If you hadn't said anything to Mary, I'm sure you'd have been kicking yourself for a missed opportunity so I'm glad you mustered up the nerve. And that can be intimidating, so I give you a lot of credit. If you can initiate an exchange with royalty, my dear, you can now chat up a storm with everyone under the sun with perfect ease!

Thank you ! I'll have to remember that next time I'm scared of initiating social contact. Though I will say that the fact that I'll most likely never meet this person again had a great deal to do with it. There was very little fear of being judged.

Just repeat the mantra: "I spoke with royalty, I spoke with royalty, I spoke with royalty...." and you'll do fine.

How lucky you were to see and talk with the Princess! It's my opinion that she was on an official function and, while probably surprised to have "ordinary folk" eager to chat with her, she ought to have been (and probably was) prepared for that. So for her to respond to you, however briefly, seems to be the normal thing to do.

She is so gorgeous! and Fred is not bad himself. :)

Don't say that Daria_S.
M&F are in New York reasonably often, so who knows?
You may bump into them on the street again one day.

Daria, thank you for sharing your photos and your experience. I'm so excited for you that you got a chance to talk to CP Mary. What a very special memory to carry with you forever.

There have been a number of articles in NY papers,one in paticular after Mary's vist to Queens has a number of quotes from the children one in paticular from 14 yr old Nzingha Freeman said

"She had a glow on her, she made me feel special too"

Another said among other things "She was so nice"

These first hand accounts tell the real story of these visits, not some doing their best to put their own spin on things.

Thanks for the video! My new acquaintance and I were behind the bushes, trying to get a picture, and were wondering just who was interviewing the couple. Of course we didn't snap any pictures until Mary and Frederik were done talking and started walking again.

Now THAT would be a little awkward, but a treat nonetheless.

Also sweet how Prince Frederik's scarf matches the Princess' sweater
! I often wonder about whether stylists arrange not just their female clients but also the male half of the princely couples. It is indeed quite interesting to see how the various european princes' and princesses often match one anothers colours when out on engagements!

ADDED: A nice gallery from Popsugar: http://www.popsugar.com.au/Princess-...uties-20119045

And a special gallery of M&F dancing: http://www.fabsugar.com.au/Pictures-...ngles-20118042

For whatever reason I can't see the clip, only hear the sound.
Anyway, Politiken has an article about the segment. (Yeah, we do like it when they notice us out in the big world - and say something nice that is ).
http://politiken.dk/politik/ECE14308...ar-er-moderne/ (No pics, just text).

Five million viewers?
A modern CP couple, who has maintained a royal touch. That's a nice review.

How serious is the Today Show? Does it have a political side? Republican or Democrat?

Jacob A. Riss. Was he the photographer who spend years in USA making fantastic and very poigniant black and white portraits of people from the lower or poorer levels of society?
If it's him, they remind me of the photographs made during the Depression.
ADDED: No it wasn't the one I'm thinking of. This is Riis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_riis

Hi Muhler,
The Today Show is a 2 hour daily morning show (7am - 9am) that tackles both serious and soft news. It is on NBC which is one of our major television networks. They try to be unbiased (Republican vs. Democrat) as do most major news organizations over here. The 7am hour is mostly hard news and the 8am hour is more entertainment, cooking, health, etc. It's been around since the 1950s, so you could consider it an American institution. They have actually extended the show for an additional two hours with different hosts to capitalize on the success of the original, but the 7am-9am show is the original. Hope that helps!

That's a nice interview of the royal couple; I'm fascinated to hear Mary speak and note that she does have a strong Australian accent. It's said that she speaks Danish with barely an accent, so she must be getting very proficient at it. And I think this is the first I've heard Fred speak English. They're a charming, stylish couple and are good ambassadors for their country. I'm glad that they're enjoying themselves here in New York and they're getting a warm welcome from the public.
