Nice, and the porch at Marselisborg Slot allows for more room for all of the family to be out at the same time

And we have a video: http://www.tv2østjylland.dk/artikel/...des-dronningen

I see Josephine as usual managed to take center stage.

Mademoiselle Athena is a bit shy, that's sweet to see.

Long video from Kongehuset's Facebook (17 minutes):
https://www.facebook.com/detdanskekongehus/?fref=ts

It was a fun birthday celebration.

Josephine is undoubtedly a star. She made sure to entertain the entire lawn while also entertain her cousin Athena - and they certainly have fun together these two little girls. When the music ended Josephine jumped up on the stair, waved her arms to the people and bowed - she is so fun and sweet a little girl

Vincent is the most beautiful boy and he smiled his gentle charming smile and waved in front with grand papa Henrik and Josephine - when he wasn't busy with run over and hugging his mother

Isabella has grown to such a big girl now, and she waved nicely and neatly as she laughed over her lively little siblings and cousin. As she hugged both her mother, father and grandmother over and over agian, a loving girl.

Christian as the oldest brother kept a good eye on his lively siblings and cousin.

A fine scene when Margrethe and Henrik, and Frederik in the middle, stood and looked.

A funny scene at the end: Everyone goes out on the balcony again... Mary discovers that Josephine, and Marie and Athena are missing ... Mary runs inside and tries to find them .. And then get them all with out on the balcony again. Isabella gave her mother a high-five and a hug when she had found them

Great to see Margrethe so happy, and that Henrik was by her side.

Adorable Vincent and Christian in matching clothes. And red wine pants like daddy.

Thank you.

I thoroughly enjoyed that.

Josephine is a little ham. And she has sure got a fellow collaborator in Athena! I'm sure it's very lively this year at Marselisborg, with those two around!
Athena is looking up to Josephine who no doubt enjoy being the older one for once.

Henrik and Vincent were more subdued but then there are no cows to yell at or cars to admire...

And Christian and Isabella as the two older, very responsible, almost, nearly, close to being, sort of adults themselves.

Usually the Music Corps play the more international Happy Birthday, but this year they surprised QMII by playing the Danish children's birthday song. Which means the smallest can sing along - and they did.

From a viewing point of view I prefer the balcony scene to take place at Marselisborg rather than at Amalienborg. Simply because it's more in eye-level with people and the family can move about. - Josephine and Athena's antics were a photographers wet dream come true!
But the atmosphere at Amalienborg is fantastic! It's more intimate and inclusive because people are surrounded by the four mansions.

ADDED: A few nice photos: https://bdk.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...-margrethe.jpg
https://bdk.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...-margrethe.jpg
And a great photo of our two entertainers: https://bdk.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/res...-margrethe.jpg
Another photo of the two: http://imbo2.tv2.dk/users/editorial/...f43758b7ac29bb

I notice that Josephine is wearing the bracelet the female members of the DRF receive when they are five or six years old. I couldn't make out whether Athena wore one.

Prinsesserne Josephine og Athena satte kulør på farmors fest | BILLED-BLADET

Another great photo of the two entertainers.
The article says the onlookers also enjoyed the show, which Josephine and Athena responded to - delighting the onlookers even more.

Another photo of the two, doing a "Klappe kage" = Clapping cake. Don't know the English equivalent. (It's not a high five, this is much older, and including a song known to all toddlers). http://billedeupload.dk/images/2ofZ6.jpg
Unless my lip-reading is off in one of the videos Josephine says: "Not so hard".

ADDED: A 40 pic gallery: http://www.jv.dk/indland/Dronningen-...rtikel/2497559
With selected photos in this folder, which is likely to be updated with additional photos, so check back: QMII's birthday at Marselisborg 2017

Josephine and Athena remind me a lot of the connection between Estelle and Leonore. So cute.

Here are some of my favorites pictures/moments from today

Hard to choose because there are so many.
I will leave out the otherwise wonderful pictures of cherry Josephine and Athena because we have already seen so many pictures - but it was glorious to watch them. Josephine is indeed a star, and she certainly has a little cousin who looks very much up to her


Mary being mother I watched the live-broadcasting and in the only 15 minutes all four children reached to run to mother and giving her a hug. Isabella and Vincent several times, that was lovely and so natural a mother-child thing to see:

F&M in the background:
It may be Isabella and Henrik who are in focus, but as I watched the live-video I noticed how F&M chatted like two new in love teenagers in the background. They cracked up laughing at something and Mary lean against Frederik's arm and they stood like this while they enjoyed themselves

And Daily Mail: Princess Mary is a doting mother on Easter Sunday* | Daily Mail Online

And an updated folder: QMII's birthday 2017
- With particular emphasis on my two little favorites and other family interaction.
As usual no credits to me.

And a 87 pic gallery from Aarhus Stiftstidende: http://stiften.dk/article_gallery/448364

A few comments.

Marselisborg Manor is placed inside Marselisborg Forest, so in order to get there you have to walk through a part of the forest. The city of Aarhus surrounds the forest, except to the east, where the trees go down to the sea. https://app.box.com/s/rp2n4so2ssw3q2mfop7kp459gf3n3jnl

I see Vincent has not inherited his dad's fondness for pockets... That surely must be the Australian/Scottish genes taking over. https://app.box.com/s/bfqw3iwyuce6mgz6hn5esle7pg60jqo6

And we must not forget the royal dogs. Here QMII's dachshund. But our Marie's furry little thing, Apple, was also there, she must be pretty old by now. https://app.box.com/s/st0eb1bm3qqfhbg49yzhezw9jgazovey

The guardsmen are just as much an attraction while the royal residence is located at Marselisborg or Gråsten. Because they are picked from conscripts from in this case mainly Jutland. So the family proudly show up when their little son (or daughter) is on guard duty - taking pics and embarrassing their prodigy.

ADDED: I hope you are able to watch this news video from TV2 Eastern Jutland: http://www.tv2østjylland.dk/nyheder/...oplay=1#player

What a great birthday for the Queen.
A joy to see Josephine and Athena interact together. Sweet Vincent with his cute smile, especially with grandpa Henrik and mother Mary.

I have not seen all the videos but it looks like the two little ones were playing "patty cake" with their hands.
Lovely Isabella with her father Frederik

One thing that stands out is that this is one very loving family that enjoy spending time with each other. From the jovial grandfather to the kids playing patty cake and just enjoying being with each other, its no wonder that upon reaching 77 years old, Queen "Daisy" has many, many reasons to smile and be happy.

No matter what has happened with complaints about titles or his separate jaunts to places exotic or his flamboyant attire, its very clear to see that Henrik and Margrethe are still a loving couple and revel in being surrounded by their family.

Makes me acclaim that there's nothing fishy in Denmark. Nothing at all.
