Interesting..she has known him 2 years? How old is the young son...3 isn't he?

If this is an actual interview, why would she do this? I would think she would prefer to remain out of the public eye unless they are getting serious.

And this is totally off subject, so I apologize in advance. What is the this magazine fascination with Denmark & Norway's royals....don't they have German nobles they can discuss. Or was the German nobility outlawed after WWI or WWII? Does that sound right?

Billedbladet is actually a Danish magazine. So it stands to reason that they would be interested in the Danish royals.

Ysbel..that's what I think as well. But in all fairness. He is divorced and free to date who he wants and Princess Alexandra has moved on. Although, in my ideal world...they would get back together :)

I just think he would prefer his private life to remain exactly that...private.

In this article from B.T today, Prince Joachim explains he is very happy, and he confirms he has met someone and is very happy! He doesn't wan't to comment it further though.

It's very strange that a canditate for the prince Joachim's wife gives interview to a tabloid. What stanger, it all happens when PJ still has not revealed her indentity. What is the interview is made up? Didn't such things happen before?

Well, if indeed this Marie is legit, I think she should have known better than to give an interview...Its just not appropriate at this stage of their "relationship"...Nor are some, if not most, of the comments she made in the interview.

Its just quite bizzare.. her name is Marie (French for Mary), their birthdays (Mary & Marie) are a day apart, they look somewhat similar...its all a tad creepy..even the Danish media are commenting on the eerie likeness between the two..its really left many people freaked out.

Time shall tell what its really all about!

"MII"

I think if the relationship is that serious, Marie should've known where to put her place. An interview is a big step, and that just prove what kind a person she is... too eager into the spotlight...

Its not one interveiw she has also talked to BT

http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=...fid=100021711/
the experts thinks her talking to the press is agreed upon with Joachim and the court
http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=427864/

and to Ekstrabladet
EB: Are you in love
M: I love him very much but that I think is something private and something I want to tell him myself

EB Have you told him that you love him
M: No I have not said it yet, we dont talk like that yet

they met in a dinnerparty where everyone spoke english and danish and since Joachim and Marie both speak French they became friends two years ago and it developed to something more in the autumn

IMO, she looks older than her age on one of the picture.. But if Joachim is happy, we should be happy for him too! :)

She does indeed seem like a nice girl.

It's been commented in some Danish articles that for these interviews to take place, there has to have been some sort of approval from either Joachim or the Palace, and if not, it is highly irregular.

Though, Prince Joachim said himself in an interview during the winter vacation he had with Nikolai (summarized in one of my posts earlier in this thread), that he was protecting her identity for as long as it was possible, until she was ready. Maybe she's ready now? It would have been fairly easy for him to refuse her claims as he's surrounded by the press on his tour, if it hadn't been true.

Thanks norwegianne. I was thinking that the silence from the Court meant that they somehow approved of the interviews.

But it still seems strange. I think if Joachim wanted to make the relationship public, it would have been more gentlemanly for Joachim to come out with it rather than have the girl do an interview setting her up for some unwarranted criticism of being attention-getting, etc.

I hope its not a test to see how well she does in public, because if it is, its an unfair test.

I'm just wondering how did the Danish people react to this "interview" about Joachim's gf? can our Danish posters give some comment on that?!! also...did the court say anything abt the interview?

What a cute doggie she's holding in this picture:
http://ekstrabladet.dk/VisArtikel.iasp?PageID=340195

Anyways, I completely agree that giving interviews, or even talking to the media at all at this stage--if that's indeed what she did, do we know for sure? I mean, maybe she told all this to a friend who ratted to the press-- it is not something <I> would be doing if I were her.

I have the same sentiment actually towards Albert of Monaco's newest 'squeeze' ...she seemed to have chatted with Paris Match, about the very topic of her & Albert! Why would anyone in her shoes want to do that? I agree that it would, seeminlgy that is, diminish any chances for the relationship to move forward, no? Then again, perhaps it's all been orchestrated by clever PR honchos in the respective palaces. Who knows?

And as for this Marie resembling Mary...I agree, and it really seems like the brothers have a thing for petite brunettes who work in finance/business..
Funny how if you think about it, they both live in a country with an abundance of gorgeous blonds, if I may generalize about Danish women for a sec. And what do they do? They travel to the far corners of the world in search of brown-haired beauties!

Don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but I'll take my chances.

The Danish tabloid newspaper B.T has interviewed common people about Prince Joachims new girlfriend, and several comment on how much she looks like CP Mary. They have comments like her brown hair, deer eyes and a warm and winning smile are all similar to CP Mary.
