Summary of article in Billed Bladet #06, 2011.
Marie og Mary fejrede fødselsdag på slottet - Marie and Mary celebrated birthday at the palace.
Written by our sentinels Ulrik Ulriksen & Frodi Holm Knudsen.

As you may remember, Mary turned 39 last Saturday, and she celebrated her birthday at Amalienborg.
First she was celebrated by her nearest family, i.e. Frederik and all their children....
At 16.00 Princess Marie, her Joachim and bette Henrik in a stroller left the palais in which they have their apartment and after going for a little trip to Kastellet (*) they returned to Amalienborg to visit Mary on her birthday 45 minuttes later.
They stayed for a couple of hours before walking across the square to their own apartment.

Bette Henrik was observed having a cloth copy of the fourlegged, white furry oddball, Apple in his stroller. - One may wonder what fate eventually awaits Apple, if and when J&M have another child.... (**)

The private friends of Mary and Frederik arrived in the evening. At 19.00. Among them were naturally Caroline and Peter Heering, Christoffer Carstenschiold, Ellen Hillingsø, Jeppe and Birgitte Handwerk, Helle and Otto Reedtz-Thott, altogether ten guests.
The mood was apparantly fine from the beginning, our two vigilant reporters, standing at the square, could hear the music going at full throttle. After about an hour, all the guest went up to the private apartment.
However the guests left farly early, so come Sunday, M&F could go for a long drive.

(*) A part of the fortifications in and around Copenhagen. Now a mixed military complex and public park. Located not far from Amalienborg.

(**) If Apple had been a male I would have been appalled on his behalf. It's not fair to take away a man's, ahem, doll...
But Apple is female, so that is not the case....

I'm not quite updated as to event on this board, in regards to coverage by Billed Bladet, so instead of trawling through the various threads I'll list the articles from last week here and you can tell me which ones you are interested in and which ones have already beed covered.

DRF articles in Billed Bladet #05, 2011:

The DRF at handball finals.

Our Marie and her Joachim in France.

Prince Henrik, Nikolai and Felix and grandpapa's decorated elephant.

Thanks Muhler for the info on the bday party. Perhaps they used the room labelled as a music/library room. From the photos of the new palace it had very dark walls almost a purple colour. Perhaps they were trying out the acoustics in that room while enjoying the party.

Well, the article actually says the Knights Hall/Great Hall, i.e. the largest room facing the square. But unless the reporters were standing on stepladders there is a limit to how much they would actually be able to see, so suffice to say that loud (dance-(*)) music came from the ground floor of the palais. - Perhaps they were testing the loudspeakers, while standing in say, the Garden Room?

(*) And as Ulrik Ulriksen is (also) a middleaged gentleman, the term "dance music" may be a bit loose. In my world anything after Dire Straits is basically hip hop - or something similar...

Yes, since it's supposed to be used for receptions, galas and parties, I guess some descreete loudspeakers have been set up in that room. - Aaand wonder if Frederik wouldn't have been tempted to demonstrate the capabillities to the guests?

WEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel, according to the VOGUE-Interview, a pair of large speakers was one of the first items to move in

But the Taffelsal is not so small, either

No the room I was thinking of wasn't the great hall nor the mural room. The room I had in mind has pillars with nice gold leaf effect and the walls were painted a very dark colour like a purple but with much more black tint added to it to make it darker.
Sorry I still do not know how to add a photo. I will try and change my avatar instead to show what I mean.

Thank You Sternchen. I must have missed it. Yes that is the room I meant. A nice looking colour but I don't know the name of it. I saw it listed as a music reading Library room.

Yes, it is the music and reading room at Beletagen, which is the first floor It looked like a kind of redish brown when I was standing in front of it

To me the colour in the reading/music-room looked like a warm deep purple :)

I personally think if Mary and Fred were to have guests and friends over for a small initimate birthday get-together they would use one of the smaller rooms that feature their modern art additions, like the purple mural room or my other favourite, the one with the psychadelic ceiling art...perfect for a party atmosphere...some of the other possible rooms shown look too large, and formal for such friendly festivities Even that room called the 'anretterum' with the sink and taps looks perfect for an informal party, add a few sofas and a few platters of food and drinks and that would be a the perfect place...

But lucky them to such a myriad of options to have a party...our entire house is probably smaller than one of their rooms! Jealous much :)

I wonder if the loud noise was to foil any audio recording of conversations that might be heard outside.
