Henrik hosts the Grib Skov hunt


Today Prince Henrik hosted the Royal hunting at Grib Skov. The ladies went to lunch at the Badstueslottet in Hillerød. Among the shooters were Crown Prince Frederik. Queen Margrethe and Crown Princess Mary hosted the ladies tour. The dinner followed in the evening at Fredensborg Castle.

Grib Skov (in Danish)
Grib Skov is administered and cared for by Danish Forest and Nature Agency (only link in English -- but doesn't have details available in Danish)

A note: neither of us support hunting. Since we have been following the Danish Royals it is something we have learned is a royal pastime. We have read information about how it is controlled and all the things which are often said to defend hunting. But, although it is a royal tradition, we are disappointed this practice continues.

Added: TV2 has reported that Mary is not too keen on hunting. Mary is said to feel sorry for the deer and is upset when the animals suffer if they don't die from the first shot. (Thanks Risum!)

Hunting is a very old tradition in Denmark, and other countries as well. It's a way of taking care of your land, and you can better enjoy the nature and surroundings at your properties when hunting. I don't think the Danish Royal Family will never abandon the hunting.

Hi Grace,

I am not the Lotte who runs the Princess Alexandra website. That is (big L) Lotte Haldrup who lives in the USA. Lotte is a very good friend to this blog and we recommend her site which has many, many photos and lots of information about Princess Alexandra.

The address of her website is:

http://www.princessalexandradk.info/

Just copy and paste the address into a new window.

I am 'small l' lotte from Australia. Sorry if there has been any confusion and enjoy Lotte Haldrup's site :)
