article about this patronage

How difficult can it be...?

Thanks Polyesco og Muhler :flowers:

At least the DRF's court could have posted something on their official Facebook site or Instagram - but no. But it's far from all F&M's official events they publish, maybe because they have so many that the DRF's accounts would be flooded with the CP-couple's almost daily events every week.

Tonight, CP Frederik and CP Mary will attend the Nordic Council prize award ceremony in the DR Concert Hall. You can follow it live on

(3 hours from now...)

Thank you, Polyesco. :flowers:

Major General Michael Lollesgaard has certainly deserved a recognition for his work in Mali. Being commander of one of the forgotten wars against the Islamists and despite wholly inadequate support, - politically, militarily and logistically this international force has kept the Islamists at bay and even driven them back into the desert.
It is very much a special forces war, fought in a remote almost forbidden country and in an area the size of Texas, with basically only a few hundred special forces supported by a handful of light infantry.
"HRH The Crown Prince participates December 9, 2016 in reception in Naval Officer's Association new headquarters.

I think this looks a bit silly. I mean, either you dress up in a kimono or you don't.
But suits and kimono's?!? :ermm:

Thanks for all the pictures and updates from Frederik's latest event.
I'm busy these months of work, so there are days where I'm not on TRF as much as I would like, so it's great to be able to log on TRF and be 100% updated :flowers:

Frederik and the men looks nice in those kimonos.
