I don't think it was common knowledge that they actually own a house in Verbier.
Personally I was under the impression the borrowed a house from some of their friends there.
Seems like a good investment though, considering the prices there!

Little French will be included. No enough between School and Ski to speak the language fluently.
Verbier is known for being the place to be , they will not meet people of the Street !
Many airplanes travels from the Crown Prince from Denmark to Verbier also !

I don't think the intention has ever been for them to become fluent in French in three months. As Isabella said, she and Christian are both learning it at home and will be able to use it in practise while in Switzerland. No one's ever said anything about meeting "people of the street" (the fewest of royals ever do), Christian said that they were looking forward to meeting people from different countries. Regarding the travels, you technically speaking have no idea how (and how much) they'll make their way back and forth yet, so there's nothing to base that assumption on.

I gotta say, I have never understood these token jabs at M&F on here. Like criticism on a reasonable ground, sure, but this just feels like a certain crowd has a need to get in there with their gall every time either of them do anything, and usually this gall is rooted in absolutely nothing. I mean, there's an entire other forum dedicated to that. Why not just take criticism for the sake of criticism there?

The school is bilingual and they ski twice a week. There's plenty of time to speak and improve the French that they've already been taught in Denmark.

Was that your experience when your children attended that school?

Is this Peter Warnoe's Chalet that they always used to stay in years ago. Or have they bought their own place or are they renting?
I hope Mary will get the chance to learn some French while staying over the 3 months.

They bought and have owned a chalet in Verbier for more than 10 years which means that they didn't always stay in Peter Warnøe's chalet...
That's just something that the Danish press has always reported.

The Realityportalen article mentions that they purchased the chalet post the 2008 financial crisis and that it was rather dilapidated at the time of the purchase which meant it wasn't nearly as expensive as chalets in Verbier usually are.

Thanks for that Nordic. I am only ten years out of date. I must have missed reading about it.

Mary referred to it as a ‘cabin’, and it really does look like a cabin rather than something grander.

more pictures can be found here (search Frederik Verbier)
http://legion-media.ru/index.html

"Far from protocol and official evenings, Frederik and Mary's life is punctuated by that of children and walks in the snow in the forest. Every day at 8 am, Frederik and Mary accompany their children to school, distant about fifteen minutes on foot from their chalet except Wednesday, the only day when the whole family goes to school by car because it is the day of the physical education course, in Verbier, it is compulsory skiing ...on Wednesday 8 January, Prince Frederik ordered a birthday cake from the village pastry shop"

Not sure, but the blond woman with them looks a lot like a friend from Australia, Josephine Rechner (?). She is Josephine's godmother.
The boy could be her son.
