Hard to believe it's been ten years since the wedding. I feel old!
I hope they include Ziggy in al least one of the photos also.

Yes, I cannot believe it is almost ten years since we sat up all night to see this wonderful wedding. Makes me feel old as well. So much has happened.

The Easter holiday started this weekend, that means that the schools will close until Tuesday next week.

A qualified guess will be that M&F and children have gone to Trend. Perfect timing because the weather is fine and it is expected to be even better during the next week and the trees have begun to grow leaves, so it's a beautiful time to go wandering in the forests around Trend.
Another yearly event took place this weekend, something certainly Christian and Isabella have seen before and this year I think the twins are old enough to appreciate it as well. The cows are let out on the grass for the first time after a long winter inside.
That is always a huge crowdpleaser, as you can tell in the video below.
It so happens that the very good friends of M&F, the Skeel family, have a manor, Birkelse Manor, not far from Trend and there is a lot of cattle at that manor, so I think it's a safe guess to say M&F's children have enjoyed the cows being let out in previous years.
I've omitted Joachim's children from this little tale, because I think they are pretty used to the sight of overjoyed cows.

No matter what this video should cheer you up:

Certainly looks like a fun event

This week's Billed Bladet states that Frederik and Mary and Family will be moving to Fredensborg in May.

I imagine it will be during the summer months, and I think they like being closer to nature

It's a lovely video, and I'm very happy for the cows! :) - And I'm more and more a vegetarian; it's now only bacon I'm struggling not to eat. I do love bacon.

I have always thought that cows have exceptionally beautiful eyes. And I have trouble believing the concept of "humane slaughtering" exists.

Thank you for posting the video!

You are welcome.

And yes, they are some seriously happy cows.
You will notice that the cows are undisturbed by being surrounded by hundreds sometimes up to a few thousand people and that there are hardly any barriers at all.
Nothing happens. Cows are gentle creatures and they are used to humans, so humans are just obstacles which they run around. - It's a completely different matter with bulls of course!
In my childhood it was common to see cows with bras - udder supports to be exact. The udders had simply outgrown the frame of the cows and as a consequence the poors things tended to step on their teets or being stepped on their udders by other cows when lying down. So on with the bra.
Nowadays that problem has been almost bred away and the cows have become bigger.
There were tests a few years ago with cows being issued protective clothing while standing on the field - it may come a surprise to some, but cows tan.

In the meantime the cows enjoy a good working day on the field, eating and digesting and when they feel it's time to be milked, they quietly walk back to the sheds. - Or let it be know that it's milkingtime. When we sit outside in our garden during summers we can tell if the local farmers are a bit slow. The cows know the time, so get a move on!

Fortunately cows, or rather bullocks are not the brightest animals around, so they may be confused and annoyed when going to the slaughter house and animals positively hate new rutines, but hardly scared - and then they die.
It's anotter matter with pics. They are intelligent, perceptive and have a good smell. A slaughter house for pigs is not a place to go, if you are sensitive. So the key is to kill them fast, while they are still confused and before they've figured out what goes on.

You may ask yourselves, what on earth has this to do with the DRF? Well, it's still a part of our culture and the DRF children will have got up close to farm animals and livestock and children ask questions, so this is what they would already be familar with at Christian and Bella's age. - Apart from going to a slaugher house, that's a dangerous workspace.
It is very likely I believe, that Joachim's two oldest certainly will have seen hens being decapitated. A much faster and humane way than at the slaughterhouses, where they are hung up by the feet, electrocuted and then their heads are cut off. Takes some ten seconds at most. But only after a long transport.
Out on the farms, the hen is going happily around on her business, before being picked up and she'll never even percieve it when the back of the axe knocks her out.
As long as you keep a firm hold on the legs afterwards, you won't spook any children looking on. It's when you let the headless chicken loose that you freak out children - and dogs. There is no point in doing that, so only fools and amateurs do that nowadays.

Will be lovely for them to move back to the Chancellery House - they had some happy years there. I'm sure they're happy for Frederik 8's palace as well, but the Chancellery House is located in a some lovely green surroundings for such an outdoor family as Frederik, Mary and children. I remember Mary once described the Chancellery House as: Not like a castle, but more like a big cozy house.

As I can read from the teaser it's their plan to live there in the summer period and live at Amalienborg in the winter period.

I can see there are pictures of moving vans and that the court has confirmed it, so the article is good enough.

Here are some pictures of the Chancellery House:

thank you Roskilde
I remember it from photos of their "early" years.
It looks like like a nice place where the kids can run around more openly

A very good guess. Maybe Mary's father and Susan will join them. As I understand it John and Susan lives in Aarhus.

Funny that Mary calls it a big cozy home. She is a princess. This is pretty amazing to me. Not a judgement just an observation. I guess its all in what you become accustomed to.

When they move back to Fredensborg in May, how will it work out with children's school calendar? I'm confused on where they go to school now and how far they'll have to drive.
