Day 2: With the Mary Foundation to Greenland

Tuesday, August 30th

Crown Princess Mary has traveled to Greenland with the Mary Foundation on occasion of the conference Domestic Violence - A Shared Responsibility. The visit take place from August 29-31st.

The main reason why the Crown Princess visited Greenland, along the Mary Foundation, was to attend the conference 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. More than 50% 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 according to the Mary Foundation. This statistic makes it highly important to focus on.

When opening the conference with a speech, here, she caught everybody's attention. During the day in Nuuk Crown Princess Mary got the chance to speak to some of those who have experienced domestic violence on their own body. The Crown Princess expressed how impressed she was of all the women for their courage to come clean and tell their stories regardless of it being a taboo. "Break the silence" is what is essential and is something the Mary Foundation use as guideline.

I'm sure this was an great experience for all of the participants including the guest of honor herself. She even share a little something from her trip with the rest of us, here.

What is most important about this trip is by no doubt the message: to "break the silence". Strong words takes a strong and powerful outfit. At the arrival Mary showed up wearing her Jesper Høvring (collection: Great Greenland AW2016) coat. We have already seen her in this piece during her stay in Greenland. Entering the stage to give her speech, she reviled one of her classy Hugo Boss dresses. A navy blue one featuring a little peplum. A killer outfit. Really a great look to wear at a conference with an important message. I learned about the dress at Royals and Fashion, here.

Mary embraced the style by wearing bracelets from both Dulong Fine Jewelry and Cartier. Amazing pieces. She also wore white pearl earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry as well, such as a dazzling Ralph Lauren tote. For some time I have been in love with this handbag. I know I'll never in a million year be able to purchase one myself but a girl is allowed to dream, right? The same goes with that incredible snake skin pumps from Christian Louboutin. With this outfit I think she managed to dress perfectly for the occasion and enchant us all with her charme.
