Today, Frederik hosted a networking event and dinner for DenmarkBridge, which aims to ensure Danish companies and entrepreneurs better access to knowledge, networks and capital in Silicon Valley, California.

From one of the ministers:
https://www.instagram.com/p/CQJYby-B..._web_copy_link
"I am on my way to Amalienborg behind me. Here I will meet with HRH the Crown Prince and leading Danish business people. I am very much looking forward to that.
Among other things, we will among other things discuss digitalisation, sustainability and globalisation. It may seem like smart buzzwords, but: These are incredibly important agendas that we need to tackle properly so that it also leads to growth and prosperity around our entire lovely country. It is central to the forthcoming business reforms that will make Denmark richer and stronger.
That is why it is important to meet in networks like tonight, where we get to talk together about the right way forward. And then it is always a great honour to meet our capable Crown Prince, who tonight, is engaged in important issues for our good country."

Frederik today visited a childrens summer camp, as patron of Save the Children.
https://faa.dk/artikel/hov-er-det-ik...it-i-svendborg

https://m.facebook.com/search/top/?q..._tn__=%2As%2As

In his element. He is great with kids.

"The summer holidays have just begun, and today His Royal Highness the Crown Prince sailed out to the South Funen archipelago with a group of young people and volunteers from Save the Children's holiday camp.⁣ ⁣ The schooner Fylla from 1922, which today functions as an educational ship and which was previously a supply ship on the west coast of Greenland, formed the framework for today's sailing. After an hour at sea, the sails were hoisted, and on the deck, the Crown Prince helped several of the children to arrange ropes. ⁣ Since 1949, Save the Children has held holiday camps for children, young people and families in vulnerable positions. At the holiday camps, children, young people and families participate in positive communities and activities that compensate for a number of key deprivations they experience in everyday life. His Royal Highness is the patron of Save the Children and regularly visits the organization's holiday camps and experience clubs. ⁣ "

Indeed. I can se him wanting the focus to be on the other children.

"- I have once again been confirmed that the initiatives we take and do in Denmark - and especially in Save the Children - give the child or young person a peace and a belief in themselves.*There are many who cannot quite find a foothold in their own lives.*Then they come here and get the calm and structure that children really like.

The volunteers also received a special greeting from the Crown Prince along the way.

- I can see that the volunteers show a joy in and a personal knowledge of the individual children, and the children feel safe and happy with the volunteers.*It gives a special presence that the volunteers take the time, next to their work, to be there for these young people who may need it a little more than others."

Tomorrow Crown Prince Frederik as Patron will attend the celebration of the 100th anniversary of 5. Thule expedition (initiated by polar researcher Knud Rasmussen) and the opening of the Northern Light Festival in Copenhagen.

On the occasion of the anniversary he has given an interview to Greenlandic travel magazine Suluk, the photos were taken at Knud Rasmussen's house in Hundested:

How nice! We know how much Greenland means to him.
"“It was for me, who had never entered that part of Greenland before, a huge moment that I appreciate even more over the years. The further away I get from it, the more fun it is to reread my diaries, and of course it is also interesting in this context to look into some of Knud Rasmussen's books and study his stories ”.

This picture is amazing

The interview and complete article with Suluk can be read here
https://en.calameo.com/read/0007751947a5c055521ec
(In English too, hurray!)

"The Crown Prince, who has four children, has one last piece of advice to young people in search of adventure outdoors: – You really need to start with sleeping in a tent with, e.g. your brothers, sisters, mum or dad and to follow your curiosity about nature. Perhaps you go back indoors at three in the morning with ice-cold toes because your sleeping bag is not warm enough, but it is about daring to take the first steps, despite your fears and in that way start with a little at a time. Then you can go even further; become a scout or take weekend trips and sleep in shelters. – Or you could travel to Greenland and get some experience there, he adds and concludes:
– I remember my first tent trip. It was not far from my own garden, which pushed my limits, since I had never tried anything like it before. He laughs at the memory of his younger self and the thought of daring to push limits to develop. Just like the heroes of the past and present."

I should have liked to attend this!

Anything with one of both of the Willerslev brothers (they are twins) is interesting.
Rane Willerslev is head of the National Museum.
Eske Willerslev is a world-leading geneticists.

Is he the gentleman on the stage with Frederik? I would love to know what they are discussing during the panel segments posted on the Museum's IG stories https://instagram.com/nationalmuseet...dium=copy_link. Muhler, if you get the chance, and it would not be too much trouble, could you kindly summarize some of what they are saying?!

And how cute are those dogs! My neighbor used to have a beautiful huskie named Lobo (Spanish for Wolf).

That's Rane Willerslev. (I misspelled the last name in my previous post)

Both he and Frederik told about the expeditions they have been on.
Frederik of course about Greenland, and Rane Willerslev about Siberia (Where Frederik also went to in his late teens. To Mongolia to be exact.
But Rane Willerslev is a storyteller par excellence, which you can tell from Frederik's face.
Right now Rane Willerslev often visits a tribe in norther Uganda.

You can watch this 5 minutes video of him talking about Siberia, with English subtitles:


And Eske Willerslev talking about a most interesting skeleton that was found some years ago in North America - there is a theory that this individual migrated along the ice from Europe, rather than through Siberia.


I think this is a better illustration than any summary I can write.

If the Willerslev brothers fascinate you, I suggest you do a YouTube search with the words: "Willerslev English"

Thank you Muhler!! I love all this type of stuff (I geek out over a show called Expedition Unknown with an archeologist named Josh Gates).

Here is a nice article with video from today from BB. You can tell how passionate Frederik is about this. He is so relaxed and animated!
https://www.billedbladet.dk/video/7HIWI8Mj/hcrV3WTd

This event is getting good coverage!!

Very nice photo of Frederik
https://smooth-storage.aptoma.no/use...ef03f76fa0996e


Some more photos/videos from the event today. You can see/hear Frederik on stage and then listening to a performance. I have no clue what the singer is saying, but the melody is beautiful!

Oh yes, it has.

This is Frederik being relaxed and talking about something he is passionate about and you can tell.

https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...vild-oplevelse

The journalist points out that they were 1.000 km away from the nearest human being during the Sirius 2000 expedition.
Frederik starts out by inflating himself a little, because the expedition started out from the remote Quaanaq village, but the dogs had not been teamed up properly before setting out, so within moments the dogs were fighting among themselves and the reins holding the dogs were hopelessly entangled - to the great amusement of the locals!
That's when the locals came up with an alternative name for the expedition: Failure 2000...
From 00:20- 01:00.

Then he talks about there really not being an opportunity to talk about things and exchange deep thoughts at the end of the day. They were wasted needing 7.000 calories a day! The cold and physical strains takes it's toll.
(It's normal for a Sirius patrolman, who is in peak physical condition to lose some 10-20 kilos during a standard trek lasting a couple of months.)

Notice the stunning looking Greenlandic family at 01:27. I think I have seen the father before.

Frederik's expression at 02:01 is explained by the need for a transition before going straight from Daneborg (the HQ of the Sirius Patrol) to Denmark, otherwise he would hide in a corner in one of the palaces like a frightened animal.

The relationship with the Sirius Patrolmen and their dogs is legendary!
They are big, intelligent and immensely strong - and half wild. They have to be. Domesticated dogs rely to much on their pack-leader, their human, and that can make the difference between life and death in an emergency.
The human steer the pack alright and is in charge of distributing food and such, but it's the most intelligent and strongest dog, that is the executive pack-leader.
The dogs are sentries in case a polar bear gets too close and they will attack a polar bear without hesitation and before being ordered to do it by their human.
Some yeas ago Frederik, Mary, QMII and PH visited Greenland, and Frederik was to demonstrate how to drive a sledge. He started out by kicking and yelling at the dogs, because there must be no question as to who is in charge.
It is normal, perhaps even crucial, that the patrolmen form a very strong bond with one dog in particular. The dog is a close friend and psychologist and the dog will accompany the patrolman when he goes to the privy. Both to stand guard but also to eat he feces. That's good calories that shouldn't be wasted and it strengthens the bond between dog and man.
And protects against polar bears. Dog feces = trouble. But human feces, now that might be worth investigating!

The dogs of the Sirius Patrol are put down at age five. By then they are worn out and it would be an act of cruelty to bring them on a trek. They would have problems keeping up, and a weak dog is bullied mercilessly by the other dogs.
So the patrolman takes his favorite dog away, say goodbye and shoot it. That's not something you leave for others to do.

This photo illustrate how big the dogs are:
https://karriere.forsvaret.dk/global...er/sirus_3.jpg
It's unconditional love though:
https://artebooking.dk/wp-content/up...de-forside.jpg

The view from the office is great:
https://karriere.forsvaret.dk/global...er/sirus_2.jpg
Also at night:
https://www.kanalfrederikshavn.dk/ty...d7ba7a2b7e.jpg

During a trek they sleep in tents, but sometimes they have the luxury of sleeping in one of the old hunters-cabins dotted over Eastern Greenland.
Being perhaps 10-15 square meters, this is where a pair of hunters lived for a year at a time, sometimes two or three years, if the annual supply-ship couldn't get through the ice.
https://www.udogse.dk/wp-content/uploads/fangst4.jpg
That is if a polar bear hasn't knocked down a wall in order to get inside...

AFAIK the Sirius Patrol still use bolt action rifles. They work in the cold.
https://laststandonzombieisland.file...-2048x1366.jpg

Frederik:
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...g-beretnin.jpg
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...ig-vovse--.jpg

A Sirius man is a professional soldier who signs up for two years in Greenland, interrupted by two weeks leave in Iceland, for dentist visits and such.
Some opt to stay for longer than that. But most leave the military afterwards. They have become too individualistic even for the special forces.
Upon arriving at Daneborg, they are teamed up with an experienced Sirius man, who teach them all they know, and the next year, they are in return teamed up with a new man, whom they teach what they know.

So far no woman has been a member of the Sirius Patrol. The physical demands alone are so taxing that few women can pass. There can be no lowering of standards or they die - and risk the lives of others. Because if you end up in trouble during a patrol you are on your own.
No helicopters can reach you, even if there were any around. The only way to get help is by another patrol, that will be hundreds of kilometers away. And AFAIK it has happened only once that a patrol was rescued by another patrol.
Planes you say? The nearest planes are in south-east Greenland, at the very least a 1.000 kilometers away. Even if a plane can reach and find you, it has to land - perhaps twenty kilometers away. That is, if the weather is good.
Ships? At best days away, if they can even come anywhere near you, due to the ice.
Because the Sirius Patrol make their big treks during late winter early spring when the ice is firm. And during the winters there are no one else there. No scientists, no tourist, no one.
Apart from upholding Danish sovereignty of North East Greenland, by presence, the Sirius Patrol during the summer double as police officers, paramedics, guides, civil servants, advisors, nature guides and all the other multitude of services of a state apparatus to scientist and tourists as well a a few Greenlandic hunters.

Why not snowmobiles?
They need fuel. If a snowmobile breaks down you are in trouble!
If a dog breaks down, you continue.
And in an emergency you can't eat a snowmobile.

Wow! Thank you so much Muhler. This was fascinating to read! I do recall seeing that bit of video from the 2004 Greenland trip with QM, PH and the CPC. I will admit that it was difficult for me to watch that! But reading this now, I see why there has to be a clear definitive leader and that it is not out of any cruelty, but necessity and just how things work. I needed to separate the idea of a domesticated dog (like my fur baby) to a sled dog in this environment and these conditions. It is truly life or death! The photos you posted clearly show the bond created with human/animal. Must be difficult when the dog has to be put down for its own good so that it does not suffer.

Also, reading this has put more into focus the amazing feat Frederik accomplished during the Sirius 2000 expedition. Four months in those conditions. He really could have died if something went terribly wrong. He was on his own, dependent on himself and the team he was with (human/canine). Some people must have thought he was crazy to do this! I guess it also puts into perspective how that expedition really did change him mentally, emotionally, even spiritually tbh. Hence, his passion when speaking about it and lending itself to his love for Greenland.

I remember watching a short clip of him during the expedition and remember seeing a cabin just like the one you posted in the video. It is when the guys learn it is Frederik's birthday.

Thank you so much for the photos as well! Stunning images, especially the nighttime ones.
