Summary of article in Billed Bladet #46, 2011.
Mary på værft - Mary at the (ship-)yard.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

You may recall that Mary recently named a new frigate in Odense.
She was wearing a red coat from Diane von Furstenberg and Louboutin shoes.

However this frigate will be the last ship build at this shipyard and that meant that the festivities were mixed with sad feelings, not least for the specialists and workers who worked on the ship. They along with everybody else had red sausages and fizzy-water which acted as funeral-beer (*) for the occasion.
Mary chatted with some of the workers: "Are you the ones who have worked on this ship. - That's really a nice piece of work". Mary was dressed in her best and the workers were wearing their work clothes, right down to the hard hats. - All worn with pride.
When Mary left them, one of them said: "Say hello to Frederik".

(*) Funeral beer (gravøl = litterally grave-beer). As you can probably guess that's an ancient costum here in DK and it is still very much used not least in rural areas.
After a funeral, those who have attended the service are invited for coffee and cookies afterwards - and a wee dramm or two as well.
Beforehand, they were treated to beer, sometimes a lot of it! Called "drinking funeral beer".
So the whole thing is often referred to as funeral beer. - And if the mood is good with the deseased remembered fondly, it's referred to as having been a "good funeral beer".

EGMUN stands for Espergærde Gymnasium Model United Nations, it's an annual youth conference that
simulates United Nations conferences - politics, enviroment, security and human rights are the main
topics.


Here's a nice gallery without watermarks:

Thanks a lot for the gallery!
So, not a dress but a blouse.

I do love the first picture in the gallery, it's so nice to see all those happy faces! Mary certainly brightened someone's day.

Thanks, Iceflower

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #10, 2012.
Vi skal hjælpe hinanden - We must help eachother.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Mary was one of the speakers at the European Handicap Congress in Copenhagen this Monday.
The chairman of the European Handicap Forum is Yannis Yardakastanis. He is blind and as such the notes to his speech were written in braille.
The first deaf member of the European Parliament, Adam Kosa, was also a speaker. He used sign language, when he gave his speech.

As you can tell from the pictures above, Mary was welcomed by young people who are suffering from various handicaps. (The caption and the text is a mess, so I can't figure out who is who).

Mary was introduced to CanConnect, a simplified, and thus handicap friendly, version of Skype. It was student helper Otto Enghoff, who explained it to Mary. And he admitted somewhat falbbergatsed afterwards that in the middle of it all he caught himself using informal you to Mary. When it dawned on him that it was the Crown Princess he was talking to.

The Central Handicap Council's new office building is currently under construction in Høje Taastrup west of Copenhagen. That building which will house 20 handicap organisations will be the most handicap friendly building in the world when it's inargurated on 12. December. Mary will hopefully be present.

Mary's earrings were from JEWLSCP.

I love the idea of accessible version of Skype. I have a visual impairment, and sometimes it's hard to use certain programs because they have too many graphics and are very cluttered (same thing with certain web sites). I have friends who use JAWS (speech software which makes the computer read what's on the screen), and they really have a hard time using things like Skype and some applications on facebook. It's great that Mary is supporting this cause. The more awareness about different exceptionalities, the better the world will be (and hopefully people won't be so fearful of approaching a person who is a little bit different).

Perhaps the person who is a little bit different should consider the feelings of those who want to help. Just recently, during a visit from Aust in Paris, I was made to feel unwelcomed by someone who had a hearing loss. I attempted to use my Auslan skills to help them get their message across but was told, rather unkindly, that my help was not required. I really feel that it's a two way street and I will not be offering my assistance again.

Thank you, Iceflower

This meeting became very dramatic. Billed-Bladet - Marys sikkerhedsvagt udløste stor-alarm hos politiet

While Mary was at the meeting. Outside the public glare. One of the PET officers present unknowingly triggered the alarm. From the police headquarters they tried to contact the officer but in vain and as such a large police force was directed to the Bella Centre.
The area was sealed off and the entrances covered by police.

By then the police learned that it was all a mistake. A technical glitch.

ADDED: Have tried to find more on this story elsewhere. So far no luck. - But then again the papers rarely write anything at all about the security around the DRF, not even about the firealarm when William and Kate visited some months ago. That was only mentioned in BB and in one other media.
