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).


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.
