Well, one "paper", Ekstra Bladet, reports on their website tonight, that John Donaldson and Susan Moody will stay in Denmark, but leave Copenhagen for Århus, when John Donaldson wil once again become a guest lecture at the university's Math department. Acording to the university the couple will live in Århus, and Ekstra Bladet even goes as far as to speculate that they might stay at Marselisborg....This is of couse the same paper who misses no opportunity in barating the Royal Family for frivolous spending, and yet here they are, not only suggesting that the Royal Family (and as they see it the taxpayers) pay for "the royal in-laws", but that they use one of the estates for that porpuse....Seams odd, as they should be the first to know exactly how expensive estates like that is to run...

Well, I guess its not alway easy to coordinate when you are being critical and when you are in support of the Royals...Especially when both issues sells newspapers...

The first Boost Juice in Tasmania? Good gosh.lol. The Apple Isle certainly ain't like the mainland

One of my brothers owns a Boost Juice outlet in Melbourne and judging by his lifestyle, there's certainly some money to be made

Perhaps the profit made shall help out for flights too and from Copenhagen which would be a rather pricey occurrence for Mrs Stephens and her family.

A good venture I think.

John Donaldson and Susan Moody are due to leave Denmark in about 6 months or so. He'll be working in Copenhagen for the next semester, and then they'll move. They're looking for a place in France, but he mentions that they don't quite know what will happen after Denmark. 01-09: Marys forældre forlader Danmark ... Billed-Bladet: Danmarks Royale Ugeblad...

Yes it should do very well judging by the connection to Mary and the publicity around it. A lot of people will line up for a juice or smoothie mixed by Princess Mary's sister

Is she considered beautiful? Are any of her sisters considered more beautiful than she?

What do you consider beautiful? Beauty is subjective... in the eye of the beholder. Overall, what some deem gorgeous others will completely disagree, so essentially your question and the following answers are unknowable.

Since the volume of reading to answer this question myself would be too great, my question was what the general press impression of her "beauty" was. I have my own opinion which I shall reserve. I have also seen only two pictures of her sisters around the time of her wedding. I guess I need to dig more. It just seemed easier & less time-consuming to simply ask here.

I was asking for the average of press opinions.

Thanks!

Does anyone know about the careers of Mary's grandparents? All I've ever managed to find out about them are their names and birth/death dates:
Ancestry of Mary Donaldson

My sense has always been that the family's roots are very working class, but I don't have much to go on.

She isn't a family member, but Mary's close friend, Amber Petty, recently entered a celebrity cooking challenge in Australia, and won the title of "disaster cook". I have no idea if this is something that was lost in translation, or if this was a contest to see who the worst chef was.

She's that bad of a cook? That she won the competition?

She can't be that bad... I mean as long as you can boil water and cook something in it then you how to cook. Right?

It looks like the last time Amber was photographed in Denmark was in 2006. Are she and Mary still friends? Was she at Isabella's christening? I have my concerns about Amber but I was just curious if Mary is still close with her.

Fred, Mary and Amber were seen leaving a restaurant in Sydney last year when Fred and Mary visited Australia.

I think that Amber was last in Denmark for Frekerik's 40th Birthday party.

I also do remember having watched a short video of Frederik's arrival at Princess Mary's sisters house in Australia last summer when the whole family was vacationing there. I think Amber was seen on that video as well. But I can't remember on which thread I saw that.

I also recall a photo taken last year in Australia with Mary and Amber. They were walking down a street, and the Christian and Isabella were being pushed in a stroller by Mary.

The article says that when Jane takes the family dog ziggy for walks, people often mistaken her for Mary.
Thanks for the article.
