I think this interview gives a much more nuanced picture of Henrik's parenting and personality as a father than what's been put out there in the past. My impression is that Henrik has had a reputation as a very harsh, unbending father who was almost Draconian in bringing up his sons. Here,though, Frederik and Joachim describe a strict, but loving man who knew how to have fun in the moment but also took his long term responsibilities toward his children seriously.

Thank you for a job well done Muhler. It made for interesting and entertaining reading. I always thought Queen Margrethe was the stricter parent.

Excellent work, Muhler. It takes time to translate all that. Hatten af!

A nice, relaxed and quite frankly interview from the two brothers.

(..)
And then articles and pictures from the concert from Royalista:

This part is about how Frederik and Joachim were raised in relation to being a Crown Prince and a Prince and the infamous silver wedding speech:

This is about his daughters-in-law and the problems about being accepted by the tribe:

How nice to see that Jacob Jørgensen, father of Martin Jørgensen, still is making documentaries about the royal family. While I usually dislike TV2's royal programmes and prefer DR's, I do have a fondness for his work.

A pretty frank interview. It was obvious that the journalists felt comfortable. And Joachim and Frederik spoke very much day-to-day Danish, in the sense that you are speaking with or together with someone whom you know well and you also know what he/she is thinking.
So I've tried to get as close to that speech pattern as possible, knowing that it probably made the text more difficult to understand.

Here are additional pictures from the interview:

Thank you again, Muhler, for taking the time to translate this for us. It was a very informative and fun article to read!

I especially enjoyed hearing about Henrik's close relationship with his grandchildren. Hopefully he'll have many more healthy years ahead to spend with them.

My pleasure Camelot23ca & MaggieDenmark

BT has compiled a number of galleries.
First of PH's style: http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billedern...r-prins-henrik
(You may wish to wear sunglasses...)

Then some pics from PH life:
http://www.bt.dk/royale/prins-henrik...lemmer#slide-1

And an article revealing that PH is the president of an exclusive club of husbands, whose wives are more important, famours and rank higher than themselves.

And a mixed gallery, some of them are very politically incorrect today: http://www.bt.dk/royale/her-faar-2-a...igaret#slide-1

thank you Muhler! I enjoyed it very much
one of my favorite parts
"Q: Some believe that we’ve never had had our very popular Queen if she hadn’t had her husband. What do you think?F: ”That’s what a good marriage is based on. You can’t embrace it all by yourself. You should very much as a spouse supplement, inspire and build on each other. And be together”.J: ”You can put it like this: There is a Monarch, yes! But there is also a Regent Couple – and the lastbit is ever so important. That’s where the weight should be”."

Thank you so much for translating the interview, Muhler. It's good of you to keep those of us outside of Denmark informed about what's in the print media. One of the things that comes across in the interview is that Frederik and Joachim have a relaxed and close relationship. The Queen and Prince Henrik have every right to be proud of them.

I will add my thanks to the many you have already received, Muhler, for your informative and insightful translation of the princely interviews. I think the very fact that the brothers agreed to speak to the press in such a familiar way speaks volumes about the very special relationship the Danish royal family has with both the press and with Danes; tylikke! I probably didn't spell that right, but I mean to congratulate you once again on such a fascinating Danish culture and society! No wonder Danes are the happiest people in the world!

You are most kind, Gerry, Polesco & Midwestmom

I agree with you, Gerry, it isn't every day we see Joachim put an arm around a journalist. (The small picture on the rear cover). But then Trine Larsen and her photographer have followed Joachim and his family for years and also gone with him to Africa. I guess you get to know each other well that way.

To me, Polyesco, the thing I noticed the most was Frederik's reaction when Joachim got married. - Now his brother is going away...!

I've been digging for a part of an interview with QMII, I believe it was either from the portrait book in connection with her turning 70 or an interview in connection with her jubilee. It was a very honest account of how she as a naive, perhaps a little immature, young woman was swept away by that dashing Frenchman. - I know I wrote about but I can't find it. I wonder if anyone with a better memory than me (shoudn't be hard!) can help locate it?

ADDED: BT informs us that the entire DRF, with the exception of Benedikte, who is manning the fort back in DK, is now in France.
Tomorrow, Wednesday forenoon the whole family will pose for the photographers. - So lots of family pics coming up.

Yes, here are BT's article about prince Henrik holding a family birthday at Caix tomorrow: Kongefamilien på 80 års fødselsdags-ferie: Danmark regeret af vikar - Royale | www.bt.dk

Frederik has been our Regent from the 5th June and until today. Today, Princess Benedikte takes over, so I interpret it as F&M and children are traveling to Caix today. The Queen has been in France since the 6th June. So I guess the whole family will gather together as the day progresses...

However, the family will only have 1-2 days together... Frederik is already listed as Regent again on the 12th June and both him, Henrik and Mary have official events the coming days back home in Denmark.


*


And yes, a great interview from the two brothers. As others have pointed out - quite frankly and a very relaxed tone. A good way to make a interview with the pictures - it brings a lot of memories to look at pictures.

Despite living at the opposite end of the country and have quite different lives, the two brothers seem to genuine following each other's lives. Frederik even knew that Joachim was going to the hairdresser later in the day

And then, I think it was nice how Frederik repeatedly in the interview included his wife and children. When he talks about his parents' wedding his thoughts related to his own wedding with Mary. Fredenborg where him and Joachim played is now the place where his children plays around. Caix is a nice place to be also because his wife and children love to be there.

Have also enjoyed TV2's program about Prince Henrik. It has shown me a side of Henrik that I didn't know. It's a very great program TV2 have mixed together

I'm a bit surprised that there's no gala dinner for his birthday since he had one for 70 & 75. 80 is a pretty big deal.

Oh well.
