hey everyone

i have just watched, shook hand and had a wonderful meeting with mary..again..this time it was extra great because we all could see and follow mary throughout the whole event..here comes my little reportage...

i showed up at the roskilde library 11.30 and there were many people..around 200 i guess... lots of kids and teenagers stood on the stairs and all the way down to the way where marys car would arrive. she couldn't had get a better arrivial...also our mayor was ready to receive mary.

we are waiting and waiting and people are so excited and exactly 12.00 arriving the crown car 8 and mary coming out and walks up the stairs. and man, so beautiful and graceful she is...she takes her plenty plenty of time to greet all the kids up along the stairs... and so she comes up to us who stand further up and people become almost touched...it sound maybe weird...but its true...i almost shaken a bit.. the atmosphere is so good and mary were so lovely that we all actually gave mary a spontaneous round of applause ... which made her very happy ... she is very popular undoubtedly...

a really good thing was that we all could get into the library and follow the whole event from the sidelines...but so many people...so many cell phones in the air..so a bit difficult to see her... many people went into the room where chairs and a big screen was erected so that people were able to follow it all live on a big screen..i switched to Watch it on the live screen and go back into the hall and see mary in real life...mary kept a sweet child-friendly speech... the kids were completely silent during the speech... people are talking and they are very impressed how well, flawless and fluent she speaks danish...very easy to understand and she speaks very clear..

after the speech mary went around and greeted all the children and people who were invited...we others stood on the sidelines...again so many people and we stood close together and all took photos .. so some minuttes without seeing so much...but all people were waiting...

and then she comes to us... lots of big mary-smiles...she is just so beautiful and we all get a big smile and some words from her... here i also shake her hand i hear people saying "my, she is "gudesmuk" (means really beautiful)".. and she is .. i say it every time i... and very smiling and happy... and very very accommodating...

several times she sits her squatting with the children on the floor (see my photos) and give her plenty of time to chat with them...sometimes she sits there up to 4-5 minutes..people praise it and think its only great she takes her so much time...she is not afraid to exceed the schedule..

then there is whispered that mary soon will come out again...and all the photographers rush out...i dont lie ... they ran fast like was it about running for their lives...we others hurry too step aside but there was no need to hurry...we waited 5-10 minutes outside because mary gave her good time.. also to see things outside of the program... the organizers told proudly about how genuine interested she is... people outside agreed... the journalists too..some said that is why they are so fond of her..i can see into the hall and the kids are all around mary...they hug her...and caresses her cheek...mary takes the time to all the kids before she comes out...

and now she comes...mary is surprised to see how many who have been waiting for her all the time to come out again and she says "oh, you're sweet ..."

people waving and some shouting "happy 10 years.. nice to see you and frederik so happy..." a very happy mary says "oh thanks a thousand thats was sweet of you..."

on the way down the stairs mary again gives her plenty of time to greet all the kids ... they almost follow her down and into the car...

and while i hear some people laugh at how the cars on the road and a city bus almost forget to look where they are driving... because they all look at their crown princess who suddenly stood there on the sidewalk

a truly wonderful experience...mary is a fantastic sweet woman..very mild, smiling, accommodating and down to earth...so many people...so many expectations and i will dare to say she fulfilled them all...

i know i maybe sound over the top happy ... but that's what i am right now ...

here all my photos...they became not so good this time because i looked more at mary than at my cellphone

more of my photos

Thank you for the pictures! Wonderful report!

P. S. Do you know what Mary got in those commercials? (one photo in your last post :)) Gifts? Maybe for her children?

Thank you so much, Maggie

What a wonderful experience to see Mary so close to you and throughout the entire event. Enjoyed reading "your reportage" and thanks for sharing all your pictures. I can only imagine you and the others gave Mary just as delightful an experience and that she drove home with a big smile on her lips.

What a brilliant experience that must have been for you, MaggieDenmark. Mary seems to make a few visits to Roskilde and the areas around it, so that must be practical for you. Thanks for sharing your day with us and the photos are great! You got some good clear shots of Mary. It looks like you were quite close to her.

Okay let's have a look on what Mary and the two children says in the video:

To start with Mary and the children count down from 10 to declare " The Summer Book" for open. Evidently the children count too fast so they suddenly are at "5" even though it says "6" on the screen. Mary tries to help with her fingers.

Mary told the children:
"Soon, you all will begin your summer vacation and I know that it's something my children looks very much forward to and I'm sure you does as well. To having time off from school, to pack the alarm clock, the school bag and school books away and instead find your swimsuit and enjoy the long bright days and evenings. For summer vacation is freedom, freedom to do exactly what you want. Almost." (I think she here after told about reading books in the vacation)

Olivia and Tobias? How was it to meet Mary?
- It was pretty cool and she asked about some nice things. It was just really fantastic.

Olivia, how much do you know about Mary and her family?
- I've read some books about her and I think she helps many people. I just think she's a good princess.

What about you, Tobias?
- I have also read books about her. And I also know something about Prince Henrik.

BB journalist Ulrik Ulriksen at the end:
Crown Princess Mary, what books do your children read during the summer vacation? - I think I will see what's in the bags we just had recieved. So perhaps a selection from there.

As Marta mentioned, it's my impression that a good deal of books are being read home at F&M. Both F&M themselves and books being reading aloud for the children.

It's so great that CP Mary brings attention to this important cause. One of our former First Ladies also promoted it. Reading to and with your children is one of the best things you can do as a parent, and the rewards are so many. One of my sons is now a reference librarian and the other is a teacher. The teacher even refuses to buy a Kindle - he doesn't want to contribute to the decline of the printed word.

Yes...She looks absolutely fantastic! And above all...she looks very happy! And how wise to promote reading when the children are about to go off on summer holiday! This is far more important than the skirt CP Mary is wearing (IMO)!

To the Danish posters...when do summer holidays start for school children?
