Day 3: Official State Visit in Australia

October, 26th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary is on a official state visit in Australia from 23th to 28th of October to attend some of the celebrations activities in addition to the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House.

  • 11:30 am. Visiting the Twin Registry at Sydney Children's Hospital and is presented to the place of current research and talking with twins from the register which Crown Princess Mary recently became patron of. 
  • 1:15 pm. The Crown Prince couple attended the launch of eSmart Digital License at Margaret Martin Library in Sydney.

Both Frederik and Mary were in a excellent mood when they in the morning visited the Twin Registry at Sydney Children's Hospital. The hospitals children made the royal couple smile from the second they arrived. They were met by two couple of twins handing over large bouquet of flowers, on to each of them; Mary's was pink roses and Frederik got purple flowers. The pictures really made me smile, true happiness! I am sure they had a great time with all the twins, you know our favourite royal couple have a pair at home in Denmark so they know how it is, how attached they can be etc. Maybe they see similarities on the twins behavior? Frederik and Mary were also presented the current research there are on this area and got the opportunity to talk with several couple of twins from the register. Before the couple flew to Australia Mary became patron of The Australian Twins Register and The Danish Twins Register, another reason for them to make the time to visit the Sydney Children's Hospital and members of the Twin Registry. All children were dressed beautifully, most of them in the same or matching clothes, a picture were taken with the royal couple as a special day to remember. I was quite amazed when I took a closer look because the children look so much alike, not just clothes. Take a look and you'll see. Of course this all depends on whether the children are monozygotic or fraternal. Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine are fraternal and that's why they do not look exactly the same as many of these kids do.

In the afternoon, Frederik and Mary attended the launching of the eSmart Digital License at Margaret Martin Library in Sydney. This eSmart Digital License is created by The Alannah and Madeline Foundation which Mary has worked with several times before. And if I'm correct Mary created the Mary Foundation after the principals from The Alannah and Madeline Foundation. It's like the Australian Mary Foundation. eSmart Digital License is invented to improve internet security and preventing bullying online by 10+ children and adolescents. It is created by cyber safety  experts, technologists and teacher to balance between learning and fun. With just as much time as earlier the same day, the couple gave every second to the children at Margaret Martin Library. They watch how the program work and how easily the children manage to learn. 

So on the third day Mary shone in yet another design from Collette Dinnigan (Summer/Spring 2013) featuring a wonderful embroidered grape vine print in light blue and creamy white colour. The dress features so many lovely details like around the neck. Beautiful design! The silver lurex cardigan is an old one from Ann Taylor. She has worn it at multiple other occasions with several different dresses, the plain and colourful. I really like both of them, but separated I would prefer. The model you see in the link below is in coral, maybe the silver cardigan and the coral dress would have been a better match? By the way the dress was identified by the great Kate! Her dark brown hair was looses with wavy ends and her make up was done very simple - matching brown eyeshadow and pale pink lips. To this summer-in-Australia-look Mary chose beige accessories from Christian Louboutin and Chanel. Funny thing; the Chanel handbag is really old and was seen worn by her in some of the first photos we got of Mary from when she was on her way to Denmark from an Australian airport. You remember it? Now the bag is back! Earrings and bracelets are the only thing I still need to tell you about. Marianne Dulong is the designer of both earrings and two of the bracelet, and Shamballa Jewels is the other designer when we talk about bracelets. Well not a bad day if you ask me but I really look forward to the next couple of days. Don't you?
