Mary's school event got much more coverage than Frederik's event on the same day. I wonder why. Is she really that much more popular than he?

I've heard that Mary is the second most popular member of the DRF after Queen Margrethe, so I would think that's why her event on Friday got more coverage than Frederik's.

mary is very popular..and so are frederik..in the polls it is always mary or margrethe or frederik who are in the top..so im pretty sure it all comes down to the event..mary on a school with many happy kids who takes photos and welcome her like was she justin bieber..frederik on the other hand had a more "boring" event if you understand me. when frederik are out to school sport visit or so he gets great coverage just like mary :) just look at when he opened the half marathon :)

An addition to the calendar:

I can see Frederik now has been added to tonight's event and will accompany his wife to the dinner.

Tonight, Mary will as patron host a dinner for actors related to sustainable fashion during the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014 in Frederik VIII's Palace. The Crown Prince will participate.

I'm all in favour of anything "sustainable", and I'm looking forward to finding out what "sustainable fashion" means.

AFAIK, this event has nothing to do with Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF).

Yes I saw that he was added a couple of days ago. Nice
I think Frederik has worked in the area of sustainability.

About 50 guests were invited.

Well that's what I thought, too (=it has nothing to do with it). Thanks for the reply! :)

Fred's brown tie; why brown to go with the suit? Mary's dress is blah and nothing to write home about. The lady on the right is wearing an absolutely beautiful, elegant and classy lace dress.

It will certainly be a busy day for Mary today. She will start with the event in Copenhagen 10:00am. And then she will have the event in Aalborg (the opposite end of our country) at. 13:30pm, and then she will end the day with another event in Copenhagen (again in opposite end of the country) at. 17:00pm.

How can she reach that? Must be questions maybe primarily for the Danish members?

Here are a video from yesterday's dinner:



Galleri from kongehuset.dk

Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014 - Kongehuset

Busy day for Mary.

She started opening the Copenhagen Fashion Summit in the Opera, Copenhagen.
Mary held the opening speech and over 1100 people related to sustainable design were present. Mary is wearing a sustainable dress from Danish Charlotte Eskildsen.

Afterward, Mary flew to Aalborg, North Jutland (I guess she flew, I don't know how else she could reach it)

Here she handed out the Research Price 2014.

Article and picture from BB
Kronprinsesse Mary åbnede Forskningens Døgn | Billed Bladet

And here a video where Mary is being challenged on her balance and coordination skills. One, two, three start.. and hit the glowing buttons on one leg without tipping over.



Now, Mary has flown back to Copenhagen, where she participates in the completion of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

Lots of pictures from the Research Prize in Aalborg today:

2:39 minutes long clip from North Jutland's news broadcast. Captain Mary tries to manage a boat safely into port. It goes well... at least most of the time.

The purpose of this summit is sustainable fashion.

It is hardly a secret that textile workers in the countries that produce a lot, if not most, of the clothes we wear are treated more like slaves than employees.
It is unfortunately very common that workers die, from exgaustion, as a result from exposure to chemicals, lung deseases as a result of poor ventilation and not least fire, which is a major hazard in crowded textile factories which are often locked to prevent workers from sneaking away from their place at the machines.
Those who are injured, sick or the relatives after fatal accidents, are lucky if they get any reimbursement at all.
The average wage for a textile worker in Bangladesh, working 56 hours a week is about 20 US cents an hour! - Even in a very poor country, that's a meager salary.

And if that isn't enough, the textile industy is very polluting - and don't care about it...

The mainly western textile retail companies, have only halfheartedly attempted do impose ethical guidelins for their producers and subcontractors, and they have more or less enthusiatically created funds to pay invalided workes, when, when a plant burns down or simply collapse. - But that's more talk than action and many excuses...
So this summit will hopefully increase the awareness about the textile industry, especially among the consumers, that's you and me, and in that way put pressure on the fashion houses. Also, because sustainabillity and ethics is good for business and good pr, it is hoped that this conference will start some initiatives among the retailers and fashion houses. (More or less voluntarily).
I learned today that my favorite store, when it comes to clothes, and where I have bought most of my better clothes all my adult life, is among those who get's their clothes made at plants in Bangladesh where conditions are to put it mildly, less than humane! That has got a lot of coverage here in DK recently. - So in a way it's also up to me to do just a little bit to change that.

Wow! You are correct!! How did Crown Princess Mary travel to 3 events across the country in a day. Did she travel by local commercial airline, helicopter or private jet?

She couldn't have reach it with a commercial airplane (as they usual travels with), not when there was less than 2 hours between the events. My best guess is she has flown by helicopter - the same one as the Margrethe also uses. I can't see how she otherwise could have reached all three events.

But perhaps Muhler know more about it
