Agree.

But even if the the relationship between the DRF and Alexandra was strained, she would still have been invited.

Countess Alexandra is the mother of two Princes in line for the throne, she is also holder of the Order of the Elephant. As such she belongs to first order of ranks and she will automatically recieve an invitation. - In the same way as members of the Parliament recieve an invitation.

What I also liked was that the entire staff at the DRF court, (about 160 or so) also got an invitation. From the youngest cleaner to the Chief of Court.

But why was she then not present at any of the celebrations for HM's 70th birthday in April 2010?
The only other Family celebration she has attended since her remarriage was an Event for Prince Henrik's 75th birthday ant here she was the patron of one of the Choirs who performed if i'm correct.

Because a birthday isn't a jubilee?

Wow, that´s a quite crowdy balcony!
It´s amazing how just some years ago they were half the ones they´re today (and still we´ll have more family members for the Queen´s birthday).
The family has grown quickly

The balcony scene is over. Unfortunately neither DR1 nor TV2 focused much on the grandchildren.
Bette Henrik, wearing the commemoration medal for the jubilee, wasn't that keen on waving to the overwhelming crowd.

There was a clash of songs at some point. After the nine cheers for Denmark, the royal anthem was played, after which a large group of those on the square started to sing the national anthem, while the music corps started to play a march. - Not that it stopped the singers, they continued to the end.

Now the guests are being driven to the Frederik VIII's Palais, alas. There 37 guests will have lunch. They consists of the DRF, GRF, SRF & NRF and also the heads of state of Iceland and Finland and a cousin of Prince Henrik.

It appears our Marie will not attend the lunch, she is however expected to attend the service later in the afternoon. - She may be very close to popping.
The prospect of Marie giving birth today or within the next couple of days is somewhat of a nightmare for Annemette Krakau, the editor of Billed Bladet, because then she's got a problem about the frontpage on Thursday.

Vincent and Isabella also wore the commemoration medal.

Very annoying. Why is it more important to get close ups of random strangers than showing the royal family and guests?

And not just any state council for QMII, but no. 500! A few additional state council meetings have apparently been added lately, so the queen reached this number for her ruby jubilee.

I wonder if they will start using all three balconies from now on... Q Margrethe and P Henrik in the middle - CP Frederik and family on one - P Joachim and family on the other.

It is already rather crowded now. There is yet another baby on the way. And it will only get more crowded as the children gets older.

It seems like a good idea. Because at QMII's birthday in April they are going to do two or three MIchael Jacksons just to have room for all on the balcony.

Congratulations on your first post, Falkon

I can add that M&F hosted a dinner Friday for the cousins. - That was probably lively!

I see Queen Silvia is wearing UFO-camouflage on her head: http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Q...PW9vPmy9pl.jpg

What a novel and refreshing idea.

I definitely think they will need to consider using the three balconies from now on! When the new baby arrives (judging by the look of Marie won't be long) and the Queen and Prince Henrik it's going to be a seriously tight squeeze! They won't be able to lift Henrik, Josephine and Vincent forever!

Am I wrong?
