Well, given the way that they have managed their divorce and relationship since the divorce, it would not surprise me too terribly much.

We've all become so accustomed to divorce being acrimonious and mean, that it is hard to imagine a peaceful and friendly separation. If they are able to continue as they have begun, there is no reason why she should not share her "friends" joy in their new little one, who is afterall, a brother of her own sons.

Contrary to what Alexandra herself has said, Her og Nu claim that she is very bitter and has difficulty seeing Princess Marie as a new mother because she herself has not had a new baby with Martin.

And someone's forgotten that she's not a Princess anymore
Alexandra: Ikke glemt på Schackenborg - Royalt - SE og HØR
Charlottle Solberg sent a letter of congratulations and a drawing into Princess Marie and Prince Joachim on account of the new baby prince and got a reply from Soeren Frederiksen, the land agent, to say

"Their Royal Highnesses Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra have asked me to thank you for your best regards and good wishes for the Prince family and the new-born Prince. A great thanks for Matilde for her best regards and beautiful drawing."

Pics 6.6.2009

Countess Alexandra attended the charity event "Kids For Kids" ,
Copenhagen, Denmark, June 6, 2009.
Her two children Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix and her husband
Martin Joergesen were also attending the event. Prince Nikolai
took a ride on the mechanical rodeo bull and the bull won in the
end as Prince Nikolai fell off of it.

Poor Nikolai! It looks like it was a really fun event. There is a blonde woman standing behind the Countess in one of the photos. Did she attend the event with the Alexandra?

I've just seen in this article about the Kids for Kids event that Martin Joergensen has joined the board of the Kids for Kids fund (If "Martin Jørgensen er netop kommet med i bestyrelsen for Kids for Kids-fonden" was translated correctly). It's good that he's getting involved in charity too, as well as just accompanying Alexandra as her husband.

Countess Alexandra was issued an invitation to appear on the show "Strictly Come Dancing", but turned it down.

Billed-Bladet - "Vild med dans” uden grevinde Alexandra

Apparently, Crown Princess Mary's father was also invited, but declined. Alexandra received her first invitation to participate two years ago, and has received several invitations since. She has continued to decline.

Well done by both of them. There is no need for nither to become comic figures in a Friday evening entertainment-show which features want-to- be celebrities.

I agree with you Lilla, even though I have never seen the show. There is just something low-brow about most reality shows, and I can't imagine why a royal would want to do something like this. It would seem like a cry for publicity (IMO).

I agree, and to be honest I don't think she even wants a lot of publicity these days; as we saw with the Vl-Group 24 or 42 or whatever it's called, she seems to be more focussed on her business career now.

Countess Alexandra's public profile - Present and in the future?

Some questions for the Danish members here. How is Countess Alexandra's public profile in Denmark today compared to her public profile when she was a princess? Has her popularity or the attention paid to her by the media been affected much by the arrival of Crown Princess Mary and now Princess Marie? As time goes by and the media focuses more on Crown Princess Mary and Princess Marie and their families, how do you think Countess Alexandra's public profile will be affected or do you think it will remain the same? Does anyone think that she will ever become a truly private person in the future...especially...when Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary become King and Queen of Denmark (God Willing!) and Alexandra's sons move from being the eldest grandchildren of Queen Margrethe to the nephews of King Frederik X?
Thanks for the responses!!

Of course when Frederik and Mary become King and Queen, Alexandra's public profile will somehow lessen especially Christian will be introduced as the new heir. But I somehow believe that the Countess will always be popular in Denmark. She was engaged in various establishments and duties. She helped promote Denmark in every way she know of. Her title of being Countess was a proof that Queen Margrethe acknowledged Alexandra's accomplishments. I have always like her. She's smart, elegant and a very loving mother.

Madeleine Victoria, I concur. And as she still is engaged in various establishments and duties she will continue to be a popular person for the media to write about - and for the Danes to read about.

I do think though, that when the royal children, including her own two boys, grow up - the spotlight will change to them and it will be possible for her to have a more private life then the one she has today.

Regarding media attention - a change has happend since she was a Princess. Serious Danish newspapers with focus on business is writing about her now and again. This is due to her boardmembership of a Swiss pharmaceutical compagny. Though most of her business-activities mainly goes on behind closed doors some activeties are public and this attracts the interests of those newspapers. Not because she is a former Princess or a Countess but because she is a skilled businesswoman. At the same time the Princess/Countess stories are handled by the tittle-tattel magazines with their focus on glamour, gossip and so on.
