She is very lovely. Nice and a little bit shy... on her first day... I wish her luck and fun.

Yes a little shy, she should smile more and be more natural! It's a job not a title!

To be l-i-w is foremost a privilege and an honor. It is not a job you apply for. These positions are reserved for a small group of people that are close to the royal family. Not something you would risk being fired from.

i'm sure its something you have to grow into, it's not normal to have photogs flashing, people yelling, crowding and the focus so close. i'm sure she doesn't want to do anything to embarrass the princess or call attention to herself- part of the job description is to be discreet. it's probably too new to be fun yet, later on i bet she loosens up and we'll see more smiles. she looked lovely and professional and represented Denmark very well imo. it's a very fine honor i wish her all the best.

Who said she thought she had a title? Maybe she's just nervous?

I think the contrary I think she was very well, imo. The one who has to smile and be natural is Princess Mary, the Crown Princess. Her Lady-in-waiting should be discrete and responsable all the time.

Yes she did seema bit shy but isnt that normal on the first day in the public eye with the Cp? She will get used to her role & she should attract any sort of attention away from the Cp, so i think, for her first outing, she did do really well.

Is it a ´real´ job in Denmark? Does she get paid for it?

Why ´of course`? In the UK, Luxembourg, Belgium and The Netherlands the ladies in waiting do not get paid. So it isn´t that logical that in Denmark they would. I am not sure about Norway but I believe that they don´t get paid in Sweden either.

I think they are probably paid considerable expenses, including a wardrobe allowance, but not a wage as such. Mary's first two LIWs have been wealthy women - perhaps the new LIW is paid a wage, because she clearly isn't independently wealthy ...

I said of course because to me that's a job like many others and even if she is wealthy she is working and she must get a salary for that!

It is funny! They look like twins. Same style - different colour...

Adore her look I love black and white cannot stand the new lady in waiting she just doesnot seem to cut the mustard and just hope for an inprovement. I love Mary's hair now it has achieved a better length.

Not sure why you "can't stand" the new L-I-W? Is is because of how she looks? To me, I don't think there is anything remarkable about her. She just blends into the background. To be truthful with you, once I read your post, I actually had to go back and look for her, as I did not see her first time around. She is just a very understated lady. Very boring looking. Quite the contrast from her last L-I-W who sometimes out shone Pr.Mary. But then again, that is just my opinion. Each person is different in regards to how they dress. And maybe she likes being understated but does a great job otherwise?!

I like this new lady-in-waiting. She is pretty, and a little exotic like Princess Alexandra, and she and Mary look good together, since they are similar in size, body type and style, but different too. It seems that they get along well. I always wonder how they coordinate their clothes, since it always seems the lady-in-waiting (this and the previous one) match on style and color.

I noticed the lady-in-waiting has a pin in these pictures. It seems more elaborate (maybe it's just the ribbon) than the usual pin, sort of like the orders the female family members wear in some countries, Demark included.

The LIW wears a gold monogram (M with crown) of Princess Mary with a blue ribbon background to indicate that she is Princess Mary's LIW. Caroline Heering also wears the ribbon with gold monogram when she acts as LIW to Princess Mary.

All other LIWs in Denmark for QMII and Princess Benedikte wear the respective monograms with a blue ribbon.
