I wonder if, after both Mary and Marie have firsthand experience with the media and must realise that their relationship, however it turns out, will make headlines, have decided to do something about it. For example check before an event they both are going to attend that they don't wear similar clothes or the same hairstyle in order to prevent being dubbed "the Denmark-twins" or something similar.

One thing makes me wonder, both Mary and Marie gave noncomittal answers when asked about each other, I would have expected of the CPss to say "I don't know her well enough, but she is very sweet, I am happy for them etc."

biboquinhas 05-27-2008 09:22 AM

Well I think they have it all to be best friends and it's a shame if they don't grab that opportunity! They are both the same age, both the same family, they will have vacations together, Marie will be mother son and Mary os already a mother that can help her so mucht!!! It is a shame if they don't become friends!!

How do you know that?

This quote by Mary:

actually isn't new.
So how do you know they don't get along quite well now and are about going to be friends? They don't know each other for a very long time yet.
And even if they decide not to be friends and just are sisters-in-law... then it's their own decision and I really don't see why that's a "shame".:huh:

But I donīt believe that Mary would be angry with this specific photo.


Oh for heaven sake, in this photo it look like Joachim is fasinated by Mary and could care less about standing next to Marie. How silly all this trouble making by the press is.

By the way, who said that Marie and Mary don't like each other? Is that another "story" started by the silly German press?

The so called "Silly German Press" never speculated about that at all.:huh:

Actually, that rumor was started by a particular group of royal watchers who are not exactly happy with the Danish royal family nor will they ever be. Unfortunately, that rumor has spread like wild fire through the Internet and now some believe it to be true.

Okay yes, that's quite likely. :lol:
... but at least they weren't the ones who started that rumors. ;)

I am a gr8 admirer of the DRF :flowers:, and I can tell you that it seemed a little strange to me that neither Mary or Marie acknolweged each other besides "I don't really know her, I haven't gotten to know her yet etc"

GlitteringTiaras 05-30-2008 01:30 PM

Really? I don't believe it was strange. Not all future sisters-in-laws are close prior to marriage. Both couples are and were extremely busy plus they have their own families to deal wih so barely knowing each other can happen and obviously did... sooo.

Besides the original question was, "By the way, who said that Marie and Mary don't like each other?"

Oh yes it is strange that someone who is in the public eye, cannot say something neutrally posotive about her future sister in law...:ohmy:We can't presume to know how close they are to each other, but silence is louder than a thousand words;)

GlitteringTiaras 06-01-2008 03:45 AM

Hm, well she said the same thing about Alexandra (noted in the long engagement interview) so...

I don't know, I don't find it strange, but I will say that it seems like some (not you or anyone in particular so please don't take this the wrong way) are always digging for something... anything... to create drama when clearly there is none. Just my two cents. :smile:

I can only speak for myself, I don't give 2 hoots if M&M get along or not, but when I read that each of them individually said a noncomital reply, a thought went through my head, "hey, I wouldn't day that about anyone engaged to my or my husband's family members" esp. as they dated for at least a year b4 becoming engaged and they must have had some conversation. When I saw a thread about this I thought I might as well put my observation onto writing. Hell, even if M&M really didn't know each other, they are in the limelight, say something minorly nice:mad:

GlitteringTiaras 06-01-2008 12:57 PM

Ah, I see. Well what are you going to do. Perhaps in time they may end up becoming BFF... or not. However, whether or not they do or don't doesn't affect your nor my life in any way shape or form. So why should we care?

:smile:

kalnel 06-01-2008 03:23 PM

Whether Mary and Marie like each other or not, someone will find a way to gossip about their relationship.

Remember Fergie and Diana? When they were close, they were "misbehaving" at Ascot or on the ski slopes and plotting to overthrow the Windsors. When they were at odds, all the stories were about jealousies, slights, and warring "courts."

I've been surprised that there hasn't been more said about the fact that both Marie and Henrik are French-born. He could be a great mentor to her, since he understands where she's coming from, so to speak.

Wonderful, truthful answer-I agree 100%

What came out in the Engagement interview was that Marie will do all she can not to become part in any discussion about a comparison of the three princesses. She had had her experience with the media before that interview and thus she said that there is no need to compare the younger female members of the Rf or Alexandra, as each makes her own contribution. She obviously was non-commital about Mary and said only some nice things about Alexandra's and her relationship as stepmother/mother of the boys. In the documentary she stated again that there is no need to comment on comparisons as there is no reason to do such comparisons.

So I guess we won't ever hear a word from her or Mary or Alexandra about the other two. :flowers: Which IMHO is a good thing for them.

Thank you! :rolleyes:, it makes much more sense then saying that there is nothing wrong with future sisters in law not having anything good to say about each other.

Villemann 07-17-2008 08:19 AM

The relationsship between Mary and Alexandra was never varm - never! How do I know? Because I have talked to people close to them for my book "1015 Copenhagen K." Marie will always live in the shadow of Mary, but she has one advantage over her: She speaks French and therefore she has the attention of the Pater Familias of the DRF, Prince Henrik.
