  2. "HRH The Crown Princess has today delivered a virtual opening speech at the annual panel debate on women's rights during the 44th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, which this year focused on accountability for women's and girls' rights in humanitarian situations. The opening of the panel is part of Denmark and the Crown Princess 'commitment to women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights, especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Denmark’s membership of the UN Human Rights Council focuses on several human rights priorities, with Denmark having a recognized and leading role internationally. Denmark has a special focus on strengthening women's and girls' rights, including their sexual and reproductive health and rights, so that women's right to decide over their own bodies is secured. This is particularly relevant in light of the COVID-19 crisis, which has - and will continue to have - disproportionate consequences for women's and girls' rights globally."

The green transition will be in focus in November when the Crown Prince Couple, together with a large business delegation, visit The Netherlands, which is Denmark’s sixth largest export market. With the title “Partnering for Green Transition”, Their Royal Highnesses will take part in a conference, seminars and company visits in The Hague and at the port in Rotterdam." I think this was to have taken place in June but for Covid.
  6. https://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HRC/Pages/NewsDetail.aspx?NewsID=26079&LangID=E Keynote Statement CROWN PRINCESS MARY OF DENMARK, speaking via video message, said that human rights were the basic rights and freedoms that belonged to every person in the world, from birth until death, regardless of the circumstances. Human rights did not end when emergencies began. Just as pregnancies did not end, when emergencies began. Just as childbirths did not end, when emergencies began. Sexual and gender-based violence did not end when emergencies began either. Rather the contrary, they increased. As health facilities globally were overburdened and supply chains disrupted, women and girls faced limitations - particularly in humanitarian settings - in accessing essential health services, including sexual and reproductive health services. Lockdowns increased the risk of violence and exploitation of children. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization had estimated that COVID-19 had impacted schooling for over 70 per cent of children around the globe. Girls living in emergency contexts were at particular risk of not returning to school. Women and girls’ vulnerability in crises was not a sign of weakness, but of inequality. More than anything, women and girls were powerful and resourceful. More than ever, the current health crisis had demonstrated the need for the international community to work together - it had shown that the strength of unity and the power of joining forces was the world’s best weapon. The international community and humanitarian organizations must consider the unique vulnerabilities of women and girls when designing solutions and implementing them.

    Summer news 2020

    Perhaps plans changed. The official calendar is the one to be trusted. With COVID still around, it is possible that with QM and PB both being 70+, the CPC and kids will leave Gråsten before they arrive.
  10. And the local newspaper said she would join the CP family on Monday, 13. July. But I think the royal calender is most safe then. If then I think the CP family will have left Gråsten when the Queen arrives as they at that time will have been at Gråsten for over 3 weeks. Usually they stay at Gråsten for 2-3 weeks. Maybe the Queen has decided not to see many family members at the same time this summer due to Covid-19? I wonder where the CP-family will spend the rest of their vacation after Gråsten ☀️ Probably in a summer cotage as there is not many other things to do. I also wonder if they can go on their usual unofficial summer cruise around in Denmark abroad Dannebrog this summer?

Sønderborg Fire & Rescue moved to the castle and got the fire out. The golf cart has been involved in a previous drama when Prince Henrik in 2013 drove one of his dachshunds, Querida, down."

  17. Then it can’t be more Danish. Like a true H.C. Andersen fairytale 🇩🇰 Crown Princess Mary takes lovely pictures and it is nice she often shares them with us. If you've been following Mary over the years, you can't help but notice how much she 'sees' things and easily gets excited about things on her way. It is a really good quality to have as a human. Excitement. It’s a quality I really try to let my children take with them through life.

  21. https://www.maryfonden.dk/da/node/1787 "New campaign to break the taboo about loneliness among young But for some people is loneliness a permanent companion. And if loneliness takes hold, it can be harmful to both body and psyche. Among young people, more and more people are expressing their feeling of loneliness. The latest figures show that 12% of young people aged 16-24 are seriously lonely The Mary Foundation is launching the campaign with a film featuring the Crown Princess on why it is so important that we do what we can to bring loneliness to life. In addition, the campaign will consist of various social media content targeted at young people, including a movie and a series of advice for young people on how to reach out to each other and what to do if you feel lonely. The good advice has been prepared in collaboration with Ventilen and Børns Vilkår. The Mary Foundation is working to combat loneliness as one of its three focus areas, based on a vision of a community where everyone experiences belonging. The Mary Foundation works breaking the taboo of loneliness, thereby allowing it to act on loneliness."
  22. I think you are completly right about that. At least in 2016 Princess Marie attended CPH Pride as patron of the AIDS Fondet. Not sure who was de first member of the family to show their support to the cause. But I'm glad they did.
