Thanks for clip and all those who responded! :)

I wasn't sure if she knew the language prior to meeting her husband or not...it seems difficult but I agree it is necessary if you are to one be head of the country.

I found this article: Mary har psykiske problemer - Side2
and I wondered: When did Crownprincess Mary talked to "Her og Nu" about "her" mental disorder?

This was just the thing I wondered about... She said, that she has many fears...

Princess Mary's trip to Oz | The Daily Telegraph

"CROWN Princess Mary could soon be on her way to Tasmania to introduce her young daughter Princess Isabella to her Australian heritage.

Crown Prince Frederik has told Danish magazine Billed Bladet that he and Mary expect to bring seven-month-old Isabella and two-year- old Christian on a family visit to Tasmania soon."

In the latest edition of Berlingske Tindende there is a nice article about the Crown Prince couple in which they talk about their lives with their children and so forth.

They note the difficulties as well as day to day challenges, "balance" is key, of being parents to two young children whereupon they explain how both, Christian and Isabella, have two completely opposite personalities. They go on to thank the thousands of Danish citizens who sent them baby gifts, and they are happy for the thoughtfulness of the Danes.

Thank you for these adorable pictures MissSaga. Especially those with the kids are wonderful and it's great to see them as what they are - a normal family: father, mother and two cute children. It's a pleasure to see these pictures after all these ridiculous speculations and odd theories about this couple and their children in 2007. They simply do their own thing and I love that!

Hoho, here someone tried to "erase" all rumours EB and Trine spread.
It´s nice to see their cute kids again, but IMO the pics with the tree and advent calendar (I guess this is one ) would have done it. Otherwise IMO things seem (at least after this year...with the book and all) a bit "enforced" (no matter, if they are or aren´t)

They are without doubt the most beautiful photographs of a contemporary royal couple and family that I have ever seen. Mary is luminous.

I'm seriously considering moving to Denmark - her skin is so pale and lovely - not an ounce of Australian sun damage to be seen. Oh that we could all be so lucky!

Isabella looks like her big brother! The pictures of the couple are a bit cheesy, but I guess they were having a little bit of fun. Thanks for the links!

Berlingske also had a lengthy interview with the couple - where they talk about their everyday life.

* They try to spend as much a time as possible with Isabella and Christian, especially mornings and evenings.

* They asked people they knew with children on how to raise them - Frederik asked Joachim, who had boys, especially with the first one.

* Mary was quite surprised at the news that Frederik apparently had a horrible childhood, because from the things he's told he, it had seemed like a happy one where they spent a lot of time together, even if it might not have been the meals, which Frederik confirms.

* Isabella is teething at the moment, and therefore up in the nights. As she sleeps in Mary and Frederiks room, it means less time for sleep for them.

* Isabella has much more temprament than Christian - much more happy and much more angry.

* It is important to them to both give the children privacy, but at the same time make them used to the media circus in which they'll be living - and bring them to smaller arrangements when possible so they can get used to it. They also hope that the children will be able to make their mistakes growing up outside the spotlights, and like that the press respects Christian's day care and that he can be without cameras there.

* Christian is getting in the "present-age" for Christmas. The parents think that he should only get enough so that he can properly appreciate them.

Kronprinsparret - kapitel 1: »Vi begynder dagen med at lave havregrød« - Danmark


The second part of the interview is about their work.

* Mary chose fashion as a starting point because it is important for Denmark, but it is also something that isn't overly complicated as a beginner's patronage. She was surprised at the attention - and don't think she would've got the same "branding" if she had chosen wind-mills as her first patronages. As time goes on, she has chosen to move more into social areas.

* They're trying to figure out how they want to prepare for their lives as King and Queen.

* They want to prepare Christian as much as possible for the future he has in front of him.

Also some pictures from the park: Berlingske.dk

norwegianne, thanks for translating part/all of the interview.

That answers why the couple look abit tired in the pictures.

The pictures of Fred & Mary are lovely, but dont like the ones under the tree. Lovely to see them including ziggy in the pictures

That would mean that someone would actually be able to remember what EB and Trine Villemann claimed - LOL. EB and Trine Villemann - two partners with equal creditability perhaps - who cares - and who remembers? She got her 15 minutes of fame and the money she wanted.
But I don't understand why you think that would determine the release of this interview and these pictures? Is the Asturias' Christmas cards each year determined by whatever Jaime Penafiel has come up with during the year? Or are the glimpses the Swedes get of their royals each December determined by whatever wild stories the German tabloids have cooked up during the year?

The kids are indeed cute; I still haven't read all the interview in today's newspaper, but some of it is rather interesting. Frederik mentions the publicity when it was revealed how old he and Joachim were before they ate with their parents. To them it was just natural and the only way they knew - and he says that if he and Joachim felt badly about it they probably wouldn't have mentioned it at all.

I may be cynical, but I can't help but wonder why now? If they want their private life to be private why have pictures like this inside their home? Could they not have done some photos at a different location? (think Willem & Maxima) As for other royals, Spanish Christmas cards are a tradition for many years, Norwegians seem to have decided on Christmas and summer photo shoots, as for the others I don't know. Is this going to be a new tradition with the crownprince couple, because once you open the door to your private life it is hard to shut it again.

The pictures are not that revealing about the interior I think; they have had pictures taken before from inside the Kancellihuset - at the table for Christian's 1st birthday. It's nice if they will start a tradition of publishing pics once or twice a year with the kids, IMO.

I must say I agree with Lena... The photos with the kids are nice, but the shot of the "teenagers-look-alike" in the garden is just screaming: "Look how happy we are, despite the rumours!"! Too forced, if you want my opinion...
