Thanks, Iceflower. :flowers:
Frederik is doing an awful lot of saluting.
Here we see the difference between the army salute and the navy salute: https://2.t.cdn.belga.be/belgaimage:1...def&m=nhmkmiba
In the army (presumably someone from the air force came up with that idea!) your wrist is as close to 90 degrees as it is possible. While the navy salute is more natural for most humans.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #13, 2018.
Written by our fitness reporters the Ulrik Ulriksen and the Ken Richter.
As you know Frederik recently went to Aalborg to visit the special forces there.
Aalborg is located some five hours by car from Copenhagen, depending on the traffic and on the way back, he surprised a number of local school children who were practicing for the Royal Run, which is to take place in connection with Frederik's birthday and where he will take place in several of these runs on the same day.
It was a chilly day (in fact there hasn't even been a hint of spring yet!) when Frederik with his hand buried in his pockets showed up among the children and smiled: "Are you cold? - I can at least promise that the weather will be a little warmer on the day we are going to run."
Frederik offered good advise during the warming up, while mingling with the children: "You must also remember to eat healthy, go to bed early and rise early on the day we are going to run together in Aalborg, because we are going to run as early as as 09.00." (Frederik must have B-type children!)
After half an hour it was time to drive on to Aarhus: "When we see each other again at the Royal Run, please do come over and say hi. I'll remember it's you I trained with".
Later on Frederik surprised around 50 adults who were to start on a practice run in front of Marselisborg. (The park around Marselisborg is open to the public when the DRF is not in residence.)
Here he also helped with the warming up and mingled with people - something he is very good at. He ended the brief visit by saying: "I hope You will have a good day, when we get there."
"Crown Prince Frederik comes to Aalborg to celebrate the 100th anniversary
The Crown Prince will open a new Jørn Utzon exhibition" -April 9th
Frederik is currently in Bangladesh, where he has visited the largest refugee camp in the world. At Cox's Bazar. It is currently home to 900.000 refugees from Myanmar.
Since August last year, 700.000 have crossed the border, in what is a de facto ethnic cleansing taking place in Myanmar.
The situation in the refugee camp is expected to worsen, when the monsoon comes.
Frederik will return to DK today Friday.
Some more photos and a video posted from the Palace
It's great to see his work with the red cross continue.
More from the Danish Red Cross
"For many years I have been following the Red Cross's work closely and previously visited the organization's projects in the world. It is important that the Red Cross humanitarian operations be seen and that the issues are highlighted for as many as possible, says Crown Prince Frederik.
he went to Bangladesh in 2012 as well

Honnored by the visit of HRH Crownprince Frederik of Denmark to @danskrodekors @Federation @BRCS activities in Cox’s Bazar. He was impressed.
Love this quote from Frederik's recent visit
"We know from previous visits that the impact of such visits is great - not only because it gives attention, but because it strengthened the unity of the Red Cross enormously. Right from the proud volunteers in the recycling shop to the outgoing surgeon. The royal house creates a spirit of love because they give recognition. And everyone wants to lift the Red Cross a little more. Thanks to HKH Crown Prince for ever to be at eye level and make a difference."
great work all around

On Wednesday and Thursday, the Crown Prince visited the Danish soldiers in the Baltic States.
The visit began Wednesday in Lithuania, where the defense currently has f-16 and crew stationed. Here saw the crown prince among other things the Danish facilities and heard about their tasks, and the crown prince also participated in a run along with the soldiers
After the visit to Lithuania, the crown prince flew on to Estonia, where since January the defense has had 200 soldiers from the army stationed Here the crown prince visited a laborious where the crown prince experienced how the Danish soldiers solve their task in the area. Then it went to the barracks in tapa, where the Danish soldiers live.

Travels from April 4-6 to Bangladesh and April 11-12 to Lithuania and Estonia, busy weeks.
Thanks Polyseco. :flowers:
And while Frederik was in Estonia he dropped by to say hi to the Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid.
Denmark and Estonia have historical ties and since the Baltic countries became independent Estonia has been taken under the wings of Denmark, in regards to building up a state administration and negotiation contracts on a state level, which they were naturally inexperienced in - and got cheated on a number of occasions.
It is however some 700 years since DK abandoned the castles and colonies in Estonia.
Those well versed in Danish history may remember that it was in Estonia, in 1219, that Dannebrog fell from the sky.
Today there is a regular presence of Danish fighters, who are conducting air patrols over the Baltic countries. The NATO countries take turn in sending fighters there.
One of the currently greatest fears of the Baltic countries is that Russia will do a Crimea on them. I.e. use the ethnic Russian minorities to take a "slice" of one of more of the Baltic countries. The salami method you now. As such a number of NATO countries have also stationed army units there, more or less on a permanent basis there.
They are to be brutal, living shields.
"Separatists" and anonymous "volunteers" may have few qualms about crossing the border and engaging Baltic soldiers, but inflicting casualties on soldiers from other countries is a very dangerous step! As such it's hoped that the presence of foreign troops will serve as a deterrent. That the troops are trained, equipped and under orders to genuinely fight back, if challenged only make the stakes higher.
There is no way NATO can and will accept say 100 casualties from fighting Russian insurgents, without reacting militarily and in force.
On the other hand, Russia no longer have a buffer zone between itself and NATO. Having combat troops from NATO stationed right at their border in Poland and the Baltic in particular tends to make them jumpy, considering Russia's history of being invaded.
Denmark, more or less permanently, now have a mechanized company stationed in Estonia alongside a British battalion.
Today, April 13, Crown Prince Frederik handed out the "Denmark's Olympic Hope" award to young Danish sports talents in Copenhagen (and played some table tennis with one of the winners :smile:).

He sure did, Iceflower, he sure did.
But did you notice that he's been injured in the face - again!
On his right temple. (Remember Mary is right-handed, so she's in the clear. :tongue:)
The court informs us that his latest injury was acquired when he and his family went on skiing holiday recently. But did not disclose any further details.
You can study his injury better here: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso.../20648955-.jpg
Perhaps it happened when he was putting on clothes? Being temporary blinded from pulling a turtleneck sweater over his head, he lost his sense of balance and knocked his head against something. Or perhaps he got stuck in the turtleneck and had to be pried free with tongs?
Or judging from the chapter in the portrait book about him, that I have just finished translating, perhaps he - once again - sat naked on an inflatable mattress while being dragged through a pool of mud by a tractor. :biggrin:
That chapter will be uploaded in a day or two.

And visiting the troops in Estonia
Ah, turtlenecks or army gear, this man, Frederik rocks it all the time. What a gorgeous man he is......:flowers:
