I don't know, the interview's only just come out today and I haven't actually seen it. Sorry!

However, from the article posted by QUEENECE29 (thanks) I can tell you that she does talk about her relationship with Marie and Joachim:
"We have never experienced jealousy towards each other. I have always wished him the best and he has always wanted the best. So after we decided not to be together, I am happy that he has found someone who he would like to share life with. And conversely, I can see that he is also happy on my behalf."

"We talk a lot about Joachim and Marie, they are in our lives and of course, is a part of children's lives - there are among other things holidays together. But with the children staying with us everyday, it is obviously something else"

I would say, in a way, that Alexandra represents some aspect which involves the royal family and the government.
She is still listed under the Royal House of Denmark official links with her coronet and monogram.
I have always thought that Alexandra looks immpecable. Her appearance at this event was so out of character for her.
She may have known that Mary would be there or not - but in any case, she should have known that the Press would be there.
Really? She is still listed under the DRF official links?
Maybe you visited an old page?
I just checked the website, definitely she is not on the member list of the royal family.

You can see the info and cover (with what I think is a horrible photo of her) here:
Nyt nummer af Costume « Costume.dk

If you're interested, the first interview Costume did with her, back when she was a Princess, is here:
New Page 1
Well, I personally think she looks much better this time!
She looks so elegant and beautiful in that turkis dress!

She does look lovely...but she is so pale. The whole look, (hair and makeup) put me in mind of a Geisha. Not that she looks exactly like one, (and they are lovely) but that pale, perfectly symmetrical and perfectly put together look, and there is just a hint of the actual Geisha look to me. Odd, but that is what came to mind when I first looked at the picture. I like the picture from the first article better. It's more natural and more vulnerable. It's like you can see directly into her soul or something. Or maybe rather less guarded?

It is winter time, so she would not have any color. She does get a nice tan when she visits a sunny destination - usually in the summer.
Alexandra seems like a very calm, measured person - very sure of herself.

There is nothing horrible about the photo, I think Countess Alexandra looks wonderful, maybe a little pale but still beautiful.

JV.dk - Kultur - Glitter - Alexandra klar til flere børn
JV has a little more from the interview as well as what has already been written here; just that Alexandra hates shopping in supermarkets, because she gets recognised and noted, which is what she likes about being abroad as she can relax a little more.
However, when she is recognised, people just greet her politely and she has never had an uncomfortable situation due to it.

Her og Nu has an article about Mary and Alexandra's 'baby fight'; that they both want to have one more baby this year. However, I'm not inclined to believe this as Alexandra's said several times that "children come when they come" and has been very ono-committal about having another baby.

They are really hurting for news on the DRF, aren't they? IMO, Alexandra has always seemed very low-key about having babies. She doesn't seem like she's overly-worried about having more children. Mary also doesn't seem like she is just dying to be pregnant this very minute. I'm sure that they would both welcome more babies, but this story seems exaggerated.

She has already 2 kids and her age is not appropriate for another pregnancy.She is 45,she is full-fledged and ΙΜΟ she wouldn't risk her health.

TV 2 Vip - Alexandra: Stadig vild med Martin
More information from Alexandra's interview with Costume magazine; that she is still "crazy" about Martin and says that ""He is the best step-father that the children could have. He has taken upon the task with great maturity. He has the children's full loyalty and love, they love him and he loves them."

Looking at the picture, how could you believe that she is 14 years of his senior?! Alexandra looks so young and lively.
The magazines should interview her how to look young forever, ask her
which cream she uses or if she has any special tips for the skin care!

Exactly!

Princess Alexandra was removed from the DRF website about the time she exchanged vows with Martin Jørgensen. I checked on the day !

You're right Heike, she doesn't look 14yrs older than him. BT have put together a gallery by the way of Alexandra and Martin:

The reason, in case anyone's wondering, why Alexandra isn't doing anything at the moment is that she is taking Nikolai and Felix to Hong Kong for a month to visit their cousins and their aunt, Nicola Baird and her three children, and so that she can catch up with friends who still live there. They're expected to return to Denmark for Easter.

Does Alexandra still have family in Hong Kong? I thought that her parents were now in Denmark, but I could be wrong. I do think that it is great that she is taking the boys to the see the area where she grew up.

As far as I know, her sister lives in Hong Kong and her parents are living in Vienna. They left Denmark when Joachim married Marie. Untill then they had been living at Shackenborg - in a house connected to the castle. I guess it must have been to wierd for them to continue living with their former son in law and his new wife.
