If Mary was only wearing a dress, perhaps Frederik didnt have a jacket with him? They could have been out later than planned or surprised by how cold it was or whatever...
To me, its no big deal

I don't see what people are worried about. Mary is doing nothing wrong. Mary and Frederik are both there, as can be seen from the photos Paty posted. Even though they are not in the same photo frame, notice the photos are both of the same piece of road. If restauranteur Soren Jessen was closest to Mary when they all stepped into the cold night air, it would be natural to offer the Crown Princess his jacket. There is no reason to jump to odd conclusions.

Would someone be so kind to point out at the Spanish language board that Frederik and Mary are both there with Soren Jessen.
Here are both photos again, thanks to Paty.

Anyway, IMO Frederik going to Afghanistan is a lot more serious business then - what coat Mary wore - man or female - at a night in town.

ditto. many royals go, felipe etc, harry even served there. why shouldn't frederik go for a visit? he knows what army service means and it would certainly boost the troops' morale.

P.S. There are threads where you can post about your opinion of Frederik and Mary. Perhaps it would be more suitable to comment there.
As I don't want to further this negative discussion, I will leave this matter here.
Sorry to pick this up again, but I have just read this now and am deeply disappointed about it. This is a forum about royals including all facets of royal life where everyone can and should express his or her views!

I find it quite unfair so say that those who criticise Mary must not like her or even must hate her. Indeed people can be critical on someone and, at the same time, can still love or admire this person. I read the posts on Princess Mary's threat, BECAUSE I do like her, consequently meaning that I am in the right threat, if I follow your advice. But that doesn't ultimately mean that I have to LOVE everything she does or does not or whatever.

Personally, I like ALL the discussions in the royal forums. I find it quite entertaining. As long as all views are respected and are expressed in a respectful way, I have not at all any problem with them. Quite the contrary, it is important for me to read what the members have to say - positive as well as negative - as it helps me broaden my own knowledge about the royals. So I hope that we all, as members, will continue our discussions without loosing our critical eyesight and by treating everyone’s opinion fair and openly.

It might be best expressed as Soren was there with Frederik & Mary!

He should go and serve, not visit. Except, he's a Navy frogman, isn't he? And Afghanistan is a landlocked country!

Frederik's military training started in the army. He has had military training in all three services.

More information

TRH The Crown Prince Couple - Education & training

If I'm not mistaken, the newspaper headline "Kronprinsen vil i krig" means he wants to serve, not just visit. Is that correct?

As heir to the throne he won't be allowed to serve in a war zone - no country would do something like that these days. A visit would be sufficient as some of his peers did (Felipe or William). Those members of RF who served were at least second in line (Harry or Andrew). So serving there could be a new challenge for Joachim but I doubt he'd be interested.

Back on topic, are Frederik & Mary in town to watch the tennies match's? dont they attened them every year?
how interesting, TRF seemed to have (not only one, but two!) correspondants in the right place at the right time! i'm well impressed.

did anyone recognize mary appart from you? did she go by herself (and with the bodyguards)?

there wasnt a lot of people in the clothes department that mary and myself where in , but the people who where there didnt seemed to recongized her at all . she had 2 bodyguards who where standing away from her , giving her space, but Im sure if there had been trouble they would of been there straight away.
she was shopping by herself no friends or husband or lady in waiting.

OK, let's just settle for "he should at least be allowed to visit their troops".

He shouldn't serve because he would be a target. No need to put himself and the troops in any danger. He should visit though.

well, it's nice to know royals get a bit of space when they go abroad. what part were you shopping at? did she continue to any other zones appart from clothes?

I don't see any reason why he could not still serve, albeit, I would certainly not advocate his serving on the front lines, for the same reason that I did not advocate Harry openly doing it. They are high profile targets, who put not only themselves, but those around them, in danger just for being who they are. There is nothing that they can do about that, you are born who you are, and you can't change that.

Surely there must be other ways that he could serve. Although, I do understand that most soldiers want to make use of the training that they are given, he must have known that fighting on the front lines would be a very last option for him when he went through the training.

He could certainly do support work behind the lines ... somehow I think it is most unlikely - he would miss his sailing and I'm not sure Frederik has much of a track record in self-abnegation!

I am shallow, I know, but I am waiting for the pregnancy announcement so I can get to suggesting some appropriate and fabulous (according to me, anyway) names for Mary and Frederik to use...Mary is usually pregnant when she visits her family in Australia, I think because she wants to let them know personally and face-to-face...

Sounds like an awful show--similar to those we have in America--they must always find fault with people they are secretly jealous of -- mostly lies that trashy small minds want to believe -- seems to make them feel better that they themselves have such pitiful lives.
