I didn't realise Mary was 48 already simply because she looks fantastic for her age!

Although I don't like paparazzi photos, it's good to see Frederik, Mary and the children doing well in Switzerland.
They seems to have two/three weeks now without need to travel home for official duties (its the official winter holiday in Denmark this coming week)

I must be a thrill for Frederik and Mary - after having dropped off their children to school - to have plenty of good quality time together. Almost like before they got kids. Good breeding ground for some romantic time As we can see in the pictures Frederik and Mary celebrated Mary’s birthday on the slopes after they have dropped off the children in school. They deserves this little ‘break’ after 15 year with a tireless work schedule in the DRF and I hope now they finally have the opportunity to relax a little and gather strength - that they allow themselves to do it and thus come back with new energy. They may not get that opportunity again.

I'm glad that Frederik and Mary are seeing the children regularly in Switzerland. Starting a new school is daunting enough so I can imagine it is even more so in a new country that speaks a language you don't speak natively, so having familiar faces around will help the children adjust a great deal.

Mary lives with the children in Switzerland, so yes, I would hope that she sees them regularly

It seems Frederick is around as much as possible as well (as was already suggested).

Since their move:
* Frederick he had engagements in Switzerland and only 3 days with activities in Denmark (Jan 23 & 28 & 31).
* Mary had 2 days with engagement in Denmark (Jan 29 & 31)
So, they probably had someone come over to spend time with the children last week as both of them had activities in Denmark.

For the month of February only one engagement is scheduled for Frederick (Feb 20) and none for Mary.

It seems princess Benedikte is a bit more active these months - in support of her sister.

At the moment, yes. The DRF calendar is updated weekly.

Royal enthusiast Katherine from Germany sent Crown Princess Mary a card to wish her well on her 38th birthday, but received a 'strange' reply

Oh dear, maybe a printing error somehow? It does seem really rather a strange reply to have pre-printed up IMO. Hey ho, maybe the Danish royals are trying to cut down on postage costs and are sending this to everyone who writes to them in the hope it puts them off doing so again in the future.

A mistake I guess.

A standard reply to a request, but simply sent to the wrong recipient.

Why should a secretary waste ten minutes personally writing a letter declining a request for an autograph, containing basically the same wording?

Mary is in Switzerland, I doubt anything but the most important personal letters are forwarded to her these days.

I say: Try again next year.

I agree: sounds like a mix-up in recipient. I am sure they get requests from fans asking for an autograph and picture and apparently they want to discourage that. In their opinion, it probably should be on their own initiative when they decide to send an autographed picture in respons to a birthday wish instead of a 'request' that they are expected to fulfill.

It sounds like it was indeed a mistake from the court. I hope the fan is made up for and gets a royal reply next time!

Just imagine this coming from another Princess...
I find it even strange to have a prepared reply card for the occasion somebody might ask for a signed card.
Instead of sending this reply, why not send back a photo with a facsimile signature?
A royal joke, really. Tides can turn easily, as they see know when looking back on how Switzerland was handled.

And I imagine, that had this been any other Princess you wouldn't have reacted at all....

If the court has printed cards ready it seems they do get many requests for signed photos and don't want to send such photos.

Seems obvious to me a reply was sent to the wrong person.
This lady should have received a standard reply along the lines of The Crown Princess thanks you for your good wishes and kind thoughts.
I would say a staffer messed up.

"His Royal Highness The Crown Prince suffered a minor injury in the left shoulder last week in connection with skiing in Switzerland. The Crown Prince has therefore today been examined and treated at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.

The treatment consisted of an uncomplicated operation, which proceeded according to plan. The shoulder injury does not affect the Crown Prince's official program."

Having an operation doesn’t sound like a minor injury to me

Minor enough that he could wait a few days and fly home to deal with it.
The press release says the injury happened last week and that his official calendar continues, he has an event this Thursday.

Frederik is learning that turning 50 does make a difference.
