After a relaxing Christmas break and a host of New Year celebrations, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has wasted no time getting back to her official royal duties.

The effortlessly elegant royal donned one of her favourite Sixties-inspired dresses for the occasion – a tailored tweed number thought to be from Prada.

True to her sartorial style, Mary kept it minimal with her accessories and  accessorised the form-fitting frock with a pair of diamond earrings and a pair of beige pumps.

Soon after her arrival in Strasbourg, Mary participated in a number of meetings before addressing the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly, which is under Danish presidency until May 2018.

The visit was one close to the royal’s heart, with gathering focusing heavily on supporting work on the protection of human rights, gender equality and democracy.  

‘Human rights are the basic rights and freedom that belong to every person in the world from birth until death,’ Princess Mary said in her address. 

‘They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life.

‘As a nation we have seen first hand that gender equality is a prerequisite for economic growth, welfare, social cohesion and the freedom and opportunities of the individual. 

‘And although much has been achieved, we also recognise that we have much to achieve. 

‘Violence against women is one of the strongest manifestations of gender inequality and is one of the areas which the Council of Europe has raised the bar.’

Princess Mary has worked tirelessly to prove her commitment to human rights – from fighting for women’s equality on the world stage to working with the World Health Organisation and United Nations.

She has been a near constant presence in Denmark and abroad as she carries out royal duties and  serves as patron for some 25 international organisations.

These include the World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe and the United Nations Population Fund, where she supports their work to promote maternal health in more than 150 developing nations.
