a touch of elegance to her look with a pair of beige stiletto heels and pearl droplet earrings, while she kept her hair off her face by sweeping it into a classic pony tail.

Several photographs from the visit were shared on the official Det Danske Kongehus Facebook page which showed Mary, who is often praised for her humility and down to earth personality, greeting and speaking with locals.

A statement shared on the Danish royal family’s Facebook page read: “The UNFPA is working to ensure that every pregnancy is desired, that every birth is safe and young people do not get HIV/AIDS and that every young will be able to live their full potential.”

For her second look of the day, however, Mary upped the fashion ante and recycled one of her tried and tested looks, as the mother-of-four stepped out in a bright pink oriental-inspired gown which was decorated with brightly coloured flowers and fastened with a black tie-belt around her waist.

The 47-year-old, who married Danish heir to the throne Crown Prince Frederik in 2004, put on a show-stopping display on Tuesday night as she arrived at the famous temple complex Borobudur in Central Java where the Danish Embassy in Indonesia held a dinner to honour the royal’s first ever visit to the country.

Wearing her dark locks up in a sophisticated chignon up-do, complete with a delicate headband, Mary oozed elegance and class as she mingled with fellow attendees and posed for photographs before taking her seat to watch a special performance.

Mary also delivered a speech at the event, in which she said: “I know that Australians are one of the top five largest tourist groups to Indonesia and in my own background, having grown up in Australia, it perhaps is expected that I also would have visited Indonesia – I actually haven’t.

“But now I am here, I have always wanted to but, yes, it is my first trip and a chance to experience the great diversity of this beautiful country. But now, however, as a Dane.”

It’s not the first time Mary has worn the striking dress though as just last year she donned the eye-catching frock for an official event in Copenhagen in honour of her beloved husband Prince Frederik. Back in May 2018, the crown princess stepped out for one of many events held to honour her husband’s 50th birthday and the royal couple were accompanied by their children Prince Christian, Princess Isabella and twins Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent.
