While M&F went to a baptism Saturday, Joachim and Alexandra visited their oldest son at the boarding school of Herlufsholm. This is the first of a number of events in the school year where parents are invited.

The whole thing started with a procession for the high school students. High School in DK lasts three years. The senior students in front and the freshmen, who Nikolai belongs to in the rear.
The rain poured down, but by noon when Nikolai got to meet his parents the weather was fine.
Nikolai got a manly hug from dad, who had brought along bette Henrik and Athena, who really has started to smile! There is a sweet picture of Nikolai hugging his half-sister. Felix was not present.
Nikolai told the wee ones: "There is a bouncy-castle". Bette Henrik was a bit hesitant: "Yeah, if there aren't any big boys...". So Nikolai had to explain that there are indeed many big boys at the school, but that he would look after them.
thanks
So High School in DK last three years. Third year students are called Seniors and first year students freshman, what are the second year students called?
In the U.S. its 4 years (Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors)

Henrik and the bouncy castle, how sweet...something tells me that Athena had no such questions lol

Yes. the most common thing here in DK is ten years at school (sometimes eleven), followed by three years in High School and then it's off to university or another education.

IIRC some 60% follow that way.

I can imagine Athena is used to wrapping older boys (her brothers) around her finger, so they don't scare her.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2015.
Written by Dorte Quist.

On the occasion of Nikolai turning sixteen tomorrow, photographer Steen Brogaard has made a few pics of him. - And let me put it like this: I think especially the teens among you have something to look forward to!
There is a close-up of Nikolai in the article where there is a distinct greenish hue in his eyes. So Athena is not the only child in the DRF who do not have blue eyes.

Anyway, Nikolai's stay at the boarding school Herlufsholm has matured him.
Nikolai started at school at a younger age than average (Felix you may recall waited a year before starting in school) and when he finished 9th grade at Krebs School he would like to move out from home for a while, so he ended up at Herlufsholm. And that is very different from having his own room at Schackenborg, Alexandra's house and now J&M's new home at Klampenborg (*). Becuase at Herlufsholm he sleep in the same room as 27 other students.
Each student do have a room of their own, to be alone of have visitors or to do homework, but it's for sleeping.
Of the 640 students and pupils at Herlufsholm almost 300 sleep there for some 200 days of the year.
With each dormitory there is an apartment, where a teacher live. That teacher is tasked with getting to know the pupils in his/her dormitory very well and that includes personal issues. As such the pupils tend to become very close with their house teacher. On the other hand it means that the house teacher has often been at the school for many years, because it is a special job.
The house teacher has a couple of older students to assist him, prefects. Who are basically there to ensure order and to assist their fellow students.
Tomorrow the other 27 students in his dormitory will circle his bed and sing the birthday song. That is a very treasured tradition at Herlufsholm.

(*) The area of Klampenborg is where one lives if one belongs to the segment of the population, where money is something you just have. You live there if you own a 60 foot yacht called "pocket change". Where your butler naturally drives a Mercedes and where you never open your mouth more than a few millimeters when your speak, for fear of getting a golf ball in your mouth.

Not only Marius is getting handsome, but Nikolai as well. I love his eyes and I think that hairstyle suits him.

I know that maps tells that it only takes 1 hour, but in reality it takes nearer to 1.5 hour than 1 hour

I think Joachim gave it to Christoph Waltz to use it for his Blofeld character

Summary of note in Billed Bladet #46, 2015.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Bette Henrik is now so old that he can go to the cinema alone. Well, almost alone. Okay, without his parents.
He went with Charlotte Sparre who is good friend of the family to see the premiere of a Christmas movie.

He may actually have known several in the cinema, because since this was a premiere, a number of local celebs, along with their children, had been invited as well. And glancing over the names I can tell that several belong to the fringe of J&M's circle of friends.

an short article about the relationship of Nikolai and Felix with their uncle Frederik, not sure how reliable it is
Frederik er drengenes reservefar: Trtøster Nikolai og Felix - Herognu

but with some nice pictures of the soccer match they attended two months ago
http://herognu.dk/upload/fixed/643/4...dag/frede2.jpg
http://herognu.dk/Upload/her-og-nu/2.../frede%203.jpg

"Frederik, who is godfather to Nikolai, has always taken an active part in its oldest nephew's life, but now that Felix has not Martin anymore, he has also taken him under his wing.
- They both know that they can call day and night, and the Crown Prince has also made room in his busy schedule to see them much more often than before, says a source.
- The enhanced relationship with Nikolai and Felix is ​​also good for Prince Christian. Christian looks very up to Nikolai, and Nikolai is very caring towards him, it said."

I can vividly imagine Frederik "consoling" them, so to speak, sometimes it's just easier to confide in someone outside the immediate family and it's a well-known fact that Frederik and Nikolai have always had a special relationship. It's also lovely to see the great relationship between Nikolai and Felix and the four Crown Prince children, it looks like especially Christian and Isabella are very fond to spend time with their older cousins.
