Isn't Mary in New York today? Can't find any information in the North American media but I suppose that's not surprising considering Americans/Canadians wouldn't recognise or know Mary if they tripped over her. When will NY visit thread be open?

Thanks for the pictures. Does anyone know if Mary's brooch is new? LOve the orange shade on her.
She has been quite busy this past month and quite a few more travels the coming month.

Yes, she is really busy these months. She is doing a great job. Brazil, New York, Russia, Mozambique and Hong Kong in December. I hope she holds a lovely and relaxing autumn holiday with Frederik and their children

She looks a little tired. No wonder with that schedule.

Not to mention that she has probably not fully recovered from her cold or whatever she contracted on the flight home from Brazil.

A few stumbles but she did an excellent job IMO. I'd like to see those documentaries.

She did a great job. She spoke out for women in places that get little attention. Bless her.

Too bad the American press isn't covering her visit, I was looking forward to more photos.

I watched the video...and I always think it is quite condescending (perhaps not the right word) or self-righteous or cringeworthy of people like Princess Mary who advocate that for '$25 a woman can have safe birth or whatever...' when her life is what it is, one of privilege and wealth and endless Louboutins it seems...I like Mary - don't get me wrong - but this kind of preachy ideals really bugs me...It seems meaningless that she can say things like this and be concerned and then not put her money where her mouth is...I could be wrong but what is the point of people like Mary and celebs like Danny Glover to be there...PR? To get normal people like US to donate to this cause? They talk about the gap between rich and poor widening...and why is this? Baffling...

Well, the short response to that is that if you and I tried to put more focus on the issue, no one would care.
The same thing applies to most politicians. - No one cares.

The focus is very much on Africa and no one cares about Africa. Not least the way the economic situation is at present.

It takes some celebrity, glamour or royalty to get some attention.

it was what i thought, exactly, when i heard about the 25 USD in her speech. i bet that just this trip, with all the transportation, hotels, security costs, etc, has a value of many, many multiples of 25 USD - perhaps even many more than what this speech will actually get people to donate.

just a thought.

I too don't understand why her visit isn't covered more? Is it maybe because it is weekend?
