You must realise that internationally speaking, the interest for the Danish RF is a lot smaller than for any of the other RF's. Two years ago (or was it three already? Time flies) the Dutch RF visited Macho Picchu in Peru. Considering that this is a big tourist place, it was quite amazing that there were only a couple of pictures and only because several Dutch tourists were there as well.

I doubt the amusement park is a big draw for Danish/ European tourists who might have recognized the couple and their children. So it is very believable that they were unnoticed. Also the continental RF's travel with less security officers than the BRF which makes their entourage smaller. So for outsiders who don't know the Danish royals, they might have looked like a big family; several siblings and a few children.

^Yes, although the fact that Mary is Australian raised the DRF's profile, and certainly it was big news in Australia.   If there were no interest at all, then how was a print story generated, but no photo?   It is curious.

Perhaps someone let it slip afterwards, someone from management hoping it will boost the visitor numbers.

Or another guest who had the grace not to take any pictures of them but did mention it afterwards. God knows I would never take pictures from famous people in a more or less private setting and I hope more people have that sophistication.

The family are still up in Queensland apparently, on the Gold Coast (beaches and sunshine.) This time there are photos. Mary and co. indulging in some retail therapy!

I think most people in the western world are 'indulging' in retail therapy at the moment...it is called Christmas shopping and as I have just returned from my last present-hunt for the season I can tell you...it wasn't very therapeutic  sigh

^ No, I know the feeling! There aren't many shops at the marina, however, not ones suitable for a lot of Christmas shopping, unless Mary was going to buy beachwear or accessories for someone. I think she and Amber and the girls were just ambling along, seeing what was in the shops.

Thanks. Obviously you are more familiar with that particular mall. In the malls I usually frequent, there are all kinds of shops, including perfect shops for Christmas shopping.
I take it this was more a mall for clothes. Perhaps the girls needed some new summer clothes, they are hard to buy in Europe at the moment and both are at an age that they can grow out of a clothing size within a month or two-three.

Channel 7 news just reported down here in Melbourne that Prince Christian was caught in a dangerous rip off a Gold Coast beach and had to be rescued by a lifesaver.

It seems that Christian gets into dangerous situations in Australia.    Perhaps he should stay home.     blink    blink    blink

 Mary and Frederick and co are now in Byron Bay, a lovely little town on the New South Wales coast. They are having a reunion with Mary's siblings and extended family.

Caught out to lunch...

^Somehow, I don't think this is where Mary wants to be at Christmas.   Her body language is stiff and she is not smiling as are others around her.  I hope the children are having fun.

Wow...you can say that from one picture? That is amazing.

All I see is someone who is either listening intent to the person sitting opposite of her or someone whose thoughts are temporarily drifted away, and that is quite a normal thing to happen during long family lunches.

^ No, rather from all of the photos taken of Mary on this trip, and the fact that there are few photos taken on this trip.   She enjoys cameras and normally would be leaning in/turning to any cameras in the vicinity.  She seems down and not her usual self.  Therefore, I don't think she is happy.

This whole trip feels a bit strange, doesn't it?  She isn't known to hide when in Australia and usually welcomes the cameras. In the past, she's shown up at big markets or events and had no problem being photographed.

The denials about the seriousness of the swimming incident aren't doing them any favors. Someone saved their child and they're pretending the lifeguard and crew are exaggerating.  Could have been handled much better. They probably have another week in Australia before they return for the big 2-night New Year event in Denmark.

^ I don't think they are returning to Denmark until after the New Year -- which makes this trip even more curious.    dontknow

They will definitely return to Denmark before New Years Eve for the simple reason that on January 1 the Queen always hosts her traditional New Years Reception, which is a big gala event and the couple has never missed that.
This New Years reception is like the UK Troooping the Colour...missing it is not an option.

And I seriously doubt the couple will fly into Copenhagen on January 1 and rush to the reception, jet-lagged and all. So they will return to Denmark before December 31. And probably already the Sunday or Monday after Christmas.

Mary goes zen at Byron Bay. She also had a cup of coffee in another town and was only recognised because Christian was with her, (after the near-drowning incident.)

^ Yeah, I've posted the main news reports, as they've come up each day with their selection of photos (or not). The party weren't really photographed in WA. I think I've posted the article that featured Fred's selfie in Western Australia early on, and Mary with her friends in the Buddhist gardens are below.
