He could earn a living as a narrator, because his Danish is very clear and well-pronounced.
Because good narrators sure don't hang on trees!
And it's a problem for those of us, who are having problems hearing. Especially voices.

Thanks Polyesco for the photos and videos! They both look great. And can Frederik look more handsome in uniform! I saw on one of the photo websites that in a few of the photos it looks like he becomes very emotional at one point.

Another article and video from today's events

Indeed.
That was at the point where the relatives of those who have died, laid flowers at the memorial.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #36, 2021.
Written By Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know M&F represented the DRF on the annual Flag Day, which started at Kastellet in Copenhagen. Kastellet = the citadel is a part of the fortifications in and around Copenhagen. Today it's a military HQ.
Here they laid down a wreath at the memorial for those who have taken part in missions abroad since 1948, and on that monument are inscribed the names of those who have died while on these missions. (*)
Frederik, wearing the full dress uniform of rear admiral, and Mary paid they respect with a brief moment of contemplation.
After which a number of speeches and what is often considered a third national anthem (by H C Andersen) "In Denmark I am Born" was sung. (**)
Then relatives of some of those whose names are on the moment got up and laid flowers and wreaths themselves at the monument. And it was here both Frederik and Mary had to wipe away a tear.

Later they attended a memorial service in Holmens Kirke = the Naval Church, where also a number of relatives took part.

The day ended at Christiansborg Square, in front of the Parliament with a parade with veterans, both soldiers, police officers, Civil Defense personnel, Home Guardsmen and others took part.

(*) There is no distinction as to how they died, be that enemy action, accidents or suicide. The result is the same for themselves and their loved ones; they died.

(**) There are two official Danish anthems. The national anthem and the royal anthem.
To that there are an additional three songs I'd say sometimes serve as anthems depending on the situation.
This one by H C Andersen, rhymes better and has a better lyric than the national anthem. It is also more solemn while the official national anthem is more allround.
To that there are two more, one being called In a Land Without/Devoid of High Mountains which is more contemplative.
