I know! And lets just remember that we don't personally know any of these royals so we can't really say what their personal tasts are like.
Maybe Mary prefers embroidery, lace and fine little details on her clothes, but with her jewelry she sticks to simple and classical choices. Sort of a foil for her trendier and much more detailed clothing. Just my opinion though.

Oh my I think I've landed in a strictly Mary fan zone (just kidding) All I meant was that when I first saw her engagement ring, I didn't think it was something sooo fabulous as her position would dictate, please don't go on another pro-mary tangen, it's really enough up untill now yes I can see she is classy etc. I just have memories when I was a girl how everyone went gaga over Dianas engagement ring, and how special and unique Maxima's ring is. and I was just voicing my opinion, which I am entitled to...

Several posts discussing CP Mary's law degree have been moved to the "Crown Princess Mary's Education: Subject; School..." thread so that we can keep this discussion on track.

Happy posting!

I was sorry to read that Hello Magazine featured this story of an altered pre-nuptual agreement. All embarrassment couldbe erased if the Queen and Prince Consort would give Mary a house in Tasmania, now, for vacations and in lieu of jewelry.

I wish that the Danish Royal's legal team would have advised the crownprincely couple before their marriage to ensure that this kind of indiscretion did not occur. All of Fred's personal assests should have been up for grabs nothing belong to the crown. Any increased income that came with the crown upon his descent to the throne should have been assessed and soem arrangement should have been made to duly compensate Mary if they were to divorce. I believe personally that any royal man, especially crown princes and princesses should provide for their spouses upon divorce to keep them on a tie leash and to make sure that as a result of their marriage no undo harm occurs or embarrasment comes their way.

Keeping a spouse on a "tie leash" and heavily dependant on the whim of an ex-husband is what divorce courts in Australia and I suspect elewhere have been trying to avoid.
It is the reason that courts favour one of splits in the marrital assets and them both going their seperate ways rahter than ongoing maintenance for years and years.
The exception if maintenance of children and here there are many instances of assets and income being hidden and the parties squabbling and fighting.

I guess royal divorces are just the same old game but at least one of the parties has the choice to run to a journalist friend and "play to the audience" and if the other party follows suit then we have Charlie & Di II.

It's better that the spouse is financially independant of her ex's family (like Alexandra) with title, status and public profile in line with her discrete and professional handling of the divorce.
