September, 2

Crown Princess Mary visits Morocco as patron of the Mary Foundation (Mary Fonden). With this visit Crown Princess Mary wants to focus on women's rights and the project of combating violence against women.

  • 3:10 pm. Visiting the city Rabat

2013 has to be the year when Mary is going international. A few months ago she was visiting Jordan to meet the some of the countries many refugees who are now living in one of their camps. September is here and she's working for women rights and combating violence with her foundation, the Mary Foundation, in Morocco. What a mouthful. It makes me so proud to have her as Crown Princess of my homeland.

At her first day Mary stayed in the city of Rabat in Morocco where she visited the overwhelming Mausoleum of Mohammed V. This specific monument is a historical building on the opposite side of Hassan Tower. The mausoleum contains the tombs of the Mocorran King and his two sons King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah. Its green tiled roof is significant because green is the colour of Islam, looking stunning with the plain white mausoleum. Hassan II was buried there following his death in 1999, 28 years after the finishing constructions in 1971. When I saw the pictures of the magnificent building I was immediately amazed by its beauty and grace. After I read a little about the mausoleum I find it even more interesting. I have something with things history, makes me fell closer to what I see, hear and touch. I'm sure Mary had the same felling when she was standing there; to see it all live.  An honor for her to be invited to see this sacred place.

Once again I'm convinced why Mary is such an inspiration to me because with her beauty and elegance she moved all attention from herself to the special building. Yes, she was in the center of it all but without actually receiving the attention that was given to her. With her printed, reused, By Malene Birger (collection 2006)maxi-skirt and black Baum und Pferdgarten cardigan she looked like a Moroccan princess. A Scandinavian princess styled like a Moroccan princess. I'm pleased to see her in the maxi-skirt again. It was worn by her back in 2006 and 2010. The cardigan has also been seen before on a visit to Australia. A casual look for her first day in Morocco. She added a pair of black ballet flats, Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses by Madonna and diamond Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen Love Bands rings.
