It's been lovely seeing the old photos and videos that the DRF have been posting from Grasten. Getting me in the mood for the upcoming photoshoot!

It is confirmed M&F are at Gråsten: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...ren-i-graasten

According to other reliable sources, I have learned they arrived Wednesday, but obviously have been left alone, not only by the locals but also the press.

BB will send live from the Ringriding procession Sunday. They will air from 11.50.
I guess the coverage will last at least half an hour. It takes time for the procession consisting of riders from various clubs and organizations to pass.
Many will of course present flowers. Both to Mary of course, but as we have learned Josephine is certainly not unwilling to receive flowers!
Of course Bella, being a girl, is also guaranteed to get a bouquet or two.

- And who knows, as a keen rider, Isabella may even take part in the procession?
If not this year, then in a few years.

Oh la! I am in love with the Queen! Gotta love her with that rain coat!

P.S. Anyone know what happened with the horse about 3:35 sec in? What was that?

Yes, horses sometimes have a will of their own.
The girl is obviously not that experienced a rider, hence why the horse was led. Because holding a bouquet in one hand and controlling a horse with the other requires some experience and if the girl on top of that is a little nervous and there are people around, the horse can be a little jumpy - or become interested in eating the bouquets...

The weather forecast for tomorrow says warm, dry and sunny.

I love how attentive Frederick is on chair duty, making sure that it’s right behind his mother no matter where she moves (and, it seems, at one point reminding her to take a little break and sit down).

And we finally have some news, albeit no pics, from Gråsten about M&F and the children.

https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...dag-i-graasten

A few hundred meters from Gråsten Manor there is a riding school that the family visit very often when they are in the area.
And they have indeed been seen several times there over the past few days.
Isabella especially has been noticed showing great interest in preparations for the ring-riders (Yes, I know it sounds like something from the Lord of the Rings).
The annual ring-riding season culminates these days with processions and ring-riding events all over Southern Jutland, with the big local procession taking place Sunday.
But there has also been an event Saturday with a procession through Gråsten town.

Perhaps Isabella will one day take part in a ring-rider event? The locals would love her for it! But it takes a lot of practice!
Ring-riding is basically lancer-training. Carrying a short and light lance in your hand you approach the ring, that is suspended from a line and about the size of a medium sized coin, at a trot and attempt to skewer the ring.
Much easier said than done!

And here is a short video showing how it's done, even though she's riding way too slow for a competition.

(..)

Also loving Josephine's top, I want one for myself. Not sure why Isabella is wearing sneakers with a midi skirt though...

----------------------

Isabella obviously knows some of the younger riders, maybe they took riding lessons together?

BB is sending live now: [url]https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige/danmark/vi-sender-live-kl1150-naar-kronprinsfamiliens-modtager-graastens-ringrideroptog

There are running commentaries and Q&A on BB's Facebook page.

-----------------

It's not only the Dutch girls who have grown up. So has Bella!

---------------

Grace, the dog, is busy saying hello to the onlooker. And clearly loving the attention.

------------------

300 riders, some on bicycles are on the way.

------------------

Having passed M&F the riders will proceed to a local square for the ring-rider competitions.

-----------------

Vincent has grown up!

Mary gave him some flowers and he looked at them: What am I supposed to do with that?!? And passed them on to a staff member.

Grace was on a large detour! All the way up to the end of the driveway. But now she's back.

--------------------

No more riders, but the locals will pass by to say hi.

---------------------

Yes, Isabella know many of them from the local riding school,

That's it.

I'll leave the floor to our newsdiggers to find and post photos.

And here is the entire BB coverage, lasting half an hour: https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...dtog-graastens

Thanks Muhler.
The photo that Billed Bladet has on front is from last year I think, we can see how much the children have changed. Lovely family. The children are always happy when we see them, Isabella is a beautiful girl.

So nice to see them all again. The kids are growing like weeds! Isabella is getting so tall and the twins are not so tiny anymore either.

Beautiful photos from a lovely event. The family seems to enjoy it to the fullest, and a surprise appearance from Grace.

Wonderful galleries and videos

And yes, no beard but just as handsome as always Frederik.

Here is a 32 pic gallery from jv.dk: https://www.jv.dk/soenderborg/Kronpr...rtikel/2627934

These pics are particularly delightful: https://images.jv.dk/50/1650650_1280_854_0_0_0_0_2.jpg
Isabella with a local friend.

A nice intimate photo of M&F.

https://images.jv.dk/65/1650665_1280_854_0_0_0_0_2.jpg
I'll estimate Bella's height o around 160-165 cm = 5'3''-5'5''
Pretty tall for her age!

https://images.jv.dk/68/1650668_1280_854_0_0_0_0_2.jpg
Presumably a local friend of the family?

Grace was actually gone for several minutes, while she went to the end of the driveway to the manor. A couple of hundred meters away, before deciding to return to her family. But there were so many people willing to pad her and being a polite dog she obliged.

I think Ulrik Ulriksen said something about the girl becoming very emotional and being comforted by Mary. I thought she looked like she was in tears.
