Prince Frederik makes his watermark
By AMANDA LULHAM

February 22, 2005

VISITING Danish Crown Prince Frederik was yesterday marching with a military tattoo of a different kind.

After enjoying a day's sailing aboard Nanoq, the Prince returned to the Cruising Yacht Club looking refreshed and relaxed in shorts and a T-shirt.

He'd spent several hours putting the Danish boat through its paces around Rushcutters Bay and outside the Heads.

Keen observers spotted one of the Prince's two tattoos -- of a shark -- on his right leg.

The shark tattoo is believed to be the insignia of a Danish elite forces unit.

But the Prince's other tattoo, bearing his nickname Pingo, on his left arm, was not on public display.

Prince Frederik joined the army in 1986, enlisting as a lowly private in the Royal Life Guards instead of being commissioned as an officer.

The Prince will compete in the Farr 40 world titles off Sydney Heads against some of the world's best sailors.

For the championships, and the pre-world regatta which starts on Thursday, he will have a crew of eight on Nanoq (Danish for polar bear).

They include Anders Myralf, a well-known sailor whose brother Stefan steered Nokia to her race record victory in the 1999 Sydney to Hobart.

Princess Mary is due to arrive in Sydney on Thursday.

I found another photo. Sorry, it's only small. From The Courier Mail: http://www.thecouriermail.news.com.a...55E953,00.html

Shirtless Crown Prince!

On last night's TV news we had extensive coverage of Frederik practicing his yachting, with his shirt off.

Shame I don't have any photos to share.

(ha, ha)

Crown Prince Eats Pizza!

To keep everyone up to date with what is happening on the Grand Tour of Australia (well, just Sydney so far), here is the latest...

"After a hard day's sailing Sydney Harbour in his luxury yacht, Crown Prince Frederik spent his second night in Sydney taking his crew to a celebrity pizza joint in Kings Cross.

A casual Prince ate pizza and swordfish, caesar salad and focaccia washed down with Asahi Japanese beer."

Although not mentioned in this news snippet, I assume he kept his shirt on.

Princess Mary arrives for tour
05:45 AEDT Fri Feb 25 2005



Australian real estate agent turned Danish princess Mary Donaldson arrives in Sydney on Friday for her first official tour to her home country as Scandinavian royalty.

With her husband Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary starts a hectic 13-date tour in Sydney at the weekend which ends in Hobart on March 11.

She is expected to arrive early Friday and her first official engagement is on Sunday. So she could revisit the Sydney pub which famously sparked her fairytale romance - if she wants.

Frederik arrived in Sydney earlier this week and has spent his time soaking up the Australian sun and preparing for an international yachting regatta.

The royal couple will attend state dinners in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Hobart and a reception hosted by Prime Minister John Howard in Parliament House before spending some private time with Mary's family.

Charity dinners in honour of the couple have already sold out and Sydney socialites are scrambling for spots at the Australian Red Cross 90th anniversary gala dinner on March 2 or the Victor Chang ball on March 4.

The Crown Prince's court is keeping a tight rein on the trip and the couple has only given carefully controlled pre-tour interviews to two Australian press organisations handpicked by Christian VIII's Palace.

They will hold one media conference in Australia, in Mary's home town of Hobart on March 11, the final day of the tour.

Some more photos from Getty Images. The woman that Frederik is talking to in photo one, and the woman in the last photo, is Katherine Keating, the daughter of our former Prime Minister, Paul Keating. "Katherine will be shipmates with the Crown Prince's wife Princess Mary in an upcoming yacht race."

Crown Prince's Strong Peformances!

today's instalment...

"WINNING WAYS PUT HIS COMPETITORS ON ALERT

Crown Prince Frederik has proved he'll be a contender at next week's Farr 40 world championships, with strong performances off Sydney Heads yesterday.

Sailing his yacht Nanoq with a crew of eight fellow Danes, the Prince raced to two top-15 placings on the opening day of the pre-world championships.

The Prince has won hearts with his friendly disposition and lack of airs in sailing circles since his arrival in Australia and has spent most days training or racing his yacht in preparation for next week's titles.

On Sunday he will attempt to level the score with his wife in a match-racing challenge on Sydney Harbour.

Last night Prince Frederik and eight members of his entourage dined at Hugo's restaurant at Bondi.

He appeared to be in a relaxed mood, joking with his friends before leaving at 10.30pm."
.....................

Crown Princess Mary arrives in Sydney in about an hour, so things should start to get interesting.

Princess Mary arrives home

By Nicolette Burke
26-02-2005
From: The Daily Telegraph


SHE left Australia as plain Mary Donaldson, but last night the former real estate agent returned to her homeland a princess.

Australia's own royal arrived home for the first time since her wedding to be reunited with her Prince Frederik. The Crown Princess, who has quickly gained a reputation as a fashion icon, looked rested and radiant in a cream-coloured jacket, black trousers, floral scarf, and white leather loafers.

Her trademark gracious smile was evident soon after she arrived at 9.20pm. She spent about 20 minutes moving through Customs before emerging briefly into the airport's media centre where she was greeted by a throng of photographers - and a few curious travellers.

"It's lovely to be back in Australia," she said.

She stopped briefly to greet a family from Bexley North who had waited for hours at the airport to see their favourite princess.

Little Emilia Shelston was the first to greet her hero, handing the Princess a bouquet of flowers.

Afterwards, she said she thought the Princess was "very pretty".

"She said 'Thanks for coming and thank you for giving me the flowers'," Emilia told The Daily Telegraph.

Princess Mary said she was pleased with the "very warm" reception.

Security had been heightened for the arrival. Australian Protective Service officers, and police with sniffer dogs, patrolled the international terminal.

Backpackers, airport staff and locals at the airport on a late night Krispy Kreme doughnut run, watched the Crown Princess arrive, where she was greeted by dignitaries, including an aide-de-camp to the Governor-General Major-General Mike Jeffery.

Athina Shelston and her daughters Emilia, 7, and Anna, 11, were waiting to welcome the royals.

"I've been following them ever since the wedding. We heard they were arriving, and just thought we'd turn up on the off chance we'd see them," Mrs Shelston said.

"I think she's just gorgeous. And he won me over when he cried at the wedding. It's such a lovely story for a local girl."

Princess Mary was given a police escort to accompany her to the waiting arms of her Prince, who was waiting for her at the Shangri-La hotel at The Rocks.

The Princess's arrival in Sydney comes almost a week after His Royal Highness of Denmark, Crown Prince Frederik, flew into town where he's been staying and preparing for Farr 40 world titles, to be sailed off Sydney next week.

The royal couple's tour will take in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and finally, Hobart.

The royal couple will attend charity balls and state dinners as well as a reception hosted by Prime Minister John Howard.

Their first official duty will be to challenge each other in an Australia v Denmark yacht race on Sunday.

The first of several booked-out gala charity events, the $1000-a-head Red Cross 90th Anniversary Gala, is on Wednesday night where Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John and Alex Lloyd will entertain guests.

Princess Mary arrives for national tour

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has arrived in Australia for her first royal tour in her home country.

The former Mary Donaldson, who was born in Tasmania, flew into Sydney Airport on Friday night to join her husband Crown Prince Frederik for a 13 day tour which officially starts on Sunday.

The royal couple's tour will take in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and finally, Mary's home town of Hobart.

The couple, who were married in a lavish ceremony in Copenhagen last May, will attend charity balls and state dinners as well as a reception hosted by Prime Minister John Howard.

Frederik arrived in Sydney earlier this week and has spent his time soaking up the Australian sun and preparing for an international yachting regatta.

The tour ends with a press conference in Hobart on March 11.

Mary arrived at about 10pm (AEDT) at Sydney International Airport.

She looked rested and radiant in a cream-coloured jacket, black trousers, a floral scarf, and white leather loafers.

Mary received a bouquet of flowers from a little girl who came to meet the princess before being whisked away.

She was officially greeted by Ted Weinberg from the Australian Navy, who was representing Governor-General Michael Jeffery.

He told reporters Mary seemed in good spirits before she emerged.

She had been overheard speaking a few words of Danish, but didn't take any questions from media, and smiled as she accepted the flowers.

It's a lovely jacket, but I hope she didn't wear it outside. It was extremely hot yesterday. Hmm, I don't know what to say about the shoes. Very interesting!
