I remember visiting Amalienburg , I saw the late King Frederick's desk with pictures of Queen Queen Ingrid and his 3 daughters , really a happy family .

Queen Margarethe , Queen Elisabeth and Queen Beatrix are real professionnals , reigning since years without any mistake.
I apologize my bad english but I am happy for you. This week we had in Belgium Crown-Prince Philippe 's 50th birthday and it was not even at the frontpage of my newspaper.
You're welcome Maria-Olivia
As Maura says in her post, the most remarkable thing about queen Margrethe is not so much the number of pro-monarchist, but the respect even the non-monachists have for her.

Such a shame that prince Phillippe's 50th had no media coverage. There are lots of people, outside Belgium as well, who would love to see and hear more of him and his lovely wife.

The banquet looks like lots of fun and the Queen seems to be enjoying herself. I hope she enjoyed the day

Seems the whole event was a great success. Everyone seemed happy and in a party mood. The ladies all looked lovely, I thought.

In response to someone's question, about how all the royals speak to each other since they all come from different countries -- I would assume they all speak English with one another, as it's a common language they all share. All of the royals in Europe are for the most part, pretty fluent in English. It would be easier than trying to learn each others' native tongues for the few events each year where they're all together.

Thank you. I didn't even think to zoom in on them, but once I did I could see their ribbons. I don't know the ettiquette of the theater - is this the normal placement for Ladies in Waiting? I would've thought maybe the Crown Prince couple would use the other box, and that maybe the LiW would sit near their respective....(?)

Well, I think is not necessarily, because this is not a 'work day', it is a celebration, they are guests as everybody else

Still, it seems like seating them in a box gives them preference over the other royals in the balcony. Or is the seating preference done in a counter-clockwise fashion according to rank, starting with the Queen in her box and ending with the Ladies in Waiting in the other box? I noticed that the Crown Prince & Princess were to the Queen's right at the start of the first row of balcony seating. I'd be curious to know what the etiquette is to seat so many royals at the theater.

And has the volcanic ash cloud impeded the departure of any of the royals? I know several royal families were detained in their arrival by the travel restrictions .

The photos were amazing. I loved MM white dress during the lunch reception. Mary's gowns were lovely. Marie's not so. All were somewhat a wrong choice for her (first - too huge on her, 2nd - bad quality and 3rd - looks like a nightgown). The jewels were overwhelming! The Queen looks truly happy celebrating her birthday. Too bad Belgium and Spain were not able to attend the celebration. The train may not be an option for them like the Dutch royals. Is Denmark accessible by train for the Spanish royals? I think it's too far if in case it is accessible unlike the case of the Dutch royals. I think Belgium is nearest to travel by train but they were celebrating Philippe's 50th birthday so I reckon they won't be attending the remaining festivities. I sure hope ALL royal families will represent the next biggest royal congregation on June 19th (Victoria's wedding). That would be quite a splendid event!

I also observed that she was born shortly after the invasion in 1940. My father served in the war from London at that time. He survived. Those days were very difficult for everyone, even the Royal Family in Copenhagen, I'm sure.
My very best wishes to Her Majesty on the 70th Anniversary of her birth.
Sincerely and with great admiration for the Danes and their spirit.

Hello - just wanted to thank you for your contribution to the celebrations. It was nice hearing about some of your memories from your stay in Copenhagen so many years ago and your meeting with the queen.

Architectural colleages? Where you studying at Charlottenborg - close to the royal theater?
