Gotta agree here, that suit wasn't the best. It's weird with Alexandra; sometimes she looks terrific and her choice of clothing is stylish and elegant and forward and modern all at once. Her dress sense has been becoming a bit 'looser' since she and Joachim split, and overall it's suited her.

However oftentimes she also looks totally old fashioned, and stiff, like this suit.

And did you notice the body language between the ex spouses? They couldn't be standing further apart if they tried! Speaks volumes I think. I also think future royal spouses probably will refrain from having dual charity funds - there's a too big a chance these couples divorce, and then you get akward situations like this. Because they looked civilized, but awkward..

Princess Olga, I also noticed this distance between the two as well. However, the distance between them in the awarding ceremony last year wasn´t so "obvious" like that of this year. I think it´s because Joachim is engaged now and being a loyal man, he unconciously wanted to keep distance from his ex-wife.

I think they will change the name of this fund sooner or later.

And I think that there are some photos from the rainforest here that haven't been posted.
For me that suit is ok, but not my favourite style. I don´t know why Alexandra started to wear brown, black, gray, or white very often after her divorce. I like to see her wearing more bright colours. As I remember, she used to wear bright pink very often. It seems to be her favourite colour. She suits blue very well, too. The outfit she wore to visit the sick children and read stories for them this year was terrible. That kind of black and yellowish brown is absolute not my taste! Besides, I like to see her put down her hair, but not put them up soooooo tightly like she did in her recent public events.

I can't translate the article, but I can tell you that it is the Song of the yesar from the DR Girls choir (from the matching dates from the article and the Countess' website)

She looks great - I love that outfit, apart from her shoes - but maybe I'm overly fussy, beacuse I never like her shoes!

I just saw an on-line copy of Billed Bladet. There is an article on the Countess' parents -- Richard and Christa Manley. I can't read Danish, but I think it says that they are moving to Austria. Can anyone confirm this?

Thank you.

Yes, they'll be staying with friends/family there until they find a place of their own. They commented that the cost of living in Denmark, ie. finding a new place for themselves, when they were retired, was too high.

I agree - she looks great, I love that outfit.

I've just found more about the UNICEF opening.
http://www.princessalexandradk.info/...%20by%2008.jpg
Here's a summary transcript of what she said to the children in English:
Children: How long ago did you come to Denmark?
Alexandra: About 12 to 13 years ago.
Children: Did you have any subjects in school that you didn't like:
Alexandra: I didn't have any, but I did have some that I liked more than others, like Maths and English.
She than asked them:
Why do you have to go to school and learn things?
They said:
"So that you can get a good job and earn money," to which she replied "That's right and it is the same for the children in Bolivia. They need a chance.

I have to say that the more I see the outfit, the more I like it, such as here

Strange that the cost of living in Denmark was too high. They have been living in the Gatehouse of Schackenborg free thanks to their X-soninlaw Prince Joachim all these years. How many X-son in laws would do that!

Fantastic Mitchell, thank you very much.

The Countess looks amazing, and I am always impressed with her Danish. Impeccable.

However, what in the world did Anja, Mary's stylist, do to her hair? Awful, awful, awful. It looks like a frizzy helmet... girlfriend needs to put some good products on her 'do to tame that hair.

Thanks so much Mitchell, as GlitteringTiaras said, her Danish is excellent and her look was great.
Also, here's a couple more photos:

Agree. That was very impressive that Joachim was so generous to his former father- and mother-in-law. From this fact, I suppose that the relationship of Joachim and Alexandra wasn´t that bad like other divorcing couples. It seemed to be an extraordinary smooth divorce process.

Thank you very very much, alex001!
Your tiredless effort gives others a chance to keep seeing Alexandra and her recent activities! You did a great job! Thank a lot!

You're welcome!

For those of us who don't speak Danish that well, some of her comments from the fashion show (the only one I could find translated):

"You can express yourself personally through fashion. My own style is relaxing and myself. I don't keep up with the latest fashions."

I like that one! It's nice to know that although they are attending a grand event, they are normal people at heart!
