Last night, H.K.H. The Crown Prince of the Jewish Society and the official Denmark's memorial ceremony in connection with the 75th anniversary of the Jews' flight to Sweden. The memorial ceremony took place in the Synagogue in Copenhagen, and here is his Royal Highness with the President of Israel, H.E. Reuven Rivlin.

Frederik is going to Aarhus to plant an oak-tree on 31. October.
https://jyllands-posten.dk/aarhus/EC...geeg-i-aarhus/

The tree is 12 meters high and will be planted at Frederik's plads (square) in a relatively new part of central Aarhus.
Very close to the local unemployment office BTW. With the unemployment rate being so low, perhaps they couldn't find anyone to dig the hole for the tree, so they called in Frederik?
Amazing what royals are used for.

Possibly because Royals have more experience than anyone else. I hope he doesn't aggravate his back condition tho.
Usually the local council turn the soil over before hand to make it easier I believe. They do so here in case the ground is rock hard.
Imagine Frederick swinging a pick axe for instance. Ha!

Will you go to watch?

If I can get away from the phone for a few hours I will.

Well, it's located in a part of Aarhus that was a part of the main railway station, so perhaps an engine is buried there...
IIRC it right around where a locomotive was neatly placed on top of a building by the blast, when an ammunition ship exploded in Aarhus harbor during WWII.
I've seen photos of that locomotive. It looks like someone had picked it up and carefully placed it on top of a building!
Several members of my family experienced that explosion first hand.

"The Crown Prince plants the tree with 100 schoolchildren, who will all receive a small oak tree that they can take home and plant." - How nice

it's a gift from the city, "Crown Prince plants "Crown Prince's 50th Birthday Day" as protector of the Plant and Tree association."
H.K.H. Kronprinsen planter "Kronprinsens 50-års fødselsdagseg" | Kongehuset

In a couple of days, Frederik will be heading to Australia for the Invictus Games, more info
Med danske veteraner i Australien | Kongehuset
Besides visiting Invictus Games, the Crown Prince will also participate in the celebration of the Sydney Opera House's 45th anniversary.
Frederik had opened an exhibition earlier this year

Wow that's a really interesting story. An ammunition ship blast would make a hell of mess for sure.

no, it will be only Frederik. Mary has other events this week.

Article on Frederik's support for veterans and Invictus games
https://www2.forsvaret.dk/nyheder/ov...esiSydney.aspx

"I think it confirms the Crown Prince's personal commitment to the rehabilitation of the veterans.*...*And I know from my talks with the veterans that there is a strong motivation factor for them that the Crown Prince shows their interest"

"I have run with the Crown Prince at Royal Run and when he trained with DIF Soldier Project in the spring and I think it is wonderful that the Crown Prince gives us so much to veterans and that he is there for us in our fight against the injuries"

A great article on Frederik meeting the Danish swimmers
https://www.invictusgames2018.org/la...on-by-royalty/

"“It makes me feel even better that he saw that, because he’s been to many of our trainings,” said Lehrmann. I love that he’s really supportive of us all, and he knows - he’s been in the military too."
Lehrmann was inspired to compete at the Invictus Games after meeting the Crown Prince of Denmark in his role as an ambassador to The Danish Wounded Warriors Project"

Besides the Invictus Games and supporting the veterans, Frederik has also attended the 45th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House
45-års jubilæum for Operahuset i Sydney | Kongehuset

"Meeting Crown Prince Frederik today at the Opera House was a real treat - what a lovely human being he is "

"This week our beautiful Integra dogs have been a universal symbol of mental health support at the Invictus Games. We were so humbled to have the Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark thank Ken, his service dog Jaegar and the Integra team for the help we have been able to provide for his National team and the hundreds of other competitors and their families from across the globe"

Troels Kløvedal is in Danish context a household face. He's a true globetrotter and has made many docus about his countless travels.

It's good to see that he is honored while he i still alive. He is, alas, dying after having lived a full and rich life. - And that's the worst epitaph to have, is it?
