Crown Princess Mary of Denmark brought a touch of royal sparkle as she opened Viborg Regional Hospital's new Emergency Centre on Monday. The 47-year-old looked elegant in a purple long-sleeve blouse with a grey wool A-line skirt and a matching belted coat, as she was given a tour of the building.


Regionshospitalet Viborgs nye akutafdeling med skadestue, lægevagt og traumestuer, sengeafsnit, operationsstuer og skopirum blev i dag indviet af H.K.H. Kronprinsessen. Hendes Kongelige Højhed forestod den officielle indvielse af akutcenteret ved symbolsk at klippe et rødt bånd, der var opsat i den nye forhal. Efterfølgende fik Kronprinsessen en rundvisning i de nye rammer. Her overværende Kronprinsessen blandt andet en øvelse, hvor en figurant spillede en patient, der havde været ude for en ulykke. Patienten ankom til behandling i akutcentret, hvor et traumeteam tog imod og begyndte behandlingen, mens Kronprinsessen så på. Det nye akutcenter på Regionshospitalet Viborg er største delprojekt i det omfattende kvalitetsfondsbyggeri til i alt 1,16 milliarder kroner. Akutcenteret rummer blandt andet ny akutafdeling. Her vil alle akutte patienter fremover få en behandlingsplan inden for fire timer; uanset om de kommer selv, med ambulance eller på sigt lander på hospitalets tag i lægehelikopter.

Mary isn't the only royal to have rocked a headband – the Duchess of Cambridge was an early adopter of the accessory trend, after donning a cream applique creation by Jane Taylor for Prince Louis' christening in July 2018. Since then Kate has added numerous styles to her collection, including a rhinestone padded headband from high street favourite Zara, which she wore to the Festival of Remembrance.

Earlier this month Mary carried out a three-day tour of Indonesia, where the focus was on sexual and reproductive health and rights in the country. During her visit, the Australia-born royal stepped out in a £525 geo floral shirt dress by one of Kate's favourite British fashion labels, Beulah London.
