And wouldn't you know. Another article by Daily Mail. This time about the 200th anniversary for compulsory schooling: Princess Mary tours Denmark playground with groups of giggling schoolkids | Daily Mail Online

- Why oh why do English and American papers use headlines and link-titles like "Denmark playground" or worse: "Turkey president"?? Do they think their readers are ignorant? Or are they just sloppy?
Some of it is due to spellcheck, etc., but mostly it's carelessness. I think newspapers were more accurate when they had human proofreaders. As to the Daily Mail, I do check out their articles for the pictures and the reader comments, but I can see where they got their nickname - the Daily Fail.

But it is sad.
How can you expect children to learn to spell, let alone bother, if the papers routinely write headlines like Japan government?
Third graders would giggle loudly if one of their classmates wrote that.

But if it's a consolation the papers here in DK are just as bad. Spellcheck and grammar is out the window.

Thanks.

I understand Mary being presented the award will be shown live on ARD.
So those of us able to watch German TV should be able to see it.

Thanks Principessa

Congratulations to our Mary, it's well deserved! She has long made a good and successful work with the Mary Foundation. I guess we will see a proud Frederik attend the event with his wife...

A little more on the Bambi Award, from Billed Bladet #42, 2014.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know by now the award will be presented in Berlin on 13 November and aired live on TV (ARD). It is the first in Germany that a crown princess will be live on tv, as such it is expected that some six million viewers will follow tha award ceremony.
(Plus some of the couple of million or so Danes who can watch German TV as well).
Mary will, as you know, get the award for her work puting focus on the plight of women, not least women who suffer abuse.

She is, as far as I understand, the first royal who will get the Bambi Award itself.
Queen Silvia and Queen Rania have each recieved an honorary award.

Among those who have also recieved the Charity Bambi Award are:
Elton John, Nelson Mandela and Muhammed Ali.

Our diligent Mary hasn't slept long this Saturday morning, she participates in these hours in the opening of the Scandinavian finale for FIRST LEGO League, Copenhagen:

She was received with cheers, songs and a somewhat different flower girl - Mary's flower girl was in fact a robot that was programmed to present her with flowers

First picture - Mary receiving flowers from her new flower girl:

Call me oldfashioned, but except perhaps in the eyes of some nerds it ain't particularly cute.

Video from BB:

In her speech Mary tells us (in fluent Danish with Copenhagen dialect ) that she also knew the Lego brick in Tasmania and about her own children Mary says in her speech: I know from my own children how happy they are for technologies and how easy it is for them to use them.

Article, pics and video from Royalista: A flower robot welcomes Crown Princess Mary | Royalista

And as Roskilde pointed out to me the flower-bot sadly hasn't got the charm of WallE.

Thanks, Iceflower.

Here is a Daily Mail article: Princess Mary in leather skirt as she opens new Lego League Games in Denmark | Daily Mail Online

This time the readers seem more interested. The articles about the movies about Mary's past generated few if any posts, but what she's actually doing that seems much more interesting.
What does "legs eleven" mean?

Legs eleven = used to describe a woman's legs as sexy. Rhymes with legs that go all the way up to heaven.
Urban Dictionary: legs eleven

A quick google research. So now we two have learned something new today Muhler. Tonight you must charm Mrs Muhler with a "legs eleven, Mrs"

I see.

Don't think I'll try that one. Poetry is better:
Ligesom solen vil jeg gerne,
give dig kys på hår og mund,
du mit lys, min smukke stjerne,
jeg er din fra denne stund.
- Eat dust, George Clooney.
