It seems the portrait of Mary is in black and white. The photos are very good. I would love to know where in the palace they have been hanging for three years, since 2013.

I like the photos, just I do not like Prince Frederick with his hand in his waist, it looks wire for me!

All three photos were nicely done. Frederik and Mary's solo shots look very regal, but them one of them together is my favorite. in profile but the smiles on their faces are very warm

A short clip of Testino commenting on the new portrait of Frederik and Mary.

"Mario Testino, who alternates between the more classic royal portraits where there is emphasis on the great room, the old furniture and the symbolic locations and the more immediate moments between the royal couples."

"In particular, he emphasizes the portrait of Frederik and Mary, photographed in a moment when Mary adjusts Frederiks *'herring salad'.
Their smiles feels genuine, and the image may not have the perfect composition, but the atmosphere is just perfect.

- I am always looking for that special moment, where the portrayed reveal a bit of their personality."


*sildesalat is the Danish word used. It means the thingies hanging from Frederik's collar

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2016.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As you know it was Frederik who opened the exhibition with photos by Mario Testina, with the photos of M&F being the biggest attraction.

Mario Testina received Frederik and remarked: "He looks even better today".
Actually the press were not supposed to photograph Frederik near the royal photos, but the photographer changed his mind in the spur of the moment. - (And that was probably a good idea!)
When asked to be photographed in front of the photo of himself in navy gala, Frederik joked: "I won't pose in the same manner".
It was actually the first time Frederik saw the photos in a large scale: "I'm genuinely well pleased".

The photos were made at Amalienborg in 2013.
But also the BRF are a part of the exhibition. They include Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, as well as W&K, but also the Dutch Regent Couple and Mette-Marit and Haakon. There are also photos of Princess Diana.

About M&F Mario Testino said: "I want to communicate what they really are. because the Danish CP-couple are fantastic, they are cool without loosing their seriousness. They have their boundaries but at the same time they know they have their roles. They represent the country, which they will fight for - it almost makes the tears flow. The kind of sense of responsibility they have is impressive".

As for Mette-Marit, Mary and Queen Maxima he says: "They are very responsible, they are hard-working and they are not there for the jewels. They take their roles very serious, some times even mroe serious than their husbands".

Today Crown Prince Frederik participates as guest of honor at the official dinner with Global Green Growth Forum (3GF)
"Global Green Growth Forum aims to strengthen cooperation between governments, companies and organizations for sustainable economic growth."

Thanks, Polyesco.

Isn't it considerate of Frederik to keep his hands warm in his pockets so that he doesn't startle his guests by having cold hands when he greets them.

lol. it is.
It must be a little awkward to be asked to take so many pictures and selfies. I wouldn't know what to do with my hands.

Here is arriving, with a warm smile and hands

TV2 today had a long segment with Frederik, who today attended a fishing trip with Save the Children.

This is for children, usually from homes with social or economic issues, or lonely children, who otherwise wouldn't go on such an outing.

A twelve year old girl was detailed with the task of of instructing Frederik in how to put bait on the hook and throw the line. He probably already knew, but played along anyway.
After that he helped prepare and eat the fish they had caught and answered loads of questions from the children.

I'm sure our news-diggers will find clips and pics later.

Thanks, Northern Princess.

Pics 3 and 4 show the girl who "instructed" Frederik.

The dark haired girl in yellow was very fascinated with Frederik.

Lovely pictures pictures.

That's exactly why Frederik and Mary are so hugely beloved and respected by their people! They meet their people - not by obligation, but obviously because they enjoy it.

Yet one of their unofficial/secret events ... Last month it was Mary who secretly met up in the Nørrebro hall and ate her dinner of paper plates with lonely Danes.

3 pictures from the Danish royal family's Facebook page:

9 pictures from Save the Children:

All the many comments provide again an obvious picture of how popular F&M is in the population.


ADDED:


BT article
Kronprinsen underviser børn: Det gør mig glad

- It's nice to feel that I can help to give a little. Be teaching and helpful. It rubs off on the kids and it makes me happy. It's basically the same way I deal with my own children. There is a joy in being together in nature, to start up a fire and cook food over it - it's like therapy, says Crown Prince Frederik.

At home, he has four children to play with but Saturday Crown Prince Frederik spent a day in the company of children from Save the Children's family experience club in Furesø.

The 66 family experience clubs in Denmark are created to give vulnerable and disadvantaged families the opportunity for socializing and excursions with peers, while also boosting their network.

Crown Prince Frederik showed both skill with a fishing rod and skills in the kitchen when he went fishing Saturday and made campfire food to vulnerable children.
