The text in one of the Greenlandic papers suggested that while Bella and Christian soldierd on, the twins were understandably by now less enthusiastic about shaking hands with people and being in focus.
They are after all only three years old and a week is a very long time at that age. So it is no wonder if the novelty effect is starting to wear off and they begin to think it's not that fun anymore.

But they have shown that they can deal with a crowd and that they can be well behaved and polite and that they are not frightned by many people. (I guess the hamlets in Greenland is a manageble size for small children).
That will build up confidence for their next public apperance.

Much more from their day in Nuuk:

It cleared up later in the day and the temperature reached plus degrees and Minik and Ivalo participated in the rest of the day's events The newspapers noted that the twins were good at giving hands as they along with mom and dad visited "The Minik and Ivalo Fund." Even if sometimes it was with the wrong hand

Gallery from the first part of their day
Stort galleri: Kronprinsfamilien charmerede igen alle | Sermitsiaq.AG

Gallery from their last part of their day - we see Frederik play the old Greenlandic game. Our Ironman had to surrender - the younger alet won. To his great delight. It's not every day you win over a king (as he is quoted saying)
http://sermitsiaq.ag/stort-galleri-k...de-inuit-games

We need to highlight Bella's costume - she is really implemented.
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=uVqSm4bn

Josephine such a curiously little girl, yet always close to mother
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=6oLJyJVw

Bella happy for her present
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=eu3s_emP

Frederik described the welcome as overwhelming with so many people. Also a change for the children. In the small villages showed up the entire village, but but but - it means about 60-100 people. Nuuk has probably been a bit overwhelming for four children as well.

BB video, picture and article from Nuuk.
VIDEO: Isabella og Christian fik flot modtagelse i Nuuk | Billed Bladet

Frederik and Mary are interviewed troughout the end. They tell they spent their two days off with hiking and exploring the nature. They also fished a lot and Mary says they caught a lot of cods.

Again, they tell how happy and overwhelming they are about the welcome they have received everywhere. Also the children have been playing a lot with peers children on the trip and have got experiences for life.

At the end, Mary tells a charming thing. BB's reporter says he thinks it has been touching to see how all in Greenland call the twins for Minik and Ivalo. F&M agree and Mary tells how the twins have presented themselves as "Hi my name is Ivalo" and "Hi, I'm Minik" when they greeted people

*
ADDED:
Greenlandic media reports that the mayor Asii Chemnitz Narup today at 9:45am will say goodbye to the Crown Prince family in Nuuk Airport.
So now, this fantastic trip is over. What a privilege it has been to get so very close to the family every day. Definitely my favorite royal tour!

Three nice pics from Royalista:

Thanks, Roskilde.

The fashionistas among you will no doubt notice Josephine's hair ornament in this picture.

Frederik tried this Innuit game, Pull Stick. - Alas, he lost:
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=Foef_5eX

We also learn that during their day off they went into a fjord to do some fishing.

Our Australian friends on this forum will no doubt appreciate the Australian flags being waved by the crowd. Mary's first home is not forgotten: http://sermitsiaq.ag/se-video-nuummi...ede-mary-frede

For those among you who are very particular about the details of clothes, also regional Greenlandic suits, here are the specifics: http://sermitsiaq.ag/staar-bag-royal...ationaldragter

Christian: His west Greenlandic suit was made in the capital Nuuk, in the sewing room Kittat. Five seamstresses did the work under Jonna Kleist.

Isabella: Her east Greenlandic suit was made in the studio Skæven in Tasiilaq under Talia Ignatiussen.
And in Kalaallisuuliornermik Ilinniarfik in Sisimiut under Kirstine Berthelsen.

Minik aka Vincent: A Thule suit (northern Greenland) by two seamstresses Birthe Jensen and Tukummeq Peary in the small town of Quaanaq.

Ivalo aka Josephine: Also a Thule suit and also made by the two seamstresses above and also in Quaanaq.

Each of the four Greenlandic municipalities paid for a suit.

- In case you wonder: Greenlanders use "Danish" names. It stems back from the 1700's and onwards when Greenland was Christened. So Danish Christian names were adopted, later combined with Danish surnames.
Nowadays Greenland is more Christian than DK and the Greenlanders more faithful churchgoers than danes.

A little more trivia:
Flag of Greenland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name of the Greenlandic flag is Erfalasorput

It's the only Nordic flag without a cross. The Nordic flags are also known as cross-banners.
AFAIK Dannebrog and Erfalasorput are the only Nordic national flags with an official name.
Here are (some) of the others:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ross_Flags.png

As you can tell some of the cross banners are official flags of regions or islands.
Also the Shetland and Orkney Islands use cross banners, they were after all a part of the Nordic countries centuries ago.

- Did I remember to tell you that we are pretty obsessed with flags in this part of the world?

and a beautiful speech; thank you so much for posting! I can now understand why both the crown prince and princess were moved at this last evening in Nuuk, truly words spoken from the heart of a man who loves Greenland.

Large great pictures from Hola! Including some lovely close-up's of Bella in her national costume.
Calor familiar en el polo: El álbum de Federico y Mary de Dinamarca con sus hijos en Groenlandia

Now, Frederik, Mary and children may have arrived back home in Denmark. It only takes 4 hours in plane between Greenland-Denmark. But I thougt about something. We heard from the journalists that they flew together with the Crown Prince family to Greenland. They could even tell us that Frederik and Mary sat with the children at the first row in the plane.

But isn't there something about that Christian and Frederik rarely fly together? Maybe they make some exceptions sometimes. It would also be a circus to send two planes, one just after the other, to and from Greenland.

I think they might have made the same kind of exception the BRF made when William was allowed to fly with George. But I still think it's risky and I actually thought Mary and Frederik were careful about doing it (at least when they flew to Australia, Isabella and Vincent flew with Frederik and Christian and Josephine flew with Mary), but then earlier this year IIRC, they flew home from a vacation all together, so I don't know if they've stopped parting Frederik and Christian?

I don't know if it has been mentioned already, but I just saw on the telly that in addition to tomorrow's TV2 documentary on the trip, DR will also send a reportage on Monday.

I'm impressed by how well the children handled the trip. Mary and Frederik must be very proud!
Thanks to everyone who provided pictures, translations, summaries, etc. This was such a fun royal tour to follow.

First of all a big thank you to all for the links and information. Especially our Danish members for the extra info and insights, for translating videos and articles.

This trip has been wonderful from start to finish. You could tell from the start and during his speech that this was a trip Frederik and Mary were eager to do.
introduce their kids to Greenland, a great part of the kingdom of Denmark. Frederik and Mary looked emotional and so happy to see how their kids took a great liking to Greenland.

The kids did so well. I knew Christian and Isabella would do well, since they have been at other events; but Josephine was a revelation. Before we always saw her attached to Mary but now she went with Frederik, with her siblings and even on her on. Vincent was the more timid of the siblings but even at 3 years old he did well, shaking people's hands.
we saw how Christian is protective and attentive to his younger siblings, Josephine in particular, after so many years of seeing him with Isabella.

This trip must have meant alot to the people of Greenland, and truly one of the many highlights was seeing the family in their traditional outfits (and from all parts of Greenland).
too many lovely photos to mention, but i know I will be going back and seeing them again.

And of course, the cherry on top of this cake; Frederik in Uniform lol.
But really, smiles and closeness to the people was beautiful

That was a wonderful trip, indeed. An article from Daily Mail:

Muhler, what do you think about Crown Princess Mary's progress in Danish language (especially when she talked to the media in Greenland)?

Well, nothing new really.

She speaks with her usual pronounced accent.

Her understanding of Danish is clearly perfect.
Her responses are instant and fluent, so she was thinking in Danish.
I didn't notice any of her habitual mistakes. (Native English speakers often have problems with the endings in Danish words). That may be because she is improving (having children learning to speak and going to school benefits the parents too) or just a coincidence.
She is better at expressing herself than Frederik, but that's no news.

She may have been challenged a bit during this trip since the Greenlanders speak Danish with an accent. But it wouldn't be worse than rural accents and dialects in DK.

Thanks Archduchess Zelia

DR's reportage should be available online. In the program description for DR's program can we read: In an exclusive interview with DR the Crown Prince Couple look back at the highlights and gives an insight into the unique relationship that exists between the royal house and Greenland.

Pictures of the Crown Prince Family leaving Greenland today. They arrived to the airport where Nuuk's mayor Asii Chemnitz Narup said goodbye to them. In the first car with flags were Frederik and his girls, Bella and Ivalo. In the car behind, Christian, the nanny and Mary together with Vincent in the back seat. There were big smiles and waves from them all to the crowd at the airport.

All my friends love these photos and we think it has been a wonderful trip. I am sure the twins will be pleased to be home and back into their normal routine. They handled themselves very well tho. What a Summer it has been for them, firstly at Tisvilde then to Grasten playing with all the cousins & a trip to Legoland and then Greenland. An action packed summer for any 3 yr old.

You know something? Just like IMO the little Infantas of Spain during the Ceremonies of their Dad's Installation, I think the Twins did very, very well during this trip. Especially considering they are just Three. Well done to them and their Parents for preparing them so well too. :)

Thank you to all the Danish posters, you have made this trip so much more enjoyable for us non-Danes :)
What amazing parents and what great parenting skills! To have such well behaved 3 year olds doing what the twins did! WOW! I take my hat off to M&F!WOW! Well done.

A huge thank you to everyone who posted links to pics and info about this trip, it was greatly appreciated. It was an amazing trip. Bella is truly 'daddy's girl', Josephine really shone and showed her independence and Christian already shows he is aware of his position within the family. Vincent was the surprise for me. On most occasions when this family appear in public Vincent is the 'go-getter' but on this occasion he was extremely shy. Fred and Mary, well what can I say. It seems they have the Greenlanders close to the heart. I always love the PDA between this couple and you can see, if you look at Christian's reaction on one of the pics, that it's something they do regularly in front of their children hence the children being affectionate towards one another. Beautiful memories.

As so many times before it takes a child to see the obvious.

My daughter was looking over my shoulder when I was quickly going through a gallery and she noticed a detail about Josephine.

In a number of photos from the last day in Nuuk, Josephine was seen wrinkling her nose. I thought she was about to sneeze, had developed a cold or was just bored. But my daughter immediatly determined that Josephine didn't like the smell of fish.
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=d2seiKXr
Come to think of it it's the most plausible explanation.
(It can also be the smell of rotting seaweed, of whaleblubber (or just fat in general) being boiled. Whatever it was, it was something down the harbour.

There is also a picture of Christian on the same occasion where he is standing in front of the family with the eyes half closed and seems to be taking a deep breath through his mouth. So perhaps Josephine wasn't the only one who didn't like the smell?

I would also like to thank those who posted videos, photos and reports on the visit.
I'm a little sad that this visit is now over, but as others have said I'm sure lots of memories have been made on this trip, and that the children (as well as Mary and Frederik) will remember it for a long time. I thought Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine behaved so well throughout, it will be interesting to see if they accompany their parents on more royal engagements in Denmark. I loved Josephine's funny faces in Nuuk.

In about 10 minutes TV2's reportage about M&F and children in Greenland will begin...

As a sneak peak, TV2 have put this clip out at their website, where M&F tell it wasn't always that easy to get the children to wear their national costumes.

Mary: En udfordring at få dem i isbjørnebukser | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

Mary: - I think it's very lovely that they represent the entire Greenland different places with different costumes and I think the children took it so well, and they stood there beautiful and proud (a better translation?) in their national costumes.

But Mary reveals it perhaps not everyday has been easy to dress the children in them.

- There will be some challenges when you ask a three and a half year old boy to come down in a couple of polar bear pants, Mary tells with a smile and continues
- But they did it, and they looked so adorable and lovely and wonderful wearing them.
