But I imagine even an intoxicated Fred wouldn't be dumb enough or crass enough to make a pass at a woman in a public place. I for one don't see anything wrong with a little light flirtation. I am sure whatever the truth is, Fred and Mary have nothing to fear within there marriage.
As far as growing up goes i have never seen an adult intoxicated male behave in a grown up fashion yet.
i agree with you.

maybe he was joking, or something like that... i don't think fred is so stupid to do this sort of things days before the christening.

what i really care is the fact that he is a member of the international olympic commitee... an athlete gettin' drunk???? i don't think so. this affects his image as the crown prince, as a husband and father of 4 kids, and as a sports lover, athlete and member of the ioc. think about that...

We are not invited says CP Frederik!

I've forgotten which was the original thread, but mod is welcome to merge:

BB reporter Trine Larsen recently intercepted CP Frederik i London, where he was attending a meeting. He was apparently asked about the UK royal wedding and said:' No we are not going to the wedding. As they say it's no shame staying away when you're not invited (Danish saying). As far as I know only the heads of state are invited.'

Muhler I don't intend to usurp your excellent job as translator. But I just picked up the new issue of BB and seized the opportunity!

Thanks Viv,

I understand there is an interview of Frederik in this weeks issue. It'll be interesting to learn what he has to say.

I must admit that I fail to see the logic in how the BRF handle invitations to this wedding.

Frederik is out partying and there is not much to say about it. He is charge of his life and his image and reputation.
You have a point, to some degree. He should be very aware of what he is doing.
However Frederik so much resemble his grandfather, Frederik IX, who also went out with the "boys" from time to time after he got married. It was generally known that they didn't always drink lemonade...
And yet he was well liked and considered folksy.
If Frederik stayed at home every night and always behaved correctly then I think the general public would find him less endearing. Simply because it's difficult to relate to someone without faults or who never make mistakes.
It's that strange pyscology whch says that people who are/behave perfectly are annoying.

As predicted BT continue with the saga, the angling has now slightly shifted, so they are now siding with Frederik. - I should like to see both Se & Hør and BT stew in Presselogen this Sunday. (Presselogen is a programme dealing with press ethics. Unfortunately the editors in chief are now getting seasoned, but it still happens that they wriggle in the "hot chair" when they get some heat. To my personal delight).

Udråbt som 'stangstiv' - vennen glatter ud - Royale - BT.dk

Frederik's very good friend, Jeppe Handwerk has made the very unusual step to call BT and explain:
Hun arbejder i mit firma, og hun er en nær ven af mig og min hustru,
- "She's working in my company and she's a close friend of me and my wife".

The woman:
, arbejder i Handwerks firma Copenhagen Group. Her arbejder den blonde pige, der blev student fra Nærum Gymnasium i 2006, som assistent i administrationen, mens hun er ved at færdiggøre sin bachelor i international virksomhedskommunikation på Copenhagen Business School.
Og som ven af Handwerk-familien har hun også mødt kronprins Frederik,

- works in Handwerk's firm, Copenhagen Group. Here the blonde girl, who graduated from Nærum Gymnasium (high school) in 2006, works as an assistant in the administration, while finishing her bachelor degree in international business communication at Copenhagen Business School. And as a friend of the Handwerk family, she has also met Crown Prince Frederik.

He will, of consideration to his employee, not say more about her.

So that's it. A non story.
- But the editors of the tabloids are nevertheless tap-dancing with joy....

I watched the clip again and showed it to hubby as well. I really don't understand why such a scandal out of nothing. I think it is more than probable that Mary was okay with the whole thing and might have actually told him he should go out with friends. Our interpretation of the video is that sure, the guy in it is clearly intoxicated but nothing really happens in the video. He seems to be greeting his friends in it. At least in Finland women tend to greet their friends by giving them a hug, especially when they are slightly intoxicated (explaining the arm around his neck). After he greets the woman he seems to be hugging his male friend and whispers (or more like 'shouts') something to him. Again, nothing sinister there. The music was probably loud. I would say he knows the two people well. As someone already said, I'd be more worried about the music in the bar. Seems they're stuck somewhere in the 1990s'...

I think that could be considered somewhat of a universal form of greeting when a lady has been a little too liberal with the spirits

Right now this behavior is in sharp contrast to the other heirs to the throne who have been or are currently on official or state visits. Now they also go on vacation or spend time with friends, but this isn't the first time CP Frederik has been reported partying into the late hours.

I hope that he finds what he is looking for soon. His nation and his family deserve better from him IMHO.
Excuse me, but aren't you mixing oranges with apples? A private evening with an official event. AFAIK Frederik never was filmed partying while on an official visit. There was a football match and he was celebrating the victory with his friends. How awful!

To me he comes across as the most sociable and accessable of the cps, with a large circle of friends and a free spirit, very kind, honest and not at all arrogant.
And I don't think that Frederik is reluctant towards the challenges and responsibilities of his life, with one exception: he seems reluctant when it comes to dealing with the media (which is of course one challenge of his life). But I don't think he (still) has a problem with his role as husband and father and heir to the throne.

So I don't see the fuss that this has caused, he's letting off a little bit of steam before the big day of christening his new babies. So what if he is 42 years old, I know men that are much much older that party like prince freddy does. As it has been said that the woman is said to be a friend of his and he was with other company.

I get the feeling that Mary isn't a big party person of getting drunk and wondering back home at 3am. what Freddy does in his personal life is that his personal life and if dumb butt people think its cool to film it and the sell it to the paps then they really need a reality check.

I don't like that the booze & blonde story is still pulling headlines today .. of all days! It's not only in the republican gutter rags, it's also in the normally more restrained tabloid BT. Like my compatriots I believe that it's basically a non-story, but somehow CP Frederik apparently got himself caught in a banal situation which could be abused by people with dubious agendas!

We'll be much wiser - perhaps! - come April 29th. However if only heads of state are invited it stinks of duty invitations dictated by protocol and because a non-invitation could result is strained diplomatic bilateral relations!

I had a feeling it would turn out like this since the announcement of the Norwegian court.
So does this mean the queen of Denmark (+Prince Henrik) are going to attend the wedding just like their Norwegian counterparts?
Honestly, I find this too much an "honour".

This part of the post has caught my attention and now I am wondering why Mr Handwerk felt the need to explain if there is really nothing suspicious in this story . Honestly , I am not sure if this is a succesfull thing to do because even if Fred didn't do anything wrong with this woman , people might start wondering why a close friend felt obliged to clear things up, when this is not usually done and if that means that something is trully wrong. It would be better IMO if he hadn't talk

i agree with you. this is making a lot of noise just because he is the crown prince of denmark... if he were a common person like us, we're not speaking 'bout this... like you said, it's his personal life, and he could do whatever he wants with it. i believe mary knew 'bout all this, and the press is makin' a storm in a glass of water... but this affects his crown prince's image(an as a husband and member of the ioc), and the anti-monarchy people knows that, so they are takin' advantage of this situation...

can someone could tell me where i could find the video? i wanna see it...

The blonde has been ID'ed: Nu står blondinen frem - Royale - BT.dk
She is Emilie Jerichau (I believe I know that name from somewhere) and she says to Starlounge:
Jeg kender Kronprinsen igennem min chef, Jeppe Handwerk, som er hans gode ven, fortæller hun til Starlounge.
- Jeg har kendt ham derigennem de sidste fire år, hvor jeg har arbejdet for Jeppe, siger Emilie Jerichau.

- "I know the Crown Prince through my boss, Jeppe Handwerk who is his good friend", she says to Starlounge.
I've known him (Frederik) through him (Handwerk) for the past four year, where I have been working for Jeppe", says Emilie Jerichau.
