In honor of HRH the Crown Princess of Denmark’s 45th birthday, we celebrate Princess Mary’s impeccable style and grace. Princess Mary has not always been a royal figure, but even with close observance, you would never know otherwise. Her life experience and age combine to produce a beautifully mature and elegant woman, fitting to one day be queen.
HRH was born in Australia, and while she had spent the better part of her youth there, she became acquainted with the world through travel in her early adulthood.
But it was in Australia during the 2000 Summer Olympics that Mary met her future husband, the Crown Prince Frederik.
As she was in her early 30’s when she married, she had the opportunity to spend quite some time in the professional world. This time to develop a personal sense of style has surely contributed to her classic and elegant style.
Since becoming a royal princess, Mary has been involved in many causes. Perhaps most notable, however, is the foundation she has created to combat bullying, loneliness, and domestic violence. Formally named “The Mary Foundation”, this pursuit will create a legacy of intentional service to promoting well-being. Read more about her foundation here.
Always the epitome of grace and poise, we perpetually look forward to her public appearances. Mary also is a brilliant example of balancing a very public life with raising a family and preparing them for a life of public service to the Danish people.
Princess Mary and her husband have 4 children. Their most recent family picture is one of our all-time favorite family photos.
Here's to 45 years of historic and iconic style, and many more to come!

Gemstones. While every princess has access to beautiful jewelry and tiaras, Princess Mary proudly wears the Danish ruby parure over and again. She is able to balance the weight of the parure with an equally heavy fabric dress, whether a deep red velvet number or an ivory gown. Draw some inspiration from HRH and own those peridot or sapphire earrings hiding in your jewelry collection!
Winter wear. Mindful that many of her outings take place in Denmark, a warmer outfit consisting of pillbox hats, coat dresses, and gloves are not only fashionable, but also necessary.
