the first message was posted in relation to the colourpress comparison. i admit the pictures dont show them together! but i hope the second posting clarifies this. i think it would be nice to keep the thread since i do hope that we will have many more pictures in the future of both princesses together. if it is merged with the CV threads, people might not automatically assume to find picture discussions there. i hope this makes sense! thanks for understanding

there are so many pictures of laurentien-maxima, letizia-elena/christina but not many of mary and alexandra. they seem to atend few events together.
here one more from this weeks church service

Mary and Alexandra

There are many pictures posted of CP Mary sitting next to HH Alexandra but I have not seen the two interact. You always see other princesses, i.e. CP Leticia and the Infanta's interact, but not Mary and Alexandra. Does anybody have any information of their relationship or lack of? Is Alexandra jealous of Mary and this further strained her relationship with her ex-husband?

They did interact when they were both present at a fashion show. If you look in a thread (cant remember which) there is some pics of them looking like they are discussing the dresses they are seeing.

The media has tried to create a rivalry between Alex and Mary but no we dont really see them interacting very much. Please correct me if i am wrong here. ]

PS- Welcome to the forums Lourdes!

They have interacted, especially at the fashion that they both attended. They were even photographed laughing and whispering like girlfriends.

The media is simply trying to create a rivalry between these two women, especially since Alex and Joachim's divorce.

I doubt that Alex is jealous of Mary. For what reason? Alex still has the best of both worlds. She continues to represent the RF and now has her own home and life that is separate from them as well. Sounds good to me. She has not only been allowed to keep the title Princess of Denmark, but has had a title created specifically for her which she can maintain even if she should choose to remarry. I think that says a lot about her significance and contributions to the RF of Denmark, not to mention the amount of the respect that Her Majesty clearly must have for Alexandra.

I do not see where Alex and Joachim have a strained relationship. They may no longer be husband and wife, but they still appear to be good friends who are doing a wonderful job of being civil after a divorce that could have been extremely messy. The media certainly tried to create an uproar, but when they saw that Alex and Joachim were not going to have it, they chose to start making trouble elsewhere.

it's not true that they don't interact together. they were seen many times attending shows together and alexandra from what mary said once helped her a lot during the first times in the royal house.

Is a good question indeed..Alexandra is soo sympathic and wonderful woman and princess..she should have the same chance to make this reception..but now that the isnt a member of the RF anymore is very difficult to happens...and I suppose that the Queen gave this chance to Mary to make her feel more comfortable and closer with her patronages and charities

yes, i think Mary is an exception.
Alexandra could host her own reception when she was still married, and member of RF, but she didn't.
it would've been very interesting..

Alex is not the kind of woman who needs her own kur to make a statement about her own work for charities.

Maybe because it is not part of danish tradition. I've read that until now, just Fredrick does. In this occassion, it is probably that Mary asked for it, it is maybe part of her caracther to do things like this and didn't had problems to ask Fredrick if it was possible. I cant see Alexandra doing the same thing, as it sounds like a bit out of her boundaries.

i totally agree with you..
she's secure with herself and do her humanitarian work or patronages at a slightly different method than mary.
i personally like her works better (like when she visited south africa, india, bangladesh, and many other places)

I dont think it is fare to confront their works, as they have different roles and experience. Alexandra is already an old member of the family, Mary has just few years and she needs time to adapt and evolve, like any other person in a new position.

Yes, I think the same. Alex is not the type who is afraid of getting her hands dirty. She is happy to see what the charities actually do and how she can actually help them to help others. She does not need to dress up in a ball gown to do her job.

Yes, you are right about that. I have to say I do not agree with Mary hosting her own Kur. But I better leave this for another thread otherwise will be going off topic. :)

And I think that a direct comparison between Mary and Alexandra in this instance is pointless. Mary is married to the heir, Alexandra was not.

Mellissajames, what does "Alex is not the kind of woman who needs her own kur to make a statement about her own work for charities. " mean
Do you know for sure that e.g. the idea of a 'kur' for Mary's patronages does not originate from the queen herself?

maybe its pecause Mary are breastfeeding and have the little prince in a nearby chamber. It makes it easyer for her to nursing the child when she is home and not at the big Christiansborg castle

May be the queen came up with the idea...what difference would that make?

As far as I am concerned, Mary has been representing the charities for 2 years tops? And she/whoever at the court feels the need to host a party to celebrate this accomplishment its over the top to me.

If Mary hosts her own Kur after representing the charities for 5/10 years, then yes a party would be well deserved and appropriate.

I doubt she can even remember all the organisations that she's supposed to be supporting and their chair person's name by heart without rehersing.

Anyone can turn up at a function all dressed up and make small talk without putting in too much effort. But the REAL work of supporting charities and their objectives lies in doing field work and seeing the real challenges for yourself, and this is something that Alex understands and can do flawlessly.
