Smile A Roman visit with Queen Margrethe

I had the privilege to visit the show dedicated to the Italian painter Antonello da Messina in Roma, on May 18, 2006 at the same time that Queen Margrethe was visiting the same museum, the Scuderie Reali at the Quirinale. She was surrounded by many body guards, and accompanied by two nice ladies and a professor who explained to her the paintings, while I was able to follow on her steps and be left to enjoy the visit at the same time she was enjoying it. What a elegant and lovely lady she is !

The caption on the royal site under the photo posted above states " a photo of the now replaced knee". In other words - the photo was taken before the knee replacement.

It sure does. I apologise for having misread the caption and thus misled you all! Nonetheless, it sounds as if Her Majesty is healing well and quickly!

On 11 June, the Prince Consort celebrated his birthday at the Danish Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand, were he has been recently to attend the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of King Bhumibol. At the party, Henrik took the opportunity to comment on his wife, Queen Margrethe, and her current health condition:

She is in good spirit, but it will take some time before she is fully recovered"

The reception was hosted by HE the Ambassador of Denmark to Thailand, Mr Ulrik Helweg-Larsen and his wife.

I remember seeing that picture thinking how well she looks and I thought she might need to use a cane to walk for a little why, but then though I must be thinking of regular people, not superwoman! :) but obviously the fact she's left hospital and is fine mean she's healing well enough that the octors are satisfied with that. So a belated Happy Birthday to Prince Henrik and a congratulations of 39 years to the both of them! :)

Some really sweet news:

http://www.billed-bladet.dk/default....ails&Item=4086

According to Billed-Bladet the Queen will receive a late birthday present from her husband next week.

Ever since her 12-year-old dog Celimene died last December she has longed for a new dog.

It's a puppy from the same place as prince Henrik's dog Evita. It wasn't yet born on April 16th, so that's why the Queen have had to wait. The Queen gets to pick from four puppies.

Guess the race ?? Dachshund of course ....

To some extent I find it a little peculiar that both of them need their own, personal dog. It suggests to me that the prince consort didn't like the competition from the Queen for the dog's attention. Maybe Evita finds it cosier in the Queen's chambers, and Henrik desperately wants her back ??

Many families have more than one dog. If you have very different schedules it makes sense to have your own dog if they spend a lot of time with you.

You are probably right. I would want my own dog.

It also makes sense to give the dog a companion. I for one (as the owner of two nine year old brother-cats) wouldn't want to keep just one pet. They really get a lot of fun of each other.

Margrethe at work, on crutches.

Queen Margrethe had to support herself on the crutches, when she went up to the stage to sit on the chair.

by TINA KRONGAARD STAMPE

Queen Margrethe had to sit when she handed over "the Queen's watch", to a member of the Queen's guards, at the lawn in front of Rosenborg Castle, Friday.

A little more than three weeks after Queen Margrethe received a new knee at Aarhus Hospital, the majesty was back at work today.

But she is clearly not in top form yet, and therefore had to support herself on a pair of crutches when she met up at the Queen's guards' barracks at Rosenborg Castle to give out "the queen's watch."

The watch was awarded this time to guard KrŠn Vodder Nielsen from Ribe, who was chosen by his friends in the guard. He received the watch and a handshake from a - because of the weak knee - sitting Queen.

How proud it makes me feel to see my sovereign, HM Queen Margrethe II, doing her job even is she has to do so with crutches. Her Majesty looks great and well.

Is it normal for someone to be working three weeks after having knee replacement surgery?

The doctors said (they were interviewed in Billed Bladet around the time of the surgery) that it was the best for movement in the knee if the patient was out of bed only hours after the surgery, so that the knee didn't stiffen. I'm not sure about going back to work, but this is one event that probably wouldn't take much time, even if it looks like it takes a lot of effort. Probably why this event was chosen as one to ease back into work, and not one where she would have to stand around for several hours.

According to BT, the Danish tabloid newspaper, prince Henrik is now also having health troubles of his own (http://www.bt.dk/royalt/artikel:aid=451012/). During his stay at Malta, he wounded his leg and the wound will not heal so he has been ordered to rest for a couple of weeks while his leg is being treated

It's good that Prince Joachim steps up to take care of his father's engagements in that time.

They sure did, and thank you for posting the photo fanletizia. And as Her Majesty was about to get in the backseat of one of the royal limousines, a reporter had the audacity to yell at Her Majesty and ask her: "How is the knee coming along?", Her Majesty replied, unusually friendly, that it was coming along "fantastically". Normally, Her Majesty desists from answering reporters in this fashion, but I guess she used the opportunity to let her people know that she is doing very well. I, for one, was pleased to hear it anyway!
