Dear mods, this needs to be moved to the relevant thread: Valg får konsekvenser for Margrethe – Ekstra Bladet

Lene Balleby from the court has confirmed that the Regent Couple's visit to the Faeroe Islands has to be cut short.
QMII needs to be at home in Copenhagen, so that she can receive either the PM candidate who clearly won the general election, or meet all the party leaders for a so called Queen-round where leader points to whom they prefer to lead the next government.
As such the Regent Couple will return to Denmark sometime Friday 19th.

Dronningen udskyder sommerbesøg på Færøerne - Indland

Jyllands Posten writes today that the court has confirmed that the Regent Couple postpone their visit to the Faeroe Islands, due to the general election.
The visit will take place at a later but not yet disclosed time.

- There have been some criticism on the Faeroe Islands that the presence and thus expose of the members of the current government on the islans could influence the election. Or at the very least that the politicians will be more preoccupied with the visit, rather than focusing on the political issues of interest to the islanders (That one is from the republicans).

The press release from the court: Regentparrets besøg på Færøerne udsættes - Kongehuset

- The general election encompassing the entire realm takes place 18th June.

ADDED: http://www.bt.dk/royale/valget-kom-p...til-faeroeerne

Lene Balleby says to BT: "The final debate with the leaders of the parties on the Faeroe Islands takes place Wednesday evening 17th June at the same tim as the planned gala dinner in Torshavn. The two events are not easily compatible and as such the court together with the Lagmand (head of the autonomous government) has decided to postpone the Regent Couple's visit for some later date".

Lene Balleby denies that the decision should have anything to do with accusations of the visit perhaps being exploited politically: "No, it is not. It has always been a prerequiste for the visit that the political events on the Faeroe Islands must not have a direct influence on the shedule".

But why now?
"But it is only now, while all the peices in regards to the Faeroese election campaigning is falling into place that it has turned out that the ends cannot meet".

"

Faroese prime minister Aksel V. Johannesen is hosting the visit.

Queen's raid with the national flag to the North Atlantic islands offers a comprehensive program, where the Queen among others will experience the Faroe peculiar nature and culture.

Detailed program of the visit will be published later."

Thanks Polyesco

I'm actually disappointed that Henrik doesn't participate in the summer cruise to the Faroe Islands. Or perhaps I'm more surprised... I had thought he would.
There's more and more for me there suggest that there is more wrong than just a wish to "slow down" or retire.

Then Margrethe shall walk around alone... It will not be pictures the Danes will think is very nice to see I think. I hope hope Frederik and Mary will be added to the summer cruise. But they have also a very tightly packed calendar themselves.

It will be sad to see her taking such a trip alone. Maybe Joachim and Marie will accompany her.

From what i've heard from my danish friends, most danes loves and respect their Queen but don't care at all or very little for Henrik.
They feel sympathies for her and thinks that Henrik is letting her down in their last years instead of enjoying each other now when their kids are grown up and have their own families. But they also say it will be nice and probably good for the Queen to not having to worry over what Henrik has said to journalists.

Margrethe will be accompanied everywhere she goes on the Faroe Islands so she won't be much alone. I think it was more strange to see her alone at the photos in Norway recently with the Swedish and Norwegian royal couples. She looked like a widow even if she isn't. It will take some time to get used to that she will be working mostly alone from now on.

I don't think we should expect Frederik and Mary or Joachim and Marie to follow her everywhere she goes. They have their own schedule and small children they want to be as close as possible too.
Maybe Princess Benedikte or Queen Anne-Marie will follow her on some ocassions. Wouldn't it be nice to see Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne-Marie do the summer cruise together without their husbands ? I'm sure that would bring back lots of memories for the middle aged and older danes who was born during the reign of their father or grandfather.

I think it would be lovely to see the sisters (or several of them) enjoying a cruise together.

That actually sounds like a good option.

I don't think Queen Anne-Marie would go on such a visit. It's after work, not pleasure. In DK Anne-Marie would be treated like a queen, so there are considerations in regards to the protocol.
But Benedikte accompanying her sister, that would be great. I'm sure They would enjoy it and the Faeroe Islanders would appreciate it as well.

It had not even occurred to me that Benedikte could accompany QMII on the job, rather than M&F or J&M.
That's a nice and simple alternative.

I don't think Queen Anne-Marie will follow to Faroe Islands. Princess Benedikte may be following but i guess the most likely scenario is probably that QMII will go alone if PH is at home.

I thought more about Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne-Marie doing the annual summer cruise around in Denmark if Henrik decides to not follow.

A BB video of QMII boarding Dannebrog for the season: VIDEO: Dronning Margrethe trodsede regnen | BILLED-BLADET

Today QMII officially boarded Danneborg for the season and as you can see the weather was pretty terrible. (We had snow this weekend BTW) In fact when the driver opened the door for QMII the door actually slammed shut, so it was a luck she hadn't a leg or a hand injured.
