A beautiful portrait, but it resembles Rachel McAdams more than Mary, especially the eyes.

That´s very nice portrait of Mary. I agree with Artemisia, it realy resembles Rachel McAdams.

Great outfit for Mary but how many portraits of herself has she unveiled in recent times? Its getting a bit much.

AFAIK Mary unveiled 3 portraits of herself, one in April 2006 and 2 this year. Then there is the Australian portrait from 2005 which she did not unveil herself.
As I understand it this portrait was commissioned by the National Museum, just like the one in 2006.

Would it kill someone to paint a traditional court portrait of the Crown Princess?!

This painting is agreeable, but something with an defineable prestige and presence would be wonderful.

For me I see the Aussie portrait as a traditional one but that just me.

You said it. 'Aussie' portrait. It isn't Danish and does not reside in Denmark which is why I think one should be commissioned of Mary at court, dripping in diamonds, with the Order of the Elephant and looking every bit the Crown Princess.

Contemporary art is good, I like it, but it can get a bit 'much' when it's the only style that's being employed.

Thanks for the pics, Iceflower.

I think the artist captured the particular expression Mary has in her eyes well.

It's difficult to explain. Slightly melancholic I'd say and so is the expression in Frederik's eyes, just more melancholic.

You are most welcome as always


A nice surprise:

According to the official calendar the Crown Prince couple was expected to officially attend the International Friendly
between Denmark and Australia at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen today, June 2. But Christian replaced his father
and surely enjoyed it a lot (especially as Denmark has won 2:0 ):

it was stated on the official calendar that Frederik and Mary were going to attend the Denmark vs. Australia soccer game today, June 2nd.

I was on ESPN sports here in the US and they wrote about princess Mary and her loyalty not being tested in front of the Danes since Denmark won 2-0.

"The result ensured that Princess Mary, who was in the crowd at Parken Stadium, did not have to worry about her loyalty being tested in front of her subjects."

i thought this was funny that she was mentioned in a sports article

Mary left the match before the second half because she and Frederik were attend Fritz Schur's 60th birthday party. Christian stayed till the match was over.

Great surprise indeed. Christian must of had a great time. Any idea why Frederik couldn't make it?

I thought Mary would attend the friendly between Denmark and Australia. Of course, Denmark won.

Nice that Christian went along as well and scored a Socceroo's jersey.

Frederik didn't attend Schur's birthday party as well. My guess: he was ill.

Yes, a nice surprise. Christian certainly looked excited when they arrived. Pleased that he was given his own little Socceroos jersey
They just showed Mary on the early news, at the match, she looked lovely.

Maybe it's the way he's dressed but Christian seems so grown up all of a sudden. Hope he had a good time at the game.
