You are right, the BT article confirms what you are saying.

Here's another article with a few pics:

Thank you, Muhler, so our guess wasn't too bad

Here's another BB article about it:


** Kronprinsesse Mary i skoven med børnene **

And another one from purepeople:

** La princesse Mary de Danemark promène sa grossesse au naturel ! **

It would be great some kind of translation.

Thank you, Paty

Mary may have said too much this time.

Notice at 01.15!!

Towards the end of the video Mary was asked whether she is going to be a queen this year. She replied: "No, I'm going to be a mother this year.". Then it all turned into a lot of general happy chatting.

She confirmed that Frederik is looking forward to to the twins.
The last part was basically a lot of very leading questions from the forest-helpers.

That's all I have time for right now.
I may translate more later.

ADDED: Here are a number of the things Mary said. First the standard rap as to be expected when a royal is asked about a project she is attending and wish to put focus on. In the second half she is bombarded with a lot of questions and remarks. The forest-helpers certainly follow her and her family!
Q: What does she think of the project?
M: "I think it's an (*) really good project which has had some very good results. Which is an advantage for both the forest and for those who use the forest and also for those who forest-helpers who contribute with some really good effort in making the forest look better and help tidying up and they get a job that is valuable (meaningful) and they thrive as a result of that. And they love is as far I understand. (00:37) They love being out in the nature and get different tasks and meet different people all the time". Mary is then asked whether there should be more such projects. She just goes on with saying that this is the tenth such project that has been initiated and it would be lovely too see such projects all over the country.

Turning away at 01:05, she as approached by a woman who informs Mary that there has been a question about whether Mary will become queen this year and that she (woman) has said no.
Mary said: "No, I'm going to be a mother of twins this year". A lot of cheering!
The forest helper to her right asks: "Will it be two girls or two boys". (01:25) Mary teasingly replies: "That remains to be seen. I won't te-ell".

Amidts the general chatter, she points out that she may require two arms and that they (the midwives I believe) say that they (the twins) often come early.

At 02:10 she is asked: "How about Frederik will he be happy to have two more"? Mary replies: "Yes. He is very excited. We all are. We look incredibly much forward to it". Then she is encouraged to take him out here in the forest. And Mary explains that he would probably very much like to see the the work they have done and that he may come at some point.

(*) She made a similar and very typical grammatical error here and she has a few problems with the endings of some of the words.

A wonderful clip, isn't it? You simply can't help getting in a better mood.

ADDED: Brief summary of article in Billed Bladet #45, 2010.
De har det godt derinde - They are well in there.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Along with the CP-chief of court, Christian Schønau, Mary went to Boserup Forest, near Roskilde. Here she appointed eleven new forest-helpers, all in the 30's. The forest helpers, three women and eight men, are a part of a new project for mentally handicapped. Here in the forest they will help tidying up, assist the regular forresters, act as guides, keep an eye on camp fires when children are visiting and so on. Except of course use heavy or dangerous machinery.
While a kindergarten and children from a local SFO (*) looked on, Mary handed out nametags to each of the new forest-helpers as a sign of their new official status. When one of them got his/her tag, the others cheered loudly.
This is now the tenth such project in DK. (**) With Mary were also Minister of Evironment, Karen Ellemann and mayor of Roskilde, Poul Lindor.
One of the who is seen close to Mary in many of the photos, was eight year old Claudia. I mention her, because she was looking so serious in all the pics and clips.

(*) Skolefritidsordning = Where children can stay after school until the wish to go home or until their parents come home. My youngest is a member of a SFO.

(**) With forest-helpers I presume, because there are lots of similar protected jobs all over DK.

What a lovely little clip and again thank you for the translation.
Mary seems very at ease and chats very freely which is nice to see especially as some say she comes across as cold or stand offish in still photos.

Slightly off topic now, but I would love to be able to speak a 2nd language with the ease Mary does. I'm in the process of trying to learn German as my husband's family speak it fluently. It's v frustrating to hear your name mentioned in conversations and not know what is being said about you!!

She always looks so at ease when talking to people. She seems to try and draw them out to speak with her. I love her with the children. Always that little extra attention for them. She is just lovely. Thank you again Muhler

Lizy, I know what you mean - it's not only frustrating but it also makes paranoia when you don't know language and can only understand your name.

But back to topic - it was yes very nice to see Mary talking so easily like she had known those people for years. I wish to be able to communicate so easily too. Surely there have been many personal help about good communication skills but surely Mary isn't person who is shy or unsecure (at least not from outside). And that helps her definitely very much!

Thanks so much Muhler! Ah ha!!!Mary let the cat out of the bag! So the twins will be born this year as we all suspected and not in January as the official statement said. We shouldn't be surprised I supposed! Her children have been born in the months before the official dates which were given in the press releases of her previous pregnancies! So the twins will be December babies! Now we have to wait and see if the twins will be born in early December, around Christmas Day or more towards New Year's Eve (end of December).

Cool

I don't speak Danish, but I think Mary has done well in learning the Danish language although I realize she still makes errors. I learned German in high school and I can still read a little bit here and there, I regret that I let it lapse.

These days a bit boring without our Mary being out and about. How pathetic does that make me? Oh well, while patiently waiting for the birth, I am thinking of her and wondering if she is keeping warm and hope she puts her feet up a bit. You never know to pass the time our Mary might be reading these forum pages and having a quiet chuckle to herself over the comments.

I just saw Mary on the news.
She was arriving along with Tanja Doky to the Reumert Award of the year.
No Frederik.

She was looking good.

Here is a live-link to DR2 Live player/

You should see Mary from time to time.

Hope this can be seen outside DK.

(I suggest you cut the sound, that makes it less unbearable... The Reumert of the Year Award is very much like similar awards all over the world. I.e. shouldn't-we-all-pad-each-other-on-our-backs-and-agree-on-how-magnificent-we-are. DK is in my opinion too small a country to hand out such awards every year. The result is award-inflation).
