Its always a source of wonder to me that Joachim and Marie aren't more popular in Denmark. I know the Crown Prince couple seem to suck most of the PR available, and I've always had a soft spot for Frederik and Mary (with her Aussie connections.) However, Joachim and Marie are always engaged and happy and interested on their engagements. Happily married too, nice family, I just don't understand it really. Maybe it's the old attachment to Alexandra remaining a very long time.

@Curryong-One of my parents' former neighbors was Danish and I asked her a similar question. Basically she said that Joachim comes off as a bit "grand" when compared to his brother even though most people acknowledge that Joachim is the smarter and more polished of the two brothers. Frederik is known to stumble over his speeches and replies during interviews. Also the tabloids were more forgiving of Frederik's exploits as a single man and tended to not report them. Mary is very popular despite what certain royalty sites imply. <_<
Alexandra enjoyed immense popularity when married to Joachim, but that has tapered off in recent years especially after her most recent divorce. There is discussion as to her appenage that she'd been receiving. People like Marie, but she doesn't receive the same amount of coverage. Naturally as the CP couple Frederik and Mary have a higher profile, so they're better known. (In a nutshell the neighbor confirmed what our TRF Danish poster Muhler has stated over the years.) :xmas4:

Thank you TLLK. Yes, Muhler is always informative and accurate. I have looked at opinion polls published online and wondered at the great disparity in popularity between the couples. It is unfair, but sometimes one brother gets away with murder and his sibling can't, and that seems to be the case with Fred and Joachim.
