You echoed my sentiments exactly. I think that had Mary been there the photographers would undoubtedly focus on both ladies and that is not right in my opinion. It's Marie's day, lets not steal her thunder!

When do you think will the wedding date be announced? Before or after the end of October?

IMO it sounds very similar to the French pronunciation of Marie.
It's like the French Mari (e) with an added "ye". Germanic languages tend to add a "j" (German pronounciation) or "y" (English one) after "i" when followed by a vocal like "e" or "a". It's easier to speak that way.The "e" is "ye" is not a clear "e" but like in "yes", without the "s".

A friend of mine is called Viviana (after the Catholic saint) and the name is spoken "Vivi-yana". Same with Mari-ye.

Hope this helps.

I think they''ll fix the date once the most important guests they want to have there have confirmed the date. If they want to invite Haakon & Mette-Marit and/or Victoria as they are cousins of the groom, they have to check with the Norwegian and Swedish court first to find a suitable date. And then they'll go public with the date.

I saw a part of the interview on youtube. I am sorry if this was asked before but I haven't been reading all 18 pages, but did they only speak english at the press conference? The english of Prince Joachim is very good btw.

Marie seems a lovely and modest lady, with some sensible comments too.

Very orangy gold, loud design and loud colours, it says a lot about their taste.

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.

Yay! A royal wedding to look forward to! When I first saw a pic of her at hellomagazine.com, I thought she looked so young! She's really very pretty (of cours), how fun!

Yes. As Marie does not speak Danish yet, the language of the press conference was in English.

wow. I am so appalled at all the nasty comments being directed Marie's way in this thread. I am tempted to go on YouTube and put up my own "Chris Crocker style" video: "Leave Marie alone. She's a human!"

i was looking at some photo's of mary and marie and they look very much alike they have alot of the same facial expressions

i was very suprised on Prince Joachim accent his english is very well spoken much better then fred's .

Here's the jewelry designer of Marie's engagement ring.
Rosgaard Collection

I wonder if it would have looked better if the 3 stones were set flush against the gold rather than sticking out in a prong setting. It's really not one of my favorite designs. The wide gold band seems better suited for men. But there is a nice diamond eternity band that's perfect as a wedding ring.

Prince Joachim said that he designed the ring himself and the designer executed it. Meaning, Marie had no say in the ring. But perhaps this is what Marie likes. The wide band resembles the Goerg Jensen ring that Prince Joachim gave her earlier in the year.

I finally found a video link of the press conference that I could hit and heard the announcer pronounce it. It was very close to the ma-ri-ye description.
Thanks

The one thing I do like is that it's yellow gold and not platinum. If I wanted a "silver" look I would use silver, not pay an extreme amount of money for platinum or "white gold".

I like the ring in and of iteslf. but i dont think it makes a good engagement ring because it will clash of many of marie's outfits.

a simpler ring with just one or two colors goes with everything.

The thing about silver or sterling silver is it tarnishes and becomes black in time. Platinum maintains its color and its very light. White gold tarnishes to a very slight/subtle yellow hence most jewelers plate white gold with rhodium. This rhodium plating is usually not disclosed to buyers unless you ask. Some people prefer the rhodium plating while others prefer pure white gold.

Based on the two rings that Prince Joachim has given her, Marie seems to prefer yellow gold. Her jewelry at the interview was mostly yellow gold too: the diamond cross pendant and chain were in yellow gold and the bangle she wore was also yellow gold.

Congrats to the couple, and I do not think the engagment took me by surprise. If Prince Joachim's ex-wife does not marry Martin, do you all think there will be a wedding bell for Prince Joachim? I have expected there would be a wedding bell for Prince Joachim ever since his ex-wife remarries.

As for Marie, herself, I don't know the woman so can't claim to know what she is infact like, but I have noted a certain childishness in her manner. Over time that shall most probably cease but notheless, it's an impression I've long reserved.

Your opinion (respectfully) and I don't dispute it, but silver? And for an engagement ring?

just watched the youtube video -must say I'm not so much impressed by her, as by him - he's very charming I think. She comes across better in pics than in person (moving image) for some reason. Joachim seems pleased with her and in love, hope it lasts this time. They look good together definitely.
