Haha, I don't know much about it either, but I just saw one few days ago and it looked so cute that checked the internet. It looks like a bit blown-up version of the Mini

In any case, it hasn't taken very long for the Aussie media to run with the story. It's already made coverage on our morning news and is now online.

'Mary Forgotten'

Prince Frederik filmed dancing with blonde
Poor Mary

I've known him (Frederik) through him (Handwerk) for the past four year, where I have been working for Jeppe", says Emilie Jerichau.
Hmmmm I thought maybe she was a random person but since she knows him that raises questions. Poor Mary is correct:(

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.
We'll have to agree to disagree.

Uh, I think it would be worse if the woman wasn't known to Frederik.

There was clearly a group of people around him who were known to him and that suggests to me that there was nothing seedy going on. Certainly nothing which would compromise his integrity or marriage.

As for the woman in question, she'd best learn to keep her hands to herself. I don't doubt she drank a wee bit much this particular evening but then again, what an excuse it is in defense of over familiarising herself with the Crown Prince.

Still, I think it's about time Frederik realised he isn't 25 and pursued other means of relaxation away from court and family life, when needed.

I have a question, silly maybe, but I was wondering, do we know for a fact Mary wasn't with him at that club? I mean, all we saw was the video of Frederik dancing, and everyone assumed he went out by himself and Mary stayed at home, as lancchick suggested below.

I have to agree with you. I am going to give Fred the benefit of the doubt, but it does cast a pall over the events of the day.

We don't know this for a fact, but I would think since some have stepped up and said how Fred knew this woman that they would also say Mary was there if she indeed was.

Not necessaitly. Maybe Mary doesn't want to be involved in something not worth a thought?

Could be. But if she were there and came out and said so it would put all of this to rest.

I've got to chime again. My view is you're either married or you're not. If you're married, you take an obligation to support your spouse. Being out at 3:30am is not supportive. I think it's safe to assume a mother of four small children (two of whom she's likely breastfeeding) is not out at a nightclub at any time of day.

Some might think Fred's entitled to release a little stress but I look at it as completely selfish and not being a good husband. If he wanted to stay out at night partying, he perhaps should have waited to get married until that phase of life was over.

Most people reach a point in life where partying is no longer done or you wait until your kids are old enough. But, four small children and a wife at home, give me a break.

But why? Does being a mother mean she's no longer a woman? Please, women have kids and they still go out and have a little fun every now and then. That's when you call a nanny or a babysitter. And while I understand she may be still breastfeeding, she may, as well, ask the nanny to use a bottle one night. Nothing wrong with that.

And again, how do we know Mary was at home?

We don't, unless Mary says something which she won't because the Palace saying anything keeps this story alive. Mothers go out, of course. And one's with nannies go out maybe a little more. However, observing Mary for many years, she is disciplined and conscientious. Going to a club a few days before your kids are publicly baptized would be unwise in the extreme knowing you could be filmed. I highly doubt she would do it. Fred is another story.

None of us know the circumstances of Freds night out. Could be that Fred wanted to show Marys brother - John- a good time after the footy with a group of Friends. Jeppe was probably very angry about the report and thats why he rang to clear things up. All perfectly innocent.

A couple of friends of the Crown Prince and Princess have spoken to the press about this since yesterday, including now Jeppe Handwerk, with the goal of trying to get the press to not make a mountain out of a, (relative), molehill. If Mary had been there I imagine they'd mention it.

I think if Mary was there with Frederick, the topic of the discussion will be on another point of view, something like "CP couple dancing at 3am while kids left home alone..."
IMO she was home with the kids while her husband was drinking and dancing

Not necessairly. Mary may not want to be involved in something this silly, simple. The fact they did not mention she was there does not prove she was not. My point is; we simply don't know.

But the point was, it was a private club and they knew they would be able to be there without being filmed or photographed. Therefore both Mary and Fred could have been there knowing they will have fun without public knowing about it.

Well none of us really know the details but as long as he didn't you know do anything stupid I suppose I'll give him a pass this time.

Good point- was Marys brother there? Wasn't he with him earlier at the game? I highly doubt Fred would do anything inappropriate with his bro in law present....plus I am going to assume the marriage is strong enough that Mary was fine w/ Frederick having a fun night out with the boys and being a supportive husband does not mean having to be home every minutes especially if it's ok with your wife and we have no proof Mary didn't totally support a boys night out....

But I doubt she was there b/c his friend would have mentioned it for sure and that would have killed that story.....
