Hi bbb from what I heard of the interview she was asked whether or not she would be able to learn anything from Crown Princess Mary and she said she didn't know her well enough yet to say. Hope thats correct?

That was all I was able to get from her answer as well (thanks to that annoying commentator!)

I think it has a definate french upper class touch: asking the family first and deciding to wait till the actual marriage to move officially together sounds very formal, but I guess this was Joachim de Laborde de Monpezat, son of a French nobleman, proposing to the French demoiselle Marie Cavallier and not our modern Danish prince Joachim. I believe prince Henrik must be very, very happy to have hope for 3/4 French grandchildren and once the patriarch of the family is happy, all others may be happy, too.

I'm very happy for them and wish them all the luck and happiness in the world.

Oh, I found some more official pics, with the parents and Joachim's sons. Unfortunately, they are tiny:

Congratulations to the couple!
At the same time, Marie conveys an image of feline to me. I assume that there is a possibility of a hidden rivalry between Crown Princess Mary and Her Royal Highness Princess Marie

Wow, not that I'm suprised but I don't know if I'm pleased either. She has a lot to live up to following Alexandra, as Alexandra was a prefect representative for the royal family and for Denmark (I know, I know, I shouldn't be comparing, but its hard not to). Well, I just hope that Joachim and the boys will be happy.

Congratulations to the couple. They seem really happy together. I'm not surprised but I am surprised it happened so soon. I was expecting an announcement in the spring.

did Marie give any indication of her career plans? does she plan to continue with a job in the private sector or will she take on royal duties full time?

The official pictures are wonderful. Marie seems to be really happy, well who wouldnt. The great thing is that she does/seems to get along really well with the boys and that is something not everyone can handle, a husband with other children.
Love the idea the boys were included in some photos.

thanks ya'll for the quick answer imo not the most diplomatic answer, but the question is oddly vague and offputting, perhaps to catch her off guard. i mean a warmer response could have staved off the "rivalry headlines" that are bound to follow. the translator got on my last nerve but at the same time speaking english at a danish press conference i'm sure it was appreciated by the danes watching, i'm glad it wasn't in french so i could enjoy the little i saw.

am i the only one that wishes they'd stop dressing the little princes alike
they are such handsome little guys and decidely different i don't understand the matching outfits at all!
i'm disappointed don't we get a balcony scene?

Did anyone else notice that Joachim is very articulate in English and with a posh English accent? The accent seems quite different from Frederik's which is surprising considering they must have had the same tutors.

Marie looks lovely with a genuine sparkle. She did have her chin up in the air a bit during the interview, but I guess this was just nerves as she came across as very friendly in other photos/interviews. Mary had the same chin-up habit early on but thankfully that has now disappeared and she is back to her down-to-earth self.

UserDane, I love your measured tone and sense of protocol. Am actually curious whether you ever worked for the royal family. I guess we can't expect to know this but in any event, the royal family has a great representative/fan in you on this board.
