Hello UserDane!
Thanks for answering my question!
I can't wait to see Christian and little Isabella in their summer attire for this photoshoot. August 7? Not to far off.

I haven't seen any plans for Mary's return to work; perhaps sometimes in August; right now there isn't much going on in Denmark with everyone on summer holidays.
But isn't that just for Margrethe & Henrik? I thought they were the only ones who did a press conference at the Chateau in France - the family photo session (with Margrethe, Benedikte, Anne-Marie and families) is held at Gråsten Palace during the summer

ETA: the calender also says "04/08 07 - Fotografering på Gråsten Slot kl. 11.30." I'd assume that would be the photo session at Gråsten Palace !!

You are right JessRulz - it is usually only for the queen and Prince Henrik - and then Frederik is regent at home.
yes, the session on 4 August is a photo session at Gråsten Slot; it was lovely last year with lots of cousins visiting like in the good old days of queen Ingrid. Hope it will be the same this year.
Am not sure if Frederik will be in the photo session though; think there is an event in Copenhagen on 4 August - soccer world championship for homeless people - which he will attend.

It's unfortunate that many had to ask when the Crown Prince couple's upcoming engagements will be -- when and where -- when there is an official DRF translated calender posted every month with constant updates here.

Perhaps today I will make a seperate translated calender of events, for every month, specifically for the Crown Prince couple and sticky it on top of this sub-forum.

For those who still don't know, Mary may attend the CIFF events, held on August 9-12. She will also be in NYC this season* for S/S 2008 Fashion Week to support the Malene Birger's first NYFW collection. Prior to that the Crown Prince couple will be in NYC to promote Danish Exports from Sept 17-21.

Regarding immediate engagements for the couple, Mary is cleared, except for the CIFF, for the month of August. Frederik is regent from the 6-31 and has limited events this month.

As I previously noted, I'll make a seperate calender so members won't be confused as to what is going on with the couple's engagements.




*This is an early schedule that I have, and those listed will be the designers showing at the Bryant Park tents. Not all designers show at BP including MB. When an updated schedule is released I'll post it.

I hope no one gets mad at me--I'm new here. But doesn't Frederik always have limited events? He seems like a nice chap, but doesn't appear to be the hardest working of fellows. But pleasant seeming.

Somebody will probably get mad at me too, but I guess Fred does a lot of sailing, and its seems like that is considered an official duty.

Welcome to the forums, Soriagirl.

Don't worry it's an honest question that has a simple answer. During the month of August it tends to be very slow regarding the DRF engagements. It's a big holiday month so it makes sense for his calender (as well as the rest of the family) to be very light than say in October.

Frederik will probably attend both - the photo session is at 11:30, while the soccer event is at 16:50

This is a misunderstanding of things. The calendars are not updated for the whole month at the Danish Royals' official websites. They are only updated week by week. So we have no idea what the schedule is for August, apart from the first few days and the regency.

There is no indication until the next calendar update, whether the Crown Princess will still be on maternity leave.
I don't dispute that we know of other upcoming events through press releases. I am just saying that for AUGUST the official calendar entries are not added yet, and they will only appear one week at a time.

I am not mad at you, but why are you saying that it's considered an official duty? Official duties are on their calendar, and do you see any sailing on his calendar ? That is his private hobby, so it is not on the official calendar, just like that when Mary goes out horse riding or goes to Milan to see a Prada fashion show, it's not on their calendar.

I read this in the forums, I will see if I can find the post. It had something to do with his sailing creating interest. Anyways, we don't know that Mary spends a lot of time horse riding or in fashion shows but it does seem that Fred is always off somewhere, sailing.

Sorry, but there is no misundersatnding at all.

I have a copy of Malene Birger's NYFW information in which it specifically notes, "...and in September during New York Fashion week, attended by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark..." To see her past collection please click here

Second, Mary usually attends the CIFF under low key circumstances (meaning without the press knowing) since she is a key patron for these events. It's not unusal for her to be there without anyone knowing. She takes great pride in her charities and the CIFF is no different.

Third, I have it on good authority (and it has been discussed on another board) that the Crown Prince couple will be in NYC this September to promote Danish exports via Creative Nations. Furthermore, he is supposed to give a speech on Sept 20.

Of course things could change, but this latter information comes from a very reliable source and has always been honest and truthful when it comes to the engagements of the Crown Prince couple.

Fourth, I read Danish and since it is I who updates the calender, I do know they have the calender "set" for each month.

Of course they add and take away events if a particular member must cancel (or whatever), but the calender is always set three to four days prior to the next month.

To conclude, you are wrong on a lot of things. However, Mary and/or Frederik could bow out of any of their engagements at the last minute.

Sailing has always been a very important part of Danish tourism industry. When the former communist countrys at the Baltic sea became parts of the EU, they started numerous improvements to their marinas and sailing possibilities for tourists. Thus it is very important for Denmark to be seen as "the country" at the Baltic Sea for sailng. The Crown Prince and his sailing activities is a very important ambassador and PR-attractor for Denmark, which saved a lot of jobs and businesses in the coastal regions when the fishing industry went down by exploring sailing as alternative business venture. Sailing is not only fun, for Denmark it means business.

Fred should hire you as his PR secretary. Are you saying that rich people - let's face it, it's a rich men's sport - around the world would be more likely to sail their private yatchs to Denmark because the Danish crown prince sails in some competitions and finish usually at the bottom of the list and that somehow enhances Denmark's reputation around the world as a sailing country?

Sailing is by no means only a rich man's sport. A boat for up to four people cost a renting price of 50 EUR a day, a boat for up to 8 people 85 EUR a day when you sail on the various lakes in Germany. A trailer parking space and usage of a slipping place is available from 300 EUR the season. So this is really affordable and these are the people who spent a week or two at the Baltic Sea to go sailing in open waters (the North Sea is much rougher and tougher, here people prefer the Dutch Isselmeer, kind of gigantic laguna connected to the North Sea). I just checked - you may rent a yacht for up to 8 people (3 cabins) for a week at the Baltic Sea from 1,200 EUR. Try to find a beach hotel in that area to beat this price per person per night!! The charter agency who offers this price offers up to 2.100 yachts in the Baltic Sea alone! And there are myriads of charter businesses. This is big business.

From the northern German ports on the Baltic Sea (Heiligenhafen, Kiel, Flensburg) they can sail up to Denmark or they decide on going east to the New Federal States of Germany (Former East-Germany), Poland, Latvia etc. Thus it is a tough fight for these sailing tourists between the countries bordering the Baltic Sea and anything which hightens the attraction of Denmark will be appreciated in the country itself, even if not by foreigners who don't sail.

Yeah sure Crown Prince Frederik is such a bad sailor. Some of his sailing buddies are multible world champions. They compete in every race thats available. If Fredeik would go sailing so often he would be crucified by the same people who now wants to call him a bad sailor. Hm think he is crucified allready .

Btw. Google, Crown Prince Frederik and sailing would help to judge Frederiks sailing abilities. The Farr 40 class exists since 10 years. Frederik sails a Farr 40 boat for 3 years.

The last results.

5 - 8 July 2007 - Hankø, Norway
Nanoq place 16 out of 27

12 -14 July 2007 - Skagen, Denmark
NANOQ place 6 out of 23.

Before he participated in the Farr 40 series he was a world class sailor in the Dragon Class.

"Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark ended in fourth place at the European Championship Dragon Class (sailing) in Kinsale, Ireland. The Crown Prince and his crew had been leading after four out of six races. 51 boats participated." - This was in 2003, of course maybe my standard isn't high enough to call someone world class.....

Well, I see it this way - whether or not he is doing this as part of his duties or as part of a past time, every person is entitled to their hobbies. I imagine that not every single sailing expidition is noted. He is a person, and CP or not, he is entitled to down time.

Question

May I ask a question, quite possibly I should know the answer. But I just haven't been able to keep up like usual lately. But I noticed it was said that Fred will be regent from Aug. 6-31. May I ask where the Queen will be? Also about Mary attending fashion week in NYC, does she normally attend or is she just going in supprt of the specific designer mentioned in the link from Glittering Tiaras post(#165)? So sorry for the questions I just feel a little lost lately with keeping up with all the RF's.
