wow thank you for all this Muhler

It is interesting that the DRF decided to take a stand on this and that the magazine is sticking to their story.
Joachim and/or Marie must have been pretty mad.

I hope it doesnt offer a breakdown between the press and the DRF.

I dunno.

I don't think our Marie has been to Lithuania. It would be very stupid to deny it if she has.

So Her & Nu have either made up the whole story or been the victim of a hoax. Either way, I think it's very unwise of the editor to more or less say Marie is lying!

I also have a feeling that the DRF was waiting for Her & Nu to make a mistake like that and then they struck instantly the story hit the streets.
It could point towards Her & Nu have been given a warning by Lene Balleby at some point.

It could also be a general warning to Aller, who owns both Her & Nu and Se & Hør, that they have not been forgiven, on the contrary, and that they may still face a lawsuit once the Se & Hør case has been tried at court later this year.

And Marie's breasts is a fairly safe issue. Either she has been in Lithuania or she hasn't.
Considering how many gets a boob-job, it's not something that will make people jump up in the chairs and I imagine most women would consider their breasts a private issue.

It's no secret that Aller has allocated more resources to Her & Nu, perhaps as a result of the bad reputation Se & Hør still has - and negative stories sell...

I think it's safe to say that the DRF is pretty mad and I suspect they have decided to go all out on this one. If for no other reasons than to set an example.

Added: Breastgate has hit Royalista: http://royalista.com/118684/maries-b...s-royal-court/

Daily Mail has the story as well: Denmark's Princess Marie denies boob job after Her & Nu magazine claimed she had one | Daily Mail Online
Hardly surprising, anything remotely synonymous with the word: breasts is bound to end up in the British tabloids.

And for those who can see the late TV2 news at 22.00 tonight, they have Lene Balleby explaining why the court reacted.

Im surprised that the court released a statement and not let it pass. I do understand that they want to protect her privacy and the families but whats next, a divorce article and the court will jump on it. I mean, if the court does not release a statement when another story comes out then many people will assume it is true.

Tabloids will always write stories, whether it's true or not, we won't know but for sure it won't stop by the court denying it.

Her&Nu is not owned by Aller, but by Egmont

Billed-Bladet and Se&Hør are owned by Aller

I agree
And hopefully "official" denials from the courts aren't used too much because it can become a slippery slope .... "if a story isn't denied, then it must be true " sort of thing

must have gotten Joachim or Marie angry that day to respond

That's exactly why it bothers me a bit, too. From now on, are we now to think that every time the court doesn't deny a story, it's because it's true? And this is just stupid gossip hardly anyone believe, after all.

Here's my thought on the issue:

Perhaps, after the Se og Hor scandal broke, there was a meeting between the court and the weekly magazines, where it was stated clearly by the court that, unlike before, if they did not tow the line of the boundary set by the law, they would use the long arm of said law to go after the offenders when it came to the blatant breach of the privacy of the members of the DRF in other to have a sensational headline for the frontpage. It would no longer be business as usual, where the papers would and could print falsities as if they were truths and get away with it because the DRF did nothing. Her og Nu probably thought it was the bark of a toothless bulldog, and went ahead with the story, expecting the DRF not to notice, or if they did notice, not to do anything about it, as usual. How wrong they were, if, indeed, it was the threat of legal action from the court and the subsequent consequences that came with that that caused them to capitulate so spectacularly, which is what the editor more than hints at, was the case.

True or not, it is Marie's business, and she shouldn't have to respond. IMO, if she had work done, it was done very conservatively, because they look unchanged. It's not like she got the Dolly Parton package or anything!!

What's the big deal if she did anyway?! I don't get how it's scandal material.

A bit roughly translated (), here's another comment on the breast-story (as BT so charmingly put it), this time from Anna Thygesen, from the communications agency, Geelmuyden Kiese:

"You could say that the court has shot itself in the foot. If they hadn't denied the story, no one would have thought more of it, but now it's given all the press a reason to bring it up – several times, even. If the goal was to protect members of the royal family, it hasn't worked very well (...) If it's a new communications strategy, it has to be followed through every time [untrue gossip is published], otherwise people will think that the other stories are true (...) If they hadn't commented on the story, most Danes would've just thought it was a lie."

Thygesen also mentions how the Australian press also often write fanciful stories about Mary, and says: "That's why I probably wouldn't have chosen to use my denial-energy on the breast-story, if I was in their place".

I can't say I disagree with her. While I can sympathise that having stories like this written about you must be distressing, the DRF might have wanted to think this through a bit more before getting involved (but, you know, with Joachim's temper... ).

This is my reaction as well. It is strange that they took this approach when it was clear that they are setting themselves up for a slippery slope type situation. Did anyone even pay attention to the original story? I don't recall it but the Daily Mail ran a story about the denial.

I find that very plausible.
Considering all the crap that has been written over the years I find it odd if the DRF should suddenly "lose their temper". After all, they do have advisers to guard them against making rash decisions.

I kinda agree.
Of all the things to deny, why put energy on this story?
i think most agree that its her body and she can do whatever she wants...

the denial just made this non-story into a bigger story, more attention.

All they had to do was to have Princess Marie wear a tight jogging bra and a tight dress. That should have been a better denial then what they got them selves into. Assuming the story isn't accurate of course.

Breatgate goes on, but in a direction surprising communications experts (and dare I say the media).

Gallup has conducted a poll and the result is that a vast majority support the DRF (and our Marie) putting the foot down against the press.
55% believe it was wise or predominantly wise that the DRF put the foot down.
40+ % believe the DRF could do more of that.

Political commentator and royal expert at the serious paper Berlinske, Thomas Larsen (as a political commentator at least he is not uninteresting to listen to), says: "The Danes like that she (Marie) in this way shows she has spunk/character/will power/strength. You should not be mistanken that many Danes believe the media go too far. Not least against the royals. It's rare they fight back, but when they do, the Danes reward them.
Some would say it was unwise, but the public isn't buying it. There they too think that the line has been crossed when major lies are being fabricated in the press".

The poll shows that 71% has not changed their opinion of the DRF after this.
