Some of the Berleburgs were present at the changing of guards at noon today:

BB this week wrote that Prince Gustav and Carina Axelsson had visited Gråsten, but left. Presumably their visit was while M&F were there as well.

- There is no rush in posting anything from the magazine edition of BB this week, as there are hardly any news at all!
Only a behind the scenes article which I will deal with, when the temperatures here in DK become tolerable! These days we are living inside the freezer to avoid a heatstroke!

Lovely to see Princesses Benedikte and Alexandra with her husband and daughter joining the queen for the summer holiday photo shoot at the Gråsten Palace.

It's her son Richard, not her husband - she is divorced. I wouldn't be surprised if Alexandra's boyfriend is also at Grasten as he is Danish and a friend of the royal family.

When the Queen is in the Grasten the Dannebrog usually is in the harbor of Sonderborg.
The Dannebrog under the moon!

I've always thought the Dannebrog is a beautiful ship. Thanks for the lovely photo. It must be a real pleasure to sail on her.
And what a great idea it is to sail around the islands of Denmark in summer to visit the remote towns. Just a wonderful way of doing things.

Yes, she is beautiful.
And a little dream of mine would be to send her on an extended tour of the Pacific. But that won't be possible until M&F become the regent couple.

Imagine Dannebrog sailing under Sydney Harbor Bridge. Under the Golden Bridge. Past the Arizona Memorial. Into Vancouver.
Being moored in Tokyo Bay and off Singapore. Off the Galapagos.
Sailing into the bays and fjords of South Island in New Zealand.
And being designed to sail in the Arctic, she can even sail to the shore of Antarctica.

It will be expensive, but no more expensive than having two warships patrolling the coast of Somalia for six months. And that is done routinely.

I didn't know there was a church at Graasten! Has any significant royal event baptism, wedding, etc ever taken place there?!

I really like your itinerary. She would look lovely in all those places especially with magical sunsets and her lights on.
It must be a pleasure to be a sailor on board.

In 1998 Princess Alexandra zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg married Count Jefferson of Pfeil and Klein-Ellguth in the Castle Church.

Every Friday during the Queen's stay at Grasten Castle, the changing of the guard ends with a small concert. Princess Benedikte was also there.

The above picture of Isabella looking at her Dad is just beautiful. What a loving family.

I am always so impressed how loving and caring this family is when out in public and I honestly believe they are the same at home behind closed doors. Mary and Frederik seems like such strong yet loving parents who know just where the children are headed in life and what they need to do. I love the picture of Mary with her arm around Isabella, and my she is almost as tall as her mother....good grief where did time go here.......

I agree about this family. Mary (and Fred) have done an outstanding job of raising very grounded children in the face of the cameras. I wish people would take note of how tactile this family is in front of the cameras, because there is another royal family (hint: starts with an Sp ) that gets dinged for touching. If ever children need reassurance it is before that bank of gawking cameras and staring crowds (no matter how well meaning). It is just an abnormal situation for children and the more they feel in the cocoon of the familial embrace (and touching helps maintain that safety) the more buoyed the child's spirit can be. Just the way I see it.

There are different ways of being tactile This one comes off as at ease and loving; the Sp-version at times comes off as controlling (and not always age-appropriate).
