Thanks, Iceflower.

Great! At Marselisborg. That means the family will remain on the terrace, rather than going in and out of the balcony at Amalienborg.
And we may hope Josephine and Athena will entertain us again this year.

Let's hope the weather is fine on the day.

It seems only the Crown Princely Family is present.

Correct. Only the CP family was present.

I haven't seen any explanation yet as to why J&M were not there.

I like that the scene changes from time to time.
The balcony scene in Copenhagen is much larger and more spectacular, while the scene in Aarhus is more intimate and closer to people and it aloows more interaction between the various members of the DRF - especially children and dogs.

ADDED:

A very nice gallery from Jyllands Posten:
https://jyllands-posten.dk/indland/E...-og-danskerne/

Notice that the children went out to greet the crowd.

And a gallery from Aarhus Stiftstidende:

I liked how the kids came down from the balcony to say a quick hello to the public and grab some flowers for the Queen.

Thanks for all the sharing. So many lovely pictures and moments. It's much more relaxed at Marselisborg.

This picture. The Queen in front and behind her the heir to the throne with his wife in his hand and their four children beside them. That's a nice picture.

"Crown Princess Mary saw one of the attendants who had taken a bouquet of flowers to the queen. She discreetly made the queen aware of it. It did not take the grandchildren much more than a few seconds before they had jumped into the park to pick up the bouquet - to the great surprise of the security people. The queen received the bouquet with a flag with great enthusiasm."

Lovely to see the photos. The children have all shot up since we last saw them. I also thought Vincent looked a lot like Mary here. This part of the family seems to be very warm and close - I love this photo of Frederik with his arm around Josephine.
It was rather disappointing not to see Joachim and his family there. I wonder why they were all absent.

Prince Christian used to look the image of his father; now, he's looking more like his mom. Also, will Queen Margrethe abdicate when she's 80 years old? Anyway, the family looks very happy and that's good.

Joachim's entire family was absent. They better have some legitimate reasons (other than they are holidaying somewhere else).

(Joachim & Marie & Co. are moving to France in the summer. The course starts in September. It's only April now so that's not good enough for me. And I have no idea what Nikolai & Felix are doing.)

Better or legitimate to whom? There's no law saying that you have to spend your mum's birthday at her house you know.

Maybe they're on a pre-Easter Holiday?

There are many things expected in this world that's not written in LAW. And they are not just ANYBODY, they are not US; they are a part of the DRF. Everything they do, intentionally or unintentionally, will attract attention.

But that's just my opinion, you don't have to agree with me, as I don't agree with you.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #17, 2019.
Written by Trine Larsen.

Who were present when the DRF went out on the terrace at Marselisborg on her birthday recently.

The weather was cold but otherwise clear at noon on that day. The locals had gathered in the garden behind Marselisborg where the terrace is located. The Music Corps played and there, the DRF came out and waved the best they could. Moving around freely, as there is considerably more room to do that, than on the balconies at Amalienborg.
Not present were Joachim and our Marie and their children. They had started their Easter holiday abroad somewhere (presumably France, why should Marie always celebrate Easter in DK?) a few days earlier.

At some point Mary noticed someone in the crowd holding a bouquet of flowers they seemed eager to hand over. Mary then, according to our reporter, suggested to QMII that the children should pick up the bouquet. Mary quickly persuaded her four children to fetch the bouquet, even though Josephine initially appealed to mother to go with them.
With Bella in front and Josephine staying close to Christian the children completed the task, and somehow Christian ended up handing over the bouquet to QMII.

While waving their arms off there was time for some loving interaction between Mary and Vincent. Frederik and Mary. Mary and Bella and a small fight between Christian and Vincent.
Apparently Christian wanted to pad his kid brother on the cheek, but accidentally slapped him instead. Vincent was not pleased! But that was soon forgotten.

But see for yourselves here:

There is also a large, as in very large, interview with Benedikte, that I will summarize tomorrow.

mange tak! I will await with interest as Benedikte is for me an unknown member of the DRF!

Thank you Muhler for the summary (I'd be fascinated to see the interview with Benedikte!). The anecdote about Christian and Vincent made me smile, as it shows that the royals are regular folks and have the same family disputes and dynamics as us (bar the fact the perks of their lifestyles, of course!).

Do we know if there will be a big celebration for HM's 80th birthday next year, like we saw for the 70 and 75th birthdays?
