I really hate it when people say Mary is the new Diana, she is not. Nobody will ever be like Princess Diana.

Yes Mary is beautiful, a princess and doing a wonderful job, but Diana was ina different league.

Mary is a woman, and has herself pulled together, Diana was just a young woman when she became a princess and the World watched her bloom.

Diana was a Worldwide phenomenom, Mary is not that well known to people who do not follow the Royals or live in Denmark or Australia.
true. Mary is only well-known in Denmark and Australia, whilst Diana was a world phenomenon.

besides, Mary and Diana, though similar are two very different people, and have different qualities that attribute to their uniqueness.

Yes and no.

In the week before Mary and Frederik met at the Slip Inn during the Sydney Olympics she apparently went out with a Sydney Swans Australian Rules football player.

Nothing has been said about how many times they "went out" during this short period, and the player himself has declined to offer any information whatsoever.

As is usual, where only the bare facts are known, the media will just make up the rest to suit their own agenda.

The more interesting thing is that Mary had a long-term relationship (7 years) with a man in Melbourne. He has not said a word, apart from something to the effect that Mary is an amazing woman and he wishes her well.

If the loyalty and absolute discretion of one's friends and acquaintances can be used as a measure, then Mary is a very special person indeed.

To put Susan Moody's quote in some sort of context, Crown Princess Mary has taken Australia by storm on this tour.

Plenty of commentators here have used the expression "the new Diana". It is meant in relation to public interest and media attention; ie enthusiastic crowds, blanket press and television coverage, the number of magazine covers etc etc.

It is not intended as a comparison between the personalities of the two woman but rather the intense public, and therefore media, interest.

I suppose that it will be Prince William's future wife who will bear the brunt of the "New Diana" label to a much greater extent. And she won't be thanking anyone for it.

How dare they say that she is the "new Diana" WHat the heck does she do to deserve that label. The only thing I get out of Mary is what she wears-that is all.

Cool

what exactly do you expect to "get" out of her? I think most of the comparisons, esp if they arise out of the australia trip, are based largely on the fashion/style angle, the fact that Mary spent so much of her time fundraising and the immense crowds and interest in the visit. in particular, her appearance at the Victor Chang ball echoed diana's own attendance years ago.

are you really looking for subtlety and intelligent commentary from the journalists in this area?

Is is too much to ask for "subtlety and intelligent commentary from the journalists in this area". I think it depends on the person. But she is just getting started so maybe there will be more intelligent commentary in the future. And so I also don't think it is appropo. to label her, or anyone-maybe exceot William, the new Diana.

Say what?

I think it highly unlikely that Prince William will ever be labelled "the new Diana", unless of course there is an aspect to William which has so far escaped our attention.
