Thanks Muhler, Obviously BT did not have to go to the trouble of sensationalizing the story to sell the magazine as the it would have sold well without the ridiculous hype. Just goes to show the editor of BT had a panic attack and decided to write rubbish to increase sales. It always annoys me that publications think there readers are morons when we aren't. cheers

And as sure as night follows day...the danish media has picked up on the "story" that Mary wasn't wearing her engagement and wedding rings! At least they put it down to "swollen fingers due to pregnancy" on the msndk.starlounge website.
Google Translate

By tomorrow...all the other media will be running the "story" of Mary's missing rings! I wonder if any of the media will ask the Danish court to comment on the "mystery" of Mary's missing rings!

I doubt whether Mary actually drank a glass of wine - she probably sipped at a glass out of respect for her host's sponsor. Amber has a commercial relationship with a South Australian wine company, and it's perfectly in order for Amber to receive a crate of wine from that company to wish her well. Remember, when Mary married Fred, the likelihood of a great positive for trade was put about as a rationale for VIPs from Australia attending the wedding. It's actually greatly to Amber's credit that she chose not to capitalise on Mary's careful intake of fabulous South Australia wine! (I am a Coonawarra fan myself). PR is Amber's tool of trade, so additional credit for not using her friend's profile for profit.

Does anybody know whether Mary returned to Denmark or traveled straight on to Greece from Australia?

I don't know but I would think she would stop back in Denmark to see the hubby and kids. Plus, she must be getting a final fitting on her gown. Given her changing shape, I would think she'd need that.

I would say she would return to Denmark, and travel with the other Danish Royals. Also to get the children perhaps.

Okay, BT has done it again. Mary udsat for plat tæppejoke - Royale - BT.dk

Distorted facts and sensationalized trivialities in order to get hits.
The option of the readers writing comments have been omitted this time

Under the headline: Mary udsat for plat tæppejoke = Mary exposed to vulgar carpet-joke, the article tells about one of those who gave a speech at the birthday of Amber Petty, Matt Gilbertson. He referred jokingly to royalty among them, pointing to AP's father who owned a carpet business called Carpet Kingdom.
- Whether it was funny is debatable but I fail to see how that in any way could be considered vulgar.

But the article goes on to explain to the now hopefully indignant readers that Mary was forced to wear and I quote: "a model-competion-ribbon" with the text: Lifemaid.
- Presumably the author has no sense of humour at all and/or he believe the readers are completely brain-dead. How he managed to complete the school for journalism is beyond me, but perhaps he didn't and he is just an intern.

Anyway, stories in the tabloid BT must now be considered less than credible!

Stories written by these authors in particular must be read with extreme caution:
James Kristoffer Miles
Sisse Sejr-Nørgaard

BT's now retired royal reporter, Bodil Cath, was extremely reliable. She knew what she was talking about and she had developed a rapport with the DRF over the years, resulting in many exclusives.
The writers mentioned above can in no way be compared to her.

Frederik is in Singapore now for the Youth Olympics. According to my reporter friend, he made a low key visit to the Olympic village to meet with Danish athletes.

Speaking of fingers....Mary is wearing her wedding rings at the pre-wedding reception for the Greek couple. Much ado about nothing.

Cool

Good Grief! I hadn't logged in for a day and there's still talk about Mary's rings or no rings!

If Mary read some of the things people write about her or her activities, I think she would be gob smacked!! Nice people care enough to comment I suppose!
