It's been great to follow along this weekend with all the various DRF goings on! I enjoyed the balcony appearances and seeing the family at the church service. I particularly liked Isabella briefly considering and then rejecting sitting with the boys in favour of better real estate up front. No second row for her, thanks! :)

I know some have said they'd like to see Mary wearing a borrowed tiara from Queen Margrethe at some point. I wonder if Mary is just perfectly content with what she has available to her at this point in time - I can't see QM refusing to let her, (or Marie), borrow whatever jewels she wanted to, and in time Mary will have access to all of it anyway.

If I remember correctly: Ex-Queen Frederica sold a tiara during her time in exile. Was it this one? Suppose it were, there's a possibily that it went on the market quite recently and was purchaed by MC.
Whatever, I just cannot imagine that it has been 'dormant' since the death of Queen Frederika in - when was it - 1981??

Congratulations to Queen Margrethe II, may she live long and stay healthy! She is one of my favourite royals, even perhaps my favourite royal. Denmark has a special place in my heart as well, thanks to my ancestry.

I love seeing all the gowns and tiaras yesterday and today. HM Queen Margrethe is always a grand sight and looking fantastic. I must say that for some reason I really do like Queen Silvia's choice of gown and jewels tonight, she looks fabulous! Well, all the ladies do in fact. The "surprise of the evening" aka "Biggest tiara" -prize definitely goes to CP Marie Chantal and that huuuuge tiara!! Didn't see that one coming...

My thoughts exactly, Viv.

It would be my guess that Marie Chantal has purchased back this tiara at auction.

That said, and if so (?), it's quite amazing that the tiara wasn't broken up and it's stones re-destributed for various settings during it's time away from the GRF.

Aaaaaaand I got see both Erik Normann Svendsen and Henning Toft Bro, the bishop from Aalborg. He and my father are old studybuddies

Og så har det da lige været en weekend for mig - Dronningens jubilæum hele weekenden og min fødselsdag søndag - min sjæl, hvad vil du mer?

Thanks to ALL for the fabulous posts, links and pictures. Lots of work ahead it seems to me for the many historians on this board. Indeed, MC did look like a cat that had just swallowed a mouse, so that I would not be surprised if your suspicions are correct!

You're right, it may very well be so. Just because a lot of us are 'magpies' here, we assume that the persons we discuss feel the same way



....Tillykke med fødselsdagen FasterB!

My resumee for the jubilee: It was celebrated worthy for Margrethe, her family and Denmark. Every picture I have seen was beautiful and Elizabeth, now its your time to show how the British are able to celebrate.

That's either a very large tiara on Marie-Chantal or she's got a small head; either way, that tiara made a stunning debut after all these years and I guess if I got to wear that, I'd sure be looking like a kitty cat that swallowed the canary as well!

Congratulations and many thanks to the posters on this thread who kept the coverage and pictures coming of this wonderful occasion. You all did a marvelous job, and I'll just have to chalk up these last two days as my "lost weekend" since I barely did anything else but sat glued to my computer soaking this all in! Congratulations to the Queen with best wishes for many more years on her throne.

Thanks for the informaiton and photos!
The celebrations were unequivocally successful. On a different note, I would like to say that it is sad that Crown Princely couples of Belgium and Netherlands did not attend.

Happy birthday, FasterB

More? How about our Marie giving birth tonight?
If that happens, we may all look like this by the end of the week:

Perhaps, you or someone else in the know, can help.

I believe there was a song at the service Sunday (was she an opera singer?) who sang a song from The Lord of the Rings. Is that correct? And what is the title of that song?
I just heard part of it on a clip somewhere.

Finally, a closer look at Marie Chantal, thanks to Marika86..

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/...Dx7di/x610.jpg

Hmm... Those earrings really don't go well with the tiara IMO.

Too bad Princess Marie couldn't be there but of course it is understandable. I can't wait for her to deliver the baby already! (I keep checking how she and CP Victoria are doing regularly...) I've been going through the pictures from last night and tonight for a couple of hours (was busy before) and I think I'll have to leave the rest for tomorrow... Love these big festivities! When's the next one?

There were a song from "Lord of the Rings", but that was saturday at the concert. She was a singer from either Iceland or Færøerne (sorry, can´t spell that in english).
Sunday at the service there was the choir MPIRI from Færøerne and the Greenlandic choir AAVAAT, who sang.
The soprano, Inger Dam-Jensen, sang the uppevoice in the "uropførelse" of the suite "Alle mine kilder", perhaps it was that suite you heard?
