Crown Princess Mary has stunned in an elegant blue dress during a visit to Yogyakarta Palace in Indonesia.
The 47-year-old touched down for the short tour with the United Nations on Monday, where she discussed health and marked Denmark’s 70-year diplomatic relationship with Indonesia.
The Danish royal wore a calf-length gown as she was greeted by Princess Mangkubumi as she arrived at the palace in Java on Wednesday.

Two days earlier, Crown Princess Mary donned her tried-and-tested favourite H&M dress for a World AIDS Day event in Jakarta.
She had already worn the $99 dress twice this year.
The princess first wore the silk patterned frock at the launch of Copenhagen’s Fashion Summit on May 15, before donning it again for two official engagements in August.
Crown Princess Mary was joined by Development Minister Rasmus Prehn and UN Population Fund (UNFPA) Executive Director Natalie Kanem for the Indonesian trip.

Marking World AIDS Day, the fund promotes education around safe sex for sex workers in the region, to prevent the spread of HIV.
From Jakarta, the royal travelled to Yogyakarta to celebrate the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Speaking at an event near the Borobudur Temple, Crown Princess Mary said it was her first visit to Indonesia.
‘Australians are one of the top five tourist groups to Indonesia – they’re geographically close together,’ she said.
‘And with my own background having grown up in Australia, perhaps it is expected that I would have also visited Indonesia, I actually haven’t.

‘But now I’m here. I’ve always wanted to but yes, it is my first trip and a chance to experience the great diversity of this beautiful county but now, however, as a Dane.’
Mary, who was born in Tasmania, has become a style icon in her own right since her 2004 royal wedding to Prince Frederik.
Frequently voted the ‘world’s most stylish royal’, she is known for her polished look that is never overdone.
The 47-year-old typically favours exquisitely-tailored jackets and flowing floral dresses – all of which suit her slim figure and dark hair.
