Your welcome! It made my morning to see that video and to see that the supplies had indeed arrived. What a great cause! So happy that William, Catherine, Mary and Fred took time out to help spread awareness. Their visit sure helped me learn alot that I would have otherwise not known. After learning so much about the cause I decided to donate and boy my money couldn't have gone to a better and more deserving charity.

Excerpts of article in Billed Bladet #45, 2011.
Et stjernehold er født - A star-team is born.
Written by Marianne Singer, Helle Skram de Friis & Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you may have noticed William and Kate dropped by Copenhagen the other day to visit the UNICEF storage facillity along with Mary and Frederik.
You probably have an idea about what went on by now, so let's go to the impression the royal ladies in particular made on our reporters.

Different styling.
Both Mary and Kate looked fantastic during their visit at UNICEF. However the styling wasn't quite similar. The Danish Crown Princess Mary had during the forenoon been visited by Søren Hedegaard who is her permanent hair and make-up stylist, (*) and Anja Camilla Alajdi, who advise her in regards to her wardrobe. And the result was nice: Mary's hair was arranged in two soft twirls, gathered in the back with a buckle and she wore light day-makeup primarily focusing on the eyes. Duchess catherine is known for putting on her makeup herself and for selecting clothes for official events herself. And as seen before she had also this time laid a lot of black eyeliner and marked/emphasized her eyebrows. Her hair was loose and natural and it was several times a challenge for the photographers when it covered her face.

On with the favorite brands.
Kate caused a stir during the visit in Denmark with her wool-coat in bright red. It's from one of her favorite brands, L.K. Bennett and it costs 2.400 DKK. (**) The coat is almost already sold out in England.
On the coat was a red poppy, (***) which is used as a symbol (Remembrance Day) to commemorate the fallen soldiers in WWI.
She had exchanged the original coat-belt with one from Vecceli Italy made from crocodile skin, which costs a couple of hundred DKK.
The high chocolate brown suede-skin/untanned (****) skin boots from Stuart Weitzman for around 3.500 DKK were both cool and practical with the slip-not sole.
Mary's elegant dove-blue silk-shirt is from one of her favorite brands, Prada.

Babies and fire-alarm.
Before the visit to the UNICEF world store the CP-couple invited the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to a very private lunch in their own mansion at Amalienborg.
Here the four royals had a cosy time with good food prepared by the chef Jesper Vollmer and as far as Billed Bladet has been told, William and Kate also had the opportunity to see little Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent, during the visit. (*****)
During the visit the firealarm at Amalienborg went off and that caused quite a stir at the square, where a fireengine actually turned up. It was however false alarm.

The BRF information chief, Miguel Head said to BB:
"You can well say that the Duchess and Duke have been inspired by the Danish CP-couple. And by Crown Princess Mary's visit to the Horn of Africa, which they knew about before this visit was arranged.
But first and foremost it was all a bit of a coincidence. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a very personal relationship to Kenya, where they have followed the hunger-disaster develope and (they) have been horrified by the scale of the disaster.
They decided to do something in order to get the world's attention directed towards East Africa. In that context it was quite logic to visit the UNICEF facillities in Copenhagen. It was a logic step for all four royals to meet in order to do something about the hunger-disaster now.
They thought that if they combined forces they could reach out wide and effeciently with their plea for help".

(*) He'll most likely go with her to Australia as well.

(**) 1 $ = 5 DKK.
1 € = 7.6 DKK. (That rate is fixed).

(***) The famous poppies of Flanders. I recently learned on this board that the poppies are now also used to commemorate all fallen in all British conflicts since WWI.

(****) Help! Google Translate is crap. Ruskind doesn't exist. - Nor does skridsikker.

(*****) Christian and Isabella were presumably in school and kindergarten.

The meek shall inherit the Earth - that is, if the rest of you don't mind...

It's 'suede' - or 'deerskin' Muhler - try this great glossary site if you need any sort of technical term - It's an EU operated database and you can freely choose your language combination.

Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
