According to Her og Nu, Alexandra has sais that her friend's breast cancer opened her eyes to the simple things in life, and she now appreciates life much more.

Also, I've also just come across another video of her visit to the Parkinson's flat, here:

I've just come across this article from today, but I can't really make sense of it - could anybody help me? Thanks!
Chr. Hansen A/S modtager årets Logistikpris

Also, there's a video here, along with photos, of the Countess opening the breast-cancer clinic: stiften.dk - Århus: VIDEO: Alexandra støtter også brysterne - stiften.dk - Artikler og nyheder fra Århus og Østjylland, Favrskov, Odder, Skanderborg, Norddjurs og Syddjurs. Opdateret hele dagen.

She said that she was "quite glad that I am able to participate in highlighting breast cancer, which is a serious disease, 41.000 women are hit by in Denmark, and that puts 4000 new cases each year" and that women should definitely get themselves screened for it, saying that "Screening can help many. I am glad to be able to help to highlight it here."

Countess Alexandra presented the Logistics prize 2008. But the article itself discusses only logistics, not Alexandra.

What is the Logistics prize? Was Alexandra there on behalf of a patronage?

I know what logistics means in the broadest sense, but I haven't got the foggiest about the finer points of the Logistics award! . However I found something on the company website:

Chr. Hansen: Chr. Hansen wins prestigious logistics award

No, I don't think so! None of her patronages are covering this particular resort.

Very interesting! I didn't know that they had a high-profile awards event for this industry. Thank you, Viv, for the links.

So does anybody know if this award is something she's been giving out every year, or something she's only started to participate in this year?

Apparently the staff at the D'Angleterre Hotel are getting irritated with the Countess' 'contempt' for parking rules, as she parks illegally outside the hotel for hours upon end:
Metroxpress - Alexandra blæser på færdselsloven

I was under the impression that she'd bought a holiday home in Turkey, but apparently it was lent to them by Remee, the X-factor judge.

Is this the same magazine that reported the parking ticket? Are they sponsored by the department of motor vehicles?

I beleieve the title translates as "Alexandra: Worried for the small princes", but I'm not sure why she's worried.

Alexandra has apparently done a television interview with Bo Reimer, which will air on November 27 at 20:00, on DR1. In the interview, the Countess discusses about her marriage to Prince Joachim, their divorce, the two boys, and her new life with Martin.

Desperate Countess at prime time. Me in her position would have refused this...definitely.
But it means entertainment for us...and isn´t it that, what it is all about...

If she is worried about her children, she should maybe not give interviews and get them into the limelight.
If they would prefer it, Nicolai and Felix could probably lead a perfectly protected nearly anonymous life as adults.
After all they will have 2-3 cousins ahead in line to the throne and I could imagine Marie´s baby would get a little bit more attention, since he/she will grow up at the prince...

It isn't my impression that she expresses more nor less worrying then other parents would express if they were asked the same kind of stupid questions by Billedbladet as she was........

But you are right about this being entertainment..............and that is all it is about...
