Thanks, Muhler. A good idea that makes perfect sense. Helps everyone feel more relaxed.

A very nice gallery from Royalista

There's absolutely no doubt who's the father of those two :-)

Tonight a gala show will be recorded, celebrating the change to the Constitution in 1915, that allowed women to vote. The show will be aired tomorrow on Constitution Day.

But here are the first pics of the DRF arriving to the gala show:
Fest for 100 års kvinders stemmeret – Ekstra Bladet
QMII, M&F and Joachim and our Marie.

Try keep an eye out on the DR1 site. It's after all their gala.

Thanks for the pictures everybody.

I see our Queen again have to go without her Henri by her side. That he will probably get some criticism for in the morning newspapers

Frederik and Mary looks lovely and relaxed as always.
You can't see our Mary just has landed after her flight home from her working trip in New York, that woman simply can't suffer much from jetlag ;-)

Tomorrow morning they will again participate in several events in connection with the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage.

Well, at least PH is legally excused, as he is on the Isle of Wright today.

DR1 will show the official celebrations of the 1915 Constitution giving women right to vote tomorrow, live from 09.00 (the show recorded today will be shown in the evening).
It will be shown on the DR1 sister channel DR2, so perhaps you will be able to watch it outside DK. Not least since the DRF will show up in force tomorrow forenoon.

Very sweet.

I cannot resist: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img537/8317/w5oKZb.jpg
Observe and admire how Joachim, being the perfectly dressed gentleman he is, naturally has a handkerchief in his breast pocket.
I notice not all the gentlemen present were similarly completely attired...

Are you able to watch this live link?

https://www.dr.dk/tv/live/dr2#!/

It's from the official celebrations at the Parliament. The DRF will arrive in ten fifteen minutes after this is posted.

The weather is great BTW.

ADDED: The DRF will be received by the Presidium of the Parliament. Then they will walk to the montre where the Constitution is displayed and here there will be a photo call, before moving on to the actual celebration.

I think I can safely promise lots of pics coming up, because the weather is bright and sunny and Benedikte, J&M and M&F where waiting a while on the repos for QMII to arrive. - With no umbrellas needed

For once the PM was standing with the Presidium at the foot of the stairs to receive the DRF. Don't know why.

The 1915 Constitution was the first where the balance of power finally shifted to the Parliament and as such it ended the last remnants of Absolutism. I.e. that the monarch had or could have a final say or at least had a decisive
influence on politics.
That also led to the Easter Crisis a few years later where a frustrated King X sacked the government, without appointing a new government among the elected politicians. (But that's another story)
The 1915 Constitution is also significant in being the first truly genuine democratic constitution, because women were allowed to vote.

She's getting older, QMII. She's almost slumping in her chair and that's not like her!

First pic from BB: Kronprinsesse Mary og kronprins Frederik til kæmpefest i Folketinget | Billed Bladet

Good grief! Is it just me or does QMII decidedly not look well today?
Perhaps her back is bad? - Then the entertainment isn't something that would make you tap your feet!

QMII may have looked frail, but she is in top form!
She is right now giving a speech and it's hilarious!

The main topic is of course women's right to vote, but also domestic servants were allowed to vote.
Among the many funny details in her speech, she told an anecdote about her grandfather Christian X, who was known to be an arch conservative and when a deputation of what in English could be called suffragettes came to pay their respect to the king after the change of the Constitution, one of them exclaimed: "Your Majesty, this is the happiest day of my life". To which Christian X retorted: "Well, I think you should go home and make your husband a cup of coffee".

- QMII deservedly got an enthusiastic and long applause.

For those interested in history here is a map of Europe showing when women were allowed to vote. There are a number of countries that surprised me!
