Mary is more beautiful than ever. I must say that she has really grown to be the most spectacular Crown Princess of all Europe! Frederik made a fine choice..

I wonder if it is known what perfumes and make up products Mary likes? I found a site listing favourite perfumes etc. of royal ladies, but found no info about Mary - or Alexandra - there.

I think the scholarship winner, Danielle, reminds me a lot of Mary. They have similar physical appearance, both were born in Tasmania and studied Law at the University of Tasmania, and both have lovely smiles!

Funny thing, this is exactly what I was thinking! That they could be sisters or something!
