I must admit I'm very relieved to see PH on the balcony today.

The Gallup survey is interesting.

Apart from PH, the figures are pretty good, - for all of them.
As for J&M there figures are pretty consistent.
That M&F are so high up is hardly news. And that says a lot in itself.

I think it does reflect a general opinion that people believe M&F are ready to take over - in full.
That however is very much contributed to QMII, because she allows M&F to shine.
Success breeds success.

ADDED:

BB writes that PH got an extra cheer when he appeared. http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige...g-paa-balkonen
I guess we were quite a few who were concerned he wouldn't be there.

It's good to see that Mademoiselle Athena has become more forward. But it helps to have a long-haired big brother right behind you...

ADDED Once more:

BT express the concern more directly in this gallery: Prince Henrik showed up to celebrate Margrethe: http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billedern...ejre-margrethe

Is it? If they didn't do a good job, they wouldn't shine even if she allowed them to do so...

I think a photographer is happy for that picture.
Great photos of two very sweet sisters, they have such happy smiling faces.

Thanks to all who posted those lovely pictures. It was wise of PH to appear with his wife, and they're color-coordinated, too! The picture of QM with all her grandchildren is especially nice. Felix's face is becoming more mature, he's losing his little-boy look. Josephine is wearing a bracelet; I wonder if it's the traditional fifth birthday bracelet that girls in the DRF receive. A genetically-blessed family, to be sure

You have to learn to swim, before you become a proficient swimmer.

If they were suddenly thrown into the job, they are likely to make lots of mistakes. They don't because QMII took them under her wings and allowed them to learn and develop.

Happy birthday to Daisy

I love the pictures. Especially the one with her and all of her grandchildren. Wow Christian is almost as tall as Felix is. Happy to see Henrik came and was with his wife. They all looked happy and good.

I especially like the photos of Isabelle and Josephine

We have a very enthusiastic waver in Josephine.
Vincent less so, there are no cows to yell at... Not until tomorrow, when it's ECO-day and the cows are on grass. With a little bit of luck the DRF children will be out there somewhere.

Isabella is developing into a little lady and Athena obviously think this waving thing is fun.

A good day and no rain it seemed.

Happy Birthday to Her Majesty. What a lot of lovely happy family photos. I especially love the ones of QMII with all her (enthusiastically waving) Grandchildren.

QMII and Prince Henrik ended the day at the Royal Theatre, where they watched the ballet "Romeo and Juliet". Standing salute for QMII when she entered her box and the orchestra played "Kong Christian".

All the pictures are wonderful . what a great birthday for the Queen. She looked quite proud and happy of her family.

The picture of her with her 8 grandchildren is precious
Christian is almost as tall as Felix , and they are 3 years apart. Nikolai is now taller than the Queen
Beautiful smiles between Josephine and Isabella.
and this year Vincent has left the climbing to his cousin Athena.

Frederik and Mary looked great, love this picture a natural gesture for them to hold hands, even while concentrating on the crowd below

The Gallup survey has been made at the 12th April 2016.
thank you for bringing the survey Roskilde . No surprises here. Well, Joachim and Henrik have changed places.
But this one and the one recently where over 90% viewed Frederik ready to be a good king, show the great work Frederik and Mary are doing

I agree Muhler, in much part it's Frederik and Mary's initiative and strong work, but it's also helps the great support they receive from the Queen.

Queen Margrethe looked wonderful on the balcony. She seemed really happy and if Henrik got applause I'm betting it was because he had the decency to show up and not cause his wife public hurt. She looked so majestic as she called the 9 cheers? and listened to the anthem

The family photos were wonderful and it was interesting to see that Henrik, Joachim, Felix and Christian all showed a little sartorial flare with a kerchief in their breast pockets whilst Frederik, and Nicolai went for the less flamboyant look.

The photos of Q Margrethe and her grandchildren werre lovely and it was very sweet the way Nicolai was hovering over his baby sister and making sure her climbing stayed safe.

I am so excited to see them!! I reached at about 10.30am and already there are some people waiting there. Initially we were told to stand within the black line next to King Frederik V statue. So I was very happy that I had the first row position, right next to a Grandma with her granddaughter (I heed your advice!) but then realized it did not matter once the security allowed people to go right up in front at the bottom of balcony - everyone was running for the best position so actually there is no need to be there early. Just need to run fast!! One good thing about arriving early was we saw the Queen arriving in her car - the security was nice to tell us about it. We also saw the staff brought out the 2 Dachshunds for a quick walk. Love that the Queen appeared 4 times in the balcony. There is a Australia tourist next to me and when the Queen and her children appeared together on the same balcony, the tourist shouted "Mary, from Australia" and Mary immediately looked over and waved at us (I got it on video!!). And during the final appearance, the Dachshunds and Princess Marie's Abelle were also on the balcony with them. Also finally the Queen and M&F went in first but J&M stayed on at the balcony for few minutes more. Was wondering how come there's no one cue them to go in but I am not complaining - Marie looks so much better in person than on photo.
