Ekstra-Bladet must really be hurting for news. What a ridiculous story! Of course, I'm sure they neglected to discuss the fact that Joachim has stayed behind many times to act as regent while the other family members were attending events such as weddings.

And he and Alexandra attended the Wedding of Edward and Sophie.
Princess Benedikte is also acting as regent* from time to other! The brothers can be abroad at the same time as long as their aunt can take
over.

* For those who are interested:
There are two different Danish words for this function
CP Frederik is acting as regent (only used for the heir apparent!)
Prince Joachim and Princess Benedikte are acting as rigsforstander
- lit. principal of the realm (or kingdom).

Well, that's the lot of the spare, isn't it? Protocol often relegates the likes of Prince Joachim to the back seat!

But others in the same position like him have attended more Events. For Example Infanta Cristina, Princess Märtha Louise, Princess Astrid and Prince Laurent, Prince Constantijn, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine all attended the dutch, danish and spanish Crown Princely Weddings.

As far as I know it is only required in Denmark that one of them stays "behind", but in none the other monarchies.

Billed-Bladet has a story about Marie:

Billed-Bladet - Nu sparker babyen i Maries mave

It talks about how Marie can feel the baby kicking. She is experiencing some minor back pain, but she is very happy. It sounds like this interview was given during their recent ski trip to Switzerland.

In German newspapers it is said ( I don't speak German very well) that Mary and Marie don't like each other. I wonder: that's only media press (who's better and more liked) or they really don't like each other. Do you know sth about this?

They said the same thing about Mary and Alexandra. So it was only a matter of time before they started saying Mary and Marie dont like each other......i guess they must really need a story!

It's something that sells paper, whether true or not. Scandal and controversy always sell faster than rosy happiness. It's something to do with human nature. We always want to know that someone is having as difficult or worse a time than we are, or that those with everything don't actually have it as easy as we seem to think. Whatever the case may be, you can expect to see more of it in the coming months, as papers do what every other company is doing, and that is to do everything and anything that they can to boost their sales.

IMO, it seems like nothing more than speculation and a desire to sell more newspapers. I doubt that Mary and Marie are best friends, but they most likely don't hate each other either. Must be a slow day in the newsroom.

Princess Marie spend a few days alone in Geneve, in her old apartment after she and Prince Joachim and his two sons went home to Denmark after the skiing holiday in Villars-sur-Ollon. She enjoyed it, spend 3 hours in a beauty salon and Shopping. The last day she spend with her old friend Julie Mirabaud in her apartment, where Julie smoked a lot of cigarrets. Marie Trying on clothes

i can't believe the papparazzi managed to take so many pictures with her not noticing at all!
She has been a quick learner before when it comes to the media - she may be a bit naive and a very friendly person, thus she got used by the media in the beginning but she has managed to find her own way to deal with it. Thus, i tend to think these are the last pictures we get to see from such an occassion. Remember that happened to Catherine Middleton once, too? And it happened only once! I bet Marie simply wasn't aware that paparazzi could steep so low and will check out boutiques and the discretion she has in them in future before trying on new things.

It seems like Marie was able to ignore the paparazzi while she was trying on clothes. I don't think that I would be able to do the same, whether I was a public figure or not. It is nice to hear that she was able to catch up with her old friends.

Is Klovn a tv show where the participants play jokes on each other? I viewed a translated version of this article, but it wasn't entirely clear what the show was about.

Well, it's fiction, Based on "real" experiences in two danish comedians life. Joachim thinks it's a great show, and therefore, he sits on a couch with Frank, Casper, and his best friend Oscar, to commentate on several of the episodes in the shows sixth season. :-D

Oh, and here's a little clip, just a teaser for the shows sixth season. :-D
