Love the one with 4 kids and 1 dog.

Wow, I absolutely love the photo of them going up the stairs with arms around each other, and that gaze! I also love the family shot. Beautiful.

Thank you for the link Ricarda.:flowers:

Danish members: The reporter directly from Copenhagen - is she Danish?

Nice find, Roskilde. :smile:

Never heard of her.

TV2 or DR1 perhaps?

I'd like to ask our Australian friends how much coverage M&F's anniversary gets in the press and what kind of press?
A note on page 16 or a more prominent feature?

amber congratulated too :)

Appearing on Seven’s The Morning Show, Petty added: “They are beautiful photos and they are a beautiful family, and I miss them as anyone would living sort of on the other side of the world from people you care about.”

All this celebration is of course because of what happened exactly 10 years ago ...
BT has created a 41 pictures long gallery with the best pictures from F&M's wedding.

Worth to click through - large, delightful pictures from the big day:

Se billederne fra Frederik og Marys bryllup: Her sagde de ja til hinanden | www.bt.dk

Some kind words from Nicole Kidman to her former countryman Mary: "Crown Princess Mary has done it so well"

Nicole Kidman: Kronprinsesse Mary har klaret sig så godt - Underholdning | www.bt.dk

Nicole Kidman: Kronprinsesse Mary har klaret sig så godt - Kultur | www.b.dk

The Australian superstar Nicole Kidman sent a greeting to our Mary from the Cannes Film Festival.

With this famous Cinderella story was it the obvious choice for the media to ask Nicole Kidman on whether Australia's own 'Grace Kelly', Mary Elizabeth Donaldson, has given the Australian people a different view of what it means to be a royal.

"I don't actually think it has changed our perception of what it means to be royal. I think the general attitude is: 'Wow - so good for her!'. Mary has certainly reminiscent of Grace Kelly even though she of course isn't a movie star."

'Mary came from what we probably in Australia will call the upper middle class, and I think she has handled the upheaval in the most beautiful possible way. I've seen pictures of her and her Danish family, her husband and her children, and it's such a beautiful Family." And continuing...

"Mary came from what we in Australia probably will call the upper middle class, and I think she has coped with the upheaval in the most beautiful possible way. I've seen pictures of her and her Danish family, her husband and her children, and they're such a beautiful family."

"I don't think it was written anywhere in the stars that it would necessarily succeed. But she has done it so well."

Love the one of all 4 kids with Ziggy, in a way Ziggy was their first "child"
Christian the oldest with his arm around his youngest sibling Josephine

I love that they gave us official new ones and shared some others, not previously seen from the past years and wedding.

The joy and happiness in Mary's face (this is when she was pregnant with the twins) and a lovely kiss from Frederik

I love that first one. Looks right out of a fairytale.

What beautiful pictures. Just lovely. So, so, lovely. I have no words. These pictures say it all.

I don't know the reporter so maybe she was from a DK network?

Re: coverage here. I don't get tabloid papers or watch commercial TV (I'm boring I know!) but I do check the news websites and there has been a smattering of coverage.

The largest coverage was in the two main weekly magazines - a 16 page booklet in one and several pages in another. I linked to these and included quotes from Leanne Donaldson in TRF thread "Mary on Magazine covers" just last week. The websites of the magazines have galleries too.

Hi Muhler, I will add a little to Lady Rosie's post.

The link below is from the Queensland daily newspaper, I don't think it has previously been posted. The printed version on the 15th had a little photo of Mary on the front page advising that the report was on page three. A different article than the one below (I cannot find it online) was on page three and included the photo of Mary and Frederik on the stairs. Also saw a small report on the afternoon national news broadcast on the 14th also on Sunrise the morning breakfast show on channel Seven.
If you click on the option Prince Frederik and Princess Mary celebrates it will show the picture of the family and not Amber.

All the photos are beautiful, love the one with Ziggy. The children are adorable. They say happy parents make for happy children so I would say the parents are really happy as these kids are always a happy little group.

Muhler 05-16-2014 04:56 AM

Thanks Lady Rosie & Marfre :flowers:

That's a pretty good coverage considering that the DRF is on the other side of the world and that you now have your own BRF-stars in the shape of W&K (not to forget wee George).

Tarlita 05-16-2014 06:24 PM

It is true that Australians appreciate their British royal family, but Crown Princess Mary will always be special in our hearts as she was born here. Most Australians love to hear news of Mary and how she is getting on in Denmark. Those of us who follow her movements are very proud of her and for me I now think of her as being Danish. All my friends love to see photos of the special looks shared between Fred and Mary.

what comes to mind is have you looked at the photo of josephine .. it's mary all the way!!

https://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...lupsdag-10.img

It really is. The eyes, the smile, the cheeks. Bella on the other hand is simply a replica of Frederik! Those blue eyes...

Christian is grandfather John, Vincent is a mix, such a gentle adorable boy.

that is such a great comparison picture. Isabella continues to be Frederik's clone.
And Josephine is a mini-Mary

Vincent and Christian have a mix of both, with Christian beginning to look more like Frederik every year.

I think Prince Vince is THE most adorable little royal. There's something about his haircut, his innocent-looking cherub face that is so sweet. Princess Isabella has a look about her that makes me think she is a little spitfire and if she's not already, will give her parents an interesting time when she is an adolescent!

MidwestMom 05-16-2014 08:49 PM

Love all of the new pictures, especially the ones of the children. Vincent IS adorable, but I think that beneath that sweet innocent face, there is a mischievous nature. I'm the mother of sons, and I know that look!

redtulip 05-16-2014 09:07 PM

The pictures are excellent, and it's good to see Ziggy, too!

HereditaryPrincess 05-17-2014 02:20 PM

I loved all the photos, and thought that it was nice of them to release unseen photos from the previous years, too. I think my favourites are these: one, two and three. I also like this collage of Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine:

And this photo of the family in 2011, I love Vincent's chubiness:

Jacqueline Mary Johncock, formerly Donaldson, flew to Copenhagen in May 2004, along with 32 Tasmanian relatives to meet their new Denmark family and watch their "little cousin" get married.

Mary born to be a princess | The Examiner

Some few words from her:

Mrs Johncock said the family had remained close.

"We do speak to her and keep in touch and she's no different today than the day she got married. She loves it there and couldn't be happier. And Frederik's just amazing ... he loves her dearly. They have a very good relationship."

MaggieDenmark 05-18-2014 10:34 AM

when we talk about how the kids resemble their parents.. i see josephine has ...opposed christian,isabella,vincent..pretty dark eyes..they are certainly not blue as the three others so blue eyes..maybe she will end up with brown eyes as mary :)

https://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/...lupsdag-10.img

HereditaryPrincess 05-18-2014 10:39 AM

:previous: Yes I think the same. When I was looking at the photos again the other day, I noticed that Josephine's eyes were darker than those of her siblings. I have a feeling that she'll resemble Mary a lot as she gets older. She's so adorable.

Archduchess Zelia 05-18-2014 11:12 AM

Josephine's eyes look greyish-blue to me, more so here than on the single photo of her. But I am also quite certain that saturation was used on all of the anniversary pictures and that could darken them. But none of the children beat Bella's very blue eyes – she truly is a carbon copy of Frederik, that one.
