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.

To me, she looks quite happy.


That’s good! Glad she has a fan amongst the dishing!

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



I’m sure she’d be grateful for whatever she can get in this thread. 😹

I should start rooting for her, I always seem to like the underdog when it comes to royal women!  Laugh bounce

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.

Except for Denmark, I doubt press of other countries including Australia are interested at them. Mary used to hiring PR agents in Australia to do self promotion, I doubt she would do it for her kids who don't need it since they are royal born and Xian seems to be a low-key type of person.

Other than Christian kicking some wildlife, having his mother cover his mouth with her hand at an airport, and having to duck unnoticed while a parent carried him under branches that were swiping him, and Isabella’s holey shoes - I haven’t seen them in the Australian press.

Christian seems a friendly, normal kid. But that's it. Nothing really newsworthy about him (which is good, he is entitled to some normal years).

Isabella made the headlines when she behaved really badly in public towards her mom, that happened at an age where you could expect more tact and also more tactical thinking. This was followed by a kind of "homestory" where she and her friends were pictured shopping or something, it was screaming "this is bad PR, she is just a normal misbehaving teenager, nothing to see here".

Vincent seems a nice kid. Josephine seems to be an Eloise/ Alexia/ Leah/ Camille in the making. Soon she will have a "look at me" Instagram acocunt and feel you more information than you ever wanted.

Mary and Frodo are not doing anything spectacular. Frodo is the most invisible crown prince in whole Europe (and Hakoon is not a workhorse, either). When he shows up and it is not sport, he usually wears a suit that is too small and he has the general appearance of someone who overslept in his clothes ... So it might protect him that there is not more coverage.

Mary is doing better, but always has this fake vibe around her and she always seems like a stressed headmistress playing her rehearsed role. Also not something you want to see every day.

A decade ago the media would have been following her around during this trip now, she and Amber just aren't that interesting. When Christian and Isabella start making trips on their own to Australia that is when we may see the media interest start.

something very suss about this trip of MEdiana's...

there is NO press coverage.

Why hasn't she called them up to tell them what she'll be doing and where?

I reckon Fred is looking happy for a reason and Mary is licking her wounds.

Well the two oldest are off to boarding school and the youngest are more and more independent and pre-teen like so Mary's days of using her children as props are ending. Her husband doesn't need her either. Maybe we'll eventually see her down at the pub like we did with Charlene not that long ago. You always kind of end up where you start. The pull of the familiar.
