Thanks Florencia

Jim Lyngvild? Then this book will be positive towards Mary and probably written in a funny and slightly cheeky way and you can be sure her style is well covered.
Jim Lyngvild is 110 % gay and he knows a thing or two about style. I like him because he's not afraid of saying things outright.

ADDED: It will be published in October and it will NOT cost 240 UK Pounds - It will cost 240 DKK = 45 $ = 32 € = 28 £.

What's that?!? A 2CV tractor?

Judging from Christian's expression, it's a cool ride.

I doubt that. You can see more of the contents of this book on page 3 of this PDF file: http://www.politikensforlag.dk/uploa...log_3_2011.pdf

I suggest you mail Politiken's publishing house on this address: info@jppol.dk
And ask, or request an English edition.
If enough of you write, it may be published in English.

Thanks for the additional pictures.

I hope BB has a photoshot that include the twins & a photos from throughout the holiday.

Billed Bladet #29 is out and there are basically three DRF stories this week.

The Regent Couple in Greenland. It's my impression there isn't much interest in that, so a summary can wait a few days.

Felix will turn nine tomorrow and the photographer Steen Brogaard has made a photoseries of him on the roof of Amalienborg. An article has been written as a fill-story. I'll write a brief summary about that.

The Q&A is interesting this week. One question is about the present Duke of Edinburg, Prince Phillip and his affilliation to DK and the DRF.
Something about the DRF museum.
And a what if M&F couldn't have children? Would their adopted child become a monarch? - No.

And then we have the coverage of M&F at Chateau Cayx.
BB does not show any pics of the family on the terrace and nor any pics of the twins in the magazine. There are some good pics of Mary and Frederik dressed up and entering a restaurant.

Summary of two articles in Billed Bladet #29, 2011.
Mary og Frederiks romantiske aften - Mary and Frederik's romantic evening.
and
Far og søn på herretur - Father and son on a boy's outing.
Both written by our man in France Ulrik Ulriksen.

This covers the first part of M&F's summer holiday in France at Chateau de Cayx, neah Cahors.
With them went Bigitte and Jeppe Handwerk and their two daughters and Hamish Campbell and his wife Genevieve Taubmann (*) and their son.
At some point John Donaldson and Susan Moody joined them as well.
The daily routine started in the morning with someone picking up bread at a local baker. Breakfast was eaten inside or on the terrace.
As the temperature soared to 29 degrees C during forenoon, they all went to the swimming pool for some refreshing fun in the water for a couple of hours. (**) Then retreating as the French version of the siesta started.
The twins were hardly observed at all and they were mostly kept in the shades anyway.However they were "walked", either by their parents or their nanny. The twins were carried in straps on the chest, with their faces facing front.
Even though relaxation was the main thing on the agenda, Mary ran in the nearby hills in the mornings. And they were seen strolling along the paths and lanes around the chateau and the fields.

At some point John Donaldson and Susan Moody joined the party for a lunch on the terrace. The couple was observed supplying themselves with wine and other necessities from the chateau-store (***)
Frederik and Hamish Campbell too were also seen picking up wine from the store several times. (****)
In the afternoon it was time for play and also for driving the children around the grounds on a utillity vehicle. One of these trips was with Frederik and Christian alone on a little outing just for the guys, ending up with them inspecting the not yeat ripe grapes on the fields.

The weather was varied in southern France, with overcast, sun a drizzle here and there (*****) but when the children had been put in bed in the evening it was time for the adults to enjoy themselves.
And that means dining at one of the local restaurants. Apart from being described as located near the town of Luzech, the precise location and name of the restaurant is not mentioned.
Our reporter must have been tripping with impatience, however. He managed to ascertain that M&F had booked a table at 20.00 - but they didn't show up... There they are! Half an hour late and in a good mood. Accompanied by Hamish and Genevieve and an anonymous gentleman. (******) Here they enjoyed a cuisine extraordinaire consisting of many courses and a light dessert and a wee glass of wine or three.
They returned to Cayx late in the evening.
It's not the first time M&F go to this restaurant. Among others they were seen there in 2005.
When they didn't dine out the chef at the chateau cooked for them.

(*) Genevieve Taubmann is a longhaired brunette who is build slightly more solid than Mary.

(**) It's not the first time our indomitable reporter has spent an entire day outside watching (and not least scanning with his ears) and describing everything the DRF happended to be doing.

(***) Located just east of the chateau, right next to the road along the river.

(****) Perhaps the store doubles as a wine cellar? I can hardly imagine papa Henrik declaring a wine cellar on the chateau off limits.

(*****) Anyone who has been glancing at Tour de France will know how it has been.

(******) I shall refrain from attempting to describe Mary's outfit in too many details. Ulrik Ulriksen is a man so he hasn't written much about her outfit either. - It's genetically speaking an insurmountable task for men.
She was wearing a dress, purpleish, I think and green shoes and she carried a red shawl. And Dulong earrings IRRC. (I'm pretty proud of myself for noticing that one ).

Thanks for correcting the price. 240 UK pound was way too much. If this book is published in English I'll definitely buy it.

Does the author have inside information about Mary?

Not really.
Jim Lyngvild will no doubt be known to Mary and probably Frederik as well, but I don't think he even belongs to their outer circle of friends. - Perhaps Mary's hairdresser knows him better, as they sort of are in a similar line of business.
I don't think we should expect big revelations in this book. It'll hardly be an in-depth portrait book, let alone a serious biography.
It's my impression the book looks at Mary, especially her style, her class, her charisma and how she has adapted to and grown into her role, from the outside.
I doubt it can be compared to the portrait book of Frederik, published a few years ago, or the more recent portrait of Prince Henrik.

Jmi Lyngvild is very qualified to talk about fashion and dresses and what is in in DK at the moment.
For those who are mainly interested in Mary as a style icon, her appearance and the way she act on the job and not so much in the specific details of the many duties she is involved in, not least behind the scenes, I think this book will be entertaining reading and a nice reference. - Just a qualified guess, I know.

The book being published in October is no coincidence. It's just in time for Christmas.

I am just wondering what else there is to look forward to (in terms of Royal watching) with M&F now!? They have 4 kids, 2 of which are twins, which is probably quite enough, so no more name speculating...All we can look forward to is Mary fashion watching, watching the kids growing up, going to school, Mary's 40th, Fred's 50th, and other major birthdays, the coronation, etc...

So, maybe not the place to ask: but when are Joachim & Marie going to have another baby? To satisfy my name speculating compulsion

What marvelousl pictures those of Pure People. The chateau is set in such a beautiful region and the vinyards are an added plus. I think the baby in the first photo is Josephine (it has a dress on). In another photo where the nany is near the road sign, one is wearing jeans, so I guess it owould be the little boy.
