Crown Princess Letizia will certainly be in the center of the attention in Jordan a week into her royalty - and not Noor - as Letizia will attend the celebration of the marriage of Crown Prince Hamzah.

has it been officially announced that letizia will be in jordan ? what about mary ?

Mary's prince at home
By SHARRI MARKSON in Hobart
18jan04

HE might be the next King of Denmark, but Prince Frederik was treating his fiancee Mary Donaldson like a true princess yesterday.

Attending the wedding of Ms Donaldson's sister, Patricia Woods, in Hobart, Prince Frederik played footman to his princess-to-be, struggling to keep the umbrella over Ms Donaldson as they left the ceremony.
Only months before her own fairytale wedding, Ms Donaldson watched her elder sister walk down the aisle for the second time.

Ms Woods, 35, exchanged vows with her boyfriend of 18 months, Scott Bailey, in a ceremony at a friend's home in the exclusive waterfront suburb of Sandy Bay.

Ms Donaldson, 31, read a love poem that touched guests, who described the reading as "beautiful" and "romantic".

Even the Prince of Denmark was impressed by the low-key ceremony.

"It was the way a wedding should be," he said.

Not in the official bridal party, Ms Donaldson, 31, wore a teal cotton woven dress with a silver silk sash around her waist and matching gold bag and shoes.

She arrived in a blue Holden station wagon with Prince Frederik, who was dressed in a grey suit and blue shirt.

About 40 guests arrived from 3pm for Ms Woods' big day contrasting with her younger sister's planned nuptials in May.

A crowd of more than 300,000 is expected to take to the streets when Ms Donaldson marries Prince Frederik in Copenhagen Cathedral on May 14.

The newlywed royal couple will be led in a horse-drawn carriage to an extravagant reception at an 18th century palace.

But yesterday, friends and family enjoyed a champagne afternoon tea followed by cocktails at Rockefellers Restaurant on the waterfront before continuing the celebrations at Wrest Point Casino.

Ms Woods, a mother of three, works as a nurse and aerobics instructor at Hobart Fitness Centre, where she met Mr Bailey, a keen football player and former lifeguard.

Ms Donaldson, a former real estate agent, appeared happy and relaxed as she proudly introduced her fiance to extended family and friends.

Prince Frederik, who will have Tasmania as his second home, has been seeing the sights with his bride-to-be.

Wedding a warm-up for fairytale couple
By Andrew Darby
January 18, 2004

Mary Donaldson and Crown Prince Frederik, top, arrive at the wedding of her sister Patricia, above.
Pictures: Heath Missen, Peter Mathew

Princess-to-be Mary Donaldson introduced an ancient European monarchy to a modern Australian marriage yesterday, and proved herself a romantic, as well.

Ms Donaldson, 31, from Hobart, will marry Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik in a traditional royal wedding on May 14.

Yesterday, in sharp contrast to the grandness of the occasion to come, the couple helped to celebrate the low-key wedding of Ms Donaldson's sister, Patricia.

Prince Frederik said on arrival in Hobart that he thought yesterday could provide a "road map" for the Danish marriage, and it gave him a chance to get to know the Donaldson family.

But by comparison this was a second marriage with a limited guest list, held at a suburban Hobart house and celebrated later at a restaurant.

Guests said that Ms Donaldson read a poem of her own composition to the couple during the ceremony. Asked about the event, Ms Donaldson said: "I thought it was lovely."

The tight Danish management of the public face of the occasion was a taste of what is to come for the royal wedding.

Since arriving in Hobart, only a Danish television crew sanctioned by the palace in Copenhagen has been told the couple's movements.

Danish bodyguards with the couple blocked a street to traffic in the quiet Hobart suburb of Sandy Bay, and barred access to the house.

A cold front that brought heavy summer rain forced the planned garden ceremony indoors, and in front of about 50 guests Patricia married Scott Bailey, a Hobart plasterer. Their toddler, Molly, also attended. Ms Donaldson wore a floating green dress and high gold sandals, while Mary's father, Scottish-born John Donaldson, wore a kilt in a likely foretaste of Donaldson dress for the royal wedding.

I think Mary smiles more back in Australia because she is more relaxed.

I think that being back in Australia where she grew up and is most familiar with and is surrounded by her family and people she has known for a while has gone a long way to making her more at ease and comfortable.

Undoubtedly in Denmark she feels the constant pressure and scrutiny. But in Australia, even with the presence of the cameras and the press, Mary has lots of support.

To me it seems that few posters realize that Mary (5 February 1972) is the youngest of the four siblings in the Donaldson family. She is the only one not married and the only not having children.
I don't understand what Mary being the youngest and unmarried without children has to do with her being allgedly viewed as moody or smiling more in Australia than in Denmark.

She is only 31 year's old -- lots of women are unmarried and without children at her age. And lots of people I know are the only unmarried sibling in their families but that doesn't mean they are moody or grumpy people.

Crown Prince Felipe told the media about the couple's attendance at those 2 events in may.

Nothing has been said about F&M to Jordan's royal party or not - but I don't think they will go there.

I didn't have that negative article in mind at all when I posted the above

I should have quoted one example of what I referred to :

I meant Jane then. The one with Mary. That's right. They must be Patricia's kids. Of course, it makes sense.
Nice to get to know about Mary's nieces and nephews though, wasn't it ?

Great photos, Alexandria. I like the green. Subtle. Looks like a wet place, of course so it's perfect for the mood too.

It seems to me, that Frederik and Mary seem "closer" now than they did before. When the engagment photos were taken, they were so stiff and didn't really portray the image of a couple in love. Maybe it was nerves, or Mary just had not yet adjusted to the whole fishbowl idea yet, but now they seem really close and relaxed. I have to say, Mary really has grown on me in the last few months.

"And, Mary and her sisters really do look very much alike!"

I don't know too many Tasmanian women but I think it's safe to say they are the fairest sisters on the Apple Isle. Congratulations to Patricia.

They look so sweet together...

Oh, and the picture of Frederik trying to stretch out his arm with the umbrella so that it would cover Mary, and he had this slightly desperate look on his face ... too good for words.

How about using that for one of the caption competitions?

I agree, Gabriella, I, too, think that Frederik and Mary seem so much more relaxed at this occasion than on the day of their engagement. They seem not only relaxed in each other's company with the prying eyes of journalists and photographers, but also enjoying each other's company. I've noticed from these Australian visit pictures that the couple seems much more affectionate physically towards each other, such as holding hands, which is sweet to see.

LOL!!! It's great that they arrived in a Holden!! Holden's are as Australian as you can be and are absolutely everwhere in Australian (coz they're made here). That should score Fred some brownie points with the Aussies!!!
