DRWs review: Mary in 2006

Mary has had a busy year being a new mother, getting back to work, and now has the happy news of a new baby on the way. Mary made a visit to Prague and a much covered and commented upon visit to Vollsmose in Odense. Mary has consolidated her relationships with organisations of which she is patron and made many visits and supportive efforts of behalf of many organisations for which she is patron.

In the morning Mary attended an International Nursing Conference and the official announcement followed that afternoon It's official! Mary is pregnant around 3.30pm local time on 26 October 2006. Mary appeared the next day at the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Hungary 1956 gala as the patron of the Danish Refugee Council.

On August 29 Mary visited Vollsmose, Odense. It was declared a great step towards bringing together different groups within Denmark.
