Extremely rich! According to an article I read just the other day, each of the (adult) children of the LEGO family are worth quite a number of billions of DKK.
But they are also very discreet.

And that´s the difference between "nyrige" og "gammelrige" ("newly rich" and "old rich")

Yeah, but at least the money are well spend and the bricks last generations. I have nephews and nieces who played with the same bricks I played with.
And anyone who has ever stepped on a LEGO brick in a dark room will surely agree with me that they are excellent anti-personnel weapons as well.

I stepped on a piece of my niece's Lego just a few days ago - they are deadly! :)

Frederik and Mary visit a smokehouse during a visit to the Danish island Bornholm.
The press asks Frederik if he will hold a herring so they can take a good picture, but he puts his arm around Mary and says "No thank you, I have my own herring"
“Herring” is a Danish slag word for “a beautiful/hot women”.
awww, that's so sweet

A number of less wellknown pictures of mainly Frederik, some of them from the DRF's own albums.

Ordinary seamen Joachim and Frederik: https://app.box.com/s/zt0qq8g603gct199rjp6

Joachim and Frederik on their first official duty - naming a ferry: https://app.box.com/s/v51kx4sbjhxfw9estq70

Joachim and Frederik on their first day at school. Everybody wore that jeans outfit back then. So did I and with the same length of hair. https://app.box.com/s/tcg7duo7nko2kcf5cvxn The woman is their beloved nanny, Else Petersen.

Frederik when he turned eighteen. Notice his frontteeth: https://app.box.com/s/qwtaxdtylp92kqo41bq4

Frederik starting at Aarhus University: https://app.box.com/s/tq4mixjit8hm2x2pdvtn

After having studied at Harward, Frederik bought a red cadillac and drove across USA (PET was there too). At some point they visited a danish American (with a multitude of kids it seems) and took them for a little drive.
Time passed - no sign of Frederik and the children. PET had not gone with him. Then he showed up. He had merely driven the children to an icecream kiosk and treated them with ice. - Something they obviously appreciated! https://app.box.com/s/93hynn9vthzh2syqj2mq

Frederik's first day as a recruit in The Royal Lifeguard: https://app.box.com/s/g0thebu0jjo0f2jy789a

After completing bootcamp, Frederik went to NCO school, which is obligatory for all who wish to attend an officers academy like Frederik did later: https://app.box.com/s/l31909xr3b7e69jnvwga

It's not only our resident member, Polyesco, who has a tendency to swoon at the sight of Frederik. Here in Greenland during the Sirius 2000 Expedition. https://app.box.com/s/cn1rn8e5nj7abf2hspal

And here is something more to swoon over. Don't say I don't spoil you. https://app.box.com/s/derjqx3myd2n5392zo5t

Joachim and Frederik at the piano and no Frederik has not inherited a flair for playing music: https://app.box.com/s/donujf35240gu3tditwc

From a book about Frederik which unfortunately hasn't been published outside DK.

You are welcome.

Well, back in 1997 Frederik was IIRC still in the Frogman Corps and he apparantly didn't have a valet then and anyway the visit was only for a couple of days. So Frederik packed his own suitcases, including socks - without bothering to check whether there were holes.
He would naturally have discovered the holes in Japan, but what the heck, he would be wearing shoes, so who would notice?
Except that he was to attend a Japanese tea ceremony and what do you normally do when you go inside in Japan?
He did afterwards state that he regretted he hadn't checked his socks beforehand.

Frederik tells in the book: ..."The comical bit for me was that I arrived suitable attired in suit and tie but completely unprepared for the fact that you have to drop your shoes and sit down on your knees. Back then there weren't so many with me in my entourage and in the morning I had just quickly pulled on som stockings - and then there were holes in them.
The press thought it was hilarious. That here I come, fresh Frederik, and then there are holes in the socks. But I wasn't thrashed as being messy in the papers and there wasn't critique of lacking councelling either. The press-image was more like that it was a hoot, and how good it is that Frederik is human".
But since then he has been more vigilant and he now has servants (a valet) on important trips abroad. You have to look your best in order to show your hosts respect.

- He's got that one right! If there is one thing that can give me the urge to slap people in the back of the heads it's celebs who dress fashionably sloppy because it's about MEEE and not the event or the hosts.

The book these pics are from is richly illustrated, so here are some more.

I see from the number of hits that the pic from M&F's courting days was popular, so here are three more. Apparantly Frederik went to Australia at least five times during the first year he knew Mary and before the press knew about their relationship.
https://app.box.com/s/0vmq4qz0a2dabgvtx4ip

https://app.box.com/s/vvnjqn7b7jnc2zoakx6j

https://app.box.com/s/sbceizfth1t6avuu5g42

If you didn't know it, you would be forgiven for believing Frederik and Joachim are not brothers. The Sweaters and Jackets were high fashion back the - everybody wore them.
https://app.box.com/s/urynz2758djf1wuwh93p

https://app.box.com/s/gcw7ie7nwy21bjjzh02s

Frederik has a good rapport with the Greenlanders. Here he meets a hunter whom he got to know on an earlier travel:
https://app.box.com/s/gjkiqt5lbvdysqc3zxww

The hole in the sock incident is unlikely to happen again, because he now has a valet:
https://app.box.com/s/0ctam4n74njw7t7cqjqh

This picture is from the lodge in Trend, where Queen Ingrid also liked to go. The picture is interesting in the sense that it's one of the few pics at least I have seen of the lodge close up:
https://app.box.com/s/e0o12eitnot7hwx2tdbg

This picture is unique. It show QMII and Frederik greeting Cubas Fidel Castro during a UN summit in Copenhagen. It was the first time Fidel Castro was ever seen at such an event without wearing a uniform.
Being the head of state present with the longest seniority protocol dictated that he was seated next to the host QMII. - Should have been interesting! Fidel Castor is known to be very talkative and QMII who represents everything he is against, would certainly not have been intellectually daunted by him. She would, I'm sure, also have been able to quote Karl Marx...
https://app.box.com/s/yzno7w4z5bhrrh532h6e

This is among the very first pictures of Frederik:
https://app.box.com/s/1xkh6qlkkcnyml3e34f6

During the expedition to Mongolia Frederik kept a diary, and let me put it like this; I can read it...
https://app.box.com/s/s6gzvnhk805h6awrgjpz

A continuation of the story where Frederik took the children for a drive and bought ice for them. This is when he drove up in the drive-way - and yes he did drive with a child on his lap:
