A nice BB video of the family at Esrum Lake.
At 0:40 grandpapa Henrik stops Isabella in her tracks and asks: "Where is you brother? - You must find him". And send her away.

Later on PH sneaks himself to a big bite of Christian's sausage.

that video is so cute

I think Christian and Isabella are so use to grandpa Henrik and his ways and of his stealing some of their food.

I noticed in the beginning of the video some cute looks between Isabella and Henrik.

Fred doesn't look much warmer and he has long pants on. My guess is they dressed themselves...they are certainly old enough to do so!

I almost had to laugh out loud in the last part of the video. Christian's facial expressions when grandpa takes a so-called bite and only half of the sausage return Christian looks like

Try to translate:

On the way to the car grandpa Henrik asks Bella: Where's you brother? Isabella says she don't know, but Frederik laughingly walk past and says: He (Christian) is just about to eat his sausage, can he take his sausage with him?

Grandpa Henry says to Christian: You give a mouthful to your grandpa, right... Christian who finally have gotten his sausage have to obey orders when Frederik says: He will just take a little 'haps'. Both Frederik and Christian became wiser...

Isabella who otherwise had tried to sneak herself to tasting Christian's sausage before grandpa was rescued in the end when a lady calls "Isabellaa" and comes with a sausage for her. Isabella says a deeply: Oh thank you.

Then it was time to finally drive back home. Grandpa Henrik half a sausage richer. Christian half a sausage poorer.

Last week Crown Princess Mary was seen with Princess Marie (and Prince Joachim) at Tivoli.
Crown Prince Frederik was at that time in South Korea for the IOC.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #19, 2014.
Written by Henrik Salling.

As you know by now, grandpapa Henrik invited his oldest son and two grandchildren to one of his more merry duties, the opening of the tourist boat season at Esrum Lake near Fredensborg.
At Fredensborg PH really lets his hair down and it was in typical fashion that he dispensed with a driver on the short drive from Fredensborg, and sat himself behind the wheel in Buick Centurion 1972. (Vintage cars have dispensation from using seatbelts. Alas, not having a vintage Bugatti myself, I'm not too familiar with the rules).
The last stretch towards the lake and the boat house was with Christian sitting on the lap of PH and with his hands too on the steering wheel. With daddy Frederik on the passenger seat and with an adjutant and Bella in the rear.
Normally that's an offense that would cost you a hefty fine, a major dressing down by the police in front of your children and you having to pass a drivers test. And that's expensive too because you have to have a number of lessons first!

Anyway, such technicalities aside, Christian and Bella were equipped with lifejackets and hand in hand with grandpapa (*) they went to the boat bridge where a ribbon had been placed. Equipped with a pair of scissors they helped each other (sort of, since they both seemed to insist on having their hands on the scissor) cutting the ribbon, with a delighted dad looking on and grandpapa announcing: "WE hereby declare the boat-tour open".
Then it was time for a little ride on the boat and the children learned the hard way, that the adults were perhaps right, when they told to dress more warmly...
But back on land it was time for a speech or two, while the children buried themselves under some blankets. - Not as the only children btw. I've noticed blankets were issued to other children that age as well.
But consolation came switftly in the shape of freshly grilled sausages. While the adults sipped wine at the boathouse, Christian and Bella darted like guided missiles towards the BBQ. (It's funny to notice Christian and Bella. Christian warmed his hands at the BBQ, Bella warmed her hands too. I'll bet five bananas it was Christian who decided that a shirt, shorts and a west would be adequate for a boat ride in early May - so Bella did so too).

Then it was time to drive home. This time with the children and the adjutant in the backseat, munching away on their sausages.

With them, but not in the same car, went the film photographer Jakob Jørgensen, who is making two portraits of PH to be aired on TV on PH turning 80 next month.

(*) I've heard PH referring to himself and being called grandpapa, that's why I don't write grandad or grandpa, in case you were wondering.

Not sure if this belongs here. Anyway.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #19, 2014.
Written by the omnipresent Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who was actually in Tivoli, Copenhagen, last week to cover a show, when unexpectedly Mary and our Marie walked in through the entrance side by side. Followed by Joachim and a number of friends they went through the garden to the Glass Hall, where the show was to begin.
The weather was great as you can tell from their light attire.

Frederik wasn't there, he was in Korea for an IOC meeting, but the friends Anna and Klavs von Lowsow, as well as Mette and Christian Ahlefeldt-Laurvig were there.

It was the satircal trio Platt-Form who entertained. It requires a considerable mastery of Danish and not least danish humour to apprciate let alone understand the typical mix of irony and more or less dirty innuendoes. Marie surprised me a a year or two ago by cracking up when she saw other comedians from Rytteriet. That's after all subtleties on a pretty advanced

Our reporter observed that they seemed to fully enjoy the show and they did also go backstage to meet the trio after the show, where they stayed for about half an hour.
When they left the Glass Hall Mary said: "It was really funny". Then she and the others strolled over to a restaurant also located in Tivoli, Restaurant Nimb's Terrace.
It was dark when they left and Marie had prudently wrapped a shawl around her.
- Joachim has really become relaxed after marrying Marie! Wearing smart blue pants and would you imagine, no less than two of his buttons in his shirt was left unbottoned! I mean, the man was practically flashing the public...!

Since I know that two or three among you may be interested in having a closer look at what Mary, Marie and not least Joachim was wearing, here is something to feast your eyes on:

Joachim certainly knows how to make use of a good tailor!

I think both Felix and Athina look very much like their father.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2014. (Which is out early due to a holyday on Friday. FasterB can explain).
Written by Hanne Rask

The close friends of the DRF, Nina Wedell-Wedellsborg and Peter Aandahl celebrated their silver anniversary Saturday and before going to the European Song Contest M&F dropped by to congratulate and share a toast.

The party took place at restaurant Nimbs in Tivoli and among the guests were also Joachim and our Marie, as well as Countess Alexandra. Her Martin couldn't come he was at a friend's birthday.
Apart from those, there were 150 other guests and they were as far as I can see one long list of friends of both M&F and J&M.
The party lasted to 03.00 where most of the guests left Tivoli together.

Now, observe and admire Joachim's attire, befitting a perfect gentleman. Notice especially his sash in the wild colors. Mark my words, there's a hippie inside Joachim just waiting to come out.

Thank you, Polyesco and that leads me to the final summary this week.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #22, 2014.
Written by our reporter on the range, Annelise Weimann.

PH and Frederik (as well as Joachim) are both members of the Copenhagener Shooting Society and as such they are fellow "shooting brothers".

The restaurant at Sølyst is located near the Riyal Shooting Range and it's here the shooting society practice their marksmansship, inbetween dinners that is.
The society shoot at targets on which (I understand) pictures of birds are painted. 2000 such targets now hang a Sølyst and since they represent some 250 years of art history a book has been written about the targets.
That book is dedicated to Prince Henrik for his birthday and it was Frederik who presented his dad with the first book.
He did so with the words: "I'm proud to present the book to you (informal you). You are both my father and my brother".

However, while the brothers had a merry time, PH's dachhound Rosina decided to explore the place and she ended up in the kitchen of the restaurant before she was finally apprehended.
