The concluding activity for the Danish royals in the HC Andersen festive weekend was a reception at the Copenhagen town hall.
Mary wore a new shirt jacket by Malene Birger ...
.... and new Prada pumps.
Other royal guests were princess Benedikte, prince Joachim and his wife princess Alexandra (they were to be divorced a few days later), prince Constantijn of the Netherlands and his wife princess Laurentien who was a HC Andersen ambassador herself.
Crown princess Mary handed out diplomas to the youngest HC Andersen ambassadors. Among them was the girl she and Frederik had met at a story telling contest in New York a few months earlier. (see post http://maryfromthestart.blogspot.be/2014/01/visit-to-new-york-day-three.html)
Mary was expecting Christian. The news hadn't been made public yet.
