Yes, Danish Royal Watchers discuss it here. They say that it looks like he had a replacement ring (and show a picture from Verbier).

This explains her absence from the royal hunt. Were any photos released?

Thank you Paty. Its really great to see that Mary did continue with the training and got through it and not just left with a 2day course.

Mary has been promoted to lieutenant in the Home Guard. After having completed her basic officers training she is now attached to the staff in Total Defence Region Copenhagen.

I'm glad, she's continued her training and congratulations that she's made it to lieutenant.

Carrying on a tradition perhaps? Isn't that what royals do ?
Queen Margrethe was educated in the Home Guard as well.

That makes sense to me, UserDane, and I suspect that you have answered the question. Well done.

The two women are of different status. I have never heard that it's a tradition for a consort to do military trainings.

Neither have I, donnaK, but perhaps Mary is starting a new tradition for Crown Princesses with Queen Margrethe's blessing, of course!

Mary's upbringing in Australia would have been a lot more "outdoorsy" if you get my drift. I think this is one chance she gets to be herself away from the cameras, and show the flag for the Home Guard. I bet she had a ball!

I think it's so good that she didt that. Because shes a big rolemodel fore the danish people, and she shows that she isn't afraid to do what she wants.

I realice this may seam a foreign concept to you, but the answer is probably "because she wants to". Noone is forcing this on her. But she has married into a family, for whom military and military training, is a big deal.

As far as I know Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden had a military education, too.

That woman never cease to amaze me, she is radiant even in army fatigue. Frederick is a very lucky man.
