The new photos of Princess Isabella are lovely, she's grown up so fast! The blue flower in her hair is very cute, and she's starting to look more and more like Frederik IMO. Thanks for posting, Roskilde.

Cannot believe she's 6! I remember the day she was born...I just submitted one of my articles to a conference. This article was going to either make or break my PhD. After I submitted, I saw the news that Princess Mary had given birth to the first Princess since Princess Beneditke.
I´m sure you mean since Princess Anne-Marie, right?

This little princess is growing lovelier and lovelier. Those pictures are marvelous and I thought her outfit and hair band are the cutest.

Maybe it's just because we know the pictures were taken in the morning, but I think she looks a little bit tired in the first picture
In the second picture she definitely looks like a little Mini-Frederik with long hair!

Isabella is one of my favourite little royals, I just love her spunk. I hope she never loses it as she grows older!

She's absolutely adorable! I love watching her and her siblings grow!
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

Lovely photos of a lovely and more than likely lively child. I hope Isabella enjoyed her special day.

It's hard to imagine a cuter, more charming little one than Isabella, IMO. I hope she had a wonderful birthday!

Depends. If he has a teacher (or more) who has a civil service tenure (or, is a "tjenestemand" employed by the state), he still have to go to school. My sister has one class a week - art - every friday because her art teacher has a civil service tenure. I also know some who actually aren't affected by the lockout because all of their teachers have civil service tenures (or, are "tjenestemænd").

And there are also the teachers who are not members of the regular unions, but instead are members of what we may call independent unions, what we in DK usually call "yellow unions". They are for the most part not lock-outed either.

The lock-out is getting pretty annoying, now having started on its fourth week. The result has long since been decided. I.e. that the teachers will have to comply to the terms dictated by the Organisation of Municipalities, which run the state/public schools in DK. All it needs is a government intervention.
But since the government has been cuaght with their pants down in this issue, they now hesitate to intervene so as not to give the impression that the whole thing has been agreed on beforehand. - Aaand because a hot, very, very hot, 1st May is comming up!
Where the government members, which is supposed to be centre-left, but in reality has pursued a policy well to the right of the former right wing government are going to defend their policy at 1st May gatherings - in front of the unions and their voters who are hopping mad!
I can tell you in all honesty that politics here in DK has never in my lifetime been so entertaining, nor so baffling!

So it may not be until early May before Christian will be able to go to school as normal again. But many hours are now missing so that means that some of the summerholiday may have to be cancelled in order to make up - again annoying everybody.
On a more personal level; our oldest is leaving school this year and his final examins are now threathned if this continues for much longer. Not to mention that the final brushing up before the examins haven't taken place because of the lockout.

Oh yes, this April has indeed been The Month of the Grandparents, who have been mobillized en masse here in DK to look after the younger children. Fortunately the DRF children are in a position where the work of their parents is flexible and they have nannies, but nevertheless I can well imagine grandpapa Henrik having stepped in a couple of times.

Family and friends journey to Amalienborg Palace to celebrate Princess Isabella's birthday this weekend.

Thanks dbarn67

It looks like our Marie took bette Henrik to kindergarten and Joachim picked him up afterwards.

Not having been able to lift off the roof at Amalienborg and peek in, this is my guess at how Isabella's birthday would have started.
She would have been woken up by her parents and older brother, perhaps even the twins, who would have sung the birthday song for her. And she would have recieved her first presents on the bed.

After having posed for Mary in what to me looks like the backgarden of the mansion (notice the wall in the background) it was off to the kindergarten.
Where her mates would also have sung the birthday song for her, and in many if not most cases the kindergarten will fly Dannebrog in her honour. Isabella will then treat the others with buns or cookies.

Home again, family and friends will arrive in the afternoon to celebrate her, bringing presents. They will all be treated to layered cake, buns and sweets - so an already high-activity level is guaranteed to get even higher! Alternatively pancakes or æbleskiver - you'd be amased how many æbleskiver six years olds can stuff themselves with.
Later in the evening, with probably a few friends staying over, it's time for dinner and it's a very common tradition that the birthday child decide the menu. A very good guess could be spaghetti with meatsauce.

Spot on, Muhler with the birthday song and the explanation of the way many Danes (and surely also M+F) celebrate their children's birthdays. But I don't think that Isabella went to kindergarten. It was Sunday yesterday

A minor detail

Only got home late last night and I'm still catching up. For whatever reason I got into my head Bella's birthday was Friday.
Oh well, can't help it - I'm old...
