I feel so proud when I hear her speak Danish, because I really feel that she put an effort into learning our language which is kinda hard to learn & then I think that her accent is incredibly cute (: I always giggle a little, because it sounds so sweet.

It must be due to her pregnancy. She will be herself again soon but she first needs some time to enjoy her new born ones!

Slightly harsh.
Mary looks beautiful, and not a day over 30.

i really like number 3: the way mary and frederik are both smiling, the similar position which highlights the difference in the colour of their respective eyes, the way frederik is slightly leaning on mary indicating closeness and intimacy, the extracute babies...

You're not serious are you? Mary is Australian and Australian women always look a little older than their age because of the sun. A friend of mine emigrated to Sweden with her husband at the age of 30 and people assumed she was 45. I think Mary looks fantastic - but I wouldn't say she looks 30. By Australian standards she looks 35 and by European standards at least her 38 years.

I'm sure you are just trying to stir up things. You simply can't be serious.

Here is a picture of Dagmar of Denmark or Maria Feodorovna, Empress of Russia

Yes I am serious.
She might be Australian, but she hasn't been there for 7 years, I don't think the sun affects her that much now.
I obviously look at her differently to you.

That's just what I was thinking, and it's funny bc she does take extremely good care of herself nutrition wise and exercize etc. but she is after a birth of fraternal twins which means 2 placentas sucking the nutrition and minerals out of your body. In general Mary does look at least her age if not slightly older and now with the fatigue even more so

CP Frederik is a modern man.
For regardless of whether the assignment states to carry his precious home safely, or to stand his wife bee at her confinement, then the 10th Frederik in the Danish royal line a modern man. A man who is present and engaged in family welfare. And unlike previous generations mantra - children should be seen and not heard - is the country's 42-year-old crown prince deeply involved in his children.

Crown Prince Frederik, who in particular can boast of 'macho' training at the Naval Frogman Corps, is also so much in contact with his soft side that he takes part in the more common shades of everyday life.

Paternity leave
Crown Prince Frederik, who took nearly three weeks of paternity leave in connection with the twin birth is also man enough to admit that maybe it was too little. Asked directly whether he was considering taking maternity leave said Crown Prince:

- Yes, it has since occurred to me.

But where the Crown Prince really consisted manhood test, was his reaction to Princess Mary's answer to the question whether the Crown Prince had been a huge help at birth:

- Invaluable much, with great love. He does everything right.

Frederick's eyes were shining, tears squeezed themselves in and sensitive father of four showed he is a modern man.

It is rather harsh to judge a woman's look one week after having given birth - when all the hormones are freely flowing, you face is puffy still and your dead tired from being up to feed in this case not one but two babies.

Do you really think that Mary normally looks slightly older than her age? I don't I must admit. She does have some lines around her eyes but that's normal even for woman younger than her.

and i would add of course, speaking i think for all the red pants movement, that he has shown how modern a man he is with his latest choices of colourful outfits

Don't forget that photos are photoshopped, too. It's only the candid photos that indicate what we really look like these days! Of course Mary doesn't look a day over 25 with a bit of 'shopping!

I think she looks like she is in her mid 30's, I don't think she looks old. i think she looks very lovely and so does Frederick.

I have always thought and said that Mary has more creases than she should at her age.

Mary dresses nice and she carries herself well, but she is beginning to look like she's hitting her 40s.

I was reading the same about Maxima recently, but please give me these natural women. They could both go out and have surgery and botox like some of their counterparts. Most looks like they find it hard to smile.

Once again I am going to say the twins are so cute, I hope Mary and Fred have had some sleep.
