Family Heads to Denmark for Royal Celebration

The family of Tasmanian princess-to-be Mary Donaldson left Hobart yesterday, bound for royal wedding celebrations in Denmark. Ms Donaldson is to marry Crown Prince Frederik in a lavish ceremony in Copenhagen on May 14. Her sister Patricia Bailey, husband Scott and their children Michael, Maddison and Mollie were excited about their trip to Denmark. Mrs Bailey told reporters at the airport she had not spoken to Mary for a while.

"She is quite busy getting herself organised. I'm sure she's a bit stressed and excited," Mrs Bailey said. While the wedding will be run strictly according to royal protocol, the Tasmanian relations intend combining the formal celebrations with a family holiday. Mr Bailey said he was hoping they would have a "great time" and see as much of Denmark as they could. Mrs Bailey said there were functions planned and she had to pack a few dresses. Mary's immediate family is part of an expanding contingent of Tasmanians travelling to Copenhagen for wedding celebrations.

Several of Mary's cousins are believed to have left for Copenhagen at the weekend. A female cousin told friends she had received an edict from the palace that she bring three formal gowns with her. It was decreed at least two of these gowns should fall from waist to floor. The Danish palace had instructed that female guests were to wear attire that covered their shoulders to watch the royal couple exchange vows in a Copenhagen cathedral, Mary's cousin said. This edict suggests Mary's wedding gown will be modestly cut, and have sleeves of some kind.

Incat boss Bob Clifford also left Tasmania at the weekend, bound for a pre-wedding celebration in Copenhagen to be hosted by Governor-General Michael Jeffery. Mr Clifford, who has long had business links with Denmark, said the upcoming royal nuptials certainly had not hurt his chances of improving business relationships there. It is believed an executive representing a Tasmanian-based wind farm components manufacturer is also on his way to Copenhagen for the Governor-General's function. Meanwhile, an upmarket English china company has produced a plate and cup to commemorate Denmark's royal wedding. Chown China's commemorative pieces feature a central portrait of the couple in full colour, embellished with gold wattle and lily of the valley. The Royal Coat of Arms is in full colour at the top of the plate. A kangaroo and elephant form part of the design. The china can be ordered from the Chown China factory in Hayle, Cornwall.

Bishop Leads Drawing for Wedding Window Seats

Thirty lucky DanChurchAid donors have won a prime-time window seat across from Copenhagen Cathedral on May 14. Danes around the country will sit glued before their television sets on May 14, to catch a glimpse of the newlywed Crown Princely couple. A select few will have the opportunity to see the couple walk out of the church as man and wife with their own eyes. On Friday, Copenhagen Bishop Erik Norman Svendsen, who will perform Frederik and Mary's wedding ceremony, drew lots for 30 prime window seats located directly across from the doors of the church. The bird's-eye viewing spots are located in offices belonging to humanitarian group DanChurch Aid, which decided to give some of its donors the opportunity to experience the Royal Wedding at close range.

DanChurch Aid sponsored a drawing for the window seats, and some 300 people submitted envelopes with humanitarian donations of DKK 100 (13.50 euros) each, in hopes of winning a lucky seat on the first floor. The lucky winners will have the opportunity to watch the live wedding telecast on TV, as well as through the office windows, whilst enjoying cake and coffee. The modest proceeds generated by the wedding drawing will be used to buy hens for poor women in Malawi.

Clover Hill Releases a Commemorative Label

Clover Hill vineyard proudly joins in the Danish national celebrations in honour of Crown Prince of Denmark Frederik’s wedding with Hobart’s Mary Donaldson on May 14, 2004, with the exclusive release in Denmark of a commemorative bottle of Clover Hill. Clover Hill is the flagship Tasmanian sparkling wine of Taltarni vineyards, one of Australia’s finest independent wineries. To celebrate the royal wedding, Taltarni Vineyards is proud to support its Danish distributor, House of Wine, with the release of 38,000 bottles dedicated to the royal couple with a commemorative monogram and dated May 14, 2004.

Our Danish distributor, House of Wine, has generously undertaken to contribute 10 Danish Kroner per bottle ($A 2.20) to “Save the Children”, the Danish charity organization of which Crown Prince Frederik is the patron,” announced Taltarni Vineyards’ CEO, Peter Steer. “We are privileged to be associated with such a charitable project and delighted to lend our support to House of Wine for a good cause.” Exclusively released in Denmark, the commemorative bottles of Clover Hill will be available for sale prior to the royal wedding. The launch will be organised by House of Wine on Friday, 30 April in conjunction with their donation of DKK 500,000 ($A 110,117) to the "Save the Children” foundation. Separately, 600 commemorative bottles of Clover Hill will also be offered by House of Wine to the royal couple as a wedding gift.

“The marriage of Tasmanian Mary Donaldson to the Crown Prince of Denmark has generated tremendous interest in Tasmania and is for us a great opportunity to promote a superb sparkling wine produced out of Tasmania. Clover Hill is certainly a royal delight and we are very proud to be associated with the royal wedding,” continued Peter Steer. With similar climate conditions to the French Champagne region and with exceptionally fertile ancient volcanic red soil, Tasmania produces some of the top sparkling wines Australia has to offer. Tasmania has shown that certain cool climate grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot and Riesling can produce wines hallmarked by exciting, intense and very distinctive varietal personality. In particular, the Pipers River in the north east of Tasmania where Clover Hill vineyard is located, stands out as a region producing remarkable wines....

Many Americans as well as myself will be able to watch the Spanish royal wedding. The Spanish-language channel, Univision, plan to air it live. I do hope that BBC America and / or German Journal air clips of the Danish royal wedding. Two years ago, both news channels showed clips of the Dutch royal wedding. Last year, German Journal had a special report about the birth of the Dutch Princess, Catharina-Amalia.

Police: Threat Against Wedding Low

According to the police the threat against the future royal wedding is very low. Therefore, no extra border control will be made in connection with the event. This is informed by chief police inspector Kai Vittrup of Copenhagen police. "But, we do have a strategy meaning we can increase the level of security and make several interventions. The level may be increased or decreased within minutes," he promises. Kai Vittrup will not reveal how many officers there will be on the streets of Copenhagen on May 14th. But, he says the number will be somewhere between the number of officers used when the American President Bill Clinton visited Copenhagen in 1997 and the EU Summit in 2002 - which means between 1,400 and 4,000 officers.

Museum to Document Folk Experience of Royal Wedding

The National Museum is leading a cultural anthropological study on Denmark's experience of the Royal Wedding. The National Museum wants to know: how do you plan to mark Frederik and Mary's big day? Will you follow the wedding cortege through the streets of Copenhagen, or sit at home glued to the television set? How will the Royal Wedding be commemorated in the nation's schools, offices, kindergartens, and nursing homes? Or are you even interested?

In cooperation with several research and funding institutions throughout the country, the National Museum is spearheading a cultural historical study entitled, "The Kingdom at the Other End--Danes and the Royal Wedding, 14 May 2004." The study is designed to shed light on how the Danish people will commemorate this historic day in public and in private--and away from the media spotlight. All Danes are encouraged to submit their stories via the homepage.

Denmark's Oldest Cake Shop To Mark Royal Wedding

Let them eat cake: La Glace will prepare an eight-layer wedding cake for members of the public on 14 May. "We're really starting to feel that there's a major royal wedding coming up on 14 May. We're going to be incredibly busy in the days leading up to the wedding, because so many people are planning to mark the occasion by ordering a nice cake, for example. Businesses are holding receptions or using cakes as decorations, and ordinary people are celebrating the wedding at home," said Marianne Kolos, proprietor of the oldest cake and confectioner's shop in Denmark, Copenhagen's Conditorie La Glace. In addition to its backlog of royal wedding orders, the shop--conveniently located just a stone's throw from Copenhagen Cathedral--will serve an eight-layer wedding cake to members of the public on hand for the big day. Kolos says the giant cake will be enough feed 1000 hungry Copenhageners.

Here is the Danish text.

Bycyklerne er fra i dag klar til fri afbenyttelse i det indre København. Her er cyklerne fotograferet på Rådhuspladsen og i anledningen af det nærtforestående kronprinsebryllup opstillet i et royalt monogram.

I get German Journal every night too. Also on Sunday mornings, they show a program by DW called Euromax. It is 30 minutes long. They show it twice. First in German and then in English. They usually have some good stories on it from the week´s news. That is for the Danish wedding. If you get TVEI then you will probably get a whole lot of coverage!

I'm a Latin-American living in Virginia. If you don't mind me asking, what part of Maryland is your cousin from? Practically every summer Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. are struck by heat waves, no thanks to global warming.

May 4, 2004 - The Defence Net

Tribute To The Crown Prince And Crown Princess-To-Be

On the day of the Liberation of Denmark in 1945, the Danish Defence will pay tribute to the Crown Prince and Crown Princess-to-be by means of a parade and an exhibition. The Danish Defence wishes to celebrate the forthcoming wedding, especially because of HRH Crown Prince Frederik’s close connection with the Defence. The Crown Prince has an impressive military education, and he has been through a very comprehensive programme, which means that large sections of the Defence have had contact with Crown Prince Frederik.

The parade and the exhibition will take place on Langeliniekajen, which will be open to the general public throughout Wednesday on May 5th 2004 from 09:00 - 21:00. In addition to the parade, Langeliniekajen will hold materiel, exhibitions, activities and displays. May 5th 2004 will be an event for both adults and children. In the morning, Crown Prince Frederik and Miss Mary Donaldson and the Royal Family will attend the parade, which will take place on land, at sea and in the air. The tribute to the Crown Prince and Crown Princess-to-be will resemble the event that took place in 1967, when HM The Queen married HRH The Prince Consort.

Wednesday, May 5th 2004 is also the day when Crown Prince Frederik and Miss Mary Donaldson will receive the gift presented by the Danish Defence and its personnel. The tribute of the Danish Defence, which is the only large-scale Defence event open to the public in 2004, is estimated at approximately DKK 3 million. Any questions relating to the events of the day should be addressed to Captain Henrik Gram Pedersen, phone: + 45 4567 3035.
