Yes and she was with Mary in Mali.



The press release on the cancellation of the visit in Danish
from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Udviklingsministeren og HKH Kronprinsessen må aflyse rejse til Senegal, men fortsætter i samarbejde med Red Barnet kampen mod børneægteskaber

The DRF has not said a word about Senegal or the visit to Mali. So far.

Lovely Mary, ready for any event.
When I saw this event on her calendar, I thought it was a little odd, and thought it was more of a Frederik event (I think he has inaugurated another energy or recycling plant), but of course he is off to Thailand for the funeral of the King.

According to this article it was indeed Frederik who was initially invited to inaugurate the plant but since he had to go to Thailand Mary took over. That's what Mary said in her speech.

Lovely smiling Mary

Mary said in her speech that she took over her husband's event:
"Originally, the invitation was to my husband, but he had to cancel because he represents Denmark at a important ceremony in Thailand."

ADDED
I also think that Mary's event this evening was originally Frederik's. Likewise, the event that Mary participates in tomorrow evening.

Mary must have landed from Mali today... directly to Jylland for a event, back to Copenhagen for a reception tonight. Tomorrow morning back to Jutland on event and tomorrow evening return to Copenhagen again for an awards ceremony.

In the recent years we have seen how F&M have relieve/taken over from the Queen. Gradually there are some members from DRF who may relieve/taken over from F&M Their calender these months are really packed!

agree. Great teamwork. Mary going to Frederik's events while he represents the Queen in Thailand.

The second event today is the Naval Team Denmark 25 anniversary.

Thank you, Iceflower.

Here is more: https://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/in...erMINUSMA.aspx

(A video will be uploaded on this page later).

The current Danish contingent operating in Mali consist of transport planes, Hercules to be exact. Maintained at a base located in Mali.
The base is secured by among other a security detail from the Air Home Guard, which is also why Mary changed to her Home Guard uniform. (She is a lieutenant in the Army Home Guard.)
Apart from pilots, staff officers and home guardsmen, there is also a contingent of special forces acting as a kind of air marshals. (You will notice one or two standing guard near the Hercules.)

I noticed the ones protecting Mary and the delegation, they smelled to high heaven like FET agents. I.e. from the military.
When members of the DRF travel to more insecure areas, Mali very much being such a place, it's usually the heavier armed FET agents who provide the bodyguards.

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

ADDED: The video has now been uploaded.
The visit to the Danish troops in Mali has been planned for about three months and it was very much a visit directed at the Home Guardsmen stationed there, which is also why the commander of the Home Guard, a major general accompanied Mary on the visit.

Today Mary visited the brand new library/culture-house in Aarhus, called Dokk1 - Because it's located at dok-1 = pier-1 in the harbor.


Mary appeared to be in fine form and interacted well with those around her. - I haven't got time to go into details now though.

The other woman is Nina Wedell-Wedellsborg of the omnipresent Wedell family. And belonging to the circle of friends around M&F.
I'll bet you a months salary in bananas that they did that on purpose!

Haha oh no, it's just so typical

Mary and Nina both had a good laugh..... In the video we see Mary arrives with opens arms and laughing jokingly: "Well, we thought it might be fun to be dressed alike today ...".

Later in the video Mary says about wearing the same gown: "Yes that's of course such a thing you'd rather avoid, but it's actually quite fun."

The dress is Danish design by the way.
