2. Entering alone.
3. Joachim entering alone.
I found the entrance of the Royals into the church interesting:
a. Alexandra came in first, then came Joachim.
b. After him came Frederik and Mary, with Fred in front.
c. At last came Margrethe and Henrik, side by side.

Yes, it was interesting. I can see why Alexandra and Joachim entered seperately but it must be an issue of protocol where Fred walks ahead of Mary and Margrethe and Henrik walk side-by-side?

I would suspect, that Prince Henrik's pride is the reason behind Margrethe and Henrik walking side by side ;)

Thanks Chatleen.

... it could be inferred then, that his "pout" of a few years had some success?

Prins Joachims & Prinsesse Alexandras Fond støtter indsamlingen til Asien

Prins Joachims og Prinsesse Alexandras Fond har ydet 100.000 kr. til ofrene for flodbølgekatastrofen i Asien. Bidraget gives til UNICEF Danmark, hvis protektor er Hendes Kongelige Højhed Prinsesse Alexandra.

Fonden yder støtte til humanitære, kulturelle og uddannelsesmæssige formål i eller udenfor Danmark.

Fondens kapital består af midler, som er fremkommet dels ved det overskud, der indkom ved salg af bryllupsmønt, fremstillet i anledning af brylluppet 18. november 1995, dels ved fusionen i 2004 med Prins Joachims og Prinsesse Alexandras Internationale Uddannelsesfond, der blev oprettet i anledning af brylluppet 18. november 1995 med midler skænket af fondene i Bikuben-koncernen og af Foreningen til Unge Handelsmænds Uddannelse m.fl..

Prince Joachim's & Princess Alexandra's Foundation supports the collection for Asia.

Prince Joachim's & Princess Alexandra's Foundation has donated 100.000 kroner to the victims of the tidal wave catastrophe in Asia. The contribution is donated to UNICEF Denmark, of which Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra is patron.

The foundation supports humanitarian, cultural and educational purposes within or outside Denmark.

The foundation's capital consists partly of the surplus from sales of the commemorative coin on the occasion of the wedding 18 November 1995, partly from a merger in 2004 with Prince Joachim's and Princess Alexandra's International Education Foundation, which were established on the occasion of the wedding 18 November 1995 with money donated by Bikuben and The Sociaty for Education of Young Businessmen among others.

13 JANUARY 2005

Denmark's Princess Alexandra lived up to her reputation for elegance when she stepped out in the northern city of Frederiksberg. The Hong Kong-born royal, who was making an appearance in her role as president of her country's branch of Unicef, was looking radiant in a black velvet jacket and a retro-style skirt of oversize black and white sequins.

The princess, who has been doing all she can to raise funds for victims of the tsunami tragedy in Asia, was in town to collect a donation from the citizens of Frederiksberg. Alexandra is well-known for her commitment to good causes, serving as a patron for 21 different organisations in her adopted homeland.

Despite the recent upheavals in her personal life, the royal has continued to immerse herself in charity work. In September she and her husband Prince Joachim announced that they were to divorce, but just a few weeks later the princess travelled to Asia in person to publicise efforts to help impoverished girls in the region.

And upon her return to Copenhagen the pretty royal hosted a gala ball to raise money for the agency’s work. Thanks in part to her participation, Denmark is one of the top five per capita donors to Unicef.

1. With Joachim prior to entering the church.

2. Entering alone.

3. Joachim entering alone.

4. Being greeted by Frederik.
I like what alexandra is wearing very much, the colour combination, the jacket open untill the waist, belt, hat, stockings, shoes. Great.

the body language in the first picture is a bit sad but it probably is because they were reflecting on the victims and not for personal reasons.

Does anyone know if this is going ahead? ekstrabladet is so unreliable, and I can't find any mention of it on the Royal House's official website.

I've looked around in Danish newspapers online and on UNICEF's website (both the international and Danish one) - but I can't find anything! Not a word - nada, zip, zero - nothing! :mad: And no mention in the Royal Court's calendar either, this is really strange... Either this is a more toned-down visit, or then no one cares (which I would't have thought and still don't).

Queen Margrethe appoints the Ladies-in-Waitings - I presume and hope, after some consultation and approval by the royal who will have them in their staff (I think they'd want a good match - not a strange, stiff relationship). Ladies-in-Waiting often comes from the circles around the Royal Family who knows their way around these kind of circles. It can be a noble person and/or someone who has the adequate work experience for this kind of work - but I think the most important thing is that the person fits in, and feels comfortable with the position and what it entails.

yes....her first language is English...her father is British...so i guess that's why she has a British accent
 
I would really say that Princess Alexandra is a very hardworking and sincere person. It is really evident in the way she handles her tasks that she has high dreams and hopes for the charities and organizations she represents in Denmark and may it be even for others.

Though I don't really know if is this true because I don't come from Denmark but my friend stated through mail that what is really great about the princess is that she just doesn't accept those patronages and etc. she has now just for nothing but she really works hard for it. She even stated that when Princess Alexandra granted an interview and was asked about the charities and organizations she represents. She replied that she just doesn't like to only represent and be a patron of a certain charity or group but she always insists to be involved even in tiny details on every act they would do.
And for me, that is really a very good thing.

Keep us Princess Alex!

She looked gorgeous, I believe she even ousted Mary in the appearance department.

I thought she looked beautiful - but a tad Dynasty and very 80's with the big fur jacket on. I preferred Mary's more streamlined look.
 
Does anyone know what type of fur it is? I think the Princess looks glorious! Just how a member of a royal family should look!
Well done Princess Mary.
