Thanks Iceflower, it sounds like it's been a fun evening out with their mom :)

I had thought there would be a lot more pictures, especially when Christian and Isabella was with her, but maybe I just have to wait. Maybe more images become available during the day

Well, let's see . . . she's gracefully and Crown Princessly making nice with the their hosts, receiving flowers and . . . oh yes, shaking hands while watching the kids don't get too close to the very large animals and the camera's don't get too close to the kids, so no spare hands which is why the lady in waiting is there in the first place!

I don't know about you but I would only have to watch the kids and hold my bag . . .

Translation of article in Billed Bladet #36, 2012.
Christian og Isabella i manegen – Christian and Isabella in the circus ring.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen. (1)

Crown Princess Mary was the guest of honour when the Kidney Association invited to a special performance at Cirkus Dannebrog, where there were clowns, acrobats, camels, zebras as well as elephants on the poster.
With her the Crown Princess brought her two oldest children, Prince Christian and Princess Isabella.
On arrival the royal three-clover was received by a flock of children as well as leading persons from the Kidney Association, for which Mary is a patron and by the Cirkus Dannebrog family, Enoch. (2)
For Christian and Isabella it was a particularly nice welcome, they got neatly wrapped presents by a couple of similar aged in the welcoming committee. (3)
Hardly had the audience found their places around the circus ring before the royal children got a ride on a pair of circus-camels, who with Christian and Isabella on the back nailed it to the floor and whooshed around for couple of minutes. (4) Crown Princess Mary was one big smile while her two oldest rode round the ring and caused cheer from the first blow of the whistle. Christian and Isabella were in fact impressively good at holding on to the humps and (they) didn’t look like wanting to get off when the ride was over. But the show had to start and it was certainly also a big experience and really something for Mary and the children, who enjoyed the entertainment, while they ate popcorn and drank lemonade.
In the intermission between first and second part of the show, there was also popcorn on the menu, but this time not only for Christian and Isabella. Mary and the children were led outside to meet Dannebrog’s grand African elephant, Ramboline (5) that stood and waited to receive them for an audience.
- “Now I’ll walk up to the elephant”, said Christian, who couldn’t wait to grab Ramboline’s trunk. (6) He went on ahead with firm steps. The little circus-prince therefore got to the large animal as the first and immediately offered his hand. The elephant responded with a firm and kind shake of the trunk and that sort of broke the ice.
Shortly after Prince Christian was busy feeding his new and very big friend popcorns. Isabella too was on the feeding-team, but she wasn’t quite pleased with the behaviour of the elephant during the precourse.
- “Phew, it squirts”, said Isabella when Ramboline with its trunk had blown some of her popcorns out of the paper cone and at the same time delivered an extra moist greeting on Bella’s little hands. (7) That may be the reason why Mary afterwards admonishing her daughter, who in the middle of the elephant-dinner also wanted to try and taste a few popcorns.
- “Don’t eat that”, were the sensible words from the Crown Princess while more and more gathered in line behind the royals, to help with the feeding.
- “Bella and Christian now you must make room for the other children”, were the words from Mary, and then her polite children tossed the last popcorns in the mouth of the elephant, whereupon they made room for the next team of feeders.
The royal circus-guests then strolled back to the tent in order to take their places at the circus ring and enjoy the second half of the special performance of the Dannebrog and the Kidney Association. But before the whistle blew for the start of second half, Christian and Isabella got a very private and secret ride on the back of an elephant. Behind closed canvas the royal children rode a couple of lapses around the circus ring on their thick-skinned friend.
After the ride on the elephant Christian, Isabella and Mary leaned back and enjoyed the second part of the show. Christian with a grand flashing light sabre in all the colours of the rainbow and Isabella with a little flashing circus-hat on her head. Light sabre and flashing headband-hat were a couple of gifts Mary’s children got during the intermission.
Around 21.00 Cirkus Dannebrog closed down and turned out the light after a grand evening in the tent at Fish Market (Fisketorvet) in Copenhagen and all circus-fans went home happy.



- What strikes me, looking at all the pictures, is how comfortable and at ease, Christian in particular but also Isabella, are in the public glare.

(1) Whose style can be quite flowery and therefore a challenge to translate.

(2) Cirkus Dannebrog has been a family run business for generations.

(3) Presumably toys as the wrapping is from a toy store.

(4) A caption says that Christian said: “Hi”, when he entered the circus ring on the camel. And in one picture Isabella is smiling decidedly proud and delighted.

(5) Female version of the name Rambo.

(6) A caption says that Bella was more hesitant.

(7) I hope the pictures in the article will be online soon. There are two absolutely hilarious pics of Bella with the elephant. First with a nosecurlingly “Yuck!”-expression on her face. Then a wide-eyed “Wah!!”-expression.

So judging from your quotes I gather Mary calls her daughter "Bella" in everyday life, instead of the full "Isabella".

thank you Muhler for the translation (all of them really).

It looks like Christian and Isabella both had fun at the circus, and i agree that they both seem ok with the press right now

i think so, i remenber that Christian also calls Isabella 'Bella', we heard him say that when it was the winter holiday photosession in the snow early this year.
i wonder if Mary will call Josephine of 'Josie'...
maybe its only the girls who get shortnames, i doubt Christian and Vincent will have that.

Yes, it's not the first time Isabella has been referred to as Bella, by the DRF.

I think Josephine will be called Josie by Mary's family, not so sure about her Danish relatives and friends.
The same thing for Vincent, Vince or something like that by Mary's family but I doubt the Danish side will call him that.
Christian, well, short for Christian in Danish could be Chrisser, if called anything at all.

And you are welcome, ladies.

That is in general the most common nickname for Isabella here in Denmark (my baby sister is named Isabella and she's also been Bella since day one).

Jose is a possibility, I know a surprisingly big amount of Josephine's (and Josefine's) who's all been called Jose (pronounced like 'Josse' in Danish, not sure how you would pronounce it in English).

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #41, 2012.
Mary sagde farvel - Mary said goodbye.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

The Master of Ceremonies, the colorful and likable Christian Eugen Olsen has now retired after 23 years of service.
As such he held a farewell reception in one of the royal halls at Christiansborg Palace.
Representing the DRF at the reception was Mary, who came rushing from a meeting. (Wearing a green blouse and a tight greyish skirt, should any pics emerge online).
Eugen Olsen's replacement is Kim Kristensen, colonel and Afghanistan veteran and until recently defence attache at the embassy in Paris.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #44, 2012.
Fets for en god sag - Party for a good cause.
Written by Lisbeth Grube.

As you know Mary went to the gala for the Lung Association at the Royal Theatre. The gala celebrated that it is twenty years ago the first lung transplant took place in DK and a number of actors, entertainers and singers went on stage. One of them was Preben Christensen, who is mentioned in the subject about the death of Tina Jørgensen.

Mary sat during the show in the royal box and she was addressed during the show by among others the actor Martin Brygmann, who was dressed up as Australian Todd (*) and he said to Mary that she should look out for her "big nice looking lungs".

During the intermission, Mary mingled and met some lung patients. Among them ten year old Emily, who is suffering from a rare lung desease.
The surplus from the gala will go to lung research.

(*) I don't know if that's a specific character in a play, or whether he is a figure invented for the occasion.
