A nice longer video from BB:
Kronprinsesse Mary svingede spaden | BILLED-BLADET

In fact, Mary was supposed to only plant one tree, but Mary took on her cap on her head and end up with having planted more than 15 trees together with the children. BB's journalist joked: You will soon have planted a whole forest.

She has a very packed calender, but busy or not, we are always guaranteed a 110% committed and happy Mary

Thanks Polyesco & Roskilde.

Here is a BB video of Mary attending the meeting and giving a speech about being open about mental illnesses: Kronprinsesse Mary inspirerer | BILLED-BLADET

The man seen at the end of the video is former PM, Poul Nyrup, whose daughter suffered from a mental illness and IIRC she committed suicide.
He speaks about how important it is to break down the taboo regarding mental illness and in that respect Mary is crucial because it matters when she address an issue.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #46, 2015.
Written by the uprooted Trine Larsen.

Recently Mary went to Albertslund a part of the greater Copenhagen area accompanied by Ziggy.
Here she was to plant the first tree in a new forest as a part of an ongoing project called Replant the Planet. Danish schoolchildren are issued a tree or two and plant it somewhere. That makes the whole project more personal for them. (My daughter planted a tree a couple of years ago and we have indeed checked that "her tree" still stands).
35.000 trees have been planted nation wide (I believe it must be this year) and the aim is that some 25 % of DK will eventually be forest.

Anyway, about 100 children were eagerly waiting for Mary, to chat with her, ask questions and have selfies taken. Ziggy got a lot of attention as well! The dog was a little overwhelmed, but patient in regards to being petted. No doubt she's used to it. Nevertheless after having been held by Mary's LiW while a tree was planted the now little stressed out dog needed a little reassuring from "mother" before being taken back to the more calm car.

Mary was actually only supposed to have planted the first tree in the new forest but after having done so she asked: "Shouldn't we try and see if we can plant a whole row"? So Mary ended up helping planting another fifteen trees.

Our reporter asked her: Crown Princess Mary, you (formal you) have almost planted a whole forest today...
Mary: "Ha, ha, no, I think we are far from that, but we did plant a lot of trees.
It was lovely. Nice, but it's also an important project. That we teach children how important trees and forests are for the climate. So that they learn how it affects the environment and how our lives are affected by the climate changes".

And that was the start of what will eventually be known as the Princess Grove.

Probably, because in a few years it will be Christian's turn to plant a tree.

Mary has arrived to the TV2 Christmas Show:

BB article:

I can't wait for Christmas... I saw in the updated royal calendar today that it will be Mary who will be responsible for turning on the lights on the big Christmas tree at the Copenhagen City Hall Square this year



Beautiful wearing of course the Christmas color red. Think it's this recycled red dress from Mary Fonden's Christmas reception last year:

Kongehuset has posted pictures from the TV2 Christmas Show last night:

Isn't the blond woman behind Mary, Marie Louise Skeel (Malou)? She and husband Jørgen are probably one of F&M's oldest and closest friends and they live near Aalborg (North Jutland) where the Christmas Show took place.

Maybe Mary has slept home at Holger and Malou Skeel this night. Mary could jump on the afternoon airplane from Copenhagen to Aalborg yesterday, but there hasn't been any airplanes going home again late at night.

Some of Mary's birthday pictures of Christian has she taken in their garden and it's Jørgen and Malou Skeel who F&M often spend New Years Eve with.

Some pictures of Frederik and Mary and children with Malou and Jørgen and children:

Very likely.
The estate owned by the Skeel family is located some 20-30 minutes away from Aalborg.

Ny bro bliver opkaldt efter kronprinsesse Mary - Indland

The Ministry of Transportation has announced that a new bridge will named after Mary.
After a public vote a new bridge over Roskilde Fjord will be named Kronprinsesse Marys bro = Crown Princess Mary's bridge.
The bridge will be placed next to the current bridge, named Kronprins Frederiks Bro - after Frederik IX.

The bridge will open in 2019 - and presumably opened by Mary. - Should M&F have become king and queen by then, it should be no big problem changing the name to Dronning Marys Bro.

It's the first time in 15 years a bridge was named here in DK, and that was the Øresund Bridge between DK and Sweden.
However the last time a bridge was named after a member of the DRF was back in 1963, when a bridge was named Frederik IXs Bro.

Thanks Muhler for this. I am surprised not named any other bridge since 1963 with the name of a member of the royal family. I think it is very honorable for Mary it.
