I read that Crownprincess Mary gave a speech. Last year - when she gave that speech - the critic started, that her Danish is very bad.
Is it better now?
Has anybody heard the speech (this year)?

Some Danish members on another board have said that her Danish was quite good, but her accent makes it hard to understand some words

Thanks for the information.
I think, they said the same last year.

Wasn't this an evening event? It looks a little light out still in the pic of them arriving but if it was an evening event I have to say I'm not loving her hair. The dress is interesting, not sure I'm liking the neckline part and the way it's lined. But it just seems that the overall appearance is not consistent for Mary. The hair looks a little to daytime, in my possibly very odd opinion! The style of the hair just doesn't match with the overall look I think she might have been going for.

However, I must say it is nice to see them back in Denmark! Just a different vibe.

She lost the pearl off her right earring I actually like the dress, it's something I could also wear minus maybe some of the flower patches on the mid-body part for me. The ones at the bottom are very nice. I love the shoes too

No, she didn't lose the pearl on the right. The gold butterfly is larger on that side than the one on the left where the pearl is hanging from.

Not one of my favorite looks in terms of jewelry from Marianne Dulong but perhaps Marianne is trying to start a new trend?

Yes, it was an evening event - held at the new opera

Thanks all for the lovely pictures. Mary shinned this evening. What a beautiful choice of dress. Some funny pictures were taken at this event. anyone knows what was so funny? many pictures showed Mary & Fred giggling/laughing.

Madeleine Glindorf has some lovely pictures from the event so does stef.projectjj.com

Danish royal watchers have articles, pictures & links to the crown prince & crown princess's speeches but in Danish

So there was never a pearl on the right (wearer) earring? It just looks strange with only one pearl.....

Enjoy,
Madeleine
Did anybody notice that the lady who won the award, her dress (the vest part) looks like Mary's dress? Maybe I am imagining things but the material is very similar and so are the flowers on the dress.

Hi Saphire,

I noticed it too, especially after watching a video clip on one of the Danish sites (dr1, I think) but after looking closely at Madeleine's photo, especially pic13, you'll see that the flower applique is different on both dresses. It is uncanny though that Princess Mary's dress and Sonia's vest had the same floral applique on their outfits but perhaps this is a trend in Denmark.

I don't care for this type of an earring. It looks as if they're two different ones. I loved Mary's dress though. She looked great!

Mary looks fab and I like the dress, however, I think it had looked better with simple pumps and nude stockings - she shoes have some applications so it's a bit too much. This whole earring stuff is weird - it looks wrong, fashion trend or not

dress is beautiful and I love the colours of the flowers of her bouquet and her shoes and the fact that she very often does not wear stockings.
Mathilde of Belgium wears stockings even with sandals and they make her look like an old lady instead of a young woman in the prime of her life

Hmmm ... for the stockings, if stockings, only with closed shoes. I hate stockings worn with open toe shoes or sandals
In Mary's case, it's fine as she does but I thought as the dress has applications and the shoes have applications I thought it had looked nicer with simple (closed) pumps (and stockings). Just my opinion.

It looks like she lost the pearl but has Mary is a really perfectionist I think that is fashion and the earing is just like that!!!

I have to agree I do not like this style of earrings! I think that it looks weird also.

I love the earrings. Even though they are not symmetrical, the butterfly on the side without the pearl is larger so there is still a "balance". It's certainly not a boring look, nor is it for the unadventurous. Lucky for us Mary is neither of those things.
