I honestly couldn't tell what characteristic it is about Mary that people who like her like--I haven't been able to decipher that predominate character trait. Does that make sense?
The reason I like Mary (and Mette-Merit even more) is because they are "unassuming". That, and the fact that the "magic carpet ride" has swept them up. :)

I like Mary, because she´s just perfect for the job. It´s not that she´s outstanding in certain fields. But she seems to be able to adapt to these big new challenges and the expectations from the people.
And I like her, because she seems to love Frederik.
And I like her, because I just like types like her (Here I mean all...styling, look= the very dark hair, the olive skin, the way of thinking-the interview book has impressed me very much...)

Press release (in danish)

Quote:
Legater fra "Crown Prince Frederik Fund"

Offentliggjort fredag d. 18. juni 2004


Den 6. juli 2004 overrækker Kronprins Frederik for 11. gang legater fra Crown Prince Frederik Fund; den folkegave Kronprinsen fik af dansk-amerikanere til sin 25 års fødselsdag, da han studerede ved Harvard Universitetet.

Fondens formål er at yde økonomisk støtte til studerende indenfor samfundsvidenskaberne til ét års studie ved John F. Kennedy School of Government på Harvard.

I år vil der være to legatmodtagere:

Nikolaj Lomholt Svensson

Overbygningsstuderende ved Aarhus Universitets Institut for Statskundskab. Har i forbindelse med studierne været ansat et halvt år ved den danske FN-delegation i New York, hvor opgaverne primært lå i Sikkerhedsrådets regi.

Kasper Graa Wulff

Statskundskabsstuderende ved Københavns Universitet med fokus på internationale relationer. Sideløbende med studier gennemgås en uddannelse som russisk sprogofficer ved Forsvarsakademiet, som forventes færdiggjort i sommeren 2004.

Amalienborg, den 18. juni 2004

P. Thornit
Hofchef

Der vil ikke være adgang for pressen, men fotos fra legatoverrækkelsen kan fås ved henvendelse til fotograf Steen Brogaard, e-mail: steen@brogaard.com.
I think, the most interesting part for LTR-members is, that their will be no admittance for the press. The photographer Steen Brogaard will be present, though.

So ... quite an honour for the recipient of the scholarship ! ? !

This Danish RF .... I am -- through the Greenland Trip, just completed -- gaining an awed appreciation of Margrethe's "public relations" attitude. Very Good.

Yes, I would say, it is an honour. You have to be quite smart to get such a scholarship.

I noticed though, that the receivers this year also has some CV-similarities with CPF. One of them has, like Frederik, served at the danish UN-delegation in NY. The other one has, besides his studies at the university, a parallel career within the defence force.

Well, it is actually just called 'Brudevalsen' - 'Bridal Waltz' or 'Waltz of the Bride'. (I found this translation of the titel somewhere on the www).

It is composed by Niels W. Gade as part a ballet by Bournonville: 'Et folkesagn', 'A Folk Tale'.

I found some info on the ballet in english

Info on Niels W. Gade

On August Bournonville in english

It is a bit funny, because when I saw your question, I realized how danish this tradition must be. I never thought of that, even though of course the ballet is danish. But I can tell you, that 'Brudevalsen' is a part of nearly all danish weddings, not just the royal weddings :)

Mary must be one darn smart girl. I remember reading PF used to be the catch of the uppercurst in Europe. I wonder why both P of Denmark married foreingers, and commoners.

Why would not both P appreciate more from their fellow countrygirls? I wonder.

It seems like both went for the opposite attract, too.
