She does a great work for the rights of children and for young girls. I admire her work. Children marriages is one of the most abuse of children. Children should play, go to school, grow up in a harmonical milieu.

Princess Mabel was interviewed shortly at a document shown on Monday at finnish TV Channel MTV about Martti Ahtisaari, the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 2008 and the former President of Finland.
Princess Mabel was interviewed because she has worked with president Ahtisaari at the Elders Group.

indeed. she is a passionate, involved person. my opinion of her definitely changed massively since she first married into the family. i am so impressed she continues to use her position in the best way to inspire change, and didn't just lock herself up following the death of friso and just attended red carpet events every now and again.
