I am quit sure they will get out safe. They are visiting the King of Thailand and the people demonstrating are loyal to the King.

They are in the very best of hands.

I am sure if they were at any risk - they themselves along with the Danish foreign minister (who is also in Thailand) - would leave for Denmark immediately. But I don't think that will become necessary.

From what I have read, the demonstrations are in a different part of the country. Mary and Frederik are far away from them. It looks like they are really enjoying their visit.

I am surfing the web and saw earlier today that demostrators flooded the airport. According to that report a lot of tourists were stuck there.
I am sure Mary and Frederick are being treated with kids' gloves and perhaps they have no idea anything is amiss.
How much longer will this visit last?

The Thais know how crucial the tourist industry is for them, they wouldn't do anything to risk the security of tourists. Right now they are holding the main airport in Bangkok, but they are not violent in the manner that they threaten people, they are simply protesting. Most tourists spend their time outside of Bangkok so they are not affected, for example there are something like 20,000 Swedes in Thailand right now but most of those haven't seen any protesters - only those who were planning to fly home from this particular airport. I read somewhere that Frederik and Mary didn't even use this airport so they are not affected in any way, they will probably use either a private airfield or then the old main airport in Bangkok (which is not under "siege") to fly home.

No, the demonstrations are in Bangkok. That is where the CP Couple are.

But Bangkok is a huge City, which is why the CP Couple has not been in contact with the demonstrations at all - according to Frederik (He has told a reporter - who asked - so).

But of course the Danish media are following the situation.......it is a good story :o)

That is what is reported in the Danish media as well. And they are protesting in a very civilised maner.

IMO, if people feel a need to protest - they shall do so.

Let's hope nothing violent comes from these protests.

I didn't like Mary's purple dress. It was too casual looking. The two Thai princesses were all glam, but Mary looked as if she was wearing something you'd hang around the house in!

Photos Day 4.

The Crown Prince Couple visit the Siam Society.

At a reception at Siam Society in Bangkok, HRH the Crown Prince of Denmark was appointed Honorary Vice President of Siam Society. The Crown Prince Couple afterwards tasted Thai food and watched traditional Thai dance.

The pictures from today are great. Frederik looked like he was having fun driving those cars/mini trucks. Mary looked very nice, a nice dress for the warm Thailand weather.

Thanks for the photos, Mary seems to have enjoyed the whole trip, have loved seeing the interaction between her and the locals. The warmth displayed by both can be seen in the photos.
Have liked all of Mary's outfits some more than others of course, however todays dress is one of my favourites.

I love this colour on Mary. She looks very good. Perhaps she felt tired and wore these huge sunglasses. They seemed to have had a very busy schedule during this trip.

I loved seeing the photos of Frederik driving the tractor/forklift/mini-truck thingy! He looked like a little kid with a new toy! He looked like he definitely enjoyed having that opportunity.
