Day 1. Work visit in Ethiopia

26 March

During the day

Crown Princess Mary is on an unofficial work visit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on March 26-27th. The visit focuses on equality, health care and rights for girls and women. She is accompanied by, among others, Danish Minister of Development Cooporation Ulla Tørnæs. The two of them both visited a fertility clinic and a reproductive health center, here, and attended a meeting with female business executives and entrepreneurs, here. Crown Princess Mary also had the honor to attend a meeting in the Parliament.

From everything I see, she was in a splendid mood during her first day in Ethiopia. She was all smiles. What I read is that the Crown Princess impressed everybody with her presence. Seems like it was one big experience for her being in Addis Ababa.

Looks like Crown Princess Mary and Minister of Development Cooporation, Ulla Tørnæs started the day with a run in the streets of Addis Ababa, here.

The last time Mary visited Africa, she stayed in Kenya (here & here). She was all casual dressed in sneakers, button-down shirts and simple colours. So did she this time. Both herself and her companion, Ulla Tørnæs, embraced some printed skirts and plain blouses. No doubt that Mary knows how to dress for success.

In the evening, Crown Princess Mary and travel partner Ulla Tørnæs, Minister of Development Cooporation attended a reception hosted by Karin Poulsen, the Danish ambassador in Ethiopia. The reception took place at Karin Poulsen's place in Addis Ababa. The Crown Princess was warmly welcomed with smiles, flowers and handshakes. Pictures shows that she gave a speech as part of the reception. Billed-Bladet made a short footage of her evening in Addis Ababa, here.

As guest of honor she dressed up for the evening wearing yet another colourfull, printed skirt and a simple white button-down. She embraced the style with sandals, a matching bag and hoop earrings. A comfortable and chic outfit for an evening in Ethiopia.
