from the Dr article , Mary on her birthday speech to Frederik
"- I wanted to talk to my husband. To touch him and tell him what he is for me. I wanted to invite others - to let them see what I see to take them on the journey that has been ours."

it really was a knockout speech

It was a great speech!

But also well build up and that's why she got her award.

It was build up around a number of anecdotes and very personal, so we kept paying attention, because we didn't want to miss the next chapter of this sweet little personal portrait of Frederik and his family.
That was the explanation given by one of those who were behind awarding Mary.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #47, 2018.
Written by Marianne Singer.

During the speech Mary gave after being presented with the award, she explained how she worked on the speech and what went through her mind up to the speech.

Before the big day Mary had been made aware that it was expected she would give a speech at the gala. And she thought: "Naturally." And at the same time she thought: "Panic!!"
Recovering from this initial feeling she felt very strongly she wanted to tell her husband, the guests and the Danes.
So she pondered for a long time and wrote down the ideas that went through her mind, good and bad.
"I wanted to talk to mt husband, to touch him. To tell him what he is to me. And I wanted to invite everybody. To take them with us on the journey that has been ours. It had to be personal without being too private.
And it's not easy to balance being both open and and honest so that what you say is interesting and can be felt while at the same time stick to formality. The speech wasn't only to my husband, it was also to the future king of Denmark. It wasn't just to be held in our home, it was to be held in the Great Hall at Christiansborg Palace, in front of a hall full of people and a nation looking on."

So from time to time she tested part of the speech on people near to her in order to see whether the balance between humor and being solemn was there. "I would like to combine the frank with the serious and the humorous, because that's how we are as a couple."

The humor was daunting in particular. Because what if it flopped? What if there was silence after the speech rather than laughter? Or worse, it had gone too far?
"So I rehearsed many times. I knew that I would be really nervous when the time came to step up on the rostrum. And I can reveal that this is the only time I have had to break the etiquette and excuse myself during dinner in order to wash my hands."
The challenge/aim was that her nervousness wouldn't get in the way of what she wanted to tell and how she wanted to tell it. In that way the speech became hers, the words, the intonations, the rhythm.

This was actually her first official speech to her husband.

"I'm married to a very versatile husband and in that lay a significant part of my inspiration. I wished to lift the veil for the facets of his, his many disguises.
That would have meant a very long speech, so I had to pick. I opened the speech with just that dilemma. All the things I would like to say, all the things I can say, all the things I can't say and all the things there is room to say. That's how I started the speech and then I ended with the words from a beautiful song, which is one my husband is very fond of. - Of all the things she said, she said... - In that text was the essence of what was the very most important thing for me to say; that the time, the place and the love is for real."

- Let's have a look at the speech, with English subtitles. Just click on the subtitles option in the lower right of the video.

It really was a great speech. Right balance. And a very happy Crown Prince.
Reminds me a little of another great speech in the DRF, Frederik's speech to the Queen for her 70th birthday.

Thanks Muhler for the translations and summaries.

A little detail: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...il-fornem-pris

It was actually the politician Bertel Haarder, who suggested Mary should receive the Speakers award.
Bertel Haarder is not just anybody in Danish politics. He is currently the Nestor in the parliament. (I.e. the MP who has been there the longest.) And despite suffering from bi-polar disorder has has been a minister quite a number of times. At times having been used as the government "firefighter". That is he was put in charge of a ministry that didn't work satisfactory. - Usually because of the minister Bertel Haarder replaced...
A man with a temper, he is in every respect and whether you like him or not, an interesting person.

He has publicly talked about his genuine respect for Mary on several occasions.

Crown Princess Mary is on a two-day visit to Kenya from November 27 to November 28. Together with Ulla Toernaes, Danish Minister for Development she arrived at the Kalama Airstrip in Samburu Country yesterday.

The visit focussed on "the promotion of women's rights and economic independence through local projects":

Thanks, Iceflower.

Yes, no wonder this visit has been kept secret. This area is only some 2-300 km from the Somali border and Kenya has been plagued with incursions across the border as well as terrorist attacks in Nairobi itself.
I see security is heavy and at least two bodyguards are from FET. You can always tell the police officers from PET from the special forces types from FET.

Denmark and Danish representatives is a genuine potential target, because the Danish navy and special forces are assisting Kenya and other east African countries in building up an efficient coast guard. Especially in regards to boarding techniques. Piracy is a menace for local coastal shipping as well. Not least that the international navy presence at sea has all but eradicated pirate attacks at sea.
So a more efficient coast guard in neighboring countries, especially Kenya, is an annoyance for those behind the Somali pirates.
It also means it has become more difficult to infiltrate Kenya by sea, for heavier groups who intends to perform a quick raid. The Kenyan security forces are pretty quick to react, so raiding parties have to be heavily armed in
order to accomplish anything deeper inside Kenya.
Infiltration is an option of course, but much more risky and uncertain for specific operations. There is always a big risk that a hiding pace will be compromised or that an arms cache is intercepted, not to mention that those who are to carry out the raid are being caught.

But back to Mary. it happens quite frequently that raiders cross the border to snatch foreigners close to the borders, whether they are tourists or work on projects. The purpose is of course to extort a ransom.
So foreign dignitaries visiting Kenya only 300 km away is an opportunity. Not so much for getting a ransom. But attacking foreign dignitaries is a goal in itself, and if any dignitaries are killed or wounded, it's a triumph!
Even though Kenya has plenty of bandits of their own, Mary and co is not a desirable target. Bandits are after all interested in getting home in the evening to spend their loot...
The problem is of course that women are in particular vulnerable and in risk of being oppressed, let alone routinely exploited in areas that are insecure. Hence why Mary is as far out as it must be considered safe to go at present.

Thanks Iceflower

Crown Princess Mary is one genuine, loving and hardworking Crown Princess.
I guess she may be on her way home now where the trip has been published.
It's understandable that the trip has not been public.

Today - Wednesday, 28. November 2018

Crown Princess Mary at 'Deliver for Good' Kenya launch in Nairobi, Kenya, also with Katja Iversen, CEO of Women Deliver and Danish Minister for Development Cooperation.

Wonderful pictures indeed!

In Denmark we have seen pictures from the first day and got good information about the two-day visit with the Crown Princess and the Minister for Development, but we have not seen pictures from the second day (although they are wonderful)
This visit was not published and therefore not covered as normally. I can imagine that we maybe will see a reportage from the Crown Princess and Minister for Development's trip at the annual large 'Denmark's Collection' which will be held in February next year.
