Margrethe, Henrik, Frederik & Mary @ the Fredensborg fakkeltog

8th April,2010: One of the nice traditions at Fredensborg is the fakkeltog. It is a torchlight procession at 9pm (fakkeltog) in which the towns-people of Fredensborg go in torchlight procession into the inner courtyard of Fredensborg Palace to greet the Regent Couple on their spring return to the palace from their winter 'quarters' at Amalienborg. Fredensborg mayor Thomas Lykke Pedersen made the official welcome and the Queen responded with her thanks. Frederik and Mary often join the Queen and the Prince Consort for this ceremony and did so in this special birthday year.

What are your thoughts about Crown Princess Mary's big kiss for Frederik? Do you think it is a good thing or an inappropriate thing to do?
