Thanks for the pics

It's a nice hairstyle Mary has, it suits her.

The model of an environmentally benign town is interesting. City-planning is something the Chinese are very much interested in and as they intend to drastically reduce the urban pollution in particular (it has become hazardly high) and DK has a lot of experience in environmentally friendly solutions this model may be the must important part of the exhibition.

I also noticed that Chinese security kept very close to Frederik - along with two PET officers.

That's a very charming Asian lady. If I'm not mistaken she's the wife of a Danish ambassador and as such M&F have met her before. I can't remember her origin, but I don't think she's Chinese.

ADDED: She can't be. I very much doubt an ambassador's wife would walk around with a sign from Georg Jensen. - But she's still charming though...

Great pics, thanks all for posting.

It is always great to see Mary and Frederik on these visits they are such a charming couple. They were interested in all they saw, I like this some others do not seem to be interested when making such visits.
Mary looks elegant and the colour really suits her, love the new hair stlye.
Mary is such a lovely princess.

Thanks, Fairy Tale

The videos fortunately focused on Mary, because in the clips Frederik looked uncomfortable (and probably was).
I would wish he would work a little more with his bodylanguage. Sometimes it's charming and refreshing when he puts his hands in his pockets all the time. But hands in his pockets and his arms folded across his chest, that to me came across as a bit stand-offish.
Put something in his hands, an iPad or anything, just keep his hands occupied.

Is it just me, or was there a couple of Danish tones in Mary's pronounciation in the speech she gave?

He has the best teacher at his side I can imagine it's something he doesn't want to change at all..
