I wonder who is staying with Nikolai & Felix while mom is away in South Africa, and dad is busy in Monaco.
Is it Alexandra's parents?

quite possibly since they live in Denmark. but even if the kids are with her parents, i'm sure they still have their nanny with them.

Thanks lots for the pictures, purple platinum. Princess Alexandra seems really happy as she always is, before when she was still in the royal family and now, she always a lovely person, always friendly and warm to people.

Alexandra originally belonged to the Anglican church. Here's what it says on the official website http://kongehuset.dk/artikel.php?dogtag=k_en_fam_ale
Princess Alexandra was christened in Saint John's Cathedral, Hong Kong. In Denmark the Princess, who originally belonged to the Anglican Church, has received instruction in the Lutheran Faith and was confirmed prior to the wedding in 1995.

She looked very gorgeous and fresh in the pictures. She manages to look very elegant even in very simple attires. Unlike other royal ladies who really dress up to the max for some events, Princess Alex feels more elegant, confident and absolutely beautiful in simple attires.

I really applaud her for all the tremendous hard work she has done ever since the past. It does not refer only to her family, the DRF but most especially to Denmark. Her role as a royal has contributed so much especially in the promotion of the Danish Arts and Culture.

i think the last one is when she visited Robin (or Robben) Island, she visited Nelson Mandela's ex prison cell.
she wore the same clothes..

She's already there for 3 days now, and i'm wondering why we haven't seen any pictures of her.
