Summary of note in Billed Bladet #22, 2014.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.
At 15.00 Friday afternoon Frederik and Haakon took part in a remembrance service at Roskilde Cathedral in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution.
A couple of hundred people, mostly women, it was noted, stood outside the church and according to our reporter they were not disappointed!
I quote Ulrik Ulriksen: Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Norway's Crown Prince Haakon are a couple of good looking guys who attract a lot of attention -
- Also a couple of hundred enthusiastic local fans, in particular many women, had showed up in front of the church in order to see the two crown princess. No one was disappointed, because Frederik and Haakon looked fantastic in their grand uniforms and on top of that the two gentlemen smiled and waved a lot to their many fans. - End quote.
Upon leaving they both thanked the bishop, Haakon said: "Thank you for a good experience and a grand celebration of the day".
But others had the pleasure of seeing Frederik in his full dress uniform that day.
The Navy Museum in Copenhagen was to open a new exhibition. And it was Frederik who opened it. Frederik opted to sail to the museum and that meant that he in full uniform, complate with sabre, medals and adjutant strolled out from Amalienborg, delighting quite a few tourists, went across a street, through a very small garden and down to the quay. Some 150 meters or so. Where the chaluppe from Dannebrog was waiting.
At the museum he opened the exhibition and together with the Danish Minister for Defence as well as the Norwegian ambassador he was guided through the exhibtion. Which as the theme had Denmark and Norways common history from a double monarchy to the present day seafaring nations. And manily from a naval perspective.
- There is actually a very good pic of Frederik in the article but I don't think I dare show it here. There are members (I need not name names) who won't be able to handle it...
