From today: www.polfoto.dk Polfoto 26-02-2005 Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, right, and his Australian wife Princess Mary smile at the Cruising Yacht Club in Sydney, Saturday, February 26, 2005. The couple officially begin their visit Sunday with a yacht race against each other before attending various events on their 13 day visit, including a reception hosted by Prime Minister John Howard, celebrations to mark the bicentennial of the birth of Denmark's famed storyteller Hans Christian Andersen, Danish community events, a hospital visit and state dinners.

Princess Mary enjoys Sydney shopping
17:45 AEDT Sat Feb 26 2005



Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has marked the first day of her return to Australia with a spot of shopping, while her other half, Crown Prince Frederik, spent the day sailing on Sydney Harbour.

The Tasmanian princess, who flew into Sydney on Friday night, was believed to have headed out for some retail therapy with best friend and bridesmaid Amber Petty, while husband Crown Prince Frederik spent the day on-board yacht Nanoq at Rushcutters Bay.

Frederik, who arrived in Australia earlier this week, will on Sunday compete in the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship.

Once back on land, he was greeted by his wife at the Rushcutters Bay Cruising Yacht Club.

Wearing a pink knee-length pencil skirt and summery floral top with heels, and decked out in sunglasses and a cap, Mary looked relaxed and casual as she strolled alongside Frederik.

The prince, who has spent the past few days lapping up the Australian sun, was wearing a t-shirt and board shorts.

The couple spent about 45 minutes at the club drinking and talking to people before leaving.

Sunday is the official start of the couple's royal tour, which 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.

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

Princess Mary of Denmark received a rapturous welcome from well-wishers as she arrived in Sydney on Friday. The stylish Australian who was making her first trip Down Under since becoming a European royal, looked radiant in a cream coloured coat and floral scarf as she accepted a bouquet of flowers from a young admirer.

The build-up of Mary mania has hit a fever pitch in the weeks leading up to her arrival, with her return generating public interest similar to that which surrounded Princess Diana at the height of her popularity. The fashionable royal has graced the covers of every major magazine and newspaper and been the dominant topic of conversation across the nation.

Mary was originally due to arrive on Sunday, but moved her trip forward to give her and Frederik a day to themselves before their official engagements begin on Sunday. The crown prince arrived in Sydney earlier this week and has spent his time soaking up the warm Australian sun while preparing for an international yachting regatta.

The royal couple's first official duty will be to challenge each other in an Australia versus Denmark yacht race in the harbour on Sunday.

The hectic 13-day tour of Oz wraps up in Mary's hometown of Hobart on March 11. The Danish royals will attend state and charity dinners in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne plus a special reception hosted by Prime Minister John Howard in Parliament House, before spending some private time with Mary's family.

I don't like her outfit; or I should say I like all the pieces separately but not together. I definitely don't like the two horizontal lines she has created (a belt around her hips and a ribbon beneath her breasts) which cuts her proportions strangely. Pretty shoes, but too formal for a walk on a dock, or for the baseball cap. Skirt is a pretty color and cut, but seems too formal for the summery top. The baseball cap doesn't match anything. Nice earrings, with stones picking up colors from the rest of the outfit. Her hair looks stringy under the baseball cap (but good without the cap). All in all, she's done better.

I really like what Mary wore, and she looked pretty. Mary was wearing 'formal' clothes because she was having lunch at a harbour-side restaurant, and she can hardly turn up in jeans and 'flip-flops'; she would not be allowed in. Many of the aforementioned restaurants have entranceways on piers, as they are on the water, hence the reason why she may have been walking there, and also why she had good shoes on. It isn't as if she was climbing around dirty boats all day and needed to wear something more appropriate, although, I didn't like that cap with it. It looked really out of place.

Oh, I have been looking for the video they had on the news last night, but they haven't put it on their website yet. :(

Anybody see this article from a few days ago. Such shoddy journalism. Not to mention an insult to HRH:

AAP

Australia's republicans might want to head overseas for a little while as the country plays host to the heirs to three thrones over the next few weeks.

Denmark's Hobart-born Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik will be popular visitors on their first trip to Australia since their wedding last year, while Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria will be little more than a curiosity.

But the newly engaged Prince of Wales will spark debate as he tours Australia without fiancee Camilla Parker Bowles on his last official overseas trip before their April 8 wedding.

Prince Charles arrives in Perth on Monday after a brief stopover in tsunami-ravaged Sri Lanka for his 14th visit to Australia, and the first since a protester fired a starter's gun and lunged at him in Sydney in 1994.

The six-day trip will reportedly cost the Australian tax payer $1 million, a figure which his office disputes as exaggerated and "made up".

Whatever the bill comes to, however, it will still provoke debate about the value of royal trips, especially as republicans have revived their campaign since the announcement of the prince's engagement this month.

Prince Charles' office at Clarence House also rejected reports he invited himself to Australia.

"The prince certainly did not invite himself, it has been a longstanding invitation from the Australian government," said a Clarence House spokesman.

While his visit may divide opinion in Australia, Prince Charles leaves behind intense debate in the UK over the constitutional questions surrounding his wedding to Parker Bowles.

After Perth, the prince will visit Alice Springs, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra before flying to New Zealand on March 5.

March 4 will be a memorable day for royal watchers in Sydney with Charles in town on the same day as Mary and Frederik - although their paths are not expected to cross.

Staff at Government House will be kept busy by both sets of royals, hosting a reception for Charles the day after they hold a state dinner for Mary and Frederik.

The Danish royals will also share Melbourne with their Scandinavian neighbour, Crown Princess Victoria, on March 10.

While the Danes' next king and queen are meeting Victorian premier Steve Bracks, the 25-year-old heir to Sweden's throne will attend the Swedish Style Gala at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Australia's home grown princess and her husband open their three-week official tour on Sunday with the prince seeking revenge in a yacht race on Sydney Harbour against America's Cup winning skipper John Bertrand.

Bertrand and the crown princess combined to beat Frederik's crew in a race on Copenhagen Harbour during pre-wedding celebrations in May last year.

The Glucksborgs will spend a week in Sydney where they will attend charity dinners for the Red Cross, the Victor Chang Cardiac Institute and the Australian Cancer Council.

But Danish officials said the couple would not pay a nostalgic visit to the Slip Inn, the pub where they met during the 2000 Olympics.

Their trip is the biggest tour undertaken by a Danish royal in modern times and is considered of the utmost political importance in Denmark, as well as personally for the former Mary Donaldson.

They will attend state dinners in Sydney, Canberra and Hobart and a reception hosted by prime minister John Howard in Parliament House.

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 which were hand picked by Christian VIII's Palace.

They will hold one media conference in Australia, in Mary's home town Hobart on March 11, the final official day of the tour before they have private time to visit her family.

Oh yes, I read that this morning. I can see it from the Republicans point of view. $1 million dollars, or whatever the figure will come to, is a lot of money to come out of tax payers’ money, just for a royal visit. Why should their money be used to pay for a visit that they don’t even want? Anyway, I wonder how the yacht race went earlier. Hopefully there will be some good photos.

More pics from Saturday...

Check out the purse, in Pic #3, its nice but doesn't go with the whole ensemble. In fact, I found the whole look to be somewhat confused, some pieces were formal like the skirt and shoes and some pieces casual like the cap, handbag and the top.

She certainly seems fond of caps that she can pull down in her face... I understood it when she was trying to protect her privacy before she got engaged, but after the marriage she is a public person. I also might understand it if she wore it in Denmark when she was trying to be a private person, but this is an official visit...

Mary wasn't wearing the hat for the whole day... not even for most of the day. What happened was (well I'm pretty sure this is what happened) she went "shopping" with Amber Petty, had lunch at a restaurant, got "rescued" by old friend Hamish Cambell (her and Amber got besieged by photographers so they requested Hamish to pick them up in the boat he was in) and then they went to the yacht club to meet up with Fred who was doing some sailing). Anyway, it was only after she met up with Frederik that she started wearing a cap.... I think she actually took Frederik's hat and started wearing it.

It's kind of sweet actually... its like at school when you take your boyfriend's school tie and start wearing it, hehehe....
