Opening of Human Rights Forum 2021

16th August

After a long holiday with the rest of her family, Crown Princess Mary was back at work again. She started an exciting week by attending the opening of Human Rights Forum. The forum is a part of WorldPride and EuroGames. All three LGBTI+ events goes by the name Copenhagen 2021. Human Rights Forum is hosted by both Copenhagen 2021 and UNFPA.

Crown Princess Mary attended as patron of the United Nations Population Fund - also known as UNFPA and Copenhagen 2021. She arrived to the UN City in Copenhagen around 3pm local time. She was warmly welcomed by, among others, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UNFPA Dr. Natalia Kanem and Minister for Development Cooperation and Minister for Nordic Cooperation Flemming Møller Mortensen.

Human Rights Forum was all about human rights and the inclusion of LGBTI+ people. The Crown Princess beautifully made that part of her speech. She had the honor of giving the opening speech. A speech full of love, commitment and hope. Especially, love gives life fully meaning according to the Crown Princess. We should all have the right to find love and be loved. You find her speech here.

After her own speech, Crown Princess Mary closed followed a few panel debates from front raw. I guess, it was with open ears and eyes that she attended the debates. This is truly a topic close to her heart: we all have the right to belong. We all have the right to be heard.

Crown Princess Mary also had a more personal meeting with Executive Director for UNFPA Natalia Kanem and her team. They met at Amalienborg to discuss UNFPA's work on, among other things, COVID-19 and its impact on the organizations work locally and globally. Human rights were also on the agenda. Crown Princess Mary was accompanied by Christine Pii Hansen, her private secretary.

According to the royal court, Deputy Executive Director Ib Petersen, Chief, UNFPA Resource Mobilization Branch Klaus Simoni-Pedersen, Chief, Nordic Office, UNFPA Pernille Fenger and Senior Adviser in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Jane Werngreen Rosales also participated the meeting with the Crown Princess.

Many of us loves jumpsuits, but somehow we do not like to admit it. Well, at least we 'forget' to wear them. Jumpsuits are so lovely! They can be comfortable. Easy to style. Perfect for almost every occasion possible. We differently need to embrace jumpsuits and Mary gives us a clue on how. 

She looked smashing wearing that bright blue YDE Copenhagen suit. She has worn it a few times before. Twice, actually. First, when she attended a reception in addition to Women Deliver in 2016 (here). Later that same year, Mary showed us how to wear it another way. It was when visiting the United States in September 2016 (here). Finally, she wear it again!

This time, she embraced the style with a simple blue belt. A perfect colormatch. The colorpalet was all blue and gold. A match made in heaven. I love this colorcombo. I read that her pointed suede Gianvito Rossi pumps are a reuse, but somehow I cannot manage to recall when she has ever worn these before. I know she has quite a few pairs of blue pointed shoes made of suede, but these still look new to me. Can you enlighten me? Her leather handbag, on the other hand, is indeed a reuse. A lovely reuse. This Prada tote is truly one of Mary's favorite handbags.

As jewellery, she wore golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry featuring small diamonds. Looks really great with the rest of her look and others jewellery. Especially, the golden Cartier bangle and that little golden ring of hers. I see that I do not quite agree on one of her others bracelets. To me, it looks like Mary was wearing two diamond bangles from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. One in white gold and one in yellow gold.

Meeting with Executive Director for UNFPA Natalia Kanem, Mary embraced the same lovely outfit expect one little detail: she was wearing other shoes. At the opening of Human Rights Forum she wore navy blue suede pumps and at the Amalienborg-meeting, Mary wore nude Prada pumps. Amazing how much one single detail can change everything. Do you prefer the blue or nude ones?
