I assumed S&L have been taking English lessons for years and/or when they knew the peeps were visiting they brushed up.

i found this article from a spanish newspaper, published in cotilleando

apparently, mary stayed in palma for 4 days, and the family stayed at Son Pericases, near andratx. most likely they are staying with danish friends in their house, but the article is not certain on it. they mentioned she had 4 bodyguards, some spanish and some danish, apart from the company of her friend, and that they went shopping around Jaume III avenue, porto pi shopping mall, and went for a walk around paseo del borne and mercado del olivar. in this market, her friend bought at the market at the fishmonger isabel y manolo. apparently, mary has visited the island before in 2003, when frederik took her with him to the sailing cup, and when they went with the spanish royal family aboard the fortuna yatch. they also mentioned that frederik was previously there in 1998 with his ex girlfriend singer maria montell, who he introduced to king juan carlos.

hmm the article also states that Mary preferred to go on vacation in Spain instead of going to the business trip to Malaysia with Frederik has been heavily criticized in Denmark
I dont think it has.
Plus the business trip is also IOC meetings, thus only Frederik went

article about Mary and the kids in Spain.
Kronprinsesse Mary på Mallorca med børnene - Herognu
one extra picture
http://herognu.dk/Upload/her-og-nu/2...ristian_is.jpg

and at least they knew Frederik was in Malaysia. No criticism here.
"Crown Prince Frederik was meanwhile in Malaysia where he attended a meeting of the International Olympic Committee and starred in a couple of Danish business promotion for Arla and Carlsberg."

As far as I know Mary being in Mallorca has hardly been noticed, so she is not being criticized.

It's great to see they can have a short holiday without being followed by the press and are hardly seen.
Christian looks adorable in his outfit, love the hat!

some people wow!
No, we have not seen the kids are in Spain with her, - we have seen one photo of Christian and Isabella eating ice-cream which could have been taken anywhere. It seems fairly clear to me that they are not with her.

Also the Queen has been in Mallorca since last Friday

This article with the pictures, states that Christian and Isabella were in Spain with Mary.

If Mary was in Mallorca with Birgitte Handwerk (which we know she was since they were photographed out together) it's a bit illogical that Christian and Isabella somehow should be somewhere else in the world with Birgitte's daughter. Not to mention the fact that it's clearly stated in the article polyesco posted that Christian and Isabella (and thus, presumably, the twins) were in Mallorca with her

Yes, the (Danish) article states that the children are with her, but it does not prove it. The picture shows Christian, Isabella and possibly one of the Handwerk children, eating ice-cream, nothing more. There have been NO photos of CP Mary WITH her children, so it cannot be concluded that they are with her in Palma. There is nothing" illogical" about it. IMO

Does it really matter? If she had some kid free adult vacation time with kids elsewhere there is absolutely nothing wrong with that on occasion. In fact some Away time is good for both parents and kids.

Why are you so vehemently arguing that they weren't together? I mean, Her&Nu got the photos from a photo agency (Scanpix) that most likely has been able to provide them information about where the pictures were taken – they wouldn't have written that Christian and Isabella were in Mallorca if they weren't and Her&Nu is the kind of tabloid that definitely would have mentioned it if they weren't together

But no, as of right now, there are no pictures of Mary with her children in Mallorca – and thank goodness for that. It must be liberating that they can hold their private summer holiday almost entirely in peace without having to be bothered with photographers all the time. I see absolutely nothing wrong in that

Did you come here for trolling? There are better places to go where people indulge in every possible conspirancy theory about Mary but not on this forum.

Yes it's so nice, isn't it. I'm sure they have enjoyed being able to stroll unnoticed around like any other Danish tourist family.

Christian and Isabella start school on Monday so great for them and the twins to enjoy the last week of their vacation in sunny Mallorca.

Billed Bladet out today has information about Mary and the children in Mallorca as well, but fortunately no pictures (they are good to respects privacy, especially when the children are along)

Yes, as Roskilde mentions. Billed Bladet this week writes about Mary in Mallorca, without showing pictures. That is in accordance with the BB policy about preferably not using paparazzi pics and pics of the DRF that would be illegal had they been taken in Denmark.
Photographing Mary and certainly her children going about their own business, even in a public street, and without them knowing it or having given their consent is a breach of the Danish legislation regarding privacy should the DRF take it to court.

Mary was there with her friend, Birgitte Handwerk and her two daughters Palma and India. Isabella and Christian was there as well.

BB quotes Spanish media and there is no mentioning of the twins.

No, I did not, just. I came here to express my opinion to which I believe I am entitled.

For someone who wanted to avoid the paparazzi, Palma de Mallorca in summer, when the Royal Family are present, seems like a strange choice to me.

At any rate, I believe she is back in Denmark now.

Billed Bladet this week naturally covers the vacation at Gråsten. I'll get back to that tomorrow.
There is also a large interview with the Regent Couple that is worth translating, more on that later as well.

However, there is not much concrete news in BB. Except Mary being quoted for saying: "Here are lots of opportunities for activities" when on the cycle to the nearby riding center.
And there are probably more opportunities even than at Fredensborg perhaps.
They can swim, in the swimming pool or at the sea.
They can go riding.
There are more quiet lanes, where they cycle.
They can pop across the border to Germany.
Go kayaking.
There are several family oriented amusement parks within an hour by car.
The park is large, so plenty of room for children (and dogs) to run around.
Gråsten Manor is large as well with lots of rooms and corridors to explore and hide.
There are interesting machines, like diggers daddy can impress the children with.
Frederik (and Hamish) can cycle into the baker in Gråsten town every morning - and afternoon - and evening - after fresh bread and pastry without causing a stir.

And on that note let us have a look at the all time holiday favorite: fresh bread and pastry.

In the morning the menfolks are obliged to pedal to the local bakers for "rundstykker" and "morgensnegle".
http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/19/2200...dstykker--.jpg
Cut in half and with a thick layer of real butter. http://www.fancybites.dk/wp-content/...-2076x1152.jpg
Still lukewarm from the oven.
Sometimes with cheese or jam. http://www.letlivet.nu/files/manager...g-rugbroed.jpg
You'd be surprised at how your otherwise very calorie-conscious wife can wolf down one bun after the other - as if she was pregnant!
Milk or juice is served alongside the buns.

Naturally no breakfast would be complete without morgensnegle = morning-snails, which is a pastry. There are countless variants.
http://www.bakkegaardensbageri.dk/Cu...1844/3_635.jpg
http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/792/7/2...-wienerbrd.jpg
http://levlykkeligt.dk/files/Snegle.jpg
Usually enjoyed with coffee. And because it's holiday you'll have two snails, right?
(One snail covers one seventh of a well build adult mans daily calorie intake).

After a wholesome lunch you begin to feel peckish in the mid afternoon, so you all stroll to the baker to have a freshly baked white bread, of which there are countless variants as well:
http://www.jannefischer.dk/wp-conten...-br%C3%B8d.jpg
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GVH4MtpjyN...kbr%C3%B8d.jpg
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/MwyMDlh6RE4/maxresdefault.jpg
Still warm from the oven naturally.
You use the rest of the butter from the morning, that almost melt on the bred. Cheese, jam, chocolate, Nutella means that, to your mild surprise, all the bread has vanish before you've finished your third cup of coffee.
It is summer after all, so you spoil yourself with something light, say a "flødeskumskage = whipped-cream-cake".
http://www.madenimitliv.dk/wp-conten...demedaljer.jpg
http://spisestuen.dk/wp-content/uplo...eskrans-29.jpg
Refreshing on a hot day - or otherwise...

After the dinner, you go for a stroll, and the womenfolks "persude" you to go to the baker one more time, while they go home and make some coffee.
What could be better for the evening coffee than a "kringle", right?
Again there are countless variants, easily one for each evening and the pastries in Southern Jutland in particular are very good indeed!
http://www.detsoteliv.no/sites/defau...?itok=_6_0ODES
https://klappeklappekage.files.wordp...8/kringel7.jpg
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2L4YWXPbFd.../doris+087.JPG
https://pantograph0.goldbely.com/upl...fe31406e84.jpg

And the next day, the whole thing starts again, unless of course someone comes visiting or there is something to celebrate. In which case Frederik will mount the iron horse again and embark on his journey to the baker after a layered cake. It is after all summer and there is no reason to make a song and dance act of the whole thing, right? So something simple will suffice. Perhaps with strawberries, that's refreshing.

As we all know, food eaten during a holiday doesn't fatten - until next week.
a little late but your excellent post reminded me of the pictures of Frederik heading from the bakery during their summer holidays

At least Frederik isn't obliged (read: kicked out of bed) to get up on Sundays and venture out to the local bakery after morning bread for your wife.
And when you return, with ice sickles hanging from your nose, you discover that your children have taken up your place in bed, the little rascals.

Frederik no doubt has someone bake or deliver fresh bread during weekends. - Lucky b*st*rd.
