Such is the world of political change.

Perhaps the media were not allowed at the Banquet, who knows...only time shall tell.

Apparently HM the Queen wore the Baden Palmette Tiara, as seen below.

Angry

Such an elegant lady - BUT: what is it about her teeth?... Can't she see how ugly and unappetizing they are?

Was just thinking the same!! Looking at these wonderful pictures, I have to wonder what, privately, Margarethe is thinking of this visit: after all, her own sister used to be Queen of Greece! Ana Marie was in fact the last quee Greece ever had, and was of course unceremoniously kicked out with her spouse Constantine in the late sixties..

Sure that's a long time ago, but still..wonder how, privately, this visit was discussed with Constantine. But otoh, didn't Constantine's sister, Sophia queen of Spain, also officially visit Greece awhile back with king JC?

Wow she looks just incredible! And the tiara, never seen it before, it looks like it's straight out of a fairy tale!

And as for her teeth...what I like about Margarethe is that she seems to be a "what you see is what you get" kindof woman. she is what and who she is and is unapologetic about it. Unlike some queens who are rumored to have had a nip and tuck here and there, Margarethe is accepting her age and seems not afraid to grow old naturally (pretty brave if you have to do that while being in the public eye).

Well - I don't think accepting one's age and not remember to brush one's teeth is the same thing...

To me Her majesty is every inch an elegant, dignified and lovely woman and I'm very proud to be her subject. But - I think it's a shame that her teeth gets all the attention from her other qualities... That's all!

I hope I have not misinformed you princess olga.

The above photohgraph is not from the Greek State Visit but from one of the Norwegian Royal Weddings, I believe. The aim of the photograph was to show the Baden Palmette Tiara for those who had not seen it before.

Unfortunately, still no pictures from the State Banquet :(

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik were originally scheduled to have an extended private visit to Greece, after the official state-visit. But:
Quote:
Margrethe is leaving early because of her knee.

The Queen's visit to Greece interrupted because of knee surgery.

Queen Margrethe is going home after the official visit to Greece, for surgery on her left knee.

"I am going home to get a new knee. It's about time that I'll get it fixed," said the Queen at a press conference.

"It also means that I'll cut drastically down on my duties iin June, and transfer them to Crown Prince Frederik and the Prince Consort."

The surgery will take place at Århus Municipal hospital, but it was not known on Thursday if the Queen will go directly from Greece to the hospital.

The official programme for the visit ends Friday, and after that, it was intended that the Queen and Prince Henrik were going to vacation together for a few days, at the royal yacht, Dannebrog. The Prince will do that alone, now.

"It would have been lovely, if we could have sailed together for five or six days," said Prince Henrik

Thanks for that norwegianne, i hope her knee feels better soon. One of the worst things is to be in pain or sick while in a foreign country.

Great pictures! :)
The Queen looks fantastic!

Did the Queen recycle her Gala dress? It looked so well-known to me.

Well, if post no. 44 is to be believed her husband would prefer to sail, rather than be by her side. Not that I blame him...sailing around the Greek isles in THAT yacht...I'd ditch anybody! I'm sure he has confidence in the surgeons back home.

I have always admired the Queen's - "like me as I am" type of attitude. That is inner strength and I think that she has that in an abundance. I absolutle love the way she has grace and can still laugh at the same time. I hate to say this but Mary has "HUGE" shoes to fill and still many things that she can learn from her mother-in-law.
