To an extent I'll agree with you. Felix and Nikolai are older, they have simply been around longer and being older, it's more natural to take them along to something. - Also, they get double exposure, since they often accompany Alexandra to an event.
But at least it isn't like in the old days where Joachim and Alexandra almost competed about the most idylic photosessions.
Now that they have both settled in their new lives that doesn't seem to be necessary anymore.

The J&M family get exposure because children sell, if for no other reason.

The current balance is I think fine. Both J&M and M&F have two photosessions a year, summer and winter holidays.
And then inbetween when they are on the job or a photographer catch them on the streets.
I think this is where the difference lie in comparing the DRF to other European RF's. Some other RF's tend to be more closed regarding the children.

I think we will eventually see the same phenomenon in Sweden as here in DK, once Carl Phillip have children. - Right now the Swedish press are going completely gaga about Princess Estelle! Once Carl Phillip has a child or two to show off, that will hopefully lessen the burden and demand on Victoria and Daniel.
I don't count Madeleine because I believe her family will spend most of their time in USA anyway and the exposure will be limited.

Lovely pictures, but now i wonder if Joachim and family will be at the July 26 photo shoot? maybe he cant make it this year and thats why they offer their own photo session?

I would love it if Frederik and Mary did a photo session in their holidays as well, but maybe that is too much?

Not if you ask me.

A say ten minutes photo session at Tisvilde, would in my mind be preferable to the photographers standing 100 meters away with telelenses. - Because we do want the pics, eh?

Nothing is happening in July anyway, so a session with J&M, another with M&F and the big show at Gråsten would cover three otherwise dull weeks - and everybody is happy. - And it would be easier for the magazines not to give in to the temptation to publish semi-paparazzi photos.

I second this idea
But Im sure the paps and magazines would still prefer a Mary in a bathing suit. Not that i mind the shirtless pics of Frederik with his shark shorts

But anyway, love the pic of the three boys together.

Yes, but taking pictures of Mary in a bathing suit, even on a public beach, without her consent, is a borderline breach of the Danish legislation regarding privacy. - The magazines have lost lawsuits on that issue before.

Even if you are celebrity, even if it's on a public beach, even if there are loads of people around you, you are, in the eyes of the courts, entitled to a degree of privacy and to be protected from being spied on.
The magazine Se & Hør lost a case last year based on exactly that. Can't remember off hand who she was, I believe it was TV host.

If not mistaken, Joachim and Marie every summer have a small picture session and a short interview while on holiday. Two years ago (if I remember correct) there was pictures of them walking around the town and they were interviewed.

Lovely photos. Little Athena is a charmer, so is her brother Henrik. What a shame Joachim smokes near his children!

Summary of a number of articles in Billed Bladet #29, 2013.
Written by Trine Larsen.

BB's coverage of the photoshoot is, to put it mildly, massive!

It's interesting for two reasons. Firstly because we get a glimpse at what goe on at such a photoshoot and secondly because of the news we get about the children. And this time it's mainly Joachim who is doing the talking.

The photoshoot took place at 14th July and the press had gathered at the souvenir shop next to the chateau. Here Joachim first came down alone and greeted the press: "Good day (formal greeting) and welcome to Cahor and the good weather". After having given a few surprised Danish tourists permission to also take pictures, he explains that the family will be slightly delayed: "That's how it is with children, it's not easy to plan, but we are ready in a moment".

Joachim returns to the chateau and a few minutes later that gate to the garden open and out walks Nikolai, only to have the gate slammed shut behind him - so he can face the press alone. He laughs and so does Joachim: "Gotcha, eh"?
But the rest of the family joins him. Athena is in charge of mother's lipgloss, but decides she would rather stand, somewhat precarious, behind her older brother, Henrik.
Finally, with considerable difficulty the whole family face the photographers - except for Apple, the white Canis Oddicus, which is standing with it's behind facing the press. Joachim turns the creature around. But now bette Henrik decides he would rather stand like his brothers. - Okay.
But Henrik is shy, so he is encouraged by our Marie: "Smile...Henrik, won't you smile"? And he sort of smiles, leading the family to crack up.

After reminding a still very shy bette Henrik that he must remember to shake hands with the press like his brothers, the family retreats into the garden, where there is more shade, for more pics. And here the otherwise confident Athena become shy from all the attention and seek refuge in mothers arms. She grabs mother's sunglasses. Cool!

Bette Henrik is still very shy, until he is encouraged to get into the golfcar the family use at the estate with his brothers. A transformed boy! Big smiles and not the least bit shy anymore.

Athena is of course getting a lot of attention. Marie tells us: "She's such a lovely girl and very, very easy and happy. She smiles almost all the time and when she isn't doing it right now, it's because there are som new people she has to size up first but she's never afraid of strangers. She's actually very social.
Yes, she's very lovely, you want to kiss her and I do that all day long.
Yes, she began to walk a couple of months ago. She is still holding on to things but she can stand and walk on her own, she just doesn't know it yet. So often she would like a hand for support, but she can easily cope on her own.
But she certainly has a temper, make no mistake of that. And she has learned to say no".

Athena's eyes are greenish, just like her brother Henrik's, observes our reporter

Joachim is asked whether there is a difference in temperament between Athena and the boys. Joachim: "Yes! She's so much calmer. She's certainly a girl, so it's no like we get more peace because of that, but in her way she's certainly calmer. And yet, balls and cars are the thing for her right now".

So Athena has been smitten?
J: (Laughing) "Yes, it's probably more because she sees the toys around her at home which her brothers use and grabs it. She'll end up playing with doll, no doubt about that but for now she's mostly influenced by Henrik, who inherited it from the other two".

But now that she has learned to walk, tranquillity is over?
J: "You got it. So far she hasn't been so mobile and as such she has been an easy little thing, but now we'll see, when she's learning to stand on her own two legs and what that brings... but there is spunk in her, that's for sure".

It's hot at Chateau Cayx! 37 degrees C (Bodytemperature, for those who are not well versed in using Celcius). The family spend most of the time in or around the swimming pool. Mostly the boys and with a lot of noise and wild activity! Bette Henrik is now a pretty good swimmer - with wings.
Athena, contends herself with watching the boys in safety as her mother. Marie explains: "Oh I have been (a waterhound). But now there no longer is room enough in the pool; that's for the boys.
No, they make a lot of noise and splash quite a lot but that's just lovely. That's how it is with boys. And Athena thinks it's really funny, so she's just sitting and watching the rest".

Joachim adds that the boys get along fine - but ear protection would sometimes come in handy. And they have no plans about having more children.
Felix will celebrate his 11th birthday here at Cayx and asking Felix how he would like to celebrate his birthday, Felix repsonds: "I don't know yet. I really haven't got any wishes...well, perhaps driving a gocart. That could be fun! Dad... gocart"!

But there is lot of French relatives around, so they will be invited for the B-day.

As you know Felix cut himself while in Turkey with Alexandra and needed stitches to his calf. Joachim: "Fortunately it isn't so bad. We can charaterise it as a summer-injury. It's a scratch...Well, perhaps a little more than a scratch, but that's what happens. It's happened to all of us and it won't be the last time. He was a trip by the hospital down there to be checked but apart from that he's fine. (That's confirmed by Felix nearby).
Yes, and it probably won't be the last time he or others here get injured. You just know that when you've got sons. And I remember it from myself. As long as you don't suffer permanent after effects from it, or fracture someting or get more seriously injured, it's manageble".

But Joachim and Marie also find time for themselves. Apart from visiting family in southern France, or having a BBQ on the terrace/patio (*). They have something to help with the cooking, because Joachim admits to be helpless in a kitchen, but he enjoyes shopping for the groceries. Which they do in the town of Cahors nearby.
When speaking together: "Yes, Prince Henrik of course speaks French, but he prefers Danish, funnily enough", laughs Marie.

Marie and Joachim speak a mix of French and Danish between themselves. Joachim: "We speak a mix of it all. We don't distinguish between the languages, so it's mixed up naturally and we really don't think about it. But I guess we mostly speak French together".
Felix and Nikolai understand a good deal of French but they don't master it yet. They are however fluent in English. Nikolai is learning French at school but it ain't easy! Nikolai: "I try, but I think it's really difficult".

There are advantages in having two older children to lok after and wear out their younger siblings, explains Joachim. The two oldest are granted more responsibillity, also in looking after the younger. So he and Marie can get some relaxation time, especially in the evening when the two youngest chash in bed.

(*) Bear with us Danes when we write terrace when we mean patio, because patio = terrasse in Danish.

I enjoyed looking at the photos, thank you all for posting. Athena and little Henrik are so cute and I think Nikolai and Felix will be handsome when they're older. My favourite photos are the ones of Athena trying on Marie's sunglasses, very cute!

nice to see them relaxed and that they feel able to do things just like anyone else, like siting in a bench and soaking the sun... :)
