Hi everyone.

Just got home after seeing Mary

A big, lovely experience to see her in real life.

I think we were about 40-50 people and we got us some nice small talk while we waited. About our Crown Princess as well. And I can only say, Mary's popularity among people can't be denied.

I had a good talk with two police officers as well.

Finally Mary arrives and a little girl, Olivia, is brave and walks with her tiny legs and a red rose in her hand past all in the crowd and gives Mary her rose. The little girl talks and talks and Mary smiles and answers all she can.

Daughter, niece and I all got a smile, eye contact and a wave.

Nice experience to see and hear her "live". It's certainly not the last time we will do that.

I have noticed that many say this and now I'll say it too. For the heck, she's beautiful! She is beautiful in pictures, but they can't describe her in the reality. She looks radiant and her brown eyes sparkles when she looks at you.

Thanks Roskilde for sharing.
It is always good to have someone on the spot and to have their insights and pictures.

Mary looks lovely and from information that I have read on the exhibition it is one that I would like to visit.

I wonder how come a lady-in-waiting was not with CP Mary? I did not see Caroline Heering or Tanja Dorky? Instead, a man in uniform (adjutant) accompanied CP Mary. I wonder what is the significance of that?

Thank you Roskilde for your on the spot reporting! when I saw her in NYC a few years ago she appeared to have very rosy cheeks, an awful lot of blush, which didn't look like a lot in the pictures of the event. Did you notice the same thing?

Dear Roskilde:

Many Thank You's for all the lovely pictures of Mary, it great to see someone who actually was there and really saw her. She looks so beautiful in her pictures and how could she be more so in person.............your so lucky to have such a charming young woman who represents your country around the world.

Two reasons, I believe.
Normally if Mary's LiW, Tanja Doky, is unavailable she would bring her secretary, as you point out.
Recently and more and more often Mary has instead (or also) brought an adjutant.
So firstly this could be for practical reasons for a relatively simple and short visit where an adjutant will be a sufficient personal assistant.

Secondly, M&F don't have personal adjutants, they borrow one from QMII's staff af adjutants. So it is also IMO a subtle indication of how much M&F have taken over. The Regent Couple are almost constantly accompanied by an adjutant. And now quietly, so are M&F. At least when on the job.
It's only natural, as M&F have practically taken over in most functions, except those where the Monarch is directly required.

I'm fully aware of that

Thank you SElizabeth, and to all other for your kind replies. I got some good pictures, although I remembered to enjoy the moment without looking through a camera lens

And no, no lady-in-waiting this time. Muhler, good explanation.

I had me a good chat with some journalists as well. Included BB's Marianne Singer. Nice woman. She told a lot that I will post here in the thread over the next few days.

Busy as always, Mary has two event this noon.

First Mary will participates as a patron of the 'School for 200 years' anniversary at the 'Schools Song days' in the Concert Hall in DR Byen:

Se og Hør gives us the first picture and article

Tanja Doky is Mary's secretary. And her LIW.

You are right, I forgot that Caroline Heering works for the Mary Foundation.

I'm joining the chorus who are thanking Roskilde for her wonderful photos. It looks like you managed to get quite close to Mary, and your photos were very sharp and clear. It's nice to hear that Mary gave you and your family a little wave and smile. I know that it's a lovely feeling to get that from a royal - I remember getting a wave from Elizabeth II during her Jubilee Tour of England.

The following mixed gallery contains some more pics of the exhibition opening in Roskilde (the other pics are of the Find the Way Day event and of yesterday's event concerning the 200th anniversary of the Danish public school that is discussed in the patronage thread).

My thanks also to Roskilde for the very clear photos of the magical Viking ship museum! I was lucky enough to visit during a trip to Copenhagen a few years ago and will never forget this wonderful place that so dramatically tells the story of the Norsemen!
