And a nice BB video from today, Day 1 in Qatar:

VIDEO: Driblekongen kronprins Frederik viste lækkerier på fodboldbanen i Qatar | BILLED-BLADET

Where F&M visited the stadium and where we see Frederik is an accomplished soccer player, but that it's probably good Mary hasn't gone down the football career way

The Danish football national team was excited about Frederik and Mary, and said the same words we hear from all who meet the Crown Prince Couple: "These two are so relaxed, and down to earth, and they are fresh on trying everything. Super cool."


That's a great large gallery from today on the first day in Qatar. Thanks

https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...47&oe=576141B6

It's interesting to see how more relaxed the visit seems to has been now they have traveled on to Doha. It's different from from the days in Saudi Arabia. Just look at the pictures from the official dinner tonight. Frederik and Mary - with the arms around each other while sending loving glances - as we know them. That was not happened in Saudi Arabia where they hardly dared touching each other - and when you are guests in a country you of course respect their culture.

This morning, the last day, Day 5:

And the first thing Mary was ready with was a genuine warm-hearted greetings to Sweden's Victoria and Daniel

BILLED-BLADET Play – Danmarks Royale TV | Kronprinsesse Mary ønsker kronprinsesse Victoria og prins Daniel tillykke

- "It is absolutely wonderful. I am SO happy. We are SO happy. And we have sent our greatest congratulations and we share their joy. We have followed much with in Victoria's pregnancy, so it's so lovely to hear a little boy has arrived well and safely into our world."


***

And we already have a HUGE gallery (142 pictures) from today, Day 5:

The Crown Princess pays a visit at the Qatar Foundation and the Qatar Academy:
You can see Mary is in her right element among children. She beams

Gallery:

Kongehuset gallery from the last two days in Doha:

And a great video from BB of F&M's last event during this visit of the Crown Prince Couple participating in a meeting with the Emir of Qatar, H.H. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

This noon were Frederik's and Mary's last day during this official visit. I guess F&M arrives home in Denmark during this evening.

I couldn't agree more. They are excellent representatives and make a great working team.
The pictures of Mary today at the kindergarten are beautiful!

Thank you to all for the videos, photos and translations! Is it just me or did they look more relaxed once they left Saudi Arabia and traveled on to Qatar?

Oh definitely
Some playfulness between them did sneak out in Saudi Arabia
http://ekstrabladet.dk/incoming/mdxi...audi%20Arabien
But they were more conservative due to the ultra strict "rules"
But I was more then glad to see Mary by his side, and even front and center
http://was.sa/galupload/normal/000-4...6745436902.jpg

And once in Qatar, they were able to be a little more themselves. with the simple natural act of putting their arms around each other

"During the meeting, they discussed bilateral relations and ways of enhancing them and exchanged talks and opinions about a number of topics of common interest, especially in the investment and economy sector. "

There is an observation by the BB reporter accompanying them to Saudi Arabia I'd like to share with you:

" - More times, than were really necessary, Crown Prince Frederik presented his wife (formal word) to anyone and anybody who got close to the CP-couple. And each time he introduced Mary, it was with a proud look in his eyes". - In other words they were forced to acknowledge and greet Mary.
Thanks Muhler. I also liked that detail a lot. It does not surprise me, though.

This video from today from BB shows it clearly.
F&M visits the Emir of Qatar.. Notice how Frederik obviously proud presents Mary around 1:22 into the video. That's a proud husband who is side by side with his wife. And not afraid to show it.

Notice around 01:22
http://play.billedbladet.dk/article/...iren-af-Qatar/

**

Mary also says at the end of the video that it has been a 'very educational trip that has made strong impression...' I think we all know what she means.

I think the Danish government and the Danish business owes The Crown Prince Couple a big excuse for having dragged the couple along on this humiliating visit.

But F & M has done their duty. And they have done it - as we know them - with a positive and respectful attitude, and as a strong and proud couple/team.

**

This was F&M's last event... And I guess they arrives home in Denmark soon.
Frederik is Denmark's regent tomorrow.

Thanks Roskilde. I did not expect anything less from them. No wonder the ministers insisted they go, they do so well in all of these economic trips to various countries. Great representatives.

And yes Frederik is beyond proud of his wife
two more pictures of the meeting with the Emir

In the BB videos, when Mary speaks English, she clearly has her Australian accent again. I love that Must be a remainder of the past holidays back home... When she's a bit more "on guard" she tries to hide the accent a bit and replace it by a British one, but I think she should just be proud of her roots

Mary makes controversial statement during Saudi Visit, calling a law in Saudi Arabia against violence against women a 'great success' despite the law never having been implemented in the country
Mary med kontroversiel udmelding: Roser kongens 'store succes' - som aldrig er blevet indført - Royale | www.bt.dk

Ekstrabladet critizises Mary for remaining silent on women's rights in Saudia Arabia.
While in the US, on safe ground, she said 'I want a world where women have equal opportunities and freedom to shape their own destiny and ambition', but remains silent where it should have mattered.

While I understands that both events cannot be compared (official visit vs. UN event), I find it surprising that the Danish media calls her out on this issue.

likely they would have called her out for being too political if she had said something. She's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't.

This is a business trip and there is no place for her IMO to speak out nor was there an appropriate event to do so.
