Summary of article in Billed Bladet #28, 2010.
Marie og hendes fire Prinser nyder livet - Marie and her four Princes enjoy life.
Written by Trine Larsen, who specialise in Joachim and Alexandra and their families.

Trine Larsen found Princess Marie and all her boys, Joachim, Nikolai, Felix and Bette Henrik going shopping at the local market near Chateau de Cayz, where they are spending a couple of weeks of holiday.
With them are also a couple of friends, Simon and Maria Bast and their two daughters aged eleven and seven.
And a nanny.
The temperature closing in on 40 degrees C, they are all summerly dressed. Joachim, being a gentleman, is naturally casually elegant.
And he greets teasingly our reporter: "Hello (*), are you (**) also down here on holiday?
We have arrived a bit late (for the market). Things don't always go so fast and smooth, when you have small children. It is after all he, who determines the pace".
Whereupon the Marie takes over...
M: "Oh yes, we are having such a lovely time here. It's so nice to be here and we are just having a good time (hygge) and relax. It's quite, tranquil and very, very lovely".

M: "It's great with sun and warmth. we enjoy that a lot".

Joachim however is not in complete agreement: "We shouldn't complain about sun and warmth during the holiday, but for the past couple of days, it's been so hot that you can't do anything. We have spend most of the time in the swimming pool. That's the only thing you really can stand doing, but that's pretty nice too.
We are going to stay here for a week more, so it'll be pure relaxation and family holiday".

Bette Henrik are now on the verge of taking his first steps unaided. He demonstrates that with the aide of mother. Soon he will be all over the place!
Henrik is not all distrubed by our reporter and a photographer. He is used to new places and new people all the time, so a couple of reporters doesn't bother him at all.
A proud Marie explains: "He cannot yet work all by himself. He would like to and he is also standing up all the time, if he has something to hold on to. But when he has to walk, then he still needs a little help and a hand.
Yes, it won't be long before he can walk by himself. Time flies so fast, they grow up fast.
He is getting a little tired now, because it's past the time, where he usually have his nap, so he is not that eager. (Taking a few steps). But he sure want's to and especially if his two brothers are there and play with him and help him. That he thinks is fantastic and he loves them. They are simply just such nice older brothers".

To most parents their children are among their favourite topics, that also includes our Marie: "He is so sweet and easy. But also very determined".

Q: It that little curls?
M: "Yes, he has a bit of curls.
J: "It's about time he gets a haircut. It's getting a bit long".
M: "Noo cheri, (***) he's so sweet with that length. It's nice to him".
Q: Perhaps you should work on having a princess, than the matter of hair length, will not be a matter for debate?
J: (Laughing): "Could be".
M: "Yes, that would be lovely".

Now, Nikolai and Felix got some panama hats at the market, just like the one Marie and dad were wearing, and which appear to be very popular with the younger members of the DRF.
Then time for a little posing.
Nikolai: "Don't we just look cool"?
The hat sizes appear to be a problem, but fortunately both Nikolai and Felix have ears....

Q: But Prince Nikolai, you are having long sleeves on your blouse. Aren't you dying from heat?
N: "Nope, I'm fine".
Joachim: "Jeez, Nikolai is so sensitive to cold, so it's utterly unbelievable. He only starts to discard long sleeves and find it appropriate when the temperature pass 30 degrees C. It's utterly incredible.
40 degrees, that's fine with you, right Nikolai"?

A note states that the court has confirmed that Benedikte will be regent (Rigsforstander) while the rest of the DRF (minus Frederik) will go to wedding in Greece in August. So Marie will not be cheated of a wedding this time.


(*) Goddag = formal greeting.

(**) Using formal you.

(***) And cheri is according to Trine Larsen what Marie calls her Joachim.

The following article includes some of the pics without watermarks:


** billedbladet.dk: Se her: Lille prins Henriks første skridt **

("See here: Little Prince Henrik's first step")

"14 months old and full of desire to explore the world", the article says
and repeats Marie's quote about Henrik's first steps - see Muhler's translation.

In Muhlers translation, it says the temp was almost 40c, personally, not ideal for a baby to be out in that hot sun. Even if he was, he might not tan easily or at all but just go red. Marie has darker sking than her son which makes her easy to tan.

Love the hats they are all wearing, pitty there isnt one for Henrik

I'd be concerned if she let her child tan. Babies should have sun protection on.

Why???? Babies need the sun to toughen their skin. If Henrik is molly coddled at this age he will be a wimp when he is older. Why is Marie's skin any different to Henrik's? She has a beautiful tan, so should he

Such lovely photos! I am envious of Marie's tan. They all look really happy and relaxed.

I think Marie should watch the taning, it is okay now, a few more years of constantly exposing herself to the sun and her skin will certainly show this, unless of course she got her tan another way.

Beautiful family! The baby looks a lot like his dad. Marie is beautiful. I would not like my son being too tan...babies have a delicate skin and should always be protected from the sun!

According to this Billed Bladet article, Marie and Joachim left the pre-wedding dinner in Greece last week early, as Marie wasn't feeling well after the first course. Marie left the main room rather quickly, and was followed by Joachim and Princess Mary soon after to make sure she was okay. They then returned and asked the hotel's security guard to call the couple a taxi to take back to their accommodations. Princess Alexandra's son, Count Richard (who was also a page boy at the wedding) left the party with Joachim and Marie.

The Greek wedding is of course well featured in this edition and there is really not that much focus soley on members of the DRF, except:

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2010.
Marie fik det dårligt - Marie was unwell.
Written by Anne Johannesen.

Mary and Princess Marie went to to a prewedding party with Joachim at the restuarant Orlof.

Shortly after the first courses had been served our Marie fell ill. She left the table and went to another room to be herself. Shortly after followed by Joachim and Mary, who had kept an eye on her sister-in-law (svigerinde).
After some time both returned, Mary to her seat, Joachim keeping his arm around Marie. Shortly after they asked one of the security guards to call a taxi. Nikolaos got up to see if there was anything he could do. The taxi arrived and a passenger already in the cab was politely requested to get out and Joachim, Marie and the young count Richard drove back to the hotel. It was way past master Richard's bedtime.

The next day our reporter caught up with Joachim and the fair Marie returning from a swim. And asked whether the cause of Marie feeling unwell may have something to do with a pregnancy she replied: "No, that we can deny. I'm not pregnant". Why did she feel unwell? - "I was just a little tired, it was almost one o' clock and then it was also time for little Richard to go to bed".

Mary was asked after the party had ended: How is the pregnancy progressing?
M: "Fine, thank you. There are no problems. I'm fine".

Q: Do you know the gender of the twins?
M: "The first two times we didn't want to know, but you become more curious as the years go by".

Q: So you know what you are having?
M: "I'd rather not say anything about that".

Q: You will not or you cannot?
M: "I will not say anything" and smiled.

- I will leave it to the moderators to decide whether this last bit should be moved and where to.
