Interesting question.

It was always the intention that M&F should take over Gråsten, but it may very well be that J&M vacating Schackenborg has speeded up that process.

But that doesn't mean M&F has that big a choice anyway for going to a warmer place in their summer holiday.
Once they become the regent couple, it is also almost certain that it will be very much expected of them to take up residence at Marselisborg to maintain the DRF affiliation with Aarhus. - They take that very serious in Aarhus!
So IMO M&F might just as well get used to every summer to hop around from Fredensborg to Marselisborg to Gråsten to Trend and back to Fredensborg. With perhaps one week going south to sun and beaches - at most and not every summer.

As long as the Regent Couple is alive and active M&F can skip Marselisborg in the summer, but that won't last.

I think Frederik and Mary have really formed a nice bond/home in Grasten. And not just because of obligation, which is important too to follow the Queen's tradition of gathering in Grasten.
They enjoy the quiet horseback riding and bike rides, and now their kids do too. they can go to legoland and other children friendly attractions (like we saw last summer) in relatively quietness. They seem to really enjoy the outdoor life. Similar to when they go to Trend.

I'm also quite so sure F&M uses Gråsten in their summer holiday of desire. And not by coercion. I honestly don't believe F&M don't even bother to travel in their family summer holiday. They travel much with their work. I know from my acquaintances who are often on business trips with their work that the very last thing they bother to do in their summer vacation is.. to travel more. The best thing is to just be at home and have time to relax. That is also what most young children prefer, me thinks. The CP-family seems to enjoy it to the maximum and seems to always prefer to keep their holiday at home in Denmark.
Like me.

That it also provides memories for Frederik, and they wish to take over Queen Ingrid's tradition are very likely. And it's a nice tradition that the Regent couple can be together with the CP-family and see their grandchildren for many days in a row.

Bella has apparently been practicing during the stay because she maneuvered the car around without problems. But outside the inner palace area (i.e. on roads, paths and lanes also used by the public and people working in the palace, and adult is required behind the wheel and here grandpapa took over.
In fact they were away so long that they only returned in the middle of the changing of the guard at noon.
The Music Corps of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment are on on holiday so the music came from the drummers and fifers. (They are conscripts).

It's great to see that the children are obviously very fond of their grandfather. Perhaps not least Josephine.

I think the dogs lend a little holiday-atmosphere to the whole event and also made it less solemn.
Thanks Muhler,
Nice little details.

A nice picture of Bella - our little golf car driver :)

Thanks to one & all for the pics and links!!

Love the group picture w/Christian holding his hand over his mouth to keep from giggling out loud over the dogs doing what they were doing.

And then there was Josephine...She is w/out a doubt Bella's little Jedi Apprentice. 😄😄😄

After the tragic news from Nice and the news from Turkey today...These were a badly needed pick me up.

Thanks for,all the lovely pic and explanations. Is it always that cold there in summer? And yes, with all their work travel, I agree they don't want to travel on vacation with kids, just to be"home"

It's not uncommon. That's coastal climate for you.
The most normal is 20-25 C, alternating between sunny days and rainy days.
But every three or four years is either blistering hot or cold and rainy like it is this year.

Thanks, Iceflower.

It seems like this year will enter the annals as the Year of the Dachshunds...

It seems like Vincent was about to follow the dogs out of the side entrance. (actually the entrance the DRF use on a daily basis while at Gråsten) That's the photo of Vincent standing flanked by PET.
Becaue BB wrote that the dogs darted out from that door.

You are going to enjoy this two minutes video from BB, especially those of you who have a soft spot for Bella and Josephine. VIDEO: Prinsesse Isabella overraskede på Gråsten | BILLED-BLADET

This takes place at noon, when the changing of the guards takes place, about twenty minutes or so after the photo session, so QMII has had time to change into something more comfortable.

As you know PH and an adjutant ran off with the children and they only returned when the changing of the guard took place, so the tambur-major had to step back to let PH pass.
While Bella followed behind.

After the official photoshoot Josephine played fetch with her brother, throwing a tennis ball - oh, a dog also played along...

That final shot of Josephine hamming it up while dancing is just great!

You can say what you want about Prince Henrik but he certainly seems a loving and fun grandfather!

I'm sure they'll be able to sneak off to tropical beaches if they want to, they'll just do so without anyone knowing it and at another timing. If it hadn't been for that credit card scandal a couple of years ago no tabloid would have caught wind of their stay in Thailand (or was it some other place?) with the kids either I guess.

What a thrill little video! You can't but just sit back with a smile on your face.

Isabella really rocking that golf cart and Josephine's dance moves at the end is really like watching Bella at that age.

The genes can't be denied in the CP family.. Neither Christian and Vincent who in physics are so similar to their father.

I've never thought to ask - what mode of travel does the family generally use as they move from this house to that one? Auto, I'm assuming? Rail?

In this case the Regent Couple sailed aboard Dannebrog to the town of Sønderborg and was driven to Gråsten from there.

M&F likely drove either from Copenhagen or Trend.

The Berleburgs would have driven. Benedikte usually drive from Berleburg to Copenhagen and just like most Germans don't consider that an issue. Not on the autobahns there.

The photo of the dachshunds couldn't be more perfect if it had been photoshopped.

A TV2 gallery: Prins Joachim blev væk: Se Kongefamiliens sommerbilleder fra Gråsten - TV 2

Bella drove the golf-car. That's one of the great things about being with your grandparents (and uncles) you are often allowed to do things your parents say no to.
Thanks Muhler! Agree about the dachshund photo and feel that a caption contest is called for. After all the troubles in southern Europe, let the North be a source of laughter and delight! Here's my entry and a challenge to forum members and guests....
"...Danish summers are really full of s..t"

It is confirmed that the DRF, including M&F and children will be present at the ringrider procession tomorrow Sunday.
Tarzan skal hilse på Mary | Sønderborg | jv.dk
Because this is the story about six year old Sasha, who rides Tarzan. She will take part in the procession tomorrow.
And Josephine has borrowed Sasha's riding boots while at Gråsten, because the two girls share the same size.

- So keep a lookout for a girl around six who may have a special rapport with Josephine tomorrow.

Thanks for the many photos and links, the photos show a loving and happy family.

Have just seen a small clip on the Today breakfast show on channel nine, it looked very windy and cold but everyone looked to be enjoying the time with each other.
The photos of Vincent and Josephine bringing the flowers to Mary are so sweet. I think we have seen Vincent do these before, perhaps in Greenland
