Thats hilarious. the chef seems to have overeacted to me, so what if they occasionally eat reheated leftovers who doesn't?

I actually dont find anything funny about it at all.

Mr Kondo obviously feels very strongly about his occupation and stands by what he thinks is right & appropriate.

I empathise with his decision.

...something completely different from the royal chef..

According to the TV2 news online (http://nyhederne.tv2.dk/kongelig/art...p/4220425.html) QMII's knee replacement operation today went fine. The queen is expected to be released from hospital in a week's time and spend her recreation at Fredensborg Castle. Some of her planned engagements for the next month or two will be cancelled, others taken over by Prince Henrik og CP Frederik.

Here is my translation of the press release from the Royal Danish Court on Her Majesty The Queen's operation:

Her Majesty The Queen Has Undergone Surgery


Amalienborg, June 1st 2006

Her Majesty The Queen underwent surgery this morning on Thursday the 1st of June at the knee surgical sector, Orthopaedic-surgical ward E, Århus Hospital.

The operation was conducted by consultant Anders Odgaard, M.D., and an artificial knee joint was inserted. The operation was successful and lasted an hour.

It is expected that Her Majesty The Queen will be able to be discharged within a week’s time, whereupon The Queen will take up residence at Fredensborg Castle.

In the light of the operation, some of The Queen’s scheduled engagements within the next 1-2 months will be cancelled. Others will be carried through with the participation of His Royal Highness The Prince Consort or His Royal Highness The Crown Prince.

A press conference about the operation with consultant Anders Odgaard, M.D., and the team of doctors is convened at Århus Hospital, Tage-Hansens Gade, today at 14.30. The press conference will take place in the hospital’s hotel.

I know that'sjust only few days after Margrethe's surgery but any news about her?

Btw, I think that if something will be on June 11 that probably only inside family.

Since she's still in hospital, there probably wont be a lot of news about this- I'm sure she's fine though, and being well looked after. But a knee replacment will still mean a lot of rest in needed. I know when I had 4 impacted wisdom teeth they had to be taken out in surgery which meant aneasthetic- and that alone makes you sleeeeeep so much! :)

Yesterday, there was a somewhat gossipy bit on the internet for BT I think it was (a tabloid newspaper in DK) about QMII still being in hospital - and at a hospital where smoking is stricktly forbidden everywhere. Some of the employees were quoted as saying that in case the urge for cigarettes became too strong, some newspaper here might perhaps be lucky and get a picture of QMII standing on a remote staircase somewhere at the hospital and just inhale her cigarettes before she was discovered

That is such a powerful addiction, I quit 14 months ago and am so pleased. It's a bit sad for a woman her age because it can't possibly be easy to quit, and sadly she has such a wonderful personality and artistic style but such a frighteningly discolored smile.

check the microwave counter at the local store in Fredensborg :p

if it's emptied the day before the 11th then we know they are throwing a biiiiiiig party.

userdane > i don't think anyone can or will deny the Queen to smoke in bed if she wants to. i just sincerely hope she uses this week to give it a serious try to quit. the healing process would benefit a lot.

i also hope her knee operation turns out well. i know a lady who suffered from a bad knee for several years and, after more operations, still has problems. And she was surgered in Århus.

Thumbs up

I'm glad Her Majesty came through the operation okay, but I'm sure her chain smoking habit will affect her recovery somewhat. Nurse friends of mine say smokers' bones tend not to heal up as fast as non-smokers. But the knee replacement will probably make a world of difference in how Margrethe feels pain-wise.

According to TV2, the Press Secretary of the Royal Danish Court, Mrs. Lis M. Frederiksen, says that Her Majesty's rehabilitation is going as planned. If all goes well, Her Majesty will be discharged within the week. Furthermore, Mrs. Frederiksen informs that Her Majesty is retraining her knee in the long hallways and on the many stairs of the hospital.

Well I am glad the surgery went well for the queen. This means however that we may see more of the crown prince and princess at official functions.
