I understand the decision from Mary of not attending to the wedding. If we read her interview she made before her wedding, where she stressed that a marriage is something very serious and should last a lifetime (this didn't happen with Charles and Diana), we will understand why doens't she want to go to that wedding.

I appreciate that Mary takes marriage seriously but does that mean that she won't ever "associate" with anyone who is divorced? That would mean that she couldn't associate with her own brother-in-law Prince Joachim who will soon be divorced. And if she's performing a royal duty, will she not sit next to or shake hands with someone who is divorced?

And while Charles and Diana's marriage did not work out, as Camilla and Andrew Parker-Bowle's marriage, but we're talking about two different people being married: Charles and Camilla.

I think Mary taking marriage seriously and as a lifetime commitment is important but separate from the fact of why she will not attend Charles and Camilla's April 8 nuptials. She doesn't know Charles or Camilla and if Frederik, her only connection to Charles and Camilla is not there, then it would be not only rather lonely but also awkward for Mary to attend by herself. That fact is fine and sufficient reason not to attend; it shouldn't be mixed up and misconstrued with Mary's sentiments about marriage.

Mary wouldn't have a "personal" relationship yet with Charles and I don't think she's ever (formally at least) met Camilla. The relationship would therefor be between Charles and Frederik and other than being considered "peers" in their roles, I didn't think Charles and Frederik were actually friends?
Was Charles even at Mary and Fredrik's wedding? I remember the Wessexes but not Prince Charles.

A good point -- and I think you're right. Charles was not at Frederik and Mary's wedding though he did attend Felipe and Letizia's wedding the week after.

... So then Mary has never met Charles either then, and not just Camilla. If I were Mary then I wouldn't want to go to the wedding alone either -- who wants to go to a wedding when you know neither the bride nor the groom?

So only Norwegian Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit,Queen Beatrix,WA,Princess Maxima,Grand Duke Henri attend the Wedding.Maybe Fred and Mary have their own reason not to attend the Wedding.

And not many of the guests either?

Except for the days around the wedding, Mary hasn't really been to many of the Royal events where she would meet the "Royal Family". There haven't been many of those kind of events lately really.

You are speculating too much, people:-) F & M not attending the wedding, doesn't have to be because they don't approve of it or Mary disaproving of divorces. You are laying too much into it:-)

The one and only reason fot F & M not to attend the wedding, is that Frederik going on an sledge-expedition in Greenland. He is taking part in 1 or 2 weeks of the expedition. This sledge-expedition has been planned for months and is a reconsruction of an expedition done by a Dane Mylius-Erichsen in 1906-7. The Danish television DRTV is documenting the sledge-expedition, so we will see it in the future.
http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100021710/

The invitation probably was "personal" as in it maybe said "Dear Fred & Mary, we(C & C:-) would be delighted to see..." and not "Dear Royal family of Denmark, we would be delighted if you could send someone...":-)

BTW in the interview(Ninka) before the wedding, she was not talking about divorces in generel, but about her(& F's) comming marrige and that it would out of question/difficult for them to divorce because of thier position.

Sending any other representatives for the Danish Royal Family will not even be discussed, the invitation was personal, so no other members can be considered for it.
I do understand why CP Frederik and Mary are not attending the wedding of Camilla and Charles. Usually, royals don't just cancel their scheduled appointment for the sake of another invitation which came later than the earlier scheduled one. I think his visit to Greenland has already been scheduled earlier than the wedding of Camilla and Charles. So, he has to go to Greenland.

And for CP Mary's side, I think she is already scheduled to do something by the time Camilla and Charles will get married. And I think she would prefer MAYBE to go to the wedding if her husband would come. Especially that she does not know yet personally or have met Charles and Camilla. Maybe she would have agreed to attend it if another member of the DRF was also invited. But maybe they also turned it down for very important reasons.

I think they are still sending their best wishes! =)

I would have loved to see Mary and Frederik at the wedding, it probably is just a bad timing thing.

Mary could not possibly judge Charles for re-marrying, her father did so. (yes the circumstances are different) So I think we can disregard that theory.

But it is a pity, it would be nice to see Mary and Frederik in the UK and getting some press. The trip last year was not even mentioned in any newspapers I read.

Pity Mary could not come alone.
