But perhaps Muhler know more about it

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

You are right a commercial flight is out of the question. The schedule is too tight for commercial flights. When you factor in delays and traffic.
It is possible, but only if everything works absolutely smoothly.

A much more plausibe option is that Mary hitched a ride on a helipcopter to Air Station Aalborg, where the Army Special Forces have their base. Helicopters fly in and out of there all the time, so nothing new there.
My guess is that she this time hitched a ride on one of the faster Fennecs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurocopter_Fennec
They will have room for Mary, a LiW and two PET officers (or an adjutant) and are small enough to easily land at Kastellet a kilometer or so from Amalienborg.
Then she would have had to time to get a quick bite, refreshen herself and a change of clothes before she was on again.
But still a very busy day.

ADDED: I noticed Mary was again accompanied by an adjutant. He would be the one who would arrange for a helicopter to be on standby.

Last night, Mary attended as patron the Kidney Society "Kidneys Day", Copenhagen, where she lighted candles for organ donors:

Not many pictures online from this event yet...

Anyway, it was shown in our news at the evening.

Mary appears shortly in the usual "teaser" for the news where she is talking with the crowd:

And in the actual feature about the event Mary appear lightning the candle for the donors around 8:00:

Well...As many here know, I'm a Kidney Transplant Recipient and also marked my 20th Anniversary this past December 10th, so learning about this Day in Denmark hits very close to home. *Very* close to home.

I did not know Mary was Patron of this and I'd love it if one of our Danish Members could please explain a bit more about both the day and Mary's work w/Denmark's Kidney organization? Pretty please?

I've got Transplant Clinic on Friday and would love to tell my Kidney Doc a bit more about this. Thanks in advance to whoever answers my questions.

I love the lighting of those candles to honour and remember both forms of Donation, Live Donation and the form we all think of when thinking of Organ Donation, those who are sadly no longer w/us. Which was what happened w/me. My Donor was a 25 yr old man who was the victim of a Drunk Driver and I think of his Family and keep them in my Prayers every day.

Thanks for all of the pictures and looking forward to learning more about Denmark's Kidney Day.

Well, Tiggersk8,

I guess it works more or less the same way as it does in Canada.

The purpose of the Kidney Day is to meet others who have had a transplant and to show gratitude for those donors who live and to remember those donors that died.

It think it can be summarized in this from an e-mail to the association: "I got a transplant in 2005 at age thirteen, so it's getting close to nine years now. I enjoy life and (I) am grateful for the new life I have had. My donor no longer lives, but I still carry something of him in me and for that I'm eternally grateful".

A political campaign, combined with an increased awareness of the problem of donors, or rather lack of them, has meant a very consideralble increase in people signing up for the Donor Register.
Nowadays you can do it online and as it is considered a legally binding will, the relatives can't prevent it. And don't have to be in the situation, where they in their grief suddenly have to decide whether their loved one can be used as a donor.

- I'm sure this event will be covered in BB Thursday, so perhaps there'll be more.

The last picture shows Mary greeting one of our very well known actress, Anne-Grethe Bjarup Riis. She is such an actor you either love or hate. Personally, I like her.

That's just it though Muhler, we don't have a day like this. Not Nationally at least. I wis we did. Organ Donation is down across the board in my Home Province of Ontario. Something like this could do so much good here in Canada. Sigh...:(

Perhaps you could start one? It has to begin somewhere.

Because as you point out, this is important to put light on. I imagine Canada is like everywhere else, organ donors don't hang on the trees.

BB #19. Covers Mary's engagement with Kidney Association and also her presenting the Brain Prize in the Black Diamond, which is the national library and placed very close to Amalienborg.
Carrying a clutch from Carlend CPH, she had a chat with several she knew before the show started.

One she, again, seemed to be particularly pleased to see it was noted, was Bent Fabricius-Bjerre a very popular composer and also a close friend of certainly the Regent Couple but obviously also M&F.
Mary seems to be particular fond of him. Perhaps she consider him a kind of honorary grandfather?

I've never met him, but if his music reflects his personality he must be a very pleasant and cheerful man to be around.
Here is one of his most wellknown pieces, which can't help cheer you up.
And if you play it to a Dane you will almost be guaranteed to see that person's face light up.

Bent Fabricius is also known as Bent Fabric and is the composer of "Alleycat", perhaps even more wellknown to foreigners.

It seems to me Denmark is very progressive in creating awareness for worthy causes. I am sure many other western countries could learn a thing or two from the Danes. Having a royal around helps enormously it seems. Best of luck with the future Tigger.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #21, 2014.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As you remember Mary visited a home, called Home, for youths who have been placed away from their families and as such they have had their share of issues in their lives.
The residents of the home
Josephine aged 18,
Camilla 16,
Merle 14,
Charlotte 18,
Karina 18,
Patrick 15,
Sabine 19,
had wished for a visit by Mary and that wish was fulfilled.

And now there is Mary's car: "Oh my God (said in English)" - "How wild is that" - "I get tears in my eyes".
After recieving Mary they all went around to the garden belonging to the home and here they sat and listened to three speeches. By Jorun Magnussen (Who seems very much to be the mother of both former and present residents of the home), chairman of the board, Gitte Mai Mostel, who herself is a former resident and finally by one of the residents, Karina.

Gitte Mostel told her story and that led Mary to tear up. Gitte Mostel moved in at Home when she was thirteen and she told of one particular episode that changed her: "Jorun came just when we were leaving and in her hand she held an Easter egg. Don't let it be for me, I prayed inside.
And then she looks at me and reach out her hand to me and says: "It's for you, it's Easter you know". That Easter egg became a part of my destiny. I remember how I cried. I was after all just a little girl with a way too hard a shell. I was overjoyed for that Easter egg and I still remember it.
I know now that my mother did what she could and no one can aske for more. She is no more but she will forever live on in my memory for good or bad. It was a great loss to lose her, now that we just had gotten to know each other.
I'm not just proud today, I'm proud everyday I step inside Home".

On these stories I guess it felt obvious to hug every one of the residents as Mary did when she left.

Afterwards Camilla and Merle told about the visit.
Camilla: "It was utterly fantastic. It really meant a lot to me".
Merle: "We had looked forward and prepared for this for a very long time. So when we stood lined up waiting and the cars came, I thought: It's now...Now, I'm really going to meet her and then the tears just poured out of me".

Thanks Dazzling,

Here are more pictures

I don't think we should expect many more pictures from this event since it was "only" a orientation visit and the press wasn't allowed inside.

Kronprinsesse Mary mødte unge med sorg | Billed Bladet

Article from BB telling that the visit lasted for several hours (not normal for our royals visit) and Mary met volunteers and join a therapy group for young people with complicated grief. Mary explained to the press that it was a intense experience.

The young people put subsequently an enthusiastic message on their Facebook page:

We had an absolutely fantastic day with our patron HRH the Crown Princess yesterday. The Crown Princess met some of our volunteers and participated in a therapy group for young people with complicated grief issues. It was a great experience for everyone. We look forward to future cooperation!

As you may know Mary herself lost her mother as 25-year-old and has previously stated: - "It was as if the world continued, and I stood still."

What an important organization.
Losing a parent at a young age is devastating in my experience.
