Well, I actually like that portrait. In contrast to the other that was made of her recently, by a Brazilian artist, this is something I wouldn't mind hanging on my wall.

I think he has captured Mary's eyes very well.
Perhaps not so much her mouth.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #24, 2012.
Hvor er jeg flot - How good I look.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

As you know from the pics, Mary went to Frederiksborg Castle (*) to unveil a portrait of herself, made by Gugger Petters.
As always Mary was met by the obligatory flowergirl in the shape of Esther age four, who was very appropriatly dressed in a copy of a costume worn by Christina Ulfeldt, daughter of Christian IV, so we are talking early 1600's.

It was during a visit to New York a couple of years ago that Mary and Frederik saw a portrait of President Obama, also made by Gugger Petters. Mary remebers: "... and I'm very flattered that I'm about to hang next to him here". The Obama portrait is on loan to the museum at Frederiksborg until the end of August.

The portrait of Mary is made from paper torn from Australian, Danish and American newspapers. The result is a 3D effect when you move past the portrait. Mary said: "I'm very impressed about how an expression can change when you move from left to right. From a serious look in the eyes to a smiling look".

Hugger Petters made the portrait based on a meeting with Mary in 2010.

In September the portrait will be moved to another part of the castle, where it will hang next to the portrait made by Ralph Heimans from 2006.

Present were also Per Thornit and his wife.

(*) Where the DRF coat of arms are hanging along with quite a number of portraits. It's one of the most beautiful late Renaissance castles in Europe and absolutely worth a visit.
Frederiksborg Castle and Kronborg Castle are from the same era and in roughly the same style.
Not to be confused with Fredensborg Palace, which is about 200 years younger and a residence.

Considering the medium (torn paper) I think the portrait is fantastic in terms of artistry and skill...and meaning

A 28 pics (now 84 pics)! gallery from Fyens Stiftstidende as a supplement (..)
Blev døbt i champagne: Rosen er navngivet - - Odense

Mary was slightly late and arrived at 17.20 (she would have been driving during rush hour) and here she christened a new rose called Princess of Infinity with champagne.
Mary was showered with homemade presents from girls and she was observed chatting for quite a while with a mother carrying a baby.

- I can inform that TV2 had a brief segment with Mary in their 19.00 news. That means that the regional news have even more. Check TV2 Fyn.

ADDED: The TV2 clip at 19.00: http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/...r.html?forside

The flowerfestival is inspired by Astrid Lindgren, that may explain why we see Pippi Longstocking in one of the pics, not to mention the two less than competent police officers, Kling and Klang.

And we have a clip from TV2 Fyn: http://www.tv2fyn.dk/article/367174:...al?rss&forside

More of Mary today

Look at the lovely weather! Finally, it's good weather in Denmark and then most people start to work and to school after a rainy holiday

Thank you all for the lovely pictures and articles. The weather did, indeed, look beautiful and the crowd looked happy to see the Crown Princess. Mary herself looked to be very pleased to attend. Isn't that the way it goes, rainy during holidays and beautiful weather for work and school.

I notice in one of the pictures that Mary was presented with presents to Vincent and Jospehine, in the form of soccer outfits, complete with their names. (Alas, I can't link directly).

I suggest you recheck the picture links again.

The great thing about royal coverage in the local newspapers is that they within 24 hours tend to upload about 250.000 pictures.

250.000? That sounds a bit too much for one royal day

A couple of trivia from BB of Mary's visit to the flower festival in Odense.

She wore a pearl wrist band from Marianne Dulong.

She was twenty minutes late due to a traffic accident, as such she got a police escort part of the way to Odense to get through the traffic.

She said upon leaving the festival: "It's been a super beautiful flower arrangement. A gorgeous day with sweet smelling and colorful flowers. An altogether fantastic day".
