Thanks Muhler

Press release from the DRF's court and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

H.K.H. Kronprinsessen besøg i Burkina Faso udsættes | Kongehuset - Forside

Burkina Faso rejse udsættes

HRH Crown Princess Mary and Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen expose their joint visit to Burkina Faso because of the weekend's terrorist attacks in the West African country.

Kristian Jensen says:

'Because of the security situation we have unfortunately been necessary to expose the Crown Princess and my visit to Burkina Faso. But I very much look forward to complete the visit as soon as possible."

"I want to reiterate that I most strongly condemn the terrorist attack. Burkina Faso is a country which has shown an indomitable will to democracy and terrorists must not be allowed to destroy the people's desire to live in peace and stability."

So our Crown Princess will now have some unexpected days off and we have to miss her until the next official event :)

Nice pictures and article, but: ''...was last seen on January 16 presenting scholarships at the Organization for Heart Conditions on January 11.''
Maybe it was a 5 day event.

This forenoon Mary opened the UN conference on "UN's 17 World Objectives for Development".
Kronprinsesse Mary fik varm modtagelse af en helt særlig blomsterpige | BILLED-BLADET

And here she was met by a very special flowergirl, eight year old, Frida.
Frida was born at Rigshospitalet the same day Isabella was born.

Mary gave a ten minute long speech, In English. So hopefully we will get a clip at some point.
In the speech she said: "When you invest in women and girls, it benefits all".

Today and the next 9 days it's Easter holiday for all Danish school children and a large part of the Danes.

It also seems that Frederik and Mary will hold next week off and go on Easter holiday with their children. In the many recent years Frederik, Mary and all four children have spend their Easter holiday at Marselisborg with Queen Margrethe and Henrik.

Or maybe they this year utilizing the Easter for a skiing holiday now they didn't reach/had time for their annual skiing holiday during the winter holiday this year.

In May, Copenhagen will host the worlds largest international conference "Women Deliver" which focuses on women's health and rights. On that occasion Eurowoman DK has spoken with the conference's patron HRH Crown Princess Mary to a frankly talk about her work with gender equality.

- She's intelligent, strong and committed - and we are very proud to have a long and frankly interview with patron Crown Princess Mary in next month's edition of the Danish Eurowoman in the occasion of the international conference "Women Deliver":

A little sneak peak of the interview:

The May issue of Danish EuroWoman with HRH Crown Princess Mary:

That we have a Crown Princess who has brain and commitment is there no doubt about. And it's more than clear that she can her working stuff more than 120 percent. Being patron and host of the upcoming world largest women's conference in Copenhagen is a big role for our Crown Princess. I genuine looking forward to read the interview. Which I know will be packed with substantial, educational and fact-filled information. She knows her stuff.

Eurowoman DK is avaible from Wednesday, April 20.

ADDED:
You may remember the long and very frankly interview also CP Frederik gave in Euroman DK two years ago:

Great. 100% so far about her work and the conference in May, the she is patron of. Women's Deliver in Denmark this year.
this picture is beautiful
http://www.eurowoman.dk/upload/fixed...leurowoman.jpg

"Why Women Deliver relevant for Danish women?
"Firstly I would like to emphasize that this does not only concern Danish women. It concerns all Danes. I hope that the conference can create a little more understanding of the conditions of women in other parts of the world, because we have it so good here in Denmark. We are enormously privileged, "she says."

who can forget Frederik's interview and the nice pictures . it was a very open interview. I believe Joachim did one last year or so. they are well done

article from BT regarding Mary's interview for Eurowoman
Kronprinsesse Mary i stort interview: Lad være med at dømme en karrierekvinde

"When Copenhagen to May is host to the International Conference 'Women Deliver', which focuses on women's health and rights, hopes Princess Mary, among other things equality becomes a topic of conversation around the Danish dinner tables up to, during and after the conference, as she is patroness.

For although she believes that most Danes realize how good we have it here at home, she hopes that the conference can create discussion because it also focuses on the challenges that are still in Denmark - such as domestic violence"


great way to put focus on the upcoming conference

I expect to buy the magazine tomorrow.
Scan it and write either a summary or a translation.

It's rare the Crown Prince Couple gives these larger interviews so BT has of course picked up excerpts from the interview:

Kronprinsesse Mary i stort interview: Lad være med at dømme en karrierekvinde

Here a excerpt from CP Mary talking about her commitment and work for equality.

**

Mary til de royale tvillinger: Nyd jeres fødselsdag - det er jeres sidste!

Here a excerpt fra CP Mary talking about being mother to small children. Sometimes you just wish you could press the pause-button when your children grow up so (too) fast. She says that the most important for her and Frederik are their children believe in themselves and that they believe that they can 'live the life which calls on them', and that they have 'freedom to choose and be themselves'.

**

Kronprinsesse Mary: Sådan har jeg det med at gå bag Frederik

Here is an excerpt from Mary talking about how she feels about she officially have to walk one step behind her husband. She doesn't care at all. It's officially and a symbolic tradition, and in private they are entirely equal:

"I think we are very equal. We are partners. Equal partners. Also when it comes to how we are the parents of our children. So it may well be that there is a tradition for me to go one step behind my husband when we are out, and I fully and entirely accept that. It is something symbolic and tradition bound, but that does not mean that we are unequal in our marriage. "

**

In fact, I will not go into more details. For I know our excellent Muhler will scan and give a translation of the full interview later

From someone who just have read the whole interview:

Line Lauritzen@ I have just read the interview with the crown princess ����
A charming, loving, reflective, balanced, funny woman with a knowledge and a cleverness which can not be taken mistaken!

To be mother is her most important role! The home base with the crown prince and the children are her and the the crown prince's foundation. She is Danish! It is from here her world goes.. as she says. (With reference to the Danish national anthem 'In Denmark I am born")

She is a tireless fighter who is passionated about to make a difference, to do her best and to do everything she can to earn her title.

I can only recommend reading the interview.

Right, as Roskilde has mentioned in the above posts, Mary has given a very long interview to the May issue of Eurowoman, the female equivalent to Euroman, to which Frederik has also given an interview.

Now, since it's such a long interview I've decided to split it up into three parts.
The first parts will be a mood-description and the impressions by the journalist interviewing Mary, which suits the photos in the article.
Most of the photos were made in Mary's office.
One photo was taken on the roof.
One on the main staircase and at least on in a sitting room.

The next part will be about Mary herself, how she view her role and her family.

The third part will be about gender equality and Women Deliver.

See for yourselves here: https://app.box.com/s/fm623o0oyfc88ny2prxkhw3e9imlb5py

-----------------------------

The interview took place in February 2016, in Mary's office after the photographers were done.

Here follows the interviewer's (Mette Størum Krogh) impressions.

We are sitting in the office of the Crown Princess, where she is serving coffee prior to the interview. The last item on a long agenda which started with photo-shoots in the royal chambers, that is Frederik VIII's mansion at Amalienborg where the CP couple resides with the four children.
The crowning glory so to speak.

"Do You (formal you) use milk?", she asks while she pour piston-coffee in the white-fluted cup from Danish Copenhagen. I pour water to compliment the fine hosting.
There are filled chocolates and monogrammed napkins and we have seated ourselves in the soft cushions. A lilac two-person velour-couch with puffed pillows, also in lilac, which is the favorite color of the Crown Princess.
We are sitting facing each other, the Crown Princess as usual elegantly dressed in black and homely casual, even though she has put on her work-clothes.
She spends a lot of time in the beautifully furnished office, surrounded by white and fuchsia-colored orchids, a bouquet of cut rose-nuanced flowers on the desk ad a flower-decoration on the wall behind the desk by the artist Erik A Frandsen, who was one of ten artists selected to decorated the official rooms in connection with restoration of the residence in 2004-2010.
The large gold-framed mirror from floor to ceiling between the paned windows and the crystal chandelier in the ceiling reveals that it's not any office are in.
"Are You comfortable"? She shuffles the pillows behind me to make it more comfortable for me. We are going to sit here for a long time, because "it's heavy subjects we are going to talk about, she says with lightness in her tone.
She's well-prepared and excited, even though we have been on the go since morning and the rest of the Eurowoman-team have long since left the building and left us for a talk about what is the occasion for the interview: equality, one of the cardinal subjects of the Crown Princess.
"I've occuped myself with this subject for almost ten years, so it's very much on my mind", she emphasizes and sit herself more comfortable with crossed legs and a determined look on her face.

(During the interview)
The Crown Princess talks eagerly and long. The eyes are attentive, the gaze present and the arguments are delivered with precision. It's obvious she has a lot to say when it comes to the rights of women and girls. Only once during the interview does she briefly and almost imperceptibly switch ton English, only to quickly switch back to an almost flawless Danish.

During the interview I have a view of four large black and white pictures of the Crown Princess' children, which act as a background for our conversation.
Prince Christian age ten, Princess Isabella age eight and the twins Vincent and Josephine age five. "Picture perfect" and the perfect frame for one of the major subjects of the interview, motherhood, which is the basis of the whole thing.
As they hang there as nature created them, there doesn't seem to be the big difference between them, even if there are tow of each. And yet.
