There are lots of weirdos out there, fake facebook profiles, tumblr, if Mary's family bother to file charges they will but that's a private matter unless there are fake profiles of Mary, Fred etc involved.

I can see that. But if the Danish royal family's new way is to 'go out and comment on stories they find far over the limit' - this must be one of them as this is all fake.

Do you know what I think? These fake profiles were created while it was publicly made the Australian love story of F&M would be made. No activity on the profiles since then. Now 'someone' suddenly find them after a year and brings this false story one month before the Australian movie has premiere. This is a tacky and bad advertisement for Ch 10 tele movie about F&M's love story.

ADDED:
The picture of the fake brother 'John' is also fake. It isn't John, but another man.

Funny enough...

https://www.facebook.com/john.donaldson.779205?fref=ts

The fake profile of "John Donaldson" which New Idea has used has now been deleted from Facebook. Mary's real father's real Facebook profile is still there.

How can journalists make this kinds of stories? They know it will be discovered.

Let's hope the Danish media not just copy paste this..

ADDED:
Now the fake profil of "Mary's brother John Donaldson" which New Idea/DM used has been deleted from Facebook too...
https://www.facebook.com/john.donaldson.779205?fref=ts

Mary's real brother's real Facebook profile are of course still there.

I saw the DailyMail story yesterday night, and immediately went to facebook to look lol.
They jumped out as fake profiles right away. Sadly now, anyone can create a fake profile, all you need is a few pictures or to know some basic information, and people will believe its real. (I had this done to a cousin of mine, someone created a fake profile in their name, the picture is of the person, but what they post is really out there and she is trying to get it deleted)

The Dates didnt match up, as they were in Rome, August 5-6, 2014. Mary and Frederik with family were on an official trip to Greenland from August 1-9 2014. Surely her father would not ask if "Mary" was invited knowing that Mary was in Greenland.

When the profiles were still "live"
Plus, I clicked on another post from "john" and found a "Madeline O'Neil" commenting on his post about Eurovision . This Madeline had the official picture of princess Madeline but nothing since 2014. It looked more than fake

This is really sad and scary

I've had a look at the Danish papers, who these days copy paste big time from Daily Mail, so they should be aware of this story by now.

None seems to have picked it up, probably because they have done just a little checking and concluded, just like us, that this most likely is a fake Facebook account.

- Annoying because some will inevitable believe this garbage.
And it is peculiar, methinks, that the new film about M&F's relationship, which otherwise no one bother commenting on, is featured so prominently in this article.

great, maybe some in the Danish media have some sense.

Just a little bit of research showed that these were fake, especially with the Madeline O'Neil part lol
Plus that dates not matching up.

Im glad the profiles were deleted, huge violation for the Donaldsons, who I believe have been very discreet in all these years

It seems so.

I'm pretty busy these days, so I could have missed something, but as far as I am aware the Danish press has not mentioned the Daily Mail story at all.
And by now they should be fully aware of it.
So it seems like they too have concluded that this is at best a hoax.

The story has now hit the Danish papers, but it is being denied firmly by the court:
Kongehuset raser: Kronprinsesse Mary udstillet af verdens største avis - Royale | www.bt.dk

BT summarize the story and here is what Lene Balleby from the PR office says: "We notice that it is a case of obvious identity-theft. It is unfortunately way too easy to create fake profiles and in the case it is the brother's identity that has been misused".

Vi konstaterer, at der er tale om et åbenlyst misbrug. Det er desværre alt for nemt at lave falske profilsider, og i det her tilfælde er det brorens identitet, der er blevet misbrugt,«

BT has a follow up on the story: Mary udstillet på nettet: Derfor reagerer Kongehuset så kraftigt - Kendte | www.bt.dk

They have (as usual) asked the DRF expert, Lars Hovbakke Sørensen, to comment and believe the DRF felt compelled to comment on this story, because it is so easy to set up false profiles on various social media like Facebook and because it as a consequence of that is easy to spread false rumors worldwide and very fast.

There have always been rumors and gossip about the royals and they have refrained from commenting on those, but in regards to the wildest there is a need for the royals to go out and deny.

BT continue with the story: Se billedet, der fik Kongehuset til at rase: Sådan blev Marys falske 'familie' afsløret - Royale | www.bt.dk

The photo, supposed to be of Mary's brother is not him, and while it was indeed taken in Italy it was not in Rome, but Milan, in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele that has a very distinct tiling on the floor.

Good.

It's extremely infringing and disrespectful journalism to create fake profiles to invent "a story".

I'm sorry for Mary's family which names have been abused. Also for Mary. She's a fantastic hard working top representative of the DRF and doesn't deserve this.

But yes, I fear it's the future of today's young King and Queen and heir-to-the-throne couple in a world where journalists are doing everything for invent a story. If there are royals where there isn't any 'drama' to write about? They just invent some...

Im glad the court denied it.
Its one thing for someone to create rumors but another, more serious offense, for someone to create fake profiles and steal the identities of her family members.

I had a feeling this was something strange. I mean, Mary's family has been quite reserved for 10+ years.

Mary blev misbrugt i løgnehistorie: Gør som os i Sverige, Margrethe! - Royale | www.bt.dk

As can be expected BT continues to milk this story.

Today with an editorial, where BT writes that it's fine that the DRF take a stand against the Facebook story about Mary, but why the reluctance to comment on other stories, like PH being ill during QMII's birthday celebrations? - (In other words expecting the DRF to be available 24/7 whenever the press, preferably BT choose to write about them, even if there has already been an official explanation from the court. We can debate that explanation endlessly, but it was an explanation, so quit whining BT!)

However, the article pasted here is about what the SRF has done in recent years. And the Swedish press office explains how well that has worked and encourage the DRF to adopt the same policy.
Each time the press write something wrong or speculate too much, the SRF PR-office phone the editor-in-chief of that media.
That according to the PR-office has worked.
(I don't know enough of that subject to have an opinion. So what do you think? Has it worked?)

BT also asked the editor of Her & Nu (you know, the boobgate story), he doesn't say anything apart from still trying to leave some doubt as to whether the DRF is telling the truth - because surely Her & Nu wouldn't make up a story or get their facts wrong, perish the thought!

The current editor for Se & Hør is fine with the DRF going out and denying fabrications and lies - even though he believe the PR-office will be very busy calling the Australian publications!
He also thinks the DRF should come up with a more convincing explanation for PH's absence at QMII's birthday. (I would not dream about suggesting that BT asked a leading question on that particular topic... Such an idea would never cross my mind).

Bt has been trying to contact Daily Mail for a comment on their article, so far without any luck.

And on another note: Daily Mail has modified their original article about Mary and the fake Facebook profile: Danish royal family deny claims that Crown Princess Mary is feuding with her Australian family following alleged Facebook posts about 'she who shall not be named' | Daily Mail Online

BT has a screen dumb of the two articles, Daily Mail has not responded to BT: http://www.bt.dk/royale/avis-traekke...ilbage-naesten

Dansk Rugby Union ‏@RugbyDenmark HRH Crown Prince Frederik & HRH Crown Princess Mary with DRU President @JensSkare at Twickenham for #RWC2015 final.

I didn't even know that the Danes are a rugby nation!! Well, the Aussies lost to the All Blacks, Mary didn't work as a lucky charm.

Thanks DOM,

A delightful picture!
This was yesterday evening (31 October) So that's why F&M were not in Tivoli with the children. Always great for a couple to have a day together with twosomeness.

From the Danish Rugby Union:

"Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess had a fantastic night for the final at Twickenham and has given us permission to share this photo with wishes for all the best for the development of Danish rugby! - With Jens Aage Skare Nielsen to Twickenham Rugby Union Stadium."

Hope this Christimas news is correct

Her&Nu writes that Frederik, Mary and all four children in most of December month will be traveling home to Tasmania to Mary's family. Here they will celebrate Christmas and Mary's sister Jane's 50th birthday (she has birthday on 26th December).

The DRF's communications chef Lene Balleby said: "We can't comment about that yet."

I hope it's correct. It could be nice, especially for Mary to celebrate Christmas with her family this and for the children to try an Australian Christmas. We know last year F&M had planned to hold a large Donaldson Christmas in Copenhagen, but had to cancel because of the large royal family Christmas at Fredensbrog, so I think there could be something about it

If, we will soon hear more.

About time, I would say. If it's true. It must be, what?, 15 years since she's spent Christmas with most of her family.
