Visit to Schleswig-Holstein: day one, Hamburg

17 February 2006

Crown prince Frederik & crown princess Mary of Denmark made an official 2 day visit to the German region Schleswig-Holstein, on the border with Denmark. On this general Danish promo trip they were accompanied by Mary's lady-in-waiting Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen and chief of court, Per Thornit.

The first day was spent in Hamburg.

Frederik arrived an hour before Mary at the Guesthouse of the Hamburg Senate, where the Danish couple staid during their visit. He'd come straight from the winter olympics in  Turin, Italy.

Mary on the otherhand flew from Copenhagen with Chrsitian, Mette Hansen & Søren Hedegaard. Mary was still breastfeeding 4 month old Christian.

At her arrival she wore a new astrakan coat by Prada.

The first activity for the couple was a visit to the Kunsthalle museum.

Mary wore a new  "Seasons" ring by Cenius & Bach. It consists of 4 stacked rings, one for each season. 

She also wore a new skirt by Malene Birger. A month earlier her friend Ellen Hillingsø was seen wearing the same skirt at Christian's christening.

Afterwards crown princess Mary visited the Klosterschule.


At night Frederik & Mary took part as guests of honour in the Matthiae Mahlzeit at the Hamburg city hall, the oldest banquet in the world. It's been celebrated since 1356.

Gifts were: a vase in Fürstenberg porcelain for Mary and a Mont Blanc fontain pen for Frederik.

Mary wore a new silver "Moonlight Grape" set by Georg Jensen: earrings (shop value: 390,00 euro) and a necklace (shop value: 1.350,00 euro).

She also wore a new amethyst and diamond ring.
