Interesting, Mariettz

The uniforms of the Guards Hussars are of course directly inspired by the Hungarian hussars. To see them and compare them in Faaborg can make any uniform-nerd drool.
I'll look forward to this.

That stuffed elephant is legendary in Denmark. In the 50's there was a very popular series of family movies called Far Til Fire (Father of Four). The main character was the youngest boy in the family, Lille Per (Little Per). Lille Per's loyal companion is the stuffed elephant on wheels, Bodil. In these days of remakes these movies are also being remade. The boy greeting the Queen plays Lille Per in the new movies and the man in the water plays the father. It seems the regent couple watched them film a scene for the new movie.

I must admit I've never been able to get behind the remakes, but I love the classic movies. One of my favourite Christmas songs was made for one of the original movies and naturally the elephant gets a mention in the song.
YouTube - Til julebal i Nisseland

Both CP Frederik and Prince Joachim have been teased about now having the title of "Father of Four".

Thanks, Iceflower

Yes, it's a bath-chair.

Plejehjem (*) nursing homes for elderly here in DK implement more and more robots, automatic beds, chairs, tools and so on.
The idea is partly to save money on staff, partly to allow the elderly to maintain as much control of their lives as possible, I.e. in regards to when to dress, when to get up in the morning, when to wash yourself. Rather than that being determined according to a schedule.
It's also meant to let the elderly retain at least some kind of dignity. No one want's to be helpless and personal grooming is among one of the last things you wish to leave to someone else.
Last but not least, machines and robots free staff (in theory) to interact on a more personal level with the elderly. Gives them time for a chat and so on.

(*) Not to be confused with a retirement home or elder centre, where elderly have their own small apartment and as far as possible tend to their own needs. Or they can go join other elderly for various activities or a meal.
A plejehjem, nursing home for elderly is the last stop before you move into the one-room apartment with a lid.
The generation of my parents and grandparents as well considered it shameful to be dependent of their children. They said so on many occasions.
Here in DK you are brought up to become independent. To be able to look after yourself, the sooner the better and if need be not having to rely on anyone, especially your children, until you die.
I mention that because in other cultures you are brought up to become a contributing part of the family network. The family will in return (is expected to) take care of you when you grow old.
In such cultures the concept of their parents ending up in a nursing home is considered a shame.
It's sometimes difficult for both sides to comprend the different outlooks.

thanks Muhler for this insight into Danish culture.
it is true, in the Hispanic community it is considered a shame/or frowned on to send your elder parents or grandparents to a nursing home. Usually it is expected for one to take care of your parents/grandparents.

I didn't know that story.
It doesn't seem like the Hungarian hussars were around when the Guards Hussars escorted the Regent Couple. A pity.

To judge by the photos the Queen looked far more at ease during
the island visits than during her visit in Faaborg! IMO is has something
to do with the fact that the islanders try to arrange the visit to the
best of their abilities without any pretence! That's when you see
HM in slacks and an old sweater and her hair looks as if it's been
combed with a hand grenade !
IMO that' a paradox of HM: she's good at the pageantry stuff and
she's good at the more relaxed style. However she appears a tad uncomfortable with "in-between" provincial arrangements, you know
when a town has been painted and asphalted to the nines and
people are bending over double to get things right and yet..somehow
they still manage to get it wrong or being a little too awestruck, if you know what I'm getting at!
My connections in Faaborg noted that the mayors wife skipped
the hat during her 15 mins of fame in the carriage procession with
her husband, HRH and HM! I mean, the court and the RF are
putting on a show by sending the household cavalry, carriages
and the old Daimlers to a small provincial town, and you would think
that those involved and invited to the reception on board the royal
yacht would do their best in return!
Maybe Faaborg (approx. 7.000 inhabitants!) is a not the place to
sport formal hats and fascinators, but AFAIK this is the first time
I've seen the wife of a Danish mayor dismiss protocol! Unless
I'm mistaken I think that any woman of an English hamlet would
go to the nearest M & S to get a £ 20 straw hat for a wedding, but
this is not how it operates over here I'm afraid!

Thanks for sharing your impressions, Viv! That was interesting to read!

The first part of the summer tour ended today, June 9, with a visit to Endelave and Margrethe has shown
that she doesn't have fears of contacts

One of the ways to hunt for rabbits is to use a ferret, in this case a ferret named Fritte. You simply let a ferret enter the boroughs (I think it's called) of rabbits and - eventually the ferret will emerge with or without a rabbit.

Fritte's owner told the Regent Couple about that and Prince Henrik held the the ferret, somewhat catiously, he was a bit worried that Fritte would eat his ear.
Then he handed over the animal to QMII and with ferrets being in the same line of business as dachhunds, she seemed to take a liking to Fritte. However the owner warned her, they can bite!
The owner also demonstrated how they use a collar with a beacon to track the whereabouts of Fritte and his colleagues. The alternative is to wait, and wait and wait for Fritte to finally emerge.
PH asked: "Do you use that to track down your wife as well"?
The owner replied jokingly "No, - but sometimes she slips a collar down my pocket in order to keep track of me".

Thanks for that, Muhler

Here's an additional gallery of the final day in Endelave. You rarely see someone riding on a bike and another
person with an umbrella running after that person And besides that Henrik seems to have been a bit too
fast for the protection
