That is correct: Prince Christian of Schaumburg-Lippe (the son of Princess Louise of Denmark, who was the younger sister of King Christian X, and Prince Frederick of Schaumburg-Lippe) married his first cousin, Princess Feodora of Denmark (daughter of Prince Harald of Denmark and Princess Helena Adelaide of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg) in 1937: both were King Frederick's grandchildren.
Prince Wilhelm of Schaumburg-Lippe is their eldest son.


Queen Margrethe appears to be rather close to members of her extended family.

Prince Henrik cuts short engagement!

Earlier today Prince Henrik disappointed his hosts of the Aabenraa Rifle Club, by cutting short an engagement he had consented to a long time ago.

The Rifle Club is celebrating its 275th anniversary today, and honorary member Prince Henrik had agreed to join the parade, the lunch and a shooting afterwards. A total of four hours.

Shortly before his arrival Prince Henrik advised that he would have to cut short his visit, as he had "no time to stay for lunch." He stayed for half an hour!

It goes without saying that the chairman of the Rifle Club was extremely disappointed; in fact he did not even try to hide it!

I am also disappointed{Comments edited}. He wasn't ill, there is no excuse. This happened in one of the most DRF loyal places in the Kingdom of Denmark.

I'm sure Henrik had a good reason to cut the engagement. He left his grandsons christening early yesterday aswell, so there might be something up with His Royal Highness.

Hope he's not ill and needs to watch his activities...or how long they take.

Maybe he's just tired from all of the activity yesterday. He was also the first guest to leave the christening party.

Here's the article that talks about him leaving the party yesterday:
Prins Henrik tog tidligt hjem - Royale - BT.dk

He is 75 years old, and maybe it is difficult for him to keep such an active schedule.

Cutting short an engagement wouldn't necessarily be odd in itself, nor would leaving the christening earlier than everyone else, but Henrik cutting the engagement, Henrik being the first to leave the christening of a grandchild named after him, AND Margrethe cancelling the press conference all add up to something being weird somewhere.

I think this is strange and odd behaviour. Cutting short an engagement and missing the Luncheon was very rude and offensive to the people who had surely put a lot of time and effort into organising the engagement

I think we shouldn’t rush to make judgements until we have more information.
There may be a lot of reasons behind Prince Henrik's actions, and knowing him, they must be serious ones too: it is not common for the Prince to cut short engagements, cancel interviews and especially leave christening ceremony of his grandchild soon (and he's a really doting grandfather to all his grandchildren).

I only hope that the reasons are not connected to any health issues.

There is something strange again in the Royal Court of Danemark.
If Prince Henrik consort was not feeling well at Prince Henrik's(easy) christening , he should have said immediately that he was not able to stay at the whole celebraton (4 hours) , but cutting short a celebration where he was the most important person and cancelling on the same day the Caix's annual interview is particular for the Danish house.
At Prince Willem Alexander, Crown Prince of the Nederlands's wedding , Prince Henrik was not there he was alone in Caix, because he did not agree his n° 3 place.
At Prince Frederick, Crown Prince of Danemark's wedding ,Alexandra and Joachim were smiling as usual and an few days later it was their divorce announcement.
In the Christening thread I spoke about Alexandra and Joachim's new life as a H.C. Andersen's fairy tale , now I change my mind concerning the Dane's royal smiles..

I have to agree with the other posters who said that cutting the engagement so short was a bit rude. If I had organised the event I would of course be disappointed that the Prince Consort had only made the most brief of appearances.

Can anyone tell me what press conference the Queen cancelled?

It certainly is!

Danish royalty pundits are speculating that the regal couple don't want to risk any questions in the wake of the change of the succession law. Perhaps you remember, that the lead-up to the referendum triggered a hefty debate on the monarchy. It revealed that the support for the DRF is in decline. It's not serious- yet, but enough for them to be concerned!

I hope that other Danish posters offer their take on the cancellation!

Thanks for the pics, queenofthelight

There were two queens attending the opening, the Queen of Bhutan,
Ashi Sangay Wangchuk Chods, also attended but I wasn't able to
find a pic of her. The new museum is a foundation of the pharmaceutical
entrepreneur Frederik Paulsen. His collection includes over 480 works by
Dutch, Scandinavian and German artists to the sea and coastline. The
first exhibition presents 250 paintings, for example by Emil Nolde, Max
Liebermann, Hendrik Willem Mesdag and Edvard Munch.

Prince Henrik took a visit to Sardinia a few days after the christening of his newest grandson, little Prince Henrik:
Ekstra Bladet - Prins Henriks fede ferie

The article says that the rest of his family stayed behind in Denmark during this visit. He was on a luxury boat when this photo was taken. There is no mention of where he stayed, or whom he was with during this vacation.
