Great pictures and video! Really loved watching the kids in action. Christian's comment about the Prime Minister was quite spot on. Looks like he's already learning the workings of the government.

I loved watching the segment with Christian and Isabella, even though I couldn't understand what they were saying. They looked like they were having a great time, and they seem like very well brought up and charming kids.

Exerpts from article in Billed Bladet #41, 2012.
Mary og Frederiks små TV-stjerner - Mary and Frederik's little TV-stars.
Written by our art-reporter Ulrik Ulriksen.

This will be focusing on the children.
The prize was awarded to the children's book author Jakom Martin Strid, whose books are read aloud for M&F's children, so our reporter asked whether their children had a say in wh should be awarded.
Mary replied: "Yes, you can say that the children has taken part in the decision. In their very own way".

Christian and Bella were also filmed with their parents at the National Museum for Art, which in that way got a lot of needed PR.
(I haven't seen the clips yet, so any Danish member please correct me).
They were seen in a workshop at the museum displaying their creative talents.
Christian being the older and more experienced threw himself into the creative process: "I think I'm going to make a porcupine". Bella on the other hand watched her brother before she decided what to do, with the words: "Christian. (*) The scissors, please".

Then it was time for a tour of the museum. Isabella spotted an abstract culture: "That's an elephant". - And perhaps it really was, our reporter couldn't tell....
And Christian was facinated by an artwork that looked like a giant foot to him. (**)

- The Crown Princely Couple very consiously use art in their upbringing of their children and in that way they develope Christian and Isabella's very own and personal view of the world. At the same time it's alovely way to play-learn knowledge. Both for adults and children.
"This here is merly a tool to express yourself in a creative way. It perhaps also gives them a good strength to further develope not just creativity but also other skills and abillitied later on in life", said Mary in the segment about the use of art in bringing up children. Frederik too had something to say for both his children and for others, who are interested in art-experiences.
"My best advise is that you go to the National Museum for Art, where there is a huge collection. And then it's about being curious and be prepared for that everything is game, and that you will be met by everything and then embrace it and relate to it. It's simply down with the guard, relax in the shoulders and enjoy what you see. And let the picture absorb you for a moment", said Frederik and (he) could from his spot on the sideline experience how his two oldest children followed his advise, while they strolled aroud the National Musesum for Art in Copenhagen.
At the same time it must have been a special experience to watch the little ones take in art with the mother's milk (idiom). Just as Frederik himself did by Queen Margrethe many year ago.
"My mother is very much interested in painting and drawing. I also made my own experiences in regards to painting and drawing, when I was little. My patience and calm wasn't good enough however", concluded the Crown Prince, who thereby acknowledged that he isn't a great artist himself.

(*) So no nickname for him it seems, just Christian.

(**) Children are the world's best art critics, period!
They are completely unbiased and they look at things with from all sorts of angles, while adults have a tendency to become cultist, elitist and snobbish when it comes to art.
