I know many of you like to get a full translation when Frederik, Mary and their children speak. Here comes one:


Crown Prince Frederik:
Dear everyone.
The world looks completely different today than it did just weeks ago.
We all miss our normal everyday lives.

Crown-Princess Mary:
Now it is Friday afternoon and we have come out to get some fresh air and move our bodies. It is the second week of home schooling and it has required some restructuring for both the children and parents.

(Mary says it with a smile in her voice because ALL parents, during this time, feels it like a certain change suddenly to have to home school all your children)

The kids play soccer in the background.

Frederik and Mary call on the children.

Crown-Princess Mary:
We talk a little bit about the everyday life...

Crown Prince Frederik:
A different everyday life...

Crown-Princess Mary:
What do you miss most?

Princess Isabella dots Christian in the side.

Prince Christian:
I miss seeing my friends and having a slightly more varied everyday life, where there is like a slightly longer period where you can also be allowed to practice sports and be a little more active.
How about you, Bella?

Princess Isabella:
There are of course your friends you miss, but I actually think it’s a lot of fun with home schooling.

Crown Prince Frederik:
What about you, Vincent?

Prince Vincent:
I think that home schooling is very boring.

The family can't help but laugh.
(Prince Vincent really is the honestest in that family )

Crown Prince Frederik:
And what about you, Josephine?

Princess Josephine:
I FaceTime with all my friends right here.

Crown Princess Mary to Josephine:
And that's nice?

Princess Josephine:
Yes.

Here after the Crown Prince family sent a heartfelt thank you to all those who work hard for Denmark to get through the corona crisis.

Crown Prince Frederik:
We would like to thank all those who work hard so that we can all get through this difficult time.

Crown Princess Mary:
Those of you who are on the front line, those of you who treat, care and help those who need it.

Crown Prince Frederik:
Those of you who hold together the community and the most important functions. You make a vital effort. Thank you very much for that.

The entire Crown Prince family in chorus:
Take care of yourself and take care of each other.

The way Christian asked Isabella for her opinion was so cute! He seems to have quite a mature personality. He is growing into a lovely young man.
Props to Vincent for honesty!

Mang tak Roskilde and I agree with your post no 450.
It is really easy to love this down to earth family.

And we must also thank all the food producers for continuing the supply to shops while we self isolate.

This is how it should be done.
Other RFs take note.

I think when it comes to being "lovely", no kid will ever beat Vincent! One can already sense that in may be 4 or 5 years many danish girls will have a crush on him!

M&F and children's greeting to the Danes and especially the healthcare workers have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...i-er-saa-soede

- As you will notice BB has changed and modernized their layout.
But nothing in English.

However, that could change, if enough of you mail them and request at least a section in English covering the DRF.
Now that the journalists have less to do, the magazine may be more inclined to do at least a trial run in English.
It is something I know quite a few Australians have wished for some time, so why not try it?

Here is BB's contact section:

Our Prime Minister has just held a press conference:

If the Danish figures continue to look good the Danish kindergartens and the 0.-5. grade (classes) in schools will open on 15. April.
6.-9. grade (classes) in our schools will continue to be closed and the pupils will continue homeschooling until at least 10. May.

So that means if the Danish figures continue to look fine:
Then Vincent and Josephine will start school on 15. April.
Christian and Isabella must continue with home schooling until at least 10. May.

Everything else in Denmark (except workers with critical functions) remains closed until 10. May.

We must gather a maximum of 10 people.

No major meetings of people are allowed until the end of August.

* I’m not sure we will see much to the Queen and Crown Prince couple officially as we are not allowed to gather more than 10 people together in public until at least 10. May.

It must really raise the spirits of the Danes to know there is light at the end of the tunnel with an organised beginning to (hopefully) return to normal.

You are absolutely right, nothing like a date to galvanise one's spirits in these trying times.

So happy for my Danish friends, I pray that this downward trend continues and things start to look upward. Children can start to enjoy school, I know mine are so ready to return... but they probably wont this school year.

Thanks for the update Roskilde. It still does seem a bit strange that Josephine and Vincent's age group can attend school but the older children are still obliged to be homeschooled. I guess Denmark is gradually easing everyone back into normal life? They seem to have had pretty efficient lockdown measures as I heard the cases were more contained in Denmark so I guess the government deemed it safe enough.

I assume it would be because younger children need someone to look after them 24/7 and in my experience, its harder to teach younger children online etc, whereas older children can be more self sufficient at home, look after themselves a bit and engage better online.

And not least because the younger ones are going stir-crazy (and so are their parents!)
As long as the teenagers have their phones, they can cope.
I know, I'm looking at one, happily absorbed with her phone right now.

I wonder whether it also I because of health reasons. Children seem least affected by the virus, so that's probably why some countries will first decide to have children up to the age of 12 return to school before they also have their teenagers return to school.

Also, before parents can return to work daycares, kindergartens and primary schools have to open. You can hardly leave a 5-year-old alone at home while you go to work.
+it's better if a smaller number of children starts at first and then gradually adding others
