Well, now I had to go look for them again, and have a giggle. It's from Grasten Slot, in August 2009. Here is one link:

Celebrity Baby Update: Princess Isabella's Balloon Fun

Mary looks just great in that ensemble - perfect selection of class and comfort.

I don't think that was an official photo shoot.
The only one this year, were the pictures taken at the start of the year.

Sigh. They ARE cute kids.

I suppose I considered the August shoot as something at least semi-official, as the family was dressed in variations of the red and white of Denmark and I would thnk the photogs would have been invited.

But no word on the Christmas card? I know I never saw the one for the Royal House or Royal Family for last year, either.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik attend an ecumenical celebration in
the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Sunday, Dec. 13, 2009.

Shortly after the service Denmark's churches rang their bells 350 times
which was the central act of a worldwide international bell ringing initiative.
The bell ringing symbolizes the 350 parts per million that mark the safe
upper limit for carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere according to
scientists.

I would love to know what she is saying - obviously she is talking at one point about archaeology. The Queen has a very gentle-sounding voice.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik attended - as every year -
a private New Year's Party with friends, this year the theme
was "Venice", the following article link from billed-bladet includes
two pics:

Sådan var dronningen klædt ud til nytår
(How the Queen was dressed for New Year)

I'm not whether this is the correct thread to ask this question but...I read in one of the Australian woman's magazines that Queen Margrethe will be retiring as Queen in May 2010. Is this likely to happen? Or is this just another attempt at a second rate magazine to sell more copies?

Simply speculation on behalf of the magazine. Nothing has been stated as such by the Royal Court, and I doubt the Queen would abdicate anyway.

This should probably go in current events, but I'm not a mod. I personally think this is HIGHLY unlikely. Margrethe has stated in the past that she views the job as a job for life and that she will stay on the throne til she falls off. Unless something's drastically changed, and we don't have any hard evidence that it has, there's no reason for her to suddenly abdicate. However, it probably does sell papers (especially in Australia, where they can focus on the fact that this will make the Tasmanian Mary Queen.)

The trailer was great and it looks as if it will be a fascinating film about Queen Margrethe. It is always a regret for me that I shall never know or understand my own monarch (Queen Elizabeth) in such a personal and real way as this film portrays.

Thanks for your response. I don't understand though why the topic of Tasmania came up.

If Margrethe abdicates, Mary a Tasmanian will become Queen. Just as the wedding did, that will cause quite a few celebrations.

Remember that Mary is often seen as 'our Mary' as she was born and raised here so anything about her will sell and the No Idea or Woman's Drivel are very good at making up stories but then again two years ago No Idea was right in their January edition about where Prince Harry was and no one else reported it for another two months so...

When she does become Queen Consort of Denmark the Australian press will go into overdrive about 'our Queen Mary' totally insulting the woman who truly is our Queen - Elizabeth II.

Billed-Bladet is reporting that Prince Henrik has gotten rid of his cane:

Billed-Bladet - Prins Henrik har smidt stokken

The article states that he has been doing rehabilitative exercises. They have helped him to improve so much that he no longer needs the cane he has been using since July 2008.

Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities,
and Prince Henrik cut a ribbon during the opening ceremony
of the Children's Museum, a new section of the Egyptian
Museum, in Cairo on January 18, 2009.

Was there any specific reason why Henrik went to Cairo?
Wonderful pictures.

Well, as you can see for example in the second pic I've posted,
the exhibition of the children's museum on the ancient Egyptian
culture and civilization features LEGO models representing Egyptian
antiquities. LEGO is a Danish company, so I would say they asked
for a special representative from Denmark

Iceflower, P.Henrik doesnt represent or is patron of LEGO or anything, correct?
Its just interesting that they choose someone quite high to represent.
