Summary of article in Billed Bladet #10, 2014.
Written by Marianne Singer.

When Mary visited the Family House in Høje Taastrup and the adults listened to speeches, Mads age three, stepped away from his mother, Stephanie, and walked up to Mary. Looked at her and announced loudly to all present who may have failed to notice: "Ooi, there's a Princess". People bust out laughing, including Mary who said: "I blush/I get all shy".

The Family House has been established in Co-operation between Høje Taastrup municipality and the organisation Mother's Aide (Mødrehjælpen) for which Mary is patron.
Here the mothers can recieve councelling and guidance in among other things in how to begin an education.

The visit lasted an hour and afterwards Mary said: "What has made the biggest impression on me are the young mothers who have come here and been given tools and skills in how to create a life for themselves and their children. They are incredibly glad for the place, get help (*) in getting started on an education and an occupation and also in being able to handle to role as mother.
We had plenty of time to chat and share experiences today".

Mary added that she has never been a member of Mother's Aide group, but instead relied on her friends. (**)

(*) As you can tell Mary has fully adopted the native habit of incomplete and shortened sentences.

(**) Mrs. Muhler and I attended a couple of such meetings when we were pregnant... and it was more of an experience to me than of particular use.
It seemed to me that you could divide the attendees into two groups:
Those who wore lilac diapers around their necks, sitting on the floor drinking herbal-tea and singing Kumbayah. That is when they weren't discussing their feelings. With the emasculated fathers in the background who also discussed their feelings, washing it down with more herbal-tea, wishing it was beer.
And those women who resembled dragons (personality wise) and about whom I found myself wondering how they had managed to find a man even remotely willing to impregnate them.

Indeed Roskilde.

Mads won the Aww-ain't-that-sweet-award of the day.

Here is a pic of Mary to the movie premiere of the Asger Jorn movie: https://app.box.com/s/8a1xwqqe7p7rqur8a1nz

BB informs us that her clutch is from Carlend Cph.
Her shoes from Gianvito Rossi.
And her earrings with green Onyx (whatever that is) and diamonds are from JewlsCph.

Mary will tomorrow afternoon (3pm) come to Roskilde. My city. And children and I will go see/greet her.

I'll try to take some pictures, but I know I in the situation will prefer to put the camera away and just see her



She will visit and open a new exhibition at the famous Viking Ship Museum:

That is a more than plausible explanation.

Hi everyone.

Just got home after seeing Mary

A big, lovely experience to see her in real life.

I think we were about 40-50 people and we got us some nice small talk while we waited. About our Crown Princess as well. And I can only say, Mary's popularity among people can't be denied.

I had a good talk with two police officers as well.

Finally Mary arrives and a little girl, Olivia, is brave and walks with her tiny legs and a red rose in her hand past all in the crowd and gives Mary her rose. The little girl talks and talks and Mary smiles and answers all she can.

Daughter, niece and I all got a smile, eye contact and a wave.

Nice experience to see and hear her "live". It's certainly not the last time we will do that.

I have noticed that many say this and now I'll say it too. For the heck, she's beautiful! She is beautiful in pictures, but they can't describe her in the reality. She looks radiant and her brown eyes sparkles when she looks at you.

Thanks Roskilde for sharing.
It is always good to have someone on the spot and to have their insights and pictures.

Mary looks lovely and from information that I have read on the exhibition it is one that I would like to visit.

I wonder how come a lady-in-waiting was not with CP Mary? I did not see Caroline Heering or Tanja Dorky? Instead, a man in uniform (adjutant) accompanied CP Mary. I wonder what is the significance of that?

Thank you Roskilde for your on the spot reporting! when I saw her in NYC a few years ago she appeared to have very rosy cheeks, an awful lot of blush, which didn't look like a lot in the pictures of the event. Did you notice the same thing?

Two reasons, I believe.
Normally if Mary's LiW, Tanja Doky, is unavailable she would bring her secretary, as you point out.
Recently and more and more often Mary has instead (or also) brought an adjutant.
So firstly this could be for practical reasons for a relatively simple and short visit where an adjutant will be a sufficient personal assistant.

Secondly, M&F don't have personal adjutants, they borrow one from QMII's staff af adjutants. So it is also IMO a subtle indication of how much M&F have taken over. The Regent Couple are almost constantly accompanied by an adjutant. And now quietly, so are M&F. At least when on the job.
It's only natural, as M&F have practically taken over in most functions, except those where the Monarch is directly required.

I'm fully aware of that

Thank you SElizabeth, and to all other for your kind replies. I got some good pictures, although I remembered to enjoy the moment without looking through a camera lens

And no, no lady-in-waiting this time. Muhler, good explanation.

I had me a good chat with some journalists as well. Included BB's Marianne Singer. Nice woman. She told a lot that I will post here in the thread over the next few days.

Busy as always, Mary has two event this noon.

First Mary will participates as a patron of the 'School for 200 years' anniversary at the 'Schools Song days' in the Concert Hall in DR Byen:

Se og Hør gives us the first picture and article
Mary begyndte dagen med skønsang - SE og HØR
