Trivia based on an article in Billed Bladet #30, 2015.
Written by the Ulrik Ulriksen.

Actually I'm not sure the venerable Ulrik Ulriksen was actually there, it seems more based on what the BB photographer told him.

There were some 300 riders in the procession towards Gråsten Manor, from various ring-rider association. On top of that there were more than 100 local children on decorated bicycles and three marching bands. The whole show lasted half an hour.

The twins were initially a little hesitant when a rider came close to deliver a bouquet.
The riding center located at the stables of the manor are I believe rented by a local riding organization and it was while visiting the center Josephine fell and broke her arm. And it is around here M&F's horses stand while at Gråsten. Isabella appears to have gotten to know several of the local girls, because she knew some of the girls who came with flowers by name. So presumably she has been doing some hanging around at the center.

Anyway, Josephine in particular quickly realized there was no danger from the riders and elbowed her way to the front and happily accepted the flowers the nice people gave her. That is, her family also got flowers, and at some point Josephine voiced her protests. It really is unfair that she only received say 80 % of the bouquets! So mom and dad had to explain to her that she should have a little patience she would get more flowers. - Yeah, okay. - "Now, I'd like some flowers too". Mary: "You will have more flowers".
When the largest of the marching band came, an all girl band BTW, Josephine started to march on the place and swing her arms.

However, one of the annoying thing about being a kidsister is that you have older siblings. Especially if they are in the shape of on older brother who likes to tease you be holding on to the bouquet you are showing him. But Josephine seems to be used to Christian and his antics because she hardly looked annoyed and mother didn't even have to intervene.

Vincent appreciated the flowers, he managed to get too, but he is a boy, and he was standing on the far side from the photographers and he is a less shall we say elbowing person than his twin sister, so he didn't get as much attention...

When the whole thing ended, the family strolled back to the manor. Mary and Christian with their arms around each other, and Bella and Frederik close together. - A typical dad's little girl and mother's little boy.

But M&F and the children have also have been around while in Southern Jutland. We already know they visited the redoubts around Dybbøl.
But they also visited Legoland and here they were photographed by a Trine Juul Jensen who appears to have sold the pics to BB. Trine Juul Jensen says: "My daughters still talk about how fatastic it was that the Crown Princely Couple were in Legoland on exactly the same day as us".
Actually M&F were there, almost unnoticed, with Ellen Hillingsøe, her husband Christoffer Carstenskiold and their two children. - But they are not shown in the article, perhaps because the picture of M&F strictly speaking is a breach of the Danish laws of privacy. (*)
M&F and family also went to science center Universe that belongs to the Danfoss company. But that is more about how things work - so it's a place you can easily persuade uncles and older brothers to come along to.

If you think you can handle more of M&F and their children, you'll find some here in this folder: https://app.box.com/s/k2mgo90ivsvriafy8646gevnafhw8m4d

(*) The Danish laws on privacy are very strict.
For example you are not allowed to take a picture of me and my family in say Legoland without my consent, if the picture is directly focused on us. That is defined on how much space my family take up in a photo depending on an X number of %.
You are however free to photograph my family and me if it's a larger scene, where we just happens to be a small part of it. Say walking on a lane along with a hundred other guests.
But if you crop the photo only to show my family and then publish it without my consent you are in breach of the law.
In this case I imagine BB called the court and asked whether it was OK to publish the photo by Trine Juul Jensen. Because BB otherwise never use such private photos.

It looks like Christian is going to tower over both his parents before long. Not surprising when you consider the height on both sides of his family.

Thanks Muhler

Yes, F&M and children have could keep their holiday's excursions private and without photographers. Thankfully. When the Crown Prince Family Tuesday the 14th July were on a nice family excursion to the Danfoss Universe a local photographer from Gråsten town spotted them, though. On a lovely and warm summer day Frederik and Mary and their children were seen strolling around in the park with a handcart and packed lunches while trying all the fun activities.

https://scontent-ams3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...fc&oe=565118D4

They were in the company of one of Mary's oldest friends from Australia, Hamish Campbell and his wife and their two sons in the same age as F&M's children. (They have very likely stayed on Gråsten for a week or more) Great Mary still so often see her friends from Australia. Also F&M's close friends Peter and Caroline Heering and their two girls, Emilie and Rose (going in schoolclass with Christian and Bella) were along on the excursion.
https://scontent-ams3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...fb&oe=5615441E

Vincent had a blast trying all the fun things, but it was also lovely to relax and cuddle on the mother's back:

Josephine had just two days before broke her arm so older brother Christian took good care of little sister

Lovely pictures. Thanks for posting. It's great to see the CP-family having family time. Although I like seeing it, I'm glad there is the option for the RF to have privacy when having family time.

A delightful BB video of Josephine in particular in front of Gråsten Manor.

Heartwarming to see Josephine embrace Christian. I guess that even though he does tease from time to time, he isn't that bad.

This is from today - this morning - all cycling back home after riding lessons at Gråsten Riding School. How happy I am to see Josephine is along and doesn't at all seems to has been scared of horses after her fall. Great. She's a cool little lady.

Poor Josephine, I see in the photo of her in the dress with tied straps that she has some bad bruises on her arm near where the cast starts

I looks like Countess Ingrid is there with them. As a granddaughter of Princess Benedikte she probably got infected with the horse-bug as well

It's my feeling that Frederik, Mary and all four children cycles to the Gråsten Riding School every day while they're in Gråsten. A horse happy family. I'm very happy to see Josephine is along. She is obviously not scared by horse after her fall. Great.

We often see Vincent and Josephine in their older siblings former clothes.
Another example from this summer.

Thank you for the lovely pictures, Roskilde. All the children appear very interested in being outside, and staying active. Josephine is a little trooper, not letting a broken arm stop her.

Does anyone know why Ziggy was not in the summer photo shoot? I've become so accustomed to seeing him with the family.

Ziggy, who BTW is a very mature lady, was very much present at Gråsten.

I too wondered why we didn't see her during the official photo shoot. But perhaps she was tied somewhere due to the dachshunds and Ziggy not being, shall we say, in agreement about who is in charge?

I think she is there but perhaps Ziggy the Border Collie, the herding dog, is keeping and eye on her "flock of sheep" from a distance

This photo is taken in connection with the Gråsten photo session in 2012

I think you are right, Polyesco.

And I too like to see M&F with children being allowed to be an ordinary family.

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.
