Solving an image problem

17 August 2007

Even though she'd been hugely popular ever since she was discovered by the Danish press, crown princess Mary also had the image of being mainly interested in horses, luxury and designer clothes. On top of that the thorough renovation of Frederik and Mary's palace at Amalienborg had a very high cost.

A crown princess needs a different image so court contacted a few tabloids and let them know they'd be able to make interesting photos at a certain moment, on a certain spot.

They saw Mary coming out of a private enterance of Kancellihuset carrying a barely filled garbage bag. Danish and international magazines all published this image with about the same comments: "the other side of a princess's life" ... "Mary's not too grand to take the trash out" etc.

Gråsten Slot

Each summer the Danish royals gather at Graasten castle, in the small town Gråsten (about 4.000 inhabitants) in Jylland (the south of Denmark), where they spend at least a few days with queen Margrethe and prince Henrik.



The palace was buit around 1600, replacing an earlier hunting lodge. For centuries it was owned by various noble families untill the Danish state purchased and restaured it in 1935. They offered it to be used by king Frederik IX and his wife, queen Ingrid who loved it and used it as a summer residence. This tradition has been maintained by their daughter, the current queen Margrethe II.








The chapel of Graasten castle is the only part of the estate that's open to the public.
