You're right he does turn 40 On the other hand the DRF celebrated Henrik's 70th birthday within a month after F&M's wedding, so perhaps it won't deter them.
I don't know how many the church at Schackenborg will seat - only remember that when prince Felix was baptised there the TV commentator said the church was relatively small.
Don't know if Schackenborg would be large enough for the celebrations; even if the wedding is to be low-key, they would easily invite 100 guests or more I guess?

I wonder what Marie will bring to the table. She has a very bright personality. I wonder what her interests are? It will be interesting to see how she develops. She seems to have a lot of spunk!

You know, everybody is comparing what Marie looks like to Mary, but while going through Madeleine's excellant-as-always pictures, you know who she reminded me of?
Princess Anita! (wife of Prince Pieter-Christiaan, Prince of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven, nephew of Queen Beatrix)

If Mary and Anita had a shared half-sister, that would be Marie!

Fabulous congrats to them. I wonder if Alexandra would actually bow to Marie I don't think so.

Yep, I read about that. She made it pretty obvious what was about to happen.

I have two questions for you all. 1) Why did they speak in English at the press conference and not in Danish? And 2) If they got engaged in the beginning of summer then why did they have to wait so long before announcing it?

Perhaps they waited to announce their engagement until after the Queen announced it to the Government Council; just like MandF's. Anyway, I look forward to lots of interesting scenes and, of course the wedding. Can anyone tell me how to access Danish Royal Watchers so I can see what they can add?

I mean, nothing of this was really bad but discrete? Certainly not. We got all those infos from her and I think her behaviour towards the press was quite different than that of Mary, Maxima and Mette-Marit.

My remark was not meant as a criticism, it was simply a reply to someone who said Marie proofed she can be discrete because she didn't say anything about the engagement. As a matter of fact she gave the press a hint.
Her behavior is different from mary , maxima etc but I personally like the differences because i think those were different situations. this is joachim's second marriage, he is older and there are children involved. he's already had his big romantic wedding when he was younger. its all different now.

i thought their oppenness suited their situation. (it wouldnt have suited Mary or mette marit)

i suspect marie and joachim made a joint decision that she would be the one to tell the press. it would be much harder for him as a royal.

and again, nothing marie's ever said has gotten her into hot water. she's just made very innocuous statements. i dont think - in light of their situation - that her talking to the media at all is inherently indiscreet.

I don't understand why all the comparisons already! Yes they look alike but they are two completely different people! Never put people in the same box just from looking at pictures. Marie was sweet and polite during the press conference. SO what if she let a few things slip to the media she has been engaged for months I would find it hard to keep quiet if I was engaged to an attractive man like Joachim. Give a girl a break!
Also, if we are judging her by the outfit (which I happen to think looked lovely) what can we say about her future mother-in-law who appears to have a terrible fashion sense. It is not the clothes that make a good princess

Its unfair to judge Marie so early. We havent seen her doing anything yet for us to compare. Every royal is & will be different than the other. If Marie & Mary dress, do things like one another, its normal. Theyre married to brothers & Mary might teach Marie things the way she does therefore Marie will act like her.
Give the women a break please...

...aahhhh, but queen Margrethe and fashion are never mentioned in the same sentence - Margrethe dresses like.... Margrethe Just like you wouldn't mention queen Beatrix and nice hats in the same sentence. But the hats are undoubtedly Beatrix!

Madeleine Glindorf, your pictures are FANTASTIC!

Marie and Joachim both look so happy during the press conference.

Someone asked why they spoke English during the press conference, I think that is because Marie doesn't speak enough Danish yet to do a press conference in Danish

They could have spoken French? But maybe it is not so widely spoken in Denmark as English?
Congratulations to Joachim and Marie. I wish them all the best.

Oh, this is great. Hope they will be very happy together. Marie will look beautiful as a bride. She seemed very happy today as Joachim too.
