Danish Riyal Family

"But the one who seems most despised on these GC type boards is Mary in Denmark."

Why? Let's start here.

Is this a thread to determine how the riyal is standing up against the dollar?

Mary is well liked in Denmark, so that's all that matters. Maybe the dislike on GC tupe boards is the usual and boring Aussie-bashing. ( Mary is an Aussie from Tasmania )

She dresses in themost recent designer clothes while her daughter wears shoes with holes in them.

She is all about the latest trend, and has been known to throw a fit when she doesn't get what she wants.

If you see pics of her with her kids the kids always have a look like they have no idea who she is. They're being raised by nannies.

There are many reasons she's called The Bogan Princess

It's been rumored that she (the bogan Princess) was a stripper at one time.

From another thread

It's long been rumored that Prince Frederik has a drug problem, (he's mostly a heavy (every day) pot smoker,but he's also well known for weekend long coccaine binges with quite a bit of pot,valium, xanax and sometimes heroin to bring him down) the Bogan Princess has been known to indulge with him on occasion, if the company he parties with it right, tho she is very big into diet pills

That is complete crap. There seems to be a strange classism at work in the hatred of Mary, but whatever else you say about her you can't say she's not a hands-on mother. I'm no royal watcher and I've still randomly seen hundreds of photos of her with her kids in different situations.

Frederik and his brother Joachim look nothing alike - do they have the same fathers? Frederik's face is also oddly shaped - like he is in a Picasso painting. Good thing he didn't marry Shannen Doherty. I've heard nothing but nasty stuff about Princess Mary. Joachim and his wife Marie seem happy though.

Margrethe has godawful teeth, and very eccentric fashion sense. Apparently she's known for years that her Prince consort hubby Henrik indulges in the mansex from time to time and it doesn't bother her at all.

So, it was implied in the Spanish royals thread that Mary is loathed and there's a ton of unsavoury gossip about her . Someone please spill?

by Anonymousreply 3201/22/2014

King Christian IX of Denmark has as many royal descendants. In addition to his Danish descendants, his son became King George of the Hellenes and his grandson became King Haakon of Norway. His daughter Alexandra married King Edward VII and his daughter Dagmar married Tsar Alexander III and became the Empress Maria Feodorovna. Prince Philip and Queen Sofia of Spain are also descendants.

by Anonymousreply 3301/22/2014

Let us re-visit reply 23, whom i would love to chat to in person. A very enlightened observation '23'. You are very correct in that Fred and Joachim do NOT have the same mother or father. Biometrically it is very clear and people have been questioning this for a while. Fred and Mary knew before the marriage that he is not of royal blood. The elder child of Margrethe is female. Fred went to Australia to rescue and marry whom he referred to as "Crown Princess Lucinda". Mary knew and intercepted a family reunion in 2000, as she wanted money for her Sydney business power-hungry mates. Fred and Ingrid had meant to correct a huge baby-swap mistake made in 1968. Lucinda, a blonde child with blue eyes, was placed with the family of a gardener at Sandringham, then hidden in Australia. Fred has Roger's hair and Brenda's eyes. Brenda is 4'8". Apparently Fred had growth hormone as a child. Lucinda was starved and beaten. The sting deprived innocent Roger Bartram of his only son. Fred wrote to Lucinda for 13 years (till Dec 2013) yet his 'contract' wife and Co. prevented the truth emerging. Therefore we must push for DNA testing of every member of the Danish Royal family, before Fred is considered for King. And single Lucinda needs to be provided immediate police protection to survive the ongoing oppression. She currently lives like a refugee in Australia, seeking safety. Yet before the fifteen years of skirmishes she was a woman in international leadership and ethics. Lucinda needs a (Prince) husband and a child of her own royal DNA, and the respect of Denmark and the world. 47years is a long time to be punished, just for being born a female. To never meet her own family is severe punishment, assisted by Mary. Lucinda is an artist too, just like Margrethe, and has the right hand 'simian line' birth mark. Fred looks exactly like his father Roger and mother Brenda. Lucinda looks just like Joachim, Margrethe and Henrik, and Mary knows it. The orientation of Henrik comments by poster 23 is interesting. Perhaps Roger is the father of all the children, if Henrik is sterile from his WW2 years ans experiences involving Vietnam. the communists pushed the French out and the Can Lao sabotaged the Australian soldiers, yet there are some of these same clandestine individuals operative in the 'bogan' political team - as in the 1967 'six day war'. In 2005 Lucinda was told her being a hidden baby was a 50 year 'cold war' political deception against Margrethe, to erase the royal bloodline, substitute it with the insurgents, and 'peacefully' take-over Denmark. There has been MANY attempts over the generations.

by Anonymousreply 3405/30/2015

Well, that is very interesting '24'. We need to rescue Lucinda then. Poster *13 talks of Fred and Mary having drug problems. Who supplies them? Is there a trade happening there, obviously? There is text about Fred going grey and indecent urinating behaviour. Poster *11 talks of Mary disconnected from the children and holes in their shoes. The nannies are a known thing. the rest is just publicity and marketing false perceptions. Trine Villeman wrote in her books that there was a divided house. There were those early years of Mary being medicated for depression, then Fred. Is Mary any more than e clothes hanger for the fashion industry? Posters *17 and *19 speak about Hamlet, a Shakespeare play about a Danish queen and her murder. Reply *12 reports Mary once being a stripper ... well the woman had many boyfriends. And all those Kermandie and CYCA yacht 'Johnnies'. She was reported as being close to Sean Langman. Maybe the kids are not even from Fred. She also had a company called "King Cash". Her want for money was clearly known in the past. So why exactly did Fred have to get permission from Margrethe and parliament for the marriage? His heart, or is the matter not of the heart?

Mary is a bogan slag and while she may be somewhat popular in her adopted country, she is not particularly liked by some members of the Danish Royal Family and is barely tolerated by other European Royals.

by Anonymousreply 3605/30/2015

There's another forum, it's called the Royal Dish, and the posts are positively scathing re Frederick and Mary. According to the posters there, he's a drunk and she's, well it's hard to sum up all her faults. I met a Danish student a few months ago and was surprised to hear her say how well-liked Mary was because I'd only read horrible things about her. The other one , Marie, is popular though.

by Anonymousreply 3705/30/2015

Millions are spent making Mary look decent. Would be better to spend the money on DNA testing to prove lineage questions and make Mary give all that money back to the Danish people.

[quote]I met a Danish student a few months ago and was surprised to hear her say how well-liked Mary was because I'd only read horrible things about her.

She is well liked. I take it people who call her "the Bogan Princess" are Australian since no Dane would know what that is.

The most well liked Princess was Joachim's ex-wife from Hong Kong, Alexandra, because she speaks perfect Danish and learned to do so extremely quickly. Mary doesn't speak it perfectly but makes up for it by being so involved in anti-bullying projects, in my opinion.

The only import who might be slightly unliked is Henrik/Henri because he's never really learned to speak Danish, whines all the time that no one calls him "King", and because he's, you know, French. He recently ditched Margrethe's birthday celebrations, saying he was sick but showing up in Venice the next day.

Do they like marge and her art just because she is the queen> Oh yeh those teeth do need a clean from all those cigarettes. Met a male waiter last week who had a personal story 'bout topic #poster 23# 'mansex' parties in Denmark and these Riyal men listed here. Got a comment to #poster 14# : photographers do 100's photos in 1 single staged photo shoot. Its a paid job 4 marry Rigal 2 look the part. And for #poster 28#, marry Rigal might be a right simple one, but 'The Simpsons' are a TV show that made Rupert Murdoch a lot of money. Lastly, for #poster 9#, there was a program 'The DEVIL wear Prada'. Locally everyone know its all about poser contrary messer mary Rigal.

R34 - what the hell are you going on about in your post?

(1) Since King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid had only three daughters, a referendum was held in 1950's and the succession rules were changed to allow women to reign. As a result, Margrethe is the only European monarch who can actually claim that the people voted for her. Therefore, being "born FEMALE" hasn't mattered since the fifties.

(2) Henrik was born in 1934 so how the hell would he be "sterile" from the World War II years? He DID spend his early years in Vietnam and He WAS in the French Army during the Algerian War. Get your bloody facts straight instead of spreading misinformation.

(3) Regarding the looks of Frederik and Joachim, there's a perfectly logical explanation. Frederik is dark and short like his French father Henrik. Joachim is fair and tall like his Danish/Swedish mother Margrethe (she's about 6 feet).

by Anonymousreply 4205/31/2015

Frederik and Mary are the Charles and Diana of Scandinavia. They've managed to put on a united front in public, in private they lead largely separate lives.

Truth be told, Frederik was never really in love with Mary she was a rebound following his breakup with Danish model Katja Storkholm. You see Frederik was head over heals in love with Katja and she was a huge support in helping him deal with his role as future king, a role hes never really been comfortable with. Frederik wanted to marry Katja but his mother, Queen Margrethe put a stop to it. The Danish Royal Court has a very odd and snobby rule that members of the family must marry foreigners rather than Danish citizens.

Frederik had a terrible childhood and his parents make Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip look like Mr. & Mrs. Cleaver. Queen Margrethe largely ignored her children and would often go weeks without seeing them. Frederik's father Prince Henrik (a French Count) was physically abusive towards him...there's been hush hush rumors in Denmark about Henrik's enjoyment of little boys. As a result of his fucked up childhood, Frederik has always strived for his mother's approval and basically does what he's told.

Mary was meant to just be a fling but she must be good in bed because Fred kept in contact with her. When his mother learned of Mary, she encouraged the match and it wasn't long before marriage ensued.

By all accounts, the marriage was unhappy from the start and Mary was not really the supportive wife Fred needed. It wasn't long before Fred got the wandering eyes and was out having affairs. He has maintained contact with Katja and there's rumors that her son is actually Frederik's and not her ex-husband's.

As his mother's health has begun to wane, Frederik is seen out clubbing almost constantly now. He drinks too much and there's even talk of substance abuse. Mary is unhappy but will not leave as she enjoys the trappings of being royal. It's also rumored Mary had an affair with a member of the danish government a short time back named Friis Bach.

The Danish Press know all this information but fail to report on it for fear of back fire from the royal family and from the danish people who are very fond of their royal family.

You mean "Snake Girl"? That gap-toothed whore must have something dirty on the King otherwise she'd never have been allowed to become engaged to Carl-Philip. Queen Silvia detests her and Victoria does not like her either. You can see the struggle in public when they try to provide a one big happy family impression.

by Anonymousreply 4605/31/2015

Gotta agree with the poster who said that the kids look and act like they don't know who Mary is. There was a great blog about her years ago called A Bogan in Denmark. Wish he/she had kept it going.

by Anonymousreply 4705/31/2015

[R46]You are right about Victoria, she has a passion hatred for her future sister-in-law. Reporters have been asking Victoria for months how she feels about the upcoming wedding and her response has been 'I'll save my opinions for the wedding.' The snake girl must know some serious information about the Swedish royal otherwise I cannot see how they would have allowed this marriage.

by Anonymousreply 4805/31/2015

Gotta disagree with the report given paragraphs above by reply 42. Henrik could have been sterile from service exposure and the Algerian War. Gotta agree with Fred wanting Kaitja Storkholm not Mary. Can you mention where we can look at some photos to compare these faces? I have herd all the information from poster 43 before, about Fred being unprotected. So if he is not the true son of Henrik it all may be true. The tabloid have shown lots of these stories about the misfit of Fred and Mary *and their addictions: one for forgetting his life, and the other for wanting the royal money and prestige. The deal with Mary was never love. It was an employee trade link and an ORDER that trapped Fred. he was unhappy from the start. He wanted to marry another pseudo Australian, Margrethe's daughter, his baby-swap. That's why he looks away from Mary and is stuck in such sorrows. He was trapped into it from when he was a little baby. He is living a lie.

by Anonymousreply 4906/02/2015

r6 only by the glossy brainless mags and the fraus. Mary is considered a bit of a joke by the younger generation with her sometimes over the top "I am Royal" ways. Her hubby Frederik is a bit intellectually slow, but he's nice enough. Their kids a but ugly.

by Anonymousreply 5007/04/2015

r43 is mostly right. However, Frederik no longer do drugs or drink heavily. Mary is arrogant and cold and doesn't give Frederik the emotional support he needs. She has become more royal than the royals, and not in a good way. Frederik married Mary because she fit the mold (according to the Queen) + he was desperate to have children. Mary wanted to be famous from an early age and at one point even trained to become a voice actor?! They both love their children. Katja would definitely have been a better match for Frederik emotionally than Mary. Katja was very protective and supportive of Frederik when they were dating. The rumors that Vitus (Katja's son) could be Frederiks is an open secret in Cph. She's definitely very protective of Vitus and refuse to talk about him and hides him from the public eye, which is very unusual in DK. Mary and Frederik will never divorce as Frederik is against divorcing and Mary enjoys all the trappings of being Royal. Behind the scene they live very separate lives. Frederik has focused on sports and exercise (he's huge on extreme cycling) to cope with his life, while Mary enjoys spending time with her children and all things being royal.

[quote] The Danish Royal Court has a very odd and snobby rule that members of the family must marry foreigners rather than Danish citizens.

It has nothing to do with snobbery. With a Danish bride also comes Danish in-laws. The Court does not want Danish in-laws attempting to capitalize on their relationship with the heir and eventual monarch. Foreign in-laws living in foreign countries do not pose the same awkwardness to Denmark and the Danish Royal Family. Although in the beginning, Mary's father tried his best to benefit socially and financially from his daughter's marriage. Margrethe put the brakes on that.

by Anonymousreply 5907/04/2015

The " no Dane" spouse did not prevent Mary's Australian-Scottish father to try benefitting from his daughter's marriage for years. He and his second wife litterally gatecrashed an event during Princes of Wales 's visit to Denmark as recently as 2012.
