Hobart-born Mary looked every inch the royal in an amaranth-coloured gown for the event, but it was Princess Isabella in a borrowed Max Mara blazer and brooch belonging to the late Queen that held the attention of her peers.
Even her youngest sister Josephine got involved in the clothes swapping fun by wearing a pink dress once wornby Isabella. The men of the family kept things classy and simple in statement blue suits.

The teenage Princess is currently third in line to the Danish throne after her father and elder brother Christian.
According to the Danish Royal family’s official Instagram account ‘Isabella was confirmed today by royal confessor, bishop Henrik Wigh-Poulson.
‘Over the past 100 years, Fredensborg Castle Church has been used for several Ecclesiastes for members of the royal family.
‘Especially, the church has formed the framework for royal confirmations. Thus it was also in this church that both Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Crown Prince were confirmed in 1955 and 1981 respectively and most recently His Royal Highness Prince Christian in 2021.’
