I think what was said by the author of the book is correct: showing up and looking good is not enough for this job. This is what Mary does and she does it good. But she is not a model or a upper eastside charity lady. She is the future queen of a country. To me both her and Fred do not have the profile to be head of state. They are a nice , goodlooking couple but I doubt that they are made do represent a whole country.

Enough of the discussion about the book, 1015 Copenhagen! If you wish to talk about head on over to the Royal Library sub-forum when the topic is re-opened later today!

This topic is reserved for General News about Frederik, Mary, and Family! In case you forgot the warning on page one by Empress:

The story seems to be untrue. Denmark has to come first of course - that's the reason why they went to Beijing - but apart from that I think it's natural that CP Mary cheers for athletes from her country of birth.
It seems there was a breach of protocol, however.

Quote:
Australia has apologised to Denmark for allowing Crown Princess Mary to be filmed while visiting Olympians from her native country in the athletes' village.
Aussies sorry for filming Princess Mary


I hardly think Australia apologised to Denmark, rather, apologised for the miscommmunication. The Australian contingent can hardly be blamed for it. It was the seven network (the olympic network here in Australia) who happpened to be filming for a 'feel good' early morning chat show which focuses on the games, who willingly spoke with Mary and Frederik. And who, both of them, cordially obliged.

Still, these things happen I guess. A hazard of having two countries claim the one Princess.lol.

According til the danish newspaper BT, the story is one the australian newspaper Herald Sun has invented.

OL-kritik af Mary: Anklages for forræderi (Olympic criticism: Mary is accused of treason)

BT quotes the Head of communication, at the Danish Sports Union, for calling the story one big lie.

I would have thought, with all the stuff going on at the olympic it wouldn't be nessesary for the media to make up storyes. But I guss they simply can't help themselves.

Right, did no one read GlitteringTiaras warning above? If not let me reiterate! ENOUGH! This is a thread for General News regarding Frederik and Mary, not a thread where you can engage in personal attacks or snarky comments.

Furthermore, any discussion regarding a certain book should remain closed until the appropriate thread is reopened.

I've cleaned up this thread, and I hope that I do not have to close it. Please refrain from any more off topic comments.

Coverage in the Danish media has plenty of evidence (quotes from oranisers and athletes) that Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary visited the Danish Athletes at the Olympic Village first, and had lunch with the handball players. The Danish officials had asked the Australian contingent if they would also like a visit from the couple, and took Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary over to the Australian athletes at the end of their visit.

The only problem came when an impertinent Australian reporter assumed she could just shove a microphone and camera at them when they arrived, and start an impromptu interview. Television Stations are not supposed to film in the Olympic Village, and Mary and Fredrik had also stipulated that the visit with athletes should be private, and not a media event.

The original article has been rewritten to include these facts.

The LOUSY trouble making press seems to be the same the whole world over. Half truths and lies seem to be their bible.

In the Internet, today, Billad-Bladat has a most loving picture of Mary and Frederik and, if my elementary use of a Danish-English dictionary hasn't led me astray, I think it says they are expected to stay together for ever. Amen to thaT!

You know what! In this case , I entirely agree with you. The press has made a huge something out of absolutely nothing. CP Mary has been loyally supporting all the Danish athletes in action and she has even on most occasions worn the Danish colours - red and white - to show her support for her new country!

This is another poll of Billed-Bladet:
Will Frederik and Mary stay together till eternity?
The article mentions Charles&Diana, Joachim&Alexandra and states that divorces are very common in the western world nowadays,
even in the "best" society.
BB asks its readers whether they think F&M's love will last or break?
When I looked at the results it was: 90% love will last, 10% divorce.

You hear this in the US all the time. Hilary Clinton was criticized for not wearing a US flag pin. Somehow she was unpatriotic and didn't support the troops. How stupid. To say Mary is the same for not wearing the colors of Denmark at the Olympics is dumb too. Why does the media have to be so negative all the time? Don't we have enough to feel bad about?

I agree. The Australian Women's Weekly this month features an article where it quotes Frederik in 2005 stating emphatically that he would stay with Mary forever. It has pix from Fred's birthday biography this year, and it's a great read.

"In action" yes, but not privately apparently. Mary certainly partied with the Australian athletes and not with the Danes.

Apparently people are still jumping to false conclusions without knowing the facts.

Welll, yes but PR is all about "apparently"! The DRF have a PR machine, and they use it. If the DRF wish to counter the claims made by News Ltd, they would make use of any available pictures of Mary socialising with Danish athletes. As there are none in evidence, and many pictures of Mary socialising with the Australian team, it's valid to draw the conclusion that no pics of Mary with the Danish team were available later than the initial flag-raising ceremony - so they weren't really able to counter the News Ltd story.

Mary attended a 20th birthday celebration for an Australian athlete. She also attended support events for the Danish Olympians - there is a link posted somewhere that emphatically states that she did.
