If the rock concert were to benefit some charity then I would agree with the planning, but if for no reason but to improve relations between countries, then I can't see it.

I agree. I don't think charity fundraisers should be the typical ballroom type of affair which the younger set may not see as much fun. Why not liven things up a bit with a rock concert that would have a charitable benefit?

Even if it's not for charity, I think Fredrick and Mary should have some fun too. Fredrick, his entire life, and Mary, since she's been married, have been carrying out royal duties. Hey, if they want to throw a cultural blending concert like that to have fun, why not? I for one wouldn't think any less of them.

I totally agree with you about having fun, everyone needs to have their fair share. It's not exactly an "easy" life they lead. I know that I would never be able to take on the position that Mary has. I suppose the question should be "Who would pay for this concert?" If Mary and Frederick are, then, by all means have the concert. If the governments of the countries are, then I would have to disagree with the concert idea. The exception to the governments paying would be if the concert were charitable.

Thanks pdas for the pics, nice blue colour. The Ēbaby bellyĒ is finally starting to show! Here are pics (Polfoto) from yesterday when Crown Princess Mary, accompanied by her Lady-in-Waiting Countess Bernstorff-Gyldensteen, and Princess Benedikte, attended the exam fashion show of the Margrethe School.

But aren't the Australian taxpayers going to front the bill? if they want to have fun, they can still go to a concert, but on their own and with them paying for it.

I agree with the concert idea, i cant wait!. Royals job is to represent their country (Denmark) and strengthen ties between others, that is what they are doing, but in a more modern way. I like it how they are with the times! That is the mark of success- adapting to the modern world.

What does a concert that the Australian taxpayer will have to pay have to do with strengthening ties between countires. IMO-this is a tacky idea. (Guess they don't have much to do-oops I guess the claws are about to come out)

they just wish not to be old fashioned most probably and want to relate more with people. I see nothing wrong with that.

I think that the concert is probably one of many events being planned for the visit and the tour organizers are probably trying to plan a variety of events to suit many different age groups.The real planning for most of these tours is done behind the scenes by various bureaucrats and I imagine that the danish royals only get to play a small part in all the planning

I donít know about this concert idea. It would be great if the tax payers didnít have to pay for it, but chances are they will. We have so many problems at the moment and I think itís unfair to be spending money on something like this. Iím sure the ties between Denmark and Australia are not going to suffer if this concert doesnít go ahead. But if it must go ahead, then I demand that Kashmir come and play!

Thank you everyone for the photos!

I agree she looks absolutely gorgeous. She is wearing a dress from the Heartmade (by Julie Fagerholt) from the Autumn/Winter 2004 Collection.

I like that outfit the best out of what she's been wearing lately. I think it went well with her skin tone. I also think she looks very pretty with her hair up - it's more elegant looking. :)

I agree with that, this is my favorite outfit of her so far in her list of pregnancy outfits. Let see what she comes up with next.

By the way, Happy Birthday SpiffyBallerina.:) How are old are you?? (If you don't mind my asking )

Well, I live in the western United States, so I have 14 more minutes to go until I'm 20!
Thanks for noticing! :)
