Crown Princess Mary Restyles Old Gown For New Portrait

Crown Princess Mary re-styled an outfit she wore on New Year's in 2014. Her elegant approach to fashion has earned her the title of most stylish royal, but Crown Princess Mary is not afraid to take risks. The future Queen of Denmark has re-styled an outfit she wore on New Year's Eve two years ago for a new portrait released by the Danish Royal Court. Proving she is as thrifty as she is stylish, Mary first stunned in the full-length burgundy gown at a New Year's banquet in 2014, pairing the dress with a matching choker adorned with a jewel encrusted brooch.

  1. Princess Mary always wears long dresses and tiaras wonderfully. She has a real style.

    1. She actually has acces to a third which she is wearing in the last photo on the left: The Midnight Tiara. She also sometimes adds pearls to her wedding tiara, which makes for a different look.
      But I agree, it would be nice to see her borrow some of the other Danish tiaras that are reserved for the Queen at the moment.

    2. Vida i agree with you; queen Margarethe could lend her some tiaras once in awhile just like queen Beatrix did with maxima

  4. Agree. But Queen Margrethe got cold feet in giving danish tiaras to her daughter in laws because of what happened with Alexandra.
    Mary might have just 2 tiaras but at least they are hors. She owns her wedding tiara, and her rubis tiara is also personally owned by her husband thus by her as long as they are married.
    Poor Marie though has just one single tiara which is a loan from the Queen.

    1. What happened with Alexandra's tiara when she divorced Joachim?

    2. She was given this tiara as a personal gift from the Queen on her wedding Day. She kept it when she divorced Joachim.

    3. The danish could create a trust just like the sweedish and the dutch did where to "put" the most important jewelry peaces so they can be used by all the women of the royal family, queen first, but they dont own it so in case of divorce or else the jewels stay in the family

  5. Vous avez tous raison la reine Margareth pourrait mettre d'autres diadèmes à la disposition de la princesse Héritière. En ce qui concerne le diadème de la comtesse Alexandra, le diadème est à sa disposition mais retournera a la famille royale à la mort de la comtesse.

    1. No, there is not such a thing.
      The diadem is Alexandra's, and she will do whatever she wants with it be she alive or dead.
      I think that she is likely to give it to Nikolai one day. But anyway the diadem is definately out of the danish royal family's main branch, as Joachim's children will play a minor if not a non-existent role in the future of the monarchy.

  6. You are right. I most like the ruby tiara on her. It has a great and a bit unconventional shape, like a wreath of leaves and flowers. And it looks very good in her dark brown hair. Does anybody know something about the history of that tiara? Was it made for her engagement? I think that I saw her first wearing it on the day before her wedding.

  7. The Rubytiara was made by Napolion for his at the time fiance,the engament broke and she became married to Bernadotte who later on became King of Sweden all this took place over 200 years ago. It came to Denmark whith a Swedish princess who got to be Queem of denmark because it has the Danish colors. Queen Ingrid owned it and testamented it to Crownprince Frederik for his future whife to wear.She also have the Queen Ingrids Elephantorder.
