Wednesday, November 5th
From November 2-5th is Crown Princess Mary accompanied by Minister of Trade and Development Mogens Jensen on an official visit to South Africa. The visit focuses on maternal and sexual health and rights.
- 8:15 am. Crown Princess Mary attended a meeting with the United Nations Population Fund.
- 10:00 am. Crown Princess Mary visited the Vodacom Gender Based Violence Command Centre.
- 2:30 pm. The Crown Princess visited the Thuthuzela Clinic.
At the last day in South Africa, Johannesburg, the Crown Princess attended a meeting with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) as the first thing in the morning. A couple of hours later, she and Minster of Trade and Development Mogens Jensen payed a visit to the Vodocom Gender Based Violence Command Centre. Both were kindly welcomed to the centre. Here they were given a guided tour around the center facilities, to see what the place has to offer. Their guide also told about how the centre has been able to help others. Stories were told and experiences were shared. As the last event on her official visit to South Africa was a visit at the Thuthuzela Clinic. Though Mary was guest of honor during the last day before leaving Johannesburg, she was very humble and only asked when it had something to do with what she was told or shown. It is clear obvious that Mary was truly touched by the many stories people shared with her. Impression's I am sure will stay in her mind for quite a while and be present again when she is back in Denmark, during her work.
Do not think we have ever seen Mary wear any inappropriate outfit, nor did she the last day in South Africa. She was wearing her floral Dolce & Gabbana skirt, a white Hugo Boss blouse and beige patent leather pumps from Jimmy Choo. The multicoloured earrings are a Marianne Dulong design, as the golden necklace is from Orit Elhanati. Mary then wore a golden leaf ring from I'm Jewel. Feminine, aesthetic and polished.
It was been a please to share these posts from her stay in both Cape Town and Johannesburg. Just makes me so proud having a Crown Princess like Mary who have dedicated her work to help those who need it most.
