An (untraditional) Christmas greeting

23 December

Just a few days ago, Crown Princess Mary shared her words on 2021 for the Mary Foundation and their work (here). What they have achieved, worked for, developed. Usually, she also shares a little video with all of us with a Christmas greeting. The same thing happened this year, but in an untraditional way because she recorded her video greeting on her own phone by herself.

The Crown Princess was tested postitive of COVID-19 about 14 days ago, but this did not stop her from making her video.

As in her other greeting, she speaks about hope. Why hope is so important, when and what gives hope. A study of theirs showed a clear result on what gives people hope: that other people reach out and offer their help. With these words, the Crown Princess and I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with a sincere hope that you will enjoy time with loved ones. Merry Christmas!



Crown Princess Mary's Christmas greeting

21 December

As Charman of the Mary Foundation, Crown Princess Mary has made it a tradition to share a Christmas greeting and catch up how the foundation's year has been. What they have experienced, learned, worked with.

In her greeting, the Crown Princess make it clear that 2021 has differently been a troubled year like last year, but some things are more like we were use to before the pandemic - also for the Mary Foundation (here). Despite the smaller positive changes to what we know as "normal", many have still been affected by all the restrictions, especially school children and young people. 

The foundation has spend much time focusing on the children the last couple of years. Among others, they arranged Fantastic Football Parties, developed on the project "Together without Violence", implementing "Skolestyrken" in more schools and they have been become wiser on how to combat solitude with a study. The Mary Foundation also worked hard to bring back hope for all of us.



With the greeting, we have two new photos of the Mary taken by photographer Stine Heilmann. She is the master behind quite a few photos of both the Mary and her husband, Crown Prince Frederik.

Mary embraced a relaxed and Christmas-like outfit. She wore a reused purple turtleneck first worn, when celebrating Haslev's 150th anniversary in October earlier this year (here). She matched the blouse with a pair of simple black trousers. Wish I was able to look like this in a turtleneck and tight trousers.

She styled her beautiful Christmas-greeting-look with golden jewellery. The earrings are her beloved diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe and the two bracelets are created by talented Rebekka Notkin. We also get a glimpse of quite a few golden rings. Three of them are from Dulong Fine Jewelry and the other two are mastered by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. A lovely outfit to wear for a relaxed family gathering.

The International Human Rights Day 2021

10 December

On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, the Crown Princess posted a couple of photos from her trip to Burkina Faso in late October. Along with the photos, she also shared a few words on her experiences in Burkina Faso, which is one of the poorest countries in they world. They live with extreme climate changes, uncertainty and constant conflicts.

The Crown Princess also mentioned her meetings with girls and women, who shared their heartbreaking stories with her. The positive about the situation is centers like the Gisèle Kambou Center supported by UNICEF. She ends her post by saying, "I would like to use my platform to bring them (the girls and women) forward and raise awareness of the need to help where we can".


 

Visiting "Kræftværket" at Rigshospitalet

08 December

Over the years, it has become a tradition, around Christmas, for the Crown Princess to pay a visit to Kræftværket at Rigshospitalet. 

Kræftværket was inaugurated in 2015 as a "safe place" for young cancer patients in the age between 15 and 29. The atmosphere is relaxed and a place for the young patients to speake and share their stories.

On the evening of December 8th, the Crown Princess arrived to Rigshospitalet. She spend a good time with the young people. They shared their stories, had lots of fun, drank a cup of glögg and ate some æbleskriver - those traditional "Christmas buns" made of a kind of pancake batter.

● Kongehuset



The atmosphere was indeed relaxed. Mary's outfit had the same vibe. Visiting Kræftværket at Rigshospitalet, Mary had chosen a pair of simple black trousers and a brand new dark green blouse from Zimmerman. Heaven shared her found with me. But look at the details. The puffed sleeves and turtleneck. Lovely!

A closer look revealed to me that she was also wearing a few pieces of jewellery. Among others, a brand new golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry. She already has another pair of this model, but in a larger size and studded with diamonds. Her diamond band is from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. In a way, it replaced her engagement ring. I wonder why, she does not wear it more often. She even replaced her wedding ring with another ring.

Meeting with the President of the European Court of Human Rights

03 December

We have now entered December, which means that Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will meet with the President of the European Court of Human Rights Róbert Spanó due to his visit in Denmark. He was accompanied by vice president Jon Fridrik Kjølbro. 

The meeting took place at Amalienborg in Copenhagen. Danish Minister of Justice Nick Hækkerup also attended the gathering.

A few photos were taken at the arrival of the President of the European Court of Human Rights.


Even though, she was dressed ultra simple in a blue blouse and grey trousers I really love every single part of it. The colors match with such perfection. Mary first wore the Jesper Høvring x Great Greenland blouse in 2016 at a Christmas reception with the Mary Foundation, here. "Originally" it comes with burgundy trousers, but this time she styled it with grey reused Celine trousers. I like that. The black leather belt is still a mystery to me.

We also get a glimpse of what I believe is her black ankle boots from Gianvito Rossi. She loves wearing them with wide-legged trousers like these. A closer look revealed that she also wore her beloved Sophie Bille Brahe earrings. I cannot get enough of this outfit!

Repremiere of "The Snow Queen"

01 December

It is no secret that Queen Margrethe loves to be creative and it is no secret that she loves ballet. Over the years, she has been engaged in numerous ballets. Both in making costumes and scenography. The same happened with the famous "Snow Queen" - a classic Christmas ballet. It had its repremiere in Tivoli on December 1st.

Crown Princess Mary showed up at the premiere accompanied by Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine even though it was not part of her official calendar. Of course they all wanted to support their beloved mother-in-law and grandmother. Prince Felix also supported his grandmother with the premiere by showing up.

I am not sure I will ever been a huge fan of wearing boots with long skirts or dresses. For some years, Mary has done that. Usually, I fall in love with everything she wears and all combinations, but somehow not this one. Nevertheless, I like both boots and outfit.

She matched her new black heeled ankle boots with an old Oscar de la Renta dress. One we first thought was a blouse. It turned out to be completely wrong. I learned about this "little detail" from Heaven. Thanks for making be aware of this. It features some really beautiful details. Like the beaded neckline. She first wore the dress at the inauguration of a new panda plant in April 2019, here. The white JOSEPH coat is also a reuse first worn at a new year reception in 2020, here.

As accessories, Mary had chosen simple white pearl earrings. I think we have seen then before (here), but I have never been able to identify them. We also get a glimpse of her diamond band from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. The black leather gloves and black Diane Von Furstenberg clutch are a lovely detail. Their beautiful umbrella's are TIVOLI's own design.

"Digital Divide and Forced Displacement"

24 November

Crown Princess Mary gave the opening speech at the global event "Digital Divide and Forced Displacement". It is part of an annual report by DCR Dansk Flygtningehjælp focusing on issues and its affect on displaced people and with that try to challenge the humanitarian sector.

This year they challenged the understanding and preparing the humanitarian sector and those affected by forced displacement. Therefor the theme "Digitization - the digital divide and forced displacement".

Crown Princess Mary is patron of DCR Dansk Flygtningehjælp - Denmark's largest NGO.

We know very little from this event and not much has been published. DCR Dansk Flygtningehjælp posted a single photo on their Twitter account from when she gave her speech, which took place virtually. Apparently, they also made a small interview with Mary on the occasion (see embedded post). This gave us a better clue about what she was wearing for the event.

It showed that Mary had chosen a reused white blouse featuring a lively floral print. It is from Stine Goya. Her stunning brown hair was a great contrast of the white Dulong Fine Jewelry pearl earrings. The video also revealed that she paired the blouse with lighter grey trousers and her magnificent dusty blue Strenesse coat.

Publication of the CeFU-report 2021

22 November

Many people have experience solitude throughout their life. Short periods, but also more persistent. Solitude has been on the Mary Foundation's agenda for many years and especially the last few years as it is one of the consequences of the pandemic. The foundation has especially focused on solitude among young people.

Once again, the Crown Princess, together with the Mary Foundation, attended an event focusing on solitide. She attended the publication of the CeFU-report "Can youth communities hurt?". A report by the Mary Foundation and Center for Ungdomsforskning - CeFU. The event took place at Tårnby Gymnasium in Kastrup.

Crown Princess Mary also gave a speech at the event in Kastrup. She talked about her own experiences with solitude from when her mother passed away in 1997. The Crown Princess also mentioned how she experienced shorter periodes of solitude.

On occasion of the publication a workshops took place. Crown Princess Mary also participated these herself. The workshop was all about finding ways to create healthy young communities. Later the results of the workshop was presented.

Arriving to Tårnby Gymnasium, Mary was warmly dressed in a brand new light grey winter coat. It shows very few details due to the cover of a floral printed Paul Smith scarf. Maybe we get a glimpse of her coat and will then be able to identify it. The lovely scarf goes way back. She first started wearing it in 2011. Like, when she started her travel to Africa in August 2011 (here).

Underneath, she was wearing a simple darker grey blouse from L.K. Bennett. Mary first wore this blouse at the launch of a UN report in 2016 (here). She matched it with a pair of simple black trousers. These kind of trousers are extremely difficult to find and the same goes with these.

Mary embraced her look with quite a few pieces of jewellery. Of course you noticed that magnificent golden necklace and its pendants. It is from talented Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. She also wore diamonds bands from the same designer. One in yellow gold and another one in gold. We also see her beloved Cartier bangle.

It looks like Mary was wearing black suede boots. Ankle boots I guess. They do not look new, but I cannot tell where we have seen them before. Maybe we have not. It is different with the bag. The black leather Bottega Veneta bag much be one of her oldest bags along with a certain Chanel bag (here). The glasses are Gucci.

Annual celebration for the University of Copenhagen 2021

12 November

It was as guest of honor that Crown Princess Mary arrived to the University of Copenhagen to attend their annual celebration. It has been a tradition right from the beginning in 1479. The year the university was founded.

I get the feeling that the atmosphere was almost majestic, when she arrived. It was silent and all eyes were on the Crown Princess.

This year the celebration was all about the founding of the Niels Bohr Institutes 100th anniversary. On that occasion, three prizes were handed over and: the Education Award, the Innovation Award and the Study Environment Award. This year's honorary doctor and doctors were also proclaimed at the annual celebration.

UFO No MoreBilled BladetBilled BladetBilled Bladet



I had no idea what to expect from her for this event. Maybe something a bit more colourful, but I like it. I like how she made a modest honor to colours with the embellished Red Valentino dress. Thanks to UFO No More, we know where her new dress are from. I never been a huge fan of these embellished Peter Pan collars. I do not know if Mary changed my mind, but she looks gorgeous. She styled the dress with a reverse black belt. A really cleaver detail.

Hope to see a better close-up of those golden earrings. In a way, they look new to me, but I could wrong. The same goes with her rather large ring. It could be this one here. Think it is a good choice of her to only wear minimal jewellery for this outfit. This dress has to speak for itself. Nevertheless, the other accessorized complimented her look beautifully.

Somehow, we only have a few photos from the event at the University of Copenhagen and the lighting it not that good in all of them. This makes it a bit difficult to see what colour the Quidam clutch and Jimmy Choo shoes are, but they are in fact blue.

Visiting Vigerslev Allé School

11 November

Meanwhile her husband and mother-in-law are on official visit in Germany, Crown Princess Mary act as head of state. With this prestiges job also comes her own duties.

On Thursday, she then visited Vigerslev Allé School on occasion of one of the Mary Foundation's project called Skolestyrken. It is a program focused on creating well-being and preventing such as dealing with bullying in schools. Skolestyrken launched in late 2020.

It was truly a pleasure watching the Crown Princess arrived to Vigerslev Allé School. All the children wanted a glimpse of her and a photo with her. She is indeed a popular woman. She was accompanied by Helle Østergaard, the Director of the Mary Foundation. The two of them were also welcomed by school principal René Bang Henriksen.

Crown Princess Mary participated one of the exercises herself. A big part of the program is to include the children as much as possible.

The Mary Foundation shared a few photos from her day at Vigerslev Allé School on social media. One of them is embedded below.

Watching her along with all the students, were the best part. Her face lit up like a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. What a sight. Second best, was her outfit. Mary looked super stylish and was perfectly dressed for both the occasion and time a year. Denmark is indeed cold and rainy at the moment. I get her choice of clothes.

She styled a brand new navy blue turtleneck blouse with a pair of reused grey trousers. I kinda like this combo and wonder why I have never though of it myself. Both blouse and trousers remain unidentified. The black coat is another thing. This goes back quite a few years and is from Prada. She has one similar in white as well.

The stunning golden chain bracelet with the beautiful little pendant are both from talented Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. The other golden bangle is a Cartier creation. I still like the though of it being a gift from her husband due to the name "Love Bracelet". I have never been able to identify her white and yellow diamond studs, but they are lovely. A close look revealed her wearing two Dulong Fine Jewelry rings too.

Mary matched the rest of her outfit with a many years beloved Bottega Veneta leather bag and light grey Prada ankle boots. I really like the color-combo: grey, black, blue and gold. If I was wearing trousers more often, I would try this in an instant!

Presentation of Hjerteforeningen's and Børnehjertefondens Research Grants 2021

09 November

As patron of more than 30 foundations, organizations, etc. Crown Princess Mary is differently a passioned and busy woman. Two of her patronages are Hjerteforeningen and Børnehjertefonden. So, when the two of them has arranged the presentation of Hjerteforeningen's and Børnehjertefondens Research Grants 2021, Crown Princess Mary also attended the event.

It took place at prestiges Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen. For many years, the Crown Princess has taken part in the presentation of the Research Grants honoring promising projects in the field of cardiovascular disease research.

The Crown Princess Mary warmly welcomed by ambassador for Hjerteforeningen Birthe Kjær. She is a famous Danish singer. On occasion of the presentation, Crown Princess Mary held a speech and thanked all those who have contributed to make it possible throughout the years.

Later, she handed over three research grants. They were given to Professor Henning Bundgaard from Rigshospitalet, assistent professor Per Agger from Aarhus University Hospital and PhD student Flemming Javier Olsen from Herlev and Gentofte Hospital.

What a beautiful outfit Mary wore at the presentation of Hjerteforeningen's and Børnehjertefondens Research Grants 2021, which took place at Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen. She had chosen one of her old beloved black jackets from WILLOW and a burgundy tweed skirt from Alexander McQueen. A really lovely match to honor autumn.

Mary embraced the look with her golden Cartier bracelet and Sophie Bille Brahe diamond earrings. I have never been that crazy about these earrings, but it seems like Mary is a true fan. She has worn them so many times already and I think she will continue that tendency. The stunning golden leaf brooch is a vintage Emmons brooch. I have a golden leaf brooch myself and they are just great for November-outfits. Do you like wearing brooches? Mary also wore a magnificent oval ring featuring a dark purple stone from Dulong Fine Jewelry. It is unique ring from their Pacific collection (here).

The black Celine belt is also an old goodie. Highly loved by her. Mary master these thin belts with such elegance. It matched her black leather clutch from Quidam and those Gianvito Rossi pumps perfectly.

Hubertus Hunt in Dyrehaven 2021

07 November

The Hubertus Hunt has been an annual event since 1900. It still takes place in Jægersborg Dyrehaven surrounding the Eremitage Castle.

Back in time, the Hubertus hunters were accompanied by dogs hunting foxes for 11 kilometers around the Dyrehaven. On the rid, the riding hunters are challenged by 32 obstacles. The tradition has remained more than 120 years, but now the foxes have been replaced by skilled riders.

This year, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine joined Crown Princess Mary at the Hubertus Hunt 2021. On occasion of the hunt, the Crown Princess handed over Crown Princess Mary's Honorary Award to the winner of the Hubertus Hunt. A tradition both Queen Ingrid and Prince Henrik have had the honor of call theirs. Now, Crown Princess Mary is next in line after her father-in-law.

I love that Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine accompanied their mother at this years Hubertus Hunt in Jægersborg Dyrehave. Both twins were comfortably and warm dressed for the occasion. Just like their mother was. Mary stunned in a brown and white combo. The amazing chocolate brown wool coat is an old goodie from Prada. She has worn the coat since beginning of 2006 (here). I guess the cozy white turtleneck is also a reuse such as the dark brown trousers.

She accessorized her outstanding autumn outfit with Thierry Lasry sunglasses and matching light brown knitted gloves. Perfect accessories for the occasion and weather. It is sunny, but a bit cold in Denmark at the moment. We also get a glimpse of her golden Cartier bangle. Her all time favourite piece of jewellery along with her golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet (here).

I am sure you all also noticed Mary's beautiful golden horseshoe brooch. A lovely detail, don't you think? She matched it with yellow diamond studs. A closer looked revealed that she was wearing brown shoes as well. Maybe suede boots? A closer look revealed that Mary was in fact wearing a brand new leather tote bag from Decadent Copenhagen. I learned about the bag from Heaven.

Presentation of the 'Nordic Council 2021'

02 November

It was a big night for the Crown Princes Couple, when they arrived to Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen to attend the presentation of the Nordic Council's award ceremony 2021. The couple were welcomed by Vicepresident for the Nordic Council 2021 Annette Lind and President for the council Bertal Haarder - a Danish politician.

The Nordic Council was established to increase the interest in both literature, languages, films and music in Nordic countries.

Several awards were handed over at the ceremony Tuesday evening. The Nordic Council's children's and young people's literature prize were presented and handed over to the Swedish author Elin Persson by Crown Princess Mary herself.

Jonas Poher Rasmussen received the movie award. The music award was given to Faroese Eivør Pálsdóttir and the literature award to Greenlandic author Niviaq Korneliussen. The environmental award went to the Climate Database from Denmark. Congratulations to all the award winners.

About two months ago, Mary attended the grand official opening of Copenhagen 2021 (here). Why mention that? Because she wore the exact same bright red Birgit Hallstein dress. I absolutely love this dress. She belted the dress with a black embellished belt, which I think we have seen before on previous occasions.

Even though it looks like she had chosen a few jewelry, a closer look reveal that Mary was in fact wearing quite a few pieces of accessories. The stunning diamond earrings are created by talented Dulong Fine Jewelry. They are also the master of her rather large diamond ring. Her two matching golden bangles are from Cartier and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. I see yet another bracelet, but that is still unknown in identify.

She embraced the style by wearing one of her black clutches as well. This one is from Sergio Rossi. I am sure you noticed her black pumps as well. At first, it looked like her old ones, but I was wrong. They are brand new. A new pair are added to her wardrobe. They have been identified as Gianvito Rossi.

The Psychiatry Foundation's 25th anniversary

02 November

Over the years, Crown Princess has become the proud patron of a number of different foundations and organizations. One of them is the Psychiatry Foundation. This year, they celebrate their 25th anniversary and as patron, Crown Princess Mary was invited to attend the big day.

She arrived to the Psychiatry Foundation's facilities in Copenhagen, where the anniversary event was about to take place. At the arrival, she was welcomed by Chairman of the Psychiatry Foundation Torsten Bjørn Jacobsen and the foundation's CEO Marianne Skjold.

The Crown Princess gave a speech on the occasion of the 25th anniversary.

I want to wear a pink and grey outfit right away. Mary convinced my that this is the ultimate colormatch this Fall. The lovely bobble-gum pink coat is from Andiata. She first wore it, when she attended the Global Network of Women's Shelters' Conference in 2015 (here). It is indeed a really beautiful coat. Mary matched the stunning coat with a similar colored Hugo Boss blouse and a brand new grey midi skirt. I have not yet been able to identify her new skirt.

Mary is truly a master, when it comes to picking the right accessories for her outfits. So did she at the anniversary event for the Psychiatry Foundation. Those powder pink Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings are a really fine choice. Such as the golden Orit Elhanati necklace and the two golden rings from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

Another clever choice is the fact that she embraced the style with new grey suede Gianvito Rossi pumps and a Quidam leather clutch. I am stunned how her new pumps and skirt match in color. That is almost crazy.

Presentation of the annual Christmas Stamp 2021

01 November

What a way to welcome November. It was as patron of the Julemærkefonden that Crown Princess Mary showed up at Copenhagen City Hall to participate the presentation of the annual Christmas Stamp.

Every year, a new stamp is designed and sold to collect money to the Christmas Stamp homes in Denmark. Here children are given the chance to evolve, find confidence, learn why exercise and healthy food are good for both our mental and physical health.

It is illustrator Peter Bay Alexandersen, who created the lovely motive for this years Christmas Stamp. He titled them "Home for Christmas". Truly a dreamy design.

The Crown Princess was welcomed with smiles, a bouquet of flowers and lots of observant children in Copenhagen City Hall. Everyone wanted a glimpse of her at the annual presentation of the Christmas Stamp. The new stamp was later revealed by Crown Princess Mary and its creator Peter Bay Alexandersen.

Lately, we have seen Mary wear such colorful and bright outfits. That changed a bit at the presentation of the new Christmas Stamp. When she arrived to the City Hall in Copenhagen, she revealed not only this years stamp but also a simple black and white outfit.

The stunning white coat goes back to 2005. She first wore it at the inauguration of a new ontological center in April (here). Actually, she repeated her very first look at the presentation of the Christmas Stamp 2021. Black dress - white coat. Then in 2014, the coat was altered and today it features no collar anymore (here).

Mary embraced her fine look with lovely white pearl earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry and an elegant Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen diamond band. Amazing how simple a few pieces of jewellery can make an outfit even more beautiful.

Usually, my eyes catch one detail first. This time, my eyes spotted her little black clutch first. It looks so much like one of her old Diane von Furstenberg clutches (here). Time was no on my side, but luckily UFO No More had the same idea. They identified the clutch as Diane von Furstenberg. It matches perfectly the pointed black leather pumps from Gianvito Rossi.

Day 2. Visit to Burkina Faso

29 October


Meeting the President of Burkina Faso

So, we just found out that Crown Princess Mary and Minister of Development Flemming Møller Mortensen have been on a two-days visit to Burkina Faso. In a troubled state like Burkina Faso, many girls and women have to pay the price and compromise their health, rights and opportunities. All because they live with poverty, a changing climate and much uncertainty.

On her second day in Burkina Faso, she first met with President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré. The meeting took place in the President Palace in Burkina Faso's capital, Ouagadougo. I am sure the President was able to give the Crown Princess a clear view of the situation in both Ouagadougo and Kaya as the Crown Princess visited the day before (here).

Kongehuset 



Meeting with the President of Burkina Faso from the morning, Mary had chosen a lovely outfit. She matched a simple white Hugo Boss blouse with a stunning floral printed midi skirt. The skirt has not yet been identified. I look forward to the day I happens.

She embraced the style with golden Orit Elhanati earrings, a nude reused clutch and what looks like new brown suede Gianvito Rossi Pumps. Truly a magnificent outfit for such a meeting.

During the day

After meeting President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré in the Presidential Palace, she and her traveling partner Flemming Møller Mortensen paid a visit to a local girls club not that far from Ouagadougou. Girls from the girl club, shared their stories and experience with child marriages, violence and  circumcision with the Crown Princess. The girls club act as a closed forum for the girls to talk, get legal advice and psychological support.

Crown Princess Mary enjoyed lunch with representatives from a youth panel. This youth panel is by initiative by the Danish Embassy in Burkina Faso. It provides the embassy a view and guidance of how to implement Denmark's help in the state.

After having lunch, the Crown Princess visited the counseling center ABBEF-centre. ABBEF has a wide range of competent health professionals, who offers their help and knowledge about both contraception, HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health in genereal.

After her visit at the Presidential Palace, Mary made quick change in clothes to an exotic printed button-down and her beloved green Apiece Apart midi skirt. Such a comfortable and down-on-earth-look. 

She accessorized the outfit with earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry, a bracelet from the same designer and an Orit Elhanti necklace. The second golden bracelet is Cartier.

Wish I would be able to wear these golden sandals from Anonymous Copenhagen, but my feet would never cooperate with me. It looks like Mary makes it work perfectly.

Reception at the Danish Embassy

It had already been a long day for both the Crown Princess and the Minister of Development Flemming Møller Mortensen, but they had one more event to attend: an evening reception hosted by the Danish Ambassador in Burkina Fasp Steen Sonne Andersen.

At the reception, Crown Princess Mary had obviously been asked to make a speech and she did. She was then to meet a number of those partners Denmark collaborate with in Burkina Faso.

In the evening, she had changed clothes one more time. One final time before her visit was about the end and she was headed back home to Copenhagen. I learned from UFO No More that Mary was wearing a new green printed Hennes & Mauritz dress matched with a new leather belt from Isabel Marant.

As other accessories, she had chosen large golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry and a matching Orit Elhanati necklace. We also get a glimpse of a rather large ring. That is also from Dulong Fine Jewelry.

To me, it looks like Mary embraced the outfit with a new black (embroidered?) clutch as well and brand new peep-toe sandals from Givenchy. Thanks to UFO No More we know about these fascinating heeled sandals.

Day 1. Visit to Burkina Faso

28 October

Apparently, Crown Princess Mary has been on a two-days visit abroad. On October 28th, she arrived to Burkina Faso. She was accompanied by Flemming Møller Mortensen, Danish Minister of Development. The two of them had traveled to Burkina Faso to rais attention to girls and women's rights and opportunities. In a state troubled with severe climate changes and terrorism, this has become even more difficult.

Much has improved since the Crown Princess visited Burkina Faso five years ago, there are still a long way to go (here) (here). The state's development the last couple of years, has not been for the better. Mainly, girls and women's pays the price and many have to compromise their freedom, rights and opportunities due to their gender.

On the first day, Crown Princess Mary and Minister of Development Flemming Møller Mortensen visited Kaya. Their program was packed with a general focus on climate changes and all of those people, who have been displaced internally. Places like health-clinics are truly under a huge pressure, both before and certainly at the moment due to the current situation in Burkina Faso.

Visiting Kaya, Mary was dressed in an old Heartmade Julie Fagerholt printed blouse and a pair of sandy colored trousers paired with a brown leather belt. I guess it was both practical and comfortable. Keeping her eyes protected by the sun with a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and a Cavalleria Toscana cap.

I learned from UFO No More that her new white sneakers are from Veja. Never thought we would get to see Mary wear such sneakers, but I get why. A close look revealed that she accessorized her first look in Burkina Faso with jewellery from Orit Elhanati, Cartier and Dulong Fine Jewelry. The fine Kknekki hairband was a spot-on accessory as well.
