there's a thread for the discussion of Mary's fluency/lack of fluency in Danish, and it's not this one. Don't get me all excited about a Mary-sighting, and then have it just be this old argument again.

The latest photos of CP Mary at home with her sister and Christian are lovely. It looks to me that Mary may be going to grow her hair again, which of course i prefer. It could also be that with all that has been happening she just hasn't had a haircut recently. Any way the photos are great, it is nice to see the royals in their own surroundings where they are more relaxed.

Looking good is easy when you have 27 servants who count among their duties, cooking, cleaning and looking after your children

While I no doubt that Mary and Frederik have domestic help, I don't think Mary is the type of woman to sit around on her duff all day while other people do everything. I'm sure she accepts help from time to time, but she strikes me as someone who enjoys cooking for her family or taking care of her own children or occasionally picking up the living room/family room. If I were her, I'd do it just to keep myself from becoming spoiled.

Sorry everyone, but I have to agree with Little Star.

To have servants do your housework is not being spoiled. It is simply another lifestyle. Do you consider anyone that does not have to forage for food and cook over a fire spoiled. Remember that the aristocrats and upper class live very differently from the rest of society - doing housework and all the child rearing is not considered a virtue.

Trust me, I've met so many who have servants and still look a mess all the time.
Maybe Princess Mary doesn't cook (or maybe she does) but I think she spend a lot of her time caring care of her son and daughter.

"how you look good" i dont find this a good thing to debate on imo especially not in this thread,besides what does this have to do with Mary's current events?

besides looking good doesnt come with having people running around for you, there are a few events where Mary hasnt looked good imo not only that but a few royals (not going to start comparing) have everything and still look badly put together from hair to outfits to shoes. People who work for you (servents, nannies etc)dont make you look good, you make yourself look good, some are naturally elegent and some arent.

For the cameras maybe? But you are right, she might be a very hands-on mom. It is nice to have a lot of extra help, however. She can't look like a mess, she is a princess.

When is Mary going to resume her official duties? After Lillepigen's christening, or before then?

Is this the place to note that Mary wore a beautiful watch when the family portrait was taken with the new princess? Is anyone keeping track of her jewelry? I like to think the watch was a "new mommy" gift.

You mean the gold Cartier Tank Francaise (price:#15,000)?

I noticed it too, although I'm not a fan of gold or Cartier, the style of the watch is classic and simple. (I'm a Breitling devotee. Love their designs and it's reliable).

I dont think it was new, if i recall ive seen it before & yes it is a beautiful watch

GT, I think cartier is very classic, there gold is beautiful, the Breitling is more modern twist to it also lots of details in them, theyre unique pieces.

Nothing has been announced except the chistening on July 1, 2007. I think her maternity leave is for up to 3 months, but i guess she could attend a event/function with the family or frederik if she wanted.

Princess Mary's watch is in 18K yellow gold. At Amazon, it's over $10,000.
Amazon.com: Cartier Tank Francaise Women Watch W50002N2: Sports & Outdoors: Cartier

I have seen the same watch at auction houses (Sotheby's and Christie's) and the starting bid is usually in the $4000 range. This range is from catalogues I purchased from Sotheby's and Christie's in 2006.

This Cartier Tank Francaise watch is just like what Diana, Princess of Wales received from her father.

This is not an event, but rather some interesting news. According to DRWs, Mary has received her own Coat of Arms (which is new) along with her father, John Donaldson.

The interesting piece now hangs in the chapel at Frederiksborg Palace.
