When the Queen last night held his 46th New Year's speech, Danes from all over the country and other countries sent their images to the royal house.

Thanks for answering!

IMO (and this is not meant as criticism of danish historians/commentators or journalists) the quality of some of the people who are commentating on the DRF is very poor and gossip-like.

Lars Hovbakke Sørensen: I have taken him in several errors (also when it comes to the DRF). And as I wrote in the ''King Harald's New Years Speeches'' thread, he was wrong about some facts (regarding norwegian New Year's speeches) in the Jyllands-Posten article you posted in post 74.

Trine Villemann: I don't even have words to describe her behavior and ignorance (she even make the worst british commentators look good).

Sebastian Olden-Jørgensen: He always think QMII is going to abdicate. And he wasn't too impressed by her speech either (probably because she didn't abdicate).

And some of the things he has said about Frederik is just ridiculous. Just take this comeent: ''He (Frederik) has married a woman who has more in her little-finger that he has in his entire body''. (You wrote about it in one of your posts.)

I can only agree with you.

Which is probably the reason why specialist royal reporters from BB or Thomas Larsen from Berlingske (who is also a political analyst BTW) are often called in to comment for the TV networks.
But the papers are reluctant to request comments from competitors so they rely on "experts". Experts who may know a lot about the formal roles and history of the monarchy as a whole, but not so much about the persons themselves.
I'll claim that quite a few here on TRF who follow the DRF threads regularly (most of course being foreigners) would be able to come up with more qualified comments on the DRF and the current members than the persons you listed.

Agrees! I for one like commentators or experts (who mainly consist of writers and historians) to be accurate and non gossip-like. The exception is TV2's foreign correspondent Ulla Terkelsen. She is not what I will describe as accurate and non gossip-like (especially not when it comes to her commentary on the royals), but for a strange reason, I enjoy listening to her.

BTW: In Norway, most of the royal commentators/experts who is used by the TV networks and papers are mainly former/current political editors (with the exception of NRK's royal correspondent Kristi Marie Skrede and TV2's royal expert Kjell Arne Totland and 4 very serious/accurate historians).

Yes, I like her too. You can usually expect her to say something intelligent and she has a way of explaining things so that it makes sense.
She is also very pro-monarchy, but without being sentimental or keeping out the negative angles.

I see that DR1 for their coverage tonight brought in former Master of Ceremonies Christian Eugen Olsen and a fashion designer (at least one of his creations were there tonight). So they are experts in a much more hands-on way.

This year QMII will give her live New Year speech from Fredensborg.

That's because of ongoing renovations at and around Amalienborg to secure the place against having it's basements flooded.
The change in the climate has led to more and heavier rain here in DK. Cloudbursts are now relatively common, while they only a couple of decades ago was something extraordinary.

Queen Margrethe is a very astute woman and her New Year's Speech shows that she too sees a necessity to slow down, smell the roses and act with kindness. She has reminded the people of Denmark of the thanks they owe to their Military personnel, Police Officers, Firemen/women, Doctors, Nurses, Aides, and the list goes on.

Basically, no man or woman is an island and, as they go through the coming year, the way they live their lives contributes to the wellness and welfare of Denmark and the Danes. And, she didn't forget those Danes abroad, working, holidaying or even having emigrated from Denmark, they too fly the flag for good or ill for Denmark.

QMII's speech has generally been given a favorable review, even though some think it's forgettable.

There were a few things worth noticing. QMII cracked the whip slightly against those whose greed has led them to betray the trust of the society. There was no doubt as to who she meant.
DK has had a number of very serious cases in the past year.
A massive case of embezzlement.
The largest bank involved in a massive case money laundering.
And a family involved in big scale fraud.
- Not to mention the world wide tax scandal.

Apart from that she focused very much on online behavior. Basically remember to think before you hit send, when you are commenting.
She also urged people to be more present, with those they are in physical contact with, rather than living their lives through electronic devises.

For the first time she spoke directly to the children of DK. Told them that they are good enough as they are, they don't have to be perfect. And she called on them to be good mates.

PH was very much remembered indirectly, because on her desk stood a miniature model of one of his sculptures, he made back in the 90s. That was the hand holding a jewel.

Thanks for that Muhler. She is very up to date with what is affecting society.

We have just endured a royal commission on our big 4 banks/ ripping off customers in a very bad way. Trouble is our previous treasurer was adament we didn't need an enquiry into the banks. Everyone in this country know they are the biggest crooks in town.
Trouble is that treasurer is now our Prime Minister, at least until May 2019.

Amen to that one, Tarlita!

We have an expression here that rings better in Danish of course: Banditter i habitter, which translated roughly = crooks in suits.
Bankiers are creeping down towards journalists and politicians in regards to least respectable occupations.

As we grow up and older, our Monarch is our one constant in life. Always there with a kind word and wise words. And at Christmas it was always a tradition I grew up with to watch The Queens speech.
Sadly nowadays people here are too busy with other things or just don't care. Younger ones don't have the TIME for traditions anymore.
Australia's Queen is many miles away, yet we are delighted to see her when she visits.
And just like Denmarks Queen, our Armed Forces and Police swear their allegience to our distant British Queen. I better stop before I start a republic debate, which is what I don't want.

But having followed Crown Princess Mary's journey into the DRF I have come to love and respect Denmarks remarkable Queen, who has such wonderful qualities.
And I thank Muhler and others again who over the years have taken the time to translate her speeches for us. I raise a butterscotch schapps to you for all your kindnesses.
Cheers T.

I luv bertie would know. Usually Christmas Day around 3pm our time I think. But it becomes confusing now as Queensland is not on daylight savings time, like Sydney or Melbourne.
And I think her speech is repeated in the evening as well on our ABC.
I Luv Bertie would know.

In the afternoon on the 25th?

Bad time! Too late for it to become a lunch-event and too early for dinner.
I understand you Australians BBQ on the 25th? So I imagine people are all over the place in the afternoon that day.

True. Outside cooling off with a swim or torturing uncle jack playing backyard cricket with the cousins.
Now I have had more time to think about it just before dinner time or before the 6 pm news.
I have a hard time remembering things like that.
