Both Caroline Heering and Tanja Doky will be busy in each role. Tanja especially when Mary's maternity leave ends in about six months or so from now.
So the big question is whether Mary will need another LiW, or whether Caroline will step in from time to time, when Tanja is unable to be LiW.
Not least because M&F will take over more and more just within the next few years.

Queen Margrethe has four LiWs.

Prince Henrik has basically retired, except for state affairs, he has more or less openly declared it.
QMII has left some jobs to M&F in the last couple of years, where it would have been more natural that the Regent Couple at least attended.
Two of the recent events were the 500th anniversary of the navy, where M&F attended the gala, and the Regent Couple were not even present, even though QMII is after all the commander in chief.
The same thing for the Airforce anniversary recently. That was left entirely to the CP couple.
I don't think QMII will abdicate, but I believe M&F will quietly take over, sooner rather than later. And then one day, say two years from now, M&F will be the de facto regent couple.
It would be a good idea, I think, with a gradual transition, when the time comes it will be a much more smooth transition for M&F from being the CP couple to the regent couple.

Caroline Heering has just turned 40 and she was celebrated Saturday, while M&F were in Gråsten. But as the Heering's and M&F have just been on vacation together they have probably already wished her happy birthday.

Billed Bladet #36, informs us that Mary's LiW, Tanja Doky turned 40 recently.

Her birthday was celebrated at her home with 50 guests, it is presumed M&F took part.

Tanja Elise Kjærsgaard Doky was born and raised in central Jutland.
She has a bachelor in modern languages and speaks fluent Spanish.
She has been Mary's LiW and now also private secretary since 2007.

The court has confirmed that Mary's chamber maid/dresser, Tina Jørgensen, has suddenly died, aged 53.
Ekstra Bladet - Mary i chok: Nr medarbejder pludselig dd
She died Monday in her home.

(The article will be updated).

I know this is not Mary's LiW, but close enough. Tina Jørgensen has worked for Mary since 2004 and as such she was very close to Mary.

ADDED: Jyllands Posten has the same story: http://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/article4892046.ece

Lene Balleby from the court says: "She was a highly treasured associate. Tina was a person full of good mood. She was very discreet and loyal in regards to her job. She was as such also very close to the Crown Princess. A warm personality. Very competent".

AND MORE:
http://www.billedbladet.dk/Kongelige...0i%20sorg.aspx
BB has a picture of Tina Jørgensen.

Tina Jørgensen had no husband nor any children.
It was because she didn't show up for work Monday, that people were concerned and she was later found dead in her home that day.

Tina Jørgensen previously worked for the friend of M&F, Preben Christensen, whose spouse is Mary's hairdresser, Søren Hedegaard.

Tina Jørgensen had worked with Mary Sunday evening at the Lung Association gala, and there were no indications that something was wrong with her.

Linie 3 (Line 3) is a very popular Danish comedy trio, that has performed together for almost 30 years now, I think. Tina Jørgensen worked for them at some point.
One of the members of Linie 3 is Preben Kristensen, who's a friend of Frederik and Mary and whose husband is Mary's hairdresser.

What sad news. My sympathies are with Ms. Jorgensen's family and friends, including Crown Princess Mary. It sounds like she was a lovely woman.

Such sad news, that's way too young an age to die at.
My condolences goes out to her friends and family.

A little more on the death of Mary's chamber maid, Tina Jørgensen: Marys kammerjomfru død: 'Det er synd for de kongelige børn' - Royale | www.bt.dk
Rystet efter dødsfald: Marys kammerjomfru var særdeles vellidt - Royale | www.bt.dk

Søren Hedegaard, Mary's hairdresser and private friend praise Tine Jørgensen highly, not least because he knew her personally.
He says among other things: "There are perhaps many in other countries who will remember her. She was very well liked indeed in the Nordic royal families. She wasn't only there for us in Denmark, she was also the helping hand, when we were visited by our colleagues from Scandinavia. She posessed the discretion and loyalty that her job demanded.
She was like a mother to us all. An octopus with very long arms, who was there for everyone, both the royals, their bodyguards, in short all. She ran from here to the end of the world, moving a stain here, then giving an extra hand there. It was her unique personality that made her (suited as) being the chamber maid of the Crown Princess".

His spouse, Preben Christensen, who is also a friend of m&F, is more worried about the children, with whom Tina Jørgensen was close: "I certainly understand that the DRF is deeply afflicted. She has meant a lot to these people. Not least for the children in the family. She had no childrren herself, but she had an incredible rapport with children. I dare not think how the children are right now".

Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsesse Mary har fået ny kammerjomfru

Mary now has a new chambermaid/Lady's Maid replacing the late Tina Jørgensen.

The new Chambermaid is Lise Møller Jensen and she goes straight from a job as a dresser for the entertainment trio Linie 3, to now sevicing Mary.
She has obviously been employed through Mary's most trusted network. One of the members of Linie 3 is Preben Christensen, and his husband is Mary's hairdresser Søren Hedegaard.
Tina Jørgensen also worked for linie 3.

The new one, Lise Møller, has 25 years of experience within theatre.
I see from the article that Lise Møller will not only be looking after Mary's clothes, she will also assist Mary in the daily running of the private household and in many ways also function as a personal assistant. (There are after all items a royal can't just pop down to the local drug store to fetch and things like that).

ADDED.
As such the chambermaid's functions overlap those of the LiW.
The LiW escort a princess, when on the job.
Apart from reminding the princess about the schedule, who to meet, names and where to go the LiW will also carry personal necessities. Which may be a good idea if the princess has her period, is allergic, has a blistering headache or needs to repair her make-up and so on.
The LiW will also dicreetly ask for a break in the schedule if the princess needs to "wash her hands", get a plaster on her foot, needs to take care of a stain and so on. Which is why we never see a princess ask where the bathroom is.

We have a few more details about Mary's Lady's Maid.

A very small photo: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...ler-jensen.jpg

She started working for Mary on the 10th December.

The former, Tina Jørgensen, had been with Mary since she got married.

What a shock this must be. That's very sad.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #3, 2013.
Marys nye kammerjomfru - Mary's new Lady's maid.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who took up position at Amalienborg on the birthday of the twins and here he spotted Lise Møller Jensen Mary's new Lady's maid, on her way inside Amalienborg.

Lise Møller Jensen has worked for the enyertainment trio Linie 3, in which Preben Christensen is a member. Preben Christensen's husband is Søren Hedegaard, Mary's haidresser. It was also he who introduced Anja Alajdi to Mary.
Lise Møller Jensen has experience working for ten years at the Pantomime Teater in Tivoli, and here she has often met QMII, when she has acted as hobby-scenographer.

Lise Møller Jensen started in her job straight after M&F returned from Hong Kong in December, on that trip Anja Alajdi stepped in as a Lady's maid.
It is assumed Lise Møller Jensen will accompany Mary to the Young Global Leaders conference in Switzerland in a few days.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #39, 2013.

Where a Gitte Jensen would like to know whether Caroline Heering is still a LiW.

Jon Bloch Skipper replies that they are both LiW.

Apart from accompanying Mary on the job they also have a number of additional functions:
Buying items.
Sorting the mail.
Co-ordination various activities.

Apart from that Tanja Doky is Mary private secretary (so it's mostly she who now do the things listed above).
While Caroline Heering is Mary advisor in the Mary Foundation.
