Yea, I feel the same way. It'll be fantastic to see photos of the two women together- I've always thought they resembled each other a bit

I wonder whether Countess Alexandra will be there, since she is afterall the patron of UNICEF in Denmark...somehow I doubt it since this is a very high profile royal visit by senior royals from 2 royal families!
Any thoughts?

I can wait! I don't think Will has never met Fred and Mary.

I think that Prince William would have met CP Frederik and CP Mary as they attended Prince Charles' 60th birthday celebrations in 2008 at Buckingham Palace.

True! But given the protocol at such events, I would find it hard to believe that they were not introduced!

Maybe it was a reception line type of introduction where Fred and Mary extended wedding congratulations to Will and Kate and some genteel words exchanged, but nothing in depth. That is, if there is a reception line at royal weddings!

I don't think Fred & Mary attended William and Kate's wedding (the Queen of Denmark attended, I believe) so I don't think they have met Kate, as I don't believe she was @ the 2008 birthday event for Prince Charles. William would have been introduced to Fred and Mary at that event, I assume.
I think William and Kate deciding to travel on his days off was an impromptu decision by them and this first meeting of the couples brings massive attention to the cause both couples hope to help, a synergy, if you will. Lovely gesture, IMO.

That's right, Queen Margrethe of Denmark attended the wedding, I think too.

One thing we don't know is how many private events do they have...So maybe they have met even before of Prince Charles 60th birthday celebrations...Who knows!

Perhaps it should be the other way. Catherine mentoring Mary.

This meeting between Kate and Mary should be egg on the face of at least one Australian magazine which claimed a while ago that Kate and Mary were best friends and that Mary was giving her tips on how to deal with courtiers etc. When they hadn't even met. So the media next week will be saying that Mary and Kate are meeting for the first time, and that particular magazine will probably just run along with the mill and ignore what they had printed previously. So you can discount most of what Aussie magazines say about royals.
Which is a real disappointment to us here, when all we want is honest reporting and have to resort to these forums to get it. Which is great for those of us with computers. But when you consider so many don't have access to the net they get a biased view of the royals from ghastly magazines. Sa la vie!

There's a photo of CP Willem-Alexander, Prince William and Frederik at a party, with William looking about ten years younger. I don't know what the occasion was. Maybe Prince Charles 50th birthday?

Frederick and William met also at the christening of the first son of Paul and Chantal of Greece. Both of them were godfather with Prince Felipe. If you check google you will find photos and you will see that William who was 15years old at the time was yet taller than Frederick.

On another point, the australian media are now talking about the meeting and said new generation of royal to meet in copenhagen. And the Australian TV just take about that with the Queen downunder at the present moment.

I'm totally excited like the rest of you. I'm going to donate for the relief because it's the main purpose, they want to enlight the cause and I think it's part of our duty not just to watch the photos of two beautiful ladies and couple but to do "the important thing". I want the babies in africa to have meals each day of their life and survive/ So if you can permit me.... please if you can afford it, donate.

I suppose that Alexandra ought to be there, and in theory there's no reason why she shouldn't. The CPly couple are on speaking terms with the countess and occasionally visit her home for Felix' or Nikolai's birthdays.

HOWEVER, I'm seriously in doubt - I'm not sure whether she will be!
I tend to agree Terri Terri! IMO the situation would be slightly awkward. While the main objective of the Cambridge - trip is Unicef they also take the opportunity to make a 'protocol call' and familiarize themselves with the Danish crown princely couple. Imagine CP Frederik telling Prince William: 'Oh by the way, the Patron of the Danish Unicef happens to be my former sister- in- law"??

IMO odds are 70 -30 pct in favour of a 'diplomatic flu'!

Fred and Mary did not attend the Cambridge wedding for the simple reason that they were not invited! We discussed this at the time. They attended a 60th birthday dinner at Buckingham Palace hosted by The Wales'es, but so did most of European top tier royalty. We can deduce that F & M Cambridges shook hands at some point, but that's all. There's no great interaction between the BRF and DRF, except perhaps Prince Philip, who carries a torch for them because of his family roots.

I don't know if she will be there or not, but I really don't understand why it would be awkward. They are all young, modern people who would take the situation for what it is.
