Petite Marie's LiW, Britt Siesbye was there as well and she was wearing a skirt... a big yellow-orange and very bright and very noticable skirt. - Even a blind man would put on sunglasses....

BT has an article about why QMII is not going to the wedding in Monaco. Margrethe dropper Monaco-bryllup - Royale - BT.dk

It more or less confirms what we already know, the DRF take turn in going to weddings and similar events abroad.
Lene Balleby says: "It's a decision you make in the family about who will take part in what".

And she adds that M&F and Joachim and our Marie will go to Monaco and take part in the events there Friday as well as the wedding Saturday.

Jean Michel Jarre will play at an concert Friday. - That's sound interesting! I enjoyed Jean Michel Jarre's early work but his later albums became weird and I don't know if he's done anything interesting lately.

- J&M stayed behind in Berleburg because Joachim is not so close to the Berleburgs and because QMII after all is Nathalie's moster = maternal aunt and she would of course like to see her sisters.

QMII staying behind at the Monaco wedding makes sense as well, in my opinion, as M&F are the natural choice to choose to represent DK at weddings and because La Belle Marie is French and Joachim is fluents in french and very fond of French culture.

Oh, Those of us who were born in the later Stoneage are of course familiar with Jean Michel Jarre, but in case you don't:

I'm sure you were listening to Jean Michel Jarre, while falling asleep in your cradle?
But if you enjoyed JMJ you probably enjoyed Mike Oldfield as well.
Alas, neither of these talented gentlemen appear to be on the list of favourite music of Frederik. But he's after all a mere yearling.
Joachim is into very heavy rock (Alexandra is not!), so I fear he's beyond cultural salvation as well...

Isn't this an event where the whole family, Frederik, Mary, Joachim & Marie would also attend?
All 3 sisters look great and nice seeing them together.

Usually, this event is only attended by the three sisters IIRC. It's for the Queen Ingrid Fund.

I think the only time all of the families attended was for Ingrid's 100th Birthday?

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #28, 2011.
Tre søstre fejrer deres mor - Three sisters celebrate their mother.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

It was time for the presenting of Queen Ingrid Commemoration grants. The two recipients were a balletdancer, Ghrai DeVore, She's American and the first foreigner to recieve the grant and a conductor, Thomas Søndergård.
The grant is for 250.000 DKK.

And in order for all three royal sister to have something to do, they've split up the task.
QMII presents the first grant, kidsis Benedikte presents the flowers. Then Queen Anne-Marie presents the second grant and littlesister Benedikte handle the flowers.
This is the fourth time the grant is presented and it appears that it has become a kind of tradition that the presentation get messed up a bit, to the delight of the audience and the sisters. (*)

After the concert in connection with the presentation the sisters dined at restaurant The Paul along with some guests and the recipients.
Then it was back home to Amalienborg, where Queen Anne-Marie and Princess Benedikte both have an apartment.

QMII was wearing a dress from 1992 by Jørgen Bender and now I'll venture out in the deep end: The article says the dress was prevously long with a "tournure". Now, I have no idea what a tournure is... A train of some sort?

(*) I remember one presentation where Benedikte almost had to chase one of the recipients, who hadn't realised he was supposed to get flowers as well.m

According to the DRF calendar QMII and M&F will attend a memorial service in Copenhagen Cathedral at 14.00 tomorrow Wednesday on the occassion of the tragedy in Norway.

- As expected the Norwegian Seaman's Church has been considered too small.

(Corrected, Thanks Nordic).

Yes, this is the official memorial service.

The PM will give a speech and so will the Norwegian ambassador.
And representatives from the official DK will be present, i.e. from the Parliament and other dignitaries.
It will be shown live on both public service networks, DR1 and TV2.

ADDED: The Ministry of Justice has announced that 27. July will be an official memorial day for the victims in Norway and that means that Dannebrog will fly on half mast Wednesday.

The royal family will attend a memorial in honour of the dead in the Norwegian massacre this afternoon at Copenhagen's cathedral. The service starts at 2 pm Danish time but according to TV2 which will be transmitting it live, the transmission starts between noon and 1 pm - TV 2 sender live fra mindegudstjeneste - TV 2 Nyhederne
