Personally I don't think there is anything wrong with the picture - the skirt is not too short, and doesn't really reveal anything. Ideally, you should avoid crossing your legs - but it can be difficult sometimes not to do it.

I have not seen anything in her background to indicate that she would deliberately sit in a provocative manner. :-)

Once again, you have hit the nail on the head. I agree with you wholeheartedly.

There is no fault of our beloved and talented photographer - Madeleine Glindorf. It is simply the way Alexandra sitting on the chair - the look it allows under her skirt . It is a "total miss" in terms of style, not as a Princess on an official function.

So, it is noone's fault other than Alexandra's bad and indecent sitting posture. Alexandra is accountable to herself for her own actions. In fact, there are many photos of Alexandra in that sitting position as below :

Here is one from Rex Features- credit to photographer Peter Grosen


Credit -AOP denmark


Credit Mayflower of CPMMB with thanks for the above photos.
I agree that Alexandra could have expected this, but people do make mistakes. They're human after all, and Alexandra is human too.

Speaking of mistakes, Linda, aren't you the Forum Member who is so addicted to drinking the Mary-Koolaid that you continuously cannot stomach one inch of constructive criticism to the Danish Crown Princess? You are as lenient to Mary and anything Mary does as you are intolerant to anything Alexandra does. Why?

You are calling Alexandra a hypocrite and sure she may well be, but if she is than Mary might be one too. But god forbid you would admit that a girl from Down Under could be a cynical member of the human race too. I'm not saying I think either Mary or Alexandra is hypocritical. I think both women are doing a good job regarding their scope. That you like one doesn't mean you have to dislike the other, that is a very childish and immature notion.

I think this should not be a let's bash the royal thread. Like the princess does not dress like Pamela Anderson but if she did, that would be a cause for debate. It's a smart suit. Not everyone is conscious of everything, especially when they have a speech or task at hand, and when you have photographers constantly surrounding you at events for over 10 years, it becomes so natural that you don't feel as conscious or self conscious as you probably did at the very beginning. If people don't like Princess Alexandra, they should not visit the thread to irritate themselves and make comments that may offend or irritate others. Sure everyone is entitled to their comments, but sometimes a bit of diplomacy should be in order. For example, one could think, this is an Alexandra thread, it was started by someone who likes her. Should I voice my negative opinion?

If one wants to avoid ruffling feathers, perhaps as I said in my very first post it is better not to say anything at all. Opinions are valid. But for the sake of avoiding debates and getting people upset we should refrain from making negative comments about anything. Look, the world is already a negative place and this forum is a place where we can escape from the negative things in the world, our lives and for a brief moment enter the world of royalty. Let's not drag the negativism into this forum as well. I hope that I have not offended anyone by my statements, that is not what I have intended, all I'm saying is please be positive. One negative/judgment has snowballed from something positive - Madeleine, sharing her pictures to the current situation. So PLEASE, for the sake of this thread, for the sake of this forum let's keep our comments positive. Thank You and have a nice day.

I can't believe anyone would think that Alexandra meant to be photographed in this way, or that she was unduly careless. You can clearly see that the skirt was long enough when she was standing
But that's the problem.
A skirt that is long enough while standing does not necessarily have to be too short while sitting.
Only if you are unduly careless or if it is meant that way.

I was around three years ago when Alexandra and Joachim were still married and the comments on Alexandra were almost uniformly positive. Did all those people leave the boards or did they change their minds about her? She's in a bad position, and handling it gracefully.
Actually it was I who called Alexandra a hypocrite, not LindaHsu.
And my sceptical approach started long before Frederik met Mary,
around the time when Joachim got engaged with Alexandra.
I always had my doubts and they became more and more over the years
(through own observations and hearsay) and finally I developed a dislike for Alexandra.
Only I was not a member of this board three (or 10) years ago and therefore could not express my opinion.
And I think 3 years ago the comments may have been more positive
because people really believed in that "faultless superprincess/loving wife and mother/busiest royal"-image
which was created by the media (with the help of Alexandra of course).
Then it turned out that it had nothing to do with reality.

I don't think that Alexandra's current position is that bad, moreover she and Joachim themselves are responsible for it.
But I agree and already said in a previous post that she handled the divorce very well.
See, I can say something positive about her.

(Regarding Mary only a few words since this is an Alexandra-thread:
In the beginning I was very sceptical towards her too, out of different reasons though.
I have a much better feeling now. But if I ever get the impression of hypocracy I will not hesitate to say so.)

I think showing or not showing her legs she looks good anyway. I like her wearing jeans too.

What is that supposed to mean? It sounds like the princess presented or was presented anti-semitic propaganda- what up with that?!

It was Anti-Israel, no anti-semitic. A lot of people who are friendly towards Jews or are Jews themselves are against the politics of the Israelian government, even in Israel.

It was not Anti-Israel either.
It was Anti-Torture in Israel.

I understand this very well, the first Alexandra years I was sceptical of her too and even now I can totally see that she is a very clever media handler (aka manipulator). As soon as <she> knew a divorce may be on the cards (and no one had an inkling yet) in the earlier 2000's, she started traveling the globe visiting poor little kids as much as if there was no tomorrow, always making sure a TV crew trailing her every move (no wonder she got close to Martin). She hadn't done that much traveling in the first years of her marriage.

By the time Joachim (and she) called it a day, she had built up a new image as the peripatetic, roving ambassador for lesser-well-off humans, while smiling to the cameras at home wearing a nice fur coat. I totally get that, you have a point, absolutely.

And yet I like the woman..perhaps, if only, because she <does> know how to behave and smile and put on a good front in the face of adversity, not resorting to whining to the press the way that other royal divorcee did (Diana). And anyway she got way way more interesting <after> the divorce, emerging strongly, I admire her for that. That and these days she is a smart dresser!

Yes, Yvion, Princess Alexandra and Martin are dating and have been for quite sometime.

Prince Joachim, Martin and Princess Alexandra were photographed outside the wedding of Oscar Siesbye and Britt Tang Lassen, friends of former couple, having a short friendly chat according to recent reports in the Danish magazine, Billed Bladet.

They were? With the three of them? I've only seen the picture of her and Martin arriving, she's wearing a brown long dress if I'm not mistaken.

There are several of photos of Prince Joachim, Martin, and Princess Alexandra having a quick chat outside of the church after the wedding ceremony.

Prince Joachim did not accompany Princess Alexandra and Martin to the wedding. Yes, Princess Olga she was wearing what looks to be a dark brownish dress with her hair elegantly slicked back in a low chignon.

The first one says: Martin is frustrated that Alex refused his proposal because she does not know
whether she wants to give up all the advantages she has now.

The second one says basically the same: how much it would cost Alexandra to marry Martin (princess-title and tax-free).

The third one is relating to an article of BT which says that Alexandra is on her way to be Denmarks best paid unemployed.
That she worked next to nothing this autumn and that her apanage might be changed if she continues this way.

This is the link to the article in BT, "Easy job for Alexandra":
http://www.bt.dk/article/20061116/RO...1160590/1058/A
It's quite remarkable because BT usually has a positive approach towards the DRF and especially Alexandra.
