Crown Princess Mary met with Minister of Development Rasmus Prehn

Yesterday, Danish Crown Princess Mary met with Minister of Development Rasmus Prehn. The meeting took place at Amalienborg Palace. At the meeting, both the short and long-term consequences of the Covid19 crisis for girls and women's everyday lives around the world, in relation to domestic violence, maternal mortality, child marriages, unwanted pregnancies, and general reproductive health and rights, were discussed.

The Crown Princess and the Minister also spoke about the importance of focusing on the effects of the pandemic on girls and women in the world's poorest countries. In addition, they spoke about their shared concern about the risk of losing the progress of matters relating to girls and women, that has been achieved so far.

  1. The interior designs in Fredrik´s and Mary´s home often leave me baffled. Lots of weird choices, like that wall-art for instance which I find rather odd just by itself, and the way it´s arranged projecting distance next to the door, while at the same time extending around the door frame. I find that rather unpleasant to look at like an optical illusion, not to mention the dark depressing colours. I wouldn´t want that in my living space. I also think that it is almost cruel to put something like that into a historical palace.
    If they then at least had made the interiors coherent and kept the ultramodern theme, but no. They also have a fur rug on the floor that would make sense in a hunter´s lodge (and in front of the couch rather than in a hallway); their large table is partly shiny and partly what seems to be unfinished wood or some sort of protective cover (with a large spillage?), and at the entrance to the hallway they put curtains? Odd colour as well, they don´t match anything in the room and seem to be gathered at different heights on either side (though that may be due the angle of the photo). The glass sculptures standing on the floor are totally random. And lastly, the large clock clashes with literally everything stylewise, plus its placement is incomprehensible for me - why is it not facing the room? I cannot wrap my head around any of this.

    1. I fully agree. Every time there are photos with their official rooms, I always feel like saying ‘what were they thinking?’. Very disjointed and even if you were to try ‘eclectic ’, you still not just throwing a bunch of things together. Maybe on their own the painting and the grandfather clock could be ‘feature’ decor, but together and with the cowhide and silk drapes - it all looks weird. Very weird in fact.

    2. I find that people now surround themselves with interiors that reflect their personalities and interests; in addition to focusing on their family's comfort and joy.

    3. Don't worry Venessa. It's not important.
      Many more bigger issues to worry about at the moment e.g. coronavirus.
      Anyway, I think it's just a spare room in their home/palace where they are stocking thing to have a car boot sale or garage sale when the beautiful summer weather comes.

  4. You are right Vanessa, very good observation, and if this was a historical palace to visit, this would be quite terrible. Maybe they felt that they don't want to live in pure history only, like living in a museum, completely detached from their life in the 21st century? I admit, maybe this mixture of past and present could have been done differently, it is very singular indeed, but: de gustibus non est disputandum :-)

  5. I think you need to see this artwork by Jesper Christiansen in full to appreciate it. A snippet in this photo doesn't do it justice. Personally, I love the modern interiors that were done in consultation with the historical society - particularly this artwork that is so full of personal symbolism.

  7. CP Marys commitment to women's concerns has always been well documented and rightly so in the pandemic. I just love the ruffled blouse she is wearing, beautiful.
