OKAY... I don't think it matters who is prettier or who stays up longer than the other one. I think they are equally pretty anyway. Back to Crown Princess Mary, does anyone know what she is doing next?

Frederik's father is French, and I believe the family (Margrethe, Henrik, Frederik & Joachim) always talked French at home.

Prince Henrik is a native French . So he speaks fluently French and I guess his two sons also speak this language . So the future heir will also have French origins, that's probably why they want him/her to learn French .

He's not related to the French royal family. He's an aristocrat: count Henri de Laborde de Monpezat.


When he married Margrethe he changed his French name (Henri) into Danish (Henrik), maybe that's why you assumed he was Danish.

I don't think none of them would know what to be jealous of about the other. The media here in Denmark almost never writes about Letizia and I guess the same would be for the Spanish media about Mary. So unless they have some contact privately, they probably do not know that much about each other. It’s only us few royal watcher on the boards around the internet, that “yarn on” about Letizia this and Mary that.

Everybody is entitled to their opinons here. No opinon is "wrong" so long as the person believes in their opinons. Physical appearances are subjective, and while one member may think Letizia is prettier than Mary, others will not. There is no need to trample over the opinons of others just because you do not share those opinons.

Furthermore, the Spanish royal court has officially addressed the matter of Letizia's weight and have said that she is not anorexic. Any further discussions of Letizia being anorexic is pure speculation and gossip, and as such is not permitted as per our Forum Posting Rules & Guidelines: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ead.php?t=4920.

Mary and Frederik dated two or three years before they got married. She moved to Denmark to get to know the country and Frederik better. They've already has lots of time to be together without others. I'm not surprised that she is having a baby at this time. Frederik and Mary seem to love children so it would seem logical for them to have them soon.

Letizia and Felipe dated a short time and then got engaged all in a few months. They are still having time to themselves that they didn't get before because their acquaintance wasn't long. They also strike me as wanting to wait to have children. I think they like children OK, but aren't necessarily overly fond of them. They will probably have more fun with their children when they are teenagers then when they are children.

Well, that's your opinion, for me Princess Letizia is very, very pretty.

Thanks Alexandria.

There is no need to tell anyone how to react in a given situation and you have no reason to call anyone "doll." That expression is very condescending.

Are you serious? Have you seen Felipe and Letizia near children? Have you seen their pictures from their trip to Brazil?

Be clear here that I'm not discussing Fred and Mary fondness for children, I see clearly that they're very fond of them. My point is, samitude, that I think you're opinion is a little far from the truth in regards of Felipe and Letizia.

Take a look around in their threads, especially the ones which portray them with their nieces and nephews, you'll see that they are as fond of children as Fred and Mary.

I agree; I think that both couples are fond of children, and no couple less. How can one say that one couple likes children more and the other OK? That is like saying that one husband loves his wife more than the other.

Before Mary and Letizia, both Frederik and Felipe were wonderful and playful uncles. Frederik in numerous photoshoots as well as family gatherings was always playing with Nikolai who beamed in his uncle's company; just as both Cristina and Elena's children were fond of Felipe. During the Sydney Olympic games when Inaki was competing still, and Juanito was about a year old and Cristina was pregnant with Pablo, there were several pictures of Felipe playing with his nephew during the game. And just as Mary is very comfortable with the children of her sisters and brother, so is Letizia with her nieces. Back in the fall Felipe and Letizia both spent an afternoon with Cristina's sons at the park, as well as at Christmas time with Letizia's sisters a day at the circus (or something like that), and during the Easter holidays with not just their niece and nephews, but also with Rosario and Kyril of Bulgaria's three children.

I don't think it's fair to say that one couple likes or is better with young children better than the other or that the other will like their kids more when they are teenagers. It's another comparison between these two women as well as between these two couples that is unfair to both of them.

I'm saying that this is how they strike me. They may like children very well. I don't know them at all. This is just my opinion by looking at photos and videos only; and I do realize that one certainly can't just go by a videos or photos of public appearances. Some people aren't baby/little children people. These people probably feel more comfortable with older children and teenagers. I personally like babies and children and would like 5 to 7 someday! :)

It's kind of like a woman who used to work at the library with my sister. She said she really didn't care for babies much, but she really enjoyed her girls more after they became teenagers. I certainly don't think this means she loved her husband less then someone who felt more comfortable with babies then teens.

Whew....does this make sense? I hope so.
