Pain for Danes but Prince shouts beers

By AMANDA LULHAM

March 2, 2005

HE'S the perfect bloke to have around. After being whipped on the water yesterday, Crown Prince Frederik shouted beers for everyone in the bar afterwards.

Sydney turned on near-perfect sailing conditions for the opening day of the Rolex Farr 40 world championships.

The event is for yachting's equivalent of royalty -- boats full of America's Cup and Olympic-class sailors.

Arriving at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia early yesterday morning, the Prince met up with his eight Danish crewmates on his yacht Nanoq before heading out to sea for the first two races of the series.

There was nothing to brag about for the Danes. They finished 22nd and 23rd out of 28 boats in the two races.

He also got beaten by his wife Crown Princess Mary in a best-of-three match race series on the weekend.

He doesn't seem too bothered about all the beatings, though.

Throughout it all Frederik has been his normal smiling self and a popular figure around the CYC dock, which has been his second home in Sydney. The Prince, a well-known sailor in the former Olympic Dragon class, is contesting his first Farr 40 world championships after being convinced to buy the one-design boat by crewmates.

Having attended the opening cocktail party with his wife on Monday night, Frederik yesterday restricted his socialising to his own yacht after the racing. But not before offering beers for the other crews as well.

Like most of his rivals, Frederik left early to prepare for today's three races off Sydney Heads.

Perfect pose then Mary races away

By MICHELLE CAZZULINO

March 2, 2005

IT'S not everyone's idea of relaxing but Princess Mary spent part of her day off posing for a life-sized portrait.

With her diary free of any official commitments, the Australian-born royal sat in her hotel room for several hours yesterday morning posing for an official portrait by Bundeena-based Chinese artist Jiawei Shedhen.

Later she managed to evade a huge media pack outside, driving herself and two friends to a clothing boutique in Woollahra where she purchased a $229 black cardigan before heading back into the city.

There was no such escape for 57-year-old Mr Shedhen, who was tight-lipped about the morning spent with Princess Mary other than describing her as a "perfect" and "very natural" model.

While no details of the portrait have been released, it will reportedly show Mary in a long dress with a pale blue sash and an elephant brooch worn by Danish royalty.


Mr Shedhen, who would normally request three sittings with a portrait subject, replied "I don't think so" when asked if he would ask the Princess to sit for him again.

The artist has an accomplished record, having previously depicted Tom Hughes QC, Melbourne Lord Mayor John So and Mary MacKillop.

His painting of Princess Mary will be hung in the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra, when completed.

National Portrait Gallery director Andrew Sayers, who accompanied the artist to yesterday's sitting, would not reveal any further details but praised Mr Shedhen's skills as the reason he had been entrusted with such an important commission.

"His work appears very often in the National Portrait Gallery and that's why he was chosen," Mr Sayers said.

With his wife posing, Crown Prince Frederik spent much of the day on Sydney Harbour taking part in the Farr-40 world sailing championships.

The Princess finally left her hotel at 2.30pm, driving a silver Audi TT coupe believed to be on loan to Prince Frederik while in Sydney.

With two female companions and with her face obscured under sunglasses and a large visor, Princess Mary drove to Oxford St, Woollahra, to Yipse boutique, which carries clothing from overseas labels.

Sources said the group spoke in Danish during their 15-minute visit, with Princess Mary trying on just two items -- a white pleated summer skirt and a long-sleeved black top.

It was the second time in two days she had attended the store and, while she left empty-handed on Monday, she bought a black vintage-style cardigan yesterday.

Mary's private picture upsets paparazzi
By Ellen Connolly
March 2, 2005

Princess Mary was happy to pose for a private portrait sitting yesterday but was shy when it came to appearing in public.

Mary, who had no official duties yesterday, was understood to have spent three hours at her hotel posing for Jiawei Shen, who is painting her portrait.

At 2.40pm she left the hotel in an Audi sports car, which was quickly driven away her minder.

"All we heard was the wheels screeching," said one paparazzo waiting outside the hotel.

"When we tried to follow her, the police blocked our cars. It was crazy behaviour and totally unnecessary. She could have left quietly and we would never have known. It's encouraging this kind of Diana hysteria. All we wanted was a photo."

Later in the afternoon, Mary was spotted on a shopping trip in Oxford Street, Paddington.

While she was trying to avoid the public attention, her husband, Prince Frederik, was happy to be photographed and talk to the media before competing in yachting's Farr40 World Championships on the harbour.

On Monday, a Danish journalist, Anne-Mette Gregers, from the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, urged Mary to "press the flesh" with the public. "Go public, Mary. Meet the people," she wrote.

When Frederik was asked yesterday whether he believed he and his wife should interact more with the public during their visit, he said: "We will see how things go." He said they did not want to force themselves on the Australian public.

Chinese-born Shen, who was unaware of any such claims, said Mary was the perfect model to paint. "She's a natural. A fantastic model," he said.

Mary wore a long red dress and the Order of the Elephant, a pale blue sash with an elephant brooch worn by Danish royalty.

Shen expects the portrait to be completed in seven months. It will be loaned to Denmark's portrait gallery before being hung in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.

Note the debut appearance of the new anti-paparazzi "sun" visor.

Yes, true. Did you watch the news where she met the school children, and saw their little performance? It was so cute. I'm looking for an article about it.

Yes, and Ray Martin extended his program to show live the arrival of Mary and Frederik at the hotel for the Red Cross Ball.

Not sure about her dress, or her hair (I'll leave those to the fashionistas), but the kids near the womens' refuge were cute.

Her visit earlier today wasn't in the official program, but they managed to get the kids out in force. The Danish media will now be happy.

Not as good as cuddling koalas, but of course Mary would be wise to that old ploy!

I, for one am also unable to decide on the dress, the safe thing to say for the moment would be "No comment." Its just something about the dress that doesn't seem right to me. I'll dwell on that for a little longer and try to figure out what. Maybe its the halter neck top with a ruffle skirt or the colors.

Meanwhile, here are more pics from Getty Images and Anp

From TV, the dress had sheen and movement. Nice diamond earrings.

The late-evening news here in Sydney led with the arrival at the ball, scenes from inside, and the departure (Frederik and Mary stayed over an hour longer than the appointed schedule).

This tour has been more successful than anyone could have imagined.

Anyway, tomorrow night is Dinner with the Governor: Royals dine with the Vice-Regal. This may be interesting, certainly it will be more formal.

Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary wowed hundreds of Sydneysiders on Wednesday night as they arrived for a Red Cross charity dinner in the city.

The royal pair alighted from their official car to the cheers of several hundred people who had waited outside the plush Westin Hotel to glimpse the glamorous couple.

Australian-born Princess Mary was wearing a pale pink satin halterneck top with a midnight blue layered skirt, and open-toed strappy stiletto shoes.

Her dark brown hair was swept up into an elaborate bun, highlighting a pair of diamond drop earrings. She was carrying a small silver jewelled handbag.

Princess Mary did not talk to waiting media, other than to respond to a question about the origin of her outfit: "It's a combination of Danish and international designers."

Ten-year-old schoolgirl Melody Cargill handed her a bunch of pink roses before the couple attended a pre-dinner cocktail party for VIP guests.

Wednesday night's appearance follows criticism there have not been enough opportunities for locals to mingle with the royal couple during their Australian tour.

Singers Delta Goodrem, Alex Lloyd, Olivia Newton-John and Katie Noonan, from the band George, later performed at the gala dinner, titled One Enchanted Evening.

With some guests paying as much as $1,000 per head, the night was expected to raise more than $700,000 for the Australian Red Cross.

The artists were chosen because they are the princess' favourite Australian performers.

Delta Goodrem, wearing a yellow beaded Tea Rose gown, said that, when introduced to the royal couple, she spoke about a recent trip to Denmark.

"They were beautiful, they were really lovely," she told reporters.

Alex Lloyd said he was surprised when the royal couple asked him about his music, and discussed his first album when he was introduced.

More than 900 people, including NSW Premier Bob Carr, former prime ministers Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser and Australian Idol finalist Anthony Callea, joined the event.

But some celebrities were not so well known to the foreign press - when asked his name by a Danish journalist, swimmer Ian Thorpe told a bemused media contingent he was Bob Marley.

Earlier on Wednesday, Princess Mary was cheered by up to 100 school children as she visited a women's shelter in Sydney on behalf of the Red Cross.

Inside the grand ballroom where the dinner was held, the main feature was the royal table, which was furnished in assorted shades of red, with gold chairs for the couple.

There were also three arrangements of red roses, containing 300 roses styled as large crosses, and 120 tealights on the table.

The dinner menu was by award-winning celebrity chef Luke Mangan, who designed an entree of smoked salmon and potato terrine with baby beetroot and, for the main course, a breast of Kangaroo Island chicken with sweet potato puree.

Dessert was star anise and cinnamon pannacotta with pistachio fairy floss.

Ticket proceeds help the Red Cross young women's health program, a service that provides support for pregnant and homeless teenagers.
