Thanks for sharing your pictures, norwegianne. (Good to see you around again too!)
By crowd, do you mean far more than normal for other years, or just in general???
Your pics make Isabella look even smaller and cuter than other ones!

Thank you all for the lovely pictures and videos.
All the children looked like they enjoy being on the balcont especially Isabella who didnt want to go inside. Christian climbing the balcony was cute but dangeroues. Its a pitty that Frederik nore Mary picked Christian up for a minute. Not too sure about Mary's outfit, she kind off belnded in with the stone on the palace. Marie looked wonderful.

Another gallery from Billed Bladet, focusing on Princess Marie this time instead of the "stars of the show" Christian and Isabella:

Summary of note in Billed Bladet #09, 2011.
I Aarhus på sin fødselsdag - In Aarhus on her birthday.
Written by Ken Richter.

QMII will celebrate her 71st birthday at Marselisborg in Aarhus this year.

The last time she cebrated her birthday in Jutland was for five years ago, where a very young Christian took almost all the attention.

But will M&F show up? That's far from certain, not with four small children.

The PR-chief, Lene Balleby says: "I don't think either that the entire family will gather this year".

- The advantages of the "balcony scene" at Marselisborg is that it makes it easier for the photographers to get some good close-ups.
Aarhus is located either about 4 hours by car or 3 hours by car and ferry from Copenhagen. That's fairly long with four children!
And 3 hours from Schackenborg by car, depending on the traffic and pit stops.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #16, 2011.
Margrethe blev fejret med sang - Margrethe was celebrated with singing.
Written by Ken Richter.

If I remember correctly, the Regent Couple arrived in Aarhus late Friday evening in time for celebrating QMII's birthday Saturday.
It was a quiet birthday, with them was only Peter Parkov, the very close friend of the Regent Couple. He was incidentally also in the church at the christening.
Despite the day being chilly and windy and despite there being no grandchildren around, 5.000 locals had nevertheless showed up. And as always they could get pretty close to the terrace outside Marselisborg, where the Regent Couple stood.
QMII to was cheered and both "Happy Birthday" and the childrens birthday song were heard.
A few Australian flags were observed as well. Aarhus has a large university and with Australians all over the planet, it's no wonder some of them have found their way to Aarhus as well.

It's five years since QMII last celebrated her birthday at Marselisborg. The Regent Couple will stay there during Easter. QMII is a frequent attendee at services at Aarhus Catherdral. (*)

As usual the Royal Lifeguard and regimental band had turned out in gala uniforms, delighting the locals. Because conscript guardsmen from predominantly Aarhus or eastern Jutland are especially selected to stand guard at Marselisborg

(*) The Cathedral goes back to right after the Reformation in the 1530's. Another church or rather cathedral, Vor Frue Kirke = The Church of Our Lady, goes back to the late Viking Age, but that church was of course Chatolic, and I guess they wanted a new beginning.
