The Crown Prince Couple again spends part of their summer vacation on Gråsten

A wonderful summer news!

Frederik, Mary and four children (and Ziggy) will again spend three weeks of their summer holiday at Gråsten. And Margrethe too.

And continue Queen Ingrid's tradition

Billed Bladet confirmed it last week, and now it's also confirmed by the local newspaper after a union meeting in Gråsten yesterday:

From the local paper:
"The Crown Prince Couple will again spend three weeks at Gråsten Palace.
In addition, Queen Margrethe as usual again also spends a few weeks at Gråsten."

ADDED:
That means we again will have wonderful and funny photo session to the Horse Parade, The Change of the Guards, the family photo session etc...

Can I conclude that queen Margrethe has unofficially started "leaving the place" to the crown prince and his family?

Sharing the place is perhaps better. Because in the recent documentary, she expressed how very fond she is of the place.
Benedikte is also very fond of Gråsten.

And if we consider a vacation period of two months, from late June to mid August, there should be plenty of time for QMII to be at Gråsten without having grandchildren running around all over the place.
So I guess they will overlap for a week or two at the most.

But it's great that M&F and children will spend a couple of weeks or so at Gråsten, because that means a steady trickle of photos. Something we wouldn't get if they went to Trend the whole summer, or abroad.

A question, does anybody know if the court has given an official date for the annual Gråsten photoshoot (2016)?

I think it's great the family all have a nice cosy summer get together at least once a year.

Not yet. I guess we will have a date in a couple of weeks.
But of course the local news will notice when M&F arrive, so we will get pics prior to the official shoot I'm sure.

Yes, and perhaps J&M and at least their youngest will be there this year.

As you know the summer vacation season has started...

And according to the local news paper The Crown Prince Family have now arrived to Gråsten Palace where they will spend 3 weeks of their summer holiday

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik are expected to arrive on 15th July and spend the last week together with the Crown Prince Family.

Her&Nu with an article quoting the local newspaper:
http://herognu.dk/kongelige/kronprin...samler-landet/

I do hope the media let's the Crown Prince Family enjoy their summer vacation alone!

Good news. Hope they have a great vacation there.

As long as M&F are on private ground their privacy is protected by law. But I guess there will be a trickle of photos when they go for a morning run or cycle around.

There is to be a ring-rider procession this year again I guess?

Yes, the ring-rider procession will be held on Sunday 17th July at 15.30. This will be in the Crown Prince Family third week on Gråsten Palace, so I guess we can expect the family's summer photo session to be held around this date, or a few days later, as well.

It is nice to hear that the CP family are at Gråsten, I hope they have a nice summer there. I'll be looking forward into the big photocall!

It's nice to read that they are in Gråsten, perfect for this outdoorsy and horseback riding family. Last year we got a few photos of them on their bikes to the horse stables but other than that they were pretty much left alone. One or two sightings but respected

With just a little luck we may get more glimpses of M&F (and the rest of the DRF) than we expected.
Throughout July the town of Gråsten will mark that Gråsten Slot has been the DRF summer-residence for 80 years. (Technically not entirely correct, because there were a couple of years during the Occupation when Gråsten was a German lazaret (military hospital).
Anyway tomorrow an exhibition will open about and Gråsten and the DRF and from then on there will be various events ending in a celebratory service in Gråsten Chapel on 31st July. And as QMII almost always go to church on Sundays...

M&F have seen a greeting from Gråsten of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/detdanskekongehus/?fref=ts

The photos are by Mary, and the message reads: "Beautiful Gråsten. It's lovely to be back and we enjoy the long summer-days and bright evenings".

Today, The Danish Royal Family published this greeting from the Crown Prince Family on their Facebook with Crown Princess Mary's own beautiful pictures of Gråsten Palace Garden (she's a talented photographer! Maybe the DRF's future court photographer )

**

Summer greetings from The Crown Prince Couple:

"Beautiful Gråsten. It's lovely to be back and we enjoy the long summer days and bright evenings".

Along with their four children the Crown Prince Couple spend vacation in Gråsten Palace, and on this occasion HRH Crown Princess Mary has taken a number of pictures from the castle garden.

It's great to hear they are having a nice bright summer. Its also nice to see some of Mary's photography work. Personally, I dont think her pictures are anything special, they are her perspective view and it's always interesting to see other peoples view and attention to details.

It seems that the CP family are having a nice time on their summer holiday. I liked the photos taken by Mary, she appears to be a good photographer - IIRC she has taken some of the children's photos before, though I could be thinking of someone else here.

Tidbits from a local paper:
Ridecamp på Gråsten Rideklub slutter med opvisning | SønderborgNYT

Some local children who have attend a summer riding camp at Gråsten Riding club this weekend says they have been riding together with Christian, Bella, Vincent and Josephine at the Gråsten Riding club. Also Mary have spotted riding some hours in the club.

No pictures (thankfully)

Good holiday to the CP-family.
