He prints it and then back tracks. Sounds suspicious to me.

Of course it sounds suspicous: you hate Mary. And any negative story about her will do, wether it's true or not.

In general, you can't always believe what the paper say whether it's something positive or negative about Mary. Sometimes they exagerate too much.

Don't hate her. Find her very boring. And if the Danes think she is something exciting in their lives, well then it says alot about them. In Australia, if she was living off the taxpayer like she was with Freddy she'd be called a bludger. But then Australian are more careful who cheats off them.

And you must admit there was a big backflip after that interview with the Uncle!

Honestly at first I didn't like Mary all that much... for several reasons, one being here "catch a prince marathon"...but, the thing I have still a hard time dealing with is that in 90% of her photos - she seems to enjoy all the cameras and basicly is living up the life being engaged to Frederik. Sometimes I wonder if she is with him because she cares about him or for his title..... i.e. MC of Greece.... WOW they would make a great pair of friends, so much to talk about.... LOL!

I wonder :

Have you ever heard all the nice things the photographers shout to their "targets" to get them to smile and laugh ?

It is very human to react or or at least :)

The photogs have chased Mary for 2 years - she has never been anything but polite to them.

Despite she has not given them any info - they love the way she handles them.

This is something Mary is praised for - also by the Mary-bashers

O HO!! Because Danes are unwilling to slag off Mary (and because we all kow it's really the Danes' opinions that matter in all of this), then it's open season on Danes and Denmark????

Sad, very sad.

:order: :order: :order:

Let's refrain from attacking other nations and their people, as well as Mary.

If there is a reason one does not like Mary, let's be constructive in our comments regarding her, and in my books calling her a cheat is not constructive.

What I find remarkable about Mary is that for better or worse, she is the opposite of boring. Other than that I haven't formed an opinion since I don't know enough except to say that there is something about her that is more interesting than all of the other crown princesses or crown princesses to be. Maybe that's good, or maybe it could be bad, but Mary shows hidden depths and complexity.

And I don't think there is a lot of disagreement because look at the sustained bandwidth in forum typing she inspires compared to the others. B)

I really think she should smile more. She can be actually quite lovely when she smiles. Otherwise, she can LOOK snobbish. Smiling may make her more endearing...

But so many different opinions... "she likes the camera so much and loves attention" or "she doesn't feel comfortable in front of the camera, she can't handle pressure" etc...... arrrghhh!!!

Just to add to the confusion :P , I think she looks lovely when she smiles. Sometimes she does have a strained look on her face. Like some of the Swedish embassy pics (I think it was that one). But the hunting party ones were pretty casuaL and she looked quite pretty.

She's not model pretty. She looks sweet-pretty. Like that previous photo where she looked exactly the way she did in her primary school photo (i'm hopeless at pasting pics, so hopefully you know the one I mean).

IMO, Mary looks so much better in side view than in front view. (don't know- maybe its because of her nose that's so nicely pointed upwards)

Princesses like Maxima and Mette I find interesting and colourful. I am allowed an opinion.

Mary should have opted for a younger style, hair down like she appeared at the Christening recently. She looks old with her hair up.

i disagree. i think this is much more flattering for her face that the flat forhead with long hair. i think this hairstyle frame her face much better and is still young. her face is too much accentuated on ts lower half when she wears open hair is pulled back on the top. its different when she actually leaves it completely lose like when she is in private.

Mary looks great at this event! Everything about her is radiating on this day. There are a couple of pictures in which her smile seems to be frozen on, but in the others she looks really great and truly happy.

And the dark colour with her dark hair and fair complexion looks really nice. The jacket seems not suitable with the jacket (too casual), but the skirt is a beautiful colour.

Mary look great but the same can't be said for her choice of outfit. I think the jacket and skirt are a poor choice for the occassion considering what the other royals are wearing...just look at Alexandra and Queen M. Also the men are in tux!

Just a thought..now that Mary is almost in the family fold, does she get a allowance for clothes? If she does, i'm sure she can do better than her choices so far, although this may also be her preference or taste in fashion.

The more I see Mary it's obvious that we can't compare her with Alexandra. They are two different type of people with very different tastes in fashion and mannerism.
