Muhler! With that colour red on board, Dannebrog does not need radar because she can be seen from miles away!

That's right.
As you may have noticed Prince Henrik is almost always wearing uniforms onboard Dannebrog, rather than his usual colourful attire.
That is now standard practice since Danish Ornithological Association (DOA) six years ago made the navy aware of the alarming number of traumatized and suicidal seagulls in the wake of Dannebrog on her summer cruises.

Undercover agents from DOA investigated the phenomenon and figured out the cause. - Prince Henrik.

Its true, I've read it on the Net - or perhaps I dreamed it...

Thanks, Iceflower.

It's become a tradition for Prince Henrik to attend the boat season and there is no doubt that he is genuinely enjoying himself.

Da Kierkegaard røg i flæsket på Andersen | Videnskab.dk
As it so happens Søren Kierkegaard had an almighty feud going on with H.C. Andersen!
When H.C. Andersen published his novel "Only a fiddler" in 1837, Søren Kierkegaard wrote a review of no less than 90 pages! Where he completely thrashed the novel and labelled H.C. Andersen as immature and without talent.
H.C. Andersen was genuinely hurt and retorted by referring tauntingly to Søren Kierkegaard in later works.

Then all of a sudden, and no one knows why, they became good friends and H.C. Andersen became an admirer of Søren Kierkegaard.

And the one who won the honorary prize was the movie director Susanne Bier. Dronning Margrethes herlige håndværkerfest

I read a couple of days ago that she is very busy in USA right now, so I guess we can expect something from her soon.

Apart from that 72 newly educated artisans recieved medals and grants at Copenhagen town hall.

Billed Bladet has published this video of Prince Henrik out with the friends in the Tivoli Club - unsurprisingly it took place in Tivoli, Copenhagen.



It looks to me to ahve been a typical Danish social event. People sitting around the tables for a few hours, enjoing the "big cold table" (= smorgasboard and schnapps) while singing several (more or less successful) home-composed songs. Listening to a couple of speeches and someone telling jokes, while downing a wee schnapps - or five. With a lot of chatting going on and perhaps someone playing in the background.
I thought he moved a little carefully when he walked to the car and got into the car. Perhaps his back is causing trouble? - Or he drank too much lunch...

Prince Henrik inaugurated earlier on Saturday the exhibition "Följ Hjärtat" in Stockholm. I haven't seen any photos yet of this event.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #23, 2013.
Henrik på herretur - Henrik on a guys night out.
Written by reporter about town, Helle Skram de Friis.

Recently Prince Henrik and a number of his good friends went on their annual pilgrimage to Bakken, a very old fun fair in Copenhagen. (*)
That includes a good lunch with plenty of liquid to wash it down and entertainment by Bakken's Singing Girls. (**)
The songs are full of innuendoes and it requires only a very little stretch of the imagination to find them naughty.
There is also a lot of cheeky interaction between the guests, not least Prince Henrik and the girls. And it has become mandatory for Prince Henrik to show his appreciation by putting notes down the garter of the girls. Actually the owner of the establishment, Dot Wessman, who also attended Count Christian's funeral.
Prince Henrik sitting next to his good friend, Christian Kjær, was cracking up with laugther. Not least when Christian wanted to put money down the garter of Dot Wessman. She asked loudly, whether he even had some left... - Christan Kjær is right now going through a very costly divorce.

Christian Eugen Olsen, with his wife was also present.

When he left Prince Henrik said: "It has been a very funny, cosy and beautiful evening".

(*) While Tivoli was for tourists and respectable citizens, Bakken was for the common, and usually far from sober, man and his family. The entertainment there was also less, shall we say, cultural than in Tivoli.
Bakken was certainly not a place decent people showed themselves.

(**) The girls singing now are fully professionel singers. However some 80 years ago they were not!
They were ladies of ill repute. - And to put it bluntly, some of them had gone past their expiry date on the sidewalk and ended up at bakken, where they, helped by liquour and the fact that the audience was hardly sober either, sang a number of lewd songs with more enthusiam than talent.
They were also fully capable of answering back, should someone among the audience be too cheeky. And that in a way so even hardened sailors would blush.
- Now all this has become nostalgia and culture.

Thanks for the pics.

A rare glimpse inside the hunting-palace. It sure looks good. Any locals planning on going to see the place during the summer?
