"Among the speakers at the opening was Kolding's newly elected mayor, Knud Erik Langhoff, who highlighted Crown Princess Mary's famous lycra speech, which she gave at the Crown Prince's 50th birthday in 2018. In it, she said that Crown Prince Frederik 'stood sharp in lycra shorts' . Words that made the whole nation laugh out loud.


"In the speech you mentioned that close-fitting lycra in the color white was a no go," said Mayor Knud Erik Langhoff and handed over a special gift to the Crown Princess: A pair of tight-fitting (added: black) lycra shorts. “Normally, one should not talk about a woman’s age. You are not middle-aged, You are still in Your 40s and still very sporty. So therefore I also hope that I will be allowed to see you again before long when Kolding is to be filled with runners for the Royal Run,  the mayor said."
