she leave Denmark though
Her children live here and will for a good while longer. She has fully adopted Denmark as her homeland too. Should she go back to Hong Kong, which I believe most of her family has left and why
Where is she allowed to go to not "live on her former glory"?
I have no issues questioning her annual pay or her laziness or the fact that she either ought to work more or give up the pay on her own, but I find the whole "she should leave the country, she's no longer relevant in Denmark" discourse quite unfair. Not to mention somewhat nationalistic and a bit sexist on top of it. She was only welcome as long as she was married into the royal family or what? It doesn't matter that her children are Danish - once she left the RF, it's out?
There's quite a big difference between finding it unfair and/or greedy of her to get the annual pay and to shame her out of the country
ETA: I'm not entirely sure Alex cares that
much about what people think of her. She gave up the princess titel herself and she's got a job after all, and that's not in Denmark. Personally I think her motivation is mostly financial
I doubt we'd see Mary work in some non-attention giving job in Schwitzerland post-divorce for instance
