My only issue is that I am paying for her expenses while I have to see her praised in the Danish public for being an icon of sustainability..

To raise the issue further, whether is Mary or another royal consort, the funding will come from allocation the government gives to the royal house.  That funding is up the royal house to spend as they see fit?

They’re the only publicly funded “branch” that aren’t subject to cutbacks. In a time with cutbacks, growing poverty and a growing focus on sustainability and less spending, I take the liberty of being annoyed with a person, essentially paid by Danish taxpayers, showing no restraints in shopping whilst she promotes herself as an icon of sustainability. YMMV. I think the DRF suck at public service.

You make very valid points. I am beginning to think that Monarchy is outdated.

I am also starting to think that, which makes me feel sad because there's such a huge history there. However, the idea of a monarchy in general just doesn't seem to fit with the modern, progressive world.

Well her husband gets 90% of the combined income and her MIL would get multiple times.... I’m not seeing him do much and his mother is doing less all the time

Mary's 10% is her pocket money which is a lot.  Freddle's 90% needs to cover the household and staffs expense, don't know how much is left in his pocket though.

Mary always ran her mouth, but rarely corresponded to reality since day one. Good that Danish press has never held her accountable for what she had said.  But recently I saw her spending less on clothes compared to previous years.

She looks like a ordinary woman out shopping.

And I'm sure she enjoys the freedom of being an ordinary woman shopping in her home country.

There will be plenty of issues to critise her for.  But enjoying a private trip in her home land with a close friend is not one.

Who’s criticising the trip?  Mind you, this will be costing the taxpayer.

Everyone misunderstood my comment.

I read it as 'not hiding but not looking for attention either'. Just normal.

Or no?

Other than the “sticky out bum bum” moment I’d agree. I think she looks much diminished without the event trappings and atmosphere and protection of the Danish Royals. Interestingly, other royals don’t look this ordinary in candids. i conject that something has happened for Mary to look so flat.

A decade ago this would have been a big deal, now she really doesn’t draw the attention.

I don't think she ever drew that much attention. A decade ago she was courting the press, announced the trip even before she went to Australia,  this time she probably just leaked the news of her visit right before she left  Wink.

When Christian and Isabella start dating, that is when the press interest will increase. Fred and Mary just don't sell like the used to. What can you say, it is a youth obsessed culture.

That's nice, but commenting that someone looks happy hardly makes me a fan, now does it? I am a neutral observer.
