Frederik went to the match today of Caroline Wozniacki
http://www.bt.dk/tennis/kronprins-fr...gaaet-caroline

Another article about Frederik at Caroline's match
Ekstra Bladet - Carolines bror: Kronprinsen fik hende til at fejle

"- We are happy for all the Danes who come and cheer for Caroline. But it is clear that we are especially proud of the support from the royal family. Especially for the Crown Prince, which of course gave Caroline a scholarship already, when she was 12 years old and is very interested in tennis.

- He is very open, relaxed and unpretentious. There is a positive energy around him, says Piotr Wozniacki, who also tennis wise was in a good mood."

so nice to hear how they speak of Frederik

Frederik is obviously proud of his fellow countryman.

Here's another article:
Kronprins Frederik uddelte roser og kindkys: 'Godt gået, Caroline!' - Tennis | www.bt.dk

Frederik also told that today was the last day and that he will travel home here tonight.

She's probably enjoyed yesterday with her husband and then flown back to the children this morning. It's the children's last day in school before the holiday. Remember, the flying time between London and Copenhagen is only one hour

I guess we can put this here: Overfaldsalarm på Amalienborg: Politiet tilkaldt | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

Sunday afternoon an assault alarm went of at Frederik VIII's mansion at Amalienborg. That is the home of M&F.
Fortunately it turned out to be a technical malfunction.
Just to make it clear: the alarm in question is nor a burglar/perimeter or intruder alarm, but an alarm used when a person is under or is in imminent danger of a personal attack.

As you can tell from the picture, police and guards were out in force.

UPDATE: There were around 100 tourists present when the alarm went off and they wittnessed the leader of the guards (presumably an NCO or the civilian custodian in charge of Amalienborg. What we in DK call a rådhusbetjent) enter the mansion with eight police officers. (Equivalent to one of the heavier armed and equipped police response patrols).
Three other police patrols were also on the scene.
After having secured the place it was determined after ten minutes that it was a malfunction.

We will hopefully never know.

I can't help wondering whether this was a realistic drill.
On a quiet uneventful Sunday afternoon, with the DRF (probably) safely out of the way at Fredensborg and no employees to spooke.
An assault alarm usually don't go off unless someone press something, in contrast to sensors which go off all the time.
If that's the case, fine. There is no such thing as "enough drills".

How scary. Mulher, is this an alarm to protect the royals in the house specifically of any intruders who may break in to attempt against them (as opposed to their possessions) rather than an alarm in case someone has an emergency (heart attack for example)?

The wording is "overfaldsalarm" = an alarm you carry on your person or that is close by and which you press when you are physically threatned or under attack.
I imagine the DRF have several such alarms placed descreetly in their homes.

There are basically three entrances to the individual mansions at Amalienborg. A primary and secondary gate, and when the DRF are in residence a sentry is placed in front of each of them.
Then there is the garden entrance. However the gardens have been covered by sensors for many years.
A (foreign) burglar scaled a garden wall at Amalienborg some 25 years ago, apparantly without knowing what the buildings was. He found himself litterally under several hundred kilos of guardsmen within minutes.

Also many years ago, there were a couple of instances where the guards fired warningshots at Fredensborg. (That was even before the guardsmen were issued radios). It never became clear what that was about.

I can imagine they will start a week or two in a cottage in Tisvilde. Then maybe a week or two to a location abroad. And finally, maybe some days in Gråsten. The first week of August the family will go to Greenland with Dannebrog on an official family visit.
yes it seems like they have the next 3-4 weeks off..they have had a busy spring and winter..i wish them a good summer holiday..even though its gonna be a little weird not to follow them almost on a daily basis:-)

and hope the press leave them alone..

Talk about being a folksy Crown Prince Couple 'down with the people'

Frederik and Mary has just been seen arriving hand in hand at the Roskilde Festival in a tourist bus. They have Jeppe and Birgitte Handwerk with them.

Can see on Facebook that the Danes think it's too cool. This is definitely one of the reasons why this couple has such a big popularity:

It's Mary's first time at Roskilde, and she told: "Now I have just arrived, but I think there's a fantastic atmosphere and I'm excited to experience it all."

Frederik told: "We are gonna to see the Rolling Stones, that's for sure!"

now that is a good looking man
http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...stival2014.jpg

how cool that they can go about so normal.
and wait they arrived on a tourist bus? lol

hope they have a great time.

Mary gave a short interview as well
"She is looking forward to experiencing the legends Rolling Stones, whom she last saw battle 16 years ago.

- I am insanely much to hear them again. I heard them play in Melbourne in 1998, so it was many years ago. If they can do that then it will be good enough impressive, said expectantly. "

15-20 degrees C in the afternoon.

Though the weekend will see temperatures soar to 28 degrees (and we'll apparantly get a lot of rainfall at the same time. Highly unusual for Denmark with warmth and rain).

Mary took the jacket off after their arrival and had just a waistcoat on.
But common sense to take a jacket along. Yesterday was a chilly day and evening. But today should be warm and sunny. This is how the Danish summer weather is

Here are many delightful pictures from their day at Roskilde Festival

Looks like they had a blast and were fresh on giving interviews and greet people.
