So the ladies-in-waiting are paid out of the royal family money? Who choose the ladies-in-waitings?

You are right that she looks very elegant. She has a similar situation with Mary that once she was a foreigner before maried a Danish noble-man then she can share her experience how to cope well in her new country to Mary, that will be very helpful for Mary:).

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

Princess Alexandra's new title is Countess of Frederiksborg.

Maybe CPM has been taking strong fashion advices from her lady-in waiting as she developed her style into what it looks like today.

Mary's Lady-in-Waiting is Countess Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen, she is married to Count Frants Erich Bernstorff-Gyldensteen.

It's explained in the previous page of this thread. :)

I believe Alexandra is still a princess. Her title is HH Princess Alexandra, Countess of Fredriksbourg. I believe she lost the title Her Royal Highness (HRH) upon the divorce. So as princess and a countess she outranks just a countess. If I'm incorrect I'm sure someone will know.

But Mary's lady in waiting is very chic. She once wore leather pants on an outing with Mary and looked great!

Mary and her lady-in-waiting must have developed a close bond because mary must depend on her for a lot of things such as advice. Also she is a foreigner as well so she would be helping her adjust.

Alexandra is Her Highness Princess Alexandra, Countess of Fredriksborg (??)...if she remarries, she will lose the "Her Highness Princess" title and become just a Countess

Does she replace Victoria as a lady in waiting, or does Mary now have 2 ladies in waiting?

Does anyone have a clear pic of the monogram that the different ladies in waiting wear? What material are they made of?
In russia the imperial monogram was in diamonds (a friend of mine just sent me a pic of a most-beautiful one... I have to scan it in the proper thread, and I'll link it here, in case anyone should like to see that one also...)

It seems that the Danish princesses (Alex & Mary) both chose people from their age groups, from their own generation, to be their ladies-in-waiting. Good for them, I'd have done exactly the same. In contrast, if I remember correctly, Maxima of the Netherlands's lady in waiting is a woman 'of a certain age', closer seemingly in age to Maxima's mother in law than to Maxima herself.

Which makes me wonder, and I guess it's different for each royal house, how the various members of royal families, especially the 'newer' ones like Mary, pick their person-in-waiting? Wonder what the process is, etc.
Sorry if this has b een asked before, but I'm just curious.

Especially as princess Alexandra once remarked in an interview how lonely the job can be, hence how nice it is one can share it with a sort-of colleague-on-the-job, i.e. the lady-in-waiting. So in other words, to these princesses, having a lady in waiting who they can relate to, seems critical.
