I think Mary just wanted to show off her new sunglasses, those Prada ones are cool, yes, she is a slave to fashion
Yes let's be fair and say the whole thing only happened to give the paps a nice opportunity at the beginning in order to keep them off for the rest of their stay Down Under and yes these Prada sunglasses are really looking stylish

The pics with the kids are really nice. Great to see brother & sister interact. I think Christian was a slow starter (probably boys are compared to girls) but he's really making up now. His sister is one of my favourites anyway but I find her outfit dreadful this time (again this pink cardigan combined with a hideous waistcoat) whilst Christian is dressed very stylish. I think the fact that Mary usually has people around her to carry or take care of Isabella allows Christian to be lazy; in real life an almost 3 year old would be forced to walk (or to hop on a kiddie board) whilst his mother has to take care of the toddler sister.

Not 100% sure about this but I think at the annual press conference in Caix Queen Margrethe said something along the line that Christian is a little bit jealous of his little sister. I also remember a Se&Hoer article this summer about Christian throwing a tantrum because he wanted to be carried by his mother as soon as he saw Isabella being handed over to somebody else (and his mother's arms free therefore).

It happened with my own children too, the elder one suddenly made a step back, so to speak, and wanted to be treated/carried like the younger one. So, I think this might be a reason why Mary is seen carrying Christian quite often.

Nope. My children are exactely the same age as Christian and Isabella (born 12.11.2005 and 30.03.2007) and we still have the opportunity for the older child to be carried or pushed in a stroler (ours is a cycle trailer where both children can be seated) Such small children still just don't always have the power for longer walks. And sometimes they just got bored and can hardly be forced to walk any further. Being 2 years 3/4 at age is very young - they still do need a lot of support to feel love and accepted.

The sunglasses are but they seem to have a lot of fun anyways. Wish them all a very nice time in Tasmania

I think Isabella is dressed to keep warm and play. If Mary started turning the children out in the kiddy version of haut couture the Danish press would be moaning about her being spendthrift and the Australian press that she was being pretentious.

Love the pictures of Mary and Christian swinging!
Great to see both kids.
Isabella looks so much like Christian when he was in her age.
Both kids are really adorable.

Mary knows by now that where she goes she has the media around her, even to go out to put her trash outside she has the media around her, privacy is somehting that she only has inside her walls , inside her home!!! She knows that and she knows how to deal with that so she smiles....
These photos at the park are lovely, it seams the weather is a bit cold in Hobart, Mary seams to be going for a ride with those boots, not the perfect outfirt for a day in the park...

She did?
I´ve already thought that it would be something like that as he seems absolutely not interested in his sister.
Well, probably not unusual for that little gap of age and the boy being the elder one. A little girl would maybe have more of a "2nd mummy"-feeling towards her younger brother.
Hopefully this would change...there are not many ppl in Denmark, who are in a similiar position and of an similar age.

No no, I'M what you'd call a slave to fashion. Even when I'm away from work, I'm still doing something in relation to work. That's a 'slave to fashion'.

And you truly think Mary's "bad"? Check out my wardrobe, and then you will I'm sure, gladely retract the above statement...
Don't worry M R . The day you will be in a hurry to run somewhere and do not apply make up, you will not only bump into everyone you know but there will be something happening the TV cameras will be there and they will have your picture all over the 10 o'clock news!!!!!!!!!!
Still, I think Mary is handling this whole circus with the photographers and gawkers, beautifully. I wonder though if the children feel somehow trapped or chased. They are too young to understand what is happenning.

I feel like a complete idiot! I was looking at the pictures and thinking "Why are they dressed in such warm clothes?" DUH!

Thanks for the pictures everybody. The kids looked like they had a really great time at the park. I love the pictures of Princess Isabella walking!

I'm so glad to see Christian & Isabella again and they are so big already. But I was thinking that although I'm happy for these photos I'm little bit sad that photographers are following them everywhere. But they all are so happy and enjoying themselves in park but why Isabella must be wear such clothes?! I'm sure there are much beautiful clothes for little girl. But it's not so important - most important is that they all are together and happy

In real life there is hardly somebody else around to hand the smaller child over to, meaning the older child either has to walk or to jump on a board Christian is lucky that in his case things are different and his mother is able to carry him although he is well capable of walking on his own (in contrast to Isabella who depends on her mother or a stroller).

I have a feeling Christian is particularly accustomed to their presence. Not once have I ever seen a photo or footage oh him shying away or making it known he doesn't like them being there. Given his intended future, it's no doubt for the best that he does familiarise with the circus that is, from such an early age. Within its' limitations, of course.

such lovely pictures! they really look like they are having a good time. it must be really emotional for mary to take both of her kids to australia and meet her family again.

the kids are absolutely lovely dressed in their winter clothes. are the other young girls mary's nieces with her sister?

i like the ensemble in the park, definitely looks lovely, but it is in my opinion a bit too much for a holiday and a very unsuccesful way of trying 'not to be noticed'. someone else would choose something more normal (just like her sister or nieces), just for the sake of not getting much of the public and media attention.

Christian is wearing that sweeter from Marie Chantal clothes and little Isabella is also very trendy with that fur body warm!!!!But Marie is wearing awful riding boots for a walk in the park....sometimes she tends to be ridiculus.
