Royal visit’s no mere whim
Saturday, 19th November, 2011
The countdown to Crown Mary Princess of Denmark’s visit to Broken Hill is on and while her stay will be brief, it should be one to remember.
The princess will arrive on Friday and spend two hours at the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) base before heading back to Melbourne.
Organiser of the trip, the chairman of charity group RFDS of Australia, Friends in the United Kingdom, Marina Ritossa, said that Princess Mary had for years been very interested in the Flying Doctor and in visiting the outback.
“I met the princess a number of years ago and developed a bit of a relationship,” Ms Ritossa said.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark will visit Broken Hill in less than two weeks.
In a major coup for the city, Princess Mary is expected to visit here on Friday November 25.
A spokesman for the Danish Embassy in Canberra confirmed Princess Mary would travel to Broken Hill.
“We are not able to make any further comment than to confirm that Broken Hill is on the royal itinerary,” the spokesman said.
