Thanks, Iceflower.

I was wondering what our Marie was doing in a mall in France, so I looked it up.
The mall has been restored by a Danish architect firm.

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

Now, this is interesting!

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #13, 2019.
Written by Dorte Quist.

Our Marie no longer has an LiW. That's common knowledge as well all know, after Siesbye resigned a while back. But it now appears she will not have a new one - at least not on this side of their stay in France.
Instead she has an unofficial escort in the shape of PH's nephew, Charles Henri Keller, who has been accompanying her on most official jobs recently.
- Henri Keller is married to a Dane (IIRC), he lives in Copenhagen and he holds a trusted position in the Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik's Foundation. And of course he is family.

It's a neat solution, I think.

(I will leave it to the moderators to decide whether this little piece of info should be lifted from this summary and placed elsewhere.)

But back to Marie.
She gave her speech at Danish Industry's HQ in Copenhagen on the "Speak French Day."
Danish Industry is a very influential organization consisting of all Danish production and export companies in DK, and as such they work very closely with the DRF.
If Danish Industry say "Jump" the government jumps!
If the organization think it's a great idea to send M&F to Saudi Arabia of all places - then it is also the wish of the government so M&F goes...

To a packed hall consisting of business leaders and ambassadors from French speaking countries, where we would very much like to export our products, Marie gave the opening speech. In her speech she emphasized the importance of learning languages, and as such also the culture as well as the importance in being able to interact (do business deals) in a common language. She also quoted Nelson Mandela for saying: "If you speak one language, that a man understands, then he understands with his brain. But if you speak to him in his mother tongue, then you speak directly to his heart."
Marie stayed for about an hour, listening to several speeches and having a cup of coffee with a number of those attending.

thank you Muhler for this insightful description of Princess Marie's visit. With regard to the posted video with Bjarke Ingels, do please enlighten me about what he is showing her on his cellphone! I have a bet with myself that it is a picture of his baby (son?), although it could be one of his buildings too (not much difference to an architect, no?) Ingels has projects all over the world, we have one of his buildings going up here in Toronto

It's difficult to hear, but I believe our Marie says something about "the first child", so presumably and like most happy new dads, he is only too willing to show photos of his firstborn.
That's very likable.

The King Toronto project is with roof garden and all. Urban gardens incorporated into major buildings is becoming increasingly popular.

The fascinating thing about buildings like that is that they offer a surprising amount of privacy, while offering the best possible view and light intake from the individual apartments.

All signs of good architecture; integrating interesting buildings into an already extant community. I wish we had more Danish architecture in Toronto to compensate for the very dull and annoying residential towers rising out of the ground here like cancerous growths.

She sure did, Iceflower, she sure did.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #16, 2019.
Written by Ken Richter.

Our Marie visited the Tirpitz Museum on the west coast of Jutland.
The museum is about Danish stretch of Hitler's Atlantic Wall. It's named Tirpitz because the anti-ship canons stationed in main bunkers along the coast were of the same type used in the German pocket battleship Tirpitz.
But apart from bunkers and canons there were also laid out 1.5 million mines along the coast. Even though the minefields were marked, it took many years to clear the mines - at cost of many lives too.
Mainly former German soldiers. At the end of the war, a couple of thousand predominantly teenage German soldiers were "persuaded" to take on the task of clearing the mines. They got a fee and they were fed. But they had only a minimum of training and many were killed. In hindsight that must be considered a Danish war crime. But things were of course seen in a different light back then.
In fact the last minefield was cleared only a decade or so ago.

As such the purpose of Marie's visit and speech was appropriate. To point out the danger of mines worldwide.
Marie told our reporter: "These mines claim victims daily. More than 2.000 people die annually from mines or other unexploded ordinances. 40 % of the victims are children. The mines makes it dangerous for children to go to school or play freely. That's why DanChurchAid among others help clearing mines in Libanon, Libya, South Sudan and Congo. There is still a need to help victims of landmines."

Thanks, Polyesco.

These boats will be of good use. Being designed to clean up after oil-spills in very shallow water, they can operate practically everywhere in DK.

Since a major international shipping route goes through Danish waters it happens from time to time that ships clean their oil tanks by dumping the spill in the sea. With the result that the oil end up on the nearest beach.
Fortunately it doesn't happen as often today as just 15 years ago. The surveillance of shipping is pretty efficient (the Navy and Air Home Guard takes part in that surveillance) and it is now possible to easier ID ships from the composition of the waste.
But it is still a real mess when oil ends up on the beaches and this is very much where the Civil Defense, which Marie belongs to, come in. Cleaning beaches along with local volunteers and alas, animal carers too, doing what they can for the seals and birds that have been covered in oil - and local hunters... because far from all animals can be saved.
