The hands are the worst yes. But we Danes bikes around in all weathers. Rain, snow and wind. Not that we like it, but we do it I cycle to and from work every day and as Frederik and Mary to and from kindergarten with my two youngest ones.

Here is a typical picture from those days where we get up in the morning, look out the window and think "Why on earth isn't I are living in a warmer country?" And yes, you Polyesco as a Southern California girl would probably have a hard time at your first biking around in snow, but it becomes a habit. Just as it has become an everyday thing for Mary who also comes from warmer climates.

But you know what, in return there's nothing better than coming home after the bike ride home from work. Into the warm house, candles and fire in the fireplace.
my face when i saw that pic lol
you guys would seriously laugh out loud if you saw how bundle up i am just to walk from my house to my car

But i can imagine how nice it must be to be able to bike everywhere.
and once again, love that Frederik and Mary go about with no issue.

Now that is me if I had that weather and had to ride my bike to the store, I so love this type of weather, it makes my heart sing and jump for gleeee, do not give me heat and humid weather at all. When it snows here, wondering when, and there is a snow storm, you bet I am out walking in it, making snow angels any place I can find a patch of ground and looking to the heavens to feel the snow on my face, darn you are so lucky to have that and I so wish I could be there to enjoy it.
And I so love your QM for she seems like a really cool lady who does her own thing and the heck with the rest of the world.

It get's pretty cold where you live, so a bicycle ride in DK probably wouldn't scare you.
But I've met Canadians here in DK who thought it was too cold for them. Admittedly that was during an ice-winter. - Coastal climate, the cold is wet in goes into your bones.

Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine, News Part 2: January 2013 -

Wow! I think it's safe to say that photo would never be mistaken for a summer or spring scene. Was it taken this year or a previous year?

I've heard that Denmark doesn't get as much snow and cold snaps as the other Scandinavian countries, but now after having seen that photo, it looks as if I'm incorrect.

In my country, we get a fair amount of snow and it had been snowing for at least four years in a row up until last year. I've never grown out of loving the snow, so I hope it snows this year. I'm off to a snowy country next week however, so I'll still manage to get my fair share. At the moment though, here in England there has been a lot of frost and it's already snowing in some parts of the country and Scotland. I live in one of the warmest parts of the country so it might be no snow for me this year.

No surprise then it was a mountain out of a molehill.

We call New Idea "No Idea" in Australia. If you believed every headline, Mary and Frederick would have a dozen children, a few who would be twins, the Danish court hates her, Duchess of Cambridge is her best friend/worst enemy etc.

oh go ahead criticise your heart out...... we Australians are fully aware that trashy magazines like the New Idea have about 1% truth to the garbage they peddle as the truth.

Thats why they are struggling to survive so few people buy them anymore preferring sources that reflect a more realistic approach to content.

Only old biddies buy the mag now when they are gone the mag will dry up and disappear thank god!

Or that our children are sleeping out in the pram - all year round - also during the winter period. A typical Danish thing that foreigners from warmer climates really don't understand

http://ekstrabladet.dk/migration_cat...e_1033352a.jpg

IIRC Frederik mentions it as well in an interview. How Mary's Australian family have been wondering when they have seen how all their four children as little has slept outside in their pram even through the snowy winter period.

It's not for nothing we Danes descended from the Vikings

No, you are right. We usually don't get that much snow. Coastal climate. The sea heats up the air, especially when the wind is from west. And the wind is usually from west. But when it changes to north or east, that's when we get snow!
But in comparison to the rest of Scandinavia our winters are milder. However, the wind can be more biting and the snow is more wet due to the coastal climate.
I've felt perfectly comfortable in Sweden in minus 20 degrees C, while freezing my butt off in DK in minus 5 C.

Ready for a cute picture of Bella with her two friends?

https://scontent-a-fra.xx.fbcdn.net/...dc&oe=55019909

https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.n...c7ca315f423798 (Mary with Vincent as well)

Mary, Bella and Vincent enjoyed a pleasant afternoon last Saturday and Bella had taken two friends with her. It's Palma Handwerk you see at the right side.

Isabella was as always in her wonderful mood when she Saturday afternoon arrived to the DR Ultra Gala show in Copenhagen. With a friend in each hand and mommy Mary and Vincent just behind her Bella led the way into the Tivoli hotel and the three girls in front laughed and took some dance step along the way.

Besides singing and dancing during the show Bella and Vincent could also see the film their mother and The Mary Foundation has made along with DR. (The film is posted in the Mary Foundation-thread)

Mary's 'Free of Bullying' is by the way integrated in both Christian and Bella's school as well as in Vincent and Josephine's kindergarten.

Yes it's great to see and the children gala show Isabella and Vincent visited with mom was by the way the same gala show Mary attended with The Mary Foundation for about two weeks ago. This time it was just located in Copenhagen and a private family trip (:

Mary attended the gala show with the Maryfoundation:

It seems like the Australian gossip magazine as 'New Idea' takes the slightest little phrase and blowing it up into something totally unrecognizable. And moreover add totally self-invented quotes. It's almost laughable. Is it really in a local news site? I hope not!

This book called 'Livvagten' is written by a former bodyguard of our former Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. 99.9% of the book is about his time as a bodyguard for him. Less than 0.1% of other people. Including a few innocent phrases about working as a royal bodyguard for the Danish royals. Which has received only a few lines of coverage in a Danish gossip magazine some weeks ago. He tells quite simple (which is also described in the article) that the hardest part as a bodyguard is not to become friends with the people they protect. Because you quickly get protectiveness when you're bodyguard for people. But not the slightest friendship may occur, you will need to be quite cold. It's has happened a few times as a bodyguard for the different Danish royals.

Not to criticize your Australian gossip magazines, but they surely are inventive. It is incredible how something can 'become a story' on the way from Denmark until it reaches the other side of the world


So I thought only the magazines reported this story in Australia, and it had completely bypassed our breakfast and morning TV shows.

But, today a teaser was broadcast saying "the Royal scandal ... Princess Mary ... the bodyguard and the tell-all book that's left everyone asking - if something is rotten in the state of Denmark", with footage of F and M kissing, and M with her bodyguards.

Who will tune in tomorrow to find out the "answer" - which wil no doubt have the TV show clearing CP Mary's name/reputation after clouding it to gather a few extra weekend viewers.

And the faces of the bodyguards pixilated in the magazine photos, but not in the TV footage - (both from the most recent visit to Australia).

From the Australian visit? - They were almost exclusively Australian protection officers. Oh, good grief!
It's a relief that foreign press can be just as... mediocre... as our own.

So I just caught up with this TV report, which started out with a family tree from King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid and their "four daughters" - with four pink female figures. (Did some-one die?)

We were told how King Frederik IX's brother Knud was bypassed for Queen Margrethe, who went on to marry Henrik - and how he "spat the dummy" in 2002, jealous of CP Frederik's "rising popularity and power". (I can't think what "power" that would be.)

Nice touch - the family tree graphics were shaken at this point and a grrr sound replaced the courtly music that had been playing in the background.

All this was a lead-in to a cross over to regular Royal reporter Gavin Grey in London who let us know he had been told CP Frederik was "absolutely furious" and the Danish people "livid" and "really angry" at the publication.

Mention was made of a documentary due to come out - as well as the Frederik film.

Can anyone provide any details re this documentary?

Some nice footage from various events shown, but as I thought, after a morning of promoting the "juicy scandal" throughout this program, it all came out to be nothing.

Darn! I thought something juicy was actually happening.

My husband and I stayed at the Gold Coast last night because we'd been there for a work-related Christmas party, and this morning I found myself turning on the TV to the local morning show to fill in time before we left. I think it was a Queensland-specific show, though I can't be sure, and viewers were regularly taunted with the "could something be rotten in the State of Denmark?" line and implications that Mary was on with her bodyguard. I wasn't watching when the story was finally addressed but I was left with the feeling that something really scandalous had happened and I was sure I would find at least half a dozen pages discussing it here.

Alas, it seems we were duped. How dare those naughty TV shows lead us gullible viewers on like that?!

Beware Muhler but I am about to become sexist.
Some of those Pet officers in Denmark & Australia are rather gorgeous indeed. One of the Danish guys I nicknamed grumpy as that is how he always looked.

However , regarding the No Idea story i really hope that the Aussie protection officer tries to sue the magazine over this innuendo. Especially if he is married or has a girlfriend. They are maligning him too.

Alas, I'm afraid the Australian reporters have to look long and hard to find a public outcry here in DK. But perhaps they all decided to go to London to went their anger? The streets were a bit empty this morning, so perhaps I missed the bus?

It is difficult to feel angry about a movie that may never even be made, and not least because no one really know what the movie will be about, what the angle is and how accurate it will be.

Tarlita, men do not appreciate being reduced to sex-objects to be gloated it. I know how it is to have strange women undressing me with their eyes on the street and it really hurts my feelings.
So in protest we in the Men's Libber's Association have, in protest against the rising sexualisation of men, decided to burn our ties in the squares of the four main cities today. We wan't to be respected for our minds, not our bodies!

I wonder if the Danes know they are supposed to be "livid" and if Frederik knows he is "absolutely furious"...
