I couldn't agree more! All the holidays they've taken as a family together don't seem any bigger or more luxurious as any other family's annual holiday. Of course being a royal means you have some privileges other people don't have, but you'd be stupid if you didn't enjoy them. Because let's face it, if you were a royal and could enjoy some free things, you wouldn't turn it down either (at least I wouldn't)

I've learned Danish myself for about 2 years, and I must say that if I hear a Danish speaking person on tv or so, I don't understand much, so respect where respect is due!

I think Marie is fabulous, but I don't think this outfit is very festive! It's indistinguishable from office gear... come to think of it, royals tend not to wear black to events, or such dark colours as to photograph black. Is that right? Might be a "rookie error" ...

The fair Marie said in her Speech: "It's lovely to be back. Last year I went to visit the Tønder Festival and the event impressed me very much. I look forward to yet another festival with really good music. A very happy festival to all".

It's also a novelty for the festival to have a royal patron and they were not quite sure how to use a patron.
Well, for starters they get more attention in the press. Apart from the local papers, festivals like Tønder (unfortunately) don't get much attention in the nation wide papers.

There's something I really like about Marie, she gives off a natural aura, at least she seems to in photo's and video's. As an aside, she is very pretty also.

I've actually reconsidered my own criticism here - I think her outfit is very appropriate - it's a "bohemian" sort of festival, and Marie can't exactly outfit herself in hippie gear, so plain almost-casual was the best way to go!

It would appear Iceflower and Marika86 :flowers: are stille asleep, otherwise they would have beaten me to this: Billed-Bladet - Prinsesse Marie: En pige vil også være dejligt

Our Marie was, as you know, at the opening of the Tønder Folk Music Festival yesterday.
Tønder town is located about three kilometres from Schackenborg and as such she's probably very familiar with the town.
Anyway, she was naturally asked about her pregnancy: I'm so happy and we are very much looking forward".
Someone must have referred to what Joachim said recently, to which she smiled: "What has my husband said"?
She added: "As long as it's a healthy child, I'm happy. However, a girl would be nice".

This is a folk music festival, right? Let's have some folk music then. :cool:

Someone must have been tying you down then, you are usually among the first with the news. :lol:
Thanks, Iceflower :flowers:
It's strange. For whatever reason Google translate flatly refuse to translate the BT article into English for me. It' insists on switching back to the original article, even though I've checked the settings. Weird!
I sometimes check the google translations to see if there are nuances or details that are missed. I can't in this case... :ermm:

So to be on the safe side: Our Marie was asked (by a reporter from Ekstra Bladet I understand) how it was to be pregnant for the fourth time (yeah, I didn't get the joke either) and that made her crack up completely. Actually it took Marie quite a while before she could stop laughing.
La belle Marie: "For the fourth time?!?" Going down laughing.
- "I don't think it will ever become routine to be pregnant. It's always something new and that's very exciting".
- "Everything is fine. I'm really fine".
- "I don't know if I'm going to have more children".

The video: That was Bruce Springsteen: Pay me my money down. :cool:

I've also noticed that problem some days ago, so far only with links from bt.dk. For me it helps
to click on "translate"/"übersetzen" again after the page has switched back to the Danish version,
then it stays - at least for me, not sure if that's the general solution.


Here's a gallery from ppe!

Thanks for the photos iceflower, Princess Marie looked nice. I'm pleased that she bought little Henrik with her too, it's good to see that he's starting to appear at more at events with his parents. He's a little cutie.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #35, 2013.
Written by Ken Richter.

The Tønder Festival is a folk music festival. As Tønder is a cosy little town the atmosphere tend to be almost intimate and it's almost impossible to get lost. Just use the church as a gathering point.
Located some three kilometres straight down the road from Schackenborg the town is within a comfortable walking distance. And M&J have indeed been to the festival in private at different occasions, alone or together.
Our Marie is patron of the festival and this year she brought her husband and son with her. Both adults and child were issued with a festival-armband. Marie were handed flowers, bette Henrik a couple of drumsticks, Joachim got nothing...

And now we know that apart from cars music, or rather drumming, is something that seems to interest the boy!
He drummed away on everythingh within reach, including his mother's behind. - Judging from the picture in the article he wasn't teasing, he looked like he was geniunely playing to some tune in his head and as far as I can tell this is not the first time he has got a pair of drumsticks in his hands. Indeed the article informs us that he has a set of drums at home. (*)
Marie laughed: "Don't hit me". (**)

This was a hot day and a soft ice, now that's something to your son's mind away from drums and bette Henrik did indeed enjoy his ice. - Wearing a festival T-shirt bette Henrik was completely undisturbed by the photographer.

M&J had seen two concerts Joachim told, with Caroline Chocolate Drops from USA and Irish Hudson Taylor. Joachim said: "It's utterly fantastic to be here with really good music and then there is a very special atmosphere. Apart from that the weather is excellent. - It's the first time Henrik is here".

(*) Try imagine Schackenborg with three lively boys and a soon just as lively girl - and a set of drums! :frazzled:

(**) I guess some mothers would take this as a compliment. Having a behind as tight as drum skin.
