Four great new photos of Marie in Geneva from DRWs. They also made a correction about the ring Joachim recently gave her. According to their sources:

Quote:
The correct one is now above, designed by Nina Koppel in 18 carat red gold, yellow gold and white gold and white gold with diamonds...

Well this design is very nice and simple-I love the effect of blending two colors of metal together on a flat surface to make a pattern.

Okay, I know I'm way late on this and you guys have probably moved beyond this but Marie looks a lot like Princess Mary. OMG!!! I said it, I'm moving on. No personal attacks please; be kind to me.

Kerry, you are not the only person who has this opinion.
I still mix some pictures of Marie and Mary up even if Iīve seen many pictures of these two ladies, this happens especially when they are taken alone without Joachim or Frederik on the side.

Don't worry about the personal attacks kerry. I think Mary and Marie look alike too.

I personally feel Marie is very similar to Sarah, the Duchess of York, who is uninhibited and fun-loving and complements Prince Andrew in this respect. In the same way, Marie would deal well with Joachim, who is known as the Playboy Prince. But courtship is very different from marriage. I just hope she would be able to survive what royal marriage and duties entail. I have great sympapthy for the sufferings and misery of Diana, Princess of Wales and poor Crown Princess Misako of Japan.

How could Joachim possibly be known as the playboy prince when he goes from one long term relationship to another?

Before he met and became engaged to Alexandra, at the age of 25, he had dated the same woman for 5 years, from his late teens. He then was married for 9 years, it was Alexandra in the later part of the marriage who formed a 'friendship' with her current husband. Joachim was divorced a few months and then entered into another long term relationship with Marie. He's hardly got the track record of a playboy, he's always been the more serious type in contrast to his brother Frederik who did have a string of short term relationships. From models to pop singers.

He was dubbed by the magazines as such when they took pictures of him drinking and dancing and flirting with girls in nightclubs . The pictures were splashed all over the fron pages amid rumours of his marriage on the rock.

Yes, during the late stage of their marriage Joachim was portrayed as a playboy and Alexandra as a "busy bee" with no other things on her mind than her family and her work.
That was the reason why the media/public originally was so wholeheartedly on Alexandra's side when their divorce was announced and blamed Joachim to have ruined their marriage.

But after all that has happened in the last years the media and public perception of them both has quite changed.
I don't think there are still many people in Denmark who believe Joachim is a "playboy" or the only one to blame.
(This week's Her&Nu actually has an article about Alexandra being unfaithful during their marriage.)

The journalist notes that Joachim picked Marie up at the airport, and once he saw her he picked up her baggage and gave her a big "...kiss and went to his awaiting car."

The couple then went out to lunch whereupon "...Marie went displayed [looked] around the good-looking villa there northern Copenhagen..." They also wen for a walk with Joachim's two children, Nikolai and Felix.

To read more of this article and to see the latest photo of the couple please click here.
They went to lunch at Alexandra and Martin's, who live in the northern parts of town, and Marie was shown the house. Felix and Nikolai were spending the holidays we just had, with Alexandra, and apparently Daddy came visiting with his new girlfriend.

IMO Joachimīs person indeed wasnīt done justice in the time of the separation. To me it seemed, as if Alexandra had pushed her already great image even more around this time. Everyone, who has watched this documentary (that was done by the Jorgensen clan btw) to her 40th birthday, knows, what Iīm talking about.
Things could have been a coincidence though...but no matter, how things were...kuddos to Joachim for not getting provoked and keeping a good relationship to his Ex, and mother of his children.
What I have seen and heard of Marie so far, and what I know about Alexandra, Iīd say, they are completely different types...and I canīt imagine them as bosom buddies...but at least they seem to have found a good base for interacting with each other.
So much peace&understanding in the rotten state...now we just need pics of Marie, Mary and Alexandra shopping together like teenagers...and my mouth would stay open for at least 10 min

I will agree with the last posts. Joachim has never given the impresssion of a playboy. As far as we know,he always had long term relationships before his marriage and now with Marie. He was blamed for the divorce but I believe that the media was very harsh to him. In some way newsparers and magazines blame Alexandra now because she knew Martin during her marriage. Alexandra did pushed her image before the seperation for sure! In 2004 she made 3 trips abroad which got a huge media coverege plus the documentary for her birthday.
However all that matter is that they are now happy with other parterns and they have each other a good relationship

Actually, Joachim also got to know Marie when he and Alexandra were still married.

I think in their case ítīs hard to say (esp. as outsiders) who betrayed whom first. But itīs sure that their marriage must have been in problem before the "betrayls".

Personally I suppose their relationship was ok at least until Felixīs birth. It was a shock for me that 2 years later, they announced their separation.
Anyway, I am also happy to see both of them are happy now.

I agree that Alexandra and Marie are totally different types. Maybe Joachim has changed his taste when he got older.
One difference for example:
Alexandra: 5 years older than him.
Marie: 7 years younger than him.
Compared to her old photos, I have to admit that Alexandra has gained some more wrinkles in recent years.
Aging is the no. 1 enemy of women.

Just a little side note...that ring that Joachim gave Marie? Well, it was included in the In Style Weddings magazine. It's noted as one of several examples of contemporary 'engagment' rings very popular at the moment. Hmmm...didn't some spokes person for George Jenson say it wasn't typically used for engagment or wedding rings? Just thought it was an interesting find. Keep your eyes open royal watchers! LOL!

I certainly agree that Joachim got a rough treatment by the media in the time leading up to and just after the announcement of the separation.

A new book by someone called Bo Østlund is quoted at TV2's gossip section today - I have posted a link to it in this tread http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...tml#post619684 . Apparently the author claims that Alexandra was involved with Martin for years - and that Joachim knew about it.
