Wow, that's really good :flower: . How do you know it's prada? it looks like something I could buy from my local shopping mall :P . And Mary has worn Danish designers for almost ALL of the outfits we've seen so far, so I thought if it had to be by a designer, it would be a Danish one.

I only know two: the ruby one left by Ingrid for Frederik's wife, and the wedding tiara from Q Margrethe and P Henrik.

Am I the only one who thinks that Mary has taken to wearing jewels that are too big and too fusy and too much at these gala events? There's something a little ostentatatious about it for my taste.

And did the photographer really have to take a photo right down her dress? That was obnoxious.

I keep looking at photos of Mary because I want to like her--and I don't dislike her--but I keep getting disappointed. I find her dull and predictable. Is it just me?

No of course not! :flower:

But I'm sure there are also those that like her (like me). Nobody can please everyone. Even Maxima, who one would think would be loved by all, isn't because no-one can please every single person.

I personally thought Mary looked wonderful. And if you see the jewellery of other women (maxima/ Mathilde/ Alex QM), you'll see that what Mary wore isn't ostentatious, but quite normal. This is a tiara event after all, and not some suburban dinner party. And of course the jewellery she wore isn't solid gold, or diamonds... they look a but like costume jewellery, and even if they're not, I don't think they're the kind to cost a lot. Her jewellery actually reminds me of the kind Mathilde sometimes wears - nice and "fussy" (in that there's lots of strands going aruond and around the neck) but doesn't look waaay too expensive.

Mary looked wonderful, and today she's on the cover of the Sunday Morning Herald here in Sydney . And in the other newspaper, they had a series of pictures of Frederik catching the stricken bird (don't know if anyone saw those photos of Frederik bending down to the ground ... it looked like he was catching a frisbee!).

I wish Mary wouldn't wear shoes like that -- heel less/backless or whatever they're called. The only other princess I've seen wearing them has been Princess Caroline and well, that's no example to follow.
Actually Alexandra wore heeless shoes with straps going all around the ankles for the Fredensborg "informal" birthday shoot.

But even though Mary looked fab (IMO), I kind of agree that it would look more regal if she had worn enclosed shoes.

Those shoes are my only objection to Mary's style. Even one strap around the ankle cuts the bawdy image . Other than that she looks fine but I suspect she's still looking for her own unique style. All this jewelry she's been wearing reminds me of none other than Queen Mary of Great Britain. Why not, we like to see sparkling jewels, the more the better.

Mary's first day back at work - as a princess
June 13, 2004
The Sun-Herald

s
Princess of Denmark, the former Mary Donaldson.

With the fairytale wedding a beautiful memory and the royal honeymoon in Africa over, the former Mary Donaldson has officially started her new career - as a princess of Denmark.

Tanned, relaxed and wearing a body-hugging vintage dress, Mary and her husband, Crown Prince Frederik, received a rousing reception when they arrived at the Tivoli building for her father-in-law's birthday party.

The couple will board the royal yacht Dannebrog on Friday for an official visit to Greenland.

It won't be until next month that they finally settle into their Copenhagen home at Fredensborg Palace.

Just look at those pearly whites. She could be in a tooth whitening commercial.

And I like her simple black dress ..... such a contrast to every-one else.

Just think, within the year, simple colour will be all the 'rage' .... in Denmark. :)

After struggling with the online Danish-English dictionary, I still can't make sense out of this article (probably because half the words in the title aren't even in the online dictionary!&#33

Please, can any Danish speakers give us a short translation of this article from BT?

Mary blev forfulgt af fotografer
Af KARIN SCHMIDT

Det var nødvendigt for Mary at få sine egne bodyguards, inden hun overhovedet havde fået forlovelsesringen med de røde rubiner på fingeren og var blevet en officiel del af kronprins Frederiks liv.
I uhyggelig lighed med prinsesse Diana blev hun nemlig forfulgt så tæt af enkelte pressefotografer, at hun følte sig meget utryg, når hun sad i sin...

...bil med et øje i bakspejlet på de meget ihærdige forfølgere, der ikke lod sig stoppe af et rødt lyskryds.
Jagten gjorde, at hun både frygtede for sin egen sikkerhed og alle andres omkring hende. Derfor besluttede politiet, at der skulle være to sikkerhedsfolk omkring hende, hver gang hun bevægede sig ud i trafikken.

Bad om sikkerhedsfolk

I den nye biografi »Mary - kronprinsesse af Danmark« fortæller Marys læremester, hofchef Per Thornit, at politiet valgte at give Mary egne sikkerhedsfolk.

»Hvis hun kørte over for næsten gult, så kørte de over for rødt for ikke at slippe hende, og det var hun meget bekymret over. For som hun sagde: »Enten kører de ind i mig, eller også kører de nogen ned.«

Den situation måtte vi simpelthen håndtere. Det er jo ikke noget, vi beder om. Det er politiet, der vurderer, om det er relevant, og det syntes de, det var,« siger Per Thornit i bogen.

Der er ingen tvivl om, at Mary må have draget et lettelsens suk, da hun fik at vide, at hun i fremtiden ville blive ledsaget af to sikkerhedsfolk, når hun satte sig ud i sin bil. Prinsesse Dianas skæbne må have ligget i hendes bevidsthed, hver gang hun trådte ekstra hårdt på speederen for at være i fred.

Da beslutningen om de to sikkerhedsfolk blev taget, trådte Mary ind i et liv, som gør, at hun ikke længere kan gå som anonym på gaden. Det må have været en svær tanke at vænne sig til, men venner til Frederik og Mary understreger i bogen, at Frederik lige fra begyndelsen har været fantastisk til at forberede hende til den krævende rolle.

En australsk ven, Chris Meeham, fortæller om Kronprinsens pædagogiske evner.

»Han gjorde det stille og roligt. Skridt for skridt. Jeg tror, at det var det rigtige. At det var lettere for Mary, at hun ikke vidste alt det, hun ved nu.

Hun lærte at kende og elske Frederik som den mand og det menneske, han er. Ikke som kronprins Frederik. Og det er en styrke, deres forhold vil bevare, og en ligevægt, som alle forhold skal have,« siger Chris Meeham.

Hengav sig til forelskelsen

»Frederik planlagde det hele ganske godt. Han gik i gang med en langsom læreproces, og til at begynde med forstod Mary ikke omfanget af forelskelsen, at den ville forandre hendes liv så radikalt.

Jeg tror, Frederik gjorde det helt rigtige ved at hengive sig til forelskelsen og lade Mary gøre det samme, uden at hun vidste, hvad der ventede forude. Der gik faktisk lang tid, før hun virkelig forstod, hvad det indebærer at være medlem af den danske kongefamilie,« siger den australske ven.

I dag er Mary slet ikke i tvivl om, hvad hendes rolle indebærer, og hun har da også allerede vænnet sig til at være centrum for hele den danske presse.

»Hun er meget rolig i relation til medier og presse. Hun føler sig ikke belastet af det eller klemt af det. Hun har et meget rationelt forhold til det. Selvfølgelig har vi talt om det, for det bliver jo en del af hverdagen - det er jo ikke noget, der er der nu og så forsvinder igen. Man kan jo ikke bare sige: »Nu er det overstået«, for det er det jo ikke,« siger hofchef Per Thornit.

And here's an articlefrom BT which (I think) talks about Susan Moody Donaldson and her book (???). If someone who knows Danish can please give us the gist of the article, it would be so good of you :flower:

This article also says something about Susan, and near the bottom of the page, something about janteloven. Is there a problem with Mary's mum and janteloven??

Seeing Fred likes sailing and Mary is from a boat-mad Australia, and Fred's agenda is only for the month in question, I thought I would check up how they're booked for time on Kongeskibet Dannebrog in 2004.

After the Greenland trip, the engagements go as follows:

Mandag den 26. juli.
Kl. 10.00 Kronprinsparret på officielt besøg i Århus.

Tirsdag den 27. juli.
Kl. 10.00 Kronprinsparret på officielt besøg i Ålborg.

Onsdag den 28. juli.
Kl. 10.00 Kronprinsparret på officielt besøg i Odense.

Torsdag den 29. juli.
Kl. 10.00 Kronprinsparret på officielt besøg i Sønderborg.

Kids' words of wisdom for a future queen Search articles

20-5-2004

Author Grethe Dirckinck-Holmfeld toured the country, interviewing children of all ages about their views of the Royal Family

When Mary Becomes Queen - They'll Raise the Speed Limit,’ is a 160-page book of unfailingly astute observations about all things royal, from the kingdom's smallest subjects. Here are a few examples of Danish children's thoughts on Mary Donaldson:

‘When Mary becomes Queen, she'll have to get used to people yelling 'Hurrah!' very loudly, and smoke coming out of the cannons.’

‘If I had to give Mary some advice, I would tell her not to be too hard on Denmark.’

‘When Mary learns how to become Queen, she'll have to start by opening all of Queen Margrethe's mail.’

‘I think Mary should help the poor and paint pictures just like the Queen.’

‘I think Mary should wish all the poor people good luck collecting bottles.’

‘I think Mary should just take it easy at the beginning and keep an eye on Denmark.’

‘I think Mary should go around Denmark and ask all the children if they fight during recess.’

‘When Mary and Frederik get married, Mary will turn into a pregnant lady.’

‘Everyone that makes a lot of money gets invited to royal weddings. Including the guys that own (amusement parks) Tivoli and Bakken.’

‘Only rich people get invited to royal weddings. Because they don't know anyone else.’

‘If a queen marries a king in another country, they have to decide which country to move.’

‘On the day Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra got married, the Disney Show was cancelled. And it was even a Saturday.’

Some of the children interviewed expressed a little hint of republicanism.

‘I don't think it's right that we should pay money to the Queen, if we're not even invited to her parties.’

And a final, slightly envious observation from one young Dane:

‘When the Queen has her birthday and stands out on the balcony (of Amalienborg Palace), there are more than 1,000 people. If we have a birthday and stand out on our porch, there's maybe two.’


This is from the Copenhagen Post.

...when I stand on my balcony, I'm glad when no one is there to obstruct my view.

Those quotes from the children are just darling. I like that. Nobody stands in front of my house when it´s my birthday. Ha ha ha ha.

"‘When Mary learns how to become Queen, she'll have to start by opening all of Queen Margrethe's mail.’" :P :P

"I think Mary should help the poor and paint pictures just like the Queen.’" :P

- "Æresmedlemsskaber" means Honorymemberships, well I don't know if that is a real english word, but you get it right?

I don't think that that's a new picture. I think it was taken along with the picture with her biography but was not used and/or released. Her make-up is identical to the other picture.
