Thanks Villemann, good to know. I believe this is standard in every crown princely household with small children. Just because they don't bring the nanny along in public does not mean that there is none. There is no other way to deal if you have events in the morning or afternoon or evening or even overnight. One person is not enough as there is no 24 hour work shift. There have been endless discussions in other threads about the nanny issue, if it's appropriate or not but I think it clearly is.

And her jewels are beyond wonderful. I know this is not the right thead for this(ese) questions, but it is the fist that I had heard of her pregancy.
There's a thread about that? Could someone send it to me? I had a suspition about that aswell after the photo of Mary in the white tunic a few weeks ago.

Thank you Villemann for your answer. I would assume that they had more than one nanny. It is nice to hear that the first nanny is still working for the family. She definitely wouldn't stick around if CP Mary was a difficult boss.

How is Mary difficult and hard to please? I am not questioning those claims and why they were made, i.e. I am not defending Mary...I would just like to know what the rumours ARE...Does she get angry and throw things at her staff or something?

If you wish to discuss the children's nannies, please do so in the following thread: The Nanny Issue for Mary.

Remember, we deal in facts, not rumors or speculations. Have a look at the Danish Forum Zero Tolerance Policy.

Thanks,

Nice beard, Fred!

No, I just think it's the way the wind is blowing up her cover-up that makes it look like she has a tummy. Isabella is only a little over a year old, I don't think she'd be pregnant again already.


And how handsome is Fred?

Cute pics

They are staying in Tisvildeleje, the pics with the twins were taken on June 26, the pics of Mary and Frederik with Isabella and Christian were taken on June 23 - they rode with their bikes down to the beach to see the Sankt Hans bonfire.

We own a summer house in Tisvildeleje and did indeed see them at Sankt Hans on the beach (which was absolutely stuffed by the way, wonder if people had tipped Mary and Frederik off). Didn't approach them as I thought they were entitled to some privacy, but seems like the press found them afterall. I believe they are staying with the Heering family in their summer house in Tisvildeleje. I've actually got an overall photo of the bonfire just so you can get a feeling of the place (don't mind the instagram-effects).

Do the couple own any summer house in Denmark?
Really nice family pictures & a nice clear glimpse of the twins who actually look very much alike.

How fun! Thanks for sharing the photo. And good for you for trying to give them some privacy.
Bad form for the parents not wearing bike helmets also

Thank you for the insight Zelia! Is the bonfire usually that packed or do you think that it was Mary and Frederick's presence that made the event more popular than usual? You seem to imply that the latter was the case.

Also, can I just say how lovely all the children in the bonfire pictures are dressed? I know this is probably a trivial topic, but Scandinavian children seem to be nonplussed by cartoon characters, hideous colors, sparkles, princess dresses, superhero-themed clothing and the like. They wear practical, timeless, classical clothes. I live in the States where I always have a hard time finding this kind of clothes for my children. It is really refreshing to see. (Incidentally, and completely OT, if you know of any brand sold in the U.S. that you can suggest, send them my way! Thanks)

Here's my opinion, Juliette and perhaps lots will disagree...I think it could well be a cultural thing unique to the Danes OR perhaps more controversially it could be a class thing...M&F hang out in middle/upper class areas with middle/upper class peeps and shop in middle/upper class kidswear 'boutiques' which is where you find clothes like these...Even in Australia where I live, you can go to the department stores and find all the bright merchandise-style clothes and then you go to an upmarket kids boutique and you find gorgeous clothes, in more subdued colours, no transfers or bedazzling to be seen and this comes with a price tag ($50 compared to $5 let's say)...And most people see quality clothing for kids (who are notorious for wrecking stuff) as excessive and a luxury...

I don't know about unique to the Danes, Nordic maybe.
The kids seem to be dressed very similar to kids where I am too.

Summary of a number of articles in Billed Bladet #26, 2012.
Written by Helle Skram de Fries and Ulrik Ulriksen.

As we know now, M&F and the children have started their holiday at Tisvilde, located on the northern coast of Zealand, actually not far from Fredensborg.

Last Saturday was Sankt Hans (Saint Hans) evening here in DK and this is when we celebrate the midsummer with bonfires at dusk. Traditionally a witch is placed in the fire, sitting on a broom and when the fire reaches her, she will according to floklore fly to Blocksberg/Brocken in Germany. Here witches and demons gather and party with the Devil.
There is often a speech and usually those present sing Midsommervisen = The midsummers song. (You can find it YouTube). At this time of the year the sun goes down around 22.30 and it up again around 03.00. It isn't really dark until between 23.30-02.00.

Okay, M&F plus Christian and Bella and quite a few of their friends. The people you see in the pictures close to M&F are mostly friends and not strangers.
Among the friends were Birgitte and Jeppe Handwerk.
Peter and Caroline Heering.
Anna-Sofie Reese.
Julie Mølsgaard.
- And their children.

M&F arrived in Tisvilde on Sankt Hans day (Saturday) and their friends joined them there.
The various children played at the summer cottage M&F have borrowed in the afternoon and in the evening all the friends gathered at the Handwerks. (Presumably they have a summer cottage there as well). Before going down to the beach to see the bonfire a little after 22.00.

M&F arrived to the cottage in the afternoon and were soon joined there by the Handwerks, who dropped by. The children played a bit in the garden.
But in the evening M&F were observed cycling from their borrowed summer cottage over to the Handwerk cottage. Christian in the lead, prudently wearing a helmet. Bella was wiser, she sat in a "Christiania-bike" (*), with dad as chauffeur. PET were also using the rye-bread engines.
The twins were left back in the cottage in the care of a nanny.
This is the third summer holiday in a row where the M&F go to Tisvilde.

Tuesday forenoon Mary was observed wheeling a twin-pram through the streets of Tisvildeleje village. Ziggy and PET provided perimiter security.
Julie Mølsgaard followed behind holding Isaballe's hand. Christian was still in school. (**) Frederik was on the job.
In the prams sat two, fairly longhaired twins and studied the world on the way to the bakers. Our reporter says the twins were singing, well....
But a passer-by exclaimed: "My, how they have grown"!

(*) It's actually a bike from Nihola, but such bikes are usually referred to as Christiania-bikes here in DK.

(**) The summer holiday for most schools in DK starts tomorrow and lasts six weeks.

It generally is a very popular place to gather for Sankt Hans and there usually are a lot of people, but for some reason I just think there were even more this year. Might be because of Frederik and Mary, but to be honest I don't think that a lot of people knew they were there (or at least I heard more discussing the presence of our former Prime Minister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen than I heard people mention the royals).
