While we are enjoying the pictures coming in from M&F visiting USA, here is a clip of a very annoyed Joachim racing in Aarhus: Se prins Joachim gå amok - Royale - BT.dk

He is racing with another car when his car malfunctions and he is not pleased!

Upon leaving the cat he utters a very loud: "Piss"!

When he has regained his composure, he explains: "All of a sudden it says: puf, and then there's steam all over the place. Then the car starts to run sideways. It could have ended up in something really messy".

- Without being a psycologist, I wonder if Joachim letting his other side out while racing, isn't a natural and even healthy thing to do for a man, who is usually known for being in control and composed?

It's sad to see the photos of Caroline Fleming and Nicklas Bendtner leaving
the church. Their body language is cold enough to trigger a new ice age!

Okay, Billed Bladet #43, 2011 has hit the streets.

Unsurprisingly the coverage of M&F's visit to New York is the top story.
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1330791

There is an article about bette Henrik being ill. That has already been covered.

Princess Tatiana herself confirmed that she's pregnant.
Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana current events: August 2010 -

There is a Q&A about why our Marie is patron of Syddansk Universitet, as she doesn't live in Odense on the island of Funen.

The Stylefinder deals with the ring worn by Mary on her right hand at Christian's first day to school. - The ring, or rather rings are by Ole Lynggaard, they consist of five combined rings. Two of the rings are curved, three are straight. The stones are brilliants. Each ring costs 11.500 DKK (1$ = 5 DKK). - I wonder if that price is for a combination of five rings? Because 5 X 11.500 DKK sounds a bit pricey!!

We also have a story about the Regent Couple to a party at Helle Stangerup who is living in a posh part of Copenhagen.

And we have this:

A translation of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #43, 2011.
Where Marianne Carlsen asks: In a reality show on TV3+ Joachim is seen in a sportssuit with numerous company logos on. Can he allow himself to so massively advertise for private companies?

Jon Bloch Skipper replies:
In my opinion it's one of those areas where the members of the Royal Family should think very carefully.
The DRF should be accused of being in the pocket of specific companies and thereby represent special interests within commerce. The royal institution should be above the ordinary rules - also in the commercial field.
For that very same reason the royals should think very carefully before they accept gifts, services or benefits, which are not available to ordinary people.
The legitimacy of the DRF can vanish if Danish commerce in general do not feel themselves represented by the institution or if the majority of the Danes can no longer identify themselves with the members of the DRF.

- I like that Jon Bloch Skipper deals with controversial issues in connection with the DRF, in contrast to his predecessor.
In this case I do not agree with him. I believe he "is painting the Devil on the wall" (idiom meaning that he's really tolling the doomsday bells).
Joachim is a member of a racing team, he is competing as a private person against all the other teams. Even royals should be allowed to have a hobby.
Not to mention that is widely known that the DRF do get lots of benefits not available to ordinary Danes. Like the private tiaras of both Mary and la belle Marie. The cars used not least by Joachim and Frederik and so on.

I don't know what's wrong with me - but I fail to notice such things. To me, a "clean" racing attire would be more "off" than a sponsor-covered suit.

IMO it's perfectly cool. Although Joachim is my favourite of the two brothers, I realize - and so does the rest of the country - that his role is fading. He'll have to make his own living (although sponsor-racingoutfits are nitpicking IMO) with only a minor support from the state, and his children all the more so.

The balance is making a living and "milking the princely title for all it's worth" is difficult, and IMO, Joachim has a very dignified yet sensible approach to this situation.

Just wondering- I know Amalienborg consists of four different palaces, one for the Queen, one for Frederik and Mary, and one for important guests to stay.

What about Joachim and Marie? Do they have the fourth one when they're in Copenhagen, or do they live someplace else?

J&M have an apartment above the museum, which is located in the fourth mansion. So has Benedikte.
FasterB told us about that in one of the other threads.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #51, 2011.
Marie og Joachim i sorg - Marie and Joachim grieving.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Adam Siesbye, the father of Joachim's very good freind, Oscar Siesbye died recently and a number of friends and relatives gathered at a private memorial at Adam Siesbye's apartment.
Present were naturally Joachim and Marie, but also Alexandra and Martin Jørgensen. Alexandra has known the Siesbye's since she came to Denmark.

Our Marie has been interviewed by the very serious newspaper, Jyllands Posten, which being a paper that is very much focused on commerce doesn't usually deal that much with the DRF.
I often buy Jyllands Posten myself but I didn't get this issue.

Anyway, BT has written a couple of articles with excerpts from the interview.
En frustreret mor er ikke en god mor - Royale - BT.dk
Så hårdt arbejder Marie og Joachim til dagligt - Royale - BT.dk

It's not always possible to take bette Henrik with them when J&M and being away from her son can be a bit hard for Marie:
"Especially when we are away for a longer period, then I'm having a guilty conscience and I miss him. It's hard not to be frustrated but (it is also) very important to find a balance. A frustrated mother is not a good mother. I love to be a mother and I love to be home, but I need other stimuli (as well). I can't just sit around thinking about my family, when I have the opportunity to help other people".

Marie has selected the organisations she wished to be patron for carefully.
"The biggest priviledge is, that you as a princess, can create attention about important issues. That I have the opportunity to make a difference!. I have for example become patron for the AIDS Foundation recently. which I look incredibly much forward to. There are so many hiv-afflicted, who live in loneliness due to prejudices, because there are afraid of the reactions of others. There are still too many who die and way too many are children. It's still an illness that is seen as a tabu. That I would like to create awareness about".

Education is also one of her interests.
"I work with Southern Danish University in having foreign students going to Denmark. I believe very much in international environments for studying. It broadens your horizon.
I've learned an incredibly lot by working and staying abroad". (*)

The life Marie and her Joachim live is not that far removed from ordinary people.
"Life as princess is certainly different from the fairy tales. My husband wasn't a frog when I kissed him the first time. (**) Today princesses work. They are more independent in their choices. They do of course have a big responsibillity in representing the DRF. We would like to help, where we can and work for our country. This is something I do with pleasure".

Marie is fine with shifting between Schackenborg and Copenhagen all the time:
"I love the city and to be in contact with many people, but I really need to be out in the nature (as well) and be a bit protected (***). That's why it's so fantastic to be here. We are after all often at Amalienborg in Copenhagen in connection with meetings and official duties. I feel I get thet best from two worlds".

The day at Schackenborg begin early in the morning. Marie prepares breakfast to the family, before taking bette Henrik to the nursery. Then she returns to the office on the second floor of the manor.
Joachim's day at the office rarely ends before 17.30.
"Schackenborg is a business, which demands a big effort and a lot of our time. Apart from that I have many meetings with protections and organisations I work with all over the country and in particular in Copenhagen. In fact we do spend a lot of time travelling (on the road) back and forth. So when we are at home, there is a lot to do in connection with running Schackenborg".

Marie admits that her knowledge of agriculture is pretty limited so instead she works with Joachim on the business side of the firm.
"Apart from my protections and official duties I also focus on Schackenborg. My husband and I work really well together. I work more on the business-side, because I haven't got much experience with agriculture. But we do exchange opinions, talk about strategies and new products. It's teamwork".

In their sparetime they go for a walk around the manor or cook.
"The meal means a lot, also to Henrik, and we love to cook together. Is the weather really bad, we watch a movie or read a book, when we have time, but we haven't got that much time. Time is a precious commodity, so it's important to prioritize".

(*) And now we have established la charmant Marie's favourite expression: incredibly.
For Mary it's fantastic and for QMII it's amusing.

(**) I cannot resist: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-XUeY3205UF...FrogPrince.jpg

(***) Even though she's mistress of the manor, to the locals she's also one of them, and you don't bother, stare at, photograph or give away one of your own.

Thank you for the translation Muhler.

Marie seems quite comfortable and at ease in her role now. Balancing that with motherhood seems to be something she has resolved too. Never easy whether Princess or commoner!

I am looking forward to the new baby arriving!
