Frederik has been all over the place this past week.

Summary of two articles in Billed Bladet #14, 2011.
Written by Anna Johannesen & the Ulrik Ulriksen.

Last week he visited the Australian ambasador, James Choi in his private residence in Hellerup. (Posh part of Copenhagen).
Frederik said hello from Mary, and the ambassador fully appreciated why Mary wasn't there: "She must have her hands full".

The purpose of the visit is that the exhibition Sculpture by the Sea will come to Denmark again this year.
63 artists from 21 countries will be represented. The exhibtion will start on the 2. June and the sculptures will be placed in Aarhus. (*)

Friday last week, Frederik was the guest of honor at the Royal Theatre for the play Fanny and Alexander. He did not sit in the royal box, but among the ordinary paying guests.

Saturday evening Frederik went to see the premiere of the movie: Juan, by Kapser Holten. And he stayed for the afterparty in the foyer of the cinema afterwards. No wonder as many of M&F's personal friends were there as well.

The up Sunday morning so he could fly to London, for the SportAccord Convention, which ended Tuesday.

(*) The last time the exhibition was in DK it was a colossal success! Mind you, they had found the perfect location to place the sculptures. Aarhus has a unique combination of beach, bay, city and forest which provided a very scenic (and practical) setting for the exhibtion.
Mrs. Muhler and I went to the first exhibition and we are sure going to this one as well.
I should be very much mistaken if M&F, and QMII as well won't drop by to see the exhibition. Especially as it's almost next door to Marselisborg.



Summary of article in Billed Bladet #14, 2011.
Frederik alene til Afrika - Frederik alone to Africa.
Written by Trine Larsen.

Towards the end of May, Frederik will travel to Mosambique on behalf of Danish Red Cross for four days.
The schedule will be pretty strenous which is why Mary will not go with him.

The purpose of the trip is to put focus on poverty and not least the living conditions of the children there, prior to the nation wide fundrasing later this year, in which Frederik is also involved. - And presumably Mary as well.

Red Cross has a number of ongoing projects in Mosambique and Frederik is going to visit a number of these.

Full translation of article in Billed Bladet #15, 2011.
Festlige Frederik i London – Cheerful Frederik in London.
Interviewer: Trine Larsen.

- I’ve decided to translate this article in full because it provides us with an interesting glimpse into how Frederik is on a one to one basis. Trine Larsen usually cover Joachim and Alexandra and that makes it more interesting.

Only ten days prior to the christening of the twins Frederik has popped over to London for a couple of days. Away from children and christening-preparations, but not, as you might think, for a couple of days of peace and quiet.
Nope, the busy father of four may get a full nights sleep for the first time since long ago but on the other hand he has a tight schedule where he is on from early morning to late in the evening.
Despite that Crown Prince Frederik has agreed to an interview with Billed Bladet in London, where the Crown Prince is attending Sports Accord, a kind of summit of the sporting world.
When we meet him in the foyer of the hotel where the conference takes place, and where he incidentally walks around completely unnoticed, he is really feeling at home. And as such it’s a relaxed and cheerful Crown Prince we meet. He immediately agrees to a few pictures taken outside so that you can tell that he is in London. That despite that it is raining and that the Crown Prince is only wearing a suit. “A bit of water, that’ll be alright”. Says the Crown Prince obligingly and indeed he didn’t get more wet than what his twins will when they get water in the head during the baptism.
Right outside the revolving door to the conference center are seven or eight English police officers standing, the so called Bobbies. (*) “Really, you won’t get me to pose with them”, says the Crown Prince and indicates with his head towards the police constables. “That sure could be funny pictures. – Then we’ll have to get them to come over here”, says yours truly from Billed Bladet and raises the voice towards the officers, while I in English say: “He did it” and points at the Crown Prince. That results in the Crown Prince laughing heartily and while we goof around an continue to build on the story he says with a smile: “Yeah, and what a headline and story you could write/make/brew”.
You bet. But instead we move a bit father away and get the crown Prince positioned so that the landmark of London, Big Ben, can be seen in the background.
When we enter the hotel again, the foyer is full of people attending the conference and there is neither space nor peace enough to have a conversation anywhere. We walk around and look and suddenly the Crown Prince notice that there is room and calm in the press center.
“Let’s go in there he suggests”, while I teasingly say: “Are you sure you’ll voluntarily enter a press center”?
The interview has been underway for a few minutes when a beautiful woman apologetically interrupts us in English. Enthusiastically about seeing the Crown Prince she asks whether her assistant can take a picture of them together. The Crown Prince laughingly obliges and after a couple of trials the picture is nailed.
“Do you (**) know who it was”, asks the Crown Prince. And as we are clueless he apparently fel like teasing (us) and while we asks whether is was someone we should know, he replies with a secretive look in his face: “Yeah, guess”. And while bewilderment spreads and the brain is worling on overdrive with suggestions for who the beautiful woman can be, Frederik looks very amused indeed.
After a couple of questions in order to narrow it down the Crown Prince jokingly asks his private secretary, Morten Roland: “Shall we give that story to Billed Bladet”? We get it. After a little pressure the Crown Prince reveals that it is Katarina Witt, former ice skating princess and present chairman of the delegation: Winter Olympics for München (Munic) 2018.

- There isn’t much substance in the interview itself, so I’ve omitted that. And as Viv translated the other day, Frederik stated clearly that he and Mary had not been invited to the British wedding. As he understood it, only heads of states had been invited.

(*) Or is it Bobbyer, when it’s plural?

(**) Formal you.

For those in the know: BB is up and running again. Just do what you usually do.

Thanks iceflower.

Great photos.
It appears the children enjoyed have the Crown Prince there as much as he enjoyed being there. Frederik looks good in the pink shirt.

Something I didn't notice before when looking at the photos, CP Frederik no longer has his beard .
I liked him with the beard but he looks great without it.

Thanks, Iceflower

Summary of note in Billed Bladet #18, 2011.
Frederik på ski i Nuuk - Frederik skiing in Nuuk. (*)
Written by Anna Johannsen.

Right after the Easter holiday Frederik went to Greenland to inagurate a skilift there. (**) As always a lot of children gathered around him and the all got a high five from him.
He said: "It's a pleasure for me to attend the opening of the skilift here in Nuuk, so that there will be more focus on healthy activities (***) and healthy lifestyle. That's something we all need".
He then skied at full throttle down the hill.
After that he said: "I've been skiing myself since I was a small boy and (I) still find delight in that".

(*) Nuuk is the capital town of Greenland.

(**) Greenland has a lot of natural resources but the arctic climate makes them expensive and difficult to mine and until at has been figured out whether large scale mining is even practical, Greenland hopes to attract tourists, hence the skilift.

(***) Obesity among children and young is also a problem in Greenland, where the climate prevents a number of outdoor activities which are possble in warmer climates. - And indoor activities are expensive.....

Well, as much as I would like to see Mary out in public again too...just to see what she will wear next...I have to applaud her for saying NO for the sake of sanity (travelling with twins or even 4 kids under 5 is a challenge) and it shows, despite what naysayers believe family and stability is most important to Mary and her kids, not public appearances...
