Thank you Iceflower. Sometimes I log in to find where you have been and where you have posted to get a chance at all you survey. You are a marvelous worker I see. Again I see another example of what is candid for one of the families we get to witness. Finally I see this Princess along with their children riding bikes merrily. Mary is so pretty. Glad you got us closer. What would this forum be without you Ice? You're appreciated. Thanks.

It's good to see Mary out and about. She's been working out too it looks like. I wouldn't have been able to leave my babies at home though...I'd want them by my side 24hrs.

Loved seeing the sign in English!

Thanks for the photos.
Lovely to see Mary out and about, and extra nice to be with Frederik and the children. It is great that they can go for a walk this without being bothered too much.

It is. An exclusive interview with Ekstra Bladet, which I will will not buy, but EB has a brief excerpt from the interview here:
Ekstra Bladet - Kronprinsen: Brn har godt af systematik

In which Frederik says about bringing up children: "Christian is being used to a degree of systematic (I.e. a particular way things are done) and that is what he being brought up for/getting used to in life in general; there sre some things about learning, which is influenced by systematic and that's why it's good they have a fixed shedule and fixed times".

Frederik find tennis training to be beneficial for Christian: "That it happened to be tennis is incidentally a bit coincidental and not as much something Christian wanted, as it is due to me always having played it myself. It's the sport I like most and itøs the sport I return to and find setteling".

About himself being more sporadic when it comes to physical training and his body changing now he is past 40: "As you get older you think you get more fat and a bit more chubby, when you look at yourself in the mirror".

Billed-Bladet - Kronprins Frederik kæmper med motivationen
In this excerpt from Billed Bladet, he elaborates: "I can feel that it takes a good deal more to motivate me. It's decisive that there is a purpose with the whole thing.
In particular in regards to weighttraining, which you should practise regularly at my age, is something I find difficult forcing myself to do. I've always thought it was dreadfully boring and it's difficult for me to drag myself into a fittness center and pull weights. In the same way that I've always thought it was sacriledge to run a threadmill. Here in Denmark you can run outside for 360 days a year. But I'll admit now that I've become a bit more sensitive to the cold".

- Welcome to the club of middle aged men, Frederik. You will for the rest of your life fight lathergy and your weight.
Sounds to me that it was more healthy for him, if they still lived at Fredensborg, where he could just step outside and run in the park.

It's logical and understandable that Mary leaves twins for a short time because although she loves them and so on she herself needs fresh air and walking outside the palace (and outside palace little garden too). Otherwise she must sit inside palace until 14th April and it would be definetely too much for a person...
But looking these photos I must admit that in Copenhagen there isn't definetely so much privacy than in Fredensborg. And yes Muhler must agree with Your opinion about healthy live and Fredensborg - in Copenhagen where they have only quite little garden and where they have no big park it would be quite complicated to go run:-)

It wouldn´t be that complicated to run for CP Frederik. He has done it before, when he lived in CPH before Mary. He says that himselg in the interview which I have read :)

I wore mine to warm up the car! It was below -30 the other night so my car was very grumpy when I tried to start her (and I forgot to plug it in:( )

I wonder if they all have a pair? They were exceptionally popular. You couldn't find them a year ago at this time! :)

Anyway it's nice to see them out and about. I can't wait to see how the twins have grown since we saw them leave the hospital!!

Thank you iceflower and Marika. Mary looks as great as she always does. Even though Frederik and Mary have newborn twins, they also take time for the older siblings, as it wouldn't surprise me that there might be a little jealousy at times from the older sibs. It happens to the best of families. I'm sure Mary was glad for the opportunity to get out in some different surroundings also.

Frederik went to a Champions Leaque soccer match in Copenhagen Tuesday evening: Frede og de kendte til bold i Parken |

Apparantly alone, according to the captions.
There are two or three pics of Frederik in this gallery.

The match was between Chelsea and FC Copenhagen. Chelsea won... and the less said about that defeat the better...

Another article from TV2, with a five pics gallery in the box. Fodbold = soccer.

BT is speculating about who will go the the christening of the twins: Ingen engelske kongelige til tvillingedåb - Royale -

And in continuation of previous articles about the British RF, and their low key representation at DRF events, the tabloid don't expect any British representative from the BRF.

- That however is hardly a surprise as this cristening is pretty low key and basically a public family occasion. I personally doubt we'll see any royals who are not also personal friends of M&F, and/or godparents.
My guess is on the Swedish and Norwegian CP couples, the Greeks and perhaps the Dutch CP couple as well.
Christian's baptism was another matter as he is the next king after Frederik and is nowadays expected to survive childhood.

The article quotes a historian, Lars Hovbakke Sørensen, who says: "The BRF has always stood out a bit in the sense that the English Queen don't take part in events outside Britain. In recent time Queen Elizabeth hasn't taken part in a Danish wedding, baptism or any other event in the DRF.
And they haven't chosen to make the baptism an official event, just as say Christian's baptism, and as such the guestlist will be dominated more by people who are not particulary high-ranking. There will for example probably not be ministers from the Danish government present either".

And from Billed Bladet we have this little story: Billed-Bladet - Frederik skal have ny motorcykel

Frederik is having a costum made motorcycle build for him.

The bike is being build in the village of Løsning outside the town of Horsens by Uffe Lauge Jensen.

Frederik has contributed with ideas and suggestions to the design, which is a pretty common thing to do for costum build bikes.
The bike will be unveiled at an exhibition in Copenhagen this weekend, at the Copenhagen Lifestyle if you wish to go there.

It's not the only bike Frederik has. He also has Ducati 916 and a Ducati 888.

- I can't recall having seen Frederik riding a bike before.

Bikes are great! We would have fewer organ donors without them...

Here's a Spanish article about the newest interview and portraits of Crown Prince Frederik:

There ain't much DRF stuff in Billed Bladet this week, but there is one article in particular which may interest you.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #08, 2011.
Her er Marys supernanny - Here is Mary's supernanny.
Written by the Ulrik Ulriksen.

M&F have employed a British nanny, Bernadette Lion, who is specially trained as a maternity-nurse.

Bernadette Lion was hired through the agency Eden Nannies & Maternity and she is an experienced nurse who has been recommended to M&F by Helle & Otto Reedtz-Thott who employed Bernadette a couple of years ago, when they had their third child.

BB contacted Eden Nannies, who said: "We can confirm that she is not a nanny but a maternity nurse and that she is well educated, as are the about 1.000 nannies we have in our cataloque. - Our product is of the highest standard and we therefore expect that those employees who represent us have a high level (of competence). Nannies and maternity nurses must be educated and have at least three years of work-experience".

Bernadette Lion will primarily focus on the twins, but she will also keep an eye on Christian and Bella.

The article does not mention when Bernadette Lion started but she was around when Shirley was committed to hospital with a cold recently.

Shriley was put in an incubator in order to help her stabilise her body temperature and also to protect her from infections. She was discharged again after a brief stay at the hospital.

Judging from the pictures in the article I'd say Bernadette is around 30.
