It's interesting to see the galleries with both Mary and Frederik recently, in particular I'd say since PH "retired".

To children and young people in particular M&F is their regent couple. QMII is nice enough and they will turn out to see her, but M&F are, I believe, the rallying point for people under 30.
It's pretty logic actually, for children and young, M&F are about the same age as their parents, so it's natural to see them as part role models, part authority figures.

- Or do you think I'm completely off the mark here?

No, you are very right, Muhler. And I has mentioned the same before. I'm from the Crown Prince Couple's generation and for me and my generation F&M are our 'Regent couple'. And it's them who have our big interest. It's natural, they're the same age, our children are the same age etc.
And it doesn't help that they both are doing their job excellent and they both are very visible in the Danish population - because of their many many royal duties, but also because they are visible like you can run into them at the Danish streets.

Queen Margrethe also do it excellent and she is also our Queen. I will put it like this. After Prince Henrik has retired - it feels like Denmark these years have a Queen Margrethe and a 'Regent Couple' (in CP Frederik and CP Mary). Do that makes sense?


****

Here is a new video from BB from Mary visiting the Day Care Center - and the video shows Mary's naturalness with people. Notice how she is helping a resident to move his rolator witput making something big out of that, and how she - as the most natural thing in the world - touch people with loving strokes.

One can believe that Mary must be drained of energy with so many official duties.... but I think opposite it fills her with so much energy these event - it's obviously not an 'dull chore' for Mary, but a pleasure and something she enjoys and put her whole soul into.

BB says that the 66 years older man who Mary is talking to is a great admirer of Mary and her family.

Kronprinsesse Mary besøgte folkeskole men ikke alle måtte være med: Specialklasse-elever sendt væk

There is more on the story of Mary opening the new school in Aabybro.

All the pupils were there except some from classes for pupils with special needs. They had been send away on an outing the day Mary came.
That has resulted in a stir among at least some of the parents.

The school say they are sorry, but it was actually done in the best interest of the children.

- No article say it directly but I imagine the school thought the children would be too excited. There are children with conditions who prefer no unusual commotion around them.
However, IMO they could just have informed the parents over the school's intranet.

Crown Princess Mary participates in the United Nations General Assembly in New York

Crown Princess Mary must have traveled from Denmark today - because she participates in the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) in New York the next three days from 19 to 21 September.

**

It will be a quick visit for Mary, but neverless she has events from 7 o'clock in the morning to late evening.

Mary's visit ends on Wednesday afternoon. Only six days before she and Frederik begin their official business delegation to Washington and Boston. Some might think Mary deserves to take a few days off and enjoys the New York City... But no. Already on Thursday evening Mary has official events at home in Denmark... And I am quite sure that it is mostly because she will reach home to her children and have the 6 days with them before her and Frederik's official business trip.

But Mary really deserves her apanage! Boy, she works for it. But she also comes from a family where there had to work for a living.
Although Mary is the most popular member of the Danish royal family, and are known for being hard working and receiving postive publicity, I sometimes don't think she gets enough credit for how many official duties she has! It could easily be spread more out to the public. As for giving an example: I doubt this working visit will get much or even any coverage in the bigger Danish media. You know, those boring meetings visit.. But one can always dream, can't they...


Here's Mary's programme for the visit

Thanks Polyesco

As I had predicted this official working visit has not gotten much coverage. It's a shame.

But with Mary and Frederik already in six days begin their journey back to the United States on their official business visits in Washington and Boston the Danish media have been waiting to travel to the big trip.

Mary? Yes she returns home in the few days between the two visits - and when she just reach to attend 2 official duties at home while. Such a thing could I, as a royalist, dream was spread more out to the people.

A video from TV2: Øllebrød til USA: Mary og Løkke i begejstring over Meyers madtempel - TV 2

While Mary was in New York and as a prelude I guess to M&F's upcoming visit, Mary with the PM Lars Løkke, went to see a show of very traditional Danish food.
One thing being "øllebrød" = bread in beer.

It's an acquired taste... Even though I got it on occasion as a child, it does not belong to my favorite dishes but many swear to it.

It's basically rye-bread boiled in beer and added water until it gets the consistency of a thing porridge. You serve with milk or cream.
It's actually pretty nutritious and full of calories and as such it was very much eaten by the poor or simply by those families that had twelve children and counting...
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-q8xsaguHAM...ebr%C3%B8d.jpg

It's also a light dish, so you will get a good meal without feeling like you've just eaten a brick! Which is a problem for many in the morning, myself included.
And don't worry there is no chance you, your children or your dog will become tipsy from the beer.

There are of course variants of øllebrød, but how to make it?
Øllebrød (Danish Rye Bread Porridge) | Foodie Underground

You can of course get it ready made or as powder, but no, no, no - that is an absolute no go! Homemade is best.

thanks for enlightening us on danish gastronomy, mulher! bread on beer does certainly not sound like my favourite but it is interesting to hear about specific dishes of different part of the world.

like the first skirt she wore, i liked mary's skirt on her last day too with its bold colours.

usually such details are not released, although we did find out where royals stayed for some of their official visits in the past. i assume it is due to security concerns.

in general, when we do find out where royals stay, they stay in hotels, but i assume that they do stay in consulate / embassy accommodation if they have the facilities to do so. there's probably only a few of such embassies that have rooms for people to stay in, so i guess this is not what happens for most visits.

in cities like NY, the press usually spots royals entering and exiting their hotels so at times we know where they stayed.
