Put Huggies in a bag? I doubt the chemist would have a bag big enough to fit two packs of Huggies into to give Mary if she had asked for one! I have never seen someone put Huggies into a plastic bag - and I work in the nursery department of the local Target store!

But in Australia this is a total non story, nothing! Here's an example from the Australian media The Daily Telegraph ( a Sydney paper) and a Murdoch one no less! It couldn't be more positive, we were also regaled on breakfast TV by the Editor in Chief of Australia's largest magazine publishing house ( not just women's magazines) going on how wonderful Mary was etc etc.

The DRF spokesperson Lene Balleby actually did state that as it wasn't an official visit to Australia the Danes were paying all the expenses, including media liason. Credit here to Trine Villeman's article for Se og hoer on Aug 28th Lene Balleby stated the "the court is working with Nina Fudala on press liason in connection with the crown princess's official activities during their stay." Thats it.

I also wouldn't put money on the fact that Nina Fudala was actually in Tasmania during Mary's stay there. In the official engagements in Melbourne and Sydney Nina Fudala can be seen in the photos interacting with the media, as far as I've been able to see there's no sight of her in Tasmania despite the claim she 'lined up the Australian media in the wildlife park'

Nappy-gate and the Danish Embassy

Somebody asked about verification that the Royal Danish Embassy in Canberra (?) is now involved in the socalled "nappy-gate":

The story was published on the website of the republican tabloid
Ekstra-Bladet on Wednesday evening, l.t. It was written by DRF.
bashing Jan Körner, who has made a living out of scrutinizing the
Royal Danish House and putting the royals in a bad light, whenever possible.

In the article DRF press officer Lene Balleby confirms that the royal
court has asked the Danish Embassy to "look into the matter", and that
"CP Mary never agreed to be an ad-column/billboard".

There's normally every reason to take Ekstra-Bladets royalty reports
with a grain of salt, but this time it looks as if it is holding water.

At the bottomline I'm pleased that this is a non-story in Oz. For
future reference however, maybe CP Mary should send someone
else for nappies whenever in Hobart!

Yes I have been reading if they pose for some photos why not let BB enter and pose for them too??? This I cannot understand sorry... If they let other press media take some photos why not let BB also??????? If they want some privacy they didn't have allowed the press to enter the Park, and if they enter with no authorization where are the bodyguards?????? Wasn't that a photocall??

So maybe it was more reasonable to ask someone to get the nappies for her. She should know by the moment she appears with to nappies on her hand a discussion will be on the way..for this...for that...and she should avoid that by all means she has

Well, if CP Mary wants to do a nappy-run, of course, she should do it. However, turning it into a media-event by having one's PR-person tipping off the media - which is what happened, see the link I posted in a previous post - has backfired big time. The cheeky people at Huggeis told me in an email that the add is a one off, but boy, did the get a lot of publicity of this stunt!I hope the palace asks for a fee for one of CP Mary's charities!

As several posters living in Australia has written - it is an non-issue in Australia. As someone living in DK I can tell you - it is a complet non-issue in Danmark as well. The only place this has become an issue is on this thread - and IMO it has only become such an issue, becauce you and a few more posters are blowing this "non-issue thing" so far out of proportions that it has reached a point of being ridiculous!!!

The whole nappy thing was certainly not to promote a certain nappy brand.
It was just to show the people in Denmark & Australia: I am low-key and down to earth , I buy nappies myself ...
End of story.

Well the Australian sense of humour and irreverence ( the country of the larrikin) is precisely why there is no controversy here over the Huggies ad. It's a non story because most Australians would be like me, I was flicking through a woman's magazine on Monday and saw the print version of the ad, I laughed out loud and thought "cheeky sods!" In reference to the Huggies marketing people, it's funny cheeky ad where the larrikin Australians display their sense of irreverence. ( it's a cultural thing )

Reminds one a bit about how certain journalists used the kate Middleton-bashing on internet forums to back up their own non-story. I bet we will hear that at least one Danish journalist will report about "Nappygate" and the internet forums....

If Princess Isabella jacket is a fake fur jacket (wicht I think it isn't) We have seen Mary wearing other fur jackets in many other ocassions and I'am 100% SURE THEY ARE REAL FUR, and for someone who love animals like she inted to be this is a tottaly contradition, fashion speaks louder than other mucht more important issues.

The general question is: shoulnd't the Royal Family, or Mary and Fred in particular, be a role model in every aspect, even when it comes to the question of wearing fur?
As a member of a Royal family you make a statement with what you do. That would also include: having furniture made of tropical wood, wearing clothes that was made with childrens work etc., wearing diamonds that were produced by people living in slavery ( which happens nowadays). If you are wealthy and have access to all kinds of information plus you do charity worldwide, you must have a social conscience and be aware of what is happening in the world around you.
IMo wearing fur is not acceptable for a role model of the 21st century and someone who knows the facts of life.

I'm sorry, but it appears as if your theory, and the link that was used to support it, of this PR person helping out with the Tasmanian visit, and "tipping" off the media, has been debunked by the DRF themselves, as well as other published and reliable sources.
