Thanks for posting the article Julia - guess they're missing the most important line from the meeting in France.....Frederik also said that "He's always exciting when there's something special coming", which really made the journalists even more curious....

And Humera, it isn't the Danish people who gossips- it was one(!) magazine....the rest of the people is supporting her, not speculating on her health in that way, only that they hope she's getting better!
At least that's what we've understood from everyone around us!

I both agree and disagree with you here.

It is unfortunate that Mary's life is now such an open book for everyone and anyone to gossip and speculate about. Were she still plain old Mary Donaldson going about her marketing/real estate or whatever career in Australia, no one but her family would've cared about her gallstone operation. But as the Crown Princess of Denmark, even something as simple as a regular visit to the doctor opens itself to speculation of pregnancy or infertility or whatever.

But on the other hand, Mary knew what she was getting into when she entered into a relationship with a Crown Prince. She could've ended the relationship at any point during the 2+/3 years she and Frederik were dating. During their relationship the press followed her around a lot so she had a taste of what life in the public eye would be like. It's not as if she came about this life unawares of the not so nice parts of it.

Too bad she's not pregnant.
Such a letdown after her gallstone op and the pending divorce plans of her in-laws.

well I can understand your point of view. The question is, what is the limit when it comes to speculating/gossiping about the lives of royalty, celebrities etc. Everyone, no matter how famous they are, is entitled to being treated with a modicum of dignity.
In my opinion, once the palace officially announced that Mary had surgery, that is quite enough. There's no need to go on alleging so-called "cover-ups" as some members on this board have done. Thats bordering on paranoia.

It´s royal life

I agree. Mary knew this is what comes with being Crown Princess, so she decided she still wanted to marry Fred, and be scrutinised, instead of being plain Mary, like you and me, who never get to weat those jewels, have a new outift for every event, have to do your own housework, but enjoy the lack of publicity. There are positives and negatives in our very different lives-Mary chose hers, so I don´t feel sorry for her. The rest of us have to be stressed by work and taxes etc, and maybe even for some, stress of not being noticed!

I agree with that, Xandra, but I believe there is a limit, maybe of decency, that all of us shouldn't cross. Gossiping after the facts are clear is plain nasty, I understand Mary chose this life of "limelight" but she still has a private LIFE, which I believe the media has no right to enroach over. All I can say then to the media people is GET A LIFE...:p

or, she's really pregnant and they don't want to give the secret away (and accidentally did by having her drive after her "operation").

PDAS1201, you´re right. Limelight is one thing, but digging for dirt is something else.

First of all, gallbladder removal or cholecystectomy can be done through a laparoscope so the client has four small incisions with approximately three or less stitches each.

Suture (stitches) removal is not major surgery; it's not even minor surgery. There is no general or local anasthetic involved. It's usually a nursing precedure. It may be a little uncomfortable but it usually requires no sedation.

The client can drive to and from the clinic/hospital for suture removal.
