I think that when they have such opportunities to have such great vacations and lifestyle then it would be weird not to use these. Yes of course we can say that they should keep a low profit and so on but why? They have money, they have beautiful houses, they can choose great places where to spend holidays and they don┤t have to deny these things.

And talking about pictures - for me seems too that when journalists get much photos then everyone are happy and so on, but when there are few photos then journalists starts to blame...

But most important is that Fr&M are happy and enjoy their life, cause that is their life and their opportunities

Yeah, maybe it ┤s so cause she don ┤t have usual strong makeup and she seems to be little suntanned too But she don ┤t look ugly or something like that, just as common people

There are? Could you name them please and tell me how much (or little) they spend?
i'm not going to go into this, a mod just mentioned that the thread shouldn't become a comparison thread. however, a very recent example comes to my mind without thinking too much. i'd be glad to discuss it by PM if you are interested.

i think (and i guess so will many members of this forum) that hugo boss and other danish brands mary uses definitely qualify as high-end clothing. correct me if i'm wrong.

High-end??? The Danish designers, comparable to Hugo Boss ... hmmmm. I'm not sure.
But then, aren't e.g. queen Margrethe's tailormade clothes 'high-end'? And what else do we expect royals to dress in..... mainly H&M?? Perhaps it is only Mary who should dress below general expectations for royals - to avoid comments of fancy dressing.

You make most credible point, UserDane.

The Spanish royals are known clients of one of the finnest fabric suppliers in Spain, if not Europe. These fabrics are exquisite and could be considered nothing short of 'high end'.

Mary, Fred and kids were spotted at the train station of Cannes on the 7th of july. They took the train to go somewhere in France (certainly in Cayx).

Crown princesses watchers: Vacances estivales de Frederik et Mary- A Cannes

It's great to see them acting like ordinary people: take the train and take care of the luggage! by the way they have a lot of luggage! they seem to have planned to be away from home for quite a long time!
On those pics we can see a complete normal family on vacations! so I guess all the posts before on their expensive holidays can me minimize with those pics!

Why do you think that the monarchy her in Denmark vill be abolished ?
Frederik and Mary will also own a cuttage in the woods in north juttland and as you say Marselisborg in Aarhus...Frederik and Mary will be abel to juse alot of carstels her in Denmark when they are king and queen..just like Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik does.

About the monarchy in Denmark being abolished - I think Ricarda is only teasing

But she is right about the ownership of the castles. Only Marselisborg is owned by The Royal Family the rest are state property.

But you are right - in the future F&M will have the right to use all of the castles M&H are using today.

(The Royal Yacht Dannebrog is, as far as I know, also owned by The Royal Family just like the chatoux in France).

okay. so i seem to be the only one who considers hugo boss and prada high-end... as far as i know, hugo boss, prada, alberta ferreti, etc... all have their catwalks at london or paris fashion weeks. now, if that's not deemed 'above average', i'm open to suggestions on what it is...

danish designers such as marlene birger are being sold (at least in the city i live) alongside with brands that 90% of the people would consider high-end and in a store that prides itself on being quite exquisite in the brands they choose (not exquisite because of uniqueness, but because of internationally known designers).
