Okay thanks for the information

I'm sure he is looking forward to finally seeing Vincent and Josephine tomorrow.

On Friday the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia congratulated the gold medalists Fredrik Lööf and Max Salminen and bronze medalist Rasmus Myrgren at a reception at the residence.

Later on in the evening the King and Queen attended the handball semifinal between Sweden and Hungary. It was quite a game and at times nerve-wracking.
On Saturday the King and Queen visited the Olympic Village and had lunch with the Swedish handball players. It was a perfect opportunity to wish them all the best for today’s final against France.

To be precise, the IOC last meeting was on Sunday morning and lasted I think until about 11:30am. My impression is that Prince Frederik left by plane for Copenhagen Sunday afternoon. I assume that today he has a day "off" (from Regency duties, too) in order to be with his family since today is the first day of school.

If you ask med, then IMO it has something to do with the changing of Grundloven in 1953 and the family problems it caused...
Yeah, it definitely seems as though there are hurt feelings involved still Too bad for Joachim and Marie that they missed out on (most of) the Olympics though.

If Frederik flew back to Denmark Sunday afternoon, he would have been regent from Sunday, wouldn't he? If he was in the country, there would have been no need for Princess Benedikte to be rigsforstander until yesterday.

Correct. The Crown Prince automatically becomes Regent, when the Monarch is out of the country and the Crown Prince is in the country. (The Monarch and Regent can't say: "I'm taking a break". Unless they are unable to function). Only if the Monarch and the Crown Prince are both away is a Rigsforstander appointed.
So presumably Frederik was somewhere else.

My initial thought is that Frederik was onboard Dannebrog, she should be back about now.

Let's continue the picture post with some selected HQs from the Olympics.

Frederik first, here running merrily with the Olympic torch.

I love the interaction between Letizia and Marie, and the kiss Letizia planted on Frederick's cheek. Looking how much at ease they all are with each other, the laughs and interaction, I think they have a closer private relationship that we (the general public) know nothing about.

I love all the pictures but this one is just so cute....

I don't think is a pity. I think royals guard their private relationships as much as we all do.
