Its perfectly normal to look nervous and tense when you're in the public spotlight for the first time. If everybody who felt nervous in public was labelled snobbish, we'd have a lot of snobs out there Then what would the world be coming to!

well... she was looking up, it's quite normal you raise your chin when doing so and that doesn't mean you are snobish or too self confident.

however, many people (including myself) think mary thinks too much about her and maybe is too self confident and that's not only because of the raise of the chin.

I agree with Carlota. I said before in a thread that Mary is turning into a "Princess Diana". She thinks too much of herself and you're going to see more of it. She will be a problem; and I am waiting to see how the Royal Family handles her.

As far as the raising the chin; Princess Caroline of Monaco does the same. Now, I remember reading that Attorney Robert Shapiro told one of his famous client (I don't want to mention his name, horrible person) that he should raise his chin when facing the photographers. This way your eyes will not red when the cameras flash.

But what has she done to make you say that? There's not enough in the photos to draw that conclusion.

Not just from her pictures (which actually can tell alot about most people) but her actions in the past, her mannerisms, the Photo Shoots that she has given (correct me anyone, please, if I'm wrong, but what other Crown Princess has given Photo Shoots and esp. so quickly after her marriage, and the statements and interviews that she has given. Now I know that Princess Caroline has done numerous, and in my opinion also, she falls into this category also, but that is who she is and she is a personal friend of Designers). If I am wrong, I will be the first to post it on this and any board as I did when I softened my opinion on Camilla upon seeing how happy Prince Charles is.

Aren't there other princess who are friends with designers?

Is there something saying that she should not be a friend with any designer at all?

Many princess' are friends with designers I am sure. Princess Caroline is a very close friend of the head of Channel. Plus, Karl Lagerfeld is a well know photographer. There is nothing wrong with that.

Well michelle, I think you're right, only time will tell. For now, I don't see anything from the photos other than she is reserved and sometimes a bit nervous. She may be haughty - but its impossible for me to tell from these photos at this point.

I was surprised at the interest in fashion shows but that to me shows a superficiality not necessarily a pretentiousness.

The interviews and endless photo shoots seem to be a trademark of the Danish Royal Family. They give a lot of interviews and are much more accessible to the media than for example, the British Royal Family. Somehow I don't think they would let Mary set this agenda for something as visible as this before her marriage.

Is the reason why the DRF does so many interviews and photo shoots b/ they don't have a full as calendar as other royal families?

Good question, Reina.

I was under the impression that they are out and about more than other royal families. Somehow I don't think all their activities get recorded in the Royal Calendar.

I think Queen Margrethe has a bit of the theatrical temperament. She likes to be down-to-earth but then she really likes to pull off a good show when the situation calls for it. She's designed tapestries, monograms, all sorts of theatrical props for the Royal family. The Danes in their regalia are about the most royal looking family today. They have the props, they have the attitude, it just flows. I think Margrethe is more outgoing than Mary and that's where the difference between the two women lies but Margrethe wasn't always that outgoing.

The Royal Family is also outspoken. Margrethe has given some controversial speeches but it hasn't affected her popularity. Henrik went off into France with a statement to the press that he had been degraded and apparently the Queen had seen and approved of the statement. That really surprised me. Frederik is the only crown prince I know of that has several interviews on his website. Perhaps they want to remain regal yet accessible at the same time?

Its almost a given that as a royal, Mary would be expected to fall into this pattern. That's why I don't believe Margrethe would let Mary just come in and set her own agenda like this.

For right now, I think Mary is unusual-looking but that can be an advantage as a royal. She seems to be a bit stand offish but given the intrusiveness of the press, I think that's wise for now.

Give her a couple of more years, and then we can really see what kind of Crown Princess and later Queen she will be.

I think we have to reconize the fact that Mary is doing a very good job since she married with FredericK! For what I see in the photos nothing says to me that she became snob or pretensious...In my opinion she could be on the beach, doing shop, or salling like other royals do...but no, she's pregnant,probably very nervous and tired,without overcareful husband...performing her tight agenda. This is my opinion of course.

can't agree with you more! i also thought she was too pretentious when i saw her in all those covers in magazines so short after the marriage. you are also quite right in what you said about camilla and charles. i changed my opinion so much after the wedding and saw a lot of true love there. however, (maybe it's too late to judge but...) i don't think this is the case. i find her more as an "attention seeker" than a princess...

Agree, it will be fair enough for her....sometime people have a wrong start but they still can fix it in the future.

btw I was refering to her in general not just those pictures so no I dont expect her to look down on a stage that are floating on the water. I expect her to look relax and confident like many other royals I admire that do not raise their chin up majority of times to seeming snobish in a sense.

It does look snobbish, but Mary doesn't come off as being pretentious. I think that Mary is trying to make herself look poised and isn't pulling it off very well. She is still new to the game and eventually she will take notice of how it looks in photos and adjust her actions. She still needs more time to really assert herself and become comfortable. Raising her chin up from time and time is not the end of the world. All things considered, she is doing a fine job.

Glowing pregnancy of our princess radiant

THERE'S no disguising Princess Mary's growing bump even if she wanted to.

Tasmanian-born Mary and her husband, Danish Crown Prince Frederik, attended a floating theatre yesterday for the opening of a musical based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen's harbour.
