The French Embassy's Prize for Human Rights 2015

Tuesday, November 24th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation ceremony of the French Embassy's Prize for Human Rights 2015 as patron of the Maternity Foundation at the French Embassy in Denmark, Copenhagen. 

About the Maternity foundation 
With the vision 'no women should die giving life' the danish developed organization, the Maternity Foundation works to reduce maternal and newborn mortality in developing countries by among others seek care in communities where they can have a safer birth with skilled birth attendance. All this to save the more than 800 women who die from complication in pregnancy or childbirth every day. Crown Princess Mary has been patron of the Maternity Foundation since 2010 and has worked hard to spread the word trying to save more women's lives. Read more here

Two and a half hour after Mary participated in an exclusive tennis event with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki in the KB-Hall in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, she attended the presentation ceremony of The French Embassy's Prize for Human Rights 2015 which was handed over to the Danish developed organization, the Maternity Foundation who works to reduce maternal and newborn mortality in developing countries, as she has been patron of since 2010. When Mary arrived to the French Embassy at Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen the weather was terrible, rainy and windy. Despite the bad weather Mary took took the time to place a large bouquet of white lilies, next to all the other flowers, in front of the French embassy in memory of the victims of the terror attack on November 13th. The main reason why I think she is doing it now is because at the time she was in Senegal on, a more or less, private visit with the organizations Orchid Project and Tostan. Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Marie attended a ceremony a few days after the attack but Mary hadn't returned home yet. I don't know if anyone expected to see her lay flowers in front of the embassy yesterday but I think it was honorable for her to do. This gesture was noticed also noticed by the French Ambassador in Denmark and former Ambassador for Human Rights who share it on his Twitter (see it below). So why white lilies? They are symbolized with both sorrow, sadness, grief and heavenly purity, life and beauty. Without a single word, the flowers was her voice.

From one bouquet to another. Before the presentation began she was given a bunch of flowers from a sweet little flower-boy this time. Accompanied by the French ambassador François Zimeray, Mary went inside to attend the presentation of the Prize for Human Rights 2015, which was handed over to the Maternity Foundation. The Maternity Foundation was rewarded for their important work saving  women and children during pregnancy and childbirth in third world countries. At this, both happy and honorable day, Mary was dressed beautifully in black. Nothing new, but Mary wear her clothes as if it was the first time, every time. The black dress features a sequin 'belt' in the waist despite that the Prada dress is quite simple. Last time we saw is was in 2014 when she attended the Ordrupgaard exhibition in Charlottenlund. At the time she also wore a red/bordeaux nail polish which so much give me the impression of christmas. A little bit of sparkle, some read and some black. It does not get any more classic. I always loved the dress with its sense of a 50s dress. A few years ago I bought a very similar vintage dress that was in a really bad condition but I had to have it, no doubt. Luckily I know how to repair and fix clothes so it was no problem for me to get the dress looks like new. Today it is one of my personal favourite dresses and when Mary wore her Prada dress the first time I was thrilled. Do you think it's too simple? This time I kinda missed the Gianvito Rossi shoes because they were a really great match. At yesterdays presentation ceremony she chose her black pumps that I strongly believe is from Gianvito Rossi, matching the Carlend Copenhagen clutch seen close to a million times before. She was also wearing her golden Orit Elhanati necklace. When she arrived to the French Embassy she wore some kind of black woolen coat and because of the wind, we had a glimpse of her reused diamond earrings. A little bit of everyday glamour.
