CROWN PRINCE FREDERIK AND PRINCESS MARY OF DENMARK ON AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO AUSTRALIA

As the King and Queen of Bhutan have ended their official state visit to Japan and have flown from Osaka, Japan back to Bhutan, another official royal visit has begun.  This time it is Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark who are on an official visit to Australia, Mary’s native land.  The couple met there in 2000 during the Sydney Olympics.   The last time the couple paid an official visit to the land down under was in 2008.  Frederik and Mary on their first day visited the Sculpture by the Sea exhibit in Sydney’s Bondi Beach where they chatted briefly with the crowds.   They also went to Customs House and  hopped on energy-generating bikes to make themselves smoothies.  Later at the Garden Island naval base, the royal couple attended a reception with guests from the Danish business community.   During a visit to Australia’s Governor General, Quentin Bryce, Frederik and Mary brought out their twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine and posed for photographs.
