I don't know where to ask this question, but it's been bugging me for a while...
Where are Marie and Joachim, especially Marie? Have they been hidden away? Are they choosing to stay in the background, maybe work less? It's just so quiet
I was thinking the same thing, Purple.
There are a couple of events for Joachim here and there, and Marie - nothing. And then you have the Derf propaganda all over the place.
Wonder if there's a strategy to keep them even more in the background to justify not paying them less apanage, since they don't "work" enough for the Royal Family.
My plot is that twins were not only conceived to secure Mary's position, but also create a distance from the CP family to the throne, money, work, etc. If it would be only Xtian and Izzy, they might have somehow included Nikolai & Felix. But with X, I V&J and the 4 Schack's there is not much to go around to justify payment, and as we read in the news, now it's only Xtian who will get apanage.
So to have a reason to drag the Schack's through the mud, one has to build up and keep the Derf's at the top. Continuously. And to get a "feeling" for what people think, FB and Instagram was incorporated into the mix.
