Mary wasn't "letting loose on the dance floor" and Frederik wasn't sitting at a consert... But the name of the place is correct, so that's something.

Indeed, Dazzling.

Apart from being one of the most beautiful castles in DK, it's also a great place for a family outing, or in this case a weekend outing.
With plenty of activities to children of all ages, and even more to look at.

Thanks Muhler,

Must have been a nice weekend for the CP-family.
I'm sure all four children were along as they drove in their big family car.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #24, 2016.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As you know M&F went to Egeborg Castle last weekend. But Isabella was not there with them.
Because Saturday evening Bella went to a Lukas Graham concert in Copenhagen a couple of hundred kilometers away.
The article does not mention who she went with. Presumably private friends or her nanny - and it was here she met Brandon Beal, who is mentioned in the children's thread.
Bella was observed singing along to Lukas Graham's songs and also at some point being lifted up so she could see better. Probably sitting on the shoulders of someone.
There were 20.000 others to the concert.

But back to M&F. The article does not mention their children.
They were shown around by Michael and Caroline Ahlefeldt who live at the castle.
M&F arrived around 17.00 and after being shown around and offered a little treat they went into the conversation-tent. Here the watched a debate between an architect and the British musician Brian Eno. There were several such debates that evening. - So perhaps it was understandable if they left the children at home?

And for those who are not familiar with Lukas Graham:

So that means the photo of Mary & Frederik in the car is from another day ... Because Isabella (wearing headphones) is clearly visible in the back.

Is it normal nowadays for 9 year olds to go to major pop concerts (Adele, Lukas Graham...) ?

(This holds no judgement:) I think F&M have quite a laidback approach to letting young children attend pop concerts, maybe a bit more than the "average" parent. Or have times changed while I was busy becoming old?

I certainly wouldn't let my nine year old attend a concert without a parent of some kind. However Isabella is hardly ever on her own so it's a different perspective really.

Of course, the children are always accompanied by Frederik/Mary or the parents of friends. I just didn't know primary school children attended pop concerts so regularly.

I just double-checked, the article says Saturday. Of course BB could be wrong, but it should easy to verify when it took place because Bella took a selfie with Brandon Beal at the concert.

And yes! Nine year olds do go to concerts with Lukas Graham and Adele, - if they can persuade their parents.
But as Lumutqueen pointed out, Isabella will always be accompanied by at least one adult, not to mention PET.

BB must be wrong then....

Because the picture with Isabella and Brandon Beal is taken (according to his own Instragram) last Thursday (7th June 2016).

So that IS Isabella on the backseat in Frederik and Mary's family car. It is clearly her and the picture is from that day.

And I can't see why F&M should drive in their big family car if it wasn't because they had all their children along :)

Thats a good point. The photo on instagram says Thursday.
And in the family car photo we can clearly see Isabella.
Probably went with a friends parent if not with her own parents.
nice of Frederik and Mary to enjoy a day out at the festival

Do you remember we talked about that the Crown Prince family usually take in Tivoli (private) when the children have birthdays?

The last birthday was Isabella's and I could see 2-3 of comments on Facebook from (the few Danes) who had noticed them among all the others families and could tell how they had seen a happy birthday-girl celebrating her birthday in Tivoli with father, mother, siblings and schoolmates.

A little boy has just posted this nice selfie he took with Mary - and it is taken during a private trip to Tivoli on Isabella's birthday (21 April) where he met the Crown Prince family

Thanks Roskilde. Fun to see Mary without layers of make up or photoshop. She looks just as good like this!

And another thanks from me for sharing this Roskilde. I remember reading once before that Mary doesn't mind stopping for a picture or a selfie if you see her in public. I think that's rather down to earth of her and its nice that she stopped for the little boy's selfie.

What? Tivoli is in Italy? No wonder I have been failing my geography exams. Another fine example of superb journalism from the Daily Mail... God help us all...

Summer has descended on Denmark. Schools are closing and it's time for vacation.
Also I imagine to M&F's favorite place, the hunting lodge at Trend.

At Trend you are far out in the countryside, yet close to everything. Especially if you are a family that just want to relax. Go for evening strolls. Jump on the bikes and explore the area. - Going through moors, villages, past farms, across streams, along fjords, up and down hills and deep inside forests or just enjoying the fields.

So I thought I would take you with me and M&F on such an illustrated bicycle ride in Northern Jutland.

In contrast to what many think, Denmark and Jutland in particular can be surprisingly hilly. Gentle hills. But after a long hot summers day up and down hills, you are ready to mail your legs as well as posterior home!
The reason is that during the last iceage the glaciers ended in Jutland, so the area is hilly where the glaciers pushed the earth before them.
http://www.b.dk/sites/default/files-...kling2jpg.jpeg

Only a couple of hours ride from Trend are Rebild Hills and this is how it looks: http://www.rebildporten.dk/sites/def...bakker_t10.jpg
This is also the only place outside USA, where the 4th July is celebrated each year, and have been so for more than 100 years.

And being an active family, they may try some cross-country cycling: http://files.guidedanmark.org/files/483/483_310688.jpg

Or go fishing in a stream: https://dansknatur.files.wordpress.c...randzoner1.jpg
http://www.trendmoelle.dk/moelle.jpg

But most of Himmerland, where Trend is located looks like this: http://www.slagtenhelligko.dk/upload...erland-071.jpg

Our happy little family ride on, past farms: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Duysh2-dZc...0/IMG_0031.JPG
https://silkeborgcom.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/1.jpg

Through a bend in the road: http://www.stærhøj.dk/wp-content/upl...11/Tintin2.jpg
And suddenly they are passing through a village:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ikBK6g1htl...e+landsby+.jpg
(I actually know this house. It's not that far from where I was born and grew up).
https://www.bolius.dk/fileadmin/gall..._Elstrup_F.jpg
And sometimes you feel you have gone back centuries.
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...B8_village.JPG
We now live in a village that look pretty much like this:
http://ntsnet.dk/sites/default/files...d%2016.9_0.jpg

All of a sudden they encounter one of the many manors dotted all over DK: https://realdania.dk/~/media/realdan...02.jpg?mw=4000

At this time of year, many cows are on grass. This breed is among the most common in DK: http://landbrugsavisen.dk/files/arti...0gr%C3%A6s.jpg
Or eco-pigs. They are happy as long as they have their shelters: http://langeliniegaarden.dk/wp-conte...09/Ny-de-3.jpg
So there is plenty for Vincent to shout at.

But perhaps, Josephine as the observant girl, she is will wonder why some of the cows wear bras. - I.e. an udder-support: http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/78/6/80...t-yver---2.jpg
Or raincoats:
http://www.msdiscovery.org/sites/def...?itok=8XDwj9kt
There really is a purpose behind it all and you can read about it here: Beyond Reasonable Doubt: The vitamin D piece of the MS puzzle | Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum

Just a bit to the south and our family suddenly find themselves on the Jutland Moor:
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped..._ved_Vrads.jpg
http://static.panoramio.com/photos/o...l/75121013.jpg

By now our little family are getting hungry. So how about buying some strawberries, honey, carrots, peas and fresh potatoes from a roadside stand? You have never tasted potatoes until you have tasted freshly dug up potatoes, still with earth on them. That I guarantee!
http://www.visitdenmark.no/sites/def...?itok=yZtJv311

https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t5...MDM1ODYwMDIz.2
http://images.fyens.dk/0/826100_1200..._4256_2394.jpg
The system is very simple: The farmer put their products at the side of the road, with a sign saying that a box of strawberries costs say 20 DKK. People pay by putting money in a box or a jar and in the evening the farmer go out to collect the money.

Having stuffed themselves with strawberries, the family head home. But in the evening after having tucked the twins to bed, M&F head to a nearby inn, for a little meal on their own.
A very ordinary inn that you can everywhere in the countryside: http://files.guidedanmark.org/files/463/463_308202.jpg

By the time M&F have finished their dinner, the clock is past 22.00 so they head for the nearby Limfjord to watch the sun go down:
http://jerslevfoto.dk/wp-content/upl...Web%20(22).jpg

On another day the family go east, towards the east coast of Jutland: http://cdn.simplesite.com/i/d9/d6/28...1280h1280_.jpg
And here they visit the national park, Lille Vildmose, where they will find, elks, bison, wild boars, the European Wild Ox and countless birds, like eagles.

- And that I think is enough for one day.
