Day 2: With the Mary Foundation to Greenland

Tuesday, August 30th

Crown Princess Mary traveled to Greenland with Mary Foundation, from August 29-31st, on occasion of the conference Domestic violence - a shared responsibility

  • 8:55 am. Crown Princess Mary attended the opening of the conference Domestic violence - a shared responsibility 
  • 1:30 pm. Crown Princess Mary was present at several work meeting with among others NAKUUSAs Children's Council 
  • 4:30 pm. Crown Princess Mary attended the closing of the conference Domestic violence - a shared responsibility

The main reason why the Crown Princess visited Greenland along with the Mary Foundation was to attend the conference entitled Domestic violence - a shared responsibility on domestic violence taking place in Nuuk. The conference is an outcome of a collaboration between the Mary Foundation and Kattunneq. 62% of adult women in Greenland have at some point been exposed to violence and more than a quarter of the Greenlandic children have experienced their mother being exposed to violence, here, which makes it an important problem trying to take of. Opening the conference on Greenlandic, she immediately caught everybody's attention. You find her speech here. Spending her day in Nuuk speaking to some who have experienced domestic violence in their own body. More than once Mary expressed how impressed she was of all those who choose to come clean and tell their stories on a topic that otherwise is regarded a taboo. Break the silence -is an essential part of the Mary Foundations work. I'm sure this was an great experience for all of the participants including Mary herself. She shared a little piece of her trip, here, with the rest of the world.

Well, I do not have to mention that I think the conference and its message is way more important the what she was wearing, though it is a part of who she is. We have had this discussion quite a few times before and you already know my point of view. So. In a classic and simple navy blue Hugo Boss dress featuring a little peplum, I think this was the perfect to wear for a conference with such on important message -lets do something to end domestic violence. I learned about the dress at Royals and Fashion, thanks. At the arrival she was kept warm in her new Jesper Høvring coat from his Great Greenland AW2016 collection. Her outfit was styled with a couple of favourite bracelets (Dulong Fine Jewelry and Cartier), white pearl earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry, the dazzling Ralph Lauren bag and, of course, a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. A beautiful way of dressing when you need something a little more sophisticated but still looking chic. 

...and this was end of her Greenland-trip.
