I completely agree paloma, comparing two different princesses is just not unfair, it is also a waste of time, you could spend all day comparing things between people but what is the point at the end of the day?

Mary's busy schedule is just mind boggling. one can't help but notice that we aren't even seeing half as many photos of Letizia in action these days.

Letizia as well as the rest of the SRF are on vacation...whereas, Mary and the DRF were on vacation in July...when the vacation for the SRF is over, you will see a lot more of Letizia (with Felipe) working as hard as they had before! And I agree with past comments that Mary has had a lot more easier time adjusting to her role as Crown Princess of Denmark because the Danish monarcy is a lot more relaxed! She is doing a magnificent job! If I ever had to marry into a royal family, I would prefer Denmark's monarchy! They are a close family and the emphasis is placed on being a "family" more so than being "royal"!

The difference is that Letizia has not been turned loose on her own. We only see photos of her with Felipe. I personally think that she would be more than capable of appearing on her own.

I did'nt like Mary as I first "saw" her and I still do not like her . To me, she seems fake and I think that all that she's doing is because she is an attention-seeker . I'm sorry to say this, and I know that she has a lot of "fans", but I'm not even sure that she truly loves her husband . I'm sorry if my opinion is shocking to some people :) . I din't like Letizia either at the biginning but I've changed completely my mind and she's now one of my favourite princesses . She looks kind and nice . But ...no comparison between the two ... :)

What makes you think that Mary only does her public appearances because she likes being photographed?

Why do you belive that she may not even love Fred? Do you think that continuing a relationship with Fred after they met in Australia and marrying him was only because Mary wanted to have the attention given to her that a Crown Princess would certainly receive?

I am just wondering how you have drawn your conclusions.

When you think something, you do not necessarily have proofs for what you think . Sometimes it's just some impressions . And I readily admit that I can be wrong . But it's my impression about Mary and I can'y really say what's wrong with her to me . But just to give you an example : when I see a photo from her looking at Fred, I don't see any love in her eyes . Friendship, tenderness maybe, but not love . But, I admit it, it's only an impression . But, please, don't tell me you never have impressions about people .:)

I didn't say that I didn't have impressions about people. I asked you a few simple questions on how you came to your conclusion. I didn't ridicule you for it, so please do not so to me for asking a few questions.

If you are going to make statements along those lines, then you should expect for someone if not several people to ask questions. It's bound to happen.

However, I do form impressions about people, but the ones that you have formed about Mary seem to be extremely personal and your judgement really appears conclusive. Usually, I can only make these types of inferences from impressions that are based on face to face meetings and actually being in that person's presence for some time. But, that's just me.

Impressions are very difficult to make based on photographs alone. They are often difficult to make upon a direct meeting with someone, and I doubt you have ever seen Mary in person! Maybe Mary is the kind of woman who keeps her emotions more private, and there's nothing wrong with that. The media is certainly prying into every area of her life- I wouldn't blame her one bit if she wanted to keep the intimate relationship she has with her husband between just the two of them. If she really was an attention seeker, there would have been LOTS of leaks about their relationship to the media before there actually were. That obviously was not the case.

Myabe have another look at the photos in this forum for a second opinion.

Royal Couples loving looks and gestures

I think there's quite a bit of affection between them.

Do you really think that Frederick, who could have married any woman in the world, would have chosen a woman who he was not 100% certain loved him very much as well?

Royal News Denmark's Princess Mary's baby bump

August 25, 2005, 1:21:13 Denmark's Princess Mary showed off her baby bump recently on a visit to a museum in Copenhagen.

The 33-year-old looked radiant and in good health as she arrived at Thorvalsden Museum in Copenhagen, with her bump clearly visible under her summer dress.

Frederik has gone through, what, eight girlfriends? So I'm fairly sure he knew A True Thing when he saw it.

[QUOTE]"To me, she seems fake and I think that all that she's doing is because she is an attention-seeker " [QUOTE]

I'm just curious on why you think she is an attention-seeker or fake? Is it because she seems happy in her pictures? If she was an attention-seeker, wouldn't the Danes along with the Royal Family know. Since the Royal Family has been in the public eye for all their lives, wouldn't they know whether Mary is using them or not, whether Mary loves Fred or not and if she was using him for the attention? And if attention was her motive, I don't think the Queen would give her blessing. To say Mary is a fake, isnt in a sense you're dissing the Queen and Frederik's judgement. I hope I don't sound rude or mean but am just curious...
Have a nice day

How a person reads a picture is often based on her background and her culture. For a person from a «latin» background (latin here including people speaking French, Italian, Spanish, etc), Mary - who is not from a latin culture - may seem like a reserved and sometimes cold person, just because of the way she smiles or carry herself. If we compare smiling pictures of Mary, Stéphanie, Maxima, Letizia, etc... Mary would not be the only one giving us a «fresh» impression.

Now because we associate love with passion and heat, that might explain why some of us questioned her love for Fred.

That sentence is directly related to the previous paragraph of my post in which I explained why Mary could sometimes look as a cold person to some of us:o . I am not the only one having this feeling. If you read Anita's post you will see that she has similar impressions.

While I don't agree with your comments, I believe we are all entitled to our own opinions. I think it is hard to judge from pictures, and I don't know how you would know if you have never met them, but, again, you are entitled to your opinions and that's why we have freedom of speech.
