Here’s a quick post on Crown Princess Mary in Rio over the last several days. She accompanied Crown Prince Frederik, IOC member, to some pre-Games events throughout the week and to the Opening Ceremony on August 5.
Mary and Frederik attended the Opening Ceremony to cheer on the Danish delegation as they entered the stadium. Mary and I are total iPhone twins, BTW. Except I have a cover on mine since I drop my phone so much.
Did you watch the Opening Ceremony? What were your thoughts? I thought the Flame with the mirrored “chandelier” behind it was very beautiful and I want one in my home.
I also thought it was interesting that they chose to highlight climate change in the Opening Ceremony and I love that they’re doing an athletes’ forest as a way to have a lasting legacy from the Games.
On August 4, Mary and Frederik attended the President’s Dinner at the Windsor convention center in Rio. They posed with IOC President Thomas Bach and his wife.
Mary wore a dress from Hugo Boss which she’s had since 2009 and has worn 5 times now, and Gianvito Rossi pumps. It’s fine; not spectacular. I don’t like turtlenecks.
Previously in the day on August 4, Mary and Frederik visited the Danish and Australian team villages to met with the athletes. Mary met with the Danish riding team, which is fitting since she herself loves to ride.
On August 3, in the evening, Mary and Frederik attended a gala dinner on board the training ship Denmark.
Mary wore a maxi skirt by Etro with a white blouse and cardigan. I’m not usually a huge fan of the paisley maxi skirt thing, but I think Mary looks really nice here.
