Another article on their visit to Ocean Park, this time about how little Felix loves taking photos and is a 'sharp' photographer. Apparently, he took photos of his mother and Martin together from several different angles.

Whislt she doesn't look 14 years older, she does look older, or more mature, as he still has a boyish look, and she is more mature.

Alexandra klar til erhvervslivet - Navne
Countess Alexandra has joined VL Group 42, which from what I see is an organisation for business networking. She says "To enter a VL group is for me a great way to say with firm voice that I am very interested in business. But some of the most important by VL-groups is that one network. It was one of my criteria for entering - to have a large network. Not only with the group members but also with other groups on the days when all the groups meet, and where there are hundreds of people."

Alexandra is there in her job as a director of Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and the article says that this shows how she's becoming more involved in her business life.

Good for her! I am glad to see that she is becoming more involved with business. Her life has changed, and she is no longer in the princess role. I wish her success in her networking and business endeavors. I wonder if she will keep all of her patronages?

I think she will; although she has fourteen (I think) they don't take up as much of her time as they used to, so I'm sure she'll be able to do both her roles without any major changes. Alexandra said in her first interview with Costume magazine that "I’d rather be busy than having nothing to do. I get more energy the more work I do."

The VL Group 42 is the most prestigious business network in Denmark. The network has got 40 members all in all and meets 10 times a year. To become a member an invitation from a member is crucial and only the elite business people will be asked to join.

IMO she must have preformed very well as patron of Unicef and as a board member in the Swiss international pharmaceutical concern Ferring elsehow she wouldn't have been invited to the VL Group 42. Well done Alex!

Thanks for the info Lilla - and congratulations to Alexandra! I have to admit I didn't realise how well she's doing - the only mention of her business career I've ever come across has been agendas with her giving talks at conferences.

I think she has spend her time consolidating her position as a businesswoman, which doesn't attract attention in the tittle-tattle medias that usually report about the royals. I don't think her future activities in business will attract much attention either - partly because it isn't of interest for that kind of media and partly because her business-activities mainly goes on behind closed doors. In that perspective it is quit interesting and logical, that the article is brought in Berlingste Tidende - which is a serious and major Danish newspaper with focus on business.

Billed-Bladet - Alexandra hjælper syge veninder
Alexandra, who is on the board of the Race Against Breast Cancer Association, has attended the Research Day about this topic. She said that she is 'glad to participate in this work as it is important that something is done in this area. Too many women are affected by breast cancer."

She said that soem of her friends have breast cancer, and that she thinks that it is "important to be there for them and to help them out, by listening, visiting them, collecting their children. In their situation it's nice for them to know that they aren't alone. Physically you can see how awful it is, they lose their hair, vomit and are miserable."

Does Alexandra plan to participate in any of the Race for the Cure events? I believe that they typically happen in May or June throughout the world.

Billed-Bladet has an article that discusses Countess Alexandra's relationship with Joachim, Marie and the new baby.

Billed-Bladet - Alexandra vild med Joachim og Maries baby

She says that she has met the new prince, and that he is beautiful. She visited Joachim and Marie while they were still at Amalienborg. It does not say whether she will attend the christening or not.
