No one from the outside world has joined a royal family and was at ease from the get go. She may slip up or behave strangely or wear the wrong dress/shoes/hat or whatever.
I remember seeing Queen Silvia on TV a few weeks after her wedding. She was not very comfortable and it showed. Look at her now. As if she was born to the job. Give Marie time she has a lot on her plate. She may surprise us all.

Are you're saying that they attended official events before their weddings? There's a huge difference, they were marrying crown princes and were following a different protocol than Marie who wasn't marrying a crown prince. They were no doubt being prepared for their crown princess role.

Marie has been taken off the programme for the tattoo on the 26th, but it has been replaced with a trip to a Danish-German conference on the 27th in Berlin for both Joachim and Marie.

It's not known why Marie didn't attend. (An article from BT speculates in pregnancy or a quick spring cold... :whistling:)

The article mentions that Joachim said that everything was ok, but it was irritating that Marie was prevented from participating.

The remark was also short from the court and said that Princess Marie was prevented from attending. :ermm:

GlitteringTiaras 06-23-2008 03:58 PM

Billed Bladet also reports on the no-show Marie.


Princess Marie did not attend her first official task. It should have been 32-year-old first official task; however, it was instead a disappointment for the participants and organisers of the Danish Drengekors concert, as Prince Joachim arrived without Marie.

But where is the princess Marie?
Prince Joachim briefly stated that "...everything is fine. It is of course unfortunate that Marie is not present."

Prince Joachim did not want to deepen nor discuss his wife's absence any further, and the court refused to comment on the controversial episode.

Strange

It can be any reason....sick, nervous, undergoing a 'royal' makeover:biggrin:

Odette 06-23-2008 04:38 PM

One would think all the wrinkles were ironed out way before the wedding.
I want to believe she had a sudden illness that detained her.( Morning-afternoon sickness??) Hopefully there is no trouble in paradise. It would be so sad.

sneeuwklokje 06-24-2008 07:18 AM

Maybe a wardrobe crisis??:biggrin::biggrin:

Duke of Marmalade 06-24-2008 10:54 AM

What is the problem with confirming why she's not around? It's childish to do a no-comment regarding Marie's absence, it only will enforce speculations. I don't know what it is but I have a strange feeling regarding these two, something just doesn't seem right with this combination :hmm:

GlitteringTiaras 06-24-2008 11:45 AM

We may never know to be honest. Someone should have said something or make up some excuse/fib; for example, she had a serious fever, Hayfever, or she ate something the night before thus she wasn't feeling too hot the next day.

To say nothing leaves the door wide open... which is not a good PR move (whomever is handling the couple certainly failed PR 101 whilst at University.:rolleyes:)

The nice thing is that we can just lean back and wait and see, while the Royals will have to come up with an explanation should it happen again...:biggrin:. on a more serious not, I personally hope that all is well for them. It must have been something serious, though, she wouldn't have wanted such reports.

BurberryBrit 06-24-2008 05:04 PM

Looks very bad.

marmi 06-24-2008 05:12 PM

I agree, it doesn't look good not showing up for an event like this, but it looks worse still without a reason...

Al_bina 06-24-2008 06:53 PM

I for one think that there has to be something serious, which prevented Princess Marie from attending the event in question.

GlitteringTiaras 06-25-2008 05:37 PM

Marie, along with Prince Joachim, made her first (well actually it's supposed to be the second) official engagement at the French Embassy. Highlights from the BT article state, that she is still having a hard time learning Danish. Prince Joachim interrupted the questioning by noting, "It goes, it goes" (or something like that); Marie has not yet said anything really except in English, the "see you on Saturday", at Møgeltønder City Hall shortly before the wedding. However, today's reception at the French embassy Marie had no fear when it comes to languages: Everyone spoke French around her including the Ambassador and other guests.

On Thursday, Prince Joachim will attend the salute and march at Rosenborg Slotsplads on the occasion of the Royal Livgardes 350 year anniversary. Marie, however, will "have a day off" said Prince Joachim. Nonetheless, on Friday she will be in Berlin for the opening of a Danish-German neighbourhood project. The reporter asked if Marie has taken on or has been asked to be a representative of any patronages? According to Prince Joachim's Secretary, Colonel Kurt Bache, "No" she still hasn't.

Click the link for several photos (it looks like she's wearing one of Mary's dresses. It looks very similar. Yes, she looks nice too.)

norwegianne 06-25-2008 06:24 PM

The article said that she answered the question of how it felt to be a Dane after the wedding and the honeymoon in "a very good Danish". (With the added embellishments from the journalist, of course :lol:)
