BT has an article plus one photo (more images here) of the couple in Berlin. According to the journalist, in his/her over gushing article: With smile on her beautiful lips and the twinkle her eyes, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie visited the German capital on Friday. The official visit for the couple was to attend the conference '"Re: Connect - a Danish-German naboskabsprojekt." The aim of "Re: Connect" was to revive and boost the historically close cultural bindings between Denmark and eastern Germany. By means of cultural exchange the two regions were brought closer together, informs the Danish Embassy in Berlin.

The couple also visited the south of the border and saw the remains of the Berlin Wall and the German Parliament. It was the couple's first official visit after their beautiful romantic wedding in May.

Well, fashionwise she is back to her old self at that wedding. Blehhhhh:eek:

She is a normal person with a simple dress.
I think she wants to be treated like any other guests with her friends, not like a princess...

She is a Princess now; it's not like she can turn it on and off when she wants too. 24/7 for the rest of her life she must behave, dress appropriately, and represent Denmark even during private events. :smile:

Joachim is wearing a pinstripe suit - the wedding must have been very informal. Marie is approprietaly dressed. She looks cute, fresh and lovely - and more stylish than some royals we sometimes see at official events. Give her a break - Denmark do not need another Mary.

True... no one likes a copycat.

What Denmark needs (if at all) is a new princess eager and engaged in her new role with appropriate clothing worn at each event. Marie will fill that role, without a doubt.

Moving on: Pretty soon when we will see images, as well as articles, of Marie with the rest of the royal family I'm sure she won't disappoint. :flowers:

Wonderful pics, thanks for sharing!
In my opinion princess Marie is stylish and elegant a real princess :)

rominet09 06-29-2008 07:56 AM

Beautiful outfits for a beautiful girl !

Marie looks beautiful. If she's been feeling poorly, hopefully she will be better soon.

When will an "official" picture of her be put on the website (i.e. wearing her Order of the Elephant)? Don't get me wrong, I think that the picture there now is gorgeous.

Marie is so elegant and beautiful in that dress. It really suits her.

After another no-show (twice already) to the 350 Royal Guardsman Rosenborg Tattoo Parade with Joachim, Marie was well enough to attend a concert at Tivoli with the rest of the royal family. You can read the topic and see images HERE.

Well first it was very very bad for Joaquim to say that Marie was not felling well so she stayed at home in order to travle next day to attend a friend's wedding!!! Of course pleasure comes first that is very unpolite thing to say IMO!!! Second when I though she was starting to dress like a Princess with that blue dress she has dissapointed again with this awful Back and white suit! Also that dress from the wedding is not the best, but I think that is just her way of dressing and her taste in clothes!

princess leonor 06-30-2008 11:48 AM

But it is possible for someone to feel sick one day and to feel better the next! It doesn't mean she was avoiding her duties and wanted only pleasures! But, did Joaquim say that Marie prefered pleasure?

pamk 06-30-2008 12:40 PM

Scenario: "I don't feel like attending a concert in my own backyard, so I'll just throw this outfit on, hair's a mess - I'll just pin it up - don't even have time for make-up - oh well, no one will notice or care!"
"I don't feel well and can't attend my royal duties" Next Day: "I feel sooooo much better - let's go to the wedding!" (Plus there's family in Geneva to visit with!)
"I don't feel well enough to attend the military parade" BUT "I feel well enough to attend the next event" and on and on and on ......
This "sick" bit is going to start to wear really thin with the DRF --- Marie better get her act together really fast. I don't think that she had a clue as to what she was getting herself into by marrying PJ and becoming a part of the DRF.
If there are any "gray suits" (like at Buckingham Palace) who work for Queen Margarethe, they are going to come down hard on Marie - just like they did with Fergie. Marie needs to shape up and get with the program - fast!

Actually I like the outfits she has worn, very understated but classy.
After the honeymoon, how soon & how many engagements did Mary have?? I just can't remember. Marie has had a busy week (for such a new comer),I truly wish her luck.

samitude 06-30-2008 01:18 PM

Maybe Marie's pregnant already and that's why she's sick one day and not the next! :devil: :lol:

marlene 06-30-2008 01:43 PM

I'm going to agree with samitde. it would easily explain the eratic attendance at events.Now we just have to wait and see!!!!

I remember that Mary had a ton of pre-wedding events --- she wore heels, hats - the whole show - and she looked wonderful. She seemed to be under such a microscope BEFORE she married Fred and she seemed to hold up fine.

I guess that to me Joachim and Marie seem so oddly matched. He looks so much older than she is --- always sort of stiff and fuddy-duddy in his manner and dress. Marie looks so much younger than she is and not at all worldly and sophisticated in spite of her beauty. It is said that "opposites attract"
