My Great Aunt [who lived on the Norfolk coast of England] married a Dane [just before the outbreak of WW11. His sister [in her late teens] remained, with her family in Copenhagen and had some sympathy for, and vague contacts with the Resistance. She told of one time when notes regarding the hiding places of Jews threatened with deportation to the Death Camps would have been discovered but for her [quick-wittedly] shoving them into a plant pot.

She [and the rest of her family were held in grave suspicion by the collaborating authorities, principally because the had a family member who had married an 'enemy'.. she said VE {Victory in Europe} Day was one of the happiest of her existence, as the relief was overwhelming !

So when i see the Queen of Denmark at the upcoming commemoration i will think of her, and all her brave compatriots who risked everything to save their fellow men from the ghastly fate planned for them by this most evil of occupiers, and not of the many,many supine collaborators of which Muhler speaks.

BB has a pic of QMII attending service at Aarhus Cathedral today: Dronning Margrethe begyndte påsken med kirkegang | Billed Bladet

Being the devout Christian she is, it's a safe guess that she will attend service every day during Easter.

BB informs us that Prince Henrik went to a circus show while in Aarhus: Prins Henrik morede sig i cirkus | Billed Bladet
And had a very merry time.

No grandchildren, so we may safely assume they only dropped by on the birthday.

The circuses visiting Aarhus are always placed on the beach, very close to Marselisborg. It also means that the elephants are marched out into the water, when they need to be washed. And that's something they thoroughly enjoy on a hot day!

PH was out having fun in Tivoli last night: Julie Steincke i Grøften med prins Henrik | Billed Bladet
As a member of the Tivoli Club of 1868.

Along with a number of other merry ladies and gentlemen they dined at the pretty pricey restaurant in Tivoli, Grøften. (Which actually means The Ditch).
Here he is seen with his table partner, Julie Steincke.

- Each year PH supports the two main fairgrounds in Copenhagen: Tivoli and Bakken. - It's a hard job, but someone's gotta do it.

Bakken (The Hill) was, and some would claim still is..., an amusement ground for the more common people...and as such the entertainment there was more, shall we say lewd and rowdy. While the more dignified citizens went to Tivoli.
Nowadays, there isn't that big a difference reputation wise. Tivoli is very much aimed at the tourists - and so are the prices... while Bakken is more affordable.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2014.
Written by Trine Larsen.

Prince Henrik attended the Spring Session of the Tivoli Club of 1868 in Tivoli Copenhagen recently.

One of the criterias for even being a member is that you must have a good sense of humour, so it was a merry gathering in restaurant Grøften. Among thme were also the mayor of Copenhagen, Frank Jensen, who was presented with a small cask of wine, in honor of the mayor having started his career as a bingo-host...

Inbetween singing and appropriately silly traditions there was also time to chat. And PH had a good chat with his table partner, Julie Steincke. She's a singer, I believe. So good in fact that he invited her for a cup of coffee afterwards at another restaurant after which the separated. PH took a short stroll through the Tivoli garden, confiding to our reporter: "I'll have to try the roller coatser another day, perhaps with my grandchildren".
(Notice that it was crawling with press and people in Tivoli, yet no one has even hinted at the word flirt).
The sprechstallmeister or lead singer if you like, was Flemming Krøll and he and PH sang a duet to "Oh When The Saint".

And for those spring chickens among us who don't know that merry song, here it is:

I bet she is actually going to read them - and with delight!
The new translation of the sagas will interest her a lot and I also bet she has previously been doing some study of them - in Icelandic.

Icelandic being the language that today is the closest to how the Vikings actually spoke.

They also got a very famous poet, Þórarinn Eldjárn, the son of a former president of Iceland, to write her an ancient form of praise poem that was used in the days of the vikings called "dróttkvæði" or "drotkvæde" in Danish, the poem was named "Margrétarlof" or "Margrethe praise".
