I was wondering if we would get any pictures, it's nice to get pictures from these events at the palace.

Frederik looks tired but Mary more tired IMO. Btw, I think Mary looks tanned.

The interior of the room is lovely, love the painting and the wall color.

The private music/reading room is on the next floor.

Good heavens, what will they come up with next? :ermm:

The PIR-alarm in the corner is interesting. This ain't a cheap model!

Im pretty sure they tidy up a bit before receiving guests, books stacked, everything else in the nearest closet or under the couch lol ;)

I really like that they are using their residence more and more for these official dinners.

Frederik has been interviewed to a golf magazine and there he says, he and Mary will go to the Olympics in Rio.
Frederik as a member of the IOC will be present at the opening ceremony.
Kronprinsesse Mary og kronprins Frederik tager til OL i Brasilien | BILLED-BLADET

He adds: "When the opening ceremony is over I will focus on visiting as many athletes as possible. Hopefully I'll also get around to as many as the big events (as possible), which for me is also golf and tennis.
The Crown Princess will come along for the opening, but the children won't come, even though they was of the opinion they could easily skip the first week in school".

Mary is very much expected to accompany Frederik to swimming events where DK is well represented. And Mary usually cheer Australian athletes as well at the Olympics.

polyesco 06-21-2016 07:50 AM

:previous: very nice. I'm sure the Olympics will always be a special time for Frederik and Mary. They always have a great time cheering on the Danish athletes. Shame the kids won't be able to go, when does school start? It is quite a long trip

Frederik it seems will be staying a bit longer, not only supporting the Danish athletes at the Olympics but also Danish Industry.
On August 15 he will be attending a reception for Danish Sustainability Days. The Confederation of Danish Industry, State of Green and VisitDenmark invite Danish companies and organizations to become part of*the Danish Pavilion at*Ipanema*Beach*in Rio.

Thanks Muhler and Polyeco :flowers:

The Olympics definitely seems to be a very special time for Frederik and Mary. They met during the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and has been to every Olympics together ever since ... I like that.

Nice they attended again this year in Brazil.
The children's last vacation day is the 9th August, so it's quite clear they aren't going along this year when it's such a long travel. Then mom and dad can enjoy a romantic week in twosomeness.

Frederik will (as IOC Member) very likely be at the Olympics most of the 2-3 weeks while Mary most likely will stay with Frederik for the first week and then travel home to the children. As we saw in Beijing in 2008.

When you follow certain royals members who working hard, it can be frustrating when there are still some people who believe they never do anything. Fortunately, it's pretty widespread among the people now how busy the Crown Prince Couple (and Queen are). The CP-couple do also have official duties almost every day.

They have been running a busy schedule recently, and now just returned from a packed business visit in U.S., I actually expected a quiet week for F&M now, but no. Again a week with official events from Monday morning to Saturday evening. I didn't borthered to count, but I fast skimmed the calender: Has Mary had 8 days off (or actually just without official duties) in the last two months?

Anyway, I guess a lovely quiet and long Autumn holiday in the cottage in Trend is needed for the Crown Prince Family :)

Yes, Roskilde.

It'll be interesting whether the PM will inform QMII and Frederik at the State Council that he intends to call a general election. Either because he might just as well clear the air and take it now or because he will face a vote of no confidence in the Parliament very shortly. - Both options are IMO unlikely - now - but it will sure be interesting to listen to his speech Tuesday!
- So for once the cameras may not be focusing that much on the DRF trying to "stay awake". As is tradition. :tongue:

"Crown Prince and Princess attended the tour and so here closer look at the facilities, met people and got told about the work of Danish Industry.
Danish Industry is a private business association, representing 10,000 companies in Denmark, which employs 1 million. employees. Danish Industry members manufactures, distributes and trades in goods, services and advice."

Muhler 10-11-2016 12:57 PM

That's probably a meeting prior to another trip on behalf of Danish commerce. - And (hopefully) also an opportunity for DI to show their appreciation.
As such it's only natural M&F got a tour of the office. I believe it's new.

After all DI will be working closely with M&F for many years to come.

And in a sense I can understand if the court didn't put that up front in their calendar. Because some people criticize the DRF for being too close with Danish commerce. And that is of course nonsense in several ways. Not least because one of the main jobs of the DRF is to help promote Danish trade and export. - And as such help create jobs and income for all of DK.

This is one of the things that makes CP Frederik and CP Mary so hugely popular and respected as they are.

Today Frederik and Mary privately visited the homeless in Copenhagen :flowers:

"Today, the Crown Prince couple visited the Morning Café for the Homeless in Copenhagen. In 2008, the Morning Café was the recipient of the Crown Prince Couple's award."

To translate just 3 of the already many VERY positive comments from the Danes on the DRF's Facebook site:


1.
"Once I thought that no person (s) could ever be able to discharge such a large future successions in these modern times. I must just say that with our Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary that thought is completely shot away! They do it more than excellent - they are involved and interested in all events, classes and Dane's life in their own natural, love-filled and charming way .. ❤❤❤
They will be a fantastic Regent Couple .. and I as a Dane I'm mega proud of the Crown Prince couple as the DRF's present and future.

Ps. Note this is not written in the official calendar.. today's visit to the homeless is a desire! Not a duty .. "


2.
"So fantastic that our beloved Crown Prince Couple takes the time to meet the homeless. And not just meeting with a lot of fancy bodyguards and so on. But come over and give them their hands, sit down and talk with them as equal human beings ❤ They have my utmost and biggest respect ☺ That they do not feel too fine for meeting "those at the bottom of society" and give them their hand, listen to them.

(And love that HRH Frederik also greets the dog)"


3.
"WHEN !!!!!! Can we please call them our Regent Couple ??? I can't barely wait. They keep on impressing... They really get out and see the real world. Respect, Frederik and Mary."

»She has not only lived up to the expectations. She has surpassed them.«

»You can be a glowing royal supporter - or a strong anti royal - but very few will disagree that Crown Princess Mary is doing and has done well.«


Tomorrow, Denmark's Crown Princess Mary is presented Berlingske's Honorary Award 2017 in recognition of her remarkable work in the Danish community's service.

The serious newspaper Berlingske's Thomas Larsen paints a large portrait of the Crown Princess, who use her role unique to support people who need attention. And not only have lived up to the towering high expectations. She has surpassed them.

Article: "The Crown Princess who follows her heart."
»Hun har ikke blot levet op til forventningerne. Hun har overgået dem«'

"The qualities Berlingske wanted to honor the Crown Princess for is all about the special personal and social commitment she has shown throughout her work. Crown Princess Mary's look for and commitment to the socially disadvantaged and challenged groups is without doubt completely unique, whatever yardstick you choose," said Mads Bryde Andersen.

Then he outlined several of the Crown Princess's exposures in organizations such as Children's Day, Children, Youth & Sorrow, The Mothers help, The Christmas Seal Foundation, The National Association for Mental Health, The National Organization of Women's Crisis Centre and the Mental Health Foundation.

"By her person and her dedication serve the Crown Princess as a rolemodel not only for other role models, but for everyone with a commitment to the Dansh society we live in. Dear Crown Princess Mary: The Berlingske fund addresses a warm thank you to You for this great and disinterested contribution to the society and especially to it's weakest. And we thank you because you as a selection of this will receive the Berlingske Foundation's Honorary Award in 2017," completed Mads Bryde Andersen, before the Crown Princess walked to stage to applause.

The ceremony and CP Mary's speech was well-provided in both main tv channel's news tonight. Berlingske Fund stated: The work Crown Princess Mary performs is far greater than you would expect. Much less work could do it. She is very trustworthy and therefore we assigned her our Honorary award.

Yes tonight, CP Frederik and CP Mary participate in dinner in connection with the Prize of Honour 2017. Very unfortunately, there is no press access.

Great words to CP Mary from newspaper BT's leader column:

"BT means: It is an absolute good choice that the Berlingske's Honorary Award this year went to Crown Princess Mary.

You can feel that she has her heart with her in everything she does. Whether you experience her in a refugee camp in Kenya or a schoolyard in Copenhagen, you is impressed by how present she is. She's never in a hurry to move on, but always has time to listen to those she visits.

Crown Princess Mary's social work and her winning personality has the last ten years grown to become one of the best reasons to preserve the Danish royal family.

(...)"

That is rich - and deserved praise indeed.

However, one should perhaps point out the the tabloid BT and the serious newspaper Berlingske belongs to the same publishing house.

Muhler 01-28-2017 05:09 PM

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #03, 2017.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know a beaming Mary recently received the Berlingske Foundation's Honorary Award.

The chairman of the foundation said that the Crown Princess have superseded the expectations the Danes had for her as an important member of the DRF and that her dedication for the Danish community was nothing short of impressive.
But also as an recognition as patron for and starter of many projects helping vulnerable and exposed groups in the community.

Mary in her return speech said: "I can hardly find words to describe how moved this makes me.
Thank you very much. It's a great honor and pleasure for for me to receive the Berlingske Foundation's Honorary Award. It means so much for the work I in co-operation many other contribute with to the Danish society is being seen as significant and I'm honored to be included in the grand company which the list of previous recipients constitute.
I've decided to pass on the award money for 100.000 DKK to the Alliance Against Bullying. A co-operation between Save the Child, The Plight of Children and the Mary Foundation. With the Alliance Against Bullying we stand even stronger in the work in putting an end to bullying and through a co-ordinated effort we will together support the schools in working in a co-ordinated way and continuously in preventing and alleviating bullying. Bullying is not about evil children, but about evil patterns, and that's why bullying must be fought by working with the culture and in strengthening the feeling of community".
Even though the year is already well on its way I'll allow myself to say Happy New Year - and may the new year be one of understanding and community".

Mary wasn't the only recipient thought. Two journalists were also awarded for their work in Ukraine and Russia.

Afterwards it was beaming and delighted Frederik who escorted his wife to Restaurant Le Sommelier where the award-winners were celebrated.

If some people saying the royals don't work much... This Facebook news site have
collected CP Frederik and CP Mary's official events for the next 10 days.

https://www.facebook.com/23522781666...type=3&theater

They have official events almost every day. Og notice they are ONLY the official work.
Then there also are all their unofficial work, all the work behind the scenes, preparation, speech writing, meetings, calendar planning, transport, the work in the Mary Foundation, the work in IOC, clothes meetings, etc.

I don't think many people knows how much they are out to every week.

Fresh off his official visit to China and her usual busy week, Frederik and Mary tomorrow will attend the inauguration of the Lego House in Billund.

"The heart of LEGO House is the experience zones, consisting of four coloured areas, a spectacular Masterpiece Gallery where fans exhibit their impressive creations, and a History Collection where you can witness the development of the company and the LEGO brand over time.The experience zones are arranged according to colour. Each colour represents a certain aspect of a child’s learning. Red is creative. Blue is cognitive. Green is social. Yellow is emotional. Each zone consists of a number of individual activities and attractions "

The hair-challenged man Frederik is seen in a number of photos talking with used to be the senior manager for Lego. He's quite a character! When he presented a large surplus for the press a few years ago - he sang and danced about the surplus. And that in front of otherwise pretty serious business and finance reporters.

:previous: It's fun to see Josephine dragging her dad away to see something. What parent haven't experienced that? - And realized (while tending to your dislocated shoulder) that you are the parent, not of an adorable little child, but a creature with a strength that rivals that of the Incredible Hulk!

It's also pretty clear that the twins are now at the age where they are aware of their gender, and that means they mirror themselves in their older siblings, if they have any. (Or their parents, if they don't have older siblings). Josephine dress like Bella and stay close to sister. While Vincent sticks to his brother.

It's nice to see the whole family there. This was a perfect event for the children to take part in, and they all seemed to enjoy themselves very much. It was great to see Christian, especially, interacting very naturally and with confidence in that sort of environment. He, and I would say Isabella, too, are old enough to understand they themselves are at the event as members of the royal family, not just tagging along with Mom and Dad for fun.

I could drop my husband & son off at this place and actually have a weekend to myself LOL.

What's the family behind Lego called - Aren't they personal friends of Fred & Mary?

How long was Frederik in China - he must have only had a few hours at home before being driven to this huge playhouse.

And just one more: why was Mary's speech in English?

I think I could happily spend a weekend there as well. :lol:

The Lego family, with variations, are called Kirk Kristiansen.
Some of the family members are fairly close to M&F, but probably more close to Joachim.

Frederik was in China for three or four days.

The speech was in English, because Lego is an international business where the management and development default-language is English. Also, this event would have been shown on the company-intranet.

I think bringing the children to this event was a good move. Any Lego event is often child-friendly and it will slowly introduce Vincent and Josephine to the kind of engagements they'll be attending with their parents in the near future (Christian and Isabella have more of an experience with those).

Indeed, Roskilde. :smile:

I think most of you reading this, will look just as much forward to this years Hubertus Hunt as I will.
Josephine should be a guarantee for some entertainment and with Vincent's preference for yelling at everything with four legs, only a case of flu (everybody's got flu here in DK right now!) can ruin the day.

You may recall that Frederik one year took part in the hunt. Isabella is I believe getting old enough to take part in the children's part of the hunt should she choose to. - We can only hope.

A service to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.
Sounds just like an event for children....;)

Muhler 12-03-2017 03:30 AM

:previous: Yes, why not?

M&F have been particular in introducing their children to historical events. The Reformation is very much a historical event. Not least for the DRF, as the monarch became the head of the church.
