According to TV2 News - TV 2 Kongelig - Frederik og Mary højt oppe - the new helipad on the Rigshospitalet means that they save about 45 minutes when transporting patients. Before the helicopters had to land in a nearby park.

The platform was donated by Mærsk McKinney Møller - the elderly gentleman in Dazzling's pic 7.

Will Frederik and Mary be doing any tours around Denmark like they did when they were first married?

It would be really nice to see them out and about with the Danish people again visiting different cities and towns.

You mean instead of the queen?
Don't know - perhaps it was thought fitting since F&M twice within two years have used the facilities at this particular hospital ;)

I hope they will - probably during the summer and using the royal yacht - just as queen Margrethe has for many years :smile:

I didnt know the queen was suppose to be opening it. Well, yes does make sense if the cp couple opened it. Mærsk McKinney Møller did good by donating for the helipad, that was nice:smile:

two pictures of Frederik & Mary in the hospital - isifa gallery

I don't know if the queen was supposed to do it - probably not. Perhaps Mærsk McKinney really wanted the CP couple to do it? Judging from pictures (also from the new opera) he seems to have a good rapport with them :smile:

carlota 11-02-2007 02:11 PM

thanks for the pics! mary looks beautiful, the outfit looks much nicer this time, perhaps the shirt makes the difference...

who is mckinney? is he english or danish?

this picture, btw, looks frightening since there seems to be no protection at the sides of the helipad... https://i238.photobucket.com/albums/f...5/65400321.jpg

Though I have alwayes liked the english a lot - I don't think they ars so generous as to finance helipads for hospitals in Denmark ;o)

He is danish. He owns the biggest shippingcompany in the world. The companys webside is her:

A.P. Moller-Maersk Group

Under the menu "our history" you can read more about the man - Mærsk Mckinny Møller.

He's the same 'guy' who has this habit of bearing gifts to Copenhagen - Amalienhaven (Slots- og Ejendomsstyrelsen - Amalienborg and Amaliehaven - Amaliehaven), the new opera etc. ;) - and now the helipad on top of Rigshospitalet.

RachelD 11-02-2007 05:53 PM

I'd say he has some great habits! :biggrin:

If it was in order to get a career there, I can warmly recomend the company. Not only does Mærsk Mckinny Møller have this habit of giving the inhabitants of Copenhagen - including the Royal Famely - monumental gifts. The company has an excelent personnel policy and offers great career opportunities in an international setting.

Danish Royal watchers have a few short articles from different sources as well as a few pitures.

Needles to say, it says absolutely nothing about him but quite a bit about those who find it necessary to negtaively exhume anothers impediment, no matter how minor or severe.

Again, I don't see how it can be noted as a "problem" when the man still delivers his speeches and socially converses.

I would definitely classify his inabilty to express himself clearly in public as a problem, a big problem. He is a public person representative of his country. One of the few basic requirements for this job is to speak properly and clearly, what kind of image does It give when people don't understand what he is trying to say or that the crown prince looks nervous, insecure and can't stop moving while answering questions?

I also think this problem could be over come so why It didn't still? he is not a young boy he is a 40 years old man that known all his life that he is going to be king (and It's getting closer and closer) so what does he waits for?
