Princess Alexandra, Queen Margrethe’s ex-daughter-in-law, has decided to marry her boyfriend on March3, thus leaving the royal family for good and be reduced to a lowly Countess of Frederiksborg. She’ll lose the last of her privileges, but not her annual alimony of appr. € 250.000.

However, she will have to pay about 73 % taxes. So she’ll probably need a job.

The media and all their royal specialists are having a fieldday.

Some are probably terribly disappointed that the wedding is to take place without them.

And all of this almost drowned the news that Danmarks Radio needs yet another one hundred million Euro to pay for their new digs…
