:( A bit of sadness for me looking at these pictures. Because of the divorce, Her Highness Princess Alexandra would never appear on the royal balcony again! How she must have felt seeing her sons and ex-husband go out on to the balcony without her, the first time in 9 or 10 years she hasn't appeared on the balcony.

It isn’t sad anymore. Neither for us nor for Alexandra( or Joachim). The divorce announcement was made 6 months ago and the decision(internally) for Alexandra and Joachim to divorce was probably made even further back. So they have probably gotten used to the situation by now. BTW Alexandra was not balcony, but she did take part in the family’s birthday lunch afterwards. So she is not totally excluded from the family:)

Thanks for the pictures everybody!

While everyone looked happy on the balcony, I feel that it is a bit sad to see fewer people on the balcony this year. Last year there were Henrik, Frederik and Mary, Joachim and Alexandra and their sons and this year no Frederik and Mary (who are in Thailand) and no Alexandra. Too bad Frederik and Mary couldn't have post-poned their trip to Thailand by a day or two so that they could've shared the Queen's special day with her.

Too sad, the balcony was not crowded at her 65th birthday!

But nevertheless, I know that the Queen together with the royal family incuding Princess Alex did enjoy the lunch afterwards.

ROYAL BIRTHDAY FUN FOR HENRI AND MARGRETHE

18 APRIL 2005

Royal revelry reigned over the weekend, with two of Europe's favourite sovereigns celebrating landmark birthdays.

Denmark's much-loved Queen Margrethe, who has just turned 65, was cheered by a huge crowd of well-wishers when she appeared on the balcony of Amalienborg Palace on Saturday. And Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg was also enjoying the adulation of his subjects as he rang in his 50th birthday with a party in the Grand Ducal Palace.

Accompanied by his wife Maria Teresa, the monarch made a typically impressive entrance by roaring into the palace on a powerful motorcycle. The Duchess had to hold on tight to her husband while they were on the move, but she obviously isn't averse to wrapping her arms around him because they also were photographed in a tender embrace later in the day.

Queen Margrethe, meanwhile, was in similarly affecctionate form. The happiness was written all over her face when she stepped onto the balcony with husband Prince Henrik, son Joachim and grandsons Felix and Nikolai.

The ever-popular Prince Frederik and Princess Mary couldn't make it along, as they are currently on a state visit to Japan, but the monarch was keen to express her fondness for her daughter-in-law. "It must be strenuous to come to a new country and take on her position," she said of the pretty Australian. "She's doing a great job and I'm a proud mother-in-law."

Thank you so much Larzen for that report.

Is that from Marselisborg ??

12,000 people, wow that's some 8% of the population in Århus if they are around 150,000.

Christian has certainly grow up to be a big gorgeous baby boy... and his outfit... well.. so so cute!!
What about Nikolai, Felix, and Joachim? Anything mentioned where they were? I was hoping this would be the occassion for us to see the whole family, including the 3 young boys..

This must be Christian's first balcony appearance - the first of many!

He looks like he was getting tired of charming the people after awhile. I hope the next time they give him a hat that's not so silly and that fits him better.

How lovely to see them on the balcony at Marselisborg! This time little Christian stole the attention from the dachshunds who usually otherwise get some attention whenever they're around

This picture is just wonderful - three generations of monarchs present and future - Margrethe, Fredrik and Christian.

Thank you everyone for the many wonderful pictures! :)

In some of the pictures I can definitely see a resemblance to Mary in Christian. He is looking quite adorable in his little jacket with the hat and the little ears!

Where were Joachim and his sons this year?

Baby Christian is so adorable!!! I think it's so cute the way his hood kept slipping over his eye. It's only too bad that the rest of the family couldn't be there. I would have loved to see Joachim and his boys there also.
Mary looks beautiful today!
