She is beautiful and highly intelligent. But unlucky in love....is an understatement.

Hmm, anything that is related to making money by providing information about 'herself' is automatically making money because of her royal connection - because without her marriage to Joachim nobody would be interested in a portrait of 'the person' Alexandra - but let's hope that she is indeed doing so with a respectful distance to the DRF.
That's a reality she can not escape. Any one who was married to a public royal is not going to be able to escape that. There is always going to be some influence over job or income sources if it is gained by her royal status. No matter what career they follow post divorce plain and simple.

Now if she starts selling tell all books about the royal family, that is another matter. As long she is not actually using stories and information of the royals to get pay checques I see no issue.

Alexandra didn't have to give up the money. She voluntarily chose to give it up. She could have at the very least kept it until her sons were done school, and not simply 18.

I don't see why someone with a title would be any better for her in love, then anyone else.


Having a 'noble title' doesn't make one any more honest or respectable. Or even mean they have their own money and wouldn't take advantage of people. There are plenty of aristocrats, and royals, who have come up in major financial and legal trouble over the years.

I understand she cannot escape the reality that she is a former princess of Denmark but to me there is quite a difference between earning money by showcasing yourself (as she apparently intends to do) and landing a certain job -partly thanks to your connections- and working hard in excelling in that specific job.

Do you remember Alexandra's ex, Martin Jørgensen?
https://www.tvguide.dk/nyheder/2020/...aerdige-som-pa

He has been out and about since the divorce.

First dating an Eva Harlou.

Then dating a Gunnvør Dalsgaard, but that lasted only six months.

- Well, as you may recall Martin Jørgensen was left with pretty much nothing but his shirt and shoes - and he was mighty fond of partying and the jetset life style.
I have noticed his two latest partners belong to the celebrity segment, who is fond of partying and have money to spend and don't mind spending them.

I can't help feeling that both these two... eh... women became fed up with paying for Martin Jørgensen having a merry life.

He could of course try and get a job, but I guess it interferes with his social life...

I'm pretty sure his unwillingness to get a proper job is also rooted in the fact that every excess penny he makes will go to Alexandra as per the promissory note that was written at the time of their divorce.

Now that is a strong disincentive to ever earn anything!

Well, he isn't the only one in that situation.

But if he worked and cut down on his expenses, no exotic holidays, no weekly outings to nightclubs. Got himself a bicycle and bought some cheaper clothes and paid what he could for five years, he would be in a much better situation, where he could negotiate a deal reducing his debt.

Because as is, Alexandra is unlikely to see anything.
With this she would at least get some money back, and Martin Jørgensen would have learned a little humility simply by getting up in the morning and go to work - like the rest of us.
- And who knows? Perhaps he would be happier?

Otherwise, where is he to go from here? He is getting older. He has no money. His value on the meat-market and as a "funny companion" will diminish with each year. - And with no work and no official income he will soon have very few legal options available.

He seems relatively morally corrupt so I somehow doubt that would happen even though it would be the best solution for everyone involved.

He was too busy funnelling several millions from her account to his own to think of the consequences of his actions when Alexandra inevitably would find out, I suppose.

I fear you are right, alas.

Martin Jørgensen has gotten too accustomed to the nightclubs for him to change.

Wonder what will happen to him?

Unless he meets someone special or has another life-changing experience, I can honestly only see a deroute ahead of him. - And there are lots of sharks out there more than willing to take advantage of him.

I wonder if he would be tempted to do a "tell all"
That could be ugly for Alexandra! As he will have little incentive to spare her.

And now for something completely different.

Alexandra has today started in a part time job at Bang & Olufusen, where she will work in marketing and sale.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/grevinde-al...a-faar-nyt-job

She will among other things work with identifying new customer groups.
She will be working at their office in Lyngby, that is a part of the greater Copenhagen area.

- That's interesting! Not least because B&O is in trouble financially.
