He seems to me like a lovely intelligent man (he fell in love with Mary after all) though I do not think it clever of the organizers to put the auto que to the right instead of in front of him and he does look a bit nervous and staring to the right which is not natural.

... I beg your pardon, but I fail to see a connection between Crown Prince Frederic's marriage to Crown Princess Mary and a level of his intelligence. I for one think that Crown Prince Frederic is an intelligent sensible man, who performs his duties as Crown Prince well and serves Denmark the best way he can.

As for Frederic's accent when speaking English, didn't he spend a year at Harvard or another Ivy League school in the US? That would explain an accent leaning away from the strict British accent.

I have yet to watch the video of Frederic addressing global issues. Joachim has spoken a lot on videos prior to his marriage to Marie, including most of the interviews (engagement, and pre-wedding). One can hear a lot of British in his English.

She lived in the US for a while, studied here and also worked, so she is completely fluent in English. She lived in Boston and New York City. Her English is refined, but doesn't lean as much toward the British accent.

Enough about Frederik or anyone else's accent, please. Let's focus on the important issue of global warming.

Thanks for your cooperation!

That is politics and not accepted to talk about on TRF.

I think it would be politics if we said that, for example, Russia and US are big morons for not doing enough to prevent / slow down terrible effects of global warming, possibly adding a couple of lines about the respective presidents as an afterthought.

Global warming itself is hardly politics: it’s an issue that’s going to concern or is already affecting all of us.

I am getting a bit frustrated about lack of activity concerning this issue: oh, they sign and ratify all sorts of protocols, but that doesn’t mean anything is actually done.
