Well said gattica28. :)

As an Australian, I have noticed that Mary certainly speaks and acts differently that she used to, when she was dating the CP.

But, I dont think its because she is "affected" by her new life, just that she is very "aware" of the things she says and does, are often in the public eye..and she wants to do the right thing for her husband, and the sake of the Danish Royal Family.

I think her aloofness, is somthing that will in time soften, as she becomes more relaxed and comfortable in her role. I think she has done an amazing job in what amounts to only a very short 3 years or so.

I think her 'formality" is actually more her trying to get the public princess image "right" ..to please everyone, as opposed to it being snobby behaviour.

I think she doesnt want to look like shes too casual, or too sloppy in her public dealings. Shes a Princess now..but I think shes very aware that once..she was just an ordinary girl..and in order to be a real princess...she must not act in an ordinary way now!

I think with time..she will relax more..and realise that being herself....is just fine. She has poise and manners enough to be Princess like....I think its just her wanting to be so "careful" in getting the look right, that sometimes she seems a little cold, or aloof.

I bet she is very different when alone with her Prince!

I think that the Mary is very professional actress. She smile but her eyes are cold. I don't think that she are a bad woman. Also I think that she does a nice choice when married to Frederik. But we see on the photos not real woman. We see the celluloid doll. We don't see how Mary look in privat life, without professional photographers, without perfect make-up. We see not mutch photos of her real life...

P.S. I'm not anti-mary

I agree, Amely. We don't see private Mary but her official image only. But I prefer it this way. I don't want see royals just after they get out of bed or in very private situation. We know that they are humans too and of course they are not always glamourus but do we really have to see that? I would expect tham always appear in public looking good. On the other hand I think their life is not always easy they also deserve some privacy, so I think cameras should not follow them everythere.

Mary

Well, I only whished that Máxima has some of the style and the class Mary has!

Máxima used to be one of the best dressed royal ladies, in the mean time jas been passed by all other royal ladies, with Mary proudly having the lead.

Agree, Henri M. Mary is the best dressed crown princess in Europe right know. She also has that this something that caused look her glamorous, and some people hate her because of that.
Mary looked very oridinary as a teen, But still I think she had that something back then, btw she looked like a next door girl in this pic where she had a blue dress but she also seemed sweet.

I just want to say that at earlier Marys photos her eyes and smile were more sincere and benevolent than now. Now I can see her sincere smile very seldom. Often her smile look like "hollywood" smile.
That all what I want to say.
I remember when I look Mary Donaldson at first time and I think that she are shy, but very serious in her love to Frederik
And I not hate CP Mary, Lakshmi
P.S. Merry Christmas and best wishes in the New Year!!!
