Baptizing "Gudrun Mærsk"

7 May 2005

Frederik and Mary accepted the invitation to baptize the container ship "Gudrun Mærsk" in Odense - at that time the largest container ship in the world.

They were personally guided around the ship by the then 92 year old Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, the richest man in Denmark and close allie of the royal family.

Also at this event were Mary's Australian friends Amber Petty, Hamish Campbell and his fiancée Genevieve Taubman. They had come over to Denmark to visit Mary.

Hamish Campbell has been a close friend of Mary since they met at Hobart University. He's godfather to prince Christian, and with his wife Genevieve he's regularly visited Mary in Denmark and France (Cayx). He lives in Sydney and is the owner of Exton Investment. In March 2007 he got married to Genevieve Taubman. She's the co-owner of The Mint Partners, a lifestyle communications agency. The couple have 2 sons: James and ???
