To answer your question, there have already been several pre-wedding festivities, including a gala dinner hosted by the Australian ambassador, some gifts being exchanged, and a boat race between Frederik and Mary as captains. (Mary won.) The link is below, with lots of articles and pictures.

No Royal Table Scraps

The court has turned down a request from Friends of the Homeless to donate Royal Wedding dinner leftovers to Copenhagen's homeless. Copenhagen's homeless have literally gone begging for scraps from the rich man's table. Capital city advocacy group Friends of the Homeless recently wrote to the Royal Court, requesting that any leftovers from the Royal Wedding dinner be distributed to the capital city's homeless population.

"We saw the last state gala dinner on television, and watched as waiter after waiter was bustling in and out of the room with food…It occurred to me that there must have been leftovers," said Michael Rasmussen, spokesman for Friends of the Homeless, which has previously led efforts to distribute sleeping bags and hot goulash to city transients.

The answer from the court: a curt "no." According to Royal Court press and information director Lis M. Frederiksen, there will be no leftovers from Frederik and Mary's dinner. "The wedding dinner has been organized according to portions. And in the interests of economy, all dishes have been planned to fit the number of guests in attendance," said Frederiksen. Michael Rasmussen told Ritzau news bureau that he was disappointed by the court's answer, but said he didn't believed that there would be no leftovers. "But the dinner is going to be broadcast life on television, so everyone can see if any uneaten food is carried out," said Rasmussen.

You're very welcome Duke!

I think it would be hard not to be in a festive mood if you were in Denmark right now! Lots of exciting events in the run up to the wedding. But an exciting beginning of May in Denmark anyway, with Princess Benedikte's 60th birthday celebrations and all, too.

Police: Wedding Beatings To Troublemakers

Troublemakers risk getting a beating by spectators if they attempt to bother the royal couple on their trip through Inner Copenhagen in a state coach on Friday, the police state to the daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten. "It's a day of happiness, and I think that the crowd will be furious if someone attempts to disturb the event by happenings or disturbance. They risk physically being thrown away by the spectators. Our job will be to reach the extremists before they're detected by the crowd," says chief police inspector Kai Vittrup of Copenhagen police.

He maintains to the daily that the police's level of tolerance toward persons who intent to bother the royals or who attempt to conduct happenings will be quite little. Prior to the wedding, a demonstration of left wing youngsters has been called for and it will take place at the same time as the royal couple leaves the church. At the same time, rumours say that anarchists and unhappy inhabitants of the large alternative community, Christiania, might attempt to disturb the peace on the day of the wedding.

Peaceful protest should be tolerated. Always.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Throw your wishes and cheers at the royal couple as they ride through Copenhagen after Friday's wedding but don't hurl any flowers, police said Tuesday.

"A flower could be mistaken for a bomb and we don't want to cause any unnecessary scares," police spokesman Flemming Steen Munch told The Associated Press.

Police estimate that as many as 250,000 people will jam the Copenhagen city center and as many as 3,000 police officers — one-third of Denmark's police force — are expected to oversee security on Friday when Crown Prince Frederik and Australian Mary Donaldson are to be married.

After the ceremony, the couple will travel through downtown in a horse-drawn carriage.

Officers will line up along the route through the city. Police also called on people not to try to run after the procession.

Cars will be banned from downtown on Friday, the airspace over central Copenhagen will be closed and police will check everyone entering the city center with large bags, Munch said.

In mailed letters and on the Copenhagen police department's Web site, downtown residents have been asked to be vigilant and report anything suspicious. Police declined to say whether they had received any tips.

The list of the 800 royals and dignitaries invited to the wedding will not be released until the last minute by the palace.

However, Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan, Prince Edward — Queen Elizabeth's third son — and his wife Sophie, Australian Governor general Michael Jeffrey and Tasmanian Governor Richard Butler have said they plan to attend the ceremony at Copenhagen Lutheran cathedral and the following party to be held at Fredensborg Palace, 35 kilometers (20 miles) north of Copenhagen.

Donaldson, 32, and Frederik, 35, met during the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

May 12, 2004 - The Australian

Danes Go Wild For All Things Aussie

Tasmanian wine, Tasmanian cheese, Tasmanian pate - if it comes from the Apple Isle the Danish are mad about it. In the lead-up to Friday's royal wedding of Danish Crown Prince Frederik to Tasmania's Mary Donaldson the Danes are having a love affair not just with Mary, who is gracing the covers of newspapers and magazines across the tiny country, but with everything they can find from the Great Southern Land.

Vegemite, Tim Tams and Cherry Ripes are all appearing in Danish supermarkets. And this week Australian accents also can be heard in the capital, Copenhagen, with Mary's relatives and friends in town. The father of the soon-to-be Princess, mathematics professor John Donaldson, along with her stepmother, crime writer Susan Moody, have been spotted around Copenhagen this week -- without bodyguards and acting very much like ordinary tourists. Except that their daughter is one of the most famous women in the country; and right now the most famous Tasmanian in the world.

A clearly delighted Mr Donaldson, who dined with the Queen Margrethe last night, said he still found the prospect of his daughter marrying into the world's oldest royal house "overwhelming". "I've never dreamt of seeing my daughter like she is now, I still can't get used to it," he said when The Australian caught up with him at a cafe outside the royal palace Amalienborg yesterday. "The whole family thinks it's fantastic." Six children from the Donaldson clan, three children each from Mary's two sisters, Patricia Bailey and Jane Stephens, have arrived in Denmark and are rumoured to have been chosen as pageboys and flowergirls for the wedding. Three of Ms Donaldson's Sydney-based friends have also made the trip.

But it's not just the Australians that the Danes have taken into their hearts, homes and castles. Austrade's trade commissioner in Copenhagen, Flemming Larsen, said the interest in Australia was unprecedented, with his office recently helping to place 60 Australian products into a major Danish supermarket chain. "The surge in interest has created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Australian exporters, particularly in areas such as tourism, wine, indigenous art and gourmet foods," Mr Larsen said. "There's huge demand for Tasmanian wine that has been spurred on by the wedding, and young Danes are also looking to Australia for tertiary education," he said.

Guess what? I read a little story about Crown Prince Frederik and Miss Mary Donaldson in a US newspaper. It's so nice to read about other European royals, other than the British.

Nephew Likely Candidate As Bridesman

Much indicates that the son of Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra, Prince Nikolai, will be bridesman at Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson's wedding. As the rehearsal ended around 3 PM after 90 minutes in the church, Nikolai was led from the church by his nanny. And that indicates that he did participate in the rehearsal. Frederik gets along quite well with his young nephew and when the two meet Frederik often takes on the role of playmate.

Frederik is going to be a great father one day. I do hope he has a little girl.

Aussie Revolt Over Wedding Tiaras

Australian women invited to tomorrow's Danish royal wedding were planning to defy orders to wear a tiara to the big event, chef Luke Mangan said today. He said all women had been asked to wear a headdress but Australian guests had decided not to do so. The Sydney chef has been a key part of the pre-wedding celebrations, cooking a state dinner for the entire royal family on Saturday and a buffet for the couple and their friends yesterday. Mangan said he could share the news that Australian women planned to go without a tiara and leave it to the other 800 guests to show off their jewels.

"Mary has got 70 friends and family only coming to the wedding, that's all she was allowed," he told the Nine Network. "And on the wedding invitations to the females, they were to wear a tiara. But I believe the Australian women won't be wearing tiaras on the night." Mangan said the atmosphere in Copenhagen was buzzing in the lead up to tomorrow's wedding and Crown Prince Frederik and Australian Mary Donaldson were surprisingly relaxed despite their long list of engagements. He also put to rest reports about concerns Donaldson was not eating enough and had lost too much weight in the lead up to the wedding, saying she piled her plate high at last night's buffet.

"Meeting Frederick and Mary and the family were great," Mangan said. "He just walked into the kitchen of the palace where we cooked tonight and he just tapped me on the shoulder and said: 'G'day, how's things?'. He said how much he enjoyed the food on Saturday and was looking forward to tonight." The Australian chef cooked kangaroo, at Frederick's request, at the buffet and the prince told him it was a hit. "It was just a fantastic experience and atmosphere in the room," he said. Mangan said Prince Frederick and Donaldson were pumped up and did not seem to be stressed by the wedding. "I said: 'How are you enjoying it?' and he said: 'Look, it's so exciting for us, we're really enjoying everything and we're looking forward to Friday'. "So they're all pumped up." Mangan said the atmosphere in Copenhagen was similar to the buzz in Sydney in the lead up to the Olympics. He said the country had embraced Donaldson and all things Australian.
