2020 has indeed been a year with changes to adapt to. Some things have been difficult to live without. Meanwhile, it has also thought us to be creative and go new ways both in private and in public. Like the rest of us, the royal family have also changed a few things. Several visits, conferences, openings and inaugurations have been downsized and many more were canceled.
About now, Crown Princess Mary has participated in a number of virtual meetings. One of them was her last appointment - a virtual summit about young people's well-being during COVID-19. She recorded her speech in advance, the day before, right from her office at Amalienborg, here.
When the Crown Princess speaks; we listen. As always, she has found her way to the core of what is important to highlight. Over the last few months, she has been confirmed in how reflective and caring Danish young people are. How much they think about others. And for that, she is grateful and proud. She also reminded us that we need to keep in mind that many of the things that young people have had to do without or have missed can feel like a greater loss. Something we must not look down on. Watch the whole speech here.
It is not the first time this year that she is engaging in the well-being of children and young people during the pandemic. To mention just a couple: the International Day of the Girl Child, here, and the Children's Day 2020, here.
Minister of Education and Research Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen and Minister of Culture Joy Mogensen also participated the virtual summit as hosts.
From her purple chair. Behind her beautifully decorated desk Mary recorded her speech to the virtual summit on young people's well-being during COVID-19. For the event, she was dressed in her incredible bright blue blouse from Jesper Høvring. She matching it with what looks like simple black wide-legged trousers. She has worn the blouse on two other occasions. First at a Christmas reception in 2016 with the Mary Foundation and its partners, here, and later on in 2018 at the Designers' Nest Award, here. This is the first time she wears it with other trousers.
Mary embraced her lovely outfit with a few jewellery as well. All golden. Dulong Fine Jewelry is the master behind both her earrings and one of the bracelets. She has worn this combo for a while now. I really like, when we get to see her wear the same combination of jewellery with different outfits. Make me wanna find my own "jewellery-combo". The second bracelets looks like her beloved Cartier bangle. The short Orit Elhanati necklace has been in her wardrobe for many years, but the second one is rather new. Both necklaces are from the same creator. Would you wear two necklaces on a daily basis like Mary does?
We get a glimpse of her shoes as well. I think it looks like black suede pointed pumps. What do you see? If I am right, they could be from Gianvito Rossi. But I am not sure at all. What I now for sure, is that her hair and makeup looks absolutely splendid.
