From the end of February until March 11th Queen Margrethe seems to have been missing in action. For part of that time Crown Prince Frederik and Prince Joachim appear to have acted as Regents. Can anyone tell me where the Queen was? In France or perhaps ill? She just seems to have disappeared.

Wasn't she in Norway?

The Queen is definitely a creature of habit and she usually holidays in Norway end of Feb/beginning of March for a couple of weeks. Like Muhler, I just assumed that was where she was.

Maybe HM is at Trend or perhaps gone to warmer climes for a holiday.

Thankyou all for your answers. I didn't know she usually went to Norway, and I was puzzled.

QMII's close personal friend and author, Helle Stangerup is dead.
BT has compiled a gallery and there are quite a number of pics of Princess Margrethe and Helle Stangerup in their youth: Dronningens veninde død: Se billederne fra succesforfatteren Helle Stangerups liv | www.bt.dk

QMII has reached the age when old friends regrettably begin to die.

Pic #1: Princess Margrethe and Stangerup arrive to Copenhagen University, where QMII studied for a period.
Pic #2: They arrived late to the packed auditorium and had to stand up in the back of the auditorium for most of the lecture. Until later when they were offered seats. - Such an ordeal simply calls for a fag!
Pic #4: Princess Margrethe as godmother for Stangerup's son.
Pic #5: Princess Margrethe next to Stangerup as high school graduates.
Pic #8: Leaving Copenhagen University after passing her examination in Filosofikum. Princess Margrethe got top marks, UG or the grade 13, for my generation or 12 for the current generation.
Pic 9: Fashionably late is not a good idea when you want to attend a lecture at the university...

Must be very sad for HM to lose an old friend. As you say the royal couple are at an age where they will lose many old friends and acquaintances.

That is sad news - Helle Stangerup and Queen Margrethe seemed almost like sisters when they were young.

Thanks, Iceflower

The article confirms that the RC have already moved to nearby Marselisborg.
I can well imagine that this exhibition - and Moesgaard Prehistorical museum in general, is something QMII would have been perfectly happy to drag herself on knees and elbows to attend!

BB informs us in this weeks magazine edition that PH have been on holiday in Egypt, with his cousin Clariette Lavasseur and a number of friends.

They first went to Cairo and visited the national museum and the pyramids at Giza, before moving on to Luxor, where the visited the Valley of the Kings.
The trip ended in Aswan and the Kom Ombo Temple.
During the trip the party stayed at hotels owned by PH's good friends the hotel owner Enan Galaly. - He worked himself up from the very bottom!

Thank you for this and for posting the video of the 'fakkeltogt'. The maddening thing about Danish is that, although it is fairly easy to read (and thank you to google translate), it is impossible to understand when spoken so that one needs to rely on our patient Danish speaking board members to translate for us what the Queen actually said during her thank you speech! This is, of course, a plea to share the jokes that the Queen was telling, because she certainly got her audience to laugh! mange tak

You're welcome

Yesterday, April 20, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg visited Denmark and was received by Queen Margrethe for a private audience.

The other gentleman on the pics is Nicolai Wammen, Danish Minister of Defence.

It seems like Prince Henrik is giving up on the wine production. Château de Cayx ? salg og produktion af vin bliver bortforpagtet - Kongehuset


There seems to be some kind of pattern here, but I'm not really sure what it is. There's Henriks recent "I should be king" outburst. Then there's a holiday in Egypt. After that, he's absent from the Queens birtday celebrations - allegedly out with the flu - but shows up as a tourist in Venice just Days after. I honestly don't know what to make of all this.

I'm wondering if he really was ill or is this somehow connected with his "I should be king rant?'
