I like Mary well enough but labeling her the "most perfect princess" does her more of a disservice than it does compliment her. She has evolved into her role very nicely and since the Danes seem to approve, I see no reason why I shouldn't. However these articles sugarcoat everything to a point where it's a little overwhelming. Mary has good and bad qualities about her - like every person.

I agree; could wish that newspapers and magazines around Europe were more discerning when they quote Hello's articles about royalty - Hello's articles really are too much most of the time; and even though I do think that Mary makes a great CPss for Denmark all that most beautiful/best CPss etc. stuff is way over the top.

But the pics were lovely - thanks Harmony.

The German newspaper Gala (which is not so bad...) wrote about the four Crownprincesses: Mary, Maximá, Mette-Marit and Letizia and gave them points:

* Mary: Königinnen-Faktor 2,4
* Máxima: Königinnen-Faktor 4,6
* Letizia: Königinnen-Faktor 3,8
* Mette-Marit: Königinnen-Faktor 4,4

(max-points: 5)

The newspaper wrote, that Crownprincess Mary doesn't have an own social profile.


(Translation (maybe): "One smile is a fake!" or "One smile is not real!")

You can read the whole german article here: Gala.de - Da naht die Konkurrenz - Topstory

AH!!! The article represents NOT my own opinion... But the article is a difference to the article, that Crownprincess Mary is the "best" Princess...

Lol it certainly is - it must be Mary week at the German tabloids ' Es war einmal eine glückliche Prinzessin' and 'Gold Marie' -

They are funny; next week Maxima will refuse food because she has not yet had a son (or perhaps had yet another row with Mabel??); Mette-Marit will be sulking because Marius has not been given a title or Letizia will be refusing to speak to the Spanish king until Leonor has been proclamied the throne-follower. I actually applaud the imaginative powers of some of these magazines

It is funny, that they wrote about the fact, that Crownprincess Mary doesn't have an own social profile and one week later she starts her own foundation.

Actually, the Mary Foundation was announced on Tuesday, 11 September.
Gala was released 1 or 2 days later. But I guess the article was already written.

I think this article is filled with double standards and misinformations.

Mette-Marit receives representatives from her many various patronages, one couldn't do more.
And Mary has no clear social profile because of her many various patronages?

And again and again this nonsense about Mary starting to show social commitment because she was criticized and to change her image. As a matter of fact Mary started her social engagement in her first year of marriage, her first patronages were announced in December 2004 and she started to work with them right away. And before that she had visited nursing homes, a home for blind people and the catastrophy area Seest.

Also, where does this nonsense come from that Marie is "adored" in DK while Mary has lost her popularity?

At the same time BT writes about Hello writing Mary is the most perfect princess in the world which Hello actually did not.
If I can read English correctly they wrote that she looked every inch a European princess at her last outings.

In both cases this is really such a mis-presentation of things, one can only shake one's head.

I agree. And that's why people gets irritated by her. Being pumped up by the media is the kiss of death.

An article about Frederik and Joachim. Read it with a grain of salt and with a sense of humor because, afterall, it's written by a journalist from Ekstra Bladet.

The title of the article is "Chill between Joachim & Frederik". The article mainly says that the two brothers have had minimal contact in the past three years, and that Frederik being a no-show at Joachim & Marie's engagement lunch was a sign that all is not right between the brothers.

As GT said however, take this article with a grain of salt

(I used a internet translator to translate the article, so if there are any mistakes, I apologise)

It most certainly doesn't refer to the 'Universe', just a pinprick portion of it, namely 'The World', - which is a hyperbole anyway - of mega proportions in this context.

Well:

Mary is the most perfect princess in the universe - for Denmark!
Maxima is the most perfect princess in the universe - for the Netherlands!
Latizia is the most perfect princess in the universe - for Spain!
And so on.........

I don't think there is anything wrong with the headline discribing Princess Mary. It simply has to be read in its right context. I don't think there is anything wrong when a newspaper make an exclamation of national pride in connection to a royal person. Thats done again an again when it coms to national soccerteams.

The headline was targeted on danish readers not readers from the rest of the world. Though I do admit for somone living in an other country than Denmark, the headline can be interpreted as Mary being a better princess than princesses of other nations. I am sure this wasen't the intension of the newspaper simply because it would be utterly redicolus to proclame Mary to be the best princes in the universe for Spain or for the Netherlands.

You missed the point I think! - I was alluding to the translation....but I'll give you 10 out of 10 for having a fertile imagination!

I happen to chance upon some aussie mags at the newstand this weekend and was appauled by the trash that was on the front cover and this danish author who's publishing a new book on the royal family!

Why the target on Mary and Fred? (I may be wrong here, as I don't read the other european mags..) but does Feliep & Letizia, William and Maxima, Hakkon and Mette Marit get this sort of attack?

Eliza, for further information about this book please click here. There is already a discussion about 1015 Kobenhaven in the Royal Library sub-forum. Some of your questions may be answered there.

According to Billed Bladet Mary will be taking over some of Queen Margrethe's duties in the upcoming months. The also note that Frederik will also do the same.

Again, take this latest "scoop" with a grain of salt.

Intresting article. QM has been out of the public eye for sometime, hardly see her anymore, maybe 2-4 events a month. I wonder how long will she stay as Queen in such a situation.Thanks GT for sharing
