I'm confused by your post Katelle, are you being serious or joking?

Poor pregnant Mary...
I have been pregnant and I drank a glass of wine...I do not think that is a crime.
pollution is also bad and every day I go out for work.

Exactly. If a pregnant woman drinks every single night then, yes, she is doing harm. But drinking a glass of wine, no.

Didn't PM put the rings back on again? I think I saw them on her finger in the Greek wedding photos. The pictures were not clear but definitely some rings there.

Don't be confused Lumutqueen. I guess it's a french way to say whatever she does Mary cannot win. Of course I am puzzled about how superficial people can be. The ring then, now the glass of wine she was supposed to drink even if nobody in here didn't even have the opportunity to smell or to taste what the Crownprincess was drinking.

I know lots of married women who don't wear their wedding rings or engagement rings all the time. People who think it means one thing or another really need to get a life and stop speculating. There are more useful things to do with their time.

Three Princes

Good pics of three princes and yes they all look rather dashing and might even be starting a new trend wearing short beards. Even though Prince Frederik is a little late in growing his, as Haakon has had his for a while. All three are nearing middle age and are perhaps dealing with midlife in their own individual way. Their maturity sits well with them and all look contented and happy with the way there life has turned out. Meaning all are happy within their marriages.

I have never been a fan of beards so I look forward to these three princes having a shave. They are far too young and handsome to have beards.

IIRC this is not the first time Frederik is growing a beard. He had one in 2000 (Sirius Expedition) and I have a picture in my mind with Frederik(+beard), Joachim and a relatively new princess Alexandra ~1995-97. I don't think this has anything to do with midlife (crisis).

Yes, he has grown a beard on several occasions. There is an old TRF thread Crown Prince Frederik Pictures: Part 1 where Alexandria has posted several pictures of Frederik with a beard (from post #32 and onwards)

Love love love them with beard. I think Willem Alexander would be the only one who would not look as dashing with some beard on!

Translation of article at the website of: Danmarks Naturfredningsforening = something like The Danish Nature Conservation Association.
Interview med kronprins Frederik | Danmarks Naturfredningsforening

You can read about what kind of association it in English Here: DN english | Danmarks Naturfredningsforening

In the latest issue of their magazine, which is not online yet, Frederik is interviewed about how he took Christian with him on a hunt.

Crown Prince Frederik encourage the Danes to take their children with them out in the nature. He says in an interview in Natur & Miljø (the assciation mag) that he tries to pass on he delight for the nature to his children Prince Christian and Princess Isabella:

"It's my duty! Children do not know that the nature is out there unless we adults take them away from cartoons and games and show them what nature can be used for", says Crown Prince Frederik.
The Crown Prince says that he got to learn about the nature from his father, Prince Henrik:
"His influence has been very big, because he has an extensive knowledge about the nature - a knowledge that he shared with me".
To the Crown Prince being out in the nature with the children is something quite special. Through his children he rediscover the childish delight in exploring the nature:
"I get them to smell, listen and taste the nature and I think it's absolutely fantastic to see the joy in their faces when they hold a beetle or see a deer", says Crown Prince Frederik.
Common experiences in the nature creates a certain bond between parents and children, is the opinion of the Crown Prince. That's why Crown Prince Frederik also encourage other parents or grandparents to give children and grandchildren an experience in the nature.
"I know that time is short in many families with children. But still: Take the children out with you. It's good for both the children and for yourself".

And from Starlounge we have more details from the magazine interview:
Prins Christian med til at skyde en and | MSN Starlounge

Prince Christian will turn five in October, but he has already been on his first hunt with Crown Prince Frederik. And together they shot a duck.

"He has taken part in shooting a duck, which we plucked and roasted ourselves. It tasted heavenly", says Crown Prince Frederik.

Crown Prince Frederik took Christian with him to show him where the food comes from.

"My children will as so many other children rather have spaghetti bolognese, but I insist that they learn where the food come from and not least about the pleasure of food that taste of nature. That require that they go out", says Frederik.

------------

Now, I know this is a controversial subject.
I've never hunted myself, (except wild dogs but that wasn't in DK and they were considered vermin), but I know quite a few who do.
There are if I remember correctly about 70.000 registered hunters in DK.
That means that practically everybody know at least one who hunts. As such there is no opposition against hunting worth mentioning and certainly not outside the major two or three cities.
In fact the hunting associations work closely with the conservation associations, Dansk Naturfredningsforening being probably the most influential. Programmes about hunters and hunting are shown in every graphic detail on prime time TV. Just like the slaughter of animals on hobby farms are shown on prime time.
It's not an abstract phenomenon. However many children in the cities grow up without much knowledge of the nature. A knowledge that was common until about a generation ago, where practically everyone had relatives who were farmers somewhere.
But back to the point; while there is no opposition against hunting for the sake of culling a number of animals or remove sick animals. Many, including myself, are against hunting just for the pleasure of hunting.
I have no qualms what so ever about deers or foxes being hunted, if it serves a purpose but I cannot see any purpose in breeding say pheasants only to shoot them. Such people ought to hunt with a camera instead if they want a trophy.

It is on this background and based on the general perception of hunting in Denmark that this article ought to be viewed.

I know, I know, this is text stuff, but I hope some of you read this far.

Frederick VIII's Palace will serve as the Crown Princely Family's official residence. Chancellory House shall remain as their private residence outside of Copenhagen. At least until Frederik succeeds his mother.

Didn't they also state, that it takes some more time to furnish the renovated palace as they won't take the furniture from Kancelihuset with them?

Correct.

Especially as they intend to use Kancellihuset for a part of the year.

It was pointed out somewhere in connection with the renovation of the CP palais that there were hardly any furnitures in store that they could use as furnitures in their new home.
When Queen Ingrid died, what she had of furnitures (worth keeping that is) were divided among those who inherited her.
And other furnitures are in use elsewhere, so they can hardly loot another palace. Especially as the furnitures in the other palaces belongs to the Regent Couple.

So M&F now have a busy job finding furnitures, not only for themselves but also for the new palace - and preferably in a way that suits the artwork as well as the palace itself.

The maintanaince of the palaces are funded by the state, but furnishing and day to day maintananince is at the expence of the DRF.
And M&F are actually not that well paid.

Their apanage may sound like a lot to most people, but that's until you take into consideration that it has to cover personal expences as well as salaries for their staff, staff accomodations and so on. Everything to run their little branch of the family company.
