I of course don't know, but I'd imagine John and Susan to be in Denmark looking after Christian and Isabella atm, and will fly out together when the official program has concluded.

Naturally, Vincent and Josephine needed to accompany their parents and are well cared for by the appropriate members of staff whilst Frederik and Mary undertake their official engagements.

* Also, the barge used by Frederik and Mary on Sydney Harbour is the same barge which was used by Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh in Canberra last month.

Thank you so much for your first hand report and pictures. It means so much more to report the "real" scene.

Your mention of Frederik reminds me of my "spotting" of M&F in NYC last month. I was really just waiting to see Mary and was unprepared at how Frederik really impressed me more with his natural charm and charisma, ease and good looks of course.
Please, Aussies, keep the reports coming

Australsk hospital ændrer navn til ære for kronprinsesse Mary - Politiken.dk

Hospital opkaldes efter Mary - TV 2 Nyhederne

Two articles about Mary revealing the new name for Westmeade Cancer Care Centre, which is now Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre Westmead.

The cancer centre has for a number of year cooperated closely with Danish cancer specialists and in my eyes at least the Australian approach to treating cancer is superiour to the Danish approach, which is more traditional.
This hospital treats 5.000 patients a year and the name was kept a secret until the unveiling.

Article from a Danish medical journal: Kronprinsesse Mary navngiver australsk kræfthospital - Dagens Medicin Emphasizing that Danish doctors can now get their specialist training at Westmead. - The cooperation is especially between Westmead and Skejby Sygehus. Which is rapidly expanding these years, and which has become the state hospital of western Denmark, easily rivalling Rigshospitalet. That means we can expect to see quite a few Australian doctors in Aarhus in the years to come, as well as Australian medical students on exchange to Aarhus University. - They can enjoy the Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions while they are in Aarhus.
And the weather? Well, it remains to be seen how much Aussies will appreciate a foggy, rainy, dark November. When the cold seeps into their bones.....
Those who survive November without going stircrazy will find December cosy.
- But then, that's why the gods invented schnapps and bitters.
(Still wanna trade, American Dane?)

Again, thank you for all the clips, personal impressions and pictures.

Madame Royale, you are most kind. Thanks.

I was delighted that the Westmeade cancer care centre was named in honour of the Crown Princess. A truly fitting re-naming and one I'm sure means a great deal to Mary.

And I think you're right Muhler, in that Australia is largely recognised as a world leading researcher for cancer. State of the art technologies, equipment and studies are consistently being explored, developed and implemented across the board, and as such, cancer patients from around the world are often sent to Australia due to the reputation of our medical professionals and the research and treatment facilities which are available. And naturally, working with outher nations to build a comprehensive offensive towards this disease goes without saying.

Indeed living in a country where an estimated 1 in every 2 Australian's will be diagnosed with some form of cancer by the age of 85 means that this disease is one that requires the steadfast commitment of both federal and state government bodies, philanthropic funding and charity. And fortunately enough, being the wealthy country that it is, this is therefore made possible.

It's quite shocking to note, but around 114,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in Australia last year.

Princess Mary surprises Nine News reporter

Princess Mary surprises Nine News reporter

Princess Mary made a surprise interruption to coverage of the royal visit this afternoon in Sydney.
Nine News reporter Sarah Harris was doing a piece to camera about it being "as close as the public will get to the royal family" when the Australian-born princess tapped her on the shoulder.
Harris was left stunned as she was told: "No, it isn't actually".
The veteran royal watcher said it was a surreal experience.
"I've covered the royal visits of Prince William and the Queen, but I’ve never had anything like this happen," she said.

I may be mistaken, but didn't the Crown Princess wear this dress to an official dinner given for either the Vietnamese or South Korean Prime Minister/Presdient (?) when visiting Denmark some two years ago?

Here is a wonderful example of why the media should always be taken with a very large grain of salt! Thank you Crown Princess for the timely reminder!

Article from BT with three good pics of Mary cooking:
Mary i køkken-hopla hos verdens bedste kok - Royale - BT.dk


TV2 news at 19.00 also had a segment about M&F today, with a lot of clips from the days events. The emphasis today was about the pretty massive Danish commercial offensive to Australia.
Frederik talked a bit about that.

That segment should be online in a couple of hours. If so I'll edit this post.
If someone else should post that clip, cool!
In which case I - (or someone else? You for example?) - may write a bit about what Frederik was saying.

ADDED: Here it is: http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/video/index/id/45896206/

That includes a brief interview with a flowergirl, who is considering a career as a princess.

at 01:25 Frederik explains that this might be the right time for a commercial push towards Australia. And that it's advantageous to be a large group, who can brand DK as a strong country which has know how in new fields. (*)

Australia is interesting as a market because there is still an, albeit modest, economic growth there, in contrast to Europe.
Frederik is heard saying that he is proud that DK as a country has such a strong position (within these fields). He adds that the knowledge of DK in Australia by now is very big. There is of course a reason for that, he smiles. (**)

(*) Alternative energy (DK is expected to have 50 % of its energy consumption covered by primarily windmills in 2030 and 100 % by 2050), recycling, energy saving products and other environmentally sound initiatives. There is serious money in that! At present about 10 % of DK's export are in these fields and rising.

(**) And that is of course one of the primary jobs of royals, certainly within the past 60-100 years. - To kick down the door and charm everyone around, create awareness and if at all possible a positive atmosphere, for the businessmen to create contacts in.
So far I'd say Mary in particular, but also the continuing saga of her family has been instrumental in accomplishing that. It's my impression that in the minds of the average Australians the view of the DRF and Denmark is primarily positive. That alone is worth a lot of money.
Just as the view of Australia and the Australians is very positive here in DK.

They are in Canberra today and by the looks of the schedule it is only a 'day trip' (not a sleepover) because there is no evening dinner/event...My bet is J&V (and luggage) will go on a separate flight with nannies ahead to Melbourne, F&M will fly to Canberra, do their thing and after their last event at 4.30pm, they will fly on to Melbourne...meet the twins at the hotel room, have a sleep and do the Melbourne circuit...Imagine the logistics for this trip...PHEW!

Recall the Crown Princess' words to the effect that her success is based on organisation! Every detail of such a trip must be mapped out or sometimes hammered out months in advance!
