So I don't think its a case of them proving it to everyone, but more a case of finally being able to do what they've always done in private and doing what they've wanted to do.
Right on the spot there Jasl.
Couldn't say it better myself

Yeah it seems like it... but either way, I think Margrethe would be happy.

I also think that perhaps Greenland has always been Frederik crazy. Sirius expedition etc, perhaps even more than they are Margrethe crazy. So perhaps its not a case so much of the attention lavished on Margrethe has diminished, but more a case of Greenlanders always being more closer and look up to Frederik more than they did Margrethe.

And now of course that their prince has brought his bride with him, the bride who used a handkerchief sewn by a Greenlander and who sent that seamstress a boquet of flowes as a thank you, they've also shown their affection to this newcomer.

Righteo that sounds soppy :P ... but you get my point

I read the story on the handkerchief in 'Billed Bladet'. There was a picture of the woman, who made the lace-handkerchief, and she definitely isn't a Greenlander.

The of your story is the same as the one in 'Billed Bladet', though :)

Hahahhaa!!! oooppps, I think I'll go hide now.......

Righteo... just disregard that bit about the handkerchief.

But do you think Frederick is closer to the average Greenlander than Margrethe? Of course Margrethe is their Queen as well, but I was thinking that Fred would have more of an affinity with Greenland. Is this right, or should I completely erase my previous post in case in misleads everyone??/ :P

That's not really my imoression. Margrthe does visit Greenland as often as possible, I think the greenlanders are quite attached to Margrethe aswell.

It is my impression, that the Greenlanders like all members of their royal family.

However, Crownprince Frederik seems to have a special connection with the country after he travelled with The Sirius 2000 Expedition. For instance, the farthest out of North-East Greenland is now named "Crownprince Frederik's Land".

Another thing is, that Mary of course still is "the new kid in town". It is quite natural, that there is a lot of interest in her right now. That is the case in Greenland, as it is the case in Denmark.

Hello

Both Frederik and Mary donned traditional Inuit costume as they kicked off their two-week-long tour of Greenland in the capital Nuuk.
I never noticed the purse until some kind lady member at this site pointed it out

Queen Margrethe receives flowers from ten-year-old Marlene Hermansen upon her arrival in Greenland.
I'd like to know where the two tribes are located ..ie: red boots = east Greenland? white boots = southwest Greenland?

More than half of Greenland lies to the north of the Arctic Circle and 84 percent of the island is covered with ice all year round.
only the hardiest green vegetation survives


With only 55,000 inhabitants, Greenland is the perfect environment for hikers and other outdoor sports enthusiasts.
horses?

The natural terrain is a mixture of rugged mountains, fjords and islands covered in sparse vegetation.
imagine how the bedrock curves underneath the new soft stuff on top?

I just now saw a clip in the news on the danish channel DR1: Prince Henrik as photographer, while the royal family was sledging in Greenland.

Funny pictures, but I really don't understand that man (Prince Henrik). While he himself were the photographer, with the microphone right in front of his mouth, he speaks in french to his family.

And than he wonders, why the Danes have difficulties in accepting him as a part of the danish royal family :P

I think, that DR will put the clip on their website later on.

- I suppose Margrethe likes his difference .... a good contrast to the Danish folk.

Maybe Margrethe likes his frenchness - but the Prince has never complained on the support of his family, while he has complained, that he lacks support from the Court and the country.

I can only speak for myself, and as a dane I don't mind some differences. On the contrary, I think that the popularity of PA and CPM is partly due to them being "different" and maybe "exotic".

But when a man, who wants to be regarded as a representative of Denmark, in this country's public television starts speaking French - then I think, he has a problem.

Am I correct in thinking that advancing age may be defeating - ze language skills de - Prince Henrik in this regard ?
.... or is there something deeper, that was there before he had his very "public pout" of a few years ago?

Well said Chatleen.

Not a smart thing to do!

Ehm, I'm not quite sure, that I understand the question.

But, the danish skills of PH has nothing to do with his advanced age - he has never been able to speak the language in a decent way.

I think, that for many years, it was just regarded as common knowledge, that he didn't speak the language well, but no one really discussed it. Then, when he himself a couple of years ago complained of his status in the eyes of the Court and the Danes, it was kind of the last straw, that broke the camel's back. He can't expect respect without making any effort.

That is my view of the situation, others might very well have another opinion....

Now I get some second thoughts, realizing that most of you probably didn't see the clip.

All the prince said, was: "Regarde (at) moi", and it was only meant to his family.

But he knew, that it would be broadcasted, and I just got so annoyed with him He could have said "Se p mig" :)

This in no good news for anyone, who might went to the bookie to bet for a royal baby conceived in Greenland.

According to the danish tabloid 'BT', the couple are never alone:
