Crown Princess Cargo

Something one might expect to see at Cycle Chic, but here is the Crown Princess of Tasmania... uh... Denmark on her Nihola cargo bike riding across the palace square outside Amalienborg, where the royal types live.

The tabloid's headline reads, "Mary on a bike ride. The Princess takes a day off".

Actually, it's the family's cargo bike. The Crown Prince often drops off his kids at kindergarten in it.

One can question whether or not everyday is a day off for a royal. Someone produced this website that tracks the work schedule of Mary's husband, Crown Prince Frederik. Arbejder kronprinsen idag? / Is the Crown Prince working today?

But hey, at least Mary is living the dream and a bicycle is under her Aussie ass while she is doing it. Nice.
