Also IMO Letizia and Mary are nothing alike- they are very different. It's like comparing chalk with cheese- there is NO point to it. Mary and Letizia have different backgrounds- they look different and speak different languages.To me Mary appears more confident now and has fit so well into her Royal role.I really like Mary's look and the way she carries herself. I think she is doing a great job.
Thank you Tabbitha, I really appreciate your kind words :)

What happened during their last visit? And what do you mean by the Danish PRs being dumb??

Frederik and Mary received a warm welcome in Australia. Some members here think this was bad. Most Australians thought it was rather good. Can't please everyone! :)

What bothers me about Fred and Mary? Well I was extremely surprised to realize that after the baptism of lill prins nothing really bothers me anymore about those two. It's probably because of Haakon and Mette-Marit: if two nice persons found in their heart to go to this baptism and showed warmth to Fred and Mary even when F&M didn't care to show up to their own child's baptism then why can't I also give them a chance?

Although I am uncomfortable, and a little saddened, with the intent of this thread for any Crown Princess, I find it odd that Fred and Mary are being singled out and judged on attendance to any event when no one has access to the truth. They appear to have many friends and are well liked, which may somehow be unpopular with fans of other CP's?

Perhaps I have been on the earth longer than most posters, hence my id, but I have learned long ago that looking for the light in people makes my life, and those around me, a lot happier in the long run.

Peace

I agree we really can't get upset bc they miss one baptism. I read the CP's of Spain are not going to the norway baptism.

That would show me for trying to be nice by admitting that nothing really bothers me anymore with these two. For once I had no harsh comments on fashionasta CP, no, nothing....

I was not talking about Prins Sverre's but Ingrid Alexandra's baptism. Call me too respectful but when you are godfather to a FUTURE QUEEN the least you can do is to show up. and Felipe was also rude not to attend. It was a pity that two godfathers were no show!

Do you know the reason for that? Or anyone else?

Perhaps weddings for the two princes in question are not good enough reasons for some...but now Frederick and Mary will be in attendance, and the Princes of Austrias won't, but surely they have a good reason this time too.

Oh, so that was at the time of their respective weddings?
Some people are really desperate to criticise.

Idriel ma chérie... for your information personnelle the baptism of the future QUEEN of Norway - QUEEN, not royal butler! - took place on Saturday April 17 2004 - a whole big month before the weddings of Fred (on May 14) and Felipe (on May 21). That being said I do not believe that I was the one desperate to criticise here as I clearly wrote that if my dear Haakon and MM found in their heart to forgive Freddie boy then I could do the same. And I actually did it by writing black on white that I am NO longer bothered by anything Fred and Mary can do. It is difficile to be more bland than that.

i think she is has a double personality... she tries to seem nice but her face always show arrogance. She dresses likes a very respectable lady but it happens just because she has enough money to dress like that.

this is a totally new mary some years ago (from Le Soin)

Arrogance? no
Suffisance -» self-complacency? maybe and only maybe.

Nice picture of a much younger and much less mature MAry by the way.

Is that really her? Her complexion looks darker and her face is much fuller.

Yes that is Mary from her starmakers course days- sorry to be off topic. I think she looked great then and I think she looks great now- money or not. Money doesn't give you style or taste- look at a few celebs and you will see that. I don't see any arrogance at all I think Mary is a strong person and that may show in her face but most of the time I see a happy , smiling person who loves life and her family.:)
Gaia I really enjoyed reading your post .

Of course her complexion would be darker then ...One musn't forget that the Crown Princess isn't exposed to as much vu rays in Denmark as she was whilst growing up in Australia. And yes, Mary has shed quite a few pounds since then. I think she looks amazing now, and I think she looked gorgeous back then.

Nowawadys, I think her porcelain complexion is to die for!

I don't think so. Spanish court has been very careful of presenting a certain image of the Asturias couple. They did not attend Charles' wedding. I know only Haakon did so. But considering that Charles had personally come to their wedding,with him being so friendly with the Spanish royal family and most of all the similarity of the situations- marrying divorced women, it would have been nice for them to show up. I know that Asturias couple is a busy one but in this case the excuse was a lame one.

Also if Felipe and Letizia could show up in Denmark one week before their wedding, an event which took place almost a month ago could have been incorporated in their schedule. It is obvious that it was to avoid any publicly noted interaction between Mette-marit and Letizia.
