I think that's because Alexandra actually isn't regarded as a particularly stylish woman! In fact I recall reading articles in the Australian papers saying how they hoped Mary's stylish dress wouldn't be crushed in the same way, and that Alexandra had become decidedly frumpy in her choices since marrying. I have to say so many of her gala dresses are like Princess Barbie on speed - huge ball skirts and nipped in waistes in pastel shades. I am much more enjoying Mary's sleeker taste.

the other voters have gone after vote 1X, just mary's suporters and mary's haters keep voting their candidate as many as they want (because it is possible to vote more than once time):p , so why do we pay much attention in "hello" poll. BTW I would like to know the result of The Daily Telegraph, poll to determine their "Woman of the Year".

I like Princess Alexandra, she's a great princess, but i must admit i agree with Napoleon...sometimes her gala dresses are so boofy and not very elegant...

There have been earlier discussions about what organizations Mary would patronize. I was looking at the Crown Prince's website and they list a few. Here is the list with a description.

Copenhagen International Fashion Fair

Since 1993, Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) has been staged at Bella Center in a close co-operation between Bella Center and The Federation of Danish Textiles & Clothing. CIFF, which is held twice yearly, has grown into the biggest fashion fair in Europe, with several thousand collections covering mens' and ladies' fashions, children's wear, shoes and bags.


The Danish Association for Mental Health

The Danish Association for Mental Health is an NGO which was founded in 1960. The association advocates greater understanding and tolerance of people with mental health problems and their families and seeks to take and support initiatives to promote mental well-being, prevention and recovery. The association has some 5000 members and branches in all regions of the country.

The Christmas Seal Foundation

The Christmas Seal Foundation is founded in 1904, and is specially known for the first Christmas seal in the world.

The Christmas seal are used to raise money to help children.

The foundation owns 4 Christmas Seal Homes, where children aged 6-14 are offered a 10 weeks stay. Every year, the foundation helps 700 children to get a better and happier life.

The Danish Mental Health Fund (PsykiatriFonden) is a private humanitarian fund. Its aim is to increase the knowledge and awareness of mental illness, causes, prevention and treatment. The fund informs the public through conferences, education of school children, business consultancy as well as through the fund's own magazine, books, helpline and homepages.

I believe two (or three) new organisations have been added to the list. She's also going to be the patron for "a heart disease association and an association for brain damage affected persons" (thanks to potter from CPMaryMB) :) http://www.hkhkronprinsen.dk/9e000c .

The heart disease one makes sense - as we all know, her mum suffered from heart complications. And I think the brain damage one ties in with her interest in mental health.

How old was Mary when her mother passed away? I can't find the thread that mentions anything about this.

No, she was not 16!!
Marys mother died in 1997, so she was 25 years old.

That's because botox made her relaxed more. When somebody mentioned it, I did not believe it, but now I perked up every time she looked up, and sure enough. The pictures from London, Germany, and now several events of the charity shows, she got pictures of looking up. Hey, unmovable eyebrows and bugger eyes. I don't know why she needs it, she's only 32. When she looked up, she couldn't wrinkle, couln't bend her eyebrows, it stays zombie kind of look. She can look down or straight without being weird, but look up is just beyond her. I suspect several other royals also do the botox, rania? Maria Teresa? New generation does pursue surgery more aggressively. I appreciate Queen Elizabeth, or Beatrix's or sofia's wrinkles over silvia's.

Well you are bound to spark huge debate now with a suggestion that M uses Botox! I don't really know properly how you detect this, but I wouldn't have thought M shows sufficient absence of facial expression to really confirm such a suggestion. It would also have to have been very selective in its use on her face, as she quite clearly has lines around her eyes (ie crows feet) when she smiles (as the pictures above show), and these would have disappeared as well had they used Botox in that area.

Gosh, if Mary had used botox, we wouldn't be able to see the very noticeable wrinkles around her eyes!

Personally, I don't think this is the start of a huge debate, only because you can clerly see on the pics that mary does have wrinkles. Am I imagining it? Or does everyone else see Mary's wrinkles as well?

Anyway, here's a picture of Mary to help everyone else decide for themselves:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...nes/Mary23.jpg
(saved by Dennism and posted in another thread in this MB ... be sure to enlarge the pic!)....

Mary lived in Australia (was Australian) - and probably spent too much in the sun (like the current miss universe, a 23 year old beauty who also has wrinkles near her eyes) and you can indeed see wrinkles on her face.

Botox subject was treathed in many other places of this forum. To me it's an interesting subject and love to know what others do think about it. If there was a seperate thread for that, I would love to post my comments there, but since there isn't, here I post an article about "Aging of the face" and wrinkles ... in http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/facets/aging.jsp

Apart that "Wrinkles indicate age, and particularly for women, are seen as problematic for beauty and worth eliminating, if possible. One reason for minimizing wrinkling is that youthful women are generally viewed as more attractive by men" ..... To me Mary' face is nice, I consider as well the people living in nordic countries have less wrinkles than people in the south ... "the sun's rays penetrate the skin surface and physically destroy tissues of the skin, which leads to wrinking".

Once I heard that the next revolutions in the coming years are "Medecine and biology" ... and more and more humans are looking for comfort and perfection.

Oh is that right? Darn it, and I was so hoping that botox would do the trick! (not that I have much... yet... :) )

But the pictures I included in the post showed mary with wrinkles around her eyes, as well as a link to a pic of her creasing her forehead... so I still really don't buy the "Mary had botox" argument.

IMO the recent pics of Mary at the Heart Association thing showed a beautiful, but also a bit strained princess (probably because she was thinking about her mum), and you can clearly see that she does not have "perfect" skin (nice skin IMO, but not perfect... only fakes are perfect IMO).

Mary doesn't really have bad wrinkles. Some of it could be sun damage, but my guess is it is a lot of genes. I myself am 31 years old and have creases under my eyes and slight ones around my mouth and on my neck. It is genetic. I stay out of the sun religiously b/c I burn so easily. I always wear a hat. I suspect this is just normal ageing for Mary.
