Judging by those pictures, Mary seems to be getting use to the spotlight. Thank you, once again, for the pictures Fireweaver.

I agree with you, she does seem as though she is getting more used to the spotlight. I never really thought that Mary was all that pretty in older photos. Maybe it was just the tenseness in her body, but she seems much more relaxed, and much prettier. I must admit, she has really grown on me. I think I might actually like her. :o

i guess thats the most difficult part: normal standards of good education and behavious are no longer good enough, well not in any situation. she has to learn that she is not part of 'everyone'...

old picture, hadnt seen this before

Poor thing... she looked so happy clapping too :(

You know what, I don't see why Mary had to stop.

I mean, it's not like its the whole RF that is being "hurra-ed" by the people, and its not like its the whole RF that's having a birthday. So why shouldn't the other members of the RF not clap to celebrate QM's birthday??? Hmmmm???

If my brother has a bithday, and after we've shouted "hip hip horray", I clap.... ermm, ok I'm not royalty, but you know what I mean? It's not me that's being congratulated, so why shouldn't I clap?

:magic: This is one of the very best photos I have seen of Mary

so sweet and lovely ^_^

I do agree with those viewing Mary clapping together with the people on the palace court yard below, as the natural spontaneous thing to do :flower:

Being a not photogenic person, most pics of Mary don't and won't
show her at her best :stuart:

occasionally we have seen some good and in the future we will be seeing some ...... likewise occasionally

IMO

the tiara on the coin doesn't exist, neither does the coin. It certainly isn't the official coin. on that you see Frederik and Mary in profile.

DENMARK'S crown princess-to-be, Australian Mary Donaldson, was fitted
for a traditional Greenland-made dress today, but it wasn't the
wedding gown she'll wear May 14.

Instead, she met with a pair of Inuit seamstresses at Amalienborg
Palace in the capital to try on a handmade seal skin dress that
Donaldson will wear when she visits Greenland with Crown Prince
Frederik in June.
"The fitting went fine. There are a few tiny adjustments to be made,"
said Agnethe Davidsen, the mayor of Nuuk, Greenland's capital. "She
was very, very happy to have it."

Davidsen was in Copenhagen with Priscilla Josefsen, 76, and Maritha
Hammeken, 79, who led a team of 15 seamstresses that put the 24-part
dress together.

The garment is Nuuk's official wedding gift for the 32-year-old
Donaldson. The cost of the dress, which took two months to make,
wasn't disclosed.

The dress includes a red sweater with a multicoloured pearl yoke,
cuffs and a high collar made from seal fur.

The seal skin pants feature colourful patterns.

Rounding out the ensemble is a pair of leather thigh-high white
boots, or kamik.

"It was like she has always been wearing the national costume,"
Davidsen said. "She looked gorgeous."

Frederik's sister-in-law, Hong-Kong-born Princess Alexandra, the wife
of Prince Joachim, also received a traditional Greenland dress. The
dress is typically worn during celebrations.

Greenland is a semiautonomous Danish territory.

Members of the royal family visit the Arctic island annually.

Wow, I want to see pictures of that! :) And of Alexandra too!

here is an article froma swedish newspaper about mary's weightloss. they are comparing her to CP Victoria, as far as I can understand from the pictures alove, since i speak no swedish what so ever.

perhaps someone can tell us what their conclusion is?

anyway, i guess they have a point, mary is getting thinner and thinner...

But Mary does not look anorexic to me. She has lost weight in the nearly 2 years she has been in Denmark, but 2 years is a long time even to lose 10 or so kilos.

If she lost 10 kilos in 3 months that would be big problem, but the photos are many many months apart? Jenny Craig would think the time length was appropriate I am sure

I agree; despite Mary's very evident weight loss she does not look anorexic. However, if she does continue to lose more weight, she might appear that way, even if she is not. I hope she does not lose more weight however. I know that many brides lose weight in the run up to their wedding, but any more and Mary will be bare skin and bones. :(

I worry about her. Perhaps it is only a pre-wedding thing. But she used to be so healthy looking. I wish her good health.

I agree that it is somewhat of a pre-wedding thing, but I think it also has to do with realizing that you are in the public eye and now a public figure. Many people start to lose weight when they become public figures, royal or celebrity.

I am sure that Mary sees photographs of herself in magazines and certain places. If you are not a very confident person with a strong sense of self, you do start to feel that you need to lose weight, that you are fat, and even compare yourself to other women (in Mary's case most likely those in royal circles) and feel that you could be thinner and should be thinner. After her engagement announcement as well, Mary became "official" for lack of a better word, and she now has many things to learn and more obligations which can become a worry at times. When you are learning a new language, protocol, being introduced to people and making the rounds so to speak skipping meals or cutting them short is very common. Sometimes you may even forget to eat because of the stress of the situation.

Mary has been consistently losing weight since she came to Denmark, therefore I doubt that this is only a wedding thing but a combination of things.

I agree that she might be feeling self-conscious about her appearance. Even though it's not a healthy thing, I can't honestly say that I wouldn't feel the same way. It must be hard to be constantly scruntinized.

I also think that alot of the weight loss can be attributed to stress. I know I always start loosing weight rapidly when I am stressed. She has probably been under an immense amount of stress these past few months and that certainly can't help matters.
