Communications chef Lis M. Fredriksen anounced that crown princess Mary would be working with a new lady-in-waiting starting from May 2006.
Countess Victoria Bernstorff-Gyldensteen, who had been accompanying Mary for 2 years, would be replaced by Mary's close friend Caroline Heering.

Caroline would stay in this function for nearly 2 years. From 2007 to 2010 she would combine it with a new function as Mary's private secretary.
Caroline later changed her name to Caroline Flamand. After her marriage it became Caroline Heering.
Helle Moltke acted as a "kammerdame" to queen Margrethe, so Caroline has always been acquainted with Danish court.

Caroline grew up at Lystrup manor, where she would later also host Mary's hen night.
