Princess Mary’s whirlwind week of style

Princess Mary’s whirlwind week of style

Crown Princess Mary is known for her work ethic, and this week is no exception.

Making five personal appearances, the Danish royal  has gone everywhere, and she managed to pull everything off seamlessly.

Earlier in the week, the Danish royal palace’s official Instagram account shared an update about Mary’s meeting with Executive Director for World Food Programme (WFP), David Beasley.

I dag fik jeg besøg af Executive Director for World Food Programme (WFP) David Beasley og udviklingsminister Rasmus Prehn. Under besøget ønskede jeg WFP tillykke med modtagelsen af Nobels Fredspris 2020, som organisationen har fået for sin indsats for at bekæmpe hungersnød, for at skabe bedre betingelser for fred i konfliktramte områder og for sit arbejde for at forhindre, at sult bliver brugt som våben i konflikter. Under mødet blev jeg chokeret over at høre om de dystre forventninger de kommende år til, hvor mange mennesker, der vil blive ramt af hungersnød, bl.a. på grund af konflikt og menneskeflugt. At høre om WFPs strategiske planer og arbejde, som støttes af Danmark, gjorde dog, at jeg kan forblive optimistisk. Men som med alle store udfordringer kræver denne også, at verden står sammen.⁣ ⁣ 🖌 Today, I had the pleasure of meeting with David Beasley, Executive Director for World Food Programme (WFP) and Rasmus Prehn, Danish Minister for Development Corporation and had the opportunity to congratulate WFP on being awarded this years’ Nobel Peace Prize. WFP was recognised for its efforts to combat hunger, to create better conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas, and for its work to prevent hunger from being used as a weapon in conflicts. During our meeting, I was choked to hear how many millions of people are forecast to face extreme food insecurity in the coming years, primarily due to conflict and migration. Thankfully, learning more about WFP’s strategic plans and work, which is strongly supported by Denmark, helps in remaining optimistic. However, overcoming such a huge and complex challenge, will require the world to stand united.⁣ ⁣ 📸 Martin Sylvest, Ritzau Scanpix©️⁣

In a rare personal statement, Mary wrote of the event: "During our meeting, I was choked to hear how many millions of people are forecast to face extreme food insecurity in the coming years, primarily due to conflict and migration."

She continued: "Thankfully, learning more about WFP's strategic plans and work, which is strongly supported by Denmark, helps in remaining optimistic. However, overcoming such a huge and complex challenge, will require the world to stand united.⁣"

Shortly after, Mary was pictured once again out and about as she attended the launch of World Hour 2020 at Copenhagen City Hall.

Then came another event, which was held outdoors.

Mary pulled up to the suspension bridge that connects Funen and Jutland in Denmark to celebrate 50 years since Frederik IX inaugurated the connecting bridge.

Mary then attended a meeting with the WWF, where she discussed nature, wildlife and biodiversity with the workers of the organisation.

And last but not least, Mary visited a children’s swimming pool where she spoke to children about bullying.

I Helsingør Svømmeklub satte Hendes Kongelige Højhed Kronprinsessen med @mary_fonden i dag fokus på bekæmpelse af mobning i børnesvømning 🤽🏻🏊🏻‍♀️⁣ ⁣ I svømmeklubben bruger man initiativet Antibulli Svømning, der er udviklet af Mary Fonden i samarbejde med Dansk Svømmeunion og TrygFonden.⁣ Antibulli Svømning er et redskab, der gør det nemt for svømmetrænere at styrke fællesskabet og forebygge mobning i børnesvømning og består af konkrete råd og øvelser til træningen. Ved svømmehallens bassin viste børn fra Helsingør Svømmeklub øvelserne ”find tre forandringer” og ”kryds og bolle”. Hendes Kongelige Højhed overværede øvelserne og hilste på børnene.⁣ ⁣ 📸 Steen Brogaard ©⁣

The club has a special initiative in line with Mary's self-titled foundation, The Mary Foundation, which aims to combat bullying among children in swimming clubs.

And that concludes Mary’s whirlwind week of style.
