Summary of article in Billed Bladet #6, 2015.
Written by Dorte Quist.

As you M&F attended the fundraiser and sat next to a seventeen year old girl. That girl, Mie Hansen, has given a vivid account of what happened. Mie attends the continuation (boarding) school Grønsund and it wasn't a surprise for her that M&F would sit next to her because three days prior to the show her teacher at the school told her that PET had called and asked who would sit where Mie Hansen would sit and who she was. Being okayed she was asked to keep quiet about it.
Mie Hansen explains: "I was told by my teacher because PET called the school and checked who would be seated next to Mary. I understood that I was apparently okayed. And then I was told that I was not to tell anyone. Not even my parents knew it. That was the hardest thing ever to keep secret. So when Mary sat next to me I told her: My, you (informal you) look great. Then she said you too and put her hand in my lap. Then I was totally wauuuuuuuww. And then I just sat there in that ugly, ugly T-shirt (from the continuation school). I told her that I'd liked to have worn a neat dress, now that I was to meet her, but that I had to wear the school's T-shirt. Then she just smiled and said that I looked good".

During the show the apparently talkative Mie kept Mary entertained: "First I explained her about the gong. She wasn't there when the hosts explained that it was struck when there was a donation of more than 20.000 DKK. Then she asked what classed I take at the continuation school. And then I told her all the things we have done at our continuation school to raise money for the fund raiser event".
(I'll skip the details).
"When the Cavalry (comedians) came on stage Mary asked me whether I like them. And fortunately I said yes, because two minutes later Frederik asked me the same question.
I also talked with Mary about me wishing to have a picture taken with them. And to that she said: Yes, of course. And Frederik also said yes, when I asked him. But all of a sudden they had to leave and - well, that was probably the wildest thing of the whole evening! - when they were going, Mary stops the whole thing and signals me to come to them and when I get over there, she says: I promised you a photo. Then we go down the stairs together and then she grabs Frederik and that's when I'm photographed with them along with my classmate Andreas, who is also standing there. That was so cool"!

- Mie has uploaded the photo taken on her mobile and it's used in the article

Delightful reportage, thanks Muhler.

If one watched the live show one wasn't in doubt that these three enjoyed themselves...

I can add a link to the picture Mie got of her together with her future King and Queen:

Who is the tall blonde woman sitting behind Mary and Frederik? I've seen her at other events. Is she some sort of cultural minister?

Yes, tonight our Crown Prince Couple attend Denmark's Collection 2016 in Tivoli and the show was send live on tv the whole evening.

Frederik and Mary again won hearts when they went to the Call Center (where the ordinar Danes called in) and on live-tv answered some calls from the Danes.
I must had been a once-in-a-live time experience to call in a "Hi, it's Crown Prince Frederik" answered you

A nice article from BB tell how well liked Frederik and Mary are. Even people who are against the royal family likes them:
Kronprinsesse Mary charmerede Cecilie Beck | BILLED-BLADET

During the national fundraising Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik went around in the call center and Frederik won hearts when he, fresh as he is, helped taking the ringing phones and talked with the ordinar Danish who called in. And Mary definitely gave a good impression as well.

One of Denmark's very well known tv-news reporter, Cecilie Beck, who are against the monarchy, told afterwards about meeting Mary:

- "I must say that I was captivated by the Crown Princess! She really has a winning personality, and if I become converted to the monarchy, then it's because of her! She is unique."

- "The Crown Princess asked whether there were many children who called in and she was spot on there, because there is. Many children have worked and done something extra to make money so they could donate. And we talked a lot about that because the Crown Princess also do a lot of charity work, and we talked about how meaningful it is and how happy it makes you to help others."

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #06, 2016.
Written by Trine Larsen.

The annual national fundraiser gets a huge focus, as it is covered by the public service network DR1 - and as such the other medias cover it as well.
Due to the high profiling - and for altruistic reasons too of course... there is no lack of celebs and politicians willing to appear at the show and be phone-operators.
However, this year there has been more criticism than usual of the national fundraiser, the arguments being: Okay, it's fine to support refugees or children in third world countries, but how about a national fundraiser for people in need here in Denmark? Of which there are quite a few, not least in the wake of the financial crisis.
M&F are not blamed for this, rather the organizers behind the event. Also because DR1 is grabbing a very big piece of the money gathered for running the show, despite the fact that DR1 is funded by practically all Danes through a license-fee.

Unsurprisingly those celebs who took part in the event praise it in this article and as such also M&F. But more on what they had to say later.

M&F spend a good deal of the show, watching the entertainment and the appeals for money and also applauded the sums being donated by especially companies. Donations are tax-deductible. (Yes, I'm in my cynical mood tonight. ).
Anyway, at some point M&F strolled around among the phone-operators receiving calls from the public, chatting, hugging, joking and shaking hands. At some point he was standing next to an actress and helped her typing in details from the callers. Then she said to her caller: "I've just got a grand visitor, Crown Prince Frederik. - You'll get him". Frederik took over: "Good evening, you are speaking with Crown Prince Frederik".
The actress later said: "The Crown Prince and I got 1.000 DKK for that call".

Some of the celebs auctioned away items. That included the very respected foreign correspondent, Rasmus Tantholt, who by the way is in the outskirts of Aleppo Syria today. Rasmus Tantholt who is a hardcore monarchist donated a bullet-proof west and a knife.
His wife who works at the same network as him, is on the other hand republican, but after meeting Mary she was willing to consider reconsidering her stand: "If I'm convinced it's definitely because of Crown Princess Mary. She's totally fantastic and (she) has such a likable demeanor/character. She's unique".

Another celeb, Mette Blomsterberg told our reporter: "I must confess that I stole a hug from the Crown Prince. Oh, he's so sweet and when he came to shake hand and say hi, I said: - No, I simply have to have a hug... and I got it".

The singer Hilda Heick, who very much appeals to the grandparent generation - or older, forgor to get up when Mary tapped her on the shoulder: "I became so flabbergasted that I just remained sitting and the thought milled around in my head... oooii, it's Mary, what am I going to say. But Mary handled that herself, because she thank us for spending a night off on helping.
Well, I think she's doing so much, but in particular for children and about bullying, so I thanked her for that. As mormor (maternal grandmother, her daughter is married to the DRF-chef, who has had to resign due to an injury) I'm very delighted that there is focus on bullying, that's an important cause".
