Some large and great pictures of Mary from today
And lovely with encouraging smiles from our Crown Princess because the match today was pretty depressing for us Danes

The comments on the sports news are less than flattering....

I understand that the guy in the background of this pic, removed his silvermedal almost right after recieving it. - That's not proper behavior.
The Danish team lost because the Spanish team was better, period! They've only got themselves to blame, so stop acting like a spoiled child.

Not quite. A dane formalized by putting some rules into writing but the game has been played in very varied parts of the world prior to that. Even in the middle ages in France.

Did Mary fly straight to Barcelona from Davos or did she drop in at home first and then fly out. Anyone know?

Thank you to everyone who posted photos. Commiserations to those Danish supporters, congratulations to the Spanish.

You are right about proper behaviour when not winning anything. I am trying to instil this in my youngsters but when someone in a national team behaves inappropriately it lets that person down and makes parenting harder!!

Mary was in Davos only until 24 January.
So I guess she flew in from Denmark on Sunday and back to Dk afterwards, as she has an event today.

My guess too. I'm sure she has been at home with the children.

But what a busy Sunday, with flying trips back and forth within a few hours. I won't blame Mary if she looks a bit tired today But I'm glad she traveled to Spain, so there at least was something good about watching the match yesterday

But big congratulations to Spain!

Thanks FasterB, I like the photo showing Crown Princess Mary as the only one singing, this of course would be when the Danish National Anthem was playing.


Can one of our Danish friends please help? The player that took his silver medal off (Muhler's post # 303) is he the same person that Prince Christian and Princess Isabella had the photo taken with at the Olympics, also the photo of Price Christian doing his Usain Bolt pose. It is just that I think I recognise the face. I have been trying to find the photos of C&I without luck.

Off topic, but isnīt a kiss on the hand the most perfect way of greeting between a gentleman and a lady?
I think Iīm a hopeless old-fashioned romantic

It most certainly is. Prince Charles greets ladies in the same way; it just warms my heart to know chivalry isn't dead.

I think both Prince Felipe and King Juan Carlos always formally greet ladies like that-good family teaching
End of the OT, I guess

Especially if the lady wears jeans.

Yes, he is. And he also took off his silver medal in 2011.
But sorry, I can't help you with pics.

Yes, you are right. His name is Mikkel Hansen. Here are the pictures you were searching for

Whether a greeting with a kiss on the hand is a good thing depends greatly on the dental hygiene of the man, I have to say.

I have great respect for CP Mary's composure yesterday, I would not have been able to be so stoic after watching such a horrible, horrible match. For the first time in my life I actually walked away from the TV early in the second half of the final, I just couldn't bear to watch it any longer. I'd never imagined the team were capable of playing that badly.

But Mary was really good at giving all the players a smile and comforting pat on shoulder when she handed out the medals. And I have to say it wasn't an easy job. The IHF representative who was supposed to hand out the flowers kept switching between the flowers and the medals and taking several at once, so Mary sometimes had to double back to make sure she greeted all the Danish players. And for both bronze, silver and gold medals they hadn't made enough medals and flowers for everyone, so some of them didn't get any. I don't understand how that can happen at a World Championship, IHF were the only ones who messed up worse than the Danish team yesterday.
But like I said, Mary was good at making sure she greeted everyone and seemed to try and give them all some comforting words.

And from now on I'll try really hard to pretend that match never happened.
Hopefully they'll make up for it when the European Championships are held in Denmark next year.

The gentleman's lips are not supposed to touch the lady's skin. It is just another form of air-kissing.

It sounds like a good idea. I will try to do the same
I dare not think about how my facial expression looked during the match

Here are more great pictures of Mary (and Spanish Felipe) from yesterday. Mary has such a stunning smile!
