Oh doesn't Mary look beautiful?

Thank you so much to everyone who has posted pictures.


I know this is a silly thing to say... but seeing her looking around herself in the pictures I wonder if inside she is thinking "wow! what am I doing here?" or perhaps she is used it all by now.

Such beautiful pictures, thank you very much.

I don't know about Fred--he still looks like a twit (maybe he's not).

Frederik looks incredibly handsome - one can't deny that he's the best looking Crown Prince.

I was refering to Crown Princes of ruling houses, not Crown Princes of non-ruling houses.

Oh my God, I clicked the movie links (although I don't understant ANY Danish&#33 and I hear the song "Lovers Lullaby" and it was so romantic! If anyone has any information on the singer and/or the song, I'd much appreciate it!

Anyway, Mary looks very comfortable with a tiara on and she does look like a natural. I hope there'll be more tiara appearances soon!

HRH The Crown Price’s Reply at the Reception at Copenhagen City Hall

Quote:
Dear Lord Mayor,


On behalf of my fiancée, Miss Mary Donaldson, I should like to express our sincere gratitude for the City of Copenhagen’s beautiful wedding present, and for this reception at the Copenhagen City Hall.

Today is my fiancée’s first visit to Copenhagen City Hall. I am fairly certain that my own first visit here must have been on the occasion of my Christening in June 1968, when I was driven in an open car through the city of Copenhagen, which was decked out in flags.


It would be wrong of me to say that I remember that day. Judging from press photos from the occasion, I wasn't in a very good mood for part of that journey!


I do, however, remember a number of occasions when I have visited the City Hall in connection with official events, or when we have had an event to celebrate in my family.


From my earliest childhood, I have sat quietly on the golden chairs and observed and absorbed the many details in this beautiful Banqueting Hall, while the grown-ups listened to the numerous speeches that always accompany these events.


The coats of arms below the ceiling, remind one of the banqueting hall of King Arthur’s Court; the red swallow-tailed flags; all the gold, and the huge chandeliers.


And then there were the enormous walrus sculls with their tusks. They were enough to give a little boy much food for thought.

Above them, one could see the Falcon of Iceland, the Polar Bear from Greenland and the Sheep of the Faroe Islands.


I am quite sure that the strong impressions we receive as children remain with us. I have always been happy to come here - and I can say that the Copenhagen City Hall is very much part of my childhood and youth.


In a few days we shall celebrate our wedding, and I suppose I ought to confess already that I have violated Christian III’s regulation not to invite more than 24 couples and 12 good friends to the wedding. Also, both beer and wine will be served. I think the fine for those guilty of breaking the rule then was in the order of 40 marks to the City, and 40 marks to the Monarch. Still, I suppose it is negotiable?


Once again, thank you very much for today’s reception at the City Hall. Thank you for many years of warm and genuine hospitality here in the Home of the City.


And, naturally, my fiancée and I wish to thank you most warmly for this very beautiful gift which we shall use and enjoy.

Thank you.

You think Crown Prince Willem-Alexander is cute? You must be joking right? Have you noticed his teeth?

Fred does have better teeth, but WA is better looking.

Mary is so classy and beautiful. I love her new hat. It&#39;s much better than the one she wore at the military tribute.

I have to second that...

He is WAY too big. It can&#39;t be good for his health to carry that overweight. And I don&#39;t find it attractive.

Wow, Mary got tons of new dresses and suits in the last weeks. And I´ve to say (and I thought it before, that this would happen) she looks more and more like a crown princess Mary Elizabeth and less like a Mary Donaldson.
