Yes, it's a tradition you don't see as often anymore, is started from the evening on 4th May 1946.
And many still put lights in their windows.

I think it is the small gestures like these that make the meaning of a tradition more poignant. What a tough time the people of Europe suffered throughout the second world war. Liberation and the ending of a nightmare must have felt like a huge relief. And tough economic times continued for many years.

The lights are lit to mark the Danish liberation from the German occupation in 1945.

The announcement of the German surrender came on the evening of May 4, but finally came into force the day after 8:00."

"Tomorrow night at 20:00 we have planned to go to the theater, but in a slightly different way than we usually do. ⁣

The Royal Theater has started a good initiative where it is possible to experience setups from home, now that theaters must keep closed for the time being. Tomorrow night you can see, among other things, the performance The College Songbook online - a piece we unfortunately did not get to experience live.⁣

Now we look forward to seeing the performance at home from the couch. We hope more people want to see us? ⁣

Yes, as I understand it the actors interact online from their homes or some other place with considerable distance between the performers.

It does require a lot more acting skills than usual, because you don't get the usual input and ques from your fellow actors. You have to act up against a monitor.

----

From Monday the older classes at school can begin to return, but with considerable precautions that varies from school to school and municipality to municipality.
Some schools plane to introduce shift-schooling. Half a class go to school one day, while the other half are online at home, and then change the next day.
That includes Christian and Isabella.

Wonderful post from the Crown Prince Couple.
Who has a Crown Prince couple like us?
So cozy, homely and down to earth a photo

I hope Frederik and Mary enjoyed the performance together home on the couch with their feet up - like so many other Danes.

The two pictures characterize the Danish Crown Prince couple well. They really master the balance between being royal and folksy.

Need I say that the DRF’s booms with very positive comments?

A few of them:

'I really love the Crown Prince couple. We are so lucky to have such fantastic examples in Denmark. There is plenty of knowledge and intelligence, but also room for great emotions, good humor and down to earth experiences shared with us. So wonderful.'

'Absolutely great way to communicate. You understand to fulfill your roles and also in a modern way.’

‘The Crown Prince couple have the love and respect of the people’

‘The Crown Prince couple really is the main reason we have the world's best and coolest royal family. They give the Danish Royal House something very special.
I’m so fond of Frederik and Mary. Thank you for always supporting Danish cultural experiences.’

'Great that you share such ordinary everyday pictures'

'Love that there are wires and mess behind the television and that it is not a 70 inch television. The best Crown Prince Couple in the world. You can fell them as human beings'

A happy Mothers Day to Crown Princess Mary and all other mothers in the world.

I found this lovely collage of Mary with her children on the occasion of Mothers Day today:

Thats a great collage with lots of lovely photos. This family have always been very close and it shows in these photos.
The one photo I expected to be there, which is my favourite, is one of Prince Christian when he was very young at Verbier holding his mothers face and almost nose to nose with her in the cutest most charming way. It is just a heartwarming photo.

Checked my archive. That must have been back in 2007, 08 or 09.

Anyway, here we have Christian and two mothers, cracking up because Christian is marching.

Aww I remember that photo so well, Tarlita. Christian has always, from very young, been very fond of his mother. I’ve searched and searched on Google, but without luck. If I remember correctly, it was a photographer from Billedbladet who took the photo, so they probably have exclusive rights to the photo and it’s probably why it’s not easy to find online. But it is such a good photo, simple pure love of a child and mother.

I am generally touched to see how all four of Frederik’s and Mary's children always show their love and how fond they are of their parents, even in public. It is a real pleasure to see. They indeed seem like a very close family.

It was a huge benefit to the Royal Theater that M&F chose to tell and show how they enjoyed an online performance.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/vildt-boom-...erke-en-effekt

In fact the number of viewers who tuned into the free performance went up big time that evening!!
Altogether some 4.000 watched the theater performance. That translates to 40 times the usual number!

The theater was contacted personally by M&F who told they intended to promote the performance - something that has delighted the Royal Theater.

- There are still restrictions on the max number of people who can gather in public and as such also severe restrictions on cultural venues like the Royal Theater.
From a principle of better safe than sorry, the Parliament has decided to give cultural institutions and businesses lower priority in regards to reopening the society. After all in a theater many people sit for a long time fairly close together. Even when sitting in alternate chairs.

Thanks Polyesco, Yes that is the one! A gorgeous sweet moment captured for all time. I just looked up my scrap book and it was the end of March 2010. They were on holidays with Peter and Caroline Heering. After that photo Christian put his arms around mum for a hug.
I swear even princes are born with that extra little dollop of Charm.

Happy 16th Wedding Anniversary to Frederik & Mary today

Is it really 16 years ago that a utterly happy Frederik with tears in his eyes, saw his radiant Australian bride walk down the aisle accompanied by her Scottish father in kilt.

I loved how nervous and genuine both Frederik and Mary were. They were shy and young, and their love shone so brightly that I haven't experienced it the same way in the royal world since. Frederik & Mary won people's hearts during that ‘wedding of emotions.’
A day I think all Danes can clearly remember. History of Denmark.

Here is the video of the beautiful bride Mary arriving with her father and Frederik struggling not to cry ... right until he saw Mary ... then he sniffed and looked like a schoolboy in love. Getting chills every time I see that arrival:
https://youtu.be/h_yLKhKIyS0

( Do yourself the flavour to read the comments, they make one proud as a Dane)

And their wedding waltz.
Again both so lovely shy and akward, but so in love, that you online can smile:
https://youtu.be/yVQarqT61ss

Enjoy!

CP Mary about the education as posted a picture for all the four children going to school:


"Yesterday our two oldest children started school, so now we are happy that all four children are back in school. I think they have been good at dealing with what has been a very different everyday life. But they are happy to return to all that they have missed: the teaching, their peers, the teachers, the neighborhoods - in short, a school life that provides the structure of everyday life that children have found they appreciate. ⁣

But not all children in the world are so lucky. I have read that UNESCO estimates that school closures around the world due to the Corona crisis are affecting education for over 70 per cent. of all the students of the world. It has a great impact on the world's children, especially girls and especially in developing countries"
