He's recorded a video for this meeting. :flowers:

Thank you for the video, lumutqueen. I watched the video. I could hear Prince Fredrick's accent. Is it his danish accent?

Thanks for the video! :flowers:
Prince Frederic has taken on the such fashionable issue such as the global warming. That is a good news. Given the fact that Copenhagen is to host a conference related to the climate changes, it was wise on the part of Crown Prince Frederic to attend a similar conference in New York and participate in discussions.
Prince Frederic's command in English is excellent. His accent is not very pronounced.

It is good to see Prince Frederik doing something more than just happen to be the man next to Princess Mary. He should start to scheme a much more deeper profile to himself than he currently seem to have.

I find his accent intriguing. I was expecting something a bit more British but it sounds quite American actually. Im glad he has take a visible stance on global warming though. Especially with Copenhagen hosting the Summit soon. He has a very calming voice I think. Fit for a King.

Prince Frederik's English is excellent! I am also pleased to see him devoting time and attention to the cause of global warming.

I wonder if the Crown Prince has a valet with him on these overseas trips or would he dress himself??:flowers:

Great pictures and video - many thanks!

Frederick has a more pronounced accent than his brother. Joachim speaks with a cut-glass English accent almost as well as Queen Margrethe. I applaud Frederik for taking an interest in climate change as we all should do.

I think he looks preety damn fine tbqh. I think he does dress himself, with Mary's advice sometimes. :smile:

This event is shaping up good, i'm glad Frederik is taking part in an event like this. :flowers:

susan alicia 09-23-2009 12:50 PM

I think/hope his motives are a bit more sincere :flowers:
He seems to me like a lovely intelligent man (he fell in love with Mary after all) though I do not think it clever of the organizers to put the auto que to the right instead of in front of him and he does look a bit nervous and staring to the right which is not natural.

I was thinking that Fred would have more of a British sounding accent like his brother Joachim. Back to the subject- I'm glad he's taking on such an important issue and that he's putting himself out there via YouTube.

MARG 09-24-2009 12:24 AM

Misplaced auto-cue or not, he is very expressive and whilst he is trying to appear very formal, his "eyebrow action" gives the speech his own personal touch.

As an aside, I think he has a lovely speaking voice and am glad that he does not speak with a "cut glass" upper class english accent. He speaks as what he is, a man whose first language is not english but would put more than a few "english" speakers to shame. More importantly, his diction is perfect and he resists the current trend to speak as quickly as a runaway train.

As to his dress standard, it is as he is, like a kid dressed for a party and exhorted not to get it dirty or messy he leaves home. It adds to both his charm and his enthusiasm for his given topic.

Frederik is cute, I really admire him! I think it is good that he is also on youtube now!

Guiomar 09-24-2009 11:04 AM

Thank you for the video, lumutqueen.

I'm glad he is dedicated to this subject.
