Cool

Both women looked lovely and it is a pity that more members of the Royal Family were unable to attend.

Yes. I thought in events such as these, more members of the DRF attend - not even Prince Henrik was there as the Queen's consort. Maybe because it was an official visit and not a full state visit?

Correct.

The Danish government, represented by the Danish Prime Minister, hosted the Irish President during this official visit.
The Irish President is however according to the diplomatic protocol obliged to drop by QMII to say hi. And as he is head of state he can expect to be treated to more than a cup of coffee and a bisquit.

At a state visit, the Danish head of state, i.e. QMII is the host.

In short: Official visit = work visit, dealing mainly with the relations
between two governments.
There is a lot more emphasis on politics and business during an official visit.

State visit = all flags flying, focusing on cementing or improving the relations between two countries.
The head of state act as a front figure, while the business part is kept in the background.

Today, October 13, Queen Margrethe has visited the Arthritis Association's Center for
Weight and Health - Arthritis Hospital in Skælskør. According to the article below she
did so for several reasons: the Queen is patron of the Arthritis Foundation, the Arthritis
Society still had a present for her 70th birthday, Margrethe had to hand over the Queen
Ingrid's Research Prize and had not yet seen the centre's major rebuilding and extension
and as the site had celebrated it's 75 birthday last year, but had been under construction
at that time, that had also to be celebrated. So a full programme

Things are a bit quiet in BB this week, so let me end with summaries of two articles from Billed Bladet #41, 2010.

Til middag hos Dronningen - To dinner with the Queen.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

Both the Irish President, Mary McAleese, and the Mongolian President, Bolormaa Khajidsuren have been on official visits lately. As such they were the guest of the Danish government, rather than guests of the Danish Monarch as is the case with state visits.

The Mongolian President has visited DK before and he had lunch with QMII and Prince Henrik. Alas, the President's wife had to return home as her father died. Bolormaa Khajidsuren has an interesting background as he is a university graduate, while his eight brothers are goat sheperds. - I guess the family could only afford one of them to attend university.

As the diplomatic protocol dictates, a visiting head of state must also greet the head of state of the country he/she is visiting. Not doing so would be an insult. And while doing so the visiting head of state is treated to a lunch, an official, but still fairly low key dinner or at the very least a cup of coffee.
The Irish President was treated to an Irish inspired first course, deer and Napoleon cookies (too sweet and fattening for me).

I mudder til knæene - In mud to the knees.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

It's no secret that QMII is very interested in archaeology, - to put it mildly. (*) So it was a delighted Queen who opened an exhibition at the National Museum about her and her interest for archaeology.
It was actually her nanny who opened her eyes for archaeology and Margrethe was twelve when she first took part in an excavation - and she was hooked! It was a wet and muddy afternoon and she loved it!
Her grandfather (morfar), the Swedish King Gustav VI Adolf, took her out to a number of excavation and they were memorable times of her life.
She later studied archaelogy in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Cambridge.
She hasn't had opportunities to take part in excavations for years, but that didn't prevent her from basically throwing herself down on her belly, to have a closer look at some runes at a dig on the island of Bornholm.

At the exhibition it will be QMII's voice you will hear talk about excavations, finds, experiences and so on.

(*) She has stated more than once that if she hadn't become Queen, she would have become an archaelogist.

Summary of article in Jyllands Posten.
Dronningen besøgte sårede soldater - The Queen visited wounded soldiers.
http://jp.dk/indland/article2222156.ece

Queen Margrethe went to Rigshospitalet (presumably Friday forenoon) and visited the Danish soldiers undergoing treatment there. (*)
She had requested that no press and no photographers were present nor had the soldiers been informed in advance.
QMII talked with the soldiers (**) and saw how they went through physiotheraphy and also how the surgical appliance makers fitted artificial limbs for some of the soldiers.
She also met doctor Finn Warburg, a consultant doctor and orthopaedist surgeon. He has actually retired but a special position for him has been created at Rigshospitalet and when a severely injured soldiers is flown home to Denmark he is on call as he is the perhaps most experienced surgeon in his field in DK.

Later she drove to Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, where a new veterans home has been opened. Here she talked to some of those who will work as volunteers here.
- In recognition of the fact that Denmark is having and will have even more ex-soldiers in the future, who are suffering from what can be compared to "Vietnam veterans syndroms" veterans homes have been opened in various places in DK. Here soldiers can go, and stay if need be, if they feel it's just too much, need someone to talk to, who really understand them or just to be with other veterans.
There has fortunately been established a genuine psycological post-mission screening procedure and offers of psycological aide. Something those of us who served in Balkans and later those who served in Iraq did not have. When we were discharged from service, we were basically on our own, so that's a good thing.

Today Saturday, another Danish soldier was killed in Afghanistan. From the Royal Life Guard Regiment.

(*) All Danish soldiers wounded or injured while serving overseas are flown back to Denmark where they will undergo specialised treatment at Rigshospitalet. Some are so badly injured or have lost limbs that a long stay and artificial limbs are necessary.
The speed and degree of recovery have astounded doctors. The soldiers are fit and in possession of a high degree of motivation. That combined with recieveing treatment with other soldiers, who offer support, has had a very positive impact on the recovery process.

(**) Many of those wounded are from the Royal Life Guard Regiment as that regiment is a combat regiment.

Thank you, Iceflower

Here is a BT gallery from Prince Henrik's hunt in central Jutland. Prins Henrik på kongejagt - og denne gang i fornuftige sko | www.bt.dk

It sure looks like a meeting in the ol' boys club.

Speaking of Roskilde Cathedral - and I hope this isn't considered too morbid:

I visited the cathedral about 14 days ago and saw the exhibition of the tomb which will be the queen's and prince Henrik's final resting place.

It will be in the chapel of sct. Birgitte and the tomb will look like this: Dronning Margrethes gravmæle kan ses i Roskilde Domkirke - Roskilde Avis

There was a model and some information about it: it is made by Bjørn Nørgaard (no doubt with substantial input from the queen ), the artist behind the tapestries which can be seen at Christiansborg Palace and which the queen received as a gift for her 50th birthday. The tomb will be made of sandblown glass carried on three pillars which will be made of stone from Greenland, the Faroe Islands and the island of Bornholm, respectively. Each pillar will be decorated with the silver head of an elephant.

According to the information at the cathedral, the work on the tomb will take approx. 4 years.
My family and I disagreed whether the intention is for the royals to be laid to rest inside the tomb itself or in the ground in the chapel with the tomb marking the place.

Sorry in advance if this information has already been given.

Thank you, UserDane

The Regent Couple, QMII & PH are supposed to be laid to rest inside the cathedral.

The Regent Couple attended a service in Roskilde Cathedral today.

The cathedral is undergoing a major renovation and today Kongeporten = the Royal Gate/portal to the cathedral was unveiled.

Notide that QMII is again wearing her Tele Tubby outfit.

For the Danish members:

http://vip.tv2.dk/article.php/id-34702953:...-dreng.html?rss

Queen Margrethe has been interviewed by the magazine Ud & Se. I don't expect to be travelling by train or go near a train station or DSB kiosk for some time, can someone find the latest issue of Ud & Se and tell us if she says something interesting?
