The Style Finder has details about Mary's currently favorite clutches.
- Apparantly she has at least three in different colors. These are from Naledi Copenhagen and costs from 2.000 DKK.
they are made from ostrich skin and made in co-operation with Women Empowerment groups. (Don't know anything about that). Ethically they are labelled a good choice as the birds are all bred for the purpose. (Don't see the difference though, the birds still die and get eaten and what not, oh well...). For more info on the clutches: Naledi Copenhagen - Luxury ostrich bags and accessories

And we have this:

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #50, 2011.
Familiefest på terrassen - Family party on the patio.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Who appears to have read the Australian papers.
I don't know how much has already been covedred, but here we go.

Susan Moody and John Donaldson joined the family on Tasmania.
M&F did not stay in Jane Syephens house this time. Instead they rented in the western part of Hobart. The house is located more disreetly.
And last Sunday M&F gathered the whole family aa well as friends for a party. The weather on that was fairly good, so Mary was wearing a shortsleeved flowery dress. (*)

M&F also visited the east coast of Tasmania for a couple days. Here Mary's uncle (Farbror **) lives, with his wife, Alice.
Some of Mary's cousins also live nearby.

Mary's family are fond of cricket and Frederik attended a match in Tasmanian Cricket Associations' Lounge.

Isabella preferred the local playground and went there Saturday with aunt (moster) Jane.

There is no mentioning in the article about Mary's brother, nor when M&F will leave for Denmark.

(*) I don't believe it's the dress shown in a big picture in the article, because the only credits are BB's own photographer and Twitter. The Twitter pic is with the two girls who posed with Mary).

(**) We have a myriad of names for relatives in Danish, so let's go through some of them again.
Onkel - Uncle in general or someone who has been married into the family.
Farbror - Uncle, father's brother.
Morbror - Uncle, mother's brother.
Tante - Aunt in general or someone who has married into the family.
Moster - Aunt, mother's sister.
Faster - Aunt, father's sister.
Grandtante - Great aunt, the sister of one of your grandparents.
Grandonkel - Great uncle, the brother of one of your grandparents.

Out of curiosity Muhler, why would a great aunt and uncle be addressed as Grandtante and Grandonkel instead of Grandmoster/faster and Grandfarbror/morbror?

As being the singlings of a grandparent they are relations by blood and not by marriage?

Looks like they are about to go home.

I don't know. :ermm: They just are.
Perhaps we've gotten lazy over the last 150 years.
Nephews and nieces are no longer called brordatter/brorsøn or søsterdatter/søstersøn = brother's daughter/brother's son or sister's daughter/sister's son.
The same with grandchildren, they are nowadays just called barnebarn or børnebørn (plural) = child's child.
Beforehand it was dattersøn/datterdatter or sønnesøn/sønnedatter = daughter's son/daughter's daughter or son's son/son's daughter.

Grandtante/grandonkel are bloodrelatives of your grandparent.

Like an aspirin? :tongue:

Madame Royale 12-15-2011 10:05 AM

:previous: Thanks for the quick response. It's all rather interesting.

No aspirin needed :biggrin:

Whow do they Know (Billed Bladet) that crown princess Mary was wearing a shortsleeved flowery dress? Was some of the reporter's invited to the party?
Because i think it´s a little bit strange tha billed bladet, ou some other magazine, having this kind of details and showing no pictures!

Frederik, Mary and children have left Tasmania: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-12-1...50?section=tas

It seems like Frederik travels home with Isabella, while Mary travels with Christian and the small twins.

... and isn't it a Hello-Kitty bag I see on Frederik? :biggrin:

stellad 12-16-2011 10:43 PM

Isabella looks a bit reluctant to leave with Dad. Dad trying to coax her on the plane. Having read about and following the DRF since Fred was a single guy, it's so lovely to see him as a dad of four children.

Lady Rosie 12-16-2011 10:54 PM

Thank you Roskilde. I have been searching local news but no luck for any other reports so far.

I'm sure the family will be glad to go home but it has been lovely to have "borrowed" them from you for a month.

They do Denmark proud.

Could be Isabella's bag.
I don't get why not all 4 children would travel with Mary.

I only see a dad talking/looking at his daughter while walking up to the plane :smile:

They probably could, but why not having some quality time with your daughter?

Me too. I remember Isabella needing some help from a bodyguard going down and those steps are awfully steep, when you've got short legs.
It's been awhile, Stellad. Nice to see you around again. :smile:

I have read in some newspaper that Frederik and Mary don't bring a nanny with them to Tasmania. And my feeling is also that they don't.

So my theory is that Isabella travels with Frederick to relieve Mary a little bit. I can imagine, that a 25 hour flight, with four so small children, can be hard if you only are one parent.

Christian never fly with his dad and the twins are still so small that they need their mother at such a long flight. But Isabella can easily travel with Frederik and have 25 hours with her ​​father's full attention ;)

Do they fly commercial or private/government?

They fly commercial. With a change in Beijing airport.


I know, because my colleague flew at the same plane as Mary and the twins as they flew from Denmark to Australia last month :smile:

First Class I hope. I can't imagine flying with 11month old twins by myself, even on a 2 hour flight, much less 25 hours you say:ohmy:

Why should the mother have all four and the father none of the children. I assume they have reasonable roles among themselves regarding the children and the least Fredrik could do is to take one child. Besides the royal family split up the heirs while travelling. If either plane goes down at least either Fredrik and the third in line is ok or the second in line will be around.

fandesacs2003 12-17-2011 01:51 PM

It is crazy if they did not bring a nany with them! 4 kids in small age and out of their home, their thoys... Very difficult to handle. They should have a help.

FasterB 12-17-2011 02:51 PM

Would a nonroyal parentcouple bring a nanny with them on familiyvacation where they are visiting family? I don´t think so, so why should CP Frederik and CPss Mary?

agami.pearl 12-17-2011 03:02 PM

But earlier they were on official visit. Someone must cared about the twins. Plus C&I came to Australia later, probably with nanny or member of staff.
