Good grief!! how to confuse an internet tourist with one name. I thought the different spelling of the name was just a quirk of a local councils doing. Fredensborg I don't have a problem with. Okay, so I will take note of Hillerod as being where the castle sits. Thanks Faster B for the clarification. Here in Australia we just have names of places that are difficult to get your teeth and tongue around.

...we don't want to get into towns in North Zealand then which also start with 'Frederik' - Frederiksværk, Frederikssund

The Danish Foreign Ministry informs that Mary on 10-12 January will visit Myanmar, accompanied by the new Minister for Developement, Rasmus Helveg.

On behalf of Danish Refugee Council (DRC), she will visit refugees in the north and most poor part of Myanmar. The focus will especially be on female refugess and their plight.
She will also visit a clinic in the city of Yangon, run by the DRC. The clinic helps women in relation to pregnancies, giving birth, health, and also in connection with HIV cases.
The Danish relief effort is expected to be raised from 105 million DKK to 120 million DKK next year, so we can expect that she will be well recieved.

This is currently hitting the news so we can expect more details to surface later today as it is picked up by the various papers.

http://um.dk/da/forsidenyheder/newsd...2-AA8E20118506 In Danish

- This is very much in line with the two yearly royal reviews on TV2 and DR1, both were consistent in the analazys of Mary's work. I.e. she has gone really heavy weight in regards to the issues she has chosen to help put focus on.
These issues are to a considerable degree political and borderline controversial (more so actually than any other member of the DRF have been allowed to beforehand) but she is obviously trusted by the politicians not to put her foot wrong.

Thanks Muhler,

The short, but nevertheless important trip to Burma next year has now hit the other media.

ADDED:

The little trip is in connection with Denmark's annual big national fundraising "Danmarks Indsamlingen 2014" which will be aired on TV three weeks later.

Both Mary and Frederik has somehow participated in our national fundraising the last many years.

Great for Mary to bring focus.
I believe Frederik also visited Bangladesh a few years back, I forget with which organization

HRH Crown Princess traveling with Development Rasmus Petersen to Myanmar on 10 - 12th January 2014. The visit focused on women difficult conditions in the impoverished Southeast Asian country, which after 50 years of military junta has been opened up to democratic reform , international development cooperation and foreign investment.

Crown Princess Mary is the patron of UNFPA and the Danish Refugee Council and visiting among other things one of UNFPA's centers and IDP camps supported by the Danish Refugee Council. The visit also focuses on a project that will be supported by the Danish Collection 2014, which takes place on 1 februar 2014.

The program can be found here

Thanks Polyesco.

I think we can safely expect the red carpet to be rolled out for Mary.
A BT article with a little background info: Udviklingsminister på første besøg i Myanmar - Politik | www.bt.dk

This is the newly appointed Minister for Developement's first visit on the job.
Rasmus Helveg (*) has basically promised the government of Myanmar that a 30 year old loan from DK will be waived. That is old praxis when a country live up to certain standards in regards to political developement. I.e. basic human and political rights. The purpose is that the country, in this case Myanmar, shouldn't be burdened by more problems than necessary in the process of carrying out political reforms.
The loan to be waivered is for 295 million DKK or some 70 million $. There are of course certain criteria to be met and it's basically one of the tasks of the Minister to check that those are met.
- While Mary takes care of the PR side of things.

(*) One of the odd things about DK is that wellknown people like politicians are often referred to by their middle name. In this case Helveg. Presumably because it's easier to tell them apart that way. Don't ask me for a general rule, because I'll owe you an answer for a long time...

Thanks Fairy Tale.

And DR1 have the first videos: VIDEO DR i Burma: Mary diskuterer sex og beskyttelse med de unge | Nyheder | DR

One of the main problems in Myanmar is that the subject of sex and contraception is a big taboo. It is simply not talked about. as such young people lack a basic understanding of what it even means to engage in a sexual relationship. The results are teenage pregnancies (and of course a basic knowledge let alone knowledge about the symptoms of sexually transmitted deseases as well).

In the video Mary talks about how she is going to learn from the mouths of the youth workers themselves about the problems they face and what issues they discuss, or rather have problems taking up.

Myanmar is opening up for tourism. (And we all know what it means when a poor country opens up for tourists, the sex industry opens up as well).

ADDED: A gallery from BT: http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billedern...yanmar#slide-1
Pics #9 & 10 show Mary and the woman telling each other how many children they have.
The man sitting next to Mary is the Minister for Developement, Rasmus Helveg.

Thanks for the pics and videos so far

Billedbladet informs us that Mary landed in Myanmar this morning local time. After a few hours at the hotel where she changed clothes, etc. the official program began... I hope she is one of those who can sleep in an airplane

Look forward to follow the three days in Myanmar, it's an interesting country with problems that need to be highlighted. And then this is the first trip together with Denmark's new minister for Development.

Another thing... Mary looks nice and healthy. And like to see princesses sitting cross-legged in casual flower pants, t-shirt and bare feet and discussing sex and contraception with the young people, which is two large taboos in the country. It doesn't happen so often.

Mary looks good in the twitter photos.

Sleeping on the plane; no problem at all when you travel first class like Mary does! Just stretch out on the comfy seat-come-bed, and snore away.

Good coverage in tonights news on both of our largest main channels. Both the DR1 and TV2 news has a journalist and photographer with Mary in Myanmar and Mary were interviewed underway in the clips.

As far as I know, TV2 don't put their news online any longer, but here you can find the clip from DR1
TV AVISEN - 10. jan. 2014 | DR1 | DR

Looking at the programme for tomorrow I guess Mary went to bed early last night, at tomorrow the first item on the program is 7 o'clock in the morning.

And a video from day 1
