Indeed. Around 10 % of those between 16-29 feel lonely.
And as more than 60 % (IIRC) of Danish teens go to high school, that must be considered the right place to discuss and work on how to include those who feel lonely and/outside the community of students.

That is unfortunately only to be expected.

The number of Corona cases per day has long since reached alarming heights and additional restrictions are expected. Probably already tomorrow.

Interestingly that is the only event showing as cancelled. Her and Frederik's separate events for the 8th are still showing as going forward (and Mary's is at a cancer center). The Queen's event for 12/9 is also still showing as "on". Of course anything can change between now and then.

(Aside: I truly hope that this does not start a trend going into next year and Mary's 50th celebrations).

Indeed. - So far...

The latest recommendation is that people should reconsider the Christmas lunches.
And that event with the Mary Foundation was a kind of Christmas lunch. - Or perhaps rather reception.

Social events are likely to be scaled down before Christmas. That's the tendency in DK and elsewhere in Europe right now.

As I have mentioned before, there is a very real risk that the New Year Courts at the very least will be scaled down, likely cancelled.
As for QMII's Golden jubilee. If the number of infected, especially in Copenhagen, don't start to stabilize, well then these celebrations may have to be postponed.

What horrible timing this mess has had...especially when things were getting back to some semblance of normalcy in many places.

Yes, the Mary Foundation event was the Christmas reception for the foundation partners. Was looking forward to seeing that and keeping fingers crossed that we would see Frederik making an appearance. Sad that it is now cancelled. Very disappointing.

I guess it is a situation of limbo as to whether an event happens or not and if it happens, in what capacity.

Yes, the New Years Courts moving forward as planned is very iffy now given the timeframe. I guess if the jubilee events are postponed/cancelled so will Mary's 50th events (which, for lack of a better word just sucks for Mary's 50th).
I am so sick of this COVID debacle and of the people that are now just part of the problem tbh.

Instagram post by Mary Foundation about their 2021 donation to a girls/women's center in Burkina Faso that Mary visited on her recent trip there.

The Mary Foundation has done such important work and brought needed attention to many relevant topics of today. Not only in Denmakr but internationally. Can't believe that they will be celebrating their 15th anniversary in 2022.

That's very commendable. The center in Burkina Faso sure can use the money!

Mary refer to a soccer-party in connection with the European Championships, where in the aftermath of the restrictions people had been encouraged to watch and celebrate the matches together, including people, not least elderly and lonely, who might otherwise not attend such events.
She mentions she attended such a soccer party organized by the residents on a street in the Copenhagen suburb of Rødover.

I seem to vaguely recall seeing Mary uploading something on Instagram. Is that correct?

Thanks.
A good idea.

I hope we will see more of that when this Corona-thing is finally over.

Crown Princess Mary sent another video message today:


** instagram video **

Every year I usually send a little Christmas greeting about our work in the Mary Foundation. It has become a little different this time as I have recorded it on my own phone due to the corona.

This year, my greeting is about igniting hope. And how we can all help create hope in each other.

Merry Christmas to all

I clicked around a bit and it is very nicely organized and user friendly. A lot of good informative content. Looking forward to seeing the projects they have set up come to fruition in 2022.

Today, H.K.H. Crown Princess Mary and H.K.H. The Duchess of Cambridge visited Danners Crisis Center in Copenhagen ��

Our backpacks for children in shelters were the focal point of the visit. Here, child and family counselor Lene Frisch Larsen told about the center's many years of experience with backpacks. After this, the Crown Princess and the Duchess of Cambridge had the opportunity to speak to some of the shelter's residents.

Every year, we distribute 2,000 backpacks to the many children who come to the shelter with their mother. The backpacks are both a help to the many children who come to the shelter without anything. But it is also an educational tool for the shelter staff and a symbolic gesture to the children that they are seen and heard and that no children should grow up in a family with violence.

We distribute the backpacks together with Ole Kirk’s Fond and @ lokk.dk.

That's something the British press could have written about.
It was something Kate asked a lot into.

ADDED.
The crisis center is named after Countess Danner, who was married to the left hand of Frederik VII - i.e his unofficial wife.
She came from a poor background and she knew all about women suffering from domestic abuse. Hence why she was instrumental in setting up this first shelter for women in DK.
The upper echelons in Danish society snubbed and loathed her, but the public came to appreciate her and her causes.

Their Twitter account posted about today's visit.

Thank goodness the Mary Foundation and The Danner Center posted about the event and got their information out there.

And in contrast to the British press they got the title right. No Kate Middleton...
