I dont see why Mary wouldnt wanther around, maybe such events dont allow her to attened, Mary & Marie arent as close as we think OR she couldve been caught back at work, who knows?! it doesnt mean anything whether she did or didnt attened imo.

Mary said in her engagement interviews that they had long talks about the fact that a divorce was not a possiblity for them once they got married. I believe that at the time they approached the decision about an engagement, Joachim was already discussing divorce with his parents and brother - it is said that he waited till after Fred's wedding in order not to spoil it.

So it's my guess that Mary has commiserated with Joachim and has now every wish to see him happy again, as he is obvioulsy liked by Mary and she is so happy herself in her marriage. Thus Marie probably was received with open arms by the family including Mary.

I agree with you Jo of Palantine. Mary naturally wants to see Joachim happy, especially after the harsh time he was through, because the media blamed only him for the divorce. Now he defenetly seems happy with Marie, and I don't believe Mary has any problem with Marie at all. Moreover I agree that Marie was received with open arm by family , like Mary. Prince Henrik said in a recent interview that he finds Marie so sweet and he is pleased that they can speak French!

If an engagement were to be announced this year, I believe it would take place after the family gathering at Gråsten Palace. Perhaps sometime in mid-September or later.

Most likely I am way off, but if they are not engaged by that time, I do believe 2008 will be the year for the couple.

I don't think Marie not going to the christening wasn't a fact of Mary not liking her: it just wasn't in her place yet to attend it. I think that if they were engaged- secretly or official- Marie would have come, but I don't think that they're at that point yet. Besides, if she HAD come, there would have been all this gossip and speculation and attention on Marie and Joachim, and it would have taken all the attention off pretty Princess Isabella on her special day. And we may never know how Mary feels towards Marie, as what you see in public may be VERY different than what happens in private. Carina is pretty much a part of the royal family now, as she's been coming to events for ages.

And I also hate people comparing Marie to Alexandra and Mary. Of course, with ever new wedding, the bride will be compared to former wives, sisters-in-law, etc. It's wrong. Each woman is special in her own way. Princess X is no better than Princess Y or Princess Z, she is just different from them. The gossips just like cooking up these stories for media attention. Besides, if Joachim wanted an "Alexandra" he would have stayed married to her (and I honestly don't think he's looking for another Alexandra- or another painful divorce for himself and his little boys) and if he wanted a "Mary" he would have married her. Joachim wants a "Marie" and that is all that matters.

Well said, acdc1.
I just disagree with you on one point: I really think Joachim and Marie are secretly engaged... And I also think Marie didn´t attend Isabella´s christening because it´s not the tradition in the Royal family to admit a Prince´s companion at official events, when no announce of engagement has been made before.

While the Crown Prince couple are on holiday in Croatia, Joachim, the boys, and Marie are in Caix relaxing in the sun.

According to Se og Hor, Marie joined Joachim and the boys a couple of days after they arrived in Cahors and notes that the kids adore her (how the journalist knows this is beyond me.)

Click on the above link to read the article and to view four photos of Joachim and the kids at a farmer's market. Click here to see the cover of Se og Hor with a pap shot of Marie at Caix.

It's good that she's interacting with the boys as much as possible. If she is seriously dating their father, or even going to marry him, she needs to have a nice, if not great, relationship with the boys. Of course, she doesn't need to be saying "I'm you're new mom" which I don't think she is. I think they adore her so much (you can tell from pictures that they do) because she's not trying to be a new mom, she's trying to be their friend.

Lovely pictures, I hadn't seen them before...both look so very relaxed and happy.

I'm hoping for a beautiful (public) wedding for these two. This would be Marie's first and she should have the Royal Fuss. Does Marie have any sisters? I read she has four brothers.

It won't be too much of a Royal wedding with her dog walking with her down the isle.
I can't stand it when people like her treat their stinking dogs like children/people.
She takes this stupid dog every where. She even put the stupid thing in a back pack when they went skiing last year!!!
Go figure! IT'S A DOG!!!!

I don't know, but it would really be nice if she did have sisters! The only girl among four boys. I'm the only girl among two brothers, and it's hard enough for me!

Oh, btw, those were awesome pictures!

I also think that Marie is not the right person for Joachim, but not because she declared her love before him; she seems a nice person who deserves the best in this world. She is not the right because his thoughtless intentions, which served the ground of their their relationship, are extremely simple: it's easier to see another face in the darkness of the night and easier to call another name without anxiety to blunder out...The wrong step in the wrong direction...Yes, they like each other and feel quite comfy being together, but at the same time they attempt to deceive themsleves about the real reasons of this union...Anyway, future will put everything on its places...

Your post left me speechless for a moment. How come you know of his "thoughtless intentions"? How do you know that she is just a means to fill his inner loneliness? how come you know of the "real reasons of this union"? Where do you get your information from?

Obvious you don't like animals specialy dogs, like Marie does, if you like them you will see how mucht love we need and want to give to them, so I understand very well Marie! I also take my dog everywhere! I cannot understand why you cannot stand people who care for animals like Marie does!

I concur. I mean, how is all that seen from some pictures?

great pictures indeed, they do look superhappy - I say, if she makes Joachim smile like this, she's a keeper!

Why stinking?
Why stupid?
Do you have anything againts dogs or is it against Marie?.
I do take my dog with me whatever I can, you just don't have a dog to leave it behind 15 days or a month when you have all sort of possibilities to take it with you, that's why they are allow in airplanes, in certain hotels, etc, they maybe no persons but for those of ours who have dogs they are kind of childs, you have to take care of them almost with the same passion, they are not an object that you just go and buy to please your ego and then you leave in a corner and walk away because oh, you just happen to have a boyfriend so far away.

I do take my dog with me whatever I can, Marie's dog is not bothering anyone, is not bothering Joachim, is not bothering Marie, it shouldn't bother you that are not in the car.
