Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #41, 2013.

Q: What is the relationship between the DRF and the Rosenborgs?

A:
Their relationship is fine but they don't associate much and never have.

During the debate leading up to the change in the Law of Succession in 1953, the later Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid did what they could to protect their children from being affected family-wise.
As has been pointed out elsewhere, the change in the Law of Succession was the will of the people and the politicians with the DRF being somewhat relegated to the role of spectators.

- It is however no secret that there was a considerable bitterness in Prince Knud towards the rest of the DRF.
And that it was Count Ingolf of Rosenborg who, despite being cursed with a looks like a village idiot is no fool at all, was instrumental in reconceiling the two branches of the family. - But they still don't associate much.

I think Mary and Marie get along nicely. Athena has clearly got hand-me-downs from Josephine (the pink snowsuit) and these pictures of the two of them trying to work the opera glasses were so lovely. But as I recall that one of them (M, F, J or M) said, there's a long way from Schackenborg to Amalienborg, so they don't see each other a lot.

I think the two princesses realize they have very different interests. Mary - the sporty/outdoorsy type and Marie interested in other things. So I would imagine there main topic of conversation is how the children are getting on. Just a guess.

What exactly are Marie's (other) very different interests? And which of them does Mary not have?

I know Marie likes dogs, children and socializing. So does Mary.
But what makes you think "the two princesses realize they have very different interests"?
