Strictly speaking it's also against the law to take photos of the family and publish these photos outside the palace grounds. As that is a breach of their privacy - as long of course they are not performing an official function. But the DRF usually tolerate it, especially if the photographers stand in the open, say: Hi, we are from XX, do you mind if we take a few snaps?

thank you, i tough anniversary photos of family. goodbye.

What is important is that they spend time at each residence at least once a year.

Okay, Amalienborg will be their home on a day to day basis and their workplace, as well as winter residence. So that's occupied most of the year.
Then they could very well use Fredensborg (or more correctly Kancellihuset) and Trend as a weekend retreat.
That leaves Gråsten, Marselisborg, Cayz and Fredensborg and to some extent at least Trend for the holidays. Not to mention a private cruise aboard Dannebrog - after all the crew needs practice.

The schools are off for six weeks during the summer. Before and after that they are unlikely to go abroad or leave the area around Copenhagen. Although M&F themselves are expected to go on two summer cruises aboard Dannebrog.
That means six weeks for a trip aboard and/or divided between Trend, Cayz, Marselisborg, Dannebrog and Gråsten.
IMO they could spend two weeks at each place of their choice. The question is which ones, because it would simply be too stressful IMO to go to more than three places max.
I leave out Fredensborg, because they may very well use Fredensborg as their summer residence because that still enables the children to go to school/high school.

Then there is Easter, the winter holiday in week 7 and the autumn holiday in week 42, as well as Christmas.
Okay, I think we can leave out the winter holiday as they are usually in Switzerland at this time of year.
So that leaves Christmas, Easter and week 42, which they will spend where?

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

That's the reasoning. Let's now go to the bottom line:

So dear fellow TRF'ers. How would you divide the time M&F should spend in their various residences?
You have:
Fredensborg.
Marselisborg.
Trend.
Cayz.
Gråsten.
Abroad on a private holiday.
A private cruise aboard Dannebrog.

The times are:
Easter.
Christmas. i.e. weeks 51 & 52.
Week 42/the autumn holiday.
Six weeks of summer holiday.

You may use this little guide as a help: https://app.box.com/s/5pc2zsdggt19264bqvfd



Do they need to use both Marselisborg and Trend. King Frederik IX. and Queen Ingrid did not use Marselsborg much and preferred Trend. Marselisborg was then given to Margrethe when she married. Margrethe however did not use Trend. So perhaps one of them will given to Christian when he marries.

They don't need to but I can personally imagine they might wanna continue QMII's sort-of tradition of celebrating Christmas at Marselisborg. Frederik is also quite fond of Marselisborg since he lived there when he studied in Aarhus, so although it's mainly occupied by QMII and I can't envision them spending quite as much time there as QMII does now, I don't get the feeling it's a place M&F – or at least Frederik – associate with obligation as much as with a genuine joy to be back in Aarhus. But I also don't think it's at all unlikely that one or more of the children might opt to do like Frederik and study in Aarhus.

They will certainly have to use Marselisborg, otherwise the locals will be miffed!
There were serious talks about Aarhus municipality buying back the place, during the reign of Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid because they weren't there often enough.
They may only use it once a year, say Easter. But they'll have to go there.
And when their children will attend a university, it's very likely IMO that at least one of them will study in Aarhus and as such live at Marselisborg.

As for Trend. I cannot imagine they will stop going there. It's clearly a place they are very fond of and they tend to go there often, Early Easter (which in DK de facto lasts more than a week. From Friday afternoon, then the full week before Easter and ending Tuesday morning after Easter, because Monday is a bank holiday.) and week 42. And also up to New Year it seems.

They can't give up Gråsten either.
While Joachim lived at Schackenborg they could perhaps get away with not going there every year, but that's out of the question now.

Agree.

But somehow I don't think they'll feel quite at home at Marselisborg as it is now...
QMII has described it as "an awful big house with awful little room", somehow the architect didn't consider that royals might have children!
And anyone who has seen the inside of Marselisborg will know that it's very much a place decorated by QMII with her fondness of very vivid colors and just as vivid patterns. Groovy...
I don't think I could live there without having psychedelic nightmares.

I liked this year’s photo shoot. All the children are really growing up but Isabella, in particular, has matured. She looks so tall! Christian, too - I think he’ll tower over both Frederik and Mary.

The Crown Prince family's 1 year old Border Collie, Grace, has proven to be just as folksy and popular as her owners. During the Crown Prince family's summer photo session she stole the show as she walked the whole way back and forth to greet the city's citizens.

During yesterday's Ringrideroptog in Gråsten a younger participant became a bit overwhelmed, which Crown Princess Mary sensed. After a warm hug and sweet words, it was a happy girl who again went on to the Ringrideroptog.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #29, 2018.
Written by our man on the spot, Ulrik Ulriksen.

Some 300 riders and bands paraded past M&F and their children outside Gråsten.

It was the four girls of the family who got most attention, Mary, Bella, Josephine and Grace. - The boys remained in the background.

Both Josephine and Bella ride at the nearby riding school and as such they knew quite a few of the girls in the procession.
At some point a girl approached the family (red skirt, striped t-shirt), but she got overwhelmed and began to cry. So Mary had to comfort her and gave her a hug, while Josephine and Bella offered positive vibrations.
Before the procession started three little girls were noticed among the onlookers, they were standing clutching flowers in their hands, eager to present them to Isabella. After a little nudging she went over and accepted the flowers, to the general delight of the locals.

Our reporter noticed a few details:
M&F returned back to Gråsten on bicycle about an hour before the show started.

Bella went over to the riding school, while they were preparing for the procession.

It was Josephine who received (or accepted) the majority of the flowers.

It delighted Vincent when he and his siblings each got a big lollipop by a rider.

Frederik laughed when he was presented with a liquorice pipe. Which he put in his pocket. Such a thing: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...e_On_White.jpg

The horse Tarzan got a particular warm greeting by Mary. She know the horse (and probably rides it) from the riding school.

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

In the mean time J&M are on holiday abroad somewhere. (My guess is France.)

Here are the scans for this week: https://app.box.com/s/gq0ay1zqhtfierrqdanz4ca1wzb74yzc

And from last week, but there really isn't much happening DRF-wise these weeks! https://app.box.com/s/ecyas2fhffo1eg4mm0qu2632jmcrxbcl

And we have a local news report from QMII arriving at Gråsten. And being welcomed there, before driving into the palace itself.
https://www.jv.dk/soenderborg/Se-bil...rtikel/2628851

There is a 23 pic gallery.
But the article is more about the onlookers.
One of them is Maria Vasileva with her children, from Russia. Who came to DK a month ago, because her husband has found work in Gråsten.
She said: "We are here to see the Queen, we've never seen her before."

Another is Elin Johannsen, who actually usually receive QMII at Gråsten palace along with the staff there.
"I have been a flower-decorator at the palace for 31 years, but I was laid off on 1st April. So it's the first time I receive the Queen here on the square. Without the DRF there was no Gråsten."
She is accompanied by Olivia Spokauskiene from Lithuania, and her two children. Olivia Spokauskiene was an exchange student who lived at the Johannsen home years back.
"It's exciting to see the Queen, because we have no queen back home."

When the mayor delivers his speech, someone among the crowd shouts: "Yahoo!" very loud!

Another among the crowd is Yue Sun from China, who has lived for ten years in the nearby town of Sønderborg. (No doubt working at Danfoss) He has his parents visiting for the first time.
"I've seen the Queen on TV, but I've never had the opportunity to see her in real life. When we heard that the Queen of Denmark would come here, then there was a chance to see her. Here it's possible to get close to Queen, in contrast to the Chinese leaders who are distant from us."

The experience moved the family and Yue Sun added:
"It was fantastic and I was very moved. The Queen has lost her husband, but she smiled ad looked healthy and well. I wish her a good life. It was very emotional for me, so I almost cried."

Lovely to see the Queen, she looks lovely.

Frederik and Mary riding their bikes at Grasten, probably to or from riding their horses.

That's the first such photo I have seen of them this summer.

It's nice to see that people leave them alone. - Even though I also do like to see them out and about like this.

You're absolutely right. Last year they let the horse parade event serve as the photocall and I was not pleased with that. In 2016 the photocall was not in the garden, rather the DRF stood in one of the doorways of the palace and then came back out for what I guess was a changing of the guard. While not a garden photocall, that set up was totally OK with me.

I would also like to see a garden photocall again because the sceneries are the best. But I guess it would only happen when J&M and the SWBs come to stay at Grasten, and it's getting less likely when the children have all grown up.

I wouldn't mind if only Daisy and the CP family participate though...
