Crown Princess Mary looks chic in separates as she gets involved at science research festival 

With four of her own, Princes Mary is a natural around children.

And she showed off her maternal skills with aplomb at the opening of a science exhibition for children in Copenhagen on Thursday.

The Crown Princess, 46 – who is the patron for the Danish Science Festival – officially launched the illustrious event in her home city wearing a demure blue fitted jacket and white trousers.

During the opening of the exhibition, Miniverse, Mary met with several children between the ages of one and five – for whom the science program is designed for.

The mother-of-four paired her chic outfit with co-ordinating pearl jewellery and white stiletto heels by Gianvito Rossi.

But she wasn’t afraid to get involved with the children during one of the different fields in the exhibition, donning seal flippers and crouching down with the kids at one point to showcase what the exhibition includes.

Later on, Princess Mary was photographed running in and out of one of the exhibits with some of the children.

Miniverse – which has been designed to help children aged one to five get into science – features seven different fields.

These include ‘The Mirror Sea’, ‘The Hospital’, ‘The Farm’ and ‘The Wind’.

Open to the public on April 20, it is part of the Danish Science Festival, which happens each April and lasts for a week.

Princess Mary is patron of the Science Festival – and this is just one of many different public roles she has in Denmark.

The princess has been keeping busy in recent days, opening a hospital in Slagelse on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old royal was all smiles as she greeted crowds in the small town on Tuesday, many of whom waved Danish flags and offered her flowers.

For that occasion, she paired a beautiful blush pink skirt with a simple white blouse from local label, Elise Gug.  

This all follows a family ski trip in Verbier over the Easter break with Crown Prince Frederik and their four children.

While Easter in the Alps can be a sun-drenched affair, there was no sign of blue skies above the Swiss resort, with snow falling heavily on the Danish royals.
