Thanks, Iceflower.

Now, I hope you will enjoy this video: Prins Henrik og dronning Margrethe på kærlighedstur i trailer | billedbladet.dk
You know it's common for royals to ride through a town in a carriage or limousine, but what to do when there are no horses and no limo?

The flowers are Siberian poppies and they have painstakingly been brought, planted and nurtured there.

TV2 news at 19.00 showed a brief interview with the Regent Couple and at some point QMII was not amused!

That happened when the TV2 journalist asked what the Regent Couple thought about the press speculations in regards to PH not attending various events previously this year.

QMII ended that topic by saying that this had very little to do with the Greenland tour. "And that's that".

Some seriously beautiful pictures from Royalista of the Regent Couple in Greenland: VIDEO: Queen Margrethe on a moving tour of abandoned village | Royalista

Enjoy in particular grandpapa Henrik with a local child. He seems to have a good rapport with children.

And the beautiful photo of Dannebrog sailing away. - A photographers dream.

A little trivia based on the Regent Couple's visit to Greenland.

Visiting Greenland means walking on often slippery rocks or climbing slippery wooden stairs and one day both QMII and PH tripped, fell but fortunately didn't hurt themselves.
They are after all 75 and 81 years old now and climbing aboard rubber dinghies in order to get back to Dannebrog is becoming a problem. Because often the helicopter aboard the escort ship can't fly due to fog.
Apart from that there is another problem: "I can't walk slowly and the Prince Consort can't walk fast, so we are actually not a good match these days".

So while QMII is striding away, PH trails behind often with the supporting arm from an adjutant.
The Regent Couple were often seen sitting on chairs that had been brought out for them or leaning on pallets.

About his fall PH said: "No, no, I didn't hurt myself. I'm fine".
And here the new Master of Ceremonies, Kim Christensen, interjected: "It's all part of the daily fall-and-roll drill".
(You may recall that the former Master of Ceremonies, Søren Haslund Christensen, also had a cheeky sense of humor.

That PH has a way with children is no secret as you can see here: https://app.box.com/s/arr9ibjftrczp72yvuv5t14yaq1rvymm
https://app.box.com/s/26e7gnntes5vpn8ihypzyscyysmnc4qp

I think the time for such big visits to Greenland is quietly running out for the Regent Couple. A fact they will no doubt deplore because I believe they genuinely enjoy these pretty informal and heartwarm visits to Greenland.

I wondered how they would manage such a long trip at their age and condition. Having mobility issues of my own, I can relate. When you can't walk 'normally' you tire more easily. They deserve a nice long rest when they get home!

Pictures of the gala dinner hosted by Naalakkersuisut, the Greenlandic government, on 21 July:
Galleri: Naalakkersuisuts middag for regentparret | Sermitsiaq.AG

QMII held a beautiful speech in which she said (among other things): "Greenland is truly "Nuna Asiilasooq" – "an expansive country." As always, my husband and I have rejoiced over the meeting with the beautiful country and its warm-hearted, hospitable people." (...) "Following many long and eventful visits to Greenland with the Prince Consort and our sons, my red kamiks are now so well-worn that I think I can feel the Greenlandic bedrock through them. As you know, the love for Greenland lives as passionately in the Crown Prince and Crown Princess as in the Prince Consort and I. And last summer, we had the joy of seeing little feet in brand new kamiks when the Crown Prince couple brought their children along to Greenland for the first time. That was a very special joy for the Prince Consort and I, that our grandchildren from an early age are given the opportunity to get a close relationship to Greenland – a relationship that will follow them through their upbringing."

Here's the entire speech:
Hendes Majestæt Dronningens tale ved Naalakkersuisuts gallamiddag i Nuuk 21. juli 2015 - Kongehuset

There has also been a lot of concern from the Greenlandic people that, due to her age, this might be QMII's last visit to Greenland, but in her speech she reassured them that, "we both look forward to our next visit..." and IIRC, when asked about whether this will be their last visit at the press conference some days ago, she said that she definitely thinks not and that she feels perfectly good.

Pictures from the final day in Greenland yesterday:
Se billeder: Rørende afsked med regentparret | Sermitsiaq.AG

Whereas the engagements on 21 July were more official (visits to the Naalakkersuisut and the Inatsisartut, the government and the parliament), their engagements on the 22nd were more in style with the engagements we've seen previously on the visit – and QMII was dressed in her beautiful Kalaallisuut with Henrik following along in his white anorak. They visited a sewing room, the Court of Greenland, lunched in the Bank of Greenland, QMII visited a nursing home while Henrik visited a Red Cross shop, then they inaugurated a new road (christened it "Aqqusineq Dronning Margrethe II"), visited an exhibition of modern Greenlandic fabric and design, and finished off the day with kaffemik in Nuuk's town hall. At their final kaffemik, the mayor of Nuuk held a very lovely speech in which she said: "The feeling that we're connected remains – also when you travel home tomorrow, even though you're 4,000 kilometres away. I want to end this speech with a quote from The Little Prince where the little prince said to the fox: 'It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye' – so even though tomorrow, you're away from us in eyesight, we've got you in our hearts. A deeply deep-felt gratitude from us to you."

Glad they are okay from their falls.
These trips only get harder with age but it looks like they really enjoy this trip. Hopefully more are yet to come.

And lovely speech by the Queen. She, like the rest of us, enjoyed the CP family in Greenland

It is such a shame this trip ha come to a end, but what a fantastic visit this has been, with amazing, unforgettable photos.

I have a question to ask our Danish friends - I notice that some of the men wear a kind of hooded top/jumper whilst in Greenland - Prince Henrik (and CP Frederik last year) wore a white one and Kim Kielsen wore a fantastic blue one at the gala dinner. What is the name of the garment and can anyone tell more about it?

That is an anorak and that is the national costume for men in Greenland. Usually white but also blue. Why I don't know.
Anoraks became popular back in the 50's and 60's. I even had one when I was a small child. But then they were replaced by coats akin to Canadian Goose.
But the anorak was for whatever reason adopted as a part of the national costume. - It's not as elaborate as the female costume, but then life ain't fair, right?

He has? I don't know.

Poor circulation? PH has never been fond of cold weather anyway. I guess he simple has cold fingers.

From visiting museums to inaugurating sections of road, the Danish royals' are continuing to enjoy their annual summer cruise.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Consort Henrik are on the second leg or their trip - a two-week official visit to Greenland on board the Royal Yacht Dannebrog.

And today, the Queen looked dazzling as she stepped ashore in the capital, Nuuk, wearing Greenland's colourful traditional costume.

On DR1 tonight at 21.00 - that is in 90 minutes from now - there will be a half an hour summary of the Regent Couple's visit to Greenland.

You should be able to watch it live here: https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr1

You may not understand what is being said, but you can enjoy the scenery.
