Alexandra was invited to the christening of Christian as she was still a Princess of Denmark and was therefore part of the official royal family still. Naturally she would have been at the christening of a direct heir to the throne.

She is not a member of the royal family anymore, and this was not a christening that was a state occasion. Therefore she was not invited.

If Alexandra had been close to Frederik or Mary, I think she might have been invited to the christening. I actually thought she was close to Frederik since he seemed so close to her two boys when they were very young, but I guess not.

Its hard to tell from where we sit who is close to whom.

I agree, and it's hard to tell who was close to whom at one time but is no longer. I had the sense back then that Frederick and Alexandra had a pretty warm relationship when Alexandra was the only princess. But, of course, the dynamic changed where Mary came on the scene. And changed doubly when Alexandra and Joachim's relationship failed.

If I remember it correctly, Frederik was also at the dinner party where Alexandra and Joachim first met each other.

He was? I thought Joachim met Alexandra when he was in Hong Kong - working for Mærsk I think; not sure whether Frederik has been to HK at all.

No CP Frederik was not at the dinner when Alexandra and Joachim first met each other in HongKong because he was her in Denmark.

There's a thread about Mary & Alexandra, but she doesn't seem to be unfriendly - I saw a video of them chatting away at a fashion show, but I doubt they see much of eachother now. I have no idea about the nephews, but I would think that she is. However, you'll find the answers in this thread - http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...a+relationship

I read somewhere that CP Frederik visited Hong Kong when Joachim was there. So he was also at the dinner party.
I will try to find the source.

ALEXANDRA

Please scroll down to Chapter 5.
Frederik went to Hongkong to visit his brother. A businessman called Lowell Chang, a friend of Prince Henrik, invited both Joachim and Frederik to his dinner party.
Alexandra was among other guests of Lowell Chang.

From this description we don´t know exactly if Frederik was also there, but it´s very possible because he was invited. And it seemed that Frederik´s visit to Hongkong was the reason why Lowell Chang gave this dinner party for both princes.

Thanks Iceflower - she's finally done something different with her hair.
Magnik, she has actually denied that she is pregnant (see the thread), so hopefully those rumours won't start again.

It's not weird at all - I had trouble with that at first. If you listen to this video, you can ehar his name:

I like her skirt very much. Good taste!
I also like to see her in bright colours.

It seems that she has gained some weight after marrying Martin. (I am just expressing my observation of the pictures, but not implying that she may be pregnant.)
