Nope, not here in Copenhagen. They are refered to as "Niholabike" or "Christianiabike" according to which one is in the limelight

I like that Mary and Frederik are doing some country holiday in Denmark. We/The press should leave them alone however and give them some privacy.

Maybe it's as you say. In any case, for a summer solstice, boy, it seemed really COLD!!! Look how everybody's dressed! Is that pretty typical?

Thanks for your reply!

Why is it referred to (sometimes!) as Christiania-bike? Is it because prince Christian made it "popular"?

No, the name stems from the famous/notorius 'freetown of Christiania' in the middle of Copenhagen (link to a short description of Christiania: Christianiabikes.dk) which claims to be the first to manufacture this praticular kind of bike.

(A gallery of pictures from Christiania - whose most famous street is 'Pusher Street'...... https://www.google.dk/search?q=chris...w=1100&bih=599)

Unlike the other years, it seems like the press/paparazzis could not find F+M and children on their private summer vacation this year. It's just nice for them to have some private time together, but I must be honest and admit that I start to miss the family a little bit

I really want to see the little Josephine and Vincent soon - they have grown so fast lately

Princess Marie has one of these bikes too and there's a photo around somewhere to prove it! They are good for ferrying kids and dogs around!

I think both Mary & Frederik and Joachim & Marie has Nihola bikes, I can't remember having seen them on actual Christiania bikes.

According to BB's cover, the Crown Prince family have been in the USA as part of their summer holiday. Does anyone have more information on this?

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #29, 2012.
Fantastisk ferie i bjergene - Fantastic holiday in the mountains.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

After having spend some days in Tisvilde, M&F and their children flew to Seattle, Washington.
They didn't look at the city but went on to a "secret location" in the mountains and here they stayed for two weeks.

Frederik had to leave his family some days early as he had to return to the opening of the general assembly of the International Tennis Federation.
However Mary and her children, and also Caroline and Peter Heering and their children landed in Copenhagen Sunday, so it's presumed the two couples went on holiday together.

There are plenty of opportunities for an active holiday in that part of USA, with rafting, hiking and it is assumed riding as well.

- My guess is that M&F are now in Trend, until they join the rest of the family in Gråsten tomorrow forenoon.

Thank you Muhler for the details. Do you know roughly when they left for the United States? Do you think we might get pictures at some point or was this a total secret visit.

Towards the end of June, IMO. They were supposedly a fortnight in the US, Frederik returned a couple of days before Mary because of his royal duties and besides, they don't travel on the same plane.
Billed-Bladet doesn't have much to go on and since TRH managed to keep the trip secret I for one doubt that we'll be getting any pictures, unless of course they decide otherwise !

Thank you for the translation, as always . It seems that the family wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet on the West Coast of the United States. There are certainly many beautiful places to choose from, so I hope they came away satisfied.

I guess with Prince Christian starting school soon (on August 20th I believe) they are not going to spend any time at all in France this year. Too bad! I imagine that at this point Mary is settling into a routine in Copenhagen to smooth Prince Christian's back-to-school time....

It's the end of the summer vacation for the CP family I assume. Christian back to school and Mary starts work on August 15 in Denmark while Frederik is regent.
