The Danish royal family just stepped out in traditional Faroese dress

It's a new look for the family!

We're used to seeing the European royals looking chic and polished in pristine designer outfits. But the Danish royal family decided to step out in something a little quirkier on Sunday when they attended church on the last day of their tour of the Faroe islands wearing traditional Faroese costume. Crown Princess Mary was spotted making her way to the service in the city of Sandavagur wearing a black cape and flowing green and mauve dress featuring a lace-up bodice, floral embroidery, and a belt with carved silver clasp. She wore her glossy brunette hair loose and wavy and added a pair of sparkling stud earrings.


The 46-year-old was pictured alongside her daughters Princess Isabelle, 11, and seven-year-old Princess Josephine, who wore almost-matching outfits in electric blue. Both girls wore their hair half-up in braided buns. Mary's husband, Crown Prince Frederick, wore a buttoned jacket and waistcoat featuring floral embroidery. He also wore black trousers with buttons up the sides, traditional long over-the-knee socks and loafers.

The sons of the family, Prince Vincent and Prince Frederick, wore similar outfits in blue. Princess Isabella carried a pretty posy of flowers as they entered the church on their fourth and final day on the Faroe Islands – a group of islands hundreds of miles off the coast of Scotland, between Norway and Iceland, that are under Danish territory.


Earlier this summer the family enjoyed an idyllic-looking break on the Danish cost, which they shared some images of on Instagram. They were joined by their pet dog Grace, who they welcomed to the family earlier this month following the death of their beloved pooch Ziggy. The two photos, taken by Crown Prince Frederik, showed the family paddling in the sea together at sunset. "A beautiful summer evening at the water's edge," the caption read. The Danish royals traditionally travel to their summer residence, Grasten Palace, with their children for their holidays.
