I love how QMII wore blue to open The Blue Planet, if that's not suitable, I don't know what is (though I will happily agree that her "hat" isn't suitable ... for any occasion). I live freakishly close to the aquarium and had I not been to school on Thursday, I would have tried to catch a glimpse of Margrethe and Henrik (or perhaps not, I was out there on Monday and it was storming so bad and there were hundreds of people, which, I can tell you right now, is a combination that can drive anyone nuts).

Yesterday, March 26, Queen Margrethe received a new garden bench for the park of Marselisborg Palace. It's a belated gift from the city Aarhus to mark Margrethe's 40th jubilee in 2012.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik have been in Herning today, April 1st, to attend the celebrations that marked the 100th anniversay of Herning. In early 1913, Herning had gained its status as a borough.

Not a fan of the painting, 7-year old boy posing like that isn't natural.

Thanks LadyFinn

I like it. I think it captures Christian very well.
Much better than if he was just standing there - and he is his father's son...

The lion is a bit much, in my estimation

That's one of three silver-lions standing in the Throneroom at Rosenborg Castle.

I like the painting
I think the pose is cute. But if we wanted a real natural pose of a 7 yr old boy, Christian would be riding the lion

Does Frederik have a similar painting or picture with the lion(s)?

oh a little charmer :-) i think it is a perfect way for an 7 years to pose, he looks happy, confident and like a cool and smart boy :-) Glad he did not just stand and yes, there is no doubt who his daddy is :-) and I must say I really like and appreciate that Frederik&Mary never dress Christian with tie

Great portrait that gives a glimpse of the young princes personality. Love the Rosenborg silver lion.
I wonder where QMII will hang the portrait.

and his grandmother's heir, so that the Lion is indeed very appropriate; I wonder if he has her wrapped around his thumb like he has the lion? Thanks for the reminder Muhler, but I saw those lions when I visted Rosenborg and was mightily impressed!

Thanks for the pics LadyFinn

Notice Christian's missing tooth He is a good mix between his parents IMO -he has his mother's beautiful classic features and his father's boyish charm.

Maybe I certainly think that they (Christian and grandma Margrethe) has a special bond between them. He is the heir to the throne. IIRC, she has also mentioned it once in an interview.

Christian himself is captured very well but I find the lion too much and the pose is dreadful for a kid, its like a playboy's pose wearing a shiny suit.
