Stuck in a hotel, because the ferries are cancelled I saw TV2 at 19.00. They had a segment about the Mary effect.

There has been an increase of Australian turists to DK of 89 % since M&F got married. In the rest of Europe the increase is of 17 %.

And as we already know the export to Australia has doubled.

Roskilde PM'ed an article to me from the serious newspaper Berlingske Tidende. It was an analasys basically concluding that not only are M%F taking over from the Regent Couple, they have to a large degree taken over.
And that QMII can now lean back with a big proud smile. She created an environment, where this smooth transition could take place and where M&F could try flapping their wings.
With Mary in particular utillising her position to promote heavy weight issues, both nationally and internationally. She is in regards to the PR and political punch she has, basically the queen of Denmark in anything but name now.

- Whether she (and thereby Frederik and her children as well) can be considered a kind of semi-royal of, or adopted or honorary royal of Australia, as several Danish articles have hinted, that I'll leave to our resident Australians members to judge.

How is the interview?
Frederik: "I'm very proud of my wife (looking at her), to experience this warmth - as a returned daughter who coming home"

Mary: "It's very overwhelming. I had thought that the interest would disappear after a few years, but it's overwhelming and heart-warming to feel all this warmth."


And a fun note:

During the show, which was in English, Mary suddenly came to speak Danish and she couldn't help but to laugh a bit of it. Which got the TV-hosts smiling and to say: "Yes although the Australians believe she istheir princess, she is ours."

As I see it, Mary is an Australian who happens to have become a Danish Princess because of who she married, and that makes her husband and children and in-laws honorary Australians. I happen to adore her mother-in-law and am very happy to claim her.

A clip with Christian, Bella, Vincent and Josephine at home telling about Australia has just been shown. Adorable children.

Christian remembered the Sydney Opera House as much ... triangular

That sure is good enough for me.

With the show running on the TV, it was funny to see the children interrupt the interview of M&F and that Christian could actually remember the Sydney Opera. He recalls that it was "very triangular".
Vincent wasn't that impressed, he had just been building a big house. So no big deal!
Anyway, he and sister Josephine were a bit sleepy, because they hadn't had their middday nap.

I'm not even sure whether Jørn Utzon's wife is still alive. He himself was 90 when he died in 2008.

I've seen a picture somewhere of at least one of Utzon's sons in front of opera and of his daughter Lin Utzon and some younger persons who are probably Utzon's grand children.

Utzon has two sons, Jan and Kim, who are both architects, and a daughter Lin who is a very talented designer working with various arts crafts and textiles. She did a, IMO, very beautiful job in the 80s of decorating Volvo's head quarters in Sweden.

A HUGE thank you Sun Lion and Lady Rosie who faithfully turned up at these events to provide us with what felt like almost live coverage :-) and to everyone else who put up lots of links here for us to enjoy. It has been great following this trip with all this information.

It was indeed a pleasure Userdane. The visits are really a wonderful experience.

And Roskilde....YAY for The Killing and Borgen!! M&F share my taste in great TV drama.

Thank you to everyone for the links this past week.

Great pics and thanks to everyone. How exciting for the Award recipents to come to Sydney to receive their awards.
The severe storm received good news coverage here, hope Denmark did not experience any damage. One of our young reporters needs a geography lesson he said; " Once the storm crosses the English channel it will affect France, Germany and the UK!!"
Cr Prss Mary maybe your Princess but she is also my honorary Princess. And like Roslyn I too adore Her Majesty, what a wonderful lady and role model she is for Prss Mary and Prss Marie. And because so many Aussies follow this family on these forums we have the chance to make so many wonderful friends from overseas. Cheers

Wonderful posts everyone.

That must have been some storm Muhler and Roskilde.

Hi Lilla - good news it was in English - will be able to watch peoples' faces and not the bottom of the screen trying to follow what's going on.

(Is English so wide-spread in Denmark that the broadcast would have had a big audience in this language? I'm afraid most Aussies are mono-linguistic - unless they, or their parents, migrated here of course.)

Today's "Telegraph" mustn't have had time to include the big event, but they have a nice story, and large photo, of CP Mary shopping yesterday afternoon at "The Intersection" in Paddington, where there are many Australian designer brands located.

Apparently the white dress she wore yesterday is from Australian brand "Willow" and after spending more than 1/2 an hour in their store , she left with two large shopping bags. Lots of security around her - male and female officers we've seen in Sydney this week.

A fellow shopper told the paper how thrilled she was to see M, and how charming she was to the store staff.

Cheers, Sun Lion.

Alas, one has been killed and many injured in what is now the storm with the most severe wind speeds on record. For periods of hurricane strength.
Fortunately it passed so quickly that the damages appear to be limited.

Here is a big pic of Mary and the actress Sofie Gråbøl, who was treated recently for breast cancer. http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...riser-2013.jpg

Didn't know Sofie Grabol had been ill - so her hair is now growing back, by the look of it.

Lots of Danish TV shows here in Oz thanks to SBS.

They've had a growing audience with the three "The Killings" series, "Borgen" and even my husband watched every episode of the two, or was it three, of the series about PET. (I say "even" because of having to read sub-titles, but he enjoyed the show so much, he didn't mind them.)

(Can't think of the name of it at the moment, but had CP Mary's friend the actress Ellen "Something" in it.)

Hopefully Sofie has the illness behind her - she looked glowing in the photos.

Cheers, Sun Lion.

The show was subtitled here.
Anyway, it was after all so uncomplicated that I'd say most Danes would be able to follow the show without too many problems.
Especially as the two presenters spoke such "neutral" English. - With all due respect for dialects, it can be very distracting for a foreigner like me to watch a say Discovery show with a narrator speaking with a say heavy northern English accent.

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the Australian presenter (I didn't like their jokes by the way, they came across to me as being condencending towards the Aussie presenter) but I doubt the Danish presenter would distract Australian viewers in regards to accent.

TV is the big teacher here, as all foreign (exept for small children) movies and TV-shows are subtitled, so everybody here are exposed to English in particular since infancy. - To hear John Wayne speak German, well....it's not quite the same thing.

That must be Rejseholdet, or Unit one as I believe it's known internationally. - Which does exist by the way. Being the national police's special crime investigation team. Albeit that the real ones focus more on councelling and aiding the local police, rather than running around and doing all the investigation themselves.
The shows caused some controversy as they were based on real cases. And caused in at least one case some debate because the victims and other figures were indentifiable from real life.

And you are thinking of Ellen Hillingsøe.

The Award Show is now online

Kronprinsparrets Priser 2013 - 28. okt. 2013 | DR1 | DR


ADDED:

Mary makes her charming "Oh! I just switched over to the Danish" moment 30:40 minutes into the show.

The clip with M+F and all children are 0:42 minutes into the show. But there are several clips with M+F during the show, including one in which they sail around in Copenhagen and tell, so if you have the time and desire then watch the whole show.

Almost all Danes speak and understand English. I don't think the broadcast in this language has had any negative effect on the numbers of viewers.

I find it understandable for most Aussies to be mono-linguistic. You don't have the need to learn another language. Danes do - there isn't that many people in the world speaking Danish

That's it Muhler. Didn't know the scripts were based on real events, though I remember being struck by the references to the Royals in the first few episodes at the time of seeing them.

Yes, that's the lady's name. Didn't realise she and CP Mary knew each other at the time I was watching the show last year and the year before, but have since seen photos from Mary's early days in Denmark at Ellen's child's Christening, and more recently them lunching together etc.

You're right Lilla.

I forget about the size of Denmark sometimes - and the size of Australia.

(While I'm in Sydney in a sleeveless top with the fan on, my mother and the cat are on the phone in Tasmania with the house shut up and the heating on all day.)

There are only about one million less people in Sydney, than there are in the whole of Denmark.

No wonder the population feel close to their Royals - no-one is going to get "lost in the crowd" there.

Cheers, Sun Lion.

P.S. And yes Muhler, John Wayne needs to be seen with his own voice.
