I like that dress that Mary wore when she met Victoria. But perhaps it should have been more formal, I don't know. However, she looks rather skinny. I hope she isn't losing too much weight. She can be a buff bride but add some more muscle tone!

It's nice to see her smile naturally and she always look nice when she smiles

But I must say, I'm not a big fan of hunting for fun--it just seems cruel to me.

In the second picture down from the hunting pics, who is the woman Henrik is holding onto? At first I thought it was Mary, but on closer inspection, it is obviously not her.

And I agree sunlesstanning - Mary does seem much nicer and prettier when she smiles naturally, rather than the forced looking smile she had on her face the day of the engagement. (Although I imagine I would fake a smile, too, after several hours of posing for photographers&#33

Mary looks as though she's enjoying herself more (the natural smile) and she looks quite nice! The tweeds and off-white pashimina/wrap are a good look for her.

mmmm ... I wonder if Mary got inducted into all the finer points of hunting ?
- beating the line (I did that once in Germany) to get the deer to run.
- helping Fred by holding his shooting piece.
- confirming the points on the antlers that Fred counted off on.
- supervising the cleaning (gutting and so on).
- a victory schapps :)

Deer is what they hunt. Naturally because there are no predators around, it helps to cull the herd to rid it of the weak or the soon to weakened. Boars are also hunted.

And in all likelihood you eat meat ..... so ?

It is still very popular to hunt deer and boar in Europe. For instance it is very popular to hunt boar on St. Hubertus Day in Poland. It's cultural and a way of getting friends together.

The royals seems happy. It's nice that Mary is joining the activities of her future family. It's like they are close. Mary also looks stunning on those pictures.

How come Joachim and Alexandra were not present during the hunting? Were they very busy?? :(

Aint that something !

... I noticed the one lad also had some medals on his chest ... does that mean holding an umbrella is his reward for having been in a dangerous place (Afghanistan) ?

:important: These are early days - but you will have to get used to the idea - that there will be many, many royal events to come - where Prince Joachim and his wife Princess Alexandra will not be invited - whereas Crown Prince Frederik and the future Crown Princess Mary will attend.

Perhaps hunting is a bit too brutal for the two young princes, perhaps that's why Joachim and Alex didn't go. Yerk... killing.... yes I think they are too young.

Kronprins Frederik og Mary til Grønland


Kronprins Frederik og Mary Donaldsons første officielle rejse går til Grønland. Sammen med dronning Margrethe og prins Henrik rejser det nygifte kronprinsepar i juni til Nuuk for at være med, når grønlænderne fejrer Hjemmestyrets 25 års jubilæum.

Hofchef Per Thornit siger til Ritzau, at hoffet sammen med Hjemmestyret i øjeblikket er i gang med at udarbejde et program for besøget. Foreløbig ligger det kun fast, at den kongelige familie skal være til stede ved jubilæumsfesten i Nuuk den 21. juni. Efter festlighederne skal kronprinsen og Mary sandsynligvis rejse rundt.

I Grønland glæder Landstingets formand, Jonathan Motzfeldt, sig over, at kronprinsen har valgt, at grønlænderne skal være de første, der får officielt besøg.

- Det er fantastisk glædeligt, at det er Grønland, kronprinsen og Mary Donaldson besøger først. Vi vil modtage dem på den bedst tænkelige måde. Majestæten og prins Henrik kender vi jo og har et godt forhold til. Det har vi også til kronprins Frederik og nu glæder vi os til at hilse på den nye kronprinsesse, siger Jonathan Motzfeldt til Ritzau.

Greenland? I feel sorry for Mary on that. After Greenland, it's on to Hobart! Now that's a long flight!
