I'm always struck by how uniformly positive all different kinds of people are in their descriptions about Mary. She goes out of her way to make people feel at ease, she's easy to talk to, she's knowledgeable, etc. When you think about it, Mary took a risk when she decided to become so deeply involved with her various initiatives. There's no hiding who you really are when you sit down with people for an hour or so and actually talk to them. And I think the risk paid off given how respected and loved she's become in Denmark.

A worthy cause, to be sure. But...red rabbits? What happened to the familiar purple teddy bears?

IMO it's because she chose to become so deeply committed to various causes that paid off. If you are not genuine, if you are not hands on, the it shines through, and you are quickly found out in a small country. I know some detracters of fond of referring to Mary almost super-human PR-bureau, but it doesn't work in a small country, too many people personally someone in the know.

The purple teddy bears are connected with the Free of Bullying project.
This event was about another project of the Mary Foundation. The backbags which were filled here are distributed to children in crisis centers, staying there after having to leave their homes, with their mothers, because of violence in the family.

Unofficial work: Mary Foundation's workshop on Wednesday the 31st May

"In the Mary Foundation we gathered on Wednesday leading professionals for a full day workshop about Greenland. Since the establishment of the Mary Foundation,
it has been natural to include Greenland in our work. We work to combat social isolation - also in Greenland, and as the Crown Princess summed up today's workshop, i
t can only be done through involvement, ownership and action."

Two events again today for Crown Princess Mary.

This morning, Crown Princess Mary hold a conference with the Mary Foundation and Trygfonden about social exclusion in Denmark with the purpose of qualifying the debate on how communities are opened up to the people who are on the edge of or outside the community.

The Mary Foundation Facebook:

"Denmark is a small country and our cohesion is great. Our community has a good starting point, but we must not forget that the community does not necessarily come from itself. The community is our responsibility, we are the community - and we can all do ours to open up the communities by meeting people with openness, respect and positive expectations. "

- The Crown Princess reminded us that we are all in charge of the community as she held the opening speech at the Mary Fund and Tryg Fund's conference on social exclusion today.

Today Crown Princess Mary holds and participates in her annual and popular Free from Bullying Children's Relay with the Mary Foundation in Fælledparken, Copenhagen

Every year the record for the number of children increases - today 2000 children were registered attending in Copenhagen alone.

Lovely HQ pictures:

Just watched a nice feature in the early TV2 News tonight, hope it will be online later...

Mary told (in splendid Danish) that this years's relay had focus on the parents! How they talk to each other, and how they behave etc. Cause the children will learn from them!

Mary also told about her mother-in-law's and father-in-law's Gold Wedding today, and about last Sunday's party. It was very festive and cozy and they had a lovely day.

And here a nice gallery from The Mary Foundation:

ADDED:

An example of how useful a Crown Princess can be:

- The Free From Bullying Project is created by Crown Princess Mary.

- It is highly acknowledged and all studies show that it helps.

- Crown Princess Mary's Free From Bullying is now integrated into 50% of all Denmark's kindergartens and schools. (My children have it integrated in both their nursery and kindergarten)

- Every year, the Mary Foundation and Red Children's popular Free From Bullying Children's Relay set records for the number of participating children - this year, nearly 2000 participating children alone in Copenhagen.

Crown Princess Mary can be a bit proud, can she?

Thanks, Roskilde, Iceflower & Eya

Yes, it was on the news as well, so more clips can be expected.

Mary took part in the warm-up, before the children darted along. She wasn't the only one to present medals for completing the run, but unsurprisingly the longest queue was where Mary was.

I hope you can watch this TV2 video: https://www.tv2lorry.dk/artikel/1800...ej-til-mobning
Where Mary is talking about the purpose of the relay and the focus on how the parents behave. - As described in Roskilde's post above.
She also said the family had had a good and cozy time when they celebrated the Regent Couple's golden anniversary Monday.

------------------------------

She's got that one right!

A number of parents are downright nuts! Some are over-protective curling parents, other are over-ambitious, which is just as bad!
I've had several... frank exchanges of opinions... with some of these parents over the years.
Which is why Mrs. Muhler was in charge of most of the events where we parents were involved with our children at school. She's more diplomatic - until she gets angry.

The Crown Princess looks like she was having fun at the 'Children's Relay Run' in Faelledparken this evening.

Always a lovely event that is enjoyed by all. Mary is a joy with the kids , dancing, giving out the medals , talking to them and of course taking pictures and giving hugs.

Nice to see the race expanding to more locations and the program in more schools.

"It's so easy to walk by. To close the eyes of other people's problems. But the moment we dare to interfere with each other's lives and inquire - also for what is difficult, we grow up as people and as a community, "said the Crown Princess, among other things, in her welcome speech, where the guests were also thanked for their confidence and support over the years."

The older Frederik gets, the handsomer and handsomer he becomes. I think he looks great with stubble. Not a full beard, but just a bit of growth. He has such a baby face, that he kind of needs it. Mary of course, looks amazing. I LOVE that dress. Congrats to HRH for her foundation's 10th anniversary.
