I am sure even if it is a more private wedding Danish TV will broadcast it
(just like they did with the more private baptism of Isabella).
Whether international TV stations will broadcast it is not known yet.

I would suppose their Lingua Franca is French, since Joachim's dad has French as his first language, it is only natural that his sons also learnt it. Eventually, I suppose Marie will be learning Danish (and perhaps try to avoid the critique that her soon-to-be father-in-law got?!?).

The ring is gaudy and has a meaning, it will always remind Marie that she is accepted as she is and as she was in her new homecountry. I guess being half-french himself, Joachim has an instinctive understanding of how it is to leave one's country and settle in a new one - after all, he helped another wife coping with her first steps into Danish culture and I believe he has not forgotten how difficult this sometimes can be. Especially as Marie probably won't bring her parents with her like Alexandra and Mary could do. But I think it's a great help that the Royal Household has definately some French features and that both her parent-in-law are francophiles! Probably a lot of servants at court are able to speak English and French besides Danish, so she will feel at home from the beginning. As for coping with Frederick: Marie is the youngest sibling of five and has only older brothers, so I guess she is well versed in all kinds of male entertainment and is able to be a good hostess for her brother-in-law and their friends - the wifes of that circle will welcome her anyway...

Danish Royal Watchers

i was hoping for some family photos from the dinner last night oh well and btw i don't like the ring either. it's too wide/big and isn't flattering to her hand. i have one (that was my mothers) alot like this and i don't wear it because it makes my hand look wide and fat and is very uncomfortable, i'm wondering what kind of wedding band will look good and be comfortable.

I was hoping for some pictures of the last night dinner too! Maybe the arriving of the cars at Fredensborg.

Congrats to Marie and Joachim! Question though, since Alexandra's parents were living with Joachim, would they move in with her, or leave the country altogether?

Joachim said at the press conference that they had talked to him about leaving the country. I don't think they'll move in with Alexandra. Maybe they'll find a place near family someplace else - they do have other daughters than Alexandra, and as Christa is from Austria, they also have family there.

Sorry, but in my little ole humble opinion, but that ring really overwhelms her hand. The gems look like they've been pasted on.

With the resources these folks have on hand, Joachim could have gotten her a much more lovely ring and still had all the wonderful symbolism. But it's what they (not all of us) think.

I liked how Marie said she feels honored. I also liked what she said about having children how she hopes they will be "lucky enough" to have kids. I just thought those were interesting choices in words that demonstrate that she is likely quite down to earth.

It's shocking to me how so many negative vibes are already coming out in this thread and we have only known about the engagment for about 24 hours now. This is the first royal relationship that I have been able to watch blossom and grow, since I was turned on to royalty well after other royal marriages took place. So I am very much looking forward to watching for all the upcoming celebration. I think it will be rather low key from the standpoint of international coverage. But I have a feeling its still going to be quite a big deal in Denmark. I would still expect to see some foreign royalty. However, I don't know if we can get too caught up in comparing the celebrations because Joachim is not the crown prince and it is his second marriage. However, it is Marie's first marriage so I hope she gets the proper celebration for entering a new life as a princess.

I wish them happiness and a long marriage. I have to say the ring in my opinion is not very attractive it is too wide to me. I guess I just like engagement rings that look like engagement rings.

I like the ring - it would look smashing with a thin discreet gold wedding band with subtle inlays.

However, it does look a bit big for her hand - it does make her fingers look stubby.

If they marry on April 26 2008, I can celebrate two events. My 26th birthday and the wedding of HRH Prince Joachim of Denmark and Marie Cavallier. I keep my fingers crossed that this date is the wedding date.

I think it is wonderful news that Joachim and Marie are engaged. I am sure she will be a great princess of Denmark.

The danish minister of education told the DR1 news that the Queen had said, that Marie's name is going to be pronounsed with the danish promounciation.

In that way the names of Marie and Mary will sound very different.
What would the Danish pronunciation be? Similar to French or closer to "Maria"?

In the beginning of the engagement interview a Danish reporter told Marie how her name is pronounced in Danish.
IMO it sounds very similar to the French pronunciation of Marie.

Smile dress "rules"

At least the shoes are darker than the hemline. Some big store (not sure if it was Saks, Lord and Taylor, or some other huge chain that SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER) actually held a fashion show in Atlanta and didn't understand the outcry over having one model with a black and white dress, black stockings and WHITE shoes. It even made the local paper with all the ladies commenting how tacky but the stylist didn't understand why anyone would care, no one commented in other cities. One of the big fashion "rules" here that still seems to linger is no white shoes after Labor Day (for international readers that is the first Monday in September) or before Easter (late March or early April). To younger people it doesn't matter as much but for my age group and up it still irritating. My great-aunt (lived to her 90s) would frequently point this out. Then again, she also held to the rule that black is never appropriate for a wedding and black bridesmaids' dresses? Perish the thought! My cousin selected black bridesmaids' dresses and that's all I heard throughout the wedding--"black dresses, who would pick black dresses? This is not a funeral."

I'm sure that Marie's fashion sense will grow stronger as she gets confidence in her new role. Even Diana had missteps at first, when someone gets thrust into the spotlight details that may not have mattered before suddenly seem huge.

Congratulations to the couple! I know I would never want to take on this kind of challenging role, more power to her!

Sorry if this has been posted before but Alexandra has made a statement about the engagement: She said:

"Of course you want a great stepmother for your children and she is just that. I have seen how she is with my boys. I am very happy for them." She also said it was Joachim who told her he was to be engaged.

(from The Unofficial Her Highness Princess Alexandra of Denmark Countess of Frederiksborg Website)
