To me, even if she has a chair, she shouldn't be there, this is the one time she can be a woman rather than a princess. Even Queen Elizabeth II missed two state opening og parliaments when she was pregnant.
She might not be ill or have a disease, but she is carrying twins.

Everyone says she'll give birth earlier than her due date, which would be December time. Which puts her out.
I just think that she'll do what she thinks it's the best for her. She's obviously not eager to endanger the pregnancy.

Yes, I, too, think Mary is a sensible person that she knows what is the best for her. Besides, she has such an ideal husband. That is such a reassurance !

Mary is carrying two children not one this time and wasn't Isabella predicted for a May birth?

The official announcement for Prince Christian said "by the end of October", he was born on October 15.
The official announcement for Isabella said she was due about the first week of May. She arrived within 10 days of that (2 weeks either side of the due date is considered to be right on time in obstetrics).

In fact, Frederik and Mary have not manipulated the information about their older children's due dates by months, as many other royal couples have done.

The announcement about the twins said "some time in January."
For some reason people immediately reinterpret this to mean another time.

My guess is that the twins are due at the end of January, and will arrive some time in January.
I also think the fact that twins are usually early was factored into the official announcement.

I anticipate that Crown Princess Mary will attend the events of the New Year's Court if all is well.
Women who start maternity leave are not under house arrest, after all.

Has anyone said that Mary and Frederik have manipulated information?

Twins are usually born early, so if "January" has been given as the due month, she will more than likely give birth in December. We don't "reinterpret", both Isabella and Christian were born early. So we can safely assume the twins will.

If Mary went on maternity leave in March for a May birth, and that was with one baby. I would think with twins she would go on maternity leave in November.

No they are not under house arrest, but not every woman is the Crown Princess of Denmark carrying two royal children.

I guess Mary will know herself when to start her maternity leave or will follow the advice of her doctors. No big deal. Though I would love to see her and her tummy on the New Year engagements I would understand when she skips them for the sake of her own and her babies’ health. Maybe we will be lucky enough to see her during some easy-going engagements which are not so stressful for her. But if she decides to disappear from the public eye until the babies are born I would totally understand her anyway. Yes, she is a crown princess but still, she has a earthly human body that will demand for her to rest as anybody else's body would demand from a pregnant woman of her age.
I for myself can't wait to see the babies. We know already that Mary and Fredrik are able to produce cute babies so there is lots of hope that these two will be gorgeous as well :-)

Twins are not necessarily born early at all & whether its twins or not any baby can be born early.
At the end of the day, a Dr gives you an approximately due date which in many cases, the baby comes early, on the date or a few days later. The date the couple give us I think is the rough due date by the Dr.

In general Royal Houses will try to be as vague as possible and often they give a later date in order to deflect attention. Adding to that, pregnancies are hard to predict, especially with twins where the doctors tend to take action early rather than late.
My guess is that it will be earlier than January, on the other hand Mary doesnt look that pregnant to me at this stage, then again each pregnancy shows different, I remember a picture of tennis player Steffi Graf only days before giving birth, if you didnt know you wouldnt have noticed that she was pregnant at all, finally giving birth to quite a big boy.

I get the impression that the intense pressure on Mary means that she keeps dieting during pregnancy and stays unnaturally thin, which is at least as much of a health risk I'm afraid. Mary's not a naturally thin person, you can tell from her "bonny" early photos. I think that's a real indictment of the Danish press - even though they are supposedly kind to her. In this paparazzi age, not many of us would be prepared to get fat and less attractive under the glare of flashbulbs, and while Mary looks sweet and natural in casual clothes no matter what her weight, her job means she has to dress up, which in Mary's case seems to require a svelte figure for her to look fabulous.

Unnaturally thin during pregnancy? If that was indeed the case, then both Christian and Isabella would have been born with serious health problems! The fact is that both Christian and Isabella were healthy newborns, almost the same birth weights of Leonor and Sofia whose mother, Princess Letizia had a much bigger baby bump than Mary.
All women do not have huge baby bumps during pregnancy and Mary appears to be one of those women. And the fact that CP Mary has maintained her official duties during her twin pregnancy is testimony to the excellent health she is obviously in IMHO!

Terri Terri thanks for your reply! The sorts of issues that arise from expectant mothers dieting surface later in life, so we wouldn't observe anything from the earlier pregnancies. Sorry, i stand by my assertion that Mary feels under some kind of pressure to stay thin and look fabulous, and the press are largely to blame ...

I wasn't really refering to Mary's dieting or weight loss/gain during pregnancy. I was refering more to more common pregnancy related problems - one or more babies being breech, pre-eclampsia, placenta abruption, preterm delivery, etc. And most OB docs don't advise traveling in the last month or two of a pregnancy.

I don't believe that she is dieting during pregnancy. She may adhere to the official pregnancy advice in Denmark which is to be conscious of what you are eating - meaning don't binge on fatty foods you'll regret it afterwards and it does nothing for your unborn child. I think public opinion here does not expect a pregnant princess to stay unnatural thin.
The fact is that different women carry their pregnancies differently. Some of us get big as a house while others carry their pregnancies more hidden for some reason depending on the way we are built. Mary carries her more hidden than some. But she shows signs other places; with Isabella she became noticably fuller in the face.

I agree UserDane

I think also, with each pregnancy, a mothers body adapts to the process of bearing a child differenty.

I don't just think it's the press...she is the patron of a number of health organisations, heart disease, childhood obesity, etc...So maybe it is pressure to be a good role model, you can't tell people that obesity is bad for your health and have people believe it, if you are overweight yourself....I also think it is a budgetary consideration, stay thin so you can fit into and recycle your expensive, good quality clothes...Of course, she does by new stuff all the time, but she also wears alot of her old stuff and it never ceases to amaze me that she can still do it..

I think its unfair to say Mary might be dieting or so during pergnancy, a few people who will read this in the future who might be pregnant will think she actually is and they will follow. Some women tend to put on some more weight than others but that doesnt mean who dont put on much weight that they are dieting. Actually many Dr's do tell you it is healthy to gain a certain amount of weight but if you gain more its not that bad as you sometimes can not control it.

I personally think it's possible she could be dieting, or just eating very carefully in order to gain as little as possible, for various reasons. She does seem unnaturally thin to me, and she didn't seem that way with her other two children. However, I don't think it's possible to say so with certainty, because it's equally possible that her lesser weight this time is just due to random changes in her body.
