The body guards have been known to hold one of the children's hand etc. while they are not charged with "helping to raise" the children. They help keep them safe. While on the plane, I am sure they would help Mary. It's a confined space and the threat level would be almost nill.

A family as large as Mary has I'm sure they always had the kids, esp the babies. Relatives in Aust have not had the time with the kids as the Danish side has. I am sure they trade off. nanny or not.

As to Mary and Frederik potentially bringing a nanny with them for the vacation part of their trip, does it really matter either way? I know several families who have taken a nanny with them on vacation; I imagine it would come in handy if they wanted to have an adult family dinner or were invited out to a party or something like that, not to mention making things a bit easier on the flights there and back, (especially for people like Mary and Frederik, who have to travel separately).
Why do you think they need to travel separately? Mary doesn't have rights of her own so it wouldn't make a difference if they would travel separately and she would survive a hypotetical disaster that would leave Frederik dead. It makes way more sense (and I think it's handled that way) if the king/queen of a country travels separately to a crownprince/crownprincess.

They don't need to, it's practical as Christian and Frederik need to travel separately I can't see Christian travelling without one parent at his age. So Mary goes with Christian and Frederik with Isabella.

A very large number of pictures from Billed Bladet of Mary and the children playing at the playground and later passing the public at the main gate.

Danes want Mary for top job, but the queen isn't budging | Herald Sun
Forty per cent of the more than 1000 people polled said the queen should hand over to to Crown Prince Frederik within five to 10 years; 11 per cent said the change should take place immediately.

Thank you for the pictures . Was that the family's dog we saw in the later shots? I remember reading that Mary, Frederik and the children had a dog, so I was just wondering.

As long as they choose to observe the convention that Frederik can't travel with his heir then for all practical intents and purposes they need to travel separately when they're travelling with Christian. I suppose Mary and Frederik could choose to travel together and have Christian fly back without either of them but that doesn't seem likely, (or like a very nice thing to do to a six year old)!

It is more of a practical thing. If they both fly together and something happens, you have 4 children without any parents. Better safe than sorry...

Okay, as this may cause some debate I will translate this article in full.

Translation of article in Billed Bladet #1, 2012.
I lære some jæger - Apprentice hunter.
Written by Ken Richter.

Crown Prince Frederik can look forward to having a permanent hunting buddy in the future. The new hunter is his own son - six years old Prince Christian. The little chap has in the past couple of years been allowed to sniff at what it means to be a hunter. Prince Christian has attended game parades, where his parents have told him about the dead animals.
Now Prince Christian has also tried to attend a hunt. That happened at Frijsenborg Slot (manor), near Hammel (small town), where the Crown Prince Frederik between Christmas and New Year went pheasant hunting at fief-count Bendt Wedell's.
After some quiet Christmas days at Marselisborg Slot Frederik drove early in the morning to the hunt at Frijsenborg and later in the forenoon Crown Princess Mary also drove out to the manor together with Prince Christian and Princess Isabella. Here mother and children had a cosy time with fief-count Bendt Wedell's wife Pernille and their two boys, Tido and Hannibal.
In the middle of the afternoon an excursion to the hunt was arranged, which at that time had reached a hunting-ground at a sunny field close to restaurant Pøt Mølle in Frijsenborg Forest.
Here each hunter was allocated a post, from where they could shoot the pheasants that were scared up by the clappers who makes the pheasants take off. Together with his mother, who held Isabella's hand, Christian stood close to his father and each time the Crown Prince Frederik hit a pheasant which fell to the ground, the little Prince ran all he could to the dead bird and picked it up.
One single time Prince Christian stopped at a pheasant, which he carefully poked and at once the bird woke up and flapped the wings and flew away.
After half an hour of hunting Prince Christian had picked up five-six pheasants which he proudly and with fresh red cheeks carried across the field and over to the car where the prey from the hunt was collected. Then it was back home with mother, while dad continued with the days hunt until the sun went down.

- Okay, over the years I've known Ken Richter to be a journalist who reports what he sees, no more, no less. So I believe thing happened as he decribed it in his article.
I have no qualms about hunting, I consider that a necessity. Nor do I have a problem with children attending a hunt. Children have attended hunts since we climbed down from the trees and meat don't grow in super markets.
However, I have two problems with this.
When hunting fowl each hunter is allocated a field of fire. You shoot high and as the birds are flying over you. Simply to avoid danger to the clappers and retrieving dogs in front of you and also the hunters next to you. Preferably the birds drop behind you.
I do not like it when children age six run around at a hunt, even if it's behind the firing line, in full view of the parents! You let the dogs pick up the birds or you walk yourself with your child to the bird that has dropped and pick it up together. Period!
Children that age don't think. If a bird drops in front of Frederik Christian might just as well dart out to retrieve that bird. - It only takes an eager fool or someone who accidentally discharge his shotgun on the way up, and.....
The other problem I have is with birds that are not killed outright. Most birds are stunned or preferably shock-killed at once, but in case they are not, (that happens to even the best shot) you don't leave it to a child to deal with a shot and flapping bird. A child who is a couple of years older than Christian can ring the neck of a pheasant, but not an inexperieced six years old.
I know, I know, Frederik is no worse than so many other hunters who introduce their children to hunting, but I don't think he handled this well at all.

I would need to see first hand exactly how this all played out before judging. Frederik and Mary both seem to have a good deal of common sense, and we know Mary, at least, reacts quickly when she perceives the safety of one of her children to be at risk, (I'm thinking of the much discussed Prince Henrik/Princess Isabella balcony scene from a couple of years ago). Given that, and given the inherent limitations of description involved in writing this sort of article, I'm inclined to give M and F the benefit of the doubt on this one.

I hope so. There will probably be pictures to celebrate her 40th birthday. There were some for Frederik. But then again, he is the heir.
