Sadly enough they think that they are the voice of Denmark and they have no respekt of democracy.
In my oppinion they have been brainwashed by ther leader and i think that it
is sad.

Do they have many followers? If they do it must have been intimidating for Alexandra.

When I wrote about some racist Danes, I was thinking about that DSNAP group and some tabloid (I apologise for remembering it as Ekstra Bladet. Obviously it´s another one) which had an article not so long ago calling Alex "Oriental slut" or something similar. I read it on one of the posts here. They´re definitely not representative of Danes, but the unfortunate thing is that they are Danes, so I just referred to them as such. Every country has racists, and all of us normal intelligent people hate them. But they do exist, though thankfully there are not so many.
I´m aware (and admire them) that the majority of Danes are wonderfully open-minded and friendly people. I apologise if I offended anyone, but it was not my intention. I meant that small group of mad people who are racist and who were making nasty remarks about Alex. Sooooooorrrry .

I agree with Xandra and Layla1971.

Whether or not she got out of the marriage with Joachim because she was the cheating party and preferred her younger lover, who cares.

Because the fact is that this girl is as good a representative and ambassador for Denmark as well as a slew of worthy causes as I've seen. She not only does a very decent job, she works long days--and many of them--and long hours. She is arguably one of the hardest working royals in Western Europe at the moment. I certainly get the impression that in terms of putting in the man hours, she can give many a cushy Euro crown princess a run for their money! (including her clotheshorse ex-sister-in-law)

In short, I believe that at the end of the day, she gets that nice allowance from the Danish people because she has proven she is a true asset for the country. They are lucky to have her. I hope they realize it.

Maybe she's happy about that! Especially with a new boyfriend to keep her distracted, and I don't mean that in the way you think!

I think she looks much happier now than she did when she was married. Maybe that's just me though!:)

Yes it’s Se og Hør and Ekstrabladet but here is the translation anyway

Its probably just a backlash for the papers blaming Joachim right after the divorce. I thought that was stupid and premature. People did not know what led to the marriage breakup and they still don't know now. They're just trying to find reasons.

The article seems to imply that Alexandra could have spoken up when Joachim was getting blamed. But I don't know whether the DRF or Joachim would have wanted her to do that anyway. If she had said something, it could have backfired.

Joachim and Alexandra did the best thing they could; nothing. They said or did nothing to show problems. there will always be rumours but no one will ever know. the best and most gracious way to handle it.

wow...wow... she's really really busy toward the end of the year, huh? first, Sri Langka, then Russia, now South Africa, next is China.
she's a treasure for denmark, and i'm glad she's taking more and more role, seems like danish ambassador to the world.

Agree very much with Prince Jonnhy25. There´s no point commenting on tabloid nonsense. It never ends, anyway.
what I find really hilarious is how we´re supposed to believe there was an affair by looking at a totally public GROUP photo, (official too, I suppose, since Alex´s lady in waiting was there) of a cookery class. Hallo?

Thanks for all these wonderful pictures, Princess Alexandra looks just marvelous! I'm so impressed by her, she really exuberates inner happiness, and she looks fantastic all the time. She's really doing a great job representing her country and her areas of interest.

I don't keep up that closely with Princess Alexandra, but she looks great post-divorce. Much happier! Can somebody tell me her arrangement with custody of the two little princes? Who gets more time with them? Alexandra I'm guessing...
She does seem to truly care about people and works hard for the UN and a number of other charities and organizations.
Another question, (sorry!) will Alexandra ever receive another tiara? Or is it the Diamond Drop Tiara and that's it. I wish she would get a new one. The one she has now is pretty but it's overused since it's the only one she has.

Both Prince Nikolai & Prince Felix live with Princess Alexandra at a new home in Svanemollevej in Copenhagen. (i hope i'm spelling it right)
but, every now and then (i suppose when Alexandra is abroad), they would spend time and live in Schackenborg Manor, just outside Copenhagen.

i really hope Alex will get a new tiara... but it's very unlikely... :(

Yeah...I am thinking she is not getting a new one. Unless she purchases it herself, or its a gift. But who would purchase one for her.

yeah, she can probably purchase it on her own. but, since most tiara has history or a family heirloom, it would be weird for her to wear in public since it has no significant meaning except for looking beautiful.
