As you mention, both magazines are gossip magazines. But can you feel if the interview with Mary's brother John and sister-in-law Leanne is real or fake? Somehow, I doubt Mary's always discreet family would comment on private things like Christmas plans. It could, however, be very nice for Mary to celebrate Christmas with her entire family and the upcoming Christmas it actually is Frederik and Mary's turn to celebrate Christmas at home in Frederik 8's Palace with Mary's family. They switch between the families. If true, I think it would be a litle shame if it was going to be canceled.

Maybe asking stupid, but what is Mary's big secret?

Roskilde, I forgot to write that! Thank you for being on the ball. The secret appears to be that Mary will be coming to Australia next year for her sister Jane's 50th birthday party. Not an official visit.

Leanne has commented at various times and seems to do so without causing a rift. Whenever she makes them, the comments are usually harmless but offer a little insight into Mary's life.

Quotes from Leanne in the article:

"It's as if Mary was born to the role. We are so proud of the way she works so hard, and has earned her place as a much-loved and admired royal."

"The great thing about Mary is she has stayed a very real person. There are no airs and graces with her. She is just who she is. She is a lovely lady and she has stayed the same."

"Mary and Fred are more in love than ever. They are soulmates and they are definitely made for each other."

On F & M:
"And they're still the same today. Whenever we see them they are happy together. They are very open with their emotions with each other, very much in love."

Jane's birthday party:

"It's possible Mary will be here for Jane's 50th."
"It will be a private visit-just a big Donaldson family party. We're good at throwing parties. And Mary loves coming home so there will be plenty to celebrate."

Christmas 2014 in DK:

"It was to be the ultimate family reunion."

"We were all going to descend on Amalienborg Palace for a big family Christmas. We were all so excited, but sadly due to royal duty,we've had to postpone the reunion. We don't know when we'll be going now."
"All we know is Mary's plans changed, that the Queen had something on."

That pretty much sums up Leanne's quotes.

Oh, I hadn't seen you had updated your post, Lady Rosie. But thank you

Yes quite harmless comments from Leanne, but nonetheless quite lovely.

Sometimes I can't help but think Mary must miss her family incredibly much there Down Under.

At any rate, a shame they had to cancel the big family Christmas reunion - had been fun for the Donaldson Family.

Do we know when Jane's birthday is? it will be wonderful if Mary can go (and Frederik too)

Thank you polyesco and Roskilde.

From what I can make out, her birth date is 26th December 1965.

I have to double check google but I think this would be correct. If so, Danish members would it seem unlikely that Mary would be able to travel away from DK over Christmas and the New Years Levees?

Maybe it would be an excuse for the Doanldson family to travel to DK and combine Christma and birthday in one.

Thanks, Polyesco.

That's a nice coverage. Is there anything interesting in the article?

I presume "Mills and Boon fans" are a kind of Cinderella-addicts?

Mills and Boon. My late grandmother and mother used to read them. Think Barbara Cartland and you are not far off!

The new issue of Billed Bladet (out tomorrow) has noted that Mary on the day of their 10th anniversary wore a new bracelet. I can see Frederik & Mary's monogram, and perhaps Tasmania? Can maybe be a morning gift from Frederik. We must wait and see if BB knows more ...
