Mary must be one darn smart girl. I remember reading PF used to be the catch of the uppercurst in Europe. I wonder why both P of Denmark married foreingers, and commoners.

Why would not both P appreciate more from their fellow countrygirls? I wonder.

It seems like both went for the opposite attract, too.
Love has no boundaries...

Too much pressure and scrutiny.... and I think most Danes admire their RF, so elevating one of their own to that pedestal was probably kind of hard (IMO).

But both Joachim and Fred did go out with Danish girls and the pressure was there. You can especially see it with Fred's Danish gfs, there was too much criticism etc. Those relationships were never given a chance to flourish.

Did Mary and Frederik attend the funerals of Austria president or did Denmark send someone else?

Frederik was in attendance; Mary was not. I only saw one picture with him, and he's barely in it--shaking hands with Haakon across Felipe, Letizia and Willem-Alexander.

That's King Christian's nickname for the Crown Princely couple's 4 day visits to the cities Århus, Ålborg,Odense and Sønderborg traveling aboard the Dannebrog.

Hence the "love boat " tour :P

"love boat"
I learned that is the RF of Denmark's name for the Dannebrog .... so many princely couples have used it, after getting married ..... that swaying of the ship must add a special something to shipboard life.

Oh. Ok. Thanks. So, when is this little trip? Except for the scholarship thing, I haven't seen or heard much news on Fred and Mary lately. Or did I miss it?

Sounds like a great visit. Should be some lovely photo ops.

she could be having other more important duties than making official visits, i.e. producing an heir to the danish throne.

"baby making" ... yeah, that wouldn't surprise me ... get the "official bit" out of the way.
But would it be out of the way, really? Mary produces an heir then she must produce a spare and then what next? Maybe Frederik wants a small soccer team to call his own ...

why not be different and settle on one child, dispense with the "spare" and thus give Joachim's kids a greater sense of self-worth.

Mind you, a kid with no sibling ....

They should have more than one! Being any only child is really lonely!
