Princess Mary and Prince Frederik Make a Stop in Canberra


It was a short and sweet visit when Princess Mary and Prince Frederik of Denmark made their way to Canberra yesterday. Mary and Frederik were met by Governor-General Quentin Bryce, and headed to Parliament House for a Green Growth seminar and luncheon with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, and other guests. During a stop at the Portrait Gallery, Mary met with artist Jiawei Shen, who painted a portrait of the princess, while hundreds of fans waited in the rain to catch a glimpse of the Danish royals outside the Arboretum. Some children didn’t recognise Mary, who understood their confusion and said, “Sometimes I don’t look so much like a princess. People normally expect a big dress.” Mary chose a dark floral dress for the day, which also included a visit to the Australian War Memorial. Mary and Frederik are now in Melbourne, and they will spend four days in Victoria.
