I'm pretty sure its MTV Australia. You can only get it if you have foxtel. Most shows are American but they have a few Aussie shows.

I have Foxtel, and we get VHI and MTV, all seem to be American shows, but they do have Australian hosts on the TRL show, so maybe she hosted that and I just don't remember her.

Mary beats baby bulge
CROWN Princess Mary, dubbed "Princess on the Run", is living up to her nickname with a speedy return to public life -- and as this picture shows, a quick return to her pre-pregnancy figure......

Princess Mary book extract.

As the Crown Princess steps out for the first time since her baby boy was born, a new Australian biography Something About Mary by Emma Tom goes behind her image overhaul and exposes the battle she faced to fit into her new homeland.
It's in this weeks Woman's Day. but I didn't buy it, so if anyone has, I think we would love to read the extract.

Courtesy of Woman's Day.

here's a similar article.

it really annoys me when people say Mary was "fat" early on. she wasnt fat at all. i think she looked wonderful. personally i preferred her look then. her arms are so bony now.

If you've friend like that "Peter" who claims that his "friend" Mary was "boring but did exactly what you told it to do", you don't need enemies.
Sounds like jealousy to me.

Or someone who was rejected. I'm always a bit wary of anonymous sources - because it's so easy for a) magazines to make up, or b) people to feign having a better knowledge of people's lives than they do have.

I don't think she looked too bad in the before picture, but it's good enough to say it was an image she wanted to hide.

I think she looks great in the before pic. I think she's prettier there. she has such a sweet face when she has a little more weight.

but the change is pretty dramatic so I guess that will drum up some attention.

This(to the left) is not the picture. This is a picture from the course Mary took in Sydney. The pictures from the course was sold to the Australian/Danish media in 2002 by the the teacher of the course Teresa Page.

But, the picture that she ripped up and the photographer sold to some tabloid? couldn't have been any worse than that one.

"Peter" was possible not a real friend, but just another person in the class or from the same school year or just school. It's is the author who claims him a friend. Possible because the book needed to look like it has some close sources to give it more substance. I have read in another article that niether Mary's friends or family wanted to participate in the making of book. So maybe the author was desperate:) "Peter" was from her school years and that may be 15 to 20 years ago. In the Danish book "Mary, Crownprincess of Denmark" the authors interviewed a person from the same school year(9 and 10) with a name:) Dan Jensen and he said that she was intelligent, had a lot of energy and was among the more popular people in her year.

I would'nt have stood beside Sara Murdoch in the first place, she is a beautiful woman and tall!


I have to say I do think Mary is better looking now, but that is down to having a make-up artist, hairdresser, good clothes and being in Love. I can't say it is because she lost weight.

Mary's public life would have been harder if she was a size 14, you know what the press is like, one pound over you are fat and one under you are anorexic.

One thing I take heart from is Frederik, a man who could have had any woman, did not judge Mary for not being a stick insect or for not wearing the best clothes . I think it speaks volumes for the type of man Frederik is when he went for personality over model perfect looks.

Yeah, that's why I said she couldn't have looked worse. Because she looked heavier but still good. She wouldn't have been heavier than that earlier on or even later in any other pictures.

Size 14 is not a fact. The author can't know what size Mary was. The size 14 is just for exxaggration and make the before/after story bigger in than it possible is. Mary was fuller than she is now, but not 14.

Btw the photo with Sarah was taken while Mary as a publicist(Mojo partners) was promoting a golf tournament on the Gold Coast in 1997, where Sarah O'hara was a guest at the event.

I don't think she looked like a size 14. And, you're right, authors complicate things.
Also, it's Sarah O'Hare, but now I'm going overboard!

I agree that some journalists will exaggerate to spice up their articles or books. On the other hand, I find it incredibly irritating when the Palace, royalists and fans exaggerate Mary´s goodness. She´s beautiful, she´s intelligent, she couldn´t be size 14 (why not?)...etc etc.
She was just an ordinary Australian, so there´s no need to paint her to be some Goddess. Good for her that Fred fell in love with her, but that doesn´t mean she´s perfect. No one is. So ardent fans need not be so defensive when certain things are found out about her that doesn´t match the image that is being spinned.
