Social media news

March 25th

We all know about Royal Run - one way we celebrated Crown Prince Frederik when he turned 50 a couple of years ago. People all over Denmark were gathered to run along with the Crown Prince family. It being a huge success, it was decided to gather people once more at Royal Run 3.0 this year on June 1st. Today, the family announced that the date has changed to September 6th in Denmark given to the  current situation with COVID-19, which is also affecting the Danes. The date is August 30th in Greenland.

Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary and all four children shared these news on social media  with a photo. The also encourage people - old and young - to keep up the spirit, take care about yourselves and each other.

Lately, DR (Denmarks Radio) has broadcasted morning songs with Peter Faber, who is the conductor of the Girls Choir. The little seance is broadcasted live from Peter Faber's very own living room. Each day new songs are chosen by different people. With Crown Princess Mary as patron of the Girls Choir, it is obvious for her to pick a song. And she did. Choosing the song "Solen er så rød mor" (The Sun is so Red, Mother) - a lullaby, she told Peter Faber about her choice by writing him a letter. The letter tells, among others, that this specific lullaby is dearly loved by the family, here.

Last night TV2 broadcasted a show "Danmark står sammen" (Denmark Stands Together). Here people from all over the country had a chance of telling how they are doing during this unusual situation. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also shared their point of view in a short interview and greeted those who are still working. Also their four children - Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, spoke a few words on good and bag things about being home from school.

Easter has arrived and Crown Princess Mary sends her regards as chairwoman of the Mary Foundation. It comes with an old photo from around 2013 of the Crown Prince family and Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik. Her post also includes a statement from the Crown Princess herself. It address some of the challenges we face at the moment trying to fight COVID-19. Among others that our everyday has changed. Everything we know has changed. She hopes that easter encourages us to remember those who are all on their own these days. Remember to give them a call and let them know that they are not alone.

Happy Easter everyone! I wish you and your loved ones all the best. Take care of each other and stay safe.

It is commonly known that Crown Princess Mary and the rest of the Mary Fondation meet once a week to discuss this and that. Once and in a while, we get a glimpse of how such as meeting takes place. Because of the current situation with COVID-19 that weekly meeting is now virtual. The Crown Princess captured that meeting with a photo and shared it on social media. The best photo we have seen of her for a very long time. I really adore her natural look and how relaxed she looks.

Anthology about violence

28th February

Crown Princess Mary did not just come home for nothing. On February 27th she attended the presentation of the EliteForsk Awards 2020 taking place in the Opera, here. A great day with many smiles, happy faces and gratulations to the five winners and 18 students who received a travel grant.

The following day, she participated the launch of a brand new anthology about violence - a collaboration between the Mary Foundation and Live Without Violence. It took place at Frederiksberg in Copenhagen.

Both the Mary Foundation and Live Without Violence (Lev Uden Vold) works to combat and prevent, among others domestic violence, solitude and bullying. Live Without Violence aim to raise awareness and knowledge about the topic and to create more and better help to people who have experience violence. Now the two of them have developed a new anthology for students. the anthology is called "Domestic violence - knowledge for professionals" (Vold i hjemmet - viden for fagfolk).

The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood all day. At the arrival she was warmly welcomed with smiles and handshakes. Several speeches were given during the event, including one from the guest of honor herself. Crown Princess Mary spoke about how important it is to be able to see signs, have the gut to ask for help and solutions, takes knowledge and insight. Also how essential it is for professionals to know what to look for when it comes to domestic violence. The Mary Foundation shared moments from the event on Facebook (see post below).

Attending the launch of a new anthology about violence, Mary was beautifully dressed in a red and black color-combo. It was also a combo of textures, such as new and old pieces. I am sure you are able to point out what is what. Especially if you have followed me and the Crown Princess for a couple of years.

Mary embraced the style of early spring by wearing a brand new knitted blouse. It features a stripe of beige knit work around the neckline and both sleeves. So far, I have not been able to identify who made her new blouse. Any ideas? Then let me know. It reminds me really much of her rather new Oscar de la Rente blouse, here. I like this new piece. Quite a lot actually. She matched the chic blouse with simple black trousers and a smashing red coat. I would argue that Mary is indeed wearing a coat that goes back 2008, but now it has been altered into a shorter version. Because the original almost reached her knees.

As I said, to me it looks like Mary was wearing a red (altered) coat first worn at the Royal Life Guard's 350th anniversary in 2008. More specifically, Mary stunned attending the International Military Tattoo at Rosenborg, here. Since then, she has worn the longer version at five other events. Among others in 2011 at the annual opening of the Danish Parliament, here. Do you see the resemblance?

She accessories her wonderful outfit with dazzling jewellery. The diamond earrings are from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen such as the matching diamonds bracelet. Of course she embraced the style with more amazing pieces of jewellery - a ring from Dulong Fine Jewelry, a bracelet from the same designer, and a glittering butterfly brooch. The butterfly is a symbol for the Mary Foundation.

Almost covered by trousers, shows her black leather and suede cap-toe Hugo Boss Boss. The cap-toe is a cleaver detail. As much as the coat caught my attention, is the new little handbag a new favorite of mine. Chok I love it! Heaven informed me that Mary's new Italian-leather handbag is also from Hugo Boss. So far, non of us have been able to find it in the right color, but maybe you have more luck than we do.

The EliteForsk Awards 2020

27th February

Finally, she is back for a few days again. We are missing her and the rest of the family, right? The reason for Crown Princess Mary being in Denmark these days is to attend the annual presentation of the EliteForsk Awards and travel grants 2020.

The award show goes back to 2007 with purpose to create attention about research in Denmark. EliteForsk Awards are given by the Danish Ministry of Education and Research. This year the presentation took place in the Opera, center of Copenhagen and the Crown Princess was welcomed by Minister of Education and Research, Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen.

It was with a big smile on her face that she entered the stage and gave a speech followed by a presentation of this years five winners: Professor Sine Reker Hadrup, Professor Mads Meier Jæger, Professor Anders Møller, Professor Tobias Richter and Professor Riikka Rinnan. Congratulations to each one of them with the prestigious gratuity it is to win an EliteForsk Award. What a pleasure it must be to be congratulated by the Crown Princess on such an important day of one's life. I wouldn't mind having that experience to tell my grandchildren.

Crown Princess Mary also handed over 18 travel grants from the Ministry of Education and Research to several talented researchers and students of the field.

I was thrilled about last years outfit - her in that bright red Dolce & Gabbana dress and grey wool-blend coat, here. Another success this year. Mary repeated a success by wearing her lovely JOSEPH coat. She also kept warm with beige leather gloves, which perfectly matched the beige 1602 clutch. It is made of certified Nile crocodile skin and comes with a removable shoulder-strap. So far, Mary has only dazzled wearing this little bag as a clutch.

For the sixth time Mary stunned wearing her grey tweed dress from Prada. It features a black belt embracing her slim waist and a white Peter Pan collar.

She first showed this incredible dress at the 3rd World Conference on Women's Shelters in 2015, here. Then we saw her in the dress again in 2016 at the presentation of Women's Board Award, here. In 2017, this wonderful dress followed Mary when she attended WHO Award and presenting the EliteForsk Awards of 2017, here. She also showed how to look when visiting the European Council in Strasbourg in 2018, here. Last year, is the last time we have seen her wear the beautiful dress. It was when she attended "Green Challenge" at University of Copenhagen, here. One of my favorite dresses!

Attending the presentation of EliteForsk Awards 2020 in the Opera, Mary embraced the style by wearing impressive diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe and a Dulong Fine Jewelry diamond ring. Two other golden bracelets are also designed and created by Dulong Fine Jewelry and the third one is her legendary Cartier love bangle.

Note that she was also wearing two other diamond bracelets on her right wrist. The golden one we know is from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and is from their Love Bands-collection. Turns out, the other one is from the same creator and collection, but made of yellow gold. I am crazy about this outfit. Everything from her diamond earrings to her rose-colored Gianvito Rossi pumps. Really, what is not to love?
