I'll await official confirmation on this one. But, if it's true, congratulations to the family!

I don't believe it, and I hope not. A large family is fine, but this would be too many children in so short a time, IMO. It would mean five children seven and under. I think that is too much stress for a couple, even one with loads of help. They are most likely just coming up for air after the birth of twins, who are only a year and a half old.

Frankly, I have noticed that Mary and Fred are looking happier and more relaxed lately. I think it's because the babies are now getting older.

While it's fun to see a large family just looking in, it's not as fun on the inside.

Sorry but she's not expected baby No.5 until the court tells us she is. A moderator will come and remind us that pregnancy talk until confirmed should not be discussed so I suggest we leave this well alone :)

I buy and read Billed Bladet every week and I can't recall that headline or something similar in BB.
BB did indeed write about M&F's anniversary in BB #21, while they were in Korea, but there is no such headline, nor is there any mentioning of M&F being ready for a fifth child. There are several pics of Frederik having his arm around Mary but there is no text saying that he is holding her in a protective manner.
I've just checked.

The quotes mentioned in the Australian article do not exist in the magazine!

Apparantly they must have... misunderstood.... something.

I saw this myself when I walked past the magazine shelf in the supermarket today. Believe me, these Australian mags are notorious for making a story out of literally nothing. I now know whenever I see a headline line like this it's guaranteed not to be true . Honestly I don't know how they get away with it.

This is the same magazine that ran an article in early January 2006 - less than three months after Christian was born - saying Mary was pregnant again I think it best if we simply ignore the Australian, and other, tabloid magazines.

As such, let's wait for an official announcement from the court before discussing this further.

I think I remember Princess mary saying that she is fine with these four children so I think that she didn't want more children...

And wouldn't you know.

I wrote a comment to this article, basically repeating my post above, and now more than 24 hours it hasn't been published yet. - I guess it wasnt considered relevant....

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #24, 2012.
Pers perfekte fest - Per's perfect party.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

M&F's former chief of court turned 70 recently and he borrowed the manor of Christiansholm, owned by his (and the DRF) good friend Fritz Schur. So there was plenty of room for the guests, who included of a good deal of the cultural icons here in DK.
M&F were special guests.

The party started around 18.30 and ended around 03.00.
Among the guests were Mary's hairdresser, Søren Hedegaard and his spouse. Søren Hedegaard had been busy tending Mary's hair and as such arrived just ahead of M&F.
Our Marie's stylist Dennis Knudsen (*) was there as well. And so was Caroline Heering and Tanja Doky with husband. Tanja Doky wore a dress from Heartmade.

Per Thornit was in many ways Frederik and Joachim's reserve-father and he is especially close to Frederik. He was also Mary's mentor during the first years, as such the atmosphere was very relaxed.
So relaxed that Frederik discreetly kept an eye on the soccer match between Denmark and Holland, which had just started when M&F arrived.
During the dinner Frederik could inform the other guests that Denmark had won and that called for a toast and a big cheer.

There was various entertainment during the evening, including a song by Per Thornit's son and daughter-in-law, something that moved him deeply.
Per Thornit had requested that there would otherwise be no speeches and no songs, so he was spared that ordeal....

Midnight, Per Thornit went from 69 to 70 and he was toasted with champagne and then it was time for dancing until the night snack was served at 02.00.

(*) Dennis Knudsen is seriously loaded! In case any guy reading this should be interested.

As always, thank you Muhler . Your summaries are very much appreciated. It sounded like everyone had a blast at the party. Loved reading about how informal and comfortable everyone seemed around each other, and that Frederik was keeping tabs on the football match (and that the victory was celebrated by a toast ). It's great when relationships between royals and their staff turn into friendship. Shows a very high level of trust from both parties.

TV2 online news, Kronprinsen: Slut med at undskylde - TV 2 Nyhederne, has an interesting extract from an interview with crown prince Frederik which will be in the August edition of the magazine Euroman.


In the August edition of the Euroman magazine, crown prince Frederik tells how the turning point in his life was his completion of the demanding 'frogman training' [the Danish equivalent of the navy seals] where physique and mentality were the only things that mattered.

The crown prince pulled through it all and decided that he would no longer apologise for his being a prince and the future king of Denmark.

"When I finally finished the frogman corps, I was thinking: H*** no, I'm not going to apologise anymore," he says to the magazine.
"For way too long, I've been thinking about people's opinion about me. I'm no longer willing to apologise that I'm a prince and that I have a number of privileges. Now, I've really pitched into this; now I've done this."

Holding my head higher
The crown prince has made it to the cover, and he is featured in the magazine on 14 pages.
"The first 6 to 12 months people told me that I was holding my head higher and had a sharper aura when I entered a room, also as a civilian," he says.
"That training was the turning point for med. It meant that I could finally compare myself to others knowing that I had not had it handed to me on a plate."

Wants to make a difference
The profile shows a man at peace with himself; someone who - as previously said by the crown prince - as a young man found it very difficult to accept his role as the future king of Denmark.
Today, he has come to terms with his fate and he wants to make a difference when he meets people.
"I should like to be remembered as someone who made a difference when I meet people," he says in the interview.

Missed his parents' presence
During four talks with journalist Anne Sofie Kragh from May 2011 till May 2012, Frederik says that as a boy he missed his parents' presence and confidence.

He was 11, when he realised that he would be king some day. At an Easter lunch at Marselisborg, the queen told his son that his younger brother Joachim would inherit Schackenborg and Frederik would inherit the country.

Most help and confidence was not to be found from his parents but from his maternal grandmother, queen Ingrid.
His answer to the question of which advice he would give if he met himself as a 13 year old is:
"Be proud of who you are. I was not told that enough at the time."

Mary has been seen in downtown Copenhagen shopping clothes for children.

Mary shoppede børnetøj på Strøget - Royale |

BT reports that Mary was on bicycle with with a PET officer, also on two wheels. When she came to a store Zara, she asked the officer if he was ok with her popping inside. No problem. (*)
Mary browsed the children's department and looked at a denim dress. She didn't buy anything however.

She has been known to shop in H&M at least twice.

(*) It may sound a bit odd that Mary should ask her PET officer for permission before entering a store. PET prefer to be informed in advance where those they protect would like to go and that can hardly surprise anyone. Mary was escorted by one officer, so she did the curteous and polite thing, asked, just in case he would consider Zara a security issue. Obviously he didn't.

Is that what a mall in Denmark looks like? That place looks huge!
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

Oh, it isn't a mall. This department of Zara is located at Strøget = the main pedestrian area in central Copenhagen and as such they build up. It's simply a multi-storey department store.
Larger shopping malls are quite common here in DK.

Browsing through BB we haven't seen much of M&F in the last couple of weeks.

A Swedish tourist, Anna Magneteg, got a picture of Mary on a cycle crossing Amalienborg square. That has already been covered on this forum but a little detail I noticed in the picture is that the guardsmen posted on the square present arms because Mary is there. - They are in mutual radio contact and perhaps a tourist or two may have wondered why the sentries suddenly presented arms.
