Yes, perhaps next year?

We have seen Bella and Christian acting like pros in front of a lot of people quite anumber of times now.
And last summer we saw Vincent and Josephine comfortably facing very enthusiastic crowds of up to several hundreds who looked different from themselves and in strange surroundings. And next year they'll no doubt have a rudimentary grasp of English for them to understand that all those strange people just want to say hello and are glad to see them.
So I think it will be a fairly safe bet to say the family will go to Australia next year. - I just hope that at least M&F this time will drop by New Zealand as well.

Ninth Island, a part of Tasmania, is up for sale.

CP Mary's grandfather Captain Peter Donaldson lost his ship the "Shearwater" on a reef off the island in 1962.

No loss of crew, and the remains of the ship are still there.

(Cargo was livestock.)

Yours for just $500,000 Oz dollars - though the marketing is being aimed towards Chinese buyers.


And while I'm posting about Tasmanian islands, another one - Satellite Island - has been named Number 2 in the UK's "Harper's Bazaar" list of the top ten privately owned islands of the world.

(So yes, the Maldives and Seychelles are listed dear W and K, but not Mustique! Tassie is apparently better. ).

CP Mary's two sisters, Jane and Patricia, yesterday presented the "Crown Princess Mary Scholarships" to seven young Danes as part of the University of Tasmania's 125th Anniversary.

This is the largest number of scholarships awarded in one year.

There is a nice photo of the seven young people online in an article by Helen Kempton - "Seven Danish exchange students snare Crown Princess Mary Scholarships to study at UTAS".

Thank you, Sun Lion.
I think it's such a fine idea that Jane and Patricia presents " The Crown Princess Mary's Scholarships" to young Danes every year. And this year as part of the University of Tasmania's 125th Anniversary. Hope it means a trip Down Under for the CP family in October, where it will be celebrated.

Well I'll have to check this out -

Today's new issue of "Woman's Day" has a couple of CP Mary's nieces on the cover, "Our Secret Life With Aunty Mary!".

(Perhaps a counter to last week's facebook family feud stories?)

Thanks Roskilde for posting the link.

I'll have a flip through the magazine when I'm at the shops later this week. I wonder if they gave an actual interview.

Is this an actual interview or did they just cobble together a story and fill the rest with pictures? Which it looks like they grabbed off social media.

Is this what journalism is these days? However, I recall WD's did one or two exclusive interviews with Mary in the past? Still. I find it hard to believe they would give an interview.

This is a welcome story to see when compared to last week's clearly fake one. I am still gobsmacked that someone actually believed it and wrote a story about it.

Aren't Leeann's daughters from her first marriage? I don't think they are John Donaldson's children. In fact, I don't remember them even being at the wedding (or they didn't sit in the front row with the Donaldsons).

One of Leeann's daughters Sharee is from a previous relationship, the other one Michelle is Leeann and John's daughter. They didn't attend the wedding because their parents couldn't afford to take them.

Judging from the quality of the photos (and the photos themselves... Who would give these to a magazine??) they're just taken from facebook or instagram. It's humbling in a way to see Mary's background. She's gone through such a transformation! To make royalty shine and inspire a lot of the everyday life (that we all share) has to be hidden. They do it well in Denmark !

Ekstra Bladet today quotes Mary's brother, John Stuart Donaldson. He has responded in an e-mail to EB saying that: "Jeg kan bekræfte, at hele Facebook-opslaget er falsk, = I can confirm that the whole Facebook-post is false/fake".

I had a chance to check out the magazine today and this is actually a four-page feature.

Lots of photos of different family members I hadn't seen before.

I don't think CP Mary's family has been covered in such a big "spread" as this before in any of our magazines.

(As a family I mean. Much bigger than when Jane and Patricia were supporting cancer research fund-raising etc.)

Amidst all this, many things can be said to have happened but sound administration was not necessarily one of them. For that, there was one person to whom you turned, and that person was Etta Donaldson – mother of Princess Mary. In the Mad Man-ish world that then prevailed, Etta, the Vice Chancellor’s secretary, from a small alcove off the VC’s vast office, armed only with an IBM Selectric typewriter and a not inconsiderable charm, was reputed to run the university.

Now the family Donaldson can enjoy Christmas time this whole month of December, I came across this article from when Mary and Frederik spent Christmas at home in Denmark with Mary's family in 2010.

BT jumped into John Donaldson while he was on a walk in inner Copenhagen in the day after Christmas Eve.

BT asked him: What gave you the Crown Princess for Christmas?

- We just gave each other love, he replied with a smile, before he hurried on.

I love the Donaldson family

Aarhusianer modtager Mary-legat - Lokalavisen Aarhus

A Danish nurse-student received a grant From John Donaldson and one of Mary's sisters, while being an intern at Tasmania.

The student will meet Mary at Amalienborg in 2017.

Thanks Muhler.

Nice how her family in that way helps and supports Mary's work.

I have read that it's Mary's father who selects the recipients of the Crown Princess Mary scholarships.

Susan Moody had an unpleasant experience last weekend.
Marys stedmor i voldsom ulykke: Jeg troede vi skulle dø

She was on the train from Norwich to London when she and a fellow-author heard up front.

"Suddenly a violent and terrifying crash was heard. My first thought was that an explosion had occurred in the driver's cabin., the next that it was a terrorist-bomb, my third, as the train came to a wobbling, shaking and screaming halt, was that now we were all to die in a huge jumble steel and broken glass.
People screamed and large objects few close past the windows of the train.
The rescue-crew was there within fifteen minutes or less ane everyone was very kind and comforted us as best as they could".

It turns out that a tractor had driven onto the rails.
No one from the train was injured, but driver of the tractor...

"I hope I will be able to use this event in a book".

A couple of days later Susan Moody received 50 £ and vouchers from the train company as compensations for the experience.

You can read about on Susan Moody's Facebook page.

I care a lot about the family of Princess Mary. I wonder how many siblings has the father and the mother of Mary. It is a curiosity that I have.

Mary's family are in Denmark

Her&Nu (out on the street today) brings pictures of big smiling Jane Stephens in sunny Denmark. Jane attended the 'World Rowing Masters Regatta 2016' which took place in Bagsværd (near Copenhagen) in the previous week.

Jane combined it of cause to visit her sister, and Jane tells she lives with Mary and Frederik at Frederik VII's palace.

"We are all in Denmark to celebrate our father, who turned 75 years on September the 5th," says a happy Jane to Her&Nu.

"Even trough I'm often here in Denmark, it is just great every time."

BT could last week tells that also Mary's brother, John Donaldson, was seen with Crown Prince Frederik to a Danish concert.

So at any rate both Mary's father, John Donaldson and Susan, Mary's sister and brother, Jane and John are here.

Lovely for Mary.

(It's Her&Nu's frontpage, so I guess they put it online in some days...)
