Student Revue

15 March 2008

At 17:00 crown princess Mary attended a Student Revue performance in Copenhagen, in which she was made a member of the Revue.

This independent company, with semiprofessionel or amateur actors works for free. It was named 'Royal Mayestais Acteurs' by King Christian X in the 1920s, when he was active in the Student Society.

She was accompanied by Carina Axelsson and lady-in-waiting, Tanja Doky. Carina & Gustav were staying at Kancellerihuset for prince Joachim's upcoming stag do.

Mary wore a new ring by Marianne Dulong.

She was presented with a membership sash of KMA by the president.

As tradition apparantly dictates, Mary had to be on the stage herself in order to become an honorary member. She had two lines:

Mary: "We have incidentally received the results of the text message vote among the audience".
Actress: "Oh,... What was the result"?
Mary: 120 votes were cast. 100 were blank and 20 said: Don't know".

And she had to answer 2 questions correctly.

Mary was then presented with the ribbon of revue by the president of the student revue, Søren Thorborg.
