nice to read that they are back on their horses (Josephine included)
It's nice that although we sometimes get pictures, the majority of the time they are left alone. I think they have come to enjoy and love Gråsten.

I think so. He has been riding since he was little. It is one of the activities that we hear and see that they regularly do together , especially in the summer. If not pictures that come out, there have been lots of news notes that come out of both going out to horseback ride.

Two photos of them from last year

No pictures (thankfully)

Good holiday to the CP-family.
I don´t think that Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine has taken part in the riding camp

There are photos of CPss Mary: https://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...a4&oe=57F73AF6

Photos of Mary, Christian, and the twins riding bikes from Gråsten to their horseback riding school

no more training wheels for the twins. They all look ready to ride. I'm glad Josephine looks ready to go and seems not afraid of horses from her fall last year

Okay, let's have a look at where the photos were made.
As far as possible this has been verified by Street View.
This map is to be updated as more photos trickle in.

https://app.box.com/s/9uoa8c55q5klvcla48bhkvegkfa8seij

The distance to the riding club (Google is actually wrong here) is some 350-400 meters and crossing one moderately trafficked road.

Mary smiling nicely in the photographer's lens. She knows by now where they'll be waiting to take photos. Thank you for the delightful pictures!

You can see Christian was dressed for riding. He is wearing his riding (horse) helmet and boots. In my early riding days I did the same, my riding hat had a detachable brim, for when on my bike. I upgraded to a proper equestrian helmet when I got into dressage.

Yes, the photographers usually hang out in the same intersection - in open view. Probably saying hello as well.
Because strictly speaking they go against the law on privacy.

Deligtful pictures of Mary, Christian, little Vincent and Josephine on their way to the Gråsten Riding School.

Look at those little cute riding boots on Josephine
I think all four children will be horse girls(boys) like their mom. But well, have they any choice with such parents? Frederik has after meeting Mary seemed to be very fond of horses as well.

Frederik was along as well... This picture says Crown Prince Frederik on one of the horses. I guess Frederik and Bella maybe took the bicycles a bit after.

They grows so fast... I agree with Mary in the interview she gave to a Danish media some months ago:
Stop the time! Now the twins must not grow any bigger

And Christian and Bella really aren't little children any longer. Times flies...

How are they against privacy rules if they are in public? Because there are children?

Basically you can't just walk up to anyone, whether in public or in private, and take their picture without consent. Especially children.
Unless there is a very good reason or the one you are photographing is a part of something where (s)he must be expected to be photographed, like a carnival.
Strictly speaking that also applies to celebs and royals. - But of course royals know that what they do is somewhat newsworthy. So as long as the photographer is standing in open view and perhaps saying hi, it's part of the game.
But if the photographer had been hiding behind a bush or using a 20.000 mm lens PET would very like grab him by the collarbone.
And if Mary had say "no photos" to the photographer - that's it.

But as said before, every year photographers hang around at that intersection to snap a few photos and the DRF know it and I imagine the photographers sometimes see the children playing in the park. But of course they don't take photos of that.

Thank you, Muhler. Grasten looks like a lovely place to spend the summer. There's even a playground for the children. I notice there are memorial stones for Frederik IX and Ingrid. I know they are not interred there, so I presume there is some sort of memorial garden? Queen Ingrid designed the gardens at Grasten, didn't she?

She did. Completely from scratch.

There were originally a few roses more resembling flu-patients, but they were removed and now there is a garden that is very popular place to go for the locals.
Queen Ingrid and Frederik IX are both buried at Roskilde Cathedral.

I guess they tolerate it because it's not in the very privacy of their lives (unlike during their Australian holidays), it's basically when they're cycling on the street.

Plus pictures of this "look at us, we're just like you" moment combined with the fact they're holidaying in DK can only be good for their image.

Absolutely.

It's great PR and it's a good way to please the press with very little inconvenience to themselves.

yep. No need to make a big deal from a few snaps on their bike ride.
the alternative of making a big fuss or worse, stopping these family bike rides, would be a shame.
Just continue their normal family life
and it helps ensure that they will be otherwise left alone in other outings. their usual holidays in Denmark have been very discreet.

That's a great point about PR, I agree. I think photos like this are beneficial to the family's reputation amongst the Danish public, since, as you said, members of the public will be able to relate to them more if they see them doing "normal" activities.
