BB has an article and picture gallery of the love that is between Martin and Alexandra.
It says how they enjoy each others company and the 14 year difference between them doesnt stop the love they have.

Happy that love still prevails and that this love enables them to provide a good home for the young princes, which is, after all, the paramount reason for the home, custody, etc.

However, I never have found a man going out socially and in public in a half buttoned shirt attractive, nor consider that a dignified style, particularly when associated with a former princess of the realm who followed royal protocol and was dressed by designers.

It's a very big gap between the two.

Alexandra seems to have slipped into a very casual sort of style now, at least with regard to her recent attire.

She was so elegant, coiffed, well put together before, as a royal princess.

I must say, Alex's hairstyle has grown on me, sort of suits her new lifestle, far more casual than b4. She probably felt she needed a change, and now was the right time...

rylt11 12-24-2009 09:34 PM

Yes, she is far more casual than her former pictures. However, I can't say that the somewhat rumpled slacks she chooses to wear sometimes are becoming on her, or anyone else for that matter, be they royal, former royal, or just average person.

I'm referring to what she wore when dropping her children off at school on the first day, when she and P Joachim gave each other a peck on the cheek.

IMHO It is only natural for a woman in her 40's married to a man 14 years her junior, to adopt a bit of a more casual wardrobe. Alexandra has to look, feel and behave like a woman in her late 20's early 30's to keep up.
I am very happy they are in love and it is important, but to keep the fires burning she cannot appear in clothes she used to wear when she was a member of the DRF. She is doing the right thing by adopting a more care free, youthful appearance.

Trying to hard, I think. The outfit she wore recently, with a cocoa flimsy blouse, sparkly around the neck, sporty, chunky boots and a pleated, shiny skirt looked awful, absolutely awful. She also had earrings resembling chandeliers. She has lost her way it seems. One or two details would have sufficed. The only thing those articles of clothing had in common was color tone. It looked like a jumble sale gone wrong.

If she is worried about not looking 45, She can look trendy while maintaining a sense of style. It is a dreadful mistake for middle-aged women who have a slight build (small-boned, slim, and petite) to continue wearing clothes designed for those in their early twenties.

As lines start to creep in, she will be fighting that as well. Nothing worse than a youngster's body with an older woman's face.

Everything you said makes absolutely perfect sense. However it is an uphill battle fighting father time expecially when your mate is so much younger.
Thankfully there are surgeries than can turn us all into teenagers and I am sure when the time comes she will think about it.:flowers:

She is an intelligent woman who has shown she has good clothes sense in the past. Perhaps she will swing back from where she is currently and choose a more middle of the road approach to her wardrobe. She will look far more refined and less desperate.

Perhaps tucks here and there lie ahead for her, but she is still the center of much attention through her various patronages and should keep that in mind when choosing her clothes.

Surgeons don´t turn anybody back into teenagers, just to people looking good for their age (if they don´t exaggerate with surgeries) or to ridiculous masks (surgeries addicts). I hope she won´t choose the second way... I doubt her husband would appreciate it.

The TV2 online news reports that countess Alexandra's father, Richard Manley, has passed away, aged 85. He died at a hospital in Vienna - Alexandras far er død, 85 år - TV 2 Nyhederne

Did he live in Vienna ?

Anna Z. 01-13-2010 08:37 PM

Sad :sad:

Yes, according to the article posted by UserDane, they (have) lived in Vienna, Christina Manley's birthplace, for the past two years. Before Joachim married Marie, they lived at Schackenborg to be close to their daughter.

Katrianna 01-14-2010 12:05 AM

My condolences. It's hard to lose a parent, no matter how old a child is, you think your parents will live forever.:sad:

Yes, he and his wife moved to Vienna Austria, his wife's home town, in 2008

principessa 01-14-2010 06:29 AM

How sad. I hope that Alexandra and her family have the strength to handle the mourning. May God bless Richard Manley and his family!

antonieta 01-14-2010 06:40 AM

My condolences to the family.

stellad 01-14-2010 09:55 AM

It would be interesting to see who of the DRF will attend the funeral.

ladybelline 01-14-2010 10:27 AM

Very sad news. My condolences to his wife and children...:sad:

Maybe Prince Joachim will attend the funeral? That would not be surprising.

sgl 01-14-2010 10:51 AM

My thoughts go out to Alexandra and her family. I do think that it would be a lovely gesture if Joachim attended the funeral. It would be a nice way to show support for his children, who have just lost their grandfather.
