The sarcophaghes will be be places in St. Birgitte's Chapel inside Roskilde Domkirke. the Chapel is next to the Glücksborg Chapel whre the sarcophages of King Christian IX. and Queen Louise, King Frederik VIII and Queen Lovia, King Christian X. and Queen Alexandrine are.
The sarcophages are designed by Bjorn Noorgaard who among others also made the tapestries who are hanging at the Riddersaal of Christansborg Castle.

Even though this is probably a fairly standard procedure for royals, I really did not want to see that! Sure, it's important to be prepared for death, but I wish this could've been kept private. This way, for me, it feels like a funeral is just around the corner! Makes me uneasy and sad!

Well, I am glad that thing seem to be well prepared. And the fact is that the sarcophagus takes about 6-7 years to make, so I don't think anyone expects their deaths to be an iminent threat...

I agree that while it's probably the normal thing to do for royalty, it is a little morbid.

It takes 6-7 years to make a royal sarcophagus? What happens if a young royal dies unexpectedly - for instance, what if Fred or Mary dropped dead of an undetected brain tumor tomorrow? I'm assuming there's no sarcophagus ready for either of them.

Interesting to say the least.
Were Queen Ingrid and King Frederik IX not buried in Glücksborg Chapel?
And are any other royals buried in sarcophargus'?

Actually, some sarcophagus have only been completed after the persons have died. Apparently, the sarcophagus for Frederik IX was completed long after he was buried.

The gracestone shows and anchor. But the Octagon was only build after the death of King Frederik IX. and was only ready in 1985. Before it was ready the coffin of the King was standing inside the Glücksborg Chapel.

What order has the painter placed on Margrethe, UserDane? It looks like the Norwegian Order of St Olav. Or is it another Danish order that I'm not aware of?

Ups, you got me there - I'm not very good at distinguishing orders I'm afraid.
I haven't found any information about it online. The only things I found was that the painter has chosen to depict the queen as a painter herself and that she is standing in the garden of Vallø Stift - of which the queen is a protector.

You can see Vallø Stift here - Vallø Stift - established in 1737, it was initially a non-profit organisation aiming at supporting unmarried noble women and work as a charitable organisation locally. Since 1976 when the terms of the trust were changed, it is solely a charitable organisation.

No problemo, sweetheart. And thank you for the added information regarding Vallø Stift.

Perhaps the order is a Commonwealth one? Maybe someone 'here' will be able to enlighten us both on the matter.

As always, thank you for posting

Perish the thought. Anyways, I doubt they would get one, having not been sole regents. And at any case, it probably would happen later. This is not something for the funeral, but for the memory...

Antonieta, I agree. (Ha, I'm coming across as sooo negative in this thread, sorry, everyone!)
I'm not sure it's the lack of her smile, but rather the figure on the portrait lacks QM's "presence" or regality or so. Margrethe is every inch a Queen (The Queen), but here, it seems as if some woman had just played dress-up. Apart from that, I don't think that her face looks a lot like Margrethe's.
Ah well, I don't know too much about art and have no idea about the intention of the artist, but that's my opinion :)
I did very much enjoy this pic of QM: http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/6898/12048201.jpg
Thanks for posting it, dazzling!

in the Norwegian wilderness and stays at Gausdal not far from
Lillehammer.

I don't know if she goes skiing to Norway annually, but there have often been pictures of Queen Margrethe and Queen Sonja doing country cross skiing trips in Norway together in the past. Too bad the Norwegian Queen is in Vancouver currently. Maybe we would have seen them together otherwise.
