The photo of Fred and Nikolai embracing brings tears to my eyes. So, so beautiful.

Portrait of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. Now in Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen. (Katherine Scrivens Nielsen (Born in Bristol, England now living in Denmark.) is an artist who has worked with the theme 'feminine expressionism' for over 20 years.)

Horrible portrait, I guess the artist is no friend of the DRF. I don't see any 'feminine expressionism' here.

While I don't like the portrait itself I think the colours are lovely and very "Scandinavian".

If a likeness is intended, the artist didn't do very well
It's probably on the wall down in the basement or in the attic at Amalienborg....

I think I know which photo of Mary was used to paint it.

The portrait doesn't resemble Mary at all. If I didn't know it was Mary I wouldn't have recognised her. The Danes aren't well-served by their portrait painters IMO. They get paintings like this insipid portrayal of their Crown Princess or the Children of the Corn stuff in the portrait of the DRF of a few years ago.

I like it but IMO it does not look like Mary.

Oh dear. First the Kluge portrait of the family and now this. Maybe it's hanging next to the Kluge painting. The colors are nice, though.

But this portrait is not commissioned by Mary or the DRF, I think?!
The artist is "Katherine Scrivens Nielsen (Born in Bristol, England now living in Denmark.") and I would guess she sent it as a gift to Amalienborg.

More examples of her work...The Duchess of xxxx (?) Or is she a Princess? And Queen Margrethe.

Exactly. This is "just" a private artist who has found inspiration of pictures found in Billedbladet and painted a portrait of Crown Princess Mary, Queen Margrethe and Duchess Cathrine. And IIRC the paintings are years old now. I'm quite sure I have seen them before.

Her portrait of Queen Margrethe:

Her portrait of the Duchess Cathrine:

And a future event for the Crown prince family on November first

Kronprinsfamilien er til stede ved Hubertus Jagt i Dyrehaven kl. 9.40
"Crown Prince family is present at the Hubertus Hunt in the Deer Park at. 9.40"

Hopefully this means all 4 kids, I dont think the twins have attended yet.
And as far as I understand, this is not a hunt. Use to be but know its a horse competition

previous years

Is it the Crown Prince Family who will attend this year's Hurbertus hunt? Yeah

It's some years since last time. It will be Vincent and Josephine's first time to attend Hurbertus. I'm convinced they will add life and joy - I'm more than sure Josephine enthusiastically will make sure to receive all gifts and flowers from the riders if they bring such stuff - not to mention Vincent who will be perfect to cheer on the riders (who doesn't remember him shouting "run, run, run" for each and every single hundreds cows at 'The Eco Day' in May?


ADDED:
I just took a look at the updated royal calendar for the next 14 days. Some busy weeks for especially Mary.. (We posters will get a busy time to reach covering all the events in the threads the next 14 days)

I agree. Vincent and Josephine will be a delight to see. Im sure they will enjoy seeing the horses and riders jump through the lakes. And Christian and Isabella are already little pros in greeting the riders.

Yes busy weeks for both. Frederik is regent until the 27th and Mary has quite a number of public events lined up.

The family at the hunt will be nice as its one day before Frederik goes to South Africa with a Danish Business delegation and Mary goes to the Netherlands for a Women's conference

Crown Princess Mary family feud hinted at in Facebook post by John Donaldson | Daily Mail Online

A Daily Mail article with a somewhat unpleasant conclusion I'd say!

Weren't members of Mary's family actually seen here in DK very recently?

The DM copypaste from Australia New (No) Idea - what did you expect ;-)

1. It's the weakest foundation for a story I've seen so far from DM.
2. It's over one year old.
3. Mary's family has visited and lived home at F&M up to several weeks in a row during the last year, last time was less than one month ago.

If this discussion took place, who says the person discussed is Mary? Mary was on an official visit in Greenland on the day in question, and for another 3 days after that. She couldn't be in Rome. After the official visit, she had nothing on the official agenda for a week. She could have gone to Italy after that or her siblings could have visited Dk. I'm pretty sure, that they can travel to Dk without anyone noticing....Or they all met in France at their father's and Susan's. Lots of possibilities, if one doesn't jump to a conclusion right away...

I find it really hard to believe, that John Donaldson would write something like that about any of his daughters. Maybe he is referring to John's wife? "Didn't she go with you".

I am pretty sure that these profiles are fake and the whole 'story' is something the police should look into.

You are absolutely correct! I have just done a short research. And these profiles ARE fake. Where do todays journalists take their education? This is really mean did.

The fake profile of John in the DM article is this:
https://www.facebook.com/john.donaldson.779205

2 pictures with no likes or comments.
Zero friends.
He is married to a also fake Susan Donaldson profile.

Mary's real father has a real profile with real pictures, comments and friends. As has Susan and Mary's siblings. (As I have respect for privacy i wont post the real Facebook profiles here)

God, this is really mean and disrespectful did. Shame on those journalists...

ADDED:

See. This is a serious reason for the Danish Royal Court to go out and deny. This is identity misrepresentation! I certainly hope they do.

Thanks both of you
I can't see that the Danish Court has anything to do with this. Or? Isn't it more a case of if the two John's want to do something about it.
