I can understand a little when people are upset when they think Mary spends too much money on clothes. What I wonder is why they single out Mary. I won't name other princesses but they also wear clothes from Valentino, Gucci, Hermes, and etc. Also, I find the fashion show argument not to be relevant because Mary hasn't been to fashion show in awhile and the most recent one she went to was the one in Copenhagen which she is a patron of. She is only patron to two fashion-oriented organizations out of eighteen patronages so far but they just happen to get more attention than her mental health or heart disease organizations which really isn't Mary's fault but more of the press. And I don't think that Mary is the only princess who's gotten botoxed. Also, at Christian's christening, IMO it was Christian who stole the show.

Why does the word botox keep being used, where is Mary supposed to have had botox? She doesn't look any different to me than when I saw her for the first time. I'm interested to know. please.

I don't know when the first time you saw Mary was, but from the first time I saw Mary, which is when she first started dating Frederik, she has certainly changed for me. I can't imagine that someone hasn't changed in three or four years, especially considering the very big life changes Mary has endured and how stressful many of those things were: Moving to a new country and leaving your family and friends behind, learning a very difficult and completely different language, adjusting to life in the public eye, getting married and adjusting to married life, being pregnant and having a baby, as well as travelling abroad.

If anything, since I first saw her, Mary's probably gotten a few more wrinkles and fine lines, especially since she's also lost some weight from her dating Frederik days, and when one loses weight, especially if it shows in the face, the fine lines and wrinkles become more evident.

Being an Australian it was pretty difficult not to see Mary from the moment she started dating Fred, which is my point, her features haven't changed that much. The natural aging process have of course changed her, but I have never seen pictures where her lips or eyes or any other part of her face look that different apart from changes in lipstick, foundation, blusher, or eye shadow colours. I lost two stone when I had my first baby so changes in weight aren't unusual but as for her face. I just wondered why some of the posters keep using the word botox. I'm interested.

I agree with you on all points soCal girl! I don't understand either why is it more questionable for Mary to wear the clothes she does than the other CPss It's not like she doesn't recycle as we have seen in recent events.

Please tell me: Apart from the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (which if I remember correctly have half-yearly shows) and the Designers nest - both of which Mary is a patron for - which other fashion shows have you seen Mary attend?
One of the said shows she attended was the childrens clothes' fair.

The botex thing has become an urban legend IMO and personally I don't believe it more than I believe that Maxima, Victoria or Mathilde has had it done.

What's wrong with wearing a summer outfit in January if you want to? Just because the weather is grey and dreary outside it doesn't mean that you cannot dress in brighter colours if you feel like it

I also had a totally diferent opinion about Princess Mary at the first time, but now I find her very comfortable in her new life..even her fashion style has had a big change...all the princesses spend lots of money in clothing, shoes, hats and women stuff...if Princess Mary does it..Maxima, Letizia or Mathilde do it as well :)

Of course, you are so right. They all, as to be expected, spend lots of money on clothes. I know that some think they are not celebrities, but they are. Charles spent a fortune having Camilla overhauled, but that is to be expected. He wants her to appear attractive to others. That is what the public wants. There is no evidence that Mary has used botox and even if she has, that is her privilege. Who cares. She looks lovely when she appears in public, as she is expected to do. I think she is more frightened than haughty. You are just "Mary plain" and now you are "Princess Mary, with expectations of the public to be something special. I am sure she has be told to carry herself with dignity and she tries her best to do just that.

I enjoy her «put together» look. I appreciate the effort she puts in her looks. I wish another scandinavian crown princess also married to a wonderful prince would do the same.

I wondered if she wore it to show off the beautiful brooch that she had been given after the birth of Christian. The sapphire and diamonds did go beautifully with her jacket.

I also think she looked beautiful and dressed very elegantly that day- so nice and refreshing to see someone dress colorful on such a drab day- you could see how proud she was of her beautiful son.:) It was a great day for her and the people of Denmark.

I don't mind this thread as I think it's good that we can all air our opinions on Fred and Mary in an open and relatively grown up manner (although Fred does get off rather lightly). However, recently, criticising Mary for her choice of outfit and how she bends down to sign a book seem a bit harsh in my opinion. I'm sure we've all made the odd inappropriate fashion choice or been caught in an awkward pose. The fact that a lot of people see these as pre meditated moves on Mary's part to garner more attention seem a little odd to me. :)

She is in the public eye...we are not. Also, this forum is about things you like and/or dislike about the couple--I think she looks fake (not that she is), but she certainly looks it. She seems arrogant, again, seems...I'm not sure if she is...no one knows. It is just an opinion...

People can always judge someone in the public eye by what they see and read, I for one dont really believe what papers especially 'magazines' writte about celebrities and in this case Royals, she appears warm (again) i dont know what shes like personally.

All Princess around Europe spend a lot of money on their clothes, and that goes to Princess Mary, shes no diffrent from the rest, all Royals are about glittzy and glamour thats why we look forward to see what they wear in occasions, weddings etc

I totally agree, Mary is a public figure and we are not, so she has to be aware of what she is doing but people seem to read too much into the most insignificant action - a tilt of the head, the wave of a hand. Again this is just my opinion.

Sorry, I don't know much about her. Was she known prior to being Mary's bridesmaid or is her career based solely on being a friend of a princess?

No she was not known prior to being Mary's bridesmaid, and since May 2004 has used her friendship with Mary to enter into the celebrity world in Australia, or at least the B or C list of our celebs

Thanks v much for the info. So she is a 'celebrity' in the losest sense of the word. I think I would feel a bit off if a friend was using my position to further their own career.

Couldn't agree more. Frankly, what does it say of a person to have a friend like this, someone who puts her foot in her mouth and flirts with the press at virtually every opportunity, milking the friendship to death publicly?! Yuk! Compare that to the very discreet friends of, say, Maxima. No comparison if you ask me, those people have been utterly discreet and supportive of Maxima, and that's what a friend should do, not mint the relationship!
