Did I get it right? : Fred told Billed Bladet that they bought a Chalet in Verbier ten years ago....Good to know where the money is...

https://www.billedbladet....i-har-koebt-hus-i-verbier
Maybe we should dedicate an own thread for this topic?
The Dailymail says (concerning the chalet in Verbier) that "When it was purchased, Princess Mary registered it under her maiden name, Mary Donaldson, The Daily Telegraph reported.Her husband referred to himself as Prince Frederik of Denmark on documents pertaining to the property, the publication reported."
So, if ever Fred decided to dump Mosh, she could keep the chalet in Verbier?! Shocked What about the post-nup?

Their stay in Switzerland makes no sense at all to me. Itís quite common in Denmark for kids to go away for school for a year or two but thatís at an older age. Also Mary going with them (seemingly, itís phrased pretty vaguely IMO) and Fred planning to visit too, is very odd timing with Joachim and Marie being absent. It leaves Marge all alone almost. Odd all around.

ITA ! Very strange. Unless Marge wabted some time alone with Fred. To prepare him to take over or to talk about his estranged Cruella devil eye, and their divorce. Without Mary interrupting or Joke and Mary accused of Coup d'Etat while Mary was far in Verbier. There are all gone excpet the Monarch and the heir. Serious discussions behind closes doors in an empty palace ?

Some of the comments about this on the DM are wild. I figured most commenters are from the UK, where going to boarding school is pretty common, isn't it? I mean, not unheard of for those at a certain social level, right? But the comments act as if those who send kids to boarding school are somehow abandoning them.

People I know who went to boarding school loved it and have lifelong friends and adventure memories.

Sounds like the Derfs were doing a kind of study abroad exchange sort of thing. Not uncommon is it? Or maybe for Danish kids?

I agree with you. Itís feel sad how glad people seem to get from bad news involving these 4 children. Guarantee not one of them would want to live under the same scrutiny and criticism that is regularly dished out to or about children.

The way F&M have done it, definitely isnít normal by Danish standards. The kids are too young as going to boarding school is done at a very specific time/class/way. Kids stay in Denmark. Typically itís done the last year (or two) of school, before the secondary school of whatever is chosen (various different kind of high school). Itís called ďafterschoolĒ and itís often a themed school/stay with a focus on something - sports, travel, animal, anime, whatever. Lots and lots of kids do it. Theyíre 15 and older so even Christian is too young. Fred and Mary staying with them also suggests to me that Vincent and Josephine especially are too young for this.

ETA: study abroad exchange trips are done but again, most Danish kids will be older. A lot older and their parents wonít be going with them.

So it's fair to say that there is something rotten in the state of Denmark? Wink

Sending children to boarding school is not common in the UK. It is a very class thing so I won't say much but it is now only affordable by pretty wealthy people. In the past professional workers - doctors, lawyers - could afford the fees - and some still can - but now fees are very high and the schools rely on a lot of overseas students.

Takk skal du ha, Maria. That makes sense. So this weird the-whole-family-goes-to-Switzerland is strange indeed. Even at their level in society.

By Danish norms, itís completely unheard of considering their age. I havenít heard anyone in Denmark who understood their decision. Itís just not done that way here.

'The Crown Prince family finds it most natural to return home and stand with the Danes at a time that requires a lot of everyone and where there is a common responsibility to look after each other.'


Can't believe they are being so hypercritical even at this difficult time. What is Moshy going to do ? Volunteering at the hospitals ? They are fleeing back to Denmark because they have big palaces, lots of privileges and special treatment.

It was announced yesterday that all schools in Switzerland will be closed until April 4. The Derfs returning to Denmark to "stand with the Danes" is pure PR. With the school closed, they did not have much of a choice.
