I read W&K are hoping for a March date..which would only put Mary 3 months after the birth of twins. They might try to attend, but depending on how the birth goes...it would be tough.
You are probably right.

However, to some of us, perhaps in particular those of us living in countries with our own royal families, the marriage and events in the BRF may not be that big a thing.

You've got it right. Frederik and Mary stopped in Nebraska about a year ago to visit Dana College (actually not far from where I live) and people didn't know who they were, but the local papers and tv stations had some very nice interviews with the couple. They went to New York and didn't even make the network news as happens with all Royalty except the BRF.

For royal watchers, both Mary's twins and William & Catherine's weddings are HUGE 2011 events. I'm excited for both, though I could imagine that the birth of the twins and the whole name thing etc. will move me even more than the british wedding. However, for the average person, the average journalist/photographer William and Kate's wedding is 20 times more important that the twins, simply because let's face it noone except danes, australians (that's about 25 million) and royal watchers know who Mary&Fred are.

But it's not a competition - it's two extremely happy events that will happen in 2011, that we can look SO MUCH forward to!

BTW, Do you think William&Kate has a clue that Mary is having twins? Let alone who Fred&Mary really are? I imagine Fred&Will must have met? Does anyone have information or pictures of this?

Of course William would know who the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark are. I think he'd have to be pretty dense not to know who's who of Europes royal houses. It would be appalling if he didn't...

William would have met Mary at his father's 60th Birthday at Buckingham Palace, back in '08'.

He will remember her since she was the woman with the goth outfit, very common in the UK

Hopefully Mary gets her outfit right next time she attends a big Windsor party.

You never were a fan were you...

She looked sensational!!...haha.

From a (my) professional view point, she couldn't have looked better, and to this day, it remains one of my favourite ensembles worn by the Crown Princess.

I was terribly dissapointed that there were no other notable photo's taken on this evening however.

A group shot would have been quite the portrait. One was probably taken, just not made public.

Well, I'd like to differentiate While I loved the look ABOVE the shoulders, I still shudder when I look DOWN the shoulders.

But back to topic. Unfortunately it was considered a private event what meant no pictures of the party or guests, probably for low-profile-reasons.
There were official shots though, but only of the core BRF walking into the reception room.

So her face and hair

I can appreciate that it wouldn 't have been to the liking of some (surely not many?.lol.), but for me it ticked all the right boxes. and some. I could have melted with envy when I saw the above photograph for the first time!! Superrrb.

But yes, her hair looked beautiful. It sat well and the style suits her.

Queen Elizabeth too looked lovely that particular night. The evening gown she wore is a particular favourite of mine as the cut, colour and fabric flatters her greatly.

Too bad about the photo's though. That would have been one impressive group shot.

Anywho, I think I've hijacked this thread long enough

It should be odd if he doesnt know the danish royal family as he actuually decent from them.
Furthermore our queens brother in law is Williams godfather.

There seems to be some upset about the fact that Will and Kate's wedding will steal limelight from the birth of the twins. Has it actually been announced yet that the wedding will be 2011. Perhaps it will be 2012, or maybe later???

I doubt any thunder was "stolen" from the royal twins. I see it as two families celebrating lives. The BRF will celebrate it with the marriage of Will & Kate while the DRF will celebrate with the addition of more children.

I wonder if Mary has met HM? Anyone know?

A look back on Fred & Mary's wedding from the Huffington Post.

Somehow I think Mary would be very, very happy if the W&K marriage overshadowed the birth of her babies! Then she and Frederik, Isabella and Christian, and possibly members of Mary's large and close Tasmanian/Scottish family would have more marvellous time together as a family, in private, doing family things .... free of the paparazzi ...

The new King Frederik VIII's Palace is ready for the royal couple: Monday morning Crown Prince Frederik could for the first time invite guests into his and the Crown Princess' new home, Frederik VIII's Palace at Amalienborg. (I hope Google translated it right?!)
