Christian's First Schoolday

12 August 2011

For prince Christian's vey first day at primary school there was a short meeting with the press outside Amalienborg Slot.

Christian answered a few questions from the press. He answered yes to the questions wether he was excited to start school, and if he could already spell his name.
He'd been to discover the school a day earlier.
He answered that yes, he had a packed lunch with him, but he woudn't say what was in it, "a secret!" He also said it would mostly be mum who'd pick him up from school.
Do you know others who are in your class? "Yes, but I'm not telling who".

Mary was wearing a new dress by Hugo Boss.

Frederik & Mary accompanied their eldest child to his new school, Tranegårdskolen in Gentofte, Hellerup, a small public school yet also an elite establishment in one of the wealthiest parts in Denmark. One of Christian's classmates was his friend, Rosemarie Heering, daughter of Peter & Caroline Heering.

In the afternoon, Mary & Frederik were photographed again when they went to pick up Christian from school.

Summer Holidays 2011

Crown princess Mary hadn't performed any official functions since the start of June 2011, and after attending the royal wedding of Albert & Charlène of Monaco early July, another 5 week period of holidays followed.

With the twins still under the age of 1, 2011 was a year where Mary took the time that was necessary to be with her children.

In July the family spent their holidays at the château de Cayx in France.

Frederik, Mary & the children were spotted by paparazzi as they were holidaying with Hamish Campbell & Genevieve Taubman and their 2 sons.

And they were also joined by Jeppe & Birgitte Handwerk and their daughters Palma & India.

After the French holidays, the crown prince family and the Handwerk family travelled on to Croatia where they holidayed  a little more aboard the Parsifal III, the yacht owned by their magnat friend Kim Vibe-Petersen.

On the 27th of July 2011 the holidays were interrupted when Mary & Frederik attended a memorial service at the Vor Frue Kirke in Copenhagen, in honour of the young victims of the Oslo bombing & Utøya shootings.

Mary carried a new clutch by Pura Lopez.

The same day, the family and Margrethe were flown to Graasten Slot by helicopter.

Mary & Frederik were spotted horse riding in the vicinity of the royal estate. Their dog Ziggy was with them.

On the 29th of July 2011 the family made a trip to Legoland. They took Ingrid & Richard von Pfeil with them.

The family photo shoot at Graasten took place on the 1st of August 2011.

For the first time the family moved away from the entrance of the castle, and went into the garden.

They also posed at the new steps by the lake, which were a birthday gift from the municipality to queen Margrethe.

Mary wore a new Prada dress.

On the 3rd of August 2011 Mary & Isabelle were photographed walking the babies.
