Just my thoughts. If Mary just wanted to make a visit to get to know the Czech republic, she probably would have done that by herself and without all the cameras surrounding her, so it only seems logic to me that she's invited to strengthen the relations between Denmark and the Czech republic.

The orange Hugo Boss dress was gorgeous, btw.

Mary visited institutions and firms that are related to Denmark and the Czech Republic.
Isn't strenghtening bonds between countries one of the main tasks of the royals?

Moreover I read somewhere that the Czech President and his wife will come to Denmark in the near future.
Not sure if this is true, though.
Very well said! Ricarda! I always love and enjoy your posts. You are very eloquent to put things in perspective.

I also read somewhere (CPMEMB???????) that the Czech President and his wife will be invited to Denmark in November this year as a State Visit!

Mary is still new to her position and trips like these are a nice way to get her used to representing Denmark on her own. All I can say it that I want to see Prague now, looks so lovely.

It is lovely. And compared to other European cities, it is cheap. From Prague it's just a short drive to Pilsen (famous for its beer - the original "Pils") and then to Germany's Bavaria: via Nuremberg (medieval Old Town - just plain beautiful) to Munich (well, I guess you've heard about Munich..), then on to Austria's Salzburg (Mozart!) and through the Alps to Viennna (Habsburg!), then back to Prague - a wonderful trip back in time and really affordable....

DID you hear the one about the princess and the mayor?
Certainly Prague's Lord Mayor saw the funny side when Australian-born Crown Princess Mary started the jokes on a trip to the Czech Republic.

Australians in Prague greet their Danish Princess

Prague, Sept 21 (CTK) - Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, who is visiting the Czech Republic, was greeted enthusiastically by Australians while on a stroll in Prague on Thursday.

Prague is a very beautiful place, the Australian-born Princess Mary told CTK after a boat trip along the Vltava River, where she was accompanied by the wife of Czech President Vaclav Klaus, Livia Klausova.

Mary's looked her best she's ever looked on this trip it seems to me. The combo of diet/stylists/royal budget for clothes/good hair dresser/hunky hubby at home, certainly seems to yield results for this otherwise, to me, pretty-in-a-plain-ish-way girl next door, the variety of which one encounters dozens of times in a day.

What is interesting too, in my opinion, is that each time her lady in waiting is in a picture, she totally outshines Mary, in charisma, looks, the works.

The tourists surrounded the princess and wanted to take photographs of her, causing her bodyguards to force their way through the crowd."

Has anyone read in another source how Mary reacted to that? Was she annoyed, business-like, uninterested or did she take the time to say hello to her former countrymen but finally had to go on having her bodyguards forcing her a way?

I just wonder as this incident for me is only interesting in view of Mary's reaction - otherwise I think things like that will happen any time she steps out into a touristy place.

My husband thought the lady in waiting was a real fox...better looking than Mary, because he said, who is the princess? the red head?

HA!

It's a fact now.
The Czech President (and maybe his wife?) will come to Denmark and
Queen Margrethe will host a lunch for him at Fredensborg on Nov., 9th.
Mary will participate.
