Unions want Crown Princess Mary's help | Adelaide Now

BLUE collar trade unions want Denmark's Crown Princess Mary to intervene on behalf of Australian oil riggers in a long-running industrial dispute. Danish container shipping giant Maersk is refusing to accept the right of its 50 Australian staff to collectively organise through a union, unions say.

It would be very hard for me to leave my children while on vacation or business trip. They would have to come with me. The only way I'd leave them is if a family member is looking after them. Maybe that is what they did.

They've left the kids with Mary's father in the past. Perhaps he watched them this time as well.

It's good for a married couple to have some "alone" time now and again. It is hard to leave your children, but it's good to get away too

Well, I guess if you are paying that much a 'free' hat is the least they could do

This article is almost three months old, and the matter has been resolved. They never needed the Crown Princess' "help", but Instead, people power worked: The Australian Workers Union: Two-year campaign gets enterprise agreement with Maersk

Cool

Princess Mary could never have helped the workers anyway because she couldn't become involved as a Royal.

Agreed. Rarely do royals get involved in any issues that is political.

I'm sorry but just because she was brought up there, there is nothing she could have done. She has little power in Denmark let alone in Australia.

Absolutely correct.

This is an issue on government and/or ambassador level should there be any official involvement from DK.

If Mary were to say or do something on behalf of the Australian union, the Danish Prime Minister would request Queen Margrethe to tell the Crown Princess to mind her own business.

In theory there could even be a question from the Australian government as to why the Danish Crown Princess is interfering in a Australian domestic issue.

I know Tasmania is part of Australia but it is not part of the mainland, what she was being asked to deal with was a mainland union problem am I correct? Thats even more far-fetched.

That really has little to do with it though, I have to say. Mary is from Tasmania and Tasmania is a part of Australia. Mainland or no mainland, she was an Australian.

I entirely agree with Muhler, though. My sentiments exactly.

Sounds like a media beat-up to me. The Unions would or should know better than to ask a royal to help with something controversial. And don't forget Baron Maersk McKinney Moller is a good friend of HRH. He gave them his private jet to travel to their honeymoon destination. He transported the Melbourne tram to Denmark for free. He has helped the Crown Prince couple in many things. So Mary would never get involved in any dispute concerning Maersk.
And yes Muhler is spot on with his comment.

I wonder how the island dwellers of Denmark would react to such a statement, seeing as their capital, Copenhagen is actually not part of the 'mainland' either, as you say!

The unions never actually asked for her help...it was just a means to get media attention about a serious issue.

They're used to it...we have so many jokes regarding the Devils

And I am sure Crown Princess Mary would know them all...

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #22, 2010.
Isabella og Christian til globryllup (*) - Isabella and Christian to gawking-wedding.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

Last weekend a well-known badminton player in DK, Tine Rasmussen, was married at Fredensborg palace church.
Nothing unusual about that, except that the couple was driven in a horsedrawn carriage with two black horses. - All within wiewing distance of Kancellihuset, (150 meters to be exact) where Mary, Bella and Christian had just just returned from a bicycle ride. Dadday Frederik was presumed sleeping after having sailed around the Island of Funen in a race, - and won.
Now, horses, carriage, dresses and what not, that can make any little girl stop in her tracks, even a genuine Princess like Isabella: "Look mum, look", she was heard shouting.
Okay, we'll look for a while. Bella was fascinated, Christian was interested too, but had to burn off some more energy by jumping up and down a bit. - And Mary? Well, like any mother I guess she was just patient.

After a while she called for the children to come inside. No way! This horse-stuff was much more interesting. Eventually the children did go inside with Mary.

(*) Globryllup. = People looking at or even attending a wedding out of curiosity. A common expression in Danish. And by definition a considerable percentage of the members of this forum will go to "globryllup", when Victoria and Daniel gets married later this month. - As such the word is neutral.



You may have noticed that Frederik turned 42 recently and Billed Bladet did indeed plant a reporter outside Kancellihuset to observe what went on during the day.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #22, 2010.
Børnene vækkede mig med gaver - The children woke me up with presents.
Written by the Ulrik Ulriksen.

Our reporter caught up with Frederik when he left Hotel Marriott after the opening of the International Lawyers Conference and asked: How were you celebrated this morning?
F: "As you are when you have good/nice children". And explained how Christian and Bella had tiptoed in early in the morning and said congratulations. With them they brought presents which daddy of course had to open at once.
"It was really cosy and I got some nice presents. A bit of clothes and stuff like that, but also some drawings the children had made themselves".

But there were also adult well wishers. At 19.30 sharp fourteen close friends of the CP-couple arrived. Caroline Heering and her husband. Christian Buchwald and wife. Jeppe Handwerk and wife. Julie Mølsgaard and Christoffer Carstienskiold and Ellen Hillingsø. To mention some of them.
After a welcoming drink in the garden, (our reporter must have patrolled around the house), it was time for a dinner.

QMII dropped by Kancellihuset during the day to say congratulations. In the evening she went to the opera. There is no mentioning of Prince Henrik, so I guess he isn't at home.
