and an exciting day for Frederik and Christian at a sailing race
"In those days held DM in Drage in the appropriate Øreundsby Dragør. After the restart of the first race, the championship started in earnest in light winds and cloudy.
Among the participants is Crown Prince Frederik as in addition to the permanent crew of the Dragon 'Nanoq', Anders Myralf and Jesper Riise, also has his son Prince Christian on board."

The weekend starts today and Frederik and Christian seems to begin it with some cool father and son time

"Dragør Sejlklub and Dansk Drageklub host the Open Danish Dragon Championship 20th to 22nd May 2016 - The Crown Prince has taken Prince Christian with him on board"

Among the participants is Crown Prince Frederik. In addition to the permanent crew of the Dragon 'Nanoq', Anders Myralf and Jesper Riise, he also has his son Prince Christian on board:

Christian must be super excited. Nice bonding time.
We have seen that Christian has taken sailing classes before
http://40.media.tumblr.com/b9888eab4...uko10_1280.jpg
which Frederik has often taken him

and if I may borrow from Muhler one of his many translations.
It was an interview with Frederik and Henrik about the 150 anniversary of the Royal Yacht club. He mentions Christian and sailing

"Frederik: "We are very attentive about his well-being and joy about sailing".
PH: "I have a couple of times talked with him about sailing and he seem very fond of sailing. That's good at that age, but I have not yet seen Prince Christian sail".
Frederik: "Christian has been doing this sport for a couple of years, so it's difficult to say anything about his potentials. - I often go with him to training, where we often talk about it. And it's very important for him that he has my backing".
Frederik adds that Christian is more bold in a boat than Frederik was at that age. "

Prins Christian til kapsejlads med kronprins Frederik | BILLED-BLADET

More on Christian sailing with dad. The competition went on for two days.

During Saturday, mother Mary with the rest of the children showed up in a motorboat to cheer Christian and dad.

Thanks Muhler

This was today. Christian participated in the whole sail competition with dad while Mary had Bella, Vincent and Josephine with her to the race to cheer on Frederik and Christian. Mary and the children cheered on a boat out on the water.

BB mentions:

- For the second day Christian participating in the prestigious "Danish Open Dragon Championship" with his father.

- Right from the start, Frederik and Christian emerged as a close-knit team of the dragon "Nanoq" in Dragør Harbour.

- Immediately after arrival at Dragør harbor this morning Christian began hosing the boat's deck, while Frederik talked with several of the other sailors on the quay.

- Then several hours of sailing went for Frederik and Christian.
During the race Christian was seen very active on the boat and did the tasks that he got underway without problems.

- Today Mary with Isabella, Vincent and Josephine visited so they could cheer on their two sailors. They cheered on a boat out in the water.

- It is the first time that Christian participates in a sailer race with his father.

Christian is competing in the races with his dad as a regular crew-member. And for the first time.

It makes me smile seeing that even the royals spend their weekend at their kids' sporting events. Mary The Soccer Mom.

Thanks for the close-up picture of Christian, Polyesco

I see SO much granddad John Donaldson in him. And I has done since Christian was a baby. Christian has inherited his grandfather's and mother's mild, confident and calm Scottish mind.

I remember reading both Frederik and Margrethe have noticed it too. And it will (and already does) make it so much easier for Christian with this important role he has.

**

Se&Hør with an article with a gallery:
Kronprinsen om Christian i kapsejlads: Han klarede det fortræffeligt | SE og HØR

About Christian's abilities as a sailor?

- He did it excellently, smiled a proud father and Crown Prince to Se&hør after the sailing in Dragør.

In this BB video, Christian is giving an interview about sailing: VIDEO: Prins Christian fortæller om sin sjove dag på vandet med far | BILLED-BLADET

I notice that he is just calmly answering the questions, without making a show of himself or being shy.

From 0:45
Christians confirms that it was fun:
"Yes, I think so".

Q: How is it to sail with you dad?
"It's different, because I've also sailed optimist dinghy".

Q: Okay, so you could use some of the techniques you've learned?
"Yes".

Q: What do you like about sailing?
"That, eh, that it's a cool pleasure to be out on the water. And at the same time, you also kinda have to work, rather than just sitting around waiting".

Q: Can dad teach you some tricks?
"He sure can".

Frederik is also answering questions albeit a little more reluctant that Christian, about whom he said had done splendidly.
He also laughingly admitted that it went better today, from being second last in the race, to whatever position they had.

Thanks Muhler,

A pleasure to watch this video of Christian being interviewed as a little prof royal already He's a good mix of both mother, father and grandfather John.

I have said it before, but I will say it again, I'm pleased to see the way F&M bring up their children. They have the most confident, natural, well-adjusted children who on a very fine way learn to grow up with the press. They are 10, 9 and 5 years old and already obvious confident and natural in front of the press - and certainly not afraid to talk to them neither. And at the same time they (and are allowed to) act just like children.

Christian with this little interview, and we saw Bella last year giving a tv-interview to the TV2 News when she had her first official duty on Samsø and we see only 5-years-old Vincent and Josephine spontaneously greet the press with a 'Hi' when they meet them.

I agree they are doing a great job bringing up their wonderful family. Such a great example to other royal families. How sad Mary's mother never got to see her daughter become such a beautiful wife and mother. I'm sure Mary sees a lot of her mother in her children.

I am so happy to hear Christian speaking a "normal Danish" and not the posh one Joachims children are speaking.

Horray for Mary and Frederik. They are doing a fine job bringing the children up

First of all there are a lot of fantastic dialects in Denmark, and that is beautiful.
what I talk about is a bit snobbish way of pronouncing the words.

Well when I listened again, it was not that bad with Athena and Henrik, but Joachim sound so snobbish. sorry this was totally out of topic

yes its wonderful that in Denmark they can enjoy the rides and outings with their family in peace. Although I suspect we might see Frederik and Mary pedaling with Ziggy in the basket in the future as the kids are getting older and heavier

its cute, Vincent looks like he is ready to jump on board with dad and Christian. Im sure we'll see him and his sisters sailing as well in the future

Kongehuset: Her er sandheden om Frederiks utroskabs-rygte - MX.dk

In this weeks edition of the gossip magazine Her & Nu, a Sexologist named, Jakob Olrik, says Frederik visited a prostitute.
Or more correctly he has written a book based on storied a former girlfriend of his, a call-girl, has told him and in very poorly blurred form mentions a number of Danish well-known or influential people who should have been her costumers.
In the book a "member of the DRF" paid 50.000 DKK for a night at Hotel D'angleterre.
Anyway the author told Her & Nu: "Luna (the call-girl) told me that the Crown Prince was a very shy and considerate chap, who treated her well.
I can't prove her statement, but since you ask, I'm fully convinced that she told the things as they were. We were after all sweethearts and she needed to off-load and it wouldn't come as a surprise for me that the Crown Prince was a part of it".

Lene Balleby has responded: "The DRF consider along the way, whether the things brought in the media are to cause a reaction. That is also the case in this specific case, where strongly offensive and untrue claims that are based of rumors and guesswork are passed on".

According to Jakob Olrik, Frederik should have spend a night at Hotel D'angleterre (of all places, might just as well have been on Amalienborg Square!) and paid 50.000 DKK for the pleasure, while PET was waiting outside.

-----------

I remember reading a bit about the book when it was published a month or so ago. It more or less hinted that every politician and important businessman and actor worth mentioning had been "Luna's" costumers, and also an "anonymous" member of the DRF. All this should have taken place some years ago.
I dismissed the DRF bit as untrue on the spot when reading about it. Because 50.000 DKK for one night is serious money! Even for a member of the DRF. And if a member of the DRF wanted to have sex with a prostitute there are many other and much more discreet places to do it than downtown Copenhagen! Berlin, Hamburg or Paris about an hours flight away would be a more obvious and discreet option.

Anyway, I guess sale of the book is going slow, hence the author involving Frederik.
But from my non-juridical view, this is downright slander and the author may very well face a lawsuit and if the author has been equally liberal in regards to other (important, influential and wealthy) people mentioned in the book, he may live to regret ever writing that book!
Presumably he counts on the DRF not wanting to take legal actions "because they never respond to claims in the press" or perhaps he is simply stupid.

Okay, having said that, is it possible that this could be true?
IMO: No. Not Frederik. Not only because he by all accounts is a happily married man but also because he wouldn't have to see a prostitute. There would be plenty of willing women around, especially before he met Mary.
As this is bound to end up in the Australian press and probably Daily Mail as well (they check Her & Nu's website) I can't see how the DRF can avoid taking legal actions against Jacob Olrik, unless he detracts publicly and unreservedly - and that will be difficult with that quote, unless he admits the whole book is a fabrication.
