A great video clip of today's event. If that doesn't excite you, the reporter was able to speak to Mary for a bit. She has a lovely voice and the news clip details the event with Mary's thoughts on top of it. Plus some lovely photos courtesy of the fantastic blog, Mary en Maxima.

Thanks for the great clip GlitteringTiaras
Cute final comment from Mary; one of the prizes - for the school at Nørrebro - was in appreciation of this school's ability to make it's pupils better and faster readers than the average pupil in Denmark - in spite of the fact that 3 out of 4 pupils have immigrant backgrounds. And asked Mary did admit that the Danish language had been one of the most difficult things for her; when the interviewer said 'but you are quite good!' - she beamed a 'Tusind tak' (thank you so much).
Mary still has an accent of course, but she seems more easily fluent - and appears more secure - each time we hear her speak Danish.

No problem.

I must say Mary's Danish is pretty good; glad to see she's moving forward, for the language is not easy to master.

In the meantime, this new blog, by someone... I have no idea who, has some beautiful photos of Mary highlighting her daily events.

Enjoy!

Still think her outfit looked good - love the jacket
The outfit his nice. I think shaking hands and smilling is a very important thing to do when we are a Royal.

Thank you dazzling! I loved these pictures!
Mary is lovely and it seems, by her face expression, life was going so well for her.

She talks about importance of integration, of being able to live together - and that this was the celebration of these efforts.
And she mentioned the importance of language - and admitted that this has been a difficult thing for herself as well (I have mentioned her language comments in post #59 in this thread if you want to see it )
