Excuse me for gatecrashing on the discussion ! Having been in Vienna a forthnight ago - for the first week of October -- I can definetely say that their outfits are far too summery for Vienna in this time of the year! That said we did have some pleasant days with day temp. between 15-20C, but the air was still cool and autumn-like!

I am quit certain that the pictures from both Se&hør and Svensk Dam Tidningen are from Copenhagen. The street in the first photo is definatly danish, the pavement looks like pavements in DK and there is a parking meter exactly like the ones in Copenhagen. In the second photo the brickwall behind Alexandra is definatly a Danish brickwall.

Vienna and Copenhagen are so different that it simply isn't possible to find a street, a pavement or a brickwall like the ones on the photoes in Vienna.

I know so because I live in Copenhagen and has visited Vienna several times.

These two article put an end to Se og Hors article of the 18th, that Alexandra has let down her parents by not seeing them for six months and therefore not letting her grandchildren speak to them (have Se og Hor not heard of the telephone):
http://www.seoghoer.dk/Nyheder/Royalt/Alex%20svigter%20far.aspx

I believe the photo from Se og Hor is them taking the children to school - I just seem to remember that white jacket from several photos of her taking the children to school with Martin and if you look at these photos, it seems to be the same place:

By the way, is this article just about Alexandra getting a parking ticket?

SE og HØR - Alex og Martin: Parkerer ulovligt
She went to her favourite restaurant and parked her car where it was not allowed. But they don't say whether she actually got to pay the fine. It would have cost her DKK 510.

Thanks Hedvig - I have to say I'm impressed! Judging by your location, you're Latvian, yet you speak Danish and English!

Thank you, Lilla and Hedvig! I tried to figure it out, but I have never had the opportunity to visit either Vienna or Copenhagen, so it was difficult to tell from the photos.

It is and the tone is rater condemnatory.

My experience is that it is impossible to live in Copenhagen, having a car....and not getting parking tickets. Paying 510 DKK once in a while is simply an underlying condition of living here, whether one is a former princess or not. So far I have payed my share..............

Anyway if Alexandra got a parking ticket she would have to pay. After her divorce from Joachim, she is no longer above Danish law.

erm..Am I the only one thinking that Alexandra could have been
visiting her parents in Vienna earlier, without the press finding out??

Does anyone know whether she is being surveilled 24/7 by the
gutter press??
Lilla?

Well, she could have.

Anyway, if she didn't - there can be thousand of reasons why not. It might be because her parents were to busy.........

I don't know. But I really don't think she is. If she was, I would have seen paparazzias outside her home. Untill about ½ year ago I used to bike by on my way to work and from work..........I never saw anybody.

(Now I am working at another address).

Wow! They actually wrote a condemnatory article on a parking ticket??!! And I suppose there is absolutely nobody at this magazine that has ever gotten a parking ticket. There must be a news drought in Denmark .

And it's not even an article about how she got a parking ticket, just one about how she might have got a parking ticket!

On a more psoitive note, BT's done a nice interview with the Countess:
Here's the (rubbish) English free translation:

And here's the Danish one:
