There are laws that define, from which date on you are on maternity leave and each and every employer in Europe would be sued for even trying to break it.
Even suggesting that an employee should come in to work (even in an office) for an hour during maternity leave, as she is still able to shop, can be a reason for a lawsuit.
As also the laws regarding mandatory visits from a midwife to check on the baby after the birth have been adhered with Christian and Isabella, the laws concerning maternity leave will be adhered, too.

When it comes to walking and shopping, I think the CP and her doctors are the best judge. I don't think that CP Mary or any expectant mother would be doing something to put her children in danger.

Brilliant!!

I think the main thing everyone should wish for is that she stays happy and healthy and safely delivers her babies. It's a shame she hasn't participated in the New Year events, but she knows what she can and can't do, and I think everyone would prefer that she got some rest at the expense of seeing her in a nice dress.

Now twins, hurry up and arrive!

So its only the media and royal watchers who are stressing about an impending birth..not the royal couple!
This is very interesting! The reporter is the Channel NINE reporter - and Amber Petty's new partner is Jeff Browne, the multimillionaire managing director of Channel Nine, the flagship of Australia's biggest media empire! I'd be keeping a very close eye on Peter Stefanovic's coverage - he has insider info. And don't doubt it - Amber confessed on Adelaide radio only recently that she cannot keep a secret and had "broken the silence" and told her father Ian Petty about some DRF arrangements - early on, around the wedding - and he of course told the press! So happily for us, Amber has a bit of form when it comes to spilling the beans!

Maternity leave - Copenhagen Capacity
These laws don't apply to the royal family. They are in no ones employment and can, as such decide whatever regarding maternity. When it's called "maternity leave" by the court, it has nothing to do with what it says in some law or what the unions have negotiated. Usually, Mary (or any other of the royals) will be back to work within a few months of the birth, not the usual 9+ months of most other new mothers.

And as such, you can reason that Mary can attend certain functions more freely than the average mom-to-be. The reason she doesn't is most likely that royal functions require a lot of protocol, meaning that Mary can't attend fully anyways, and as such decides to stay away entirely. That she can go shopping is because shopping can be interrupted at will. If she has to go pee she goes peeing. This is less possible in an official function.

Maternity leave means that woman don't have to go to work and for CP that means that she don't have to go to official duties. But there are no reason why she can't go outside for a walk or shopping or church or something like that. And in shop she can be just as she feels but in official duty there are lot of protocol and must-be things and there she can't let her face down when she feels bad or something like that.

This became long and probably already told message but just wanted to say that I don't think that Mary is doing something wrong when she don't take part of new year courts and goes just for outside for a little time...

Ok not the announcement directly, but at the time of the announcement the journalists got that information from the CP office when they asked how long the princess was pregnant

i guess that, reading january, many of us, excited about the twins' arrival, have assumed it would have been early january. but really, it could be the end of the month also.
anyway, if mary was outside shopping and walking it means all is well, which is the most important thing. a double birth is always riskier, so i really wish herm frederik and the babies the best of luck! should be stressing though, with all the media-hype surrounding them...

I did not know she was on the leave. Thank you for explaining.

Officailly, no, you don't. But you cannot tell me you know for sure it would not be an option for Mary. I am not saying I know it would be, I was just curious as to the reason.

I don't know why but this thread has became a bit nasty for me, relevant news and views tend to be shadowed by people who don't really care about the Danish Royal family, yet come here just to criticise EVERYTHING about Crownprincess Mary. Being French, I really love Monaco, but unfortunately I don't even dare to go to their thread simply because 4 or 5 people (always the same) poison interesting news by their hatred for Charlene Wittstock. The same thing seem to happen here, little by little. How can you criticise a pregnant woman, at her last term, and on maternity leave for not attending a New Year GALA??? You didn't know, then check before accusing her to favor a maybe 5 minute shopping to her duty as a Princess.

WOW! A bit harsh, don't you think? I was NOT accusing her of anything, I asked a simple question, to which people responded nicely. Isn't that the point? Questions, suggestions, ideas - where is the accusation in my posts? I did not criticize her, I was simply curious.
You have no idea who I care for and who I don't.
And, as you can see from my previous post, I admitted I did not know she was on maternity leave. But the fact I didn't know doesn't forbid me from asking a question.

I am sorry,but I understood your posts as well as accusations to CP Mary about not attending the Gala but enjoying shopping. Maybe the wording you use or numbers of post and the way you were pointing it, it was read that way. I just am wondering,how any one can be surprised that a pregnant woman at the very end of her pregnancy won't attend formal engagements - I thought that it's just normal and was actually surprised reading your posts. After all she is about to giving birth and not to just one but two Little Ones :)

Because I don't really know when is she due (end of January, beggining?).
Amazing, how a simple question is being read as an accusation.

I think, in general, there is a lot of sensitivity when it comes to the CP couple forums. People are so used to the nastiness that even when a simple question is asked, people's defenses are already up, and things are read far more accusatory than they are actually meant. I have to pause and take deep breaths in the Phillips Baby forums because people seem so incredibly cruel about a n baby's name. I have to remind myself that not only do I not know these people, but I could be completely reading into a post, something that's not there.

That being said, I got caught up in the hype of the babies being born earlier, after reading the headlines when googling CP Mary's name...but I think I am now of the opinion, that they will come when they are going to come, and it's best to just not get all excited by the wait. I wish Mary a healthy labor and delivery, whenever that time may come.

When my sister was close to her due date and desperately wanting to hurry up and have the baby we took her "Black Friday" shopping. That's the day after Thanksgiving here in the US where all the retailers have sales and there are crowds of people all day. The goal was to 'walk her into labor' but she still didn't give birth until Dec 3rd, a week later.

I am excited to see if it will be girls, boys or one of each. All of those options are nice. I loved seeing a photo of Mary and her 'bump' on the crown princess watchers blog page--I peeked!
Another good example of why I love the Royal Forums--good news for a change instead of the bad headlines in regular news.
