It is very hard to learn. Presently, I am learning Danish, and let me tell you, I have never been so frustrated in my life. That being said, after hearing Mary speak Danish recently she sure has come along way.

I could not agree more. When she's out in the public acting in her capacity as Crown Princess, Mary is dressed up out of respect for her role, which is very commendable. When she's photographed doing things with her family or friends in a non-official capacity, she's dressed in casual clothes like everyone else. I agree that she's not fashion-obsessed... I don't understand why people criticize her for this. Maxima is very dressed up in her official capacity too, but doesn't get the same kind of criticism. Neither of the princesses are fashion-obsessed, in my opinion, but only dressing up in their official capacities in order to show respect for their role, the royal family and the people they represent in their respective countries.

Just watched the two video clips:
And I am so impressed with her danish!! Admittedly, most times that ive heard her speak, ive cringed a bit. Her accent was always so thick and she always seemed to stuggle when she spoke. I was suprised that after so many years she didnt seem to be improving.
Alas! Today i didnt cringe! She was at ease and spoke wonderfully. It was just the first time ive seen her speak danish so natually and smoothly! Yes, theres an accent but who cares?
Anyway, cudos to Mary!!!

I too was very impressed with Mary's accent. (I didn't understand a word she said ) but she sounded Danish and she looked really happy.

Is her dress a dark purple? Well, that's besides the issue...
She looks so pretty and healthy. I always love to see her out and about!

I don't like Mary's outfit today. She is always so trendy, but the top she is wearing today is way too bulky and old-fashioned. Her hairdo is even worse, she looks very homely.
Hopefully, next time she will pick a better one!

Personally I think Mary looked wonderful today. Homely yes but very motherly and she reminds me of someone and it just wont come to me at the moment.

I like her outfit very much, also her hairstyle. Very pretty! I don't know why, but she reminds me of Snowwhite somehow, here.

This photo is not the most flattering, but I do like the coat.

Today's event went well apparently, and it's nice to see Mary continues to work hard.
