The first pics from the Regent Couple's visit to the small island of Orø. The island located in Roskilde Fjord is a sailor's paradise in regards to the scenery.
http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billedern...ertogt#slide-1

The last pic is of an old woman wearing the local traditional costume, - she also a folk-dancer. This costume dates back to the 1700's.

(To be moved).

Yes, he has a unique style.
Prins Henrik was visiting "the friendliest biker club in the world" yesterday, MC Island.

But today they are visiting Kerteminde, a charming litte town on the Island of Funen and the loacl paper is, to put it mildly, covering the visit intensively!

Here with a (so far) 39 pic gallery: Royalt besøg: Regentparret på vej i karet - fyens.dk - Kerteminde
Kerteminde Harbour is too small for Dannebrog, so the Regent Couple were ferried in in the chaluppe.
Notice the honour gauds from the local Homeguard. They are carrying their weapons in a manner that goes from correct to "like carrying your grandpa's shovel". That's part of the charm.

Did you know... that people on the island of Funen, don't speak Danish like the rest of us do? They sing.
Or more correctly their dialect has a very distinct melodic sound, especially to the west and south of Funen.

ADDED; A gallery of the Guards Hussars: http://www.fyens.dk/article/2310888:...rerne-tog-imod
Let's go through the pics, shall we?
#1: A trooper with a platoon flag. This is a modern unit flag and not a traditional cavalry standard or estandart, they are smaller. Notice the head adornment on the horse. Originally that was genuine protection for the horse, but now it's reduced in size and is only ornamental.

#2: Close combat with sabres. Normally that would only take place in a melee. The ideal thing was to cut the opponent while passing him on the horse. Such light sabres were prodominantly designed to maim the enemy rather than killing him. An ideal target was the face, which is why you would often see so many disfigured cavalrymen after a major war.

#3: The locals also gave a show.

#5: The troopers are here wearing the red fur (jacket) on top of the blue dolman. Normally the fur was only worn this way for warmth and in bad weather.

#6: The troopers with and without the red fur. The blue dolman is easier to see. Hungarian hussars, which all hussars stem from, didn't use bottons, instead they used strings. That is clearly evident here in the white and very elaborate strings on the uniforms.

#7: In attake. Hussars were small men riding nimble horses, geldings and sometimes mares. They were also preferably bright and full of initiative. - In contrast to say cuirassiers, about whom it was said and only half jockingly that they shouldn't be too bright and preferably have no imagination at all. Instead they should be big men who would charge massed infantry without question or hesitation. - Anyone with a little imagination might realise the folly of trotting towards an infantry square, knowing perfectly well that every single musket in that square is aimed directly at you! Thus getting the idea of turning back...

#8: A great view of a trooper on his horse, with the sabre shouldred. Rookie cavalrymen had the annoying habit of hacking themselves in the foot while wielding the sabre, so all sabres were blunt until they knew what they were doing.
The head adorment on top of their kepi is called a "svejf" and it's meant to resemble the mane of the horse, not the tale!

Right now the Regent Couple are arriving at the town of Bogense, also on Funen.

In the meantime Berlingske Tidende has provided this illustrated summary of the tour so far. 36 pics. Se billederne: Margrethe og Henrik på sommertogt | www.b.dk

#1: Here during their tour through the town of Kerteminde. Fortunately there are still charming old mills dotted all over the country.

#2: The Guards Hussars through the mainstreet of Kerteminde.

#6: Here visiting the Johannes Larsen Museum where the art interested QMII with great interest studied some sketches. - I have to confess that I have no idea who Johannes Larsen was.

#8: On the island of Orø, on top of a small hill locally known as Margrethe Hill. The last time Orø had a royal visit was more than 600 years ago, and the regent back then was Margrethe I.
Traces of what is believed to be a hunting manor owned by QMI has been found on that hill.

#12: PH being put to work plucking a camel. This is a place for youths with mental issues.

#16: A couple wearing a traditional local costume. This particular costume go back to the early 1700's.

#17: PH visting the local biker club, MC Island. Here he rode backseat.

#18: In the meantime QMII visited a local kindergarten.

#19: And, hold on to your hats, the local lawnmover-guild. Who is working on some sort of project, whatever that may be. Haven't been able to figure it out yet.

#20: One of the perks of going visiting small towns as a royal are all the local delicacies you acquire. Here a jar of frehsly made honey.

#32: There is also a local club for American classical cars on Orø and PH hitched a ride back to QMII.

#34, 35, 36: Where he was welcomed by a delighted QMII.

I wish M&F also would go on a yearly cruise, instead of just every few years. They might just well get used to it.

Muhler, I agree re F&M. A yearly tour would be great. I hope a tour comes up soon.

Thank you, fairy Tale.

A calorie-bomb like that is just what any man needs. - And who can withstand the alluring scent from a hotdog stand anyway?

I think it's even harder to withstand such an adorable little cookee than to reject the snack

A video and gallery of the Regent Couple's visit to Haderslev. The town of Haderslev has a harbour big enough for Dannebrog to go in.

The video also illustrates why one of PH's nicknames is "Kaptajn Vom = Captain Gut" - after a cartoon figure. http://www.faraos.dk/Content/photos/...5993_large.jpg

There is also a gallery.

Sorry, the royal dachshunds were also present or not? I like when they are present and add a bit of informality to Queen's visit.
