Christmas greeting from the Mary Foundation

21 December 2022

Crown Princess Mary shared a few thoughts about the Mary Foundation's work in 2022 a couple of days before Christmas.

She used the opportunity to encourage gatherings during Christmas. To share this time a year with others. Even though, we surround ourselves with family and friends, not all of us have this option.

"Therefore, we do not necessarily fight loneliness because we gather. We fight loneliness when we gather in safe and open communities that are based on the trust and care that we all need. Community is worth more than any Christmas present money can buy. And it is a gift we all have the opportunity to give. Thank you to all of you who face Christmas with openness towards the people around you." - Crown Princess Mary

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Crown Princess Mary, the Mary Foundation and me.

Crown Princess Mary wore her lovely green custom-made blouse from Mark Kenly Domino Tan and earrings purchased at Bruun Rasmussen a few years back. I bet the photo was taken, when the Crown Princess hosted a Christmas reception with the Mary Foundation for their partners on December 1st (here). Therefor, I believe she wore the matching trousers as well.

The perfect Christmas outfit

We are only a few days away from celebrating one of my favourite days of them all - Christmas Eve. Regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas on December 24th or 25th, you need a wonderful outfit. Crown Princess Mary has been and still is my greatest sources of inspiration, when it comes to choosing an outfit for a special occasion. Therefor, I have found some outfits of hers that inspire my most this year.

Do you have a special outfit in mind for your special evening? If not. Perhaps this will inspire you to a look that will make you sparkle like a starry night.

I will also use this occasion to wish you all a splendid Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Royal Danish Music Conservatory's Children's Choirs Christmas concert

03 December 2022

Now and then, the Crown Prince Couple are accompanied by their children for official events. This is exactly what happened, when Crown Princess Mary attended the Royal Danish Music Conservatory's Children's Choirs Christmas Concert on December 3rd. She was accompanied by Prince Christian. 

The concert has become an annual event and Crown Princess Mary has attended this wonderful afternoon for many years. When the children were younger, the whole family joined her for the Christmas concert.

Crown Princess Mary is patron for the children's choir.

Prince Christian and his mother truly enjoyed the afternoon together with many of the well-known Christmas songs beautifully performed by the choir.

The concert took place at the Royal Music Conservatory's Concert Hall at Frederiksberg.

Launching "The Community Survey II"

02 December 2022

"The Community Survey II" is a report made in collaboration by the Mary Foundation, TrygFonden and The National Research and Analysis Center for Welfare. Actually, this survey is not the first. Back in 2016, the first report was launch. Later, in 2019 yet another survey was made and followed by the report "Behind the Community Survey". 

On December 2nd, the Crown Princess attended the launch of "The Community Survey II". In her speech, she summed up with few words the result of the survey. More and more people in our society struggle with psychological unhappiness, physical health problems and loneliness. Especially, loneliness amongst children and young people has been on the Mary Foundation's agenda for many years.

Part of launching the report was also to discuss these results and possible solutions on how to reduce the number of people not feeling well in our community.

Christmas reception with the Mary Foundation

01 December 2022

It has become a tradition for Crown Princess Mary to host a Christmas reception for the Mary Foundation's partners every year. A perfect way to say "thank you for a good year with important improvement". 

Both the Crown Princess and the Mary Foundation are both really good at appreciating their partners. I like that. The foundation does an important and impressive job every single year accompanied by their partners.

They enjoyed some warm glögg, æbleskiver and a chat at Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg.

Repremiere of "The Nutcracker"

26 November 2022

Once again, Queen Margrethe shares her creative talent with all os us. She has worked as scenographer os the repremiere of "The Nutcracker". She also designed costumes for the play.

The Queen was accompanied by Queen Sonja of Norway at the premiere, which took place in Tivoli's Concert Hall. Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine also joined the premiere of this very special Christmas ballet.

All of them were smiles and happy faces at the arrival. Queen Margrethe was truly a star on a clear sky at night. It is know that the Queen is a fan of ballet. Imagine getting the chance to work with such talented ballet dancers if it is a passion of yours. 

The Crown Prince family also looked very proud of their mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. I am thrilled to see the four of them together. I imagine them having a wonderful and magical evening.

"The Nutcracker" has it's premiere for the fifth time in Tivoli.

Verdenstimen Live 2022

23 November 2022

Verdenstimen is an annual event. It aims to teach children and young people about the UN's World Goals for sustainable development. This is done by incorporating the World Goals in the children's teaching at school.

The event is arranged by Verdens Bedste Nyheder and is part of the global campaign "The World's Largest Lessen". 

This year, Crown Princess Mary attended Verdenstimen along with students from Utterslev School, Tinderhøj School, Sankt Annæ Gymnasium's Preschool and Lergravsparken's School. All of them enjoyed a day with roleplay, songs for the climate and the spread of knowledge of the world goals in primary schools and youth education in Denmark.

Crown Princess Mary was not all by herself. She was accompanied by Child and Youth mayor of the Municipality of Copenhagen Jacob Næsager and Director at Verdens Beste Nyheder Thomas Ravn-Pedersen.

Crown Princess Mary participated several activities as part of Verdenstimen Live 2022

From the arrival 

I really love a good old suit. Both wearing them myself, but also when Mary wears them. Looks so good on her. Especially, this green suit from Massimo Dutti is one of my absolute favourites. The colour is simply amazing. Perfect next to her fair skin and beautiful dark brown hair. For Verdenstimen Live, Mary had chosen to match the green suit with a light grey turtleneck. It could be new, but I am not quite sure.

Green and grey are indeed a wonderful colourmatch. Perfect this time a year. One reason, why I fell in love with Mary's style is because she master the science of matching colours. Just as she did at the Verdenstimen Live event. Clothes and accessories melted together.

She embraced the style with custom-made green earrings created by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. She has worn them before. Like, when she attended the inauguration of Campus Horsens in September 2021 (here). I feel Mary could be wearing an emerald green ring as well.

The stunning light grey suede ankle boots are from Gianvito Rossi. What an outfit!
