Crown Princess Mary said that The Danish National Center for Grief has established a telephone helpline which everyone can call and speak about their concerns.

The Crown Princess continued as the following: “It is natural that you are concerned for your loved ones, especially now that you may not be with them. Grief and worry are hard to handle for us humans, but talking about what's difficult can help. "

The Danish National Center for Grief offers free counseling to anyone who has lost a parent, a sibling, a child or spouse, or people who are relatives of people suffering from severe physical illness. The vision of the organization is that grief must not destroy life.

    I think it's amazing she learned Danish. I had heard it is a difficult language to learn. Not only that but she had to move to the other side of the world and learn a different culture. She really is quite impressive.

    1. I'm glad she was so precise and clear with the pronunciation in this video so that I could understand almost everything. I might be Norwegian, and my written language is basically the same as Danish, but their pronunciation is out of this world... :p

  4. One of the things Crown Prince Frederick admired about Crown Princess Mary was when she spoke English so eloquently and with a almost dark sound, I cannot comment on how she speaks Danish but she has a lovely accent when speaking English. Mary is very educated and has a degree in law for one. I have always been a huge fan of her. She will one day make a great Queen! She is a treasure to her new country....

    1. I'm glad to read that, for the moment, our fellow bloggers aren't pulling her apart because of her accent and grammar mistakes when she speaks Danish. She is lucky to be in the rare group of people who take on a foreign language (as an adult student) and succeed. A good 90 percent or so never make it, like me.
      BUT Anon 5/3/20, 8:08 AM, you must know that when she speaks English (her mother tongue) she speaks it with an accent. She has a southern Australian accent which quickly marks her as not being English.
      I hope she has the time and energy to continue with her charity works.
      One thousand thanks to you dear Princess Mary.

  5. I have also heard it is a difficult language to learn. The CP has done amazingly well. She is a shining light, always so pleasant and cheerful. A real asset.

    1. Danish grammar is fairly easy, and the vocabulary shouldn´t be too challenging for a native English speaker. But the pronounciation is really hard. It is quite remarkable that Danes understand each other at all. A Scandinavian study once found out that Danish kids on average start speaking half a year later than Swedish and Norwegian kids because in Danish, it is so difficult to make out the actual sounds.
