Very well said! I agree with you 100%. Well done !

It seems to me that Mary is a very confident and independent princess. She has a warm heart and outgoing personality. She is very sweet, caring, down to earth and compassionate. I like Mary very much. :p

In particular, I like the way how Mary interacts with people proactively. She does always smile, go and talk to people and shake their hands and greet them small, young or old. When Mary and Frederik visited Sydney this year, I went to see them at Opera House. I was very impressed by Mary's warmth, friedliness and compassion. Mary took her time to meet and greet almost everyone there! She seemed very patient, caring, compassionate and considerate towards others. In fact. Mary's hand is very warm and soft!

Mary is a very good ambassador for Denmark and is doing a great job as a Crown Princess of Denmark. We are sooooo proud of Mary's hard work, good work and her dedication to her role.

Well done ! Mary !

Yes, that's what I was trying to get at!! (wasted paragraphs trying to describe it and you did it in one sentence. Great job *thumbsup* )

I just had a quick look at the DRF calendar.... o my, Mary fans will be over the moon! There are 27 events listed there right now, and Mary's in 11 of them! Considering that she's 7 months pregnant, and she's doing more than the other non-pregnant members, to me indicates that Mary's pregnancy is going ok! (not to disparage the other members of course, but just showing that Mary's doing ok with 2 months to go).

Anyway, I always thought before that Mary was painstakingly doing the research and laying the groundwork for the things she was going to be involved in before (and she herself recognised and affirmed this when she said that she needed to know more about causes she will be supporting as it will be for life). She has now done her research, chosen (most of) her causes, that she's taking part in them. Also, we know that she attends non-official meetings (i.e. press not invited or told of it) as we have seen some pics taken by non-media people and the event is not listed on the calendar.

Oh yeah check this out (it's in Danish though)... Mary's schedule for the second half of August:

Danish royal visit cost $350,000


18:28 AEST Thu Aug 18 2005
AAP
Crown Princess Mary's visit home to Australia in March cost taxpayers almost $350,000, new figures show.

The federal government paid more than $115,000 on travel for the former Tasmanian real estate agent and her husband, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, during the 13-day trip in February and March this year.

Accommodation for the royal couple and their bodyguards - also provided by the Australian government - cost more than $62,000.
While I understand the complaints, the increase in tourism dollars going both ways and increased interest in Australia in Denmark and Denmark in Australia will vastly overshadow the costs of this one trip.

Very beautifully stated ! I completely agreed with you.

I am so glad to see for once that definitely my taxes monies are being well spent on something that I totally agree with !!!!!!! :p

Frederik and Mary's marriage and their visit to Australia this year have brought me and some of Australians with great joy and happiness.

I am soooooo happy that Frederik has chosen Mary as his Crown Princess. They are so affectionate and " in love ". Frederik and Mary are a dream couple and a great team. They compliment each other very well.

May GOD bless Frederik and Mary and Denmark and Australia for ever and ever !!!!!! :p

Amen :p

I agree Ennyllorac. I don't see anything "cold" about Mary either, and there is definitely nothing wrong with someone being sure of themselves.

It was pretty good, huh?! I thought at first that it would only be royal watchers (like us) who would be interested in the visit... that people would follow the visit through message boards such as this, but heaps of people went to see them in real life. And everyone - the newspapers, television stations, etc - followed their visit. It reminded me of the Sydney 200 Olympics in a way - people across Sydney shared this one common interest. I thought it was all pretty exciting. :)

I really love that dog - soooo cute and docile!

But I think Ziggy's right for the crown prince couple though. They can have a docile dog later on in life, but right now, they need a hyper active one like Ziggy!!

Mary looks fantastic as usual.

She's got a natural grace, and a calm kind of confidence that makes it a joy to watch her. Lucky Danes !

I must say that I'm very impressed by Crown Princess Mary's hectic schedule! She is so far into her pregnancy, and yet she is the most hardworking person in the Royal Family right now. I'm also a bit surpised that Fredik doesn't have more in his schedule, but maybe when the baby will be born he will do more and Mary might have a little time out or so, or at least take it very easy and spend time with the baby.

I'm translating the calendar, you can see it here.

Thanks for translating the DFR calendar, GrandDuches :)

Yes, a bit suprising NO CP Frederick on the calendar often, hopefully that will change.
