Seriously?! The doctor felt comfortable saying that to a Princess? Maybe this is a translation issue, but in English "shut up" is not exactly the most polite way to tell someone to be quiet. Although even if there is a more polite way of phrasing it in Danish, I'm still surprised he would say anything at all!

Is this related to the "false alarm" articles in the Australian newspapers or is it "the real thing" this time?

Frederik og Mary på Riget - Royale - BT.dk

My guess is Mary was there for a checkup and went home after that. I'm still going to check other news outlets to be sure.

Edit: Looks like I was right, according to Berlingske Tidende it was the "last control visit" or should I say check up.

BT has the story:

Frederik og Mary på Riget - Royale - BT.dk

Frederik was seen arrinving at Rigshospitalet at 18.00.

According to the DRF spokesperson, Lene balleby, Mary was there for a check-up and they are all back home at Amalienborg.

He did. The doctor said: "Hold kæft"! and that can only be translated to: "Shut up"! - in a very direct manner indeed.

Now, doctors tend to, not least in the 60's, to see themselves at half-gods. And this pretty rude way to address Princess Margrethe, was perhaps what was needed in that situation.

Yees, that's a bit odd, isn't it?

Either Mary felt some contractions and it was decided to rush her along, and Frederik followed as soon as he could. And they have now returned home.
Or she is in labour and at the hospital right now. - And Lene balleby has just laid out a smokescreen.

What if she's not technically in labour just yet (like the spokesperson stated) but they've decided to take her in anyway? While she might not be in labour (she might have had some contractions like Muhler said) she is very close to that so maybe they want to keep her there for the remainder of her pregnancy just to be sure.

I guess we'll know when the labour has started. It might also be Mary is at home but was escorted out of the hospital from a different door than Frederik to divert the press. All speculation I know!

It would be a good supposition. But until we have the offical news about the addmission to Hospital for Mary, all these news are only speculations regard her probably begins of labour.

Of course the media attention regarding the very pregnant princess takes a real hype now. With Mary almost vanishing from the public eye, any photo of her behind or before windows must worth a fortune.

But I don't understand the discussion here. All day long we (incl. myself) at this forum are guessing what a certain royal may do or not do, what he or she may think or not think and feel. Some of us even are most certain they know all about it. We know almost everything from the royals - and by this I mean really almost everything. And now we act distracted when such a picture like the one from Princess Mary has been published? In a certain sense we are already disturbing her privacy with or without picture.

In some ways your right, but I still see a big difference between a written discussion in a forum or a hiding photographer near the palace.

For example: I don't give a sh** if someone wants to discuss weather or not not I'm just using the loo. But if someone hides in my frontyard and makes a photo when I'm actually sitting on said loo and think I'm all by myself, then I give a lot sh** about the situation. To be honest, I would be really mad.

OK, back to the topic. What's going in in Copenhagen right now? Is there even something going on?

Yeah, we can only speculate about Frederik arriving later and/or going back alone. the option of trying to divert the media attention from Mary is a good one: after all, he is not pregnant and probabily is better equipped to appear in pubblic at the moment.
One thing bothers me, though: how can people from other (hyper-critical, imo) blogs infer from this a lack of interest from Frederik's part or even a disgust for the whole thing.
i am new to this blog but have been following them for a long time and really have to say that from a long time on I have seen the couple very close.

This reminds me of the biography of Baroness Von Trapp and the real "Sound of Music" story. The baroness, I read, hid a pregnancy right up to the ninth month when they were on tour in the States after escaping the Nazis, by making sure her "top shelf" protuded more! She said she laughed because she was constantly described in press clippings as "portly".

Australia's Daily Telegraph is reporting that Mary is in labour ... I guess they could have confused a checkup with a birth!

The Australian press can be relied upon to make things up as they go along. I never forget the headline when Mary was pregnant with Christian, it said; IT'S A GIRL" they knew definately her baby was going to be a girl. And then beautiful Christian came along. So I wouldn't take too much notice of the Aussie press.

Wow, "It's a girl!" Just wow!

As rude as it was, and telling someone to shut up is rude, sometimes it's what's most warranted in a situation. Sometimes you need to beyond the pall to reign in a situation and if a woman who is in labor is really making a lot of noise, not necessarily because she's in excruciating pain, but because she's just making a lot of noise, telling her rather matter-of-factly to shut up might make her see she's being rather obnoxious and should control herself. That happened to me when I was having surgery on my left leg 12 years ago. I was 17, scared out of my wits, and not in pain so much as just terrified and unsure of what was going on, so I was scream-crying like I was being stabbed with a machete. A nurse came over and said "Oh for heaven's sake, shut up......you're not in that much pain." Was that the most tactful thing for her say? Absolutely not. Did it make me realize I was being ridiculous and needed to calm down? Yes.

Will the admission in hospital be announced at the website of the DRF?
