THE DAN­ISH ROYAL

fam­ily wisely wrapped them­selves in the tra­di­tional wool cos­tumes of the Faroe Is­lands for a visit to the ar­chi­pel­ago of rugged, vol­canic is­lands that lie be­tween Ice­land and Nor­way. Crown Princess Mary’s cos­tume fea­tured sil­ver de­tails that had been de­signed just for her, be­stowed upon her dur­ing her rst visit to the is­lands in 2005. The women’s na­tional uni­form fea­tures an apron and scarf of dark green wool em­bel­lished with a mar­guerite pat­tern, while the men’s cos­tume fea­tures a red vest em­broi­dered with leaves in dif­fer­ent shades of green. Princess Josephine and Princess Is­abella kept their heads warm with blue wool “ky­ses”.

Dur­ing their four-day visit of the Faroe Is­lands, the Dan­ish roy­als toured the is­land of Fu­gloy, where they were greeted by all 38 res­i­dents.
