What Advice Would You Give To Mary?
Now when she will be a Crown Princess and a future Queen
What should she think about?

theprincess 09-24-2003 03:42 PM

I think Mary should be thinking about representing her new country well and developing a bond with the Danish people. Also, she should be thinking about what charity work she will preforme as CP and eventually Queen.

I think she should (and will) listen and read, and in action smile.

Learn the Danish language better
But that she probably knows

I would also say that she need to find a friend in a other royal family that can be her support in her royal role...

Any new advice?

You don't need advice Mary. You have adapted to this life of royalty very well. It is obvious that Crown Prince Frederik and you are in love. From Smiley

Listen to your mother-in-law. She personifies royalty for many people. And don´t sweat the small stuff.

DKgirls 09-07-2004 04:25 PM

We think that for now it's enough if she just keeps on doing things as she does now! She has charmed most of the Danes and should just keep us amazed :p

And then she should talk with her mother-in-law, but maybe also try to talk to some of the other queens or crown princess who has tried the same thing as her(moving to another new country and get into the people and so!)!!!

stop modelling and start doing more usefull stuff like the other crownprincesses of Europe.

Don't listen to all the mean criticism going around. You are doing a terrific job and your hard work is visible to all who care to see it. Also, I second the suggestion above of finding a close friend in the royal circle. Mathilde of Belgium seems like she would be a great friend and confidante.

Do the best you can because at least when you lay your head down at night, you know you gave it your all. Also, don't worry about pleasing everybody...No matter what you do, there are going to be people who will talk. It's just human nature to do so.

I'd echo the finding someone in the same position as yourself, ie. a crown princess, to exchange ideas with. Crown Prince Haakon of Norway has said that he tends to do it with Crown Prince Frederik, because, while Norway and Denmark aren't exactly the same, it is nice to have someone to talk to who knows what you're going through.

Josefine 08-06-2005 11:44 AM

does anyone have some advice for her

Princess BellyFlop 08-06-2005 12:53 PM

She should let do of the modeling and the stiff unnatural smile. Posing, posing posing... she reminds me of Madonna's song and videotape «Vogue».

oskana 08-06-2005 01:26 PM

stop going to fashion shows, taking vacations, unatural smile, raising chin,and posing. Relax, do some real work, and learn the language better.

Princess BellyFlop 08-06-2005 01:50 PM

Am I the only one to find Mary «cold»? Not a warm and caring person.

I have learnt that some people who have a problem of shyness:o , give an impression of a cold shoulder to cover up their uncomfortability.

Stop looking for the cameras, it is so unnatural and most of all, unroyal. Stop doing fashion shoots and useless interviews. Maintain some dignity and mystery. Get in there and get your hands dirty and show that you want to and are trying to make a difference and contribution to Danish society. There is a difference between lending your name to a cause, showing up to receive a bouquet of flowers and cut a ribbon and then leaving, versus actually WORKING with/for a few causes.

You'll be amazed at how much stronger you'll become and have blossomed within the Royal Ways. Know that you endeavour to do your best and that you can do no more, thereby acknowledging your limitations. Beauty, Humility and Nobility, that which you already possess are innate and radiate from within, are timeless and shall aid you in remaining steadfast within the face of adversity, when necessary. As long as you remember that duty is more than a Noun, originates from God and that you answer only to him and that you continue to endeavour to do that which is Right, you shall not go wrong. :)
