He has been at the Military Academy here in Copenhagen which is located in the Fredericksberg Slot or castle and took us on a private tour today. It was built in the mid-1800's when the Crown Prince visited Italy and loved the art and achitecture. He asked for 14,000 crowns which would have only built two rooms, but his father died soon afterward and he became king and finished it the way he wanted. It has been added onto and now looks like this.
The princesses Pancake house. It started out as a little room where the queen could go and play peasant, but eventually became a playroom for the princesses. All the tiles are hand painted from Royal Copenhagen.
We were so pleased to be taken on the tour, the academy is seldom open to the public.
