Mary´s weight

My goodness; it´s just my subjective opinion. All these statements that Mary is a size 12 etc. How do you know her exact size?? I don´t know her size, but to my eyes, I would consider her earlier roundness "fat" by my standards. And, IN MY PERSONAL OPINON, I thinks she looked a lot like Keely, that´s all. I didn´t say any one of them was ugly. Some of you did, though.
I will say I think Mary is "slim" now. I´ll bet no one is going to scold me for that, even though it´s again only a personal opinion.

Xandra, you are just as entitled as anyone to give your opinion, it is just the way you stated it that sounded a bit off.

Weight is a hurtful issue for many (whether they are underweight or overweight) , you did say Mary was " was so fat", that SO seems harsh.

I would never use the word "fat" to describe Mary before or now but as you say you have a standard that is obviously different from me.

Does anybody know what happens to all the bouquet of flowers that are given to Mary when she arrives at events? Again photos are lovely - Mary looks very relax and lovingly touches her bump in some of the latest photographs.

Eggaaaad!!!!! Fat ???
Even if she was slightly larger, who cares!
I mean does everyone in the limelight have to be a size 1 or 2?
I think the main goal here would be Mary's health and well being.
How sad for her that she will be critiqued by people who will make such insensitive remarks about her for the rest of her life.

Yeah, I think it is one of the negative side from being a public figure:o

When they were in Australia, all the flowers Mary recieved were given to hospitals and places like these later in the day.

Yes, Emmielou, you´re right in that weight is such a sensitive issue with ladies, and I think we are all conditioned to it by advertisements and all that. Pity; we should all learn to look at true beauty (intelligence, personality, kindness etc) instead of dress size, but that isn´t realistic, is it? But let me just say that I think Mary is very pretty (and Keely too), whatever I may have said about fat and alll that, which I didn´t mean to suggest that either lady is ugly. Truce?

24 JUNE 2005

As much of Europe is enjoying a sizzling summer, one royal pair found themselves having to bundle up during an official jaunt up north.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and his pregnant wife, Crown Princess Mary, donned winter wear as they continued their tour of the Faroe Islands, located between Scotland and Norway. With the archipelago's famously cool summer temps, the Australian princess found her cold-weather gear – in this case, a brown quilted coat and wooly hat – certainly came in handy.

Meanwhile, in contrast, another expectant princess was dressed in a cheerful fuchsia ensemble for the warm climate of the Mediterranean. Spain's Crown Princess Letizia, whose baby is due in November, donned the brightly-coloured skirt and summer jacket for a visit to the village of Sabadell, near Barcelona.

Here’s an article I found in the newspaper this morning. Even though it’s talking about their visit to the Faroe Islands, it’s all about Mary. I have typed it out because my scanner is playing up at the moment.

Mary’s Swell Faroes Visit

Faroe Islands: Born on one of the world’s southernmost islands, Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary has spent the past week on some of the northernmost.

The pregnant Tasmanian-born Mary and her husband Crown Prince Frederik have visited the 19-island Faroe group whose population is mainly descended from Danish Vikings and has been linked politically to Denmark since the 14th century.

It is high summer on the group, which is located halfway between the western coast of Norway and Iceland, but Mary still felt the need of a heavy coast at one stage, as she was greeted by Suouroy Islands children in their traditional costume (and weren’t they cute! :p)

The Faroe Islands now are largely independent but the Danish royals are popular, no one more so than the princess who was visiting for the first time.

The Impact of Princess Mary on the Danish people, particularly since she became pregnant, is such that if her child is a girl she will be the queen of Denmark under proposed changes to the Danish Law.

Laws now in place would see an older female forced aside if a younger male heir was born subsequently.

Royal News Demarks Princess Mary Plans Sidney Rock Concert

June 28, 2005, 12:56:24 Royal News Danish royals Princess Mary and Prince Frederik are planning a huge rock concert in Sydney.

The young princess - who is expecting a baby in October - will tour Australia in early 2006.

As well as the official visit, sources have revealed the young royals will help plan a star-studded music event to strengthen the relationship between Denmark and Australia.

The pair, who are said to strongly support music events, had already planned to attend the show next March, but are also involved in approving the line-up of bands behind the scenes.

They have reportedly requested a combination of both Danish and Australian bands to reflect the ties between the two countries.

The event is expected to resemble the format of the concert held before their own wedding in Copenhagen last year, when well-known Australian acts including Powderfinger - the princess's favourite band - played alongside a string of popular Danish musicians.

So far no decisions have been made on a venue, but it is thought that 'The Domain', a vast open space often used for concerts, is being considered. The expecting princess revealed that during her courtship with the prince she sent him a Powderfinger CD.

Her future husband returned the gesture, sending her a collection of Danish music, including material by the band Sort Sol.

Same here, I do hope the story is completely untrue.

For more pleasant news.

According to the royal website and the CPMEMB:) the Crown Princess paid visits to two of her charities yesterday June 28th. Mary visited The Children's Aid Foundation and The Danish Kidney Association
