Summary of article in Billed Bladet #32, 2016.
Written by our man in Rio, the Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know the DRF went to Rio, partly to support the Danish athletes, but also to help promote Danish trade and businesses.
The clothes the DRF wore while at the Olympics are from Bestseller.

However, the culmination of the business-part of the DRF presence was a dinner aboard the full-rigged school ship Danmark.
(Danmark was in exile in 1940 and when USA got involved the war in 1941, Danmark went into service as a school-ship for the US Coast Guard. And based on the experiences the Coast Guard purchased their own tall-ship as a school ship after the war).
Here Mary a silk-skirt from Etro a cardigan from Ann Taylor and jewels from Dulong Fine Jewellery, Orit Elhanati and Cartier.

Mary in particular, probably because she's patron for the Danish Swimming Association, paid special attention on the Danish swimmers, something that was very much appreciated. Frederik also joined her at some point and here the met Henri of Luxembourg.

M&F also visited the Olympic Village and the Danish athletes there and spend three with them, before going to visit the Australian athletes. And it was here Mary was presented with a big kangaroo.

The first Danish medal was in silver and went to the cyclist, Jacob Fuglsang. When Frederik heard about it he announced it to everyone within earshot and made a few dance-steps before calling the PR-man for the Danish team to congratulate Fuglsang.
But J&M and their children also showed up to personally congratulate Fuglsang and Athena and bette Henrik were allowed to touch the medal.
Fuglsang said: This silver-medal is the greatest I have accomplished. It's super-cool. I'm honored that that the royals follow (the events). And the Crown Prince called via our press-man to me and congratulated and he was over the moon. It's really, really cool that the royals pay so much attention to this".
(In the scans below you can see Frederik do his little dance).

But swimming and cycling wasn't the only thing the DRF followed. Also the handball match between DK and Argentina was followed. Both by Frederik who sat among the VIP's and by J&M and children who sat among the spectators. Here an extremely enthusiastic Athena cheered the Danish team. And as you can tell from one of the photos in the scans mademoiselle Athena knows exactly where she has her dad - at her feet...

Nikolai and Felix were interviewed by our reporter.
Q: How has the trip to Brazil been?
Nikolai: "It's been a fantastic experience. It's always exciting to go to new places and meet new people and cultures. And then it's exciting to experience the Olympics".
Felix: "I think it was very exciting. It's our first time in South America, so that I have beel looking very much forward to trying".

Q: How has it been to go with your younger siblings, Athena and Henrik?
N: "I think it's been cozy to be with the whole family".
F: "Yes, it's really like in the day to day life. Then we also look after them once in a while".

Q: You have here in Rio experienced the Olympics and seen quite a bit of sport - have you yourselves been doing some sport on the trip?
N: "Yes, we have. We've stayed fit on this trip. We have played a lot of ball on the beach. Especially volleyball and then we have been running a bit".

Q: What sport do you (informal you) like the best, Felix?
F: "I've been boxing for five years now and then I also like to run and cycle. Cycling, that I do a lot".

Q: What does such a trip with your father, Princess Marie and your two little siblings mean to you?
N: "Such a family-trip is always exciting and it's nice to experience something new together. That's something we together in doing and which we look very much forward to".

Q: Now the holiday is over and you are going back to school. How are you about returning home to the start of the school-year?
F: "I'm actually pretty fine about going home and start in school again. I've missed the friends a bit, so I really don't mind it".
N: "It's just like any other start of the school-year. It's nice to return home to Denmark again. It's be good to start in school".

J&M also talked to our reporter.
Joachim: "We've been busy. We've had official events, big or small, every day and sometimes several times a day.
Our children have come with us to get a unique experience and to experience a bit of the Olympics. That has been the purpose of bringing them along on the journey, since it on top of everything is taking place during the holiday. Now we are all going back home and we have to get back to work".
Marie: "The children have coped with the trip so well. It's been a pleasure. I'll say it's rare we bring them along, but it wasn't a challenge. I was a bit worried to begin with, but it went so well.
They are ready to start a new year. Henrik is to start a new school-year on 16th August, so he didn't miss days at school because of this trip.
It has basically been a good experience for the children, I believe. The little ones have been very interested in all the new. They have been curious just like Felix and Nikolai. We have some easy and curious children.
They are children who love to experience new things. They are very happy".

So great pictures of Frederik cheering on all Danish athletes. It means a lot to them

Today, from the DRF Facebook:

"The Danish national football team at the Olympics is on to the quarter-finals despite defeat to host nation Brazil.

Immediately after the match HRH Crown Prince Frederik walked to their dressing room to greet the football players who now can look forward to this weekend's game against Nigeria.

The Diary shows The Princess Royal staying through tomorrow. I tend to trust it because, of the family, Anne tends to load in all her events well in advance of them happening.

"In Rio, the Austrians will operate a round-the-clock bakery and delicatessen, serving up treats such as Kornspitz bread and, of course, wiener schnitzel."

Wilem-Alexandar was there for the first few days, I guess he left and came back since we had not seen him.

Later today Frederik will present the medals in wrestling: Kronprinsen skal give Mark O. Madsen medaljen: Han får en krammer

This is something Frederik signed on for prior to the Olympics starting.

The various IOC members sign up for events in which they would like to present the medals. Frederik signed up for this because he believed in a Danish wrestler, Mark O Madsen, who indeed is to win either silver or gold tonight.
Frederik is pretty enthusiastic about this and declares he'll probably hug him.
Frederik also says it's a big thing for him personally to be allowed to present medals.

Last night Frederik went to a party for the Danish medal-winners. Kronprins Frederik festede med de danske medaljevindere | BILLED-BLADET

They started out with singing the national anthem with the Minister for Culture and Sport as the lead singer. Frederik also gave a speech. - The party got an extra kick when it was announced that a Dane had just won gold in swimming.

very excited to see maxima in rio this year too! wonder how long she will stay there? i guess she may try and have a quick pit stop in argentina to see her family whilst she is so close. (indeed, after checking the official agenda, it doesn't look like they have scheduled events in netherlands, so maybe WA, Maxima and family are planning a holiday there)
