Professor in History at Copenhagen University, Jes Fabricius Møller, don't expect the Queen to abdicate. He thinks the survey is an expression of the huge popularity of the Crown Prince Couple.

-The poll is more of an expression of people really like Frederik and Mary, than it is an expression of the Queens work, says he.

That would also be my interpretation of the poll.  :hi:

Fred honey, little tip if you pose from a pic, don't put your hands behind your back if your jacket is closed,
You either open the jacket or put your hands in front or at your sides
Other wise you tighten the jacket and it looks as if you're too fat for it! 
Except for that nice pic's  :thumbsup:
I liked both Mary's and Mathilde's outfit's. (and can I say that for a mom of four she still has killer legs, Philippe is a lucky guy ;))

CP Mary participated in a congress about medicin.

The moment she made her entrance in the large meeting hall, she was the woman at the center. When she entered the large room, all was suddenly silent, among the many researchers, professors and doctors from around the world who had come to Copenhagen.

 The International Assembly of Denmark showed great respect towards CP Mary and stiffened almost when Mary appeared. It was not long before the mood changed dramatically. When Mary came to the pulpit to open the conference officially with a little speech in English, then half the audience found their iPhone and photographed and filmed the royal profile, so you'd think she was a pop star a la Madonna in the stage for a concert in the park.

 Mary was certainly a hit with her mere presence. After an hour Crown Princess Mary left the hall to hold a meeting in private with the President of the World Health Organisation.

Mary was the guest of honor, since at Frederiksberg Town Hall at a prestigious event was highlighting the World's Refugees and specifically on the situation in DR Congo.
After a welcoming speech by Mayor George Glenthøj Mary took over. The Crown Princess gave a moving speech to a packed Town hall. A talk about children and their right to develop, and the difference in children's development in safe, Danish environment and an upbringing in a country like DR Congo, where many children are growing up as refugees with no possibility of getting either security or education.

Crown Princess Mary's speech was beautiful but also very specific. The message was clear. After the royal speech there was musical celebration at the scene. The entertainment was among others Michael Glick and then the rhythm boys from Safri Duo.

Before she went to Amalienborg she told IMAGE magazine's broadcast that she was very impressed by the initiative to raise money and support the Danish Refugee Council's work to build schools, wells and sanitation in DR Congo.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit in Copenhagen.

Crown Princess Mary celebrates Nordic designers

Quote
Fashion crown princess is again the lead in the Nordic designers hailed by Congress Copenhagen Fashion Summit in Copenhagen.

So is the entire Danish fashion princess back on the track in a good cause. Thursday held namely Congress Copenhagen Fashion Summit in Opera House in Copenhagen, which will focus on sustainable design.

The Congress is well visited and brings together players from Gucci to Greenpeace. The Crown Princess will play a vital role in awarding a prize for the Scandinavian designer who is most successful in creating a collection of sustainable materials, and as an advocate for the importance of sustainable fashion.

It awakens naturally enthusiasm that the Crown Princess has chosen to stand in front of Congress.

- Mary uses almost only Danish designers, and is a very important ambassador for Danish fashion, says Tone Skårdal Tobiassen, who is behind the initiative, minmote.no.

He also notes that the Norwegian royal family has the same tradition.

- There has never been any culture for that in Norway. In Denmark, the Danish designers are "courtsuppliers", he says.

HRH Crown Princess Mary: Can we change consumption, we can change the world

Quote

It was a well-prepared and enthusiastic crown princess, who took the podium on stage at the Opera, introduced by ballet master Nikolaj Hübbe and actress Connie Nielsen, who is the summit two hosts.

”Fashion and Textile is one of the largest industries in the world and is Denmark's fourth largest export area - hence the industry has a crucial role in the Danish economy. But the fashion industry also plays a more ufashionabel position as one of the most polluting industries in the world, "said HRH Princess Mary, and then focus on both environmental and social problems.

 Cooperation crucial
Then congratulated a clearly proud Princess Nordic organizers - with the Danish Fashion Institute, the lead - and welcomed the high percentage of international participants:

”In our globalized world, cooperation is crucial," she emphasizes, and continues:

”We are together because we share a common vision: to preserve our planet and our fellow men. History shows that consumers have a vital role in shaping both society and industry - see example in food or cosmetic industry. "

After having conducted the official opening of the Danish pavilion at Expo 2012 and visited the Australian and Korean pavilion the royal couple went outside the program and directly into the nearest Starbucks to grab a cup of coffee. The theme for this year's World's Fair is the sea, the climate and environment, and the Danish pavilion in the farthest corner of the large exhibition space on the waterfront of Yeosu is also built on this theme. Officially pavilions must not be used to advertise individual businesses, but it is apparent to any visitor that AP Moller-Maersk, Lego, Vestas and Grundfos are the major sponsors.

When Crown Prince Frederik has completed six marathons, cross country and countless mountain bike races, then it is ultimately in honor of his children.
- After I had children, one of the carrots for me also was that I want to be fresh, even when they become teenagers. Being able to experience something with them rather than be an old father, who may say 'Can't you run out and play?', Says Crown Prince Frederik.

For BT, the former Crown Prince Frederik said that he encourages his children to be active and exercise.

The Mary Fund annual Free of Bullying Child relay kicks off on Sunday the 3rd juni in Copenhagen And Århus. Crown Princess Mary participates, where she hand out medals to the children.

Quote
Crown Princess Mary handed out medals to 1300 children that ran relay in Fælledparken in the fight against bullying.
The Mary Foundation and Save the Children has organized together 'Children baton Free of Bullying 2012' to get children in day care and the youngest classes to focus on bullying.

The children were four on each team, each running one kilometer and when the kids came in goal was Crown Princess Mary, and DR Ramasjang hosts Beard, Mikkel and Sofie ready to give all children a medal each.
But before the race began, there were common warm up with dance, where Crown Princess Mary stood in front of the stage with the children and danced.

Mary Foundation and Save the Children has been drawn together a program whose goal is to make children aware of how to be a good friend, and that there is a difference between teasing for fun and tease really.

CP Mary said herself
- Where bullying is present, well-being is far from optimal. And this applies not only to the child who is bullied - or as a bully - but for the entire group that is present and looks on passively. For when bullying is present, it affects the whole environment of the group. It is therefore very important that we take a common responsibility to focus on bullying

So the stage is set for electric cars in Denmark. Thanks among others to Crown Prince Frederik, when he early on Friday morning inaugurated the company Clevers new nationwide public charging network for electric vehicles.

Denmark's first fast charger pedestal is at Landgreven 10 in Copenhagen just a minute's drive from the Royal Castle.

Frederik drove politically correct to and from the event in a Fisker Karma Ever hybrid car.

In my perspective CP Frederik has activities that are not as interesting as CP Mary. She support par example bullying amongst children while he has special interest in childrens olympics par example that are taken place in Denmark in these weeks. Children are set up in teams representing a country and are competing with each other in different disciplines. 

But in general it is my impression that CP Mary works more than any of the royals including QMII.

By the way Frederik had the flu last week  :tehe: , so he missed the footballmatch between Denmark and Australia and a private birthday where Elton John was playing.

Princess Mary made ​​a deep impression on everyone when she visited Glostrup Hospital to get an insight into working with stroke affected patients.
 67-year-old Else Weiss gave the Crown Princess flowers, and the royal guest thanked for the fine bouquet and smiled at Elsa, which is under rehabilitation after her third stroke.

 The meeting with Mary was such a big and warm experience for Else Weiss, that she got tears in her eyes as the Crown Princess took her hand. Also Mary was affected by the meeting, which she did not hide when she spoke with IMAGE-Blade after the visit.

The royal visit at Glostrup Hospital was a massive hit. Both patients, doctors and nurses were ecstatic with Mary, who reciprocated by waving to and take time to talk to as many as possible before she drove home to the Royal Castle.

The sweedes likes CP Mary better than CP Mette Marit from Norway

Quote
While the Norwegians and their fashion experts celebrates Crown Princess Mette Marit, the Swedes are quite different in their opinion about the Norwegian blonde.

They judge her to be bashing boring and the worst-dressed Scandinavian princess - only surpassed in bad style of Princess Märtha Louise, who is also Norwegian.

The Royal Swedish Swedish Damtidning magazine has asked readers who they think is the most well-dressed woman among the royals of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. And the answer is not to be mistaken.

65 percent of our Swedish neighbors believes that our Crownprincess Mary is the best dressed. Crown Princess Victoria was second and mother Silvia got third place. Our Queen Margrethe occupies fourth place.

Mary and Fred have three times as many employees as Kate, William and Harry together

Quote
They will inherit one of the world's smallest monarchies.

But they beat the English monarchy with several lengths.

For when Frederik and Mary enters the front door, they are facing a host of ministering spirits ready to serve them in a scale that may arouse envy in the English queen successors.

The Danish Crown Prince has namely three times as many employees as William, Kate and Harry. Together.

It follows from the recently published accounts from Prince Charles, where you can read that the two princes and Duchess Kate has nine personal servants.

Crown Prince Frederik and Mary, have according to their latest accounts 26 employees.

Although he will inherit the English throne, Charles and Camilla only eight personal servants.

Prince Charles has a total of 160 people associated with, but many are engaged in operating his business, which include agriculture.

Queen Margrethe has to compare 95 full time employees and paid in 2011 nearly 46 million kr. in wages.

I think that Prince Henrik sort of come from the 1800, as his family moved to Vietnam and like that went into a timepocket as many do when they get abroad.

But I have the impression that Frederik has managed to get into this century. At least he doesn't talk 1800 century danish like QMII and Joachim. (Prince Henrik talks with a distinct french accent - as in - it is difficult to understand what he says.)

Quote
When Crown Prince Frederik picks up his two children in public kindergarten in Fredensborg, it works, just as with other modern parents on a cycle with a large wagon front. Here are Christian and Isabella, both wearing a helmet when they go back to the home at Fredensborg Castle on two wheels. And like all other children late in the afternoon, Christian is tired and begin to plague as soon as they reached home. It can be seen in the second section of the DR documentary series Monarchy Inside this evening at. 20. 20th - Dad, I want to drive in the car, says the four year olds. - No, Christian. Not right now, answers Frederick. - YEEEES, plagues the little prince. - NO.  All day it is father who decides says Frederik to Christians big irritation but is lured with a piece of cake instead.

It has never been a secret that Crown Prince Frederik has had a strict childhood. And although he and Crown Princess will endeavor to lead a modern lifestyle as possible, it does not mean that father Frederik leaves the little Prince Christian be allowed to do anything. Der bliver sat grænser. There are set limits. -  Of course, they challenges you. Then one sometimes must bite in the grass and say stop. That they can respect rather than having a backbone like a cup of cocoa, says Frederick.  On the whole it is clear that the family insists on having such a 'normal' life as possible, the royal titles notwithstanding. - The Princess and I are basically -together with our children -normal people. We are well aware that we have unusual roles to perform, says Crown Prince Frederik.

Mary is also prepared for the task and the different lives that await the young heirs.  Especially with regard to Prince Christian, who one day take over the throne and become king of Denmark.  All children wants to be like other children, and he's going to stand out.  I give him a good, fundamental value, so he can be proud of who he is. So it becomes a strength for him, says Crown Princess Mary. - The most important is love and presence.  It is also important that children have the courage to be the person they are and the courage to say no, she says.

And I think he want to be a father with presence.

Quote
After I had children, one of the carrots for me also was that I want to be fresh, even when they become teenagers. Being able to experience something with them rather than be an old father, who may succumb and says 'Can you not run out and play by yourself?', Says Crown Prince Frederik to Active Exercise June number.

Crown Award is the father of 6-year-old Christian, 5-year-old Isabella and the 1-year-old twins Vincent and Josephine.

 And they can look forward to having a playful and active father for many years yet, if it were up to their father

Title: CP Frederik don't want to make apologies for himself anymore
Post by: HC on July 17, 2012, 07:26:28 pm

Quote
The big turning point in the Crown Prince Frederik's life came when he completed the demanding frogman training, where only the physics and psyche counts. Crown Prince stood it all through and agreed with himself that it was no more excusing that he is prince and future king of Denmark:

"When I finally got through Frogman Corps, I thought: Hell, no, now I do not bother to apologize anymore."

 "I have too long thought too much about what people think about me.  I do not longer want to apologize that I am a prince, and I have x number of privileges.  Now I've been through the navy seal training" he told the magazine.

"The education as navy seal was a turning point for me. It meant I could finally compare myself with others because I knew I had not been given any shortcuts. "

"I would like to be remembered as someone who made ​​a difference '
The 14 pagers portrait shows a man who rests in himself, but as the crown prince has previously told, also had a very hard time as a young man to accept his role as Denmark's future king.

Today he has accepted his fate, and he wants to make a difference when he meets people.

"I would like to be remembered as someone who makes a difference when I meet people," he said in the interview with the magazine.

During the four interviews with journalist Anne Sofie Kragh from May 2011 to May 2012 Frederick tells that he was a boy missing his parents' presence and confidence.

He was 11 years old when it dawned on him that he would one day be king. For an Easter at Marselisborg the Queen told, that little brother Joachim was to inherit Schackenborg and Frederik would inherit the land.

 The greatest care and confidentiality was not from his parents but from his grandmother, Queen Ingrid.

When asked what advice he would give if he met himself as a 13-year-old, is his answer:

"Be proud of who you are. That I did not hear enough then. "

There are two versions of the Danish crown prince. The formal and a little clumsy Frederik - and the Frederick who entertains and make people collapse with laughter.


Quote
The Danes see foremost of the formal, but in a new interview in Euroman is revealed the very private Pingo.

Læs også: Frederik og Mary: På sexmuseum Read also: Frederik and Mary: On sexmuseum

It is a friend of Crown Prince, who tells how he really is.

His friend, who is anonymous, refers to the country's next king as an entertainer.

He tells that the Crown Prince, among other things on the occasion of Mary's 40-year anniversary earlier this year made a bold speech to his wife.

- He is someone who makes a speech to his wife's 40-year's day when he asks if she prefers his upper body or lower body. And then gets a magician to saw him over so she can choose.

Unfortunately, the interview reports do not indicate what part of Frederik, Mary ended up choosing ...

Yes, very down to earth. And never unpleasant. No one has ever talked to him face to face that didn't end up a fan. So I've heard. (But Queen M is popular even if she can be quite unpleasant face to face - but perhaps not so popular to the ones she has  :Kate: to  :tehe:.)

CP Mary is the workoholic in the family. I like that she uses her position to talk about topics that are delicate as bullying, battered women, and immigrants. Not just visiting safe issues as children in hospitals.... Just my opinion.

Frederik and Mary are again fighting for danish export  :thumbsup:

Quote
Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik will lead a Danish business and cultural promotion with visits to the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte.

The program is as always packed and the royal couple will be able to experience the country focused on the development of Denmark's opportunities for cooperation with Brazil in the oil and gas industry, biofuels, water sector, medicine and medical equipment, education, tourism to Denmark and creative industries.

The Crown Prince shall amongst other things together with the Governor Geraldo Alckmin opening of a water seminar where the six Danish companies Grundfos, Danfoss, Siemens Turbomachinery Solutions, Haarslec Industires, MicroDrop and Liqtech International meet with decision makers from Sao Paulo State and water company SABESP. At the seminar will solutions for water supply and wastewater treatment be discussed, and the Crown Prince will be among speak holders.

The Crown Princess will par example visit Cidinha Kopcak, a support center for battered women. Behind Cidinha Kopcak stands NGO organization Geledés working for women and black people's rights.

It's ironic that Mary visited a battered spouses centre, when she is the one who "wears the pants", so to speak, in that marriage.  Poor Fred.  Have another beer, sweetie.

Battered women is an issue that CP Mary has as one of her main priorities.

But it is also a very important cause in Denmark.

As You can see in the Video - the danish minister of equel rights is also present i Brazil. (The man next to CP Mary).

CP Mary says to the tv reporter that:
"Violence is the same whether you are in Denmark or Brazil. And the violent spiral, as the women go through is the same. There is a need for a major information campaign to inform women in Brazil about what their rights actually are."

Post by: HC on October 06, 2012, 09:20:47 pm
National tv shows the annual crown prince couple award. This time the social award was given to a homework cafe. A lot of children don't have the social background where the parents can help with the homework.

But the homework cafe helps. Par example 2 girls had very bad grades in math but after some months they got acces to college.

Quote
In a feast of a show that will be broadcast live on the national tv channel1, distributes Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary the prestigious Culture Price and Social price 500,000 crowns and two cultural Stardust Prices on 50,000 crowns.

It's all tied together with a great range of popular artists who create a festive evening of entertainment for everyone.

CP Mary in accident with a cyclist

Quote
Princess Mary was very frightened when she Monday around 16.40 o'clock struck a female cyclist in a right turn on in Copenhagen.

Fortunately the clash happened but in very low speed, but the also frightened cyclist got an extra surprise when she realized who the driver of the car was.

I can confirm that the Crown Princess yesterday was on Østerbrogade where her car brushed a cyclist in a right turn. She was obviously frightened, and so was the cyclist also, and subsequently the two spoke together, says the court Communications and Media Relations Manager, Lene Balleby, to bt.dk.

According to witnesses on the spot Princess Mary immediately after the accident jumped out of her bronze-colored Land Rover to hear whether the cyclist was hurt.

Crown Princess has subsequently been in contact with the cyclist to make sure that she was all right, says Lene Balleby to BT.

There were no injuries during the incident.

^Land Rovers are inappropriate for city streets, especially if they have "bull bars" at the front.

I guess Mary only rides her own bike for PR purposes in one of the most famous cycling cities in the world.


Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: HC on October 23, 2012, 08:12:32 pm
I think that these bars are forbidden in Denmark.

A witness saw that the cyclist was a little preoccupied in her own thoughts.

Quote
A craftsman who work in the building right next to the scene, saw how the two collided.

- She swings to the right and the cyclist is a little in her own world, and then they came together. They were both shocked, and I think the lady on the bike got an extra shock when she discovered who she was facing, he told BT.

 Despite the unfortunate circumstances the two women found quickly pitch, and according to witnesses on the ground began soon to stand and chuckle together.

 Princess Mary was apparently particularly amused that the cyclist offered to send a text message.

But P Joachim has been driving very reckless with his 2 sons in the back seat.

Quote
The police are taking the matter seriously
"When we have finished interviewing the notifier, we will send the case over to the Justice Department. "He must of course not be allowed to drive like this," stresses Jorgen Thomsen. Photographer Michael Forsmark explains how Prince Joachim drove so fast and so close to the other cars that another motorist was forced into emergency lane.

"He ran very close to the other cars. At one point he was very close to crashing, "explains Michael Forsmark that after the hearing showed the police the place where Prince Joachim car came off the road.

We tried last night of get a comment from the court, but they did not want to comment on the matter.

CP Mary moved into a political minefield about birth control.

Quote
Princess Mary will today launch her first fieldtrip as an international advocate for women's right to decide over their own bodies. The trip goes to Mozambique, where 40 percent of teenage girls are pregnant.

It's a bit of a political minefield, as Crown Princess enters. Family planning, use of birth control and women's rights is a sensitive issue in many countries, but in Mozambique it is expected that Mary gets a soft start as contraception ambassador.

It is obvious that CP Mary snug out of the country together with the danish minister of developement to meddle in the affairs of Mozambique - just to annoy You.

Joke aside.

The Foreign Ministry has an aid program in Mozambique and CP Mary is invited by the Foreign Ministry to give her aid in the program.

Quote
Thus comes the Crown Princess and the minister both to visit the village community small clinics where everyday challenges of health, pregnancy and maternal mortality handled as well as key ministries where health plans designed.

The visit will also demonstrate the progress achieved in the Danish development in Mozambique in environment and support for climate change adaptation.

 Then the Minister will implement project visits related to the large Danish development assistance commitment that extends back to the sydøstafrikanske country's independence in 1975.

CP Frederik has found true love in CP Mary - according to this astrologer.

Quote
Moreover, the Crown Prince was born a few hours before a new moon, ie. while MOON strongly approaching SUN position. This often results in a strong inner stress state of the person, and in this case, a voltage of mental nature. The thoughts are running fast, sometimes so fast that they run riot. (..) The juxtaposition VENUS-NEPTUN gossip also about a man who has pretty high expectations for the woman he could love - soaring, both intellectually and emotionally. And he demands honesty and high ethics as well. (..) Frederick's comprehension is at least as fast as Mary, because MERKUR has square URANUS (and PLUTO), so sometimes he can - especially in the younger years - indulge in a pure principle discussion, just to get right. It MAY be just teasing! For Frederick has very much humor.
(..)
It is striking that so many coincidences and positive aspects we find between these two
(..)
Especially Mary Sagittarius-Jupiter suggests her flexibility and adaptability to the new, foreign relationship, as she encounters in his new country, Denmark.  Both, however, especially she also has a strong moral-ethical sense, which does not allow to act contrary to the inner sense of right / wrong. (..) Conversely teaches Mary's Saturn, which is right in the middle of Frederick's stellium (4 planets standing together): MOON, VENUS, SOL and MARS across the drawing border between Taurus and Gemini, Frederik that it is fine to be versatile gifted, but he also is required to exploit this talent into practice for the benefit of others. (..)Since Frederick's SOL actually stands WITHOUT ASPECTS to any of the other planets, can precisely this Saturn, as Mary presents him to give him a clear sense of his own identity, which he especially as a young man found in more extreme physical challenges.

(..) Mary just mentioned NEPTUN is accurate to Frederiks SOL, which may mean much, but including a deep fascination and love for him as an individual, a certain idealization of him and also an intuitive knowledge of him who did not have anything to do with the left brain. She reads him instinctively. Similarly, the Frederiks NEPTUN in Scorpio a favorable aspect to Mary VENUS, which works in much the same way: he captures her moods with his feelings and is just as in love as she.

It really looked like Mary and Mathilde had a good time talking with each other.

Here Amber Petty talks about her Christmas with CP Mary
Quote
Christmas with the royal couple and their four children seems to have made ​​an impression on Mary's friend Amber Petty.

After her return to Australia, she wrote on her blog about her experiences in Denmark and stressed that her country men could learn a little of the Danish Christmas and New Year traditions.
 On the blog describes Mary's 42-year-old girlfriend detail about the many chores.

-  Lunch on the day itself is not a big deal, it's Christmas dinner, that it is really all about. I'm not religious, but I enjoyed taking in the church in the afternoon, where many other families were together before they went home to start the real festivities.

A quick dance around the tree, holding hands with the family and sing songs was another tradition that I can not understand that I have never known. Yet a moment's real family celebration.

Then there was eating a traditional Christmas dinner, which ended with the kids finally got to run to the Christmas tree to see what Santa had left for them.

I must admit that this is the true test of endurance for the Danish children, but they have probably never known about the alternatives that our children enjoy.

 The following day, the 25th, it is possible to eat another family meal and spend more time together.  I love that Christmas lasts for several days instead of it just fills a day with us.

 Also New Year celebrations impressed Mary's friend.

- New Year's Eve spends many Danes again as a family, where it begins with the main event on the schedule, namely that all gather around the TV, even the kids, to see the Queen's speech, she says.

There was organized a party for the little ones so they could enjoy the party, including their own mini fireworks show before they were put to bed, and before the adults started their own, writes Amber, who also mentions the tradition of that Danes jump into the new year by jumping off a chair and give each other a hug.

Rubbing the chests wasn't a game or something? The rumour is that she tried Felipe first or was it Nikolaos? I think she went there was flirty with everyone who let her and she was lucky to catch Fred.

Felipe is also the godson of Vincent so some friendliness must be there not with Leti though  :June:

I think Felipe must be accustomed to a woman next to him wearing pants because Leti wears them a lot but she at least wears business suit, not too tight jeans. What I don't like personally is that Leti combines it with those ugly men shoes like e.g. during their last visit to Oviedo.

When it comes to Mary and that doomed night with Fred, Felipe and Nicolaos in that unfortunate inn, I thnik June once posted some links where all the story was divulged  :flower:

In Denmark women wear pants 95 percent of the time at work and at home. Unless we are talking about june juli where we have summer. And I think jeans are ok at a sport event. But the jeans are very tight on her.

I think that when Felipe is present it woul be ill mannered to send Joachim as Joachim is only the second son. And in my view Joachim is such an arrogant drunk idiot, that I would *despise* to see him represent my country at any event.

CP Mary is one of the most photographed women. I don't think that makes her narcissistic.

I've read that the danish press wasn't allowed to photograph at CP Mary and Frederiks visit to some zoo in Australia. Some australian photographers took some pictures anyway. CP Mary felt badly for this unfairness. So she asked the australian photographers to send their photos to the danish photographers that had accepted the wishes about not photographing. That is not narcissistic but shows a sense of fairness.

CP Frederik and Mary at their first statevisit, as they are stand in for QMII.

Quote
With a hike in the Andes and magnificent views of Chile's capital Santiago, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary began the official visit to the South American country together with the Foreign Minister Sovndal.

The visit lasts for five days, and the aim is to increase trade between Chile and Denmark. Representatives of the 55 Danish companies are participating on the official visit to attend a series of business seminars and meetings with Chilean companies.

A number of Danish companies in Chile is visited by the royal couple.

 This applies to Grundfos, Maersk Container Industry in San Antonio that is going to be the home of the world's largest refrigerated container factory outside China, FLSmidth's new super center for spare parts and customer service in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile.

The last visit will be a visit to a copper mine, where the Danish company Sunmark delivers the world's largest solar system.

Title: Cook tells about CP Frederik and Mary
Post by: HC on March 11, 2013, 06:10:21 pm
Bente Grysbæk tells about her time when she was cooking for CP Frederik and Mary

Quote
Bente Grysbæk was chef for Frederik, Mary and the children during their private holiday in Australia

The Crown Prince Couple and four children live on the polished floors, but when all is said and done, they are like any other Danish family - at least when it comes to food.

It can Bente Grysbæk testify.  On a daily basis she runs a Danish restaurant in Melbourne, Australia, but in the fall of 2011, she was offered a somewhat speciel assignment: Do you want to be in charge of cooking to the royal family during their private holiday down under.

Bente Grysbæk had already cooked for Frederik and Mary, when she was a chef at a French restaurant in Copenhagen.

-  When I saw them in the morning, I said good morning their Royal Highness.  But otherwise I just mentioned them in the third person. The kids I called by their first name, it fell more natural for me.

Both children were namely frequent guests in the kitchen and would love to help with making their own pizzas. And the Danish chef also experienced that Christian knows how to handle a knife.

 Once, we had to make smoothies, so I had prepared with bananas and raspberries.

 But when I had to cut a banana, said Christian: Aj, Eleanor, may I cut banana, because I'm pretty good with a knife, he would so like to show me, because I'm a cook. He was so sweet. And then he just took the knife from me and cut, laughing Eleanor, who is a mother of two girls aged four and six years, that she has with her Australian husband Zoran.

Although the sun baked down on the holiday makers Christmas was coming.

Therefore Bente Grysbæk and Christian and Isabella baked Christmas cookies and cakes with different color glaze on. Here Christian took care of tucking away the cakes on a shelf, so they were not eaten early.

But it was not only the children, who often found their way into the kitchen.  Also Mary was a studious and very interested guest.

Frederik and Mary also showed their appreciation for her efforts in some handwritten notes which they gave Bente Grysbæk as they said goodbye.

- When we said goodbye, I said that they should just say the next time they came down, I would gladly do it again.

Then said the Crown Prince: 'That We will do'. And I hope that they will contact me again, says Bente Grysbæk and makes no secret of how happy she was for the royal task.

Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik in school

Quote
The youngest class in Benjamin Viecuna Mackenna school for disadvantaged girls in Santiago, Chile, sat quietly at their desks dressed in identical dresses and hair finely plaited, when Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary came into their class. The young students had eagerly looked forward to meeting a real prince and princess, but they were a little reticent at first and looked down at the table. That Frederik and Mary quickly changed, as they got the girls to show what they were working with.
Kronprinsesse Mary og kronprins Frederik til klassens time med de yngste Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince

They welcomed, the fact that the girl pupils have been able to get a good education, although the havdelen of them are daughters of destitute single mothers.

Mary and Frederik looks happy

The Lockout of the teachers gives problems when the President from Finland comes to visit.

Quote
-I am in contact with the Royal Household daily, to find out what to do. And it is in agreement with them if we reject the visit. For it can not do any good to the First Lady and Crown Princess Mary if they comes out to an empty school, when they would like to see some teaching, says Henrik Carlsen.

 He makes no secret of the fact that the children will be very disappointed if they do not get to see Mary at their school on Friday, as they and the staff have been looking forward to for the last two months since the visit was announced.

I really liked QMII outfit in the last link. CP Marys white dress not so much.

P Marie look a little bored at the dinner. But then she can't have much to say to the primeminster Helle Thorning.

To something else:

Trademinister Pia Olsen Dyhr is concerned that the work CP Mary has done for Denmarks reputation is being destroyed by Marie - that is Marie Krarup - a danish politician.

Marie Krarup must apologize for her opinions about the Maori, says Trade Minister Pia Olsen Dyhr (SF).

Quote
Danish People's Party Marie Krarup is in the process of destroying Denmark's reputation in New Zealand and the surrounding area after controversial statements about the island's indigenous people, the Maori.

It says SF's Trade and Investment Minister Pia Olsen Dyhr.

-  Crown Princess Mary has marketed Denmark so well, but what Marie Krarup do right now is to put all that at risk, says Minister.

She believes that there are far fewer export dollars in replacing "Mary-effect" with "Marie-effect".

- We measure all the time on our reputation, and we know how some opinions have a direct impact on how people perceive Denmark in the world, says Pia Olsen Dyhr.

- And in the end it may destroy the Danish industry possibilities to export to New Zealand, she says.

Crown Princess Mary took place on the front row in the large conference hall where she immediately attracted the world press attention in the best way.

Mary should have been sitting in the front row along with Norway's Crown Princess Mette-Marit, but Mette-Marit bailed out at the last minute for the initial part of the conference day, so the Danish crown princess was the hall's biggest royal star.

Among the other profiles for the opening ceremony were former President of Finland Tarja Halonen and of course Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak with his first lady Rosmah Mansor.

After opening speeches and panel discussion at the highest level, left Crown Princess conference center and drove to Putrajaya Hospital to meet young mothers with diabetes and pregnant women who developed pregnancy-related diabetes

Kate, 31, lost out on the crown for 'Most Fashionable Royal' to Mary, the Crown Princess of Denmark - who is ten years older than her.

In a poll condcuted by MyVouchercodes, the pretty brunette came out on top with 68 per cent of women voting her as the best looking when it comes to fashion.

However, Kate wasn'y far behind her with 67 per cent and is loved by women across the world, particularly in the UK, who are desperate to emulate her style.

The results of the poll proved this point, with 62% of Britons admitting that they are willing to try a new fashion look or designer if their favorite royal has been pictured wearing it.

I wonder if they realize that 68% & 67% is more than 100%. I think Kate got about 10%.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark was evacuated from a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, after a demonstration among the migrants broke out during her visit.

 Mary, a patron of the United Nations Population Fund, was reportedly nearing the end of her visit to the Zaatari Refugee Camp, an hour from the Jordanian capital, when security was alerted that the Danish royal had to be evacuated for her own safety.

 A protest that was deemed aggressive had broken out among the migrants, who were reacting to Wednesday's nerve gas attacks in Syria.

Here are two articles about Frederiks lack of work ethic.
Of course he works more then Duchess Catherine, but it's simply to little for the heir to the throne.

Yes, the Crown Prince's calendar shows that he in 2011 worked 140 days to normal Danish the 220days, but is this true? A meeting of the National Council or rather the State Council counted as 1 working day, but what about the maybe 2 days of preparation that goes before this meeting. Some people think that the priests only work on Sundays or for Christmas, they have no idea that priests also doing other things during the week and between each July

As for how much the Crown Prince is working or not working the problem is rather that some believe that the Crown Prince should get himself a real job, that is what you typically think is a real job, namely a good old-fashioned industrial work where he stands and cuts plates out or makes for Vestas or cement bases for the same wind turbines at Aalborg Portland.

When the Crown Prince for example. are traveling to Viet Nam, it counts in the 140 days, but they maybe 2-3 weeks of preparation or more, we can not see. And the preparation involves probably a lot of meetings with the business community, politicians, etc.. to be on the trip. He has to be prepared to the teeth.
I've heard businesspeople tell that Frederik can sense the mood in a room and when to take the conversation that little step further to make that there may be contracts out to Danish companies.

And talking about his participation as par example, wedding guest in Stockholm and spectator to the World Cup, then that is Frederick's work. His work is in fact to represent Denmark. And the sailors, etc.. I sense a joy about this. Behind the scenes, for example. World Cup sailing working Frederik namely to get as many sports events to Denmark as possible, at the wedding in Stockholm, it is possible to talk to other people, both royal and within the business community more informal and strategic. And during the World Cup he was there to represent Denmark.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Countess of Holland on August 25, 2013, 08:54:17 pm
Like I said in another post in a another thread, a former l-i-w of Queen Beatrix told me that a state-visit of three days, usually takes about 4-5 days of preparation. Reading a dossier on the country that is visited, knowing the ties with the Dutch industry (often a Dutch trade mission would visit the country a week or 2-3 after the Queen visited the country) but also reading up on people she is about to meet; the mayor of the capital city, the PM or president of the country, the chairman of the Dutch club or Dutch community etc etc. All so she can make small talk as well as pose proper and intelligent questions.

As for the difference with Crown Princess Mary...that only seems normal. The two have a totally different role. Frederik will be Head of State one day and so his says will be filled with other sorts of work to prepare him for that task. Once Crown Prince Frederik is King, the work for Mary will not have to change so much, at least it was Princess Maxima who said that her work wouldn't change very much after becoming Queen.
And the two have a totally different personality and that has led to different focuspoints in their work as well. Crown Prince Frederik comes across as very introvert and one caharcteristic that many introvert people have is that they don't like small-talk very much. It has to be about something. They are also rather perfectionist and that can make someone rather insecure, especially when everything you do is monitored and criticised 24/7 by the public, by the press etc.

I think the two have a very good partnership where Mary supports some good causes (anti bullying and the UN Refugee work) while Frederik is focussing on his interests and his work in preparation of his future role.
And whenever Mary is abroad it would only be normal to expect that the prince is taken up a bit more parental tasks and that can take quite some time, especially with four children (four bedtime stories to start with :)).

Does he work as hard as the CEO of Maersk? No, probably not. And he doesn't work as hard as the average member of the Danish cabinet. But to say he doesn't work hard and is lazy without work-ethics. That is a bit strong in my opinion. We just don't see him do all his work in public and that is the same with all royals.

When I see Fred what I see is a man who spends a lot of time pouring from the bottle into a glass and then drinking it. I see a very weak man who is indulging himself in his own interests instead of on his royal job.

As far as the following them around 24/7 with cameras they all complain about that but realistically they are not followed anywhere near that much. I also notice that it doesn't bother them badly enough for them to give up all the perks.

Well I do think Fred spends a lot of time preparing for the iron man. Was it 7 hours and 45 minutes he did the iron man last week?

So I don't really recognise your picture of a man drinking beer "a lot of time" as You put it.

Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: HC on August 26, 2013, 05:50:20 pm
Okay.

You think an alcoholic can do an Ironman.

The Copenhagen Ironman Triathlon is consisting of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run, raced in that order and without a break.

So, I have a hard time believing an alcoholic can do this.

But then I don't know much about the Iron man nor alcoholism.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Countess of Holland on August 27, 2013, 06:08:06 am
Alcoholism runs in the family. His grandfather Frederik VIII was once engaged to Princess Olga of Greece but she broke off the engagement because of his drinking habits. In a way Ingrid of Sweden was a consolation bride who apparently accepted her husbands drinking manners.

That having been said, I highly doubt anyone could accomplish the Iron Man (in 10 hours I think it was, not 7, but still...not for me!) while having a drinking problem. The alcohol has a tendency to affect the build-up of muscles (in a negative way) and boy you needs muscles to get you through an event like Iron Man. Alcohol also negatively affects your bone structure, which is why women with alcoholism stand a bigger chance of osteoporosis (no wonder Cammie is so involved with it) and that makes it easier to break bones when you overwork them. And that is what you do with Iron Man; hips, knees, lower back, these bones need to be really strong and be able to take some bounces.
And lastly, alcohol also has a negative affect on white bloodcell counts, and that is needed to transport oxygen to the muscles in order for them to work. No way someone with a low white bloodcell count could accomplish the Iron Man.

Perhaps he has had his problems with alcohol, but him accomplishing the Iron Man, tells me that at this point he doesn't have a problem with it at all. He may drink occasionally, and perhaps a lot when on a night out with his friends, but that hardly makes him any different from any other men.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Snokitty on August 27, 2013, 09:14:19 am
I don't know if Fred is an alcoholic or not but he sure looks like someone who has spent to much time pouring a drink.

I have known many men who drink and can perform any functions needed in their life. Genetics plays a big part in who can do it and who can't.

I knew a man who drank his entire life and his family wanted it stopped not because he got violent or couldn't function at his job but simply because they had found religion and didn't like it. His Doctor told them his body had learned to function with the alcohol and if he stopped it would probably kill him. Everyone is different in what their bodies can withstand.

Like I said I have no idea whether or not Fred is an alcoholic but he strikes me as one.

Well perhaps we need a medical doctors help and opinion.

CP Frederik was in the navy seal some 15 years ago.

Since then his achievements are 6 marathons and this Iron man

I do not doubt that one can manage a job but I have a difficult time believing one can manage Navy seal, 6 marathons and an Iron man.

I thought the break off was because of his 2 twin sons with a doctors daughter from Horsens. But that is just a rumour I know.

Post by: Snokitty on August 27, 2013, 04:45:34 pm
Navy Seals drink alcohol. My brother was a Navy Seal and many of his friends were also drinkers they just can't be drunk during certain periods of time. Like the Iron Man thing the training and the event are more like a snapshot in time.

There are many sports related men who don't drink during training but make up for it once the game is over.

I have a minor knowledge of Danish but a good friend of mine speaks Frisian and she understands Danish and can read it quite good and she told me that the Danish Crown Prince wasn't focussing on gays, he was saying that discrimination of minorities was unwanted.
And frankly, I don't see how anyone can disagree with that. Apart of course from a few fringe parties like the Dansk Folksparti that can best be described as the Danish version of Le Front National or the Dutch PVV. Extreme right, populistic and not very friendly to any minority.

A few years ago, there were some reports that Frederick only did around 70 engagements per year.... so 140 must be exhausting for him.  :dontknow: :dontknow: 

I also heard that he got intense training to join the Olympic Commitee and things like that. Reminded me of Waity getting lesson in small talk.

Hey...just a thought: Perhaps Frederick would be better matched with Waity and Willy with Mary?!? Freddie and Waity could do sports when they´re not on holiday. And Mary could support the Queen representing her in the UK and abroad.
Well, Mary would be a good match for most European Crown Princes. She may be a social climber like Kate but she made the best of it and is doing her job with dilligence and dignity. The Windors would be lucky to get her. But sorry for the Danish then... They deserves better than Waity.

I watched the news yesterday where several women in Marrocco told about the domestic violence they had been suffering. One woman got a knife in her hand and afterwards the husbond locked her with gas turned on. He hoped the gas would kill her or ignite perhaps.

CP Mary said that it was important that someone would listen to these women and also give them a voice. She furthermore said that a lot of women movements did a lot for the cause but as she said "where are the men?"

This new virtual showroom will offer opportunities for Danish representatives abroad in arranging delegation visits to Denmark.

The building, situated in Vesterbro in Copenhagen, will provide an outstanding platform for telling the Danish success stories in energy, resource efficiency and water. The exhibition center will provide its audience with insight in Danish solutions through presentation films, Ipads and a large, interactive physical installation of the Danish energy system. House of Green also offers a visitor center, with capacity of up to 60 people. The center is intended as the first stop for delegation’s arrival to Denmark, and from which, they can continue their tour of visits around Denmark.

The services of House of Green are free of charge, made possible by a DKK 15 million grant from the Danish Industry Foundation to help the competitiveness of Danish business life, and will be run by State of Green on a day-to-day basis.

CP Frederik has a nickname for Mary

Quote
It may well be that the Crown Princess' name 'Mary', is already relatively short, but the Crown Prince has yet found an even shorter nickname for his wife.
As the Australian journalist Jane Wheatley, recently interviewed royal couple, there were several things that surprised her.

For example, she let herself be positively surprised by the Crown Prince.
"Prince Frederik is honest, a treasure - funny, disarmingly open, and a little restless, like a schoolboy who'd rather be out on the playground., He's an action man - sailing, skiing, jogging," she said to The Sydney Morning Herald.

But Jane Wheatley also noticed another thing: Frederik has a pet name for his wife.
"The prince calls her 'Maz' - and have adopted the Australian theory that no name is too short to be shortened," she says,

Since she in 2003 was presented as Crown Prince Frederik's fiancee, exports to Australia has more than doubled, which is more than other European countries during the same period.

According to Danish industry it can be directly attributed to Her Royal sovereignty former nationality.

The debate is: What is Crown Princess Mary Worth?

A DR program puts focus on whether there is a so-called Mary-effect that gives extra money for Denmark.
Thursday 14 November 2013 - by Nikoline Vestergaard

DR program Detector makes in his latest program focuses on how much power Crown Princess Mary's entry into the Danish royal family had.

In the past, many media dealt with the so-called Mary-effect that goes beyond the fact that the Australian-born Crown Princess has meant a lot for Danish goods exports to just Australia. And it is also often been interpreted as a truth that there are more Australian tourists to Denmark because of the Crown Princess.

Detector comes forward to that merchandise exports to Australia is indeed doubled since 2003, when the royal couple became engaged to Crown Prince Frederik, but from 1993 to 2003, the Danish export to Australia tripled. In addition, both Norway and Sweden experienced similar increase in their exports to the land down under.

Travelers Australians

As for the number of tourists, according Detector indeed a doubling in the number of Australian nights in Denmark from 2005 until 2012.

- But when Statistics Denmark does not have figures prior to 2005, it is difficult to say whether the great increase started after the royal wedding in 2004, writes Detector at DR News website.

Generally, states Detector firm, there has been a large increase in the number of foreign travelers Australians, even if they travel to Denmark, the other Nordic countries or the rest of the world.

Mary deeply distraught over child brides
The Crown Princess was as the patroness of the United Nations Population Fund UNFPA present at the University of Copenhagen last week as this year's report Motherhood in Childhood was launched. Population report focuses on pregnancy and child marriages in the world's developing countries.

Quote
Crown Princess believe that childhood and motherhood are two completely incompatible, and it cuts her heart to think that one in 10 girls today are married before the age of 15 years.
Mary was shocked that so many girls are still being forced to marry and abandon their schooling and the opportunity to get an education and support themselves. It was also with great seriousness, she saw the photo exhibition by photographer Stephanie Sinclair over the last decade have made about child brides hoping to raise awareness about child marriages and the consequences it will have for the girls to become mothers while they are still even only children.

Lee Radziwell was once an alcoholic while she was running an interior design business. She ran her own business while being soaked in vodka.

Here are two articles about Frederiks lack of work ethic.
Of course he works more then Duchess Catherine, but it's simply to little for the heir to the throne.
http://politiken.dk/indland/ECE1531831/kronprinsen-har-100-arbejdsdage-faerre-end-danske-arbejdere/ (http://politiken.dk/indland/ECE1531831/kronprinsen-har-100-arbejdsdage-faerre-end-danske-arbejdere/)

Princes of reigning families are often in limbo, unable to handle all they have going for them and I think his wife has been a bit of a hindrance. Like Kate, she's fully grown, but can't seem to get things right, things that she should have learned quickly. Mary hasn't opened doors and I think for the first time in his life, he's



Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Stargazer on January 25, 2014, 10:34:08 am
An interesting take on things, but isn't it the role of the heir to open doors, not the consort?


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 26, 2014, 08:32:50 pm
The job of the heir is to represent the country, often it is the job of the wife to end up with making things easy by networking and building successful bonds.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: cate1949 on January 27, 2014, 01:59:50 am
I very much doubt a active alcoholic could do iron man - Fred seems very bookish to me - more like he is involved in serious things that require lots of reading. listening to eperts behind the scenes stuff.  Plus he seems involved in his children very much.  He has done a lot of things I admire - so - maybe he could pick the pace up a bit - but compared to some of the others - he looks fine to me.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Countess of Holland on January 27, 2014, 11:46:36 am
The biggest 'problem' with Crown Prince Frederik is, in my opinion, is that he is very introvert. He isn't good at public speaking and he doesn't have the charisma some other royals (like Félipe) have. In the old times royals could get away with it, think King George VI or the Dutch Queen Juliana. But in this day and age with 24/7 media presence, it may raise some unwarranted red flags with some people.

I don't for one moment believe that he is an alcoholic. He might have been drunk in his younger years, but haven't we all?

As for opening networks...that is the role for the royals-by-birth. In the old days when royals married other royals, it might have been also a role for the spouse, but nowadays with commoners marrying into RF's, it falls on the royal to have a network and enlarge it. The spouse can be helpfull, but in a supporting role. Like Crown Princess Mary does with her work for the UN and Unicef.

Post by: HC on January 27, 2014, 05:16:01 pm
CP Frederik is not a public speaker as CP Mary.

But he is very good at talking to business opportunities says Danish Industri. As I recall they think he really connects with people he is talking to and can sell the product.


Title: Re: Fred's workethic
Post by: Countess of Holland on January 28, 2014, 11:05:02 am
That's not surprising. I see it a lot with colleagues of mine; some are very introvert (and insecure) and to compensate, they can dream their dossiers inside and out. And thus have a tremendous knowledge that comes to the forefront when you speak with them in a smaller group.

I get the feeling that Crown Prince Frederik isn't much different; he is at his best in smaller groups and away from the camera's. As a result people who judge him based on media-appearances say he isn't working, but people who work with him and experience him in person, will say quite the opposite.

And when looking at the teams I worked with and managed, all I can say is that you need both 'groups' of people in your team. And that is why Mary and Frederik make such a great team. She is the outgoing woman with the charisma and he is the powerhouse in the back.

Birthday Princess Mary's most touching maternal moments

http://ca.hellomagazine.com/royalty/2014020516705/princess-mary-of-denmark-birthday/
 
Quote
When Princess Mary of Denmark wakes up on her 42nd birthday on February 5, the first people to congratulate her apart from husband Prince Frederik, will be the couple's four children, Christian, eight, Isabella, six, and three-year-old twins Vincent and Josephine.

Quote
Talking to HELLO! a few years ago, the Princess described a typical morning in the royal residence.

 "In the morning we make porridge, and all sit around the dining table," said Mary. "Then we talk and eat, while our dog Ziggy runs in and out. It's really cosy."

 Frederik explained that they don't have help at the start and at the end of the day. "You could say we switch them on and shut them down! That's very special."

And how do you know that? From the public agenda of the couple I  get the impression that the prince is working rather hard on international relations (many trade-missions) and he is also from time to time Regent for his mother, meaning he has discussions with members of the Danish Cabinet. And you can't just come unprepared to such a meeting.
And what I understand from people in the Danish business community is that Frederik is always very well prepared on these trade-missions and is pretty good at making connections between people and companies/ products. That means he knows very well what it is the Danish companies are doing and you don't learn that solely by surfing the internet-pages of the companies involved.

Not so long ago there was a documentary on Dutch television about trade missions and one of the man involved said that to head a trade-mission and to be of use to the companies, he visits the companies, talks to the C-suite (CEO, CFO, COO etc), with trade unions, with people from the country that is to be visited (like embassy staff, but also journalists from that country, people working there etc). Now Frederik isn't the only doing all the work, but I wouldn't be surprised if he puts a lot of effort in these missions and the prep-work.
And all this behind the scenes, not visible for you and me (and the press).

I am pretty sure he puts in his hours, he is just less visible than his wife and that is the result of different character and preferences but also the simple fact that they have different roles now and in the future.

I never know what to think about Crown Prince Frederick an Mary of Denmark. You'd hope that they are happy but then you read things like Frederick being seen pawing blondes in a night club, the night before his twins were due to be christened, and you wonder.

He was there with several of Mary's siblings...you really think he will hook up with another woman while in the presence of relatives-in-law?

Frederik has had the habit over the years of his marriage of slipping the leash every so often. The Danes are very fond of their royal family but he has been caught drinking and getting friendly in clubs with young women who are definitely not Mary! The most notorious occasion was when he was seen nuzzling a blonde in a bar the night before his twins were to be officially christened. Mary looked a bit subdued on that occasion, but it's happened since.

Roselia forgets to mention that when he was out the day before the christening of the twins, he was out to a Copenhagen club with a sister of Mary as well as her brother and a brother-in-law. Mary's father was part of the group as well.
A perfect entourage to cheat on his wife indeed!

I mean, if he did, the guy has some serious cajones.


Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: HC on July 06, 2014, 07:22:10 pm
Indeed why and how should Frederik cheat the one night he was entertaining his brother in law etc. the night before the wedding.

And no, there has to my knowledge not been any rumours about Frederik about "slipping the leash" before or after this night out with the in laws.

Post by: cate1949 on July 06, 2014, 08:56:51 pm
I like Mary and Fred too - some complain about her - seem resentful about her commoner status  complain she puts on airs - but she is an attractive woman who certainly does a lot of work.  Fred seems a bit quirky but that too is appealing.  They certainly are a handsome couple.

I doubt those rumors re: the night before the christening .

That would not surprise me, Joachim always looks quite uptight to me.

And I understand that there has been some considerable backlash towards Joachim for leaving his estate and being bailed out by famous Danish brands like Lego and Ecco who have bankrolled the trust that now owns Schackenborg. So I doubt Crown Prince Frederik is pleased with the actions of his brother. As the heir, he will have to pick up the pieces, just like King Felipe is now working hard to pick up the pieces of his sisters disastrous behaviour.

This evening, a Dutch program, RTL Boulevard, showed a small part of a spontaneous interview with the Crown Princely couple in Greenland.
The Crown Prince said that he had been looking forward showing his children the country that he loves so much. He loves the wild nature, the rough conditions, the size etc.
The Crown Princess said that this was a good way for the children to get used to royal life 'You can't push them, so you can't start when they are too young. But they are at a good age now'.
She also said that the trip with the Danneborg is wonderful because it enables them to decide per day whether or not the children will come along. When they are too tired for a trip, they can stay back at the Danneborg and go fishing (I guess with one of the nannies) or do something else to relax and rest.
It was nice to see the couple so relaxed and a far cry from the rather paranoid and uptight behaviour of the Dutch King towards the press (something he inherited from his mother and will/ has pass(ed) to his daughters I'm afraid).

Crown Prince to help Danish exports on the way
A Danish business promotion with over 80 companies begin Tuesday in the world's second largest country.
Quote
Around 80 Danish companies are on the trip to try to increase Denmark's exports to the geographically vast country. Leading the delegation will be trade and development minister Mogens Jensen (S).

- Canada has good potential for Danish companies wishing to establish or expand their operations in the country. With the royal couple at the head of the business delegation, we can not offer Danish companies a better chance to show off, says Mogens Jensen in a statement.

Quote
Denmark exports to Canada for approximately eight billion dollars annually, which is not much compared to other trading partners. In fact, the only Canada to the 24th largest export market. But a future free trade agreement between Canada and the EU are expected to affect exports.

- We expect an increase of about 30 percent of Danish exports to Canada as a result of the FTA between the EU and Canada, when fully implemented. The agreement means that companies from duties and taxes on virtually all goods except for a few agricultural products, said Mogens Jensen.

The agreement between the EU and Canada have been under way for several years. The former Danish Trade Minister Pia Olsen Dyhr (SF) was in April 2012 also in Canada - on behalf of the EU - to participate in negotiations on the FTA.

About 40 percent of Danish exports to Canada consist of medical and pharmaceutical products. During the visit participating Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary and Mogens Jensen, therefore, in celebration of the 90th anniversary of cooperation between Canada and Denmark in diabetes treatment.

Business promotion will focus on four specific sectors besides health and pharmaceutical products also include fashion and design, architecture and construction, and agricultural and food products.

Forget the outfit! Princess Mary of Denmark breaks with tradition and steps out in racy $1,400 Louboutin snakeskin heels with Prince Frederik on Canadian royal tour

She is watched like a hawk by followers desperate to imitate her exceptional style.

And on Friday the normally conservative Princess Mary of Denmark broke with tradition when she stepped out in a pair of racy Louboutin snakeskin heels - costing a princely $1,400 - as she accompanied Crown Prince Frederik on a royal tour of Canada.

Dressed in a stylish A-line skirt, and crisp white shirt, the Tasmania beauty, 42, struck a elegant figure as she stood beside her suited husband listening intensely to a speech hosted in Toronto

Can someone explain to me why a British newspaper would use the dollar to tell their public how expensive the shoes are? Because that is the highest number? Higher than in euro's or pounds? If so, they could better have used the Danish krone, that would make it over 8000.

As for the shoes...hideous. I don't like the snake skin at all. I wouldn't wear these shoes if someone paid me to.


Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary on business promotion in Canada

Yes CP Mary should start wearing Sargossa.

Sargossa stilettos are a product of extensive research & intelligent design and the debut collection brings a range of fashionable & sexy styles that have been beautifully crafted with a custom designed, ultra soft insole created especially to take the pressure off the foot and give postural support. The result is a beautiful pair of stilettos that can be worn with ease all day.

The road to creating the collection was paved with two years of extensive research with doctors and engineers to understand the nuances of feet and how to achieve that perfect chemistry between heel height and comfort. Backed with the knowledge from top foot surgeons and engineers, the result is a perfectly formed heel, which declines at the optimum level, with beautiful designs created around a seamless base.

Each pair is complete with a specially integrated, patent pending insole (#1402326.1), made to create a cushion of comfort. Ultra soft, the use of medical grade, shock-absorbing foam gives the ultimate wearing experience. With the weight seemingly off the feet, Sargossa stilettos will revolutionise the way you wear your heels.

http://sargossa.com/
http://sargossa.com/intelligent-design/

The girls looked great both on and off the catwalk and we loved seeing these behind the scenes shots of the models before and after the show. As many a model will attest to, catwalk heels are rarely pleasant to walk in so it's a real testament to Sargossa's comfortable heels that they kept them on even off the catwalk.

Re: the mystery blonde - people have been talking bout this frequently and I did read where the woman had been identified - forget who she was but nothing quite as scandalous as it appeared.  Although he did seem  to be drunk.  Fred is a mystery - so many rumors and of course it is hard to know what to believe.  But he seemed very supportive and proud of his wife at the awards ceremony.

Worst scandal in a long time.

Cp Frederik drove across a bridge that was closed due to the storm. First he lied about it. Then he apologises. Lots of people had waited on the bridge to open for several hours. He could also have endangered rescue personnel if the crossing had ended in an accident.

I've read about a controversial new book about these two, have you read it? I'm curious about the story of Mary and the bodyguards that were fired because of her or something like that?

Firing security?

Uppity brat; she has no business getting snotty towards her security officers. If not for her status she wouldn't even have such protection and those officers protect her from profoundly crazy and disturbed people.

Post by: Alexandrine on January 12, 2015, 09:02:56 pm
Not like that. Frederick firing bodyguards because they got to close to her because she is nice and people get friendly easily with her. It was supposedly done without her knowing. Or at least I understood that and it's the reason I'm asking because I'm super curious.

Post by: Countess of Holland on January 13, 2015, 01:02:44 pm
Really girls...not everything that happens is the fault of the royals.

From what I understand from a Danish relative of mine (my grandmother was Danish), the story is that several bodyguards got a bit too easy and friendly with Mary in a way that they didn't keep their professional attitude around the family, which is needed for them to stay alert and keep the family safe.

As a result, the head of the secret service, which is a government agency and falls under the jurisdiction of the Minister of Justice, decided to first replace these bodyguards and transfer the ones who were too friendly to another security detail (guarding the parliament, is the rumor in Denmark). But apparently that didn't work out and so these men were fired.

Another bodyguard who claims to know what went on, has now written a book about the whole affair. And the newspapers, who want to sell papers, have made it about Mary and Frederik because they sell (unlike Waity). But I don't see how it is Mary's fault or mistake that a few bodyguards became to relaxed around the family and were unable to retain a professional attitude.
She probably made a mistake of saying a kind word to one of them like requiring after their health after a period of absence or something like that. Not a mistake she will make again, so she will now be painted as aloof, arrogant, uppity or something like that.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

Positively blooming! Princess Mary pays tribute to Japan in form fitting cherry blossom dress while she and husband Prince Frederik tour the country


They are fast approaching their eleventh wedding anniversary, but on Friday Danish royal couple Princess Mary and Prince Frederik looked as loved up as the day they married in May 2014.

The couple, who were seen touring Tokyo together, are enjoying a three day Japanese trip for the official opening of an exhibition about Greenland, named Spiritual Greenland.

And in honour of the host country, 45-year-old Mary was careful to don a form-fitting dress featuring a beautiful cherry blossom print.

A Danish friend of mine told me that it was said in Denmark that the Crown Princely family would spend most of their summer at Grasten Palace and that the management of the palace is kind of handed over to Frederik. This was mentioned by Queen Margrethe during the trip to Greenland.

Considering that Grasten is, like Shackenborg, in the south of Denmark, I think that the Queen essentially has answered your question.

Post by: HC on August 03, 2015, 06:52:18 pm
They also said in the radioprogram that the photoshoot in Graasten was a tradition and it was not ok that Joachim and Marie didn't bother to arrive at the event.

The discussion went further about Frederik and Joachim growing apart back to when Joachim and Alexandra was getting a divorce. Joachim is still angry that Frederik was on Alexandras side in the arguments leading to the divorce.
On top of this Joachim was against Mary when she later on appeared as Frederiks wife to be.

So Frederik and Joachim has lots of discussions.

It was also mentioned that Joachim in his last interview has said Frederik is a man with strong opinions and is not afraid to speak his mind.
The radioprogram interpreted this as Joachim critisizing Frederik.

All gossip but dont we all love it  :tehe:

Mary likes to go back to Australia every few years to lord it over the folks in Tasmania.  Her behavior in Australia is always interesting viewing. One year, things were so disorganized that Fred and his security were locked out of the posh rental house while the rest of the family was off having fun (all caught on film).

Never seen any stories about that, but I guess it is difficult to be in 'your old life' in a new capacity. Maxima has the same problem when in Argentina. But also f.e. at the wedding of her younger brother in Vienna a few years ago when she wore a massively gala dress, bigger, more glam than the bride.

However, that's not the only family feud! Remembering from past years I believe Joachim&family didn't spend it with the rest of the family. There was a bit of going ons with the Queen and Henrik spending it one side or the other. Last year they did the big party all together but it hadn't been the usual.

I'm still expecting to see the agenda for the trips if there is any.

Last year was a huge event, with 40+ members of the family. MC of Greece was twittering and instagramming photos. They don't usually have a family party that big at Christmas. Maybe it was an anniversary year of something?  It seemed to be a command performance.

J&M usually spend Christmas with Margrethe and Henrik, Mary and Fred don't always. It may be that they spend time with her father and his wife during that time?  J&M seem to spend time at Caix with Margrethe and Henri, while Mary and Fred vacation elsewhere.  Henrik/Henri may like having a French daughter-in-law around, because he's so proud of being French himself. 

Maxima and W-A bought a property in Argentina, quietly, where they are generally unseen and left alone.  They may visit often, but they do it out of sight. I wish that gown of hers had been saved for a royal event, but Max is Max - always Maximally OTT when it comes to clothing.

I am referring to boundaries about Mary's behavior and garnering publicity for herself, rather than money.  It seems her wings have been clipped over the last year.

I think Mary is beautifully dressed, always; however, I believe that she needs a nicer tiara and don't know why Marge won't let her have one.

But where do you see that their behaviour has changed? I agree that this trip is different from the last but this time it's private and the other had a public agenda.

Danish coffers do not have a lot of tiaras. Some are only for the consort/queen and Alexandra got one from the rest. Mary got one from Fred and the other was a present. There's not tradition of sharing like it works in Sweden or Netherlands.

^ It seems that Fred moved to the forefront of their relationship this past year whereas in the past Mary took center stage.   Her three weeks in Grasten this summer was different, as was her solo trip to Palma de Malorca afterwards when Letizia was there -- seeming as if she was looking for some publicity after being grounded at Grasten.  And now in Australia.  She doesn't seem thrilled to be there and I would think she would prefer to spend the holidays in her palace and then fly to Australia when the festivities are over.   This is all just my opinion, of course.   Just my feeling that I get in watching the events and looking at body language.

I think Marge has stepped in in Denmark (as Liz has in England) and has told the Crown Princess to tone it down and remember who the heir is, while telling the heir to step up his game.  That's what seems to me to be happening.

mmm what you see as negatives for her I find positive. I don't know what you mean about difference in Grasten and would love to hear more. But for ex being able to holiday out of the country with the kids means that she has the freedom to move around and take the kids with her. I don't understand what Letizia plays here? That she wanted to take publicity from her? If I'm correct she wasn't even there when Mary went and Mallorca has always been a place where lots of royals and celebs visit. Starting with the Casiraghi ending with Diana.

This is the only moment that they can visit. For news years they have the official galas and they can't avoid them. It would look bad if they were holidaying during them.

Imo the whole family is very complicated, probably one of the most dysfunctional in the royal world. I don't know what happened during Margrethe's bday with Henrik but where people see bad vibes due to Mary I think it will probably come from there.

^Here are my thoughts on the matter.

Christmas in Australia - Fred and Mary's children have not been to Australia in four years.   Why are they being taken away from their home and friends at a time when there are many activities at home?  Yes, they need to know the maternal side of the family, but the timing just seems odd to me, and they are staying for a long period of time.    Marie is not taking her children to France for two or three weeks over Christmas; rather Marge and Henrik are spending Christmas with Joachim and Marie and their children in Denmark while the Crown Prince Family is in Australia.   And there was only a brief statement announcing that they were going; no quotes from Mary saying she was so homesick and wanted to have a Christmas like she had as a child, etc., etc.  No real reason was given; just that they were going. 

Summer in Grasten - Mary told the press that this summer was the first year her family "had to be" at Grasten for so long.  Now, perhaps the meaning was changed in translation, but that was an odd way to put it.   Normally the Crown Prince Family is there for a very short period of time for the annual photoshoot.  This time Mary and the children arrived without Fred (who was in London by himself at Wimbledon) and they stayed for three or four weeks.  The family did not take a vacation beforehand to a warm spot, but Joachim and Marie did.

Wimbledon 2015 - Fred went without Mary.   She went with him last year, and I'm sure she would have loved to have gone this year, but he went alone, and she and the children went to Grasten.

Mallorca - At the end of the Grasten sojourn, Fred went on an official visit to Kuala Lumpur (without Mary).   Mary popped up without the children in Mallorca which, according to this article, was a surprise to the media who were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Queen of Spain.  The last sentence of the article points out that "Obviously, Mary of Denmark was not unnoticed, since, as everyone knows, these days Mallorca is one of the major capitals of the world in number of paparazzi."   Implying, in my opinion, that Mary came to be noticed.       http://www.mujerhoy.com/corazon/realeza/vacaciones-mallorca-mary-dinamarca-903285082015.html




Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: Alexandrine on December 09, 2015, 09:15:52 pm
But consider that Marie can go to France whenever she wants. She has cancelled a couple of events last week because her grandmother is ill and she was visiting her. Mary can't simply go in one day and go back.

Supposedly years that they didn't meet with the Queen in Christmas Mary's family stayed with them. But even if they fund the trip it must be quite difficult to mesh agendas and having kids they have to go to school. This trip is similar to the previous one they did for Christmas. I don't see the weirdness here  :dontknow:

I'm not surprised about the lack of info about the trip they want it to be private so there is no public agenda. For me it would sound much more strange to make an announcement that Mary was desolated and simply needed to be in Australia this year. That would have been a total slight to the danish people as she is not Australian anymore and a public representative of Denmark.

I also don't see the problem of staying at Grasten during July? Fred has gone alone a lot of times to see tennis matches so it's not the first time and probably not the last. Other years they decide to do a cruise, I think this year they didn't. But although I'm sure they make a trip to other places during the year their summer holidays are usually quite public. I don't know where Joachim and Marie spend the summer but they weren't around for the photos at Grasten http://kongehuset.dk/materialemappe/gallerier/2015/juli/fotografering-pa-grasten-slot/7.img

The article in spanish starts like that but the rumours that got more traction at the start of the summer was that Maxima was going to be staying for the holidays. When Mary popped up was a total surprise so the trip was carefully hidden and they only went noticed when they went around the town center. Considering the real source of your article which is ABC there is no second reading in that phrase and it's more like "she didn't try to hide herself because with the large number of papzs it's difficult to go unnoticed". And they didn't meet with spanish couple which to me really sounds weird as Felipe is the godfather of Vincent and at least he could have visit.  :-


Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: Miss Hathaway on December 09, 2015, 09:57:54 pm
All of these things can be rationalized away; however, to me, it is the difference of the behaviors that causes me to believe there is something afoot in Denmark.

There has usually been some back story about Mary's trips to Australia.  Even if it's just gossip, there has been a reason.  This time, I have not seen a reason.  Perhaps someone else has?    For instance, here is a Woman's Day article about the family's trip to Australia in 2011 and how Mary WANTED to stay for Christmas that year but royal duties called them back to Denmark:   http://www.womansday.com.au/celebrity/australian-celebrities/crown-princess-marys-family-crisis-4901

There is no problem with them staying for a month at Grasten except that it had never happened before.  Why this year did their visit go from they typical day or two to three or four weeks?

It's also not a problem for Fred to go to Wimbledon alone, but his wife has gone with him when their kids were younger; and I would think that anyone would want to go to Wimbledon and sit in the royal box.  There was no reason for Mary not to have gone with him. 

As for Mallorca, the Spanish king and queen had invited the king and queen of the Netherlands to be their guests at Mallorca.   The Crown Princess of Denmark popping up uninvited (while her husband, the Crown Prince, was overseas on an official engagement) at the same time that the Spanish Royals were to begin their holiday was bad form.  It presented an issue as to whether or not she would be invited as a royal, and I read that she would/should not be as Fred was not with her.   But it was rather rude of her to do so; it made her appear to be angling for an invitation whether or not she really was.  And it does appear that the media tweaked her a bit about that.



Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: Alexandrine on December 09, 2015, 10:07:26 pm
^No one knows if they had been invited or not as they didn't appear. Lots of royals pop up in Mallorca during the holidays? Some have stayed in Marivent but many haven't. If Fred had been with her it wouldn't have been any different.

There is no obligation of staying in Marivent. And you don't need an invitation to visit a country. Nearly every RF has stayed in Spain for holidays one time or another and most of them wasn't due to an invitation.

It's not that Fred can go alone to sport events is that usually he goes alone. Wimbledon last year was the exception more than the norm.

The events you cite are more about their marriage than anything. I still don't see any change of behaviour from these two from recent years.

The trip in 2011 was an official trip http://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/prince-frederik-and-princess-mary-visit-australia/ I'm not even sure the kids were with them.

Post by: HC on December 10, 2015, 06:09:00 pm
The stay at grasten was because queen m decided they should take over the place. Perhaps because Marie and Joachim has sold their place in the area. So Mary and Frederik should be the royal presence in that part of the country


Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: Miss Hathaway on December 15, 2015, 05:37:31 pm
^^Alexandrine, the word was that Willem and Maxima were invited but cancelled when Letizia's grandfather died.  But then the Crown Princess of Denmark popped up at the same time the Spanish Royals were coming in for their holiday.  It wouldn't have been remarked upon had Mary come before the Spanish Royals' holiday or after, but she came at the same time.  This is like Haakan and Mette deciding to holiday in Crathie and showing up the same day Queen Elizabeth begins her summer holiday at Balmoral.   The royals have their schedules all planned out in advance, even on holiday.   It's kind of rude for the resident monarch to ignore visiting royals; but it is rude of the unannounced royal showing up on the doorstep of the vacationing resident monarch, appearing to be angling for an invite.  It brings unwanted stories in the media:  "Will Liz invite Haakan for tea?"   "Is Liz Ignoring Haakan?", etc.     If Haakan flew in for a day in London on business of his own, that would not be the same as going to a small vacation spot at the same time as the Queen.  That is what Mary did. 

Fred and Mary went to Australia in 2013 without the children, but the last time the children went was 2011.   Is Fred in Australia now?  Has any seen a photo of him there?

Wimbledon, I'm not sure how many Wimbledons Mary and Fred have gone to separately or together.  But supposedly they were drawn together in the beginning because they both were sporty and athletic, so one would think they would enjoy athletic events together.  It is just odd to me that they went together last year and this year he leaves her alone at Grasten and goes by himself.  Surely, she would have enjoyed going as well?  And, yes, I think that speaks to the state of their marriage.  So I think that Mary popping up in Mallorca was her "payback" for Fred not taking her to Wimbledon and then he went on to an overseas engagement.  She knew there would be plenty of cameras and her trip there would be publicized for whatever reason she wanted it to be made public.

^HC, I went back and read your remarks about Fred and Mary taking over Grasten.  That fits in with what I am thinking, that Fred and Mary were requested to stay there for the summer and Fred came and went while Mary was there with the children and she was not happy about that. 

And back to the Christmas in Australia -- there has been very little news about this visit.  No photo of Fred at all.  Just a couple of shots of Mary and some of the kids and her sister at a shop.   In the past, Mary would typically walk around in outside markets and restaurants with the children, but none of that this time.  It's very different this year from how it's been in the past.

^ It is a private visit and not, like in 2013, a formal visit. So they won't make any official stops (like meeting the Danish people in Australia, or meeting Danish entrepreneurs etc).

I think the Dutch King and Queen will travel to Argentina for Christmas, as Maxima's father is said to be ill (cancer). But this too will be a private visit so I don't expect many pictures. Perhaps one or two that are published on the royal website and that is about it.

^^ That Aussie TV movie of Mary and Frederik's romance wasn't exactly a ratings bonanza. I do think though that if the family had stayed in Tasmania or in or around Sydney there would probably have been more photos and stories about them. As it is they and extended family seem to be enjoying a road trip around the region of Margaret River in Western Australia, which is lovely but remote. Not many paps hanging around the small towns of the area.

The DM provides a map and schedule of sightings of sorts. It's clear the family aim to fly under the radar, though where exactly they are all spending their nights isn't clear.

Not one shred of evidence that the royal entourage was at the amusement park.  Not one cellphone shot?   No paparazzi is at all interested in getting a photo?   Unlike every summer when their trips to Legoland are covered by the media:

Title: Re: CP Frederik and Mary: News & Pics
Post by: Countess of Holland on December 18, 2015, 04:31:40 pm
You must realise that internationally speaking, the interest for the Danish RF is a lot smaller than for any of the other RF's. Two years ago (or was it three already? Time flies) the Dutch RF visited Macho Picchu in Peru. Considering that this is a big tourist place, it was quite amazing that there were only a couple of pictures and only because several Dutch tourists were there as well.

I doubt the amusement park is a big draw for Danish/ European tourists who might have recognized the couple and their children. So it is very believable that they were unnoticed. Also the continental RF's travel with less security officers than the BRF which makes their entourage smaller. So for outsiders who don't know the Danish royals, they might have looked like a big family; several siblings and a few children.

Perhaps someone let it slip afterwards, someone from management hoping it will boost the visitor numbers.

Thanks. Obviously you are more familiar with that particular mall. In the malls I usually frequent, there are all kinds of shops, including perfect shops for Christmas shopping.
I take it this was more a mall for clothes. Perhaps the girls needed some new summer clothes, they are hard to buy in Europe at the moment and both are at an age that they can grow out of a clothing size within a month or two-three.

This whole trip feels a bit strange, doesn't it?  She isn't known to hide when in Australia and usually welcomes the cameras. In the past, she's shown up at big markets or events and had no problem being photographed.

The denials about the seriousness of the swimming incident aren't doing them any favors. Someone saved their child and they're pretending the lifeguard and crew are exaggerating.  Could have been handled much better. They probably have another week in Australia before they return for the big 2-night New Year event in Denmark.

They will definitely return to Denmark before New Years Eve for the simple reason that on January 1 the Queen always hosts her traditional New Years Reception, which is a big gala event and the couple has never missed that.
This New Years reception is like the UK Troooping the Colour...missing it is not an option.

And I seriously doubt the couple will fly into Copenhagen on January 1 and rush to the reception, jet-lagged and all. So they will return to Denmark before December 31. And probably already the Sunday or Monday after Christmas.

There has been some speculation that the Queen sent Mary to Australia for a "time out" because of a spate of stories from last year suggesting that the Queen would step down and  Mary was ready to step up to the plate.  This would expain the lack of papparazi/professional photos, the lack of a family pose, and lack of Mary going on walk abouts, and Mary's downcast demeanor.

There is a difference between being out as a royal, with no doubt someone doing her hair and all, and with Mary as a private person, which she is here during her trip to Australia.

I can guarantee you that when you see Maxima as a private person (like shopping for shoes with her daughters) you hardly won't recognize her either. I didn't, until she spoke.

I think that in this regard royals are not any different from regular people, I most certainly dress differently when I go to work than when I am on vacation or during the weekends.

It could be me, apparently I don't study women and their appearances as close as some of you do, but I don't see any difference between Mary on a private vacation in Australia or some of the other pictures I found of Mary on previous private trips, whether to France (with the in-laws) or another location.

I can't help but feeling that some people want to see something that just isn't there. No problems in the marriage and I don't see any problems between the Queen and Crown Princess Mary either. Sure, there have been stories about Mary wanting to become Queen, but 1. I seriously doubt that because she knows what it will mean for her family-life and 2. I seriously doubt this will be a driving a wedge between the Queen and Mary because the Queen is able to value these ridiculous press stories. The Danish press has been writing about a possible abdication of QM for years. First when she suffered severe back-problems, then when Prince Henrik threw a few tantrums and now again.

The Danish press is just making up stories, that is what the gossip press does. And as gossip about fights and trouble sell better than stories about a trouble-free relationship between the two women, they make up stories.

^^ The links of Mary above show that her hair is neat and she looks put together even though vacationing.  The oversized jacket in the second link is horrible but her hair and makeup is fine.  Those photos are different, in my opinion, than the recent ones of her with disheveled hair, odd outfits not in her usual style, no wedding ring, etc.   

^ If they are already back in Denmark, Roselle, then there really is some problem, in my opinion.  I feel sorry for those children who were yanked around during their Christmas holidays.

^^ According to a Danish friend of mine they are still Down Under and expected to arrive back in Denmark on December 29.

^ The fact that you want something to be weird doesn't make it weird. To me this is perfectly normal; they want to spend some time in the country of Mary, show their children her roots. And it makes sense to escape the Danish winter (although winter hasn't really arrived in northern Europe yet...warmest Christmas ever in The Netherlands) and travel to the Australian summer. The Dutch royals probably have done the same thing but because of the strict Dutch Media Code, the Dutch press won't publish anything about it since it is private.

The Dutch travel under the radar and stay at a private resort/home in Argentina.  They arrange to stay in a private place and they stay there, instead of dragging their kids from shopping center to shopping center.

Mary is touted as a stylish royal, but her style is overseen by at least one stylist. She is seen wearing things straight as they appear on the runway, which shows me she has no personal sense of style but merely copies what the professionals put together. This shows up, IMO, in how she dresses in private and how she dresses the children who often look ragtag compared to other royal kids.

The kids were removed from school 2-3 weeks early for this.  From what I've seen, they're just going to shopping centers and the beach, no museums or science centers. Taking them out of school early, only to have them being seen bumming around Australia doing nothing for a month? That sets a bad example to me. For local schools, parents are penalized for taking kids out early. It causes extra work for the schools, teachers, and is disruptive to the other students. They should set a better example.

Meanwhile, there are lovely photos of the rest of the Danish royal family attending Christmas mass complete with Marie's parents.

We don't know what the dutch do or most of the RFs do because they keep it super private and have deals with the press. At least we can criticize these two because they let the press photograph them which is one of the things I like best of the DRF.

Personally I don't see the problem with having a stylist. I agree that Mary has little sense of style on her own (although I do think she has improved a lot) but she had the sense to employ good stylists and it shows. She doesn't always wear things as seen on the runway, she combines a lot and uses both local and international brands. I would say that every royal has a stylist be it official or unofficial. But comparing to the rest Mary has a consistent style and keeps it appropriate.

I agree that the kids clothes the first years were not the best. But I wonder if the gray and sad clothes is something a bit cultural as Leonore of Sweden wears also a lot of gray.

I think it is fine, as well, that Mary has a stylist.  I think every royal lady should have a stylist.  I like Mary's look and think she wears her clothes well.  Her hair looks nice and if she uses extensions/pieces, it is done skillfully.

Evidently, she did not bring a stylist with her on this trip.  The royals brought an entourage with them, so that is odd.  This whole trip has been odd with the abrupt announcement of the trip with few details, very little media exposure at the beginning, and now a series of photos on the beach, along with a rumor that they were back in Denmark.   It seems their holiday has been a series of coffee shops, outdoor restaurants, mall shopping and the beach.   I cannot think of a more horrible way to spend Christmas, just my opinion, as I like tradition and am not fond of the beach.

I look forward to the royals' body language on New Years.

However, to each his own and Fred, Mary and the children appear to be having a great time in the sun. It's a real break and they will hopefully come back refreshed.

They did bring an entourage, including a life coach, which is odd.  Lucky Danish friends to have a month off at Christmas I suppose.  I'm agreeing with you all about the stylist. I think it is a good idea, especially if the royal is working instead of shopping. I don't like that they are probably taxpayer-paid positions, but it could be argued it is a business expense.

I don't think Letizia has a stylist, or it is an unpaid position. The SRF staff is minimal. iirc she only got a dedicated personal assistant / executive assistant last year. 

Mary (or Mary and her stylist) copy extensively.

re. The Dutch. Only the Dutch press is controlled by the Media Code. If the Argentine media found Maxima at the mall every day with the kids in Argentina, I presume they would/could publish it freely.


I'm also looking forward to the Danish New Year events. Those always have lots of interesting fashion. I hope Queen Margrethe does not wear her neon green dress again this year.

Oh, yes, I keep forgetting about that life coach, My2Pence.  Who is that for?  Fred?  Mary?  Both of them as a couple?  It is indeed odd that the crown prince couple would need a life coach as their lives are pretty well mapped out for them already.

Agreed. She seems to like the work she does with children and the anti-bullying program, her UN work for women's health and overall supporting her husband and her new family and country (Danish fashion, Danish art & design).

We will never know how she felt about Frederik, she may have been attracted to him as a prince, but at least she is making it work in a way that she doesn't just sit in her palace and whine about not having enough privacy. She goes out there. And from what I understand she has helped Frederik with overcoming some of his shy-ness. She will always be the extravert person in the relationship. That is her nature and Frederik's nature.

BTW the DM article states that Kate is seen as a 'twin' of Mary but when looking at the pictures, I notice that Mary's skirts are always a bit longer (not so much above the knee but knee-heigth), not to mention that Mary's clothes fit better and have a higher quality.
Hardly twins in my book.

^Not sure on your last statement. I think that because of his future position, as Head of State, he has more work outside the public eye in order to prepare himself. Talking to members of government and the parliament, local politicians etc. And these meetings (and the meetings of the Council of State that he also attends) are not as 'sexy' for the press so they don't write about these meetings very often.

Some time ago I was in Denmark and during a dinner I sat next to a director of one of the largest dairy companies in Denmark and I recognized the name because that firm had just landed a big contract with a Gulf State. I congratulated him and he told me how the contract had come about and it all started with a big trade-mission. The Crown Prince headed that mission and prior to going on the mission, he had visited the factory and spoken to not just the management, but also with the people from R&D. These visits were never covered by the press.
And since these trade missions often involve dozens of companies, I am sure that the Crown Prince also visited some of the other participants. Perhaps not all, just the big ones, or the small ones, or the start-ups etc.

So I am careful saying that Mary is working harder than Frederik. Because I think that a lot of work Frederik does, is just not visible because these meetings are behind closed doors and are just not as 'sexy' at the visits of Mary (you can only write so much about a grey suit and a blue tie).

Post by: Miss Hathaway on February 11, 2016, 04:23:50 pm
^ It is good to hear that he is working behind the scenes.  For a long while he has appeared depressed and detached, and Mary has been the one in the public eye.   But in the last year Frederick has seemed much better and happier.  No doubt there are many changes going on behind the scenes as Denmark prepares for a new monarch just as GB is.

I have my doubts that Fred is ready to reign, and also that Marge is the type to want to give up control.  But she is not in good health and seems to often be in pain, so she might abdicate or make Fred regent.   I'm still trying to figure out what happened with Henri.  I saw a photo of him in shorts on a bicycle in Egypt where he seems to be living right now.  Are he and Marge divorced?  What happened?

I think Fred could be made co-Regent with Marge and end up doing stuff that Henrik used to do.

As for RoyalDish, their hatred of her is illogical; they used to be Mette-Marit and Kate sugars.

^They are Sophie, Camilla and Chelsy sugars, only positive posts allowed.   While I could see some truth about Mary's shortcomings, in the end we still have a woman who dresses well, is groomed well, seems to enjoy her duties and willingly carries them out.   She may love the attention, but you would have to in this position.  She might not be mother of the year, but she still seems to care for her children.  Marge certainly wasn't mother of the year, either. Frederick seems to have shortcomings himself.  Hopefully, an increased work load will help both Mary and Frederick and they will work together.

Her personality would be a great improvement over the personality of Prince William's wife . . .

I like how Mary is standing up for women who make their own way in life. I mean, I'm sick of the backlash against feminism. Just because a bunch of spoiled brats didn't have their mothers making them the center of the universe, they lash out at women who earn their own way in life.

It seems Crown Prince Frederik had a father-daughter date with his eldest daughter Isabella: last night the two attended the concert by Adele in Copenhagen.

Twitter-account Royal Speaking has a picture of the two just before they entered the concert-location.

Copy Kate! No, it's not the Duchess out for a spin in Kensington Palace - this equally laid-back royal beauty is Crown Princess Mary of Denmark taking her five-year-old twins out in Copenhagen

chestnut hair, you could be forgiven for thinking this cyclist was the Duchess of Cambridge taking George and Charlotte for a spin.
But a closer look reveals the Kate look-a-like is actually a different royal – Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary out on a tricycle ride with her five-year-old twins Vincent and Josephine. 
The 44-year-old royal, who is mum to Christian, ten, Isabella, eight, and the five-year-old twins, looked like she was enjoying the early spring sunshine as she cycled near Amalienborg Palace in the Danish capital, dressed in skinny jeans and a Breton stripe sweatshirt - an outfit uncannily similar to one worn by Kate in 2013.

It is a disgrace for Crown Princess Mary to be called 'copy Kate'. If anyone is copying anyone, it is Kate and definitely not the other way around.

Mary became a royal in 2004 when Kate was stalking William as if there were no tomorrow and it would take 7 more years for her to become his wife.
In the meantime, Mary had four children, managed a rather fully agenda with causes like anti-bullying, healthy eating and the fight for female equality and better health options for women etc. Being a UN ambassador.

Mary also was quite active in the renovation of one of the four houses that form Amalienborg where she and her husband and children now live. A house that is a showcase for modern Danish design with modern murals, furniture and work of art. Like the style or not, she understands she needs to push Danish products and designs.
And she always is enjoying herself on her official visits. She has a true connection with the people she meets unlike Kate who just goes with the flow and looks like she is constantly thinking 'GET ME OUT OF HERE'.

And then there is the influence of Mary on Frederik, an influence that is a lot more positive than Kate's influence on Willy. Frederik has always been shy and wasn't the best public speaker, but he is improving. He has become more his own person and is less comfortable in his public role.
William on the other hand has crashed as a royal since marrying Kate.

Crown Princess Mary joined the Danish Home Guard for a weekend of training (which is mandatory for the members). As a result she missed the belated birthday-party of her sister-in-law Marie.

Considering Kate not even being able to spend more than 1-2 hours with the scouts, I doubt she would be doing this. Lucky for her, the British royals are less hands-on with their regiments.

You know, I sincerely think Mary should be given a lot more credit. A Crown Princess participating in the training exercises with her regiment is something that feminists should hold up as an example to be emulated.

^ I have to agree KF. Mary has always made it a point to champion causes and carryout her engagements with enthusiasm and a smile on her face. I know many people have said or will say its only so  she can   wear  her designer clothes but I don't care. She brings attention to causes  that otherwise would be forgotten. Plus it not her fault or any other royal lady's fault that the press goes on & on  about who they are wearing then only  writes  a paragraph about the cause ..

I dislike how wanting to learn to carry yourself better or wear nice things is somehow some sin, as if being as uncouth as the Duchess of Cambridge is noble and 'real' and 'down to earth.' So what if she took a starmaker's course or took a risk by moving to Denmark.

"When sneak peek images from Crown Princess Mary's exclusive photoshoot with Vogue Australia were unveiled, fashion and royal watchers alike swooned over the princess swanning through the grounds of her palace in a jaw-dropping gown by homegrown designer Alex Perry.

But inside the magazine, which went on sale today, July 11, it is the Crown Princess' charitable work that takes centre stage, before the fashion.

In conversation with Vogue editor Edwina McCann, the 44-year-old royal explains why she chose the focuses of her Mary Foundation - domestic violence, bullying and loneliness.

'One thing I have always found difficult from as early as I can remember is seeing people who appear to be alone,' the Crown Princess said. 'It has always affected me deeply and I can't explain why. To see people standing on the outside looking in, who can't understand why they aren't part of a community or group.' "

It is hard to tell who was more delighted by their meeting Crown Princess Mary or the little girl presenting her with the flowers.
The Danish royal could not contain her delight as her young fan handed her the lush posy as she arrived at the Chamber of Commerce in Washington.
The young girl named Mia Heltberg, 7,  looked equally thrilled to be face to face with the royal and was pictured beaming back at her.

I like Mary. I have no idea why she supposedly shouldn't be allowed to move on from her roots and really, just because she wasn't a top level executive or some silliness doesn't mean that she hasn't been a good wife. She is someone who has managed to avoid major drama in her marriage and frankly I don't get why the other forum bashes her so much. She's one of few who hasn't had rumors of an affair and hasn't tried to go too global. She lives respectably in Denmark and enjoys her role and follows the rules and it's refreshing how the Danes have avoided major messes.
