What is the Danish public's opinion on Crown Princess Mary?
We love her! Both Mary and Frederik are very down to Earth!
I had a friend who was a Garder, those who stands guard outside each palace, and he told me that Mary and Frederik always greeted them by name every time they passed, and that they’d give them a birthday present every year. And on New Years (the time they spend it at Amalienborg) they’d come down and wish them a happy new year.
Those are stories Danes enjoy to hear. We want to have a future king and queen who doesn’t mind you accidentally say “du” instead of the formal “De” to them - unlike Joachim who’ll refuse to answer reporters questions if they address him wrong.
