Thanks for this Muhler, I will watch out for the news. Our Prime Minister is indeed anxious to increase spending for our much underfunded Navy (btw we have one again and it is now ok to say Royal Canadian Navy) but seeing as a contract for new frigates has been given to shipyards in Halifax and Vancouver, I am not confident the Danish frigate will join our navy.

A video without sound from TV2.
Kronprinsesse Mary navngav krigsskib - TV 2 Nyhederne

Video WITH sound from TV2 Fyn: http://www.tv2fyn.dk/article/325982:Mary-paa-Lindoe
Notice at 00:18, the Colour March is played, it also a salute. - To Mary.
Notice when she is announcing the name of the frigate. She says: "Her Majesty the Queen has resolved (resolveret) that the ship shall have the name Niels Juel". She has a distinct accent but to me she pronounces "resolveret" like a native. - I've noticed it before, in the middle of a sentence she pronounce a word in crystal clear Danish without accent.

No LiW around, instead an adjutant from the navy.
And Mary was much more certain about what to do this time. You may recall that she was slightly hesitant when she named the Home Guard vessel in Kalundborg. - Practise makes perfect.
Looking at her you'd be forgiven for believing she was born a princess.

- Some use the argument that Mary and people like her aren't real royalty. She only married into her position. Well, I don't find that point entirely valid. All royal families, all dynasties, started with the first one - who wasn't a royal or noble.

Good for the employment figures as well.
It's good you have a "real" Canadian navy again. It has a very proud history for such a young navy.

That´s right, "resolveret" is crystal clear danish

I love hearing how Mary's accent continues to evolve. Does anybody know if she speaks Danish or English in the comfort of her own home?

Judging from her mastery of Danish and that she obviously thinks in Danish I'd say she speaks Danish almost all the time now. - I remember some of you commented that Mary seems to have to switch from Danish to English, even when speaking English, as was the case recently at the UNICEF centre.

My guess is that she sometimes went almost "schizophrenic" when watching a programme/film in English, since they are all subtitled. She'll inevitably be reading and listening at the same time.
At least for the first few years, until her profficiency in reading Danish became so good, she automatically reads and listen effeortlessly at the same time.

It was Danica May Camacho, a girl born in Manilla, Philippines on October 30/31 around midnight.
Of course she's not been the number 7 Billion, as you can't count that for sure, it's been a symbolic
selection. Journalists and UN officials have visited the girl and her parents and presented them a
scholarship for later studies.

I heard that there were three "symbolic" babies and one "true" (haha) 7 billionth baby, a girl named Nargis Kumar, born in India. Read article...

The Crown Princess looks lovely. Billed-Bladet says that Mary has a cold, and blew her nose a couple times. Alas, so do I, and it's not a nice one! Hope she gets better soon.

Apparently both mentioned babies are being considered for the Seventh Billion Baby title. Where did you hear that Danica got money from the UN? I personally think that isn't right.

Quote:
On the Day of Seven Billion, the group Plan International symbolically marked the birth of the 7 billionth human with a ceremony in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh where a birth certificate was presented to a newly born baby girl, Nargis, in order to protest sex-selective abortion in the state. The Indian girl to boy ratio for 0–6-year-olds is at 914 girls per 1000 boys nationwide, with Uttar Pradesh's one of the lowest at 889 girls for every thousand boys.
Other babies selected include Danica Camacho, of Manila in the Philippines and Wattalage Muthumai, of Colombo, Sri Lanka

Not much surprising that there has been a kind of competition between different countries
The UN has chosen the girl I've mentioned. The sun has another article with the correct information:


** sun article ** dailymail article **

I don't understand why you find the information doubtful, I think that a scholarship as a present is a quite
typical UN idea. You can find the information in the sun article above, but I've originally read it on trustworthy
German news sites.


Besides that, we should of course get back on topic of this thread

One last comment, then I'll stop.
1; I don't think that child or her family should have received any money simply for being born at the right time.
2; All the articles I have read say that Danica is one of the seven UN chosen symbolic babies, so why she has been singled out to receive such attention and money is unfair IMO. You should read the stories about the Six Billionth baby who the UN abandoned.
3; A little note, I find it strange that the 5th, 6th and 7th Billionth babies all seem to be born in perhaps third world countries. America, UK, European countries don't seem bothered in that competition.

Going back on topic now,

Maybe she needs to dress more warmly...like a cover up her legs with tights or pants or a long coat...

The weather is comparatively mild right now, so she could do without a coat for such a visit. And having children at Christian and Isabella's age who go to pre-school and kindergarden, you are at a permanent risk of catching colds - I know from experience. Warm clothes doesn't help that unfortunately.

I'm sure that tights would help. And would make outfit more elegant.
