There sure is several levels between having billions and having nothing None of the Scandinavian royal houses has billions. That does not mean that they are poor, they are all well of. In the last annual report from the Danish royal house it says that Frederik and Mary has 4 million dk a year for private use to cover amongst other things clothes, furniture, personal travels (and secretary of non official caracter- Im not quite sure what that means though)

And the jewellery that Mary wears at the big events are mostly old pieces, inherited through the lines of the Royal Families. Like the ruby parure she have worn which such grace - that originally comes from Queen Desirée of Sweden and then via Queen Ingrid (as Princess of Sweden) to Denmark.

Some smaller "modern" jewellery that she wears in everyday life may come as gifts from Fredrik, or from their appanage.

On Saturday 7 May 2005 Odense Steel Shipyard’s latest newbuilding for A.P. Moller - Maersk was named

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary honoured the owner, A.P. Moller - Maersk, by naming the newbuilding GUDRUN MÆRSK at Odense Steel Shipyard.

After the namegiving ceremony Their Royal Highnesses inspected the GUDRUN MÆRSK. From the bridge they had a good view of the entire Shipyard and the surroundings, including Odense Fjord as well as the deck with room for the many containers.

The Chairman of the Yard, Mr Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, hosted the namegiving, which was attended by guests from A.P. Moller - Maersk as well as employees from the Yard and their families, in all more than 2,500 people.

With GUDRUN MÆRSK Odense Steel Shipyard has started the delivery of a new series of updated container vessels which similar to the others are produced with the purpose of securing an extensive automation of the vessel’s operation, cargo control and surveillance. The choice of materials for the vessel as well as the interior is of highest quality based on Danish design – a characteristic for the container vessels built at Odense Steel Shipyard.

With GUDRUN MÆRSK the standard for environmentally friendly vessels has been further increased.

With its 12-cylinder diesel engine from HSD-Wärtsilä Sulzer, which develops 93,000 BHP, GUDRUN MÆRSK will after delivery enter Maersk Sealand’s worldwide liner service and thereby together with the other vessels contribute to a global, competitive and flexible quality transport for the company’s customers.

GUDRUN MÆRSK is registered in Svendborg and will be commanded by Captain Søren Sparre Maagaard with Jens Lykke Sørensen as Chief Engineer.

Umm... A danish version of ClearBlue?!?

I don't like the beige outfit especially because the hemline of the blazer is weirdly cut and accentuates the belly area. And not in a good way. It looks like the blazer is too small!

Thank you for the photos and articles everyone. I really like the suit Mary is wearing in the photos above. Very nice. I don't know if I like the white (??) shirt sticking out though.

I agree. I like the suit (it is much better than yesterdays IMO) but I am not a fan of the shirt sticking out.

" Mærsk" stands for the name of the company, not sure what "Gudrun" means, only our Danish members can tell us that.


Here Mærsk's McKinney-Møller greets the Princess. You can clearly see the bump in this pic.

The article states that the Family in total is worth 1 billion. I would take that to be anyone in the Danish Royal family. Not just those that we see and hear about. Maybe they aren't worth that much. Who knows...that's just how I understood things when I read the article.

i think the only thing really different is their style of dressing...they all wear designer gowns and suits...also the amount of time they wear suits and gowns are different...Letizia wears suits alot of similar colours so i think it makes it looks as if she has a small collection of suits compared to Mary...and Mary does recycle clothes so it's not as if she's wearing new clothes at every public appearance :)
