To me she looks equaly interested in the pictures from rio and in the pictures from Florence, I see no difference in her eyes...
Maybe she did not feel good, but I don't see how can one tell if she's interested or not by the picture of her eyes, when she's smiling, looking at people, talking (at least it looks like she was talking) and taking pictures?

My family was lucky enough to visit your country two years ago, and it is indeed very beautiful.

The Danish Monarchy - The Royal House - HRH Princess Marie
Acording to the official page, Marie speaks English, Italian and Spanish and she is learning Danish.

Oh, she smiles a lot when she arrives but then she had to endure a tour of an ancient monastery which houses mainly the offices of the president of the European University Institute. Not much to delight in there... a day of duty. Not the "Visit to Florence" feeling at all.

All I see is the low-born, non-graduate Marie Cavallier - a lovely person I am sure - being escorted around places of high culture. It takes a great deal of effort to consider Monsieur Cavallier's daughter as a valid representative of one of the oldest, reigning dynasties in Europe. Some, like me, just cannot achieve this.

Well, I would assume, if the representatives "of one of the oldest, reigning dynasties in Europe" decided that "the low-born, non-graduate Marie Cavallier" is a suitable person for the job, I think they do know what they are doing. Why would someone question their decision - I don't know.

And, I would appreciate if you would elaborate on why you cannot "achieve" seeing Marie as one.

Do you have any problems with "low - born, non - graduate" people?

How can Marie be non-graduate if she has a Bachelor of Arts from Marymount Manhattan College, New York ?

I do agree.

I also wondered what she was doing in Italy.

The danish press has also wondered about her Cv.

Se og Hør: Marie Cavalliers CV er fup - hun var kaffebrygger - Avisen.dk

"A fierce and well-educated business woman. It is the image that the Crown would have wanted to give of Marie Cavallier, who d. 24 May marries Prince Joachim, and thus become Denmark's new princess.

But today ShowHype prove that Marie's CV might not be quite as flashy.

During the engagement the Court gave a piece of paper that circulated among journalists, which amongst other things that Marie has a bachelor's degree in marketing and IT from Marymount Manhattan College in New York, and she has studied business and economics in two years at Babson College in Boston.

Something like several media, including News newspaper, wrote about.

But it turns out that is not entirely correct. For according to ShowHype who have sought out Marie's past in both Boston and New York, Marie has no such exams.

- Some people make a big impression on others. Marie left no impression of importance, says Michael Chmra has inspectors at Babson College in Boston, where Mary moved in 1994 and after two years of school left it without a diploma.

After her parents paid 110,000 dollars annually for 3 1 / 2, so Marie could move to New York and then, as the press was led to believe, take its highly acclaimed Bachelor of Science degree in marketing, trading and IT at Marymount College.

But Marie studied liberal arts discipline, which is a very soft and general education, which according to David Nye, professor of American studies at Southern University, has little thesis about it. It writes ShowHype that has come into possession of the official papers from Marymount College.

After studying in New York spent Marie Cavallier and a half years as a trainee in the firm DoubleClick, where she, according to the magazine helped with coffee brewing and data entry into company computers - that is the closest she was seven years came on the marketing, commerce and IT, before she in 2001 turned home Shweiz and joined his stepfather's company. "

And her ability to focus. Here the press ask "Are you bored Marie?"

That is your opinion. But if the former Ms. Cavallier is good enough for the queen of Denmark she should be good enough for us commoners, too.

The quoted source "ShowHype" is not really a reliable source for they mostly dabble in negative gossip. I think the official page of the Danish Royal family is more to believe than that and there they explicitely state that she has a BA degree. I looked up the academic requirements of said college and they accept prior proofs of academical studies (which Marie probably had from Geneva university and Babson College) after reviewing and verifying them. The College has the right to award academic degrees which are recognized officially.

That´s a lovely picture

Maybe Marie is not Einstein, but hey she has to represent Denmark. And she doesn´t fail. She always looks good and interested.

Thank you for researching and sharing the information Kataryn.

Keder du dig, Marie? - Royale - BT.dk

As a former liberal arts major I disagree with Mr. Nye. Obviously programs can vary among universities, but IMO it would be wrong to characterize them as "soft." My Bachelor of Arts program was not "soft." It was the necessary program that I was required to follow for entrance into the teacher credentialing program at my university. We did not have an undergraduate program for teachers. All credential work was post-graduate.

low-born does not necessarily mean low character or low intelligence
