Royal of Sweden and Norway, two presidents and the entire Danish royal family of Denmark, Berleburg and London celebrates next month that it is 40 years since Queen Margrethe ascended the throne.

Two large evening parties, coach driving through Copenhagen, the Royal Guard in dress uniform and all the great royal family out on the balcony at Amalienborg - yes, there's plenty to look forward to when Queen Margrethe next month celebrates its 40-year government jubilee.

Denmark is one of the world's oldest monarchies, yes, Japan is older, but it is an empire. Queen Margrethe is also one of the regents, who has served longest on the Danish throne, so a 40-year government jubilee is definitely something special.

Queen is to celebrate three consecutive days, from Friday 13 January to Sunday 15 in January.

Queen Margrethes 40'th new year speach.

http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland/2011/12/31/173603.htm

Also many of the young, the situation is worrisome. They can not not find work or they do not get the education that can improve their chances of finding employment. This is serious, not just for the individual young person but the entire community. For it is the young who must lead our society forward, they are the ones that our future must be based.

 When times are uncertain, we also become less sure of ourselves. We are hesitant about the challenges, it is understandable enough, but it must not lead to paralysis. As a society we can not dig ourselves into the concerns, but see the problems of the eyes and do something about them.

 We have faced adversity before and we've seen before how we could get through a crisis by biting the teeth together, support each other and not give up. We can not leave it to others or to chance, how we should proceed. We need to make sure you get where we can find a starting point. This applies both mentally and quite specific.

 You may find new ways. For the young can it be to find another track if you do not enter the dream education. Maybe they should move to another city or another province, where opportunities for work or education is better there. We have great benefits and many opportunities in Denmark, perhaps precisely because the country is not so great, and we are not so many. But it takes effort to see the opportunities and exploit them.

No rumours nor any speculations. Those lazy tabloids.

Its great that the swedes and the norwegians come but it would be nice to see the english royals as well as the ones from the "continent". I expect to see Quen Margarethes sisters from England(Greece) and Germany.

A bit of news about Queen Margrethes 40 th jubilee next weekend.

http://www.seher.no/886540/mette-marit-til-koebenhavn

Crown Princess Mette-Marit (38) will next weekend visit Denmark to celebrate Queen Margrethe government anniversary.

 It has previously been known that Queen Sonja (74) and King Harald (74) would represent Norway, but the castle also confirms that Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon (38) will join the festivities.

 royal lunch
 While the Norwegian king and Queen already arrive Friday night, Mette Marit and Haakon arrives for the celebrations on Sunday 15 January.

 The day begins with a royal lunch at Frederik VII's Palace at Amalienborg, where Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will host the buffet.

 Then the guests proceed directly to the festive service at Christiansborg Palace Church before the royals get some breathing room and time to dress for the gala Table at Christiansborg Palace.

 sparkling tiaras
 Both Mette-Marit and Sonja are going to dress up in their sumptuous gala gowns, and hairdressers are ready to secure the tiara in her hair before they arrive at the solemn Table. Recently, Mette-Marit also have used older tiaras from the late Queen Maud.

 The Norwegian royal family owns a variety of tiaras and jewelry sets that have not been seen for many, many years, and it is expected that Mette-Marit will use some of these at the 40-anniversary celebration in Denmark.

 The Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Mette Marit will experience a warm reunion with the European royal families. The Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustav has also accepted the invitation.

 As Queen Margrethe's younger sister Anne Marie is the Queen of Greece, is probably the whole of the Greek royal family also expected, including Mette-Marit's good London friend, Princess Marie Chantal.

Extract from the paperissue of Billedbladet Jubilee magasin with interview of Q Margrethe:

-I'm looking forward to the jubilee. I think it is exciting that there actually has gone so many years. It is incomprehensibly because sometimes I think it was only yesterday and sometimes I think it has been forever.

(My translations is a bit difficult because the Queen always express herself a bit vague and poetic. She has of course been forced to express herself in this manner because she is not allowed to express any political views.)

-What is the monarchies biggest challenge?

-That is to keep balance.

-What do You remember from the day You was proclaimed to be the Queen?

-It made a huge impression to me that there was so many people as it was in the middle of winter and icy cold. As I stood on the balcony I thought "Now is the time" - for the moment my father had been looking forward to. That he had been hoping for. That I had to manage.

-You decided to be called Margrethe II. Why?

-Because I thought that den previous Queen Margrethe obviously was the first. (She was a monarch on behalf of her son but ruled Sweden, Norway an Denmark after political maneouvers) She was Queen in a different way but one has always perceived her as a Queen and it certainly was her that that controlled the performance at the time. So I thought it would be wrong to tell people that I was the first as I wasn't.

(..)

-How much can You see from the balcony? (referring to the balcony events at birthdays etc.)

-One can easily see the persons on the ground. On my 70th birthday there was so many danish flags. I don't think I have ever seen so many. I also always notice when there are other flags. There can be flags from Greenland and Færøerne. There are always australian flags and I think it is so wonderfull. That I notice immidiately.

(..)

-Are Your daughters in law different?

-Definitely, they are very different. The scottish in the Crownprincess is very strong, a very good strength. It is something about being grounded and realistic. To have both feet on the ground and yet more than just that. And then that she comes from a very good family. And Marie, that has the french background also comes with something that we all think is nice. We get the french once again. For my husbond off course a great delight (he is french) but also for me. And she really is a a sweet and lovely girl. One should not give ones family grades but it is difficult not to give them topgrades, the two.

(..)

-Have You always liked to sail?

-Yes I have always thought it was wonderfull. (..) The Crownprince has become a sailor himself. Even when the CP couple was in Australia they went sailing and I know he was looking forward to that.

(..)

-Are the danes different?

-They are not alike even though they are danes. To be in Northern Jutland is not the same as to come to Fun. and Eastern Jutland is not the same as Vestern Jutland. People from Sout Jutland has also their own way.

(..)

-What do You remember from the CP couples wedding?

-That it was a great and wonderfull event. We were so delighted. We were so pleased with our daughter in law and with our sons choice. Happy that he was happy and yes we were almost bursting with happiness. That the interest was so enormous had non of us expected even though we realised  it would draw some attention when the Crownprice married and everyone could see she was so lovely. It really was so sweet that everyone took part in the occasion. We had had the opportunity to get to know our daughter in law and we were very pleased with her. We thought that she was such a genuine person. And that she has also proven.

(..)

-When Prince Joachim married Alexandra it was also a big wedding?

-It certainly was. And it was so beautiful with the weather. Because we had snow as You may recollect? But the latest wedding was in Møgeltønder and it was a summerwedding. It was a lovely summer. Uh it was beautiful. It was a nice event.
(I'm guessing the Queen tries to turn the conversation away from Alexandras wedding to Maries wedding)

(..)

-Do You think CP Frederik will experience a 40th jubilee?

-That we can't know. But I have a feeling that could be a possibillity. Frederik has a big sense of responsibility and he has a serious intention. And w both believe that is something to pass to the next generation.

-When will CP Frederik get to the throne?

-That will be apparent. But I still felle it will be the day I drop of the stick (danish expression). And I think he is aware of this. I think he will be a great King. He has a lot of experience and super support from his wife.

-Do You give him advice?

-It is not that I give him advice. That I don't. But we discuss issues and he asks. We have a fantastic relationsship I think. And I think one can tell. The same goes indeed for Prince Joachim. We don't see eachother as much as Frederik and I, because we also work together besides that we get together off course. (Frederik and Q Margrethe live in two buildings next to each other).

Two women with power in Denmark
08th January 2012 12:00 Inland
Third October 2011 Denmark got its first female prime minister, when Helle Thorning-Schmidt to present its new SR-SF-government for the Queen and the Danes. It has left its mark on the conversations that the Prime Minister has with the queen.

- Occasionally, we come also to talk about things that are not just to do with the political. To celebrate 40 year anniversary, we obviously talked about becoming ruler of Denmark, and the experiences of the Queen has made. And we also talked a little about being the first woman in an office, says Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Inquisitive queen
Helle Thorning-Schmidt has met with an interested queen who asks about all current cases when she has her weekly briefing of the monarch on current political matters.

- She has a good insight in Danish foreign policy, and general political issues interest her too. I always write a little list of things I must remember to get mentioned.

- One of the things we obviously have talked about is the Danish EU Presidency, and it interests certainly the queen. What can we contribute and what they expect other countries? And then, there has been a full discussion of the so-called financial covenant as the euro countries have made. So there are a number of things that are so current that we must talk about them, and I feel that the Queen is interested.

New Prime Minister on the polished floors
- I've never felt it was awkward or difficult to come to these meetings.
- I tell what is happening. It's a real conversation, says Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Picture where primeminister Helle Thorning bowes to the Queen.

Videos of Queen Margrethe at the Parliament celebrating the 40th jubilee.

Arrival of QMII and CP Frederik and Mary. And the speach.
http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/article.php/id-47343227:lykketoft-kongehuset-er-et-holdepunkt.html

Afterwards photographs were taken
There was loving glances to a degree that one would not think there was talk about the Danish royal family.

 Queen Margrethe and her prince consort was, deeply in love as they appeared to photography in connection with the large-scale news conference Tuesday that Margtehe was the protagonist of thanks to her 40 year anniversary as ruler.

 When the royal couple sat on the sofa, there was virtuous distance in between them.

 But then the couple sent loving glances to each other.

 And when they again had to get up and stand, was the queen several times to kiss her husband - which obviously does not belong to during such an event.

 After a couple of Margaret UPS, where she was a little too close to her husband, lips, he planted a smack-kiss on his wife's cheek.

 Like two teens rose color to their heads and laughed away before they left the hall.

I like Mary's dress and cape, it's a bit boring but very pretty. Alexandra's is awful, but the tiara is so lovely.

Margrethe looked good but I prefer her birthday look.

Funny that Silvia and Sonja wore nearly the same colour! And is Marie Chantal pregnant or just fat?

Designer Jesper Høvring opinions:

Thinks that CP Mary had a black dress on that she had also worn in 2008.

Minister Margrethe Vestager has a beautifull dress in lilac with a big green bow on the front.

The swedish and norwegien was wearing the same fucsia red colour. Especially the norwegien Queen had wonderfull big sleeves down to the floor.

Countess Alexandra dressed in very great laces.

Designer Jesper Høvring opinions:

The latest dresses is very the same. Big skirts and with a slim waist.

But the dresses in the eighties was more special with assymetric and big sleeves.

The flowery raincoat is made of a tablecloth. The Queen wanted a raincoat that people coul see from a long distance.

The Rosenborg twins (Camilla and Josephine) opinions:

The raincoat is Horribly. They never themselves follow fashion. Josephine (or Camilla) tells that she at a galla event picked up her dress 5 minutes before the party. Green and yellow. But it was the wrong dress and she had no choice but to wear it. And she ended up at the worst dressed list that year. Another time she wore a yellow and blackdress and was referred to as a bumblebie.

I'm totally with you about this one Alexandrine. That Queen seems to genuinely enjoy her position and when I look at her dresses I think she would do fine in Disney fairy tale movie.  :tehe: I won't wear what she wears but at least she makes me dream dancing with big and original gowns  :flirt:

It was so cute when Isabella only wanted to sit with her parents, she was like no way I'm going to sit in the second row  :tehe: But I thought that Joachim could have let her sit in his chair.  :dontknow:

Can you tell me what kind of tiara is Marie Chantal using today? In the photo of the dr.dk seems to be a fringe but I'm not sure, thanks!  :loveshower:


Title: Re: Queen Margrethe's 40th anniversary in the Throne
Post by: HC on January 15, 2012, 08:46:32 pm
I'm not sure what a fringe is.

But it looked like the biggest tiara I've seen. Anna von Lowsow - expert in royal juwels - didn't mention it even if she mentioned a lot of the others.

I don't think Joachim would give up his seat for anyone. He is very oldfashioned compared to a danish point of view. He has par example said that it is crusial to him to get a son because he want to see his line continue. And in another case he has said it was very important that he some years ago was appointed count de la borde de montpezat, because he then also could see that he had a father. Quite ridicolous as his father never was count de la borde de montpezat. Someone in the family would have been a count if certain papers were signed but they weren't -  and even if they had been signed the line that the Princeconsort Henri de la borde de montpezat belongs to, would never have been counts - according to the Princeconsorts own biography.

Isabella is a cutie. She really liked sitting on her fathers lap. She is known to be a tom boy. The commentators made a joke about Isabella had to sit by her parents.

Can you post the link to this night gala? Or is it not already posted?

I know that about Joachim, he sounds like a snob. And the monpezat thing is kinda ridiculous  :bored:

Fringe: is like a pyramid, it's the type that Benedikte is wearing today and Marie Chantal's yesterday tiara.

Marie-Chantal looks great in the fringe and the tiara. I sort of like the tiara the best.

Funny all of the jewels got out. I saw an interview with Anne-Marie, where she told that they took almost nothing out of Greece because she thought they would return. But I would also have taken the jewels in such circumstances.

I remember the anecdote that when they had to go they went so quickly out of the country that they didn't even wait for Prince Phillip's mother that still lived in Greece at that moment.

But consider that it was not the first time that they had been exiled so at least Queen Federica must have known how to act at that moment.

Great link Chocolate Princess.
I agree that the blue dress with the big "shoulders" is ugly. It looks lige a night gown with too much fabric topping at the shoulders. (Princess Maries Lady of Waiting Britt Siesbye wearing a Charlotte Eskildsen. Never heard of the designer though.)

I do think that CP Mary has talked about the velvet dress with Queen Margrethe. (CP Marys dress is an old dress from 2004.)

And again I think that Marie-Chantal and Carina may have phoned Mary about "what are you wearing" and "I'm wearing green and then you can wear red velvet".)

Title: Queen Margrethe married a commoner
Post by: HC on February 01, 2012, 06:10:34 pm
Prince Henrik is the first non royal spouse and non aristocrat. Until then no non royal or non nobility had been accepted in the course of Denmark's history as a hereditary monarchy prior to Hereditary Princess Margrethe's marriage in June 1967.

According to:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Monpezat

This is also described in the first biography about Prince Henrik. The family actually werent counts. The family would have been noble if some document had been signed. And even if it had been signed, Henri didn't belong to that line of the family.


Title: Re: Queen Margrethe married a commoner
Post by: Alexandrine on February 01, 2012, 06:20:32 pm
There is so much mistery surrounding Henri's ancestry, or at least they try to sell us a false story. I cannot see the need to make all the family count of Monpezat.



Title: Re: Queen Margrethe married a commoner
Post by: HC on February 01, 2012, 06:51:05 pm
Alexandrine
I totally agree.

I simply don't understand why Queen Margrethes 2 sons has to be given the title counts. The father Prince Henrik wasn't aristocratic to begin with. So why make up this count de Montpezat title to the 2 sons, when it has been false all along?

My guess is that when Prince Henrik furiously complained to the press about the court treating him like nr. 3 and not nr. 2 - the Queen named him Princesonsort instead of his previous title Prince. And the make believe count title was perhaps also given to their 2 sons, to make Henrik happy again.  HAHA.


Title: Re: Queen Margrethe married a commoner
Post by: Alexandrine on February 01, 2012, 07:01:17 pm
And even if it was true, only Frederic would get the title after his father's death. The funny thing is that everyone gets the count title even the grand kids like the prince title. It's all so illogical, presumptuous and redundant  :-X

I see Henri as very gold diggerish and very conceited, if it wasn't for Margrethe no one would know about him and now he is even jealous of his son's position.



Title: Re: Queen Margrethe married a commoner
Post by: HC on February 01, 2012, 07:19:22 pm
Thats true. I haven't thought about how meaningless to give both sons the title  ???

P Joachim has stated that it meant a lot to him to see his parental heritage in his own name   :-

A point of view that also is quite illogical and conceited. Why should it mean a lot to have his father name - he also have a mother; that I don't get - and why should he want a false name.

Yes. The worst part is Henrik being jealous of his own son. That I really don't understand.

For some reason, the Prince Consorts have always been jealous of their sons; perhaps it comes from not being able to be king in one's own right and it kind of disgusts me that Henrik once mentioned that he looked forward to the day that men were as equla as women. IF these Prince Consorts didn't want ot walk two steps behind, WHY MARRY THE FUTURE QUEEN!????????

They are only prince consorts because the title of queen is considered in most of the countries as being lower than the king title. If women were not considered inferior Henri would be king. So his comment is not funny, just pathetic.

I feel kind of sad for prince consorts because they wanted the queen wife while still having the "norma" family of their era which was kind of impossible. But really no one made them marry.  :bored:

Alexandrine I will give it a try.
But some words are too sweedish. I might add that Marselisborg is one of the estates that the royal family own themselves. The estate was a wedding gift to Queen Ingrid. Besides this estate I think they also own a hunting cabin and the estate in France.

At home with Margrethe

The Hall takes up a lot of space so we have nearly not enough room for visitors. The architect has not thought of that. That means that Margrethe almost never has parties at Marselisborg. Here they almost only socialise with family. And Mary, frederik and the children always stay at the cavallier wing when there are visiting.

Title: Princeconsort Henrik whining again - wants to be King
Post by: HC on February 02, 2013, 11:35:44 am
Princeconsort Henrik is whining once again. Now to a french mag.

Quote
Prince Henry: I am being treated unfairly. The frenchman complain again that he is not king of Denmark. He has in over 45 years lived in Denmark as a prince and prince consort.
But it's just not enough for Prince Henrik.
Now kicking the 78-year-old Frenchman is again complaining about that he never became king of Denmark.
It happens in an interview in the French magazine Point de Vue, where he and Princess Marie are interviewed about being French in the Danish royal family.
And according to Henry, Marie has it much easier than him.
– You, my dear daughter, have a normal marriage where you and your husband are equel. He is a prince and you are a princess. But that's not in my case.  There is no reason why I should not be at the same level as my wife complains Henrik again about the role as underdog compared to Margaret.
Previously, he muttered that he was not king, when kings wives are queens. And despite his privileged life and its fine title that makes people bowing and scraping, the humiliation is burning in the proud Frenchman.
–  I mean, and I will think this to the day I die, I'm number two. And by the way, I'm not the only one who feel this way.  Prince Philip share the attitude.  It's a reverse discrimination, says Henrik.
And pointing again at the past as an argument that he should be addressed as king.
–  For 5000 years ago queens made their men to kings. The English system was the exception and it was followed by Denmark and the Netherlands.  And I do not know why, he says.
 And send the following tirade, which can only be directed against the queen, who ultimately decided that Henry must remain prince consort:
– The injustice is difficult to handle.
 It is not only the lack of royal title, which gave Henry a hard time in the sweet life on the polished floors. In an interview for more than ten years ago he cried that the Danes and the court believed that Crown Prince Frederik was number two on the ladder, while he was demoted to third pladsen. At that time he fled to his chateau, where he licked the wounds until the family came down and in the presence of the press calmed him.
Ekstra Bladet has previously revealed that Prince Henrik is so sure that he should be king, that during a trip to Sicily introduced himself as king of Denmark.
 There is not much evidence to suggest that Queen Margrethe is free of Henrys unrelenting wishes to become king.
Despite 45 years of rejections of what can only be described as his most burning desire.

http://translate.google.dk/translate?sl=da&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=da&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fekstrabladet.dk%2Fflash%2Fkongelige%2Fdanskekongelige%2Farticle1912767.ece

I think Princeconsort Henrik is a victim of delusions of grandeur. He has no goodwill in the population. Everytime the danes think that perhaps we should give him credit for his work or his poetry and sculptures, he says something idiotic as children should be slapped, that danish food is not as good as french, french culture and language should be protected from the influence of english or that he ought to be no.2 or he should be king.


Title: Re: Princeconsort Henrik whining again - wants to be King
Post by: Alexandrine on February 02, 2013, 12:05:16 pm
Again? Even if he is king he should be number two because he is simply the consort.

Injustice? Injustice is for the poor danish people who treat him like a king (pun intended) but he only can whine and act like a five year old. If he hadn't been lucky to catch Margrethe he woudl still be a second rate diplomat in some forgotten country.

Now I really think that Margrethe and him do not have a very good marriage.

Princeconsort Henrik is going on a diet.

Quote
I've been slim all my life, but the last ten years less slim. So I'll have to eliminate bread, potatoes, rice and wine from my diet. He says further, he with age has almost become a vegetarian and therefore do not expect it to be a problem to stick to fish and vegetables.

-  But wine! . It's getting harder.  Not least because I produce myself. And what will wine connoisseurs not say if I do not drink my own wine? I at least have to taste it, jokes Prince Henrik in the interview and stresses, however, that he has acquired the French nobility tradition from the 1300 century and always mixes water in his wine.

- Since I found out that the rulers of the time mixed water into wine, I have done the same, he says.

http://translate.google.dk/translate?sl=da&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=da&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bt.dk%2Froyale%2Fnu-skal-prins-henrik-paa-skrump

The readers of the newspaper Jyllandsposten (a conservative nwespaper) thinks he should not be king. If one look carefully between the many comments, however we can find individual who supports his view that he should have the title of king, because

Quote
Most readers disagree with Prince Henrik in that he should be king.

It has Saturdays aroused a heated debate among Jyllands-Posten's readers that Prince Henrik to a French magazine has reiterated his view that he should have the title King of Denmark.

"There is no reason why I should not be at the same level as my wife," said Prince Henrik.

Most of the readers who participated in the debate here on the site and on Facebook , disagree with the Prince Consort in that it would be reasonable, that he became king, but there are also those readers who can follow his arguments.

These are the conditions. You must from the outset have known that it was the conditions. Ungrateful wretch. Sigh," writes Heidi Melgaard among others, and this commentary summarizes many of the hundreds of comments that are obtained in the course of the day.

 Several calls Prince Henrik to be retired in France and is even ready to let him have a pension, while a few points to the fact that Prince Henry cannot become king of Denmark, since we already have a head of state Queen Margrethe .

"Strange that Prince Henrik has no idea how things work in this country, and it is more strange that the head of state Queen Margrethe, or at least her advisers, can not get the prince to understand the context. But he may feel that we must invent a new word when it is a queen who is ruler? " writes Anders Hansen.

 If you look carefully between the many comments, however we can find individual who supports his view that he should have the title of king, because a woman married to a king will become queen.

(..)
Some highlights even Prince Henrik's personal qualities as an argument that he should be awarded the title of king:

"Let Henrik become king. Heavens., He is down to earth and has a sense of humor. Fine guy," said Torben Nielsen.

http://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/article5128193.ece

Well I don't know if he has a sense of humour but is known to be smoothing the waters when QMII get a fit on guests. I agree that it is Strange that Prince Henrik has no idea how things work in this country, and it is more strange that the head of state Queen Margrethe, or at least her advisers, can not get the prince to understand the context

I personally don't think QMII is bonkers. She suffers fools badly.  :laugh:
And don't mind telling people if they say something stupid.

I remember when NOMA was prized as the best restaurant in the world. Prince Henrik was asked what he thought of danish cooking compared to french. He said that he liked french the best.  :-
QMII was standing next to him and looked like she tried not to tell him her mind.  :-X

Why couldn't he just have said he was so happy for NOMA, and he liked their cooking very much - but also liked french cooking off course.  :bat:

Prince Henrik will be queen
By the RokokoPost (Satire from the conservative paper Jyllandsposten)
The former prince consort has finally been equel with his wife and will henceforth be addressed as queen of Henry I. It happens after Henrik for many years have been unhappy with his position in the royal hierarchy.


Quote
In a short time got a Facebook group 'Henrik is our hearts queen! "More than 2 million likes, while more conservative MF'ere initiated a partial hunger strike, where they refused to eat anything other than foie gras and white wine until Henry was equivalent to his spouse.

The country's largest queen
 After a constitutional amendment and a pair of referendums the prince achieved full equality and dignity as our own queen.

It is therefore a very happy queen Henrik that received the newspaper Rococo in audience.

The newly minted queen also explains that he does not think it will be a problem with two queens.

"On the contrary!  Margaret and I will amicably compete to be the best. With time I am sure that people will recognize that I am the biggest queen, "says Henrik queen with a smile.

True, QM is not as bad as Henrik.  I just find her a bit eccentric at times.   And I really dislike Mary, and can't see why QM allowed her to join the family.  But Mary is not as bad as Kate.  I would rather have Mary than Kate in my RF (the BRF).

I think QM knew that Mary was going to be the best that Fred was going to find and would want to marry him.

Mary is very gold-diggerish but she at least seems to take her job seriously.

As I understand Queen Ingrid said to Margrethe when she told about Henrik: "Have You really thought this through". Apparently that was Queen Ingrids usual remark when she wanted to speak with large letters.  :tehe:

But apart from this little story I certainly don't think ones parents should decide with whom one get married to. Neither a Queen.

Even so, the Queen actually has to tell whether she approves to the state of council. And after this approval the State of council also have to approve.

The part about the state of council I agree on, because we have to prevent the Crown prince from marrying par example Hitler or Eva Braun, or Wallis Simpson (as I consider her a nazi too).

I consider Wallis Simpson a Nazi too. Actually I think the Duke of Windsor was even more of a Nazi.

Queen Margrethe would have been able to persuade Fred not to marry Mary if she wanted this, but I think she thought Mary would be good for the monarchy, and I think she has been, she's very popular in Denmark.  Mary has a lot of secrets from her past that she has managed to keep hidden from her fans - I don't think they want to believe in anything other than the fairytale.

Well, Spice

Just write what You know and have heard here.

It is true that in Denmark CP Mary is only critisized for being too perfect. Hard working good looking, but also too difficult to live up to.

I think the good looking part, is also because she looks very english and that is in Denmark considered excotic.

Although I know that Mary's past is not perfec and her cv has been embellished considering who gets the princess title these days her "scandals" are nothing.

The things that I dislike more is inviting the relation that was a sexual offender to the wedding, the strange australian friend she has and that relationship with the drug dealer (?) though in the last case they were friends of Fred.

There's been a lot of coverage of Mary in other forums, and even a controversial book claimed to have been written by an insider: 1015 Copenhagen K - An (un-)loving and critical portrait of the DRF by Trine Villemann.

Mary's life before meeting Fred was very ordinary, some would say quite trashy, and that all negatives have been airbrushed out and she has been made to look pure as the driven snow.  Like I said, before Kate came along, I thought Mary was a walking disaster for European royalty, but Kate makes her look respectable.  In many ways the Danish people are getting much better value for money from Mary than the British are getting from Kate and William put together.

I think the drugdealer You are referring to is Rigmor Zobel. As I recall Rigmor Zobel ended up being only charged and convicted for drugs for her own use. But a serious matter for a woman that has a law degree and have to earn a living. As I understand she has been able to find work even after this conviction.

Rigmor Zobel is the daughter of one of Prince Henriks close friends as they hunt together. And she is still part of the jetset. As I'm informed she is not only a friend to Fred but also knows Countess Alexandras husbond from childhood.

Yes I remember something about a relative being a sex offender. No one really took notice about this relative. Perhaps one of You could shed some light on this. Some details perhaps.

Perhaps one of You could also get into more detail about the strange australian friends. As I understand she knows Amber Petty, the scientist Nadine Johnston, Hamish Campbell also a university friend, Simone Wolf a childhoodfriend, Chris Meehan employer and married to a dane, and Josephine Rechner working in a communicationfirm.

I'm not aware of any embellishment of the cv. The cv embellisment was a scandal about Princess Marie.

Apparently there is not any dirt on CP Mary or skeletons in her cupboard, according to chiefeditor from the top tabloid magazine "Se & Hør". The chiefeditor is interviewed in a book about CP Mary by Jim Lyngvild.

I don't think Trine Villemann is an insider. As I understand she has been a reporter at the very royalistic magazine "Billedbladet". But due to her husbonds work she moved abroad and spend her time writing this book. She has now returned to Denmark. Back in Denmark she seems to have gotten a surprisingly new agenda. Recently she wrote that CP Mary could be empress if she wanted to, due to her popularity while Henrik will never get any break in anything.

Kate makes all of us look respectable .........

Quote
Queen Margrethe is part of a very large group of patients suffering from the very painful osteoarthritis disease spinal stenosis.  Often, surgery is the only option to give the patients a life without constant pain in the back and sciatic pain down the legs, as a result of the pain feels heavy as lead. But 10 years after surgery, it has been apparent to everyone that the disease has now returned to the royal back with such force that the ruler had to cancel the state visit to Chile in March.

This is my own personal theori about Trines change of heart about CP Mary:

Trine was some month ago in the radio about bullying. Apparently Trine and her family has returned to Denmark but Trines son has experienced bullying at his new school.

At the same time CP Mary has done a lot about bullying amongst children. Her project is going from school to school in the whole country.

This makes me wonder if Trine has gotten a new perspective about CP Mary.

Trine said the bullying was horrific, but she didn't mention it should have anything to do with Trines notoriety.

As Trine is not known to the public as such I find it more likely that her sons "friends" don't know anything about his mother.

It was a pure family affair for Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark as he celebrated his 80th birthday on Wednesday.

The celebrant and his wife Queen Margrethe II were joined by their sons, Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim, and their eight grandchildren.

The Danish clan opted to ring in the milestone birthday in Henrik's native France by travelling to Château de Cayx, their royal residence located in the southern wine district of Cahors.

It seems Henrik may not be retiring as completely as many on Twitter etc think. According to the Danish Court Chamberlain's communique he intends to keep most of his patronages, as well as concentrate more on artistic and cultural events which are his favourites. So, it seems to me that Henri is avoiding most of the duller State occasions where he will increasingly play third fiddle to his wife and elder son, and cherry pick the rest as he wishes. I feel sorry for Daisy as I'm sure she'll miss his presence on many public engagements, but I don't think she or the family will miss the temper tantrums about not being a King Consort.

The royal house has today announced that his Royal Highness Prince Henrik does not want to be buried in Roskilde Cathedral, as it has otherwise been planned.
The Prince's decision implies that the Prince will not lie next to her Majesty Queen under the sarcophagus that Professor and sculptor Bjørn Nørgaard has prepared.

The Queen has for some time been familiar with the decision of the Royal Highness and agrees with the decision. The Prince's decision does not change the Queen's funeral plans.

It has been promoted in the media that the Prince wants to be buried in France. This is not correct. The prince still wishes to be buried in Denmark, but the circumstances are not yet in place.

^ Truly, it is super strange to not want to be buried together, whether as normal couple or high profile couple whose names and bios will end up in history books.
Frankly I can't wrap my mind around this  :-


Title: Re: Q. Margrethe & Prince Henrik: News and Pics
Post by: Rosella on August 04, 2017, 02:58:30 am
The Danish court had to answer the rumours IMO, as a gossip magazine printed a story last week, from apparently good sources, that Prince Henrik would not be buried with his wife in the sarcophagus Queen Margrethe had helped to  design and in fact he wanted to be buried in France.

That last bit isn't true and the court was quick to deny it. However the fact remains that Prince Henrik wishes to be buried away from his wife of fifty years, (they just celebrated their golden wedding) away from the cathedral where Danish royals have been buried for over five hunded years, but elsewhere in Denmark.

Not surprisingly this news has caused a sensation in Denmark and now it's all round international media. Apparently Danes have taken it to mean that Henrik is still angry and annoyed at not being King Henrik, and this all stems from that. This spoiled man child is taking his grievances to the grave and beyond. In the process he is slapping his wife and children and the whole DRF in fact, in the face in the most blatant way.

Of course, this has heightened the rumours that, since he first had his tantrum about not being 'equal' to his wife, he's gone off in a huff and the royal couple have more or less split, only see each other when he chooses. Queen Daisy has accepted his decision to be buried elsewhere (has known for some time) but apparently Danes are majorly annoyed with Henrik.

Some want him to go off permanently to France, there may be calls for his apanage (allowance) to be pulled and some Danes would like the Queen to divorce him. That isn't going to happen but if he pulls any more stunts like this Danes are going to be really angry. The Queen might decide to abdicate in favour of her son if this thing rumbles on too long.. Frederik will be fifty next year. Wonder whether Daddy will turn up for the birthday party!!

This all comes of course one day after Prince Philip, another consort, lays down his burden after 65 plus years of royal duties and loyalty to his Queen.

Sh*t is hitting the fan in Denmark hard. Henrik gave an interview, saying that Margrethe didn't give him "the respect a wife should", and "just because they are married doesn't mean they have to be buried together", that "she made a fool out of him" and that spouses should be "equal"; which is in translation basically: "I'm throwing a tantrum of epic proportions, because I still hold a grudge that Marge/ Danish parliament didn't give me the title of 'King (Consort)'." smh
When he was recently hospitalized, staff came to pic him up with his dog, none of the family. I guess he's alienated them all now.

"My wife has decided she wants to be queen and I am very happy. But as a human being, she must know that if a husband and wife are married, they are equal, says the prince of the magazine."

Yes, equal, which means they are equal partners, not of equal rank. "Queen" is always seen as below "king", and just because the female consorts are officially "queens" and sign "[Name] R.", they still lack any real power. How he can't get that in his thick skull is beyond me. Philip and Elizabeth had similar issues, and they solved it the same way Marge & Henrik did: she's head of state, he's head of home. Worked out for the Winds, but that this man can hold this silly grudge still after all these decades!!!
And he's preposterous to say Marge "decided/ chose" to be queen, she was born to be it and he knew the score from the beginning, it's not like she became queen unexpectedly as 5th in line or something like that and even then he'd know the score that she'd be above him in rank.

I really don't get him at all and that he's so willing to throw a tantrum which alienates his whole family! Mad.

He's throwing a tantrum because he's a chauvinistic a*se; us women are still seen beneath men, we still earn less than men for the very same job and are overlooked for promotions in favour of our male colleagues; we still face struggles in work place and elsewhere. In the UK (and elsewhere!) still men only clubs exist!!! In country clubs even women can't enjoy the same treatment and offer as men.
And poor Henrik can't get over a silly title, even though he was born without any title whatsoever and even though Marge bent over backwards for him, creating French sounding new fanatsy titles for him and their kids for him and in his honour. Unbelievable.

Queen Daisy is expected to join her loving husband shortly for a couple of weeks holiday. Should be interesting! If it isn't senility (and he should be medically assessed) it's hard to know what Henrik's no doubt appalled family are going to do about this man. He quite obviously isn't going to shut up, and pulling his apanage (as has been suggested) is only going to make things worse. In the past he's allowed himself to be pacified after one or another of his tantrums, but just lately....! What a pity this isn't the 16th century, a nice isolated castle somewhere would be ideal!

It IS not senility. He threw a similar tantrum the first time Fred assumed his position next to Margrethe. He went to France and abandoned his responsibilities. He is simply an idiot of epic proportions. If I was Margrethe I would divorce after that interview.

Margrethe and Henrik were such bad parents at least you could say that they did their royal work well but that is not the case with Henrik. Now it seems that he was a good grandfather but I am starting to doubt that. So he threw tantrums and did not his job and he was a bad father, so what has he done during the last what 50 years?

From google translate

"Following a longer investigation process and most recent studies conducted during the late summer, a specialist team at Rigshospitalet has now concluded that his Royal Highness Prince Henrik suffers from dementia. It informs Queen Margrethe via the court march in a press release.

The diagnosis implies a weakening of the Prince's cognitive function level. The extent of the cognitive failure is, according to Rigshospitalet, greater than expected for the age of the Prince, and can be accompanied by changes in behavior, reaction patterns, judgment and emotional life, and thus also affect the interaction with the outside world, writes the royal house.

As a consequence of the diagnosis, the Prince will further dodge his activities in the future, as well as the protection and protection of honor. It is the Queen and the royal family's wish that the Prince will in future get the peace that the situation requires."

Very sad news, but it explains quite a bit and good that people know, it's a legitimate and good way to excuse him, people will have more understanding.

^  I have suspected this.   Sad.  I believe that Henrik's sons had a difficult relationship with him, but he seemed to be a loving, hands-on grandfather, and it's a shame all those children are missing out on that.

Danish news sites are reporting that Prince Henrik's condition 'has unfortunately worsened'. (He has a tumour on his lung.) That's happened in the last few hours.  Crown Prince Frederik has returned to Denmark from South Korea where he was going to attend the Winter Olympics.

I'm afraid the worse is yet to come for Prince Henrik. If Crown Prince Frederik is on his way back, that's really significant.

Sad news for the family.

Crown Princess Mary with Christian and Isabella (she and Frederik's two older children) went to the hospital and stayed for half an hour. Isabella has always been especially close to her granddad.

Prince Henrik’s condition worsens
Crown Prince Frederik has returned from South Korea to join other members of the Danish Royal Family at his father’s bedside

The Danish Court announced today that the condition of Prince Henrik, the prince consort, has severely deteriorated.

Crown Prince Frederik has flown home ahead of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea, which he was attending in his role as an IOC member.

Prince Henrik, who is suffering from dementia, has been hospitalised since January 28, when he was admitted for tests and follow-ups to his hospital stay in August last year.

http://cphpost.dk/news/prince-henriks-condition-worsens.html



Since the end of January, 83-year-old Prince Consort Henrik has been hospitalized with a tumor in his left lung.

The tumor has proven to be benign, and Henrik has since then been undergoing treatment for pulmonary infection.

Prince Consort Henrik allegedly fell ill during a trip to Egypt and was admitted to the hospital after returning home to Denmark in januray.

The whole royal family including the eight grandchildren of Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik are all at the hospital now. One of Prince Henrik sisters, who is also a nun in France, is also on her way to Denmark.

It does not look good at all sadly.

Prince Henrik of Denmark has received more visitors in hospital after his condition sadly worsened. Queen Margrethe II's husband is being treated at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, and over the weekend, his family were out in full force to be at his bedside. The couple's eldest son Crown Prince Frederik was forced to cut short his stay in South Korea, where he was attending the Winter Olympics as an International Olympic Committee member, to return home to be with his father. He was pictured visiting the hospital with his wife Crown Princess Mary and their children Prince Christian, 12, Princess Isabella, ten, and seven-year-old twins Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent.

Prince Henrik has been transferred today from the hospital to Fredensborg Castle.
His wish is to remain there for ' his last times' according to the Court statement. His condition remain serious.

No doubt about a sad issue now. But at least he will be with his family there with him and with more privacy.
