Lithuania's President Valdas Adamkus (R), Denmark's Queen Margrethe (C) and Lithuania's First Lady Alma Adamkiene pose for photographers during celebrations marking Lithuania's millennium anniversary in Vilnius on July 6, 2009. The Baltic nation of Lithuania is bracing for a nationwide party as it prepares to mark its symbolic 1,000th birthday and give itself some respite from a daily fare of economic crisis headlines.

Prince Henrik made a visit to an herbal company, where he ate dried lice.

Prins Henrik spiste tørrede lus - Royale - BT.dk

He saw the company's production area, looked at dried blueberries and birch bark. The prince consort stated that he has always been very interested in herbs, ever since he was a child. He has herb gardens at Chateau Cayx and Fredensborg. The press were given spoonfuls of small black beads. They tasted them, and were told that they are lice. They are cochineal-lice, an insect that lives on cacti. Prince Henrik even tried some himself, and joked that he uses this in the kitchen.

Is the rug that Queen Margrethe has in her hands, made by the Queen herself? I know that she is very artistic and quite talented. Do you know if the Queen gave it to the exhibition for permanent display?

Queen Magrethe answers questions during a press conference in the
Pantomime Theater at the Tivoli amusement park, in Copenhagen,
Denmark, 15 July 2009 after the dress rehearsal of the ballet The
Swineherd based on a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

Queen Margrethe has designed the scenography and the costumes
of the ballet which plays until September with dancers from the US,
England, France, Spain, Portugal, Finland, Norway and Denmark. The
Swineherd is the fourth ballet at the Pantomime Theater since 2001
with the queen as scenographer.

Here's an article about the ballet "Swineherd". It talks about the costumes and scenery that Queen Margrethe has designed.

http://www.bt.dk/royale/dronningen-bag-ny-forestilling

She worked closely with the choreographer and the production crew when she was designing the costumes and scenery. The musical arranger for the ballet said that the Queen is on equal footing with everyone else on the crew. He said that one often forgot that it was the Queen they were talking with. They all saw her as another team member.

There will be a jewelry exhibition at Amalienborg Museum on August 15 featuring some of Queen Margrethe's jewelry from her private collection. The exhibition honors the work of jewelry company A. Michelsen. This company has been a favorite of the Danish royals through the years. There will also be rare jewelry featured that belongs to other collectors. One of the highlights is a daisy brooch that was created in honor of the Queen's birth (Daisy is the name that close friends and family call the Queen).

Yes, they are related.
Prince Christian's father, Prince Wilhelm of Schaumburg-Lippe is Queen Margrethe's cousin.

Prince Wilhelm is the great-grandson of King Frederick VIII of Denmark. He is not in the line of succession to the Danish Throne (as he is not descended from Christian X), however both he and his children are in the line of succession to the British Throne as descendants of George II of the UK through Princess Louise (Queen Louise of Norway and Denmark).
