I appreciate - and somewhat admire - the nerve of a member of a royal family preaching equality for all.  When they are part of a system that is set up to achieve the exact opposite outcome.
Yes, it gives me the same fuzzy feeling like a royal clad in designer clothes that cost the equivalent of a small country's social net and who tells us that we all need to tighten our belts now to help those in need.

July 1
Mary Fonden has released a new video of Yrma
Mary tells why it’s so important that we should do everything we can to overcome loneliness. The Mary Foundation's new campaign clip has been released. The Mary Foundation's new campaign "Få øje på ensomhed" focuses on loneliness among young people. More and more people are feeling lonely, and the latest figures in an analysis by the Mary Foundation show that 12% of Denmark's young people aged 16-24 are seriously lonely. The purpose of the campaign is to break the taboo of loneliness and encourage young people to reach out to one another.

In this film, Crown Princess Mary tells why it’s so important that we should do everything we can to overcome loneliness. The campaign videos will run on the social media for young people and offer advice regarding what people can do in general to be more aware of their surroundings. The campaign videos were made by The Mary Foundation and Mayday Film. The campaign started yesterday and will continue in the next few weeks.

I find it painful to hear her speak Danish as well. I find Danish to be a rather unique and beautiful language and Mary butchers it. I do understand, and I’m sure Danes understand, that those who learn it as a second language may never quite get the accent. I get that. But Mary has adopted this faux English accent  for speaking in English, which is bad enough, but to me it sounds like she was determined to learn Danish without losing that faux accent. Other married ins don’t sound so phony. I rather enjoy listening to Alex or Marie speak. Plus Mary speaks Danish the way we speak in English but Danish has a sort of rhythm to it that Mosh seems to refuse to adapt to.

Why does everything seem like a vanity project with her? Not that loneliness isn't something to address but you know other people are doing the work and instead of supporting other people's work she is centering herself it's really gross but that's Mary.

This project is certainly nothing for her. If I were a lonely person Mary for sure would be the last one I'd call.

Not everyone has the same sense of languages and / or are so easy at picking up (for them) foreign languages.

As an native Dutch speaker (with knowledge of Low Saxon, German and English, among others), I am able to decipher several words and the like in Danish. However, I understand that the correct pronunciation of Danish is on a completely different level and difficult.

In the Netherlands, people, often (local) celebrities, use intensive language courses to get a grip on a foreign language. A very famous one is with "de nonnetjes in Vught" (= a la "the nuns in Vught"). If I am correct, Maxima took some Dutch lessons there. But I also suspect that she has also immersed herself in the language, so that she can learn it as quickly as possible (and as much as possible). She still has a vague and noticeable accent, but she is fluent in Dutch. And by the way, I have often heard from foreign colleagues (with or without Dutch as a second language) that they are surprised at how many regional languages / dialects / clear accents occur in Dutch in such a small country as the Netherlands.


https://nl.wikipedia.org/...leninstituut_Regina_Coeli

"...Regina Coeli (Latin: Queen of Heaven) is a language institute in Vught.

The school was founded in 1903 as a boarding school for girls by the Canonesses of Saint Augustine, who had emigrated from France.

From 1962, the school was associated with a language practical, from which the current institute emerged. The institute is still known as 'Nuns of Vught'...."

July 13
Yrma attended the opening of HRC44 panel in Geneva
She gave a virtual opening speech for the annual panel debate on women’s rights during the UN Human Rights Council’s 44th session in Geneva. In September 2018 Denmark was for the first time elected for the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) for a period of three years (2019-2021).

As a member of the HRC Denmark play an active role in the work of the Council by taking part in votes on resolutions during the sessions. Denmark in particular seeks to be a strong voice for the promotion of women and girls’ rights, indigenous peoples’ rights and for the prevention of torture.

-> August 19
Crown Princess Mary will release sea rays from the Kattegat Center in Grenå on 19 August.

It will be the Crown Princess' first official task as president of the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature in Denmark.

This is stated in a press release from the organization.

The release of sea stingrays takes place because the Danish stock of stingrays is threatened. This is problematic because predators play an important role in the rest of marine life.
