Didn't we have this discussion on Marie's maternity leave before? I swear we did
As last year was about being pregnant and settling into her new position, wouldn't it be better to be judging her on what she does/doesnt do properly NOW in this upcoming year?
She's the second son's wife, she's not going to be allowed to outshine Mary. The family's learnt from Alex that's not going to work in allowing the second D-I-L to do more than the *icon*
despite the fact that if they did, perhaps maybe she'd buckle down and start working instead of doing the crap they've allowed her to do to disgrace what the Crown Princess should have been.
Marie said she was there to support her husband and that's what she's doing, he's eased her in gently and hopefully over time, she'll be allowed to do things of substance as she finds what she wants to be championing as a Princess?
