Thank you Roskilde for sharing the photos; and I love that Mary dedicated the book to Frederik for his birthday. I've always thought that they were a lovely and warm couple; and seem to be a happy family. The photos of Frederik with a younger Christian and Isabella are super cute.

On this glorious day where the Danish national team will be running circles around the Australian national team - and destroy them, let's learn a little about Frederik's private birthday celebration.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #25, 2018.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who along with a number of other journalists took up position outside Fredensborg Palace all Saturday.
The party was organized by Mary and the theme was hippies/flower power/the summer of 68 and most of the 200 guests had indeed dressed up for the occasion. Some very much so, as you can tell from the scans!
Some where inspired by the Burning Man Festival, where the purpose is to dress as outlandish as possible.
Apart from close associates, like Per Thonit and wife, and Mary's hairdressed, SÝren Hedegaard with husband, it was basically one long parade of M&F's many friends.
Including Mary's dad John Donaldson and Susan Moody.

Isabella and Christian were observed and it is presumed Vincent and Josephine were there as well, because many guests brought along their children.
The celebration did not take place in the actual palace, but instead at M&F's former home, Kancellihuset, which must be considered large enough for the purpose, even with 200 guests.
Since the weather was great and Denmark was to play it's first match at the championships that Saturday a big screen had been set up to the delight of the many soccer fans present. DK won, so no eye was dry...
Joachim and our Marie were there too. Joachim in his famous rust-colored pants. They had a great time and left late!
Haakon and Mette-Marit were also among the guests. Mette-Marit with flowers in her hair. (The photo in the article is not from the birthday.)

The party began around 15.00 and ended long after midnight.

The toastmaster was the actor Nikolai Lie Kaas, who is also a friend of M&F.

Mary had arranged the entertainment, with contributions from various guests. Among them some of Frederik's old mates from the Frogman Corps, who started the party by singing for him.
A number of the female guests also sang Frederik's praise, as well as communal singing of the birthday song.
Lars Ulrich from Metallica was there as well, but I doubt he gave a performance.
But other bands did. (They will mean little to non-Danes though, so I won't go into details.)
There was also comical entertainment, by the in DK very popular Rytteriet = The Cavalry. - A couple, depicting mega-rich and most politically incorrect snobs. - Considering that many of the guests are pretty rich and live in the general area where these "snobs" claim to live, that was a most apt choice!

Perhaps someone can help me. Who are Simon and Sandra, who are depicted in the upper left corner of page 7? They said they have known M&F for many years.

But see for yourselves here: https://app.box.com/s/8x23ssumqv01z0a2osnchbr147x882ev

Quoting a Danish poster on DRF social media: "It's a painting, not a photograph".
If you want as much likeness as possible in a painting, Mary's is exactly like her and Frederik's is very good. His posture in the painting, walking towards his family, is so much like the Frederik we have seen in many photos.

The two paintings look really nice hanging there, next to each other. The colours are very warm and if you didn't know, you would think they were painted at the same time.

To me, it would have been better if only these two paintings had been in that room. Prince Philip could have been placed somewhere else.

His painting was very good and so was Queen Elizabeth, Sophie (can't remember her title) was ok and Edward was my least favourite. Judy Dench was very good.

Interview Frederik gave about the royal run
https://issuu.com/idraetsliv/docs/idr_tsliv0318_web/16
https://image.isu.pub/180625091623-2...humb_large.jpg

parts of the interview
https://www.bt.dk/danmark/kronprins-...il-virkelighed
"Yesterday, I met a lot of people who had never participated in a race, and who might not have experienced the joy of physical activity before. I saw a pride and well-being in their eyes when they came to a goal, and that's something I'll never forget, says the Crown Prince to the magazine."

Hi there, this is my first post so I am not sure if I am doing this correctly, however, I am wondering if the documentary screened for Frederik's 50th is available to view somewhere? Thank you.

Congratulations on your first post, Raindrops

That is a remarkable portrait and certainly depicts the man the Prince is now rather than Prince Charming who swept Mary off her feet.

It doesn't hurt that Frederick is easy on the eye although if it didn't reflect an honest picture would have been critically lambasted.

Wow.......what an outstanding portrait of handsome Frederik, that is fabulous. I really like this one of him for it seems to show him in different lights by the expressions on his face. He looks so delighted with it also......as always Prince Frederik is the most handsomest prince out there and those baby blues of his must blow Mary away at times.....

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #40.
Where a B. Kragh would like to know what the official Denmark gave Frederik for his 50th B-day.

Jon Bloch Skipper responds that the Parliament and the government presented Frederik with a painting by Anette Harboe Flensburg, named: The House in the World. The World in the House.

The painting now hangs at Aarhus University and here it will remain.
