Such beautiful children, each with their own unique personalities, I really love how casual the family is and how loving they are to each other but I have to second Wartenberg7 posting, Prince Vincent is just the cutest little guy!!

There could be loads of reasons why they didn't show up. Anything from a delayed flight (The weather was bad, remember) to a hotel booking that couldn't be changed.
If they don't show up next year, then we can talk about a changing pattern.
Only their own photocall and the Gråsten photocall are two different things and can't really be compared. Gråsten is the main photocall and also one of very few events a year that the close (QMII's "own" family) royal family is expected to be present for. Their own is secondary to Gråsten and often, I believe, done because Nikolai and Felix can't always be at Gråsten for the photocall.

I actually don't think it's unreasonable to question Joachim and Marie's absence – especially not when the cause of absence hasn't been revealed. As I mentioned before, this is one of arguably very few scheduled events they're expected to attend every year, surely working your holiday around that isn't difficult? And that goes for Mary and Frederik as well – I also think them missing out on it some years ago was ridiculous.

I agree while Nicolai and Felix are still young that their parents' custody arrangements/schedules should be taken into consideration. IMO it would be strange if the they were not present, but their younger siblings were.

As Muhler kindly pointed out to me - have you noticed how Josephine at 0:10 into the video with dad and mom in the hands goes and whistles? She's such a funny sweet little girl. And F&M at 0.23.

Also a pleasant picture of Bella and daddy:

And adorable Vincent here:

Last night Queen Margrethe held a reception at Gråsten Palace. Prince Henrik and Princess Benedikte participated. But not Frederik and Mary which makes me think that the Crown Prince family now have driven home to Copenhagen after three summer weeks in Gråsten.

Here a gallery from the reception: (Notice the brilliant Danish summer weather )
Omegnsreception på Gråsten Slot - Kongehuset

Here's the guest list:
Gæsteliste ved omegnsreception på Gråsten Slot - Kongehuset

Lots of pictures from this lovely relaxed family photo session on Facebook. I came across this comment from a young man:

"As a guard for the Crown Prince family when they are at Fredensborg, I see them often. They are truly, as it is said, incredibly likeable and completely down to earth. And the children are seen together with their parents all the time. I am proud of Her Majesty the Queen and the Crown Prince couple!"

It's a pity that the CP couple didn't attend the reception, didn't they use to attend in the past years?

In the calendar it was listed from the beginning as only the royal couple and Benedikte...Im not sure if im confusing it with other summer receptions, but in 2012 the CP couple did not attend either

It's difficult to know how many receptions they have attended over the years.

A few years ago (can't remember which year) there were two receptions held at Gråsten and F&M attended both of them. They were not mentioned in the calendar entry and there were no photos.

A updated 25 pictures gallery including some lovely pictures we haven't seen before

***

While Margrethe and Henrik will stay at Gråsten some weeks yet, the magazines tell Frederik and Mary and children now have left Gråsten:

Last Sunday they packed the car, the children and Ziggy and drove back home to Copenhagen after more than 3 lovely weeks in Gråsten. Tomorrow it's back to work/or a break in the holdiday for Frederik when he travels on a (4 days) business promotion visit/IOC meetings in Malaysia.

I am sure everyone had a great time, even little Josephine after she got over the pain of breaking her arm. So many kids to play with. Hamish's children and Peter Heerings girls and then cousin Prss Alexandra's boy and girl. Trips to Danfoss Science park and Legoland and the Dybol museum and bike riding and horse riding. They certainly have had lots to do. I remember our family get togethers with cousins to run around with, many moons ago. Always had a great time, and I'm sure M&Fs family did too.

A delightful 3 minutes long video from the family photo session from BB

Prins Christian og prins Vincent hyggede sig under sommerfotograferingen på Gråsten Slot | billedbladet.dk

Many cute details. Notice again a whistling Josephine. Vincent and Christian already have a good eye for football. We again hear Frederik and Mary (like all other Danish parents) call their children the fondly nickname "Skat" (= treasure (honey) ) When Vincent is on his way into the wet bush after the dog Frederik says: Don't go in there Skat, you will become totally wet Skat".

Margrethe says at one point: "A true lovely Danish summer day" which we hear especially Bella laugh of. For that day it was pouring rain from morning to night. Typically Danish summer weather.

We also see Frederik fondly gets his back cuddled by his wife on the way home while Christian and Vincent provides plenty of exercise and jog for dogs.

Enjoy.

I don't know if these have been posted before but the Crown Princely Family were spotted at Grasten today with some other children. It looks as if they went to a public playground:

Thanks, HereditaryPrincess.

Isn't that Hamish and his wife and at least one child?
Will this be a summer or a winter holiday for Australians, I wonder...

The photos must be on the day of the ring rider procession, because I see M&F and children look at riders at the road going along the wall next to the part of the park where the photo shoot took place.
I guess the various riders and clubs were arriving or going away. Some of the clubs would have been very local and as such would only have had to ride a few kilometers at the most.


My pleasure, ladies.
I shall not torment you any further. - For now...

You'll find BB's coverage of the official photo shoot in this folder: https://app.box.com/s/h5f5vzkfm1goekkqzdfjidlirc94tu09

Some trivia:
At the photo shoot Josephine wore a Poppy Rose dress.
Vincent wore a shirt by Phill Carrera.
Isabella wore a dress by Little Remix.
Mary's blouse was from Zara.
Her necklace is from Ethiopia.
Her wristband, or whatever it's called, is by Anni Lu.

Oh, I didn't see the thread but I've seen the photos of the family riding on horseback elsewhere. I'm often impressed at how fast this forum is regarding updates.

Margrethe get some serious hate for having a smoke, I always find these DM articles and comments ridiculous, and I feel a bit sorry for the poor royals people A poor role model and bad behavior or not, I'm sure her family survived

I am going to say it. An elderly woman holding a cigarette while holding her grandsons hand or dressed up in ball gowns and jewels is jarring and the opposite of classy. But it is her health.

Surely she could have waited till she was on her own. Such a disgusting habit and such a bad example to her grandchildren.
