What a brilliant experience that must have been for you, MaggieDenmark. Mary seems to make a few visits to Roskilde and the areas around it, so that must be practical for you. Thanks for sharing your day with us and the photos are great! You got some good clear shots of Mary. It looks like you were quite close to her.

(Then Mary sat down with the read-seeking children in honor of the many attendees photographers she said with a smile "Hey, I must have a book too" and pulled a book from the bookcase.)

VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary til børnebogsfest i Roskilde | Billed Bladet

And video from BB
Okay let's have a look on what Mary and the two children says in the video:

To start with Mary and the children count down from 10 to declare " The Summer Book" for open. Evidently the children count too fast so they suddenly are at "5" even though it says "6" on the screen. Mary tries to help with her fingers.

Mary told the children:
"Soon, you all will begin your summer vacation and I know that it's something my children looks very much forward to and I'm sure you does as well. To having time off from school, to pack the alarm clock, the school bag and school books away and instead find your swimsuit and enjoy the long bright days and evenings. For summer vacation is freedom, freedom to do exactly what you want. Almost." (I think she here after told about reading books in the vacation)

Olivia and Tobias? How was it to meet Mary?
- It was pretty cool and she asked about some nice things. It was just really fantastic.

Olivia, how much do you know about Mary and her family?
- I've read some books about her and I think she helps many people. I just think she's a good princess.

What about you, Tobias?
- I have also read books about her. And I also know something about Prince Henrik.

BB journalist Ulrik Ulriksen at the end:
Crown Princess Mary, what books do your children read during the summer vacation? - I think I will see what's in the bags we just had recieved. So perhaps a selection from there.

As Marta mentioned, it's my impression that a good deal of books are being read home at F&M. Both F&M themselves and books being reading aloud for the children.

It's so great that CP Mary brings attention to this important cause. One of our former First Ladies also promoted it. Reading to and with your children is one of the best things you can do as a parent, and the rewards are so many. One of my sons is now a reference librarian and the other is a teacher. The teacher even refuses to buy a Kindle - he doesn't want to contribute to the decline of the printed word.

Yes...She looks absolutely fantastic! And above all...she looks very happy! And how wise to promote reading when the children are about to go off on summer holiday! This is far more important than the skirt CP Mary is wearing (IMO)!

To the Danish posters...when do summer holidays start for school children?

Before Mary went to Roskilde, Mary participated in the Young Global Leaders' seminar about 'Efficient Energy Deployment' in Copenhagen:

I sometimes think about... it impossible can't have been easy to go through what she had. I dare not think about how much pressure, frustration and privation there must have been along the way (same for the others external CP's) From the bottom of my heart it warms me to see how happy she always looks. She looks like she is landed right there where she is happy.

The summer holiday for our children will start next Friday. And will end on August 11.

Well done MaggieDenmark! Great photos and first hand reporting. When you said you were shaken-well I was the same after my encounter last year.

I bet you keep this in your memories forever!!

A month later the Crown Prince Couple will be starting on their next official trip to Canada, visiting Ottawa and Toronto! Do board members have any idea of the program yet?

Thank you! Let's hope they also work on Danish food in Toronto; many of us remember with nostalgia the Danish food Centre on Bloor Street, now (too) long gone!

In these hours Mary presents "The Hans Christian Andersen Litterature Award" in Odense Concert Hall, Odense.

Here is three very first pictures taken from the tv-screen:

BB article: Forsinket kronprinsesse Mary hyldede Salman Rushdie | Billed Bladet

BB tells that due to traffic problems Mary was delayed. Rushdie's writings have been considered controversial in several parts of the world which has given him as many enemies as fans and has made the security in Odense these days very high. Mary said that she is an admirer of Rushdie's writing which she told him when they met at an informal photo session after the show.

Right now Mary participates in the event "Invest in women and girls - it brings progress for all" in Landstingssalen, Christiansborg Palace. It's only an hour since she arrived, but BB is fast with a picture already:

Interesting article about Mary's work behind the scenes:
Kvinder på dagsordenen i København - Nationalt | www.b.dk

With the support of Crown Princess Mary has Denmark won the contest of becoming the host country for a major international conference on women's rights.
Our Minister of Trade and Development, Mogens Jensen says that: "The Crown Princess has worked hard to get women's conference to Denmark and she has made a powerful lobbying and I think it has had an impact on that it landed in Denmark and not in the Netherlands, which was our main competitor in the end."
