Visiting Mali

October 23-24th


The Crown Princess was suppose to visit Senegal along with Minister of Development Ulla Tørnæs during this week, but was canceled last week for security reasons -no one really knows the exact reason for the cancellation. The visit to Senegal had focus on child marriages. Because the visit had been canceled, I think many of you had wished to see the Crown Princess attend the concert held at Fredensborg Castle on Tuesday hosted by the Queen, here. Am I right? Well, that didn't happen because Crown Princess Mary attended a conference about reproductive health and child marriages in Mali from October 23-24th. Minister of Development Ulla Tørnæs accompanied the Crown Princess in Mali. The Crown Princess met with, among others, Mali's First Lady Keita Aminata Maiga who also attended the conference, which by the way, was organized by UNFPA -the United Nations Population Fund, here.



The visit also gave her a chance to pay a visit to Danish soldiers and several members of the Danish Home Guard under UN peacekeeping mission MINUSMA, here. During her visit at the camp she got a guided tour around 'Camp Bifrost', saw a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft from inside, here, and enjoyed a meal with the deployed soldiers. As last agenda the Crown Princess gave a speech, which I imagine was an honest and honoring speech right from her heart.

    Let's not forget what all this was about: reproductive healthcare, the fight against child marriages as well as girls and women's rights. Nevertheless, Mary wore some pretty incredible outfit's during her stay in Mali. In total we got three very different outfits. I haven't been able to figure out exactly when she was attending what -you know if she visited the camp on October 23rd or 24th etc. Still, I would like to pay attention to her clothes for a short moment by mentioning what I have been able to identify so far. It is always a dilemma for me if I should even be mentioning anything about fashion when Mary is working with a committed heart to fight for girls and women's rights such as reproductive healthcare and combat child marriages. Which is why I keep it to a minimum. I hope you understand and respect my decision.

    1. I completely understand why the focus on such trips should not be on the fashion. Mary looked respectful, comfortable and professional. Thanks for posting about this trip.
