They are very often observed going by ferry. It saves them at least two hours on the road than if they were taking the route by bridge further south.

It's basically one hour to the ferry. About an hour on the ferry, depending which one it is and the route. And an hour to Trend.

The lounge they are sitting in, is the regular passenger lounge. Nothing special there.

It appears to me Frederik and Christian went by themselves. Presumably Mary and the rest went Friday or Sunday.

I do find it very odd that Se & HÝr publish these photos, because they would lose hands down in a trial regarding breach of privacy.

It’s a genuinely charming photo of Mary!

Congratulations to the world's best Mary. I hope she has a lovely corona birthday and that Frederik and the children have kissed and hugged her all day.

When I see Mary, I often think of Queen Margrethe's advice to young Crown Prince Frederik: Choose your wife with your heart, but of course it isn’t forbidden to use your head as well

I think Frederik listened. I don’t think there are many, if any, in Denmark who don’t agree with Frederik's choice in love and wife. You don’t need much strength in your glasses to see how happy and confident she makes our future King (and he her), and the family-life they have created together.

Here's a long, but actually good, trip down memory lane on the occasion of Mary's birthday. With 30 good pictures!
It has required big strength, and big love, to go through that life change Mary did at the time of the marriage with our Crown Prince.

Next is the 50 years!
Exciting if there will be any official celebration now that the Queen can celebrate 50 years on the throne the month before. IIRC Mary's 40th birthday was not officially marked for the same reason. Not that it shall be compared to the 50th anniversary celebration our future King had, but man, I still remember his entire week-long 50th anniversary celebration as wonderful on all fronts! A celebration in his very own way and side by side with the people. I do hope we also get the opportunity to celebrate our future Queen next year.

A thing I have noticed about Mary in the photos we have seen of her over the past year, is how relaxed she is looking.

I think this year, with a break from the limelight and where the CP-family have been able to live a life that is as close to a normal family-life the circumstances after all allow, has been invigorating for Mary in particular perhaps.
In contrast to Frederik Mary has only lived this life in the public eye for some seventeen years and I think she sometimes wish she could completely anonymous again. That would be only natural IMO.

Whether that is the case or not, their rest from public duties, will be needed, because M&F are going to be very busy!

It is no secret that the government plans for post-Corona and that includes commerce and export offensives abroad.
Economically DK has suffered considerably less than so many other countries, but there has been a serious dent in the treasury, so there will be a lot of focus on Danish export. Not least to USA, where the new administration has ambitious plans for sustainable energy solutions, a major Danish export field.
M&F usually play a very prominent role in help promoting Danish businesses and export, so I predict that we are going to see a lot of M&F already from the autumn this year and certainly next year. Basically as much as it is practically possible to begin planning and arranging already now.

Mary's inner beauty really does shine through these days. I've enjoyed reading your insights about Mary as well as the hopeful anticipation of things to come for both M&F. I'm looking forward to watching as they step back into an even more dynamic presence than before as the world continues to recover from covid. I must also say, with only 15 days into our new US administration, it does feel good to see we are once again rejoining the world community. Hopefully business will be better (and greener) than ever!

BB reports that the CP family is currently not residing at Amalienborg.
https://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelig...adt-koebenhavn

This is week #7, and that is the school winter holiday.
It is presumed that M&F have gone to another residence, probably Trend. But Kancellihuset at Fredensborg is also an option.
It is most unlikely they would have left DK, not least considering how much heat celebs who have went for holidays abroad have been met with.

The weather in Denmark has been fantastic the last few weeks. Clear frosty weather with sun, snow and blue skies. Pure wellness for the soul.
So it has been a good start to the winter holidays for F&M and children and many others with good opportunities for tobogganing and ice skating on the lake. You can ski in Denmark, but we don’t have any mountains, so it’s really not that fun...
Tonight, up to 15 cm of snow has fallen on Zealand. Unfortunately, it looks like the weather from tomorrow will be plus degrees, rain and gray weather. Let’s hope the snow can stay a few more days now it’s the Danish school children’s winter holiday this week.

The family enjoy their winter holiday week:

"Snow and ice set the ingenuity in motion, and a frozen lake turned into an ice hockey rink. After preparation, it became an alternative ice hockey match .... without skates and with sticks as poles and an old flat football as puck �� ⁣ ⁣ - The Crown Prince Couple"

It’s definitely the hunting lodge in Trend with the small lake out front. The lodge is located in North Jutland which got up to 20 cm yesterday according to local news.

This is a wonderful and inspiring little winter holiday post/videos from our Crown Prince family!

For those of you who do not understand Danish: Christian, Isabella, Vincent and Josephine are in full swing clearing the lake of snow so they can play icehockey with what they have in the lodge.. suddenly a slightly short of breath Isabella stops and says: "Mom, aren’t you going to help?" I love it. Privately, they are just like any other families. In video 2 Mary also films Frederik standing next to her cheering and of course acting as the family’s icehockey judge.

I have respect and love for how F&M manage their roles and share these little everyday moments with us - there is no doubt they really want us. They are where we are - also in a more difficult time. The clips the Crown Prince Couple are posting provide unity and inspiration. Out in nature, use your imagination and play. The nature is the best playground. And the CP family is a outdoor family and very fond of the nature.

A very cute video. Love seeing the siblings enjoying the ice and snow. Love these little glimpses of the family unit, including Grace dashing through and Frederik keeping a washful eye on the 4.

Thanks Roskilde for the Danish translations, always helpful and appreciated.

They look like they are having a wonderful time. Better than an expensive resort. Thanks Roskilde for the Danish translation.

Thanks Eya

Grace always by her side.
I think Mary might be rehearsing for upcoming equestrian events. And what better time than now during this quiet and long lockdown.

Riding has really become a family thing here in the corona time - how wonderful it is to see them support each other in all things including their hobbies and Frederik always accompanies his girls to ride horses and lookout for them.

Except for the boys.. seems like they leave all that horse thing to their parents and sisters

I had to do a double take when I saw that picture of Isabella on horseback. She looks like an adult young woman and not a teenage girl. They grow up so quickly!!
