Luckily she has found herself amoungst friends in so many of you! - well done, as I posted earlier it is lovely to see.

Go to www.acurrentaffair.com.au there is a 'search bar' just type in Trine Villeman and then you can watch the interview; I believe she was trying (but not succeeding) to sound like she cared for Mary but at the same time blaming her for Fred not wanting to be King, quite harsh really!

Lots of love to Denmark from Australia !!! xoxos
Trine Villemann....

This is about her first book and that book was taken completely apart. I have a translation of a review of her book, should you be interested, and it wasn't pretty!

When she wrote her next book, her "reputation" was established as being not serious.
Her arguments are so easy to take apart, you wouldn't believe it.
My pet-annoyance is her talking about the Danish taxpayers. I am a Danish taxpayer, T.V. and her British husband are not. They both live in Greece and don't pay taxes to the Danish state - or the British for that matter.
She has had huge problems explaining why Mary in particular, but also Frederik, consistently score top marks in popularity and approval ratings.

Mary has been a Crown Princess for what is it? Seven years now.
I find it mindboggling that some people have such a big problem accepting that Mary is also good at her work.
- Don't worry Mary will make mistakes, of course she will, she's human. We should just be careful about not placing Mary on a pedistal. That's unfair towards her and there is only one way from a pedistal - down.

I really like the above quote and have never heard it before if it is an idiom. I will very gently correct your spelling of pedestal, however, since your english is really better than most natives!

Thank you.

I welcome corrections. How else can I learn?
(I try to avoid spell check - no sport )

Yes, putting someone on a pedestal or rather warning about putting someone on a pedestal is a common expression in DK. - Something akin to: "Easy now, don't put him/her on a pedestal".

Wouldn't you know. Billed Bladet has hit the streets again and even though it's summer, we get some coverage of the DRF.

We have a note expressing hope that we'll see the twins during M&F's summercruise in August.

An article about QMII at the national FDF camp. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1286504

A note in Stilfinderen about a summerhat worn by Mary. - Yep, we're digging deep now...

QMII and her sisters handing out a grant in commemoration of Queen Ingrid. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1286512

A coverage of the Regent Couple's visit to Greenland up until Tuesday noon. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1286527

And this:

Have a look at the link posted by Iceflower (And remember to say thanks ).

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #28, 2011.
Sjov med mor - Fun with mother.
Written by Marianne Singer.
A BB gallery: https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...toreBRnICirkus

Mary, Christian, Bella and some of their playmates recently went to the annual charity show in Circus Summarum for the benefit of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Performing were a number of popular characters from various TV shows for children.
During the intermission, Mary and her children went outside to burn off some energy. Christian, being a big boy took care of himself and entered a bouncy castle on his own. Isabella however held mother in a firm grip and dragged her into the castle. That included going down a slide twice after which Mary thought that must be enough. No way! One more time....
However the intermission was about to end and Christian was eager to watch the second half, but sister Bella was a bit slow in getting her shoes back on and an impatient Christian called for them to hurry up. - Oh, girls!!
https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...96427269622450
The second PET officer is keeping up: https://picasaweb.google.com/billedb...96534046195986

A number of other well known people and their children were there as well, and they included Chris Minh Doky and Julie Mølsgaard.

During the show, the children were treated to popcorn and lollipops.

Frederik was in Sounth Africa with the IOC.

Aww, look how cute and chubby the babies are! I bet the one Mary's holding, (Josephine?), is constantly getting her cheeks pinched.

Thanks to everyone who's provided pics and article summaries. :)

Great pictures but some of them are really zoomed in.

I found these pictures very intrusive, particularly the super zoomed in ones on the patio. It looked like a private family vacation; I don't like those kind of shots.

I don't look at the photo's taken from outside the grounds of Château de Caïx for that exact reason.

Photographers lurking around corners, in bushes and sometimes in trees. An ethically questionable way to make a living, imo.

Great pictures of the family. Oooh I certainly would pinch those cheeks in the babies. I can´t get over how tall Christian and Isabella are.
