A short article on the new book on Frederik; in connection to him turning 50 next year .
https://jyllands-posten.dk/kultur/li...rins-frederik/

Frederik was interviewed once a month over a year and half; "In addition to the royal family, many other childhood friends Ellen Hillingsøe, Peter Heering and Holger Foss also contribute. In addition, friends from the Frog Corps, the Sirius Patrol and from the world of rock and sport have been interviewed. Also several of the Prince's Australian friends have been asked to report on their experiences with the Crown Prince.
Finally, it is also mentioned that former former chieftain Per Thornit for the first time talks about his many years close to Crown Prince Frederik."

That's sounds like an interesting book. And I have put it on my list and I intend to buy it and write about here on TRF.

More on the book, which I have just ordered: https://www.b.dk/kultur/biografi-om-...modet-med-mary

Mary and QMII are having a say in the book as well. Including new details about M&F's very first time together back in 2000. - That apparently involved a fortune teller at a flea market!

Thanks, Eya.

Excerpts from that book is being published these days, and I look forward to receiving it with the mail on Wednesday.
I look very much forward to reading it and it so happens that later this month I will have a good deal of time, after a minor surgery, to write summaries.

More info on the book from the author
https://www.kristeligt-dagblad.dk/ku...nmarkshistorie

and indeed excerpts from the book are being published. It looks well done

Mary on the marriage proposal in Rome
Kronprinsesse Mary fortæller i ny bog: Sådan friede Frederik i Rom | BILLED-BLADET

Joachim on Frederik growing up hearing that he would be King
Joachim om Frederiks tunge arv: - Det med 'Danmarks konge' blev han utrolig ked af at høre - TV 2
"According to him, his parents were too hard to talk to him about his particular role, so he became both insecure and frustrated. This was especially expressed in childhood when other children, for example, called him "The King of Denmark". It remembers his brother, Prince Joachim."

Haakon and Victoria on Frederik
https://kendte.dk/under-bjaelken/
Crown Prince Haakon tells in the book "Under the beam", a portrait of Crown Prince Frederik, that he has always seen the Danish Crown Prince as an inspiration.
"One of the things I've learned from Frederik is to bring myself more into the Crown Prince role. When I grew up, the private Haakon was completely incompatible with the official prince. The two never met and would rather be separate, I felt, says the Norwegian crown prince in the book."

"Crown Princess Victoria, says that she has learned a lot of Crown Prince Frederik's authenticity. "Frederik always comes into a room with sparkling eyes and looks at people.- There are people who ask questions, but never waiting for the answer. Frederik is always waiting for the answer, says Crown Princess Victoria."

https://www.fyens.dk/indland/Kronpri...rtikel/3199029
"Crown Prince Frederik says that the queen is "in a good form right now". But he also receives several tasks at the same time. Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary are trying to live in the present, but their awareness that at one point they will be king and queen, grows.

relationship with Joachim
https://www.bt.dk/royale/meget-forsk...et-til-joachim
The Crown Prince adds that the most important thing he learned from Prince Joachim is loyalty:

Meeting Mary
https://www.bt.dk/royale/spaakone-fo...t-med-frederik
"In the beginning, I thought it was a little too good to be true. Perhaps it was just me that was the mood of the momentum - first time in Australia, Olympic euphoria on all street corners - and so in the middle of it all, you meet the woman who is just amazing.
"It was not just a crush, but just as much the feeling of having met a soul mate, says the crown prince in the book."

Some more excerpts from this book
https://www.dr.dk/nyheder/indland/ny...e-med-frederik
"The crown prince's childhood friend, actor Ellen Hillingsø, draws parallels to something deeper in the Prince's meeting with Mary, which she believes he has been ready for during his long journey with the Sirius Patrol.
- He came back as a changed person, and I would venture to assert that it is not a coincidence that those big events - Greenland, the meeting with Mary during the Sydney Olympic Games and Queen Ingrid's death - coincide the year he also finds something authentic in itself. It is of a mythological nature. At all times, man has taken long long journeys to find himself, she says."

The author notes that he had great liberties in interviewing and writing this book
https://www.dr.dk/nyheder/kultur/boe...e-der-er-modig
"And the openness - or rather the courage to openness - is a characteristic of the Crown Prince's character, says Jens Andersen.
"We get a king, which I think is extremely brave. And not just brave in the physical sense - that he dares to jump into the parachute. We get a king who is brave in a whole different shape. That dare show its vulnerability. Who is not afraid to talk about his weaknesses. Who has the courage to sometimes step outside of the conformance it is to be born into this role. he says."

On Parenting and a nice note about how he was inspired by Joachim
https://kendte.dk/mary-om-sin-mand-n...r-han-for-nem/
" It was a pleasure to see him and Nikolai together when he was little. Then I began to say to myself that my children should have a more present upbringing than the one I have received, says the crown prince in the book."

on the shared music interest with Christian
https://kendte.dk/kronprins-frederik-musik/

Another great article on Frederik recognizing he will never be great at public speaking
https://www.bt.dk/royale/klar-men-ud...medium=twitter
""I have realized that media training is certainly not wasted. Some people keep talking more naturally built in themselves. I have not, even though I thought I had it, "it reads openly in the book.
Anna Thygesen, an expert in communication and proprietor of the communications agency We Do Communication, has great respect for Frederik now publicly recognizing his poor speech skills.
"It is very good for the Crown Prince to report because self-perception is always perceived positively. So thumbs up for his honesty, "says Anna Thygesen. The communications expert also points out that it will not be easier for Frederik that he will always be measured against his mother, who is considered a dazzling speaker and communicator."

"In the book, Crown Princess Mary gives her opinion of why self-esteem fails her husband when he is giving a speech. For, according to Mary, Frederik expresses himself in writing.
"Frederik has the words in himself, but he just has to get it right from the brain to his mouth. He often has a very special way of saying things and would like to tell you in pictures, but it can make it difficult to be precise and concise within one or the other frame, "says Frederik's great love and favorite sparring partner"

more information
Royal Run åbner i dag for tilmelding | Kongehuset
"In connection with the launch of Royal Run in May 2017, the Crown Prince stated: "When I'm 50 years old, I'll celebrate the day with a race where all of Denmark can join. I've always loved sports and physical activity, and not least running. It gives you joy, well-being and energy. Run must be a race aimed at the experienced runners, but equally to those who tie the running shoes for the first time and everyone is welcome regardless of age. I hope that a lot of people will join the Royal Run for next years when we have to run together through five of Denmark's beautiful cities ".

More from the new portrait book

Crown Princess Mary: Frederik just totally blew me away.
https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...35227816664642


- I was spellbounded. He really blew me away! This beautiful man, who also seemed beautiful inside - positive and humorous, experienced and traveled. He was completely this worldly man, the Tarotwoman talked about, tells Crown Princess Mary about the first meeting with Crown Prince Frederik in the new portrait book on the occasion of his 50th birthday next year.

Mary is actually on her way to a friends party with a friend when some of her friends instead persuade her to take them to the town. Here she meets the Danish Crown Prince and Mary tells that she and Frederik fell startet talking and simply never stopped again.

"It ended with Frederik and I and two others went to a nightclub at King's Cross where we danced and continued the dance and talk.

- I was not home before at three-four. in the morning. Frederik dropped me off in a taxi, and before it disappeared around the corner, he asked for my phone number. I gave it to him and got a little good night kiss on the cheek, says Mary.

Mary quickly finds out that it is not quite easy to fall in love with a future king. Frederik and Mary often have to miss each other, and Mary Donaldson who is deeply in love walks around Sydney and hears Dido's "Lord with me" when she misses him too much.

It succeeds them for over a year to hold their relationship private, but then Mary is no longer allowed to be at peace. She is followed wherever she walks and stands by journalists and photographers who rudder in trash cans trying to find eveything out about her or at least something.

One of the experiences Mary tells about is New Year's Eve 2001, where she flies to Hamburg, is picked up by Frederik's good friend Jeppe Handwerk and his girlfriend, Birgitte. Those three drive by car through Jutland.

"And in some dark place where it just snowed and snowed, we stopped at a resting place, and Frederik suddenly came there. Then I jumped into his car, Mary says.

Crown Prince Frederik in the new book: The meeting with Mary was a meeting with my soulmate.
https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...35227816664642

- To me there was something unexplained attractive about her! First of all, a very humble/calm human being, and so the way Mary moved on, her deep voice, which was incredibly fascinating. And then we talked extremely well together, he says.

"In the beginning, I thought it was a little too good to be true. Perhaps it was just me - first time in Australia, Olympic euphoria on all street corners - and so in the middle of it all, you meet the woman who is just amazing.

"It was not just a crush, but just as much the feeling of having met a soul mate," says the Crown Prince in the book.

I hope this book is in English also for I want one when it comes out. IMHO they are just amazing and adorable and work so hard for Denmark and their charities, They are the future of Denmark and with their gorgeous children it is well secured. QM must be so proud of him and what he is doing.

Tarotwoman? Did Mary really go to one prior to meeting Frederick (to inquire about her future husband)?

I think it's one of those things where you have a group of girlfriends and you all decide to do something fun, out of the ordinary, like get your palm read or a tarot reading etc. You know, "you will meet a tall dark handsome stranger who will change your life forever . . . . " It's all just fun and not something you take seriously or believe is really going to happen in the real world . . . yeah right!

She was at a Sydney market and just bumped in to one who said certain things about her future. I don't think she took it that seriously.

It did turn out, that some of the predictions were correct, but ....
perhaps they are vague enough to fit in in most things. I don't know.
