Everyone and everybody have voiced their opinion. Some saying that it was a planned PR stunt by Frederik (nonsense IMO). A few saying that it was perhaps a little over the top to appear on stage (merry or not) like an ordinary celeb. Few have any problems as such with it, because that's basically just Frederik being Frederik. i.e. folksy with the people. - And as one commentator points out; He has Mary as a contrast. She is very regal and maintains, so to speak the, not aloofness but dignity of the DRF, so that Frederik can get away with something like this and even be cheered for it.

Practically all are in agreement that this is something Frederik can do this while he is still a Crown Prince. And most are also in agreement that this will not damage Frederik's popularity, on the contrary in fact. Perhaps especially among the under 35ish. - But being ancient myself I don't feel I can comment on that. That I'll leave to those here on TRF in that age-range.

The prevailing consensus among the comments I have glanced on Instagram and so on, have been a mix of chuckles and bless him to "he will be the best king ever!" Very few have been negative.

It's most interesting in fact! And I doubt Frederik would have gotten away with prior to Mary. And had it been back in the 90's people would IMO again start talking about Joachim perhaps being better suited as king.
But Frederik has earned a lot of personal credits, especially in the past ten years.
I also think it’s worked very much in his favour that he’s been open with the Danes about who he is as a person, not just who he is as a royal. He’s given several lengthy interviews, many shorter ones, and he speaks relatively frequently and informally with reporters and regular people about a wide ranging set of topics, including various struggles he’s had and what he sees as his own weaknesses. So people can see he’s a multifaceted man with many good qualities but that he’s also not trying to pass himself off as perfect. There’s nowhere to go but down with perfection.

Frederik continued mingling backstage with the various bands on Friday as well: https://www.bt.dk/royale/kronprinsen...med-succesband

This is basically mainly about the sailing championships in Aarhus, but while there the BT journalist couldn't help ask into Frederik's stage appearance at the festival Thursday.
He declined to answer in a friendly, polite, quiet but no nonsense way, as is evident from the video.
He answered:
"I'd rather tell about how it is to be here (in Aarhus). Because this is where we are now. It's one of the biggest championships we have ever had in Denmark. A world championships for the Olympic class. And that's what we are here for now. So ask about that, or we walk (away)."

Jeg vil hellere fortælle, hvordan det er at være her. For det er her, vi er nu. Det er et af de største stævner, vi nogensinde har afholdt i Danmark. Et VM for OL-klassen. Og det er det, vi er for nu. Så spørg om det, ellers går vi,«

The sentence in bold is at 0:10-0:14 in the video.

I think this should wrap up Frederik's appearance on stage.

A BT article about the event-organizers not knowing he would go on stage.
What's interesting however is the poll.
People are asked whether it was cool (fedt) he went on stage or whether it was embarrassing (pinligt).
You look at the figures yourself.

BT is a tabloid that is read by a fairly broad segment of the population, so I'll say the poll is a reasonable indication.
