This year the international conference Women Deliver takes place in Vancouver, Canada from June 3-5th. It was announced a month ago who would host the next conference. Like previous years, the Crown Princess is attending the conference which is world-leading on equality, girls and women's health, rights and well-being. This years conference focus on "Power. Progress. Change".

During the three days conference, more than 8,500 people are attending from over 150 different countries. Both experts, NGO's, politicians, organizations, etc. are gathered in Vancouver to discuss and share ideas about new strategies on how to make the world a better place for girls and women. Crown Princess Mary is one of them.

The Crown Princess acted patron for the event five years ago in 2016 when Copenhagen hosted the conference. Also in 2009 (Washington) and 2012 (Kuala Lumpur) was the Crown Princess invited to attend Women Deliver. She is also influencer for the Deliver for Good campagne launched three years ago.

On Monday it all started. Crown Princess Mary had arrived to Vancouver, Canada to attend this years Women Deliver Conference 2019. During the day she participated in a number of different events. From front raw the Crown Princess listened, questioned and was overall committed.

Among others she attended the panel debate #ThePowerOfUs from which the pictures below were taken, here. Among the participants was 18 year old Natasha. She gave a strong impression on the Crown Princess. The young woman made it clear that young people do play an important role in creating a world with equal rights and possibilities for everbody. Listning to 18 year old Natasha made on impression on Crown Princess Mary, who mentioned the young woman in a quote on the royal family's social media platforms, here.

The Crown Princess also stated that it is really exciting to be in Vancouver to attend Women Deliver. She is impressed that more than 8,500 people are participating and that the atmosphere is all about energy and optimism.


Day one of the conference Mary wore two different outfits. The first I am aware of is her wearing black suit - fitted black trousers and a matching blazer. I cannot tell for sure if she has worn it before, because the lack of pictures. She probably did wear the suit on a previous occasion. The bright red blouse with the lovely print is one from Erdem. It has been seen before when participating a workshop on social norms with the Mary Foundation and other collaborators in March, here. It then looks like she embraced the style by wearing her reused Prada handbag and simple black pumps from Jimmy Choo. I imagine they are quite comfortable to wear all day because of the chunky heel. It is not the first time she took advantage of a large heeled pump. Mary actually wore this combo of shoes and bag when visiting Sorglinjen on May 29th, here.

Later when she attended the opening of the Women Deliver 2019 Conference, she had changed her outfit. Now Mary was wearing a reused pleated midi skirt from Designers Remix. This skirts was first worn three years ago when she attended the UNGA in New York, here. At that time she matched the skirt with a simple black blouse, and this time in Vancouvers she had chosen a plain white pleated blouse from to match the skirt. Lovely and minimalistic. As earlier in the morning, she was still wearing a black blazer. I also noticed diamond earrings. Guess that she could also be wearing fine bracelets to match the rest of the outfit.

4th June

It had been a busy first day in Vancouver. The Crown Princess had been participating several events and panel debates. On the second day Crown Princess Mary, among others, participated EdTech Talk - The future of health worker training. Here she was given the change to know more about how hard a challenge it can be to safe a newborn baby's life. She even tried first-aid herself on a baby doll called NeoNatalie, here. EdTech is all about future learning. Who technology will be able to help to, among others, train and educate midwives in low and middle income countries the lifesaving treatment of mothers and newborns. The Crown Princess also gave a speech as part of the event , which was organized by Maternity Foundation, ICM (the global midwives organization), Laerdal Global Health and Microsoft.



I never participated a conference myself, but I imagine it takes a quite comfortable outfit because you are wearing it all day. Mary looked really comfortable in what she was wearing during the second day of the Women Deliver 2019 conference. She had chosen to wear a reused blue blouse from Victoria Beckham with what looks like a brand new black lace skirt. A good friend of mine suggested that her new skirt could be from Dolce & Gabbana, here. It is very likely because they often make similar skirts and dresses like the one Mary is wearing at the conference. Let me know what you think or if you have heard anything interesting I need to know about. She accessorized the outfit with earrings and a ring both from Pomellato, and three bracelets from Dulong Fine Jewelry. The fourth one looks a lot like her Cartier bangle. We also got a glimpse of her Prada handbag. I am not quite sure about the navy blue suede pumps. Are these old or new?

5th June

Two long days had passed and the Crown Princess was only able to stay in Vancouver, Canada for one more day. June 5th is a special day celebrated in Denmark. It is our Constitution Day. This day the Danes celebrated the Danish democracy. On that occasion Crown Princess Mary attended a morning event with other Danes now living in the Vancouver-area. Seems like everyone were having a great time chatting and having a cup of coffee.


With only very few pictures from the morning event it is a bit difficult to tell exactly what Mary was wearing at the event. Nevertheless I immediately recognized her printed dress. It is from Diane von Furstenberg. She first wore this dress back in 2018 during an official visit to Seattle in May, here. The navy blue coat I do not recall every having seen before. To me it is brand new. It almost looks like a maxi dress. Think she is wearing matching blue pumps as well. We get a glimpse of white pearl earrings, which I believe is from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

It has been three wonderful day, and I strongly believe the Crown Princess found this a very interesting and educational visit.
