Summary of two Q&A's in Billed Bladet #37, 2015.

Where a Hanne Hansen would like to know whether QMII is required to have the same hairstyle due to the portraits of her on stamps and coins.

Jon Bloch Skipper responds: No. - QMII can wear her hair anyway she likes and BTW she's had the same hairdresser, Poul Nejlund, for 35 years. On a day to day basis she handles her hair herself.

----------------

But a Karen Marie Kristensen is disappointed with QMII.
She noticed that QMII was seen buying fois gras at the market in France during August and surely that isn't compatible with QMII being patron of the Association for Protection of Animals in Denmark.

Jon Bloch Skipper wholeheartedly agrees! He can't understand how that is possible for QMII, nor does he believe it's in accordance with §5 in the Legislation Regarding the Protection of Animals, which forbids force-feeding of animals.
Perhaps QMII does not consider it a big problem if she buy fois gras in countries where it's produced legally.

- Okay, my knowledge of fois gras is very limited, I haven't even tasted it. Is it still such a big problem now? Or has the production become more humane so to speak?

It certainly has. The statue is in honor of the now amalgamated British regiment nicknamed The Buffs. QMII is honorary colonel of the amalgamated regiment. - And I can never remember the name of the regiment off hand. You know senility.

The Buffs (Royal East Kent Regiment), formerly the 3rd Regiment of Foot.

In 1961 it was amalgamated with the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment to form the Queen's Own Buffs, The Royal Kent Regiment which was later merged, on 31 December 1966, with the Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment, the Royal Sussex Regiment and the Middlesex Regiment (Duke of Cambridge's Own) to form the Queen's Regiment which was again amalgamated with the Royal Hampshire Regiment, in September 1992, to create the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (Queen's and Royal Hampshires).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffs_...Kent_Regiment)

Queen Margrethe II is Colonel-in-Chief of the The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (Queen's and Royal Hampshires)

Quote:
The Queen of Denmark has unveiled a bronze statue in recognition of the Royal East Kent Regiment. Queen Margrethe was the guest of honour at the ceremony in the grounds of Canterburry Cathedral. The sculpture is a lasting tribute to The Buffs, which was one of the oldest regiments of the British Army. British and Danish veterans were among those taking part in today's event.

The Princess of Wales Regiment renamed themselves after their other Colonel, HRH The Princess of Wales in '92'.

Thanks, all of you.

The first Danish astronaut, Andreas Mogensen, has returned safely from the International Space Station after ten days in orbit.

And QMII has issued the following statement: Her Majesty the Queen has asked me to convey her most heartfelt greetings and congratulations after the successful journey to space.
The Queen has expressed a wish to receive you in Copenhagen as soon as it it possible.

- So this is how a call for private audience sounds?
It happens that QMII ask someone to attend a private audience, when there is someone she for various reasons wish to meet or know an opinion from.
Fortunately many schools and classes have followed him closely, because I think most parents can wholeheartedly agree that here we have a genuine role-model!

As the discussion about the death and funeral of Prince Henrik's sister Maurille Beauvillain de Monpezat was led in two threads at the same time, all posts have been moved to the following thread (double posts have been removed):

A BT video from the audience: Guld til astronaut-Andreas: Fik fornem medalje af dronning Margrethe - Danmark | www.bt.dk

At the audience, the first Dane in space, Andreas Mogensen, was awarded the highest royal order for exceptional merit, bravery or accomplishment in gold.
The last time it was presented was in 1993.

The medal was introduced in 1865 and can be awarded in gold or silver.
The Danish name which is difficult to translate directly in Den Kongelige Belønningsmedalje.
Here it is in silver: http://cdn.move.bcdtravel.dk/wp-cont...gsmedalje3.jpg
The medal is engraved with the recipients name and as such is personal.

A BB video of a visibly delighted QMII reinaugurating the velvet-chamber at Christiansborg, that is being used by the DRF for representation.
A new 250 tapestry made from silk can also be seen in the clip.

I think this is the best place to put this:

The Regent Couple and the CPC has donated in total DKR 400´000,- to the refugees in Syria

I need a little help from the mods, because I honestly don't know where to place this one.

En duft af konge: Prins Henrik står bag parfumen 'H' - Royale | www.bt.dk

It's about a deodorant launched by the Gosh on behalf of PH a couple of years ago.
Under the name of H, it's made in a very limited number every year and it is also very difficult to buy. In fact one of the few places you can buy it is at the store at Chateau Cayz.
PH use it very much as a present to friends but it is not and has never been intended for sale in stores in DK.

Apparently PH use this deodorant himself.

I am sure the mods will agree that you have placed this product in the correct space! A telling testimony to the entrepreneurial spirit of the Prince Consort who would be king!

The Prince Consort who would be king - I like that line.

Given that M&F are portrayed in a film, perhaps Sean Connery could play PH? - They are about the same age aren't they?
But who should Michael Cain play in this new version?
