She, a Dane, having her Danish bodyguards throwing Australian citizens out of a public Australian park in Australia?????

You simply can't mean that!!

The only good thing about that senario would be....????.......well it could have made some pretty interesting Headlines

I am very glad she did not choose that course of action!!

It would have been a catastrophe - resulting in among other things - Mary being sendt right back to Prinsess-school to pick up the lessons she so obviously had not grasped.

I don't understand your point. The body guards are not allowed to do their work outside Denmark. Is that what you are syaing?? If Mary wanted some privacy she could have ask also polite to the other part of the press, why she didn't ask that to them?????? If she want som eprivacy from BB she would also want some privacy from othe press

I cannot understand what the problem is, BB have explained the situation and do not have a problem, so why is it such a issue, because people just believe what they want to. We know the report in the Australian paper wa not correct, however some still want to believe it why?

They are there to protect her in case unauthorized persons intrude on her or even attack her. They are definatly not there to violate the rights of citizens in Australia to be inside a public Australien park.

Ordering Aussies out of the park would definitely given the republican movement in Aus plenty to say and more momentum. From the reading all I can see is that the journalist polite enough to ask was politely told no and the rest just did what they do. Non story.............

I read in The Mercury, Australian Newspaper, that Jetstar, the airline that Mary travelled on to Tasmania, is looking to name a plane after Princess Mary.

Whether or not they can do it I'm not entirely certain (probably can), but there is, I'm sure, one or two race hourses named after the Crown Princess which she herself knows about. Roses, Horses and Planes...Oh my! hehe

She's definitly regarded here with much affection. There's no doubt about that...

Well, that is probably because the members of the British RF ( the Queen is also Queen of Australia ) do not show up very often....

I'm perfectly aware who my Queen is thank you, dear Santacruz...

And I think your reasoning, respectively, has little to do with it as Australia has no royal family and The Queen was never born Australian. Mary was...

Here are two articles which both talk about the "Princess Mary" carrier.

Airline to name plane Princess Mary | The Australian
Jetstar up in air over Mary | Mercury - The Voice of Tasmania

That is true but : there are more Australians who care about what the British Royals do than those who watch the DRF....right?

I cant say that there are likely that many people (barring some 65+ women) who really care overly much about either family if Australia is as it was when I left nearly ten years ago now (and now I'm back in NZ so similar situation). Mary & Frederik must be the obvious exception for the Danish RF, but I doubt Joe Bloggs would know who, for example, Princess Marie and her stepsons are. The only exception (looking again now at the entirety of each RF) to that is probably major times for example weddings, child births/christening, visits to Australia or another major country. But then, thats just MO.

Well, which makes pretty clear how the importance of this visit is to the majority of Australians...

I have enjoyed the DRF's visit. I think they have had just the right amount of exposure in the press, and obviously plenty of private time with family. Mary may be Danish now but she is still a great ambassador for Australia. Are they still in Australia? I hven't seen any news or pictures since the photos at Govement House

Certainly, more would pay attention to what the BRF do over the DRF. But when breaking it down, I would say Mary is given more thought/attention than the Queen, on average.

Well, like I say, I'm not in Australia right now which is where we're discussing, but I'd agree. Very nicely said, Madame Royale.

The Queen's tour of the 1950s was big news, these days it would receive media coverage, but the same hype that there was (as I understand it - its a bit before my time*) then would be highly unlikely to exist for HM The Queen IMO.

*I have read media coverage and talked with people who do remember the time though. Also, most recently I read the book "Fire" by Deborah Challinor which integrates the Queen's visit into the story very nicely. (Its a great book IMO, and I am a fan of the author in general).

I have very much respect for the Queen and her work of the last 50 years. But I agree that there might be more enthusiasm if young royals, who are a symbol for the future of a monarchy , are visiting a country. In that aspect I am not too surprised that people were interested in Marys visit. But on the other hand: if William or Harry would use a private holiday in Oz to buy nappies or do photoshoots with their girlfriends in front of the Sydney Opera House, they would most definetely cause mass histeria....

Mary is probably given more attention just because she visits Australia more. When was the last time Queen Elizabeth visited Australia? Plus, being that Mary was an Australian commoner, and she is so approachable!!

I know this thread is not about Queen Elizabeth but I would like to mention her age, the distance between the UK and Australia and the amount of other countries that are in the commonwealth. Also you might want to look at the amount of duties the Queen has performed in the last year and those of other Royal Families....
