I most certainly agree with you Toledo. Poliolaiu, what was so sickening about Mary when she came back here to Australia? I never saw anything sickening about it at all.

The Australian tour started off as a low-key round of charity functions arranged by people Mary had previously worked with in Australia or Denmark eg Cancer function's president was her first boss, Red Cross is Frederik's official patronage.
Anne Keating (sister of Ex-Autralian Prime Minister Paul) set up the other main event as Anne and Mary are friends following Mary's previous work on the Australian Airline account while at Love Branding (that would be why Paul Keetings daughter Katherine was one of Fred's yacht crew).

Now after that the other states started squaking that they were missing out.
So Tasmania has to have a Chocolate Lovers Ball and Melbourne had to have an event too.
Mary and Frederik didn't shove themselves on an unwanting and uncaring public the Australian Media and Australian Politicians were the ones that pressured the palace to extend this tour.
F&M didn't expect the public to rush up and meet them so meet-and-greets weren't initially part of the plan until people started asking to meet them so they got out and met the public that they were originally thinking wouldn't be that interested in them.

In the end Queensland and South Australia both ended up moaning that they missed out.
Apparantly South Australia is hoping that they will come back to open a wind farm early 07 that is made from mostly Danish materials.

I don't think F&M will ever repeat the 05 tour even if the Australian pollies and media put the pressure on.
They know they have to respect the soverignity of the British Royal Family.

According to BT, Fred and Mary are on holiday... again.

Oh to be royal... such hard work. Two days in Germany must be exhausting for the lovely couple that they needed another vacation to relax.

Is it an actual fact that they do more duties than Mary and Frederik? Could you please provide that evidence, imn not saying you're wrong, i would just like to see it, to back up your statements.

Frederik and Mary do have "real responsibilities" unless you can prove otherwise. I can prove that they do because they have the responsibility of parenthood, and also, their royal duties, no matter how many, they still do it. They represent their country, that is their responsibility.

CrisInaki, I knew you were kidding. I believe we have the same dry, razor sharp wit that some people just don't "get."

Kongehuset vil ikke oplyse, hvor længe kronprinsparret er på skiferie, men kronprins Frederik er regent fra den 25. februar til den 2. marts. Så han er tilbage i Danmark senest på lørdag.
Translation of a portion of the article: The Palace will not disclose where the crown prince crown couple is on their skiing holiday. Frederik is Regent from February 25th until March 2nd. He will return to Denmark on Saturday.

Frederik and Mary have a four-day skiing holiday before getting back to work. I'd say it's more or less like one of us taking a long weekend off to go skiing.

I know, don't worry about it. I understand where you are coming from and I respect your opinion. It's nice to see different takes on the same issue which helps all of us, in the end, open our minds and such.

Back on topic!

Hi Australian,
I just wanted to tell you I really LOVE reading your posts. I like that you are able to agree and disagree in a very mature and non critical way. keep up the good work.I also agree with basically 100% of what you say. Also IMO Letizia and Mary are nothing alike- they are very different. It's like comparing chalk with cheese- there is NO point to it. Mary and Letizia have different backgrounds- they look different and speak different languages.To me Mary appears more confident now and has fit so well into her Royal role.I really like Mary's look and the way she carries herself. I think she is doing a great job.

It's true the South Australian government has writen to Frederik and Mary asking them to open a wind farm in 2007. I heard about it on radio.

Not saying anything against Fred & Mary, just stating what happened in the last visit and porbably would happen again if the Danish PRs are as dumb as last time
