you are very funny! you said you don't want to compare but here you are comparing the Crown Couple of Denmark to the Princes of Asturias! Intrigues don't happen to Fred and Mary? hello? are you watching or perhaps reading the posts here? there are many intrigues and gossips about the Danish couple just like any other crown couple... or are you only limited to the news re the danish couple.. maybe bec they're your favorite. i can see that.. if you could just open your eyes there are so many gossip and intrigues re the danish crown couple....

We cannot see that for example with Letizia and Filipe, they only appear in public acts!!!To me this is really negative for them!
well, honey that would be bec they prefer going out of public related to their duties...i'm not saying that they don't actually go out other than their royal duties but hello we can see that F&L are not really those type of people.. How can you say that it is very negative of them not to entertain media when they are outside not doing anything related to their royal duties? why negative when some people think its good that you don't feed media lots of pictures concerning your daily whereabouts.

I'm arriving a bit late to the conversation, but I only just heard Mary's speech - and thanks to the person who posted the link, it was very interesting - and I wanted to say I think she still sounds like an Aussie, just a well-spoken one from a professional background. I didn't detect any unusual lilt.

What are you talking about ? Maybe you don't follow this couple very much, because you don't like them, but we almost never see pictures on them on vacation or outings, like we do with so many others, we see (almost) only their duties. btw, who the F doesn't prefer having some free time, instead of working. I'm sure "your" beautiful, hardworking principes of Asturais are just like anyone else on the planet! "not those type of people" - that's actually pretty insulting to them, I would say.

I don't really see what you are trying to say!Mary and Frederik let the press take some pictures of them when they are on vacations and to me that is not entertainment for the press, that is their job and a way to show to Danish peole who love them, that they are Ok, and that they are a normal FAMILY!!!Is good to see that they are a very normal couple, that they do so normal things, is good to see that Christian is growing, and IN MY OPINION, is really negative that FandL never go out of the palace unless they have royal duties, to me is negative that they rarely show Leonor!!But please this is just my opinion don't want to argue for this!

Don't bother comparing Fred and Mary, and Felipe and Letizia. They have so many coincidential similarities in their relationships, but we have to remember: they are two different couples with two separate personalities as couples. Even in their courtships, Felipe and Letizia were more private: very few people knew of their relationship prior to their engagement. Fred and Mary were known about for some time. F & L are just more homebodies, and prefer to keep their lives, outside from their duties, very quiet. You have to remember, that is a lot like his parents, who are not overly visible aside from their duties. Fred and Mary are different: she, in particular, is much more open and trusting. They are very active people, in a couple where the monarchy is very popular, and are willing to give a photographer a smile or two, if then they will back off.
It is just personality- all the CPs are different.

I know this is completely off track but could somebody tell me where to find the pictures when Mary's hat blew off - I think it was when they were engaged?

Thank You

LadyS, I'm 99.9% sure that the pics are in the "Not Very Pleasant Moments Experienced by Royals" thread, in Royal ChitChat,--actually in the first post in it, by Carlota. (if you haven't looked at it for a while, it really is a hilarious thread)

And can somebody please explain to me and everyone else...a question about her shoes..Is that a big, black heavy duty bandaid on her ankles (to stop blisters) or is that part of the shoe?

They are in this picture too:

I'm guessing it's a no-slip grip, to make shoes fit better. Often, when you are pregnant, especcially very pregnant, your feet swell and get wider. Sometimes you have to go up a size, but then they are a little loose. I expect that is Mary's problem, since she has those tapes on both heels. They do not look like bandaids, which I think would have been nude, anyways.

I think that for comfort while she is pregnant Mary probably wears stockings. Suspenders would be much less restricting than pantyhose and stockings always have the heel and toes as shown in the picture. Just a thought.

What a keen eye you have. It took me awhile to notice the black part that you were speaking of.

No, it doesn't appear to be. If you look carefully, you can see that this black strip people are talking about is of a different material than the shoe, and if you look at where the top of the shoe touches her skin, it's rolled over on the edge, and this strip extends above that. If it were part of the shoe, you wouldn't see that rolled edge.
