Marie on the cover of BilledBladet where she gave an interview
http://www.billedbladet.dk/sites/bil...?itok=Q0CCLv9I

in this preview, she talks a little bit on her relationship with Mary and Frederik
Prinsesse Marie til BILLED-BLADET: Sådan er mit forhold til Mary og Frederik | BILLED-BLADET

"- They are so sweet. They are busy and so have we. So it can sometimes be difficult to find time to meet. But when we meet, it's very cozy. Both couples have the four children, so there is time for it when we meet. All eight children have great together, says the princess

"- It might have been difficult, but I feel very fortunate. Our family is very natural. A warm family, says the princess, who also finds good support in Princess Mary, themselves have been in the same situation as Marie.

- Crown Princess will of course also from a different country, so we talk together and exchange some items. It's good to have good support in the family, like my husband, of course, have been."

another part of the interview
Prinsesse Marie åbner op: Sådan er vores hverdag - Herognu
where she talks about their new home and how they have little help.

"There is no cook at home in Klampenborg, so replace Prince Joachim and Princess Marie to cook for the family, and there are no hard feelings from Prince Joacim the prospect to cook - he is in fact happy to be in the kitchen ."

on having Nikolai and Felix over
"- It is so important to give space and show them that it is still their home. Although the prince and I now have two children, so it is important for me that I am the same to all four. There is no difference. There must never be one who feels that there be two sets. They should feel at home and be comfortable with us, says Princess Marie Jyllands-Posten and reveals that Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix come as often as they like - they must, however, remember to give notice if they want to eat with ."

Daily Mail have discovered our Marie it seems: Is Princess Marie of Denmark a right royal copycat of Princess Mary? | Daily Mail Online

Even though they are slightly off the mark in regards to Mary and Marie having an identical style. Even I can see that!
And apart from being brunettes with brown eyes they don't resemble each other much.
Instead DM hints that there might (could be/should be/must be/please let there) be rivalry between them.

Is it just me that thinks it would have been nice if they included her stepsons in the family photo They always try to present them as this united group, and Marie seems to be close, but then they leave them out of a family shoot.

I think it's fine. Sometimes when you take a family photo, not everyone is around. They are away at school, camp, their other parents.

It's not like its a habit that Felix and Nikolai are not photographed with their father, stepmother and half siblings.

Some of the HOLA interview. In no way is this an exact translation. Just me summarizing a bit

They met HOLA at 11am in the morning at Christian VIII Palace

They asked Joachim what threw his attention to Marie when they first met. "Do you have any doubt" answers Joachim and laughs. He said he was one of the few that spoke french so they sat together and talked. He was still married and notes that the romance began much later
what are the better qualities of your wife, she is popular in Denmark?
Joachim: Marie has the ability to impact the people's heart directly. She tries to put herself in other people's shoes. She is also pretty and photogenic, but once you talk to her you know that there is more to her.
Joachim about Nikolai and Felix: they are both good boys with great character. They are also older and can take care of the younger siblings and teach them new things. It helps the family unit
Joachim: Henrik also has a good character but he can be a bit stubborn. Athena has a strong attitude and when its her and the boys, its is her who governs . she is the viking of the family They are both normal kids that we try to teach to behave when at events and to smile at the photographers. Its a normal upbringing, Henrik doesnt like being called prince at school.

why name them Henrik and Athena?
Marie: I have always like the name Henrik even before meeting Joachim. Athena is a very strong name that I have always like and has a beautiful history

How was growing up with the Queen as your mother? the public love her, can you talk on her personality?
Joachim:My mom became Queen when I was two, for me she was always the Queen and I became aware from a young age that she as a mother would not be at home all the time. She has always been interested in the government and even at the age of 31 she took her role seriously. Besides her role she is an artist that loves to draw, paint..My father plays the piano and writes, I grew up in an artsy home

What has been the biggest obstacles in becoming a public person?
Marie: that everyone has an opinion on you. Its difficult but I learned quickly that you cant please everyone and you shouldnt try to.

You left New York after the attacks of 9/11. Do you think it was destiny to meet Joachim after so many years away from Europe? Did you imagine being princess of Denmark?
Marie: I spent 6 years in the USA, it was a wonderful time. Im convinced it was destiny to meet Joachim as i had no plans to return to Europe. I loved my life in NY and had finally found the city for me, but with the economy going down my company suffered and I wasnt able to renew my visa. I was upset at the time but I thanked God because look who I met, Joachim. It was destiny, you can do alot of things but loive and destiny have a way to write things in in ones life

Marie: Nikolai and Felix are incredible. I thought it might be difficult. I come from a divorced household, my father married three times and being a stepmother is not easy. But it was very fluid from the start. the boys are very nice and incredible, curious and intelligent. When they visit I treat the same as Henrik and Felix.

Was is easy to become the second wife of Joachim?
Marie: Becoming the third princess consort, after princess Mary and the first wife of Joachim, was a challenge. It was difficult to form my role, and have patience,. I learned to find themes to focus on that were of interest to me and that I felt secure in

I learned from the Queen the sense of duty. She is a very intelligent woman, her and Joachim are like twins in talking about history

Almost 8 years of marriage what is the secret?
Marie: Love, respect, understanding, commitment, liberty and trust.

Why sell Shackenborg ?
Joachim: it was difficult to maintain financially. My time attending to the farms took up alot of time and interfered with my royal duties. For many years i tried to combine the two but it was hard. I loved it there but also it was complicated with Nikolai and Felix visiting. They has to attend two different schools, we wanted to be closer to them in Copenhagen.

Henrik's retirement and a possible abdication for the Queen:
Joachim: He is 81 years old, and after 50 years of service, although with a lot of energy still he wanted to focus more on his art, literature and music. To enjoy his last years in peace and calmness. He will still support the Queen just not in alot of official events, but still be a loving husband, present father and fun grandfather.
My mother has made it clear. she will stay on the throne. In case she is not in condition to reign for whatever circumstance, it will be the Crown Prince that takes on those duties. So she will remain on the throne, we have grown up with this tradition (in the royal family) and thus we agree with it.

Thanks, Polyesco

There are distinct advantages of being the kid-sister in a group of siblings.

Additional trivia from various interviews that hasn't been covered here.

Our Marie don't like spiders! As such it's Joachim's job to get rid of them.

Don't don't have nannies. Only when needed at appears.
They don't have a cook and take turns doing the cooking. Marie doesn't have to force Joachim into cooking, she has said.
Like so many other families, once dinner has been eaten and the kids put to bed, they chill out in front of the TV.

Summary of note in Billed Bladet #06, 2016.
Written by Henrik Salling.

Our Marie turned 40 Saturday and she wished for a quiet and private birthday party. And that's what she got.
Lene Balleby says: "I can confirm that the Princess has been celebrated privately, but (I) cannot inform as to where and how the celebration took place".

But Marie has said: "It will not be a big party. Perhaps when the weather gets a little better. Then I'd like a party in the garden".

- So perhaps in connection with Joachim's birthday in June?
