As patron of the event, Crown Princess Mary shared the key role with the evening’s award winners one of them being Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau. All the winners were awarded with the Champions for Change Award for their work promoting women’s and girls’ rights. Princess Mabel was commended for her efforts in seeking to end child marriages.
Wearing a powder pink, pleated dress with a brooch-like detail at the neck, Crown Princess Mary delivered the event’s keynote speech in which she spoke about her recent working visit to Ethiopia and the harsh encounter with circumcised girls from the Afar region.
