Princess Alexandra might even be kind enough to pass some of her patronages and honourary memberships off to CPM and retire to the farming life and become the "big fish in the small pond" in Tonder.
I doubt it. There will be plenty enough work for both of them.

In the recent interview in Costume, PA told, that she would like to use more of her experience with the business-life. Actually Prince Henrik did a lot of those jobs in the earlier days, and afterall the man just turned 70. I think, that he will be the one to give up some of his patronages....

Benedikte never really dealt with the danish business-life.

If she will give up some of her patronages, I don't know. Afterall she has only just turned 60. I think, she likes having the connection with Denmark, which the patronages gives her.

Is that an occasion to say good bye to some of the orgs. she represents or just a regular annual get together? I wonder when she said to get back to business life, is she going back to business for personal or public purpose? She has been absent from business life for so long that I wonder whether she would find business life is not the same as what she used to. We may never get answers to these questions. 40 is a wonderful year to be reflective and move life in a different direction, and I hope she succeeds what she lays out to do.

Princess Alexandra recently told in an interview (my own translation):

Quote:
“To step down is being less busy. And that scares me to be less busy. I am a person, who loves a high pace. It is some of the worst of all for me to have nothing to do. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with that.
I think I inherited the quality of being busy from my mother. It is in the genes. Since I was a young child, I have always had a lot of things to do. I can also see the same quality in our children. Nicolai has energy, which is simply unbelievable. He rushes around, and he talks, and he soaks up. Felix has only just started to rush around following the big brother, but I remember, that I once said to a girlfriend: ‘Where has my son all this energy from?’
‘How can you ask yourself that question at all?’ she answered me: ‘Of course he has it from you’.
In the future I would really like to work more with the trades and industries, it is a big part of me, and I have many years of experience in that area. I think, that put together with my humanitarian work, will give a really good balance in my life.”

Thanks Paulette, Alex looks great with dark green dress!

BTW, who is Hans Chirstian Andersen?? Why do they need to cerebrate his 200th anniversary in China?


I am wondering why doesn't her prince go with her? Alex has done alot of things for the royalty.

Hans Christian Anderson was an author who wrote a lot of books for children. Too bad most of our modern society doesn't remember the old authors anymore.

Here is a link to some of his stories:
http://www.pacificnet.net/~johnr/aesop/aesophca.html

Hans Christian Anderson lived in Odense, Denmark ... and at one time in my past, I visited his too, just like the Royal Crown Princely Couple will do too, later this month.

Next year it will be 200 years since he was born? / died ? ..... and given his prolific contribution to society .... and the fact that he came from a small country, he will be substantially honoured along the auspices of "if we package this well, the return on investment will be terrific".

The reason China will be celebrating this too .... is because Joachim has an eye on the future of small Denmark, and saw to it that he "fell in love with a ladie of Chinese extraction" ... and with China becoming the rolling force in world economics for the next time to come, it is in the best interests of China to recognize a link to respectable Europe.

Trust that provides a lead-in to some questions you might have had ....

I don't like the hair either Paulette. That particular style makes her appear older than she is. I think that it would be better suited for a woman in her mid-fifties, not somone who just turned forty.

honestly, I don't like her hair.
I don't see what's negative about it .... a convenient hair-do that looks good.

I prefer the one she had during the 2004 birthday of Queen Margrethe II.
Could you show a set of pictures showing the "then" and "now" ?

Hi everybody
I've been off line for weeks now, but I don't think I have missed much. I don't Alexandra's new haircut either, it makes her look about 5 years older, when before she looked 5 years younger. :P Did anyone else know that Alexandra cut her trip short with Joachim and the boys, just so she could go to China with the choir?

I am just wondering how come Princess Alexandra's trip to China isn't included in the Calendar of the website of the Danish Royal Family. ????

I think it's because this trip to China isn't an official trip of hers maybe she would just accompany the choir. Or I am wrong?????


Next Function of the princess

29/07 04
H.K.H. Prinsesse Alexandra modtager ZONTA på Schackenborg Slot, kl. 14.00.

That is such an immense act from the princess.

Imagine, she has to decrease the number of days she would spend vacationing with her family just to give chance to accompany the Danish Radio Girl Choir to China.

with Alexandra's haircut ... it looks to be a matter of personal opinion.

I like her haircut of now ..... it looks better than before.

And besides ... does she do her haircut for her mum-in-law's approval or that of hubby-dear ? :flower:

I find her interesting because she changes hair styles and clothes colors and coordinates boldly. Unlike some sport a particular hair style for a century (OK, exaggeration, but you get my point). Look at queen elizabeth, sophia, silvia, and younger ones like elena, even maxima. Hair seems to be a sticking point that's just so inflexible, they look always the same. Boring.

by the way, princess martha of norway is also interesting because of creative with alot of things including hair.
