Thank you Nordic for explaining why the animals are laid out in the way they are. It's always good to understand traditions and the reasons why something is done in a particular culture.

Thanks Nordic for the explanation. There is a meaning to the madness (DK idiom).

And I think you may be right. This tradition may fade out, both as the Regent Couple (thanks Nordic) and their friends grow older but also because this really isn't Mary.
Game parade? - Wellll... And dragging the unfortunate female guests around to museums? - I think Frederik would be a better guide as he is keenly interested in art.

So perhaps our Marie will take over as the main hostess? This hunting-thing is I believe something she is more accustomed to.

Whoever will take over as hostess I think it will become more like a funny afternoon with the girls.

Don't you mean when the regent couple grow older?? M&F are really not that old yet.

I'm sure the hunting itself will continue but a very big event like this, with foreign guests staying for the whole weekend. Not sure about that.

The poor women don't have to be dragged to museums all the time. The hostess could actually try to come up with something that interests as many as possible, not just what she wants to do herself....

The Regent Couple yes.

Indeed, I think the thing about having a hunting weekend, that's more Joachim and our Marie's area. - They are both a bit on the conservative side.

On the conservative side until he goes off completely with his pink pants lol

I wonder why Frederik didn't attend, if Mary went to the dinner? Maybe his hunting attire was deemed too tame in comparison to Henrik's and Joachim's .

Yes, it´s more Prince Joachim and Princess Marie´s area, but this a "Kongejagt" (King Hunt), so I think that this hunt will be taken over by CP Frederik and CPss Mary :)

Not necessarily. Joachim also hosts royal hunts and those who take part now are mainly the friends of the Regent Couple rather than the younger generations.
So I think there is a good chance this will become more low key.

Earlier this year the astronaut Andreas Mogensen was the first Dane in space and he was indeed presented with a rare medal by QMII upon returning.

Tuesday he told about his experience and his work aboard the International Space Station at the Royal Geographical Society. Where QMII were among those who listened. - Among the other present was also the astronauts very likable mother who has a wry sense of humor.

Today the Regent Couple and Countess Alexandra attended the funeral of QMII's childhood and very close friend, reverend Peter Parkov.

Thanks, Polyesco. I wondered why they wouldn't be there.

BB has a nice article about Peter Parkov this week. Suffice to say he was a very near and dear friend of QMII in particular. With a keen sense of humor.

It wasn´t a funeral as such, since Peter Parkov is already burned and buried, so to say. It was a memorial service, which Peter Parkov had planned to the smallest detail :)

Well it was nice to see that he took his dogs with him, gotta love a man that loves his dogs I say. Hat, is it cold in Denmark now? Or warm like the rest of the planet. He can lend me that hat anytime as I love hats!

No, it's been almost tropical for a week now. Some 10-12 degrees C (10-13 F) at noon.
Not that I complain.
