They have just added two little guinea pigs into the family.
I guess that Christian and Isabella have got each one. Vincent and Josephine still too small.

Guinea pigs are extremely popular among Danish children. I would almost bet that more than half of Danish children have had guinea pigs during their childhood. My daughter, for example, is a happy owner of her little guinea pig called Mille.
thank you for sharing this "news" with us non-danish speakers
now Ziggy has a little bit of company

We may have something to look forward to on the occasion of M&F's anniversary.

BB writes today that the photographer Mario Testino photographed M&F (and perhaps their children as well last year at Amalienborg.
To our reporter, Marianne Singer, testino confirms: "I have worked, not just bor the BRF but (I) also had the opportunity to photograph your Crown Prince and Crown Princess last year. The photographes are the royal documentation of our age and the history of the country".


Lene Balleby confirms that Mario Testino indeed did photograph M&F last year at Amalienborg.

Mario Testino has previously photographed Diana and W&K. There is a very warm pic of W&K in the article.

BT has an article about Mary, Christian and Bella being present at the dress rehersal for the finals of the European Song Contest which takes place saturday.

They met the Danish contestant, Basim and as you can see Bella seemed to either sing to him or just being thrilled. Whatever, she's a showgirl.

Here are two big pics:

Yes, Denmark are in is these days filled up with the Eurovision Song Contest. Singer Basim won and is our performer for the finals on Saturday night.

As planned, Mary, Christian and Isabella showed up on the red carpet today to the rehersal where Basim received them. No Frederik as he's busy these hours with an official event i Jutland, but he will be at the final on Saturday night with Mary.

Basim: "I'm excited to meet them and hear how much they have heard my song. It may well be that Mom and Dad are a little tired of hearing my song if they (Christian and Bella) have played my song again and again loudly in their rooms at home."

and I'll admit i look up the entry from Denmark for Eurovision and its indeed a catchy song

I like that Mary and Frederik are beginning to take them to concert. a great experience and a plus with going with them

I have seen Justin in concert and he is a great live singer and entertainer.
I have seen children Christian's age in concerts
all depends on the maturity of the child

I do like that his parents went with him. For one of his first concerts, Justin is a great choice

Article from TV2 where Basim told something I didn't knew: "I have met Mary and Frederik several times. Mary is the ambassador of several places where I also come, and it's always cosy."
http://tvtid.tv2.dk/2014-05-08-Grand...C3%B8dte-Basim


Video from Eb.dk where we see Mary, Christian and Bella having a chat with the Australian singer Jessica Mauboy and last year's winner Emmelie the Forest:

Nice to bring the kids to the show.
And a bit unusual to see Bella shy.

I understand that an Australian singer is going to entertain at the semifinals tonight? Australia, again I understand, have shown the European Song Contest for years. Perhaps the interest will be heightened a bit with M&F and the children there.

My personal favorite is the Polish entry. - And one of these days I'll actually listen to the song...

Thanks for the clips and vids.

The second of the semifinals are on now, and I've taken refuge in here.

What can our Australian members tell us about the singer Jessica Mauboy?
She's worth looking at but is she also worth listening to?

ADDED: We have a video about the meeting with the enchanting Jessica: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/fragment/...mauboy-denmark

Thanks for the video.

Christian really isn't a little boy anymore. I have always thought (and still do) that he has many of his mother's features, but for the first time I today think he is a total mini-Frederik. Handsome boy in his open blazer and short hair

I've noticed when Frederik and Mary have the children with them to official events it's very often them he walks in the front line, first greets the people, etc.

Also heard a English journalist saying: We are so proud of you, Mary. I guess it's a journalist from Australian.

He is a great photographer.

Testino's a brilliant photographer, I hope we'll get to see the pictures.

When did Christian become a mini-me of his father?! That boy is going to be a knockout when he's older! Can't believe he's only 10 next year.

Jessica Mauboy was runner-up on Australian Idol back in 2006. She was branded as the next Beyonce, with her R'n'B/soul like voice. She has had success in Australia, winning two Aria's (our equivalent to the Grammy's). She has a voice and it is very good.

She has also acted in several Australian movies, in which she was the star of the movie The Sapphires.

It's hard to believe she is only 24!

Thanks CrownPrincessJava

Back in 2006? She was very young!

She came across in the brief interview as a sweet girl with no airs.
Perhaps we'll hear more about her from the exposure she got yesterday.

She's also recently appeared on Sesame Street too :-)

She is a true country girl. She was born and raised in Central Australia and comes from very humble beginnings. She is a sweet girl who is constantly happy.

She was 16 when she was on Australian Idol, so she was quite young.

Jessica is also of Aboriginal heritage (her mother is Aboriginal and father is Indonesian) and does a lot for Indigenous communities in Northern Australia. She was also nominated for Young Australian Of The Year.

I hope the exposure in Eurovision helps her in Europe. She is an extremely talented artist and deserves success.
