I wonder if I should feel sorry for the people at the Daily Fail as their article really showed how very different the two women are. Kate and Mary are nothing alike.

They know that.

But any article with a foreign royal being compared to a BRF member is guaranteed to attract comments.
That many of those who comment don't seem to even have read the article doesn't matter...

IMHO it just provides "clickers" with the opportunity to bash the women who are being compared.

Yesterday, Frederik participated in the sailing championship, this time without Christian as he is in school. Monday, Frederik did not participate, as regent he held the official audiences at Christiansborg Slot. The sailing takes place about an hour from Copenhagen.

"Among the guests were the mayor of Elsinore, Benedikte Kiær and HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, who is also a participant in the race with his team on the boat 'Nanoq'.."

Alas, I guess many such requests are declined.

Perhaps especially foreign requests. There has to be some sort of higher purpose for a protection I imagine.

I think it is rude for the children to be rejected like this

I understand when it is an association of adults who are asking a patronage but they are children, is it not their work to help children or handicaped persons. ?
The princess would have only send a card for the end of the year and a little help sometimes and the children would have been happy.

It is desappointing from the court of denmark

Mary is the Princess of Denmark not of Tasmania, where she is expected as her duty to be patron, an active patron of many organisations; cards at the end of the year don't cut it! It's a serious business.

Had she accepted I daresay every club in the land would be clamouring for the same!

Its sad for the team but a bit hard for the Royal Court to do much about as they are so far away. I guess they could have send a picture or something, Mary could have been asked to sign a card for example so at least it seemed to had more involvement than just a reply from their staff. If the Royal Court was really creative Mary could have made a video wishing them well and saying she would support them but couldn't be their patron.
