I'm sorry to say this because many won't agree. But I hardly call being a prince and princess real "work". It isn't a 9 to 5 job, they can't get fired from it and as for Mary being tired? From what? Raising their son, yes ofcourse but remember she doesn' have to clean her house or cook her own meals.
I'm sure the "job" does have difficult aspects to it but the only thing I can think of that is a detriment is lack of privacy.

It differs from country to country. In many, if not most, monarchies only the Sovereign and the Heir(ess) receive a dotation from the State. Others simply have to work for their living:

Don Jaime de Marichalar y Sáenz de Tejada, Duke of Lugo: managing director / senior advisor of Crédit Suisse First Boston in Madrid
Don Iñaki Urdangarín y Liebaert, Duke of Palma de Mallorca: director of planning and development for Motorpress Ibérica and a founding partner of Noos Consultoría Estratégica
Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau: former firmant of Goldman, Sachs & Co London and now director of TNO Space Technologies in Delft
Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau: director of the Open Society Institute in Brussels
Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands: policy researcher for RAND Europe in Brussels
Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands: former manager Weber, Shandwick & Co. and now an own communications cunsultancy bureau in Brussels
Prince Joachim of Denmark: operates Schackenborg Manor, which is in his possession and is the source of his income

Etc.

It seems only the Belgian royal children (Philippe, Astrid, Laurent) all receive a dotation, but this is really an exception.

My comments about the "regular job" with set schedule, cooking, cleaning, etc. were in regard to my and my acquaintances' world, not to the royal world.

Yes, I know what you mean. It seems that regular people have more of a busy schedule in terms of all the things you just mentioned...it's kind of funny, isn't it?

I agree that a lot of these royals have their cake and eat it, too.
Sometimes, I have to say, I get a bit, well, annoyed when there's a new picture of for example a princess on duty, i.e. visiting a new hospital or whatever, and a ton of members only comments to that are in the vein of: "oohhh, this princess is soooooo beautiful and she works sooooooo hard" when in reality, a lot of them aren't and don't.

At the same time, especially monarchs don't have it that easy: being for example queen of England really IS a 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year kind of thing. Seriously. And sure, she gets a lot of perks. A lot. But all the same, this isn't an easy gig by any standards: Elizabeth easily logs in more hours of work than most of us.

But for a lot of these princes and princesses, you are absolutely right.

These people have an army of stylists, cooks, personal trainers, homes, gardeners, nannies, they use sometimes the government's planes to go to private holidays (this example pertains to the Princes of Orange, NOT to Fred and Mary). They get cars from the government or have a budget for that, and they get in return a very nice social life in which they get to meet practically anyone who matters. Not a bad gig if you can get it indeed.

I think that especially all these 'commoners' marrying into these royal families, practically shows pretty much anyone with average skills can do the job, with a bit of help, of which they get plenty. This is one reason why many people really don't see the point of having a monarchy anymore.

Anyhow this comment really doesn't single out Mary or Fred per se. Of them I will say this: Mary seems to take on more and more work. She ventures out, even on her own to foreign countries. One couldn't exactly accuse her of NOT trying to be meaningful. Plus, to use an old fashioned way of looking at this: she's done wat she is supposed to do: provide a healthy male heir. Adorable little Christian is a sure sign this princess could be doing worse!

Fred is still a huge enigma to me in terms of whether he takes it easy or whether that is my very wrong impression of a guy who just come across as laid-back.
Fred is pretty busy according to many members here who know more about this than I do. I certainly don't get the impression that Fred is working that hard, but as I've said before, I don't live in Denmark and don't understand Danish (I am Dutch but let me tell you, that doesn't help me <squat> if I'd want to read a Danish article about Fred or Mary) and have no incentive to learn it really so I may not be in a place to judge this. But I am attempting to follow him a bit closer and this thread is one way of doing that!

I would actually also like to add something that occurred to me when I looked at the pictures taken at Christian's first birthday. How Mary must miss her mother, who never got the chance to even meet Fred, not to mention never got to live to see her grandson born. And I must say, behind Mary's very friendly and very dignified front, she must carry this enormous tragedy. I have to say when I saw these pictures, I thought of this and how Mary must miss her mom, especially at moments like this, celebrating her child's first birthday knowing her mother will never get to touch this cute grandchild, let alone see him grow up, my heart went out to her. I must say, Mary carries this loss well.

From all the 'Crown Princesses', let me name it that way, I have never felt a 'click' with Mary. She is the fake one, with her stylistes and her strange cover-photographs which are not at all comme-il-faut for royalty. Diana started with this and caused the Beckhamization of the monarchy. Mary should not let the old and ancient House of Schlesvig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg going the same path into the present anglosaxon disease of worshipping of celebrities and kissing every pooh-pooh of the likes of Paris Hilton or Madonna's African baby (the poor, poor thing).

It must be personal. Others praise her all the way up towards cloud nine. But there are always people you like or dislike on first sight. An initial feeling that is. I have that with Mary. For no second I believed in that marriage of her. She is the first who comes in my mind when it is about royal crises of the future.

Don't get misled by fairytale pictures. We all remember the last fairytale pictures of Alexandra and Joachim in between autumn leaves, with filtered light and oh-la-la l'amour. Not long later they announced their separation.
You're right; it must be personal. I for one does not believe that because you can e.g. see the tonsils of a broadly smiling princess that this person is necessarily a more warm or caring person than another person who is naturally less exuberant in public. Fakeness may come in a lot of disguises and none of us know what these public figures are really like; they act, walk, talk and smile differently - and so what?

And what do you mean by saying that you 'do not believe in that marriage of hers'?? It's as valid and real as any other royal marriage entered into the past couple of years.

Don't worry about any royal crisis of the future on Mary's account; of all the present CP couples Frederik and Mary are IMO the ones in the most secure position.

As to fairy-tale pictures I don't understand why the breakup of one marriage in the family should mean that we as lookers-on should be distrustful of the image of other family members.
I understand that prince Bernard of Holland had a couple of daughters on the side; that doesn't mean that every time I look at a picture of his grandson with his two small daughters I think of the adultery which WA is bound to be committing in the years ahead!

Members of royal families have busy lives but thing like the people who live outside palace walls. The lady that is a wife, mother, worker, cook, cleaner, psychlogist and does it all on a fixed monthly budget without designer outfits. Now that is a woman to admire. Royal ladies to me, though real people live a very fantasy life to me. Maybe the fairytale of the royal princess died with Diana?

I understand what you're saying but Mary using stylists and dressing up to date can also be explained as her way of doing her best at work. Dressing well when one for example goes to visit a friend is a sign of respect for the friend, rather than a sign one likes to dress up period. Same counts for Mary. The fact she makes an effort to look decent and presentable is probably nothing else than her showing respect for the role she is in and for the people she is visiting. Nothing wrong with that.

And as for stylists, come on now, the other crown princesses also employ heaps of people who help them with wardrobe, hair, etc. That's not something only Mary does, they all do it.

I completely agree. I've always thought the tonsils-laugh of Maxima seems fake, but my oh my, the Dutch buy it, hook line and sinker. I do think Maxima is a hard worker, but her warm-seeming personality may well differ from the private person, indeed we simply don't know that. The fact that Mary doesn't show her tonsils when she laughs is one of her qualities, I tell you!

Now, now.
I'd bet WA has less of Bernard's shamelessly womanizing genes than he has his more timid and serious father's Claus's genes, but we will see. It seems clear however that whoever he'd commit adultery with, if he ever did, that woman wouldn't live! And he wouldn't either! Maxima would take care of that, she seems the type who's wearing the pants in that relationship!

"That is an opinion. There are other opinions as well."

This thread is called: "What is your opinion on Frederik and Mary?"

I might have been wrong with my limited knowledge of the English language, but I thought it was an invitation to other posters to make known what they think about this couple. But I see that I probably have understood the question wrongly: it was an invitation to join the Hallelujah!-chorus concerning the present spouse of Danmark's Crown Prince.

I have given my opinion on the lady in question. If people get disturbed by such an opinion, think about Prince Willem-Alexander's famous soundbite: "That is an opinion. There are other opinions as well." And if people thought I was insulting by warning the present spouse of Danmark's Crown Prince not to start the 'Beckhamization' of the old and immensely respected House of Schlesvig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, then people do not need to feel offended. They should hit back to me with valid arguments which prove that I was wrong, so wrong, with my opinion.

After all, that is what an opinion-board is for.

I hardly believe the Danish Monarchy have anything to be concerned about, but I'm sure the Crown Princess would appreciate the concern you hold for her and the dynasty's interests. When she is Queen (and she will be, and of enormous popularity and affection I'm certain), perhaps then you may have come to think differently of her, then again, perhaps not

I also notice how you refer to HRH the Crown Princess as the Crown Prince's spouse. Can you not even bring yourself to use her name? You think so lowly of someone you dont even know, that you can't bring yourself to say their name? I do hope I'm wrong here.

I think its important for all to remember that its not so much what the indavidual makes themselves out to be, rather what the media does to present them in that light. They (royals) have no control over this and the media will always do what they can to manipulate someone's image.

I could not disagree with you more adamantly Henri M, but your opinion it is and you, like the rest of us, are entitled to post it.

P.S. One ticket for the Hallelujah Chorus, please

i totally second your opinion, henri.

i also can't see any point in discussing willem and maxima here, and whether he will commit adultery or not. it's likely to happen, since there were lots of stories of royal men commiting adultery. frederik is also one for whom that quality would adjust. i would feel entirely sorry in that case if either maxima or mary were cheated on, just as bad as i felt when the divorce of alexandra and joachim was announced because of similar reasons.

just as queen elizabeth once said, she explained how she didn't ask her husband to be faithful but loyal, which is exactly an example of how royals give preference to their royal duties rather than their personal relations: both maxima and mary, as any other princesses were 'married' to the country when they married their respective princes. that's my opinion and the way i see it.

I did not. I referred to her as the present spouse of Danmark's Crown Prince.

(Which is perfectly what she is).

Well then...

How many spouses do assume Frederik shall have throughout his life?

You are correct, Mary is the Crown Prince's spouse but you did not actually answer my question (or perhaps I should have worded it better) and I would appreciate it if you did. Why no name?

A breathtakingly perfect (!!!) Crown Princess with ice water running in her veins.
Posing against a cold, artificial background.
Pure beauty.
Vogue or Cosmopolitan, Yves Saint Laurent or Gaultier would immediately have requested her for her astonishing looks.

But.......

Compare this with another Princess:
http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/dsc?nob...e=63489920.jpg

Not posing against an artificial background. Just in her real daily surroundings. Showing all her freckles and wrinkles. Her hair with roots. The last picture simply appeals more to me. It shows a human being. It shows warmth and it radiates goodwill.

i would also like to point out something i didn't like of mary in her last event. i read that the coat she was wearing was made of astrakhan (and it does look like astrakhan to me)... it's not a secret how astrakhan coats are made: killing a pregnant sheep mum and minutes after the animal agonising, taking out the fetus and killing it to get that super soft and pure wool. you also need more than 20 fetus to obtain a whole coat of astrakhan.

wool may be an important industry in denmark, but i see no reason for mary wearing one of those coats, when she declared herself 'an animal lover' in many occasions.

there are thousands of organisations fighting against this around the world and royals should be the first ones to support the non-use of furs, specially astrakhan, since it's perhaps the one that requires the most uncivilised and inhuman way of killing the animal (it's incredible to think that in the 21st century, people are warming themselves up by doing the same cavemen did thousands of years ago).

No one knows the future, so you can't say for certain that she will be queen. Not to be morose, but it's not in our hands as to whether she outlives her mother-in-law, whether Fred outlives his mother, etc. You can hope that she becomes queen, and you can say that it's unlikely the monarchy will be abolished, but you can't state -- for a fact -- that she will become queen.

I agree with you, carlota, but I am easy on royals and celebs who wear furs because I would feel so hypocritical about criticizing them for it when here I am, eating meat and wearing wool myself. I have wanted to give up meat for a long time but somehow always give in, and likewise, I don't wear leather and I am against having leather furniture, but yet I find myself unable to give up wearing wool. I agree it would be best, it is best, and I commend --nay, applaud anyone who makes a stand and gives it all up.
It's very hard, though. Especially in Scandanavia, eastern europe, Russia, and places like that where wool is a very important part of the economy.
It's terrible, but I can't blame Mary when I am guilty myself.
