I think this thread is kinda cruel. It's very easy to find pictures where Máxima, Mathilde, even Victoria look older than their ages. I'm sure there's unflattering pictures of all of us around, or pictures where unfortunate lighting shows our make-up cracking, that we wouldn't want to see posted on the internet with the sole purposes of an internet community laughing at our wrinkles and frowning lines. At least Mary's not doing a Silvia or a Charlene.
Agreed, Diogenes. In addition, I would suggest to Paola that many posters, particularly at the some other forum
- take great delight in pointing out less than flattering pictures/faces/outfits of the women you mentioned. But they
FREAK OUT when anyone makes even the mildest criticism of the Danish version of Princess Pushy. Also, most posters here would take less delight in denigrating Mary if she, and her PR machine, didn't portray herself as the perfect princess, perfect mother, and perfect spouse with the most perfect style, intelligence, destiny, manners, etc. In fact, most of the people here do a better job than any Danish journalist at providing a balanced view of Mary rather than a one-sided, single dimensioned creature of fantasy.
