No, that's usually not the case. But the "winter" weather seems to be playing tricks various places in Scandinavia right now; it's around 10 degrees celsius in DK these days and that's warm for the season.

I noticed in the picture from the danish royal watchers blog, Helle wore a tiara to Mary's wedding. Are she and her husband nobility?

Such nice pictures. I must confess though that at first I confussed Helle for Mary! Reason being because the first thing I looked at was the marvelous shoes Helle is wearing...and I thought it was Mary! But Mary's outfit and shoes are still really nice! Both women look beautiful!

This mightn't be the place to ask this question but "who the Helle is Baroness Reedtz-Thott?" More specifically: where does she come from? what is her maiden name? how old is she and how old is Otto? Looks like a sizeable age gap, perhaps...she is maybe 32 years old to his 45? Is she from an aristocratic background or did she just marry into it?

Mary looked beautiful in white!
I really liked the colourful dress of Baroness Helle Reedtz-Thott!

Xeara, the thirtysomething Baroness Helle Reedz-Thott is a close friend of the Crown Prince couple. The Baroness is from Denmark and has been married to the Baron for several years now.

Perhaps Lasse can tell us more about the Baroness' background since my Danish is limited at the moment.

I haven't been able to find much about her either; only that she was Helle Zøfting before she married Otto Reedtz-Thott. I think I've read somewhere that she comes from Hillerød (approx. 50 km north of Copenhagen) - the town where the Frederiksborg Castle (my personal favourite ) is located - the couple was married in the castle church there (same church as Joachim and Alexandra were married in).

I found out a bit more too...She was Helle Zofting before she married on the 24 August 2002...Prince Frederik and the then "Mary Donaldson" attended the wedding...Does anyone know how old they are? (both Helle and Otto)...I want to know their age gap?

Royal Hunt!! Although a royal tradition it is not a beautiful practice I'm disappointed that this royal family do make incentives for this kind of "sport".

Why? What wrong with hunting?

Well Mary does not look like she is putting on much weight at all. I hope everything is well with her!

I know it is very strange. How many months of pregnancy does she have by now? I guess it is different with every woman.

Not all women put on a ton of weight with their pregnancies. When my mom was pregnant with me, she put on about 20-30 lbs and when she was pregnant with my sister, she put on 40. It differs from woman to woman.

With Christian, Mary put on most of her pregnancy weight after she stopped with the official engagements

I only put on 10 pounds during my pregnancy. I was sick all the time too. You just can't tell, different bodies and genetics play a role. As long as she eats well she's fine. It isn't fat it's nutrients.

I think Mary looks the best when she's pregnant because the weight gain rounds out and softens her face.

I know this is a bit off topic, but some women actually lose weight during their first stages of pregnancy. And later on all they gain is in the belly!

Mary does not seem to be putting on weight, but her face does seem softer...it really becomes her.

Alright, so, what and when is Mary's next engagment? When is Fred's?
