Frederik is on the cover of Her og Nu along with Joachim, and there is article along with it.

Quote:

DERFOR SES DE ALDRIG

Sidste nyt om Frederik og Joachims svære forhold. Tidligere tiders venskab mellem kronprins Frederik og prins Joachim er erstattet af sporadisk og kølig kontakt.
According to the journalist, they have a sporadic, cold/chilly, distant relationship, and apparently they don't have much contact. Or something along those lines.

Click here to view.

Finally, this magazine ran a story regarding Mary and Alexandra. According to the writer, they don't get along because Alexandra flirted with Frederik. Oh brother...

Ah, the journalists must be getting bored. I also love the photoshopped cover from Her og Nu. They always look so classy.

Is it just me or do Joachim and Frederik not look alike at all?

I think that Frederik looks alot like his grandfarther King Frederik 9. and Joachim looks alot like Queen Margrethe both in the way they act when they are in puplic.

Fashionista100 03-06-2008 08:52 PM

I agree with HM Margrethe. Joachim is the spitting image of his mother. Fred has a lot of his Dad in him as well as King Frederick too. But true they don't look alike at all.

On an off note. One of my childhood friends was adopted. Both she and her older brother were. They looked just like their adoptive mom and Dad. The adoptive parents finally had her little brother who was biological. He looked nothing like the parents or any member of the family! They were all Italian looking brunettes. He was a pale redhead! Genes are funny sometimes!

Mary with child wins Bald Archy prize

A PAINTING of a breastfeeding Crown Princess Mary with thunder thighs and a near-naked Crown Prince Frederik with his hand on his "wedding tackle" has won the satirical Bald Archy portrait prize.

The short odds were on a painting of Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard or Peter Garrett - there were about half a dozen of each - but James Brennan's The Official Portrait of the Danish Royal Family took out the top honours in the Archibald spoof

Check out the painting, it's...different, but nice.

What will they think of next???

biboquinhas 03-10-2008 05:46 AM

Gosh this is a terrible paintting!!!!

Madame Royale 03-10-2008 06:11 AM

HAHAHA..FABULOUS!!!..Oh what a laaaugh!!

Mary in Ugg boots, Isabella suckling away, Frederik with a stubby in his hand, "wedding tackle" in the other and socks and thongs and Christian picking his nose. How entirely bogan!! The complete opposite to what the Crown Princely family are.

The Tasmanian Devil was a bit much though, I gotta say...:ohmy::lol::rofl:

I think (hope) Mary and Frederik would find it really quite funny, to be honest. I know I would...I do!!!

Haha, I hope so too. This painting is simply hilarious. :lol:

Fashionista100 03-10-2008 08:00 AM

Honestly, I don't care for it. I think it's vulgar.

What is a bogan?

msleiman 03-10-2008 09:36 AM

I think that the painting is in very bad taste.

sgl 03-10-2008 10:52 AM

I understand the point that the artist was trying to make, but I still think that this painting is icky.

Gaia 03-10-2008 12:29 PM

I think this painting says a lot about the artist. Vulgar is an understatement IMO.

T4phage 03-10-2008 01:01 PM

Wow, that's a disgusting painting...I don't think Mary will like it, or perhaps she will see the humor in it, which I don't see myself...

grevinnan 03-10-2008 01:05 PM

This painting tells me more about the artist than I would ever want to know.

Duke of Marmalade 03-10-2008 01:22 PM

OK that's satire guys. Just take it as it is. Some will find it funny, others don't. These days it's easy to cover a money making or attention seeking purpose with satire but what can we do. Laugh if we find it funny and shrug our shoulders if we don't.

GlitteringTiaras 03-10-2008 01:58 PM

Agreed.

The painting is the complete polar opposite of the family's life (or what we believe it to be). I "get" the artist's perspective, and although many would love it, while others will not, in the end, it's art. I mean, it's not like it's going to ruin Mary, Frederik, and family, right?:smile: It's art.

Lilla 03-10-2008 02:28 PM

I love that painting. It turns everything up side down in a funny and provokative way. Letting Frederik hold on to a beer-bottel is a wonderfull idea.
