Thanks, Iceflower

A BB video of QMII to a kind of mask-ball. VIDEO: Dronning Margrethe til maskebal | BILLED-BLADET
Or is it a masque-ball?

She's become a lot better with children, it clearly helps having grandchildren.

I keep forgetting to thank you Iceflower for posting the pictures, sorry. They have really cheered up my lunch breaks these last few days (and public librarians over here in the UK need all the cheering up we can get these days)

Thanks, Iceflower

This looks like an archetypical visit to a medium sized municipality.
Without having read a line so far I bet I can describe more or less exactly what went on.
Complete with all the local trimmings.

I share the Queen's delight: what a fabulous project! Bravo to teachers and students for pulling this off

Looks like quite the event. The queen sure seemed to enjoy herself I think being a grandparent seems to naturally bring out a new side to people.

A delightful BB video of QMII in fine spirit: VIDEO: Dronning Margrethe gav 11-årige Marcus en opskrift | BILLED-BLADET

Here a boy, aged eleven, is giving us (and QMII) a lecture in the sea-environment including clams. His choice of words makes him sound much older than his actual age.
And when QMII, who was charmed by the boy, praised him. He confessed that he had practiced a lot. - Yes, and that could be heard!
She also interrupts at one point to ask him whether he has tasted clams. He hadn't so she gave him a quick recipe.

- I think QMII is enjoying what is basically a semi-retirement. She goes for tours of the realm. A kind of sightseeing where what is happening is something she has tried countless times before, so she can just relax.
While the more serious and heavy jobs have now been taken over completely by M&F as we have witnesses recently.

If that is semi-retirement, that's what we all should aim for eh? One thing I notice with Margrethe is that there is nothing ever stiff and formal about her when she goes out among the people. Instead of being touted as HM, The Queen, it seems like she's more like everyone's favorite granny come to visit and sit for a spell

The Danes have it quite right. M&F to do some of the serious and heavy stuff while The Queen goes out and enjoys her people. I love it!

That's very interesting, Osipi, because to me, Queen M is among the top two of the most stiff and formal member of the DRF. She has changed for the better, during the time I have followed the DRF, but still...
