You are welcome.

I should emphasize that Prince Charles' enormous workload was also mentioned.
Also the fact that PoW was intially seen as a "tree hugging hippie", but now people realise that he was perhaps rather ahead of his time. I understood from the coverage that UK has now really started to focus on ecology. Something Charles has advocated for many years.

That may still happen.
A little souvenir for Mary and Camilla visiting the filmset today perhaps?

And wouldn't you know. Duchess Camilla was presented with a sweather.


The producer, Piv Bernt presented Camilla with a sweather and Mary with a crew jacket.
The visit lasted about an hour.
Sofie Gråbøl and Nikolai Lie Kaas was on the set today and greeted the royals.

On this warm and balmy March day, Frederik and Charles went to the island of Amager, just to the east of Copenhagen city. Here they among many others, met several hundred locals, who were pretty enthusiastic.
Prince Charles has charmed everyone with his interaction with the locals. His abillity to small talk and chat briefly with everyone. - It's so obvious how much routine he has.
Here is a pic and a video: Billed-Bladet - Video: Prins Charles hittede på Amager

The man with the glasses seen walking behind Frederik, is the mayor of Copenhagen, Frank Jensen.

15 degrees C today. It's practically summer.

ADDED: I see Fairy Tale has already posted the pics.

I should've put a tenner on that happening.

The sweater presented to Camilla, is it to do with Danish tradition (the print etc)?

The main character in The Killing, of which Camilla is apparently a fan, wears these woollen jumpers with some pretty loud patterns. It's become the programme's trademark. I've only seen bits of the show but the character is famous for wearing these old fashioned jumpers.

You can even knit your own if you're that way inclined:

I think you might call it a Nordic tradition. My own mum knitted these sweaters; they were called 'Icelandic sweaters' when I was a child. In Denmark you can also buy lots of these sweaters as Norwegian patterned sweaters.

Gudrun og Gudrun who are behind the famous sweater from The Killing are from the Faroe Isles.

'We're addicts!' The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles reveal their obsession with Danish crime drama The Killing | Mail Online

Camilla got her hands on Sarah Lund's 'gun' today, apparently she joked '"it was me all along!".

Charles told Ms Grabol that Camilla got him into the programme, and it's one of the few things they can agree on watching together.

Lovely article, thanks EIIR!
I love all the little jokes Charles and Camilla liked, and I think I'm going to watch The Killing now.


Prince Charles met some ex-pats during the final day; nice to see the Welsh flag proudly on display for the meeting with the Prince of Wales.
I absolutely love the picture of Mary and Camilla with their gifts; wonder whether we will ever see those worn by either of them.

Meanwhile, Prince Frederik made sure it's not all duty and took Prince Charles to play some Danish Pin Billiards.

Thanks for the links.
I saw a clip on TV last night from Charles and Camilla's visit to Helsingør (Elsinore); they come across as a very nice couple. They are professionals; but they seem very good at giving the spectators a warm, royal experience. Charles in particular seems very good at small-talking with people.

He was really funny when he (jokingly) asked the people standing there (and probably waiting for him): Is this the queue for the ice-cream?
Brought back memories of my year in London.

Later in the day Mary and Camilla visit the Center for Basic Development and Frederick and Charles visit a energy station. Everyone looks like they're having fun.

You can even knit your own if you're that way inclined:

My mom's an avid knitter; I wonder if she'd like to tackle one of these for her favorite daughter?

An article from the Defence site about C&C visiting wounded veterans at Kastellet yesterday: Sårede mødte Prins Charles

One of them, Dennis Dencker, (That's the man in the wheelchair) talked to Prince Charles. The PoW expressed his compassion and also expressed his admiration for Dennis Dencker completing the New York Marathon.
Dennis Dencker added: "Prince Charles was full of admiration that had completed a marathon. He was incredibly pleasant to talk with and we laughed and had fun".

Dennis Dencker, along with other crippled veterans take part in a three year long project aiming for the soldiers to enter a sport on a high level. Some even reaching Olympic standard in similar projects.
The aim is of course to give them a purpose of life, a goal, and to rehabillitate better. As such they compete, and find suppert, with fellow veterans.
