The Denmark royals attended a New Year's banquet at Christian VII's Palace at Amalienborg, the Royal Couple's winter residence. For the event, Mary ditched her typical print dresses for a long-sleeve velvet gown in a deep red wine hue.
In addition to a crystal belt buckle at her waist, the princess accented the dress with two large brooches and a heavy necklace with an elephant pendant, which symbolizes the Order of the Elephant, Denmark's highest order.
She also wore a giant diamond tiara. We are majorly jealous.
Her husband also got totally decked out, wearing a black military uniform with fringed gold epaulets, a smattering of brooches, an Order of the Elephant necklace to match his wife's and a jaunty black hat with a gold feather in it. Oh, and a walking stick.
So you see, dear readers, sometimes royals are not just like us. That's why we love them. Check it out below.
