Lovely pictures. I wonder if we'll see one of them as the family Christmas card. Josephine looks so cute in Isabella's sweater; and she got flowers, too. I think it's good that Mary allows her children to wear recycled clothing. Even royalty needs to be practical.

Taking in the view.

The air being so fresh, clear and crisp that you simply can't help filling your lungs.
You look at the grey-green mountains and the dark grey sea with blocks of ice floating around.
The cool wind blowing away your sleepyness, the insects being busy over the low vegetation. They are busy, very busy, because the summer is short and winter is coming.
Then you start to hear: the cries of the seagulls, the barks and growls and fightings among the almost ferrell sledge dogs.
Every scent you smell is clear, unfiltered by pollution. Every sound you hear is clear, unfiltered by the noise of traffic. Every color you see is crystal clear, unfiltered in the clear air.
You look at the ice in the fjord, the endlessly changing pattern of ice as the blocks change position in the sea.
Later on in the day, as the temperature go up a little more you may hear the faint sound like thunder of a faraway glacier calving yet another iceberg.

- Then you go inside and turn on your B&O Tv-set in your living room to watch the morning news...
When Alexandra many years ago first visited Greenland, she looked at the wooden houses in the hamlets and thought people were poor - until she went inside one house and saw a 28'' B&O (analogue) TV-set in the small living room.

An HQ pic, some of you may appreciate: http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/542/7/x...inseparret.jpg
Thank you so much Muhler for your word picture of what the Crown Princely family is currently experiencing. Thank you also for posting the video link that shows how the children are also reacting to the energy that must make Greenland sing with excitement during the very short summer! The family picture will, I am sure, be a Christmas card this year-I will bet on it

article by Billed Bladet
VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary og kronprins Frederik nyder livet i Grønland | Billed Bladet

"At the dock welcomed the royal couple and Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent to the citizens of Narsaq who had turned large numbers to provide the Royals a fine welcome. Upon receipt children went back aboard the Dannebrog, while their parents enjoyed an afternoon in the city. Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik visited both a slaughterhouse, a childcare center, a nursing home and a museum in Narsaq, before returning to Dannebrog, where the children waited."


I hope we see more pictures of them in Narsaq. I believe there are two pics, one where Frederik is wearing a blue sweater and another of Mary inside a building

Thank you one and all for all the fantastic links. Those pictures are just wonderful and ITA w/the growing chorus, Greenland is a stunningly beautiful place.

W/all that fresh air and running around, I have a feeling it was easy to get the Four Musketeers off to bed tonight. :)

Oh my Dear little Vincent... Oops and then he just disappears in the grass... Exactly as on their skiing holiday earlier this year.

Tv2 gallery of Christian being very happy for his gift. He lifted it up in the air to much excitement of the people.
http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/samfund/2014...n-med-sweatere

Here are pics of F&M visiting College of Food Sciences and Knowledge Centre. The possibility that the children were with here as well was there, but F&M told they had become quite tired and had been "allowed" to stay at home on Dannebrog. (Click in the pics to enlarge them)
Vores hverdag på INUILI: Kronprinseparrets besøg på Inuili den 1. august 2014.

Although we have got so many pictures, galleries and very good coverage - I do hope we will get pictures from the remaining part of dayw the next days. Yesterday, they for example visited a elderly home.

Many thanks to all who posted the wonderful links. Great Photos. I know when it comes to children we shouldn't have favourites, but I really love little Vincent. Can't help but notice how rugged up every one is. Isn't it Summer there?? Fred and Mary look very relaxed as parents of lively children.

Thanks for the video, Roskilde.

M&F had basically always planned for their children to see Greenland and now they are old enough understand what is going on.
They have prepared the children by showing them maps and telling them about Greenland, how big and how beautiful it is.

Even if the children will not be present at all the official events, they will have opportunities to enjoy themselves onboard Dannebrog or perhaps go fishing like Frederik and farbror (father's brother = paternal uncle) Joachim did, when they visited Greenland. (They were IIRC around nine or ten years old).

Thanks for these pictures. I like that this family is very down to earth, Fred is at best at such occasions. It's hard to control 4 kids and I like the fact that they don't try to do the usual stiff royal thing with them but let them be kids.

A BT gallery of M&F and their children greeting the locals in the town of Nasaq: Se billederne: Kronprins-familien for første gang sammen i Grønland | www.bt.dk

Ironically it will be warmer the further north they'll go.
In southern Greenland the temperature is a balmy 7-9 degrees C, but in the capital town of Nuuk further north the temperature can easily go past 20 degrees C at this time of year.
Perhaps it has something to do with the Gulf Stream and the strait between Canada and Greenland becoming narrower, because summer in eastern Greenland is only a few degrees above freezing.

I think it's a very good idea they don't bring their children, also the oldest, along to all events. It's better that the children think this trip is fun rather than a duty.

I have a feeling more pics will be added to this gallery over the coming week.

Igaliku: Hestene bød velkommen | Sermitsiaq.AG

At the end of the visit at the hamlet of Igaliku yesterday, Frederik asked the hetman of the hamlet, (I think) Josef Motzfeldt, whether he had an ATV. (Christian is familiar with such vehicles from home. Where they are often used around the various manors). He had, even though this ATV is a bit larger than those home in DK, so with Christian as driver they drove up in the hills, with the rest of Christian's family trailing behind.

Here they had a look at some fifteen horses (Iceandic ponies I think) and numerous sheep.
The animals fascinated the children and then it was time to leave for Dannebrog moored at another hamlet. The children wouldn't have minded staying a little bit longer, clearly enjoying the visit.

- I read somewhere that the press accomodated oboard Triton has a limited window for communicating with DK. Priority is after all to military channels, and the usual duties of a patrol frigate in arctic waters. So I think we can expect the reports coming in around the same time every day.

Prins Christian gik i land i regnvejr i Alluitsup Paa | Billed Bladet

Today, Saturday, was rainy when the family visited the hamlet Alluitsup Paa.

And here Christian took part in his first kaffemik = A kind of communal coffee get together. When possible outside. With cakes and cookies and of course coffee. There is a similar tradition in Southren Jutland.

The other children had, perhaps wisely, opted to stay onboard Dannebrog.

Yes, and in many articles from the Greenland media I see they simply call Vincent and Josephine their Greenlandic names. In one of the articles they for example write: (...) the children Christian, Isabella, Minik and Ivalo.
Quite charming, I think.

Here's an article from Sermitsiaq where a Josef Motzfeldt tells about a cozy private trip he had yesterday with M&F and all children after the official program had ended. On an ATV he and Christian drove out to 15 horses.
https://translate.google.com/transla...mmen&edit-text=

- So we drove around with Prince Christian as a driver, first in the village since we drove up to the King's Road where the horses were grazing. Prince Christian stopped the ATV and was good to handle all the horses. Later on his parents and siblings came too us. Frederik with the twins and Mary with Isabella. After a good time with the horses we drove all back to Itilleq where Dannebrog waited. The little children had difficulty saying goodbye and would had like to have extended their stay with their new playmates and horses, tells Josef Motzfeldt.

Two pictures taken by Josef himself
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=Yz_x4sPD
http://sermitsiaq.ag/sites/default/f...?itok=-J3JqzJh

And here TV2 video from today:
Her modtages Kronprinsparret med klapsalver på Grønland | GO'

Yep, sunshine yesterday and rainy today. Mary also laughing says at their arrival: "Yes, it's a somewhat different weather today" and Christian adds: "Yes, one is completely wet."

But this dosen't prevent big smiles and TV2 observes that many showed up and the very popular couple were welcomed with applause.

Their second part of today is in the town Nanortalik and it starts about now (Greenland is three hours behind DK) And in Nanortalik there should be sunshine.

Such a lovely visit and its only the start of the second day!
Love how the children are involved already shaking people's hands.
smiles all around. Love that they include the children at the welcomings and then Frederik and Mary go off to do the other events.

this photo of F&M with little kids and the elderly are cute
http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/543/7/1...rinsparret.jpg
http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/543/7/1...rinsparret.jpg

a special place for both, and im sure they are just thrilled that their children are with them and they have also taking a liking to Greenland.

Another article from the first day at Narsaq
with pictures that i dont think have been posted

Narsaq: Lærenem kronprins | Sermitsiaq.AG

most are from the events Frederik and Mary went to, the child care and elderly house, plus the slaughter house for Frederik.

the kids greeting people, just so cute

Love the ones of Mary chatting with the lady as they walked.
the rain did not change the mood.
I see the purple bear from the Mary foundation,

this one of Frederik with the little girl is priceless

A lot can happen when you log out of the forums and don't return until the next evening! Thank you everyone for sharing the photos and reports of the family's visit to Greenland. I love how Mary and Frederik bought the children along, they look like they're having a fun time and I agree Roskilde, it's nice how the Greenlandic media use Vincent and Josephine's Greenlandic names - they're both lovely but my favourite is Ivalo. The photos of them shaking hands with the public are too cute.

I agree. I think the CP family are starting to become my favourite little family within the DRF.

What a nice tradition. (Now I feel like some coffee! )
