I agree. Well said. It would be nice if the 4th estate would do better.

Well someone put the interview Mary gave to Dansk online and all they talked about was about fashion in Denmark which I thought was rather appropriate as she is the patron of CIFF.

And why is everyone blaming [I]Mary[\I] for promoting herself? Shouldn't it be her advisors or the DRF who are promoting her? I mean, she would have to have permission from the DRF to do all these interviews and all these photoshoots. She was obviously allowed to do them, so the DRF must think that it is good PR. I think it's great that they are breaking the rule - 'royals should not give interviews'.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

Mary wouldn't be seeking out these interviews herself. A request would be sent to the palace, who would filter out many of the requests before Mary, and the rest of the Royal Family even sees them, I'd imagine.

Neither do I think that three major interviews is a lot. If she had done ten in the past months, then we could start debating, but three? It's also one of those things I imagine will even out as time goes on.

But I guess you can't expect much from hard work from Mary if her own husband doesn't work too hard either. This couple is the least hard working of all their peers. Other Crown Prince couples who have young children work harder than them. Crown Princess Maxima is 4/5 months pregnant yet she is in Africa for several days.
I think Mary has been doing quite a lot of "real" work the last months. She has been at Hjaetrefonden and julmaerkefonden and at that brain disease fund and at Landsforeningen SIND. She has inaugurated highways and been at the fashion fair. She has also been in NY and now she's in Australia. And besides from the last two trips she has done this on her own, without her husband. Therefore I think she's doing really well.

Lol, well you know its because Fred and Mary make "work" look like a whole lotta fun!!!!

I mean seriously, they're in Australia raising money for the Victor Chang Cardiac Insitute, they're doing their bit for cancer research (which is very relevant for Denmark because apparently, skin cancer is on the rise in Denmark, and Australia is a world leader when it comes to skin cancer research), Save the Children, appointing Australian and New Zealand hand Christian ambassadors etc etc.... but its just been so much fun! No boringness associated with their events, no siree!

For example, I went to the harbour to watch the yacht race on Sunday (I left too early because I thought the race was at 12.30.... but let's not go there... I'm still disappointed about that) and it was just such a great day out! All these people arriving really early (we arrived at 10 am and there were already people perched on the seawall and lining the opera house steps). And a couple of boats would go past displaying the Danish flag! And Frederik's yacht appeared and raised its polar bear spinnaker (because his boat's called Nanoq, which is apparently "polar bear" in Greenlandic or Danish or something) and people lining the Opera House steps cheered! It was so lovely! Hmmm, they must've been Danes.... though we Aussies have been well informed and we've been told in the newspapers that Nanoq means polar bear).

Yaaayyy Frederik and Mary!!!

Oh, and did anyone see the Denton interview??? So hilarious! They're both really funny! Frederik is such a cutie, and Mary's got a mean sense of humour! For real, I was just laughing so much. Awww, they're both so sweet. Gotta watch it! For you Aussies, it will be repeated again... check your TV guides or call ABC.

Yes, they are both came across as very sweet.

Of course, they didn,t give too much away; but there were a couple of intersting comments about the way the media works...

Crown Princess Mary said she had to be careful during the opening of the Danish Parliament because the photographers would be waiting for her (or any of the Danish Royals) to blink. If they managed to get a picture with eyes closed, they could be accused of being bored or of being asleep.

She was asked about the most ridiculous story she had read about herself. She replied that it was reading that she was 14 weeks pregnant [when she went to hospital for her gall bladder operation], with calculations as to the expected date of the birth.

Because the pregnancy story was a complete fabrication she said she now looks at other stories in magazines [about other people] and wonders if they too have been completely made up.

There may be a transcript published on the ABC web site (abc.com.au) at some stage, but who knows, it may be subject to Palace control/copyright.
.

Dennis has posted the link to the transcript of the interview on the "Frederik and Mary to Visit Australia" thread.

Worth reading!

Is Mary as tall as Princess Diana????

Hi,


I have always thought Mary was somewhere between 5'5 and 5'7 but now I am not sure.

Mary and Princess Diana danced with the same man in Aus., it is bad that I don't know who he is but it was when Mary wore the long black gown with the silver bit around her waist.

Anyway, Mary looks as tall as Diana did against the man, maybe one is wearing shorter shoes but it made me wonder.

I would have thought Mette-Marit is as tall as Diana, and Mary was smaller.

Anyone know what height Mary is in feet and inches?

Or Mette-Marit and Maxima??

Thanks in advance!

I think your thoughts are right!


Princess Diana had the same height as her husband charles who's 5'9 = 178cm according to the british posters,that's why she wasn't wearing heels:)

I came across picture of CP.frederik beside P.Charles(in the funeral of josefine charlotte),he looks not that tall,he's like 2cm shorter than charles,i think he's around 176cm or 5'8,but mary is still shorter than her husband wearing heels,so i think you thoughts are accurate and she's between 5'5 to 5'7,but not as tall as was princess Diana who was 5'9!

Some danish articles about Mary published during easter


http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100300158/

Mary does to much modelling
The historian Steffen Heiberg thinks Mary has done to much modelling and says that she must not remind people of an american movie star, he says there are not the same regalness\worthyness over an istitutuion if the members of the royal family acts in model situations. He further says that he fears for the monarchys future if the young generations becomes to common and to much like models\celebreties, then the royal house will just be a upperclas thing living on tax payers money. The royal HOuse has to rember its history and tradition. He warns agains becomming like the british royal family and says that there should not be to many divorces, he also says that when on gets a "common" CP she comes with a past and that the media will be very interested in that past as they have been in Spain and Norway and also is in Denmark

http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100300158/
communication experts Klaus Kjøller says that Mary will be in risiko (of what??) if she continues to model, but he also says that he thinks it is her choice to present her self as a very elegant princess and that she is very aware of her possibilitites. The Royal house has to renew\modenize it self. He dont think there is any danger as long as Queen Margrethe is a live and says it is hard to imagine Denmark without the Royal Family

http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100021710/
Frederik said in an interview in Austrralia that: In some situations it is good that the woman is in the front and that you have to creat your self and you life with in you age It is nice to have pictures of youself in young clothes whilst one is still young and look good

http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100021706/
Interview with a swedish Professor that I think has previously been posted in swedish and Norwegian papers, says that the modern Princesses has a very difficult job, not only do they have to look good in ball gowns they also has to be a good mother and wife, be beautiful, sporty,have lifeexperience and be able to answer all sorts of questions. She thinks all the new Princesses has done very well.



http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100300158/

the body everyone speaks about
Some think she has lost to much weight and is a dangerous rolemodel for young girls, others think she is a perfect representative of the healthy life style. The whole of Denmark has seen how she has become tinyer by the day and that Uffe Frank had to take in her wedding dress several times before the wedding. The slimmer she has gotten the more praize for her looks she has recieved. Social Advisor Lena Rem is concerned, she says it is dangerous that everyone talks about how pretty Mary is, and it can get women to be even more critical of their own look and eatingdisorders is an increasing problem among young girls. Also a children psychiatric is concerned and says that almost all female rolemodels are very slim, she also says boys dont have the same preassure

A childrens Doctor says Mary is good rolemodel for a healthy and sporty lifestyle, and one should not make it out that everyone that is thin is sick. She is also happy that Frederik is now very rarely pictured smoking


http://ekstrabladet.dk/VisArtikel.iasp?PageID=288001
Mary and Frederik had their hooneymoon in Kenya, the borrowed the retreat\range of a rich dane called Jan Bonde. its south west of Nairobe and is 65000 acres and is guarded by 60 armed guards. Bondes children went to the same school at Amalienborg as Frederik and Joachim
