It isn't, Ricarda

But in order to explain and also to answer your previous question I think it's necessary to go back to actual article: Ekstra Bladet - Dinesen: Jeg kan bringe monarkiet i fare

Ekstra Bladet is a republican newspaper. It is very critical towards the DRF, which is fair enough and sometimes needed in order to get a different perspective.
The problem is that EB has gone over the top, so to speak, in regards to that critisism. Not least because the majority of the most critical articles are written by Jan Körner, and he rarely misses an opportunity to lash out against the DRF, also in regards to topics that has only a limited relevance for the DRF.
On top of that he angles his articles and leave out important info, which means that his articles are unreliable and as such EB's coverage of the DRF has become unreliable. Because the agendy is clealy to discredit the DRF, not merely being critical. - To an extent in fact that even EB's own readers feel it's too much and say so. And since those who comment on EB are very much comparable to those who comment on Daily Mail, that says something IMO!
(That may also explain why there is no comments section to this article).

I this case Jan Körner use a statement from a person on trial for fraud to again lash out against the DRF, even though members of the DRF are only among those people within the Danish circles of politicians, celebs, jetsetters and so on, he claims he has embarrassing knowledge about.

I will post the last part of the article here in Danish as well as the translation, to give you an idea of the typical tactics used by the reporter Jan Körner:

Med kongehuset må Dinesen hentyde til mørke hemmeligheder om kronprins Frederik, som er den af de kongelige, der frekventerede natklubben flittigst, mens Joachim mest holdt sig til provinsdiskoteker.
Så tronfølgeren sidder formentlig på Amalienborg og glæder sig i sit stille sind over, at hans hemmeligheder er sikre hos den bedragerisigtede Dinesen.

- With the DRF, Dinesen must refer to dark secrets about Crown Prince Frederik, who is the one among the royals who most often frequented the night club, while Joachim mostly went to provincial discotheques. (*)
So the heir to the throne is probably sitting at Amalienborg and is quietly delighted that his secrets are safe with Dinesen who is charged with fraud.

(*) And a little advise. Never ever use the words "provincial" or "province" about the rest of Denmark, should you ever venture outside Copenhagen.
That's the equivalent of calling Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians etcetera "colonials".

Smart tactics: With articles like this, they don't actually need to have anything....

It's possible, that they have footage of Frederik having a few drinks or dancing. Or they might not have anything at all, but they don't really need to, do they?....Articles like this get a life of their own: There will be lots of people who are negative to the DRF and/or Frederik and Mary in particular, who will now be convinced, that Frederik has done this and that and all sorts of horrible things.

I bet, if EB printed an article, where they claimed, that Mary was in fact born a man, and had a sexchange operation, it would become a fact, if printed regularly two-three times a year...

Years and years ago, there was an article somewhere, where a S&H reporter was asked what their "dream" story/scoop would be. His answer was, that one would be, that Mary and Frederik were caught in the street, outside a disco in Skagen (or anywhere), arguing about something. This never happend, but I have seen this "dream story" referred to, as if it actually happend.

Thank you for the translation, Muhler.
I love the phrase "Dinesen must refer". So Dinesen didn't even tell them who he is referring to?
Sorry, but Joachim and both his wives have been seen partying in Copenhagen often enough. This "province" argument doesn't hold. (Not saying they have any dark secrets.)

So you think this is just EB's usual routine and has nothing to do with the current ongoings in the Danish media landscape?

I would say so, because no other media I'm aware of has bothered to write about this.

Okay, I think we owe the non-Danes members to mentioning that this article really hasn't been a big deal in DK. Danish members are welcome to correct me... but it was an article at eb.dk... and nothing more. It hasn't been spread to any other media and I actually think most Danes have forgotten about it. The comments below the article was shaking head over Mads Dinesen. This article has been blown up into something much bigger in this conversation

It's definitely an anniversary gift from Frederik - when the reporter asked, Mary smiled and said "maybe".
I'll just take that as a yes

So do I. Mary's smiling "It could very well be" is certainly the same as a 'yes'

The bracelet is composed of small medallions with pictures of Christian, Bella, Vincent and Josephine and F&M's joint monogram. The bracelet is designed by Danish goldsmith Ragnar R. Jørgensen.

Maybe Muhler can tell more from BB.

Thanks MaggieDenmaek! So pretty!! I must say that's not the most flattering picture of Mary's wrist but the bracelet is very pretty!!! There's something about silhouettes that is so romantic and traditional. Well-done Prince Frederick!! I wonder what Mary's gift to him was!

It has taken me all this time, due to the fact that it is impossible not to look at her sweet face that in the family photo Josephine appears to be wearing the same pretty little dress that she wore at the family photo shoot last year.

To me the bracelet rather looks like one of Queen Margrethe's designs. I wonder if she had a hand in it?

It's actually a pretty good suggestion. You know, a little help from mother is always useful when it comes to jewelry. A thoughtful gift from Frederik.

This isn't directly about M&F and yet.

I've often written that DK use Mary a lot in promoting Danish products, not least to Australia.
However, it goes the other way. There is no doubt whatsoever that Danish/Australian interaction in all sorts of ways, has increased very considerably within the past ten years.
I'm not only talking about trade. The Danish export to Australia has certainly gone up! And to a lesser degree the other way around. (I haven't got the figures, but they are available on the Net).
It is difficult not to contribute at least of large part of that noticable increase in Australian-Danish relations, in comparison to other European countries (UK excluded of course), to the increased mutual awareness that resulted from the M&F wedding.

Here are two typical examples:

Zoos kæmper for tasmanske djævle uden klamme kræftsvulster | Videnskab.dk
The first is from Copenhagen Zoo. You may recalled that the zoo recieved Tasmanian Devils as a wedding present to M&F. They died and were replaced by other who have now had offspring, which has delighted the Australian counterpart, because there is an ongoing cancer epedemic among wild Devils, killing them off en masse.
It's Australia alone that decide where Tasmanian Devils can end up and Copenhagen Zoo is the only zoo outside Australia involved in the breeding programme aimed at restoring the stock of Tasmanian Devils.
- I think it's unlikely a Danish zoo would have been involved had it not been for M&F.

"Skruelåget er kommet for at blive" - Mad & Vin - Livsstil
Australian wines were among the first Australian product after the wedding to be genuinely noticed on the supermarket shelves. (They taste fine BTW, thank you very much!)
Here a sampling of Australian wines is being tested.
Other Australian products have quitely found their way to the shelves. Not so much agricultural products though.
And I'm afraid Vegemite has not gained a foothold here either. Haven't tasted it myself, but I was vehemently warned against trying...

On other leves there has been a very significant increase in mutual exchange and co-operation. Not least within reseach, but the universities have also seen a very marked increase of Australian exchange students.
- Again, DK may not have been a particular interesting choice for Australian students had it not been for awareness of M&F.

There is a constant, steady trickle of such articles like those above in the media.

The word Australia carried no negative connotations before Mary, and after Mary, as Australia's living and permanent high profile ambassador in DK, that brand, Australia, has simply become more positive in the eyes of the average Dane and Danish consumer.

- But what does my fellow Danes say? - Am I completely off the mark here? Or have you noticed something similar?

Mary betrayed as Fred caught out! : Woman's Day

I can easily believe the part of the story Fred clubbing, he's the type of person who will be partying, letting off steam etc when he wants, what I dont believe is that Mary is emarrassed or in tears about it, she will know by know who she married. Fred is not and will never be the type of man who can be put on a short leash by anyone, wife, children or position. Mary will have learned a long time ago that she will have to put up with Fred doing what he wants in that respect.

"Short leash"? "Put up with"
Strange use of words. How do you know, that she "puts up with" anything?
What if she thinks it's perfectly normal, that the man goes out clubbing, partying once in a while with friends?

Like Mary herself said years ago: "Married but not joined by the hip"

Well why don't we start dissecting words into syllables and delve into the meaning of prefixes only because we don't like what another person posts.

I believe every married-in commoner will put up with anything it takes to remain in the comfort they have chosen to become adjusted to.

I would like to see the photos taken, but they are not online, at least not yet.

Mary knows by now that Fred is a hard person to live with, over the years we have seen Fred act out when he gets bored/antsy or whatever. She might get upset but it's not going to change Fred at all, she will just accept this in him and go on with her life and care for the children. After all someday she will be Queen Consort(?) of Denmark and that is something she will never give up.......mostly with Christian the heir.

So very true.....regardless of what goes on in that marriage, Mary is one very strong determined woman who knows her own mind and what she wants.

Fascinating article, but eeh, what frenzy?

I had a look at the main gossip mags:
Se & Hør - SE og HØR - Nothing, no frenzy either.
Kig Ind - KIG IND - Mode, glam og gossip. Til DIG fra Hollywood! - Nothing. The only frenzy is about Kim Kardashian.
Her og Nu - Nyheder og billeder om de kendte og kongelige - No, nothing.
Billed Bladet - Billed Bladet - No, main story is a gallery of Frederik on his birthday.
Royalista (DK) - Royalista - Alt, hvad du behøver om kongelige - Nothing.
BT - Nothing, it's all about the remarkable election yesterday.
Even Ekstra Bladet which is first to critizise Frederik has nothing.

- So could Women's Day have misunderstood something? Perhaps even made things up?
In any case, it happens that married people go to nightclubs with friends and leave the husband/wife at home.

Yep, I agree. It's just the reality of things.
