Crown Princess Mary is known for her impeccable fashion sense and the Danish royal’s latest outfit didn’t disappoint as she stepped out in a summery pink bohemian-inspired dress for a packed day of official engagements. The Australian-born princess, originally from Hobart, Tasmania, donned the patterned frock, which nipped her in at the waist, as she spoke at an event in Copenhagen, Denmark, for her charitable organisation The Mary Foundation on Monday, before spending the afternoon with school children.

The mother-of-four looked stylish in the colourful silky number, which has proven to be a staple of her wardrobe. She was first seen in the thrifty frock from mega clothing retail company H&M in May at the launch of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, an event on sustainable fashion.

I festsalen på Københavns Rådhus deltog H.K.H. Kronprinsessen i dag i lanceringen af den årlige begivenhed Verdenstimen, der har til formål at lære børn og unge om FN’s verdensmål for bæredygtig udvikling. De 17 verdensmål blev vedtaget af alle verdens nationer på FN’s generalforsamling i september for fire år siden, og helt konkret handler målene om at løse flere af klodens største udfordringer inden 2030. Ved dagens lanceringsfest overværede Hendes Kongelige Højhed sammen med elever fra 5. og 6. klasse på Randersgades Skole en række taler om udbredelsen af kendskabet til verdensmålene i folkeskoler og på ungdomsuddannelser i Danmark. Efterfølgende deltog alle i fællessang og sluttede af med de kendte rådhuspandekager. 📸 Birger Storm / Aller Foto & Video ©

Changing the ensemble up for her latest two engagements, Mary teamed the elegant outfit this time with minimal accessories, nude pointed heels and a matching bag. While she wore her dark locks down in a wavy style and kept her make-up neutral.

The crown princess, who married Danish Crown Prince Frederik in 2004, spoke to a crowd of people about loneliness and social exclusion at the first engagement for her charity. The Mary Foundation is close to the princess’s heart and its three areas of focus are bullying, domestic violence and loneliness. Princess Mary then spent the afternoon with children in grades five and six and spoke about the importance of sustainability.

Gennem interviews med 78 mennesker, der i større eller mindre grad står uden for fællesskabet, tegner en ny rapport et billede af hverdagsliv præget af social eksklusion. Som formand for Mary Fonden deltog H.K.H. Kronprinsessen i morges i lanceringen af den nye rapport, der bærer navnet ”Bag om Fællesskabsmålingen”, og som er udført af Mary Fonden, Tryg Fonden og Det Nationale Forsknings- og Analysecenter for Velfærd. Ved lanceringen holdt Hendes Kongelige Højhed tale om budskaberne i rapporten, hvor det blandt andet konkluderes, at udsatte mennesker drømmer om en meningsfuld hverdag. For mange er det ensbetydende med et job, men mange oplever samtidig, at der ikke er plads til dem på arbejdsmarkedet på grund af manglende fleksibilitet og mulighed for individuelle hensyn. Rapporten ”Bag om Fællesskabsmålingen” er en opfølgning på "Fællesskabsmålingen" fra 2017, som undersøgte forskellige befolkningsgruppers oplevelse af at være eller ikke at være en del af fællesskaber. Den nye undersøgelse dykker ned i den udsatte gruppes erfaringer og ønsker. 📸 Steen Brogaard ©

Fans of the princess were quick to comment on the beautiful pictures, with one writing: “Good purpose for supporting. The Crown Princess is proficient and empathetic. Another added: “Beautiful pics. The efforts of Her Royal Highness for the uplift of the country are commendable.” While a third wrote: “Well done Crown Princess! It’s a step in the right direction! Congratulations on your humanitarian efforts. God bless u always.”

Meanwhile, Princess Mary’s latest glamorous appearance comes one week after she stepped out in a stylish floral dress to open the Odense Blomsterfestival, a flower festival in Denmark earlier this month. The mother-of-four looked incredible in the floaty floral dress which featured a striking pattern that looked eye-catching without being too busy.

Fashion is a fickle game and history has taught us it’s only a matter of time before what’s old is new again. That appears to be the case for one of the most iconic looks from the 1960s – florals and gypsy sleeves – and we’ve got Mary to thank for its comeback.

The Danish royal family shared several images of Mary’s latest outing on their official social media accounts, writing alongside the snaps: “As a patron, Dauphin Kronprinsessen [crown princess] opened today the festival, where this season celebrates the 20th anniversary. This year’s theme is therefore “at through: with time in the centre”, and at today’s opening, kronprinsessen met many of the gardeners and volunteers who have worked to make the festival ready.”

It also comes a few weeks after she was pictured out alongside her husband Crown Prince Frederik II as they enjoyed a romantic sunset whilst on a cruise holiday with their young children. Posing for a sweet snap together, the royal couple – who will one day become the Danish king and queen – wrapped their arms around each other, as they beamed at the camera from the deck of their royal yacht.

Princess Mary, who is more often seen in stunning gowns, looked gorgeous as she went make-up free, embracing her natural beauty, with her long dark locks hanging loosely over her shoulders. The Australian-born member of royalty kept her outfit casual for the occasion too, opting for a boho-style paisley patterned frock.

The 47-year-old’s off-duty look was perfectly complimented by her husband’s attire as the heir to the Danish throne donned a patterned button-up shirt and opted not to shave as he made the most of his time off from conducting official duties. Fans were quick to compliment the pair for the loving display, with one writing: “With a holiday beard and without makeup – This is how it should be on the summer holidays. A beautiful and healthy Crown Prince couple with obvious love for each other and the children. Family togetherness.”
