I totally agree with you. The pink dress she wore in Australia, looked so much better on her a few years ago when she was a bit heavier, she looked so much more healthier and radiant. I think she has lost to much weight, some people are naturally very skinny, but you can see that she is supposed to weigh a bit more.

I agree, especially about the beautiful coral/pink dress.

She has lost some weight, but I like the fact that she still maintains an athletic physique.

She was pretty before, but I think she's even a lot prettier having lost some weight. She still looks healthy, and very elegant!

From Hello: http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty.../princessmary/

MARY SHOWS SHE'S A PRACTICAL PRINCESS
1 APRIL 2005

Although she's one of Europe's most-photographed royals, Princess Mary has shown she's not afraid to wear the same thing twice when she's in front of the lens.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark's wife was stunning in a deep purple gown as she attended an anniversary dinner celebrating four centuries of trade between her adopted country and the Netherlands. But to the keen eye, the opulent velvet gown with satin draping may have looked familiar – she also wore it to a gala event in New York earlier this year.

The Australia-born royal isn't the only new crown princess who has demonstrated a willingness to recycle favourite ensembles, though. Crown Princess Letizia, married to the heir to Spain's throne for less than a year, reappeared in a red silk skirt she wore to Frederik and Mary's wedding just one month after the nuptials.

1. Crown Princess Mary, in an elegant purple gown, chats with Belgium's Princess Laurentien at a dinner party in Denmark

2. The luxurious number made a previous appearance at a New York gala in February

Looks like someone at Hello saw your post Alisa. The new photo caption now says:

Does anyone else feel like Hello gets their ideas for stories from the TRF board?

Thanks for the pics!

Mary looks dashing in that gown, and Laurentien looks very good too (ooph!). For as far as I can tell, her dress looks very similar to the one Letizia wore to Denmark. Laurentien's jewellery is amazing too.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hello and few other publications that cover Royals got their inspiration from TRF and maybe even some of the other boards.

I agree that Laurentien looks wonderful. If only she could pull herself together and dress this way more often. Sometimes her clothing is just so awful!

Hi! I've never posted here before, but I thought some of you may be interested in an article that appeared in an Australian magazine that centres around some criticism Crown Princess Mary has drawn from the Royal Court about her being too glamorous (I’m paraphrasing here by the way, these are not my own words). I don’t know how much of the article is based on fact cause it's a trashy, gossip magazine but if anyone's interested I can post the article... might give you all something to discuss... Just let me know.

Yes, please post it. I´m sure we can have an interesting (but nice) discussion on it.
I´ve noticed, that lately many tabloids have started to bash Mary (mostly because of her so called "arrogant behaviour") I hope at least the tabloids in Denmark go on with their friendly reports. It must be like hell, when you were praised to the skies for 1,5 years and suddenly the rags start to search for mistakes and to give you an image of being arrogant and superficial :(

Why do some members of the press think Mary is "modeling"? Because a cp chose to dress nice for royal events and duties...all of a sudden, she's a model? What's up with that?

I think it has more to do with the number of fashion spreads and magazine articles CPM has posed for.

Vogue and to some extend Dansk, were actual fashionshoots and were made for fashionreasons. Women's weekly and Sunday Tasmanien, were just the kind of pictures, that usually are taken, when people give interviews. In Sunday Times almost every picture were taken together with Frederik. All the members of the DRF, have through out time, had pictures taken when giving interviews. Of course they have nice clothes on, but that does not makes it fashionshoots or moddeling. Princess Alexandra has done several. The most recent was the interview for Costume, where she also posed for the camera.

Rekordindsamling

26,2 millioner kroner til Kræftens Bekæmpelse
Kronprinsesse Mary støtter Kræftens Bekæmpelses landsindsamling, her giver hun sit private bidrag i Fredensborg til de lokale indsamlere - Mor og datter: Iben og Bolette Rasmussen.

Kræftens Bekæmpelse nåede ved landsindsamlingen søndag 26,2 millioner kroner. Det flotte resultat blev samlet ind af ca. 25.000 frivillige over hele landet. Det har været indsamling i 270 af landets kommuner.

Hendes Kongelige Højhed Kronprinsesse Mary støttede landsindsamlingen ved at opfordre til:

"At vi alle er med til at hjælpe dem, der hjælper andre".

-Og det gjorde befolkningen. Vi er meget taknemmelige over det flotte resultat og over, at så mange er parate til at støtte den vigtige kamp mod kræft, siger Anne Thomassen, formand for Kræftens Bekæmpelse.

Anne Thomassen retter en stor tak til de mange tusinder, der har brugt deres søndag på at samle ind til Kræftens Bekæmpelse.

-Det er et imponerende resultat, og vi er glade for, at der var så mange unge blandt indsamlerne, siger Anne Thomassen.

Temaet for indsamlingen var: "Flere overvinder kræft". 30.000 danskere rammes hvert år af kræft, men stadig flere vinder over deres sygdom. I dag er der over 200.000 mennesker, som har vundet over kræften eller lever med sygdommen.

De indsamlede penge bruges til forskning, patientstøtte og forebyggelse.

I Fredensborg-Humlebæk var der i 2005 ialt. 75 indsamlere, og de fik ialt 118.000 kr.

i 2004 indsamleder 105 personer 117.659 kr.

Perhaps you did not get a chance to read Michelle Cazzulino's excellent article in the Daily Telegraph, calling this article to task for the need to attack the princess for being too glamorous by using the scurrilous "insider reports". Mary is working hard for her new country, how callous that tabs use her face to sell their trash. All the Crown Princesses are working hard and should all be afforded time and respect for the overwhelming jobs they have assumed. JMHO http://dailytelegraph.news.com.au/st...toryid=2913730

Cancer Society collects record sum

The Danish Cancer Society collected a record sum of DKK 26.2mn during its national collection drive on Sunday

Nearly 25,000 volunteers from the Danish Cancer Society fanned out across the country on Sunday to raise money for prevention, treatment, and research of the deadly disease. Their efforts paid off, as they collected a record sum of DKK 26.2mn (EUR 3.5mn).

Crown Princess Mary, benefactor of the society, offered her encouragement to the collectors and donors.

‘It’s important that we help those who help others,’ she said.

Chairman of the Cancer Society Anne Thomassen expressed her appreciation.

‘We are grateful for the excellent results, and that so many people are ready to join in the fight against cancer.’

She also thanked the many volunteers who used their Sunday to knock on doors and rattle the collection boxes: ‘It’s an impressive result, and we are happy that there were so many young people among the collectors.’

Each year, 30,000 Danes are diagnosed with cancer.
