There was a segment with Mary meeting this band and swaying along to the rhythms.
Mary was in great mood!

- I think you could clearly tell that she had been speaking Englsih for most of the day, her accent was much more pronounced than usual.
Nothing wrong with her mastery of spoken Danish, just that her accent became more obvious.

Do you mean her Danish had an Australian accent or that her English had its Australian twang? You can certainly tell where she if from when she speaks English!

That I can't tell. Just more accent.

Only natural I guess. Perhaps especially for someone who learned a foreign language fairly late in life. Especially a language that lack many of the sounds that Danish has. (I would I imagine be easier for someone speaking German or French (and Hindi, I've been told) to get the Danish vowels.

Yes. She lived in Clear Lake City, Houston from 1974 to 1975. John Donaldson was working in Houston at the time. Mary started her schooling in Texas.

Different or pretty similar?

Danish and Australian flags for Mary.
What lovely pictures. Thanks.

Mary lights up near people and children (and dogs and horses).
Wherever they are, you can be sure to find Mary there.
She is really good at taking the time to greet as many people as possible. At any event. Even if the official program is delayed a bit.
Not everyone in the DRF is good to remembering that.
And that means a lot to people when you have been waiting... that the royals actually takes their time to greet.

IIRC, Mary has said something similar to: "The least we can do is to take the time to greet people who have met up. They may have waited a long time and in bad weather." Can't remember more, but something in that style.

I'm glad to see that Christian and Isabella, growing older, follow that track.
It will be exciting to follow them.

Interesting - you learn something new everyday. This visit will probably a nice trip down memory lane for Mary!

Some similarities. Houston resembles more Brisbane - humid and subtropical in summer and dry in the winter. Sydney definitely has tropical climate, but not like Brisbane.

That is sweet. We still regard CP Mary as an Aussie, who happens to be the Danish Crown Princess and future Queen Consort

Those in the crowd must be Australian ex-pats living in Houston. My sister-in-law and family live in Texas too....a popular place for Aussie ex-pats!
