What Advice Would You Give To Mary?
Now when she will be a Crown Princess and a future Queen
What should she think about?

I think Mary should be thinking about representing her new country well and developing a bond with the Danish people. Also, she should be thinking about what charity work she will preforme as CP and eventually Queen.

I think she should (and will) listen and read, and in action smile.

I would also say that she need to find a friend in a other royal family that can be her support in her royal role...

You don't need advice Mary. You have adapted to this life of royalty very well. It is obvious that Crown Prince Frederik and you are in love. From Smiley

Listen to your mother-in-law. She personifies royalty for many people. And don´t sweat the small stuff.

We think that for now it's enough if she just keeps on doing things as she does now! She has charmed most of the Danes and should just keep us amazed :p

And then she should talk with her mother-in-law, but maybe also try to talk to some of the other queens or crown princess who has tried the same thing as her(moving to another new country and get into the people and so!)!!!

Don't listen to all the mean criticism going around. You are doing a terrific job and your hard work is visible to all who care to see it. Also, I second the suggestion above of finding a close friend in the royal circle. Mathilde of Belgium seems like she would be a great friend and confidante.

Do the best you can because at least when you lay your head down at night, you know you gave it your all. Also, don't worry about pleasing everybody...No matter what you do, there are going to be people who will talk. It's just human nature to do so.
I'm back!!! Did anyone miss me?

I'd echo the finding someone in the same position as yourself, ie. a crown princess, to exchange ideas with. Crown Prince Haakon of Norway has said that he tends to do it with Crown Prince Frederik, because, while Norway and Denmark aren't exactly the same, it is nice to have someone to talk to who knows what you're going through.

She should let do of the modeling and the stiff unnatural smile. Posing, posing posing... she reminds me of Madonna's song and videotape «Vogue».

stop going to fashion shows, taking vacations, unatural smile, raising chin,and posing. Relax, do some real work, and learn the language better.

Am I the only one to find Mary «cold»? Not a warm and caring person.

I have learnt that some people who have a problem of shyness:o , give an impression of a cold shoulder to cover up their uncomfortability.

Stop looking for the cameras, it is so unnatural and most of all, unroyal. Stop doing fashion shoots and useless interviews. Maintain some dignity and mystery. Get in there and get your hands dirty and show that you want to and are trying to make a difference and contribution to Danish society. There is a difference between lending your name to a cause, showing up to receive a bouquet of flowers and cut a ribbon and then leaving, versus actually WORKING with/for a few causes.

Peace, Harmony & Balance.
