Since the family recently had an extended vacation in Australia, I wonder if they'll be going on their annual ski trip to Switzerland.

I love that it's an everyday sight in Denmark to bump into Frederik and Mary on bikes in the streets delievering and picking up their children from kindergarten. I'm in no doubt they are SO much hands-on parents and that taken the children to school and kindergarten are on everyday basis in the Danish Crown Prince Family.
and the article on Frederik taking the kids to school and Josephine in her own bike.
Fars store pige: Nu cykler prinsesse Josephine selv - Herognu

It seems Frederik was also spotted in a new cargo bike

It's a more solid bike. (Not as solid though as the genuine Christiania-bikes, which can knock over a car if they hit one!)

But the twins are growing... and as everyone who has been on an outing with the family knows, it's baffling how much equipment, necessities, toys, bathtubs, food, water and other survival gear you end up packing! So a solid bike is always a good idea.
The Nihola bikes are lighter and easier to tread, but can't (safely) carry as much weight as this new one. - (Always avoid the cheap models! They can break and often too easily. And you do not want to hear a sudden crack when pedaling on a busy street with your child/wife/dog/mother-in-law in the basket!)

This is a Christiania bike: http://www.81m80.it/Blog/wp-content/...9_13_11_53.jpg
It's expensive! Extremely solid and can be used to move (all) your furnitures in one move...
It's also build like a main battle tank, and can feel just a heavy to tread...

A Nihola bike: https://lifechangingbikes.files.word...st-ride-21.jpg
Smart, slick, sporty and you don't get overdeveloped leg muscles from using it.
Can't carry as much as the truck described above though.

Butchers and Bicycles: http://obstundgemuese.org/mk1/img/mk1.jpg
This is the medium sized family-car, all-purpose cargo bike. It's the Volvo of cargo-bikes - with a similar acceleration...

Some opt for a cheaper version to attach to your existing bike. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...L._SL1000_.jpg
Don't! One day: Snap! You end up on your face. Your children/dog/groceries etc. end up under the nearest bus.

There are of course people who opt for an electrified cargo-bike - but they lack the right spirit, they lack moral fiber, they are simply not masochist enough. Frederik wouldn't have an electric bike I'm sure - he'd rather suffer the agony of burning leg-muscles.

thank you Muhler
Always nice to invest in good bikes for such an outdoorsy family. That was my Christmas presents for my niece and nephew. Some good off-the trail bikes. They use them quite often.

I hope so. Its always some wonderful pictures in the snow. Most royals take their Christmas holidays in December and then a ski trip in January or February depending on the kid's school holidays.

Love the headline: Fathers big girl now bikes herself.

Her&Nu's reporter noticed a few details. Brave little Josephine was well provided with training wheels on her little bike and helmet as she pedaled the best she had learned. Meanwhile, wise little Vincent took good care of his and his sister lunch boxes on board in the Nihola bike and let dad Frederik do the hard work pedaling Josephine has a "Frozen" lunchbox Vincent's lunchbox is filled with motives from the animated film "Despicable Me."

Fine new bike. Vincent and Josephine can barely sit side by side in the old Nihola bike anymore (;

I wonder how many things they didn't get right?

Happy birthday today to our beloved Crown Princess Mary

Today Mary has no official events. Frederik has official events in the early afternoon, but I'm sure he, all four children and Ziggy celebrating their wife and mother well this morning and in the evening.

I never forget an Australian reporters words on live-TV here in Denmark when she and Frederik celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary in 2014. She said: "Dear Denmark. You gave us the most beautiful gift in shape of the Opera House. As a thank you, we gave you back our most beautiful gift in shape of Mary Elizabeth Donaldson. We take good care of the Opera house, so take good care of our Mary."

I think it was beautifully formulated!


The Danish media celebrates Crown Princess Mary on Facebook. Lots of kind greetings...

While Frederik today at Mary's birthday was out to his official event, Mary in the meantime was spotted by a local Copenhagen out on a run at Kastellet (the Citadel) close to Amalienborg:

Was lucky enough to meet Crown Princess Mary today. She was out for a run at the Citadel. Congratulations. ������������

In celebrating Mary's 44th birthday today TV2 also posted this article:

Stort billedgalleri: Kronprinsesse Mary fylder r i dag - TV 2

A quick review of article:

When Mary last night was at the Cancer Society Merit Award, she was asked and told she was looking forward to celebrate her birthday. She replied that it will be a festive and lovely birthday.

TV2 also talk with a royalty expert. He praises Mary to the skies. As the future Queen she has a special status and has many many tasks. How does she do her job as a future queen? Really really good. She is exceptionally good compared to what we have seen in other countries in Europe where 'ordinary' have been married into a royal family. Is there anything she should do differently? No. She really has understood what the royal family means for Denmark and Danes.

It's certainly new to me that Mary should speak French. I suppose she knows some words and expressions by now, but court only mentions English and Danish among her languages.

The Daily Mail article shows how private Mary's life has been since 2004. Most of the "facts" they gathered are details that date from her early days in Denmark and I doubt they're still valid.

I too think two languages is more correct, English and Danish.

I didn't know her birth had been announced in the Mercury though. Perhaps that's a local custom? - To announce the birth of a child in the paper.

I remember reading somewhere years ago, that Mary had French at school.

Yes it is a custom to announce births in local papers. But it is dying out now as people put it on face book !!

Royal Rob is correct, it is a custom to announce a birth in the newspaper here, before the internet. At high school Mary would have had a choice of which language to learn, being Japanese, French or German. Mainly French and German during her time. So she would only have learnt rudementary French at High School if she chose that.

Thanks Royal Rob & Tarlita.

Mary og Frederiks sger ny kok: S 'almindelige' er opgaverne - Danmark | www.bt.dk
M&F are looking for a new cook or kitchen assistant, who will work with the chef primarily at Amalienborg but also at Grsten, Fredensborg and Trend.
The job will cover cooking for a small family with children... as well as large dinners.
The job will also include making sure the kitchen is clean, taking care of the dishes and whatever else is being done in a kitchen.
A car and a place to sleep for the night is at disposal.

However, applicants should not expect to meet M&F prior to being hired. A recruiting agency takes care of that.

It's still very much the custom in Tasmania Hannelore, (to announce the birth of a child in the local newspaper).

Not just the parents, but often the grandparents also put a notice in.

The hospital staff who attended the birth are often publicly thanked this way too.

When you are old enough your mother will give you the little, now yellowed, piece of newspaper of your own birth announcement, so you can keep it for yourself.

Every week there is a page of photos of that week's newborns posing up with their mums, dads and siblings.

The "Births, Deaths and Marriages" pages are the only reason my Tasmanian Mum still gets the newspaper.

People also put in "In Memorium" notices for their lost loved family and friends on the Anniversary of their deaths - sometimes twenty or thirty years after the passing.

And announcements for the 18th and 21st birthdays and Wedding Anniversaries of course - and these days family members will put in an announcement to congratulate the son or daughter on graduating University, not to mention Engagements and Weddings.

And you can pay extra and get little twirls, or balloons, flowers etc, printed at the top of your announcent these days.

I'm a bit suprised this isn't done in Denmark Muhler. How does your community know what's happening in your life without this system?
