Crown Princess Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik invited the Advisory Board of the Global Green Growth Forum for the dinner on Tuesday, welcoming them into the living room at the home they share with their four children.

The couple's living room and the Cambridge's share similar décor details

Gilt detailing and gold framed pieces of artwork are prominent in both living rooms, as are tapestry rugs and beautiful plants or flowers. But while William and Kate have placed a number of lamps around the room, a magnificent chandelier serves as the main source of lighting and focal point of Frederik and Mary's lounge.
