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"

Mary was being groomed before the wedding for her role as Crown Princess. As Marie was not going to be Crown Princess IMO she did not receive the same attention, hence why she is not as put together as Mary was in the beginning. My opinion, of course.

"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.

Given that Marie's appearance at the military tattoo was removed from the calendar over a week before the actual event… and replaced with the trip to Berlin the day after, I doubt that one was done because of immediate illness.

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!

How many events did she miss thus far?? I only know of one which was not handled very well by PJ but it is possible she was not feeling well that day. Isn't it?

She missed the one with the boys choir, when she wasn't feeling well.

Originally she was supposed to have been at the Rosenborg tattoo with PJ, but that was taken off the calendar before she missed the one with the boys' choir.

Looking at the change in calendar when I recorded it, the visit to the Rosenborg tattoo was mentioned on the calendar the 13th of June, but Marie's attendance at the tattoo was removed from the calendar sometime around the 19th (the day before the boys' choir event, while the boys' choir was still on) when the trip to Berlin, and the subsequent events at the Guard anniversary was put on. :flowers:

Odette 06-30-2008 04:21 PM

Is it possible she was detailed somewhere else and she could not return on time in Danemark?? She may have gone to Geneva to see a doctor for example and could not return for the boys' choir. Possible??

I was pleasantly surprised to see them out and about going to official events now. They both look great so far. Her fashion is good, imo. I will say though some pics I have seen of Joachim have not been all that flattering of him. But not everyone is photogenic all the time or even some of the time.

The scenarios and warnings to Marie to get her act together, made me laugh. :lol: Give her a break! She has barely been part of this RF for a month. If anything since it's so early in this marriage my assumption would be that she would be over anxious to do things and not want to miss engagements. Why would anyone want to disappoint so soon.

Sister Morphine 07-01-2008 03:08 AM

I agree it's bad form to be missing engagements that quickly after jumping in the pool, but before we hang the girl, let's find out what's going on first. Perhaps there's a simple explanation for all of it.

Empress 07-01-2008 11:12 AM

People do get ill once in a while, and perhaps they decided that giving her back to back events so quickly was too much which might explain why the one event was removed when something was planned for the following day?

What lovely pictures of this sweet family! They all look very happy together and seem to be having a really good time, that's wonderful. Thanks for the pictures Iceflower and Paty!!!

they look very happy... very nice pics!!! thanks....

Odette 07-09-2008 09:06 AM

Lovely photos. The two little boys will grow up to possibly be the most realistic, tolerant princes. Seems like both parents and step parents love them and raise them in an atmosphere of acceptance of their reality.

I wonder wether Mary & Frederick will join them in France

envoy2400 07-09-2008 10:30 AM

why do the Danish royals always do these cheesy photo shoots full of PDA? It seems so forced to me.

biboquinhas 07-09-2008 11:20 AM

This seams to be a wonderful place to relax!They look happy and relax, Marie look very nice I think she is a "jeans women", and she looks better casual than with a more formal suit!!!

What is cheesy about them? All Royals will be posing within the month at their summer vacation homes in similar photo shoots.
