Queen Mary’s best fashion moments of 2024

Her style has evolved as she’s gone from princess to queen…

Queen Mary of Denmark’s life is like something straight out of a fairytale.

The 52-year-old grew up in Tasmania, Australia and in her 20s, began working in marketing and advertising.

Then, during a chance encounter at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, Mary met Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark.

The royal was instantly besotted with Mary; and so, the two started dating and became engaged in 2003.

Following their engagement, Mary and Frederik tied the knot on May 14, 2004, and she became the Crown Princess of Denmark.

Flashforward to 2024, and Mary and Fredrik share four beautiful children – Crown Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine.

Not only this, but following Queen Margrethe’s abdication, Mary and Frederik were crowned as King and Queen of Denmark in early January.

Now, ever since Mary was catapulted to fame in the early 2000s, she’s always been incredibly fashionable.

But her style has gracefully evolved as she’s gone from normal Aussie girl to princess.

Therefore, we can’t wait to see how Mary’s style evolves now that she’s queen… But so far, so good!

Need further proof? We’ve rounded up Queen Mary of Denmark’s best fashion moments of 2024.

01

Queen Mary looked incredibly smart in a cobalt blue suit by London-based label The Fold and matching cobalt blue Jimmy Choo heels as she attended the Specialists’ 20th anniversary at the National Museum in Copenhagen on April 9.

This marked the fourth time Mary’s worn an outfit comprising of only blue-hued garments and accessories since she became the Queen of Denmark in January, so she’s obviously a fan of all-blue ensembles this year…

To mark the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Home Guard in Churchillparken, Mary gave a moving speech to the miltary personnel present. She also paid tribute to a soldier who tragically died the night before the event while on duty.

“For 75 years, the Home Guard has created security and safety for the Danes. It is a day we want to celebrate, but before I go any further, I would also like to express my deepest sympathies to those bereaved by last night’s tragic death,” Mary said before encouraging the crowd to take part in a moment’s silence.

The Queen of Denmark then presented service awards to several soldiers.

For the occasion, Mary opted for a sophisticated all-navy ensemble consisting of a long navy coat, navy leather gloves and a navy fedora-style hat.

King Frederik and Queen Mary held the first State Council Dinner of their reign on March 19. For the occasion, Mary paired an elegant silver sequin skirt from By Malene Birger with a black, satin off-the-shoulder top – the exact outfit she wore to the Creative Nation gala dinner in 2007. We love sustainable fashion!
