I didn't really know where to post this, so here goes. Are Frederick and Mary, probably more Frederick, close with Crownprincess Victoria/the Swedish Royal family? I know they're related through Queen Ingrid of Denmark, born Princess of Sweden but just because you share blood doesn't mean you're close. I know Victoria and Frederick did an official duty together but that doesn't really mean that they're close. Just wanted to know because it's mentioned in couple of threads that Victoria is a very likely choice as godmother to the little prince, which i fully support!

Interesting question "SG".

It would seem that the Danish royal family share a good and solid bond with their fellow Scandinavian relations/ counterparts.

Queen Margrethe, King Harald, Queen Sonja and Prince Henrik are known to have shared many skiing holdiays together (in Norway, I think).

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Prince Haakon-Magnus are very good friends (Frederik being Haakon's best man at his wedding in 1999) and Crown Princess Victoria is also rather close to her Danish cousin.

I would like it very much if both the Crown Prince of Norway & Crown Princess of Sweden were to be den Lilleprinsen's godparents. We must wait and see...

Its only the Queens, Harald is not that keen on long skiing trips and I cant imagine Henrik is either, and ofcourse its in Norway, skiing possibilities in Denmark are limited

Indeed, what was thinking!!! Why I thought 1999 I dont know.

Who said it (the skiing trips) had to be anywhere in Denmark, let alone Scandinavia? It just turns out Norway's where they have taken place thus far. It could be in Switzerland if they wished, but they dont.

I am most sure I have seen a photograph of Henrik with Harald, Margrethe & Sonja taken in the snow with ski's 'n' all. I shall have to do some looking...

Denmark vs Spain??? ha ha ha

What I found very funny, is the synchronization between the Danish and Spanish CP couples.

They announced their wedding with 2 weeks difference (October 14th, November 1st)

They married with one week difference (May 14, May 22nd)

They announced pregnancy with 2 weeks difference (April 25th, May 8th)

They had a baby with 2 weeks difference (October 14th, October 31st)

Both couples had their baby, exactly 2 years after their engagement announcement

And now they Christen with 1 week difference (Jan 14th, Jan 21st) !!! At is the first time that Spain preceeds Denmark


All these evens are not simple coincidences??? or signes for a commun destiny

HAPPINESS to both of these wonderfull babies

What do you say, something about them being star-crossed lovers? or maybe that they are going to have parallel lives?

Those are some very interesting coincidences! I doubt they will have the same destiny because they are two very different countries and families, but if they both announce that Princess Mary and Princess Letizia are pregnant and due around the same time I may change my opinion. LOL!

I remember seeing on that TV series 'A Royal Family', footage of the two queens skiing together, I think Harald and Henrik were there but I couldn't be sure.

Just imagine the kind of sacrifices that one or the other would have to do for love (renounce throne, change religion, country), it's hard stuff to do!!!

Double Victory for Denmark's Darling in our Royal Vote
Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Princess Mary made quite an impression on their home country's New Year's eve celebrations when they turned out for a lavish party in Christiansborg Palace dressed in full ceremonial attire. The Danish couple doesn't need to dress up to win public favour, though, as the results of two hellomagazine.com polls prove that they, along with their new baby boy, are among Europe's most popular royals.............

From an astrology point of view, Christian and Leonor are destined to have almost parallel lives. Just look at how similar their birth charts are. I haven't seen much similarity between the charts of the other heirs to the throne (Elisabeth, Catharina-Amalia, Ingrid-Alexandra).

I'm with you but all the same, I was wondering about their winning that poll because it showed they are more popular evidently than even Felipe of Spain, which seemed at least interesting..I mean, after all, no matter what we might think of them, Felipe and Letizia aren't exactly ugly people, and the cinderella story would apply to Letizia as well, non?! Or even to Maxima. That's my confusion..why are Fred n Mary so much more popular? I think you're right and it probably has to do with the exposure and PR in the press. Because again, compared to Felipe and Letizia, and even Alexander and Maxima, the Danish crown-princely couple seems very UNaccomplished, imo.
Well Maxima and Willem-Alexander are my favorites, but I like them all. It's not really a competetion for me. The thing I was saying is that there are just more articles and pictures posted of Mary and Fredrick. Wether that is because they pose for them and create the publicity, or the public wants it, who knows. The Spanish and Dutch family are more low-key in those arenas.

I live in the states and Mary was covered here and Maxima,Letizia weren't. I don't know why. Perhaps because Americans are more familiar with Australia than the other countries?

Although, I feel like we might get in trouble for being a bit off-topic.
