SEOGHØR.DK has picked up on that website as well  Grin


There have been many discussions about how many hours, days and weeks, the Royals actually work for their upkeep. Especially Crown Prince Frederik has been a popular target when various experts slings figure out. Now a new website that popped up. It is called simply: Does the crown prince work today (http://www.arbejderkronprinsenidag.dk/) and it is the meaning that it has to provide answers to the potent questions.

How much truth there is in the side, you decide.


And they are counting:


Has the Crown Prince worked today?

No

The Crown Prince is not working today.
This year, the crown prince worked 29 days.
An average worker in the same period worked around 74 days.

God save Denmark

Oh it feels like some sort of rebellion. 

I'm just glad that the spotlight is on the facts and not the fiction.

Why is the media in Denmark asking why Mary was in New York for a week for what was essentially two days of engagements?

I had a quick glance at the calendar and I would say about a half.
Then we have of course also dinners, weddings etc. Not many "serious" events...

Not an excuse for doing so little. If it's too hard, step out. If not, do what your job requires.  Angry

Today, 5 September, he is working. That means he's worked 53 days ("worked"). Average working days so far: about 148. I.e. Fred has worked just about 36% of the average working days. Beer

It's my impression that Frederik's health is precarious. It's not in the same category as Crown Princess Masako's health, but it's precarious nonetheless. It strikes me that everyone recognizes that he's ill-suited for any event that requires him to speak extensively or use rhetorical skills. Which is why Mary takes on serious activities for which she herself is sometimes poorly suited.

IMHO his health might be a lot better if he laid off all the booze/drugs.

And they are hardly strenuous 8 hour long days (and then public transportation home, picking up the kids from kindergarten/school, grocery shopping with tired children, cooking etc etc)

"She isn´t wearing ANYTHING", said a young child

The empress shuddered, for she knew that they were right, but she thought, "The procession must go on!" She carried herself even more proudly, and the chamberlains walked along behind carrying the train that wasn't there.
