I don't know.

The next issue of Billed Bladet will hit the streets tomorrow, due to Easter, perhaps we'll know then.
The preview hints that at least Isabella celebrated farmor Margrethe's birthday in some way.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #17, 2011.
Marie og Joachims sjove aften - Marie and Joachim's funny evening.
Written by the man, Ulrik Ulriksen.

Friday, the day after the baptism Joachim and our Marie went to TV2's tv studio in Copenhagen to see the recording of an episode of the satire show: Live from Bremen. Taped in front of a live audience.
Here they sat on the third row, flanked by two senior managers from TV2, Oscare and Britt Siesbye (naturally, they are always together).

Some of the more popular comedians in DK Lars Hjortshøj and Casper Christensen, were in the center of attention.
And there were quite a few jokes about the christening!
After the show had been aired, J&M went backstage.

Casper Christensen appears to have become a friend of Joachim in particular. Joachim has been a vivid follower of another show, with Casper Christensen, Klown = Clown. And he did indeed provide a part of the entertainment at Joachim's stag night before marrying his Marie.
Joachim and Casper Christensen have since then seen eachother a number of times.

- Now, I don't watch the shows: Live from Bremen, Clown or The Blind Angle and I don't find neither Casper Christensen nor Lars Hjorthøj that funny. So if other Danes have something to add, please do.

Apart from that BB informs us that Joachim and the fair Marie will come to Aarhus on the 14 and 15. May, where Joachim will take part in the race near Marselisborg Manor. The race is called Classic Race and last year Joachim was the undisputed winner in his class of historical cars.
It's speculated as to whether Princess Marie will hand out the trophies again this year.

It wasn´t "Live fra Bremen", but "Den blinde vinkel" as I stated in post 81 :)

Joachims ven: Vi vidste den var helt gal - Danmark - BT.dk

Yesterday Joachim drove in a race at the Padborg Park race track (*). And there a motorcyclist, Thomas Harding, was killed.
Joachim was scheduled to drive right after the bikers, but was told to wait.

Joachim's fellow driver and good friend, Otto Reedtz-Thott explain to BT that they knew something was seriously wrong when they saw the air ambulance but it was only after they returned home they learned about the accident resulting in someone dying.
- "I phoned Joachim afterwards and even though we didn't talk much about the accident, I do think he is shocked, like I am".

They did however race, but only after a two hour delay.
Princes Marie and bette Henrik were present as well.

(*) Padborg is located just across the border to Germany and a short distance from Schackenborg.
Padborg is place very familiar with al Jutlanders as this is one of the places where we venture to regularly with our trailers in order to restock our supplies of beer and other nice things. It's cheaper in Germany.

Just to clarify. Padborg is a Danish town, and I would say that most of the "visitors" drive through Padborg to get across the border. Restocking in Padborg itself would be pretty dumb.

Thanks, nwinter Silly me.

The stores are just across the border. Old habit, we use to say: "Let's go to Padborg for some beer".

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2011.
Vild med fars racer-bil - Crazy about dad's racing-car.
Written by our motorsport reporter Ken Richter.

When Joachim was racing in Padborg recently, our Marie and bette Henrik accompanied him. Joachim incidentally won a first and second place in two heats.
Our reporter went for a closer look at Joachim's Cortina Lotus 1965 and found bette Henrik inside. Moving around, while chatting to himself holding a stuffed dog, named Plet = Spot and wearing a cool jacket resembling dad's racing suit.
In case the reporter hadn't noticed, Bette Henrik informed him: "Dad's car is white". This was bette henrik's debut at a race track and very helpfully he explained to the BB journalist that the three cars in team Cortina Racing are: "White, black and green".

- I hope these pics will turn up on the BB site shortly, they are really sweet.

We may have an explanation as to why we haven't seen much of our Marie lately: Beredskabsstyrelsen - Prinsesse Marie tilknyttet redningsberedskabet

According to Beredskabsstyrelsen (best translated to the Civil Defence) Princess Marie is now a fully trained member of the Civil Defence. I.e. she has graduated from "boot Camp".

Translation:
Princess Marie attached to the rescue emergency service (civil defence to make it simple).

24. June 2011.

On the 23. June Her Royal Highness Princess Marie recieved a diploma after finishing her introductury education in Beredskabsstyrelsen (*)
The Princess will now be attached to the Volunteer Deployment Force (DFI) (**) under Beredskabsstyrelsen central Jutland in the town of Herning.

Along with employees (***) from Beredskabsstyrelsen Princess Marie has been educated in among other things first aide, firefighting and communication and staff work.
The introductury education has lasted four weeks all together and that has taken place at Beredskabsstyrelsens Technical School in the town of Tinglev.
- "The Princess has shown exemplary dedication in all elements during the training period. Her participation is a big aknowledgment of the important work which is carried out by both volunteers and employees in the rescue emergency", says the manager of Beredskabsstyrelsen, Henning Thiesen.

Facts about the basic training:

The basic training consists of four modules/segments:

- The organisation of the rescue emergency and first aide.
- Fire (fighting).
- Rescue.
- Communication and staff work.

(*) Basic training.

(**) What beforehand was called a Civil Defence Column.

(***) That means she didn't train with conscripts but with newly employed professional members of the Civil Defence.
Training with conscripts would have been impractical as they stay in barracks during their basic training.

- Well done, Marie - Now all adult members of the DRF are or have been a part of the Total Defence.

Absolutely, congrats to Princess Marie on I'm sure four hard weeks of training!

.
Probably another aspect as that if the princess is not taken away immediately to a secure place in case of an emergency, once she arrives people will look up to her because of her elevated position in society. Thus it is good that she knows how the rescue forces operate and how to play a part at the center of it.

It's nice to know that she went through such training, you never know when it may come in good use.
Thanks Muhler for the translation.

There is no rule saying so and certainly not for princesses. There is a long and strong tradition for male members to serve in the army or navy and then remaining in the reserves.
One, Prince Aage, served in the Royal Lifeguard, then served in the reserves. Upon the death of his wife he joined the French Foreign Legion and saw action in Morocco. He stayed in the Legion until his death.
His body was among three which were brought to France and reburied there after the end of the Algerian War.

The DRF, as basically all other royal families, has a strong affilliation with the armed forces going back to the very beginning. Simply to maintain control. That was the case until the end of Absolutism in 1849.
At that time general conscription was introduced and maintained until the present day and with practically every male drafted it was natural that all male members of the DRF also served. Simply because it was considered appropriate and a normal thing to do.

Nowadays the armed force and the emergency services, including the Civil Defence is a part of the Total Defence force and every member of the Total Defence is either an employed professional or a volunteer. That now also applies to the conscripts as only around 8.000 are needed in the military nowadays. - I don't know the figures for the Civil Defence.
However, both the military, Home Guard and Civil Defence are eager to attract women and some opt for volunteer conscription.
Both Mary and our Marie are too old to opt for volunteer conscription, so they have chosen to be volunteers instead and thus being role models.
Unless conscription has been abolished or become mandatory for both sexes in fifteen years or so from now, I can easily imagine Isabella and later Josephine opting for volunteer conscription.

I believe Mary, in view of her position and many representative duties will mainly take on a role as "patron" of the Home Guard. Marie however could take on a more active role, we'll see.

You are welcome, Dazzling


A gallery from BT of our Marie during her basic traning: Se billederne: Prinsesse Marie i trøjen | www.bt.dk

I didn't know you could look feminine while wearing a gasmask.

Some of these pics should perhaps be used in Marie's day-wear thread?

I see her name tag says: Prinsesse Marie.
