Mary & the family arrived at Graasten in their red Saab station car for the annual family gathering. They arrived when Margrethe, Benedikte, Richard, Alexandra von Berleburg and her children Ingrid and Richard were watching the changing of the guard in front of a small crowd.
The family immediately went to the stables to check on the horses and on Christian's pony.
In 2009 the annual photo op at Graasten was cancelled. The previous year, Mary & family did not show up because they were angry at the press for having taken and published pictures of Christian playing naked on the beach.
