I doubt the Queen who dislikes email, mobile phones and 'modern technology' would be interested in using a teleprompter. Not when there is plenty of paper around for her to use

I just rewatched the 'Kongehuset Indefra' documentary last week, and there was a piece at the end about the Queen's New Year's speeches. The filmcrew sets up two cameras each year, one as a back-up in case the main camera fails during the live broadcast - they can easily cut directly to the second recording.

The TV-people has suggested it to her, but she rejected. She likes the fact that she reads out form the paper and look directly into the living rooms in Denmark, just if she was sitting in front of us IRL.

This year's speech was phenomenal. A loving reprimand from QMII to us Danes. "It is true that Denmark is a small country, but we must take care not to become a small-minded country". And she's right in every way. I really like how she mentioned the Danish Jews during WW2 and how Danes stood together back then - "... differences must not be allowed to prevent us from helping our neighbours and fellow countrymen – from person to person". A truly grand speech - QMII is such a wonderful badass.

The little mistakes she made were lovely as well. I'd rather have a Queen who makes a few mistakes here and there in a live broadcast, than have it pre-recorded. Seems much more genuine this way - I think a lot of us mortal people would choke up in the words too - and I love how she could just laugh and smile about it.

And finally, last year I was desperately looking for the New Years speech in English and it was nowhere to be found, so I'm stoked to find that they have put it out on kongehuset.dk this year.

Agree, she nailed it this year.

The IMO most common ailiment in DK right now is "at have ondt i røven = your arse hurts" (Pardon my bluntness, but that's the expression), meaning that someone is petty.
- Surely if I can't have what someone else is having, then no one should have it, - even I'm so fortunate I don't need it.
That unfortunately common attitude, spurred on by certain contemptously politicians (a certain former athlete springs to mind...) is not something I admire!
So QMII's swipe against pettyness was met with glee by me.

As usual all experts and a number of people who are not... have been asked to analyze QMII's speech. The tendency is clearly that this was one of her better speeches and she has been praised.
One rhetoric pointed out that QMII by mentioning people who are lonely is a nod to Mary's work, thus positioning her even more for her future role as queen. The royal expert Lars Hovbakke Sørensen counted that with a "cool it now", QMII has always mentioned social and humanitarian work without more having to be derived from that.

I agree, a really good New Year's speech from Margrethe (although I didn't get to hear it all with a baby on my arm who doesn't think the speech was particularly interesting ) And as Archduchess Zelia says, I really like the sentence "It is true that Denmark is a small country, but we must take care not to become a small-minded country".
We are fortunate to live in a country like Denmark, and yet we are probably one of the nations who complain us the most.

Her Majesty is without doubt a Great Lady and a Grand Queen who is still able to be a little down to earth as well. I have the greatest respect for her and always look forward to this time of year to see her at her best. You Danes are very lucky to have her and long may she reign.
