The Crown Princess of Denmark attended the annual Christmas Label presentation today at Copenhagen town hall.

Mary, 47, who is a patron of the Christmas Label Fund, made a stylish appearance in a silky navy skirt paired with a flattering floral blouse. 

The Danish Christmas brand is sold every year by the Christmas Label Fund, and the proceeds fund five children’s homes, helping 1,000 people.

Crown Princess Mary who has taken part in the presentations for several years, appeared in good spirits as she met with those involved in the scheme.

The mother-of-four wore her hair straight with slightly wavy ends, combined with minimal make-up for a carefree look.

The Julemaerkefonden charity receives the funds from the Christmas Label each year with proceeds going to the funds of five Christmas label homes. 

The homes receive less than 4 per cent from public grants and are almost entirely reliant on the donations of private individuals.

They are private day care institutions that are viewed and treated as temporary homes.

Over 1,000 children aged between seven and 14 benefit from the funds and receive help to fight loneliness, bullying, social isolation and obesity.

The Christmas Label was initially founded by postal clerk Einar Holbøll in 1904, as a way of meeting the wellbeing needs of children in Denmark.

This year’s Christmas Seal for the Christmas Label was designed by Danish illustrator Per O. Jørgensen. 

The Christmas Seal is a specially-commissioned stamp sold throughout Denmark alongside other seasonally themed stamps. 

Crown Princess Mary seemed engaged in deep conversation with one child who eagerly took the opportunity to meet her at the presentation.

As on other occasions, she gave a speech about the work of the Christmas brand homes, visited a Christmas home and spoke to educators.  

The mother-of-four who was born in Hobart, Tasmania, has had a busy month since returning from Morocco where she participated in a marathon.

She also recently stepped out in regal attire for the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito in Japan, alongside her husband Crown Prince Frederik, 51.

Mary is set to become queen of Denmark when Frederik ascends to the throne, following the death or abdication of his mother.
