Mary as Patron The Children's Choir of the Royal Danish Academy of Music
 
Today The Crown Prince Couple along with Prince Christian, John Donaldson and Susan Moody attended the The Children's Choir of the Royal Danish Academy of Music at the Royal Danish Conservatorium of Music at Esajas Kirke.


Quote:

The Children's Choir of the Royal Danish Academy of Music was founded in 1978. It is an internationally recognized concert choir, performing alone or with other choirs and orchestras. The choir is also used by the students of music for their rehearsals. It strives for balancing the artistic, educational and social aspects of teaching and singing. The repertoire is broad, ranging from folk songs and hymns to major classical works and new music. The choir records cd's and has toured all over the world.

GT, Thanks for the info. Any idea why Frederik decided to attend this event? Dont get me wrong, I though it was great to see him

Her_Majesty 12-08-2007 02:55 PM

I could write the same message again and again when I see Christian:
"Awww! he is so cute!" or "He is dressed in such a cute way!"
I have to say.. I am just in love with this charming little boy. ;)

Btw, I like Mary's new hairdo!

I would assume for two reasons: One, to support his wife, Mary. Two, it is the holiday's so why not make it a family event; Christian seemed to enjoy himself along with the rest of the family.:smile:

On a slightly different note, I'm glad Mary decided to cut her bangs again. Now that her hair is at shoulder length, with her new bangs she resembles Katie Holmes Cruise

marmi 12-08-2007 05:02 PM

Wow - Its great to see the three together. I love Christian's little jacket and Mary looked great too, although it is a lot of black. Love her fringe too!

Regina 12-08-2007 05:15 PM

I like Mary's hairdo too. She looks even more aristocratic, imo.
Thanks for the pics! Christian is such a lovely and engaging little boy! :wub:

I can see Caroline is present. Why is she there and not Mary's new lady in waiting? Does Mary have two ladies in waiting?

Nice pics! And great to see the three of them together. What more can be said, Christian looked adorable and his parents looked nice to. I liked Mary's dress but her hairstyle I'm a little undecided on.

Currier 12-08-2007 09:59 PM

Loved seeing the family gathering. Couldn't get a good view of Mary's dress but the jeweled belt/cummerbund looked like what previously adorned a white evening dress worn at a Japanese reception several years ago and at the wedding of a friend. Bangs and a new hairstyle are fine but we'll see how well they go with a tiara. Good Luck Mary.

HRH Prince Christian is such a fashionably dressed little man. He looked very 'suave' in his outfit..hehe.

He seems like such a well behaved little fellow. I feel he'll grow up to be a good example of what it is to be modest and kind hearted.

carlota 12-09-2007 06:18 AM

mary looked superb, black does suit her! the detail of teh belt looked gorgeous. did she have a haircut?

i'm not sure about christian. he does look cute and it's great they took him with them, but perhaps that tweed jacket is a bit pretentious...

Crownprince Frederik seems to be a little bit absent. (Take a look at Soeren Steffen's pictures.)

May I ask the Danish members of the TRF:
Is Lucia a tradition in Danmark, too? I just know it from Sweden!

When was this picture taken?

To Patty: Maybe he was tired? He looks a little bit uninterested - and that is so sad.

About her new hairstyle:
Her new hairstyle reminds me of the hairstyle of her visit to Germany in February 2006.
There she put her hair up and she had a side parting (a strong wave in her face, which looked very stern). You can find a picture (Feb. 2006) here: https://www.polfoto.dk/polfoto/ImageH...Id=1&handle=-1

What a lovely photograph of the family where the choir is serenading them, led by the child depicting Santa Lucia. The glow from the candlelight is wonderful.

I'm digging Mary's new -do, and liked her outfit (the jeweled belt was nicer with the black dress than the other occasions I've seen her wear it). A hit this time! The bangs/fringe make her look younger and less severe.

Christian should have go through a very hard work to stand still so quite in a concert! He is been trained from a early age to be King and he is really up to it!Been so quite in a concert or in his sister Christianning is a really brave conquest.

Great to see Isabella walking after a long time out of the public eye. She's cute and quite a personality already. Christian definitely gets cuter with age. Both, especially Isabella, are still quite young for such an event. There certainly is some effort behind it to keep them sit still and have them behave well enough in public. As a consequence especially Fred looks quite tense at times, and the smiles are more forced than relaxed. But still kudos to them that they are brave enough to bring the children along even though it's a trying task.

It makes sense, especially since it is a children's choir. I'm sure that Christian and Isabella loved seeing the "big kids" performing. Maybe it will inspire an interest in music in the prince and princess.

Well at least Isabella's cloak is in a vibrant red as seen on the Bunte galary of the concert:

That little red coat is very cute! I am not surprised that Isabella had a difficult time sitting still during the concert. She's not even two yet. I can't think of any child her age that could sit still for a long period of time. She's a very normal toddler.

Christian is developing into a handsome young boy, he's getting there. I always thought he was a slow starter, like his dad.

It wasn't Isabella's best night but she's still very young to get through such an event.

It's great to see those two regulary at "normal" events out and about, as the kids they are and not brought to perfection for a rare occasion in public.

avrilo 12-14-2009 08:14 AM

Whose car do you think this is?. I remember they had a VW Touareg, then I saw Mary in a red SUV when she took the children to visit P. Henrik in May, but this is more like a minivan, I can't identify the maker, I thought it was subaru, but I 've checked theri website and I cant recognize it

AAAAAnyway, I loved Isabella carrying mum's flowers and why wasn't her best night?
Christian all formal, shaking hands properly was wonderful too, Mary looked truly happy

In fact, there are some pictures with Fred with one of Caroline's daugter's on his lap (if i'm not mistaken).

They are already so big and they behaved both very good :smile:. I think that this kind of event is very good to "training" Christian & Isabella and to get to use them with public attention.

And it was good Caroline had brought her daughter there cause then Christian & Isabella had friend with.

How cold are there in Denmark right now? I saw that Christian had no scarf and it made me thought that in Denmark must be much warmer than in Estonia :-)

What do you mean he is a slow starter. The children behaved very well. I do not understand how you can say she did not have a good night. She sat very still and did not cause any problems from the pictures.

I really like this decision that Frederik and Mary have made also. It makes them seem much more approachable and real as a family, which can only help in maintaining support for the Royal Family in the future imo.

Duke of Marmalade 12-14-2009 04:31 PM

Yes the kids were very well behaved but to me Isabella looked a bit lost and quite tired on her mothers lap, sucking on her tumb, not the usual quirky character that she is, interacting with her environment. She's still very young to go through such an event.

I think Christian was a slow starter, like his dad, in terms of being approachable. He now starts to open up a bit, is less reserved. I think Christian in particular has made a huge step, when he was smaller he came across as difficult to handle, throwing tantrums etc, now he has grown and is more relaxed, even sharing his toys with his sister :smile:

UserDane 12-14-2009 06:01 PM

I'm a bit surprised by your perception of Christian. Throwing tantrums? I think I have seen him crying once or twice; he's been seen a lot in public and he's only four! He is one of the best behaved small royal kids I have ever seen in public! He was barely two at Isabella's christening and so incredibly mild and sweet during the whole long ceremony.
I was actually pleased to see the first pictures of him crying (or 'throwing tantrums which I suppose all toddlers do then) - it just showed that he is 'a normal child' so to speak.

You are the first one I have heard who have the perception that he is difficult to handle. I have the exact opposite impression and I do think that he is perceived as a quite sweet tempered and well behaved young child. I think he is, for example, very much easier to handle than his two older cousins Felix and Nikolai (definitely Nikolai) were at the same age, just my impression.

They are wonderful children. They seem to be so full of life and so sweet. I am like you UserDane he is always so well behaved. We have seen him trying his parents a couple of times and they are there immediately to put a stop to his behavior. They are acting like normal children and I think that is wonderful. We are seeing them grow up and not just in a planned photo shoot where everyone is on their best behavior. They are out and about in the public and seem to have wonderful manners. I think Isabella may have been tired last night. She did not act out, sat quietly in CPM's lap sucking her thumb which is quite normal for her age. If I remember correctly they were both very good last year for the same event. If she had interacted as you said DoM she would have been called down by her parents. She acted exactly as was expected of her. I know personally of many children their age that cannot sit still for 2 minutes much less a whole concert. That takes a lot of work and patience on the part of parents and a nanny to get them to that stage. Mary had packed the little suitcase with toys for them both. Smart Mom!

M&F seem to be great parents. They spend so much time with the children. I admire them both for putting so much time in their family life. We have seen this many, many times since the little Prince was born.

Duke of Marmalade 12-15-2009 04:36 AM

I had perceived Christian as the typical first born boy who would naturally get and get used to loads of attention in the family (similar to Prince William) - I don't think he was too pleased with Isabella being born forcing him to share everything. But as I said, he has grown a lot and become more at ease.

But he is not the first born in the RF, what about Nikolai and Felix?, neither was William, there was Peter Philips, maybe the attention you refer to is because they are the heir of the heir.

I bet that in private the one who steals the show is Isabella, the only girl among a bunch of boys!

Question for a danish
why a girl has a hear piece with four candles in it? Is it like an advent wreath?

It is in celebration of Santa Lucia and takes place each year on 13th December. you can read about the custom here - Saint Lucy's Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - where it is called Saint Lucy.
In Denmark, it is celebrated in most schools, for example. I believe it is even more widespread in Sweden.

He is the first born to Mary and Frederik, any first born is bound to get a shed load of love and attention, he is the heir to the heir aswell which makes him even more special. :flowers:

I'm not from Denmark but I found this information:

13th December is Lucia Day (it's same in Estonia too):

According to the Catholic Church Lucia is the saint of light.

She is celebrated on the night between the 12th and the 13th of December, especially in schools, retirement homes, hospitals and other institutions all over Denmark, with small girl processions and traditional singing.

Legend has it that Lucia, in order to keep her hands free, wore a wreath with candles on her head so that she could (illegally) feed the poor Christians on the hide in the catacombs of ancient Rome.

Mary didn't attended this year event. Last year she was heavily pregnant, now she's on vacations. Pity, it could be nice family outing with children.

As it's been a comment from two years ago, I think we shouldn't start discussing it again and keep the thread on topic instead!

The children look so sweet! :smile: Is that Vincent with CP Frederik?

Artemisia 12-16-2012 02:53 PM

The children are just adorable!
They all look extremely happy and relaxed; Prince Vincent is the star, he even (almost) manages to outshine Bella.

Yes, in most picture Prince Frederick is holding his younger son.

Ah, thanks for telling me; its just that the twins look so alike! ;)

Aww I love that Mary took the whole family to church today. It must have been a tradition.

Truly delightful pictures. The pictures of Vincent with his big brother Christian and big sister Isabella on the stairs is marvelous. Little Josephine appears to be a mommy's girl :) F+M's children always look so happy. Look at Isabella's face in these pictures

Little Josephine is a mirror of the then little Princess Isabella, when she was almost 2 years and attending this concert :)

This must be a tradition for the Crown Prince Family and the Heerings to attend together :) That´s a lovely tradition :)

Love!!!! One of my CP Family favorite events. So happy to see Vincent and Josephine join the group this year!

olili 12-16-2012 05:06 PM

There are no photos of Princess Marie Chantal and Olympia because they went there on Friday.

polyesco 12-16-2012 06:18 PM

Nice family outing.
Vincent looked ready to run out the door. Very attentive older siblings Christian and Isabella.
Josephine looks like she is wearing Isabella's dress from when she was younger.

Mary and Frederik look like they divide and conquer to try to keep control of their 4 ;)

Yes this dress, right? :smile:

Josephine really is a true copy of big sister Bella.

UserDane 12-16-2012 07:04 PM

Thanks for all the pictures :flowers:
Nice to see the family out in 'full force'.

From his last two appearances, Vincent appears to have taken a leaf out of Bella's book of how to act entertainingly. These two alone must be keeping their parents on their toes :smile:

Tarlita 12-16-2012 07:04 PM

Just love all the photos. Must be great fun for Christian and Isabella to have gorgeous little playmates to look after. This looks to be the first time they received gifts at the choir. The organisers just couldn't help themselves it seems. And Christian has a great laugh with his good friend Emily Heering in the row behind. And Vincent has such long blonde hair. Don't remember Christian having hair that long at the same age.

princess gertrude 12-16-2012 07:12 PM

Love seeing these children all together. They are all very handsome, but just enough of a difference in each of them. Can't wait to see them all grow over the years.
