Indeed.

Unfortunately the Mediterranean is crawling with paps, who have their contacts at the hotels and airports and what not, so it's difficult to avoid them.

In a perfect world Mary and Frederik would have privacy on their vacations, (and I'm sure they have had privacy on many prior getaways). Realistically if they want a good shot at a private holiday they need to go where there's a reasonable expectation of privacy - ie not a boat in an open, unrestricted body of water. They would need to hole up on a private estate or yacht somewhere, looking over their shoulders the whole time, and even that's no guarantee.

I'm sure the family knew they might be photographed but decided the benefits of the type of vacation they chose outweighed the down side. Mary and Frederik have never gotten too bent out of shape over being photographed in these sorts of situations, as long as the photographers weren't too intrusive and the pictures weren't arguably inappropriate, (I still remember the debate over naked baby Christian on the beach).

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #30, 2017.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who has spoken with the Greek journalist, Lampros Demrtzis, and gotten a detailed account.
BB has in their usual styled opted not to show any paparazzi photos.

The earthquake at Kos took place at 01.31. M&F and their friends Jeppe and Birgitte Handwerk, as well as children, arrived at 17.00 on an Aegean Air flight from Athens. On the plane were also a number of Greek government officials, seismologists and journalists as well as other tourists, with whom M&F sat.

Lampros Demrtzis (LD): "The Danish royals were very interested in learning what had happened at Kos. They asked the flight crew questions about the earthquake".

VIP guests to Kos are normally taken through a special gate at the airport, but that was out of order, so M&F were taken through the ordinary gate along with other tourists. Here they waited among hundreds of tourists to be taken to their destination on the island. They were soon picked up by a mini-bus and driven to Kos city.
Here they the whole family went for a stroll along the beach and harbor, as well as having a look at the older part of the city, which has suffered a good deal of damage.
LD: "They walked through the streets and took many photos of the historical buildings that had been destroyed by the quake, like for instance the Saint Nikolas Church and the Defterdar Mosque, which are both located in central Kos city".

BB explains that the Greek response to M&F going on holiday to Kos, after the earthquake has been good. (Perhaps Greek members can confirm?)

LD: "According to my information the royal family will stay here until the end of July and they will probably have a fixed base aboard a yacht in the waters around here". - BB's deadline is Tuesday noon, so they would not have known about the latest pictures of M&F and family aboard the yacht at (probably) the Turkish coast.

Frederik Nellemann Linde from the DRF PR-office says: "It's correct that the Crown Princely family has been staying on the Greek island of Kos, where they have been in transit, before continuing on a private holiday".

Thanks, Eya.

I'm glad to hear that. Greece in general and the Greek islands near the Turkish coast in particular have had their fair share of problems in recent years! Affecting very much the local tourist industry.

Thank you Muhler. So Frederik, Mary and children were only staying on Kos in transit, and they seem to have moved on and now continue their private holiday a place without a local photographer in the bush

Daily Mail on M&F playing tennis in Skagen (*) Princess Mary takes to the tennis court in pleated skirt | Daily Mail Online

Nice legs! - No, Polyesco, I wasn't referring to Frederik's legs...

DM is also quoting New Idea for saying Mary is on the verge of announcing her being pregnant and as we all have learned over the years, New Idea would never write anything that isn't reliable...

(*) Skagen. The northernmost town in DK, located near the very tip of Jutland. It's a favorite destination among holiday makers. Not least among people living in the posh neighborhoods north of Copenhagen. In particular one week of the year is known as "Copenhagener-week", where they all seem to migrate in flocks to Skagen - to the great amusement of the locals!
It also tends to ruin the sleep of the local residents though. Being Jutlanders they all sleep with their Wallets under their pillows and these wallets tend to grow fatter during the summer! - "Salt to you eggs, sir? - That's extra".
I imagine M&F may have stayed for a few days at Birkelse Gods, the home of the Skeel family.

They did play the mixed double with Malou and Jørgen Skeel, so you are probably right.

Quite a tennis babe Nice legs indeed!

Great picture of Frederik, but I guess someone else won the match

Nice for Frederik and Mary to play tennis. A thing they have enjoyed from their very first years. So they must have driven from Gråsten to spend some days in North Jutland before traveling abroad.

The Crown Prince family sails with the Dannebrog

Crown Prince Couple and their four children, D.K.H. Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, are currently unofficially sailing with the Dannebrog.

Today, the Crown Prince family has visited Møns Klint on August 7, 2017 and will continue sailing with the Dannebrog in the coming days.

How nice!

Nice for the family, I'm sure, and lovely to see such a big smile from Mary. She's always very gracious.

Does anyone know how things work with the yacht? Is it available to the family whenever they want it or is it used for other things they have to schedule around?

Amber has just been in Paris, Egypt and London - and is now back in Melbourne I think, uneas314.

(Here's a link to her instagram, if you want to see the photos/videos she has posted of her travels.)

Dannebrog is considered a floating residence at the disposal of the DRF.

The crew, which mainly consists of conscripts, need hours at sea, so sometimes Dannebrog goes sailing without a member of the DRF aboard. But it is of course desirable if someone from the DRF are aboard, because some crew members also double as servants in the DRF mess, and one of the conscript cooks is directly allocated the DRF.
Apart from that, the reason why 100 % of the conscripts are volunteers and there is a waiting list for serving aboard Dannebrog is of course that the conscripts would like to experience the DRF up close.

While Dannebrog is considered the first ship in the Navy, all other navy ships are required to salute when passing Dannebrog, she is classified as an auxiliary ship, a hospital ship to be exact. Like all other navy ships she also monitor Danish waters when at sea and can be called upon to investigate something, like an oil slip or if need be put a boarding party aboard another ship. And finally like all other ships, in case of an emergency all other tasks are secondary - even if the DRF is aboard. Aiding a ship in distress or rescuing people takes precedence over everything else - even on summer cruises.

Today, August 8
"Kronprinsparret and their princes and princesses Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine visited Faaborg Museum today as part of their private holiday.
It was also for a walk in faaborgs sidewalks before crown Prince Frederik could sail his family back to dannebrog."

Thanks, Polyesco

It's nice they can be left fairly alone to have some family time.

This could be partly business, partly pleasure because (at least) Frederik's secretary and Chief of Court was also with them.
