Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is the epitome of chic at the Global Fashion Summit in Copenhagen

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark was the epitome of chic as she gave the welcome address at the Global Fashion Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark on Tuesday.

The Australian-born Royal, 50, accentuated her trim figure in a white blouse tucked into a pleated floral skirt with blue and red accents, as she took to the stage at the Royal Opera House.

Princess Mary added pastel blue heels and a tan Prada handbag, as well as touches of bling in the form of pearl stud earrings and her sparkling wedding rings.

She styled her brunette braids out and opted for elegant makeup that accentuated her striking facial features.

On their website, the Global Fashion Summit is described as the ‘leading international forum for sustainability in fashion’.

Launched in 2009, the event is ‘renowned for discussions on the most critical, environmental, ethical and social issues’.

Just a day prior, Princess Mary swapped her heels for trainers as she took part in the Royal Run in Kolding, Denmark.

She looked incredibly fit in slim-fitting activewear as she ran one mile [1.6 kilometres] and mingled with the crowd.

On the event’s official website, it states that you don’t have to be a ‘Crown Princess or a beginner’ to take part in the community event, with all fitness levels welcome.

Princess Mary famously met her husband, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, by chance at Sydney pub the Slip Inn during the 2000 Olympics.

After their encounter, Frederik – who was in Australia to support Denmark’s Olympic sailing team – asked Mary for her phone number and a romance blossomed.

‘The first time we met we shook hands. I didn’t know he was the Prince of Denmark. Half an hour later someone came up to me and said, “Do you know who these people are?”‘ Mary revealed in an interview about meeting the heir to the Danish throne.

They maintained a long-distance relationship for a year, with Frederik making secret trips Down Under before Mary moved to Denmark to study Danish language at Copenhagen’s Studieskolen in 2001.

In early 2003, Frederik’s mother Queen Margrethe publicly acknowledged the relationship and the couple announced their engagement at Amalienborg Castle later that year on October 8.

Frederik and Mary married on May 14, 2004 at Copenhagen Cathedral, with the newly minted Crown Princess opting for a beautiful gown by Danish designer Uffer Frank and a veil first used by Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden in 1905.

Their first child, Prince Christian Valdemar Henri John, was born October 15, 2005; Princess Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe followed on April 21, 2007.

Almost four years later Mary and Frederik welcomed twins, Princess Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda and Prince Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen on January 8, 2011.
