Thanks for the many pics and clips.

I noticed a couple of things in the video posted by Roskilde.

The first was the obviously improvised initial speech Mary gave.
She has a pronounced accent but apart from that it was flawless Danish, in native speed without a single grammatical error.

Later on during the interview, she made two, only two, very minor grammatical mistakes. Of the kind natives also makes from time to time. (And probably because she was thinking while talking). As for speed, well, you can tell yourself without knowing a word of Danish that she spoke pretty fast.

The Mary Foundation informs that there this year was a record number of participants:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

By the way, The Mary Foundation launched yesterday evening the facebook page about The Mary Foundation's work and events (the page is run by the staff of the The Mary Foundation)

Want to see a real Crown Princess playing air guitar?

Here's a nice video from today:



Another BT article:
Fire-årige Siri ignorede Kronprinsessens bekymring - Royale | www.bt.dk

About little Siri, almost 4 years old, and wearing a princess tiara. She was lucky to chat with Mary several times during the relay race.

- She said I looked really pretty - Siri told BT's reporter.

Even before the race started Mary spotted the little Siri and her tiara and asked worried whether she was sure that the tiara would remain in place during the race.

That was Siri sure it would, and she then ran the relay race in the best princess style and crossed the finish line still wearing the tiara on the head. Here she received another little chat with Mary who handed out her medal and praised her for both having been so good to run.. and to have retained the tiara on her head.
Thanks for the links, Mary is certainly beaming and happy in these photos, and the video of her playing air guitar is just great to see. I like that the parents all join in as well.
The photos of Mary in the second post are really lovely, and the little girl in the BT article is so sweet, and still having the tiara on at the end of the race certainly deserved a medal and a further chat from the Crown Princess.

ADDED:

I've noticed that Mary at some of the pictures are wearing this colorful pearl necklace. I guess it is maybe one she has received as a gift from one of the children?

Thanks for the additional pics and gifs.

Normally Mary's PET protection stands out like lighthouses, but this time they were really difficult to spot! So much that I wondered whether she didn't have any. But they were there, two of them.
Giving her a wide berth, only closing in at the start and finishing line.

Good, it would be silly to go without protection. There are too many nutcases around.
It's good to see how well she interacted with the children. Mr. Beard probably attracting the youngest and those a little older aiming towards Mary at the finishing line.
For Danish members in particular: I noticed Bubber was there too. (He was the one with the starters gun, who was almost stampeeded by the children. He litterally had to jump for cover. ).

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #25, 2014.
Written by our running reporter, Lisbeth Grube.

Mary started the Free From Bullying 1.000 meter relay run in Fælledparken in Copenhagen last Saturday. 1.500 children with additional family members were there.
After giving a short speech and having taken part in the warming up, which included forming a circle with four girls to dance, it was time to start the run.
After which Mary rushed to the finishing line, along with the children's favorite Mr. Beard in order to pick up medals because the first children were already darting towards the finishing line.
Mary and Mr. Beard handed out medals to the children as they finished the run, as Mary explained: "It's a great joy to give every single child a medal. You should give them a little word on the way".
And that she did. "Was it a good run"? "Are you tired"? But Mary also got something in return, someone put a homemade necklass around her neck. Lots of children also wished to pose with Mary so the time schedule soon went completely down the drain.

Before the run Mary also had a chat with various chidlren, among them Siri, who is almost four years old. She insisted on wearing a tiara while running, actually she also wanted to run in a princess-dress her mother interjected. Mary asked Siri if she thought the tiara would remain on her head, but apparantly Siri thought so.

None of Mary's children were present this year.

Q: How do you involve your own chidlren in Free From Bullying?
Mary: "They have Free From Bullying programmes in their school, so they know about it and they know about the tools which are a part of the programme. I can tell from the way they speak with their friends and from what is going on at the school.
It's very important that we all engage ourselves in the school-life of our children. In how they thrive and how they are".

About the day Mary said: "It warms my heart". (*)

(*) Very understandable Mary speaks in Zealandic/Copenhagener dialect here. Litterally she said: "I get warm around my heart". A Jutlander like myself would say: "I get warm in my heart".
The same thing about say cold hands:
In Zealandic: "I freeze around my hands".
In Jutlandic: "I freeze my hands".
English speakers among you can judge which version would be more natural for you to use if you were suddenly dropped in Denmark.
- Just a little detail for the nerds.

Mary and Bubber having a great time. The two have met each other many times before, both to all the Free-For-Bullying relay races, but also at many other events during a year.

Thanks, Roskilde.

I can't understand why some women are worried about crows feet.

Crows feet are beautiful. - In fact I'm more worried about people age 40+ who haven't got at least a clear visibly hint of crows feet.

How nice of you to have that attitude, Muhler. They used to be called ''laugh lines'' which is much nicer.

Good name.

Here in DK they are litterally called smilerynker = smile-wrinckles.

It would indeed be a worthy cause, however I wonder whether Mary's advisors would discourage her from touching that particular subject as it can become controversial. - Even though political correctness hasn't become so oppressive here as in other countries.

It is a sad fact that more than half of the women who live at shelters come from immigrant families, especially immigrants from certain cultures.
It is also a sad fact that there has been a number of honor-killings here in DK as well, and also severe beatings of youths who do not conform to the cultural norms of the old country.

That will be a tricky subject to touch!
On the other hand the DRF and Mary in particular enjoy a lot of respect among many immigrants and what they do is followed closely, so Mary's word might actually carry a lot of weight.

- On a personal note I think that if you believe honor killings, wife beating and beating up your children is acceptable, then go live somewhere else.
Apart from sexually abusing your children I can hardly come up with something more dishonourable than killing your own child. It is utterly incomprehensible to me.

The Mary Foundation is such a brilliant idee.

And I have a huge respect for the thoughts behind it. Inclusion on all levels.

More of Mary's work behind the scenes (not written in the royal calendar) but nevertheless a very important work and actually right now the top story at BT.dk (one of our country's most read newspapers)

Today, Mary visited 'Mødrehjælpen' (The Mothers Aide) one of her patronages.
The Mary Foundation is also involved with this patronage through their joint project 'Advice for Life.'

Pictures from Maryfonden's facebook site:

After have being shown around in Mødrehjælpen's rooms it's time to a meeting with some of the many professionals who work with the economic and the legal and social counseling project 'Advice for Life'.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.n...3a99964b046a8c

Mary meets during today's visit to Mødrehjælpen one of the more than 2,000 women who have received help from the Mary Foundation. The woman tells how the advice has been a turning point in her life.
https://scontent-b-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/...60746441_n.jpg



Article and picture from BT.dk:
De flygter fra voldelig partner: Så mange har Mary hjulpet - Royale | www.bt.dk

Telling that more than 2,000 women now have received counseling from The Mary foundation and Mødrehjælpen's 'Advice for Life.'

The project is aimed at women who have been forced to flee their homes because of a violent partner. 'Advice for Life' is all about that battered women can get advice and guidance from both social, economic adviser and lawyers, so the first and foremost to provide an overview of their situation and then can get on with their lives.

Great job Mary.
Love that they show the behind the scenes work.

Cute picture of Ziggy following Mary : )

This is the kind of pictures we need to see of Frederik's work too.
Right now he is visiting panels on entrepreneurs and innovation of Danish companies in Silicon Valley and all I have seen are pictures on Twitter : (
