Update on Verbier.

Frederik attended an event earlier today and here he was asked a few questions of interest to this thread.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/nu-taler-kr...t-goer-indtryk

First about the children in Verbier:
"It's great to see that the children have settled really well in the school and speak English and a little French."

And asked what the children are most fond of, he replied:
"They are fond of... they think it's exciting to wear school uniforms. And to have new school-mates as well.
Of course it's fun when you get to go skiing a little afterwards."

Then he was asked into their house in Verbier and to that he responded:
"Obviously the Crown Princess and I have noticed the focus of the last weeks on our present life in Switzerland and it makes an impression, it does indeed."

Sad! The Crown Prince couple have worked tireless the last 15 years as the most hardworking royals in the DRF and now they take 12 weeks do to a thing for children and as a family and then Frederik & Mary has the feeling that we don’t think they deserve it. That breaks my heart. Its only the tabloid newspaper who thinks that, and clear the people indeed thinks they both deserve it and that it is a wonderful education for the royal children. I hope Frederik and Mary, and the kids, can enjoy the weeks. They deserve it!

Great to hear the children have settled really well in the school course

It's great to hear an update from Frederik during his two events today.
Kids are quick to pick up new languages especially when they are immersed in it.
And yes, I am sure he and Mary noticed and anticipated the criticism. A calculated decision for their family time.

And thank you for the article from the Minister of defense and the Defense Chief. All is well

It has emerged that Frederik, prior to buying the house in Verbier, owned an apartment in Paris:
https://www.bt.dk/kendte/kronprinsen...u-er-den-solgt

That has been confirmed by the court. The apartment has been sold for an undisclosed amount.

The story is in the magazine Her & Nu, but it doesn't seem to be online, so I assume it's in the magazine edition this week.
I wonder if anyone has bought the magazine?

- As we know Mary worked in Paris for a period prior to officially moving to DK. I wonder if the apartment was bought back then?
It could also have been bought when Frederik worked at the Danish embassy. But that was some ten years before Mary.
I imagine that even a very small apartment in Paris was a good investment.

I read about the apartment in Paris years and years ago. Can't remember where or when.
Seems there are many things that the Danish press doesn't know or can't remember...

Selective memory is a bliss...

So what is more appropriate that posting this non-story:
https://www.bt.dk/royale/kronprinspa...udlejningssite

It's about the house in Verbier owned by M&F. BT has found a reference to it on another site, that apparently just links to houses that can be rented (and obviously hasn't been updated) but BT angles the story as M&F may still being renting out the place even though it is no longer for rent by the agency. Like I said a non-story.

However, of interest to us, are the photos in the article showing the interior of the house, and as these are pictures M&F have okayed themselves I see no problems in posting them here:

So here is a bedroom. Whether it's the one M&F sleeps in I don't know:

Interesting. It seems that Paris is a favourite amongst the DRF with Joachim and Marie now being based there (I know that's because Joachim was posted there) - I don't blame them. Paris is my favourite city; too.

Yes. And hardly surprising.

They can vanish in the crowd.
Both Joachim and Frederik are fluent in French and know French culture, from the inside and they have relatives there, if not in Paris then certainly in France.

I would say it is the favorite city among European royalty.
Several members of the Grand Ducal Family in Luxembourg live in Paris and the Grand Dukes have a home there.
Joachim and Marie from Denmark and their children currently reside there.
Farah Diba also lives in Paris.
I think that some members of the Monaco Royal Family also live in Paris.

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.
