Mary and Frederik have arrived in Canberra - Mary is wearing her navy/cream floral Ralph Lauren dress from the Arlington visit last year with her much-repeated pink flower hat.

Greeted by our ever stylish Governor-General at Fairbairn, the Crown Prince was escorted by Her Excellency to inspect a Guard of Honour. Mary followed with the appropriate personnel asigned to her.

Frederik stopped along the guard to bow his head, Mary also paused for a moment.

Mary looks quite lovely and this particular hat suits her very well, no matter how often she may have worn it.

Where are the photos? You guys are so much better at finding such things...I am always googling and coming up empty handed...

Ok, saw the photos from the link above...I think a hat is OK for a visiting royal from overseas BUT the hat on Senator Lundy looks positively OTT and awkward considering that GG-QB - the doyenne of style - isn't even wearing one...

Ok ok excuse the bow but check out the animal print shoes...And I said Kate Lundy looked awful even without seeing the full shots and now that I seen it, she looks really bad...Red flying saucer red hat with white satin roses on the back, elastic shoes and colour blocking gone wrong...I think she was getting in the Dannebrog spirit with all the red and white but she looks ridiculous and uncomfortable...Sorry Kate but you must remember the KISS principle - Keep it simple, stupid!

Thanks to all those that have posted links and to Lady Rosie for the first hand report.
I am so enjoying this visit by Mary and Frederik, they are so naturally charming and friendly. The Danes can surely be proud of them.
Lovely to see the twins, so sweet.

Pleasure, Marfre. I was so excited and glad you all could share the moment. The twins are just adorable. AnnaNotherThing, are you able to see M & F in Melb.?

This tour is turning out to be a great hit. I'm glad Mary and Frederik are making such a great impression. They're indeed very charming (I had a chance to see them while they visited New York City earlier in the past month), and are doing their country very proud. It must also be wonderful for them to have two of their children there. Thank you to all those who are providing links and personal experiences.

Heaven forbid the G-G should wear a bow! That must most certainly mean she has no style whatsoever .lol.

Moving on..

Seeing Mary lightly mouth the words to Advance Australia Fair (our national anthem) was very sweet. Some habits die hard, but funnily enough, I doubt Mary would wish to forget or neglect such aspects of the life she lived before her marriage.

I'd imagine it's a comfort to her and remembering such words, those being ones which she'd have learnt from a very young age, would I'm sure remain close to her heart.

Frederik and Mary's public image here in Australia has been nothing but positive since their engagement. Any magazine with Mary's face on the cover is a guaranteed sell and most Australian's, those who either know of them or are infact interested, think favourably of the couple and their young family. And for the rest of her life Mary will remain, in the minds of many people here, an Australian at heart. And that of course is not meant to in any way detract from the fact she is now, for all intents and purposes Danish. It is just an example of the pack mentality that is evident throughout most cultures.

Frederik seems to be rather awestruck by the reception they are recieving though. He made comment to a journalist on a news bullletin that they are both touched and find it hard to believe that they should receive so much interest from the public. I do believe they are both genuinely humbled by such expressions of goodwill and interest.

Goodmorning.

First coverage from the Danish papers: Mary og Frederiks frokost indledt med noget usædvanlig tale - Politiken.dk

M&F attended a lunch at the Parliament in Canberra, as you probably know.
Jeanette Phillips who is aboriginee (spl?) (*) gave a cheerful speech saying: "First/just a nice word for Her Royal Highness. She has rekindled a hope for all young women in this land that there might be a charming prince somewhere out there, waiting for them".

Frederik was seated next to the PM, Julia Gillard.
Mary was seated between Minister of Trade, Craig Emerson and Minister for the Environment, Tony Burke.

(*) Is Jeanette Phillips a representative for the aboriginees or has she got another function?

I personally find it natural that Mary should sing along to the Australian antional anthem. QMII is known to sing along to the Swedish and Norwegian anthems. Not only is it natural from Mary's point of view, it's also good manners to honor your guests/hosts by singing their anthem, if you happen to know the words.
- The more cynical side of me approves of it as well. Good pr, = goodwill = money. (We really need a smug smiley )

Might be because of this?

In a luncheon speech at Australia's Parliament House, opposition leader Tony Abbott congratulated the heir to the Danish throne on his many achievements including mastery of three foreign languages, service in every arm of the Danish military and running a marathon in only three hours and 22 minutes.

Frederik thanked Abbott for his kind words but lightheartedly pointed out that the senior conservative lawmaker had sold him short.
"My personal record in marathon is three hours and six minutes," Frederik said to the amusement of hundreds of guests. "But it's not about winning. It's about succeeding."

Good evening, Muhler.

Jeanette Phillips is an indigenous elder who performs the Welcome to Country for visiting dignitaries, both Australian and foreign.

The Ngunnawal people are the traditional custodians of the land upon which Parliament and indeed, Canberra, was built.

The Welcome to Country is a ceremony, generally small in length, where traditional owners, usually elders, welcome people to their land. This is considered to be a significant form recognition and is made through a formal process. How the ceremony is conducted varies greatly on the cultural practices of each region for each region observed (observes) different practices and traditions.

Indigenous Australian(s) is generally how Australia's first peoples are addressed.

*Aborigine

Yes, absolutely. Should we not forget the unjustified criticism PM Gillard received not too long ago for not singing along to God Save the Queen during the Queen's visit...

Madame Royale is there a clip online somewhere I can watch? I'm currently stuck in a library so I can only rely on my iPad and Mac

Muhler,

Jeanette Phillips. I did some google-ing and found that she is a Ngunnawal tribe Elder .

Quote"South Australian definition of Elder.
"Elder” means an Aboriginal person who is
60 years of age and over (unless that person
is from a traditional community and is still
living in that traditional community, in
which case no age restriction is to apply),
and who is regarded as an Elder within the
Aboriginal community to knowledge,
authority or standing (AARD)"unquote

So from my lay-persons understanding, an Elder is a respected, generally older person in the Aboriginal tribe/community. These days the Aboriginal history and persons are quite rightly included in government/official ceremonies.

I hope that helps. Also I wanted to explain to those outside of Australia, that our Governor General (G.G.) is our Monarch's representative here. They have two official residences- Admiralty House, north of the Harbour Bridge in Kirribilli,Sydney and Government House in Yarralumla, Canberra.

You may want to try accessing news websites, American Dane. I happened to be watching the afternoon bulletin in my office which is why I caught it.

The footage of Mary mouthing the words is fairly quick, but charming nonetheless.

Thanks Lady Rosie & Madame Royale

I love trivia so please keep them coming.
What is obvious or too trivial for Australians may not be so for, well, the rest of us.
So by all means do post details, background info and trivia.
We are never too old to learn something new.

And speaking of trivia. I noticed in a clip that Frederik (naturally) nodded to the Australian flag, when inspecting the honour guard.
I put naturally in parentesis because it's not used everywhere. If you look at QMII the next time she is inspecting an honour guard, you will notice that she always stop for a brief moment to pay her respect to the flag, whether that is Dannebrog, a foreign flag or a regimental colour.
By the way the very detailed and pretty strickt Danish flag-law makes it a criminal offense to degrade the flag of a foreign country.

You're quite welcome

Yes I noted that too, Muhler. I especially noticed this at the wedding of the Crown Princess of Sweden. Most Scandinavian royals appeared to stop where the flagsman stood and bowed their heads or payed some sort of acknowledgement. A truly lovely gesture I think and an observance which is as you stated, not everywhere seen.
