Several European newspapers are running stories about a poll of Danish citizens who want Margrethe to abdicate on her 70th birthday. The paper also say that the Queen does not want to abdicate.

Any news?

Renata, I heard that, too! Apparently, it was a poll by Capacent-Institute for Danmarks Radio; they asked 1000 people. But it doesn't say whom they asked and what the exact question was, so until a detailed survey is published, I don't believe any of it!

Queen Margrethe was supposed to have opened an exhibition of the Danish painter Christian Købke, "Christian Købke, Danish master of Light" at the National Gallery in London but has had to cancel because she has caught the flu - according to Kongehuset.dk - Kongehuset

Oh no! I hope that she gets well very soon. Was she already in London when she became ill, or was she still at home? Hopefully, she is at home where she'll be more comfortable.

I hope she's in Denmark, too - there's nothing worse than being sick away from home! I got really sick on a trip to Washington several years ago, and it was so miserable.

At the Scandinavian Royal Messages Board, Stig has posted a reply that apparently queen Margrethe had already left for London and that her speech was instead delivered by the Danish ambassador (The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: Re: Queen Margrethe cancels)

Book says Queen was a pipe pilferer

Queen Margrethe, in her younger days, used to dig up old clay pipes in London’s Hyde Park without the permission of the authorities, it has been alleged. The pipes, which she unearthed in rose gardens within the royal park, were brought back to Denmark.

The revelation has come to light in a new book ‘Queen Margrethe and archaeology’ in which Count Jorgen Ahlefeldt-Laurvig recalls a time he spend with the young queen in the 1960s. The count tells of how he and the Queen scaled a fence to get at the rose beds where the clay pipes, thought to be from the 1500s, were buried.

Considering what young royals get into now, I love how THAT's her moment of youthful indiscretion!

I guess she's a more avid smoker than we imagined! :-)

On Thursday night, the Queen and Prince Regent will be welcomed to Fredensborg, where they typically spend the spring and summer. The townspeople will welcome them with a torchlight parade, and the local mayor will greet them.

Apparently, the programme 'The Queen's Denmark" which has just been on TV on occasion of the queen's upcoming 70th is online now, and Martin C at the Scandinavian Royals Message Board has posted a link to it - The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: It seems that the program is now online

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik recently attended the 75th birthday celebrations of Flemming von Lüttichau, who was one of the court chamberlains up until a few years ago. Flemming and his wife Lena are also close friends of the Regent Couple.

Prince Henrik opened an exhibition at the Jylland Frigate, of which he has been patron of since 1979.

Summary of a note in Billed Bladet #14, 2010.
Prins Henrik svingede sabelen - Prince Henrik brandished the sabre.

This time PH opened an exhibition on how the sailors lived on the gundecks of the frigate Jylland, a mid 1800's Danish warship.

For anyone interested in naval history and in particular the transition period in the latter half of the 1800's, the Firgate Jylland is a must. There is incidentally a lighthouse ship moored very close to her.
Jylland (ship) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The town of Ebeltoft is also worth a visit. It's almost an open air museum and it still looks like a sleepy merchant town anno 1750-1850.
But come early, once the tourist arrive in the forenoon you can hardly see anything.
Ebeltoft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Located less than half an hour by car from where we live, we visit Fregatten Jylland = the frigate Jutland every year.
It's extremely interesting.
The frigate served for a period as the admiral/royal ship of the navy. She proved herself well in a battle during the Second Schlesvigan War in 1864, beating up a combined Preussian/Austrian squadron before a British frigate, for whatever reason, sailed in between the warring ships and interrupted the fight.
She was outfitted and set sail every summer. But once she had left port it was down with the chimney and up with the sails. This is a ship and not a machine!
The able seamen who worked in the rigging only came down on the deck when they had to, or if the weather was bad. Otherwise they slept in their hammocks in the rigging. They also relieved themselves at the end of the yardarms.
No need to sleep on the drafty gundecks - and there were fewer NCO's to bother them in the masts.
The heads right under the bowsprit were divded into two, each consisting of three holes down to the sea. To the one side the seamen relieved themselves, to the other side the NCO's and the boys went. That was meant to protect the boys from the lewd talk of the seamen.
The cannons are a mix of heavy smoothbores and rifled breachloaders, hyper modern cannons at the time. Armstrongs, I believe.
Yes, I could on....

Does someone know of the Queen and Danish Prime Minister were able to fly to Poland?
It seems that Copenhagen airport is still closed
cph.dk - Københavns Lufthavne

ETA: Acoording the Royal House site, the trip has been cancelled due the airspace conditions. The Queen met with the Polish ambassador in Fredesnborg at 3:00pm

Quote:
H.M. Dronningens og Udensrigsministerens deltagelse i begravelsesceremonien i Krakow for den polske præsident Lech Kaczynski og hustru er aflyst på grund af flysituationen. H.M. Dronningen modtager den polske ambassadør i audiens på Fredensborg Slot kl. 15.00

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik went on board of the royal
Yacht Dannebrog today, May 7. To mark the beginning of the
royal ship season they inspected the ship's crew and had lunch
on board. They should have sailed by barge from Dannebrog into
the port of Snekkersten, but it's been said to be too dangerous
as to the waves.

Here's the article about it with several pics:
