I think it was this magazine that also criticized frederik for not attending All IOC meetings. He can't win.

But in other news in sochi they gave him some kangaroo gifts for the twins and greetings to Mary from the Australian team

Real men make twins, right?

I really like how they always visit the Australian athletes too when they visit the the Olympics, they are clearly fond of both countries.

Oh how cute!

Yes the boxing kangaroo is a familiar sight at sporting events but has also been used in the defence force. I have attached a link for the wiki site that may inform members:

Boxing kangaroo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

E.B. doesn't sound like it is pro monachy? Or is it just anti Frederik & Mary?

Thank you for the information and photo!

No no, EB is anti to all our royal members. Also the foreigns. It's well known (and said by the newspaper itself) that they are against monachy. In fact, the newspaper is very anti everybody. You should see how they writes about others, our Prime Minister in particular. Yeah, you may like her or not, but I for one, think it reminds of bullying. They write more about M+F than the others in the royal family, but it is simply because there is bigger interest in M+F. Writing a story, positive or negative, means many more views than writing a story, positive or negative, of example Prince Henrik or Joachim. Besides having some interesting revelations and strong campaigns (most political or community-related) E.B. most of all reminds of a gossip magazine. I know that the schools not using E.B as a serious source.

Tak Roskilde. Thank you for informing me about EB. A shame that that is the case. I guess the DRF know not to read it and there are enough people who look for and enjoy the interesting side of monachies, their histories and families, that media outlets such as EB don't matter so much.

I think most people today understand that many media outlets make up stories about famous people just to sell more magazines. A quick check on the internet soon dispells these outrageous stories/lies. The trouble is that some people believe everything they see in print and then come away with a bias that is unfair about a person. What can we do other than ignore the negative articles. Maybe this is why the Royal Forums is so popular with people all around the world, as members seek the truth.

I imagine Danish people must be asking themselves the same question. Here in Canada a special support was put in place for athletes when we hosted the winter Olympics. We did not want to repeat the embarrassment of Montreal when we as host country failed to win a single medal

You're welcome

Yes I doubt our royal members read EB on a daily basis, I'm pretty sure they read our more serious newspapers such as Berlingske, Politiken and Jyllands Posten (Muhler has given an example a few months ago somewhere in the threads) I have seen Mary with Politiken when she and Frederik was on their way to the wedding in Berleburg in 2011. On the other hand, I remember once having seen PC Henrik with tabloid B.T. What is interesting is that the royals don't avoid EB - Frederik for example has several times lined up for rather large solo interviews with EB. Recently only two days ago in Sochi about his days during the Olympics. Also back in 2011 some weeks after Mary had given birth to Vincent and Josephine. EB actually gived him great credit for standing up to the interview (in his own home) in a newspaper which everyone (including Frederik himself) knows is against the monarchy. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/YFOex7s7jq8/mqdefault.jpg (a picture from the interview)

And that said, yes EB can be really hard and rapacious to the royals, but it's in periods - often up to something big happening - such as a birth or Margrethe's 40th anniversary. There can be months, maybe half a year where there aren't some special articles.

It's more a question of talents. Or lack of it.
And apart from that DK is not the greatest winter sports nation, to put it mildly.
Except when it comes to curling perhaps. - Which is an odd, odd occupation, no doubt invented by slightly intoxicated and bored municipal streetsweepers on a winters day.

Ok, this magazine had the wring information about Denmark! one medal is great , better than nothing! Just that country like Denmark so stable
and with a good financial situation I would imagine would get kids with talent and prepare them for the Olympics, like did Russia. Adelina the gold medal in figure skating was prepare for this Olympics since she was 12, and I mean Russia paid for everything, after came Yulia and took her throne and the Russians thought that Yulia will win, but Adelina showed them she was the winner! Denmark could do the same!

Frederik participating in these days (December 7-9th ) in the 127th IOC Session in Monaco. Unfortunately, I doubt we get any coverage.

Frederik has spoken to Politiken about the reforms of the IOC that aims at setting guidelines for making teh Olympics much more affordable, so that smaller nation can bid for being the host or alternatively that two nearby cities from different nations can share the burden.

Kronprins Frederik: Folkets støtte er nødvendig for dansk OL-bud - Politiken.dk

He is also asked about Copenhagen having a chance as a host city. Frederik responds that being an optimist by nature, that possibility is closer than before. However he adds that it would not be possible without a backing of at least 60& of the Danes.
