Day 1: International Conference on Population and Development, New York

Saturday, September 27th

Crown Princess Mary participates in activities related to the UN's General Assembly Special Session on International Conference on Population and Development - ICPD in New York. She will stay in New York for three days, from September 27 to 29.

  • 8:45 am. The Crown Princess attended the Global Leaders' meeting on Achieving Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. 
  • 11:20 am. Visiting the North Nordic Food Festival during what's called Denmark Day the Crown Princess met Claus Meyer, a Danish cook.
  • 13:30 pm. Crown Princess Mary attended the #Generation2030: Torchbearers for SDB's, focusing on young people's role in the implementation of the new world goal. Here she held the opening speech.
  • 5:00 pm. The Crown Princess attended the event Mobile Innovations for Maternal Health invented by the Danish organization Maternal Foundation. She held the opening speech. 

A little before 9 a clock the Danish Prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Mary took part in a short meeting. Afterwards she went on the the next meeting with the Global Leaders' on Achieving Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. These two are only a few meetings Mary will attend  within the next three days of conference in New York. Mary is present because of her commitment to improve women's and girls' rights and gender equality including the fact of her membership of the High Level Task Force for the International Conference on Population and Development. The meeting is based on the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Program of Action of the Fourth World Congress on Women in 1995, which aims to get leaders to reaffirm the countries' political commitment and determination to achieve the objectives of women's and girls' rights. In a rather new interview with Crown Prince Frederik in the latest issue of Billed-Bladet where he also talked about Mary and her work with women's and girls' rights. Here I noticed one thing he said: his wife is demand in the higher circles of the UN-system. Her impressive achieved results are seen by members of global organizations who want her attention to their projects. He also mentions another thing that Mary, long time before he met her, she was just like this. Dedicated to helping others in the exact same way as she is doing today with her title as Crown Princess which might have helped to achieved her goals. After her presence at the Global Leaders' meeting, it all became a bit less seriously because she attend the North Nordic Food Festival on the Denmark Day where she met the famous Danish chef Claus Mayer. He is about to open his own Nordic Food Hall at Grand Central Terminal in New York in 2016.

I noticed both Queen Máxima of Netherlands and Prince Albert of Monaco attending meetings as well.

Beautifully Mary was dressed in her paisley skirt from JOSEPH with a white silk crepe blouse as we saw when she handed over the best CSR Reporting 2015 on September 7th a few weeks ago. I suggested that her blouse might be from Baum und Pferdgarten, I asked them and they told me that  Baum und Pferdgarten isn't the designer of the blouse. So we still need to find out where it's from. Let the search begin! She accessorized her first-day-outfit with a creamy wool scarf identified by Else-Marie (thank you so much!) as C More than Cashmere, jewellery from Marianne Dulong, a new Naledi Copenhagen clutch and her Gianvito Rossi pumps. At the arrival she wore her Prada handbag. The new Naledi Copenhagen clutch had space to her little notebook and pencil. The golden diamond bracelet on her left arm I still do not know the designer of. Sophisticated and a lovely look to represent Denmark in New York.

Afterwards she attend the #Generation2030: Torchbearers for SDB's and then the event Mobile Innovations for Maternal Health created by a Danish organization Maternal Foundation. The event talks about the use of mobile technology to save mothers' and infants' lives in developing countries. They have developed an app called The Safe Delivery App which was presented at the event. It is a tool to help birth attendants. At both meetings she held the opening speech.

Apparently Mary changed clothes since she arrived in the morning. I wasn't aware of that until Kate showed me pictures of her in a stunning bright red dress. A friend of hers suggested a Michael Kors dress in which I see a similarity with Mary's from the afternoon events. This is the first time I'm aware of her wearing that designer. To give the outfit a professional look she matched it with a black blazer, snake skin belt seen before and her SAND Copenhagen or Gianvito Rossi pumps. The earrings was the same such as the bracelets and Prada handbag. Orit Elhanati is the designer of her golden necklace around her neck.
