Would anyone have the BB article? I didn't find it online; the link in the posts above doesn't give much information. It just says the students of the high school were there. - Thanks!

The link Maggie posted #160 was the article, in Danish. I will try to post the translated link.

Thanks Roskilde
I would love to understand Danish, I know a few words, however I must confess I used a translator.

Found it, marfre! Thank you for trying, though. - Yes, it makes perfect sense to speak English if it was international!

Yes, the whole purpose of this is to have a "simulated UN summit", hence the participants from foreign high-schools.
The topics are very much in line with Mary's work. I.e. AIDS, capital punishment, abortion, preventions, gender discrimination and so on.
You can easily tell the foreign students from the Danish. The foreign students are neatly dressed...

(Is it just me or do others think it's slightly odd to have an obituary placed right next to this photoseries)?

Yes, the young students were guests from countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey, Spain and the U.S., so I guess they appreciated that Mary held her speech in English and not in Danish. Otherwise, I'm afraid they would have looked something like

Not to mention that Mary's speech was more than fifteen minutes long. It requires you knows your material and stuff and have practiced the speech through again and again. I'm always impressed by people (royals as non-royals) who can hold such long speeches - maybe because I couldn't even say a few words to my children's christenings without having to mess them up.

I think Mary has a very pleasant voice. I've always liked it. - I think she spoke well, and her manner was very pleasant.

The dress she wore; it would be lovely on a summer's day, being light and airy, but I find it too flimsy for a cold February day. The long boots look really good.

Cold February day? It's been 8 degrees C this week! - Almost warm enough for T-shirts.
We've had exactly three weeks of winter this year. (Including two minor blizzards). - Not that I'm complaining.

The larks (the horny b*rst*rds) are chirping away as if they were paid for it.
It's been a weird, but great winter this year! The heating bill will not be a horror story this year at least.

That's fair enough, Muhler! I'm just assuming February is a cold time in Denmark, but have heard it's been exceptionally warm this European winter.

I would still prefer that dress in the summer, and something not so light to combine with the jacket and the boots. She's worn beautiful outfits earlier during the winter. - I just would prefer that dress with happy sandals or similar, and not winter boots. - Just me! :)

It wasn't a scolding. Merely a baffled statement of how unusual a winter we have had this year.
February usually is cold and miserable and depressing...

Mary's speech has now been published on Kongehuset's website. It's a long speech, but very interesting and informative.

Model United Nations Conference BIGMUN, Birkerød Gymnasium, 19 February 2014 - Kongehuset

Though it hasn't been added to the calendar yet, Mary mentions in her speech that she will go to New York for the 58th Session of Commission on the Status of Women that will take place in mid-March.

The CP Mary's Message Board has found these videos from three of Mary's events the last couple of weeks. They give some insight that the pictures can't do the same way.

CP Mary opens the School 200 anniversary year:

And at the Cancer Society Award:

Here tonight, Mary attends the premiere of the documentary "One does not say no to Asger!" on the occasion of Asger Jorn's 100th anniversary at the State Museum for Art, Copenhagen.

First two pictures:

VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary til filmfest med vennerne | Billed Bladet

A video from BB of Mary at the movie premiere last night.

A number of very familiar faces, so she didn't feel alone.
Bent Fabricius Bjerre, with wife. He is a close friend of the DRF.
Preben Christensen who is the husband of Mary's hairdresser Søren Hedegaard.
Lis Sørensen, singer, who was heard some years ago addressing Mary with informal you at an official event and talking about giving her a call. So she must be considered among Mary's friends.
The good friend of M&F, Christian Buchwald, was there as well.

No LiW, but instead an adjutant. - A royal lady cannot go unaccompanied to a public event.

I think Mary looks excellent, and her hair style is very flattering. She seems to enjoy being there, and people around her look happy.

I find her outfit particularly good, but cannot understand the choice of big, green earrings to go with the rest. It would have been an excellent outfit had it not been for the earrings.
