A special tomorrow for Frederik.
"HRH Crown Prince receives Wednesday, November 18, 2015 the first rice harvest since the earthquake in 2011 as a gift from the city of Higashi-Matsushim in Japan."

Gave fra byen Higashi-Matsushima i Japan - Kongehuset

"Japan was March 11, 2011 hit by an earthquake and shortly after a tsunami that claimed many lives and injuries, the Crown Prince visited shortly after the disaster stricken area around Higashi-Matsushima, and the Crown Prince's visit is still remembered by many Japanese with gratitude.

The city of Higashi-Matsushima and agriculture in the local area was hit hard by the tsunami, but in 2015 became the first rice since the disasters planted and harvested. In gratitude have Higashi-Matsushima asked the Crown Prince to present the Crown Prince the first rice harvested in Higashi-Matsushima since 11 March 2011."

what a special connection
as we know, Frederik was the first royal to visit after the disaster
Kronprinsen på besøg i Japan - 14. juni - Kongehuset
and this has not been forgotten by Japan. Just this year on Frederik's and Mary's official visit to Japan, it was remembered and Frederik and Denmark were thanked again .


and article on this very special gesture to Frederik
"Rice from Japan's tsunami coast to Denmark's Crown Prince"
https://twitter.com/japanforkant/sta...72222951780353
Ris fra Japans tsunami-kyst til Danmarks kronprins – forkant.nu
"In this situation, it is a "valuable encouragement to local farmers", the Danish Crown Prince has accepted to receive a sack of rice to his household as a gift from the municipality, says Shinji Sato, head of the agriculture department at City Hall ."

Crown Prince Frederik and Queen Margrethe participated this morning in the Council of State at Christiansborg Palace.

State Council is held usually on Wednesday mornings. The State Minister and the ministers attend the Council of State in which the Heir and the Monarch takes seats.

Today, Crown Prince Frederik also received a gift from the 2011 earthquake and tsunami affected area Higashi Matsushima in Japan. Frederik VIII's Palace, Amalienborg:

Frederik was the first royal to show his support to Japan after the disaster in 2011.

BB article and picture (sure kongehuset.dk will publish more pictures as well)

Crown Prince Frederik's visit to catastrophe affected areas of Japan in 2011:
Kronprinsen på besøg i Japan - 14. juni - Kongehuset

To my surprise - a good one - TV2 news tonight brough had a clip from Frederik receive the gift from Japan toda in Frederik 8's Palace and spoke with Frederik afterwards. It's IMO a new more open - and great way than we have seen before from the DRF. F&M nice and quietly modernize the royal house and adapts it their young generation. We also see it with the Mary Foundation having their own Facebook site.

Maybe TV2 put up the clip on their website later tonight.



As Muhler kindly pointed out to me, I'm getting old too

And I of course mean Japan - not Vietnam.

lol , it happens to us all.

What a great gesture between the two countries. Lovely to see that Frederik's trip was received and still remembered. In time of need is when you see a person's true self. (of course not only by Frederik but by the Danish red cross)

thanks Roskilde
Hopefully they do or we get an article to read his interview.

It is such a sweet gesture. And in their recent trip we saw how Japan was still filled with gratitude towards Frederik and Denmark

Yes, but unfortunately they didn't make it clear exactly why Frederik was singled out for this honor.
- That he was the very first royal at all, including the Japanese Imperial family, who went to the area. And that he went there while it was still uncertain how high the radiation level really was.

A very nice home. A beautiful gift, Frederik looks very happy to receive it. He looks great.
Nice video from 2011 too. Frederik with kids : )

DRF has surprised us with lots of great photos

Do you think the rice will be used or saved as a gift?

Curling must be considered the weirdest sport ever invented by mankind!

I mean, what kind of weed do you have to smoke in order to come up with this suggestion:
Let's attach a handle to a stone and slide it across ice in order to hit other stones. And just to make sure we don't fall asleep from boredom, let us each get a broom and sweep the ice.

And people who enjoy watching curling, must people who use Valium as a stimulant!

I used to think so too...

I couldn't understand why my husband sat up, late at night, watching curling during the Olympics in Italy years ago (our team was starting to do surprisingly well). I found myself watching too, and believe it or not, it was sooo exciting. And without Valium...I can't deny some white wine or several beer.

Well, a silver medal was the outcome and I'm still the secretary of a local "curling club", a club that never had any meetings.
I think many people in my country had a very different view of curling after those games.

We used to go curling when I was a teenager and it's fun!

Im not going to lie, I have also found myself watching curling. especially during the Olympics. maybe its the spirit of the games but you can get wrapped in

what a wonderful attitude and smile from Frederik. So handsome
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CURVMIxUkAAy-U6.jpg:large
whether its taling with delegates or at a sports event, Frederik shows a positive attitude

" - In Esbjerg Municipality, we are very proud that Crown Prince Frederik again showing interest in a major sporting event that we host. We prioritize elite sport high, and the energy that is in sports, well suited to the mood and the development of our city, told Esbjerg Municipality's Mayor, Johnny Søtrup before the official opening."

note from the DRF website
European Curling Championships 2015 - Kongehuset
"At the opening ceremony involved the Crown Prince in the parade and put the first ceremonial stone. Then the Crown Prince attend a short meeting with the Danish men's and women team.
Later in the day the Crown Prince attend the opening matches in Esbjerg Skøjtehal."

Gallery and article:
Kronprins Frederik ramte plet med den første sten - Newsbreak.dk

Article tell that Frederik hit the spot with the first stone and the stone placed perfectly in the middle of the house. Not knowing anything about curling, I guess that's good

And here video from BB:

All the bad jokes are lining up.
But I shall restrain myself and not say anything about curling-dads.

Nor shall I say anything about flying home afterwards.
