The Danes (QM & Henrik) have Dachshunds, you can see them in pictures every now and then (especially in the summers when they are in France, they are often caught on camera around them). I don't know how many though, or the names. Does anyone know?

Today Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik visited the town of Svaneke (celebrating 450 years) on the island of Bornholm. They arrived with the Dannebrog. Pictures from Polfoto.

Prince Henrik visiting Bergen, Norway

Ai ai ai! How pretty here is.

King Olav leveled with the people when he in his days took the streetcar. Prince Henrik of Denmark rised high over Bergen when he took Fløibanen (it’s a “railway” taking you up the mountain). But he bought a ticket.

”I have a ticket!”

With three bodyguards and a valeton his tail, His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark steps in to the Fløibane hall. But like all other mortals he had to buy a ticket before the doors open and he can step on board. The Prince came without a limousine. And no red carpets awaited the very popular husband of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark when he visited Bergen. He didn’t even ask for his own Fløibane cart, and Bergens Tidende (the regional newspaper of Bergen) was welcome to join the ride.

An unexpected stop
Tourists and Princes steps in, and the cart begins to move. “So, here we go” the Prince says. He sits down where the best views are, at the front, with panoramaviews of the city that removes itself underneath him. But oh! Then the cart stops at Fjellveien (Mountain road). ”Why are we stopping?” the valet, colonel and chief of secretary Mogens Christensen wants to know. “Are we half way up?” Prince Henrik ask curiously. And the Bergens Tidende is invited for a chat, on the seat up front in the Fløybane cart. “Look at that, ai ai ai, it’s so nice” says a enthusiastic Prince, that sees both shopping centres and City Hall turn into little doll houses way down below. “I’ve been to Bergen twice before, yes, I have acctually sailed here with the Danish Royal ship – Dannebrog. But it’s not because of the views His Royal Higness is visiting Bergen.

Prince and President
Because the French born Henrik isn’t only Prince, he is also President. Not of Denmark, but of the European Culture Herigtage Organisation – Europa Nostra – which has a congress in Bergen this week. “I’ve been President in ten, wait, fifteen years. We work to preserve old buildings and prevent the distruction of them, and have decided to have the congress in Bergen, because Bryggen (the pier/dock of Bergen city centre) is on UNESCOs list” the Prince tells. The royal group already came to Bergen on Wednesday, but it hasn’t been time for sightseeing, Prince Henrik can tell. “It has been so much work and so many meetings”.

Higher than Ejer Bavnehøj
he Fløibanen has reached the top, the Prince hums a cheery tune, as he wanders off to enjoy the view and a dinner on Fløyen (the mountain has a restaurant on top). “The Prince doesn’t have such mountains to climb in his kingdom?” the journalist from Bergens Tidende would like to know. “No, in Denmark the highest mountain is 150 metres. “180” the valet corrects him. Bergens Tidende did some research, it was the valet who guessed closest. Denmarks highest mountain, Ejer Bavnehøj (Not Himmelbjerget, as we were led to believe), is 171 metres.

from hellomagazine.com

Queen Margrethe of Denmark has a reputation for always keeping her feet placed firmly on the ground. And the hands-on royal proved just how down to earth she can be when she paid a visit to her country's famous rock carvings of Bornholm this week.

The sprightly 65-year-old, who was dressed down in a casual brown suit, got down on all fours to get a closer look at some of the historic engravings before lying on her side to inspect another design.

Her husband Prince Henrik also seemed to find the visit fascinating, kneeling beside his wife as the two chatted animatedly about the carvings.

The island of Bornholm, which is located in the Baltic Sea between Denmark and Sweden, is famous in archaeological circles. Many of the simple designs date back to the Stone Age, while the more intricate carvings, depicting seagoing vessels, were gouged into the rocks during the Bronze and Iron Ages.

While the monarch's relaxed and informal approach might raise a few eyebrows in other countries, it will come as small surprise to the people of Denmark. Queen Margrethe, a graduate of no fewer than five universities, has always shown a greater passion for knowledge and culture than for the strictures of etiquette.

This is why she's my absolute favorite!!! Her Majesty is so intelligent, vibrant, elegant, and real.

I've just heard the news of Queen Margrethe's illness and I am so upset. I hope that her doctors will do all they can to ease any pain felt.

Her Majesty isn't so young anymore and I suppose a bit of this stuff is to be anticipated, but I still hope she gets some pain relief. It must be very upsetting to have your body aching all the time! :(

President Bush and Mrs Bush with their daughter Jenna have arrived in Denmark for their short visit. Fredrik and Mary did not meet them at the airport as the press wrote, instead it was the Prime Minister and his wife Anne-Mette. The President and Mrs Bush left the airport by helicopter quickly to fly to Fredensborgs Palace where they were greeted by Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik, and where they will spend the night.

Getty:


More of the President and Mrs Bush's arrival at Fredensborg Palace and the meeting with Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik...

It's great to see these pictures...I think that Queen Margrethe and Laura Bush are such classy people and I'm glad to see the US president visiting some smaller nations for a change. I hope we'll see Bush with more royalty in the future.
