Queen Margrethe has said that she will stay as Queen until she takes her final breath,so we hopefully have Queen Margrethe for a long time.

The Queen should stay Queen until she dies. That's the way it should be for all monarchs unless, they are physically or mentally incapable of serving the nation. Since she isn't in a coma and isn't insane, I'd say she will be around for awhile.

I think the Queen does however, have health problems. So for her to hand off a few more duties as her age increases is logical. It is a way to get Mary and Fred to ease more and more into their future roles instead of having everything dumped in their lap.

Regarding the fact that Joachim and Frederik seem to gradually take over patronages from their father I wonder if it isn't Prince Henrik who has health problems. He doesn't look very healthy in general and he fell ill with bronchitis during the state visit to South Corea. Perhaps the Queen is reducing her duties to spend more time with her husband?

I think all mentioned reasons mayby right but I want to add that giving some her duties to Mary shows trust about crown princess. I think it's quite big thing for crown princess but ofcourse it's logical that when parents want little rest or are little ill then their children or son/daugther-in-law takes some their duties.

I also think that both the Queen and PH are in bad health.

Mary may well have asked QM for more opportunities to prove herself ...

I don't think that at all! It is quite obvious that the Queen must rest more and the King is not in good heakth either so it is natural that the Queen give more duties to the future Queen that has give proofs until now that she will be a wodnerful Queen of Denmark!!

I think perhaps the Queen and Prince Henrik are faced with an anavoidable circumstance....aging!

The fact both are/were smokers has done little to aide the process, of course, but I believe there are a number of years left in Daisy and 'H' yet!

Alas biboquinhas - we haven't spotted the first snowflake yet - but hopefully we will soon. Unfortunately, we often only get proper snow weather after Christmas (and each year we - at least the children - hope it will come early!)

I don't think so. If more duties are allocated to Mary QM will do the first step not the other way around. Mary is not in the position to decide who will do what in the DRF. I believe QM has understood Mary is an asset and is pleased with the way her daughter in law performs her duties so it's a logical step to allocate more, especially when the Queen and Prince Henri are feeling the strains of age

If they have to be playing in the snow, you might have to wait a bit. It isn't snowing that often i Denmark. Last winter we only had about four days with the ground covered in snow.

But seeing them playing in the snow would be a nice picture

Maybe I'm missing something, but who's Christina? Did you mean Isabella?

We already had the first snow two weeks ago

This is a nice article that was published by the german magazine STERN Prinzessinnen-TÜV: Thron oder Hohn? - Lifestyle - stern.de It does check how the newer crown princesses do manage their jobs and if they are already ready for the throne (Palast oder Ballast) About Mary it says

In Denmark the oceanic climate is combined with a west/northwest wind that leads barometer low pressure areas from the sea to land. This combined with Denmark beeing flat without a single mountain - results in very milde winters.

Though beeing a nordic country the winters i Denmark therefore usually are milder then winters i the southern midt european countryes.

The winters in Norway, Sweden and Finland though are rather tough and they usually get a lot of snow - unlike Denmark.

So if we are going to see pictures of F&M and the kids playing in the snow, it will most likely be snow fallen in The Alpes, Norway or any other country then Denmark. I do hope though that we get sufficient snow to build just one snowman.

Something similar (in a short form) was also in BUNTE. The winner was Crownprincess Maxima (20 of 20 points), second Crownprincess Victoria...
It was also in a Norwegian newspaper (wrote BUNTE).

I love these article from Ekstrabladet (it is so funny):
"Mary: I am not rich"
Ekstra Bladet - Mary: Jeg er ikke rig

I love the fine irony in the article - and behind the situation. The Christmas Seal helps really poor children and she said: "I am not rich..." I think it is a little bit "unlucky" to say something like this in a situation like this...
