I couldn't agree more.
And this doesn't only apply to Mary but also to the women in her company who were labeled as "bond girls" and "rich&bored". I wonder if that poster actually knows who they are and what they do. But no matter, just go on judging...

Also, it seems to me those who are always fast to judge are most interested in fashion themselves. At least they are commenting on dresses they like or dislike most of the time and not so much about e.g. the newest project of The Mary Foundation. But I won't be so shallow as to judge them by their posts.

Thank you for these, they are wonderful to see. I am always amazed at how well the DRF handled the divorce, they all really came out of it looking good. On a side not the height difference between Alex and Mary is very evident in these photographs, I knew Alex was on the smaller side but I never knew just how much smaller than Mary she was.

Does anyone know who the woman in grey is? Was she with Mary or Alexandra? I don't see a L-I-W pin.

Looks like countess Helle Redtz-Thott of Gavnø castle (some of the first pictures of Frederik and Mary together at a wedding - Mary wearing the coral coloured silk dress - were from Helle and Otto Redz-Thott's wedding which took place at the church at Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød)

How do we really know if they are friends from these pictures? Good luck to them if they are, that's great....but what was either of them going to do if they just happened to be at the same place at the same time...Mary was going to turn up her nose, ignore Alexandra and just walk off in huff (Imagine the headlines!!! Mary snubs Alexandra at CIFF, Oh dear!!!)....Of course not, she's a grown up, whatever her (real) feelings are she would have just made polite small talk as princesses (and ex-princesses) do, about the weather, the kids, the fashions they've seen today and then politely take their leave...Then depending on their true relationship depends on what she said to Helle as they walked off (What a nightmare seeing her again! Let's go! or How wonderful to see Alexandra again, I must make arrangements to catch up with her another time...)

I love to speculate as much as the next person but some happy snaps at a fashion show sometimes do not always tell the real story and sometimes we never will know the true story...

Please excuse my ignorance, but is the countess Danish? I remember Mary wearing the coral dress, but I wasn't aware of whose wedding she was attending. Was the countess attending the event with Mary or Alexandra (or was she there on her own)?

AFAIK Mary and the Countess are good friends, so she was probably attending with Mary. I think that Mary is godmother to her son. I don’t know if the Countess is Danish or not but I have never heard that she wasn’t so…..

Yes, Helle is Danish.
I think she lived in Hillerød in North Zealand - which was why the wedding took place at Frederiksborg Castle.

I belive you're right Amelia - that Mary is godmother to one of Helle's young sons. She had a baby girl by the way around christmas

Thank you Amelia and UserDane! The Countess is very beautiful. Is she part of the DRF? Congratulations to the Countess on the birth of her new baby.

Helle is not part of the danish royal family. Do you mean if she works for them? Because to the best of my knowledge she doesn't. She's just part of Mary's inner circle. Her husband is one of Frederik's good friends and I believe that is how she and Mary met.

i've never seen alexandra looking so unkept. that hair, i can see bobby pins, assorted clips and it looks like her hair wasn't combed before she put them in. no offense meant (i like alex) but next to the other polished ladies around her, she seems to have to come to the show after mowing her yard without changing. she's usually so well dressed i'm kinda disappointed.

i hope they have a nice relationship for the kids sake, it makes it so much easier on everybody if they can stay friendly, i don't expect "best friend" kind of thing, just cordial and polite with open communication as the photos suggest.

I think all concerned keep it very friendly. For Alex and Mary there is no reason to be unkind to each other. I doubt they were close as Alex was leaving the family when Mary was coming in. But I'm sure they interacted. And they are all adults. I'm glad to see they act like it.

As far as Alex's appearance, I have noticed the same thing for some of her appearances where she does not look good. But I doubt she uses a stylist or hairdresser anymore. Personally, she does not strike me as a person who thinks her looks are important or has knowledge in that area. But when you are in the public eye. Everything is important. All of us will slip up on occassion but hopefully not too often.

I didn't realise there was that much height difference between the pair before.

I love that picture she looks like she's having a lot of fun.
Great finding, I love this picture. Mary is a very nice human being, IMO and a very inspiring one. Everytime I see this princess I just see gentleness and genuinity. I'm not having much time right now to post but when I come to the forum I love to see Mary's pictures, so thanks everyone for them
