Well, Countess Alexandra has been gone from another of her protections, it seems. Afsked med pigekoret: Mørket sænker sig over Alexandra - Royale | www.bt.dk

Normally a protection is for life - or until it is handed over to someone else (within the DRF that is).
Now Alexandra and the DR1 Girls Choir (with whom she been with often, if you look through these pages).
The reason is that the ending of the patronage is after mutual concent.

As such Alexandra and her two sons attended a show with the Girls Choir for the last time as patron.

The gossip magazine Her & Nu quotes unnamed sources for Alexandra being too expensive to have around, in other words her demands were too luxurious - presumably when on tour. (How credible Her & Nu is is very debatable however).

The royalty expert Lars Hovbakke Sørensen has previously commented: "It happens very rarely that such protections ends.
I don't know how interested the DRF is in Alexandra having a future role. Her protections have been justified because she was a member of the DRF, but she isn't anymore. So neither the DRF nor the Danish society/community/public has an interest in her keep having a prominent role".

BT goes on to speculate that as Nikolai and Felix gets older and eventually become adults, Alexandra's role is ending. So it cannot be ruled out that she will relinguish further protections. - (That in my eyes seems a logic and reasonable assumption).

Ironically Alexandra went into the concert arm in arm with the chairman of the Association of the Blind, who had some pretty harsh words to say about Alexandra as patron just a few months ago. Today however he had nothing but good to say about her...

Thank you for posting that gallery Alexandra looks beautiful – she has such a lovely smile. I'm really happy that she has grown her hair out, it looks so good at the length it is now.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #21, 2015.
Written by our man at the sea, Ken Richter.

Countess Alexandra is patron of the North Sea Oceanarium located in the town of Hansholm and has been so for seventeen years.
You may remember the oceanarium from M&F visiting it during a cruise with Dannebrog some years ago. You know, when Frederik donned a diving suit and he and Mary kissed through the glass of the main aquarium. (See pics above in Polyesco's post).
Okay, the passion that day may have been too much for the glass because some three years ago it started to crack...
But now the 38 tonnes and 41 centimeter thick glass has been replaced and it was time for a re-inauguration of the main aquarium, and this is where Alexandra came in. She brought with her two of her boys, Nikolai and Felix.

Nikolai seemed pretty impressed by the main attraction a sunfish (*) and said: "I didn't know a sunfish can weigh two tonnes". The boys have indeed tried fishing but: "We have tried fishing, but we've never caught anything".
It also impressed the family to learn that there are no less than twelve species of sharks in the North Sea.
Alexandra said to our reporter: "The largest can be eleven meters long. - It's exciting to show the boys that not all fish are tropical with lots of colors like when we ourselves had aquarium-fish".

- Notice that Ken Richter rarely writes about clothing and such. He wouldn't know a Louis Vutton bag if he was hit on the head with one.

(*) Such a thinghy: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...Aquarium_2.jpg
They are pretty problematic to keep in an aquarium. Something about the right pressure.

Alex and the boys attended the Ecco Walkathlon, saying 'we stand together'.

Last year Martin had attended too but that is the past (..)

(..)

I hope that Nikolai and Felix will still be able to see and keep in contact with Martin now that he and Alexandra are no longer together. However as a few posters said in the divorce thread, Nikolai and Felix are old enough to do that for themselves now especially since Martin is probably only a phone call or text away from them.

I wonder if, now Alex and Martin are no more, we will see more of her out and about. With two children at school including one of which is at boarding school as well as splitting time between parents going out and and doing work for her charities might fill the time she last left now there is no one at home to spend time with.
Might be smart as the media could spin it as now her and Martin are over it was his influence that meant she didn't work so much before.

Felix looks a bit uncomfortable . Could be just normal teenage stuff but I hope he is not "used" for the press

Hopefully its just 'normal teenage stuff', to be fair I imagine theres a big difference is being confident enough to say you want to go and actually appearing unbothered by a photographer when you get there, i.e. Felix may have said he wanted to go knowing there would be media there but then was a bit uncomfortable when he got there and its all going off around him.

I don't think we should put too much into Nikolai ad Felix being present at the Ecco Walkhaton. They have been there almost every year AFAIR.

But yes, I think Felix is embarrassed. He is usually not shy, but a very open and glad boy.
But IMO there is little doubt his world has been shook up and that can very well affect his confidence when in the spotlight. Can't say I blame him!

Alexandra visiting Randers Rainforest, for which she has been patron for the past 20 years. With her went Nikolai and Felix: Grevinde Alexandra besøgte Randers Regnskov | Billed Bladet

And a video from the visit also from BB: VIDEO: Grevinde Alexandras familieudflugt | Billed Bladet

The visit this time focused on the exhibition about preserving the old breeds of Danish livestock.
Felix said: "It's always nice to be with/to go with mother".
