Mary's visit to Senegal (11-15 November)

There doesn't seem to be much, if anything, of Mary's visit to Senegal in the coming magazines out tomorrow.

BB has an article, but that's all.
Kronprinsesse Mary til landsbyfest i Senegal | BILLED-BLADET

So we should probably not expect more from this trip.

That we have a genuine, committed and involved Crown Princess in Denmark can not be in doubt. And I think it's cool and tells much about Mary's genuine and honest personality that she's doing much work without the press/behind the scenes combined with her many other official events

Thanks Polyesco,

A quick change of outfit and on to the next event :) This event was directly after Mary's earlier arrangement today with with Caroline Wozniacki.

Let's hope we'll get more pictures.

As soon as Mary arrived to her event yesterday she laid down a big bunch of French white lilies as she paused to honour those who lost their lives at a memorial in the streets of Copenhagen

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #49, 2015.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As you can tell from the pictures posted above, Mary went to the French embassy, where she was received outside by the French ambassador (who has unfortunately become a familiar face here in DK over the past year) Francois Zimeray.
Here she added a bouquet of white lilies to the sea of flowers outside the embassy. Placed her hand across her heart (*) and exchanged a few words with the ambassador before going inside.

Here she was met by a four year old flowerboy named Victor, whom Mary had a short chat with.
The purpose for going to the embassy was the annual presenting of the Human Rights Prize (**) started by the French ambassador.
And as patron of the Maternity Foundation Mary received the prize. The organizations use of innovative mobile technology for training people to help with giving births. (Especially in Africa south of Sahara)
But it was the manager of the Maternity Foundation who gave the return speech and she said: "On behalf of Maternity Foundation I'd like to express our sadness over the terror attack in Paris and we would like to express our deepest sympathy to all who are afflicted by the tragic events".

After having received Mary met ambassadors from former French colonies in Africa. - Again from south of Sahara. These country very much use their French connections as a way to establish contacts here in DK and elsewhere.

Mary was by no means among strangers. Also there were Birgitte Handwerk and Julie Mølsgaard. Not to mention the doctor who was responsible when she gave birth to her children at Rigshospitalet, Morten Hedegaard. - He has recently been to Ethiopia to help birth clinics.

(*) This way of showing respect, while common in USA in particular is (still) pretty uncommon here in at least continental Europe.

(**) The French ambassador has introduced prizes, literature and human rights. That gets a good deal of coverage here in DK and in that way he profiles France.

BB writes today that the Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik foundation has donated 75.000 DKK to the Maternity Foundation for which Mary is patron.
Dronning Margrethes julegave til kronprinsesse Mary | BILLED-BLADET
The money will go to training in acute deliveries in Ethiopia. Volunteers are trained in being rudimentary midwives, because so many either cannot afford to go to hospital, live in too isolated areas or rely too much on erroneous traditional methods.

DR right now sends a one hour long program about the year that passed in 2015 in the DRF. A good and great focus on Mary's large and committed work.

You can see it live here:

Tonight, DR sent their annual broadcast "The year in 2015 in the Danish Royal Family."
I'm posting it here as the broadcast had a good, strong and informative focus on Mary's large work.

The broadcast started with that it's not without a reason that Mary in the Gallup surveys is the DRF's most popular member, and that member in the DRF the Danes think is doing the best work. She's doing a huge and comitted work the year round.

A reporter, often going with her on work and working travels, told about an episode. Mary had been on a five-day official visit with the Mary Foundation - during a stopover on the way home in Geneva - she took the advantage of the waiting time to make a keynote speech to a UN meeting. On the plane the rest of the way to home to Denmark she got up from her seat, walked down to the experts in the middle on the plane, squatted down in the gangway for an hour while talking with the experts - because she couldn't resist to hear more and just would like to have the last details with her. That's genuine commitment. The program praised her for talking loud about difficult topics which royals usually do not talk about. Sex, contraceptives and loneliness etc. She's brave in her speeches and interviews. Crown Princess Mary is a rolemodel of how a royal can be a useful hardworking royal. and she will and does make a difference.

Crown Prince Frederik was described like this as well. Our PM Lars Løkke end former PM Helle Thorning both explained how it is to work closely with Queen Margrethe and Crown Prince Frederik. Both explained that it was all a bit more down-to-earth when Crown Prince Frederik was present. He's very easy to talk with and makes people feel welcome and comfortable.

So began the program to change... It began to talk about dresses and so on... and I saw the rest of the program with half an eye. I observed the programme focused on the "Prince Henrik scandal" at Queen Margrethe's 75 years birthday, the bridgegate, Princess Marie's breast enlargement operation and the DRF's handling of this.

And there was also a good coverage of the Regent Couple's trip to Greenland.

You are welcome
Can you watch the program outside of Denmark? If, I have heard that DR has got a new feature so you can put subtitles on. If I remenber correct.
