Crown Princess Mary of Denmark looked stunning stepping out in Fiji this week as part of her whirlwind official tour of the South Pacific before she touches down in Sydney on Friday.
Fijian President Wiliame Katonivere welcomed the Tasmanian-born royal to his official residence in Suva on Monday, before the pair attended a reception together in her honour at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
The 51-year-old wore an elegant floral print maxi dress in neutral tones, paired with a cream cardigan and her chocolate brown locks tied back in a ponytail.
She also donned a bold statement necklace with large colourful stones, gold hoop earrings and gold cuffs on each wrist.
Mary’s historic visit with the Danish Minister for Global Climate Policy, Dan Jørgensen, is aimed at shining a light on the impacts of climate change on Pacific island nations.
On Tuesday she visited Nabavatu villagers, who have been living in disaster relief tents for two years after their homes were destroyed by a landslip when Cyclone Anna hammered the island in 2021.
The mother-of-four opted for a casual look meeting the locals, wearing a white button-up shirt, khaki wrap maxi skirt and white sneakers.
The Crown Princess said she was amazed by the “resilience” among locals who have lost everything.
“It is difficult to imagine the fear that you have experienced in this part of the world, the despair in the aftermath, the energy and strength that it takes to rebuild and unite again,” Mary said.
“Since being here in Fiji, the whole delegation has felt an extreme resilience, a strong belief system, a power of human spirit and a sense of community to look after each other, to be there for each other.”
The Hobart-born princess will touch down in Sydney on Friday to kick off her first official Australian engagement in more than a decade.
Her trip Down Under is set to be brief however, as she is due in London next Saturday to attend King Charles III’s coronation.
