Relationship between Crown Princess Mary & Queen Margrethe
 
I was wondering how good/bad is relationship between Mary & Margrethe. I've read that Margrethe seems to be quite strict and powerful. Also Margrethe seems to be interested in history, art and so on, but Mary has learned economics. I just think that they are quite different people but personally I think that their relationship may be quite good. What do you think?
(I'm sorry if this thread have been previously somewhere in this forum).

Also, considering they don't really "have" the tiaras and crowns, everything else is pretty normal, I guess, for their economic class of society: big palatial residences and titles are just "normal" for them and all of their friends. And some super-wealthy people even have bodyguards, even if they aren't famous, especially for the kids. It might not be exactly "normal" to have bodyguards (if you're not like "Brangelina et al"). But I guess we all have aspects of our lives that are a bit freaky and abnormal. ;)
But on topic, I'd say that I agree with most posts here. Mary seems to get on well with the whole family. There are times when she looks a little tense. I think she worries a lot about how she appears. Maybe she's a little vain, but mostly I think she is a perfectionist. Perfectionist people look tense a lot, and most of them don't have cameras in their faces ready for the ultimate 'nose pick' moment. -;-)

Relationships between the Members of the Danish Royal Family
 
Thought it would be interesting to start a thread about the two women and their relationship and show photos of them together. Judging from this photo, they get along well. :flowers:

Thanks you for your post BurberryBrit. However, I think it's a little early to pass judgement on their relationship, and we should give them some time before making a decision especially one based on just a few pictures. I think there will be plenty of future occasions where we will be able to observe both women in action such as the pre-wedding events and the wedding itself, and don't forget the many post-wedding events when we can observe the new Princess Marie interacting with the Crown Princess.

Photos like photos. Nothing special.

We should waite year or half if we want to say something more about relationships of these ladies. Now all looks happy and nice.

udyusa 11-22-2007 03:40 PM

I have to agree with both of you ladies. It will be interesting to watch as time passes as to just how they Will act towards each other! I am certain that Mary will act as she always does, classy and regal. As for Marie, well she hasn't had the experience that The CP has had. Definately something to look forward to...

biboquinhas 11-23-2007 06:19 AM

I hope we could get to see both working together! Having events together!That will be really nice!

Australian 11-23-2007 06:28 AM

Hopefully, they will be sources of friendship for each other. I'm sure both ladies would like to have someone to discuss concerns and fun things. So they dont feel so alone in the family. What im trying to say is that they could look out for each other, cos lets face it, any royal family is daunting, especially for two commoners who married into the family!

carlota 11-23-2007 07:07 AM

perhaps we need to wait a bit more to judge this. i doubt both ladies know each other much yet!

the weekend together was a nice initial approach.

Lichtenstein 11-23-2007 07:52 AM

Most likely we will never know what relationship the two women have. Surely none of them will talk in public what they think about each other.

Doesn't anybody else find it quite telling that Mary and Fred were completely left out of the picture at the engagement? There were no pix of a cp couple attending an engagement dinner, lunch or even a big party...
There weren't pic of them before.
Marie evaded questions about Mary at the interview, claiming she wouldn't know Mary well enough. And she was very short about that.
And suddenly after there has been speculation about the relationship, there is "secret" weekend to which (mysteriously) the press was "invited".
Am I the only one who woke up and smell the coffee?

Alexandra - Mary - Marie
 
To which Princess (Alexandra or Marie) do you think is the relation to Crown Princess Mary the best? Was or is she more friendly to Alexandra or Marie? Is she still in contact with Alexandra?

kittygirlie 11-23-2007 08:07 AM

I would say that Crown Princess Mary was too short the sister in law of Alexandra to develop a deep friendship or a very warm relationship with her. Mary and Marie also donīt know each other for a very long time. So I think that they arenīt friends at the moment but maybe or hopefully they will develop a strong relationship to each other.;)

If you are you woke up too late :biggrin:
This has already been discussed in former threads and as numerous posters pointed out Joachim and Marie' engagement announcement was not about Frederik and Mary - just as Frederik and Mary's engagement announcement was not about Joachim and Alexandra who were not included in the official pics either - just as Joachim and Alexandra's engagement announcement way back was not about Frederik either.
The royal engagements in DK are about the couple who have just announced their engagement - and then their parents are included in a couple of photos. Wait for the wedding photos and enjoy the sight of all siblings of the married couple (have some coffee in the meantime ;))

I agree with you! Almoust all royals ussualy don't speak about such private issues.

Does Schackenborg still have the combined monogram of Joachim and Alexandra? I can't tell... Will Joachim's monogram change to intertwine an M in there for Marie?

Don't forget about this quite long time before Mary and Fred's wedding. I think that they has time to know more or less each other.

you don't need them talking. any other activities or gestures can indicate how close (or not) they are. letizia never spoke about her sisters-in-law, but she visited cristina in barcelona and meet them when they come to madrid for dinner (already a couple of times) and visited elena and jaime in their residence a couple of times (they also mentioned that letizia went to see elena because she got some dress made from a designer who had his shop right next to elena's house). she also took their children out and about. she never spoke, but we know they have a good relation and see each other often.

maxima and laurentien were seen out together while on holiday and mary and alexandra went to a fashion show together. perhaps we will see the same sort of activities between mary and marie.

acdc1 11-23-2007 06:44 PM

I hope that the ladies can get along well, and I'm glad that Marie and Mary maybe got to know each other better in this weekend.

dee4855 11-23-2007 07:17 PM

I think it might be nice for Mary to have someone so close to her age that also lives in the same "glass" house. Mary will always be the CP, that will not be taken away from her. Why should she be jealous of Marie. Remember how close Diana and Sarah were. At times they only had each other when things were going so bad.
