Well, i am not sure if this is necessary

You don't have to worry: Mary will most probably not be recognized by people outside Denmark. There might be a chance that some people in Australia recognize her but most pepole in this universe do not have a clue who she is. Ask anybody who is not a member of this board.

I was referring to the photos on the street in London showing Princess Mary with the lady in an orange top jacket do not include a born princess from what I saw. Perhaps the photos during the ceremony show Princess Benedikte.
I have to go back and check the photos from the ceremony.

I do not know but for a CP to walk about in London with no bodyguard is kind of risky. Especially of there is a photographer who recognises or follows her and snaps photos. I find it dangerous.

Santacruz, You are absolutely correct. Not only aren't the CPs recognized most people don't care about them! Resulting from a bet, an ex-co-worker and myself conducted a small survey during Feburary 2008 in New Jersey, New York and Illinois. We showed photos of Royals to over 100 people working in government and private offices (of whom we knew). Documented all in detail. Very few knew Mary, Maxima or Letizia when they were not with their husbands. Mathilde of Belgium and Mete-M of Norway were not recognized at all and most didn't even know their husbands.

Everyone knew some of the British Royals and P Grace of Monacos children. The shock to me was that over 70% knew Victoria of Sweden. Why I just don't understand!

Dutch Prince W-A came in at 50% recongization but Maxima just 15% when not with him. Felipe was 45% whereas Letizia only 17% alone. Mary & Fred only 10% when together. Prince Charles was 98% along with his son William, but not so much Harry.

Anyway, I lost the bet big time as I was sure that people would know "heads" of other countries!

Now the comments on the appearance and overall demeanor of the young Royals was quite a shock to me, but you will have to do your own personal survey for that!

Do these people in your study have any connection to Sweden. There are millions of people with Swedish background in the US - San Francisco bay area over 250,000 alone. Swedes are generally very informed about Sweden including the royal family. Even americans with swedish blood 2-3 generations back are generally interested. Besides Victoria have made many trips to US for Swedish events.

I'm not at all surprised. These countries are mostly small and there is no reason why people from another continent should be familiar with their leaders. I couldn't name a lot of South American politicians, I'm sure!

Don't be worried, Odette! The safety arrangements are very strict without doubt. Part of that bodyguard-thing is that people don't even know who is a bodyguard. There is safety personnel (or whatever they are called in english) all around the area Crown Princess Mary is walking.

Thank you. Regardless of how many Americans may recognie or care about the royals, I am sure there are plenty of crazies who for some reason or the other would come up to a royal and do them harm.
