Wow! Sources in Switzerland, France and Denmark are all talking about how Princess Marie is about to become Crown Princess after struggling Mary Donaldson steps down!
Anyone else hearing this?
They say Mary is struggling to look after her children - remember, she does not use nannies - and keep up with her patronages.
It's said the palace has been preparing Marie for months now and she is ready to accept the new responsibility. Others say Fred is also happy to make way for his more qualified brother. Between them, the new Crown Prince Couple speak half a dozen languages fluently. Incredible!
Eyewitnesses have seen the Queen leading Marie around the Crown Prince Couple's apartments and discussing, in French and Danish, how it will be restored and certain artworks will be shipped to a certain country far away.
Apparently palace staff have been referring to Marie as the Crown Princess in private for the past week ahead of her coronation as Crown Princess!
