How about next month?
Aren't Vincent and Josephine to start in school this year?

That means they will pose in front of Amalienborg with their new school bags. - And answer questions from the press.

We usually gets a more formal photo session with the Regent couple, the Crown Prince Family and the Berleburgs. But as the Berleburgs could not be there so early this year I think the DRF has decided that the horse parade photo session and another photo session the next day with the same members was unnecesary.

In the future I think we will have the horse parade with the Regent couple and Crown Prince familiy. And then a more formal photo session if the Berleburgs also comes in mid july.

(Joakim and his family have not been at Gråsten the last 2-3years, and before that only some years, and seems to prefer their own holiday, so I don't count on them.)

I really hope so
Imagine seeing the twins with each of their schoolbag answering the press' questions. Will be cute.

But both with Christian and Bella we got press release in february.
And now we are in mid july. I tends to think we instead will get a video or a photo of them on their first school day at Facebook. Just a guess.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #29, 2017.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Well, you pretty much know what went on during the procession on Sunday. - It rained a bit and QMII was the one who in every possible way was best dressed for the occasion. Even some of the flowers she was presented matched her raincoat.
Mary was at some point presented with treats, called Treats, for Gracie.
QMII was presented with flowers and a bottle of redwine, which she accidentally dropped: "I'm sorry". - "That's all right", replied the mounted presenter of the present. The shards of glass were quickly removed by a servant, being bad for hoofs and tires.

J&M were not present. They are on holiday in southern France, with Henrik and Athena.
With them are their close friends Christian and Agnete Scherfig as well as Peter and Henriette Steenstrup.

The Ring-Riding Tournament at Gråsten toll several days, culminating in the processions in Sunday. In the days prior to that they skewered rings at a nearby square for the purpose and when the tournament ended, it was time for a family-party Saturday evening. So on the Saturday afternoon the contestant rode through Gråsten. The main street going through Gråsten pass the palace, and from here first Frederik with the children emerged through a door in the wall. Later to be joined by Mary. Vincent was made in charge of the key to the door. - That's the green thing he's seen holding in the photos.
The children spotted several they have gotten to know at the local riding school, during their stay at Gråsten. And they were pointed out to their parents. Something Josephine pointed out, seemed to impress Vincent very much. (See photo).
One girl among the 300 riders passing by, was heard telling a friend next to her: "Look there. That's the Crown-princely Couple and their children. We are going to present flowers to them tomorrow, when we ride past the palace".

Josephine was seen wearing a dress, previously worn by Isabella.

Here is this weeks issue of BB: BB #29, 2017

And last weeks, as you can tell Victoria is pretty popular in DK as well.

Thanks, Iceflower & Eya.

Yes, there is a changing of the guards, complete with with a section of the Music Corps every Friday at noon, when QMII is present at Gråsten.

That's always a crowd pleaser, not least among those who have (mostly) sons in the guards detachment serving there. Here they can be pretty certain to spot their son/grandchild/brother and snap away - and they do!
On a day to day basis they can't know for certain when he will be on guard duty and where.

Thanks for the scan Muhler

I enjoyed seeing the pictures at F&M and children privately to the horse parade on Saturday. They obvious all enjoyed it. Christian and Bella has grown so much, and the pictures of Vincent and Josephine chatting, and who both look very interested in the horses at the street, are very cute

I think all four children grows fast, Christian has grown so tall and now on his way into the teen years soon And little Vincent and Josephine has grown a lot as well - they have left the chubby toodler look now and have become two beautiful school ready children. But Isabella has IMO grown so much. Not only taller, but on other points too. She is a beautiful and happy girl.

Christian must start in 6. klasse (6th grade) after the summer vacation, right?
Isabella in 4. klasse (4th grade)?

And Vincent and Jospehine begin in 0. klasse (0th grade.)

How time flies!

Three delightful articles during the quiet private summer vacation time:

1. Princess Isabella and now also little Princess Josephine with their grandmother's gold bracelet:

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...35227816664642

When Princess Isabella turned five years old back in 2012, she received a sweet gold bracelet from her grandmother Queen Margrethe. Now we can see that also little sister Princess Josephine wears the special gold bracelet from grandmother. At this summer's photo session at Gråsten last week, the bracelet was spotted at little Princess Josephine's arm.

The simple gold bracelet shows that Princess Isabella and Princess Josephine now have become big girls who have the right to wear the family's traditional jewelery.

It was Queen Ingrid who introduced the tradition to the family. She herself got a gold bracelet of her mother on her fifth birthday in 1915. Just five years later, her mother, the English-born Princess Margaret, died, and the bracelet was a lovely memory for Ingrid.

When Queen Ingrid had three daughters, Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne-Marie, she decided that on their fifth birthday they should have a bracelet similar to her.

The small original bracelets have been carefully saved, and Queen Margrethe, Queen Anne-Marie and Princess Benedikte have continued the tradition. Since Queen Margrethe has no daughters who could take over her bracelet, she has now given her bracelet to the daughters of the Crown Prince. And Princess Isabella and Princess Josephine are proudly seen with the bracelet.

I think grandmother's bracelet has now been inherited from Isabella to Josephine because Isabella probably can no longer fit it.

2.
Princess Isabella celebrated her 10 years birthday this year and she held her first summer holiday at Gråsten Slot only 3 months old. Since then, Bella has spent summer holiday on Gråsten with her family all years. For this reason, Billedbladet has made this sweet gallery of Isabella's 10 years at Gråsten:


30 SØDE BILLEDER: 10 år med prinsesse Isabella i Gråsten | BILLED-BLADET


3.
"Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Ingrid photographed at Marselisborg Castle on a summer day in 1935 shortly after their wedding. This week, summer pictures are published from the Queen's private archive at the Royal Family's Instagram Profile." Kongehuset ©"


https://www.instagram.com/p/BXAOxPKg...kongehus&hl=da

A very great picture IMO.
Notice also the many comments about how many people who see Frederik & Mary in Frederik and Ingrid
Like the last comment:

How warm at heart you get by seeing the love that exists between them. An immensely beautiful couple. And there is a direct connection to our present crown prince couple who radiate the same love for each other. It's like seeing Frederik & Mary. Thank you for this picture!

Dronningen kom på privat visit | BILLED-BLADET

BB reports that QMII along with some friends visited the Wadden Sea Center near the town of Ribe.
The center was opened not that long ago by Joachim.

The mood was pretty informal and relaxed. the party was guided around the center and afterwards they a lunch.
QMII, in her usual style, said to our reporter: "We learned a lot, we didn't know, we didn't know".

Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte attended a concert by the vocal ensemble Musica Ficta under the direction of conductor Bo Holten at Gråsten Castle Church this afternoon, July 29. In connection with this year's Reformation Anniversary music of the Reformation was performed with Lutheran hymn songs from Denmark and Germany:

Did BB not recognise Princess Alexanda of Berleburg and her children, Richard and Ingrid?

Thanks, Iceflower
The first photo is interesting.
Notice the adjutant. He's from the navy. He's been on QMII's staff of adjutants forever! In contrast to other monarchies QMII's adjutants don't rotate. They apply for a position as an adjutant. Some are there for a few years, using the experience as a step in their career, but most stay for many years, sometimes until retirement. - I guess it's a cozy and pretty prestigious posting for some officers who may realize they don't have the abilities or ambitions to become a general or work in the Defense Staff or a higher Nato staff.

Notice also the guardsman. He has obviously been walking when he encountered QMII, so he's standing to attention until she has passed. Armed guardsmen on guard duty would have presented arms.
He is standing to attention with slightly clenched fists in the Danish fashion.
Notice also that he is not wearing a bearskin cap, but the tent-hat, marking someone from a guards regiment. That has been the case for recent years during high summer. The bearskin caps are hot! So on warm summer days it's better if the guardsmen wear a more comfortable tent hat. It's a question of being efficient. A guardsmen who is on the verge of melting is less alert and in this day and age, the guards have to be alert.
Previously the rule was that is the temperature soared above 30 degrees C (86 F) the guardsmen wore tent hats, but now they wear them throughout the high summer. - This year however, there would have been little risk of any guardsmen suffering from heat-strokes!
- I know, I know, this is for nerds, but there are quite a few of us here at TRF, and perhaps one or two might find the above interesting.
