Here is a video clip of the Crown Prince couple in Miami courtesy of Her og Nu. In it you can hear Christian speak as well as Mary. I feel kind of intrusive watching the clip since it seems Mary and Frederik look somewhat annoyed by the media and cameras snapping in their faces every two seconds.

They are also on the cover of the magazine this week with the headline "Family in [the] USA"

So Isabella was there also!! Who is this nanny I don't know her? Christian looks good but that shirt with those shortsn don't look nice at all. It seams that Mary wants to make Christian look confortable and simple but sometimes she make mistakes and "things" just don't macht! It seams like Isabella is wearing Christian's hat!

you now what, they are on holiday and Christian is two. It dosen't really matter what he is wearing for a holiday does it? I mean he is not going to church wearing that is he? And maybe Isabella has her own hat that looks the same as Christians.

It is hard to find anything that matches a swimsuit. I assume the shorts are just that as Mary is carrying an inflatable water toy. And the top looks to be a light jacket, mornings in Miami can sometimes be a bit cool in the spring despite the warm ocean breezes. I imagine Christian is wearing a simple tee shirt underneath. At any rte, they appear to be enjoying the holiday and who cares what they look like as long as hey had fun!

Yes it was a competition. And a rather serious one, the world championship of the the sailing class Farr 40 (the kind of boat). Frederik and his crew ended up with the 4th place, quite good me thinks.

In my opinion the reason they might look somewhat annoyed with the attention was much more because of Christian than about themselve.

Is this a competition of some sort that he is there in an official capacity? Or is this something that he is doing on his own time?

And isn't this the same race where he lost his wedding ring last year? (Was that already so long ago?) I hope that he has a better fitting one this year!

Oh, how I wish I was in Miami! It would be lovely to see him at the sailing event. I really liked the photo of the boats with their joint monogram on the sails. This is the first time that I have seen this.

Both .

He is the fourth best worldwide in this competition.

He went to Florida to sail, this is a priority of his, cultivating his hobby, so much so that he left Denmark before the scheduled time. It is the fourth time this year that he has gone there alone Billed-Bladet - Sejlerprinsen Frederik i Florida - a strange habit for someone who has previously waffled about the importance of family! So, his absence was not due to pressure of work, that, it seems, is never a priority.

Considering that the event sgl was talking about was at the end of October, and Frederik has only been in Miami (at the most) since the start of this week/weekend, Frederik wasn't absent from the award ceremony because of his sailing.

You know, I was thinking about it and this would have been an event which it would have been nice for Frederik to have attended to.
I know the Foundation is Mary's, but this wasn't work she was initiating or bringing attention to; it was recognition.

My post was in reference to the speech at the Mary Foundation, ^ which, as the DRF's website confirms http://www.kronprinsparret.dk/2000f/...onth/11/Day/18 was on the 18th November, the same day that CP Frederik was in Miami.

Yes I know, the conference on domestic violence. But the two posts you quoted were from a previous event, the one from October 24. Frederik's sailing has nothing to do with the conference yesterday; nor the posts you quoted and responded to.

wiwaxia, JessRulz is right. Check the date of the post you quoted which is 27 October 2008. I believe October 27th comes before November 18th. It boggles the mind how anyone can carp on a person without verifying their facts. Moreover, I believe that this is only the second time this year that Frederik has gone to Florida and, the first time alone. He went in April 2008 with Mary and the children. Please read the article that you quoted in your post for more information.

I think I already admitted that in my post! Sorry to hear that you were boggled - to err is human! and as for 'carp' - I take exception to a polite post referred to as carping. As for verifying facts -


I dag og i morgen deltager han for fjerde gang i år i en Farr 40-sejlads i havet ud for Miami i Florida.
Ekstra Bladet - Fredes familieliv sejler

It says - Today and tomorrow he participates for the fourth time this year in a Farr40 race in Miami Florida.

Unless of course you have information to the contrary!

Yes, that´s how I´d read it also. Correct translation. He was in Florida in January, March, April and is now. Makes 4 (if we talk about Miami, it would make 3. Since he had sailed at Key West in January...it´s said there he had lost his wedding ring, while diving)

It boggles the mind how anyone can defend a person without verifying their facts. Well, actually I think (in the world of Royalty watching) it should be allowed to be wrong without being criticised in a harsh way or ridiculed

I like the colour of the suit and it´s a good cause. Slowly the Mary foundation seems to build up a real profile...

Agreed! - and it was admitted!..... and I agree about the suit, I rather like it!
