Not the Kind of "Surprise" in the New Year I Saw Coming from a Royal Palm Beach Swim

I wrote a post on December 27th, 2017, about Princess Mary swimming at Palm Beach, which is the location that the Australian television drama 'Home and Away' is filmed at -
(Queen) Mary Christmas and a Surprise in the New Year?
I had brought up 'Home and Away'  in that post for a number of reasons, first because the Princess of Denmark was swimming at the beach made famous by the TV show with her family and in many ways not even the script writers of that TV show could have written a believable script about a young lady who grew up in Tasmania becoming a member of the Royal Family of Denmark, secondly I mentioned 'Home and Away' to ponder just who the Princess would be cheering for come the World Cup when Australia will have to play Denmark in their group.
I wondered who would be the Princess's home/away team when match day arrived.
The surprise in the New Year I was referring to was that rumours were flying around that the Princess could actually become the Queen of Denmark in 2018, if the current Queen stepped down like the rumours were saying she might.

for the first time in nearly 50 years
Also with me being a lifelong Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks fan and seeing the Harold Holt news article about it being 50 years since Holt went missing in the ocean, and the old saying about waiting for Cronulla to win a premiership is like leaving the porch light on for Harold Holt, I had to bring up the dangers of going out too far in the surf when I saw a news story about the Princess being in the surf again just as I was writing the post.
After finishing my post with joking that I would need a really powerful light to leave on before Australia ever won a World Cup final, I posted it and then a few hours later I saw Jessica Falkholtan actress from the 'Home and Away' TV show was involved in a bad accident on the Princes Highway.
"The Princes Highway as a named route came into being when pre-existing roads were renamed ‘Prince's Highway’ after the visit to Australia in 1920 of the Prince of Wales (later to become
King Edward VIII and, after abdicating, the Duke of Windsor)."
I added the story as an update thinking how bizarre that in the 30-year Home and Away clip I used in the initial post that there was a car crash in it and Jessica would have no doubt filmed scenes on that beach the Princess was swimming in with the Prince of Denmark and the accident happened on a highway named the Princes Highway.
Unfortunately, the updates to this darkly synchronistic road accident kept getting worse, until today when six days after Jessica's life support getting turned off Jessica passed away right on the 30th anniversary date of 'Home and AwayTV show.
Jessica Falkholt’s death falls on the same day Home and Away marks 30 years on screens

That whole accident is so sad, but at the same time so eerily WTF(?) bizarre. 
Not the fairy-tale ending I was hoping for when writing about the Princess and the New Year.
It's also the night of the New Micro Moon today, so it's not off to a good start leading up to the Super Blue/Blood Moon coming at the end of the month -
From Micro New Moon to Super Blue/Blood Moon?


  1. It's just dawned on me that Australia, being a member of the Commonwealth, you don't have your own Royal Family (it's the British Royal Family, but of course, you share it with the whole of the Commonwealth). So Princess Mary is the closest thing Australia have to your own, uniquely Australian, Royal Family.

  2. Not really, because the British Royal Family are our Royal Family.
    When I was going to school the national anthem of Australia was 'God Save the Queen', the same as England's.
    We now have 'Advance Australia Fair' as the national anthem, but nothing else has changed.
    The Queen of England's head is on all of our coins still.
    Princess Mary is all over the media here and the Aussies like the Danes, but Aussies will never see her as our queen.
    She'll just be seen as an Aussie who happens to be the Queen of Denmark.
    Apart from the British Royal Family, the closest thing Australia would have to a royal family would be a guy named Molly Meldrum and he would be both our king and queen.
    That's a joke only Australians would get probably and might be a bit hard for me to explain if you don't get it :-)
