Come look", and she ran out her study and on to the deck. When on the deck, she waved 'her boys' in the navy who had lined up on deck, saluting Her Majesty, and then Her Majesty proudly said: "That is damned fine!". It was fun to see the Queen so proud and almost childishly ecstatic.

What a lovely story Lasse! Thanks for sharing it. Did she really swear in front of the camera? hehe... it's ok... she meant it in a positive way.

Yes, she did swear (using the Danish: 'fandeme'), and has done so in front of cameras before. I remember once when she was putting up a painting (or another work of art, I am not sure), and reporters were crowding her, so she said: "I cannot bloody concentrate with you standing so closely" (using the Danish 'sgu'). The reporters immediately backed off Her Majesty has actually admitted, in the book 'Margrethe', that her swearing becomes more frequent... but what can you expect from the daughter of a sailor?

It gives another dimension to the arrival when the Dannebrog is sighted and approaching.

Not just a boring jumbo jet on a windy airport and an ordinary line of limos

I agree wholeheartedly!

And what a "damned" fine interior it is, too! It's so wonderful that modern technology has made the world a much smaller place - how else would we have all this (literally) at our fingertips? :p

As much as I think the blueish stripe interior is nice and sober, from what I can see on the pictures the whole furniture in all the lounge rooms are the same style. I have to say I find that a little institutional, it wouldn't harm with one room in some Laura Ashley flowerish style.

I'd like to suggest one lounge with furniture with Queen Ingrid roses in the pattern.

I really like the golden / iron bar at the stair case.

According to this press release http://www.ees.dk/5a90029 from Export Promotion Denmark, a conference called Greek-Danish Business Forum will take place in Athens from May 24 to May 26 in connection with the state visit of HM the Queen and HRH the Prince Consort of Denmark. Thus, I think we can expect to see HRH the Prince Consort participating in a lot of export promotion!

Yes, let ud hope so. Climbing the Acropolis of Athens could be a problem for Her Majesty.

NEWS from the Royal Danish Court: The Reigning Couple will stay in Greece until May 29. Thus, The Queen and The Prince Consort will visit Greece privately as well.

Well, doesn't she make a pretty picture? If that's the presidential couple with them on the red carpet, then they must be the most sullen-looking folk. They look like they've missed their lunch and are not happy about it...

I wonder how King Constatine feels about this trip? Do we have any Greek members who can report on the publicity and the reception of the Greek hosts for Her Majesty and HRH?

And I love the blue..she looks great!

Aaaaaaaaaargh!

I know it's a pretty "restrained" (or just plain strained) visit, esp. as far as the Greek media is concerned, but WHY ARE THERE NO BANQUET PICS, yet???? Been looking everywhere...:(

Despite the pretty photographs it is still a horrible appeal to me that
the royal couple is received by a republican president, instead of their
sister and brother-in-law!
