Princess Mary presents fellow Aussies with student award

2 OCTOBER 2007

There was a reminder of home for Crown Princess Mary this week as she met up with two Australian exchange students in the Danish capital.

The pretty royal was presenting a scholarship to Sam Christensen - from the princess' native Tasmania - and Phoebe Downing, both of whom had applied to study at the University of Copenhagen.

The award - entitled The Crown Princess Mary Scholarship - was set up by the university as a wedding present to Mary and Crown Prince Frederik.

Now in its third year, it provides financial assistance to students from partner universities in Australia. Successful applicants receive the equivalent of £950 towards their living costs while studying.
