Frogman aspirants wear read helmets until they have graduated - or much more likely - have left. So the red caps worn by Mary and the girls are appropriate.
thanks! Vincent and Christian are also wearing the red caps, only the qualified frogman Frederik is without, makes sense

that is Christian jumping. In the Instagram stories on the DRF instagram we can see video clips of the kids jumping. We see Vincent, Christian and Isabella jumping. Josephine is in the water already

really love that all 4 got a taste of the training. how fun

I like how the DRF's social media team lets the royals post themselves sometimes on their Instagram - or at least quote what they've said with more personal photos. It makes Kongehus's account seem much more authentic and down to earth.

Agree 100% with you. I just love the down to earth photos of this couple. You kind of feel included in their holiday jaunts. "Finding objects using maps ", sounds like fun and its a different way to keep the family occupied.
Fred and Mary like making holiday time with their children interesting and a learning experience.
That is a very high jump from the ship for Christian.
Doesn't Fred look happy relaxed and contented these days. He always looks his best when surrounded by his family. He and Mary have done a wonderful job bringing up their children.

So wonderful to get all Frederik's and Mary's own private pictures and tales from their unofficial summer trip with the kids around in all of Denmark's little gems.
It is learning in the very best way. They show their children their land and let them meet and know their countrymen through active play and activities. Must be an great last week of the family’s last week of summer vacation. I enjoy following it!

If you click on the Danish Royal House's Instagram and click on the icon with the Crown at the top - you can see their Instagram stories - videos where the whole family jumps in the sea from Dannebrog. Watch them with sound on.

a nice facebook message from the Frogman corps on the family's visit yesterday: "In connection with kronprinsfamiliens summer cruise with the royal boat Dannebrog they came today past kongsøre. It was a pleasure to greet Pingo and his lovely family.Continued good raid to all of you "

nice touch referring to Frederik with his frogman nickname of Pingo

M&F and Christian and Isabella have just arrived to an open air music festival, the Smuk Festival at the scenic town of Skanderborg in Eastern Jutland.
So far they have been spotted backstage.
Reports Ritzau.

No photos yet. But there will be, there are thousands of people around.

- Wasn't it at Smuk Festival a couple of years age, we saw a... very merry... Frederik on stage?

Follow up.

And we have the first photo, sort of.
https://www.bt.dk/kendte/rune-overra...s-frederik-der

It's Rune Majland who suddenly saw Frederik at the festival among the fstival goers.
He tells:
"We were down to see Nena. Then he (Frederik) is suddenly running around on the square/festival grounds. He had some guys around him, to protect him.
Then I say to him: You (informal) wouldn't mind having a selfie, would you?
He was pretty laid back and said: Then you (informal) gotta be damned quick."

Update from the festival:

Mary and the children are rocking away to Citybois.
There is a video of them in this live report on BT, which you may wish to follow, bedtime is coming up for me.
https://www.bt.dk/musik/foelg-smukfest-live-her

In the meantime Frederik is rocking along to Suspekt.
Also on video in the link above.

It's nice that the family can have a good time without being photographed or having their photos released. Not all major royals have the luxury!

This couple really appear to have the best of both worlds. They perform their royal duties very well, and when they are on private holidays the public show their respect by allowing them to go about their business of holiday fun without disturbing them too much. That is the best way to show respect. And I think they are very fortunate to receive this from the public.

The CP Family on the way again:

"Then we go again. The Danish summer weather is based on its windy but also beautiful side.

And where are we?"

That's easy to answer: They are passing Sletterhage Lighthouse at Helgenæs. - That's directly east of Aarhus, heading east.

The island the ship is passing to the south is likely the northern most bit of Samsø.

That's the most logic route back to Copenhagen by sea from Skanderborg.

ADDED:
A couple of photos of Frederik at the festival last night, sitting next to Bent Wedell of the Wedell family.

I'll spare you a headache by not mentioning what was said in the article to the photos. I can however say the the band Frederik was listening to, Suspekt, is known for their lewd songs.
That's not for the ears of children and small dogs.

Good article on the family visiting the festival.
https://www.bt.dk/royale/kongehuseks...YnA6Sb0aKvnsFA

"According to Søren Jakobsen, it is positive to see a royal family who are not afraid to come out among the Danes.
"The alternative would be that they didn't get there at all, because there are as many cell phones and selfies as there are guests.*It's good they don't stay away.*It is very unpretentious and it is really good, 'says the royal house expert."

Indeed and what is even better is that they are allowed to go such a public event and just be themselves. Because despite the many photos there must have been taken of them, their privacy has largely been respected. I.e. not zillions of photos in the papers.

May that remain so.

BB reports that M&F and children have gone ashore on the island of Læsø. So they sailed north after passing Sletterhage Lighthouse.
Here the family was received by the harbor-master (Havnefoged) as well as a number of locals.
Dannebrog herself is anchored north of the island.
BB also reports that a number of pictures have surfaced on private accounts on the Net. - So happy hunting, resident news diggers.

https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...-er-de-lige-nu

I'll return later with some info about the island.

------------------

Correct, Polyesco.

We don't have a coast guard in DK, instead we have Navy Home Guard vessels and certain navy patrol vessels to perform tasks that would elsewhere be carried out by the coast guard.
Rota is such a vessel.

Dannebrog is the first ship in the navy and when another navy ship pass her, the crew will always line up on the deck and salute Dannebrog.
I understand that it is customary for members of the DRF, if aboard, to go on deck and acknowledge the salute.

Let's have a closer look at the scenic island of Læsø.

Located between Northern Jutland and Sweden, the island has a population of less than 2.000. Considerably more in the summer months though.

http://danarige.dk/wp-content/upload...ort-laesoe.jpg
https://www.visitlaesoe.dk/sites/def..._laesoe_vl.jpg
(The distances are much greater than this photo gives the impression of.)

There are three town, villages actually, on the island, Vesterby, where the feery to and from the island sails to. Østerby, which has a small harbor for fishing boats and small sailing ships as well as boats. And Byrum in the middle of the island.
http://petkomotiv.dk/wp-content/uplo...B8-kort-01.jpg

The island is basically one long beach all around the island.
https://www.visitlaesoe.dk/sites/def...?itok=vaBVsniF
Making it a favorite, but rather quiet holiday destination.
Here your pulse will drop orders of magnitudes, because you can basically only get off the island when the ferry sails, so you might just as well settle down and take it easy.
http://www.faergelejet.dk/billeder/1200/16/089683.jpg
And enjoy the scenery.
https://d2wgp4u47gi6he.cloudfront.ne...l_1440_420.JPG
Unsurprisingly there are lots of summer cottages and holiday resorts on the island, but no large hotels. The tourists (and the islanders) simply don't want it!
So this about as big as they get on Læsø.
https://www.opdagdanmark.dk/wp-conte...%A6s%C3%B8.jpg
Most prefer a summer cottage.
https://picture.feline.dk/get/3b134e...2a6e9737_2.jpg
https://s-ec.bstatic.com/images/hote.../126091567.jpg
https://picture.feline.dk/get/179fd2...47970b07_4.jpg
https://picture.sommerhusedanmark.dk...46d2509_11.jpg

Arriving by the ferry, you sail to Vesterby.
https://www.visitlaesoe.dk/sites/def...?itok=NIzQIRNw
Which looks like this at sunset:
https://www.laesoe-havn.dk/images/havn-rod.jpg

But M&F wanted to sneak in. Dannebrog anchored north of the island, so the CP-family went aboard the chaluppe and sailed south around the island, arriving in Østerby. That has a smaller harbor than Vesterby, with the ferry and all.
http://laesoestrand.dk/wp-content/up...er_laesoe7.jpg
And this is what the CP-family would have seen sailing into Østerby.
https://pix10.agoda.net/geo/city/666...jpg?s=1920x822

But the locals were not fooled! The local and ever vigilant Home Guard squad, must have spotted them and alerted the island.
Here is a photo of pretty much the entire defense force of the island:
https://www.hjv.dk/oe/HVKFRH/nyheder...8%202017-6.JPG

The island is also well-known for its salt. That has a distinct flavor, different from the one you buy in supermarkets.
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...x-Sydesalt.JPG

Beforehand Læsø was a feared place for ships sailing near the island! In bad weather the locals had a tendency to cause ships to founder, by walking around with lanterns.
When a ship beached, the locals could claim the cargo and what else could be used, provided of course the king got his share. That was the job of the Strandfoged = Beach-magistrate. - Who got his cut too.
Now, that only applied if the crew had perished, but that could be arranged... - and was!

Thanks, Blog Real and you are welcome, Ista.

Some of you may think: What an ugly made thatched roof! That's because it's made from plant growing in the sea. Sea-reed, rather than straw.
That was out of simple necessity. Sea reed was and is readily available and free, while there was a limit to how many fields there were on an island this size.
So it may look unkempt, but it works.

I also see that the family helped in making salt.

Thanks, Polyesco.

According to the article M&F went ashore already Thursday, where they dined somewhere on the island and frolicked a bit on a beach.
Friday was the big sightseeing tour.

Lovely photos of a natural and humble little family
I like it’s mommys own pictures!

Have been a pleasure to follow - and learn - from their visits around to Denmarks beautiful little gems and places.

School start on Monday and the Crown Prince family’s vacation seems to have been relaxing and good.
