Mary was quite impressed by the portrait of her hanging in the National Portrait Gallery. The Crown Princess stated that she hadn't seen it before (meaning in person) so I'd imagine it was a pleasant experience for her to see the portrait up close and personal.

And as can be seen on page 41 of the above link provided by iceflower, Mary is carefully inspecting the artwork.

Photo 46, and Mary's showing a pack of Tim Tam's to Frederik (an Australian chocolate biscuit). They both seem rather pleased about it

Thank you for the youtube clips, for some reason, the Australian tv stations' websites do not allow me to watch.
Interesting to hear the range of accents! Also, the tour seems to be a really big hit!
CP Mary's posture is really enviable, esp w/heels.

At this point in his speech he is correcting the Leader of Australia's opposition who honoured the Crown Prince's achievement in marathon at 3 hours and 22 minutes. The Crown Prince said his personal record is actually 3 hours and 6 minutes, while sticking out his tongue. I think this is a Danish version of the anglo-saxon ''tongue in cheek''!.

Well, perhaps he for a brief second thought he was in New Zealand. - Due to jetlag of course...

This article also mentions the episode. A Dane in the life of Tony Abbott, from Joh to whoa
It's a funny article, but I fear the author does not belong among Tony Abbotts admires.



Women's Day has written a short story... I mean article.
Crown Princess Mary's family crisis

This time about how troubled Mary is because she can't stay with her family for Christmas.

Well, if M&F really were to spend Christmas in Tasmania with her family, I'd think she would be forgiven by the rest of the DRF as well as the Danes.
As long as she is back for the traditional New Year Courts - which quite a few look forward to...

So Women's Day is so far the hottest contender for the Silliest Article of this Visit Award.

Here are alot of lovely pics too: Newscom - Multimedia for Websites and Publishers

It seems to be a really good visit, Mary is really glowing at this visit.
I think that both she and Frederik are very surprised by the warm welcome they get, even if it rains

I hope for better weather tomorrow

Thanks Lady Rosie

The dancers look pretty fair-skinned to me. Are they Polynesians/Micronesians or something like that, rather than Aboriginals, for a lack of a better expression?
Or has this tribe/people been mixed up for so long with white settlers that there are few "pure-bloods" left?

------------------------------

A story from TV2: http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/...ammel-ven.html
When Mary went across a bridge on the way to the arts gallery, she suddenly spotted an old aquintance from university. And Mary went straight over to the woman, named Emily Harris, who congratulated Mary with the twins and they chatted briefly about children and old mates from university.

Well It wouldn't make much sense in having foreign islanders perform regional indigenous Australian customs

Any person with an indigenous heritage is considered just that, indigenous. The colour of the indavidual's skin, be it light or dark, is not deemed relevant.

Most indigenous Australian's, who's bloodline remains culturally intact, generally reside within their ancestral communuties in and around the Northern Territory, Queensland, and rural parts of New South Wales. Though naturally they can live wherever they like, and as such are also involved throughout many aspects of the community.

And danish B.T writes about it too: Mary fik uventet oplevelse - Royale - BT.dk

Of course.

I was merely wondering whether the Ngunnawal originally came to Australia from the Pacific, rather than from the north like other Australian indigenous tribes. Who at least in my eyes are typically darker-skinned and with different facial features.
I ask from an interest in a possible migration pattern. I couldn't give a hoot about the race.
- And in that respect I might add that until 25-30 years ago indigenous people in Australia were called australnegere here in DK, (perhaps because aboriginal is too difficult to pronounce) which litterally means Australian Negroes. Ironic actually as I probably have more in common with black Africans than the Australian indegineous peoples, who, as I understand it, arrived in Australia before the current Europeans migrated from Africa.

Oh I wasn't correcting you Muhler, I was however pointing out that here in Australia, the colour of an indigenous Australian's skin is not something that is seen as relevant (certainly in regards to cultural practice and by law). I've come across my fair share of foreigners, and occasionally some Australian's, who seem rather puzzled that an indigenous man or woman's colouring isn't that of the ace of spades (Not at all insinuating that you should fall into any such category, I might add). But for the benefit of others reading, I felt it pertinent to make comment on it.

Quite often the facial features can distinguish an indavidual who's bloodline is completely indigenous, as opposed to someone who's ancestry is also caucasion. Or, they are just fairer in colouration.

You are right in that northern and central indigenous Australian's are quite dark by appearance, whereas here in Victoria for example, a good many people who are indigenous, are fairer and often have green, hazel or even blue eyes and fair hair as opposed to the dark skin, eyes and hair of those elsewhere.

This can of course be attributed the environemnts in which they lived for thousands of years. The dry and arid inland deserts to the lush bushland and mountain ranges found around coastal borders.

* Indigenous Australian's are believed to have migrated to Australia from the Indian continent some 75,000 to 100,000 years ago.

I'll be attending an event at Dockland's tonight, so I'll keep an eye out for Frederik and Mary

Madame Royale, have a wonderful time this evening at Docklands. Muhler, I think Madame Royale pretty much covered the cultural aspects of our Aboriginees.

No one here in Australia respect or believe the tripe that is written in Woman's Day or New (No) Idea. They are trash magazines. As you said, I don't think the Danes or DRF would mind if Mary and family wanted to spend a Christmas here. They completely understand that she comes from a close-knit family.

A little confused- the schedule (shown on the first page of this thread for today) in Melbourne says that the couple are at Hotel Sofitel opening the State of Green - Join The Future. Think Denmark campaign AGAIN at Hotel Sofitel AGAIN. Is there some mistake? What event are they at here? Maybe I'm just missing something....

Another gallery from The Australian newspaper. Includes photos from today.

As for the Woman's Day article. I bought it for the photos but never for one moment thought that Mary and family would stay in Australia for Christmas. Just a load of rubbish. Her life is now in Denmark and her duty lies in that country.

I wish there was a purely pictorial magazine that gave you all the latest photos without having to make up nonsense to sell a magazine.

I'm not quite sure I understand what's confusing you?

Today the Crown Princely couple have been in talks with business delegations at the Hotel Sofitel on Collins Street.

They have also partaken in another culinary display, much like the one in Sydney.

* In around 5 minutes time The Crown Prince and Princess will be arriving at Denmark House, where they shall present Dr Hort with the Dannebrog Scholarship.

* Thanks Lady Rosie :)
