Thank you everyone for posting all the wonderful photos. I was watching on the news a little interview with a Danish journalist, and he enjoyed seeing the Kangaroos today. Mary looked a little scared when one of them came bounding a little too close, but that's understandable. :P

Princess charms another Mary
Princess Mary receives a posy of flowers in Canberra yesterday.





TINY Mary Mongan waited two hours in the hot sun to get a glimpse of her royal namesake.

But the wait was worth it.

Crown Princess Mary saw the two-year-old among thousands of well-wishers who turned out at the Australian War Memorial.

As the Princess bent down, the toddler handed over two pink roses wrapped in silver foil and quietly spoke her name.

“What a beautiful name,” Princess Mary exclaimed, to the little girls delight.

Little Mary was among about 2000 people who turned out to welcome the Princess and Prince Frederik, to Canberra as they began the second leg of their Australian visit.

It had been a more sombre mood inside the memorial, where the couple laid a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Earlier, Princess Mary shook hands with many well-wishers and collected armfuls of bouquets.

She also collected a bouquet of a more tasty kind, made out of her favourite lollies, Fruit Tingles, which are hard to find in Denmark.

Mary mania
By HEATHER LOW CHOY

THOUSANDS of people are expected to flood Hobart city streets tomorrow to welcome Tasmanian-born royal Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

The former Taroona schoolgirl, who wed the heir to Europe's oldest kingdom last May, arrives at Hobart Airport at 4pm.

It will be her first visit home since marrying Prince Frederik.

Crowds are expected to more than match the the royal couple's Sydney appearances, which drew upwards of a thousand people.

Many Tasmanians are already succumbing to Mary mania.

Lipscombe Larder proprietor John Fiotakis has his staff baking authentic Danish breads and pastries.

Demand has already gone through the roof, with the Sandy Bay gourmet deli selling hundreds a day.

Cafes looking to get in to the spirit of the visit are among his biggest customers, he said.

The royal couple's taxpayer-funded official visit is to be a rapid-fire meet-and-greet mission lasting only slightly more than a day.

After their official business concludes on Friday evening with a charity ball, they will remain in the state for a private holiday with Princess Mary's family.

But first the Danish royals will plunge headlong into their hectic schedule of official engagements -- after being greeted at the airport tomorrow by a welcome crew including Tasmania's Governor, Premier and schoolchildren.

Once the couple arrives in downtown Hobart there will be many opportunities for "Mary watching", with barricaded public viewing areas in place.

Police have asked people seeking an early glimpse of the royals to not travel beyond Holyman Ave, or helicopter company Rotor-Lift's premises, at Hobart Airport.

It will be first-come, first-served for those looking to snare a prime position to see Princess Mary.

But be warned: Children turning up in the hope of being able to present the Princess with a bouquet will be disappointed.

"That's not going to happen," was the word from a royal tour staffer.

The Princess is to receive flowers from children but the presentations will not be spontaneous.

Royal watching will not be confined to those venues hosting the couple.

Their motorcade will take to city streets both tomorrow and Friday, although tomorrow's route is far longer.

Tomorrow afternoon, after the Princess opens a porcelain exhibition at the University of Tasmania's School of Art on Hunter St, the Danish royals' cars will make their way along the waterfront.

With the couple arriving at the university's Plimsoll Gallery at 4.40pm, it is expected their motorcade will leave shortly after 5pm.

It will travel across the bridges on Victoria and Constitution Docks to Salamanca Place.

The cars will then turn onto Davey St and do a circuit of city streets before going to Government House, where the couple are to spend the night.

Police encouraged people to assume vantage points along the waterfront section of the route and assured motorists any traffic delays would be minimal.

Acting Inspector David Richardson said the motorcade would be ushered through the city with a "green-light corridor".

Motorists could expect to be delayed for little more than a minute, with traffic police stationed at all intersections to ensure public safety.

Tomorrow evening the couple will be guests of honour at an official dinner to be hosted by Governor William Cox and his wife Jocelyn.

Friday morning will see them hold court at two press conferences in the ballroom at Government House -- one for Australian journalists, the other to be conducted in Prince Frederik's native tongue for the Danish media.

The royals will then plant a tree in the grounds of Government House and visit the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery before taking a helicopter to Port Arthur.

Rod Wallis, from the Premier's Protocol Office, said the historic site had discounted admission prices for the day to aid members of the public keen to see Princess Mary.

After a carefully choreographed walk around Port Arthur, the royal couple will travel by car back to Hobart, arriving at Government House mid afternoon.

Their next engagement will be a 4.30pm state reception at Wrest Point.

The royals will return to Wrest Point at 8.15pm on Friday night for Save the Children's "Chocolate Lovers" charity ball.

Melbourne crowds cheer royal couple

By Rachel Kleinman
March 10, 2005 - 11:25AM

Prince Frederik and Princess Mary pose with Lynne and John Landy, Governor of Victoria, at Government House.

The Age welcomes submissions of photographs from readers of the visit of Denmark's Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik. Email JPGs with your name and a clear caption to this address and we may publish them at theage.com.au.

Several thousand Victorians gathered today in Melbourne's Federation Square for the arrival of the Danish royal couple currently touring Australia.

Tasmanian-born Crown Princess Mary and husband Crown Prince Frederick arrived in the square around 11.10am this morning after a private meeting with Victorian Governor John Landy and his wife.

Among the cheeering well wishers were a group of about 50 schoolchildren given the day off from the Danish school in Toorak.

The royals along with Victorian Steve Bracks are inaugurating a live videolink from Federation Square to Copenhagen's Radhusspladsen (City Hall Square).

After their duties at Federation Square the royal couple will take a boat cruise on the Yarra River before attending a midday state reception at Sumac.

Late this afternoon, Princess Mary and Prince Frederik will make their first official visit to the Princess' home state of Tasmania.

At 4pm, the couple will touch down at Hobart Airport, where they will be greeted by Premier Paul Lennon, Governor William Cox, and schoolchildren before their motorcade weaves through the Salamanca waterfront precinct.

Police expect 5,000 well-wishers to flock to the centre of Hobart to greet the royal couple.

The Danish flag will fly above Parliament House, as it did when the couple married last year.

Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria is also visiting Melbourne today for a six-day visit as patron of a Swedish trade, culture and tourism showcase.

Mary looks wonderful as usual. I like the hat with the little feather and the jacket quite a lot, and, ofcourse the dress from the Copenhagen Fashion Show is a classic. The only qualm I have with the whole ensemble is the length of the jacket compared to the dress. I just feel that the jacket should be longer or at least up to the hem of the dress underneath.

From dr.dk

Australierne vil blive mindet om det danske kronprinspar, også efter at parret har forladt landet.

I anledning af kronprins Frederik og kronprinsesse Marys første officielle besøg i kronprinsessens hjemland har det australske postvæsen nemlig fået trykt frimærker med billeder af parret.

Frimærkearket er en kombination af 10 flotte 50 cents frimærker, der viser Australiens placering på verdenskortet og billeder af kronprinsparret.

Billederne er nøje udvalgt og viser foruden det officielle bryllupsbillede også kronprins Frederik og Marys første tid som ægtepar - både i officielle og i mere afslappede situationer, oplyser frimærkeagenten for det australske postvæsen i Skandinavien, Nordfrim."

Australians will be reminded of the Danish Royal Couple long after they leave the country. In honor of the Crown Prince and Crown Princess´ first official visit to the Crown Princess´ homeland, Australia Post will be issuing stamps with images of the couple on them. The stamps will be a combination of 10 50 cent pieces along with a world map showing Australia and photos of the Crown Princely couple. The images, which will be accurately selected and displayed along with the official wedding photos and those photos done when they were first married, will be of an official kind and of a more relaxed variety, said the postal agent of Australia Post, who is in charge of mail that goes to Scandinavia.

Thank you pdas1201 for the photos.

A princess is dazzled by the darling buds of March
By Damien Murphy
March 10, 2005

After the fauna, the flora ... Princess Mary accepts flowers from four-year-old Arabella Edwards from the Canberra suburb of O'Connor.
Photo: Andrew Taylor

Royalty or not, the mob could not be blamed for being unruly. The last time eastern greys living in the parklands of Government House in Canberra had contact with humans, the males were neutered.

So the challenge yesterday was to win their co-operation for a photograph with worldwide distribution potential: the princess and the 'roos.

The "great kangaroo hunt of Yarralumla" began with a busload of cameramen and women, photographers and journalists driving into the grounds and dropped near the kangaroos, dozing indifferently under gum trees in the afternoon heat.

The idea was that Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, the Governor-General, Major-General Michael Jeffery, and his wife, Marlena, would casually wander between the cameras and the animals to allow the instant Australiana-meets-European royalty to be recorded for posterity.

"Be aware," a Government House spokesman warned the media, "these are wild animals. They go where they want to go."

But the media were noisy, and some of them colourfully dressed, so the mob were spooked and bounced too far away. Yarralumla's gardening supervisor, Norm Dunn, and his team herded the mob into a photo opportunity, with the aid of a four-wheel-drive. When the regal and vice-regal couples walked into view, the 'roos helpfully hopped into frame to a chorus of clicking cameras.

Impressed, the royal couple appeared to be making Skippy calls. Mary even stepped back into her husband's steadying arm when the eastern greys bounced up.

Then the couple were whisked off for afternoon tea at the Lodge with the Prime Minister, John Howard, and his wife, Janette. Later, at a reception at Parliament House, a beaming Mr Howard told Prince Frederik that Australians gratefully approved his choice of bride and attributed their famous romance to the "sparkle of a great city" - Sydney during the 2000 Olympics.

The Opposition Leader, Kim Beazley, said the princess was a tribute to public education, telling a story about a Tasmanian teachers' union banner at the time of the royal wedding which said: "Tasmanian Public Schools - Education for a Princess."

Earlier the couple checked out the view of Canberra from the roof of Parliament House and toured the National Museum.

Crown Princess Mary looked down on a sea of umbrellas, smiling faces and Danish and Aussie flags as thousands of cheering Melburnians gathered in Federation Square to see Denmark's royal visitors.

Schoolchildren sported plastic tiaras and strained to catch a glimpse of the glamorous couple, while older fans clutched cameras, hoping to capture the moment on film.

All seemed mesmerised as Mary reminisced about living in Melbourne.

"Melbourne was actually my first home away from home, a time which I enjoyed immensely," she said.

"It is a great city to live in."

In the mid-1990s, before meeting Crown Prince Frederik in Sydney, Mary Donaldson lived in Melbourne and worked as an advertising executive.

Princess Mary told the large crowd that the couple were moved by Melbourne's welcome.

"Thank you for ...welcoming us with such warm hearts, it is really overwhelming and makes us so extremely happy."

"Another event that we were very moved to hear about was the public celebration of our wedding that Federation Square hosted last year."

Mary wore a three-quarter length white coat with a gold and green print over an olive green dress, topped by a matching green hat with cream brim and feather.

Victorian Premier Steve Bracks said it was a pleasure and a thrill to have Denmark's royals in Melbourne.

"The distance between Denmark and Victoria is vast but the ties are strong," he said.

The prince and princess were at Federation Square to launch Square To Square, a non-stop video link between Federation Square and Copenhagen's Radhuspladsen (City Hall Square).

Frederik and Mary launched the link by chatting to the mayor of the Danish capital who, along with several expat Aussies, braved the freezing temperatures in the City Hall Square at 1am local time.

Mr Bracks said the project would close the distance and strengthen the ties between the countries.

"The permanent link will enable someone standing here to see someone standing in Copenhagen and talk to them in real time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

Princess Mary joked: "Who knows what relationships will be established by the video link?"

The crowd included about 100 parents and children from Toorak's Danish School.

Mother Charlotte Frimodt and her daughter Kasandra, 11, were thrilled to be there. Kasandra had brought an AFL footy as a present for the
prince and a bouquet of red and white roses for the princess.

"I like them because they are down to earth and very nice people.

"I am very pleased to have the day off school to be here," she said.

Meanwhile, an older fan, Lynn Elphinstone from Perth, was in town to visit her daughter.

"I thought I would come along because they are not coming to Perth," she said.

Ms Elphinstone has been a royal watcher since the age of four, when she saw the Queen in 1954.

After taking time to greet the crowds, Frederik and Mary boarded a boat called Royal Barge for a 15-minute trip to the Docklands to attend a state reception hosted by Mr Bracks.

The Danish couple's short Melbourne visit will end this afternoon when they fly to Mary's home state of Tasmania.
