A few days ago I received a tip from a dear friend who told me that Mary had attended at meeting with World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe Dr Zsuzanna Jakab on Tuesday April  the 19th. It was vaccination, and the importance of preventing diseases with vaccination programs, which was on the agenda while discussion an ongoing collaboration such as the European Immunization Week. In the statement (link above) written by both the Crown Princess and Dr. Zsuzanna Jakab, they sum up how incredible results the European Region has obtained, among others, maintained the status as polio free. As some kind of conclusion, they two prominent women think it is now time to identify new ways to measure and communicate the full impact and of course value of vaccination, saving lives and preventing diseases in the future. This meeting took place five days before the European Immunization Week 2016 took place, from April 24-30th, which Mary and  Dr Zsuzanna Jakab mentions as a time to celebrate, to reflect on the successes of vaccination and to consider the remaining challenges we are constantly facing. With these last words I wish you happy reading, I truly enjoyed reading about thoughts, results and future wishes from both sides.


Talking about fashion, I love to see how well-dressed Mary is when she is at work also without twenty photographers and journalists following each one of her steps. Only one single photo has been published along with the statement, where she is standing next to World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe, Dr Zsuzanna Jakab. One of her really old goodies, that silky Prada  (2004) blouse featuring a significant watercolour pattern matched with a SAND Copenhagen 3/4 sleeved jacket. Beautifully she accessorized her professional business outfit with black pearl jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelry. A black pair of trousers and then my best guess would be some of her black pair of pumps.
