Fred looks good, I like Mary's dress & jewellery but the hairstyle - just hanging down - ages her a lot.

Interesting! The photos are ideally suited to create layers for Photoshop.

I see the pics were made on 26th June 2015.

I'm not at all fond of those grey backgrounds. Imo it looks cold and harsh. But the couple themselves look beautiful and dignified. I don't think that the hanging hair ages CP Mary, but an updo would have looke even more elegant.

I don´t like the couple's photo. It look's like a collage.

Not a fan of the new pictures. The background is terrible, there are so many beautiful places in Denmark, why a gray background. The Crown Prince looks good though. The Crown Princess, the dress is beautiful, the jewels are stunning (although I have never been a big fan of the ruby tiara), but her hair......not a good style for a formal picture.

Photographs which are themselves is better. But the joint is awful. Very pitched seem to be uncomfortable too fake.

Frederik and Mary look good.

It is quite a nice picture at first glance but when I get nit-picky, I feel like I've seen this official picture before, which isn't true, but there was a previous official picture that is similar.

Agree. To me it is not blatantly bad but I feel like a better choice could have been made.

Thanks DOM Beautiful new pictures.

Just to info... these 3 new official pictures released are not ordinary new official pictures. We got them back in the spring (in April I think) These are additional pictures to mark:

"New pictures have been taken due to HRH The Crown Prince’s appointment as rear admiral of the Navy, major general of the Army and air vice-marshal of the Air Force in connection with HM The Queen’s 75th birthday."

*

The Crown Prince couple Frederik and Mary looks stunning and dignified. Frederik in uniform is always good eyesight and Mary beautiful in her wine-red velvet dress and red ruby tiara (my favorite gown and tiara). Great pictures. But why edit a new different background into the pictures, dear photographer? There is no reason to do that. Had the background been the orginal background these pictures would had been perfection. Perhaps it's because the pictures are to a special purpose and not normal official pictures.

Nice official pictures.

Frederik looks very regal. The new uniform really suits him.
and my the blue eyes really stand out.

Mary cant go wrong with the beautiful Ruby tiara, what a sight and very elegant

I think the ones we got last year, had enough background.

These are simple but very elegant

love the red velvet dress, which she has worn before

Yeah, I really don't get the background either.

Something like this is so easy to make, https://app.box.com/s/tukd5urnnm3tjo96b6mbh4vbp24xtouc but perhaps they want people to toy with the new portraits?

You have a go: https://app.box.com/s/4z1m5gr1rfw9qpw3jf6bgi84cmsfjlq0
(Used the magic wand to clear the background, hence the poor result. But it'll take only a couple of minutes to do that manually instead).

Is this something photographers use at the moment? I saw an official looking photo of Victoria and Daniel somewhere. It had a similar, even greyer background.

I think recently the Spanish royals come to mind for using grey backgrounds too.

I like it. It serves a great contrast to the ones earlier this year that had a "busier" background

They're also beautiful.

Frederik and Mary look great - how could they not? Not loving the background, though. The Swedish court has released a picture of the Crown Princess couple and their daughter with the same background, but much harsher lighting. Is this the new style? I hope not.

Considering that the royal house should be able to hire the best photographer that money can buy this photo of the couple is dreadful. Crown Princess Mary is an overlay over CP Frederik and is also done in such a way that CP Mary is much shorter than she is in real life. This couple does not need photo shopping or manipulation so why are they releasing such a photo? It looks fake no matter how one looks at it.
