I am a bit surprised at the uproar. A short intervall spent abroad isn't something so very out of the ordinary in my circles, so I can't find it so overly disruptive for the children. I know many children who spend some months, weeks in France, Britain or the US to give their language skills a bit of a boost and/or to help them with their social skills.
German friends of mine eg. have just send their daughter to Carlifornia for a 2 months trip - enough time to help with english, not enough to get her out of her current school-plan.

I think it's that this isn't/hasn't been done in the DRF before; it would be "normal" to send one or two children off for a bit of polish but going from "zero kids/no tradition of sending any kids" to "all four are being shipped out".

I also come from a background where it's normal for a child/teenager/collegiate to spend some time abroad, even over a year depending on how deeply immersed they become (or if it's a three to four year program). 

This is not the norm for this family; thus it raises eyebrows.  (I'd have recommended a cloistered convent for Josie, preferably a silent order, but that's just me).

I agree. What's weird it's not that they're sending them away, but that all four at once and with no further mention of why etc.

If it would've been to improve their language skills, they could've just said so.

Seems very odd to me. A lot of children here attend boarding school for various reasons but not usually out of the country until they are about 14 years old. I've never heard of a parent going with them (other than to see them settled in during the first week or so)

What is Mary going to be doing all day while the kids are in school? Just waiting around doing their laundry and cooking them a lovely home cooked meal to greet them with at the end of the school day. Wink

Seems her job as Crown Princess of Denmark is not too demanding if she can take 3 months off to wait around in another country for her brood to come home from school. Thinking

Hadn't thought of the nannies, but if they are going as well, the kids may well feel more comfortable with them along than Mosh anyway.

So that begs the question why does Mosh need to be away from her main job in Denmark for 3 months? Very odd to say the least. Thinking

She doesn't need to be there but she is going to be.

The PR facade has to be kept up, can't have the slow Danes see her for the neglectful parent that she is.

Maybe it's really just a cover up for Mosh and some operations of hers.

Fishy .....
Mary's made Regent when Henrik's was denied and there's still Joachim and Bene.
Then in short order ..... off to Switzerland.

Cannot do them regent-ish duties when not in Denmark.  Don't you think?

Xtian looks so much like Mosh in some pictures.

Another thought: The Shack kids are in France for a year. I assume their French was pretty good before they went. They will come back fluent. Mary does not want to be them the center of attention and her kids lacking skills. Could that be reason why they are all going?

Christian looks are still very Mary and/or Donaldson. But, heck even looks can change....

In the past many people have said I had a strong physical resemblance to my paternal family. But when getting older, others recognize more and more traits of my maternal family in me Wink Smiley
