No, it was indeed a new low for TV2. Among things they got wrong was about the christening of Princess Estelle, where they said "The Swedish Crown Prince Couple" and later on when showing the Husars they said "The Royal Lifeguard". How hard can it be to get these things right? It´s not a liveshow

Even though it covered all major royal events, like QEII's jubilee and the wedding in Luxembourg, it wasn't as informative as DR1's coverage.
Ulla Terkelsen had some good inputs as always.

Yes, Annemette Krakau basically pointed out that Mary is now so well established in her work that she is now focusing not only on being a good representative for DK but also on how she can genuinely make a difference. Hence her recent commitment in Africa.

I knew it I found TV2's "The year in the Danish royal family" a lot better a few years back.

But I'm happy to hear that TV2 apparently had a good coverage of all Frederik and Mary's official travels during the year. I missed some focus on them in the program on DR1.

However, I would like to see the program from TV2. Do you think I can find it online?

I agree, the quality of TV2's program was bad (but then again, one shouldn't expect much from that channel, these last couple of years have been a downwards slide for them ), I have always preferred DR's programs about the royal family - especially whenever they include Anna von Lowzow, she's just excellent. Haven't actually seen DR's program yet, but am planning to watch it online one of these days.

TV2 Sputnik, but you have to pay for it.
However, I'd be extremely surprised if they don't re-run it before New Year.

While waiting for the Crown Prince family's Christmas card this year, I have found all their Christmas cards from 2004 to now. The Christmas card from 2009 is simply amazing IMO!

Thanks to StyleofMary

2004 (and the only card without children. Frederik and Mary have not been bored)

I love the one from 2011, I just wish they had included all of Josephine in the picture, it still bothers me that she's only "half there" so to speak. The one from 2010 is adorable too

Thank you for posting all of them Roskilde

i think I like 2010 the best, mostly because at this point they know the twins are coming.

but 2006 and 2009 are great too.

its nice that they include Ziggy too

They make one beautiful family. I think it's just beautiful to see a family growing and full of love.

I thought that their Christmas card would have been out by now. It's usually on the front page of BB, which is out every Thursday, no?

I think the one from 2011 is a really bad picture,I don't understand why anyone would pick it for a Christmas card. Josephine is half cut off and all four of them don't look too happy (Christian and Isabella stressed and the twins grumpy). I also don't like black/white photography when it comes off as "grey".
They had a wonderful family picture released in November 2011. I would have re-used that for the Christmas card.

I like 2005, 2008 and 2010 best. Those pictures radiate love and joy.

Thank you Roskilde, it brings back memories seeing the older cards. Looking forward to this years card of all six of them plus one --being Ziggy the dog who is very much a part of the family. I think Christian & Isabella are lucky to have such cute little playmates. Who needs toys when you've got these two to play with.

Merry Christmas

Thank you Roskilde for going to the trouble of compiling the Christmas cards. They are beautiful! And to Muhler for your efforts.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas. I have popped in throughout the year but life here has been hectic and don't get time to add anything meaningful to the threads.

A very cloudy, rainy, humid day here in our part of Australia. Hope you all have a happy day.

Yes, it´s summer. They will move around the 16th of April :)

Just like the Regent Couple :)

I can imagine that Fredensborg is about 35-45 minutes away from Amalienborg (our summer house in Tisvildeleje is somewhat further away from Fredensborg and it takes us approximately 50-60 minutes to drive there). I'm sure that Christian will be driven from Fredensborg to Tranegårdskolen every morning which means he'll have to leave about 15-20 minutes earlier than normal, but it'll be manageable. I suspect Bella might have stopped in her kindergarden by then (seeing as she'll start school after the summer break). The summer break starts on 29 June.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #52, 2012.
Tilbage til Kancellihuset - Back to Kancellihuset.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

Around QMII's birthday on 16th April next year M&F will move in at Kancellihuset for the summer.
That is hardly surprising as that has been the plan since they moved in at Amalienborg.
There are considerable advantages with living in Fredensborg, epsecially for the children.
First and foremost it's a lovely place, where Mary previously has been observed running in the park almost daily.
But the children will be able to just run out the door and out into the garden whenever they want to. As it is now, a trip to a nearby playground or just cycling has to be arranged beforehand. Because the nannies first and foremost deal with the twins and only when they are taken care of, can they take Christian and Isabella somewhere. And PET also needs to be notified in advance.

Kancellihuset is large, 700 square meters and the family live on the ground floor. All that is required are some beds for the twins and a few furnitures here and there before the family can move in for the summer.

Isabella will also start in preschool/0. grade in August next year, so both she and Christian will be driven a fair distance every day. (Presumably M&F will drop them off on the way to the office at Amalienborg).
The twins will aparently start in the nursery at Dronning Louises Asyl, near Fredensborg, where Christian also went. (See the Fredensborg thread).

May I ask if such a move to The Chancellery House for a period at around the same time as QM the start of a gradual progression to align the Crown Prince Couple's residence with that of the Queen?

Is the advantage that it is in a more relaxed setting for the warmer months? Or is it purely tradition that dictates the movement from one residence to another?

Thank you in advance for any insights.

I think you are right on both accounts.
There have for the past few years been very distinct signs that M&F are now in earnest standing in for the Regent Couple.
The twins don't require that much attention now and M&F have now established their own court and last but not least, Mary in particular is now so seasoned that should QMII die tomorrow, M&F will be able to take over without much difficulty.

Moving from residence to residence over the year is an ancient tradition. Beforehand kings had to constantly be on the move in order to run the realm. Later on this has evolved into the DRF maintaining their affilliation with various parts of the country simply be being physically present - and believe me, that means a lot!
It would be equivalent to say the US President living in Washington, California, Iowa and Texas throughout his term in office simply to lessen the distance between the people and the central administration on the East Coast.
That is the case here in DK. During the period of Absolutism (1660's-1849) the kings were rarely seen outside Copenhagen and as such Copenhagen became the only place where anything happened and the bonds between the people and the kings became somewhat loose.

Thank you Muhler. History is such an interesting topic. You present it well. I am assuming that when the twins start kindergarten at some stage they will attend the same one Christian and Bella when they were at The Chancellery House?

Mary in particular seems to have settled into her role as Crown Princess and as you say they are in training for the roles of King and Queen. For Frederik this has been his destiny but for Mary to seem so confident and regal now is lovely to see.
