nice family outing. the pics of Frederik with Christian are so cute, and it looks like the twins enjoyed the beach more this year
Lovely pic, looks like they had a great time, the children look to really enjoy their time at the beach.

The magazine do not always have their information correct, but it may be possible, because we know they love to be in Trend and visit their friends on Birkelse goods during their summer vacations.

It seems like they have spent their entire summer vacation home in Denmark. Which does not surprise me.
1. It becomes more and more popular to stay at home in Denmark, also because our last summers have been with sunshine and 30 degrees.
2. A large trip to Greenland with all four children are waiting in a week.
3. Where we others might think it's exciting and nice to travel during the holidays, I can only imagine F&M are just the opposite. They travel a lot with their work so holiday for them is not to travel, but just relax at home in a cottage.

Today, there are the annual family photosession on Gråsten. We never know who shows up. But with the Crown Prince family home in Denmark the chances are good for them to show up. And I'm pleased it's today, because I will go on holiday tomorrow
Thanks for the information. It's sometimes nice to just stay in your home country and holiday with friends. I guess it's too short for them to travel with the kids then attend the photoshot then travel again.

You're welcome.

I saw BB had uploaded this picture with the text: We wish you a nice sunny weekend with one of our favorite pictures of Crown Princess Mary and little Princess Josephine. The picture was taken at Gråsten last year and we think it reeks of love and lovely summer atmosphere. Best wishes from all of editors.

After reading about CP Mary and family going to Skagen over the years, I never thought that will be a place I will go one day, but life is funny and I've now been there.

Our ship, which was on it's last cruise of the Baltic Sea for the year as the seasons were changing, was - I think - the first cruise ship to call at Skagen.

(If not the first ship, the first for this cruise line - but I think it was the first actual ship of any line.)

It was a bit touch and go, as there is no port facilities yet able to cope with a ship of that size, so we had to go to shore on the tenders.

But, with everyone on board - and I think on land - biting their nails, it looked like we weren't going to get there due to such a dense fog, the advance party couldn't see their hand in front of them, let alone anything else.

After many hours, it lifted enough for thousands of us to descend on charming Skagen - and what a lovely welcome we got from the locals.

As we were pronouncing Skagen the Danish way, all the Danes were pronouncing it the English way for our "comfort".

We had all been informed of the artistic legacy of Skagen from an onboard lecture, that was then on constant replay on the ship's television system, so we were pretty informed about the place.

Many options were available, and no Muhler, though I was tempted to stand with one foot in the North Sea and the other in the Baltic, I ended up going to a castle and having a Danish pastry at a watermill, as a more Danish experience to have.

(And yes I know, it's not called a Danish in Denmark - we got the story about Vienna from many people.)

Lots of people, with their bikes, came to have a look at us in their town, and lots of other more "official" locals had set large marquees up, with displays of local products.

Many buses and guides had been rounded up, as people went to visit the sand-dunes, light-houses and buried churches.

Blue skies and warm sunshine after the fog went.

Hopefully, Skagen will stay on the itinerary as I'm sure there is great competition from other coastal towns about the Baltic - Estonia missed out on us, so we had a second day in Denmark.

Many people told us they are hopeful that this will provide employment for the young people of the area, as otherwise they need to leave for jobs away from home and family.

A lovely place, but particularly, lovely, lovely people.

Thanks for your story, Sun Lion.

Yes, Skagen is a little gem except at the peak of the tourist season. Too crowded then.
As you may recall M&F have been holidaying there a number of times.

The DRF's communication chef Lene Balleby confirms in a Danish magazine out today that our Crown Prince Family will move into Gråsten Castle most of July month and will take over the summer tradition in Gråsten after Grandmother 'Mormor' Ingrid. Margrethe and Henrik are in Greenland the whole July until the 24th, so maybe it's also Frederik and Mary and children who will be the hosts for the annual gathering at Gråsten in late July?

If it's all are correct it's lovely and right in Frederik's grandmother Ingrid's spirit

With Gråsten as their summer base the CP-family has good opportunity to take off some days or weeks to Trend, Blokhus, Skagen etc. and to their close friends in Jutland.

The magazine also mentions that Margrethe already in 2004 said she hoped that Frederik and Mary and their children in a few years would take over Gråsten.

I wait to be absolutely sure before Billedbladet (or more trustworthy media also confirms it) though.

Thanks, Roskilde.

That's a nice touch that will be much appreciated in Southern Jutland.
And M&F are eventually supposed to take over Gråsten Manor.

Wonder if they will have a little holiday at Trend as well?

Im sure Frederik has very fond memories of Gråsten Manor.
And Mary and the kids seem to enjoy it to, this is where we have seen Frederik and Mary horseback riding right?

I think they enjoy Trend too but Gråsten Manor, might offer more options. And a nice touch to this part of DK.

I can understand why Margrethe would be ready to have her son and daughter-in-law take over this role. Hope that they can enjoy the place for many years to come.

This local North German Newspaper writes that Frederik, Mary and all four children will watch the ring riding parade at Gråsten Slot the 19th July:

Die Kronprinzenfamilie wird beim Gravensteiner Ringreiterumzug zuschauen

It fits well with the Crown Prince Family will spend much of their summer holiday at Gråsten

This is exactly there we see F&M horseback riding in the morning in the forrest around. It's a nice place for summer holidays. Also close to Legoland.

And they all seems to truly enjoy being there.

That said, I much hope such a young family (in the coming years) have the opportunity to spend their private holiday whereever they want.

Yes I have never heard anything else than they have driven there by car and it takes about 3 hours from Copenhagen.

I guess the Royal Lifeguard will post sentries at Gråsten when M&F are in residence.
So this year it may be M&F and their children who will stand on the stairs at the changing of the guards on is is Wednesdays?
Or perhaps that's a privilege only for the Monarch?

It would be logical, that it's only for the Monarch who has the residence
changed to Gråsten (or Marselisborg). M&F are on a private holiday.

I didn't find anything about their holiday in Croatia from 2007 in this thread, but it seems after this North-Jutland trip they travelled to Croatia to make a boat-tour around the islands:

The Crown Prince family are just now holding their private summer vacation.

Here a look back at a sweet summer picture from last year in Legoland.
Josephine and Vincent with mom in one of the children rollercoaster.
Christian and Bella tried the more wild rollercoaster with daddy.

I can't resist sweet Josephine's sunshine smile to mother

F&M and children are now in South Jutland holding their summer holiday.

BB out tommorow have these sweet pictures of them out on a bicycle trip in the nature with the word: "There is so lovely here."

(Very likely taken that day (last Monday) where Frederik was in London)

Nice seeming them on their bikes. Frederik probably got home yesterday from Wimbledon.

Looking forward to their trip to Legoland, they always seem to have a blast

Billed Bladet met Mary on a bike trip with Christian, Bella, Vincent, Josephine and Ziggy near Gråsten while daddy that day was at visit in Wimbledon.

Lovely picture: https://scontent-vie1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...g=eyJpIjoidCJ9

Billedbladet have a very good and respectful relationship with the royals and always ask if it are okay they take a few pictures. It does that Billedbladet always gets something back the other way around and the royals like to say a some words and give the time so they can take a few pictures. A win win situation.

Mary says to BB:

"It is so wonderful here ! And we will be here our entire holiday, and it is the first time we have to be here so long."

Frederik and Mary has chosen to hold their summer holidays for most of July at Gråsten Castle and media suggests that there may be a generational change on the way.

Queen Margrethe has previously stated that it is F&M and children who some day are planer to take over Gråsten Castle. And that it is to happen in her lifetime.
