While down in Southern Jutland, Prince Henrik read aloud from his poetry, along side one of the absolute divas within Danish movie and theatres, Ghita Nørby.
She must be well into her 70's now and still going strong.

QMII and the Berleburgs were there too on this miserable summer evening at Augustenborg Manor: Prince Henrik recites poetry in the pouring rain | Royalista

According to BB Dronning Margrethe er draget på ferie på Chateau de Cayx | billedbladet.dk

QMII has now left for Chateau de Cayx. PH left ten ago.
That means Frederik will be holding the fort at home for the next couple of weeks or so.

And kongehuset.dk states it: HRK Crown Prince Frederik is regent from August 11th - 28th

They will not be a family gathering in Caix , only a photoshot and Joachim and family did not attend. Sad.

Prince Henrik will sell part of his lands and I think his Wine of Chateau de Caix.
He is too old and his Sons are not interested .

It is more than unlikely that M&F and J&M will visit the Regent Couple, now that school has started

Not necessary not interested but perhaps more busy. at least in Frederik's case he is taking more and more from the Queen, and with 4 busy kids...

I think they have gone every summer at least. This summer we havent seen photos but maybe Joachim and family went quietly in July? Frederik and family spent all of July at Grasten this summer...

And now for something less pleasant.

Summary of a long article in Billed Bladet #35, 2015.
Written by Trine Larsen.

PH has a few issues in his family.
His younger brother, Jean Baptiste de Laborde de Montpezat is seriously ill with cancer. He is better now and was able to attend a charity concert at Chateau Cayx with his wife.
However, his sister, Maurille Beauvillain is also sick with cancer and she was too ill to attend.
But his other brother, Etienne de Montpezat, who lives near Cayx is fortunately not ill.

At present the Regent Couple are on their usual holiday at their chateau in France. Here BB's Trine Larsen with photographer Hanne Huul, followed QMII on one of her trips to the town of Cahor near the chateau, where she shops for dinner and for whatever she fancies.
The locals are used to seeing the Queen of Denmark and ignore her out of courtesy.
QMII, followed by her LiW and in a couple of cases this year at least her good friends baroness Birgit Wedell-Wedellsborg, and a PET officer, has her favorite places where she shops at the local outdoor market.
QMII has never money on her person. Her LiW will pay for her, but one day QMII did pick up her own purse from her back when she one day went with er friend Birgit Wedell-Wedellsborg who couldn't resist a little culinary temptation, so QMII had to air her purse and pay 50 Euros.

QMII usually go to the market on Wednesdays and Saturdays should you one day find yourself in Cahors in August.

But one of the traditions at Chateau Cayx in August is a charity concert, with the participation of the Music Corps of the Royal Lifeguards Regiment.
And this year, completely surprising the Regent Couple, two musicians had put music to four of PH's poems. That delighted the Regent Couple. PH saying: "It's a lovely, lovely concert and a wonderful evening. I'm very glad and pleased".
The 70 guests present who were also invited for dinner were treated to a mix of Danish and French music.

The surplus from the concert went to among other things to an organization run by PH's sister Catherine (she's a nun) and to help restoring the local church.

Yes, Iceflower. That was a funny and somewhat embarrassing story that was well covered on the news tonight,

QMII went to the small town Christiansfeld that has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The locals are pretty delighted about that of course.
In that context the mayor of the municipality the town belongs to, Jørn Pedersen, gave a speech and displayed a water color that the town has displayed as been made by QMII when she was fourteen years old, depicting distinct houses in the town.
While the mayor was talking about that QMII waved and interrupted, saying she hasn't made that painting!
The poor mayor was taken completely aback and blurted out: "What are you saying? It isn't you"?!? Using the somewhat incorrect informal you, but QMII didn't mind.
So the mayor stood there; how to move on from here?

As a result of that story the museum where the painting is exhibited has been flooded with curious people, who all wanted to see the painting QMII did not paint...
That is, the museum claims she did: "Well, the Queen is only human. Her memory may have failed her".
- So I think we can expect a further update to this little story.

indeed, whoever told the mayor about the painting's origin has a 'lot of 'splaining to do! \

At least they didn't claim that it failed her out of another reason, that would have been less charming..

This afternoon, August 31, Queen Margrethe visited the Queen's Holiday Village in Grenaa tha celebrates its 25th anniversary.

While Queen Margrethe was already back on duty, Prince Henrik stayed a bit longer in France and attended the 20th book fair 'La Foret Des Livres' in Chanceaux-près-Loches, central France, on August 30:

Today QMII takes part in the ordination of Henrik Wigh-Poulsen as bishop over Aarhus Diocese.

There has been a lot of these ordinations over the past years due to the age fact But IIRC then it will take a few years now before the next one.

It is such a pretty and colourful view to see all the bishops in their finest. Many of the ropes are designed by QMII.

QMII wore a green ensemble :)

Well, the mystery about the painting QMII said she never painted, but has been attributed to her for 60 years, has been solved.
BB writes in issue #35, that back around 1954 an artist who lived in the town of Christiansfeld, named Lars Svane, most likely painted the little painting.
About that time Princess Margrethe visited the town and somehow this little painting was attributed and displayed as being by her.
