I don't know if this discussion should be in the Current Events thread.

However, IMO I don't think Marie is getting anymore bad comments than Mary has had (I wasn't around for Alexandra). The only princess that doesn't seem to inspire negative comments is Princess Mathilde of Belgium.
All the current crown princesses seem to have their loyal supporters and those that just seem to dislike everything they do, wear or say. Mary is always criticised about her fashion (even though neighbouring princesses can attend fashion shows, wearing designer clothes and not be commented about)

As for Princess Marie not wearing designer clothing, it might be good to look through some of Marie's fashion threads to see where her clothing comes from.

And although I stand to be corrected Marie already wears Prada footwear (or a very good imitation).

They all look like they are having so much fun in the snow.
Just a question, did the Countess (Alexandra) ski ??? What about CP Letizia ??
I know all the others seem to ski.

Letizia does ski, we've seen pictures of her doing so.

It just seems to me that Princess Marie has been treated especially harshly by others. From her dealings with the press during her and Prince Joachim's courtship, the engagement press conference & pre-wedding interviews, to her speed in learning Danish & the initial lack of formal solo engagements, it appears to me from browsing older threads that Marie has been treated slightly more harshly then her predecessors. Her choice of outfits in particular has been heavily criticised by other royal watchers. However I wasn't around during Countess Alexandra or Crown Princess Mary's early days so I was wondering if more seasoned royal watchers had any thoughts?
I wasn't around when Joachim and Alexandra married but through the years Alexandra worked very hard and really endeared herself to the Danish people - she jumped right into her new role as princess plus she learned Danish very quickly and seemed to speak it like a native. She had been a business executive - she knew how to dress and behave. I think that people thought that Joachim was lazy and never did anything except participate in car races.
When they divorced it was a shock as nobody had sensed that the marriage was troubled. Everyone blamed Joachim as not keeping up with Alexandra and her charity works - there was also a hint of immaturity on his part as Alexandra is ilder and seemed more mature.
There was Alexandra and the two boys and her elderly parents having to forge a new life and there was Joachim being seen gadding about with Marie.
It would be hard for anyone to excell as Alexandra did as Joachim's wife.

It's nice to see Joachim, Marie and his kids all together when they were on their skiing vacation! The boys looks like they were having so much fun in the snow.

wonderful happy photos, these boys are adorable, so natural and sweet...just a joy to see. i couldn't understand much but the love came through loud and clear. thanks so much for the links. i couldn't tell in the video who was speaking but it seemed to be a mixture of danish, french and english, it was delightful.

The boys look adorable playing around in the snow. Looked like they were having a wonderful time. It wouldve been nice to see the Cp couple with them and Christian playing with the boys would be really cute.
Marie looked lovely in her ski outfit. She seems to be really glowing and pregnency suits her well.

i'm in love with this picture of marie and her lovely dog inside the bag! they look so adorable. it seems that her dog apple is a lifetime companion of marie. that's so nice to see.

appart from that i think it's great to see how marie blended in with the family and the kids are obviously comfortable around her. that's what makes her so nice and approachable to me: i once read (and proves true for this case!) that you can't fool kids or animals; you just have to be genuinely nice for them to like you.

Have there been any announcements about Princess Marie taking on any patronages? I see from post #155 that she and Joachim are participating in what appears to be an event with Lego. In November, Marie visited Morocco to hand out Legos to needy children. Is this upcoming event for Lego something similar to her Moroccan event?

no announcements just yet, sgl, as far as i'm aware. i very much look forward to knowing what she will concentrate on. recently she commented that she was still looking into potential endeavours.

here's a couple of pictures of marie with the boys that i love. it's great seeing how well she gets along with them.

Marie looked radiant!
She looks so proud (of her very beautiful belly). She's glowing.
