How money is spent by royals will be always a topic of discussion and/or disagreement. That is the reason why some royalties dont even report their expenses. People that have problem with the monarchy, will always use this subject as a reason of why their countries should avoid the system. How many times we have seen similars reports from other royals, it doesnt make Fred and Mary any different or any worse. Most of the european royalties has suffered of the same acussations in the latest years, nothing new.

I don't know anything about the Danish taxpaying system but, from what I have seen and heard of Frederik and Mary's appearances, they have earned every penny.:)

I guess it's the same in Denmark as in Germany, which does not have a Royal family but a head of state: the citizen vote for their representatives, these form the parliament and then parliament agrees on the money the state is going to spent on representation including financing the head of state.

If there are years in which additional costs are to be covered (eg Germany had to repair Bellevue palace in Berlin, seat of our head of state) additional money is being agreed upon by parliament.

So the whole costs of representation is monitored by parliament. Thus, it doesn't matter if the country in question is a monarchy or a republic. So one can leave it at that. It's not after all as if Frederick and Mary became indebted and the state had to cover these debts. They spent what was theirs to spent and for the things they deemed necessary.

Denmark's Australian-born Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik attend a concert by the band Outlandish at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark , Tuesday, June 27 2006. The museum was reopened Tuesday after a 3 year renovation. The museum is best known for its impressionist paintings, antique sculptures, an Etruscan collection and Danish art.

I like the shoes more than the dress . The shoes are really summery and I've always had a thing for peep-toe shoes. Does anybody have more photos? I've been looking through several photo agencies and there's nothing! :(

Yes, we must give Frederick credit this time . He's not wearing hideous purple pants or a ridiculously oversized coat. Bravo, Frederick! A tailored suit looks good on you! :p

Mary is one of the few royals that really looks good with a hat without looking matronly or old fashioned. Maybe is the choice of hats, maybe is her interesting bone structure and long neck, but she pulls it off like few others.
