When it comes to royal fashion, the Duchess of Cambridge and Crown Princess Mary are among the few who rarely put a foot wrong. Now it seems that the Danish royal has taken a leaf out of Catherine’s book, drawing inspiration from one of her most favoured styles.

The wife of Crown Prince Frederik stepped out in the Danish town of Viborg on Monday wearing where she officially opened Viborg Regional Hospital’s new emergency centre, which is fully equipped with rooms for X-rays, scans and a surgery department.

Australian-born Mary looked stunning for the outing as she stepped out in a sophisticated yet stylish grey midi skirt which fell to her shins. The mother-of-four paired the understated skirt with a vibrant purple shirt, which featured puff sleeves and matching stiletto heels.

However it was the 47-year-old’s choice of accessories that really completed the look as Mary opted to finish off the outfit with a statement burgundy headband, with her dark hair falling down over her shoulders in bouncy curls.

Regionshospitalet Viborgs nye akutafdeling med skadestue, lægevagt og traumestuer, sengeafsnit, operationsstuer og skopirum blev i dag indviet af H.K.H. Kronprinsessen. Hendes Kongelige Højhed forestod den officielle indvielse af akutcenteret ved symbolsk at klippe et rødt bånd, der var opsat i den nye forhal. Efterfølgende fik Kronprinsessen en rundvisning i de nye rammer. Her overværende Kronprinsessen blandt andet en øvelse, hvor en figurant spillede en patient, der havde været ude for en ulykke. Patienten ankom til behandling i akutcentret, hvor et traumeteam tog imod og begyndte behandlingen, mens Kronprinsessen så på. Det nye akutcenter på Regionshospitalet Viborg er største delprojekt i det omfattende kvalitetsfondsbyggeri til i alt 1,16 milliarder kroner. Akutcenteret rummer blandt andet ny akutafdeling. Her vil alle akutte patienter fremover få en behandlingsplan inden for fire timer; uanset om de kommer selv, med ambulance eller på sigt lander på hospitalets tag i lægehelikopter.

A statement shared on the Det Danske Kongehus official Instagram page read: “Her Royal Highness oversaw the official inauguration of the emergency center by symbolically cutting a red ribbon set up in the new lobby.

“Subsequently, the Crown Princess was given a tour … Here, the Crown Princess survives, among other things, an exercise in which a figurine played a patient who had suffered an accident. The patient arrived for treatment in the emergency center, where a trauma team received and began treatment while the Crown Princess watched.” [sic]

Fans of the princess – who will one day become queen – were quick to compliment her for the stylish appearance on social media, with one person writing: “Class act the Crown Princess!” Another said: “Lovely Princess Mary.”

While a third commented: “HKH looks sensational! Well done, Crown Princess Mary, you always do a brilliant job.”

While statement headpieces have been all the rage this year, Mary’s headband echoed the style of another European royal, the Duchess of Cambridge. Catherine has stepped out wearing similar accessories on numerous occasions this year, so much so that they have become part of her signature look.

The duchess donned a headband most recently when she attended the annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall last month alongside her husband Prince William and other senior members of the British royal family.

The mother-of-three looked stunning for the annual event in a slim-fitting navy dress which she dressed up with a dazzling beaded headband from high street retailer Zara. Catherine has also opted for oversized headbands for other special occasions, including last year’s Christmas Day church service at Sandringham and for the christening of the Cambridge’s youngest child Prince Louis.
