Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2013.
Frederik dybt rørt - Frederik deeply moved.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Each year Frederik presents grants from the Anders Lassen Foundation, to soldiers or relatives of soldiers who have been killed in action.

This year three grants for 25.000 DKK were presented to each child of the Jæger (Army special forces soldier) Rene Brink Jacobsen, who was killed in Afghanistan in January this year. His children are Sara, aged 13. Maja, aged 10 and one year old Thor, whom Frederik took his time chatting to and getting to know.

Another recipient was the British senior sergeant, Andy Peat, who was on the same patrol as Rene Jacobsen and who distinguished himself by covering the patrol while Rene Jacobsen was treated and brought out of the line of fire.
It is the first time a foreign soldier recieve this honor.
However, regulations prohibit senior sergeant Andy Peat, from recieving the cash grant, so his wife who was there too, recieved it on his behalf whereupon she presented it to the widow of Rene Jacobsen, Camilla Jacobsen.

There were other recipients, from the Frogman Corps, but they remain anonymous.

Frederik gave a speech telling who Anders Lassen was, basically comparing the recipients with him, while maintaining eye contact with Camilla Jacobsen and her children. Here Frederik's eyes teared up.
- Anders Lassen VC, was one of the founding members of Special Boat Squadron and he was killed on 9th April 1945 in Northern Italy. Five years to the day Denmark was occupied. (*) The Frogman Corps is directly modelled after Special Boat Squadron and as such Frederik know the story very well indeed.

Camilla Jacobsen said afterwards about Frederik practically addressing the speech to her and her children: "I think he wanted to signal that the person and elite soldier Anders Lassen was, in regards to courage and dedication, were some of the qualities the Crown Prince wanted to tell me that Rene also possessed.
The Crown Prince was good in the way he talked to us and he was sweet (in the way he) in greeting the children and looked them in the eyes and asked about their school. He took his time. Our little boy really charmed his way into him (Frederik).
The Crown Prince is easy to speak with and very down to earth. I think it went well and it was very pleasant.
No matter whether you are a Crown Prince or an ordinary Dane, you can sense the feelings of those who have lost someone dear. You can sense the big grief. That is something, I'm sure, that moved the Crown Prince. There is no doubt about that. That made a big impression on me.
He did indeed take the whole seance with us and the frogmen very serious.
To us it is a huge loss to have lost Rene. But I think that when we get further into the future/down the line, we will think back on this day as a big recognition of the work my husband did.
It sure means a lot with the recognition. That will also stand as a very strong and vivid experience for especially the children that they met the Crown Prince. That may only happen once in their lives".

She goes on to say that even though BB bring the story because of Frederik, it nevertheless means a lot to her, because it means that her husband and what he did, will be mentioned and thus in a way honored.

(*) It has been suggested that Anders Lassen had a death wish towards the end of the war. Something that is not uncommon with soldiers in war. Anders Lassen was when he died 26 IIRC, that means he basically all his adult life had been at war, and a pretty intense war. He had lived a life on the edge and it was basically all he knew. - And now the war was ending... now what? Going home? To a job in a factory? Office? Shop? He didn't even have an education, he was an ordinary seaman, a soldier. Now what? Getting up in the morning, go to work, go home to his wife, (if he could find one), day after day, year after year? Until he goes mad?
The prospect of peace brings nothing but hopelesness.

ADDED: An article and pic from the Defence site: http://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/ove...assen2013.aspx
Of Frederik with senior sergeant Andy Peat. Nice to see his wife and duaghter there too.

The reasoning for Andy Peat to recieve the honor: http://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/ove...t_AndyPeat.jpg
He is singled out for extraordinary bravery and determination. Perhaps a medal coming up? He deserves it.

And for the children of Rene Jacobsen: http://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/ove...egat_Brink.jpg
In honor of their father who fell 3th January 2013.

"The world’s best wave windsurfers are gearing up for the 2013 KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup in Klitmøller, Denmark from September 16-22 and the spotlight will be even brighter with HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark attending as the new patron of the event. The Crown Prince, a former Danish Navy Seal, accomplished sailor and iron man triathlete, will try his hand at windsurfing on Sunday September 15, before the pros take over"

"The presence of the Crown Prince is another stage in the organic growth of this event out of the passion of the local windsurfing community. “We are proud and honoured that His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik finds the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup worth supporting,” Finn Jorsal, the president of the Friends of Cold Hawaii, the association behind the event, said. “It’s a boost, that gives us national as well as international status. That can make it possible for us, to make this event even bigger.”"


Frederik will be there on Sunday, here is the schedule
Schedule » KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup news feed

It looks like Frederik will go against the "young guns"..get a tour of the venue, and have a jet ski session

"This will not be HRH Crown Prince Frederik’s first windsurf related visit to Klitmøller. On the 23rd of August 2011 he inaugurated the newly constructed waterfront, and the new clubhouse “Hummerhuset”. Among others, “Hummerhuset” houses the local surf club NASA (North Atlantic Surf Association), and during the World Cup the clubhouse will be transformed into the KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup headquarters"

And for those who can't get enough of pics of Frederik in a wetsuit, here is a 21 pic gallery of him on jetskis: Se billederne: Kronprinsen giver den gas på jetski | www.bt.dk

As you can tell, the weather at Cold Hawai was ideal. - Surfing in warm water is for sissies.

The articles (and pictures not least) tells that Frederik several times fell into the water ... aaaand once also in the reeds

Frederik is a sportsman and performs many sports brilliantly, but surfing is apparently not his strongest side Halfway during the race with the children, and then he had fell into the water several times and all the children had reached the finish line, Frederik decided to paddle into land with a smile and the words "If you really aren't better, you should better leave it"

Hello everyone,
Is there a place where one might find a comprehensive list of all of Crown Prince Frederik's current patronages? On the official royal website it just says he is patron of "many" national and international organizations. Beyond that I've seen smatterings of listings here and there, but nothing that simply lists them all in one place. Thank you for any assistance you may have!

Thank you! I am running them through Google Translate to get the idea of what they are. On the English version of the royal website it just says:

The Crown Prince is a patron of a great many national organisations, institutions, and foundations and is an honorary member of various associations and societies.

I wish they would put the complete list in English as well, since some of the Organizations aren't translating quite right via Google Translate.

Thank you, again, for pointing me toward the Danish page!

Good grief! That woman again!

Does she have to plant herself in every possible picture?

Poor Frederik, if she accidentally sinks her teeth into him, he'll have to life forever...
Or she might accidentally strike him on the head with one of her hooves, trying to do a selfie...

Alas, but perhaps the hair-challenged gentleman told Frederik a joke about blondes?
