Yesterday , Frederik attended a concert at Tivoli of one of his favorite bands. Frederik had asked to meet the band and they posted a picture on instagram.
According to the article Mary's brother John Stuart was with Frederik to the concert .

Kronprinsen hemmeligt til Dizzy-koncert i Tivoli

the Donaldsons have always been discreet but it's nice to read that Mary's brother is in town.

Marys brother, John Donaldson, is in Denmark and enjoying some family time with his little sister, Frederik and children. (..)

Perhaps many from the Donaldson family are in town as Mary's father could celebrate his 75 years birthday some days ago? Maybe they all have celebrated home at Mary and Frederik and children

The other very well-known forum that follows Mary and Frederik was named - and quoted - in a double-page feature about the CP Couple in one of this week's Australian magazines.


And it was a well-balanced article about Frederik's "restlessness" as his Royal duties get more demanding - not an article about negative internet coverage of them.


I wonder if TRFs will get the same spotlight at some point?

Where does the time go? ....

Today, it's exactly 13 years ago that Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik presented his love and fiancée, Mary Donaldson, for all of us.

And in the next month - 14th November - can the Crown Prince couple celebrating their copper wedding.

Several Danish media celebrates the day with lovely galleries, greetings and pictures from the couple's engagement - on the October 8, 2003:

Indeed it is.

I'll deal with the US visit later. Busy weekend!

Don't know how it is in your countries, but here in DK the copper-anniversary, i.e. 12½ years of marriage is usually celebrated with a party for family and friends.
The next big party being the silver anniversary and then the golden anniversary.

A nice little tradition is that there mostly is someone playing at the party and at regular intervals the bridal waltz is played and that's a signal for the happy to stand up and kiss to the general cheer.
And of course the bridal waltz is danced and as tradition dictates while the family slowly close in on the happy couple until they can't move anymore.
Here at a golden anniversary:


Another must, at least at silver and golden anniversaries, is that family and friends gather outside the home of the happy couple and wake them with song and if possible music. The couple appearing and night gowns, pretending they haven't been awake since dawn...
http://vibekestendorf.dk/wp-content/.../IMG_6057b.jpg
Then the guests are invited in for morning buns and cake.
http://www.ruths-hotel.dk/typo3temp/pics/a2493d77a7.jpg
A, more or less, homemade portal is inevitably placed over the front door, naming the happy couple and how many years they have been married.

http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/445/4/2200x/4445961-.jpg
Some more elaborate than others...
http://www.festen.dk/images/content/...g0805_3e3e.jpg


But at copper anniversaries the portal is often only half, as you can see here:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mtzX5SWPXy...2012+(184).JPG

It's the same thing at the silver anniversary - perhaps with a little fewer kisses.
But I've rarely been to a silver anniversary where this sung hasn't been played or song: Sølvstænk i dit gyldne hår - Strands of silver in your golden hair.



And just as often at golden anniversaries: Tak er kun et fattigt ord - Thanks is but a poor word. - Which is actually a beautiful song about a man expressing his love and gratitude for his wife over a long marriage.

Indeed, thanks is but a poor word to express my delight in this post about Danish nuptial nuances! I shall look forward to the various expressions of the Crown Prince Couple's copper celebrations and wish you all a happy weekend. For us in Canada it is Thanksgiving Monday and I do give thanks for the fun I have with this forum!

Thanks Muhler, interesting to read! In Germay, we do have a list naming all wedding day anniversaries and even in-between days (like 12 1/2), but we only really celebrate 25 and 50 (for younger couples, 10 years would be special). So people may know about 12 1/2 years (its called parsley wedding, copper is 7 years) but they do not celebrate it.

I remember well in the generation of my grandparents and maybe parents friends and family coming over and putting up a portal but this is only in more rural areas, not in the cities. I remember my grandmother being horrified since their golden anniversary got some coverage in the local newspaper and she hated the attention.

My pleasure, ladies.

And funny how things have changed in Germany. And so many names for anniversaries!

I'm pretty busy, so I'll deal with the USA visit tomorrow, in the meantime for your viewing pleasure, here is BB this week: https://app.box.com/s/exmn8adggw4sefp8fkoy4l3qg79006lp

Well, here they still (privately) mark the anniversary by giving each other an appropriate gift. But I haver to admit, the idea of marking twelve and a half, twenty-fifth and fiftieth anniversaries in such a way as the Danes do is a lovely tradition.

Just think how so many younger people are so wrapped up in celebrity marriages that don't seem to last very long would find themselves easily reminded that this is the real world where such anniversaries are to be celebrated and enjoyed.

I have to admit that the 12½ year anniversary is my favourite because it speaks to an expectation of 25 years rather than celebrates what is past like the 1st, 10th, etc.

Crown Prince Frederik had an accident yesterday, October 13. According to a statement of the Palace he suffered from a "fracture of the cervical spine" while using a trampoline. "The fracture is treated with a neck brase" that he is supposed to wear for around 12 weeks, although he won't attend a reception today, it is expected that the injury won't affect any future engagements:

Thanks, Iceflower.

And a follow up: Kronprins Frederik har fået brud på halsrygsøjlen: Prins Christian så sin far styrte på trampolinen

Frederik actually injured himself in front of Christian, but the situation was undramatic and taken care of professionally.

I believe Christian, who is just as big a sports-fan as his dad, attends calisthenics, so perhaps Frederik was showing of? Which is something dads tend to do...

I wish a speedy recovery to our Frederik too

It happened yesterday afternoon as he was to the gym with Prince Christian. They are dangerous those trampolines.... There is thousands of accidents each year.

But good it wasn't worse. At present it is not expected that the accident has any implications on the Crown Prince's other official activities

A little sad Frederik had to rest today during today's reception at Christiansborg. I bet Frederik had looked forward to that one.

***

I wonder if we will see Frederik, Mary and the children drive to Trend now in the family's Autumn holiday after the accident?
The family has one week's vacation starting from today. We will to see... otherwise it's must be a cozy week chilling out on the couch to Netflix. A bit sad is it, right up to the family's holiday.

You can sure tell this is Friday before the Autumn holiday!

2009 - Frederik - Injured his leg in a skiing accident.
2008 - Benedikte - Injured in a skiing accident.
2001 - QMII - Broken ribs.
1988 - Joachim and Frederik - Car accident. Frederik had a broken collar-bone. But this one was a close call! The car ended up in a river.
