I love this sentence: "She decided what to wear, and if anyone had imagined something else, one might as well forget it." I can see that very easily in Margrethe!

Absolutely, I loved that as well. You can easily imagine the
three sisters playing and Magrethe already showing her strong
personality, plus her fascination for decoration and plays she
still has today and lives out through her art and work for the
theatre/ballet..Anne-Marie's interview is surely a nice and
welcome birthday present

Quick question for the Danish members: here, Billed Bladet uses the terms "storesostre" and "lillesostre" rather than just "sostre," and they were used frequently in Jan Bloch Skipper's book Tre Sostre. Is it more common in Denmark to always refer to a sibling as your older sister or younger sister, rather than just your sister?

And what connotation do these words have? In English, you could say older sister/younger sister or big sister/little sister - the first is just a factual statement of the age difference; the second is much more affectionate. I've seen storesostre and lillesostre translated both ways, but I was curious which meaning was closer.

Sorry, that's all really random - I'm sort of a language freak!

I'm sorry, I can't help you with that, Maura724..

Billed-Bladet has added an article about the interview
with lots of nice pics of Queen Anne-Marie at her home
in London (that were taken during the interview).

Here are some examples and links to the article and gallery:

Thanks you!!!Thanks you!!!!

In addition to the photo of Queen Margaret, there are two pictures that I love ... Prince Nikolaos with Queen Ingrid of Denmark and the picture of King Constantine with his son Nikolaos, this is before the photo of King Paul. She is wonderful ....

What a pleasure to see the photos of Queen Anne Marie. She has always been a delightful, beautiful, dignified lady. And what a beautiful family of children and grandchildren she has!

Are you sure? It doesn't look very much like her to me. I wondered about that painting, too.

I thought it too, there are some facial similarities but the lady in the portrait has long blond hair...
AM was always a brunette as a young lady and I don't remember to have seen a photo of her with such long hair...

Quite fitting that an Olympic Gold Medallist and member of the IOC attend such a ceremony.

Yes this is true, but Jose Antonio Samarah also was a friend of the Kings of Greece, he was present at the wedding of their children ....

A thief took away a brazalet (made with a ruby and saphire) from Queen Anne-Marie (inherited from Queen Olga of Greece) a the airport of Geneve, Switzerland. There is a legal dispute about that issue with the airport of Geneve. Check the information at the minute 4:39 of this video:

I have just finished watching the doc listed above and couldn't help thinking the pity of it all! Constatine and Anna Maria are such well adjusted people, yet it could be as a result of being overthowed that they sought to better themselves and find a different meaning in life.
