She looks like a gorgeous and elegant lady with class. I've read somewhere that she is a countess.

Alexandra used to have two ladies-in-waiting for a time period.

Hofdame, oberstinde Annette de Scheel
That&#39;s sounds like a Dutch name to me. [/b][/quote]
It&#39;s an old Danish-German nobel-family, the name is pronunced "skeel"

Have taped the whole wedding, when did they mention her? I would like to see what she looks like.
I wish I could see the wedding although I wouldn&#39;t understand a word&#33;&#33;--I taped the Spanish Royal Wedding, but there is a large hispanic population here in the USA. That wedding service I could understand--Spanish and French were my Major and Minor in college :woot:

I think that&#39;s Victoria Lensgrevinde Bernstorff-Gyldensteen, Mary&#39;s lady-in-waiting, walking behind her in this picture.

Well .... I don&#39;t think any young &#39;spring chicken&#39; would do, to be assigned to guiding the newly installed crown princess through her first two years in office.

Obviously takes tact and experience to explain to a foreigner why things should happen a certain way.

The Silkeborg pony event was the first official engagement for Crown Princess Mary&#39;s lady-in-waiting - notice the light blue bow with Mary&#39;s monogram on her left shoulder

Crown Princess Mary and her Lady-In-Waiting Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen.

Will Mary&#39;s lady-in-waiting accompany her to Greenland?

And does Frederik have something like a lady-in-waiting (squire? I have no idea)?

Do ladies-in-waiting get paid? Do they live in the palace? Probably not - so how often do they visit?

Mary's lady in waiting is very pretty. She has a lot of elegance and grace. I love her clothes too. I'm sure she is of great help to Mary.

Does princess Alexandra still have a lady in waiting now that she is divorced from Jochim? She still attends official functions and is a part of some charities is she not?

Alexandra does not have a hofdame anymore. She is entitled to her secretary acting as a lady in waiting. ALso CP Mary's hofdame is American and can speak English with Mary as well as help Mary with her Danish because the lady in waiting is married to a Danish nobleman, I believe.

Countess Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen was born as Cynthia Victoria Ames. She comes from the USA, but moved to Denmark when she married the Count (I posted a picture of him in an earlier post above). They have two children – Peter Alexander and Eric Johan.

Thanks Linda for your response!
I'm guessing whether its a secretary, personal assistant or lady in waiting its all more or less the same thing. Just one more question, is her secretary paid for by the crown?

Lashinka2002,

Her secretary is paid out of the money that the Danish government is paying to Alexandra for her fufillment of royal duties for the crown. I read also that the reason that the Queen gave Alexandra the title Countes of ? (cannnot remember) is for the eventuality of a possible remarriage of Princess Alexandra. This title will give her an identity as she is the mother of two princes who are in line to the throne. I also think that QMII is smart to maintain a good working relationship with Alexandra because she is the mother of the Queen's 2 grandchildren. I admire the way the Danish Royal family has handles this particular situation. I think that QMII learned a big lesson from her British cousins in how to handle divorce. I also further maintain that the Danish press is deplorable in how they are digging up "dirt" on Alexandra and Joachim now. I do understand that it is the same as the gutter press here in the U.S. but I think that the Danish press should take heed and not repeat the same thing that happened to Diana. It would be a shame to have Princess ALexandra and Prince Joachim learn to live in fear of the press. I have heard that the monarchy in Denmark is very close to the people. It would be a shame to comprimise this wonderful institution by making it retreat behind the walls of the castles as the British Royal family has done so well these last many years.

Just my opinions. Have a great rest of the day/night

Linda 85
