That's cute - she's so expressive. I wonder who she sees? :-)

I repeat, I didn´t mean to start a discussion. I´m only stating my opinion of how exaggerated all these celebrations are (for those who wanted to know what on earth I´m doing here). It´s nothing against the Danish, If the one-week celebration took place somewhere else, it would be as scandalous for me.

Btw, read some surveys, because the support towards monarchy is decreasing everywhere, and such extravagance does not help much.

Apart from that, if people are glad to pay more and more cost for the Crown, I´ll be watching the circus and commenting. Is it that terrible?
Monarchies are hardly as wasteful as they used to be, and the ones that still do exist bring much attention and money into countries that would otherwise receive little interest on the international stage.

I grew up in a staunchly democratic household (my mother is Swiss, and they eliminated their Zahringen dukes a LONG time ago), so I am well accustomed to defending my monarchism. I have long lived abroad in both monarchies and (mostly) democracies, and have seen that a monarch first and foremost serves to unify a country and is (ideally) above politics.

Perhaps the way to frame this was that the use of such money in hard times is inappropriate, rather than saying that these people are disgusting and what have you. But the idealism that birthright can be completely eliminated is ridiculous, because even in the most democratic of countries, those born to priviledge often keep it, and the same is true of the lower classes.

And after this celebration...

...that golden boat at the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria must have made your blood boil.

Does anyone have the link to the birthday video at the Fredensborg dinner, where after Frederik makes his speech to his mother, Mary runs up to him and gives him a congratulatory kiss and he pulls a face...I would like to watch that series of events

There are a couple of clips of the birthday on you tube - including the one you are referring to.
