It's also good to see the family spending time in different parts of Denmark, as I think it's important for the children, especially Christian, to have first hand knowledge of as much of Denmark as possible. Good move on Mary and Frederik's part, IMO, as well as being a genuinely nice family vacation.

As I posted yesterday, this can't be all nice family vacation if Frederik's secretary and their chief of court (and possibly others) are on the cruise with them. I think this cruise is partly work partly holiday, perhaps because the kids are on their last week of summer holiday before school starts.

I'm sure it is partly work. With Frederik and Mary's increased prominence over the past few years I'd be surprised if they're ever truly "off" for any extended period of time. But it can still be a nice family vacation in the sense that they're all getting out and doing things together, and the kids are learning about their country and having fun at the same time.

I love that they combined the tradition (Grasten), the overseas luxury (Greece) and the home country small towns in their vacation. Seems like fun with enough exposure to keep us watchers happy.

I only hope we had gotten more and better photos of them in Grasten. It had to rain that day And I like the old photoshoots within the beautiful gardens.

I so agree with you on this vacation of theirs, what a fabulous learning experience for the children. Such a variety of different things to do and in different places all the time. The best part IMO is the children on the small towns around Denmark trip for they will learn and see the people and how they live and all the ways of life, this will make them more aware to their country then just in reading books and talking to teachers but to actually be there is the real way to learn.

I really love the way Frederik and Mary are raising the children, they are brought up with love and encouragement to be themselves while at the time to learn and hold onto the traditions of the royal family. What a really wonderful family they seem to be.......Denmark is extremely lucky to have Frederik and Mary as the next couple to take over someday.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #32, 2017.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

The CP family boarded Danneborg on Monday and sailed south towards Møns Klint (white chalk cliff). Here they visited the Geo Center, Frederik visited earlier this year. They got a tour of the center, including having a look at one of the dinosaurs that lived in what became Denmark. They were shown fossils and at the base of the cliff the family went fossil-hunting.
The manager of the center, Nils Natrop, explains: "We were only told about the CP-couple and the children's visit three days before the arrived. It was a big experience to be visited by them. It was a good day and the mood was very relaxed.
The children were happy and darted around. They were very curious and looked for fossils. They found among other things urchin-fossils. The fossil-hunt was, even if the children had hoped to find a dinosaur tooth (a tooth is one of the prime exhibits at the center). That wasn't to be this time.
They behaved completely in the same way as other families who come here. They had a cozy time and were among other places a trip down to the beach and then they also walked the 497 steps to the top of the cliff. The kids darted ahead.
Later down on the beach they had to remove their shoes and walk through seaweed and chalk.
Inside the center the children enjoyed our virtual reality which conveyed to them the sense of being a peregrine falcon and I think they broke the schedule a bit, because they had so much and didn't want to go home".

Today Crown Princess Mary together with Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine visited The Old Town of Aarhus.
Later, the Crown Prince family came on board one of the world's tallest wooden ships when the trip went to Frigate Jutland in Ebeltoft. Since the frigate was launched in 1860, it has served as both a war and barracks ship and is today a museum.

Thank you, Eya.

The children are really getting the historical tour this summer!

The Old Town in Aarhus, which can only be recommended, consists of houses that have been moved from all over DK, and is now a little affluent merchant town anno 1800-something.
The steam-screw frigate Jylland is also well worth a visit! She actually doubled as a royal flagship, and she saw action and distinguished herself during the Schleswigan Wars.
Hyper modern at the time, she a unique hybrid between a regular sail-ship of the line and an engine driven cruiser.

PH is BTW a very active patron of the frigate Jylland.

I love these open air types of museums that are typically staffed with docents demonstrating the types of occupations and crafts that would have been performed by everyday folk living in that era.

this has been a great little family unofficial summer cruise. And how nice for them to share some pics. They are learning and having fun!

While Frederik was at an official event they took a tour of Den Gamle By- "National open-air museum of urban history and culture in Denmark through three decades. The museum consists of more than 75 historic houses relocated from all over Denmark. Besides the historic houses and the appartments in the 1974 section, there are more than 34 workshops and shops as well as a pharmacy, a school, a post office, a telephone exchange, a jazzbar and much more"

later with Frederik, visit to Fregatten Jyllands
"
The family had an insight into life on board, heard about the battle of heligoland in 1864 and visited the royal salons. Here, the young princes and princesses were able to compare the circumstances of the time for their great-Great-Great-Grandfather Christian D. IX, with today's relationship on the dannebrog.
In conclusion, they felt the rush of 1864 when the crown prince fired one of fregattens's old guns."

Thanks, Polyesco.

Yes, these sorts of museums are great. It's a bit... thought provoking... that my childhood in the 70's is now that far back it's fit for a museum.

Look! An analog telephone! And a typewriter, without a monitor or a saving function!?! - It's absolutely medieval!

Isabella looks like she might be as tall as Christian.

I used to work in one of those 'living museums' in high school as a summer job. We had costumes a lot like the lady next to Josephine and the chicken! I learned to build a fire, braid a rug, sew, make a very fancy seven layer trifle and and build and fly a kite. Thankfully we didn't have any farm animals.

I got hysterical reading yr comment......how old are you......, now take me, when growing up there was NO TV.......do not think it was invented yet either......I am almost as old as the pyramids and that is very old in the body yet not in the mind for it will never grow old........ and typewriters, did not know what they were all through the school years growing up ........new inventions just today still amaze me at times.

I think that Frederik and Mary are doing a fabulous job of how they are raising their children to understand their roles in life and their heritage. You could not ask for better parents then these 2 parents anywhere.

I hope that they do this again in going around Denmark next year to show the children other places that they can see that are in the history books of their schools for putting face to places and then reading about them makes it more real in a sense. What a great learning experience for all of them and so educational in the long run for they will remember this all their lives and it may in some way even effect what they would like to do in the future. Maybe other royal parents can take this and do the same for their children.....

What gorgeous family pictures! You really can see the love and bond between the kids. They look "as thick as thieves". I hope throughout their lives they always remain that way��

You know what I see in these pictures about Mary, what a very happy lady she is, this woman is filled with love for her family, it shows in her smile and her eyes.....she is just beaming in these pictures. Makes me almost believe in fairy tales for that is what she is living today. And beside the cutest children ever she has a gorgeous husband who really rocks. Isn't Denmark voted the *happiest* country in the world...must be true with those smiles all the way around.

Yes, I reckon that means the tour has ended now and the family is back at home. It looked as if they enjoyed their trip; there were lots of wonderful photos and I'm sure the children learnt a lot about Denmark whilst they were travelling!
