It would be nice to see a video of the photo session. Does anyone know a link?

Am I the only one who woke up and smell the coffee?

I agree with you. I also have a little problem with the combination of the headline: "Secret weekend together" and the picture, where you can see that they are posing in front of the photographers. It seems to be half-official and not secret or private.

The press was invited but only two or three pictures where taken, that is veryyyy wierd!

UserDane 11-26-2007 08:40 AM

Was the press invited? Somehow I don't think so - and only one or two pics would indeed be strange then.

biboquinhas 11-26-2007 09:26 AM

Well I read somewhere that the press was invited, but maybe they took some pictures asn send them to the press. I really don't know becxause only a few pictures where release and even Isabella wasn't there!

Has CP Mary ever been to Schackenborg Palace before ? When CP Mary became engaged Alex & Joachim were in the process of spliting up so its doubtful they would have invited guests at that time. After the divorce Prince Joachim was rather at loose-ends until Marie, so probably wasn't inviting guests.

May I ask: Lives Prince Joachim permanent in Schackenborg? Where do his sons go to school?
Isn't it easier - for Crownprince Frederik and his wife - to meet Prince Joachim and Marie in Kopenhagen?

Joachim lives at Schackenborg, with a flat in Amalienborg in Copenhagen. Felix and Nikolai both attend, respectively, kindergarten and school in Copenhagen.

Denmark isn't the hugest country in the world, so going from Copenhagen to Schackenborg shouldn't be very time consuming. Probably nice to get a weekend in the province.

Thanks!
Yes I know, that Denmark isn't the hugest country in the world.
1 1/2 hour from Rødbyhavn till Helsingør... ;)
I just mean: If Prince Joachim lives also in Copenhagen - why wrote the press, that it is sooooo special, that they meet each other. They probably see each other every week... in Copenhagen...
Of course it is nice to get to Schackenborg. I know - it is nice there...
I just have a little problem with the media and the headlines.

I have looked thru various Forum/Boards and as yet have not found any mention of CP Mary every being a guest at Schackenborg Palace. Have any of you found she has been a guest or is this her first time ????

GlitteringTiaras 11-28-2007 05:41 PM

I haven't found any photos that would verify that she was a guest Schackenborg prior to this recent trip.

Nonetheless, I'm going to assume tha perhaps she has; without the press knowing, essentially a private visit.

About this "one" picture (© HELLO https://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...-royals-1a.jpg) a German newspaper wrote, that Crownprincess Mary was very angry about the fact, the Marie adored Crownprincess Frederik (as you can see on the picture). Funny story - isn't it? ;)

Heike 12-10-2007 02:23 PM

Interesting picture.
I can imagine that somebody who doesn´t know Frederik, Joachim, Mary and Marie would think that Frederik and Marie are the couple who are going to get married in May....Haha
But I don´t believe that Mary would be angry with this specific photo.

I think Mary didn´t have enough time to develop a sort of friendship with Alexandra.
Although Mary and Marie resemble each other quite much in their appearance, I can observe that their personalities are very different. I think they would have a friendly relationship, treat each other like normal sistes-in-law would do, but I don´t think they would become close friends due to the discrepance of their characters. Here I mean that kind of friends with whom you can share happiness and sorrows and you can always run to her when you are frustrated.

She isn't angry with this photo, she is angry (this is not my opinion, it was the opinion of the writer of the article I mentioned) because Frederik and Marie were so close...

UserDane 12-10-2007 05:05 PM

Ohh gimme a break about all these silly stories that each and every 3rd grade gossip magazine invent about royals and celebrities being aaaaangry if they don't show all their teeth at the camera :bang: - sorry not directed at anyone but these stories are just so ----- silly :cool:

Madame Royale 12-10-2007 06:46 PM

Yer, it does get a bit much doesn't it, UserDane...;)

Nothing to report so let's make it up instead = sad!

Marengo 12-10-2007 07:10 PM

Well, that is the way some parts of the press are working for centuries now, though the segment is growing rapidly the last decades, so... Sad indeed but it sells, which is the most important thing to these publishers. Especially the German rags are close to the rediculous, if I would have believed them Maxima for example would have had 20 children by now and she would have burried 5 of them already!

Madame Royale 12-10-2007 07:53 PM

20 children? Burried 5? No wonder the woman's got a few lifelines...:lol::rofl:

I never give credence to anything magazines have to say. There have been things spoken about my employer in Australian and French magazines that I know to be pure invention. You learn to have a laugh about it, infact, I think you have to in most cases. When the ledger is pushed then enough's enough but otherwise see it off with a smile and wave.

Marie and her relationships with other members of the DRF

I saw someone say that they didn't think Marie and Mary would be the best of friends, is that because of Mary or Marie? I never thought Alex and Mary had anything in common and maybe Marie and Mary would be better friends.
I dont really think that it is necessary for them to be friends as such, I think that what would be good though is for them to get along well (which there is at least some suggestion of, as Mary organised the party for Marie didnt she?), to support each other (this could mean Mary helping out with things such as Marie's Danish lessons, and adjusting to the media attention and official duties - or alternatively giving Marie more space to find her own way 'herself') and just generally behave in ways which are condusive to a great (extended) family relationship.
