I take objection to Channel Seven referring to Tanja as one of the twins' nannies - the writers for the news/newspapers are paid to know their facts, and so often, they make mistakes which would be quite easy to find the answer to by a simple Google search.

Prince Frederik is expected to arrive in Sydney tonight.

Did they? Do you have a clip of the C7 thing or Mary and her entourages arrival...?

There wasn't a video of them arriving, they just showed still pictures (same as you posted in the Adelaide Now link) while speaking over it. I'm checking now to see if any other station had a piece with footage.

ETA: Clip of the arrival from Ten News. Select 'Royal Arrival' from the playlist on the right-hand side if it takes you to the main page.

The court has announced that Christian & Isabella would arrive in a week to Australia according to this article.

Yes - they said Mary was carrying Josephine, and that Prince Vincent was being carried by "one of the nannies".

This article from News.com.au also refers to Tanja as a nanny - pity there's no comment section there. You should have also seen the amount of luggage that was bundled into the car entourage - there was some luggage that looked suspiciously like hat boxes.

Shame on them! Like you said, not hard to check these things...

You can always count on Channel 7 & Channel 9 to mess up big when it comes to facts about royalty, whether it be about the Queen [Elizabeth II] or Mary.

Ah, these days much of the media is "immediate" and apparently the days when facts where checked are not what they were. It seems they rely on media briefs and press releases to fill the story.

At least we know the facts! I am hoping to go to Sydney tomorrow to see Mary and Frederik. Fingers crossed. Depends on how the kids are behaving! It is meant to be very hot so I bet Mary will be enjoying some Aussie heat.

Very exciting that the twins are here too.

I hope M&F will eventually visit western Australia. I have a feeling the average Australian by now know more about Greenland than the average Dane know about the entire western half of Australia.

Anyway, I noticed that M&F will also meet with the opposition leader, Tony Abott.
That's interesting.
Is it normal for foreign second-in-line royals visiting Australia to meet with the opposition?
I would find it perfectly normal if it was QMII who was visiting but this is "only" the CP-couple.
This looks like a dress rehersel of an offical state visit, right down to honor guard. Except that this would normally be the first thing on the agenda.

- Well, I need not repeat my pet-theory about M&F taking over.

We now also have names on two of M&F's entourage:
The chief of their court, Christian Schönau.
Mary's LiW, Tanja Doky.
A qualified guess: Lene Balleby, their PR-chief and Mary's hairdresser: Søren Hedegaard.

How wonderful to travel with a hairdresser Maybe that's why Mary looks so good after that long, long flight with babies!! What airline do they fly?
Also, I hope our Aussie members will call the offending TV stations and newspapers and correct them with their misinformation. They do rely on input. Call the news desk or if you have a reporter's name, leave a message for them. They really don't want to make mistakes either though sometimes it's the photo editor or editor that does these things.

Where ARE the nannies? And why isn't Fred traveling with Mary? Is it the travel apart for safety thing?

Hope you get to go Lady Rose.

Mary has previously travelled on Jetstar but I seriously doubt they arrived this time on that airline

Haha, that would be too many calls to make

maybe Mary asked tanya only to carry Vicent.. because I think the kids should be staying with her sister during the business trip and not with her...Mary looks wonderful, but it's easy when we have all the facilities she has....

Billed-Bladet - Video fra Australien: Mary og Frederik i Sydney
A video from Billed Bladet, where a reporter talks a bit about this visit. (You don't have to watch it).

M&F are not staying at a hotel this time. They are staying at the Governor's guest house in Sydney, which the reporter says has an excellent view over the bay.
- So this visit is as official as it can get.

With them is also 50 man strong delegation from Danish commerce. - So the expences of this visit, which the poor burdened Australian taxpayers has to foot (), should easily be covered by the business deals expected to come out of this visit.
- In other words, as much as we like to show off our royal family to the Australians, this visit is first and foremost about money.

IIRC none of Mary's siblings lives in Sydney (or Canberra or Melbourne).
So my guess is they will first meet in Tasmania, after the official visit.

As Muhler wrote, F&M stay in the Governor's guest house in Sydney.
