Thank you UserDane

So I'm assuming the visit was not an official one, but rather a 'day time engagement' so to speak.

The poor girl can't win. If she wore something new she'd be criticised for being a fashion-plate!

Fabulous, stunning, perfect. She gets a 10/10 from me on this outfit. I really like this color on her and her hair looks great. If only I could get mine to behave like that!

Article from Hellomagazine.com:


MARY GOES SOLO FOR VISIT TO PRAGUE

Princess Mary of Denmark began her first solo official foreign visit on Thursday, but no doubt felt close to her adopted homeland during her stay. The 34-year-old Aussie, who has up until now accompanied her husband Crown Prince Frederik in his duties, travelled to Prague where she attended a Danish concert and visited several of the Scandinavian country's businesses...

According to the court Mary needs to learn more about Europe. So we can assume Frederik knows every corner of Prague good enough not to go there anymore Well, of course one has to speak of a certain laziness in connection with Frederik. In all fairness I must though add, that he is probably taking care of Christian (together with the nannyfolks)

Mary wants to learn more about Europe - fine. But I wonder how many European first ladies and gents are pleased to act as her tourist guide?
Somehow I don’t understand the concept of this visit. But maybe it´s just me...

I really like her outfit! I never thought you could mix black and white with camel colored heels...well, now I have more options in my wardrobe!!! This is why I love to see how Mary dresses, not only does she have really nice clothes and wears nice colors but she gives me ideas of how to mix and match my own clothes. Anyone else do this? I can't wait to see what she wears on her visit to Russia...

Then we're 2! If Mary wants to learn more about Europe, then she should really go on trips where she gets to know the local culture - not visiting a lot of things connected to her own country Denmark (the bakery, concert etc).

For me there's no clear point of this visit, they should make up their minds - either make it an official visit connected to promoting Danish export/culture/etc as we see many heirs do, or then make it a trip with a purpose to learn about the country in itself - and then it should be about gettign to know the local culture, business life, politics etc etc..

{rude retort deleted - Elspeth} Have you ever read the original source for this? Or is it just hearsay from other boards?

Whether you think it is allright or not. Here was some of the program:

21 September 2006

11.00 Visit to 3rd Department of Internal Medicine,
Charles University Faculty of Medicine, Karlovo náměstí,
Facility for treatment and prevention of osteoporosis and
diabetes, based on co-operation with Danish
pharmaceutical companies NYCOMED and Novo Nordisk.

14.00 Boat Trip on the River Vltava, hosted by Mrs. Livia
Klausová. Departure: in front of St. Francis Church.

16.30 Reception, Ambassador’s Residence, Kopernikova 10,
Prague 2

19.15 Arrival Rudolfinum, Ceremonial Entrance. The concert by
the Danish National Symphony Orchestra will start at
19.30

22 September 2006

09.30 Visit to the Danish Bakery, Bilkova 8/6

10.00 Old Town Hall, meeting with Mr. Pavel Bém, Lord Mayor of
Prague, Staroměstské náměstí 1, Prague 1

11.00 Visit to B&O store, Pařižská, Prague 1

11.45 Visit to Strahov Monastery Basilica and Library

12.40 Visit to Prague Castle, lunch hosted by the wife of the
President of the Czech Republic, Livia Klausová.

On the website is was only mentioned as a short visit to Prague. The rest is just what some press wants to maken out of it, good or bad.

{edited for consistency - Elspeth} Whether the information is legitimate or not, two members (johann and GrandDuchess) still expressed a personal opinon.

If the information they've based their opinon or comments on is false, then provide the correct information or direct them to the source of such information, but don't disregard their opinons.

{edited for consistency - Elspeth} My point was the following: This trip has a lot of similarities to the women’s program during a state visit. But this is no state visit at all and Frederik is still in Denmark. So I´m just wondering about the main theme or the reason for Mary´s stopover in Prague. In which capacity is she travelling to Prague? I really don’t want to make a big thing of this - but maybe you can try and explain it in a more evidentiary way, fromEU?
