Ah! Thanks. It's always a little confusing for me to see wedding rings on the left hand. In most parts of Germany it's "engagement ring left, wedding ring right"

In Marys case I now think, too, that it has to do with her pregnancy. Or there is a completely other reason. Maybe she lost a diamond and the ring is at the jeweler for repair? Or maybe she just wants to play a little prank to all the paparazzi and give them something non-existing (marriage-trouble, for example) to speculate over.

Mary went out shopping in Adelaide today with Amber and some other friends (the gentleman is Hamish Campbell, one of Christian's godfathers)

Silly question: how does one get to Hobart from Copenhagen? Did she fly to say, Frankfurt then Sydney then Hobart? Can one fly directly to Australia from Europe without stopping?

Another silly question: when she travels privately like this, I assume she has security guards with her from Denmark and also from Australia?

No, you cannot fly directly to Australia from Europe (or vice versa) without stopping - it is simply way too long (depending on where you begin and where you end, it can be up to 24 hours+) and planes generally don't carry enough fuel for that amount of flying.

Chances are Mary would have flown to another European city (London, Frankfurt, etc) before getting a flight to Melbourne (or Sydney), then connecting through to Hobart on a seperate flight. That would be three stops before arriving in Hobart, plus a fourth between Europe and Australia (Singapore, KL, Dubai even).

On this trip, Mary only has one of her bodyguards (PET officer?) with her and a 'minder'. No constant security from the AFP, only once I think when they blocked the media from following her car through a roundabout.

Here's Mary arriving at the birthday party. Very simple outfit, no ostentatious jewellery. She can carry off brown really well ...

That ring represents a sacred vow and an expression of trust by the Danish national church - any princess who played a game with her wedding ring would not be well regarded. I'm sure there must be another reason ... but I can't work out what it could be!

In pic 3 there's a little circle on the back of the leg - is it a trick of the light? Maybe it's a mend? Is this outfit silk, I can't tell ... I love the brown, and the adventurous shape is growing on me. If Mary were to visit India or Pakistan, she could wear this trouser shape as a diplomatic gesture (she would need to wear a long-sleeved top over it though! )

Amber Petty is Mary's best friend and was a bridesmaid at Mary's wedding in May 2004. Amber has been to Denmark on many occasions for Fred's 40 th for instance. She is not married.

I was beginning to wonder about the baby bump because of the clothing that Mary wears, but, thanks to this picture, thanks Marika86, it is visible now.

It appears that the Crown Princess has had a lovely, though however brief, visit 'home'.

When they were dining out at lunch yesterday, employee's of the restuarant went to shield the windows with lage A5 sized pieces of paper for which both Amber and the Crown Princess reassured them, in a thankful manner, that it was fine and really wasn't necessary to do so. I quite agree.

To have done so would have incurred moe attention than was warranted.

This morning on departure from Adelaide, as Mary was leaving the allocated gate, people (presumably awaiting their own flight) were lined up and were saying things like "have a safe flight" and "congratulations" to which Mary smiled most thankfully and extended her appreciation for their goodwill. Even waving to a few children through the glass panelling infront of those who had wished her well.

Short but sweet this visit has been for Mary I'm sure. Even a brief period spent in surroundings that were familiar for so long a time can do the mind well.

Her life is Denmark, her home is Australia.

Well said Madame Royale, a visit home, no matter how short, can boost the spirits.

Amber Petty is a celebrity in Australia thanks to her radio presenter job, although with "bad girl" image (tumultous love life etc).

Even though this is a "private" visit, it makes Mary look very "celebrity", to go to the other end of the world pregnant with twins, partying with her "bad best friend". She must be very sure that that this fun trip wont cause any complications for her pregnancy.

Yes, that's very reassuring isn't it?

As you point out we can conclude that Mary's health must be fine and there are no problems in respect to her pregnancy.
