But - according to BT - she loves expensive clothes, travels to exotic destinations - also with her 27 year old* boyfriend Martin Jørgensen - and that she has spent a lot of money on purchases of designer furniture and other luxury items for her new palatial villa just north of Copenhagen.
She still needs to keep a good home for her 2 sons - who are after all Princes of Denmark - what do people expect her to do shop for furniture at Ikea?

Also , expensive clothes and visits to exotic locations -those descriptions can also be used to describe mary and Frederick.

If she truly spent all that money on shopping, she must be hiding them. She recycles a lot (which is a good thing). The tabloid press is something aren't they!

Hi everyone,

I don't think it's a bad idea to recycle clothes...especially clothes that are that nice and expensive. And if your clothes become you so well, why wouldn't you want to wear them for a long time? :)

We could not really rely on gossip magazines and tabloids to give us the real figure that could prove that Princess Alexandra's shopping habits are way too much already. I think what they are stating are rubbish.

I think it is quite impossible for her to spend a little amount of money when to think she has two sons who are growing every minute of the day. And most of all, she has a very important work to do which is related to her position as part of the royal family.

The Crown Princely couple even spends a big amount of money on various reasons when in fact they still have one son. How much more with Princess Alex who has Nikolai and Felix?

Don't you think that Joachim also pays for Nikolai and Felix? I wouldn't be surprised at all if Joachim took on half of the financial responsibility when it come to raising his sons. It would be expecting too much (and giving too much credit) to think that Alexandra pays for all of her sons' needs.

However, I too don't think that Alexandra spent most of her money on clothes, coz as we can see, she recycles. She has just moved into a new house, so I think she spent most of the money on furnitures and on travel.

But who knows what she spent it on. Its all conjecture for us. Like the Australian newspapers - they just divided Mary and Frederik's personal expenses by the 365 (days in a year) and claimed that that amount was what Mary spent on herself!!! And some simple people believed the newspaper claiming this! Absolutely crappy reporting.

She looks lovely but just seeing her outfit is making me warm. A turtleneck in June?!

I like her pink hat though :). Adds a sweet, feminine touch to her outfit.

Thanks for the pictures, purple platinum. I especially find the second and the last ones of your thumbnails superb. The hat with that feather (?) looks fantastic to her outfit. :)


soCal girl, it looks like it was chilly. And a bit rainy maybe, so a turtleneck was probably appropiate.

This is a really lovely picture!
A butterfly on Alexandra's shoulder seems to have made her laugh.

Besides that, too much beige.
It seems the Danish princesses prefer to wear very dark colours when it's cold
and very bland colours when it's summerly.

Thanks for the pictures of Alex in the "Rainforest"! She looks like she's having a great time and her outfit (with exception of the hat) is fantastic.
