Royals have a strange working life I think. Sometimes they don't have any outside events for a week to ten days or so and then they have several over the next week. So when we don't see them for a week or so they must be getting ready for the events they do have. Just a musing I have. I would like to see more from the Danida dinner.

Mary looks young in a lot of these pictures! I thought she and Frederik, (understandably), both looked completely worn out during most of the twins' first year. It's good to see her looking brighter!

What makes you think that she didn't wear tights? Sheer ones are hard to see :)

Mary rarely wear tights, especially sheer one. Sometimes she wears dark, opaque and has a tendency to match them with lighter shoes.

Huh? I have some closeups of her shoes and in all of them you can see sheer pantyhose.

I don't analyze Mary's legs so closely so you might be right. I lean on previous Mary's outings without tights even when weather was bad.

Yes thanks for all these pictures. It looked like it was a great day in Kolding. Mary looks really happy, she shines!

And the weather here in Denmark is also wonderful in these days

That movie shows every sign of being a block buster.
There are some heavy capacity actors in the main roles.

It has however been critizised by some historians for being too shallow and also for using contemporary language.
Okay, what can you expect from a movie, covering a pretty important and complicated subject in Danish history. Not to mention a scandalous love story.
And who can blame them for trying to reach a wider audience by using contemporary language.

The story about Struense and his reforms is endlessly fascinating in the sense that he was a workaholic and an idealist. Most of his reforms were implemented, even after he was removed from power. Reforms Denmark badly needed.
But as always you should try reverse things. From the nobility, the class of civil servants, the rest of the DRF and not least the State Council. Even the peasantry! - Who is this upstart who has usurped dictatorial powers? What is he doing?!? "Reforms, okay, fine. But hey, hey, hey, cool it! We want some influence too". - Struense was politically speaking a loose cannon, so he was inevitably stopped. At the cost of his head.

It must be interesting and I believe a little bit surreal too for Mary to watch a historical movie about the family she has married into and then go home to discuss it with her mother-in-law, who no doubt know all the details by heart.
At least she can't be sensing Struense's "ghost" so to speak, because the old Christiansborg where most of the events back then took place has burned down.

In my brief armchair tour through Danish History I have come across Struense's name. Muhler was he around during the time of Frederik VII & Christian the nineth? Mads is a good actor, have seen him in one of your Police dramas shown here and also saw him in a UK movie can't remember which one though. However, he was very good.

He also played Le Chiffre in the Bond movie Casino Royale; and he's captain Rochefort in the new version of The Three Musketeers

He was around in the late 1700's, during the reign (sort of, the man was at least partly insane) of Christian VII.

You can read a lot about Struensee (I checked my spelling ) here: Johann Friedrich Struensee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mads Mikkelsen is a brilliant and very versatile actor. Both in Denmark, but now also internationally.

Thanks User Dane and Muhler. I will look up Johann Struensee in Wikipedia. Should have done that in the first place. Mads was very goodlooking, but now looks distinctly middle-aged. However, that doesn't detract from the fact that I like him as an actor. I am sure the rest of his career will be very good. By the way we have The Killing shown here but its on too late for me. Have to sit up and watch at least one episode now.
