i hope caroline still attends at least some events with mary! it's always adorable to see her.

what do we know about tanja elise? i never heard her name before (when caroline was announced as the LIW she was already known as one of mary's best friends...). i would have expected other ladies in a similar position to caroline as the new LIW, helle reedtz, julie molsgaard or brigitte handwerp.

She is quite young. Her husband Chris is a good friend of Frederik & joachim, the couple attended Isabella's chrestiningI read on another forum that she lived in New York for some years before moving back to Denmark.

Man, time flies. I didn't realize that the LIW position was only for 2 years. But I still can not believe that it has already been 2 years that Caroline has been Mary's LIW. It's very nice that Caroline will become Mary's private secretary and not just be let go.

I think Caroline will also be very busy as a board of trustee for the Mary Foundation so I'm sure we will still be seeing her around with all her different responsibilities as private secretary/lady-in-waiting/trustee of Mary Foundation.

I agree with Ayvee. She is on the board of Trustees which is a lot of work. She is also her secretary and will occasionally fill in still as lady in waiting. Plus she has a young family too. So she has plenty on her plate!

Has Crownprincess Mary already had a private secretary before Caroline Heering? And if the answer is "yes" - what happend to the former private secretary? And if the answer is "no" - is it possible in the Danish Royal Family to create a new "job-position" without the agreement of the parliament?

Do you mean Caroline Heering? Because Caroline will now be Mary's private secretary, and will occasionally be a L-I-W for Mary.

I look forward to seeing more of the new LIW. I wonder how one is chosen for the position. Is there an inside application process ie women of a certain rank or friends of Mary and Fred and quietly informed that they are being considered? It's very interesting. I'm sure with Tanja's background in PR, she is more than qualified. I wonder if they will be as close as Mary and Caroline.

In the official Crown Prince Couple site,D.K.H. Kronprinsparret - Deres Kongelige Højheder Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessens Hofstat,
there are two secretary positions:
Chefsekretær Anne Grethe Høffner
Sekretær Charlotte Hoff-Clausen
but these two work for the couple.
So Caroline will be Princess Mary's first private secretary.

I think the DRF is given money/budget from parliament but it is the DRF's decision on how they use the money to hire their own staff.

We also don't know how they are going to divide work between the private secretaries. Caroline could be handeling more personal correspondance and gifts and best wishes sent by the general public. The other two could do official, patraonages and royal personal duties. By that I mean visiting Sweden or Grasten etc. They prob also communitcate with eveyone elses private secretaries too.

Is this right that Mary's new LIW is only black LIW or there any others too? For me it's shows absolute respect and I think it's very nice. Also I would like to know about first LIW (older lady) - what she's doing now?

I suppose it would be very difficult to refuse/decline the position of LIW. You would probably be ousted from the inner circle.

The first lady in waiting Victoria is home with her family. She does charity work and I believe is a friend of the Queen. I also thought I read at some point her husband had taken ill. But I cannot be sure it was her. I know she wanted to spend time with her family and at her home, which I believe is not near Copenhagen.

Will there be a special ceremony for Caroline Heering or the new lady-in-waiting?

No there is no ceremony to be lady in waiting. It is a job, not a title.
