They do. But Jane has a stronger nose, and different eyes. I think that Her brother John on the other hand looks like her twin. Imagine him with a wig on, he would be the spitting image of his little sister

Thanks a million for all that research into their occupations.
All of them are educated and sucessful.

So does Patricia live in the northern part of Australia, the same as
her brother?

Embarassed to admit that I am watching Undercover Boss Australia...and the founder of Boost Juice, Janine Allis was on..and knowing Jane Stephens, Mary's eldest sister now has her own Boost franchise, I was struck by the physical similarities of Mary, Jane and Janine...If the Donaldson's had a 5th child, she could be it...Anyway that is my embarassing admission and a possible 6 degrees of separation...

Sorry for the trivial, possibly irrelevant post, but I am amazed...

Not at all. She is a brown-haired woman and that's it! Her face shape, her eyes, her nose, her mouth and lips don't ressemble any of Mary's. Not to add her expressions which have nothing to do with the Donaldsons'.
BTW I still don't get why people tend to think that Marie and Mary are look-alikes! Appart from the color of their hair I see nothing else that they would share in common, from personality to physical looks.

Back to Janine Allis, I thought she resembled the Donaldson girls in the way she spoke compared to Mary and Jane, who are the only two that I have heard speak...It was just the articulation and speech patterns I thought combined with dark hair and eyes that made them seem similar...

As for Mary and Marie, I do think they are similar, they have similar birthdates too...But I think they are similar like siblings are similar, not identical but they share characteristics...I don't even think Mary, Jane and Patricia look similar, they are all different, it is only when you find out they are sisters that you can pick up on similarities and I guess that is where the look-alike speculation comes from between Mary and Marie...

I've read an interview in BB where Queen Margrethe has said that they are not similar at all.
As I remember she said that she just adores Mary and hat she is very curageous.

She also states on another occasion that Mary is not afraid of anything - I think in the 11 hour tv documentary -series in connection to a special trip crossing the north pole or something special. I'm sorry I can't recall it moore accurate.

Interesting to see that Mary's father and her stepmother were at the funeral of Queen Margrethes former Lady-in-Waiting Marianne Boel.

I would assume they were invited as they were in town. What are their relations with QM?

There is a thread about this at the Scandinavian Royals Message Board - The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: Re: Queen Margrethe at the funeral of former Lady in waiting Marianne Boel - where Stig among others replies that the Donaldson got to know the late Marianne Boel well during the CP wedding in 2004 and that it was actually Marianne Boel who accompanied Susan Moody to the church for the wedding.

I came to write something here about the fact that Jane Stephen's birthday is 26 December...close to the date we were wishing the twins were born and then they were born about 2 weeks after Jane's birthday...nice coincidence...

I also wanted to say something about QMII comments about Mary being courageous...I would be too if I had people to impress because if you say no to something, be it making a speech, travelling to Afghanistan, swimming in the ocean, downhill skiing, anything, you will be marked forever as someone not to bother with...I think Mary has to be up for anything and everything and try anything once to demonstrate flair, individuality, bravery and set an example to everyone and the public to show what's possible..It's an 'Anyone can do it!' attitude...

Yes, AAThing, people watching must be a huge incentive to 'have a go', for Mary or anyone in that situation. I do think Mary is a brave type, after all, she took on life in the DRF and all that entails. It surely has it's perks, and also drawbacks. She does not strike me as a whimp!!
