Thans for the clip and video.

When Mary was met by the flowerboys (this somehow sounds wrong... oh, well) she said: "Hi". The boy: "Welcome Your Royal Higness". Mary: "A thousand thanks/thank you very much". Shaking hands Mary asked: "What's your name"? Boy: "My name is Joachim". I can't make out the other boy's name. Mary: "Oh (I see)", and that was the sign to move aside boys.
So no "what a nice dress" this time.

The Australian Twin Register is also represented and it was more or less hinted that the Danish register looked forward to the (close) co-operation and exchange of research.

- Even though the Danish register is much older than the Australian, the genetic diversity is of course much larger, which must of interest to Danish researchers. While the Danish registry is genetically much more homogenous, which may be of interest to Australian researcers.
So Mary coming form Australia and being mothers of twins herself, is of course an excellent way to connect researchers as well.

Thank you, Muhler

I hear it as the other boy is named Jonas. You can also hear Mary ask the boys something like "hey, how are you?" Maybe a replacement for "what a nice dress"

Oh, don't be withholding the 'nice dress' clip!!...please share :) I have never heard of this before...I know Mary sometimes struggles with the language, but what was she REALLY trying to say?

I think you may have misunderstood Muhler's post. I think
"what a nice dress"
is what Mary often says to the lovely little flower girls. Muhler was just noting that it was not said this time as two boys presented the flowers

Maybe she needs a stock standard phrase for encountering flower boys...like 'How lovely' or 'Good job' or 'Great name' or 'Nice to meet you' :)

That's correct.

Yes, or "Cool hair". From personal experience I know that boys, and not least teenage boys nowadays pay a lot of attention to their hair.

Thanks, Fairy Tale.
Mary was asked whether her own twins would end up in the registry one day. (It's voluntarily. Those who do have their genes checked and fill out questionaires by researchers. Currently there are more than 80.000 sets of twins in the Danish registy. And because it's so old it attracts international attention. The aim of the Australian registry, for which Mary is also patron, is the same. It has been around since 1980 or so). Mary replied: "Perhaps".

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #4, 2013.
De har et særligt forhold - They have a special relationship.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As we all know by now, Mary attended the 60th jubilee of the Danish Twin Registry and that took place at Southern Danish University in Odense. (*)
Here 150 sets of twins were invited in the age from eighteen to 90 years old. The twins were seated in rows at the auditorium, next to each other and many wearing matching clothes and matching ways to gesticulate. - It must have been an interesting sight....
Well inside, Mary and the others listened for an hour and a half about the research results the Danish Registry has been the basis for.

Mary said afterwards: "I have been surprised as to how wide the research is and how big a significance it has been for everything - from schizophrenic (**), heart deseases and diabetis".

It can get demanding to have twins: "It's lovely! Of course it can get a bit hectic, when there are two of the same age. But it's an enormous priviledge to see how the two little ones develope and the special relationship they have together"

Do they already have a special connection with each other?
Mary smiled: "Yes, you experience that clearly. They have many similarities but being fraternal they also have many differencies. They have a special relationship and it's a gift to wittness".

Will they stick together in thick and thin?
Mary laughed heartily: "I'm sure they will".

About being patron for the Danish and Australien twin registries: "I'm incredibly pleased to be patron and to learn much more about this subject today. That makes me very proud, because the register is a huge contribution and because the knowledge that comes with such a registry has so big a significance for the whole science within health".

Will Vincent and Josephine one day end up in the registry? Mary: "Perhaps".

We are also informed that the earrings Mary wore are from Ole Lynggaard. They are in the shape of a leave in 18 carats gold with 46 brilliants and a big tear shaped cut gem.

(*) Southern Danish University, for which our Marie is patron, is unique among the Danish universities in not having a home town. Instead the various departments are spread out over several towns and cities in the southern part of Denmark.

(**) That word is hard enough to spell in Danish, in English it's a downright challenge!

Yesterday evening, Mary attend the opening ceremony of "Premier Global Conference of the ESC". She also held a almost 10 minutes long and very impassioned speech IMO.

Picture of Mary arriving : https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.n...77355778_n.jpg

Video of her arriving:


Mary's entire speech:

A funny little note: Halfway in the speech Mary wishes all welcome and says she hopes they will find some time to experience a little bit of Denmark. She then reveals that spring is her favorite season of the year ... then she smiles and adds .. but we are not so lucky today. And she is absolutely right, it rained from morning to evening yesterday and we got as much rain on that one day that we usually tend to get in an entire month

Thanks, Roskilde

You bet! We had 61 mm over here that day. We almost swam home from work.

A worthy cause that deserves attention.

Oh, probably that the torch actually did light up as on cue.

They will indeed experience Nordic nights. Dusk is setting in at 22.30 at this time of year. It will be dark only a little before 23.00.

ADDED: In case anyone should be wondering, the tune the drummers and fifers from the Tivoli Guard is playing is: København = Copenhagen.
