word-ish-less Wednesday . . . 'the day we met Crown Princess Mary of Denmark'

Greetings all,
Well you asked who was next . . . after my brush with Queen Elizabeth II last month & my dash with President Obama last week . . . the answer Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. 
 Official flag raising . . .
 we winged it in the rain after school & scored prime position . . .
 she arrived . . .
 over to meet the cheering crowds!!
 General Cosgrove hosting the whos who this year at his War Memorial, chatting away to Crown Prince Frederik who is Navy Frogman. 
 Can totally see why she fell for him.
 The hat . . .
 chatting & shaking hands with each of my 4 children!!
 She was so delightful, so gracious & . . . so excited that the lady next to me (who leant me her umbrella) had brought Fruit Tingles - her favourite Australian lolly!!
 People mover had baby seats, but not their adorable twins, sigh.
 All over, off again & Frederik waved to my son again!!
Wordless Wednesdays over at Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love, sorry, as always, i'm a tad over excited about yet another once-in-a-lifetime-experience!!  Love Posie

Brenda @ Mira Narnie said...

oh i love Princess Mary and Prince Fredrick - i am insanely jealous!!! She is just too gorgeous for words, and well, you said it, Fredrick is a hunk xx

Posie Patchwork said...

Yes, FRUIT TINGLES. Apparently years ago on Andrew Denton, she said she missed Fruit Tingles - can't imagine how that translated into Danish, sugary fruit flavoured disc lollies?? She was so thrilled to get a bag of them saying "oh you remembered, thank you so much". Love her!!
I don't want to say they are normal, parents of 4 children, school runs, as they are royalty & that is magic, but gosh they are in touch & so prepared to meet we regular folk!!
Thanks for sharing in my excitement, love Posie

Cherry Red Quilter said...

Oh well done - I was going to send you and email and check if you had seen her seeing as I figured you were on a roll! Lucky girl - I think she is my favourite of all the celebs you have met, well, maybe a draw with the Queen. And how wonderful for your children too. Well done! happy day!

Posie Patchwork said...

Oh yes, papa papa-artzi (thanks Lady GaGa) but would much prefer royals & world leaders over the likes of a teen pop sensation. Now i just feel old. Canberra is definitely rocking lately.
Can you see the detail in Mary's cardi, tiny ruffles, she can wear anything that girl!! Love Posie

ally said...

wow wow wow - lucky Posie family!!!


Last time Mary was in Tassie she visited my daughter's school - Lil gave Isabella a bee she had made in art :-)

Jane said...

Oh Jennie. Giggling in Hobart. Seeing Mary now is a world away from our days at law school at UTAS! J x

Magi said...

Did you let her know that you were a mum of 4 too, with twins as well? Thanks for sharing - it is exciting.

Posie Patchwork said...

Oh yes, i said "meet my twins" & she smiled then looked confused, as of course, they were standing on each end of my big & little children!! I'm still beaming, what a treat. Just goes to show, you never know where that totally hot guy in a club or bar might end up taking you in life!! Or how many babies you'll end up having. My doctor brother said she had her twins naturally, oh la la, like me, funny i didn't raise the discussion on vaginal deliveries, not in polite company. Love Posie

Mama of 2 boys said...

How fantastic Posie! What wonderful photos. Yet another special moment you've captured. I bet your little ones were stoked!? I really love Mary. I think she seems like a beautiful person and a beautiful Mama. Very proud of our Australian girl :o) xo
