Yes, he was certainly feeling unwell. Also, he travelled from one adverse weather condition to another in a short space of time. Love the chic black number Mary wore.

Empress, I agree 100% with your comments.

I think the Foundation are paying her expenses on the mainland - which is saving the Danish taxpayer some money and also not costing the Australian taxpayer. A win-win.

mmm, i doubt it works like that. mary doesn't get more money from denmark if she goes on holiday. the DRF is assigned an x sum of money and then they use it as they please. if she were in australia for an official visit, then i guess it would be the state paying for that, but since it's a private one, i guess any of the money for it comes from mary's (and frederik's) allowance.

Quote:
As for the seating arrangements. she is an authorised dignitary and would require, just like any other dignitary, enough room for any travelling entourage (security, nanny etc). Australia's domestic carriers are budget airlines and bare no 'class' distinction so having a few seats between the public and the Crown Princely family is perfectly understandable.
i find it great if mary wants to travel low cost. however, if you want special treatment, then chose a service that provides it. flying low cost certainly sounds great (saving money and, most importantly, gives a great public image), but asking for some privileges in a service whose very intrinsic nature denies is not appropriate in my opinion. moreover, if we are talking about privacy and this being a private, holiday trip, travelling in a plane asking for more space than anyone else isn't the best way to go unnoticed.

now, coming back to topic, i find it great that mary found some time in her holiday to offer her support to the A&M charity. it certainly seems quite a good charity to be involved with.

I completely agree with you

I saw all those photos and I must say that I don't like her hairdo. Frederik kysser nervøs Mary - MSN Starlounge
Her dress is quite nice but could be shorter and should do something with the top of it or with sleeves and take some brooch. Doesn't she look little tired and I don't know like she take some weight?

They do what they want with that what they recive (money). Like many other parents they want and try do the best for their children.

CROWN Princess Mary of Denmark, who is visiting Melbourne this weekend, and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, have more in common than meets the eye.
Their sons will one day be kings of their respective countries.
Both boys will be different from their predecessors and neither will be subjected to the dysfunction that plagued the houses of Windsor and Oldenburg.
William of Wales and Christian of Demark have a lot in common.
They are distant cousins, descended from Queen Victoria

The ongoing debate regarding Princess Isabella's $700 fur jacket thingy has been moved
here to the Royals and Fur thread.

Thank you,

It's that time of year again, where the media tries to get a fresh slant on the Diana Tragedy and, in this case, it's more than a reach. The statement that they are "DIY princesses" is hilarious. The didn't marry a prince on their own. In each case there is a husband (prince), children (prince/princess)and extended family (middle class to Queen). DIY . . . I dont think so!

Princess Diana and Princess Mary have nothing in common except that they both married a Crown Prince. End of story!

Well some of the things the article points out are true, superficial though they may be:
Quote:
Their sons will one day be kings of their respective countries.
Quote:
Mary and Diana decided their boys would have as normal an upbringing as possible.


But, just as an aside, wouldn't it be cheaper to buy nappies from the supermarket, rather than a pharmacy??? (I mean, were she simple being "Mary of Hobart"...)

Quote:
Last week in Tasmania, the Crown Princess of Denmark was Mary of Hobart, driving to the pharmacy for nappies. Oh, and she brought her own pusher when she arrived home -- on a cut-price Jetstar flight.
