And don't forget that Marie's family is rich. Maybe her family would pay for part of the wedding.

On the subject: are dowries still paid by the bride's family in the case of a commoner marrying a prince? Does the bride's family still pay for the wedding?

Fashion Marie

This past weekend Prince Joachim's love, Marie Cavallier, attended a fashion show whilst in Copenhagen. Apparently she attended one of Malene Birger's shows in which Se og Hor noted that she "...has lots of energy to that sack together with the models." The author mentions Mary and Alexandra briefly, but nothing worth translating.

To read the article please click the link above.

Ekstra Bladet is also reporting about Marie attending the show on Friday, in which they note that she is a beautiful princess in training, "...Marie Cavallier that is to say gone actively going by princess - the preparations..."

Click the above link to read the article yourself. There are two photos: One of Marie and one of Mary at MB show in 2003.

To see the latest photos of beautiful Marie, from polfoto, watching the show, please click here.

To see the whole show By Malene Birger please click here. Look to your left; scroll down until you see the headline Malene Birger Fashion Show Friday August 10, 2007. Click the photo and the show will start. The video is at the bottom of the CFTV page.

Was this the same fashion show that the Crown Princess attended, or a different one?

Yep, they're getting engaged. Isn't this the same type of thing Mary did right before an engagement was announced? Marie looks GREAT in the new photos. Very poised.

It's hard to not see the parallels between the two women. Perhaps Joachim is courting her "Fred style" after seeing what a successful relationship they had.

You mean attending the Malene Birger fashion show in 2003 prior to the October 2003 announcement? Yup, pretty much.



Marie does look beautiful in those shots. I look forward to seeing more of her in the future.

This current fashion show was attended by Mary - Alexandra -Marie. Did any of the three attend on the same day, and if so did they acknowledge each other ?

I guess we're not the only ones to think so. Right after I wrote that comment I saw the article with the pic of Mary at the 2003 show. The question is, will she move to Denmark first (a la Mary) or will an engagement be announced and then a move?

She looks very nice, although she could've done without the clunky necklace.
The similarities between Mary and Marie keep increasing..

The three women attended different fashion shows (Mary - Baum und Pferdgarten, Alexandra - Pureheart, Marie - Malene Birger), but all part of the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair. I'm pretty sure they were all on different days too.

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...003-a-491.html Frederik and Mary current events Sept. 2002- Sept. 2003

Ok, I had a ton of free time, so I decided to do some digging. I looked in the first Frederik and Mary Donaldson thread from 2002. BTW, if you look, it's amazing how different TRF's were back then, a little bit more informal, less structure. But anyway, I noticed a ton of similarities between the type of things that Frederik and Mary were doing then, and the extreme talk of engagement, and what Joachim and Marie were doing now. You could basically just switch the names and have about the same articles. They were going to weddings and baptisms, and Mary was accomponying Frederik to different sporting events, etc. That's essentially what Marie is doing a lot of now. And if you look at the pictures, Marie and Mary dressed a lot similarly, less polished. And then, what do you know, a short time later an engagement was announced, then the marriage happened, then Prince Christian happened, then Princess Isabella happened... and I think we'll get a lot of the similar stuff about Joachim and Marie.

Billed Bladet is reporting this week that Marie has been shuttling back and forth between Geneva and Copenhagen for the past few weekends. Apparently, they believe this is a significant sign that the young French beauty is indeed being "...trained..." to be the next Princess of Denmark.To read the complete story yourself, please copy and paste the link to your browser: 15-08: Marie i prinsesselære ...

If Marie and Joachim were to marry, hypothetically speaking would she have to quit working? Other Royals I believe have attempted to carry on with their careers.

Yes, she would.

She would hence forth execute the responsibilities and duties of a Princess of Denmark. Just as Alexandra did and just as Mary does.

Then she'll fit right in with the family! I've seen pics of Joachim smoking and Margrethe is a well known smoker. I think only Mary doesn't smoke.

Yeah, you are quite right! Crown Princess Mary doesn't smoke and I am quite sure also that Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Henrik have quitted smoking now!

Yes, she does seem quite confident. She also seemed annoyed with the camera man lol.

That's a very interesting video Carlota, thank you for posting it.
I agree with you opinion of Marie - lively, confident and cheerful person indeed. And she already has one of the key points for a successful Princess - wonderful smile.
