General News about Crownprince Frederik and his family - this week in Germany:
Almost every (rainbow) newspaper wrote, that Crownprincess Mary looked very sad in the last time. That she had glassy eyes and a forced smile...

They show pictures of the Julemærkefonden and where Crownprincess Mary has worn the red jacket...
I agree in just one point: Her eyes looked glassy!

Considering the fact that the german tabloids are bad beyond believe even not every german tabloid wrote about CP Marys unhappiness the last week. As a german myself I would be tremendously ashamed to mention the rubbish that is printed by this tabloids. It's remarkable that there are people willed to waste money for this trash. The sad thing is that there are still people who are silly enough to believe the garbage offered by this tabloids, even one should think life has teached people otherwise. Besides I myself haven't seen a glassy eyed crown princess.

And next week and the week after that, it will be another CP or celebrity the tabloids are "exposing" as looking sad, depressed, skinny, overweight or what ever they think can make money. They only need to finde a failed foto from somewhere - and woops - they have got the basis for yet another story whitout substance.

It is my job to read all the newspapers. I never said, that I believe the things, you can read in the rainbow-press. But I understand this thread in this way: It is a place to report, what you can read (now, today, this week) in the newspapers - independent of truth or lie. Just to show the opinion, you can find just now.

I am smart enough to know the differences between the different newspapers and between a good, a bad and a wrong story.

But - as I said before (even in the thread about the Julemærkefonden) - I agree: Crownprincess Mary looks ill. Like having a cold or fever. But - as I said before - I only see the pictures, presented by the Crownprincess Mary fans in the thread. I didn't saw her acting and I didn't saw the pictures between these (fan-)pictures.

But back to the General News about Crownprince Frederik, etc.:
I will try to summarize the articles I read in the last week:
It is still about the Trine Villmann book. But in the first time after the book's release, it was about the book and the content of the book.
Now it is about the situation after the releasing-date.
And the newspapers take a look at Crownprince Frederik and his wife and they describe what they think, what they see, what they hope to see, ... (all in combination with the conten of the book).

Some quotations:
"She was Frederik's second choice"
"Crownprincess Mary is all alone"
"Last week - tears in her eyes"

I remembered these same tabloids changed the colour of CPss Mary's eyes and dress on its front cover page and also placed a wrong photo of baby Christian on its front cover two years ago.

Perhaps the DRF should follow the actions taken by the Swedish Royal Family and Princess Caroline of Monaco against these German tabloids.

Princess Caroline of Monaco won her case against German tabloids at the European Court of Human Rights.

One of Frederik's former girlfriends, Malou Aamund, may have won a seat at the parliament after the general election in Denmark today. Malou Aamund (Malou Aamund stiller op for Ny Alliance - Politiken.dk) represents the newly formed party Ny Alliance.
Malou Aamund is senior sales manager with IBM Denmark, married and has three daughters.

Ny Alliance is a liberal party that was formed in May this year by two members who left the Radical party, Naser Khader and Anders Samuelsen, and one from the conservative party, Gitte Seeberg.

Naser Khader (Ny Alliance - Naser Khader), (Naser Khader > Forsiden) has a very high profile in Denmark, not least after his way of dealing with the socalled Mohammad crisis two years ago and he is rather popular.

And Malou Aamund has apparently secured her parliamentary seat....

I think it is absolutely necessary that the Crown Princess and future Queen Consort be able to speak the language of the country. How else is she suppose to communicate effectively while performing her royal duties or even her basic activities of daily living.

Now if you want to find out how Mary is doing language-wise, you should read this thread (Mary's accent). However, I must warn you to read it with a grain of salt.

Well, to speak the language is important indeed, but I don´t mind an accent. In The Netherlands we had Prince Bernhard who had a very strong German accent, he never was able to speak Dutch perfectly, neither was Prince Claus and even Maxima has an obvious accent. To me that is perfectly fine, it even adds some charm, as long as they are able tohold proper conversations, keep the words in sentenses int he right order etc. I suppose Mary is able to do that too by now but I think it is very tricky to lose an accent (and as I said, IMO not necessairy).

A select group of people have unfairly criticized Mary's accent, and her supposed lack of grasp of the language.

Believe me, learning Danish is incredibly difficult. Furthermore, I highly doubt that she will lose her accent completely. Example: Henrik. You can still hear a bit of a French accent when he speaks Danish.

You could even detect a faint accent in the Danish spoken by the late queen Ingrid who spent so many years in Denmark - and was brought up with a 'brother tongue' from just a few kilometres across the sound.
