I'm also confused. Is Pia divorced also? Does anyone know why? I thought she had a stable marriage. How long has Alex been divorced?
Now, here is my two cents:
The reason I don't like MC is because she seems very fake, shallow and insecure to me. It is not that she has a wealthy father. I don't like her because she likes to show off the things she has that most of us don't have, and it hits a wrong nerve with us. I really like Mathilde, Alexandra and even Maxima. They all have aristocratic and wealthy families, but they don't do magazine spreads to show us how they throw tea parties or that they have indoor pools. Mathilde seems very secure with herself and who she is and she doesn't need to be in magazines to feel good about her self. MC seems to crave attention and she is really not secure or centered yet. If you read all the magazine articles about MC, there is really no substance. It is usually about her china set, expensive linen, and who her stylist is. That is very shallow to me.
Regarding the language issue, she should tried harder and learned Greek. From everything that I have learned about the Royal societies, it is a prestigious thing to know multiple languages. (Most royalty speak 3,4 5 languages). She could have learned Greek and added it to her porfolio, but we have all noted that education is not a priority for her.
I think she should use her money and create scholarships for Greek students, donate computers to Greek schools, build hospitals in rural areas, ect, ect....
That is when she will earn my respect.
I got a lot off my chest. Thanks for reading.
