Christian's Birthday Photos - Are Members' Expectations Realistic?

You are so right biboquinhas. Very disappointing. It's about give and take isn't it? Royal Houses depend on the public - they pay for them - and on a good relationship with the media. It's just fair to release a nice pic of the future CP when on the other hand the media is expected to turn up at royal events etc. It would have been the usual nice gesture, no big deal, they have done it before - and it doesn't have to be the professional photoshoot session they did last year - one pic would do; very snobbish to ignore the expectations of the followers of the DRF.

i totally agree with some of the posters and i really believe they should have released some pictures! most royal houses do release them every year (norway and the netherlands, for example). since they did so last year, i was thinking the same would happen this time. what a disappointment!

Yes I agree with you! If it is some kind of revenge for what they are saying in that book is a big childish atitute of them! I never though they might do something like that!! The media and the public are expecting photos that is not a polite thing to do!I think that even if they relase now some photos they are not birthday photos becaise they weren't release the same day!Not a Royal thing to be done at all!

Oh please, do you really think that there are no pictures because Mary and Fred had a BF over the new book? Do they seem like those kind of people? No pictures, no pictures. We will more than likely have some in the coming weeks/months (it's nearly Christmas after all), so be patient

Nobody knows why they havn't released pictures. Most likely they have a very good reason. Who knows, maybe Christian was sick! Anyway I don't think they are obliged to do so - and I am one of those above-mentioned danish taxpayer.

Doesn't matter why it's just tacky not to provide some pics. There are always so media conscious why not this time? I'd rather not speculate but the no show is poor. Norway does it, the Dutch, even Spain did it last year with Leonor and I expect the same this year. Denmark is an annoying exception here

Why is it tacky? Is it tacky when pictures aren't released in Belgium, Britiain, and the other countries that don't release official pictures for birthdays? And why does it not matter why they didn't release pictures? There could be multiple reasons, as another poster said above - Christian could have been sick

It's tacky because they did this mega photoshoot last year and roused some expectations regarding future anniversaries.
Such pictures can be taken days or even weeks before, whenever suitable for Christian. A pic of a royal toddler is always a nice gesture and as they have published some pics in the past I don't see why is wasn't possible yesterday. I find it disappointing; if others don't they don't

Thanks, elisabetteke, I hadn't seen the last photo, at the Yacht Club, either. Isabella looks so sweet and smiley, and looks a month or two older than in the one with the Princes (for Felix's birthday).

I suppose it isn't always possible to fit in photos with the CPs schedule, but I am sure that we will get some Christmas pictures - and that isn't that far away.

I'am hoping that we still have some pictures before Christimas otherwise I think we will be very disappointing with Mary and Frederik and to me that is a very very negative point for them towards Danish people!
I love Mary and I'am a big fan of her but now I'am really dissapointed with them, maybe if they came out and say why and explain why... things would be different.
They create so mucht expectation because of the photoshot of last year, that this year all of us were waiting for some beautiful and different photos of little Christian. What a big dissapointment!!!!!!

i agree, duke of marmalade. it's obviously fine if you don't want to release pictures at all, but since you have last year, i think it's just fair to do the same for a couple more years. it's just a nice gesture. i don't think releasing an offical photo is that complicated. it can well be a private photo of christian and isabella, just as they did in summer 2006, so not even need for a photoshoot, just as last year. the difference between belgium or britain is that they NEVER release pictures, as you said, so we don't expect it to happen. to do it.. one year yes, one year no... is a little bit unprofessional from my point of view.

So because they released photos for Christian's 1st birthday (a major milestone in any child's life, and one for any proud parent) they are obliged to release photos each year?
The same thing happened in Belgium with Princess Elisabeth and Prince Emmanuel - there were photos of their first birthdays, but I don't think any have been released for birthdays since (or very rarely if there has been)

Personally, I don't see how this is an issue - they didn't release photos, they didn't release photos, big deal. Anyway, this is the last I'll post on this topic because I am getting ticked off by seeing post after post of "Where are birthday pics?" and "They should release pics!" (Mods, you can delete any part of this post that isn't OT)

yes, on every birthday of Christian there should be a photo shoot, private or in public. Because of the importance of who he is in the danish royal family and last but not least because he is a terribly cute little boy

I am reading this topic and I must say that I'm waiting photos too but I don't blame F&M when they really don't realize any photos. First we don't know why there are know pictures and second I think that it's there one business to decide this kind of thing (despite they are royals). So lets wait and hope and please don't get angry because after all it's Fr&M who decide such kind of thing!

I agree. I think we really cannot complain: we see Christian so often in public.. compared to Ingrid Alexandra or Catharina Amalia for example.. we really got to see a lot beautiful pictures of the little prince during the last year.

It could have been because of the book saying not so good things about the Danish Monarchy.
Yes lets wait and see!

I too was looking forward to seeing pictures but I don't think the Crown Prince couple should be so heavily criticized. It is their choice to give photo's and perhaps they only did it last year as it was his first birthday and a big milestone. I'm still hoping we will see something but in fairness I think we see far more of Christian than other royal children who only ever come out for official occasions.

Maybe it is reasonable for the Danish taxpayers to "expect" birthday pictures, and even to complain when they aren't forthcoming. But I think that personally, I don't have a right expecting anything. I can't speak for other members, but I don't think the DRF should cater to the "expectations" for pics of the royal children just for "us" (by "us" I mean the wider royal watching community beyond Denmark). I can't speak at all for what the Danish taxpayers should and shouldn't "expect" because I don't know the Danish tax system, i.e. how much is payed for the royal family and all that.
But personally, I just appreciate whatever the Crown Prince family wants to share with us. It was lovely to have Christian's first birthday photos, but if they don't release photos one year, I see that as a personal choice for them. They aren't obligated (from my POV, take it for what it's worth) and I think they do it when they are comfortable doing it. It is a privilege for me to see updates from the royal house on the development of Prince Christian, but I will never hold it as a right. But as I said, for people who pay taxes into the DRF, maybe it is a right. I can't say.
