Queen's Birthday - 16 April

I'll be in Copenhagen and plan to go to Amalienborg to see the royal family on the balcony at noon. To our Danish friends who've been their before - how early do I need to be at the palace to get a good spot?? (and would it bee in poor taste to wave a Canadian flag and a Danish flag???)

It's probably a good idea to come at least an hour before.
Not sure where you should stand, because the police will cordon off a part of the square prior to the relieving guards parade arriving. So that the soldiers can move about.
Shortly before noon part of the cordon will be lifted, so that the well wishers can move closer to the palais.
So you'l have to stand in the right place and move fast, when the time comes.
And you bring the Canadian flag (Does it have a name?) and wave it until your arm goes numb. - QMII said in a recent interview that she does notice foreign flags in the crowd and that she finds that it adds to the festive mood. So

Thank you sooooo much!!! Very helpful! This will totally be one of the highlights of my trip, just being around the crowds, cheering and taking in the whole atmosphere will be fun - to get a good spot would be the cherry on top!!

The Canadian flag does have a name - the Maple Leaf! So I will proudly wave the Maple Leaf beside the Danish flag in front of the palace!! (does the Danish flag have a name?? - horray for learning!! LOL)

Does the Queen and the Prince Consort do a walkabout in front of the palace as well as appear on the balcony? Sorry for the questions! I just found out I will be in Copenhagen during her birthday celebrations, so kinda excited to be there and see what happens!!

It sure has. It's called Dannebrog and dates back to 1219.

The DRF will not do a walkabout. But they will appear on the balcony a few times. Encouraged by the crowd shouting: "Dronning, Dronning, kom nu frem ellers går vi aldrig hjem = Queen, Queen, come on out or we'll never go home".
And the children will be there. Including, we may hope, the little Piaf for the first time.

Wave the Maple Leaf as best as you can and make your fellow Canadians proud.
We may even spot you in the pics on that day, after all the Maple Leaf is not that common a sight at Amalienborg.

Thank you Iceflower and fairy tale. I loved these photographs. Queen Margrethe certainly seems to be enjoying her day. I do like her coat.

The whole family looks very happy and content, and the children are simply adorable.

Muhler,
Just wanted to thank you for your advice! I got to Amalienborg at 10:30 and it worked out perfectly! I couldn't have got closer - front and center!! Got some great pics of everyone, I even have one of Frederick looking at me!! The gaurds paraded around and they stoped right in front of where I was too!! The crowds were great, and the people I talked to were so friendly! They asked where I was from and the gentleman who was with his granddaughter told me which palace was Frederick and Mary's, and pointed out which direction to move when the time came!

Oh and bonus!! After lunch I went to Rosenborg and the Queen and Prince Henrik were there too!! Got some close pictures there too!!

That's great.
I'm glad you had the best seat in the house.
I trust you waved the Maple Leaf as best as you could.

Please tell us more about your impressions.
First hand accounts from members are always better than reading about it in magazines.
The Marble Room at Rosenborg was inaugurated today. The renovation was paid for by the late Mærsk McKinney. I presume you were standing outside?
