Princess Mary looks so self-confident in these last pictures. I think after her marriage she was a bit too worried if she was doing everything perfectly well done. That's a normal reaction from her, of course. But now, I think she is totally ready for her role! She seems to enjoy every minute of her job close to the people.
I love her last outfits!

I don't know if it is against the protocol... but I think it isn't. Even if it is, nobody would care I guess. The only problem would be if Mary was pregnant.

You bet it isn't against protocol If it was most of the royal houses could pack up a lot of their social events and just stay at home in their palaces

i would have thought it was a similar case as smoking, for example. both tobacco and alcohol are bad habits and legally accepted drugs, so i would have thought the same applies to drinking for royals.

Exactly!!! I think it would have looked too formal for such a festive, celebratory occasion as her firstborn's christening...also the flip skirt might have had more give in the waistband if Mary was feeling "fat", it was only three months after she gave birth (we all know she looked great but she may have FELT that way)...maybe she wasn't that comfortable or ready to be seen in that tight matching skirt...and trying to negotiate those steep slippery catherdal stairs on a windy winter's day holding a baby in a super tight skirt might not have been the best idea? And the skirt she wore to Christian's christening matched her silky floral hairpiece...

I think she made the right call on both counts...festive and vibrant for Christian and formal and restrained for her reception :)

I think it looked terrible bad if Mary wasn't drinking and maybe she was the first one to give the example! I think that was a fraternize new year's event so a bit less formal than others and she wanted to keep that way! Everyone is chating, talking and very relax.
She looks really lovely with that blue suti, it really suits her lovely!!

No, the two are not comparable - not in Denmark at least. There is now a ban against smoking in public places but as long as a royal person does not gulp down 5 glasses in quick succession - and I don't think any working royal would do that today - toasting your guests at a New Year's reception with a glass of something must be the correct way. Banning a glass of wine would be stretching the political correctness way too far I think.

On TV4 sweden today 20.00 they have a show on princes and princesses. Mary Elizabeth will be interviewed in New York by swedish journalist Linda Nyberg about her export value as well as her role as style icon.
Marie Chantal will also be interviewed in her home in London. Martha Louise makes an appearance as well as the two Swedish princesses.

The bottom link is working, Antonieta. Try it again. If it doesn't work, it may be your computer that is not accepting the program or it could be something else.

According to the interview that mary gave to the magazine yes and no, she said she has fear and distress after the death of her mother. the spanish tv gave the report about it.

I believe she travelled after her mother's death in order to get away from the everyday life and cope with her loss.

i'll have to put my two cents of critique, though. mary drinking what seems to be an alcoholic drink is a complete no-no from a protocol point of view. even if it isn't, it's extremely unwise to show herself holding a cocktail glass that looks like alcohol.
I don't have a problem with Mary drinking alcohol here, if she was to get drunk and make a fool of herself then I'd have a problem with it.

Mary's mother died due to complications from a heart condition. Her death was sudden b/c they thought she was getting better. Her mother died when Mary was in her twenties and an adult. She was sad and upset when her mother died, they were close. She helped Fred through the death of his grandmother Queen Ingrid. She was just greiving as a person would when they lose someone close to them.

Hm, okay, so what's new with Mary? According to the royal calender on her website, she doesn't have many appointments this month.

They often don't post all her visits until a week or two before she goes on them. And they don't post her private visits which we only know about if the patronage tells us on their webpages.
