Efter terror-angreb: Kronprinsesse Marys rejse i fare - Politik | www.bt.dk

BT has contacted the Foreign Minister: "We have the whole time known that it was an area with a fragile stability. It's obvious we the the whole time has to assess how the security situation is. We are a present looking at it to see if we should change/modify the trip".

- If we look at the political implications of going ahead with the visit and there was an incident involving Mary (and the Foreign Minister), with say the FET agents having to open fire.
Then the Foreign Minister, the Minister for Justice (responsible for the police, including PET), the Chief of PET, and most likely the PM himself, would have to resign. And a couple of heads of the departments in the involved ministries could kiss their career goodbye as well.
I simply cannot imagine the government let alone the ministers surviving politically after an incident where a such a high-profile member of the DRF is in danger, shortly after no less than two terrorist attacks.
Had these attacks occurred while Mary was in Bukina Faso, then a couple of ministers would resign, but the government might still survive.

- Did Queen Mathilde ever visit Burkina Faso later on?

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

ADDED: More from Jyllands Posten: http://jyllands-posten.dk/internatio...r-hotelangreb/

Here the Foreign Minister elaborates: (See above quote) + "But we are not going if there is any doubt as to whether we can ensure the safety of the Crown Princess. We look at it, assess the situation and see if we must change the trip.
I hope not, because the project we are to look at is incredibly important in relation to secure women's rights, that are facing difficulties in that part of the world. Involving women more in the society will also help contributing for the security in the country".

The Brussels Times - Queen Mathilde will go to Ethiopia

Replace that trip with the trip to Ethiopia last november

Thank you for keeping us posted.
It must be very stressful for Mary (and I'm sure Frederik ) and all involved in the visit.
The minister is right very important work/projects but safety should come first

Mary's visit to Burkina Faso has been postponed. There is no new date.
Instead the Danish Foreign Minister will meet with his counterpart from Burkina Faso in Ethiopia. - And that IMO suggests that there will be no visit for a considerable period.

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."

TV2 article:
http://nyheder.tv2.dk/udland/2016-01...l-burkina-faso

**

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.

tomorrow,Mary speaks as patron of the Women Deliver 2016 Conference at KVINFO March 8 celebration.

more about the event
H.K.H. Kronprinsessen taler til kvindernes internationale kampdag 8.marts | Kvinfo.dk

""It is quite natural that it is the Crown Princess, speaking at a March 8 event in Denmark. With her international work both within the United Nations and on his many travels to shelters and refugee camps in North Africa and the Middle East, she makes a concrete and important difference for the world's vulnerable women and girls, "says KVINFO director Nina Groes.

Thank you Roskilde & Polyesco

Here is a BB video of mainly Mary giving her speech: VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary høstede flot applaus for sin tale | BILLED-BLADET

I've had the opportunity to read a part of the speech and in that she clearly refers to women's plight in countries she has visited... Phrased diplomatically but the reference is IMO unmistakable.

I also noticed that Mary's accent during this speech was much less pronounced than usual. Presumably because she has rehearsed.

Both her manner of talking and her movements are different from other speeches, yes. I guess she rehearsed this with this kind of event in mind: a gathering of like minded (relatively young) women who want to change something. It also makes me realize all of a sudden that she does attend a lot of more "stiff" conferences and events where this tone would be less apropriate. How conventientional the academic, scientific establishment can be...

On another note: great that she still has this Prada jacket! It's 11 years old but she never looked as good in it as now! (why doesn't that ever happen to me? ) Also, I never realized it was part of a suit. Mary from the start: blue jacket1

A clear speech(message) from Mary. I saw some of it in TV2 news last night and read part of the speech in BT today. As Hannelore mentions: You could see on Mary's body language this topic really is high on her commitment list.

Yes, she doesn't throw away her old clothes. She's the Queen of recycling. I actually think both pants and shoes are the same as in year 2005 as well.



Here you can read Mary's (very good, informative and looong) speech at the International Women's Day last night:

Kvindernes Internationale Kampdag | MaryFonden.dk

"Gender equality is not about that men and women should be the same. It's about that gender should not play a role when opportunities arise and decisions are made!"
- Crown Princess Mary

Thanks, Roskilde.

That's a very good and factual speech. It ought to be translated but I'll have to skip that one.
