Frederik looks great in his shirt - I'm not a fan of such a style normally but Frederik manages to make it work!

"Frederik showed himself on stage , and was greeted by a jubilant of a huge crowd of people."

Well, according to the comments to the video, some have the impression that Frederik hadn't only been drinking water...
And that's fine.

I must admit I share that impression and that's fine. That's what festivals are for. So here's to you Frederik.

ADDED: You be the judge, here is a good quality video: https://www.dr.dk/musik/festival/se-...af-maabende-af
Every paper worth mentioning has this video this morning.

So very funny, Frederik is certainly enjoying the day and wonder if he is willing to share what he is drinking with all of us here......I could use a real stiff drink right now......

The second picture on this Instagram is a wow.

Glad Frederik was able to enjoy the festival with friends

Tomorrow he will be in Aarhus to participate in activities as patron of The 2018 Sailing World Championships

There have been a lot of comments on Frederik's... eeh... merry... appearance on stage yesterday.
Everyone and everybody have voiced their opinion. Some saying that it was a planned PR stunt by Frederik (nonsense IMO). A few saying that it was perhaps a little over the top to appear on stage (merry or not) like an ordinary celeb. Few have any problems as such with it, because that's basically just Frederik being Frederik. i.e. folksy with the people. - And as one commentator points out; He has Mary as a contrast. She is very regal and maintains, so to speak the, not aloofness but dignity of the DRF, so that Frederik can get away with something like this and even be cheered for it.

Practically all are in agreement that this is something Frederik can do this while he is still a Crown Prince. And most are also in agreement that this will not damage Frederik's popularity, on the contrary in fact. Perhaps especially among the under 35ish. - But being ancient myself I don't feel I can comment on that. That I'll leave to those here on TRF in that age-range.

The prevailing consensus among the comments I have glanced on Instagram and so on, have been a mix of chuckles and bless him to "he will be the best king ever!" Very few have been negative.

It's most interesting in fact! And I doubt Frederik would have gotten away with prior to Mary. And had it been back in the 90's people would IMO again start talking about Joachim perhaps being better suited as king.
But Frederik has earned a lot of personal credits, especially in the past ten years.

I say this somewhat tongue-in-cheek but I thought you Danes liked your party boy heirs/kings, their unflappable consorts and spirited kids.

Well, it's a relief to know that the DRF won't become boring now that PH is gone.

Starting with Frederik stepping up in the wardrobe department, that print shirt ain't cutting it.

He'll get there eventually.

Here is an excerpt from today's editorial in the tabloid BT:

Wat it bold or stupid? It was certainly genuine and it is once again a part in painting a very honest and likable portrait of our future king of Denmark.
Are there anyone who will chose to be appalled at Crown Prince Frederik's sudden entre at SmukFest (the festival) Thursday evening? Definitely. Are there anyone who will think it was inappropriate and stupid? No doubt. But that will probably be the minority and not at all the generation for whom the Crown Prince will be king. Most Danes love the folksy Crown Prince and see him as a genuine and loving person of flesh and blood. A good and loving father. A devoted husband. But also a little shy, sometimes a little awkward and this Thursday night under the beech-trees in Skanderborg also a little tipsy Crown Prince.
How can you not love him to bits?
We here at BT hope that also applies to the Queen and the Crown Princess who may spat out their morning coffee when they saw the pictures.

Var det modigt eller dumt? Det var i hvert fald ægte og endnu engang med til at tegne et meget ærligt og sympatisk billede af vores kommende konge af Danmark.
Er der nogen, der vil vælge at blive forarget over kronprins Frederiks pludselige entre på SmukFest torsdag aften? Helt sikkert. Er der nogen, der vil synes, at det var upassende og dumt? Uden tvivl. Men det vil formentlig være de færreste og slet ikke den generation, som Kronprinsen bliver konge for. De fleste danskere elsker den folkelige Kronprins og ser ham som et ægte og ærligt menneske af kød, blod og tårer. En god og kærlig far. En dedikeret ægtemand. Men også en anelse genert, nogle gange lidt kejtet og denne torsdag aften under bøgetræerne i Skanderborg også en lidt småberuset kronprins. Hvordan kan man andet end at knus-elske ham? Vi her på B.T. håber, at det også gælder Dronningen og Kronprinsessen, som måske har fået morgenkaffen galt i halsen, da billederne nåede dem.

It is fortunate for the DRF that the Crown Prince appears as he doens't have to cover up his true self - the Danes like him, just as he is.
The many comments which the pictures from the Nephews concert has caused are overwhelmingly positive. And the image he is helping draw to the world is of a small safe kingdom, where the Prince can walk freely and party among and with the people, is nothing less that a fantastic advertizing campaign for our small fairy-tale country.

Det er heldigt for Kongehuset, at Kronprinsen virker, som om han ikke behøver at dække over sit sande jeg - danskerne kan lide ham, præcis som han er. De mange kommentarer, som billederne fra Nephews koncert har affødt, er entydigt positive. Og billedet, han er med til at tegne ude i verden af et lille trygt kongerige, hvor prinsen frit kan færdes og feste iblandt og med folket, er intet mindre end en fantastisk reklamekampagne for vores lille eventyrlige land.

Read the whole editorial here: https://www.bt.dk/debat/b.t.-mener-rock-on-frede

BTW: Frede is the Danish term of endearment for Frederik.

I also think it’s worked very much in his favour that he’s been open with the Danes about who he is as a person, not just who he is as a royal. He’s given several lengthy interviews, many shorter ones, and he speaks relatively frequently and informally with reporters and regular people about a wide ranging set of topics, including various struggles he’s had and what he sees as his own weaknesses. So people can see he’s a multifaceted man with many good qualities but that he’s also not trying to pass himself off as perfect. There’s nowhere to go but down with perfection.

Frederik continued mingling backstage with the various bands on Friday as well: https://www.bt.dk/royale/kronprinsen...med-succesband

https://www.bt.dk/musikfestivaler/ef...prins-frederik


This is basically mainly about the sailing championships in Aarhus, but while there the BT journalist couldn't help ask into Frederik's stage appearance at the festival Thursday.
He declined to answer in a friendly, polite, quiet but no nonsense way, as is evident from the video.
He answered:
"I'd rather tell about how it is to be here (in Aarhus). Because this is where we are now. It's one of the biggest championships we have ever had in Denmark. A world championships for the Olympic class. And that's what we are here for now. So ask about that, or we walk (away)."

Jeg vil hellere fortælle, hvordan det er at være her. For det er her, vi er nu. Det er et af de største stævner, vi nogensinde har afholdt i Danmark. Et VM for OL-klassen. Og det er det, vi er for nu. Så spørg om det, ellers går vi,«

The sentence in bold is at 0:10-0:14 in the video.

I think this should wrap up Frederik's appearance on stage.

https://www.bt.dk/musikfestivaler/sm...t-faktisk-ikke

A BT article about the event-organizers not knowing he would go on stage.
What's interesting however is the poll.
People are asked whether it was cool (fedt) he went on stage or whether it was embarrassing (pinligt).
You look at the figures yourself.

BT is a tabloid that is read by a fairly broad segment of the population, so I'll say the poll is a reasonable indication.

That was at Skagen, Polyesco. And their Australian friends sailed to Skagen to join them. The Handwerks also joined them there.

The whole party stayed at the summer cottage owned by the Skeel family, who were perhaps there as well.

The CP family appears to have spend almost a week at Skagen.
Frederik was spotted dining with some friends at Ruths Hotel

The CP family was spotted dining at Skagen Tennis Club.
A more intimate and discreet place to dine, it seems:

And Frederik was seen sailing on the Australian boat, presumably moored in Skagen harbor:

- It's not a large harbor and not really a marina, but a fishing-port taken over by small yachts and sailing boats during the summer months. And that odd mix is a part of the charm.

I see Isabella is holding the indispensable phone.

I guess we who live today will be labelled Homo Phonicus by future anthropologists.
