Countess Alexandra is no longer royal and doesn't represent Denmark as such in any way.

Whether a new wife of Joachim's will become a member of the royal family or he will step out of it with a count's title that remains to be seen.

I would rather see the real princess Alexandra and her sister Nathalie being more active in the Danish royal life, like their mother than any of these mayfly princesses.

Was the Countess, the former Princess Alexandra, not a real Princess or person at one time or another?

Whether Countess Ms. J°rgensen was or is a princess, a person, a hen or a broom I have no idea.

I was referring to this Princess Alexandra: The Danish Monarchy - The Royal House - HRH Princess Benedikte
Scroll down half way in the text and you will find her.

You don't?


Let me say this, Daneborn, the Countess was a real Princess at one time and to belittle her isn't very kind.

For what ever reason of your disliking of her, that's your business. Nonetheless, one cannot doubt nor debate that she was a real Princess of Denmark at one time.

I think Alexandra will not fade into background.
She HAS ALREADY faded into background. (Compared with CP Mary)

For example, there are much more articles and photos about CP Mary than Alexandra, no matter national or international.

It┤s kind of sad for me, because I like to see how she dresses herself.

Well, as much as I am for accuracy in such matters, she definitely was one at some time - let's not retend she wasn't!

Personally I consider your comment quite rude. I have a feeling that you are implying that the Countess is a hen or a broom in your eye. I am just expressing my feeling after reading your post. If this is not what you meant, sorry for my sensitive nose.
I don┤t believe that you don┤t know who Countess "Ms. J÷rgensen" was, since you mentioned the name J÷rgensen.
By the way, She┤s called Alexandra Christina, Countess of Frederiksborg now, though I think she wouldn┤t mind if you call her Mrs. J÷rgensen. But "Countess Ms. J÷rgensen" is sort of....
Maybe you can tell us what your definition of a "real" princess is.
I think people generally agree with the definition that a commoner can become a "real" princess after she marries a prince.

I guess we either accept the right of HM the Queen of Denmark to create "real" princesses out of her daughters-in-law or we don't accept the monarchy in Denmark at all.

You can't have it both ways, IMHO.

I think Christo's Girl's original question is getting lost.

Christo's Girl asked whether there would be room for three royal ladies (Mary, Alexandra, Marie) if Joachim got married again.

The short answer is no, because Alexandra gave up her royal title when she married Martin and she indicated when she got married that she wanted her private life again.

I think Alexandra served her country very well during her time as a princess but that's not really relevant to the functions and activities that she may be doing now. She made a choice for a different type of life now.

Please let's get back on topic. This thread has nothing to do with Joachim, Marie or Mary. It's about whether or not Alexandra is pregnant.

Thanks,

If it's true...Congratulations to the happy couple!! If they had a little girl she'd be beautiful! Her sons are an attest to the fact that she's half of the genes that make them such beautiful children! Another little boy would be just as cute!

I'm confused by now. Is Alexandra pregnant or not? She doesn't look pregnant in pictures from Caribbean Islands.

There has been no official confirmation from Countess Alexandra and Martin. Nor has there been confirmation from the Palace.

Even if she was pregnant I highly doubt the Danish Palace representatives would confirm it since she is no longer an official member of the DRF. Countess Alexandra is a private citizen now, so if she chooses to announce whether she is pregnant to the public that is her choice. If not that is her private choice as well.

So far, I see it as malicious rumours from a tabloid (Se og H°r) out in the cold, just wanting to sell papers and make money from something EVERYBODY wants to read about whether it's true or not.

I think it's too premature anyway to broadcast news like this to remote relatives in Austria. But it's a good excuse for the paper to publish it.

Well, it's a common way to title people in Sweden and Norway.
Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson is one example.
Princess Ragnhild Mrs. Lorentzen is another.
It's their official title all right.

I think Countess Alexandra Mrs. J°rgensen sounds nice.

If she does get pregnant I hope it will be twin girls.

Yes. Countess Alexandra Mrs. J÷rgensen sounds nice.
But not Countess Ms. J÷rgensen.

halo everyone,
alexandra doesn't seem to me as a person who wants to fade to the background.of course she knows that she is not any more member of the DRF, but she has kept the most important of her patronages.this means that she will have official engagements.

Yes, you are right.
That's their style in general, they are really unbearable (or laughable) at times
which is the reason why I usually don't buy BB, only at special occasions and because they do have the best pictures.
Therefore I missed the "brave Mary" article but I do remember one in connection with their Australian visit,
about Frederik moved to tears by his son. Really disgustingly sugary.
(On the positive side it seems BB at least tries to give accurate information
and not so many "out of the blue"-stories.)
Is it really impossible to publish a mag which gives relieable information
in a normal (meaning neither sugary nor bashing) style?

I'm confused. Where did whatever wikipedian get the information that she's pregnant from? Have I missed an article or something
See bottom of this page, under "Marriage to Martin J°rgensen"

As you should know anyone can add unfounded, lies, gossip and so forth on Wikipedia. That whole site is filled with misinformation including the gossip about the Countess.

Once and for all there has been no confirmation from the Countess and Martin, the DRF or other Palace officials, even though she is no longer apart of the royal family. So far this whole notion of her being pregnant is a rumor.

Someone needs to go in and edit that false information out of Countess Alexandra's Wikipedia page.
