I think its tacky, surely there would have been some other road or building they could have given Maries name to.
Do you think Marie would have known about this prior the change? If she did and agreed to it, it would make it even worse.

I completely agree with Marfre. This is a really childish thing to do, IMO. I don't think that Marie would agree with something like this, or even knew about this beforehand.

One gets the impression that Alexandra was the pride and joy of the royal family before Frederick and Mary's romance and wedding. She and Joachim held on to a fractured marriage for the sake of appearances and not to draw attention away from the F and M romance. But now, it seems that something like this, which is so public, has become petty.

Is she not the same capable woman she was before? Is she still not the mother of the two princes, and the still friend of her former husband? Doesn't she still have patronages?

Confusing to take her name off a street and at the same time give her patronages and the like...Oh, well.

i read from an article on her military event in skive that marie's name is now a street name "princess marie street". it must be nice to get a street with your name indeed, and so soon! what i found awkward was that it was previously called "princess alexandra st" and they changed the name as it was "no longer appropriate" - couldn't they have changed it to "countess alexandra st" and chosen another street for marie?

EDIT: it's funny as i wrote this before seeing the comment's of the people in this thread (moderators moved my post from another thread), it's interesting to see we all think the same! however, i doubt marie or the royal house knew anything about this - i think it was something the local responsibles did without asking for "permission" on whether it is right, nor can i imagine marie asking for the name to be changed to hers!

According to the following link from the Copenhagen Post online...
http://www.cphpost.dk/news/136-royal-news/47487-former-royal-wife-gives-up-road-name-to-new-princess.html,
It looks like the Danish Royal House did know and approved the change. It was the barracks that felt that the name should be changed.
Quote:
Charlotte Sølvbjerg, spokesperson for the barracks, said they did not feel it was fitting that the road continued to carry
the name of Princess Alexandra and that the royal house had no objections to the move.
Not to be harsh...but it seems that from the barracks point-of-view, they thought that the honor of naming the road should be for a member of the royal family...something that Alexandra isn't anymore.

How disappointing to hear. It just seems so silly, IMO. They could have simply selected another street in honor of Princess Marie. Surely there are many other streets that are just as nice.

He is a beautiful boy - those big eyes looking squarely at the camera - looks so intelligent.
PMarie and PJoachim look so happy with their parenting.

Good to see the little prince back in Denmark, and a month older, after his trip to China.

That looks like the same blanket from his presentation at the hospital wrapped around him in the pram

Yes, it does look like the same blanket.

For the life of me, I'm trying to find the blue in those eyes, but only see brown....

What a beautiful little boy, can't figure out who he looks like. All three of Joachim's boys look different, but all very handsome.
