    Ingrid Alexandra's Baptism

    You're right, that is absolutely awful. That dress and wannabe-movie-star pose are appropriate for a starlet on the red carpet at a movie premiere or the Oscars... not a royal baptism!! Mette-Marit looks radiant, as always, and everyone else looked lovely.

    Opening of the Eighth Legislature: April 2004

    I really loved Letizia's dress. To me, the entire outfit (white suit, hair, shoes) made her look sweet and girlish.

    Crown Prince Naruhito and Family: News & Photos 1

    If Masako and Naruhito do (finally!) manage to bear a son, that will be wonderful news. However, what I really wish is that the law would be modified so that the firstborn can succeed, regardless of gender.

    Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix, Current Events 1: September 2005 - July 2009

    You know, I don't think I've ever seen Alexandra in such casual dress before. She looks great even in sneakers, jeans, and a baseball cap!! And doesn't Felix look adorable holding that big stuffed animal??

    If You Could Be A Fly On The Wall...

    That is just hilarious!! :lol: If I could be a fly on the wall of any palace, I'd sit in on Fred and Mary when they are alone together, judge for myself whether they are in love with each other(because everyone here always denies it), and fly back to LTR to tell everyone all about it!!

    State Visit From Finland To Belgium

    You do mean the dress in the images posted above your post, and not the lighter blue gown Mathilde wore in the images posted a bit after? To me, the latter is more "Tiffany box" blue than the first, but it doesn't make sense that you would talk about a dress before it's been shown!! In any...

    Which Royals Smoke?

    Interesting! Also, I read that CP Mette-Marit quit smoking a few years ago. I don't remember the specifics, but I think it might have had to do with her being sick.

    Pavlos And Marie Chantal: Current Events February 2004 - August 2004

    Don't know if this is really considered "news" or not, but I thought I'd pass this bit of info on - Pavlos and Marie-Chantal are looking to sell their Connecticut home. There's a link to their real estate agency, with pictures of the house. If you're interested in buying it - they're asking for...

    Haakon & Mette-Marit photographed by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair

    That's funny, I have that issue but I don't remember that picture. I agree the poses are really stiff and weird. Haakon's shoe is so prominent, I might have thought it was a footwear ad. Too bad, because MM is wearing a lovely dress! I don't mind the cleavage!

    State Visit from Portugal - February 2004

    Oh, how embarrassing! Well, I bet that Haakon will brush up on his geography next time he's asked to give a speech!!

    Princess Alexandra, Current Events 1: November 2002 - May 2005

    Wow, she looks so pretty there! I haven't seen that picture before. Does anyone else think that Alexandra's Asian features really stand out for someone who is only 1/4 Asian?

    Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson, Current Events 1: September 2002 - May 2004

    Oh, I hadn't thought of that! Could it indeed be that Mary intentionally wore a repeat ballgown in order to curry favor with the public? If so, she's more calculated than I'd thought! But that's okay to me. IMO, based on what I've read about her personality and the fact that she managed to...

    Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson, Current Events 1: September 2002 - May 2004

    A repeat of a ballgown within the same year? Somehow I would have thought that Mary, being in the spotlight as she is, would have had another made for her. But even though I didn't like the gown that much the first time around, I really like that she thought it was okay to wear it again. It...

    Daughter for Haakon and Mette-Marit January 21, 2004

    Congratulations to CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marit!!! What thrilling news. Haakon looks absolutely ecstatic. I hope we'll see some new photos soon!

    Changes: What should some of the royals do?

    I'll just recap the statements I agree with. CP Maxima really does need to stop smoking and start using sunscreen. She is lovely, but her skin is beginning to take on the tough, leathery appearance we call "smoker's skin." Queen Rania may have a genuine appreciation for fashion and the money...

    People Who Look Like Royals

    Good choice. I sometimes see a bit of Hugh Grant in CP Frederik. So that would be my suggestion for this topic.

    I Feel Sorry For Alexandra

    If that sort of thing does happen to Mary, I agree, it will be quite an unfortunate situation. But outside of this board, I don't actually think that it is the case that people already believe that Mary cannot possibly measure up to the high standards already set by Alexandra. The Danes seem...

    I Feel Sorry For Alexandra

    I completely disagree. It is not "unfortunate" that Joachim married before Frederik. Joachim happened to find the woman he wanted to marry before Frederik did. It is utter nonsense to insinuate that the second-born should remain single until his older brother finds a wife. Neither is...

    Thanks for all the wonderful pictures! Princess Aiko is so precious!

    Mary Donaldson, Current Events 1: September 2002 - May 2004

    I agree that judging Mary's personality based on a particular pose in a particular picture is very silly. But actually, I looked at that head-tilt picture and thought, "Wow, she looks so much like her future mother-in-law!" I guess I think Margrethe tilts her head a lot! At first glance...

    Prince Friso and Princess Mabel, Current Events 1 (August 2003 - September 2006)

    After Johan Friso and Mabel marry, will Mabel become a princess? Will Johan Friso still be prince?

    Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra, Current Events 1: September 2003 - Sept. 2004

    Joachim will be learning to speak Mandarin too? It wouldn't have any practical application for him, would it? And plus it will probably be easier for Alexandra to learn Mandarin than it would be for Joachim. But still, the thought of couples undertaking a new language together is very sweet!

    The Nobel Prize 2002 - 2012

    Where oh where did you all find that cute little face with a crown? I'll just have to stick with the asterisks to rate the gowns of the Swedish royal family... hmmmm... ***** for Victoria, Madeleine, and Silvia. They all looked beautiful. Victoria looked like Cinderella from the Disney...

    Princess Catharina-Amalia, News and Pictures 1 (December 2003 - January 2005)

    Alexandria is also a lovely name! And it's very suitable for this forum, because it sounds so royal! I think the problem with "Amalia" is that so many people seem to be used to "Amelia," so the former seems hard to say. But I'm sure the Dutch - the only people who really need to know how to...

    Princess Catharina-Amalia, News and Pictures 1 (December 2003 - January 2005)

    Don't know what the fuss is about. I think Catharina Amalia is a lovely name, although the repetition of the end A in Catharina and the first A in Amalia makes it rather hard to pronounce. Congratulations to the Dutch royal family!
