You only have to look at everyones faces in that pic posted by LadyFinn and one would realise that they all have the same expression in that pic. Judging from that, it is safe to assume that they were in chilly weather or something of the like.......All their faces were like that andtTo think otherwise and just single Mary out is suspicious.

I must say, caroline heering is a most ravishing woman, on the Crown princess certainly likes attractive woman next to her.

Caroline is a friend, and as such became an employee of the Crown Princely household. I think her attractiveness, however, has little to do with being Mary's Hofdame.

She is a pretty lady though, yes.

Love the bride's dress...very simple, modest while being unique and fashionable...the high boat neckline, the silver grey cumberbund and the tricky short sleeve with sheer underneath to a three-quarter length...some might say it is too tricky but i think it is refreshing in this time of ubiquitious strapless gowns...very nice!!!

Wow Tanja looks gorgeous! She is easily the best dressed woman at the wedding. Caroline's dress would've looked much nicer if not for the dangling string and cut out in the chest area.

Post Translation?

According to the journalist, they have a sporadic, cold/chilly, distant relationship, and apparently they don't have much contact. Or something along those lines.

Click here to view.

Finally, this magazine ran a story regarding Mary and Alexandra. According to the writer, they don't get along because Alexandra flirted with Frederik. Oh brother...
Because many people here, don't speak or read Danish, it would be lovely to read an English translation for the article concerning the relationship between Mary and Alexandra.
Or, if not a full translation, then a 1-2 paragraph synopsis of its more important or relevant content, perhaps?

Thank you,

That's pretty much the jist of the articles (as I noted in the links several weeks ago), Abigail, and not much else. All it says is that Frederik is allegedly a flirt, Alexandra allegedly flirts with Frederik. The Danes allegedly love Alexandra and that they were impressed that she learned to speak Danish, Marie is a very cute girl, but she is allegedly incredibly naive and allegedly not really a good prinsess material. The author also claims that many of Joachim friends allegedly believe he has rushed into a new marriage, he should have taken the time. Allegedly Frederik does not want to cut contact with his ex-girlfriend; allegedly there has been tension in the marriage because Mary has been difficult to accept that Frederik still have contact with his former girlfriend.

So, yeah, that's it. All alleged claims by a Danish author.

Ahhhh, yes ... all this speculation, huh?

I can understand why anyone would not want to translate this in full ...
I mean, it all sounds too salacious, to me, don't you think?

I will tell you what is true, and that is that Danish is a very difficult language to learn. It's very gutteral, spoken at the back of the throat, and has many irregular verbs.
I gather that even native speakers find it hard to learn.
It is also not at all phonetic, so that words are not written how they sound and are spoken.

I will stand corrected here, though, if I am being too harsh.

Please call me Abbie.

Thanks!

Honestly, I'm really exhausted this evening and translating two long articles...meh...not right now. Sorry. However, as I said before, it's pretty much the jist of the articles. All of these claims come from that book, 1015 Copenhagen by Trine whatshername.

Sounds like an episode from All My Children if you ask me.

ROFL. I was quite the fan of AMC back in the days. Now, I think soap operas are a bit silly. Age, you see ... I actually correspond with Trine Villeman's husband and her. Both are nice to me. Her husband will let me know when Trine's book will be out in English and where it can be ordered so that I can pass it along to the Folks, here.
Or, Trine and her husband may do that themselves.
Thanks so much for your translation.
I hadn't realised from where the Danish blurb came!

Just noticed on the BBC text feed of Wimbledon that they have mentioned that Fred and Mary are in the royal box today (along with Cliff Richard)! I haven't spotted them yet although I'm not really paying attention - oops.
