This could become interesting.

Category: | The Mercury

The U-11 Hobart soccer team the Taroona Princes have formally requested Mary (and Christian) to become patron for their team.
Mary went to Taroona High School.

- Since Mary is already involved with the university in Hobart and this is about as innocent as it can get, I would not be the least bit surprised if Mary accepted and Christian was made the patron. His first protection perhaps?
The family will probably go to Australia in a couple of years and Christian is no doubt more or less fluent in English by now and this should be something he can handle without much difficulty and it's good practice and excellent PR.
It could also lead to the U-11 team going to DK for a visit at Amalienborg and a few matches. I can't remember off-hand which DK city is friendship-city with Hobart, and with soccer being the big thing here in DK they should no problems at all finding someone to play against. - Good PR again.

Makes perfect sense; is there a tradtion Muhler of Danish royal children doing high school exchanges? The British Royal family sent their children to Canada, Australia and ?, so I wonder the DRF will send their children to Australia on exchange

Yes and no. It's pretty common for classes in schools and high schools to have a cultural exchange.
I.e. a friend-ship-class in Spain may go for a week or two to DK, have lessons alongside the Danish kids, as far as it is practically possible, and more importantly each kid team up with a Danish kid, and stay with the Danish kid's family for the time he or she is here. The year after the DK children will go to Spain.
It is less common for individual students to be embedded in a foreign class for a longer period, unless it's in America, Britain or indeed Australia, simply because Danish high-school students ought to be pretty fluent in English. The problem is of course that not that many foreign high school students are fluent in Danish...

But I do think at least some, probably all, of M&F's children will at some point go to Australia. I can easily imagine them being embedded in an Australian high school for say six months, or later on attending an Australian university or work for a year in Australia.
And I think it's far from unlikely that one of them will eventually settle there.
I believe it's almost certain they will go on some kind of walkabout in Australia, more or less on their own. Simply to get to know their mother's country.
On the other hand it may not be unlikely that some of Mary's nieces and nephews will come to study for a semester in DK.

Indeed.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #23, 2016.
Where a Elsemarie Nygaard would like to know what books Mary reads.

Jon Bloch Skipper don't know, but Mary is very fond of reading and books by the following authors are known to have been read by her:
H.C. Andersen (before she came to DK), Eckhart Trolle, Olav Hergel.

Actually I think she's much more of an occasional reader than a bookworm. Only very seldom has she been spotted with a book, and she just seems to be a person with different types of interest, such as sports (most of all perhaps), outdoor lifestyle, social activities with friends, but also cultural events such as theatre, concerts and plastic arts. Also photography seems to play a big part in her life.

Agree, not a bookworm. She may have been reading a lot before, but I doubt she has much time for reading now.

I do hope theres no truth what so ever to this article...:
Prinsen utpekad som sexköpare | Stoppa Pressarna €“ Kungligheter €“ Kungafamiljen €“ Svensk Damtidning €“ Prinsessan Madeleine €“ Kronprinsessan Victoria

For those who do not know swedish: An author claims that CP Frederik spent 50.000 crowns for a prostitute and that his marriage to Mary was virtually a farce....
90% in his book fictional, 10% true. Can someone who is fluent in swedish clear things up?

Dear Wartenberg,

You can go safely to bed tonight (: It was an article in the cheapest Danish magazine about 3 weeks ago. The magazine retracted their story completely already the day after it's release. Her&Nu regretted big time with the words: We're very sorry to have brought untrue, inaccurate and damaging information about the Crown Prince. They complained a number of other things which they also admitted was untrue.

There have been no drama

It's, by the way, the second time in six months that Her&Nu has retracted a story completely. Let's hope they learn from it....

Hi Wartenberg,
In page 12 of this thread, you will find some very comprehensive posts done by Muhler on this matter. with quotes and articles
Basically the author which admitted that 90% of the book is untrue to begin with, and when the DRF came to quickly and strongly deny it; denied himself that he ever mentioned Frederik.
the editor of this magazine also had to come out and issue an apology and retracted his article. It was based on no facts or evidence and just the author using every famous name in Denmark to sell his book

In other news, Frederik and Mary were spotted at the heartland festival
Royalt besg: Kronprinsparret indtager snakketeltet p Heartland | Faaborg-Midtfyn | Fyens.dk

"HEARTLAND FESTIVAL is weekend experience of music, art, talks and food, located in the stunning surroundings of Egeskov Castle and Gardens in Denmark, less than two hours’ drive from Copenhagen. "

Today, Frederik and Mary and children (99% sure I can spot the children in their big family-car) privately visited the Heartland Festival at Egeskov Castle The Heartland festival is a weekend with experience of music, art, talks and food, located in the stunning surroundings of Egeskov Castle less than two hours’ drive from Copenhagen.

It is the couple Michael Ahlefeldt and Caroline Ahlefeldt who own Egeskov and you may remember them from different events with the DRF and they also holidayed with the Crown Prince family in Australia last year. Michael Ahlefeldt Laurvig is also one of Vincent's godfathers.

again so wonderful that they can go out and about like everyone and enjoy a festival.

Article with one more picture
Kronprinsparret slog sig ls p Egeskov - Herognu
"the Royal couple, who were invited by Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille, enjoyed not only food and music, among other things, was included by Anne Linnet, but also each other. They held on to each other and looked like most of all any other couple who had found their way out on a warm summer evening to enjoy each other's company without children.*"

That photo is from Roskilde 2014.

Without children? Isabella can be seen in one of the pics and I doubt they would arrived in a big car like that, if it had only been the three of them.

Thank you, very much relieved to read your post!
Still this performance of this "author" is unheard of! How could someone publish a book like this, claiming outrageous things about a person, a family and claiming at the same time it was 90% fiction?!
What times we are living in! The problem is, that this trash remains forever in the internet and another person, may be in one year, three years might think, like I did, there might be some truth to it... Very sad and annoying

Looks like Alexandra Berleburg sitting next to Mary (her left hand side)?

Indeed. And great it so easily can be done.
It's also one of the reasons to F&M's popularity. They are a part of the people and mingle with us common Danes. And they like it... No doubt about that.

From yesterday's visit:

"The Crown Prince Couple, who was invited to the Funen by Count Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille, enjoyed not only the food and music, which among other things, was provided by Anne Linnet, but also each other. They strolled around holding around each other and looked like any other couple who had made their way out on a warm summer evening to enjoy each other company."
