Summary of article in Billed Bladet #32, 2010.
Prinsen af Rømø - The Prince of Rømø.
Written by Ken Richter.
A decidely pregnant looking Prince Henrik visited the wadden sea around the island of Rømø at the south west coast of Jutland, not far from Schackenborg.
Here he was collecting oysters with some friends. (*) And a small feats was prepared in a tent.
Henrik is very fond of this part of DK. (**) He exclaimed two years ago: "Here I could live for the rest of my life".
This year he said: "I enjoy to come out to all nooks and crannies of the country, outside the big cities".
QMII's LiW added: "It's almost as when I gather mushrooms with the Queen at Trend. You get so preoccupied that you almost forget everything else and you do not keep an eye on where you are going at all. All the time a new mushroom turn up - in this case oysters - a bit further ahead and you just want to bring that home as well".
Henrik was here last time the day before the wedding between Joachim and our Marie with his sister, who is a nun. He said anumber of local islanders: "It's been a fantastic day and I hope I will some other time have the opportunity to give my family this utterly unique experience".
(*) Not for the first time. I remember an article a couple of years ago where he was absolutely enthusiastic about these oysters.
(**) He is not alone. When the tide is low you can walk for kilometres across the wadden sea. It's completely flat and the sky and horizon is endlessly far away. There are a multitude of birds there! Birds you won't see outside the wadden sea.
But, everything has a price. Each year cows, sheep and tourists are caught by the tide. You think you have plenty of time to walk to higher ground, but you don't realise how far out you are and suddenly you have to run. The water is cold, you won't make it to shore before hypothermia sets in.
