Crown Princess Mary, 46, arrived in Finland today chanelling Kate Middleton by looking stunning in a cream suit.

The brunette channelled the Duchess of Cambridge in a colour favoured by the British Royal.

She also wore a favourite gem of Kate’s, pearls.

Mary wore pair of beige wide legged trousers, which fit the royal perfectly.

She added a jacket in a similar hue, which she wore casually undone.

Her white top had a high neckline and shell pleats, creating a very flattering effect.

She added suede nude heels with a pointed two and a leather beige bag.

Her engagement and wedding rings glittered on her ring finger and huge pearls hung from her ears.

The Danish princess was invited to a welcoming ceremony in the city hall in Helsinki, Finland.

She is currently making a two day visit to the Northern country.

Princess Mary looked chic and elegant stepping out of a black SUV car.

She later crouched down to meet a group of adorable children wearing red crowns with little white flowers.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark looked stunning today in traditional garb on a trip in August.

She visited Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands with her family.

Who is Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

The Australian royal met her husband to be in a pub and had no idea who he was.

Head designer for Chanel Karl Lagerfeld called Princess Mary and Kate Middleton the women “royal sisters”. 

Both women are famous for their royal love stories, both coming from ‘commoner’ backgrounds to marry into royalty.

It is well known Kate Middleton met Prince William at the University of St Andrews, where they were both studying. However, Mary met her royal husband Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark in different circumstances.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.


Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.


Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.

Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
