[QUOTE}Muhler, I don't know what cyclists are like where you live in Denmark, but when I was biking in Copenhagen this summer I was AMAZED at how polite the cyclists were They stopped at stoplights, they indicated left or right turns and were extremely helpful to this tourist who often lost her way in the maze of Copenhagen streets! Do please know how lucky you are in Denmark with such cyclists; things in Amsterdam, where I also cycle, are like the wild West in comparison Regarding the helmet issue, I do wear one in Toronto but only because the drivers are so very preoccupied with their own lives and cellphones, often forgetting to watch where they are going so that cycling is a real health risk at times[/QUOTE]

Crown Princess Mary works with over 25 charities and organisations | Daily Mail Online

An article about Mary in Daily Mail.
It's actually more a veiled attack on Catherine. - Whether that is fair or not is outside the topic of this thread, but the pics of Mary are nice.


I'm glad you had a good experience in Copenhagen, Gerry
Cyclists out here in the countryside actually tend to be careful, simply out of necessity due to dark roads most of the year. - It's the odd intoxicated moped that can be a concern, transporting it's occupant on an not always predictable course towards the nearest supermarket for liquid supplies.
But come weekends... With herds of maniac exercise cyclists roaming the roads, wearing too tight outfits for their stature, completely oblivious to anything else, because they all believe they are taking part in Tour de France. - At such times you really find the bad guys hunting the odd movie hero with a combine-harvester quite likable.

The Daily Mail cites our thread on Mary's patronages and charities (here) as their source for her list of charities halfway down the article, and links to that thread as a "Read More" at the bottom of the article.

Glad to see my thread titles are deemed adequate enough for a copy paste job!

Odd that the DM has ignored the UK's Duchess of Cornwall in this article who like CP Mary is the patron of several organizations. After all Camilla is the wife of the heir-to-the-throne. Kate is his daughter-in-law.

It is great that she has so many charities but I am sure she has a lot of aids helping her with this, she is not doing it alone, now and then she gets all nice dress up and pay a nice visit that promote the charity . I think a lot of times she is like an honorary member that give the charity publicity , so that way with her precense help the charity! and of course it is great any way she does it!

Yes, if comparisons must be made its the Duchess of Cornwall who is Mary's counterpart in Britain. Both in position and years married.

She does have a lot of help, as do all royals.
But Mary does more than just show up, she attends many behind the scenes meetings, that we often hear about after the fact or when a photo or an article pops up, if anything at all.
Mary seems very involved in what she does.
And the people seem to really make a connection with her
(Same applies to Frederik imo)

Lots of aids? There's the Chief of Court and Mary has a secretary.

According to the Prince of Wales' website Camilla is patron of 87 organizations and charities. She also regularly does additional charity work and visits, both public and private.

Which obviously doesn't take away from any of the good work CP Mary has done and continues to do, since it's not a competition.

Thank you Camelot for sharing this information. I was surprised to read how many patronages/charities that both Mary and Camilla have in common in their respective nations.

Not mentioned though is that Mary also has four young children to care for that should also be noted. Please this is not against Camilla she does a excellent job and I like her a lot and she is one of the few royals that I really take an interest in.

I think part of this is because Camilla has always tried to play the part of supporting wife to Charles rather than do lots of her own, individual, engagements.

What I mean is that each charity has employees working for it, Like her ex lady in waiting ,Carolina, now she in working in one of her charities, so I imagine She probably is of course involve and give directions but each charity has employees that work for it.

Ok....Thanks. I think I understand a bit better now. I thought you meant people employed by Mary working in the "charities".

Yes, of course, all her patronages (if you mean them) have employees and/or volunteers. Mary has only one "charity", the Mary Foundation, which also has employees. Caroline Heering did work for the 'Mary Foundation' for some years but stopped working for it a couple of years ago. Since then, Caroline is only a member of the board.

I t would be impossible for any person to take care of 25 charities by themselves, so like you said , some people volunteer and another have a job there , a team work, of course she takes care but not all by herself, she probably direct a lot!

She is only a supporter of these charities isn't she? I believe the only one she is personally involved in is the Mary Foundation, the others are charities/organisations that existed before her involvement that she has agreed to be a public supporter of.

Of course. I don't think anyone said these were Mary's own creations and works at them herself alone.
All royals agree to be patron of some organizations.

Mary created the Mary Foundation but she is also involved in many. We have seen that she puts alot of effort in her work and adds personal involvement. I would say she does alot more than just show up.
We can see the people are highly satisfied with their crown princess

Mary and the other members of the DRF are involved in their protections to whatever extent they want.
That is that they are briefed about what is going on, they meet with representatives of the organizations, get to know them and also meet unofficially with persons these organizations deal with.
Then they discuss how and when to represent/promote/put focus on the protections. So I'd say most happens behind the scenes.
