Here are a few shots of the area where M and F were for the first event - the "Podium" level of the Opera House.

That is Jan Utzon being interviewed.

The rest of the media have scattered and the crowds are dispersing.

See the beautiful cruise ship docked at Circular Quay - and that is the front of the Bennelong Resturant just behind the people.

Looking to the other side from this area, that is the "Southern Cloud" sitting in Farm Cove, surrounded by the Botanical Gardens, with our navy base Garden Island further behind. (This is where CP Mary was snapped getting a Danish hot dog from the little Danish hot dog stand during the November 2011 visit.)

The Crown Prince Couple and Mary's family spent the Saturday late afternoon and evening cruising about on this, disembarking at Rose Bay when it was dark.

And this lovely gum tree is what you look at directly ahead from where all the action was, on the Opera House steps.


I recently read somewhere - sorry, I'm not sure who's post it was - that they had noticed that often in public, Frederik will glance at Mary and she will glance back. Whoever picked up on that trait of theirs, yes, here are a few photos of them doing that outside the Western Foyer on the morning of the second day Friday.

Frederik looks at Mary, Mary looks back at Frederik - sorry, just cut F out of the photo a bit there - and looks at Frederik, and then looks a bit coy when the lady next to her seems to pick up on it.


M and F's film crew who went with them aboard "Xpress" and to the garden of Admiralty House for the interview shown in the "Prize" telecast.

I didn't mean to photograph them, but completely missed M and F in this shot, in all the action and excitment.

Much the same thing happened the next day where I got a lovely series of photos of LIW Tanja getting into the car after the Ole Lynggaard store opening, and completely cut out CP Mary just on the other side, as she got in.

Here are a few shots, that at the time I thought CP Mary was waving to us, the crowd gathered about.

But I think now, that LIW Tanja pointed out to M and F that CP Mary's sister was present, and they are looking for her - then M gives a big wave.

Once aboard the "Xpress", CP Mary hits the mobile to text - maybe - "did you get that wave sis?".

There can sometimes be a strong breeze around the Opera House, jutting out into the water on three sides as it does.

Notice the "helper" carrying off the presents and bouquets from a bit earlier - on the right side of the pic. CP Mary and LIW Tanja on the left, waiting for the Opera House tour to begin.

A couple of nice shots of CP Mary. (I was just behind the media pen, and did they scramble into action when the Royal party suddenly arrived in front of them.)

And a final shot of M and F about to go back into the Opera House on the second day after the official photo session on the Western Foyer - with the Harbour Bridge for the background.

Best Wishes Everyone, Sun Lion.

In a few weeks I'm going to Australia again (this time for 6½ weeks) and it'll be interesting to see how much Mary and the DRF take up down there now, almost 10 years after the wedding.
Hello nwinther, I remembered you said you were coming down here for a visit. Hoping you are having a lovely time. The weather is most favourable at the moment-don't forget hat and sunscreen

Mary still on the covers but the Duchess of Cambridge and little George get a bit of cover time too now. Mary was mentioned on a cover last week. It was basically being over dramatic ( as these mags are) about M&F taking over more of QMII duties and how Mary is juggling parenting and extra duties. It also said that QMII is being very thoughtful and realises that M&F need to spend more time with their little children.

Enjoy your trip!!

Thank you Polyesco. That is a classic moment that I'm sure they'll always remember.

I'm off to the Sydney Opera House tomorrow and was looking at the website in advance.

I found this link to "MADE" for exchange program for Danish and Australian students. I do believe it has been started as part of the 40th anniversary of the Opera House and the connection to DK through M&F.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY AUSTRALIAN DANISH EXCHANGE - Sydney Opera House

I wasn't sure where else to put this.

A fellow shopper told the paper how thrilled she was to see M, and how charming she was to the store staff.


I picked up a copy of the little booklet "The Official Sydney Guide" at the airport and flipping through it came across a full page advertisment that has a photo of CP Mary - along with some celebrities.

A slightly different photo to the one above that the newspaper used at the time CP Mary made her visit, but obviously taken at the same time.

And out of a list of fifteen famous shoppers, the ad had "Princess Mary of Denmark" heading the list of who's who that have been spotted at this place.

Some of today's newpapers are carrying a photo and article on the latest Danish students who will be working here in Sydney on the Opera House.

Crown Prince Frederik's speech, when here in 2013, was the launch of this "MADE" program.

Now the young Danes will be contributing to dressing up one of the more drab, but highly used, parts of the building.

Can't link from my tablet - "Danish students project: turn Sydney Opera House truck stop into culture magnet" by Rick Feneley, if you're interested.
