Thanks for all the photos everyone. I think the photos of the Queen's daschund sneaking in the crates are cute.:p

It seems that the First family were received quite warmly by the royal family. It was also nice gesture to present the President with a "birthday" cake.

PS. The Crown Princess looked very radiant in her gold and white ensemble.

It's the head of the Danish government, though I don't know what his name is.

He's the Prime Minister of Denmark, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

I believe I read a few years back (I just thought about this while working...crazy what you can think of when you'd rather be doing anything then what you're suppose to be doing!) that quite a few Kings/Queens travel with their own cooks and eat only meals of those cooks as well... so maybe it's not looked upon as an insult so much as a protocol...just a thought.

I agree that people need to keep their personal feelings towards Bush out of their opinions of things he does out of necessity. By this I mean, it's obvious there are quite a few people on the boards who dislike President Bush for whatever reason, and their posts are attacks towards Bush... it's as though people don't take into account that he is a leader of a nation and there are somethings that he is required to do... and somethings we will never understand, but are policy. I do believe that this cook incident is just that, policy, and to comment that he wanted his cook to make him a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich (as though he is a simple man), or to say something along the lines of, "...it's Bush so it doesn't surprise me..." seems quite rude. (I'm paraphrasing so people get the jest, there were many comments such as these, I'm not trying to single anyone in particular out, those two types of comments and comments simply stick out in my mind at the moment.) I, obviously am a Bush supporter, so my views and offences probably come off as such... but at the same time, I supported Clinton, so this can't be simply writtend off as my political view as far as which "side" I support. In my opinion, President Bush is my president, at this point, I need to support him... I think my mind set is kind of that of, "I can talk poorly of him, but those who don't live in the US can't...childish I know, but it's a deep loyalty that you can't really fault...

Anyway, that's my two sense. Went off on a tangent...sorry! Hope everyone is enjoying their days...or nights...or whatever... I'm off to enjoy some very beautiful (and HOT) Colorado summer sunshine! At least while it lasts...it's suppose to rain later this evening...go figure.

Yes, in the years that I have followed the British royal family and their travels, I have read quite a few references to the Queen's food being prepared by members of her staff while abroad. I don't know that this always is the case but I know it has been in some situations. I do wonder how often this happens as a matter of security and we simply don't know about it.

That may be and all but I would not be so forgiving towards them either. They may do this and all but if we don´t know about it then we have no reason to comment. I heard that King Hussein of Jordan was one of them. I can perfectly understand that. However, this president(and really it could be any president. Maybe previous presidents did this. But I doubt Taft did. He probably ate everything near and far anyway). But if he is the first president to do this then it´s a shame that his advisors think this. But I still think it´s an insult to your hosts. A leader of a country is still a guest.

According to Politiken, Mrs. Bush wanted to go to a Danish kindergarten. This happened while the president was talking to the Danish PM. Evidently, each little kid had to be body searched and their lunch boxes searched.

Also what about the dog? Stole 4 sandwiches after all. He should have been stopped. Geez. A security lapse. :)

Exclamation

A very nice gesture by Her Majesty to have a cake for the President. Although I'm a little taken aback by the item about the President bringing along his own chef. I would imagine Danish food is pretty top-notch stuff, and I personally would want to eat what my host(ess) was eating. But perhaps there were reasons of security, if not palate.

Either that or he's on a specific diet.

I really don't understand why some of you are complaining about the food situation. Sure it was prepared by his own chef, but the Prez and family ate off the Danish fine china, drank out of the goblets, sat next to their hosts, talked to them, and were quite polite. WHy the fuss?

Anyway. Fred looked like he enjoyed conversing with Jenna. I have not seen him like that in a long, long time. Anyway, the Danish PM is quite handsome.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think it strange that the President and Frederik were seated together, when normal etiquette would have placed a woman (perhaps Mary) between them?

This may sound strange, but why is Jenna accompanying her parents on their official trips?Does anyone else find that a little strange?

Maybe b/c his wife was beside the Prince. Also b/c Jenna needed a companion and it would not be right to have the PM there as he woudl have needed to accompany Mary. So I guess since Jaochim and ALex weren't there there was this arrangement. But I don't relaly know.

Hmmm...maybe the same reason Chelsea accompanied her parents (the Clintons) on their trips.
Gosh so many 'strange' theories.

It was mentioned that after the G8 conference, and the Pres goes back to Washington, the First Lady and Jenna would be meeting up with Barbara (the other twin) in Africa. Apparently Barbara is doing volunteer work with an AIDS-related organization over there.

I think Chelsea also accompanied her parents on official trips too.
