Crown Princess Mary visited the kindergarden Troldehøj in Helsingør because of the Mary Foundation's project Reading Games (LæseLeg) which is used in the kindergarden.

What is Reading Games / LæseLeg?
Reading Games / LæseLeg is a educational materials that strengthen children's language and self-confidence by actively involving them in reading stories. The project was launched in 2011 developed by the Mary Foundation. Today over 900 different institutions uses the project which aims to involve children from the age 3-6 years old. You find more information on the project here.

It was a very proud Crown Princess and chairman of the Mary Foundation who arrived to Helsingør  to spend some hours with Troldehøje kindergarden and its children. The kindergarten is just one of the 500 new users of LæseLeg the last year. The project is created to improve children's language and social interaction. Troldehøje kindergarden is a perfect example of who the project can help the children. 

Mary was invited to attend some of the children's creative activities which is a essential part of LæseLeg such as visualizing the words through pictures. Right from the arrival Mary was down on the floor to talk with the kids and with great excitement they told her about all the things they had made and showed her their drawings. Before she took the time to focus on the children she spoke about how our language develop when we play. It's a completely other way to learn but most children find it much easier to learn through plays. She expressed her concern for the children who have only a very little language translations of it most often stands in the way of other socialization. Such as Mary, did Helle Østergaard CEO of the Mary Foundation reminded everybody about the importance of the work that Troldehøje do to the children by working with their language and vocabulary. Language can be an obstacle when they get older, this can be prevented by doing something about the problem before it actually becomes a problem, which Social-, children- and Integration Minister also emphasized the importance of. 

At last Mary expressed how happy she was to see such progress and how Troldehøj works intensively to help the kids as much as possible. Before Mary had some time on her own, some parts of LæseLeg were demonstrated which she watched with great interest along with the Mayor of Helsingør Johannes Hecht-Nielsen, language tutor Jette Løntoft and Social-, children- and Integration Minister. To all kids excitement did Hr. Skæg (a figure from a Danish children broadcast) also attend and entertained by reading a book.

Four words to describe her outfit: grey business looks rocks! She defied the Danish weather and had bare legs under the stunning grey, new, lace skirt. That kind of skirt we see everywhere on the catwalk, especially with the shorter petticoat. Even though Mary wear trends we see right now everywhere, she wear it like the was the one who invented it. The pencil skirt is a true classics, as a lace pencil skirt it's super chick. The style reminds me a lot of Danish Heartmade by Julie Fagerholt or Dolce & Gabbana because they often uses lace in their designs. The new black jacket gave the look a touch of attitude and is perfect for a November day. The jacket has been identified as WILLOW.

I wouldn't mind look like this at work and with the grey patent belt perfectly matching her Rupert Sanderson pumps, in the same colour, she rocked a day in grey! Grey is one of my favourite colours to wear in the fall and winter because of my blond hair. Not to forget her pumps are not new, she has worn the a several different occasions before this one but it took me forever to identify them. Now I'm sure I have the right designer. I don't know if you can go crazy of a pair of earrings? -well I can. I absolutely adore her new Marianne Dulong earrings featuring the little pendant. Those I have linked you down below aren't quite the same because the pendant are different but I'm sure they are from Dulong. I think she wore her Shamballa Jewels bracelet as well. You see her hairstyle on the picture above where you might also get a glimpse of the new golden earrings. Once again I want to thanks Agnés Colbert for letting me share her amazing photos with all of you!
