I guess we can place this here: Marys tasmanske djævle er døde - TV 2 Nyhederne

In 2006, in connection with the birth of Christian, Mary got as a present four Tamanian Devils, - you know the aggressive marsupials. Google hasn't got a translation for pungdjævle, and I can't remember what they are called in English.
Aaaanyway, these four critters were billeted in Copenhagen Zoo. Now, alas, they have all passed away. Having died from old age.
But as this is written four new Devils have been flown in from Tasmania to start a new life in Copenhagen Zoo, where they will hopefully also die of old age after a long and happy life growling at anything else.

Billed Bladet now also has the story about the Tasmanian devils, this time with a picture: Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsesse Marys tasmanske djævle er døde

That reminded me of a sketch with the actor Ulf Pilgaard, who for many years has impersonated QMII, his impersonations are very good, sometimes uncanny! http://multimedia.ekstrabladet.dk/ar...___667349m.jpg He/she is here posing with the twins, doing some prince-sitting again.

In the sketch, he, that is QMII, told the audience that Frederik had told her that he and Mary had just come back after seeing the Tasmanian devils and she admonished him: "Frederik, you don't talk about your parents-in-law like that"!

Sad to hear about the ... "devils", but I am glad that they are getting some new. Everytime I've been to Copenhagen Zoo I've been trying to get to see them, when I finally managed to (you'd be surprised as to how many times I've failed to see them) I kinda expected to see something like this (I blame Disney) and was slightly disappointed to find that they look nothing like that.

Ulf Pilgaard's impressions of QMII always have me on the floor laughing, he is hilarious and that sketch is also just absolutely wonderful

My pleasure, ladies

This is really a piece of general trivia about the whole DRF but I'll place it here and then we'll see where it may end up.

Translation of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #42, 2012.
Where a Jens Schultz asks: What do the royals do if they want to see a current movie in the cinema?

Jon Bloch Skipper replies:
The members of the DRF are usually invited to the gala premiere when a new Danish movie is out.
It happens that they accept the invitation, as for example the CP-couple did when Ole Christian Madsen's "The Flame and the Lemon" Flame and Citron (2008) - IMDb had prmiere in Imperial (a cinema) in the spring of 2008.
If the royals feel like seeing a movie on a weekday or during the weekend, they simply go to the cinema like the rest of us. They are of course noticed, but they are usually left alone, which they no doubt prefer in such a situation.
As mentioned before it's important that the Danes in general and the press in particular allow the DRF to have a private life - also when it from time to time takes place in public.

You got it right, Muhler. Tasmanian Devil is the common name. And their scientific name being Sarcophilus harrisii (I think we'll stick with 'TD' ).

Thanks Madame Royale

Tasmanian Devils it is then. They have incidentally recieved a surprisingly amount of coverage in the press, including info on the ongoing cancer epidemic among the animals.
It appears the more placid have a greater chance of not getting the decease than the more grumpy ones, so they may eventually end up dropping Devil in their name.

Yes, the cancerous tumors have devestated numbers in the wild; and what's really concerning is that this strain of cancer is infectious amongst the devil population which is why so many fall victim.

A little insight...

When white settlers arrived/invaded (whichever), they thought the squeeling growl of the marsupial was that of a devil or banshee (they were a superstitious lot). These little bone crunching 'terrors' scared the daylights out of people because they are primarily nocturnal so no one knew what one looked like which only heightened the fears of those who heard it's calling card.

Tasmania's wilderness/forestry is dense and there are many hidden gullies and canyon's which echo far and wide meaning that the devil could be heard from miles away. And in the dead of night, surrounded by complete darkness with only a camp fire and barrels of gin to pacify their fears, it's little wonder they were scared stiff!

Danish bt.dk reports of a little accident Crown Princess Mary had in Copenhagen yesterday afternoon, she drove by car and touched a cyclist. Fortunately nothing serious happened, an eyewitness told bt.dk "They were both shocked, and I think the lady on the bike got an extra shock when she discovered who she was facing".

Kronprinsesse Mary i højresvingsulykke: Kørte ind i cyklist - Royale | www.bt.dk

Mary accidentally hit a cyclist with her car today, while driving in Copenhagen city.
Mary was turning right and apparantly failed to notice a cyclist who got hit and fell.

A man who wittnessed the incident said: "She turns right and the cyclist is riding sort of in her own world and then they crashed. They were both shocked and I think the lady on the bike got an extra shock when she discovered who she faced".

PET who as always ascorted Mary in another car will not comment: "We never issue statements in cases where we are bodyguards for specific persons".

- Well, it seems like nothing happened apart from a scare.
Mind you, cyclist are more often than not reincarnated Kamikaze pilots on two wheels. Completely oblivious to any traffic rules and the world around them.

ADDED: Billed BLadet has more on the story: http://www.billedbladet.dk/Kongelige...sin%20bil.aspx

Lene Balleby from the court says: "The Crown Princess didnt notice the cyclist at all, there was a dead angle on the car".

She adds: "The Crown Princess has afterwards been in contact with the cyclist to ensure that she is well".

Bit of a sweeping statement regarding cyclists and in this case you have no idea who was at fault, if indeed there is anyone at fault.
Mary could have been driving like a 'Kamikaze' pilot for all you or I know.
