Her Majesty's outfit looks similar to one Princess Alexandra owns. (or would that be the other way around? :) )

Til party med rødt øje: Sådan fester dronningen privat - 08.01.04

Først holdt hun tale for hele Danmark. Bagefter gik dronning Margrethe til nytårsfest i udklædning.

Maskering og udklædning passer perfekt til dronning Margrethes fantasi og kunstneriske færdigheder.

Efter nytårstalen i radio og TV går den stilsikkert klædte dronning med overraskende, ny frisure hvert år til sit lønkammer og finder remedierne frem til at lægge årets sidste maske – den, der er bestemt af temaet ved den fest, majestæten to timer efter årets manende ord, tager ud til sammen med de nærmeste venner.

Ved dette årsskifte var temaet bridge, kortspillet som Margrethe spiller for at hygge sig, og som prins Henrik spiller for at vinde.

well, Queen Margrethe really is on top when it comes to fashion. All I can say, very nice attire. I loved the make-up near her eyes!!! :)

Margrethe at Waldemarsudde Art Museum, Stockholm


The Spirit of the Landscape
Queen Margrethe II and Prince Eugen
Feb 7 - 23 May 2004

An active artist since the early 1970s HRH Queen Margrethe II of Denmark started out drawing, moving later to painting watercolours. Those of the latter genre inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings were much appreciated. She then shifted to nature studies and abstracts. Having been shown in Odense during the autumn 2003, the exhibition offers examples of her most recent landscape paintings, many of them based on vivid colour tones in blue and green. Her paintings are shown together with her own selection of Prince Eugen´s paintings. There is no doubt but that the Queen's Swedish background has had a significant influence on her artistry. Her maternal grandfather King Gustav VI Adolf encouraged her to develop an interest in art and archaeology. Fellow artist Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden was important to her and this exhibition has thrown a sharp light on her relationship with Prince Eugen.

Here's more on the Queen and her artistic influences:

Prince Henrik always has the funniest expressions on his face. I have never been able to figure out if he is incredibly stern or incredibly funny. Sometimes he looks like a fun person, sometimes he looks like a mean person. For awhile there I had my mind made up that I didn't like him, now I just don't know.

After the Queen woke up after the operation , Prince
Henrik was by her side and the operations is said to
have been successful but the Queen has to stay in the
hospital for another week. She celebrates her birthday on April 16.

So she has been in Sweden? Sofiero Slott is a swedish castle
Sofiero Slott is where her mother Queen Ingrid spent her childhood summers. It used to be the royal summer residence before Solliden. So maybe thats why she had her paintings there?
Queen Margarethe and King Carl Gustaf and Quenn Silvia met there a few years ago to. Can´t remember when tough...

Hi

I was just curious as to the pronunciation of the Queen of Denmarks name?

Is pronounced "Margareta" or "Margrete" or "Margaret (Like Princess Margaret of Britain)"

Hoping someone can help

In my opinion, when I see the spelling of her name and use the english way of prouncing words, i would prounce it Margare-th not Margaret or Margarete.

Hi

From that Danish News Link, it sounds like the reporter pronounces it like "Maargrater". This is actually how it was pronounced on a news program here in Australia. "Maargrater"

How hard was it for him to learn Danish compared to Mary? How much time did he take? And why did he speak in French at the wedding?
