All week long, the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark have been in India for an official diplomatic visit. Today, we’ve got a look at the jewels that Mary wore for the official program.
The royal couple’s visit began in Agra on Sunday. The first event of the visit was a spectacular one: a visit to the Taj Mahal. The couple posed together for pictures in front of the famous monument before heading to another Mughal site, the Agra Fort.
Crown Princess Mary wore hoop earrings, layered gold necklaces, and several gold bracelets, including one studded with colorful gemstones.
On Monday, the couple traveled to New Delhi, where they had meetings with government officials and participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi.
This year is a particularly special one for remembering Gandhi’s legacy, as the world marks the 75th anniversary of his death.
Frederik and Mary also scattered rose petals at the memorial.
Mary wore a floral dress for the daytime engagements on Monday’s program. She accessorized with earrings from Marianne Dulong. They feature diamond studs and large blue gemstone drops.
On Monday evening, the couple were the guests of honor at a special dinner celebrating the diplomatic relationship between the two nations. Crown Princess Mary wore a terracotta-colored evening gown that we previously saw her wear during her visit to Norway in June 2022.
This time around, Mary accessorized with a pair of Portuguese gold filigree earrings that she’s worn on numerous occasions. She also wore gold bracelets and (I believe) an ornament in her hair.
On Tuesday, the official visit continued in New Delhi as the royal couple attended the opening session of a conference on sustainable cooperation between businesses headquartered in the two countries.
Crown Princess Mary also visited the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on Tuesday. She undertook the visit in her role as patron of the Maternity Foundation.
For Tuesday’s daytime events, Mary wore slender diamond hoop earrings with a pair of necklaces. The smaller necklace features a diamond charm in the shape of the letter F (for Frederik, naturally).
She also wore a long sautoir-style necklace in silver tones with various stones and beads.
On Wednesday, the final day of the visit, the crown princely couple undertook engagements in Chennai (the city formerly known as Madras). Business, technology, and industry were the focus points of the day’s program. Above, Crown Princess Mary visits the main Indian office of Grundfos, the Danish water pump manufacturer.
Mary wore a brown trouser suit for the day’s engagements, accessorized with gold and diamond jewelry. Her earrings again featured gold filigree designs. She layered her necklace with the “F” charm (for Frederik) with another necklace. That second piece features a pendant engraved with the initials of the couple’s four children, Christian, Isabella, Vincent, and Josephine.
She also wore a gold bracelet on her right wrist, plus an oval-shaped gold and diamond ring on her right hand. (Her engagement and wedding rings were on her left.)
For the final event of the visit, a dinner in Chennai, Mary wore a lovely gray dress with sparkling embellishments.
Mary wore diamonds and aquamarines, including the diamond and aquamarine drop earrings that are thought to have been part of her engagement present from Crown Prince Frederik back in 2003. She also wore the same family initial necklaces, plus several diamond and gold bracelets and a large aquamarine cocktail ring.
Seriously, the ring is impressive! A lovely way to wrap up a royal visit, don’t you agree?
