The Donaldson's will take care of Christian and Isabella in Denmark. I can't remember the Danish publication I read it in.

I doubt Mr. Donaldson speaks fluent Danish - he teaches in English at the Danish universities, as do a lot of professors. Once your on graduate level all (or most of depending on subject) your material is in English :-)

It would not surprise me if he is learning/learned Danish.

Yeah I think he'd at least need to have a working knowledge of it because even though he's teaching English, he's still teaching it at a Danish university where the students main language is Danish. So I would think he has to be able to communicate with them in their language. I just wondered how well he speaks/knows it. It's nice that he can spend some time near his daughter.

Crown Prince Frederik will participate in a mountain bike marathon tomorrow:
sn.dk - Sjællands Nyheder - Sjælland

He participated in this race last year, where he rode under the name Frederik Hansen. He completed the 103-kilometer race in seven hours last year, despite the cold, windy and rainy conditions. It has been confirmed that he will participate again this year, but that he will not use a false name. The race organizers offered the Crown Prince a special starting number (one that is used for the royal cars), but he insisted that he wants no special treatment whatsoever. He wants to be on equal footing with the other participants.

i like this from him not special treatment, sometimes it must be hard for him to get all this special treatment, he wants probably something normal like everybody else!

Oh yes I remember seeing the pictures from last year.
Another new surname for Frederik. I am glad he is that kind of prince, who doesn't think he is better than anyonre.

So funny I was out at Hillerod today around the gardens and kept having to wait for the bikers to pass when I was crossing roads didnt realize he was competing. Saw him later at Fredensborg (I am not stalking I love the gardens out there) he was back in the suit and tie off somewhere. Im glad he enjoys the competition though I wonder if he joined the other bikers who seemed to have some kind of meal (takeaway style) after the finish line.

Did you see Frederik during the race? Were there a lot of participants? Did you notice any of his security around?

KBear, I'm just curious: can you actually see the couple's private residence when you walk in the public gardens? How close can you get? I'm sure you can't peek into their kitchen I hope....?

I doubt she can get very close, security everywhere i imagine. I didn't even know the gardens were open when the CP couple were in residence.

You can walk up the main drive part way to view the actual castle. I think their residence is on the right as you go in you are quite close but yes there is security and in answer to an earlier question no you defintily cannot see in a window
There are public and private gardens there and part is only open at certain times if the Queen is not in residence. The main parkland I think is always open and absolutely beautiful. I didnt see Frederick during the race I think and to be honest his security seemed very discreet at the places I did see him so I probably wouldnt have noticed them anyway. I was very impressed at how unobtrusive they were at the palace and the archery nothing on the scale of british security at all.

The meaning of the sentence is 'Busy Mary works hard for the royal house"
