Thank you Ysbel and Toledo for your responses :)

I guess, at the end of the day that those who aren't fond of or even dont like Mary are quite happy to be this way. They seem quite content in trying to project a negative view of the Crown Princess and no indavidual shall sway their prejudiced views, even if presented with material and facts that could make all see just how truely kind and sincere she really is.

And it's very true! First impressions last and for many, this seems to the case. But, at least those who have stated this, realise it

But when she spreads 28 engagements over 15-20 non fashion patronages, and does 15 fashion engagements, it looks like she only attends fashion events. I think if she found one or two non fashion patronages and made multiple visits and undertooks multiple engagements with them, it would look less like she just does fashion engagements.

That is not true . :)

My first impression of Mary was really good. I liked her. But at her wedding she seemed like an Ice Queen. But, I really began to like her after. But I have been able to see recently the negative side of Mary people talk about. But I think she is doing a great job.

I know that she attends many events with her patronages. What I was saying was that when she attends one or two events with each of these patronages and then attends 15 events focusing on fashion, it looks like she is only doing fashion events. If she attend 15 events at one non-fashion patronage, that patronage would get the most publicity.

I don´t think Mary is introverted. An real introverted person would never marry a crown prince. No matter, how much she loves him.
Princess May of Teck, who was well known to be painfully shy, married Prince George, who, although not crown Prince at the time, was next in line to the British throne. There are degrees of introversion; it's possible to be somewhat introverted or shy and still be able to live a public sort of life.

I think Mary is a clothes horse that has little interest in being a royal other than the perks. I don't like the fact that she spends so much money either, it has been quoted that she spent 15,000 dollars on calls to Australia during her engagement, along with this she has only been in the role 2 years and yet has aquired over 400 pairs of shoes alone and these shoes are the top of the range prada, laboutin ect. If she wasn't a clothes horse why would she need to always have a new handbag for practically every occasion, new shoes and designer clothes, none of the other princesses are this extravagant when it comes to what they wear. There is a difference between looking nice, and an up to the minute fashion horse. Mary recycles yes, but there is always a new item thrown in there that has more than likely not yet been seen. The denmark royals are not the weathiest royal family and mary appears to think that the royal wealth is at her disposal and doesn't consider the consequences of how her spending may look to some members of the public.

What is your source for these figures? Did she invite you home and show her a closet filled with 400 pairs of shoes and dit you check every label? It doesn't seem to me that she has more shoes than e.g. CP Maxima.
'It has been quoted'.... lots of things are 'quoted', by many different people with many different convictions.

Your statements like her being a clothes horse and having little interest in being a royal seem to me to lack substance and reason.

hard to compare the two princesses because people showed in general a lot more respect towards each other then and it might have been easier to overcome shyness.

I think so too, MII. Mary attended the seminar held last year on the prevention of suicide, but the picture of her sitting in an auditorium with others does not sell nearly as well as pictures of her sitting with princess Alexandra or another good-looking friend by a catwalk. The fashion pictures are repeated much more in the press than pictures of her arriving at or leaving a meeting with one of her patronages.
Some posters have advised that Mary follow Alexandra's example. Taken from memory, I'm not at all sure that Alexandra was very active with her patronages less than 2 years into her marriage. Moreover, Alexandra did not have a newborn at this point in her marriage. J&A were married about 4 years before they had their first child.

I don't make things up userdane and I wouldn't say this if it werent something I read. There was an article I am sorry but I no longer have it a while ago that was annoyed with mary's spending quoting the cost of her telephone calls to Australia and the figure of how many shoes she has bought since her engagment. The article was critical yes and it compared the annoyance that some had on Mary's spending to the country of denmark and its number of unemployed, in comparison to Mary's spending.

Can I also note that it is reasonable that more pictures are available online in connection with the Copenhagen Fashion Fair, as it seems to me that more photoagencies cover the fashion fair, and thus also gets their shots of Mary, than Mary's visit to a new patronage, such as the Christmas stamp foundation? Maybe it is the sheer mass of pictures twice a year that leave an inprint in people's mind?

I suppose a regular reader of Her og Nå, Se og Hør and Billed-Bladet would not, maybe, come out with the same image of Mary as a fashion-addict as people who rely on the online photoagencies.

In relation to her spending much money on clothes - Mette-Marit was under scrutiny from the press about the same thing closely after her wedding, and she said that before she married Haakon, she hadn't the need for gala dresses, or other fancy clothes - it meant that she had to build up a new wardrobe. I expect the same is true for Mary, and the other princesses. Only someone who has been royal for some time, like Margrethe, Sonja etc. has built up the wardrobe over time - and so it may not seem like they're spending so much money on clothes, because they have dresses that can be altered and used again.

But this thread is what bothers me about Mary and Frederik. Currently it is that Mary went back in the business so quickly.

I feel that she should have had a longer maternity leave. Granted, they don't have regular jobs, but the baby is pretty regular, and I doubt anyone would have scoffed their noses if Mary had chosen three-four months of completely duty-less time.

Something you read? I have read lots of things that I would never take at face value.
Basically, what Mary and Frederik spend is their problem - they have to keep within the financial limits set for them - therefore it doesn't make sense to discuss whether they spend too much. The problem would only arise if they applied for more money. And they won't do that because e.g. Mary's wardrobe is being built up during the first years as CP (I think that all CPs have rather high costs of clothing in their first years as CP; unless you were born a princess, few women enter that 'job' with the required wardrobe).

Comparing the perceived costs of Mary's wardrobe to the number of unemployed in Denmark is laughable. Why not compare the restaurant bills for public elected politicans to the number of unemployed - that would make sense.

Wonderfully expressed UserDane :) "MII"
The Crown Princess owning 400 pairs of shoes!!...I really find this quite laughable.lol. I would find it amazing if she had over 200 let alone 400. One musn't forget that most of HRH outfits are "recycled" and mix matched so as to make it look like a newer wardrobe for each appearance, this also goes for her shoe wear.

Also I have noticed comaprisons being made between Mary & Alexandra. This is rediculous. They are two different women who have very seperate roles. Alexandra did it/does it her way whilst Mary shall do it in a manner that is comfortable and familiar, which is the way it should be. HM the Queen seems most proud as does the Prince Consort not to mention the Crown Prince & even Princess Benedikte has made comment on Mary.

I do not agree with you. I like Mary very much, she is very classy, but generally speaking, what royals spend is not strictly speaking THEIR problem, because they get allowance from the State.
When Nicky Hilton celabrates Nrew Year wih a bottle of Champaign worthing 100'000.-- $, (source hello) it's really HER problem because she is not a public figur.
But all royals live from their respective States, and it's a big discussion held in many cercles about royals REAL use, so they have to be carefull not to provoke and to shock.
When a single mother working to a Super Market tries to raise up her child alone with a very low revenu, she may be disgusted by seing a CP wearing every day a different Louboutin pair of shoes worthing what exactly she earns per month, because this money comes from HER taxes also, so royals have to be carefull. You are right also for politicians, but the price of a politician's tie or his car are less evidenced than any CP's new crocodile bag. And they could be many people saying that a politician has an exact usefull role, and royals NONE!

I agree there a lot of sugar coated images about mary that I wouldn't take at face value aswell userdane.

Fair enough!


The problem would only arise if they applied for more money.

Why does most things you see her in, have to be prada and top class designers? There are many fashions that aren't up to the minute designs but still look respectable and nice, without being designer labels.

In regards to the comparison of Mary's spending and the unemployed in denmark, its not laughable, the monarchy is there for the people. When your sleeping in a cardboard box and you see a person prancing around in prada and overally priced luxury goods your obviously going to wonder if the expenses for material items cold be money used for more purposeful and valid reasons.

Actually you be right MII the figure was more like over 200 I thought 400 but my mistake. If you look at what I said previously I know the clothes are recycled but if you look closely most of the time there is always a new item thrown in that we haven't yet seen.

Ok, thanks for clarifying that Angele.

Indeed, many new items are introduced into her wardrobe over the period of a year (as are all Crown Princesses) but the bulk of it is definitly and most marvellously "recycled"...such an un-royal word.lol.

The royal expenditure's primary use and priority is to first and foremost, pay the wages of those employed by the Crown Princely household.

With all due respect, I do feel you being quite dramatic here fandesacs2003. The same could be said for any royal who is a public figure and active (even not always active) member of a ruling family.
