Funny you say that, I've been thinking the same about joachim - an excellent crown prince he would make, in so many ways!

And, and this may sound totally twisted, I know, but as for a crown princess, in recent years Mary, of all people, has shown some real growth and strength as a CP.

She's made some interesting progress in that her choices of things she attaches her name to, are often ones that other CP's or others in general, would deem controversial, i.e. making a statement against bullying, depression, etc.
In her own quiet way, over the past years she's really shown some clout! Now if only Joachim had been CP and Mary his spouse..would have been really interesting. No offense to Marie! But she just doesn't seem as visionary as Mary! And Fred, well, he's a good guy but no visionary either!

Back on topic, as Joachim proved today, on top of everything he can look like a prince from a Disney story book!

And why is that may I ask?! Was it because he was so incredibly emotional like his brother at his wedding or is it because he may or may not look better in his uniform?

You should read the response from Larzen.

Ithink Princess Marie was a wonderful bride and to me her dress was perfect. It may not be original but not many brides will look as royal and proud as her in the same kind of dress. She carried herself very well and it couldn't been easy for her. Thumbs up for elegance and good taste!!!

Granted I can't speak for others, but my two cents is that Joachim is the spitting image of his mother, physically not only, but mentally as well. Which means to say he is someone who is mentally visionary, intellectual, and creative, the last part in Joachim's case embodied in his vision for, and work on, his farm and agriculture. Creativity comes in many forms, and Joachim has it in spades.

Yes he looks good, but moreover he is very very eloquent and articulate in a way his older bro cannot even dream of ever achieving. Just from Joachim's interview with Marie, he had these explanations and theories on how to introduce his sons to his new love and incorporate the two into one entity that would make everyone happy. And explaining it as he did, he showed a keen ability to abstract thinking and vision that his brother either doesn't have or can't articulate well to the media.

Joachim seems to be a deep thinker as well as a creative doer and that combo of talents would work well in any white collar profession not least the role of CP.

Don't worry! We have Kate Middleton's dress to look forward to.
This dress was the perfect choice for Marie. She does not even take chances in her everyday wear from what I have seen so far. Her clothes have been ho-hum up til now - maybe she isn't consumed by the latest fashion. Maybe this will change ...

Marie's dress is so beautiful! Simple, with the lace is really suited to her IMO. She and Joachim looked so happy

As for the other women, Margrethe wasn't as flashy as I thought she would be Mary looked fantastic, one of the thoughts I had was that she would wear a pale blue colour and she did! Mette-Marit and Victoria both looked great also, but Vicky - please, for the sake of mankind, melt that tiara down! Martha-Louise looked as if she was wearing a sack, the colour was nice, but the design did absolutely nothing for her shape. Carina, Carina, Carina - in a tiara no less! Made my day!

A very interesting indepth analysis of someone... thanks for offering your opinion.



Moving on, the entire wedding was simply beautiful and very romantic. Marie looked sweet. I loved Mary's gown... she looked ravishing. It was lovely to see Victoria, Natalie, Mette Marit, Carina, and the Greek girls. Though I will say Princess Benedikte looked fantastic. I love her tiara.

I loved Marie's overall look. The dress was rather ordinary but nice still.
I think the best part was that she had the sparkle.
And like many others, I enjoyed Joachim crying and hugging his boys

Yes I noticed that as well. It seemed as if he was telling her not yet.

Does anyone have a pic of Carina in her tiara?

What a treat to get a rare glimpse of Prince Phillipos of Greece at the wedding of Prince Joachim & Princess Marie. He's incorrectly identified at Nikolas in this picture but its definitely Phillipos. He's a cross between Pavlos and Nikolas. Nikolas was incorrectly identified as Pavlos and Tatian and Marie-Chantal. The difference between Phillipos and Nikolas? Phillipos wearing a red sash and Nikolas wearing light blue.

Philippos is wearing the Royal Order of George I, while Nikolaos is wearing the Order of the Redeemer.
