How can prince Henrik senior be dressed like this ? He was such a handsome French Diplomate when he married.
The only think I like is that he seems to be a really wonderful grandfather.

Thanks for the pics, Polyesco

You misunderstand, Maria-Olivia, the problem is not that Prince Henrik is maturing like a good wine - becoming rounder and more full.
It's his closet. It's a wellknown fact that darkness causes clothes to shrink. I know it from my own closet. It's true...

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #52, 2012.
Sig det ikke til min kone - Don't tell my wife.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

Looking very colorful Prince Henrik had his annual Christmas Lunch with a number of friends at a French restaurant in Copenhagen last week.
When leaving the restairant his put his arms around the shoulders of two of his friends, Henriette Zobel and Kirsten Schrøder, posed and said: "Don't tell my wife that I'm having lunch with other/strange ladies".
This annual Christmas lunch has taken place for 30 years and Kirsten Schrøder said about Prince Henrik: "Prince Henrik is unique. He's always there when you need him, whether in connection will illness or as back when I lost my husband and became a widow. You simply cannot praise Prince Henrik enough".

- It's not the first time a merry Prince Henrik has cracked something like that. Do you remember a few years ago, when he presented one of QMII's LiWs as his mistress?
Or when he and his friends are being entertained by the "ladies of ill repute" at Bakken. They are actually professional singers nowadays.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #1, 2013.
Spar to i hatten - Two of ace in the hat.
Written by our man on the spot, Ulrik Ulriksen.

As is tradition the Regent Couple and a number of friends take turn hosting the New Year party, this year Jesper and Birthe Rasmussen, living north of Copenhagen were the hosts.
The Regent Couple arrived as the last ones as is costum. And as is also tradtion they all dress up. The theme this year was playing cards, so QMII showed up in a black robe with a hat decorated by a big two of ace.

QMII just finished delivering her annual New Year speech live on TV by 18.15, before it was time to dress and drive to the party.
Among the other guests were Susanne and Peter Heering, Bente Scavenius and Joen Bille, Bent Fabricius Bjerre and Camilla Arndt, Birgitte and Kjeld Hillingsøe, Anne Rosenørn Lehn and Frederik Juel Brockdorf. - You may recognice some of the names, since some of their children are also close friends of M&F.

At midnight the menfolks in particular (that's also tradition) mill out in order to set off rockets that would impress any artilleryman! As one the guests put it: "We're mad about shooting".

Thanks FasterB & Iceflower

But this calls for an explanation. What are these carpets/rugs/blankets?
What is their purpose?

A link to a video, where you can see the new textiles. It´s three "antepedier" (I don´t know the english word for it), but it´s the textile hanging on the altar.
Then it´s the carpet between the altar and the "bench" where you lay during communion and then the carpet from the altar and down the aisle :)

Thanks, FasterB

But do they have a function, these antepedier? A symbolic meaning of some sort?
I ask because I'm pretty ignorant in this respect. It's not every year I go inside a church, let alone attend a service.

I think the only thing is that these antependier is to make the altar look beautiful. I completely forgot to ask my mother or actually it will be my father, I think (the customers kept calling me during work )

The webpage of the DRF has a better photo of the green antependium :)

There will be various colors of antependia (or paraments as we call them in the US) during the different seasons of the church year. There is green which is on for most of the year, white for Christmas and Easter, red for Pentecost, and purple for Advent, so there is a significance to the colors.
