Frederik gave a personal speech to Troels Kløvedal yesterday: https://www.bt.dk/royale/kronprinsen...oels-kloevedal
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...ryllebundet-os

Suffering from a severe lung disease as well as ALS, the 75 year old Troels Kløvedal has lost the ability to speak and he is now so weak that he can hardly type anymore. But his brain is still fully functioning.

Years ago Troels Kløvedal made a documentary about the Danish navy's history, where QMII played a prominent role. One episode took place aboard Dannebrog where he and QMII talked about the navy and also Dannebrog. And you can hardly imagine a bigger contrast! Troels Kløvedal looking very much like the 68'er he basically is and QMII...
Yes, somehow they seemed to hit it off and it was both and interesting and entertaining discussion the two of them had. - (Of course you can usually rely on something meaningful coming out of her mouth when QMII engage herself in a docu.)

But back to Frederik's speech.
"You (informal) have spellbound us through decades and generations.
I have followed you and many have been aboard the North Caper (The sailing boat in which Troels Kløvedal and his family went on many journeys.) and felt your passion for sailing and living.
I went to sea with you from north to south through Guldborgsund ( a strait) some years ago. But that was enough to sense where you stand and sail and where your freedom is."

Tomorrow, The Crown Prince conducts the opening of a Kasper Eistrup exhibition. Museum of Natural History, Frederiksborg Castle where a new portrait will be revealed

"Kasper Eistrup, known as former singer and guitarist in the Danish band Kashmir, has now devoted himself to the arts. For the Museum he has painted a new portrait of HRH Crown Prince Frederik. On this occasion, the new portrait will be displayed in a special exhibition, which presents a wide range of Kasper Eistrup's other works."


I think we get a sneak peak in this tweet but I cant see the article

I think it's a good portrait, it captures Frederik well as a person.

Kasper Eistrup was a member of the band Cashmere, which still is one of Frederik's absolute favorite bands, so the two of them had some interesting conversations about this and that while the painting was being painted.
I have the impression from seeing videos of the two together, that they genuinely like and respect each other.

The portrait have received varied comments, not least because it is so open to interpretation.
Why is he sitting alone in the couch?
Is the dry martini a reference to Frederik, the action man?
Is the way he sits a description of his laid back personality?
Is it a portrait of a man, who is at ease and ready to take over?
And so on.

Yes, it is a strange portrait where the sofa is central.

It's empty with Frederick squeezed up one end with his arm open to someone joining him.
It looks like someone waiting in the wings.
It looks set in a lobby, a restaurant or a public space.
Fred, himslf, is illustrated with not much liveliness or personality. He could almost be having a quiet smoke - though he is not.
Who is he hoping to meet?

Don't show these photos to Polyesco, Iceflower, she'll go ga ga.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #47, 2018.
Written by our art critic, Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you a new portrait of Frederik was unveiled recently. The painting commissioned by the National Historic Museum at Frederiksborg, has already been dubbed The Bond Painting here in DK.
The dry Martini, the dapper dress and cool attitude is no coincidence according to the artist, Kasper Eistrup.
Officially the painting is named Lancier.

Kasper Eistrup is also a member of the band Kashmir, which Frederik is very fond of! As such the two of them have gotten to know each other fairly loosely that way.

Kasper Eistrup who only fairly recently has taken up painting in earnest was pretty surprised that that he had been selected to paint a new portrait of Frederik.
Kasper Eistrup wanted to paint a portrait that was more than just a future king. The painting is as such also about a person in balance and a man who is perhaps peaking as an individual, husband, father and leading member of the DRF.
The similarity with James Bond is no accident. Kasper Eistrup believe Frederik has the same charm and extroversion (is that correct? Extroversion for someone who is extrovert.) as the secret agent.

In his speech at the unveiling Frederik emphasized that he had been very comfortable with both the artist and with being painted.
At the same time he was perfectly well aware that the interaction and conversation he had with artist during the process would be a part of what the artist depicted in the painting. I.e. capturing the impression on the personality of the subject.
He also told how he as a boy wasn't that keen about being portrayed, that was tedious and boring! But today he likes it and find it's fun.

You can study the painting better in the article here:

I feel, the Prince looks rather sad: watery eyes, deep wrinkles and all...


Hopefully, it is just the weather!

A great balance I think. A different kind of painting but it captured, i think, a man at ease and comfort.
