Hi everyone!
I'm brand new to this website although I've been viewing it without being a member for a while.
I just wanted to say that Mary is my absolute FAVORITE and I think she couldn't be more elegant and sophisticated. Imagine being thrust into the spotlight as she's been with millions of people just like us critiquing every move she makes. All of us have those days where we wake up miserable and want to crawl back under the covers but she doesn't have that luxury anymore. No one is going to like everything she wears or does or says but I think she's doing a pretty good job thus far.

Why do they sit in the gallery, does the queen not give a "speech from the throne"?

No Queen Margrethe do not give a speeche from the throne becaus she and the rest of the royal family may not express ther political opinion. Therefore the queen and the royal family canīt place ther vote when ther is a election to the Danish Parliament.

Thanks for that. In countries where the monarch does give a speech from throne it is the government who writes the speech so it is not their own opinion that they are giving.

I donīt think that itīs tru because she has given birth to both Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix and they are 3. and 4. in line to the crown,so in that way she will still be in the family. She migth not be married to Prince Joachim BUT her blood is running in the veins of Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix.

Princejohnny25 10-04-2005 06:29 PM

Her blood may be running through her kids vains but that is commoner blood and does not affect her at all.

I think what Sara meant that Alexandra officially is not a member of royal family anymore then she will not continue to join "official " royal tradition in parliament opening ceremony, but yes of course she still remains part of the family because of her children then she might still invited for a less formal event of the family:) .

I don't understand why somebody still bring up a commoner blood issue to nowaday royal... in present DRF it self I think only the queen and her siblings has "pure" royal blood. Frederick and Joachim don't considered as having the same kind of what their mother has since prince Henrik doesn't come from a royal family background (just aristocracy family).
Frederick’s wife also has a commoner background and then the future Cp or Cps will have 3/4 commoner blood. I don't think that is a big issue anymore.




Btw, I belief that nothing can break any blood relationship, then Alexandra will still remain their family, the same thing will be happened if Mary' and Frederick have to face a divorcing situation, Mary will remain a family specialy because of her child.

There's no such thing as commoner blood, or royal blood for that matter. We are all the same, after all, royalty all started out as "commoners."

Its so sad that Mary was not there, so the outfits of Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte also not really special, i think Queen Margrethe is down to earth and such a great person but her outfit at the Opening of The Parliarment this year was really normal nothing such special, Princess Benedikte's outift was alright, i like the colour but not the hat.

I know that prince Henrik is 71 years old but to me he looks like he is about 79 or 80 in this pic.
I think he looks older than he is. I hope ther is nothing wrong with him :( :(
