Other Than The British Royal Family, The American Media Were Fascinated With The Danish Royal Family

About eight different news stations in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. aired clips of the Danish royal wedding. More media coverage was given to the Danish royal couple than the Norwegian and Dutch. If I remember correctly, only two news stations aired the wedding of the Norwegian Crown Prince and the Dutch Crown Prince. It was BBC World News and German Journal. Well actually, it's three. Last night 20/20 aired a clip of the Norwegian royal wedding.
MSNBC had a good length story about the wedding as well. I saw it this morning. I am sure it was on last night as well.

Two questions about two guests:

I did not see any pictures of Phillippos of Greece. Did he not attend his maternal cousin's wedding? Will he be in attendance at his paternal cousin's wedding in Spain this upcoming Saturday?

What is the realationship between Roger Moore and the Danish royals? He seems to attend many important events with the Danish royals, such as baptisms and now the Crown Princely wedding.


Is it just me or have the guests formed a heart-shape for Frederik and Mary to dance in? Heart dance

Hello everyone, today I've read a strange article in a spanish newspaper: El mundo, it says that Mary's family (which are medium class ones and do not have lots of money for this kind of event) did a loan to buy the tickets, clothes and everything they needed to be able to assist to this event. The one that was interviewed was the husband of one of her sisters. It is a very weird thing.

Yes, they did. The courtiers or guards are whatever they are called had the people get into a heart before the bride and groom came into the room.

I wonder if they'll do the same thing to find out how Letizia's grandparents afforded their outfits for the upcoming wedding.

that article is posted somewhere on this board. Mary's brother said something along the lines of having to morgage his house to pay for the travel expenses. It is a very sad thing. You would think that the royal family would help them pay for some of the expenses. Surely they have the funds available to do so. It is very sweet however, that Mary's family was willing to do such a thing in order to be a part of her big day.

Your posts didn't 'disappear.' As they didn't originally mention the Danish wedding extensively, they were moved to Royal Chit Chat, and a thread called Royals on 20/20 which is about last night's show.

Can anyone translate this for me? I think it is a link to buy the official dvd of the wedding, but I'm not sure? What prices are they quoting? And why are there 4 dvd options?

We have had the wedding, and I personally thought it was beautiful. We have also seen the dress, pictures of which is scattered in various threads.

But I would like your opinion about the dress. Here in Sydney, Alex Perry, a designer said that the wedding dress was "all hideous, really" (I personally don't think much of this designer btw :P ) while dressmaker Luci Dibella siad that it was "regal and classic".

What's your thoughts??

O yes, forgot my opinion :P .

I thought it was very regal, very beautiful, and quite conservative. Except for the cut of the neckline, it was a traditional gown as opposed to a modern gown. The colour and the material was sooooo very lovely... it was exactly how it has been described, like that of a mother of pearl colour. All in all, very beautiful but at the same time unexpected because Mary seems to be quite modern. I think this shows that she is quite traditional in some ways. Well, her views on fidelity and marriage as shown in the Politiken article is indeed quite traditional . So yeah, a bit unexpected because I expecter her to be in something modern and flashy.

I really loved the skirt - I can&#39;t get over the beautiful folds, and the veil - is it only me or does anyone else think it looks Spanish?? I have seen the Infantas wearing veils when they visited the Pope and it reminds me of that.

I liked it&#33; Thought it was a very pretty wedding gown...classic, but still modern... and she looked so pretty in it...but then again every bride looks beautiful in their wedding dress on their wedding day. Bottom line...perfect dress, perfect wedding and perfect couple&#33; Such a beautiful wedding&#33; :flower:

Hi,
I&#39;ve ordered from it also,and a friend of mine help me with it,
First you have to choose whether you want to buy 1 DVD or 2 DVD&#39;s, etc.

Then, you give your name (Navn),Full Address(adresse),Postal No.State and Country(Postnr.og Buy),and your Email.

Hope that will help you.

I thought she looked nice. I especially liked the sleeves with the sleeve cut around the elbows.

Where did little Prince Nicolai and Count Richard sit during the ceremony? I didn&#39;t see them there, but just coming and leaving. The litle girsl were sitting on the first bench, but the boys were nowhere. Are there pictures of the little ones?
I believe they were sitting in the second row on the grooms&#39; side with their nannies. If you go to http://www.princessalexandradk.com/LINKS.htm you&#39;ll find links there from the wedding... the videos dont show them sitting down but you can see in one of them that they&#39;re heading towards the second row...also there&#39;s pics of them here http://www.princessalexandradk.com/Mary%20...s%20Wedding.htm and at the nikolai thread here. Hope that answers your questions&#33;

First of all let me say that I know nothing about dresses, let alone weddingdresses. When that is said, I must admit that I found the dress to be very beautiful. The absolute nightmare would have been if she had been wearing one of those meringue-looking dresses that were popular some years ago. Nope it was definately very beautiful and yes regal.
