Christmas is near and that means books about the DRF are being published.
This time a photobook by Henrik Hildebrandt, who for 35 years photographed the DRF at various events.
Some of these hitherto unpublished photos have been compiled in a book.

Let's go to the actual photos:
Here a photo of PH at a movie premiere from 1982.

QMII at the same premiere:

And Frederik and Joachim also at the premiere:

The photographer has tried to take pictures of the DRF in, or in poses that resemble day to day situations.
He says: "If I am to pick my favorite members of the DRF, it must be Marie and Mary. They glow and are good at being relaxed. That results in good pictures."

Mary is here pregnant with Christian:
"I don't know why I'm so crazy about this photo. Her hair has been laid up. I don't know if that's it. She looks very relaxed and happy. Natural."

Joachim and a shy Athena on her first day at school:
The photographer at some point met Joachim at a festival and asked for a photo, and a somewhat skeptical Joachim needed a little instruction in how to pose so that he would look natural.
But he was eventually invited inside their private home.
"He's surely/no doubt a real fine and nice guy, when you get to know him privately."

Here Christian is telling Bella how to behave!
"They are quite ordinary people. It was at the chirstening of the twins and then Christian step in as the older brother, just as you would see in many other families."

As you know QMII and PH never worked out how to walk arm in arm.
Here at Isabella's christening:

Frederik with schoolchildren in 2011:

The book is called: Kongehuset i det nye artusinde. = The DRF in the new millennium. By Henrik Hildebrandt.
In case you are interested.
You can find it here:
234 pager, hardcover. The price is reasonable for such a book and the price is like to drop further in january.

BB has compiled a delightful gallery of QMII and her father Frederik IX.
As you know she was very much "daddy's girl."
But they have made a mistake in one of the photos... You should easily be able to spot it.
