Yes, I know.
But I don't think the couple "revealed" that,
the journalists were probably following them and found it out.

So that newspaper article which claimed that they are staying in the Government house was wrong.

The media most likely followed them from the airport, or at best, had people ready to front up at Jane's home.

And whether or not the family is staying at Janes home is pure speculation on the media's behalf. There's a possibility they shall and there is also a possibility they shall not

Mary had a little lunch- this is what her neighbours had to say:

Neighbours were stunned.

One, Romilda Amorosa, said she was so excited when Princess Mary arrived she forgot to put bicarb soda in her banana cake.
"She's beautiful,'' she said. "She looks kind and gentle and beautiful.''

Ms Amorosa watched in bemusement as the media contingent grew in front of her home.
"She deserves every bit of it (attention),'' she said. "We're proud of her because she's Tasmanian.''

Well, if they are only staying at the house untill Friday, I guess it is possible. They are expected to stay in the area, atleast untill the galathea expedition arives in Hobart on December 7th. Atleast acording to the Danish media reports...

Exclamation Mary's Family

I think the media should leave Mary & Frederick alone. Why not check out the airport as I think Mary's father & stepmother will fly in by Friday so that all the family can be together. They have scheduled a photosession and then please let them get on with their family holiday.
With only a week together surely they can be left in peace to enjoy Christian who could well be another 2 years older before her family will get to see him again.

I agree; it's a pity if their time with Mary's family is more or less spoilt by intrusive media.
QMII and prince Henrik schedules a photo session each year when they holiday in France - in exchange for having some undisturbed time. It seems to work and have done so for many many years - would be nice if the same would work for F&M and not least Christian.

Why didn't Fred open the door? He is still the royal that gave Mary her status. No journalist would have knocked on the door if it was not for Mary's marriage to Frederick. He should have been the one stating to anyone bothering them that this is a private holiday and thanks for your interest but we will not answer any questions.

I think its because its mary home town , so that's why she is doing it , to give a feeling of being chilled out . if fred came to the door it might be more formal ????

Probably Fred is at the grocery shop buying some groceries.

Part of article in The Age Australia

Quote:
After his wife's arrival, the dashing prince surprised shoppers at a West Hobart delicatessen before returning to Ms Stephens' home with bags of groceries.

why have they been so open about their visit if it is intended to be a private one?

I think and hope Mary will be able to relax and have great time with her family. But as someone said, perhaps it would be a goodf idea to do some sort of photoshoot to satisfy the press!

Is she just taking a mere visit to her homeland, or is there some kind of a holiday she might like to share with her family there?

The first pictures are really nice! Christian looks so adorable! The pictures of Frederik welcoming Mary is so cute!
So, the first trip of Lille Christian and the new Baby ( ) to their mother's home country! So nice..

I think it is to be expected that thre is going to be an interest in this trip, after all Mary hasn't been back to Australia in a couple of years, however i do hope that after the photo op on Friday, that the family will be left alone to enjoy their holiday. It is no secret that they are here and where they are staying, so why should they hide or not open the door. That is just silly.
Mary does look beautiful and they look like any other happy family. I am always so proud that she was an Australian.
