Would it kill someone to paint a traditional court portrait of the Crown Princess?!

This painting is agreeable, but something with an defineable prestige and presence would be wonderful.

For me I see the Aussie portrait as a traditional one but that just me.

You said it. 'Aussie' portrait. It isn't Danish and does not reside in Denmark which is why I think one should be commissioned of Mary at court, dripping in diamonds, with the Order of the Elephant and looking every bit the Crown Princess.

Contemporary art is good, I like it, but it can get a bit 'much' when it's the only style that's being employed.

Thanks for the pics, Iceflower.

I think the artist captured the particular expression Mary has in her eyes well.

It's difficult to explain. Slightly melancholic I'd say and so is the expression in Frederik's eyes, just more melancholic.

You are most welcome as always


A nice surprise:

According to the official calendar the Crown Prince couple was expected to officially attend the International Friendly
between Denmark and Australia at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen today, June 2. But Christian replaced his father
and surely enjoyed it a lot (especially as Denmark has won 2:0 ):

it was stated on the official calendar that Frederik and Mary were going to attend the Denmark vs. Australia soccer game today, June 2nd.

I was on ESPN sports here in the US and they wrote about princess Mary and her loyalty not being tested in front of the Danes since Denmark won 2-0.

"The result ensured that Princess Mary, who was in the crowd at Parken Stadium, did not have to worry about her loyalty being tested in front of her subjects."

i thought this was funny that she was mentioned in a sports article

Mary left the match before the second half because she and Frederik were attend Fritz Schur's 60th birthday party. Christian stayed till the match was over.

Great surprise indeed. Christian must of had a great time. Any idea why Frederik couldn't make it?

I thought Mary would attend the friendly between Denmark and Australia. Of course, Denmark won.

Nice that Christian went along as well and scored a Socceroo's jersey.

Frederik didn't attend Schur's birthday party as well. My guess: he was ill.

Yes, a nice surprise. Christian certainly looked excited when they arrived. Pleased that he was given his own little Socceroos jersey
They just showed Mary on the early news, at the match, she looked lovely.

Maybe it's the way he's dressed but Christian seems so grown up all of a sudden. Hope he had a good time at the game.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2012.
Christian klar til kamp - Christian ready for the match.
Written by our sports reporter Malan Vincent Joensen.

Ax Frederik was down with a summer-flu and couldn't take Christian to the soccer match (that was also the reason why Frederik didn't go the birthday party with Regent Couple and Mary), Mary stepped in. And shortly before play off they arrived hand in hand. Mary said: "I'm looking very much forward (to the match)".
Once arrived Christian was equipped with a scarf in the Danish colours. He was however a bit unsure about the proper way to wear such a scarf but after a couple of trials and a bit of help from mother, it was wrapped warmly around his neck.
However, Mary left her son in the intermission, as she was to join the Regent Couple at a birthday party for the seriously heavyweight within Danish commerce, Fritz Schur.

The match was a friendship match between Denmark and Australia as a warm up for the European Championships. Denmark (naturally) won....

This event was originally scheduled for Frederik&Mary (not for Frederik&Christian). So, it was Christian who stepped in for his ill father, not Mary.
I am always amazed to see that journalists don't seem to check the basic facts nowadays.

In all fairness. Another BB journalist did actually write en passant that Christian stood in for his dad. - In a different article, which I didn't write a summery of. (All in all there were around ten articles and notes about the DRF this week).
When you read the article about Christian and Mary at the soccer match, you (well, I) get the clear impression that Mary stepped in.

This looks like something that I would throw on my fire.
It must be very difficult to smile and say, 'It's lovely?' I would not be impressed.
