Aw, a cute photo of little Grace in the sunset! No dog could replace Ziggy I'm sure, but it seems clear that Grace is just as loved

For a much more northernly country Denmark is not that far behind Britain in regards to sunset. Here in the London suburbs the sun set at 4:15pm today. Do you get white nights in Denmark? I know a lot of Scandinavian countries get them but I wasn't sure about Denmark.

Yes we get bright summer nights for a few days if the weather is clear. Or more correctly, it doesn't get really dark. Otherwise it's dark for only some 3½-4 hours in the height of summer.

But go to Oslo and Stockholm and summer nights are much more common.

Interesting, thank you Muhler.
I spent New Year's in 2013/14 in the Swedish arctic circle and I remember arriving in Kiruna, the town I stayed in, at 1pm and the sun was already setting. Whilst I was there I had to do all activities that required light in the morning because it got so dark so early.

The many comments tell how much the Danes enjoy having a modern Crown Princess who kindly shares some of her private pictures of children, nature and Copenhagen with all of us.

I came to think about how it works in practice It's their royal staff who administer the DRF's social media. It is them who post, write the texts, control the pages and keep track of comments and so on. But we see many times that Frederik & Mary almost "live" post a picture that they self have taken. Maybe they also have access to the accounts? I can clearly imagine that it is Frederik & Mary's idea and suggestions to come on the social media. It may also be that Mary takes a picture, think 'hey, that it is a beautiful view of Copenhagen', sending it to their IT-staff with a small text, and then they post it? What do you think?

As you surely know there is a new biography of Crown Prince Frederik out on the street.
I am much looking forward to reading it! It should be good and honest. The book reviews says it is a very honest Crown Prince and book and that a royal biography not has been seen so honest before. The interviews with his wife Mary make the book even more personal. Muhler, have you got the book? I get mine in the coming week.

Here are some of the private photos we see in the book

Crown Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary and their children Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine celebrating Christmas with Crown Princess Mary's family in Australia in December 2015:

The biography seems really interesting, I wonder if it will ever be published in English. Here's hoping it will be successful because I can't read Danish

The unseen photo of Josephine and Frederik is adorable. It looks like it's from an official shoot. I wonder why they didn't publish it.

The photo looks like it could be from the official visit to Greenland a few years ago. They had a photographer during the whole visit who probably took photos for the DRF archives, or something like that.

I met during my holidays Tourists from Demnark.
I asked about their Royals and they told me " I may tell you Prince Henrik had a happy life in Denmark."
i asked for the future Monarchs and was told " we will have a Queen number 2 !"

Yes, we'll have a Queen Ingrid 2.0, and I'm very fine with that! Oh yes!

I'm however not ancient enough (although my children believe so) to remember Frederik IX, but all indications point to us having a Frederik IX 2.0 as well. And that ain't bad either.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #47, 2017.
Written by the incomparable Ulrik Ulriksen.

Christmas is descending upon us and that is also the case in M&F's home.
As in most schools there are various Christmas related activities during December - Also at Tranegårds School, where M&F's children are going. For the twins it will be the first time they will have school-Christmas events with the big children.
The school Christmas tree will be decorated by the 0. graders, among them Vincent and Josephine.

Christian being a 6th grader will be involved in the Lucia procession on 13th December. Christian will be in the procession as well, albeit not as the Lucia-bride...

On Mondays and Fridays through December there will communal singing of Christmas songs and psalms at the school, in the morning.

The school will go to the nearby Hellerup Church to mark the end of the year, before the go on Christmas holiday. Parent may attend as well - so we may see M&F, even though I doubt it.

It's almost become a tradition for M&F plus children to go to Tivoli in December as well.

With all those brunettes entering the various royal families these years it was bound to happen: Mary and Meghan are compared by Daily Mail: Meghan Markle and Princess Mary's similar fashion sense | Daily Mail Online

They have pretty much, almost, nearly, close to the same style.

Really? Judge from the photos they are just wearing clothes with same colours to me.

(and again, Mary is being dig up for fashion comparison whenever there is new royal spouse)

Thank you Roskilde for this update.

So close to Christmas already and we hadn't heard a whisper of this down here in Australia as far as I'm aware.

Shouldn't have been suprised though - indeed here every second year, 2011, 2013, 2015 and now 2017.

I suppose with Frederik here for the Hamilton Island yacht race a few months ago, I assumed that was this year's trip and Mary didn't make it.

I wonder if they will spend their time together here in Australia, or all go off to a resort in Fiji or something.

Are there any official details, or is it to be kept as private as possible.

Due back early in the New Year for the usual official occasions I guess.

We're having a hot, dry summer already in a lot of the country, so hopefully a lot of beach days.

Thanks for the photo too - great to see Mary's family included.

And that is only right and fair.
Once Mary becomes queen she may not have the opportunity to visit Australia that often, not even at Christmas.
I think the Danes would expect our regent couple to celebrate Christmas in DK most years.

It's a question of adherence. The current Regent Couple usually celebrate Christmas at Marselisborg, confirming their adherence to Aarhus and Jutland.

Previous: I agree so glad she can come back to Australia. She won’t be able to do it later. It’s going to be a really hot Christmas here

Last year F&M and children touched down in Australia around the December 6-7th, and had 3 weeks there.

We must see today when the royal calendar gets updated.. when F&M and children seems to travel this Christmas. I can see Frederik is regent until 10th December - I guess the family will travels here after.

They started in Perth last time, then travelled across to the Gold Coast and then down the coast to Byron Bay, where they spent the majority of their time. It will be interesting to see where they end up during this trip!

Two years ago is when they went. December 2015.
