Little known fact: Denmark has one of the largest AFL leagues outside of Australia - and the Denmark national team regularly plays with the teams from the UK and Canada, and Denmark look to be one of biggest chances at the 2nd AFL International Cup.

This marraige is only just the beginning!
You're not serious!!!!!!!! Wow, I would have thought that's unthinkable!!!!! But AFL is a lovely game anyway... very elegant, so that's very good (though I'm a league fan myself&#33.

I can asure you EWS. the danes are quite opsitive about Mary. Offcourse I can't speak for al of us, but the general picture here in Denmark is that Mary is very, very popular indeed. :flower:

The Danish DVD is in PAL only. It is all region but to see it in the USA, you must have a DVD player that converts PAL to NTSC. The DVD is in Danish. I ordered my mine from the GAD bookstore in Copenhagen (where they respond in English).

I'm not sure if these links have been posted, but here are two links, one has pictures of the visit to the Parliament Building and Gala Theatre Performance on May 13th, and the second link has pictures from May 14th, the wedding day. Looking at the pictures, it is still unbelievable at the amount of splendour and grandure this event brought out.

Pictures from May 14th, 2004, the Wedding Ceremony and Balcony Appearances

The Wedding

I just re-watched parts of Frederik and Mary's wedding and it was wonderful as always. Of course the best parts are Frederik's tears right before Mary enters the church, Mary's walk up the aisle on the arm of her father, and many more.

This time around I noticed some little details that I don't remember seeing before. Right when Mary and her father turn to face Frederik, (after curtseying to the Queen), Joachim pats Frederik on the back. Also you can see Infanta Elena craning her neck to see what Mary's wedding dress looks like when Mary comes up the aisle. When the song Eternal Father Strong to Save is being sung you can see Mary wiping her eyes and then lay a hand on Frederik's leg for reassurance.

I wonder if we saw the same images? (Australia used TV2 and DR images)...

Also, when Eternal Father came on, you can see CP Victoria looking intently at the people opposite her (where Mary's relatives were seated). I think it was because Jane and Patricia were crying (like Mary - as we all know, the song was their mother's favourite).

A few moments later, you see Jane's husband passing Jane some tissues, which she uses to wipe her eyes and then... she gives it back to him! (hehe... maybe those bridesmaids dressed didn't have any pockets).

We re-watched some of the wedding a few days ago and we still love everything about it

On the wedding-day, we were standing right outside the church, at the other side of the street, which the Royalties were faced to when they arrived and started walking!!
So we got to see everyone, which was so cool!!! We also took some pictures, but they turned out a bit worse than we thought...it's hard in an all-waving group of people

I just re-watched the wedding coverage from http://www.nrk.no. They used the DR wedding coverage which is the same one I watched at http://www.dr.dk live. The whole gala at the theater, arriving of guests, wedding, reception, etc., is still up at http://www.nrk.no. Prince Felipe's pre-wedding banquet and most of the wedding are still there also.

1.) When you open up the website http://www.nrk.no go to the column on the left side of the page. There are some tan colored blocks. Choose the one that says NETT-TV. It also has a symbol of a TV camera beside it.

2.) A blue box will show up. Wait a little bit and some choices will show up. Scroll down to the 33rd picture and click on Kongehus. For Frederik's wedding choose Kronprinsbryllup i Danmark. For Felipe's wedding choose Kronprinsbryllup i Spania. For the wedding banquet of Felipe choose Kongelig Bankett. The Kronprinsbryllup i Spania is most of the wedding. The ride through the streets, the balcony appearance, the reception, etc. are not included in Felipe's wedding coverage on this site. Frederik's wedding has everything except the cake cutting.

3.) You have to register to view these, but it's free. I've already registered so the registration form isn't showing up on mine. See if there's anyone who can help you through the registration. Why don't you see if Norwegianne who is the moderator for the Norwegian royal board can help you through the registration process.

Thanks for posting that samitude :) We could register easily(we understand Norweigian), but think we'll wait a bit! But it's great that they're still up, Denmark's TV has taken many of their things down a long while ago!

DKgirls, if you can register easily could you let Mashed Potatoes know how to register? I registered fine, but since I have already logged in the registration form won't come up for me anymore to tell others how to register.

IMHO and my Danish friends, we like Mary. Their opinion Mary is a great addition to the Royal Family.

I hope that quote does not come back to haunt her.

It is really no diffrenet then the Crown Prince stating that "American's were lazy" :(

She may be married to the future danish head of state but she also has a past and a sense of self that isnt' totally danish and the danes bleeting upset about it on a messageboard need to learn that she's allowed some room cosnidering she has given up everything else.

So what if she said that, she's not lying its how she feels. SHe cant' totally just say she's danish if she's only livef there a little while and has only just gotten married. royalty or not. Its a huge enough task as it is having to wave and walk behind her husband and do all those boring things like hug or shake hands with annoying people.
That would be like any of you marrying a foriegner. You will always consider yourself what you have always been. However you will also consider yourselves part of your new country as well!
