I admired the way everyone just carried on regardless of the rain which, at times, bucketed down. I don't think anyone smiled less or enjoyed themselves less because of the rain. And lovely to see Daisy's Holiday raincoat and matching hat. I really don't know what the holdup is . . . I wrote and told her it was mine years ago.

I also admire Daisy's acceptance of her limitations and someone trails behind with a folding chair and cushion. But it seems that her condition is progressing and will limit her more and more, but with scenes like that, it doesn't matter as it makes no difference.

Over 12.000 thousands of likes and nice comments on TV2 News Facebook to always dancing Isabella and Josephine

https://www.facebook.com/tv2nyhedern...5305283991233/

**

A great TV2 article: New tones in Gråsten - is the Crown Prince Couple starting a tradition?
Nye toner i Gråsten - er kronprinsparret ved at starte en tradition? - TV 2

Chief editor of the Billedbladet, Annemette Krakau, believes that the Crown Prince couple are starting a new tradition.

- Last summer, the summer photo session lasted two minutes and took place on a windblown staircase. They came out and then they went back in. This year it lasted a more than a half an hour. I think it was great to see the Crown Prince family together with Queen Margrethe and as part of this festival in Gråsten, she says, and continues:

- I have a feeling that it is a new tradition they are starting. It is completely in line with Queen Ingrid and King Frederik at their time, who also made a big deal out of being in contact with the Southern Jutland's people, the traditions and being part of the cityscape.

The editorial editor hopes that in the future this will happen again. In this way where the royal family give them good time to be part of the local events.

- It's a super signal they send by being part of the People's Party, says Annemette Kraków.


ADDED:
I very much agree. This way is much better, funnier and more natural than those set photo session

Sverre Magnus is another type, but there is a difference between this and standing at the door at Skaugum and then on the balcony in Oslo for several hours on May. 17th. And I don't think this is a competition about smiling and handsomeness between two eleven-year-old boys.

Wow, thanks to everyone who contributed coverage of the event! The pictures and videos were fun to go through. I love how all the family members present, from Margrethe on down to the twins, are comfortable and having a great time despite, or maybe because of, the slightly chaotic nature of the event, (someone shattered a bottle of wine)!?

The kids are happy and fun loving without getting out of control or playing to the cameras. And they're not nervous or uncomfortable being the focus of attention, despite some of them being more naturally outgoing than others. As related to the discussion in one of the British threads, I think if William and Catherine were looking for role models for how to introduce their children to royal life they could do worse than emulating Frederick and Mary's overall approach. They've struck a nice middle ground between too much coverage and attention on one hand and hiding the children away on the other.

A modern Crown Prince family with four children has moved into Gråsten Castle. It looks very cute with the official Crown Prince's flag on the flagpole and then a bouncy castle with cartoon character as contrast

I remember a Danish journalist who was very critical towards the Danish monarchy. She criticized everything by the monarchy and its members. But she admitted that she though Frederik and Mary were fantastic to be parents and that she admired the way they were parents to a royal child.

And I totally agree. And I can also see it is why so many love F&M's children. They are well-behaved children, but at the same time so free, happy, natural, harmonious children full of life and personality. And they seem very confident. In spite of especially Christian's role, he has from the very start seemed to be born for his role. A confident, relaxed and happy boy.

Now that is a cute picture royal or not, a bouncy castle is always fun. The family looks to have a nice, relaxing and fun summer so far in Grasten. Horseback riding, bike rides and jumping in bouncy castles.

We can hope Joachim and our Marie will make a similar shoot, probably somewhere in France. That's happened often before when they haven't been there for the Gråsten photo shoot.

If I remember correctly the crown princely family attended the horse parade 2 years ago (when Josephine had a broken arm) and there was another photo shoot in the garden with the Queen, Prince Henrik and some of the Berleburg family.

It has also happened when they have made it to Grasten
Joachim usually giving his own summer session along with joining the family at Grasten. Although the last two years and this year it appears, he has not made it to Grasten.

Hopefully we do get some pictures of Joachim and family. Hopefully with all 4 kids. Although it must be hard to coordinate vacations with his older boys, who I imagine also holiday with their mom. And as they are near 18 and 15 maybe joining their friends on holiday.

Alas, M&F have now left Gråsten, so that's it for this year.

And I can't imagine QMII and the Berleburgs would pose for themselves. Assuming there are any Berleburgs around now, apart form Benedikte.

No. This year the horse parade with the Regent Couple and the Crown Prince family was at the same time the yearly summer photo session
Last year was great with two photo session, but probably a little much and the DRF have likely decided that two photo session with a day between was unnecessary.

This will probably be a new tradition :)
Read my previous post:

Thank you for the update Muhler.
It's a pity we didn't get a formal photoshoot like last year, but that isn't anyone's fault (apart from Mother Nature!). Still; we got lots of charming photos from the horse parade.

I was expecting a photo session we usually get with all the family members. Please tell me there will be another one (which we are use to).
