A couple of posts have been moved to the correct thread.

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 S°rensen: 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-J°rgensen: 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.
