The visit is also beginning to reach the Danish papers. It's forenoon here right now.

From BT: En hotdog , tak - Royale - BT.dk
You know the drill by now: "Se stort billede" = hi-res picture.

Here from the BBQ party where Mary headed straight for a Danish sausage/hotdog stand where she said: "I'd like a hotdog please".
Apparantly that surprised everyone - and the Australian police officers present jumped in after Mary and formed a line at the stand.

The stand had been flown in from Copenhagen.
Such hotdog stands are a part of the picture in every Danish town with a bit of selfrespect. And you may recall that such a stand delivered the midnight snack at Joachim and our Marie's wedding and later on at another party, can't remember which.

This is the first time Danish commerce have allied themselves with representatives of Danish culture as well as the DRF in providing a total experience for potential customers in this export offensive to Australia.

------------------

Another article from BT: http://www.bt.dk/udland/mary-giver-a...-om-tvillinger

This time about how an onlooker asked how to deal with twins.
Mary replied: "Syncronisation and organisation".

Muhler, I will say Frederik shone in his own way and made just as much an impression on me as Mary.

His quiet, confident, gracious manner won me over. Your country is in fine hands ( even if you took Mary from us )

I got talking to a couple different police officers and one commented on the level of protection accorded to the royal couple. M & F are in very safe hands. We'll look after them for you.

I've had a great day. Thank you for your interest. Will keep sending links as more interesting articles/photos come to hand.

American Dane, what bad luck. Grrr.

Thanks Lady Rosie

I was wondering why M&F were trampling away on the bicycles and here is the explanation: Mary og Frederik cykler sig til to australske smoothies - Politiken.dk

They were creating energy enough to make two fruit-smoothies.

- Interesting idea! And probably healthy too. - If you can create chips and licorise that way as well, we will definitely get two of them thingies in the Muhler home! - Oh, yeah, add kanelsnegle = cinnamon swirls to the list as well...

This is just lovely... Mary when she is best It shows exactly why I love Mary.


Danish B.T. brings the story too: http://www.bt.dk/royale/mary-tog-fusen-paa-journalist

Many thanks for all the pics and articles you post in here.

Mary simply grows ever more fabulous! She has such a lovely way about her, she looks wonderful, and she and Frederik share a light touch that makes them so appealing together.

There were two segments on TV2 news at 19.00 tonight.

A pretty long one, covering the Bondi event from the view of the onlookers and a very brief interview with M&F about how they had been recieved.
Frederik was asked whether he felt like JFK. Who, as you may recall, at some point almost meekly pointed out that he was the husband. - Frederik didn't feel like that however, but he was pleased with the welcome Mary in particular had been recieved with.
Then the weather forecast. It's November with a very big N, right now here in DK! And no, we are not the least bit envious of you Aussies and the weather you have. Not at all, perish the thought. (There is an outside chance this was irony...).
The closing segment was the photoshoot outside the Governor General's house, with Josephine and Vincent.

This clips should surface in a couple of hours.

------------------------

ADDED: Here is the long segment: TV 2 Nyhederne - Video (Patience 30 seconds of advert first!!)

Mary was asked initially about how it feels to be recieved like this, and searching a bit for the words, she replied that it was lovely and that the interest in their family is heartwarming.
Frederik was simply pleased with focus on the Crown Princess and that they (the Australians) still considered her one of their own".

The next question a few seconds later is directed at Frederik, where he is asked whether he feels like JFK. Laughingly he responds that he is married to the Crown Princess and that is all that matters to him. Mary rewarded him with a pad on his back.- (You are allowed to swoon now, ladies )

This is the final segment with the twins: TV 2 Nyhederne - Video

Just as a matter of interest for those of you who don't know. We have many women in high profile jobs here. Our Prime Minister is a woman - Julia Gillard, (not seen on day 1). Our Governor General of Australia - a woman - Quentin Bryce [ she is the Queens representative], seen with Mary is the Mayor of Sydney - Clover Moore. And Mary will see later in the week the State Governor Marie Bashir. Whom she and Fred have met on many occasions.

Well JFK was quite pleased with Jackie's reception in France and later Texas, so perhaps Frederik is a little bit like JFK (minus a few things, obviously...)

Muhler, I'd be happy to trade your November with a capital N for the humidity down here, let me know!

Yeah, Australia sure doesn't seem like the most backward country in the world in that respect.

Careful American Dane, I may take you on your word...

I doubt we'll get photos from the official dinner dazz, as usually in Australia media are only given access to government dinners which are held in Canberra. And as the 'main players' were already inside Admiralty House before the dinner, I doubt many photographers would have stayed around/been allowed to stay past the photo call in the afternoon. The only chance of having photos from the dinner would be if some were uploaded to the Governor-General's website.

News report from Channel Ten, including footage from inside Frederik and Mary's audience with the Governor-General.

Muhler, your contributions to these forums are unlike most others I read. It's so good of you to provide the articles, translate them for the benefit of others and inject your wonderfully dry, wry sense of humour that I for one thoroughly enjoy.

Tak så meget!

That Mary should feel as though she still, dare I suggest, 'fits in' and 'belongs' must be something rather important to her. And understandably so, for this country makes up a very large part of who she is and what she stands for. She is by all means Danish, be it with an Australian twist.

Quote:

A man who clearly understands and appreciates the very large role his wife's homeland continues to play, and no doubt always will, throughout her life and indeed, that of their family's.

I don't for one moment think Frederik at all cares that this turbo prince has the ability to miraculously transform into a designer tote when visiting these shores (worthy of a paragraph under 'Honours' on the Crown Princely website you think? )

He's not at all egotistical and that, if you ask me, is something that I consider heartwarming.

Prince Philip did something similar a few month back. That filmclip is most likely still accessible. It was such a hit it was perhaps worth repeating.

The only advantage of being up this late is that I get to see these pictures early rather than in the morning.

Muhler I want those sixteen bananas because I bet you poor Frederik is trying to keep his eyes open in that picture. Just think of the impossibly long trip he has just made!
