Dronningen fejrer Kastellet | Billed Bladet
As a part of the celebration of the first forming of a regular standing army in Denmark, QMII today visited Kastellet in Copenhagen. - Near Amalienborg, actually Mary has been observed going for a morning jog around there.
Kastellet is the main part of what used to be Copenhagen Fortress. Copenhagen used to heavily fortified up until WWII.
Today it's still a military HQ and it houses various military installations.

She was recieved by the commandant, Jørgen Kold, and given a brief tour in a golfcar. (That's used more and more frequently, so I guess her knees are not always that well).
She visited the museum too and watched a number of displays, by among other the Horse Squadron of the Guards Hussars.
Then it was off to a reception.

A video of PH reading aloud from his poems:

I should very much like to know what our French speaking members have to say to PH's French and if his poetry.

The event took place in the town of Viborg at the Soldiers Association for Prinsens Livregiment. - Which was BTW the oldest regiment in the army, but it has now been amalgamated into Jutland Dragoon Regiment, where Joachim is a reserve staff officer.
A livregiment is (was) a semi-guards regiment, but attached to a particular royal. So a fitting translation could be The Prince Consorts Own Regiment.

Queen Ingrid also had a livregiment - Dronningens Livregiment - which can be translated to something like The Dowager Queen's Own Regiment.
That regiment has also been amalgamated.
Members from that regiment used to stand guard outside Gråsten when Queen Ingrid was in residence.

The Prince could have worn a black tie instead of this electric blue.

That's an interesting question, because I have been wondering too.
As far as I can see there is also a Belgian flag.

As this is supposed to be in commemoration of WWI, that's slightly confusing. If we look apart from the odd escaped POW who might have been interred in DK during WWI and died there, I don't know why Belgian and French soldiers should be buried in Copenhagen.
There are lots of British sailors buried in DK from WWI, especially after the battle of Jutland 1916, but they are mostly buried at local churchyards along the west coast of Jutland

If the graves are from WWII then it makes a lot more sense. I'm sure there must have been certainly Free French aircrews operating over DK.

Thanks Dazzling.

I was wondering what was so special about Ledøje church.
Build in 1225 or there about, it looks like a standard parish church of that period, just not chalked white as is most common: http://www.egedalforum.dk/wp-content...E52B5@fd09.jpg

It isn't. It unique in DK in being a double-church. I.e. two churches in one.
The upper church for the local nobleman and his family (he build the church as a private chapel in the first place) with the only access to the upper church via a corridor going from the now long gone manor.
The common riff-riff, servants, tenants, merchants and what not used the lower church. Ledøje Kirke | ls-kirker.dk

The church is believed to have been inspired by similar chapels in Germany, but such churches are rare.

Perhaps our resident expert, FasterB, can tell us more?

The odds are about 0.00004:1 that QMII is very well aware of the history of that church and that she has visited it before.

I have to say that HM white cashmere coat worn to the Hussars regiment on the 17th is my all time favourite. I just love it. Wish it were cold enough here sometimes for us to where that type of thing.

The cashmere worn by QMII was by Celli Freifeldt, according to BB.

Summery of article in Billed Bladet #47, 2014.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

You may recall that Prince Henrik were among a number of people laying down wreaths at the graves of French soldiers on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of WWI.
You may also recall how I was puzzled as to what French soldiers from WWI were doing in Denmark, let alone being buried there.

It turns out that they were among a number of French soldiers who after WWI were on transit back to France. Unfortunately they caught the Spanish Flu and died.

Every year these soldiers are commemorated by an organisation called Le Souvenier Francais, which look after French wargraves all over the world.
PH happens to be patron of Le Souvenier Francais in Denmark and it was in that capacity he was there, along with a number of ambassadors and other representatives.
Back in 1918 there were clear class distinctions, officers were buried in a zink-coffin, privates in a wooden coffin.

That is also my all time favorite coat on her, it is beautiful when I first saw it and still think the same. The town of Viborg is beautiful and that is now on my must list of places to visit some day.
