Thanks Ilse & Iceflower.

As you may know PH and a number of his friends went hunting a few days ago on the island of Bornholm.
While there a local woman studying to be a nurse hitchhiked as she use to to get to her school.
A car with a number of gentlemen dressed in hunting attire pulled over and she jumped in on the passenger seat. Looking around she thought she recognized some of the gentleman and sure enough there was PH at the wheel.

PH is getting a lot of positive coverage in BB these weeks! - Well, that's what friends are for, eh? And the cynic within me suspects an exclusive interview coming up around PH's birthday in return.

Summary of several articles in Billed Bladet #21, 2015.

On 14th May, Ascension of Christ, PH took QMII and their friends, Birgitta and Keld Hillingsø, to the Tivoli Concert Hall to see the show with Ørkenens Sønner = Sons of the Desert (*). PH has seen them before, completely cracking up.
Very appropriately, or perhaps not, the title of the show is One more time for Prince Knud. Referring to a popular belief back around 1950 that the then heir to the throne Prince Knud was a bit slow... So that expression has remained an idiom since.
Niels Olsen, a member of the group and immensely popular here in DK, said afterwards: "They were at least so kind to pretend" (to like the show) He goes on to tell that people actually spontaneous rose and applauded the Regent Couple as they entered. (**) "That sort of give the whole thing a fresh spark and such a mood can be felt all the way up to the stage, so we nailed it to the floor". Niles Olsen also believe that QMII could handle the show: "We are not that naughty and bad... I think".
During the intermission the Regent Couple went backstage to greet the quartet: "That was a really fine experience, but we did only get water, because we had to go down to the second part of the show right after. But it was really cozy and very, very delightful that they came. And we are of course wildly honored".

But PH has also been on the job, sort of, lately. Recently he went to Funen to inaugurate an education center run by a good friend of his, Claudia Sehested Juul and her daughter. What are friends for, right?
As Sehested belongs to the distinguished Danish families (Sehested was a general during the Schleswigan Wars) the event attracted other members of the nobillity and others within the circle around the Regent Couple, like the Ahelefeldt Lauervig's.

He has also been hunting on Bornholm with some of the "old boys". But perhaps they had enjoyed a night cap too many, because they arrived a little late (the sun goes up at 04.50 at this time of year) so the deers had long since done their morning routine and only one deer was shot. That didn't spoil the mood though and the male banter continued.
The reporter from BB, Trine Larsen, had her birthday at that time, so she was congratulated and presented with a signed book by PH with his poems.
In fact PH went to a local church, Øster (East) Marie Church, where he read aloud from his poems. (***)

Judging from comments and from what I hear on the streets it seems to me that PH has been largely forgiven for his untimely flu during QMII's birthday. The sentiment being something like: grandpa has misbehaved again... Oh well, at least the old guy ain't dull.

(*) Ørkenens Sønner is a quartet of friends who some twenty years ago got together to make a show simply for the fun of it. Being very accomplished actors in their own right already back then, it meant that they can actually sing and act. In fact their entire show is one big innuendo. - And that proves that while PH speaks "circus Danish" his understanding of Danish is perfect, otherwise he would miss half of what goes on during the show.
It is unfortunately not possible for me to translate some of their word plays and at the same time do them justice.
Here is a video with three of them at calisthenics. Watch it if you think you can handle all that testosterone... You need not understand a word of Danish. Those among you who watch Danish Tv-shows may recognize Søren Pilmark:


(**) A clear indication that the DRF is popular. Because a common thing would be to allow the Regent Couple to be left alone as they were there as private persons.
Those who go see Ørkenens Sønner are a very wide segment of the population from the unemployed blue collar worker to the highly paid attorney.

(***) The churches on Bornholm are unique in Denmark and I believe in the Baltic region. They are round. I don't know why and I'm not sure whether such churches exist outside Bornholm in the Baltic. (Perhaps FasterB can help?)
Here are a couple of pics of round churches:

I cannot help posting this here, even though it may be somewhat off topic, but this is partly very fascinating but also something I positively know QMII has read with burning interest!

The papers have today written about a scientific examination of one of the most well known Bronze Age corpses ever to have been found here in DK. (And we have quite a few of them I might add!)

The Egtved Girl as she is known.

Map:
http://videnskab.dk/sites/all/files/...23.40.29_0.png
She was found in 1921 inside a burial mound in Southern Jutland. Laid to rest inside a oak tree coffin, she must have belonged to the upper class of society back then. There is nothing left of her but bones - and her hair and clothes!
Living around 3.400 years ago that has provided an almost unique insight into female attire. And this what she wore:
http://videnskab.dk/sites/all/files/...edpigen_01.jpg
She was only sixteen-eighteen years old when she died. At her feet lay the remains of small child, some six years old. A close relative, but it is not clear whether the child is her own or a sibling.

But now we come to the most interesting bit: The last 23 months of her life has now been mapped based on her hair. And her origin has been determined based on her teeth.
Even though she was blond and looked archetypical Nordic,(*) she is not. She was born in the area of Scwartzwald some 800 KM to the south. (see map)
Not only that but during the last 23 months of her life, she went to Schwartzwald and back! That's pretty impressive, especially considering that it was over land and not by sea.
Even though they most likely followed the rivers most of the time it's still some journey! (3.400 years ago central Europe was densely forested and with few if any real tracks for longer distances on foot). At some point during that journey she was on the brink of starvation.
A theory is that she was married to a local chieftain in Denmark to cement trade relations between the Danish tribe and the people the Egtved Girl belonged to and that she physically must have confirmed that relation by going on these trips several times in her short life. Somewhat unusual you should think for a woman, because such a trip is not without danger, especially if she happened to be pregnant.

There are other examples of people who have moved far around that time. Like Ötzi or the Archer found near Stonehenge, but they were men, who may have had specialist talents. And as men they would not necessarily have had to worry about being pregnant or having an infant in the arms, so they could afford to be mobile. But now it seems women were just as mobile.

Read more in Danish here: Sensationel afsløring: Egtvedpigen er ikke dansk | Videnskab.dk

(*) Archetypical Nordic in the sense of being blonde with fair skin. Interestingly her neighbors here in the north would only have been Nordic looking for some 3.000 years prior to her death. Until around 6.000 years ago when agriculture became the norm here in the north, the typical skincolor would have been various shades of brown. That changed due to the change in diet so that people lacked IIRC vitamin D, which they now had to absorb through the skin, hence a fairer skin color.

Muhler thank you as always for the translations and the extra information you always include.

Henrik is lucky that he is older and pretty much at the age, you are left alone and "forgiven" for any mishaps.

I think he being a loving grandpa has helped his image alot

"One more time for Prince Knud" LOL!

Well, not only because he was a bit slow, but... Prince Knud and Princess Caroline-Mathilde went to see a ballet, where in there was a nudity/somewhat nudity scene. When the director of the theatre after the ballet asked if the Prince Couple was satisfied with the play Pss Caroline-Mathilde answered that they couldn´t see it all from the royal box. So the Director insisted the ballet danced the nudity scene for only for the Prince Couple. The year after this episode was a big part of the "Cirkusrevy" where the actress Birgitte Reimer sang: "Så tager vi den en gang til for Prins Knud"

Oh Dear I did enjoy that comedy on Orkenens Sonner. Always appreciate a good laugh. Her Majesty is very generous for those poor dear souls in Nepal. So sad to see what they are going through.

As this only indirectly is about the upcoming Swedish wedding I have decided to place this here: Prins Henrik bliver hjemme fra svensk prinsebryllup | TV 2 Fri

The Danish media have noticed that PH is not going to the wedding and he is probably going to get some heat for that. The PR office will not say why he isn't going. But then the Norwegian King isn't going either...
And as far as I understand will be in England on the day of the wedding, aboard Danneborg.

Would he set sail on the Danneborg to the Faroe Islands? how long does it take the ship to get there?

I don't know. She isn't a particularly fast ship. A few days?

He may get onboard the ship in England and sail on from there. It is also well known that PH usually go for a couple of short trips with Dannebrog before the summer cruises. Gives the conscript crew a chance to practice before the real thing.

'Dannebrog' fik problemer i Den Engelske Kanal: Prins Henrik sov fra det hele - Royale | www.bt.dk

BT has a story about Dannebrog having to go into harbor in Southampton.

While on the way to the Isle of Wright, where Prince Phillip has invited PH to attend a sailing revue, Dannebrog developed problems with one of her engines and that meant she could only go at half speed and also was less able to withstand the rough sea.
That does not seem to bother PH who was sleeping through it all.

But the engine is expected to have been repaired tomorrow Thursday, which means PH can sail to Isle of Wright.
Later she will sail on to the French town of La Rochelle, where they will stay a couple of days.

- So this is the annual shake-down routine before the summer cruises.
