Mary and Christian were also wearing Greenland's national costume. It wasn't just Fred.

I thought Greenland wasn't a part of Denmark in any way these days. Total independence no? I do like how the family frequently visits though, for tradition's sake.

Greenland has been semi-autonomous since 1979, but Denmark is still in charge of foreign and defence policy. Like the Faroe Islands, Greenland has two members sitting in the Folketing (the Parliament)

Can someone please *explain* to me, Mary's outfit on the hunt day lunch...the grey coat and red skirt thing...

Now to me it looks like a dark top, red print skirt and grey overcoat...but it has flaps that make it look like it is a suit (jacket and skirt)...so I am confused...it is a grey skirt with a red print panel or what?

Someone help me solve the mystery of the "Hunting for answers to the Ladies who Lunch outfit"

Yes Xeara (also bbb), I too was puzzled by the effect of a half overcoat with jacket worn on top. Perhaps somebody has seen the outfit before and can tell us all about it.
Mary does look very happy and confident, doesn't she? Good to see.

My guess is: They did most of their Christmas shopping in Australia.

Hi laurixa,

the article says that Frederik and Mary have invited the whole family to their own home, Kancellihuset,
on the "Little Christmas Eve", which is on Saturday, Dec. 23th.
On Christmas Eve they all will celebrate in Fredensborg palace, as planned.
(comment: Kancellihuset belongs to Fredensborg palace though, but they mean the main part)
There will be 29 family members which doesn't happen often.
And two Christmas trees already stand beside the door of Kancellihuset to welcome the guests.
(as you can see in the picture)

I wonder if they, or any of the RF's are sending out Christmas Cards this year? Seems odd that we have not seen anything as of yet. Oh well.
