The fact that, in 2017, Crown Princess Mary still gets paid via her husbands apanage (just like the former Prince Consort received his payments through the Queen's apanage) is something that angers many Danes who think the Crown Princess ought to receive her own, independent, payment for her work!
Princess Benedikte also gets paid via her elder sisters' apanage which is a compensation for her activities in Denmark (and those are many!).
As in many other surrounding monarchies these apanages are a hot item in various forums!
