The first picture in the gallery you posted, is not of Marselisborg Manor but of a nearby villa, locally known as mini-Marselisborg, because it is build in the same style as the manor. - But it is a good deal smaller and it's also closer to the beach.
Here is a gallery from BT: Se billederne: Kronprinsen omgivet af dobbeltgænger, nøgen mand og bikini-piger | www.bt.dk
Two girls tanning themselves at the beach were completely undisturbed be the crowd passing by.
The young naked man was a part of an artwork by Nina Saunders, who explains: "The bridge represents a dreamy state of mind, something real and unattainable and by coating it with gold (the bridge not the behind) it becomes more and something other that a bathing-bridge.
It's important that it's a younger man who is on the bridge, because he symbolizes how difficult it is for many young to get a job, the unattaineble again". (- Well, wouldn't you know... If she hadn't said so, that idea might have not have entered my mind...).
Frederik is very interest in art and he said: "All the works are exciting. For example a floating sauna. That's a stroke of genius. It's supposed to start the imagination. That's the most important thing".

Frederik and the crowd walked the entire length of the exhibition, which streches for several kilometres along the coast and towards the end, the beach get quite narrow, hence the reason why they are climbing over the wave-breakers.

Frederik started the exhibition by launching 64 red baloons and saying: "I was in no doubt at all that Sculpture by the Sea had to go to Aarhus. I know the area well, so I know that nature he is fantastic for it".
- And he is very much right. the combination of beach, sea, forest and city makes the coast among the most beautiful in DK.
The two previous exhibitions have been a tremendous succes! We are talking in the order of 600.000 people or so going to see the exhibition.
Quite a number are Germans and Swedes as well.
That's the equivalent of more than two million Australians going to see the exhibition at Sydney.
Mrs. Muhler and I certainly intend to go this year as well.

http://www.tv2oj.dk/artikel/167174:A...ik--Kom-herned Another video of Frederik encouraging people to visit the exhibition. Unfortunately he and Mary will be very busy the next month, so he wouldn't promise he and Mary would come. - Says the text, because there appears to be no sound...
ADDED AGAIN: More on the naked man from BT: http://www.bt.dk/royale/derfor-smed-...prins-frederik
As part of the artwork he will jump in the water every Sunday, with his feet covered in gold paint. - Yees, that sure is something to look forward to...
A little warning: One of the pics show full frontal nudity.

I must say, those paintings on the walls are growing on me, i like them more now.
Plus, i think Frederik got a haircut;)
Thanks, Polyesco. :smile:
Yes, DK is really rolling out the red carpet for this man!
Yu Zhengsheng is the fourth most powerful man in China and we are talking very, very serious export-orders!
Which is why Frederik as well as the Chairman of the Parliament, Mogens Løkketoft, are there to greet him.
Being Chairman of the Parliament is the highest post a Dane can reach without marrying into the DRF.
Thanks polyesco :flowers:
I'm so glad to see Frederik has returned to his short summer haircut. It suits him a lot. Now the summer can begin :biggrin:
today June 7th, Crown Prince Frederik presented two scholarships from the Crown Prince Frederik Fund to Donald Lønstrup Graugaard and Mette Møller Jørgensen.

gallery of event with more pics of Frederik
A nice picture of Frederik and a girl from yesterday - i bet she will be a royalist after this meeting :lol:
I have seen that several people has written here on TRF that they think Frederik appears more toned and slim than before. Muhler wrote that his guess was that Frederik is training for something.
And Muhler, I think you got it right ... This weekend, from Saturday to Sunday, Frederik will participate in a 24 hours continuously mountain bike race in Rude forest. :eek::notworthy:

Brief Summary of article in Billed Bladet #24, 2013.
Bare Mary når det - In the hope Mary will have time for it.
Written by Ken Richter.
As you already know Frederik opened the exhibition Sculpture by the Sea. Frederik hoped he and Mary would find time to see the exhibition together. He said about the location along Aarhus Bay: "That the exhibition came to Aarhus is not the result of some random throw of the dice. It's because I know the area and has been influenced/shaped by the city and the nature around it. The forest blend in with the sea and I'm glad I got the idea massaged into the head of the manager of the art museum Aros, Jens Erik Sørensen".
QMII has visited the two previous exhibition incognito and she said to Aarhus Stiftstidende, local newspaper: "The exhibition has an enormous backing in the city and that pleases me so. I think it's really amusing (*) that people in Aarhus has really embrased the idea and been pleased with it".
In fact Mrs. Muhler and I saw the exhibition Tuesday late afternoon, without spotting neither Mary nor QMII, alas. It's quite a decent stroll some five kilometres altogether along the beach and back through the forest. https://www.box.com/shared/3cuj407469
We also went to see the exhibited scultures and other ideas at Hotel Marselis - it's free... and that is very recommended for an alternative view of the sculptures.
We both agreed that the last exhibition appealed more to us. We both liked a sculture called Snake, basically a large weathervane, which really deserves a place along the coast.http://www.dr.dk/NR/rdonlyres/1215F0...aa90_sbs9.jpeg
I was drooling over a fence made from driftwood, while Mrs. Muhler fell in love with a sculpture called Bubble, no 5 - alas, there wasn't room in the trunk.http://insightoutmagazine.files.word...pg?w=470&h=352
We both hoped they would keep the Forest Organ, basically pipes attached to treetrunks emitting a sound when the wind passed through, it was both eerie and soothing to listen to at the same time. http://sorenlyngso.dk/wordpress/wp-c.../skovorgel.jpg
(*) Morsomt = amusing. QMII's favorite expression.
Mary's favorite expression is: fantastisk.
:previous:thank you Muhler as always:flowers: for the articles plus the pictures. The sculptures are interesting.
this seems a project that Frederik really enjoys :smile:
You are welcome, Polyesco. :smile:
He's not alone and should an Australian or two who have seen the exhibitions in Sydney drop by and have a look, they will hopefully enjoy the setting the artworks are presented in in Aarhus. - And after the strenous stroll they can walk to the nearby Marselisborg Marina and enjoy a cool beer. :cheers:
