Yes, I am fully aware that she may not be all that comfortable speaking Danish nor taking on any patronages of her own as of late, but my heavens it's the middle of September already. When will she feel comfy? At this point, I doubt she will in the near future hence by 2011.
So, if she wants to stand by her man and only attend official events with him then at least she could do is look the part and not look so frumpy all the time.
Well the princess of asturias has done that ever since the day she got married 4 years ago, with 3 or 4 exceptions, and she is going to be queen someday.
At least, Marie has a minor role as she is the second wife of, the second prince of Denmark.
Letizia is the first wife of the crown prince and mother to the future regent, so i'd say that situation is more critical.
I do hope, though, for Marie's own sake that she'll have some duties on her own some day, and patronages, otherwise I'm worried she'll get really borred in her big castle in North Jutland.
I agree with you, GliterringTiaras, on the last sentence. However, I do think she looked really sweet at the latest event, with the light-purple top
