I do however get the point you're trying to make and there is, depending on a range of factors, a slight difference in diction.

Could be worse - you could sound like a Queenslander!

The visit made news coverage every morning, midday, afternooon and evening. Also morning chatshows and article pieces in the main papers.

This visit attracted a lot of press and a good deal of interest by all accounts.

I remember this too! The PoW went to Australia in the time
leading up to his wedding to Camilla Parker-Bowles, and he found
himself eclipsed by Frederik and Mary!
I remember that the UK Guardian newspaper did a piece on the
clash, musing over the idea of renaming the particular part of OZ New South Denmark!
IMO it was bad timing on of part of St. James' Palace, or wherever
the Pow's court is. It's should be a nobrainer that a local girl
turned princess would attract attention on her first official visit
to her native country. Apparently the British forgot to think so in
their planning!

Thanks Lady Rosie, also to the other Australian members! It's interesting to read what the reception has actually been like in Australia. Parts of the Danish press are sometimes reporting DRF events in a rosy light - well, sometimes too rosy for my taste. I like my royal family but I never thought that they would attract crowds like William and Kate and Charles & Diana in their days.

Plus there was actual attention paid to the Danish products and services that Mary and Frederik were supporting (besides the comments on fashion, etc.)

I'd like to say a huge thank you to my fellow Australians who kept me abreast of Frederik and Mary's events when I couldn't go myself Thanks!

Billed-Bladet - Video: Kronprinsparret tager afsked med Australien

According to this video diary from Billed Bladet Christian and Bella has arrived in Australia with their nanny.
In the next issue there will be a long interview with M&F. (You need not watch the video).

Thanks, Madame Royale That means there has been considerably more coverage, and more comprehensive coverage than I thought.

Only part they have wrong is that Frederick isn't in Australia.

Mary was spied shopping today on Chapel Street, South Yarra. It's largely considered Melbourne's executive fashion and food strip with it's designer label boutiques and pricey bistro's.

Children's clothing stores and several boutiques are said to have caught the eye of Denmark's Crown Princess.

That's positively intrusive . I guess some people will never know the meaning of 'personal space'.

Broadmeadows is an area in Melbourne's north western suburbs that could be justly described as not neceassrily being accustomed with what many would consider to be the appropriate restraint when meeting a high profiled indavidual.

I don't state this in any way to speak poorly of the people who live there whatsoever, but it is a community that houses alot of families who work hard but make little, and would be likely to invite Mary over for a few 'snags' (sausages) and a beer.

I'm not at all surprised myself, and that kind of interaction is quite intrusive although the lady would have meant the Crown Princess no offence I'm sure. Clearly overly excited by the occasion.

Oh Mary is a professional. She seemed to handle herself beautifully so as not to offend. I agree Madame Royale with what you said throughout your post and also that the lady was probably showing her excitement. Not something Mary would have to deal with everyday thank fully.

If you look at Frederik, you will se why he keeps his hands in his pockets.
- To prevent his arms from growing out of his sleeves.

I've really enjoyed following along on this thread and would like to thank everyone who provided information and commentary. I think, even after all this time, and in spite of the wonderful life she seems to have in Denmark, that it must still sometimes be hard for CP Mary to be so far away from the society she grew up in. She certainly seemed thrilled to be back and I think both she and that guy who seemed to be in a lot of the photos with her looked quite touched at the warm reception they were given.
