.. well but then Mary, Isabella and Ziggy would have been in the spotlight and the photographers might have had their focus on the cute toddlers.
It was Marie's big day and so I think she and Joachim deserved to stay in the spotlight all alone on their big day (and the day after).

Bioquinhas, don't worry. I also hope for a picture of Mary and Marie.. I guess we all do.. and I am sure we will get more then a lot pictures of the two women smiling into the cameras together..
The Family Christmasshoot, State Visits to Denmark of all kinds, the Family Sessions at Grasten Palace, official wedding photos, christening photos ..
we just need to wait for a while.

It must be nice for Prince Henrik to get a French daughter in law in the family.
I wonder if Mary speaks French

She taught in Paris for a bit before she moved to Denmark so maybe she speaks a smattering of french?

Perhaps Mary has since exercised an interest to learn a little French, but at the time of her wedding she would not have be noted as having learnt the language.

I think it's wonderful Marie is fluent in various tongue. I suspect Danish could be abit of a challenge for Marie, moreso than it has been for Mary.

I've read that English would be the most helpful to Marie out of all the languages she knows. Danish grammar and even some words are similar to English. It would have been best if she knew German since it seems to be the closest to Danish. However, I still think that being multilingual will be helpful to Marie. She's used to juggling more than one language and keeping all the rules and turns of phrases in her head.
Both Joachim and Marie have very beautiful voices. Although I must say that Joachim seems to have a bit more of a fluent grasp on English than Frederik.

I doubt he's quit smoking, I saw a pic of him with his son on his shoulders and a cigarette in his mouth. He must be a pretty heavier smoker if he has to smoke while playing with his son. I've also seen a recent pic of Marie smoking. I have no proof of this but...

I also liked his voice. I thought it was very elegant.

Joachim cuts quite the debonair image in a suit. He wears them so well. Lovely tailored finish, his kerchief, tie and shoes. This man know's how to dress to impress!

I also think Joachim is still a smoker; in this piece of information at TV2's website - TV 2 Vip - Frederik: Mary bad mig stoppe - it is said that the queen, prince Henrik and Joachim still smoke.
The article is about how Frederik quit smoking; he told a DR reporter that he quit after 'positive pressure' from his wife to be who said she wanted him to be around for as long as possible - and consequently he gradually quit.

She is back in Geneve maybe for packing her things and finish her labour life there because soon she will be living in Denmarl for a long time!

i can't imagine why it would be a bigger challenge for marie to learn danish, since she apparently speaks english, spanish, french and italian... (although perhaps we will need to wait until they release her official biography, as some may be at conversational level and not fully mastered, but the fact she already speaks quite a few languages at different levels, makes me think she will be quite prepared to learn a new one). are you mentioning it because she has less time than mary did?

Is there any whispers of Marie being pregnant? I have a sneaking suspicion she is......but I could also be wrong.

I know it happens to many families but I hope in this case she is not (yet) expecting a baby. It is really too stupid in this day and age not to take precautions considering who the parties are.

Why would you think that? I certainly don't share that thought at all. But if she was don't you think things would happen a little quicker for them. I mean they have announced their engagement and announced that they won't marry until Spring of 2008. Also Marie doesn't seem to be in a hurry to wrap things up where she lives as it has been stated she is not moving to Denmark right away. I really don't think she's pregnant at all and I wish there could be happiness without these suspicions coming about. If she were pregnant that means she would be at her biggest by the time baby comes. That certainly does not make sense to me at all! No woman would plan on marrying when they are expecting a baby around the same time frame.

Easy to explain .... she is french!

Frech people usually have an awful time trying to master the danish pronounciation - many never do. French-danish is a linguistic car crash.

French people can open their mouth 50 years after they have arrived and speak perfect grammar, but they can hide that they are born french. It is THAT obvious.

The thought "I wonder where that accent comes from" does not come into mind when you encounter a french in Denmark.

You are so right. Prince Henrik has been struggeling with the danish pronaunciation ever since he came to Denmark - and still he hasn't got it right. Marie is facing the same challenge. Though french-danish lingustic is like a car crash imo it sounds rather charming.

The video from Her&Nu is earlier then the press conference about the engagement. One of the jurnalists tell her, he has got some pictures for her. I guess the pictures are those mentioned on another thread on TRF, where we saw her holding a picture of herself and one of Joachim. On that thread some members critizised her for holding the fotos. Now we have an explanation. She was simply beeing polite in receiving a gift from a journalist.

But Prince Henrik has topped smoking a few years ago.

Is Marie under alot of pressur to learn the language or can she take her time in learning it?
I dont mean to compare the two princess's but Mary had to learn the language because of her future roll so i was just wondering of marie was under the same pressure. I do understand that she has to speak & understand it but how soon?

You've expressed exactly what I meant, Margrete I
Speaking fluent French myself and having been exposed to the Danish language through my travels and work associates, I can acknowledge that the transition between the two is certainly not an easy one.
