They are available at least here in the Copenhagen area

Vogue Australia has hit the streets today and Daily Mail has more on the actual article and what is being said: Crown Princess Mary strikes a solemn figure alongside husband Frederik in Vogue | Daily Mail Online

ADDED: I understand from glancing other royal sites that this issue of Vogue is basically themed about Denmark, with focus (and adverts) on Danish products and concepts. In that context M&F is so to speak the icing on the cake.

ADDED: The editorial from Vogue: http://www.vogue.com.au/blogs/editor...ust+2016,39602

Yes there was quite a bit of Danish focus in this edition of Vogue. Which made a good tie in to the overall theme of Mary's interview.

I've taken photos of the interview pages, excluded some of the photos already seen/circulating.

Thank you very much, JessRulz.

As a Dane and a royalist I couldn't be more pleased.
If that's the gist of the whole magazine, they'll be smiling broadly in the Ministry of Commerce as well. - There is a saying in DK: Many little brooks make a big river. Such a feature being one of these brooks.
It was not an in-depth article a such, but the facts were correct. Especially the hard bit about DK planning and expecting to be independent from fossil fuel by 2050.
The photos in the magazine were better I think than those published so far. I found the photo of M&F in profile very good. But the photo of Mary standing behind her desk was actually elegantly sexy.

Thank for the photos, Polyesco.
Frederik in his navy summer dress uniform, then life can hardly be much better, eh?

agree.
and thank you again JessRulz for the interview. A well done interview focusing on her work and Denmark's efforts. Both the Copenhagen Fashion Summit and Women Deliver conferences were highlighted as well as Denmark's lead in wind farms.

Love the little story of during their photo shoot, nearby Danes recognizes them and pulled in closer to the boat, Frederik gave them a warm greeting as if they were lifelong friends. Reminds me of the stories of King Frederik and him enjoying a beer and chat with the local sailors

and again the profile photo of them together is so nice. classic and elegant

Thank you very much Jess for scanning the article for us. I read your scans and they were quite interesting. I particularly liked Mary's quote "I am a voice for the voiceless". I've always thought the Danish CP family were rather down to earth, but Mary particularly seems to be quite humble. I liked the black and white portraits of Frederik and Mary, they are regal and sophisticated; and also rather classic looking.

Thank you very much JessRulz

I enjoyed reading the interview which indeed can only make a Dane satisfied. Good focus on our country.

Crown Princess Mary may be bad to recieve praise, but she certainly deserves it. She said after the wedding she would make a difference and would do her best to earn her title - and she really has!

Good pictures! The one of Frederik and Mary in profile is beautiful and the one of Mary behind her desk indeed nice.

My internet connection is bad (I'm on vacation) but your scans are appreciated, JessRulz.

I also add my thanks for the easily readable scans so that those of us outside Oz can share the magazine content! A very interesting interview; not only profiling the Danes but also the Australian connection! I am intrigued whether the magazine has a larger than usual readership in the normally republican Oz?

The full transcript of the Vogue interview can be seen on the blog :kronprinsenfrederik.tumblr.com.

The little honey bear containers are available in the eastern US, too. Empty ones can be purchased on amazon.com under the title 'plastic squeeze bottles.' If amazon.com doesn't have it, you can probably get along without it.

ETA: all of the pictures from Vogue are with the article, too. Including another one of F & M walking in the shadows, this time facing forward. Too bad there's a shadow on Frederik's face which gives him a most unfortunate-looking mustache. Of all the photoshopping they did, why couldn't they fix that?

Today, the serious Berlingske bring a large interview with Crown Prince Frederik in connection with the Olympic Games in next month.

Crown Prince Frederik in large OL interview: OL reminds me of when I met Mary
Kronprins Frederik i stort interview: OL minder mig om dengang, jeg mødte Mary


The memories of the meeting with Mary at the Olympics is still strong for the Crown Prince.

While Crown Prince Frederik dreamed of being active exercises at the Olympic Games, the meeting with Mary Donaldson on Sydney Harbour is still his strongest Olympic memory

That tells the Danish Crown Prince in an interview with Berlingske today.

Crown Prince Frederik met his woman in 2000, when he visited Australia in connection with the Olympic Games in Sydney. But although the couple's meeting at the games stands as a strong memory, they haven't had so much time to go to the Olympics together in the years after.

"(...) My wife has not been so much to the Olympics since, because she has had to be mother for small children almost since then. But yes, that's special, although I want to say that it's even more when we are in Sydney Harbour that our memories from the Olympics in 2000 are being refreshed. It was there the Olympics at the time were hold, and everything was just fantastic. It was the first time I was in Australia, there was full press activities all day long, and that it also is there you meet your future wife ... well, it was perfect," says the Crown Prince.

You can read the entire interview with Frederik here - a good interview of Frederik and the Olympic Games:

thank you Roskilde, I look forward to reading the interview.
What a nice quote. We can see how clearly the Olympics mean to him, to both.

I would like to echo Polyesco's comments. When I finished reading what Fred said I thought Awww isn't that nice. Of course the Athens Olympics in 2004 -They hadn't started a family by then. And so they enjoyed the time together. I like the way the DRF use the Dannebrog as a floating hotel when they visit countries for a long period of time. (Such as the Olympics) She is like a home away from home.
I remember when in Sydney in 2000 His Excellency Mr Samaranch's (Olympic boss) view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge was blocked from his Hotel Suite by a big Cruise ship. Guess What!! They had it moved so his view was unimpeded.

I don't think it is going to be a best-seller gerry - I've just been to the supermarket, and there are stacks and stacks of copies still sitting on the shelves.

And this is in a middle-class suburb of Sydney, not a country town or regional centre where "Vogue" would have a smaller reach I think.

This week's "New Idea" and "Woman's Day" magazines are almost sold out - and they were only published two days ago.

One of those has a colourful spread of the family at Legoland - lots of photos I haven't seen on the internet.

(This wasn't a cover story, so I don't think it had any impact on the sales of that magazine though.)

I also don't think it is the price.

"Vogue" is going for $8.50, whereas most people who buy "New Idea" also buy "Woman's Day" - and that would cost around $35.00 a month.

The republican thing is such a dead horse that those still flogging it here in Oz should be up for animal cruelty. I don't think that would influence sales/lack of sales.

Perhaps the cover was too dark against all the more colourful magazines around it.

Australia is a big magazine market - very cut throat.Many magazines are out every week here, that are never mentioned on TRFs, so I don't think it is a general lack of interest in magazines.

Perhaps they printed more copies than usual.

But in any case, they don't seem to be selling.


P.S. - I've also seen many copies still on the shelves of my two local newsagents - (in a different suburb) - but only one copy of the Duchess of Cambridge's UK "Vogue".

Though that may have been out longer, and probably there were less copies to begin with, being an imported magazine. (Though more expensive at $12.99.)

Perhaps the supermarket overstocked royal rob.

And they went to the trouble of sealing each copy in a plastic bag, whereas the ones at the newsagents weren't wrapped.

A very nicely done issue too with it's double-front cover.

Quality paper and much more impact with the full-page photos than the computer screen is able to show.

It's still a few weeks before the next month's version comes out, so hopefully more will be sold.

Shame Mary will only be in Rio up to the first day of competitions, as the kids go back to school that week. Frederik in his recent interview said how much he enjoys the Olympics and admires the athletes
