Freebies, preening, chaos, trash all around and new clothes on Mary!
All sorts of bogan follies on display at the annual Christmas concert at the Esajas Church in Copenhagen! The only thing that could have made this even more trashy would have been if Papa 'Half-Mast' Slurpppppppppson and Moody Susan had again crashed the event - with the professor's pants zipper down again like last time!
Mary has happy eyes for no one but the cameras, and when she does look at her children, it's very blank. She hardly has any interest in them at all. She is definitely an emotionally detached mother, only going through outward motions when in public that try to convey "motherly-ness". There is no maternal instinct in this woman, and yet, she's popped out four slightly dim and porcine-skinned little monkeys just to ensure her place on the gravy train. That train, however, is loaded with Danish taxpayer kroner being deposited at the Bank of More-y Antoinette in Irrelevancy Town, around the corner from the Bastille-borg. The Heering family is in the pew behind the Derfsons; Caroline can't stop beaming, looking at Mary, interacting with the children, while her daughters look on to the circus in front of them with dismay, especially as the boganettes were given presents (that should have been opened at home!). Yes, girls, other children are more important than you.
Derf, for his part, alternates between looking rather depressed and yet gazing at his children with longing love, as if he has no ability to reach out to them except in the most mild way. Someone get him some help so that he can start to help himself! Was he stoned or drunk, or just beaten down by his wife?
The discipline and structure of school has been good for Christian who seems calm and relaxed, a vast difference from before when he seemed to be stimming in even the most normal and controlled activities. Good! Izzy is adorable and looks for the first time like she's been dressed like a girl - no space booties and a pink coat! Neither kid is really cute physically, but they seem to lean on each other as the oldest kids in what they've already figured out is a very dysfunctional family. I suspect now that they are older and becoming better behaved, that Freddles spends more time with them and that attention is paying off in good behaviour and calmness. Princent took off by himself down the aisle after the concert was over, so he is probably becoming a real handful around the house. Josie was dressed in one of Isabella's hand-me-downs, so Mary's Scotch frugality only extends it seems to everyone who isn't her (Yrma is sporting a new blue suede purse!). Josie is all Donaldson - the very picture of Mary as a child.
But why oh why do these kids have to be presented with gifts? Mary needs to put a stop to this. This is her charity and she should mention to the organisers that it is unnecessary. The older kids seem to have reached an age or developmental level where they don't need snacks and toys to occupy them during solemn ceremonies (like they did during Cousin Henrik's christening). The younger kids don't need to learn about such distractions. For heaven's sake, they're all in the front row supposedly to watch the children's choir sing.
With such grotesque manners and values, no wonder Daisy is heading over to Schackenborg for Christmas! Don't be surprised if she finally gets on board with legislation to give them the throne!

A few days after Countess Alexandra of Frederiksborg, ex-wife of Prince Joachim, did not fail to honour her appointment with the annual DR Girls's Choir Group Christmas Concert with her husband Martin Jørgensen and her sons Princes Nikolai and Felix, then on Sunday, 16 December, it was Princess Mary of Denmark's turn to take on her musical patronage. And she also chose to do with the family.At the forefront in the Esajas Church in Copenhagen, there was a happy royal tribe to attend the Christmas concert of the children's choir of the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music, for which Princess Mary is the patron. It was a rare opportunity to observe Prince Frederik's family in full force, as the public had not seen the twins Vincent and Josephine, born in January 2011, since July 2012, at the traditional summer photo session of the royal family at Graasten, the summer residence of the Danish royals. On that occasion, it was discovered for the first time that Prince Vincent could stand by himself, and a few months later, the twins still have changed dramatically, and Prince Vincent, who has long blonde hair, galloped merrily! He had to be closely monitored at the exit of the church!Inside, there was Prince Christian, age 7, to take care of him. Second in the order of succession to the throne after his father, Prince Christian is no less a child, and his eyes twinkled at the time to open gifts. Facetious, he laughed after putting a toy crown of candles on the head of his little brother, who was watching on his father's knees with a nice tractor, a classic for little boys. But when the "vroom vroom" was too noisy, Christian was there to kindly to "shush" Vincent. As for the girls, they were well-behaved: Princess Isabella, 5 years, played with a doll while Princess Josephine was on her mother's lap. In less than a month, 8 January 2013, the twins will be two years old!
