Crown Princess Mary puts on a dazzling display at Princess Benedikte's 75th birthday bash

The Danish royal continues to nail it in the style stakes.

While the world waits with baited breath for Duchess Meghan to give birth, across the seas in Denmark, one of our other favourite royals has stopped us in our tracks.
In honour of Princess Benedikte's 75th birthday, the Danish royal family have stepped out to celebrate in their best royal frocks and reigning style queen Crown Princess Mary has once again stolen the show.
Dressed in a navy blue one-shouldered gown by Danish designer Lasse Spangenberg, Crown Princess Mary arrived at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen on the arm of her husband Crown Prince Frederik.
While their four children were absent, the royal couple looked like a colour-coordinated dream as they waved to the crowds before entering the palace along with other members of the family.

The 46-year-old mother-of-four also showed off her toned physique in her gown as she waved to photographers.
The Danish princess reportedly stays fit by running, horse riding, Pilates, yoga and swimming so it's no wonder that she looks so good!
Princess Mary is certainly a fan of the one-shouldered style. The Crown Princess wore a similar gown to Prince Charles' 70th birthday celebrations in November last year and resembled a Grecian goddess when she wore a white one-shouldered dress at an event in Copenhagen back in 2017.

The Crown Prince and Princess weren't the only notable guests at the birthday celebrations.
Guest of honour Princess Benedikte arrived in a carriage drawn by white horses and posed for photographs with her older sister Queen Margrethe, who hosted the soiree. As a senior member of the Danish royal family, the princess is patron of 31 Danish and five foreign organisations.
This isn't her only birthday celebration however, as an exhibition featuring a selection of the princess's personal items, including jewellery and clothes, opened this week at Koldinghus Castle.

Other dignitaries in attendance included Princess Benedikte's daughters Princess Nathalie and Princess Alexandra of Sayn Wittengenstein-Berlebourg, Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille as well as the Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen and his wife and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece.
And though none of the British royals were there, the two nations have a close bond.
Mary and Frederik invited Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla to visit Denmark as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour of Scandinavia in 2012 and have also hosted Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
Hopefully we will see them together again soon!
