It must be those red pants that won him a spot

Perhaps.

But more likely because he is clean shaven. Stubbles may look sexy when you are in your 20's, but later than that it just looks sloppy.

I dunno Muhler, Frederik looks great with a beard as well.

Billed Bladet has a gallery up from two years ago when Frederik completed the Ironman challenge. A wonderful event that I remember following.

"Today, two years ago, Crown Prince Frederik completed Ironman
In 2013 conducted Crown Prince Frederik as the first royal one Ironman, when he participated in KMD Ironman Copenhage"
Kronprins Frederik gennemførte ironman | billedbladet.dk

wonderful gallery of a very athletic Frederik becoming an Ironman
Kronprins Frederik gennemfører KMD Ironman Copenhagen 2013 | billedbladet.dk
love the pic of him waving to his family and getting the support from the crowd.
a nice pic as well

Last weekend, the Crown Prince Couple attended the christening of Countess Ingeborg, the daughter of Count Bendt Wedell and his wife Pernille in Holmens Church in Copenhagen. The Crown Prince was one of the six godparents for the little Countess:

I'm tempted to buy that issue just to find out whether that christening really was as unique as they write on the front page (and if so, what made it so unique? Now I'm curious, damnit!) or if BB is just laying it on thick

Jokes aside, they're such a handsome couple

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #34, 2015.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Saturday afternoon on a sweltering summers day, M&G went to Holmens Kirke (The Naval Church, where the twins were christened) for the baptism of the daughter of their friends, Pernille and Bendt Wedell.
The daughter, named Ingeborg, was born five months ago on the island of Funen.
On a day to day basis the family, which includes two sons as well, live on the estate of Wedellsborg Gods on the island of Funen. http://historiskatlas.dk/image/52/57252.jpg
But they also have a mansion in Copenhagen and here the parents, sons and godfathers gathered for a photo shoot, before going to the church. That meant M&F arrived separately, because Frederik was one of six godfathers.
Instead Mary was accompanied by Jørgen and Malou Skeel and Søren Jessen, who owns a restaurant in London with his Irish wife, Flora Montgomery, who is an actress.
In the church, Mary was the highest ranking among the guests, so she sat alone up front, while Frederik sat with the other godfathers and the family.

The baptism was performed by a friend of the family, the retired (provst = a kind of senior priest, help FasterB!) Claus Harms.
The child voiced her sincere protest when she was christened Ingeborg Wilhelmine Alexandrine Korsbek Wedell-Wedellsborg.

After the baptism there was a glass of champagne and a dinner at the Wedell mansion.
(I'll later post an updated map of where their estate is located).

The other guests were basically one long list of older friends of M&F.

But see for yourselves here: https://app.box.com/s/ghee92w53k5q9xkd7irkt33hpm88e7jc

(There doesn't appear to be much interest in the scans, so from now on I'll only upload to TRF occasionally).

Updated map, where the Wedellsborg Estate has been added: https://app.box.com/s/5pc2zsdggt19264bqvfd



Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #34, 2015.
Where a Anne Petersen would like to know about Ziggy and how old she is.

Jon Bloch Skipper informs us that Ziggy was a wedding present and that she was born 13th January 2005 and that M&F received the dog in April that year.
Danish Kennel Club was behind the gift.

Border collies become around twelve years old, although some live to become fourteen years.

Yes, as always thanks Muhler for your great work.

Is it just me, or wasn't BB's journalist Anna Johansson retired? I see it is her who has written the article.

Nice pictures from the christening and of Frederik and Mary at the church. They're a lovely couple.

Doesn't sound that unique a Christening to me apart from the royalty in attendance, of course.

BB is right calling it a special christening, since it was held on a Saturday and not as a part of the Sunday service as usual

A Provst is the leader of a number of priests and reports to the Bishop. So a Provst is some kind of middle leader

I would also voice my sincere protest over that name

Perhaps the word "enestående" is the same as the Swedish "enastående" and means exceptional, fabulous, wonderful as in an absolutely wonderful event. I don't believe it means a unique or special event. Just that it was splendid.
