Tasmania’s very own royal, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has enrolled in the Danish Home Guard.
The Crown Princess will learn how to handle and fire a weapon, first aid, marching drills, signal training, fire-fighting and rescue skills while she attends elementary training at the Home Guard training centre.
When she finishes her training, Princess Mary will be attached to the Home Guard ‘total defence’ region in Copenhagen.
She continues a long line of family tradition by joining the Home Guard.
Her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe, reached the rank of Major in the Home Guard Women’s Flying Corps.
