Although each monarchy has its distinctive characteristics and each royal family goes through its own internal conflicts -almost comparable to soap operas-, between the English Crown and the Danish crown There is an element in common that is striking: the antipathy of the Royal Family towards the wife of one of the heirs to the throne.
While in England discontent was channeled into Megan Marklethe wife of Prince Harry -and who finally renounced her obligations to the Crown-, in Denmark history seems to repeat itself with the wife of the prince fredericoSon of the Queen Margrethe II. But, unlike what happens with the British crown, Frederick has not resigned and is close to becoming the next King of Denmark, even if his mother and the Danish Royal Family do not like his wife. he, Mary Donaldson.
Who is Mary Donaldson, the next queen consort of Denmark and who suffered the same scorn as Meghan in England
The Queen Margrethe II, current monarch of Denmark, seems to repeat the story of Elizabeth and her family in England. And it is that the daughter-in-law of the sovereign generates the same reactions that she generated at the time Meghan Markle when she began her relationship and married Prince Harry, the youngest son of the current King Carlos III and Lady Di.
The British Royal Family never accepted Harry’s relationship and despised Harry at all times. Meghan Markle, to the point that Harry chose to renounce the obligations of the Crown in order to be happy with his wife and enjoy his family in peace. In this way, his older brother, William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, remained in the succession line of Carlos III.
As for the Danish Crown, the Queen Margrethe II he never accepted any of his son Prince Frederick’s girlfriends or partners. However, the contempt shown by the sovereign for Mary Donaldson It has been greater than that of any other bride. So much so that the queen tried everything to separate her son from who, today, is her current wife.
