Princess Mary attends gala dinner at Fredensborg Palace

Princess Mary of Denmark showed she’s absolutely unafraid to ‘shop her wardrobe’ as she stepped out in style at an officer’s gala dinner held this week.

The Australian-born royal, 45, looked simply stunning in a floor-length one shouldered fuchsia gown by Danish designer David Anderson.

The silk dress was worn cinched at the waist by a wide magenta-coloured band, and accessorised to dramatic effect with a large diamond encrusted brooch from the Danish Ruby Parure.

The elegant princess also also wore the ruby bracelet and ruby drop earrings from the set.

The dramatic ensemble was perfectly paired with a simple bright pink clutch, and teamed with neutral pumps which gave the look a degree of understated elegance.

The gala event is hosted each year by Queen Margrethe at Frendensborg Palace is a tradition which honours the officers of Denmark’s armed services.

The mother-of-four attended the event solo as her husband, Crown Prince Frederick, has been on an official visit to China.

While Princess Mary is always sartorially spot on, it’s not an endless stream of designer gowns which give her an enviable sense of style.

Moreso, it appears to be her ability choose an outfit which has timeless appeal and can be re-worn to an event without looking in the slightest bit dated.

This on-point ensemble is a case in point as it made its first debut at the royal wedding of Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock in Monaco in 2011.

Her attendance at the event comes after she arrived at the Opera House in Copehagen for Business Summit.

The royal looked chic as always in a pastel blue dress with a pleated hem that fell just below the knee.

She kept off the autumnal chill in an elegant double cashmere coat by Joseph and accessoried with a nude Prada handbag and a pair of Gianvito Rossi python heels.

The Crown Princess was ferried to the Opera House by water taxi for her appearance at the annual Industry Business summit where she gave a speech to delegates.
