250.000? That sounds a bit too much for one royal day

A couple of trivia from BB of Mary's visit to the flower festival in Odense.

She wore a pearl wrist band from Marianne Dulong.

She was twenty minutes late due to a traffic accident, as such she got a police escort part of the way to Odense to get through the traffic.

She said upon leaving the festival: "It's been a super beautiful flower arrangement. A gorgeous day with sweet smelling and colorful flowers. An altogether fantastic day".

Mary svømmede Christiansborg rundt - dr.dk/Nyheder/Kultur
Mary has today been swimming in the canals around the Parliament in Copenhagen. A distance of 2.000 meters.
She started around 11.00 and took about 35 minutes.
This was an excersize intiatiative called Christiansborg Rundt - Around Christiansborg Slot, (the seat of the Parliament). Few recogniced Mary among the swimmers who took part.

Our newsdiggers can find more at sn.dk.

Gotta go, we are expecting guests.

Hard to identify Mary, all swimmers looked alike But besides that it's really great that she has taken up that challenge!

Very cool! I think I remember Mary saying she'd like to take part in this event, when she first visited it a few years ago.

Mary was in the first group of altogether 993 participants.

Next to her swam a former top-swimmer, Mette Jacobsen, who is labelled Mary's swimming-partner, suggesting that she and Mary practise together.

Frederik of course routinely swam more than two kilometres in the Frogman Corps, often in four man teams dragging a container with weapons and equipment with them. - Before hitting the shore and starting the mission in earnest.
I guess if he wasn't sailing right now, he might very well have taken part as well.



A few details more on Mary's swim.
BT has been talking to Mette Jacobsen who has been coaching Mary.

Ingen genkendte Mary i kanalerne - Royale | www.bt.dk

Pic: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...nalsvmning.jpg

Apparantly few if any noticed Mary at all during the swim yesterday.
Mette Jacobsen: "It was really mostly me who was recogniced I think. But as we also talked about (with the reporter presumably), you are sort of used to seeing me in that outfit, while you are perhaps to so used to seeing the Crown Princess walking around in a wetsuit, bathing cap and goggles.
It has surprised me that we have been able to go anywhere without being recogniced. When we trained at Furesøen (large lake north of Copenhagen), there were really no one who noticed us. But of course I don't know how many who have seen us. But it wasn't anything that caused a commotion or made people line up with mobilephones and take pictures".

Apart from the lake, they also trained at sea in Oresound, between Denmark and Sweden. (*)

(*) No, I don't think they swam all the way to Sweden, eventhough the distance at Kronborg is only six kilometres. It happens however that elks defect from Sweden and swim across too seek freedom in Denmark.

Great job, Mary! That's really impressive and Mette Jacobsen is an excellent swimmer to have by your side. 35 minutes is not a bad time at all.

Thanks for the extra info Muhler!

It's great that people can apparently swim safely in natural waters in DK. Here in Belgium the water's often too polluted!

BTW I'd love to see an elk swim across

You are welcome, Hannelore & Daria

Yes, Copenhagen is justifiably proud of the clean water in the harbour, which is now safe to bathe in. Indeed the harbour has evolved into a very popular resort for Copenhageners plus that you avoid the surf and creeping cold of the open beaches.

Elks try from time to time to swim across to DK, alas, if they don't drown, they usually die from exhaustion shortly after reaching the shore. Often in combination with stress when they find out that there are even more humans and cars and noise on the Danish side, than on the Swedish side they left.
Those very very few that survive end up being shot or captured. Because while red deers thrive very well, northern Zealand is no place for an elk weighing at least a quarter of a ton.
Not all tales end well.....
