It is a pity we don't have a closeup of the tie. Does Frederik always wear blue suits? The colour suits him btw. I like this room, it always looks cosy, intimate and relaxed for visitors.

It's a fine tie, but the closer you look at it, the more it clashes with Mary's dress.

Is this done by Frederik and Mary because it is deemed sufficiently safe to meet this many people for Frederik and Mary but not for the much older Margrethe?

I would say even pre covid, Frederik and Mary were taking over more and more of these duties. Plus if I recall, both have made semi recent visits to these countries as well.

The Baltic countries is more Crown Prince Frederik's thing, area.

Frederik has a masters degree in political science and his thesis was on foreign policy in the Baltic countries, which he visited several times during his studies.

He has attended events like the Baltic Development Forums, hosted Baltic Foreign Ministers on the 20th anniversary of the Baltic countries' restoration of autonomy and so on.

With every possible respect for the town of Haslev and the good citizens there, all 12.000 of them, what are M&F doing there? At a 150 years town anniversary?!?
- That's the equivalent to throwing a big party to celebrate your 6th wedding anniversary.

Okay, it's a great opportunity to meet ordinary Danes in a festive setting, but apart from that I don't really get it.

It's pretty cold today, so I hope M&F stayed warm.

Great photos! They seems like they had a wonderful time and looked in great spirits as well! I believe I read the Minister of Transport (?) also attended. Maybe there is an underlying reason for this visit other than unveiling a plaque and looking at the beautiful view from atop that tower. Just glad to see a fun joint event for them.

Per the article (and Google translate) Haslev was last year named Denmark's Most Beautiful Station City by Historic Houses. The town is looking forward to the electrification of the railway being completed soon. Also, the Minister of Transport mentioned in his speech that Haslev is a hub for the railway and completion of the aforementioned electrification in December 2022. It also seems one of the City Council members is an old soldier buddy of Frederik's. Sounds like Frederik was his squad leader. The man Frederik is shaking hands with in the photo, and they hug in a later photo: https://scontent-hel3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...10&oe=618A5F31

Also, I love that on that tower bride (which is pretty cool tbh) there is a plaque pointing towards where Amalienborg is and has two flags there. You can see it in a few of the photos posted. The Forest Tower has been nominated for the EU Architecture Prize, the Mies van der Rohe Prize, in 2022.

Seems the Mayor said in his speech that he was happy to have the CP Couple present for the 150th anniversary, just as the heirs were present in 1970 (CPss Margrethe and PH at the time) when the town celebrated it's 100th anniversary

Hmm.

In 1870 the railway-network in DK was well established and being widened to cover pretty much any town worth mentioning, so that was the birth of Haslev.
Hence the presence of the Minister of Transport.

I think this was a "meet the people" event, with the added bonus of putting some focus on the tower. (A similar tower in Southern Jutland has been a tremendous success. These towers seems to be a success pretty much everywhere in the world, is my impression.)
It might have helped that a former army-buddy of Frederik happens to be a member of the town council, who knows...

Anyway, such a fairly informal event is clearly something Frederik enjoys and you can tell.

I agree with the "meet the people" aspect of the event. Shaking hands with the people in the crowd, etc. Basically, doing one of the tings Mary and Frederik do best.

Per the videos I've seen, the people were pretty excited to see Mary and Frederik there. I think the residents of the town really appreciated them taking the time to be there.

It sure did bring attention to the event and the town of Haslev not to mention the forest tower as well.

Frederik looked like he was having a great time, as well as Mary.

Indeed.

And it is as always lovely to see how girlish Mary tends to become when she's around Frederik in a less formal setting like this.
Judging from glances she is sending him in some of the photos, she doesn't appear to have immediate plans about throwing pots and pans after him.

QMII was also often girlish when she was around PH.

Muhler - you read my mind. I was thinking the same thing when I saw some of the photos of them today. Smitten is a great word. More than 20 years of dating and almost 18 years of marriage and she looks at him the same way. And let's not forget Frederik does the same. The photos from the Royal Run are a great example of the mutual "smittenness" (is that even a word or did I just invent one? lol). It is like sometimes she still looks at him like "I still cannot believe he asked" and he looks at her like "I still cannot believe she said yes". It really is lovely to see.

I wonder if they didn't just have a couple of days to themselves to relax and reconnect after some busy weeks they've had and stuff they have coming up. They looked very at ease/relaxed and rejuvenated tbh.

________________________

Frederik's soldier buddy was asked about the big hug he and Frederik shared during the receiving line and here is what he had to say: We know each other from Næstved, where Crown Prince was my division leader with the Guard Hussars. He helped to educate me, and he and Valdemar of Rosenborg, who was also a hussar, they have a special place with me and with the soldiers in Næstved and the surrounding area. We have met each other on other occasions, so yes, we are on hugs. The Crown Prince and Crown Princess are doing incredibly well as representatives of the Danish Royal Family, says Lars Folmann, when the newspaper asks about the episode."

Here is a photo of the warm greeting between the two:
