If QM didn't like her, I don't think they would be getting married.

I can't really see that HM the Queen had any choice in the matter. She knew that the CP would chose whom ever he wanted (as he has stated on several occasions) and I'm sure she would be willing to accept any woman the CP had chosen. (As long as they weren't connected to any scandals, like some of the women who have married in to the various royal families :P ) I'm sure that HM the Queen is far to smart to risk "rocking the boat", just because she might not have liked the woman the CP wanted to marry.
But in any case I think it is quite obvious that they all get along perfectly, and I don't think that the relationship between HM the Queen and Princess Alexandra is any less deep than the relationship she has with the Crown Princess.

She's the queen--she could certainly make his life miserable if she didn't think his prospective wife was suitable. I think that's one reason they dated for so very long--so the Queen could make sure she liked her.

Mary Sends Exports Soaring

Add Mary Donaldson to the list of profitable Australian exports. By marrying into Denmark's 1000-year-old monarchy, the Tasmanian law graduate who dabbled in advertising and real estate has become a one-person Australian marketing machine. In the three years from the time her relationship with Crown Prince Frederik was first revealed in the Danish press to Friday's stunning wedding in Copenhagen, Australian exports to Denmark have risen 50 per cent.

Tasmanian exporters in particular have tapped into the Danish market. Australia's trade commissioner in Denmark, Flemming Larsen, is expecting ever further growth. "In the last three years, exports from Australia to Denmark have gone from $105 million to $160 million," Mr Larsen said."I wouldn't be surprised if we see another $50 million in growth in the next year and the total jump to $250 million in a couple of years." A dramatically improved profile of Australia brings with it a much greater awareness of our products.

Mr Larsen said wine was one of the best examples, with Tasmanian wine going from sales of 1000 cases a year in Denmark to 12,000. Tasmanian companies that have had export success in the past six months include Tamar Ridge, Domaine A, Stefano Lubiano and Island Olive Grove. Meadowbank, Moorilla Estate and Pipers Brook are also thriving on the publicity. Australian arts and craft, homeware and fashion labels are booming in Denmark. And there are hefty sales from simple products such as Tim Tams, Cherry Ripes, Vegemite and Driza-Bone. Mr Larsen plans an annual Australian trade campaign in Denmark, probably around the wedding anniversary to again exploit Mary's profile.

I don't think HM the Queen would ever want to make HRH the Crown Prince's life miserable, even if she didn't like his bride. Not only does she love him, but she also knows full well that the future of the Danish Monarchy rests solely on his shoulders.... In any case I believe it to be a moot point, as I think it is obvious that there are warm feelings between HM the Queen and HRH the Crown Princess.

How is it, that Mary met QM two years ago, and not a peep was heard ?

Seems to me that Mary has something special about her .... unassuming, is that the right word?

I guess the fastest way to loose a royal boyfriend is to talk about the relationship. Mum's the word.

Well that's great for Australia, but I'm not eating Kangaroo no matter what! :P

Mary has a pretty nice monogram of her own.

Mary and Frederick's Monograms

Frederick's monogram will appear first then wait for a few seconds for Mary's.

Crown Princess' Father Starts Work in Aarhus

Math Professor John D. Donaldson, father of Crown Princess Mary, yesterday started work as guest lecturer at Aarhus University. At a press meeting today he said that he does not know where Frederik and Mary have gone for their honeymoon. He told that the period up till the wedding was hard. But he and his family have taken the Danes to their hearts, and he also believes the reverse to have happened. The period was hard because of the many arrangements with a lot of food and other goods. "The biggest moment was when I walked my daughter up the aisle," John Donaldson said at the press meeting. At the same time, he revealed that he is trying to learn the Danish language via the Internet because he feels it an obligation after he and the rest of his family have gotten a close relationship to Denmark. The Professor also did not completely reject the idea of moving to Denmark at a later point.

I didn't read all the posts in the last few days in detail, but can some-one tell me if CP Mary spoke Danish at her wedding festivities and what the quality was (like, was it improved 100% over last time)?

Two,
what language is she conversing in on her honeymoon?

Three,
I bet they say afterwards (like in a year's time) that their honeymoon was at the opposite end of Australia relative to Tasmania !!!!!!
I wonder if she's going to show some dingo's to Pingo ?

Well she said: "Ja" twice in Vor Frue Kirke, but apart from that she didn't really say anything. Not that Ja wasn't enough mind you.

The impression I get, is that Mary met her future mom-in-law at the chateau in La belle France.
Seems to me, either the Danish press or paparazzi isn't too much on the ball, or Queen Mum :flower: has got a very good understanding with the press (read, oh how boring this life is in Caix???) !!!!!!!!

Yes, it might be boring for them. Too bad. A very lovely region of France.

Take a look at that picture. she looks sweet and sincere.
two words: marie antoinette
the gorgeous french girl who was a b*tch...sound familiar?
don't EVER judge people by their looks. the most important thing is taht the love eachother. being a crown princess isnt the easiest job around so a little bit of harshness probably goes a LOOOONG way

HRH Crown Princess Mary will not have a website of her own - she is already a part of The Crown Prince's site - she has had a page there since the news of their official engagement was released on 24.september !

These days the court is working on her page, though.

It will change more, I believe :) and hope ...

Frederik and Mary

Crown Princess Mary told Ninka she met Queen Margrethe for the first time april 2002

Margrethe spends easter in the Århus palace Marselisborg, before she takes up residence at Fredensborg palace for the spring, after a few july weeks at Gråsten palace, she spends august in Caïx

The danish royals are rarely followed by paparazzis - you did notice how few photos of the private Mary were published after the press release 24.09.03 about the couple's forthcoming engagement ?

Another example : All media - danish and australian - wrote Mary had left for Australia between christmas and new year - despite paparazzis could have taken pics of her in Denmark which proved them wrong - because Mary didn't leave the country until mid january - with her fiance for her sister Patricia Bailey's wedding in Hobart 17.janaury 2004.

That's odd, because it said in Ekstra Bladet some months ago, that the Court had purchased WWW.KRONPRINSESSEN.DK and that the site would be launched some time this summer. It was in connection to a crack down on unauthorized use of domain-names.

What do you figure .... the same after as before? I doubt it.
I imagine a few months of quiet, and then ramping up to the full glare?

I would have thought is would be the other way round. We have had the full blown media interest (which was nothing compared to what Diana had to go through for the rest of her life) and then I would think there should be a lessening down.

Actually perhaps not straight after, but I don't think it will get as bad as that immediately pre-wedding.
