I like Mary's hair and blouse. I think she should have worn a nice Malene Birger skirt with a nice pair of blue Prada pumps to complete the look. I really like hair layered hair though.

Must say I really like the wedding china they received from the danish people, with their monogram (which is beautiful)...great gift, better than the pot they received last week.

CP Mary's outfit was fine. The only problem is that she wore together for the blouse and pants dark colors. The whole outfit would have been better if she wore a blouse with a lighter shade. Not also something which nearly compliments the pants.

According to a news report, Denmark's Crown Princess Mary was recently stopped by Danish police for driving at 140 kilometers per hour (about 87 miles per hour) on a highway where the maximum speed limit is 90 kilometers per hour. The article says the princess will not be charged with speeding because, as a member of the royal family, she enjoys immunity. More on this story (in Spanish): La Policía danesa detiene a la Heredera Mary.

LTR members what do you think of the latest report about the princess' driving?

In my own opinion, there is one advantage of being a part of the Royal Family, you would enjoy immunity. But I think sometimes this is abused.

Even though the Royals have a higher place in any country than the ordinary citizens but they should not be exempted from the consequences of not abiding by the laws of the country over various matters. If they are stopped by the police for overspeeding they should then pay any fine if ever that is what is stated in the law. There should be no exemption because even if they are royals, they are all citizens of a certain country and they are expected to abide by the laws. They should even be examples.

I agree with you. Being royal should not exempt you from abiding to laws.

Paulette-you say they should be exempted from some laws, but not all, what laws do you think they should be exempt from? It seems to me that something as minor as speeding (unless it causes an accident or something of the like for others) ticket should be what they are exempted from, and the major laws (murder, purgery, etc.)* should be the ones they are expected to abide by. Otherwise what is the point of diplomatic immunity?

*These are just examples-I'm not actually saying I think any member of the Royal Family would commit any of these offenses!

Interesting discussion!

I personally think that as royals are above the fray of so many things (i.e. politics) they shouldn't be above the law, too.

If royals are to be role models for their citizens (and I think most of us would agree that some royals -- no names necessary -- are better role models than others), then what kind of example are they setting if they disregard such "minor" laws as speeding or parking in a no park zone?

From Britters' example (not pointing you out, just using your examples as a starting point!), to say that royals should be held accountable for more "serious" offences such as murder, but not necessarily so for "lesser" offences such as speeding -- where does one draw the line? If you and I would get a $100 fine for speeding then why shouldn't royals, too? Nobody should be above the law, whatever your social status.

And more than anybody, royals should be held accountable for their actions, good or bad.

Alexandria-I totally agree with you. My question was basically, where do you draw the line. If you are going to give diplomatic immunity where do the lines lay? I don't think Royals should be above the law, it just doesn't make much sense for people in such postions to be allow to get away with things they are suppose to be representing...however if they are going to be "above" the law, then wouldn't it make more sense for those laws that aren't being enforced to be the minors ones?

I have read on another board that in reality the report about Mary's speeding was made by a man who claimed he thought he saw her. That seems to be the basis of this accusation. I have seen nothing more substantial than rumor.

I agree in such minor matters as paying a fine they can well afford, royal families shouldn't be above the law, but I don't think that means mary should come under criticism just because by quirk of the state she does have such immunity.

As Alexandria noted: this is a very interesting topic!

I agree that royals should be held responsible for all of their actions and should not be considered as being above the law. They should accept responsibility for their actions and pay their dues accordingly.

Am I correct in remembering that when Frederik and Joachim were caught speeding by the police as teenagers that QM II made them apologise on t.v.???

i agree with paulette and alexandria. that's not a good example... also, the fact that mary asked the police not to tell the press about it seems quite hypocritical.
