Well, I haven't seen any pictures of a peeing Crown Prince, but than I have a principle of not buying 'Se og Hør' ;)

Maybe some pictures where taken of the Crown Prince without him knowing, but didn't he find out???

:innocent: :lol: :P

Geez. They should have left them alone.

I just found ... courtesy of Chatleen .. a link to priceless pictures of Fred & Mary in Greenland.

For instance, there's this one:
"I'm wearing the same color pants as the Crown Princess"

And this one:
"A Crown Princess is way more fun than a Crown Prince"

And finally this one:
"Mary sure looks like she is enjoying herself"

... then there's these:
"What lovely beadwork"


"Don't tell Mary about this ... but the thing I really hate about being married, is ....."

Chauffeur for a day, yuck

A posy for my queen.

Found this link on the GRMB:



Crown Princess Mary and her beautiful new sister-in-law, Princess Alexandra, have been unwittingly thrust into a bizarre popularity contest by their Danish subjects. And alarmingly for palace spin-doctors, some Danes are openly questioning the level of friendship between the two princesses.

Hong Kong-born Princess Alexandra, 40, was Denmark's darling for almost a decade, ever since she became the wife of Crown Prince Frederik's younger brother, Prince Joachim, in 1995. According to a Danish royal commentator: "Until now, she's enjoyed the status of being Denmark's favourite royal - apart from, perhaps, the Queen. But now it is Mary who is getting the attention, the cheers, the compliments. What a rival!"

It is really, really crap. The danish royal house does not have any spindoctors. In fact, the first person employed only to deal with the media started just a couple of months before the wedding.

And than I wonder, why the "Danish royal commentator" doesn't have a name... Hey, I'm danish, and I make comments on the Danish royal family :P

We've all been Danish Royal Commentators at some point!

Dennism 07-27-2004 12:52 AM

Maybe they talked to a Royal commentator who is an American but who follows the Danes like, I don´t know, me. Doh. Revealed my identity. :P

Are they still in greenland?

Yennie 07-28-2004 05:04 AM

Fredrik and Mary is on a "city tour". They are sailing along the danish coast and visit some various cities. Today they will visit Odense

The article is clearly not based on anything substantial. As pointed out before, it is an article which relies solely on internet postings.

Which is my whole point for posting the article here in the first place ... that the Mary attacks on the internet reflects badly on Alex's fans and (in the Women's Day's journalist's mind), those comments reflect badly on Alex herself. You know what I mean? The "outrage" shown by some pro-Alexandra posters that Mary is doing this/ not doing this and the constant putting down of Mary opens the possibility for the journalist to say "Alexandra is a jealous rival", because those posters make it sound like Alex and Mary are rivals!!

Posts like "Mary is trying too hard, Alex is "real" and warm"... blah blah blah... everyone who has read the article can attest that these are the types of posts that were quoted ad infinitum in the article! And hence allow the journalist to make the argument that Alexandra is a jealous rival.

They're not! I blame this negative piece on the journalist AND also on those posters for putting the idea in the journalist's head in the first place!!!

Maybe I'm being slow here, but just to make sure:

Does the article mention, that it is based on internet-comments?

Humble 08-12-2004 10:55 PM

Thanks Samiture for the link. The video is nice and She looks pretty. The couple looks cute...Still, I am not into the public kissing even if the people asked them to do so...they are exposing their private life easily to the media. they should not regret it later as the people as the media will ask more and more (IMO)

samitude 08-12-2004 10:59 PM

You're welcome.

I wouldn't think it appropriate if they had a long overdone french kiss or something in public, but this was only a quick peck on the mouth. I was surprised at the way everyone on other boards went on and on about it as being not appropriate. In this case I think it was fine. It didn't bother me a bit.

Ennyllorac 08-12-2004 11:14 PM

I think it is sweet. It's not like they are slobbering all over each other. It's nice to be able to show affection.

Just found this article and not sure if it has been posted before... but go Fred & Mary!!! :) :) :
