Yes Lebanon was part of the Ottoman Empire.


I did a tour of the Western Front last year with a number of other History teachers from NSW and the guide we had made a point of showing us graves from the countries I listed as he likes to point that out when some of the non-British descent Australians argue that WWI/Anzac Day etc have no relevance to them. He didn't show us any Danish graves but that doesn't mean there weren't any in either the Australian or New Zealand forces - just that Brad didn't show us any.

Sadly people can be terribly narrow minded.
Australia (and New Zealand not to mention Turkey) wouldn't be what it is today, for better or worse, if it hadn't been for Gallipoli. That some people can claim it's irrelevant today is beyond me. - Find another country to live in then...

Hi Danish posters - is there a post from anyone about the interview CP Mary just did on your "Aftenshowet" TV show? Thanks.

I believe Roskilde posted a link.

BB may have some on what she said this week, I hope so, because it's way easier (and a lot faster!) to translate from a text than from a video.

Has Mary honoring Anzac Day been covered by the Australian press?

Oh, I'm afraid I haven't reached it (I have some busy days this week...)

But it was a good interview and I will soon translate a part I find quite nice.

Thank you Roskilde - I would appreciate that when you are able to do it.

The little bit mentioned in the "Daily Mail/Mail Online" made it see a very personal interview, something very close to CP Mary the person versus CP Mary the publie figure.

I didn't see anything Muhler.

The "Daily Mail/Mail Online" had a good report on it with very good photos - but that would have bypassed most Australians.

Nothing in my daily newspaper or on the TV news.

I didn't see anything on the breakfast shows either, and they cover every man and his cat, and their comings and goings, just to fill in their daily three/four hours of broadcasting, so thank you again for posting about it.

Thanks, Sun Lion.
A pity.

I haven't noticed this being covered in any of the threads.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2015.
Written by Lisbeth grube.

Wearing a dress from Prada Mary showed up for the Charity Ball Friday evening in Copenhagen.
The surplus was donated to Break the Silence, which is about the taboo regarding abuse within relationships.
371 guests attended the charity ball, among the Rebecca Wedell-Wedellsborg, Jean Ahlefeldt Laurvig, Oscar and Britt Siesbye, Christian Stadil from Hummel and Countess Alexandra with an unshaven Martin by her side.
Mary wore the dress seven years ago..

The event raised 1.575.000 DKK and that must be said to be very impressive!
The money were raised by holding an auction over various items and gift certificates. Then it was party time.

------------------------------------------------------------

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2015.
Written by Karina Didriksen.

As you recall Mary took her three youngest to the annual Eco Day, where the cows are let out on grass on farms all over DK.
The reason was actually the 25th anniversary of the Eco-stamp, which has been used as a sign of quality for ecological products here in DK.

Before the cows were let out the children milked a wooden cow, and the children yanked the teats eagerly and milk did come out. So they are approved milkmaids now.
Then it was time to say hello to one of the calves, named Sulla aka 02658. The calf was a bit unruly and while that didn't bother Bella and Vincer, Josephine wasn't that sure it was a great idea.
They were all shown around a bit and the children got a children's tattoo on the hand, but finally the clock said 12.00 and was Isabella who was to cut a red ribbon, so the cows could be let out. Okay, cutting ribbons ain't that easy so mor Mary had to help.

Finally, at long last, the impatient cows were released. (The old cows - who are terrible bullies BTW, when the farmer isn't around. Hidden cameras have proved that recently. -Know perfectly well that lots of humans = fresh grass and fresh air = cool!).
Standing behind a fence the cows poured out dancing and jumping, while Vincent and Josephine climbed up on the fence and yelled: "Ruuun"! In fact Vincent climbed almost on top of the fence and with several tons of cows stampeding by Mary prudently reined in her son. He climbed again later... Whatever he is, he isn't afraid of heights!

On the way back to the car a local boy in the shape of eleven year old Theis Nørgaard went up to Mary and asked for a selfie with her. "Corwn Princess Mary, may I have a selfie with you (informal you)". Mary replied: "If you are quick".
Afterwards Theis told our reporter: "It was really cool but also nerve-raking and it had to go really fast, so I just had time to take the picture and then move away again.
I will send the picture to all I know and then I will print it out and hang it on the wall at home".

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2015.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

On Anzac Day Mary attended a memorial at Kastellet, the military HQ of Copenhagen fortress and a place she knows well.
Here she was the guest of honor.

The ceremony started with a service at the fortress church and then she and the other guests walked to a memorial where she laid down a wreath in honor of the fallen at Gallipoli. Present were also representatives from Australia, New Zealand, Turkey and Denmark.
Quite a number of Danish-Australian families had shown up for the ceremony.

As there is no memorial for Anzac in Denmark the wreath was instead laid at the mamorial for British and Danish soldiers who had fallen during WWII. A large number of Danes joined and fought in British regiments during the war.

Is there any pictures from this event and when did it take place?
Could it have been a private event?

As far as I understand from the article it wasn't a private event, but this particular ball was the first.

It was not on the official calendar, if that's what dazzling meant.

It was a private event, not mentioned in the official calendar. We see it often that F&M's participates in events that isn't written in the official calendar. Either the Danish Royal Court didn't "bother" writing all F&M's events in the official calendar or F&M simply want to participate and show their support as private persons.

I dont think they didn't bother to add it in, I think it's one of those events that Mary decided to attend and not arranged by the court or whoever arranged her agenda.

This afternoon, Mary was responsible for the inauguration of Ringsted's Crisis Center's sensory garden and playground:

Mary inaugurated the sensory garden by planting a so called 'woman oak tree' in occasion of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in Denmark.
Mary said she thinks the garden is a great opportunity for the vulnerable residents in the crisis shelter. - "Here's a place to find peace. That's delight me."
