Touching subtle detail in new Princess Mary photo

Fans have spotted a touching in detail in a photo that emerged of Denmark's Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik as they attended a wedding.

The pair joined Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Carina Axelsson to witness their nuptials on June 4 at the Evangelical Church of Bad Berleburg Castle in Germany, but Princess Mary stole the show with one part of her outfit.

The Australian-born royal was dressed in a stunning Erdem Agnes floral print gown accessorised with the diamond and pearl tiara she wore to her own wedding to Prince Frederik in 2004.

Popular Instagram account @royalfashionpolice noticed the subtle outfit detail, posting photos from afar of Princess Mary attending the wedding alongside her husband.

HELLO magazine reports the tiara was a gift from her in-laws, Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik of Denmark, with the dazzling headpiece made up of a diamond heart and fleur-de-lis motifs.


Princess Mary is also known for recycling outfits from past events, and the wedding was no exception with her last spotted in the Erdem Agnes dress during a gala in Copenhagen in 2019.

She had also previously donned the gown in 2017 during a joint 80th birthday celebration for Norway's King Harald and Queen Sonja.

Princess Mary's thrifty outfits

The royal has recycled a number of her gowns for auspicious events, with her also seen re-wearing a blue Valentino dress during a royal affair earlier this year.

The Danish princess donned the long cape gown with lacy sleeves while attending an event at Amalienborg Palace.

While she wowed onlookers with her outfit, many would not have noticed it was a gown recycled from a Royal visit to Japan in 2019.

Three years ago, the Australian-born royal wore the powder blue dress and decided to elevate the look for this year's affair as she further shows her commitment to wearing sustainable fashion.

She subtly altered the old dress to include the delicate lacy sleeves and paired it with diamond earrings and Manolo Blahnik heels.

Princess Mary has also recycled a dress from the late Australian designer Carla Zampatti.

In 2015 she was snapped in an official royal portrait wearing the design for the third time.

Princess Mary initially sported the dusty pink boat-neck dress in 2013 for a Women's Weekly photo shoot, then again to a state dinner the following year.

Some of Princess Mary's outfit choices date back 10 years, and she has been vocal about her dedication to sustainable fashion.

At the launch of the 2021 Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the royal said we must take responsibility for what we buy and use and the impact of it on future generations.
