Thanks for posting the link. This may seem like a silly question, but is there any way of subscribing to this magazine. Bearing in mind I don't understand one word of Danish, but would like to see the pics

That would be awesome if you could translate that page for me. Have been trying to do it in bits but it is slightly difficult. Thanks for your help.

and the problem of the online translators have is that they don't translate ALL the words... and when you read the translation, you didn't understand it completely...

ok I start from top to button.

1: it asks which magazine you want and you choose "billed bladet" on the drop down box.

2: it asks what country you live in and you choose your country from the drop down box

3: it ask how many issues you want to subscribe too. you can choose 13, 26, 39 or 52 issues from the drop down box

4: In this drop down box you can choose when to start your subscription.
Underneath you can see what its going to cost in DKK.

5: "opkrævning" means if you want it to be send to another address than the one you have provided. But I dont think you want to checkmark that.

6: "Fornavn" is your first name

7: "Efternavn" is your last name

8: "Gadenavn og husnummer" is your streetname and the number on your house

9: "Postnummer og by" is the town you live in and the zip code on it

10: "telefonnummer" is your phone number

11: "email adresse" is your email address

12: "abonnementet skal anvendes som gave" is the subscription is going to be used as a gift. dont think you have to checkmark this

13: "jeg ønsker at udprinte gavekortet selv" is I want to print out the gift certificate myself. dont think you have to checkmark this.

14: "Jeg har læst og accepteret Allers abonnementsbetingelser" is that you have read the terms of agreement and accept it. you HAVE to checkmark this.

15: the big mass of words is if they are allowed to contact you with comecials and so on so thats up to you if you want to checkmark this.

16: "Jeg ønsker at betale med Dankort/kreditkort" is I want to use credit card and "Jeg ønsker at få tilsendt Girokort" is that I want to have a bill, so checkmark one of those.

17: "godkend" is accept and "fortryd" is cancell the purchase.


Please ask me if you have any questions about it :-)

I've asked this before but didn't get a reply - can anyone shed some light on the significance of Mary wearing the same fascinator to all three christenings? I would assume that she really really likes it but I just wondered if there was a traditional or royal significance?

I lived in a few places in Europe for a while and I have been to a few more. Almost every country I've been to, abbreviate the names.

It was something she decided to do, I am guessing. She made it her "tradition" by wearing it to all christenings of the children.

As a European who has been to every European country and lived in a few I do not agree with you.
Besides, the only country which matters in this case is Denmark and several Danes have stated that names are not abbreviated in their country.

I have to say that I agree with ricarda. I too am European and have visited a lot, and have friends from many different countries. For example, in Italy they don't abbreviate names (unless of course we are with close friends).

In Germany it's 50/50 I think. We don't abbreviate names as extrem as in english speaking countries. And we aren't very creative either when wie do it. For example: Alexandra/Alexander will be "Alex" for sure. Only very few would tend to "Lexie" or "Lex". And if an Alexandra/Alexander have a middle name or a surname starting with "J" only 1 or 2 % of the cases would make an "AJ" out of it. We definitely don't abbreviate a name into near non-existence. Same goes for a lot of other names.

Possible abbreviations for Frederiks and Marys children in Germany would be:

Christian: Almost never abbreviated. In very few cases he will be a "Chris". But mostly it's a Christoph/Christopher when you hear "Chris" in Germany.

Isabella: Common abbreviatons are "Isa" or "Bella". This is a name that get's abbreviated a lot. Mostly it's "Isa" whereas "Bella" isn't heard as often in Germany as it is in other countries. In fact, it just started to become "Bella" more since the Twilight-Virus came to Germany. At least it is like this where I live in Germany.

Vincent: A quite popular name in Germany at the moment. At least when you believe the name forums here where this name is discussed a lot. But it's a name that will not be abbreviated in Germany. It's just like Christian. Not a very abbreviate-able name over here.

Josephine: It's the same like Isabella. If it get's abbreviated it will be a "Josie" for sure. I've never heard of a "Jo" when the girl is named Josephine. It's either Josie or Josephine. And it's almost 50/50.

Also I have a lot of friends with long abbreviate-able names who don't get abbreviated. It's not because the don't want it, but because we just don't do it. We never thought about it. They have been given their names and we use them. It's as simple as that.

So much to the system we use in Germany.

I am European as well . And my experience with the countries I lived in and been to is that yes, they do abbreviate. It also comes from the conversations I had with many Europeans while working in an international environment.

And as I know the only country that matters is Denmark, in this case, I was referring to a part of the discussion about other countries.

Besides, what don't you agree with me on? I stated "Almost every country I've been to, abbreviate the names". Which means, I have been there and heard the people abbreviate.

Which means, they do abbreviate. It doesn't matter whether it is among the close friends or not, my point was, if they do abbreviate or don't at all.

There is difference: in the US politicians are known like "Dave Smith", "Joe Cooper" and not as "David Smith", "Joseph Cooper", same thing in Argentina where they go by nicknames even in official events. In Italy or France or other countries that would never happen, the abbreviation of names is only used among friends and never in official things.

I am hoping the four kids names - Christian, Isabella, Vincent, Josephine - get shortened to: Kit, Bel, Vin, Fi (from Fina/Fifi)...

Danes do abbreviate names sometimes. Especially among close friends.

The CP couple calls Isabella: Bella.

Alexandra used to be called Alex by the press all the time.
P Joachim is often called Jokke by the press. And Frederik is often called Frede (or Pingo) by the press.

However I do not see P Vincent being called Vince. Vincent is a rather unusual name in Denmark, so my guess is he will just be called that.

Yes they do! i.e. Filomena to Mena, Domenica to Mica, Luigino to Gino, Regina to Gina and the list goes on.

Undoubtedly, both Mary and Frederick would know that, especially in Australia, names are shortened. Hence why they were probably careful in the names they chose. In Australia it is our culture and deny it as much as you like, but all four children will have contact with their Australian cousins and they will shorten the names to Vinnie and Josie. It's not a bad thing; actually to have your name shortened is a sign of acceptance here in Australia.

Well we always seems to be a very responsible child. I generally think his gets different treatment by everyone because of his future role. I mean there is probably a more "serious" upbringing on his case, helping him to release his being a potential crown prince and later, king. So I guess that affects him generally in his life. On the other hand, almost all firstborns feel that they are a little bit responsible for their younger siblings, even if the age difference between them is small.

Are there any videos from the scene of Christian calling Isabella or replying to the journalists? I would love to see them!
