THE CHILDREN'S DAY 2020

20th November

Two live streamed events with only a couple of days in between. That is new. First, the Crown Princess participated in a live stream on occasion of the Youth Public Meeting on Wednesday, here, and then two days later yet another one with UNICEF. A great way to great your message out without too many people gathered at one place.

The live stream took place in Tivoli on occasion of The Children's Day 2020. Organized by UNICEF. When arriving to Tivoli, she was welcomed by her "debate group" (Vilma, Esther and Thea) and Sofie Østergaard - a UNICEF ambassador. The five of them seems to get along right away and that is important when to discuss a private matter such as well-being.

Vilma, Esther and Thea answered questions about, among other things, what it is to be a child and young person in Denmark. Also questions like children's well-being under the corona and about children's rights in a global perspective were discussed. Serious questions that can be answered in many ways. Points to the three girls, who did a great job.

She also asked the young girls for some help. Crown Princess Mary had been asked to pick a song for a popular Danish program called "Fællessang - hver for sig". A program organized by conductor Phillip Faber. Vilma, Esther and Thea helped her pick the song "I Danmark er jeg født" with text by Hans Christian Andersen.

If this look is not inspiring, then I do not know what is. I especially love her outwear. When arriving to Tivoli, Mary was wearing her old navy blue Fonnesbech coat. A stunning piece. Even the length is inspiring. So is the color. She matched it with a reused watercolor printed scarf from Paul Smith. We first saw this scarf 9 years ago in 2011. She has worn it at a couple of public event, but mostly it is worn at more private events. Like when the family visited LegoLand during their holliday at Gråsten, here. I really like this combo.

The interview revealed what she was wearing underneath that smashing coat: a simple white button-down blouse and black wide-legged trousers. An amazing look. I always loved these wide-legged trousers of hers. She wears them so beautifully. Wish I had the hight and figure to wear such trousers. I don't.

She embraced the style with golden jewellery. I see hoops from Dulong Fine Jewelry; a couple of magnificent necklaces from Orit Elhanati (one of them is rather new) and a course her diamond band from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Nothing new about these pieces of jewellery, but she wears them like it was the first time - every time. I am sure you also noticed her pointed ankle boots from Pura Lopez. They go back to 2013. A lovely pair of fall accessory. Mary also accessorized her outfit with her blue leather tote from Prada. Once again, her grace overwhelmed me.

VISITING UNESCO ASP SCHOOL & A YOUTH PUBLIC MEETING

18th November

For many years, the Crown Princess has been committed to do what she can to make the world a better place. A job like that takes might be overwhelming to some and probably also the Danish Crown Princess, but that thought seems to light up her spirit even more.

On Wednesday, Crown Princess Mary payed a visit to one of UNESCO's ASP schools: Roskilde Gymnasium. These school are being part of the global UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network. It gathers around 11,500 schools and institutions of education in more than 182 countries around the world. This impressive project is all about developing a teaching that supports the UN's world goals - something the Crown Princess has been truly committed to help fulfill. 

She was warmly welcomed with both smiles and flowers, when she arrived to Roskilde Gymnasium. The students were in the middle of several different workshops. They gladly shared their thoughts and experiences with her. Especially, the UN's future role in achieving the world goals was in everybody's interest. The Crown Princess listened with great interested and participated the debate as well.

In the afternoon, she participated in a meeting with the Youth Public Meeting at ALICE cph in Copenhagen. Due to the worldspreding pandemic things have been a bit different for quite some time. It has also forced us to think alternative solutions and be creative on how we meet. Therefor the meeting was a live stream. 

The Youth Public Meeting is a democracy festival. It aim to create both create desire and courage among young people to be part of the democracy debate. Crown Princess Mary showed her suppose with, among others, a speech. It was broadcasted live to all youth educations in Denmark. I guess it was inspiring watching the Crown Princess speak from your classroom.

Think we saw a casual and really well-dressed Crown Princess. Not much changed from one event to the other. Actually, she only added her old beloved Bottega Veneta handbag to complete the outfit, when participating the live stream at ALICE cph. Lately, we have seen so many incredible looks. She especially impressed me with her outfit at the presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize, here, and when she attended the 20th anniversary conference with Children, Youth & Grief, here. The colors were absolutely magnificent.

When visiting Roskilde Gymnasium and later on attending the Youth Public Meeting, Mary had chosen a more simple outfit, but only when it comes to colors. She matched a reused Shrimps blouse with a pair of stunning Céline trousers and her black Prada coat. Simple, but it works! What is great about these more casual looks, is the chance to spice it up with eye-catching accessories. First I noticed the black belt. We have seen it before, but I still do not know where it is from - and it bothers me.

A closer look revealed that she was also wearing smashing pieces of jewellery. The diamond earrings are from Sophie Bille Brahe. I see three different bracelets: one from Cartier and two golden ones from Dulong Fine Jewelry. Classy creations that seems to be favorites of hers at the moment. With some detective work, I finally found a picture that show her ring. It is her beautiful Dulong Fine Jewelry ring with the green stone and diamonds. Rather new.

Something that is not new, is the black ankle boots. I assumed they were new, but I was wrong. They are old Pura Lopez boots. We have only seen her were these beauties once in public and that was when she was on her way to a private event. It was in 2013, when attending a private hunting dinner at Amalienborg. Unfortunately, I was only able to find one picture from the event and it does not show her shoes, but still you get a glimpse of how she style them boots once, here.

20 YEARS WITH "CHILDREN, YOUTH & GRIEF"

12th November

"It is difficult, if not imposible, to find meaning in losing someone you love". With these words the Crown Princess started her speech at the Children, Youth & Griefs 20th anniversary conference at Skuespilhuset. She arrived in a great mood with a big smile on her face. It was a proud guest of honor and patron she attended the event.

Children, Youth & Grief offers free specialized psychological help for children and young people under the age of 28, who have either lost a close family member or have a seriously ill parent or sibling. Crown Princess Mary has been patron for the organisation for several years now and on that occasion she has participated many event during the years. At each event she gets a new insight into the organization's work to help children and young people in a difficult time of their life.

The Crown Princess often gives a speech at the events she attends. She even won a prize for her speech at Crown Prince Frederik's 50th birthday. Her speech at the anniversary conference is now almost legendary because of her impulsive emotional reaction to her own words. Most media linked her reaction to her own loss of her mother. I am sure it had an impact on her too, but actually she commented on it herself in a post on social media. Her reaction was the result of a more common feeling amongst all of them gathered in Skuespilhuset. They all suffered some kind of loss. They all know what it is to loose someone.

I love women in a good suit. I simply love suits in all colors and shapes. Mary has really embraced the love of suits too. Recently, she has worn suits and matching sets on a number of different occasions. Like when she attended the inauguration of Nation of Health, here, handed over the CSR Award, here, or visited Helsingør, here. At the Children, Youth & Griefs 20th anniversary conference Mary wore a brand new chic suit. Heaven managed to identify this new green suit as a design from Massimo Dutti. I imagine it worn with so many of her colored shoes and blouses. Cannot wait to see it again. Hopefully soon. She matched it with a new white blouse from Hugo Boss.

A few details were a little different than what we are use to see. Usually, Mary does not wear a facemask and we never see her with glasses. At least not at official events. She looks completely different wearing glasses, but I love it. FLEYE previously confirmed to me that her glasses are their design. She also styled her outfit with more wellknown accessories. The black bag is one of her old favorites from Bottega Veneta and the matching green leather pumps are from Valentino.

Mary also wore interesting and beautiful jewellery. A closer look revealed that her golden earrings and necklace are new too. With some help from Kate it turned out that the earrings are from Orit Elhanati - the same designer as both her old golden necklace and the new one. We also get a glimpse of her golden Cartier bangle and a diamond band from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. A really amazing outfit, right?
