Rare royal outing! Princess Mary joins family in special event

Rare royal outing! Princess Mary joins family in special event

Crown Princess Mary has made a rare appearance since the coronavirus restrictions for a major event for the country. 

The Australian-born royal joined the Queen for the official opening of parliament, and takes place on the first Tuesday of October and marks the beginning of the new legislative year.

Princess Mary accompanied her husband Crown Prince Frederik to the event. 

She was joined by Queen Margrethe II's younger sister Princess Benedikte.

Members of the Danish royal family arrived outside parliament early on Tuesday for the major  opening. 

Princess Mary was photographed wearing a blush-pink pleated skrt and an Australian-owned black blazer that was made by Willow. 

To accessorise the stylish outfit, the royal donned a floral brooch and a black pillbox-style hat.

In true royal style, the Tasmanian-born royal added a touch more class to the regal look with snakeskin heels by Gianvito Rossi.

The royals did not wear masks but they also did not embrace each other. 

Queen Margrethe could be seen blowing air-kisses to her sister and daughter-in-law.

The family watched the event on, including the election of a new chairman and deputy chairman of parliament.

Denmark's parliament, known as Folketinget, is located within Christiansborg Palace on the island of Slotsholmen in Copenhagen.
