In Denmark she is known as the daughter of the famous journalist and foreign correspondent Claus Toksvik (her mother was British). I read an interview where she said that she tries to remain "unknown" in Denmark because she can be incognito here where she has a summerhouse which she visits about 6 times a year. Though she has not lived in Denmark since she was 6, she still speaks very good Danish.
It is the Queen's traditional December trip to London that has paved the way for Mary's debut.
A couple of days ago the Queen and the Duchess of Gloucester attended a banquet in The Anglo-Danish Society.
Nice pictures. HM looks in good form.
I noticed comedienne and writer Sandi Toksvig sitting to her left on the group portrait and to her right at the dining table. Toksvig (albeit not one of my personal favourites) is a familiar presence on British TV screens but I had no idea she was so prominent in Anglo-Danish circles.
