Now that his wife has gone native for a few days to refresh her narcissistic soul, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark has found himself in a strange, new state of mind: one of freedom. He might even be slightly happy, but he's not sure since that's been such an elusive feeling for the last ten years, ever since that bogan wife of his came up to Europe to just pop in on him and see if she could have a place to stay "for a few days". No, Our Freddles has been visited by a feeling of lightness and an odd peace of mind. Those four children of his kind of even look a little bit cute to him. Course, pretty nannies don't hurt, either!
Day One of MoreMore's African regency saw Freddums hosting Danish and Baltic ministers at his home to celebrate 20 years of their own freedom. Mary never let him have company over for a working lunch! Look how relaxed and happy everyone seems to be. The Crown Prince seems engaged and involved - grown-up and kingly, in fact! The ministers seem to be telling him positive stories of the benefits of throwing off the yoke of oppression and enjoying life to the fullest! How inspiring! Little synapses are going off in Freddums' brain. Energy and blood are returning. Mary needs to spend a lot more time away!
In fact Fred started feeling so good, he decided to take ALL FOUR children out for a walk and little cruise around the harbour! The sexy nannies strapped the turkey baster twins onto their full bosoms and out the door they went to the dock at the park behind the palace. What a nice day for an outing all together before the oldest two head back to kindy on Monday and before their mother-figure thinggie returns from picking up black market ivory and tiger skins for Boganson Chrissie presents. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark has a little swing in his step, and might even have allowed himself to think that he deserves and truly wants this kind of good feeling in all aspects of his life. Royal attorney Henrik Wedell-Wedellsborg already has a draft divorce resolution drawn up, waiting for the call from the palace.

Since the Danish Crown Princess, Madam la Vice-reine d'Afrique, has decided that the simple pleasures of Danish royal waving did not suffice to relieve her heartburn in the wake of "Greedy Mary" magazine covers and Marie's pregnancy announcement (and instead flew post haste to the miserable climate of the African Horn to generate some "Diana treatment" with black children), the lovely Schackenborg princess filled in at a jewellery fair after her scheduled visit to the increasingly popular Cooking Copenhagen food festival. Who's provincial, now!?
27 August, Marie attended the Nordic Taste event at the festival and tasted some of the best regional food from Nordic chefs and restaurants, including oysters from the Schackenborg Slotskro, the local inn in Møgeltønder where Marie's cousins stayed during the 2008 wedding. Marie is on record from a 2010 interview for her love of her region's oysters. Nice to celebrate and show support to the local foodies!
29 August, Marie attended the Copenhagen Jewellery Fair to hand out the prizes for the Bella Nordic Jewellery Award. Lovely in an elegant black dress, not hiding the growing bump, Marie mixed and mingled with the equally elegantly dressed vendors, designers and collectors. No wonder Marie was sent to this event; this crowd is a far cry from the shaggy, shabby, sartorial ennui of fashionistas that Mary once mixed with during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Among the displays was a new tiara by Flora Danica, one that celebrates Marie's French heritage with three lillies. What an ideal present and one that the little girl baking in Marie's oven will appreciate receiving on her 18th birthday! Here is BT's gallery of photos from the Copenhagen Jewellry Fair.
Happy 12th birthday to the increasingly handsome Prince Nikolai William Alexander Frederik of Denmark. Many happy returns of the day, young sir. What a kind, wise and beloved king you will be when Unca Fweddie finally dumps his psychodelic pile for a bar in Key West. Or his ridiculous wife for a strong, sexy, smart blonde. Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
Lucky Nikolai. His family birthday party at mor Alexandra's house was attended by his entire immediate family and Uncle Fred with cousins Xian and Izzy - and no Auntie Mary! This must have been the best birthday ever!
