- The sum is regulated on April 1st, and October 1st, in concurrence with Danish Statistic Index for Government Employees.
- The sum is paid in monthly rates.
- As long as she doesn't marry again, she'll not have to pay tax out of the money.
- When/if she marries, the yearly sum is replaced by a special tribute, with the same basic sum, but have to pay tax.
- As long as Princess Alexandra gets the yearly sum, or the special tribute, she can't get subsidized for working for the government.

(A mangled translation. I'm a bit tired.)
The sum has been raised since the law was made. Alexandra now gets 1.8 million.

Good luck my dear princess! Treat yourself well! Forget about him, he is nothing compared to you. Your real prince is waiting for you!!!!
Too bad some people seem to want to make an issue of her ancestry:(

Notice that her children are also partially asian as well, like their mother -- and they are also royalty. It is ridiculous to think, in my opinion, that her heritage keeps her from being accepted. That would mean that her children wounld not be accepted fully also -- which I think is a crazy notion. Anyone with that idea on her, well, she does not need to ever be bothered with such small minded people anyway.

In the end, wealth, power, privledge and status tend to negate all that other crazy stuff that people want to use to divide themselves. She and her children have all of that (what most people think they themselves want) so it does not matter what anyone thinks anyway.

I like her, she's great!:)

I don't think that ancestry has anything to do with it. Neither do I think has culture have anything to do with it. If that were true then I cite Crown Princess Mary and Crown Princess Maxima who were not of that cultural background but still are accepted. Or are you talking about race here? If so, you're wrong. If anyone of these princesses didn't think they could rise to the occasion and perform in anyway up to the standards, I'm sure they would have chosen another path.

Just put yourself in their shoes, could you do that? Could you leave your home, traditions, friends, language and go to another world where you would have to learn everything from scratch? I salute these brave women who rose to the challenge and made a very good life despite having to live in an "alien" culture (in other words something they didn't grow up in) and embracing it as their own.

First of all , in comparison to all the pure european royalty, she does look asian, that' s undeniable. I'm not saying that's negative. I think she is a great looking asian-european lady.

Second of all, it's not a crazy notion. Racial segregation and discriminations are everywhere. And i never said that her being multiracial is what led to her divorce.

"she does not need to ever be bothered with such small minded people anyway."

I am not small minded. You shouldn't make such a remark based on one thing a person says. Living in a multi-racial society and based on observations, i have noticed the complexities in the real world.

And i never said i didn't like her. I never try to attack her or anything. I was just giving out my opinion, like all of the rest of you.

I think it's great that their royal kids are muti-racial. They are differnt and unique

Princess Alexandra looks very elegant and stylish! Mon dieu! :) Very nice colour on her, and it fits her like a glove.

So great to see her involvement in adoption issues also, I hope the conference was interesting.
