The Crown Prince Couple hear about the legend of the Seal Woman and get an introduction to the village.
The Crown Prince Couple walk with the mayor to the statue of the Seal Woman. There, singer Ingibjørg Hansen, who grew up in the house where the Seal Woman comes from, will perform.

Here is some cuteness-overload!

A BB video.
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...rlig-brydekamp

Frederik and the boys waiting for mother and the girls - nothing new under the sun here...
A very shy Josephine.
And last but not least, enjoy Christian and Vincent.

And we have the daily Daily Mail report: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...e-Islands.html

Help! What's a posy??

Thank you all for all the pictures, links and information!
What lovely pictures! I especially love the new family picture (though sadly withoud Joesphine). They seem really happy and the landscape is stunning! (And I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of the traditional costumes - so the hiking/outdoor outfits are very welcome. It's great that they wear them, don't get me wrong, but it's not really my favourite fashion style. And escpecially the girls sometimes seem a bit uncomfortable in their long (and not so warm) dresses.)

It seems to be a great trip so far. I hope it doesn't get too much for the childern, they are all very busy! - but I'm sure Mary and Frederik let them rest when they need to.

What a cute video.
They are truly just a normal family in an unusual world.
Josephine being so mommy-sick that she is hanging on Mary so much her mum almost fall into Isabella, while Frederik tries to make the boys stop playing too wild boys-games.
A total normal family, nice to see

A good and large gallery from Day 2:

A good interview of Frederik and Mary on bringing Christian and the kids "on the job"

https://www.dr.dk/nyheder/indland/kr...i-livets-skole

"- Let's just use the term 'school of life'. It is certainly also a good way to get a form of education and schooling. Let's just call it. There is plenty to learn from experiencing another climate, another culture and certainly something that gives something to the hard drive, says Crown Prince Frederik, who designates curiosity as a key word for Prince Christian preparations.'

I used google translate so maybe our Danish members can add/correct

All during the stay and while sailing between the islands, a patrol-frigate has quietly been following Dannebrog.

I think this is a Faeroe hippie. Love the jacket! And it's the first one I see that isn't closed properly

Thank you, polyesco! That's really interesting. And it's good to hear that Christian enjoys the trip so far.

Let us not forget the oldest visitor to the islands.
She may not be as young any more, but there sure is nothing wrong with her curves!

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Bpt_uk-xYb.../Dannebrog.jpg
https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso...e-p-frerne.jpg

Isn't she beautiful?

Well, as predicted there has been some controversy. The chairman of the Parliament, Páll á Reynatúgvu, will not attend the reception aboard Dannebrog tomorrow.
Being republican and in favor of independence from Denmark, he has no problems receiving and hosting M&F as guest to the Faeroe Islands, but he will not attend the return dinner, where M&F are the hosts. - (And as such also representing QMII as the head of state.)
He has officially excused himself that he is unable to attend because his daughter is playing a soccer match at the same time. (A diplomatic "cold".)

That has been met with widespread criticism among the islanders, even though who are also in favor of independence. He has been labelled embarrassing and unprofessional, because he as chairman of the Parliament represents all Faeroese.

That's it!! I am definately in love! I love the Dannebrog. You can keep the big multi million dollar billionaire yachts. The Dannebrog is for me. I could think of nothing better than to be a sailor on board. I just love the way the royal family use her also. I think it is easy to love seeing her in so many different exotic locations. Where hills and mountains frame her beautiful curves. (As you say.)

Thanks for the warning Muhler about the scenery on day 2. And mang tak to all who posted links and videos. It is so nice to see this loving family together and being so normal except when posing for photographs. They do that well too.
The Faroe Islands another beautiful place in the world we tend to overlook.

This is a serious warm look in Mary's eyes, wonder who she is looking at...

Tarlita, if you are into scenery I think you will have something to look forward to tomorrow!

Carina, I think we will see the children wear the national costumes all three days, because they are presents from the local municipalities and they would no doubt like to see how their presents look on the children. Apart from that the islanders are very proud of their costumes. - We may not see the children Sunday though IMO.
Thanks for all the background material Muhler, it's the little things that give not only context but colour, like that the traditional clothes were a gift. It made the fit and the beauty of the clothes even more special and import. It's those little gems that help to flesh out and give context to what we are seeing and reading.

But oh Muhler, we can indeed guess who Mary is looking at. A handsome and happy husband called Fred. Who'd have thought that your erudite, fact-driven and often humorous persona housed a distinctly romantic marshmallow centre?

BTW a posy is a small mixture of hand held flowers. In Victorian times also called a tussie mussie. TMs were usually made up of flowers that had a meaning, health, wealth, love etc.
So flowers given to royals at various events are usually posies. Being a small mixture of flowers rather than a large bouquet type.

Thanks, Tarlita.
I've learned something new.

You make me blush, Marg.
It's a matter of necessity. Our silver anniversary is coming up and Mrs. Muhler hasn't kicked me out yet, so...

Anyway, while waiting for tomorrows events, where there will be a lot of footage from the nature, the weather permitting, let us enjoy some serious dramatic scenery!

No comments needed I think. Except; suddenly the cool weather, rain and fog seem an acceptable price to pay for a view like this from your back garden, eh? And while there, you may wish to buy a sweater.

CP Mary's family is gorgeous. But, is it right for the children to be so high-profile and to be fussed over so much? There is an issue with the European monarchies and that is that any monarch's younger child is not becoming self-supporting. Therefore, would it be better if the royal children only see Real Life and then the heir starts Public Life as an adult?

Growing up, we used the word posy, incorrectly,as a more casual name for a flower. I really don’t hear it used anymore. Unless I am playing “ring around the rosie”

I think it is lovely for the people of the Faroe's to see the children growing up so fast. And we can see they love to hug each other very much.
I can imagine Fred rolling around on the floor wrestling with his boys in private.

And might i just say that at 50 years of age Fred is still the best looking Crown Prince in Europe with Haakon a very close second.
I know Polyesco will agree with me.
And congratulations to Mrs Muhler on her silver wedding anniversary.

How are they "so high-profile and fussed over so much" ?

It's not a family visit if the kids are not there. Frederik and Joachim also took part in similar visits when they were kids and growing up.

The Crown Prince Couple's kids are not often on official visits or events. Much less than Joachim's kids. Most of the time, during school year, we see little of them. During holidays, it's mostly paparazzi photos.

As kids of the future king they will be in the public eye, even if they don't have royal duties. It doesn't mean that they can't "see real life" for most part.
So will Joachim's kids and they are the kids of the "second son".

The heir (Christian) can't just pop up at 18 and be expected to be ready. So far, he hasn't been much in the public eye but that will probably start to change.

A well illustrated BT article of the family going to Mikladalur, population: 24.
Here it was Vincent who took over.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billeder...-klippeeventyr

He was in fine form and darted up and down cliffs like a mountain goat and loudly told his family he'd like to stay for a while.
