Thank you, Polyesco. :flowers:
The bearded, less than intellectual looking man, who in the photos is seen sticking as close to Frederik as possible (and Mary and other members of the DRF, when he can get away with it!) is our Foreign Minister, Anders Samuelsen.
He is one of the most qualified foreign ministers we've ever had, according to himself... I'm serious, and so was he!
So fellow TRF members would you like a slightly used foreign minister, with a backbone like a flu-stricken earthworm? Look no further. :biggrin:
You can have him for free. We'll even pay his one-way ticket to any destination you like. - Please!
The Aussie members gonna love this article!
Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2018.
Written by our sports reporter Marianne Singer.
As you know the Invictus Games are coming up and this year they are going to take place in Australia.
In that context Frederik met the Danish participants at a reception at the residence of the Australian ambassador to Denmark, Mary Ellen Miller.
As you also know Frederik has great people skills and a number of the Danish veterans are about the age of Frederik, so they quickly talked about old days making the mood jolly.
One of the veterans, Jacob Udsen, who served in Croatia and whom I actually recognize from my own time there. Not in the same company though. It's a small world! He is suffering from PTSD and he said about Frederik: "It really means a lot that he's here. - We had a good conversation. We talked about football clubs, we belonged to when we were young and which played against each other. I played for Humlebæk (a Copenhagener soccer club) and he played for Fredensborg."
About being a part of the Invictus Games Jacob Udsen said: "It provides a relief. You are not alone. The accept there is between veterans is totally fantastic."
Frederik said to the veterans in a speech: "The thing that you are now going Down Under is pretty spectacular. You'll meet fierce competition from your mates, especially the Australian ones. They are good company, but they fight!
It'll be an adventure going down there. Australia is far away, but it's fantastic. You'll be received like brothers and sisters in that country with which we now also has a lot in common with."
Harry is very much credited in this article for his work for starting the Invictus Games.
There is also a long, and most well-illustrated interview with Frederik in this weeks issue of BB. I'll scan and summarize that interview separately. There is no rush and there are plenty of other events to occupy my these days!
Here you can feats your eyes on this week issue of BB #20, 2018:

His smile is wonderful
" the participants told the Crown Prince about their personal development work, which is the real goal of the Danish participation in Invictus Games."
:previous: updated article and some words from a veteran
"- Crown Prince Frederik is an incredibly open and honest person who meets us at eye level. He meets us on our ball or bow. It's about openness and honesty - it means you dare to break the taboo as a soldier. Because there are many whose body and soul hurts, says Pierre Skovgaard"
Thank you Polyesco for all the info and pictures here. That last picture you posted with Frederik and that young man, good gosh, Frederik looks like a young man of 20 again.....what is his secret ....:lol::lol:
I was looking at all the people in the pictures around Frederik and he with them, everyone had such a wonderful rapport with Frederik and he with them. That shows how well liked he is in Denmark and how much the people admire him and the same goes for Mary. They really do make a great team for the country .......:smile:
