The Matching M's of Denmark

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark gives the opening address at the IDAHO Forum in Copenhagen 

It's usually Denmark's two princesses with matching names who are compared when it comes to clothes, but this week it was Margrethe and Mary playing snap. The Queen of Denmark and the country's Crown Princess stepped out in dresses that might easily get mixed up if these royals were getting ready in a hurry.

Queen Margrethe headed off to one of her palaces today to see the completed restoration work in Christian V's Audience Room at Frederiksborg and to officially reopen the area. She also toured an exhibition which will show how the king who ruled Denmark from 1670 until 1699 used the room. Margrethe was in a navy dress with cap sleeves and mid length skirt and that choice felt rather familiar given her Royal Family's appearances in recent days.

For she chose an outfit rather like that of her daughter-in-law, seen the day before. Mary made the opening address of the IDAHO conference in Copenhagen on May 10th. This three day event focuses on gender equality and the rights of LGBTI people and will see 200 delegates from 25 countries taking part in debates and discussions.

Mary chose a navy shift dress with cap sleeves and a slight flare at the skirt. OK, it was missing the white trim of her mother in law's outfit and the skirt moved just a little bit more but otherwise it was hard to tell them apart. Royal snap comes in many versions and this week it's the turn of the matching M's of Denmark.
