Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik are at the Chateau de Cayx in France these days and posed for some pics on October 3. They attended the start of the grape harvests and participated in a shooting of a documentary about their castle and their wines. Margrethe and Henrik also celebrated the inauguration of their private museum with 4000 pieces of art.

I just watched the news and there was a segment about QMII inaugurating the newly renovated and now state of the art natural history museum Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus.
http://www.tv2oj.dk/artikel/229904:A...er-en-stor-dag

For those interesting in bog mummies and human pre-history, this is a must! I personally look very much forward to visiting the museum - and with a little bit of luck I might persude wife or children to come along.

Anyway here are a couple of pics of the main attraction: The Grauballe Man (WARNING: nudity).
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...llemanden2.jpg
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...allemanden.jpg
http://old.udkantsadam.dk/wp-content...ds/dag31_1.jpg

And this is how he is believed to have looked like: http://grauballekonen.dk/uf/0_9999/6...981c0fbe56.jpg

He's been sleeping for some 2.000 years and he is believed to have been sacrificed. - But perhaps he was murder victim? An executed criminal? A prisoner of war? He certainly didn't commit suicide!

Anyway, there is no doubt in my mind that QMII could hardly wait to visit the museum! Prehistory is just her thing!

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #42, 2014.
Written by our woman in France, Annelise Weimann.

The Regent Couple have been at Chateau Cayx for the annual wine harvest. Things seems to go pretty well, but just like any other farmer world wide, PH is never too positive...
Perhaps with some justification this year. Because even though the wine has gotten a pretty good review in the magazine Decanter, wild boars have eaten grapes to the equivalent of twelve thousand bottles of white wine. So he only got ten thousand bottles this yearm and he added lakonnically: "I'll be a poor farmer".

The wine harvest is going on in fact as the article went into print, so it's still too early to say what will be the final outcome.

But apart from the harvest PH has opened his own art museum in the vaults under the chateau. Here he is displaying his rather large collection of African art (*) and a collection of jade pieces.

While our reporter was there a film was being made about the chateau. The film will be a part of small clips designed to promote France.

(*) I learned a couple of years ago, by following the DRF, that virtually all African art is contemporary. In the sense that traditionally art in Africa is made for the present, to be used or enjoyed now and then it will be discarded. Art pieces being handed down through the generations are the exception - outside of collectors circles that is.

QMII opened the newly renovated Moesgaard Natural History Museaum in Aarhus - and that was something that had her interest!

In fact she opened the museum when it had been been build back in 1970, so this is a place she is most familiar with.
After giving the speech and opening the whole show it was time for a tour of the museum, and that lasted longer, a lot longer, than scheduled! Because the Majesty was very interested in curious and she wasn't contend with seeing what the museum had planned for her to see, she took a detour when something caught her interest and that happened a number of times.

- I can almost see her adjutant and LiW trying to drag QMII away from the museum!

Some of you may think you've lived to see it all. Wrong!

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #42, 2014.
Written by Henrik Salling.
The author, Erik Svane and the cartoonist, Thierry Capezzone, have made a comics album about QMII's early life as a princess.
The title is Daisy - a Princess in Denmark. Hardcover and costs a whopping 168 DKK!

They plan to publish a second volume, about QMII's early years as queen.

Reading the captions to some of the pictures it's clear to me that they are based on actual quotes from either interviews or biographies and also that the cartoonist has looked a pics of what QMII actually wore a various events.

Perhaps not all DRF members are of the current generation that sees 'read' as a four letter word best to be avoided.This kind of book in North America is called a 'graphic novel' and is wildly popular among young people. No doubt this publication is meant to endear the DRF to the next generation

Thanks, Iceflower.

As you can tell from QMII's broad smile this is a book that is sure to be read!

Let's have a little peculiar trivia about DRF burials.
Nowadays Monarchs are buried in (or outside) Roskilde Cathedral. But in medieval times that was different. If a king was killed in battle or murdered he was always buried locally. That happened to quite a few kings!
If the king died a natural death he was taken away and most often buried at Roskilde Cathedral.
I have never heard an explanation for that custom.
