On Tuesday, Prince Joachim made his way past Fredensborg Store Kro when he visited Fredensborg Rotary Club. In front of a lot of attendants he told about his working life in the Armed Forces.

There is of course a perfectly rational explanation.

No army officer would ever, as never ever, bury his hands in his pockets.
Nor would a gentleman ever be seen in public with his hands in his pocket - it's... impossible.
As we all know Joachim is an army officer and a perfect gentleman.

This is really the result of a collaboration between our Marie and Frederik.
The Rotary Club took contact to Marie when they learned that she and Joachim were to live in France for a while. Members of the Rotary Club expressed consternation and deep distress that Joachim for the next year or so would not have time to visit the club and by his mere presence set a standard for correct attire and behavior thus ensuring the club maintained its aloof standard. So they asked Marie to help, perhaps a portrait of Joachim, would comfort the other members?

Marie did some thinking and decided to ask her brother in law, Frederik. He's portrayed all the time, so he must know an artist who could portray Joachim.
Indeed he did.
Frederik brought along some photos of Joachim in his dress uniform. The artist then asked Frederik: "How should he pose?" Frederik replied: Why, just standing there looking natural, will do. - Like this."
Frederik then demonstrated to the artist how he looks when he is natural - with both hand glued to his pockets...
No problem, so the artist went to work.

And this wax-figure of Joachim was the result.
You have to admit it's very life-like! If it wasn't for the hands in the pockets you would be forgiven for thinking this really is Joachim!

In the second photo we see the real breathing Joachim. Without his hands in his pockets.

Thanks Polyesco & Eya.

The uniforms worn by the custodians in the background are of course of interest to me, being a uniform nerd.
They are copies of Danish army uniforms anno 1735. - Down to the waistcoat.
To be specific they officers uniforms. (Something the BB reporter can be excused for not knowing.)

And they reflect the current civilian fashion trend at the time. I.e. very long coats buttoned all the way down with a multitude of buttons. Being able to afford and wear a coat with many (preferably) silver-buttons was of course a status symbol.
At the same time female jackets also contained as many buttons as possible, but their tended to end at the waist, where the skirt began.

The intricately embroidered waist coast was just as much a status symbol as the jacket! The more intricate, the more expensive and the more prestige.
And if you think the hippies of 68 wore vivid colorful patterns not least with flowers on their clothes and waist coats - I can assure you that they wouldn't have impressed a well attired gentleman from the mid 1700's!
As you can tell from this photo: https://app.box.com/s/pxb7de2c0ikwou2j7uhj
I have often believed PH lived in the wrong century. Fashion-wise he would have felt right at home anno 1750.

Apart from the jacket and waistcoat, notice the huge scarves. Lace-shirts and lace-scarves were high-fashion in the 1700's and military fashion of course reflected that.

It's a pity the custodians don't wear tricorn hats, they would have begun to "grow" in size in 1735! Reaching their peak, size-wise by circa 1760. Just as female wigs reached a climax around that time as well.

- This is really nerd-stuff and I feel I'm getting carried away, so I'd better stop.

Joachim appeared unannounced as newsreader on regional station under P4 - a public service radio station.
https://www.dr.dk/radio/p4sjaelland/...-05-02-15-30-8
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...nyhedsoplaeser

After the short news he seemingly took part in a radio program. the contens of that are not known to me.
This happened today Thursday.

- With a minimum of training Joachim could be a fine newsreader IMO. - He just needs to speak a tad slower.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2019.
Written by Trine Larsen.

As you know Joachim is heavily involved in the making of a TV series about the history of Denmark and what has made the Danes who we are. I.e. our national character.

This is a project he thoroughly enjoys!
"We have actually been at it one week every month since September and now we are nearly finished, so I dare tell myself that I have grown with the task."

In the beginning a take had to be done twenty times, but now the one take our reporter saw only needed to be done three times.
Joachim explains:
"But now the team know each other and know exactly what we are aiming at.
No, it wasn't hard to persuade me, because this is something I'm really burning for. History and telling it that interest me.
Without revealing too much we will in the shows look closer at who we Danes are, how power, religion, low borders, knowledge, symbols have rounded us and turned us into who we are today.
All of that based in something from everyday life that we normally take for granted, but certainly isn't because there is a past behind it. Nothing comes from nothing and that's what we are getting into".

On this day Joachim went to an ice-hockey match to record a few minutes of the spectators singing the national anthem.
"I admit it can seem weird to go to Aalborg to record a few minutes of the national anthem. We could have gone to a handball or football match, but that would have been too obvious."

Apart from that Joachim likes Ice-hockey.

About making the series:
"... And it's a hoot to make TV in this way and professionally totally fantastic. It's actually something I have been dreaming about for a while. Everybody has something they dabble with and burn for and now it happens. And I must admit it really has bloodied my teeth. (Developed a taste for it.)
It's telling history in an interesting and different way. It should hopefully appeal to both young and elderly and put things in place."

Joachim's passion for history is something he shares with his mother (not that Frederik does not have an extensive knowledge of history, he does!):
"I have always been interested in history, but it's not least the telling of history that interest me. The thing with there being in connection between things. That you in order to understand the present needs to undedrstand the past.
The word history alone can make most fall asleep but we try and avoid it becoming too dusty. We will hopefully make it in a way so that you discover things from your own luggage which are connected to history. A jig-saw of life... so that you suddenly as a viewer discover that everything comes from something.
But now I need to work - the crew is waiting."
