Her maiden name was Tang-Lassen.

Quote from tv2vip:
Forholdet mellem den 42-årige prinsesse og den 28-årige fotograf havde i et års tid været en offentlig hemmelighed, da parret for første gang optrådte sammen foran blitzende pressefotografer i september 2006, da smørrebrødsdronningen Ida Davidsens søn Oscar og hans kæreste Britt Tang Lassen giftede sig ved et celebert bryllup i Marmorkirken i København.
This quote talks about the relationship between Alexandra and her new husband first going public at the wedding celebrations of Oscar Davidsen Siesbye and Britt Tang Lassen.

Yes, there it is, so now there is no question that it is Oscar who is Ida Davidsen's son, and she, of course, is the sandwich queen of Stockholm (or perhaps Denmark?),

Thank you, sgl.

Now, as to the article that was the source, there is a picture of Alexandra and Martin at a wedding, would this be Oscar and Britt's wedding, or someone else's?

No, she didn't, the two names are not hyphenated ! Davidsen is the middle name of Oscar, Siesbye is his surname. BTW the definition of a middle name is a name with "surname characteristics".

She most likely became Britt Davidsen Siesbye! At least that's the way her name was written on the DRF website in connection with the baptism.

Background:
A new Danish name law was inroduced in 2006, according to which you keep your own name when you marry, unless you apply for the name of your spouse!
The most obvious thing is to apply for the surname, but it is now also possible to apply for the middle name of the spouse. Sometimes a couple even combine a their names, giving themselves a hard time whenever they have to write their full names on the dotted line ..................

The picture was taken at the wedding of Britt and Oscar, which took place at the "Marble church" in Copenhagen in September 2006. Let me add that I happened to pass the church when the couple left, but I had no idea that it was a society wedding! I was exhausted because I had been following the coffin of the Dowager Empress of Russia, Maria Feodorovna to some, Empress Dagmar to us Danes, who was sent back to Russia on the very same day!

How interesting, about following the coffin of Maria Feodorovna and seeing this wedding as well. Some members of the royal family were in attendance at these proceedings, I remember seeing the pictures. A tragic story that is getting rectified. I understand that the remains of two of Nicholas' children are still not buried with the rest of the family.

In Spanish speaking countries, one is baptized with a first name, then a middle name (can be the feast day of the saint of the day of the birth), the father's surname, followed by the mother's maiden name. This way, it is fairly easy to trace a family tree, figure out cousins, etc.

Sometimes, a family will want to keep two names together (such as Davidsen Siesbye), and they will do that by hyphenating them.

When a woman marries, she keeps all of her baptized names, adding "de" (which means "of") and adding the husband's paternal surname. She never loses her family surnames. I think this comes from the Napoleonic code, but am not positive.

It looks like the new 2006 Danish law is following this system.

Here in the US, Mary Ann Smith can marry Robert Harry Thompson and becomes Mary Ann Thompson. The Smith is gone, unless she chooses to include it in her signature. Legal papers might ask for her maiden name as a way to distinguish her from all the other Mary Ann Thompsons.

Thank you, Viv.

It is! It's her paternal grand mother, Le baronne de Sairigne!

Yes, it is. Earlier this summer, Joachim and Marie took baby Henrik to her home in France because the Baroness was not able to attend the christening. Marie seems to be very close to her grandmother.

Marie's father has siblings I believe. At least one sister if I recall. I wonder if they are at all close with Prince Henrik's family. I believe I read that her father was an acquaintance or friend of theirs, but don't remember if they mentioned any of Alain Cavallier's siblings as well.

How did the Baronne acquire her title? Was she born with it, or marry into it? How does this peerage fit with Alain Cavallier? There must be a connection somewhere.

I'm not sure about the Baroness' title and nobility. I don't know how she acquired it (marriage or birth), but I do know that Alain and his siblings do not have a title. They would have been addressed by them on the guest list released by the DRF for the wedding and christening if that were the case. The Baroness was the only one listed with a title from Marie's side of the family.

Could it be that she, too, had several marriages, one of which was to a baron?

Nicely put Rylt11, the understatement of the day ; the observant DRF royalty watcher knows that the Cavalliers have had their fair share of divorces and remarriages! Odile de Sairigne, Marie's grandmother married into nobility at some stage after divorcing Alain Cavallier's father.

Does anyone know this baron's full name, or if he had children of his own?

Billed Bladet has an article about Agnete Arno, who is described as Marie's first and closest friend in Denmark. It talks about her style. She was one of the bridesmaids in Marie's wedding, and recently married Prince Joachim's good friend, Christian Scherfig.
Billed-Bladet - Prinsesse Maries gode veninde, Agnete Arnø - Se stilen

She works as a designer (doesn't say what she designs).

There has been no mention of her best friend from Marie's school days, Julie. Was she invited to the wedding?

I believe they wait for the boys' February holidays. Marie celebrated a birthday there last year-- the first week of Feb I believe -- with all the family coming up from Geneva. Quite a gathering !

It will be nice to see little Henrik all bundled up on some kind of sled maybe?

There is no information of the royal website, which I can understand.
Just this

Quote:
The Princess has four half-brothers, Benjamin and Gregory Grandet, both born in Switzerland, and Charles and Edouard Cavallier, both born in Paris. Like the Princess, all four half-brothers grew up in Paris.
