Sorry GlitteringTiaras! I'm very embarrassed!

It makes sense, but it's all still a very confusing business.

I am not one to knock people and I agree with the people who say they media screws up constantly. I notice many people assume the Crown Princess has a degree in law which my research does not show. Her degree is commerce/law which is basically a buisness degree with law subjects thrown in (in australia anyway and thats where I studied/grew up.) Her own interviews she tells that she did the buisness course to upgrade her GPA (grade point average) to qualify to do commerce law (it is usually harder to get into than commerce but not as hard as law). The DRF does not lie about her education but either from lack of presenting unneccessary facts or their own misunderstanding of the Australian university system seem to imply she has two seperate degrees one in commerce one in law. Marie may simply be a victim of them misunderstanding or wishing to present her in the best possible light. I know little of American universities but it is not uncommon to drop subjects or repeat ones that you have failed or transfer to other universities in Australia and take credit for what you have already done with you. I dont know if she has a degree and really she isnt going to be allowed to use it so it doesnt matter does it?? The media seem to be short of topless photos and sex videos so they need to talk about something.

The discussion regarding The Crown Princess degree and education has been established a long time ago. A majority of people, both on and off TRF's, already know exactly what she has as well as accomplished. Essentially, it was stated in stone from the beginning.

...And so it continues. Se og Hor's latest headline, regarding Marie's stay in NYC, "Marie: Illegal Past" (hence our F-1 Student Visa.) Click here to read their claims now.

Here is what Danes have to say about this Se og Hor story.

To clarify, initially in the Australian media at least there were different versions of her education given as backround information in articles though no one (to my knowledge) ever suggested a lie or fabrication and it was not in itself an issue, they were just running as many stories about the pretty girl about to marry the prince as possible to sell their papers/mags. I was attempting to point out that the media sometimes runs stories without checking all their facts. We have seen in the past one reporter quoting another reporter in vicious circles with limited foundation to the story and I felt that this may possibly be the case with Marie. I dont speak Danish so I am depending on the translations for reports in the Danish media but I think its a little early to knock the girl. I agree with previous posts that surely she or anyone else would not be stupid enough to lie about something that is so checkable. And am inclined to the view that this is at worst probably a misuderstanding. But then i am an optimist (occasionally) and I would hate to think badly of a young woman who is about to become a stepmother to two extremely cute young boys and the wife of a man who seems to deserve the best.

Yet we still know very little about Marie's family. Yes, she has 4-older brothers. Where do they live? Are they married? What do they do for a living? Is Marie close to any or all of them? Will any of them be "in" the wedding?

I don't think she needs a degree to be a good princess per se, but maybe the interest in this is because many of the other "recent" European princesses, including CP Mary, seem to be either very well-educated and/or have extensive work experience (with some exceptions, of course). Obviously one doesn't need a degree to be a successful princess, but there seems to be a recent trend of princes marrying very independent and successful career women (i.e. Letizia, Maxima), so maybe people have come to accept this as the new status quo/norm for new princesses.

Well, if it all goes pear shaped, at least they know where they can find a filling assistant...

I'm looking forward to seeing how well she scrubs up at white tie events!!

Honestly, I believe Marie will do fine and hopefully she'll be a great asset to the DRF. In fact, I believe she will be. Marie is polite, charming, and engaging, as seen in various interviews, so when it comes to stuffy white tie dinners and galas she should have no problem fitting in. Unless she chews (with an open mouth) and snaps her gum at one of these events.

I've had my reservations in the past, but I too think she'll do a fine job.

What I meant by 'scrub up' was her wardrobe and jewellery, not her manners which I'm hopeful will be reflective of a Princess....

I was just hoping that for once the press would leave a new princess alone. Why can't they practice what my grandmother used to say.. if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Marie is marrying a man who just happens to be a prince. Why cant they believe any of the modern princess married their princes for love. I know if it were me, I would definitely have to love the man because there isn't enough money in the world to make me want to live in that fish bowl. I would rather work hard for a living and not be rich and privileged then to have to live that constrained lifestyle. God Bless her and all the young princess.......

I, too, am curious about what she'll look like all dressed up. Her style so far has been more trendy than the typical "princess look" so I'm looking forward to seeing how she'll look "on the job", so to speak.

I couldn't agree more ! being a princess nowadays is basically equivalent to giving up any privacy that you may have had or will have - a very daunting task for any lady.

The annual report for 2007 (page 14) gives the following information about Marie Cavallier (and I guess the same information will soon be online in her official CV):
She had lectures (the actual Danish word is: she read) in international trade and economy at universities both in Boston and Geneva. And she is Bachelor of Arts from Marymount Manhattan College in New York.
In the last years she worked in the financial sector and before that she worked with IT and marketing.

Svensk Dam Tidning mentions it, briefly, in their latest article about Marie. If any Swedish members would like to give a short summary of the article, please do so. Members would appreciate it.

For all we know, neither of these are the true situation! It's so hard to separate fact from fiction these days.
In the Book Marie Cavallier - den Franske prinsesse by John Lindskog, the interview they did with Joachim's uncle in Point de Vue, which was released around the engagement, is summarized and she does mention her education: "I started at the business school Wellesley in Boston… … I have to admit to having big problems in the beginning because of language difficulties, but a desire to do it, and hard work got me through it. After a few years in Boston, I began to feel that the city was too European, so I left for New York, to finish up my Bachelor's degree... ... I came to Marymount Manhattan College, which was lucky because I felt straight at home."

It's also mentioned that she graduated in 1999 (no mention which subjects) and worked for Double Click, but not mentioned in what position, only that she loved it.


It will be interesting to see what the official CV will say.
