This is Marys mother Henrietta Donaldson. She and her husband moved from Scotland to Tasmania in 1963 where they lived with their four children.
Henrietta Donaldson died in 1997 during a heart surgery

on www.kongehuset.dk it says this

"The crown princess started school at Clear Lake City Elementary school in Houston, Texas 1974-1975"

Is this Texas, USA? I had no idea she and her family had lived there??
But she was born in Tasmania... or was she not?

According to en.wikipedia.org, Mary's family lived there while her father was doing a fellowship at the University of Houston. And yes, she was born in Australia. The family moved back after his fellowship ended.

That's pretty neat, that her father did his fellowship at the University of Houston. I just graduated from that college in August.

Ah..now I see why she went to the Clear Lake Elementary School, it nearby.

If Mary's family is moving to Denmark for three years like a previous poster said A.) which family members are moving, B.) where will they live and C.) when will they be moving?

I guess if that's true it explains why no one from her family has visited the baby yet!

The only member's of Mary's family moving (or having moved) to Denmark is her Father and step-mother who reside in Arhus 3 hours North of Copenhagen for about half the year. The rest of the year they spent in Oxford with her sons or Tasmania with his other daughters and son. I read somewhere that Susan Moody actually had some Danish connections prior to Mary meeting Frederik. Apparantly Susan's godfather was Danish and she had friends in Denmark so it wasn't as big a change as it might appear at first glance.

Mary's cousin jailed on sex charges

From:
By Nick Clark

December 01, 2005



A TASMANIAN cousin by marriage of Princess Mary was behind bars last night after being found guilty of three sex charges.
A Supreme Court jury took seven hours to unanimously find teacher Brendan Geoffrey Johncock guilty of aggravated sexual assault and indecent assault of a 16-year-old student in 2001.
He was found not guilty of rape and five other charges.
Johncock, 42, a former teacher at Launceston's St Patrick's College, is married to Jacqueline - one of three Donaldson cousins of Princess Mary who live in Tasmania. They were guests at the Copenhagen wedding of Mary Donaldson to Prince Frederik in May 2004 despite the sex charges having been laid in December 2003.

Mary's stepmother will be teaching a class at Copenhagen University next year, called Detective Fiction, reports BT. The class will be an elective for the students studying for their Bachelor's in English.

Mysterious royal stepmom takes teaching job
By The Copenhagen Post

Crown princess Mary's father and stepmother secure teaching duties at Copenhagen University

Crown princess Mary's father and stepmother appear to be fitting in well in Danish society - both of them have taken teaching positions at Copenhagen University.
Mary's father, John Donaldson, will be teaching mathematics beginning in 2006, while her stepmother, Susan Donaldson will be teaching a course in crime fiction.

Mary's mother had heart disease. This is the primary reason why Mary became so involved in the Danish Heart Association and why Prince Henrik so generously relinqinshed his patronship of the assocaton to Mary.

Yes there is a strong resemblance to Jane although I think Mary is the prettier of the two as she has softer features than Jane and Jane actually reminds me of Jane Ferguson in that photo..:)

from Imagine :

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark's father Professor John will attend aVelux Visiting Professorship at the Copenhagen University

Quote:
D. Donaldson
Professor John D. Donaldson tiltræder et Velux Visiting
Professorship ved Institut for Matematiske Fag ved Det
Naturvidenskabelige Fakultet, Københavns Universitet. Det markeredes ved en tiltrædelsesforelæsning 2. februar 2006.
Den handlede om katastrofeteori som eksempel på anvendt matematik. Katastrofeteori er en model for udviklinger, hvor der under særlige forhold kan forekomme drastiske forandringer ved ganske små ændringer i de faktorer, udviklingen afhænger af.
Det er ikke fænomener man normalt ser i dagligdagen, hvor små ændringer sjældent medfører store forandringer. Men inden for en række områder, for eksempel aktiemarkedet eller sygdomsforløb ses eksempler på ekstreme forandringer foranlediget af små ændringer i begyndelsen af et forløb. Man kan for eksempel anvende katastrofeteori inden for udviklingen af ny medicin. Her kan små forandringer i menneskets evne til at optage medicin give utilsigtede ændringer i hvordan medicinen virker.
John D. Donaldson skal forske i anvendt matematik, herunder hvordan katastrofeteori kan anvendes i andre naturvidenskabelige forskningsfelter, eksempelvis biologi og nanoteknologi. Han vil også holde kurser i anvendt matematik. Udbredelse af kendskab til matematik hos unge ligger særligt John D. Donaldson på sinde, og han forventer at indgå aktivt i kontakten med blandt andet gymnasieskolen og folkeskolen.
Forelæsningen var offentlig.
På spørgsmålet om forskelle på Matematikeres forhold i Danmark og i hans hjemland nævnte han, at der dér holdtes en årlig konference med ca.100 Matematikere og Business folk som diskuterede praktiske relationer mellem de to sektorer.
På spørgsmålet om relationen mellem filosofi og Matematik sagde han at Matematikere ofte har så travlt med at fokusere på matematikken ,at de ikke har tid til filosofien.
