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.
