How nice to read. That they were able to spend some time together. I believe princess Benedikte, as patron, was also at the Rowing regatta.
When I read that Frederik had gone to the concert with Mary's brother John, I assumed more of the Donaldson family were in town. Must be nice for Mary/Frederik and kids for Mary's family to visit

So at any rate both Mary's father, John Donaldson and Susan, Mary's sister and brother, Jane and John are here.
At least they were in Denmark.
John Donaldson's birthday, the rowing regatta and the concert with Mary's brother all took place two weeks ago, but I guess they wouldn't travel to Denmark for just a few days.

Interesting, that Jane says, that she is "often" in Denmark.
I think there are lots of visits from Australia, friends and family, that we don't know of. Which is good, of course.

(..)
Last night arrived a big smiling Queen Margrethe, side by side, with Crown Princess Mary's father and sister, John Donaldson and Jane Stephens, for the opening of the exhibition at the Amalienborg Museum.

Crown Princess Mary's father, sister and brother have been in Denmark for 3 weeks now, where they all have celebrated Princess Mary's father, John Donaldson, 75th birthday d. September 5, says Jane.

Jane says further that although they are often here in Denmark at their little sister, so they enjoy it to the fully each time.

very nice that they can come and visit. Such a long flight, a 2-3 weeks stay only makes sense. We read about Mary's brother John attending a concert with Frederik on the 9th, nice that the two brother-in-laws can spend time together as well.

Well what don't you like about the Mary Donaldson universe, Roskilde?

May I ask what Elisabeth Buchwald's role is in this interesting exhibition?

Also interesting to see that Jane got to go through her little sister's wardrobe and have a pick! : Mary from the start: Kræftens Bekæmpelses solkampagne

Well, it saves weight when flying if you can fit baby-sis clothes I guess.

Elisabeth Buchwald helped QMII in selecting the pieces and present them in a way that would be most interesting to the general public.
There are no doubt items that means a lot to QMII/DRF and probably has an interesting story as well, but would be pretty meaningless and uninteresting to those who come to see the exhibition.

Perhaps the Queen doesn't like them.

Or perhaps they are not in Denmark at this time, which is more the real reason I think.

PH wasn't there either.

The most likely explanation is that QMII while having a chat with the Donaldson's simply invited them to come along. And you don't say no to a Majesty...
Apart from the fact that Jane and John Donaldson may actually have liked to come along.
So IMO no big deal.

And personally I wouldn't turn down a tour of that exhibition with QMII as a very lively guide.

I remember seeing a strange (possibly FB) post by Mary's brother about a trip(?) that she "who could not be named" would not be attending.
It looked legit, and if so so great to see the Ds gathering forces again.

I can't imagine how you would cope/deal with a daughter/sibling being thrust into such a public figure life style on the other side of the world!

I remember that one. It was a fake post.

The details are discussed here somewhere.

Thank you, Muhler. Is Elisabeth Buchwald familiar with curating exhibitions - profesionnally? Or was it more like a friend helping out?

Did anyone else notice John D. has lost quite a bit of weight? He's really aged but then again, that's probably because I still have the John Donaldson of the time of his daughter's wedding in mind... And we've all aged since then of course

PS I guess Jane will be flying home with an extra suitcase. The perks of having a royal sister, haha. Both Jane and Patricia are very toned and athletic like Mary, so they can easily wear the same clothes I guess.

She's professional.

And yes, I've noticed it too. Quite a weight-loss actually.

Isn't it Jane who is a kind of reserve-mother for Mary? I believe she mentioned their special relationship once. - Or perhaps I just dreamed it.

Neither would I turn down such an invitation, Muhler! Another notable absence for me during this family excursion was the wife of John Donaldson, Susan ....(I have forgotten her last name) Did I miss seeing her in the pictures shared publicly or did she perhaps not come to Denmark?
