My pleasure!

I am getting confused about what Mary wore where when tho! My questions, to anyone who can answer them, are:
- When did Mary wear the blue top?
- What event did she wear the white lace dress to?
And when did these events happen?

Edit: I can answer one question myself, the dress was at the handball I think it was, Denmark vs. Korea

I'm not sure what this article is about but I am guessing Mary has already gone home to Denmark on Tuesday and Frederik is still in Beijing and was stuck in the hotel ...

Can anyone translate?

Kronprins Frederik spærret inde på sit hotel - MSN Starlounge

thank you in advance

The headline says something about Frederik being locked up at his hotel. Why I don't know as I can't get acces to the article.

It's about Chinese security being so protective of Frederik's safety that he must give 24 hours notice if he intends to do anything different from what is on his programme. There is no space for spontaneous activities.

The source is the magazine Her & Nu.

Not the most reliable source in the world. But this might be true.

The Chinese authorities regard the American, Israeli and Danish teams to be most at risk when it comes to terroractivities. So I guess the same goes for the official reprecentatives from those countryes.

I'm not entirely sure that it has anything to do with the terrorist activities, but more to do with the Chinese governments need to control every single aspect. Not to get totally off topic, but I don't think that China should have been awarded the games in the first place. It's been a comedy of errors from the get go.

First the pollution, then the Chinese government felt affronted when the American athletes wore breathing masks (when the great majority of their own citizens do the same), then they clean out the city and refuse travel permits to anyone they think might protest anything, then they block access to websites (amnesty international, etc) because they say that those websites are a threat to the National Security, and last but by no means least, they insert one little girl to lip sync a song, because the little girl singing the song was not "cute" enough, and that was supposedly in the nations best interest? And don't even get me started on teh female gymnasts from China. I was a gymnast, and competed on the elite level, similar to the current olympians, although I never went to the olympics, and if those girls are all 16, I am a purple elephant. True. The Chinese gymnasts are small, but generally they even have some curves, and they always have all of their adult teeth, something which one of these girls seems to be missing.

No, I can't believe that it has much at all to do with his security and far more to do with their need to control every aspect of who he might meet, etc.

I understand why the Isreali and American teams might be more at risk...but why the Danes? Just wondering...

Perhaps something to do with the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed?

According to the danish media, the chinese authoratives gives this as the reason. If it wasn't reality I would think it was a joke - not the chinese judgement - but the fact that such a little cartoon can make such a big furore.

Anyway so far the danish team hasn't made any major achivements so we might as well pride ourselves of being incredible good at making cartoons

Could not agree with you more. I was looking at those little girls and when they said one of them was 16 I thought they were pulling my leg.
What are they afraid of? P Frederick is going to sneak out and meet the opposition???

(Answering Odettes post) No they are not - and I am feeling pritty much like Prince Hamlet. I do hope the Greek team as well as the Danish team soon are going to show their worth. My hopes are on Princess Natalie

I don't know if Mary is back in Denmark. Somehow I think she is going directly to Australia and then the children will follow. It is not a fact but the way I would have done the logistics.

They won't follow in a suitcase but along with their beloved nannies

I have loved seeing photos of Frederik and Mary at the games. They look like they are having a romantic getaway.

Yes. I think they are enjoying just being the two of them without any kids around, reliving Sidney and just being part of something that has an enormous interest for both of them - sports

Great videos, Mitchell! In the photo of the magazine cover that is next to the video screen, it says something about Mary and Frederik and the word "romantik". Does anyone know what the article is about (I don't know any Danish, sorry)?

Hiya Lilla,

If CPss Mary had left for Australia directly from Beijing, then why was it reported in this report originally from Her of Nu that she was flying back to Danmark? Is it usually reported on local danish television news programmes when the DRF return from trips abroad or are photographers staking out the airport to get photos of the DRF returning from abroad?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,
Emeralds and Opals

There was some debate awhile back as to whether Mary had to return to Denmark to pick up the children before they went to Australia. I think it was concluded that the children did in fact stay in Denmark, but I'm not sure to be honest...
