Summary of note in Billed Bladet #35, 2016.
Written by Lisbeth Grube.
As you know Mary visited the Copenhagener suburb, Glostrup on the occasion of the town's 825th anniversary.
When the town turned 800, it was a young Frederik who attended and Mary was indeed shown a photo from that occasion.
Anyway, Mary was shown around and exclamations from the audience like: "My, she's beautiful" and "She's bling" was heard.
Inbetween chatting to the locals and appearing in many selfies Mary also got time to look at the calisthenic teams and karate.

As you also know Mary was the one who stood for the unveiling of the new portraits by her and Frederik. Portraits made by the photographer Marco Grobs.
- No, I still don't like the one of Mary, but the one with Frederik is pretty cool.
It was incidentally the first time Mary saw the portraits in full size and she said about her own portrait: "It's difficult to put words to a picture of yourself, but I think he's captured something from both of us - in the much more subdued background I had and the more pomp and circumstance background the portrait of the Crown Prince". (*)
Mary admitted she was a little apprehensive before going to the exhibition.
Marco Grob said about the photo shoots at Amalienborg in April: "The co-operation went extremely well. They are likable, open and very friendly. I was received with a great hospitality at Amalienborg. It was very pleasant.
The pictures were made the same day and it took about an hour and a half for each portrait and the CP-couple did not interfere with the pictures.
They are both very well educated. It's always a pleasure to talk with people who have experienced much and traveled a lot - that we have in common.
The Crown Princess and I have have in common that we both come from a different background and ends up in another world". Marco Grob is working-class background.
BB this week is packed with articles about the DRF and the GRF!
They will be uploaded sometime Saturday in the Mary in Greenland thread.
(*) Allow me to translate freely: My own portrait is... interesting.... The one with Frederik is pretty cool though.
