Princess Alexandra's Mom is Austrian, her Dad is Chinese, she was born in Hong Kong. Last I checked, Hong Kong is in South East Asia... I think she's Asian :) Or to be more precise, she's Eurasian.

About paying money for life time I don't know the real reason behind the decision (any Danish here can help explain more?), may be paying for life time means including pay her retire salary just like the other retire worker get. About what Joachim pay to her, I think she just gets what pre nuptial agreement had said:) .
I would love to see Princess Alexandra in the public eye and remarried. But look at the otherside of the coin. Prince Joachim will one day remarry and if and when that happens, would his wife take over where Alexandra left off? Will she, the future Princess Joachim, take over Alexandra's patronages as an official member of the Danish Royal Family? Something to think about.

Highly unlikely. She will have to make her own way and decide what her interests are and how she can help the people of Denmark. Any future wife of Joachim will have to create her own role for herself. Alexandra is no longer married to Joachim but has not left Denmark or her responsibilities there. She clearly plans to remain there and there is no reason for her to pass on the responsibilities of her patronages.

It is really nice and cool to see pictures of royals attending special events such as costume parties, masked balls or masquerade events. I think it is a rare opportunity to look at them wearing these kind of attires because they usually wear attires in contrast to these costumes.
Besides, Princess Alex looks chic and gorgeous in that black attire with that mask thing.

Princess Alex is really close to Henrietta Zobel. They usually shop or hang out together. I have seen pictures to them.

20 SEPTEMBER 2005

Denmark's Princess Alexandra has shown off two very different sides to her character after wearing radically contrasting outfits on the same day

When night fell, however, she emerged with a glamorous new look for a masquerade bash

Agreed. She looks great in both outfits, but the masquerade look is just fabulous! The gown is actually understated, the mask gave the outfit the omph factor.

The royals portal (german site)says that: "She is the eldest of three daughters of Richard Nigel Manley, son of a Briton and a Chinese woman, and Christa Maria Nowotny, an Austrian with Polish ancestry."

From a genealogy forum I found the following info in swedish:
"Prinsessan Alexandra Christina av Danmark, född 30 jun 1964 i Hong Kong. Äldst av tre systrar. Gift 18 nov 1995 med Prins Joakim Holger Waldemar Christian av Danmark.

Far: Richard Nigel Manley, född i Schanghai av en asiatisk mor och engelsk far. Familjen Manley kan spåras åtminstone till mitten av 1500-talet i Cheshire, England (anfadern Henry Manley?).

Mor: Christa Maria Nowotny, född i Österrike. Manager i firman German Communications i Hong Kong. Nowotny har ett heraldiskt vapen (från när vet jag inte), och är förgrenad runt om i världen. Ett antal framstående forskare i Europa heter Nowotny (framgår av sökning på Google)."

So, in other words, she is 1/4 chinese, 1/4 british and from her mother's side she is austrian/polish.

I think we have had enough talk on Princess Alexandra's ancestry. Please remember this is a Current Events thread. If you are interested in her ancestry, open up another thread.

I stand corrected. Sorry about that but I was reading something about the Sultanate of Sulu - which is in SE Asia - and had that on the brain when I was writing my previous post. Thanks for pointing it out :)

Speaking of which - is there a forum for the Sultanate of Sulu? I know it's not the forum for it but thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks for your patience :)

Princess Alexandrias arms and figure are to die for. She looks so stunning and hot at the masquered ball. She probably feels young and rejuvianted now that she has a Ashton Kutcher of her own.

I think Alexandra is the protector of girl's choir and Mary is the protector of children's choir (I am not that sure about this, please correct me if i am wrong). May be she is there due to Mary's condition . Thanks for the picture Alex looks lovely as usual:) .

new article from BT.....can someone translate or summarize?
After the divorce, the postcards with Alexandra and Joachim together on them, became sort of an collectors item... And now they're nearly impossible to get a hold of, as official portraits with the two of them are unlikely to be produced, says the company making the cards.

Unfortunate for some Chinese tourists in Copenhagen: the only one they "knew" in the Danish royal family before arriving, was Princess Alexandra.
