That depends on how close you are to the cousin.

An in-law is definitely a relative - "by marriage" means that the person has been brought into your family.

I know what it means. And I wouldn't call a cousin-in-law a close relative. After all his wife is the daughter of Peter Donaldson, John Donaldson's older brother. And why shouldn't he have been invited at that time. Ever heard of innocent until proven guilty?

Maybe they aren't close in this case but maybe they are.... I am very close with my husband's cousins, thus cousin in law

That's very far from the point which I was making.

I love these photos! The entire family looks wonderful. Mary, especially, looks beautiful with her baby bump. I'm glad they had these pictures taken while she was still pregnant with the twins. I also can't believe how big Christian & Isabella have gotten. They're adorable children.

all opinions aside.....I do hope Mary's tailor can remake these dresses to fit her after the babes are born. I love all her dresses for this shoot, but the red with the Royal Rubies......fantastic!!!!

I really like this photoshoot! And this photoshoot was probably meant to take artistic pictures despite less formal. And well... family don't mean that members must be stick together all the time and that's why I understand and really like those photos:-) These are very beautiful and interesting and artistic and royal photos and Isabella personality is seeing very well when she's standing alone:-)

About boxes and gala dresses... well, during the last centuries royals always wore gorgeous dresses everywhere... so for me these pictures are something like that too - this photos make impression that this CP family is from past when gorgeous dresses where part of everyday and part of every room:-)

Wonderful photos. Lovely family as always. Criticism on here are becoming really annoying and irrelevant since the Crownprince and his family are not the first and won't be the last to give such interviews to magazines. It's Vogue by the way, not a cheap rag so give them and us a break! It's a pity that everything is an excuse to bash on Mary.

Well, it seems the pictures from Vogue are finally hitting the Danish papers and magazines: Sådan har du ikke set dem før - Royale - BT.dk

BT today and Billed Bladet tomorrow.

As so many has asked about the reaction in the Danish press I have translated the text in full. I don't know about other papers yet.

Sådan har du ikke set dem før - You haven't seen them like that before.

The Crown Princely Couple are featured in German Vogue in a different (unsual) photo series.
And that's not how we Danes otherwise see our royals, as/the way they chose to perform in full warpaint and gala clothing for the benefit of the Germans. The pictures speak for themselves. Inventive, different and really delicious/hot and they show a different side of the CP couple.

Among other things a group photo, which show the entire family together in the new chambers (*) at Amalienborg, where the movea boxes are stacked up while they all are dressed in gala outfits. Another show Isabella and Mary sitting on the floor and Frederik posing on the balcony, while a - possibly buzzard (falcon actually) - is sitting on his right hand.
The pictures cannot yet be shown in Denmark.

According to Vogue.de's publication preview, the photo of the family together in the Knight's Hall is a reference to a Velázquez court painting. (Very famous painter.)

Do you think the gowns Mary was wearing were the gowns we would've seen if she had attended the New Year's Court functions?

Hmm, that's interesting, RubyPrincess168. I never even thought of that, but you might be on to something. I think it's a beautiful dress and would've been lovely for her to wear to the New Year's Gala.

One was red, which I think would've been wore with the ruby parure. The gold one probably with her wedding tiara, etc. I just don't see why else she would have two new maternity evening gowns ready to go, unless she thought about attending the New Year's Court (before her doctor advised her not too?).

Or maybe they were just ordinary gowns, which were altered for the shoot?

I could imagine that Mary wore those gowns just for the shooting and that she doesn't own them actually.

As the photo shoot apparently has a reference to a Velázquez court painting, I would imagine that Vogue also has provided the clothes for the reference to a Velázquez court painting.

Apart from that I think that Vogue usually provides the clothes for photoshoots.

I guess I didn't indicate which dress, did I? I meant the gold dress. I picture that one being more appropriate for the gala, as it's not quite as form fitting. I know I would rather wear a looser fitting dress if I was 9 months pregnant with twins.

Yes, but normally it's sample size clothing - 0 or 2 here in the US - because it's the designer's samples. I imagine maternity evening gowns are much harder to procure for a fashion shoot, especially since women's bodies vary greatly in pregnancy. And Mary tends to have things made specially for her. I can't see her wearing any old thing for a Vogue photoshoot.
