Before attending the evening football game between Sweden and Denmark with Mary on Saturday (June 2), Crown Prince Frederik attended the Home Guard's 2007 grand exhibit called "Show the way - shape the future" at the Fredericia Exhibition Centre in Fredericia in central Denmark. TV2 reports the award Frederik was given was first instituted by his grandfather Frederik IX in 1953.

The Home Defence is going through a period of reassessment about its size and function since some of its historical reasons for existing have changed in recent times, hence the theme of the event. (thanks Muhler!)
