Apparently Prince Henrik is having some problems with his wine and he had to take many bottles back from the stores in Denmark. There was a mistake made with the korks of the bottles of red wine from Chateau Caix 1999. The problem is that the korks don´t do of as they were too long! The bottles were sent back to France where they will be re-bottled.

I was surprised to find that the Queen's new year's speach was better than ever this year.

She touched so many delicate subjects with her firm, yet gentle voice; like the power of materialism and development and our responsibility for those not included to the party, the climate change and our personal responsibility for it, and she welcomed all foreigners to Denmark. She also kind of touched the battles on the streets of Copenhagen between youngsters and the police in the spring. Her mimique at approx. 2.40 - 2.50 into the speech is priceless.

Plus the usual greetings to the army, the Foroyar Islands and Greenland. She mentioned princess Isabella and Marie Cavallier by name.

I suspect she has a new ghost writer at the chancellor's office. The ''bridges'' between subjects, and the vivid imaginative descriptions, were brilliant.

40% of the Danes watch the speach live on TV on Dec 31st.

Prince Henrik is interviewed in this week's edition of Billedbladet. Here are some highlights:

* He talks about his wine production, and how the funding of the wine is done by him, by money he inherited from his father. The winery goes well, both production-wise and financially.

* He could imagine retiring, and have more time to do things for himself. He feels more tired, and have started down-sizing his protectorates some, by giving 10% of them to the younger generation. He does, however, believe that the monarch should sit on the throne as long as they live. Born a king/queen, die a king/queen.

* Not surprisingly - we don't know everything that goes on behind the palace walls - he mentions that he has loads of meetings that the press isn't informed about.

* He has talked with his children about taking over at Cayx, but they say that it is his domain. (Joachim seems to be an obvious choice to take it over, and they've talked about it, but not decided anything).

* He doesn't smoke - and haven't done so for 12 years.

* He doesn't think it is as difficult for Mary and Marie to get into the royal family as it is to get into a new country with a different culture. But they have to get used to less freedom, with longer work days (eight in the morning to midnight, frequently).

* He has never contemplated divorce, as he sees divorce as the ultimate failure. He and the Queen tried talking Prince Joachim out of the divorce with Alexandra.

...I had to read this one twice... well, at least we can't say the Prince is overly diplomatic, especially considering he is a former diplomat....

Queen Margrethe took a quick trip to Stavanger, before heading to Oslo for the opening of the opera there. In Stavanger, she attended the opening of the exhibition "Slaget. Ryger på Hærferd. (The Battle. Ryger at war) at the Stavanger archeological museum.

The exhibition covers material from Denmark and Norway which shows how the Ryger (people from the area of Rogaland) travelled to Denmark for the purpose of war. The Queen noted that the exhibition shows the close relationship that is and has been between Denmark and Norway.
