Title: Princess Marie has become patron of the aids fundation
Post by: HC on December 03, 2011, 05:34:13 pm
Princess Marie has become patron of the AIDS Foundation.

The AIDS Foundation is working to combat HIV and AIDS in Denmark and in the hardest-hit areas in the world.

 - As patron Princess Marie can help to focus on those areas, AIDS Foundation works with. We are very grateful that the princess has chosen to support our efforts to combat a disease that is still shrouded in taboo and which cost 1.8 million lives each year, says Henriette Laursen, director of AIDS Foundation.

 In Denmark prejudices still hit hard, and many HIV-infected people do not dare tell their relatives about the disease.
 
 - I hope the patronage could help to break down the prejudices that make many people with HIV live in loneliness and fear of others' reactions. At the same time I want to support the AIDS Foundation's focus on research in medicine that can help future generations to grow up without HIV and AIDS, says Princess Marie.

Princess Marie lazies it through life as a princess of Denmark

She is just figurehead
Princess Marie is doing half as much as eksprincess Alexandra
By Christian BækholmTirsdag 20th September 2011 10:58.

Although royals seldom works hard for the Danes, the Princess Marie, however, takes the prize as the most lazy.

B.T. has made an overview of how many protectorates Marie, Mary and Alexandra each have, and there is Marie at the bottom. Even eksprincess Alexandra has twice as many duties as the current princess Møgeltønder.

Read also: Marie does not want to speak Danish

More precisely, the Countess Alexandra 13 protectorates. Princess Mary has as many as 26, while Marie can only boast of 7 of its kind.

Marie however, has recently received the position as patron of the Danish Refugee Council. A task that experts believe will help her image. Many Danes feel namely sympathy with the organization.

- Therefore, Princess Marie is nearer to play her role and not just be a figurehead who does not really have tasks, says Sørensen, lecturer in history at the University of Copenhagen, BT

Although Countess Alexandra is no longer a part of the Danish royal family, she has still 13 patronages and six honorary member. Princess Marie has only seven on her list.

With DCA as the newest.
It is very attractive to get one of the royal family members as patron. Therefore, it is surprising that a former member of the Danish royal family has almost twice as many patronage and honorary member creates, as a current member.

ALSO READ: Marie is the overlooked princess

This is the case with Prince Joachim's former and current wife.

Countess Alexandra has namely kept her patronages after divorce. Additionally Launches Countess Alexandra annual breast cancer month in October.

For comparison prinsessse Marie had only seven patronages after she married Prince Joachim in May 2008.

See Countess Alexandra patronages here

See Princess Marie patronages here

See Crown Princess Mary patronages here

- It does happen often, when there is a new princess into the house here, you will be tried 'hijacked' as patron of a lot differently. Therefore you must be a little bit hesitant in the beginning. It'll come, it is no doubt, says Henning Fode, cabinet secretary in the Danish royal family.

Henning Fode suggest that there may be organizations or associations, who have managed to 'hijack' one of the princesses while they were new to the palace.

- It may be a danger that in the beginning saying yes to too much, which later proves to be too small. Here one should instead have been the patron of an umbrella rather than very specific, disease-related associations, says Henning Fode.

Lecturer in History at the University of Copenhagen, Sørensen, however, feel that Princess Marie has too few patronages compared to Countess Alexandra.

- Alexandra received a disproportionate number of patronage, because she was the first princess in the new generation of the royal family.

While there was great enthusiasm for her the first several years. And it is quite clear why she got many extra patronages compared to the others.

Princess Marie has been given too few. She should definitely have some more in the near future, so that she can get a large enough role to play, says Sørensen.

But could the Countess Alexandra not just 'leave' some of his patronages to Princess Marie?

- No, says Henning Fode.

- That is not an option to take away patronages from the Countess. It has never been considered. And Princess Marie may very well have a stripe requests from various organizations where she has chosen to say no because they either do not have enough weight or not fit enough into her field of interest, says Henning Fode.

I don't think you can compare Alexandra with Marie, when the first married in the family there was no crown princess; now Mary should get most of the work as she is the cp.

However, she could be asking for more things to do, I cannot imagine anyone saying no to her.

And here is the damage control interview:

http://m.stiften.dk/article.pml;jsessionid=0FE498C3E078D290EC221AA78B9676B1.uw-portal3?guid=18042164

A princess life is not as spoiled as most think. Princess Marie does not have a bevy of court ladies, who meets her smallest wishes. Just as she does not walk around with a crown on her head all the time.
In today's daily life as a princess is so much from fairy tales and cartoons, as it possibly can be. So tells the Princess Marie to the morning newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

- Life as a princess is certainly different than in fairytales. My husband was not a frog, when I kissed him first. Princesses now works. They are more independent in their choices. They have of course a big responsibility to represent the royal family. We want to help wherever we can and work for our country. It's something I do with pleasure, explains Princess Marie about her life as a princess.

The article will also tell how the princess and prince shared their lives between daily life in the marshes of southern Jutland and life in Copenhagen. Here, the couple have an apartment at Amalienborg.

- I love the city and to have contact with many people, but I really need to be in nature, and be protected. We are often at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen in connection with meetings and official functions. I feel I have the best of both worlds, says Princess Marie about her life in the capital, respectively, and the village Møgeltønder.

When the couple is staying at Schackenborg in Møgeltønder in Jutland, their lives like others. They get up early in the morning, Marie cooks breakfast for the small family, taking her son Henry of almost three years in day care and go back to the office, located on the castle's first floor.

- Schackenborg is a business that requires a great effort and much of our time. Additionally I have many meetings with the patronage and cooperation organizations across the country and especially in Copenhagen. We spend a whole lot of time traveling back and forth. So when we're at home, there's a lot to do with the operation of Schackenborg says Princess Marie.

Here she reveals also that in contrast to Prince Joachim, is Marie's knowledge of agriculture meager.
- Besides my patronage and official duties, I also focus on Schackenborg. My husband and I work a lot together. I work more on the business side, because I do not have much experience from agriculture. But we exchange views, talk about strategies and new products. It is team work, reveals Princess Marie.

When the couple is not working, they spend their spare time together. They enjoy the flat marshland that surrounds the three-winged, white castle in Møgeltønder miles, go for walks and cook together.

- Meals are very important, also for Henry and we love to cook together. Is it really bad weather, we can see a movie and read a book when we have time, but we do not have much time. Time is a precious good, so it is important to prioritize, says the princess.

It is understood well, Princess Marie priority. For the article, it also emerged that Prince Joachim's working on Schackenborg rarely ends before 17.30 o'clock.

And Marie is actually saying 3 or more sentences in danish.

"Little Henrik hopes she want to play with cars" and then something I couldn't hear.

Quite a surprise as she gave an interview to the danish magazine "Femina" in english last year I think, and they had to translate the whole thing?!

Actually CP Mary speaks fluently danish. As one can watch in the 9 hour long tv serie about the danish royal family. And she appears frequently in tv where she speaks danish. Par example the live appeal from Horn of Africa on national tv during the national colletion.

P Marie has not been appearing a lot. She spoke at some event at an University where she made a speach in english. And she has read a story for some children also in english. And made an interwiev to a danish magazine last year I think, where the interview was translated from english to danish.

That is true.
I was refering to my previous post:

She was saying more than "Little Henrik hopes she want to play with cars". But I couldn't hear what it was.

Beline can apparently tell us what it was.

I hear from some Danes that Marys Danish sucks, it´s more Denglish but I don´t know, can´t judge it.
Marie on the other side has a sense for languages, she speaks English, Spanish and Italian and Danish (maybe with an accent, but in the end she speaks it).

Well
I can honestly say that CP Mary speaks fluently danish throughout the 9 hour tv serie about the royal family and in several tv interviews and when tv broadcast her in action promoting her antibullying campaign or helping women from domestic abuse.

I wonder when Marie has been saying anything in danish. Perhaps your danish friends could find some links. That would be great.

Title: P Marie cv turned out to be slightly tweaked
Post by: HC on January 30, 2012, 08:57:00 am
Found this about P Marie.

First she appears as such an airhead that the tabloid thought she was too stupid too be royal. She told the press that she loved Joachim but had not told him. And she loved the caste he lived in but it was too big and he needed someone. The couple the broke off because Marie couldn't deal with the pressure. And Joachim were seeing kissing some blond in France. But they got back together and engaged.

And then her cv turned out to be slightly tweaked.

http://jp.dk/uknews/culture/article1298653.ece
Prince Joachim's fiancée, Marie Cavallier, is apparently not as well-educated as the royal family has portrayed her, according to Se og Hør gossip magazine.

During the engagement, the royal press officer distributed information about the future princess, stating that she had a bachelor degree in marketing and IT from Marymount Manhattan College in New York and also that she had studied business at Babson College in Boston for two years.

However, the magazine did some digging and it turns out that the soon-to-be royal does not have those qualifications at all. She was an intern for a New York company, where she made coffee and entered data - and not the marketing hot-shot she was thought to have been before becoming engaged to Prince Joachim.

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 30, 2012, 07:19:14 pm
Oh dear, Marie isn't a top level marketing exec; how ever will the marriage last now? It didn't work when Alexndra was a top executive and excellent cosmopolitan career woman, but Marie looks like a wonderful wife and mother and surely that is what is best. Joachim looks like he's thriving and in a good mood and has healthy kids and looks like someone who is eager to end up living life.

Title: Re: P Marie cv turned out to be slightly tweaked
Post by: HC on February 01, 2012, 06:33:21 pm
I found this. A bit more information

 http://www.seoghoer.dk/Nyheder/Royalt/Royalt%20Arkiv/2008/03/maries%20kummerliv.aspx:

Marie Cavallier: Flop PAST
Denmark's future princess had nothing significant out of her seven year stay in America, where she missed an exam and lived in a wretched apartment

From scrap to the castle. This is the true title of the story of Marie Cavallier, that as another "Pretty Woman" may move into Joachim's enormous headquarters in Møgeltønder.

 Before she met the prince, she spent seven namely unsuccessful years in the U.S. between 1994 and 2001, and lived among others in a miserable, humble apartment in a gray and dreary building in New York on the border of the district of Greenwich Village.

 Here she led an anonymous student lives while she dreamed of a better life and the prince on the white horse.

 Through Babson College in Boston, where Marie did not complete her study, she ended up in New York, where she did not - like all Danish media else has written - get a bachelor's degree in marketing, trading and IT.

 In return, she could - with a half-year delay - finally call herself a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College in the subject, liberal arts, that is a very general basic education and, at best, reminiscent of an expanded social science at an high school level.

 SEE and HEAR is in possession of official documents from the college showing that Marie originally should have completed her training in March 1999 but was forced to study further and first graduate in September of that year.

 Served coffee

 Subsequently she worked through a half years as an intern in the company Doubleclick, where she, in addition to entering data into computer systems also served tea to the employees.
 The seven years in the U.S. ended certainly not with the result that Marie - and her parents, who paid several hundred thousand dollars for her school - had expected.
 But what she failed by her own power - to go from ordinary to extraordinary - provides marriage to Prince Joachim of the 24th May

 Read the entire four-page Story and see the pictures from Marie's past.

The woman U.S. Supreme Court Justice chosen by President Obama earned her Bachelor's degree from Marymout in New York it's quite a respected University.

If Marie has a College/University Degree in the U.S. it is a full University degree(even if liberal arts it is still a Bachelor's Degree and it just means it was not a science degree) there is no such thing as a highschool college Degree and Marymount in a respected University in the US and it is part of the east coast ivy league university schools.

Post by: Alexandrine on February 01, 2012, 08:04:26 pm
It it only a google translation from a danish article, HC has improved the wording now I think. What the article meant is that she doesn't have a good quality degree and that she spent more years than the needed to get it.

Anyway the problem is not the degree but the lies they told at the time of the engagement, sadly I don't think this is strange.


Title: Re: P Marie cv turned out to be slightly tweaked
Post by: serene grace on February 01, 2012, 08:43:15 pm
If indeed she does have a BA Degree in the U.S. her degree is on the level of Kate Middleton's degree, there is no difference. In the U.S. to acquire a Bachelor' Degree criteria must be meant, on every level, there is no skipping the processes.

...but that is what I was saying Marymout University is part of New York University system and it is a quality degree if she indeed did Graduate, that BA is on the level of Kate's degree, there is no difference.

Those New York Universities are not bullshit ,... now maybe on the otherhand she didn't graduate and that would make a difference,it would mean she lied about having a degree, but if indeed she has a BA Degree it is a quality degree. Marymount also has a Paris campus, I am wondering if that is why she may have gone to NY.

A Supreme Court Justice went to Marymount and also one of the first women to run for U.S. President, these Universities in NY are quality educations, the U.S. doesn't half-step with degrees, it's a very serious thing, I've been at jobs and people are fired for fudging and saying they graduated and have a B.A. or B.S. when they didn't..........now if Marie really DID NOT GRADUATE from Marymout then that's a different story,then she lied about being a University graduate and doesn't have a degree at all, and then I uderstand the criticism, but if she has a B.A. her degree is on the level of Kate's degree there is no difference, the U.S. has very strict guidelines concerning University graduates and degrees, criteria must be met, ( people who choose to  use their degrees to go onward to law schools, to medical schools, research , etc......there is no fudging a University degree....a degree is a degree and all it entails.)

What SG says about the US bachelor's degrees and the universities' status mentioned is quite true.  All WK actually has is a bachelor's degree, by US standards.   :wopedo: these days.

Again, if the degree was NOT completed in this case; totally different story.

Post by: Mimi on February 01, 2012, 11:26:07 pm
To me it sounds like she lied about the type of degree she got.  It doesn't even sound like she got an art history degree but just took whatever credits she got from Babson and transferred them to Marymont.  Then she just did the remaining required course work to get a degree.  She probably got a degree to say she got a degree but didn't really have a career goal.  My guess is that she said she had a degree in marketing and IT because she took courses in those subjects.  But she probably didn't major in it.

Thanks all.
Very interesting.

The translations from danish to english can perhaps be improved. The article says

"Through Babson College in Boston, where Marie did not complete her study, she ended up in New York, where she did not - like all Danish media else has written - get a bachelor's degree in marketing, trading and IT.

 In return, she could - with a half-year delay - finally call herself a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College in the subject, liberal arts, that is a very general basic education and, at best, reminiscent of an expanded social science at a "hf-niveau" [I have translated to high school level but should perhaps be "non University level"]."

The last 2 words "hf-niveau" means in danish a school before an University (all danish Universities is scientific and a degree will be a scientific degree).


Title: Re: P Marie cv turned out to be slightly tweaked
Post by: serene grace on February 02, 2012, 09:04:05 pm
but that's just wrong for the U.S, in the US we also have BA...Bachelor of Arts degrees, Writing, Language,History, Journalism degrees in the US are Bachelor of Arts degrees, so many things fall under a BA Degree and if Marie completed it, then she has a full University degree just as Kate Middleton does.
Marymount is one of New Yorks Universities and a prestigious one at that.
Calling this University a highschool is just plain crap, the Danish press are lying on her pure and simple.
Maybe she didn't finish her University studies and actually get a degree, that's "one thing" but she went to a University if she did attend Marymount in NY.


Now maybe she didn't work in those jobs, she claims?

Quote
Bachelor of Arts vs. Bachelor of Science
Generally speaking, a Bachelor of Arts degree focuses on more liberal arts general education courses. Students who choose this degree may also be required to complete a foreign language component.

A Bachelor of Science degree will generally focus on more science and mathematics courses. Students pursuing a B.S. in Psychology may have to take more lab and statistics general education classes.


In the U.S. it depends on your field of study you are pursuing which degree you end up with.

I am reading two different things

one seems to say she ONLY did a High School education? Am I wrong in my interpt..../ sorry if I am?

Also another seems to say she went to Marymount and that was equivelant to a highschool,,,,,which if they are saying that....what I am saying is it's just not true and the press is lying...about that part.

If she did indeed go to Marymount and "finished" then she got a University degree on the same level of Kate Middleton's is what I am saying?

I am confused about wether they are saying she got a degree from Marymount or not?

But if she did, that is NOT a highschool degree is what I am saying.......

The wording is confusing me.....because in US a University degree of a BA is not highschool, also she would have had to completed Universty to earn that degree there is no such thing as getting a University degree and not meeting criteria to complete it.

The US. makes these graduates meet every single requirement to earn those Degrees. If Marie did not graduate from Marymount at all or did not work in the jobs she claims then I understand the criticsm...

Perhaps Marymount Manhattan College is both an institution between secondary school and university + a university?

Then the press perhaps means that Marie graduated from this institution and not the university?

What I get is that she has a uni title but with not a very good quality, first because she/the court lied about the kind of degree she got and second because first she went to a college and then to another one where she got the title.

That can explain why Marie after her education only got a job as an intern at DoubleClick where she, in addition to entering data into computer systems also served tea to the employees.

If one got a real education(or whatever she got) one would get a job related to the qualifications, wouldn't one?

 Marymount that Marie claims to have gone to is a University,pure and simple.  Obama chose his recent Supreme Court Justice who went to the same Marymount, it is a a quality education and if Mary does have a BA ,shes a University graduate justas Pr.William and Kate.

Where she got a job was up to her own pushing and pursuing, just as Kate Middleton, worked at Jigsaw after University,
My question is did she actually graduate, because if she didn't then that's a whopper?

Also students in the US transfer from Universities all the time,the requirements still have to be met to get that degree , there is no fudging a University education in the US, unless someone cheated and let others take their test for them.

But it's different if you got all the subjects with good marks and in time than not passing them the first time.

With such a lack of info is difficult to have a complete idea.

SG which court justice member do you mean?

anyway the important thing is that the court lied about the kind of degree she got which I really don't understand why.

Interesting that Marymount Manhattan College is not both an institution between secondary school and university + a university, but is solely a university.

Personally I would be devastated if I after studying 5 years at university - then got a job typing data and serving tea.

I do agree. As I recall the cv mentioned Marie as an international marketing koordinator at Doubleclick, when she was actually typing and serving tea.

The thing is the story is not clear on what exactly the danish press means,first it was claimed the press said it was a highschool degree,which it isn't....that part is just a flat out lie.

If she did graduate, from Marymount the one she claims, 1. it's not a highschool,the danishpress is lieing about that, if they indeed said that.

I have no way to know her grades but to graduate,she would have needed to pass. No such thing as getting a degree if you fail.

Still if she does have a BA she has completed her degree and is a University graduate, but I can't know what she claimed to have graduated in, that part confused me, but why does it bother the danish press if it's a BA ,because in the US if you major in certain things, a BA is what they give. BS are for people going into science or medical fields usually.

Quote
In 1948, the College moved to its present location on 71st Street and became a four-year bachelor degree-granting college; the first class graduated from MMC in 1950. In 1961, MMC was granted an absolute charter as an independent four-year college by the Regents of the University of the State of New York.


I'll end my portion here. Cool conversation though......loved it.  :thumbsup:

I think what may have happened is Marie has a BA, but she told them her "major" was what her focus was on.

Her Degree would say on it Bachelor of Arts Degree (in......)  so perhaps Marie lied about what she actually majored in?

Post by: serene grace on February 02, 2012, 10:49:15 pm
yes..... but the "press" lie is also in the writing,saying it was a highschool that was simply an outright lie, because  the school she went to is part of NY's University system.

What I'm saying is the danish press seemed to be implying she was only a highschool graduate and that part of  the story is simply not true, IF SHE DID GRADUATE from Marymount, she is a graduate with a BA.

I have seen on jobs people lie about what they majored in, but they had degrees in something else, only to be found out later. I was surprised when I applied for corporate jobs, the employer asked to see my actual degree and I had to present it to them before I got the job.

The press don't say that the University is a high school. They say that the subject she studied wasn't very difficult.

danish:
"i faget liberal arts, der er en meget generel basisuddannelse og i bedste fald minder om en udvidet, samfundsfaglig hf."

that means in english:
"in the subject liberal arts, that(the subject) is a very basic education and at best reminds of an extended high school/an institution between secondary school and university ".

And I agree, a very interesting discussion.

Something about liberal art from wikipedia

In the United States, liberal arts colleges are schools emphasizing undergraduate study in the liberal arts. Traditionally earned over four years of full-time study, the student earned either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree; on completing undergraduate study, students might progress to either a graduate school or a professional school (public administration, engineering, business, law, medicine, theology).

After 7-8 years her Danish should be good as Crown Princess and sorry but I hear different opinions on Marys Danish. I don´t know why Mary lovers have the need to bash Marie. She is harmless and wil never be Queen, so calm down.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMikKakpxd4&feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3KVp09ezXI&feature=related



Well not much evidence that Marie speaks danish.
In the first video she says "I'm not yet speaking danish".
In the second video the man has said to her that as she is expecting her sixth child it must be routine for her. Then she laughs. The video begins at the time when the man insist it must be routine for her. Marie says "Yes it is routine".

The woman U.S. Supreme Court Justice chosen by President Obama earned her Bachelor's degree from Marymout in New York it's quite a respected University.

Not true. Justice Sonia Sotomayor graduated from Princeton and Yale Law School. None of the Supreme Court justices come from Marymount Manhattan College.



As I recall the cv mentioned Marie as an international marketing koordinator at Doubleclick, when she was actually typing and serving tea.


I doubt that Marie had a paying job at DoubleClick, because a paying job for a foreigner working in the U.S. would require a work visa. It's difficult for American companies to procure H-1B visas for foreigners and I find it hard to believe that a company would have spent the time and effort to get Marie an H-1B visa. She doesn't have any specialized skills. She's not some Indian national with a doctorate in computer science from Stanford. Marie's longest job was at her stepfather's office and I don't think she's very bright, judging from her attention seeking behavior before the engagement.
 
Her CV makes it sound like she had a regular, paid position in the U.S. rather than an unpaid internship. I doubt anyone in the Danish press has ever verified this.

I think what they were trying to say in the artilce is that Marie got a VERY basic degree. Here in the US a liberal arts degree is the most basic degree you can get in college or uni. I have to say I'm not a Marie fan but 'tweaking' her CV like this is far better then the way the Swedish royal family are trying to 'tweak' CP's girlfriend's CV. At least Marie does have a degree. The Swedes are trying to make Sophia look like a saint.

Just to specify: There has been several articles about Marie. Some about her being too stupid due to her remarks about loving Joachim. And some odd remarks about his nice castle. Some about her tweaked cv. And one was about her visiting family in France at 9/11 and not being able to return to USA because she perhaps was in the states without visa or something and was not taking the chance with the risk of been controlled by the authorities.

HC since you are a danish poster I would love to hear your thought about the articles saying Marie copies Mary's style. This may not be the correct thread for it however,but I am not that familiar with Marie's clothing. I know they had a few examples in the article but they seemed more like peices most women would have in their closets. I dont know anyone how doesn't have black pants or a white blouse. I guess what I'm really asking is does Marie copy Mary?

 I recalled that there was a news segment on a latin woman Supreme Court Justice who graduated from Marymount, but it was this woman for Supreme Court of New York State.
Justice Sallie Manzanet-Daniels was born and raised in New York City and is a product of the New York City public schools. She is a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology in 1985. Justice Manzanet-Daniels is a graduate from Hofstra University School of Law, Class of 1988, where she attended on a full scholarship.

I don't think she had a work visa, which would mean that she didn't have a paying job in the US and so she had to leave. The Danish media should have investigated this when the court released her CV, but the Danish media treat the royals with kid gloves.

Marie did more than just talk to reporters before the engagement: she posed for pictures with reporters and signed her autograph, well before the engagement. She certainly didn't keep a low profile before the engagement.

I haven't read the articles you are referring to.
Marie has had a preference to clothes fitting very tight  :o . In Denmark women generally don't dress like that.

But resently Marie hasn't worn tight fitting clothes and is beginning to dress more like CP Mary and the rest of us for that matter. Still Marie is dressing quite foreign looking even though I don't know what style country that might be  :tehe: . But we don't all have to dress danish style.

I can't laugh at the names, because since I've been in Norway I have heard the strangest names, but in Norway they are part of the norm.

I met a woman who told me her name  is "Tuna"......I asked my husband how does she spell it and he said Tone.

Surely they could have found a solution had they wanted to arrive together. Combined with the boys' having to sit somewhere else it just looks as if they're 2nd class now.

It certainly seems that's what he's doing. I read at RD that the DRF has basically erased the boys' maternal history from their official profiles as if they haven't got a mother. Alexandra might be his ex-wife, but she's still the mother of his children and to pretend she never existed is just wrong. :thumbsdown:

Marie is the only child of Alain Cavallier and Françoise Grassiot (née Moreau). Marie has four half-brothers, Benjamin and Gregory Grandet, both born in Switzerland, and Charles and Edouard Cavallier, both born in Paris.

Alain Cavallier is the former co-owner of an advertising agency and has retired. Françoise Grassiot is the owner of the hotel “Chateau de la Vernède”.

A sweedish comment; I couldn't resist it is so funny  :tehe: :

The name 'Athena' illustrates the Danish sense of humor - always coarse-grained
and hard to digest for a Swede,
but with a pair Aalborg Taffel Akvavit-schnapsar
we shall probably be able to wash it down even this joke.

But - it is guaranteed Princess Marie that has chosen the names  - and especially the name 'Athena'.

The logic is as follows;

In foreign newspapers and other media will return
similar descriptions of the Princess Marie;
She is described as straightforward and easy-going,
but remarkably unrefined and without the sophisticated
and elegant character of French women often are blessed with.

A refined French baptizes not her daughter 'Athena' -
it is a typical low status choice for an uncertain wanna-be-trendy mother with no sense of continuity or
tradition.

Stylistically they have managed to create a representative of the princess Marie,
But in the charming smile hides
still the girl that drinks red wine straight from the bottle, and whose
main effort before the royal life consisted of making coffee!

Yes - such a woman feels that 'Athena' sounds poetic,
beautiful and royal with a 'goddess' name!

But let's be generous and say that the name at least
is ... original.
So far.

Soon they are popping up in kindergartens in Horsens and Naestved
with small shovels in their hands instead of the divine spear and spread the spirit of sand instead of wisdom from the sandboxes.
- Come o stove little Zeus, Apollo og sweet Athena!

Of course, I agree with Point de Vue and Hello magazine;
Princess Marie is definitely as elegant and sophisticated as her engagement ring ...
And ... that is why she fit the beer-drinking Prince Joachim like a glove.

Happy to see Carina Axelsson that was limping at the baptism and the Queen
Margrethe was summersweet - like all of the Crown Prince family
and the baptisted child that literally was divinely sweet.

No, now I feel that the occasion requires a Gammel Dansk Bitter ..
closely followed by a bar of soap to stop my naughty mouth!

The article says that CP Mary had a dictionary in her pocket and that must mean that she want to speak as good danish as Marie at the hospital.

Well I didn't think Marie spoke very good danish at the hospital. I've seen the video again and when Marie was asked what the most precious moment was during the birth - Marie answered that she was so gratefull for all the hospital staff.

We have heard very few danish sentences from her. The interview she recently gave to a magazine was in english. The very few speaches is also in english while CP Mary is frequently beeing interviewed and giving speaches in danish.

Little Athena's mother has not an ounce of excess fat on the body
Many new mothers struggling to get rid of those extra pounds that crept on during pregnancy. In average a Danish woman put on 12-15 kilo while she waits, and for some it's hard to throw them again.

But not the 31-year-old Marie. As befits for a real princess, Marie was Marie skinny and extremely hot today at Møgeltønder Church, where her little daughter, Princess Athena, was baptized.

I don't think she is 31, well.

I had a colleague once that was named Tenna. Really nice woman. But Athena like the greek goddess that is not nice for a girl growing up or a grown woman. Perhaps she could move to another country? Joachim has said he feels more french than danish. Even though a half french danish reporter Stephanie Surrugue has said that Prince Henrik certainly is not like a frenchman. Maybe due to the family has lived in Vietnam for several years.

It is nice to know that Athena is actually a real name for a person.

One newspaper thought it was a mineralwater and here the guess is greek youghurt.

Quote
Krogsgaard Helene Mikkelsen writes: "It is a beautiful and strong name. Good for a girl with perhaps a future French temperament."

Belinda Zachariasen and Louise Skaaning Frederiksen also like the name: "It is very beautiful," "So fine a name. And how sweet she is the little Athena."

 Many of the TV 2 News Facebook Users however questions about the lack of Danish-sounding names.

Helen Warming Henriksen: "Think it's a strange name to give to a Danish princess."

Kristina Holse Palbjørn-Pedersen writes: "Damn .... not much Danish-ness left."

Several TV 2 users can recognize the name:

Dorthe Jensen writes: "Think it's a shame that she will be named the same as the Greek yogurt from the supermarket."

Also Annemette Lindholm thoughts went to the cold counter when she heard the name "Greek yogurt is what I think."

But hey if the goddess of hunt Diana became a popular girl name why not the name of the goddess of wisdom as well.
I know of ppl called Paris, Venus, Ariadne and even a Callisto so...
But I do understand that the Danish would prefer a typical Scandinavian name for there new princess rather then a Greek of Latin name.

Still, when official pictures of little princess were relesed, the boys were in the middle of their big family. Marie is their stepmom, not mom. They have their mom and I personally wouldn't like it when Marie would act as if she was trying to take Alexandra's place.

What's more, after the baptisim, one of the boys (I never know which one  :flower: :flower:) went immediatelly to hold little Henrik's hand, the other one went straight to Marie, she gave him a hug and they moved together toward a car, her hand on his arm. I don't think they are excluded from M&C life.

As far as the Christmas card is concerned, the elder boy is 12 / 13, as far as I remember and at such age, maybe he didn't like the idea of being pictured on the card. For example, William and Harry nowadays don't sent Christmas cards, whereas when they were kids, the always posed together with Di and / or Charles. Remember those pictures where they were in huge flowerpots?

Paperedition See and Hear this week:

Joachim forgot Felix and Nikolai. Deserted by father. Hidden away during the baptism. Children expert chocked.

Joachim and Marie couldn't find room for "the divorce children" when they together with little Prince Henrik got Athena baptized. And that is very critizable, says an acknowledged expert.
When the parents left the church they even forgot Joachims 2 boys Felix and Nikolai. 12 year old Nikolai and 9 year old Felix had to run after their father to follow him out of the church. That is accordin to children- and family scientist and former chairman of the Children Counsel professor Per Schultz Jørgensen, dr. phil. in psykology, a totally wrong behaviour. It is an unfortunate signal to send. Had it been an ordinary family it would not only be unfortunate but directly critizable. And it offends ordinary people. The dicision might have been made in the best of intentions, but the decision is both crazy and ancient. The royal boys are used to the limelight. But they are children and therefor has the decision consequences for the 2 boys. The consequences is that they feel they are not good enough. And that is so critizable that I can't imagine this would occur in an ordinary family.

During the live broadcast of Joachim and Marie's wedding, Anna Johannesen from Billed Bladet was a guest on either DR or TV 2. She was the one who got the first interview with Marie, long before any engagement. She talked about that interview and she said that she asked Marie for permission to take pictures of her. Marie was reluctant at first, not because she had the common sense to realize that talking to the media and posing for pictures would make her look stupid and desperate to be a princess. No, she was reluctant because she wasn't wearing makeup--she had been out walking her dog when Billed Bladet found her.

So Anna Johannesen and Hanne Juul (Billed Bladet photographer) loaned her some makeup and Marie was good to go. She posed for pictures and she even took a picture with Anna Johannesen.

No, I haven't seen that interview. Love it.  :hi:

I can't believe how vain Marie was. And so eager to be interviewed.   :laugh:

I just watched an engagement interview that was send up to the baptism. That was so funny.

- How did You meet? A long time ago at mutual friends. We were the only ones that were french so we talked. We actually only said goodday. Nothing else happened.  :-

-The most important thing is my children. If that doesn't work it can't be. [Marie freezing in her face]  :sly:

What is it with these princes that they can't marry women who have had solid stable jobs and solid careers? Marrying these party girls has been a lot more expensive and troublemaking and high maintanence (in having to be taught basic manners) than most aristocrats.

The Princes like to show off and impress them commoner girls... they like to be the one to show off that world to people that know nothing about it. The commoner women are easily impressed... but the women from families aristo's or royals cant be impressed because they know how it works and how it is and they have their own money and own titles and even older bloodlines than these seat warmer Monarchies. So the crown princes don't want to put the work to show that they are worthy to marry their daughters unlike the commoners & their families who are easily impressed about the world they know nothing about..... just the money and titles and the easy life of being famous.

Well in this particular case with P Joachim, he first married Alexandra that came from a hardworking life. At the time Joachim met Alexandra she had the last 2 years been a vicedirector with a high income.

So I think in his second marriage he married the opposite. A woman with a career containing summerjob during college at Estee Lauder, job as coffeebrewer at double click (maybe unpaid as she did't have a visa) and a job at her stepfather as receptionist.

Marie really is the opposite of Alexandra.

Marie lazy but eager to finally give stupid interviews at any occasion saying stupid thing.

Alexandra a hardworking business woman that just married the wrong man.

A vain arrogant selfabsorbed danish prince that never was supposed to get an apanage. He only got the apanage because of Alexandras popularity.

Did she really flunk her driver's license exam multiple times? I know a tabloid wrote that, but I don't know if that's true. I know that she didn't have a driver's license at the time of her official engagement because that was discussed during the engagement press conference.

It seems strange that a 31-year old woman (at the time of engagement) wouldn't have a driver's license especially since she could easily afford a car (her father could just buy her one, just like he bought her apartment) and she doesn't have some kind of disability that would prevent her from driving. Does she drive now?

That sounds very likely that Marie flunk her driver's license exam multiple times. It must have been impossibly for her as there is at least one traffic light in Tønder  :tehe: and no traffic light in her head.  :tehe:

All those exams might also explain why she hasn't had any work done besides jogging in the fields and waving to the nanny when she walks by with the child. (According to another story from a tabloid.  :tehe: )

Well, to be honest, I don't see a connection between sb's inteligence and being an owner of a driving licence.
For example, last week, a sister of one of my best friends failed the exam for the 5th time. She didn't even have a chance to drive in a city, she didn't even leave the training yard. She failed when "performing" on the curve of the road. And it doesn't mean she is stupid and vapid or sth else. She simply didn't have luck or was so nervous she forget basic moves when driving. I know cases when sb failed because she / he forget to switch off the lights when leaving the car after a well-done driving in the city. My own flatmate said "thank you very much" to a very rude examiner and left a car in the middle of the exam in the parking space in the middle of a city.

Marie didn't give him a hug.
And as mentioned above one of the commentators said it went to her heart when the 2 eldest brothers was not seated next to their father. What ever ...

You are right. She didn't. I was watching with one eye as I was cleaning  :hi: :hi: She kissed QM.
But the seating of the boys should depend on the opinion of their father, not stepmother. If Joachim didn't state his opinion, it is his fault.
But I guess that QM had a big say, if not the biggest say, in how the ceremony would look like and maybe she decided where the boys would sit. After all, she is still the Queen.

Marie had apparently arranged the flower decoration with the 2 big hearts one in pink and one blue and the 2 little hearts one in pink and one blue.

See and Hear blame the father Joachim for the odd seating of the 2 boys away from their father.

And both Marie and Joachim was blamed for forgetting the 2 sons from the previous marriage, when they went down the church.

I don't think one could blame the Queen. If Joachim had asked for different seating he would of course had different seating.

So no one is dragging the Queen into this.

Not the commentator during the baptism, not See and Hear, and not tv2 news, the program "press discussion", that yesterday discussed the issue again. The tv2 program had yet another expert that agreed with the first expert. Children will in such a situation feel left out and it is important to acknowledge this.

I can only imagine how QMII feel, suffering such a fool.  :tehe:

But P Joachim likes his stupid wife after his troubles with his first wife. I watched a video with Joachim and Marie. They were seated in a car and Marie looked like she was talking about some candy she was eating. I do not know what she said as I didn't bother to turn of my Hoover. But even Joachim looked a bit uninterested in the intensive talk and show about the candy  :tehe:

I can't help thinking "horseface" when I see Princess Marie  :shy: . Her face is so long. Probably due to her declining hairline. Or due to her idiotic remarks before the engagement. And she always dress either like a bimbo in clothes that are too tight fitted and or clothes that is too shiny and cheap looking. But the pink dress at Kronborg was very elegant.

Many will probably call brunette princess Marie a true beauty.
There are indications, however, that the French-born princess are not completely satisfied with either face or body.

See and Hear can today with photo documentation reveal that the princess along with husband Prince Joachim is checked in at a French plastic surgeon.

The surgeon Jean-Yves Ferrand has allegedly had the princess under the knife.

He is regarded as an expert in making nice shapely buttocks and tighten wrinkled faces.

Princess Marie went into the clinic, located approximately 25 kilometers from Paris, Monday at 14.35. First Tuesday at 15.35, then a day later, the princess left the clinic.

The court communications director Lene Balleby confirms that Princess Marie has visited the clinic. She would not comment further because of the privacy of the matter.

Marie sure had something major done, considering she was at the hosptal for a 24 hours or so. It wasn't botox.

Joachim was never supposed to get apanage. He only got it because everyone loved Alexandra at the time of the engagement. He should not have received apanage in the first place. He and his wife has nothing to offer the danish people except delusions of grandeur. He is arrogant but has nothing to be arrogant about. And we are all seeing the pictures of him drooling over 16 year old girls at discos -  whenever he appears in public demanding to be spoken to in certain ways - because of his delusions.

If the clinic where Marie was photographed deals with only plastic surgery, then she definitely had work done. Some of the Marie fans on another board are in denial, saying that there has been no confirmation from the court. Well, obviously, the court is not going to confirm plastic surgery. They confirmed that she spent the night without elaborating why. Those Marie fans think that she is so natural and real. Even with the photographic evidence, they're still in denial. They also made excuses for Marie's indiscreet behavior before the engagement, for which there is tons of photographic evidence and interviews. In fact, Marie even signed her autograph! More than a year before the engagement!

-behaved so utterly stupid before the engagement
-appears like nothing but arm candy

Such a stepford wife in Europe where women are selfdependant and their own persons.   :o

But think that Joachim first wife must have been someone who was very independent and knew what she wanted (what a pity she didn't marry Fed!), so for the second time he chose the opposite, someone who would do what he wanted.

I've also found funny that she is very similar to Mary in looks.

Joachim surely chose Marie because she is stupid and shallow. He couldn't afford another marriage break down and a woman with brains was too much of a risk.

It's really hilarious how the Marie fans are still in denial about this story. I don't necessarily believe that Marie got new boobs, but she got some kind of plastic surgery procedure that required an overnight stay. She was actually photographed at this plastic surgery clinic and the court was forced to confirm that she spent the night because of the pictures. Yet, the Marie fans still think that she didn't get anything done. Why do they think she spent the night at the clinic then? If Se og Hoer didn't have pictures, then I wouldn't believe it either, but they actually got pictures.

There is a tendency to draw a picture of the perfect life with spouse, children, inspirational work, interesting hobbies, a youthful appearance regardless of age. Who can live up to it all? Why do we do it?

So said Queen Margrethe in her traditional New Year speach. And the words on the youthful appearance can be a finger pointing to a member of the Queen's own family. It is not more than ten days ago, SE and HEAR revealed that Margaret's daughter in law, Princess Marie, was treated at a plastic surgery clinic in France.

Princess Marie has said several times that she just loooved the life at the countryside. And all she wanted was to be a housewife.

In a country like Denmark no one thinks much of a country loving housewife.

And now perhaps a boob job.  :laugh:

How do one need new boobs to be a country loving housewife??  :o

There are indeed certain similarities between Kate and Marie. Both par example "worked" before getting married.

And here a video, where P Joachims says to his eldest son to be carefull and stop (somethings about a sledge) before he destroys the sledge or before "I will destroys you"... the journalist ahems and warns that the dictaphone is on.

P Marie interrupts with a question - a poor excuse to be interviewed too?

Princess Marie looking for a new personal trainer.

Quote
Princess Marie has given her personal trainer the boot.

Marc Skovsbøg was otherwise very secure in the belief that he would keep his job as a royal coach when the doping scandal began to roll earlier today.

 And this is despite the fact that he has been fired as coach of Fitnessdk after he tested positive for doping.

 But now Marc Skovsbøg therefore also has been fired by Princess Marie.

Marc Skovsbøg is finishrd as Princess Marie's personal trainer.

So now Joakims beautiful wife is looking for a new whip to keep her body perfectly.

Just saw a program about royal fans.

Apparently last year when P Marie and P Joachim was in Greenland there was a conflict with a photographer.

The Photographer Chris tells in the program that he is shooting Marie. She tells him that photographers are not allowed to shoot while royals are eating.  :tehe:

Chris says to her that You are not supposed to talk with food in your mouth  :thumbsup:
Apparently she was talking during the shooting.

Marie then gets very sulky   :angry:

But Joachim tells Marie a piece of his mind  :bat:

Chris don't say what Joachim told Marie.

Later in the program we get to know that Chris is a personal friend to Comtesse Josephine  :laundry:  and Chris is also one of the speciel selected photographers to shoot QMII at new year.

On one hand I don't think Joachim should get angry at Marie in front of a photog. But on the other hand her remark to the photog was so utterly stupid. It exposes how she thinks of herself. And how she don't understand a danes view on her.

On the other hand I can understand that Joachim wants to tell the photog that Joachim takes a distance to Maries attitude. And even more when the photog apparently is a personal friend to Joachims second cousin Comtess Camilla.

Post by: Alexandrine on March 08, 2013, 05:51:17 pm
I think that Marie thought that life was going to very easy when she married Joachim but it wasn't what she expected. IMO the couple has a better relationship with M&H especially because of the french connection and Margrethe likes what Henri likes. But she lives in a farm in the middle of nowhere and she has to compete with Alexandra's ghost and Mary's popularity. She doesn't have a very high profile role in the RF.


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: HC on March 08, 2013, 07:39:55 pm
Excatly, I agree.

As a royal expert said on her birthday recently - Marie hasn't stepped into character.

I think Marie never will. She likes to tell about how she loves to live in the country. Really Marie?
I don't think Marie realised that Schackenborg is situated in the outback of Denmark.

Marie likes to tell how she likes that her husbond is oldfashioned, because she is oldfashioned too. Well that is making the most out of having no carreer other than making coffee at Double click or being a receptionist at her stepfathers firm.

All this told in interviews in english to a danish magazine or in french to Vue de Point.

It'll be very interesting how Marie's life turns out.  One of her very first engagements was an overseas trip to Morocco to meet one of the Lalla's.  I thought she'd hit the ground running with international and prestigious events.  I've been wondering about her lately.  Although I'm glad that Joachim did not encourage Marie's rude remark, I don't like the idea of him chastising her like a child in front of others.  Marie's the one to watch in this family for sure.

I just read in the paperissue of "Billedbladet" that some aidspatients had a meeting with Marie. After the meeting they said that they hoped the had gotten a good patron. Normally people would say after such a meeting that they were very happy or that they were sure they had gotten a good patron. That makes me wonder if she disappoints people in general.

Perhaps Marie after the Marocco trip also didn't meause up to the Lego Foundations expectations. They might think that they could find someone better to send abroad next time.

Ok HC.  This is from Trine Villeman's book 1015 Copenhagen K: Mary's Dysfunctional In-Laws
Quote
"But others within Joachim's circle are still not convinced that the prince was ready for a second marriage. 

'He tells all of his friends that he is very happy with Marie.  But I don't think he likes to be alone and he is not very good at it either.  Joachim likes to have the perfect surroundings for his life and I feel the decision to marry Marie is a part of that.  He is creating a new structure in which to live his royal life,' says a friend.  ... 

Joachim's friends would not be surprised if this marriage ends as disastrously as the first.  They suspect that Joachim proposed to the girl who had become a familiar face on Danish magazine covers, simply because he thought that's what people expected.  Members of Joachim's small, loyal entourage are crossing their fingers.  They are not convinced that nice, naïve Marie is, as one put it, 'princess-material.'  But more than anything, friends worry about Joachim's obsession with duty and his penchant for self-sacrifice."  (140).


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: HC on March 12, 2013, 05:57:45 pm
Wow, that is a big surprise to me.

If a friend of Joachim believes that Joachim chose Marie because the public expected this - that friend is either lying or live far from Denmark.

No one in the public expected that Joachim married Marie. The public feared it. Headlines were that royal experts thought that Marie was unfit to be part of the royal family, as Marie had made different stupid comments to the press.

Do you think Joachim regrets marrying Marie?  And vice versa?

Post by: HC on March 13, 2013, 09:07:42 am
Uh, interesting topic.

Well, Joachim and Marie broke up after her unfortunate moments with the press. 

Then he was kissing a 20 year old blond girl he met during af holiday. As I remember they were playing tennis. Then suddenly he appeared with Marie again.

As such they both had time to think. Joachim knew Marie was either playing the press with a bad result, - or a little naive girl that speaks her mind to everyone about her falling in love, her fancy for big castles an so on.

But I guess Joachim also knows that he would marry a woman that is submissive, girly. And this sort of woman is almost impossibly to find, at least in Denmark.

Men that likes this sort of women travel to Thailand or Poland, because they think danish women are too equel.

What I want to say is that it's true Poland is a rather traditional country but it doesn't equal to being submissive when it comes to women. Being a young woman in my twenties, I cannot imagine agreeing to everything a man says. And many friends think the same as well. It's simply a given taking into account we live in the 21st century. And my mum, who is in her forties, does have an equal relationship with my dad. And to be honest, it's a little different with my grandparents but even they work through many issues together.

Now the debate is about men that are treated badly.

Men don't get the same education as women, and that is of course the womens fault.  :o
The female students study too much .... 
Or there has been too many female kindergarten teachers and that has made the new generation of men weak...

We have a new generation of men that don't manage as good as the women, so they stigmatisize danish women. A new blame game.

Prince Joachim in massive debt
http://cphpost.dk/national/prince-joachim-massive-debt
Quote
Since May 2007, Joachim has taken out five loans on the castle, the latest amounting to 20 million kroner. Today, the prince owes the bank nearly 42 million kroner.

if he was a "normal person" he wouldn't get away with owing in over 7 million is US dollars


Title: Re: Prince Joachim in massive debt
Post by: Countess of Holland on August 30, 2013, 03:43:08 pm
That all depends on the value of the entire estate. I understand that it is a massive estate with a large house, an inn that is owned by the prince but operated by another couple (but he gets the profits if there are any) and it is an agricultural company so theremust be money tight up in these huge machines or otherwhise in milk-quota (in the EU a farmer can only sell a certain amount of milk a year, the amount is linked to the quotum he has, as a result, these quota can be very valuable).

And keep in mind that land is much more expensive in Denmark than in the (rural parts) of the US. In my own, equally densily populated, country, The Netherlands, a square meter of agricultural land can cost you up to 500 euro's.

That having, said, it sounds to me the prince is living a little bit too large for his paygrade. Of course he should keep investing in the estate, modernising it, making it greener, but 7 million sounds pretty steep if you base it on his annual state-income.

BTW Is the estate of Prince Joachim a big estate/ farm for Danish standards? And do you know if the farms grows produce (and if so what produce) or does he have kettle?

Schackenborg is an extensive estate with both farm and woodland with Conifer. He certainly has cattle as it produces beef, and I know that it is part of a partnership with other farms called De 5 Gaarde (The 5 Farms) which produces a variety of food products. I have never tasted it as I only eat organic, which it is not.
HC will probably be able to provide you with more info on this. :thumbsup:

Thanks Venus, but I only eat organic too.

I really don't have any stand on this about Joachims economic situation. As the second son he had no prospects not even to an apanage. But the nobleman Hans Schac stood without a direct heir in line. There was a Michael Hans Count Schac though - must be a nephew - but he said no thanks. He couldn't afford to enherit, as the estate was in serious debt.

Here is a picture of Mick Schac

Count Hans Schac became disappointed about Joachims lack of interest in farming. QMII was furious about the economic difficulties about the estate. Even though the whole thing is perhaps valued as a gift of 100 million kroner as mentioned in this article - I suspect the Queen has put millions in the property herself. As I remember all communication ended between the two.

Joachim now has got an EC subsidy and an apanage (due to the excitement about Alexandra).

Joachims estate Schackenborg Gods is 969 hektar.

To compare
RUDBJERGGAARD GODS (1876,5 hektar)
owned by Reventlow von Rosen from 1891

TRANEKÆR GODS (1733 hektar)
owned by Ahlefeldt / Ahlefeldt-Laurvig from 1663

TJELE GODS (3061 hektar)

WEDELLSBORG GODS (3781,6 hektar)
owned by Wedell from 1672

http://www.flemmingsherregaarde.dk/27592142

The minisrty of food has in 2008 made a list over the farmers that get the highest EC subsidy. Prince Joachim is no. 63 on this list with 1,7 mio kr.

Puberty Education & Menstrual Hygiene Management: An Education Sector Responsibility


Puberty is a time of change for all young people, but it is particularly challenging for girls who are often unprepared for changes in their body, which can become a major obstacle to their education. In some parts of the world, two out of three girls reported having no idea of what was happening to them when they began menstruating.

This can have many negative effects on their physical and emotional development, leading to a drop in self-esteem and poor performance at school. According to a study in Ghana, 95% of girls reported sometimes missing school due to menstruation; and research in Ethiopia showed that 39% of girls reported reduced performance at school for the same reason. Often the lack of adequate toilet facilities at school, combined with fear and embarrassment further contribute to their disengagement from education at this crucial time in their lives.

Apparently Prince Joachim has decided to place his country-estate Schackenborg in a foundation. He will no longer work there as manager/ farmer but the couple will keep the house as their country-home.

Some years ago it was said that Joachim was in serious debt because of some modernisation of Schackenborg. Perhaps the debt was too heavy for the prince.

The official reason is that the couple finds it hard to combine their royal work with the farm. Which seems a bit odd because it has been known since te 1970's that Joachim would do this after he inherited the estate from a Danish count who had no children of his own.

Post by: Alexandrine on July 01, 2014, 08:03:59 pm
^Thank you for the new info!

Royal work? What a joke.

But even if the place is in a foundation what does it mean for the debts? They will still have to be paid.

Maybe it's more of an inheritance issue? I do not know how they work in Denmark but maybe in this way Marie will have more control in the future.

Quote
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie has decided to let Schackenborg Castle, Prince Joachim took over in 1993, transferred to a fund and move to Copenhagen with their two children.

This was announced by the royal family on Tuesday.

The reason is that it has become too difficult for the couple to run the castle in Møgeltønder, and Prince Joachim calls the decision to sell Schakenborg "difficult", but stresses that he is convinced that this approach "ensures Schackenborg future as possible."

Judging from the comments on TV 2 Facebook pages with the most recent days has been intense debate on the issue, there is not much support for the royales decision by the Danes.

- Hope that the royal family is paying all the costs associated with it, so it is once again the taxpayers to finance the royal family, writes Thomas Kirkemann while Dorthe Knudsen describes Prince Joachim as "Denmark's luckiest farmer".

- he gets a castle and estate as a gift, and then he rund away from it. The prince should then be ashamed, supplements Bodil Marie Nielsen.

Boy am I glad that Queen/ Princess Beatrix made it clear from the start that her younger sons had to be able to provide for themselves, with some help of private trustfunds inherited from grandparents etc. But at least neither of them have ever received one euro in taxpayers money.

I believe there have been rumours for years that in spite of Joachim's best efforts (and I think he is genuinely interested in agriculture) the estate could not pay for itself. I think Schackenborg Castle looked a charming fairy tale place and it's a shame that it will no longer be a family home.

Here some views from  Mik Schack. On his birth certificate says Michael Hans Count Schack, but the fine noble ancestors never said him anything. He refused to enherite the castle at the time. Then Joachim got it instead..

Quote
The castle has already cost him a marriage. So I can understand that he leaves, says Mik Schack to bt.dk.

- I have no idea what my ancestors would say that it is now transferred to a fund and that Joachim and Marie moves away. There's probably someone who is sad. But there were also many who were sad that it never really was Joachim's home. That he rarely was there.

- But honestly. He got it jammed down the throats as 9 years old!

That fits my idea of Joachim. He comes across as very aloof and distant. Not a warm, loving father at all. And it wouldn't surprise me at all of he would project his not-so-positive feelings for Alexandra onto their two sons.

At the time it was also said that the prince was not able to make Schackenborg a profitable estate and that his royal apanage was needed to make up for the losses.
So he was able to sell the estate to Ecco (the shoes) and Lego (the children's toys) and will be able to use Shackenborg as his country home while the the estate is farmed by a professional.

At the time the prince got some backlash because of his failure to make it a profitable enterprise, especially since he had inherited the estate and never had to worry about mortgages and loans that other farmers often have (for the milk quota, the machinery etc).

Joacim gives an interview about not indulging the children due to guilt about divorce.

Some of a very long interview

According to the radio he also tells about him driving headless. Frederik being a passenger luckily didn't get anything but bruises.
What he didn't tell was that Frederik fell out of the car into a river unconscious. Only because a Frenchfarmer saw the accident frederik didn't drown.

I guess 'driving headless' means 'driving without thinking about the dangers'?

And I never heard of the Crown prince nearly drowning. When did this happen?

Marie has got new boobs in letvia.

According to a front-page on a tabloid. It was discussed in the radio that it must have been a repair of the boobs she got in France some years ago.

Tabloids makes excuses. As the court has stated Marie has never been to the clinic nor been in letvia.

what an obsession with her breasts! Is there any obvious change?


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: HC on October 13, 2015, 09:09:37 pm
I would say, but I'm not sure.

The plastic clinic in France was a fact as there was visa card evidence and photos coming out. And the court didn't comment then.

When the court is commenting this time I suppose Marie actually didn't get a boob job redone. Or at least not in letvia.

Why choose Latvia? Cheaper surgery? Mary must have had things done but they are not published in the same way.


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: HC on October 13, 2015, 09:27:36 pm
Letvia would be an odd place, but apparently there is a Danish clinic there.

I haven't seen or read anything about Mary in that department.

Royal commentator says the royals has never commentated on tabloid stories.

The court say they have commentated before.

And there is a picture of the non made boobs in the article.

The visit to a clinic in France was Dec 2012.

http://www.seoghoer.dk/nyheder/marie-flot-kavalergang

The court didn't comment on that, only the recent alleged visit in Letvia.



Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: Alexandrine on October 15, 2015, 09:51:00 pm
they seem larger, is like she has done it very gradually so no one would notice? because I don't see a huge difference in the recent events


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos

These pictures are from early 2013 some months after the clinic visit in France

She looks almost prettier in the portrait than in real life. I like it, even though I find it a bit odd how the body blends into the background.

^ Indeed, he was a cute little boy and is growing into a handsome man!
I watch the Danes only superficially, but I like Marie and I enjoy seeing how they seem to have made it work with all kids, seemingly no friction.
Lovely to see them all during appearances.


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: Alexandrine on August 28, 2017, 09:49:44 pm
I'm not so sure about the no friction. I remember all of us scandalised during Athena's christening because his first kids were like apart from his second family. And in the bdays photos they never appear the 4 together, only one set of kids depending on the bdays.


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: HRHOlya on August 28, 2017, 10:15:44 pm
^ I only followed them very sporadically and even that only a few months ago, now I'm still more of a "on the surface watcher".
I was expecting and have come across a few comments mentioning friction (rather unrealistic to be all smooth sailing), and I think a christening scandal was mentioned if I remember correctly (must be Athena's!), but I never really dug in.
Yeah, sadly friction is the done deal imo in patchwork/ modern families and I would be suprised if it really went on smoothly (esp behind the scenes; but also publicly of course).


Title: Re: Joachim & Marie: News and Photos
Post by: Alexandrine on August 28, 2017, 10:19:25 pm
They are not very interesting and until Nikolai's wedding we will not get a big event from them. Or maybe a divorce between these two?

I remember watching Athena's christening at uni, so many years have passed!
