Billed-Bladet - Marys søster besøger Fredensborg - se billederne

A repeat of the link.
I think Jane arrived with John and Susan to help look after Chrisitan and Isabella.

It's very nice that Mary's sister was able to visit her father in Denmark. Does anyone know if she brought her children with her? It was so sweet seeing Mary's nieces playing with their little cousins in Australia last year.

Crown Princess Mary's step-mother, Susan Moody, is writing a new book about Denmark called "Loose Ends":

This is quite interesting. I guess you don't know yet what is the book about. Because I was wondering if it's about the DRF.

I doubt if it will be about the DRF Susan tends to write suspense novels.

Alright, thanks for the info! Sgl said the book is about Denmark, so I thought that maybe she mentions the Royal family as well. Then I guess the story takes place in Denmark or something.

The article didn't give much info, but I would be very surprised if Susan would write about the DRF. It will most likely be one of her fiction novels. I think that she writes mysteries, but I'm not sure.

I doubt she will write about the royal family since she is the crown princess's step mother, it wouldnt be right IMO for her to do so.
My guess its just a story/novel that takes place in Denmark.

My thought exactly. It would be a bit too much for the Crown Princess' step-mother to write about the royal family and reveal inside information I googled "Mary Donaldson" and read in Wiki that her father currently teaches at the Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus. Which means that this isn't a simple visit. Susan Moody taught creative writing at the University of Copenhagen in 2006.

I don't think he has worked at the Universities for quite sometime. That info came from an article that was published in 2007.
However he is supposed to be teaching atm. i cannot recall where.

Thanks for the info, Lumutqueen! It wasn't clear in Wiki. I guess people who say Wiki isn't that accurate are right.

John Donaldson's current teaching position.

"Professor John D. Donaldson is a guest professor at Herlufsholm (Boarding) School in Nstved , Zealand , Denmark."


Courtesy of Wikipedia and Herlufsholm official website(in danish).

Google Translate, Grams Trans or another online program can translate the article into English.

Herlufsholm School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Herlufsholm

Herlufsholm

(An article in Danish about Professor John Donaldson-Guest Professor).



Billed Bladet also had an article a couple of month ago about his new teaching position.

Of course Susan wouldn't write about the DRF and Mary, but she might use them as inspiration, let's say...All authors, particularly fiction authors use their families as inspiration, so as Susan has a wealth of new subjects, why wouldn't she use it as creative fodder? You knowthe disclaimer "Characters and situations in this book are fictional and any similarlity to real events is purely coincidental"

Mary and her eldest sister Jane look the most similar...and Jane at 43 looks like she's had a hard life...not that there's anything wrong with that...She had her kids younger, and three of them, probably in her late20s/early 30s (Mary had her in mid/late 30s)...she is a hard worker and looks more down-to-earth and practical than her baby sister...So it will be interesting to see Mary at 43 (6 years time) Whether it is purely genetics and despite her best efforts Mary will look like Jane or will Mary's "easy" comfortable, fortunate life make her seem younger than Jane does now? It will be interesting to see...But I actually think both her sisters are looking better now than when Mary first married...their little sister is a Princess, so they have had to "step up" in terms of health and appearance?

I think it would be so strange to come and visit your sister in a castle, with servants and maids and security people around, whilst you used to sit on the veranda having a 'cuppa'. Do you get used to it as a family or do you long for 'normality'??....I don't know....I wonder if Mary longs for a 'normal, quiet family life in Tasmania' sometimes.....

It would be very normal if she does but many people dream of marrying a prince and Mary's life if you ocme to think about it, its quite quiet and relaxing. She is active but yet has alot of family time. She doesnt have photographers bothering her unless she is in Australia.
The Danes have been very welocming to Mary is what I hear therefore its not hard to adapt to the new life if you are accepted.

Its good to know that her family visits quite alot especially her sister.

Though we never hear of her brother and his family visiting. Infact, I don't think they've been back to Denmark since the wedding in 2004. A little strange, imo. Even if the whole family couldn't go, then surely her brother would/could make the trip?

I of course have absolutely no idea...these are just my observations with the information I have available to me which would be much the same as what would be available to the rest of you.

Both Mary's sisters have been back, with Jane being the more regular visitor.

The fact that the siblings do not openly visit each other often doesn't mean they are not close. It's just a consequence of the life choices they have taken. Anyone who has family living as far as Asia or Australia (from Europe) will know what I am talking about, some people don't visit their family for years, most will maybe go once a year or once in two years. It's a long flight and these days everybody is busy with their own lifes. With internet and skype many people, quite understandibly, don't see the need to put themselves to an expensive and time consuming ordeal what a such a flight can be when at the same time their own life is not being put on hold at home.

Jane looks as if she's having a hard life, on the other hand many women who are occupied with other things like job and family are not into fashion or looks and I find it quite charming that she didn't go to the beautician before visiting her sister.
