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!
