.... pregnancy announcement a year ago today...

Left, the headline in Mary's Hobart hometown newspaper.

On this day last year it was announced by press release on the Crown Prince Couple's website that Mary was pregnant.

Announcement from TRH The Crown Prince and Crown Princess

Issued Monday April 25, 2005

Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and The Crown Princess are happy to announce that The Crown Princess is expecting to give birth to a child by the end of October this year.

The childbirth is expected to take place at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen (Copenhagen University Hospital).

P. Thornit
Chief of the Court of
TRH The Crown Prince and
Crown Princess of Denmark

We can calculate that Mary was pregnant (by some few weeks) when she arrived in Australia on 25 February 2005. In addition to many engagements in Denmark, Mary went on a trip to Thailand (tsunami memorial and Danish aid) and to Expo 2005 in Japan before the announcement was made. The announcement came while Frederik was in Greenland with his mother the Queen. Mary was meant to be with them but stayed at home as she was by that time more than three months pregnant. Here is a selection of photos of Mary during her pregnancy-- another request from our readers. The last photo in the series was taken the day before Mary went into labour.
