It was in the Greenland tour that we saw Vincent being called Vincer by his siblings and parents

The name Christian is indeed a little harder to nickname. But if it would be Chris or Chrisser (as Muhler mentioned) but I still haven't heard the family use at nickname instead of 'Christian'. But Frederik and Mary calls him 'Skat' (meaning treasure) which is the most common nickname you call your children (and spouses) in Denmark.

I look so much forward to this family photo opportunity every year and it's one of my absolute favorite times with Frederik, Mary and children. So many precious pictures and I wonder if they sometimes maybe contacts the photo agencies for some of the pictures?

I mean these ones (just to pick a few) are really beautiful pictures which I myself would love to have of my children

Trivia from an article in Billed Bladet #07, 2005.
Written by our man on the slopes, Henrik Salling.

Joachim and our Marie's photoshoot is not covered this week, presumably because BB's deadline is Tuesday noon.
But M&F and family gets a massive coverage instead!

The photoshoot took place at the children's slop Les Esserts in Verbier.
The family arrived, pulled out various sleighs and what not and posed for group photo before the children were let loose.
Inspired by his older brother, Vincent decided he could ride on his own and for that he got a high-five by dad and a: "That's cool".
Josephine was more careful, or perhaps more, clever because she went for a ride first with mother. Complete with a knitted cap on her head, but that was soon discarded it seems... None of her siblings wore such a headgear so why should she, I guess. (*)
Then it was time for a ride with dad, followed by a ride with big-sis and both girls squealing with delight. No ride with big-bro it seems, but perhaps he was simply busy being the older brother?

This year all four ski and Mary said: "The little ones begin to get a feeling for skiing. They are so glad and courageous. And the weather is perfect". (I think the spot where J&M are skiing is higher up, because there seems to be more fresh snow and the weather is more unpredictable, judging from the shoots over the years).
The whole show lasted half an hour when dad said that it was time to go. But Bella managed to charm dad into having one more go: "Oooh... We'll have just one more ride... dad...".

Mary wore sunglasses by Chanel.

If you think you can handle more pics from Verbier, you'll find them here somewhere: https://app.box.com/s/z2gbcgmp0rns7psz7yay2u45ctvwn391

And here are two overviews over Verbier: https://app.box.com/s/05ueukq9jxlx7nee593i
https://app.box.com/s/xxqynrso9c8th3jbz325

(*) This is more a question for English speakers and UK residents in particular. The Danish word for a knitted cap is "hue" or in Jutlandic dialect "lue". Is there a similar word in English dialects for such a headgear? Considering the contacts across the North Sea over the centuries.
We incidentally have several words for cap:
Hue = knitted cap.
Kasket = cap worn by officers or baseball caps.
Alpehue/baret = beret or the larger beret worn the in Alps.
Elefanthue = balaclava.

thanks Muhler
It was a nice photo shoot. The kids look happy and healthy. What more could one ask?
Im sure Isabella can charm Frederik into anything

thank you for the overview map.
For the knitted cap that Josephine wore I call it a beanie hat or just a beanie. I wear a similar one for the freezing Southern California winters we get


Im guessing the family flies back to DK this weekend? School starts Monday Im guessing. I wonder If Mary will fly out to Ethiopia on Sunday or?

Im sure we will get a lot of coverage of J&M next week. From the videos it looks like both answered more questions

Although I have learned to distrust the difference between Danish spelling and pronunciation, I believe that there is no better english equivalent for your 'hue' than 'hat'. There is a Dutch/German word 'hoed'/'Hut' that is, of of course, very close to the Danish. There is a word for the pomponned headgear in Canada that, I believe, is unique to our country 'toque', pronounced 'touk'
here is a link to an image of said 'hue'!

In the US, they are called 'stocking caps' or 'toboggans.' I grew up in an area with a large Amish population, and they speak Pennsylvania Deutsch, a German dialect. In that language it is called a 'tsipple-kop.' The topknot, fringe, ball, or whatever, is the 'tsipple.' Pennsylvania Deutsch is a very phonetic language, so it's spelled just like it's pronounced.

Thanks Tundra, Midwestmom & Gerry.

That's what we would call a "hue" or to be even more specific a "tophue". They've been very popular here since the age of Moses.
Hat is the same in English as in Danish.
I ask, partly because it's interesting but also because I'm surprised at how many words Danish and Norwegian have in common with English and Scottish dialects. Something Mary having relatives in Scotland must have noticed too from time to time.
The headgear for fishermen sou'west (I think it's spelled) is practically identical to the Danish "sydvest" in in dialect pronounced almost the same way.

yes, the sou'wester is common to both our languages, that share similar linguistic roots.

Since joining this forum, I've also become aware of the similarities between German and Danish. Germany and Denmark are neighbors, so I suppose it's natural that there is some 'crossover.' I've read that one of the reasons Princess (now Countess) Alexandra learned Danish so quickly is that she already spoke fluent German.

Here in England we would call the kind of cap Josephine was wearing a "bobble hat". We also use the term "beanie", but that's mostly used when referring to hats that look like this.

Thanks HeriditaryPrincess & MidwestMom

Danish and German indeed share a lot of words and expressions and Alexandra as well as PH have both claimed that Danish is easier to learn if you already speak German. They both say that the grammar is similar. I must admit that I don't see that at all! - Especially as there is no gender in Danish words, nor do we use the or der, die, das. (That is, only in some dialects).
What does astonish me is how many words older (1700's) English has in common with modern Central European.

I am afraid I would simply call it a hat and if I felt it needed it, use adjectives like, wool, fleece, knitted, bomber, or fur. I know people on the forums have used the word beanie for hat but I have never heard it used verbally in this era or seen it in print. Cap I have heard of course in baseball cap but also in a men's cap.
The Pennsylvania Dutch word are quite charming to hear about. I have visited that area and seen the men driving their black carriages
We also have beret and balaclava but most people have never heard of those words
