She is younger and has vibrant red hair. How well does she get along with Mary?

They must get along very well... otherwise I doubt that the new lady in waiting (apart from her quite pretty and attention grabbing red-hair) has worn, at least on some of the pictures posted here, more colorful outfits than the Crown Princess....Ussually, a lady-in-waiting will wear something less elaborate or colorful than who she attends: in more lay-man's terms: the brides' maids shouldn't upstage the bride... or however that saying goes... :)Princess Mary is hard to upstage, because not only is she given the place and precedence in all events, but she does look quite beautiful in her own right - however, I would have to say that her new lady-in-waiting should perhaps tone it down a bit to the more discreet glamour of the CPss... I do imagine, however, that they must have a good relationship. From what I understand, Mrs. Herring is the wife of the CP's friend - I imagine they must have met and shared "off-duty" time together and become friends before the appointment... hopefully they have a good run :)PS What-ever did happen to the elegant previous hofdame though? Was her term of service up? Did she resign? Is she on a rota with the new hofdame and will come again into service every-other year? Hope someone has a bit of info on the matter...PSS Is this a paid job or merely honorary and having a stipendium for incurred expenses?

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.
i think it depends to each royal house how ladies in waiting are chosen. i think maxima, for example, always had this woman of certain age with her, just as mary had hofdame victoria before caroline. i guess some houses allow the princesses to choose their l-i-w after they have for a certain time the ones the king/queen chooses, or some other princesses just stay with the assigned one for a long time (or at least until they are queens consort, and they can choose their own ones by themselves). again, it all depends on which court we are talking about. i guess if they were all allowed to choose them, practically all of them would choose young l-i-w...

Do we know the reason why the previous lady in waiting left - Victoria?
Is it a common practice that each lady in waiting only serves for a few years and moves on?

It seems to differ; I think that QMII has (have) had ladies in waiting who have been with her for many years. In this link http://www.kongehuset.dk/artikel.php...aktuelt_presse (sorry, only in Danish) you can read that QMII's younger sister Benedicte just had a new L-I-W announced this January. Her former L-I-W had been with her since 1990.
I cannot be sure, but I would guess that Mary's first L-I-W was a deliberate choice, perhaps by QMII, as being the one to sort of ease Mary into the type of engagements she will be doing and that Mary would then eventually choose one herself - just like QMII and her sister Benedikte do.
Victoria may also have wanted to only carry out this job for a limited period.

I have moved the posts discussing the Monograms of the Danish Royal Family to the (renamed) Danish Orders & Monograms thread.

Mary's new lady in waiting looks gorgeouse in this very short clips She also seems to know what/when she should wear. I think she has a "model looked", if I don't know who is the royal I will spot her with her red head and a good silhouete before spot on Mary. http://www.infocast.dk/eb/mediamaker.php?id=2020 (post by Larzen). I think Mary is happy to have a new LIW who is not very diffrent in age and has simmilar situation (mother of young infant) and perhaps they have same interest in fashion thing. BTW, does anybody know how tall she is?

I read elsewhere that Victoria's job was only going to be for 2 years.

Mrs. Heering was appointed lady-in-waiting on March 1. Mrs. Bernstorff-Gyldensteen resigns from her position on April 30, just as it has been planned since her appointment two years ago.

For more excellent indepth information on both ladies-in-waiting, go to the magnificent site of Danish Royal Watchers: http://danishroyalwatchers.blogspot.com/ (read post: "Changeover of Mary's lady-in-waiting")

I really like Mary's new lady-in-waiting, Catherine. I think she's beautiful and it looks like she thoroughly enjoys what she's doing. It seems like she's a good friend to Mary too and gives her support. I hope we see more of Catherine, I'm sure we will. :)

Caroline is very beautiful, but don't you think she should be mucht more low profile than she is?I think sometimes we can get really confused and ask who is the princess??????

Ive read these comments before, but I dont see her (Caroline) taking a high profile in any of the pictures i've seen. Is there any picture or article that shows this behavior of her? i will appreciate to see them.

Caroline with her stunning looks will simply not fade into the background even if required. She may not seek the attention but she will get it anyway - a beautiful redhead will never go un-noticed.
