Princess Mary visited Neighbourhood Mothers in Copenhagen

Yesterday, on November 28, 2017, Crown Princess Mary visited the Neighbourhood Mothers organisation (Bydelsmødre) in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Neighbourhood Mothers are primarily women with an ethnic minority background, who do a voluntary effort in their local area by supporting isolated and vulnerable women.

  1. It is ironic that this forum is about commenting on beautiful clothes, yet the covered women are wearing such drab attire. Is this how Islam wants its women to look? Can you imagine a world where all women are dressed like that? Such a dull, dull, world.

    1. Sorry Christine, how are purple scarves, a purple dress and a floral dress drab???

    2. No, Islam requires modesty - they look modest but they don't look drab.

  2. Princess Mary wears very appropiate for the occasion, as always does.

  3. Trishy, do you really think the women look stylish, covered from head to toe, albeit some outfits with colour?

    1. I believe their outfits are about modesty not style, which they are entitled to. Their choices of fashion are not relevant to a discussion about Princess Mary's activities and fashion.

    2. Princess Mary and the two ladies sitting at her left in the last foto look perfectly modest to me, even tough they go with their hair uncovered, and they don't look drab. IMO drabness doesn't depend on colour or lack of it.

    3. I agree, Sakurahime. Modesty should be a matter of dress and style and attitude. I really don't understand the concept of having to cover oneself from head to toe, even part of the face in some cases. And many Moslem women don't do that so I assume there is room for interpretation.
      But I suppose we can't criticize choices although I really hope the choices are freely made and not coerced (even subtly)by husband or family

  4. La ropa de Mary es horrible, pero si lo que quiere es igualarse con sus invitadas, lo ha conseguido porque se ve lúgubre.

    Yes, and what about women that must put on the full burqah, with only their eyes open, and like in Afghanistan, where they have to look through a "net" with those blue tent like outfits

    1. Yes, but they aren't featured here. These are Muslim women who are part of Danish society, and who are doing some great community work, wearing clothes that reflect their beliefs.

      It's a separate discussion, I think.

    2. Franny, is it their beliefs, or the men’s belief? If this blog is only about gushing over clothes worn by royals, then it is limited and boring. Why can’t we also comment about other people the royals are with? Yes, the women are doing important work through their volunteering. But I wish they would free themselves from the constraints of their clothes, which deprive them of Vitamin D and restrict movement.

    3. I didn't say we couldn't comment on other things... although I'm not sure if that Hellen's intention?

      But I don't think that full burqa or niqab as worn in Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan is quite the same as long tunics and a headscarf worn by women with lives outside their homes - that's what I meant by a different discussion.

      And yes, sometimes it's a male imposed form of control but a lot of the time in Europe, women have chosen to start wearing the headscarf as a form of cultural identity in the face of being made to feel "other" - or that seems to be the case in the UK, anyway.

      Anyway, I need to be careful what I say - last time I went "off piste" and didn't stick to royal fashion I was told I to stop being the politically correct police.

  6. It’s ok to have discussion Franny, provided there is no offence. I disagree with you, but that’s fine. I appreciate your reply.

  7. Mary looks very lovely here. Like her simple outfit and hairstyle.
    Regarding women in long monocolor tunics and this kind of headscarfs...its different fashion in Europe. As in here women don't have to dress like this, then its natural that they stand out, look different and people may comment.
