I think it's wonderful how CP Mary has been embraced by soooo many fans. I believe it's because she is genuine, naturally attractive and very healthy looking. I'm not surprised she has been asked to do all the tasteful photo shoots, and subsequently took part, she's quite photogenic. :)

Other facts about CP Mary are that she was single when she began dating Frederick, never married prior, she's fresh looking and people can't get enough of her.

Mary has certainly hit the ground running and it is nice to see her mother-in-law applaud her for the job.

Denmark hit the jackpot with both Mary and Alexandra.

Margrethe's praise of Mary will only increase Mary's self-esteem and self-confidence in her role as Crown Princess. Mary has truly blossomed since her marriage! To have your mother-in-law praise you is one thing, but to have a truly exceptional Queen such as Margrethe praise you in your new role as a royal is quite another!!!!:) It suggests that Margrethe has a very close relationship with Mary!:)

I have to disagree with the four photo shoot ideas. She only has done 2 as princess. Vogue and Dansk. The new Idea one was made of of pictures taken for Vogue. She did not do a shoot for them. The Nikia interview was pre-princess and a way for her new countrymen to get to know her. It was not a fashion modeling shoot.

It must be a great boost of confidence to Mary to get such wonderful praises from her mother-in-law.

So we are going to disregard the Women's magazine one now then?

An interview is an interview, no matter what the reason behind it, whether it's to promote Danish fashion or for her fellow countrymen to get to know her.

it's great that Mary has now won over a lot of people. she seems very secure and confident in her role as crown princess. i'm really glad that people like her better now than when she and Frederik were still engaged.
Mary seems to have lost the initial attack of nerves she must have gone through and is now able to 'loosen up' and show the people her real self.

"Kronprinsparret" means the Crown Princely couple. The Crown Princely couple along with HRH Prince Joachim and HH Princess Alexandra will attend the inaugural opening of Danfoss Park. Danfoss Park is Denmark's only science and experience park.

:)

On May 12th and May 13th the Crown Princess will participate in 2 engagements concerning her charities.

Is it just me or are there others, who think, that Mary and Frederik don´t perform many duties? The calendar for May shows only 7 pins http://www.hkhkronprinsen.dk/2000f/Year/2004/Month/9 (5 duties for Frederik, 5 for Mary) Could it be, that some duties are added later? Yes, Mary is pregnant, but actually she should be now in the best phase of the pregnancy (after the nausea and before the bigger grown baby causes problems like tiredness, shortness of breath, back problems...) and I doubt, that Frederik is pregnant too :p
On the whole they haven´t performed many duties since their wedding...are they lazy? Or is maybe "small" Denmark with less inhabitants than e.g the Netherlands or Spain to blame?

So you think that Mary is lazy... Do you realize that Mary performed 10 solo engagements within the first seven months of being a Crown Princess? Name another CP who has accomplished that? If I count every single appearance at the Copenhagen International Fair, the solo engagements add up to twelve. This is in addition to her engagements with Frederik and the Royal Family.

Except for the trip to Thailand, Frederik's and Mary's trips abroad were packed with activities. They each had solo engagements to perform beside the events they attended together. Not every single activity was reported in the forums and sometimes, pictures were posted without explanations so it was difficult to tell if F&M were performing a duty or not. Just because Frederik and Mary make it look like fun, it doesn't mean they are not working.

I wouldn´t say, that I think they are lazy...I´ve just asked, if it could be, that they are...because their schedule (which I check every month) doesn´t show many duties.
While I think, that it´s a shame, that crown princess Letizia has no solo duties and seems a bit like Felipe´s "doggy" and while I admire Mary for handling the solo engagements, I would though say, that it´s a difference, if a princess has almost daily duties (alone or together) or if she has almost no duties. Theoretically the time is "off", when one has no duties. A Royal can do, what he/she prefers. Something which e.g cp Letizia can do less (even though she mainly "just" has to accompany her husband). I say theoretically, because I know, that all Royals have to do work behind the "scenes" (work in the office, preparing through reading etc.) and because I know, that Mary has to learn a complete new language.
To sum: I just wanted to hear other opinions...I can see a few aspects, but I don´t know enough about their daily life to say "they are lazy"...so far they just give me this impression

Are you serious? Look at the massive amounts of pictures in the threads in this forum and the discussions. How can they be lazy and not performing any duties or making any public appearances? If that were so we wouldn't have anything to discuss and there would be nothing to photograph. Fred and Mary have just returned from Japan and before that they were in Australia. Let us not forget the numerous solo duties they have performed along with those that they have together. I don't think that they are the least bit lazy.

Fred and Mary must also do some work behind the scenes preparing for their enagements. I seriously doubt that they spend the majority of their time at home lying on the sofa and watching television. Fred and Mary haven't performed many duties since their wedding? I don't see how that is the least bit logical. Don't you see the vast amount of information that we have on their various duties and appearances.
