Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has released an elegant new portrait to mark her 49th birthday. The royal looked beautiful in a polka dot blouse as she celebrated the special occasion, a statement garment that wouldn't look out of place in Duchess Catherine's wardrobe.

Princess Mary is seen smiling at the camera, wearing her brunette hair pulled back in a ponytail and her dewy makeup look accentuated with a slick of berry lipstick.

The caption read: "Today is Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess' 49th birthday. The Crown Princess celebrates the day with her family in Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg."

Mary's pretty blouse was reminiscent of one of Duchess Catherine's favourite looks, the humble polka dot. From her Alessandra Rich dresses to her memorable Equipment shirt, Kate loves to make a statement in the vibrant print.

And guess what? Kate's polka dot blouse she wore to visit Evelina London’s Sunshine House in Peckham, south London in 2019 is still in stock in all sizes.

Kate Middleton is also a fan of a polka dot shirt 

Priced at £230, it's not cheap, but if you're keen to copy Kate and Mary's classic style, it's a total winner.

Meanwhile, Mary – who is married to Crown Prince Frederik – is known as a style icon in her own right with a sustainable approach to fashion, often recycling her outfits.

To mark her birthday, Danish royal photographer Chris Christophersen spoke to about working with Princess Mary.

He said: "The Crown Princess is a woman who from the beginning has melted into the hearts of all the Danes. She is very natural and always smiling, which always [results in] good pictures of her."
