I have stated more than once in these forums that I am not a great fan of Mari Chantal, and although the CP is happy and they have a nice family, I would prefer someone else to be the Crown Princess.
However, I have to admit that she looks pretier with time. I don't know whether it's maternity, but she looks more attractive and classy to me as years pass by.
Maybe her interacting with European royalties gave her american temper a fine touch of class

HRH the Crown Princess Pavlos is quite aloof, I feel. Coming from a society background, a father worth a small country & marrying an exiled Crown Prince..."MC" just doesn't project much warmth from where I'm standing.

I'm not staying its her fault, she know's no different I guess.

Iannis- are you inferring that Americans do not have as much class as Europeans?? I am sort of teasing you-although I am proudly an American I see that the 'classiness' of society as a whole (and I do not equate money with class as they often do not follow the other) deteriorating at lightning speed, especially here in America.

On the topic of MC I have never met her, although I hope to some day, but until you know someone you truly cannot judge them on their 'aloofness' or warmth. I myself have had many people tell me that they thought I was 'cold' or 'icy' when really I am just simply introverted, I do not gush over people, I would rather spend time by myself or with close people rather than 'smoozing'. I would rather listen in a conversation than try to be the center of it. Maybe MC is the same way.

Just because she married a Crown Prince why do we expect her to be anything other than a simple wife and mother who enjoys her family and enjoys the fortune that her father built?? What do her sister's do but go about their daily lives quietly?

Just my thoughts

Well, to be honest, yes, that was what I was inferring, but it is only my personal opinion, I do not imply that the whole world thiks like me. Maybe the type of class is different in the States and Europe, and what's more, I was not referring to everyday Europeans, but royals.
I see what you mean and I have to admit that any girl Pavlos married would have been looked upon with some suspicion, no matter whether she was Muller's daughter or not.
For the time being, I'm happy to see her looking better than in the past -I hope it's not only me- and know that she raises her falimy, runs her own business successfully and does not give a bad name to the family, something someone would be afraid of an American millionaire's daughter
I have nothing against Americans, I apologize if I sound racistic, I'm not, I just think it's common sense.

Possible, but I doubt it.

Marie Chantal is a Lady of society..I doubt very strongly that she is introverted & no doubt is somewhat used to being centre of attention...its what socialites are and its what they do...they wine & dine, they gossip, they rub shoulders with industry's most famous faces etc...Its about being seen, what they wear & how much they didn't have to pay for it (if at all) because they are on "sociable" terms with Valentino or whoever it may be..

I have a good knowledge of how socialites work, my grandmother is one!

The image I recieve from the Crown Princess is one of aloofness & detatchment...it is, however, at face value.

I agree with you, MII, there's something (not so good) about her, I don't trust her, my gut tells me that

She has, according to Greeks who have met her, learned Greek enough to follow conversations. She's, according to those Greeks, too insecure about her abilities to speak it in front of native Greek-speakers, but she can understand what is said to her.

I know that Greek is not the easiest language in the world, and even Queen Anne Marie is not fluent at it herself, but i hope MC gives it an honest try; I am afraid the future CP, princes and princess won't speak it at all:(

The kids are being sent to the Hellenic College of London, which teaches Greek from Nursery level (age 4) through them leaving the school, and follows both the English and Greek national curriculums. I think they'll learn the language enough through school and their father, but I don't know they'll ever qualify as fluent.

It is sad not to be forgiven for learning a language that you would rarely speak, because the people of the country do not want you as their rulers. These people live in English speaking countries and speak English. Anne-Marie speaks Danish, as well, as she is a Danish Princess. Marie Chantal is not like Mary of Denmark or Maxima or Holland who must speak their adopted countries languages, as they will rule one day. Her chances of being anything in Greece are slim to none, therefore, why should anyone care whether she speaks Greek or not. Unlike the German princes who live in Germany, they do not live in Greece. They are rarely in Greece. It is all a charade.

She's been seen since the christening and looked slimmer in those pics than she did at the christening.

A lot of people here think that Marie Chantal should be let alone and be lauded as a good mother. But she wants more plaudits than just 'a good mother.' She wants to be seen as a good Crown Princess, a good businesswoman, a good clothing designer. She should do more with herself to earn those plaudits.

She has proven herself as a good businesswoman and a good designer. Her business is profitable, and that's more than many first-time entrepreneurs can state.

From what i have read so far it seems to me that not matter what MC does or doesn't do it will never be good enough especially to those who do not like her......
