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.

    Les photos mettent en valeur la façon de faire de la princesse héritière: maîtrise des dossiers, écoute attentive de ses interlocuteurs...
