Trivia based on article in Billed Bladet #24, 2015.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Perhaps the most significant change to the Danish Constitution took place in 1915 and among the most well known changes was that women were allowed to vote and that was indeed the main focus of the celebrations the DRF took part in.

First at a gala concert on the evening of the 4th June. And except for PH, who was in England, the DRF showed up in force.
Our Marie was seen wearing sandals by Jimmy Choo.
While Mary wore a Burberry Prorsum silk dress. A Bottega Veneta clutch, Valentino Stilettos and Kharisma earrings from Marianne Dulong.
The main celebrations however took place on Constitution Day the 5th June at the Parliament and here QMII gave a very witty speech that rocked the house!
QMII pointed out that the change not only allowed women to vote, but in the words used back in 1915 also: "Madams, servants (domestic and farm, who lived in the home of their employer), the poor, the ruined (economically ruined and indebted) and the silly".

BT reports that PH along with Joachim and our Marie visited the entertainment park Bakken (the hill) in Copenhagen.
Royalt besøg: Prins Henrik fik raget skægget af i Korsbæk - Royale | www.bt.dk

Here they visited the latest attraction a reconstruction from a fictitious town called Korsbæk, from a much loved TV-series called Matador (Monopoly).
The reconstruction includes actors who play out various scenes from the series as you move from house to house.
Both Mary and Marie got Matador on DVD to help them learn Danish but first and foremost to learn about Danish mentality.
And indeed Marie seemed to find the place very familiar.
PH got a shave from the barber, while a couple of actors dressed as the characters from the series fuzzed around him.

After this little visit the trio went to the Circus Revue(*), that also takes place at Bakken, and here PH was brought to tear with laughter when he watched the much beloved actor Ulf Pilgaard make a parody of PH.

Bakken, that was established about the same time as Tivoli in Copenhagen, around 1840' 1850's something, was initially an amusement park for the common man, while Tivoli was the amusement park for the more respectable citizens. Decent people, let alone ladies, wouldn't be caught dead at Bakken! Good heavens, what would the vicar think?!?
But PH is very fond of Bakken and he is visiting the place every year as we have seen so often in this forum.

Here is a visible proof that whatever faults PH may have, lack of self irony is not one of them. Ulf Pilgaard as PH: http://multimedia.pol.dk/archive/009...70_937026a.jpg

A closer look at the trio: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...k-p-bakken.jpg

Mostly for other Danes: I see PH is wearing his Johnny Reimer outfit.

(*) The summer revues are an old tradition here in DK, where more or less professional ensembles deal with current events in a loving and satirical way. The DRF of course being a favorite target.
The Cirkus Revue is highly professional. usually Ulf Pilgaard make masterly parodies of QMII, but this year he thought PH deserved the honor...

thank you Muhler for all the background info

My does Joachim looked tanned or what?

And i do hope when the time comes, Henrik leaves all his colorful coats to Joachim, as the rightful heir of his father's colorful fashion sense

Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim surprised the local population of Trend when they joined them for the lightening of the traditional bonfire welcoming the Summer, yesterday evening. The Princes were in the area for a hunt and decided to attend the celebrations, talking with the locals and takings some pictures. After seeing the bonfire, father and sons rejoined their hunting party.

Thank you, Blog Real and Polyesco.

So they have been hunting in the area of the Trend hunting lodge.
I don't think any of the children were with them at the lodge though. The school summer holiday hasn't started yet.

Nice to see PH being most comfortable.

What a lovely Tradition to welcome IN the summer. I am sure we don't have anything like that here. Some farmers here have harvest festivals though.

A video of PH, our Marie, Joachim and friends going to the Cirkus Revue, I told you about in a previous post: VIDEO: Prins Henrik ser Cirkusrevyens parodi på sig selv | Billed Bladet

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #26, 2015.
Written by Henrik Salling.

As you can tell people spontanous applauded when PH and co entered.
The main item of the show was in this case the actor Ulf Pilgaard's parody on PH. Something he and he guests appear to have enjoyed.
However, PH had explain a few details to his daughter-in-law, who sat next to him.
No doubt because Ulf Pilgaard spoke with a phony French accent, with deliberate wrong pronunciations that makes a word mean something completely different in Danish. So no wonder if Marie missed a couple of nuances.
PH aka Ulf Pilgaard confided to the audience that he he is doing some shiiting (shooting), but that chamberlain, Christian Kjær is easy to hit... (Visibly making PH and co cracking up as you can tell in the video).
Because PH's very good good friend, and (well build...) hunting buddy, Christian Kjær was there too with his wife, Susan. So was Anna von Lowzow and husband Klaus, as well as a nephew of PH, Charles Henri Keller.

During the intermission the party went backstage to meet the actors. After the show the party went to enjoy a dinner together. PH said about the parody: "It was a good parody. Funny. Just as it should be".

PH aka Ulf Pilgaard, made several references to becoming king during his parody.

They're hunting? And not wearing neckties? An open-necked shirt on Joachim? I'm shocked!! Shocked, I tell you What is the world coming to? But it's nice that someone gave PH a comfortable seat.

You are absolutely right, MidwestMom

This is how a gentleman-hunter ought to be attired: https://app.box.com/s/vox02y5uxp72s5ckfoz7

I blame it on the government...

As you know Frederik with his father and little brother attended the Sankt Hans lightening in Trend during a hunt in Trend the same day.

A woman has posted this photo on Facebook after meeting and having a picture with her future King at the lightening:

"So lucky to meet a Prince to the St. Hans in Trend "

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #27, 2015.
Written by Trine Larsen.

As you know PH, Joachim and Frederik went to midsummer bonfire (Sankt Hans in DK) near Trend.
That was actually more or less by accident.

The Regent Couple are residing at Marselisborg these weeks and since QMII was called to Copenhagen several times in connection with the election PH visited QMII's former LiW, Lena Lüttichau (*), at Mølleborg Country House for a cozy time with bridge, before he and his party (complete with dachshund) went on to Trend hunting Lodge. Here he met with his two sons who happened to be in that part of the country. Joachim because he had an engagement at the open air museum at Lejre. Frederik because he was on his way to Aalborg for the Special Forces Command ceremony to be held there.
So all three of them went hunting for deers near Trend from before sun up (that's around 03.30 at this time of year) until 21.00, an hour and a half before sunset. So it had been a very long day! Sitting in an armchair with his dachshund in his lap PH with his sons standing behind him enjoyed the bonfire and the communal singing.

That was a surprise to the several hundred locals and many got a handshake.

All the wives were left back home somewhere.

(*) All QII's Liw's are personal friends. I believe Lena Lüttichau was the one who after leaving Dannebrog PH took by her arm and presented her to the waiting press as: "This is my mistress".
