Princess Mary of Denmark promotes anti-bullying program

03/31/2008 at 08:40 PM ET

Princess Mary of Denmark, 36, visited a Copenhagen school on Friday to help promote the initiative Save the Children Better Buddies, a program that hopes to end bullying in Danish schools by teaching children to care about one another.

As a mother of two children — Prince Christian, 2, and Princess Isabella, who will be turning 1 at the end of April — she has children’s needs close to her heart. The anti-bullying program is based on a similar program that began in Mary’s native Australia.

When some of the students began skipping rope during the visit, Mary was supportive of their efforts and began leaping several inches off of the ground herself. Mary is never shying away from getting into the middle of the action as long as it is for a good cause. She once surprised a group of people by taking off her shoes at a children’s play area and trying out a trampoline at a similar venue.

Mary is married to Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, 39.
