The link on the right side worked for me. I just wish it was in English or that I understood Danish!

Thanks for all the links to the photos and video, I like the changes and most of the artwork especially the oval painting.
Seeing the video really made me wish I could visit.

I just watched this video, and I really enjoyed it - and was in awe of all the work, efforts and deliberations that have been put into this restoration.

Amazing that they find relicts of ornaments from an old hidden ceiling under the flooring so they can copy and recreate the ornamentation and bring it back to around 1820.

It was quite funny hearing one of the architects using the words 'accessories' and searching for an equivalent Danish word -and Mary helping him by saying 'nips'. She seems to have a quite extensive Danish vocabulary.

They are also going to have a rather large pool. Has that been completed?? Will it be an indoor or a outdoor pool??
Because it is going to be part of the CP Couple's residence, will other royal members of the family be able to make free of it, or is it considered just the CP Couples private home, and they would have to wait for a invitation ??
They also have an outdoor pool at their Khancellory House which I believee is for their use only, except by invitation

I didn't know they were getting a pool, i doubt its outdoor as there is no where to put an outdoor pool.
I don't think the other members of the DRF will have to invited to use their pool, they are family of course but I don't see Joachim travelling everyday just to swim in the pool.

Love what they've done to the old building. Difficult to incorporate old and new styles, but they've done well. Would love to see if they use some of the old furnishings from the original times of 1940's. The chandeliers look great all polished up. At least they can change some of the art work if they want. The port of Nyhaven is immediately recognizable. Does anyone know when they move in?

As far as I know, some time after the summer break...

According to the plans, they are going to have an outdoor pool in the garden.
I believe Mary and Frederik will have no objections to other members of the DRF going for a swim, when they are not around themselves.
I can well imagin Prince Henrik and a dachshund or two refreshing themselves in the pool during a hot summer day.

It is a pantry! It's almost ajacent to their daily dining room - so the information says - where they can seat around 20. The theme on the murals in the pantry is hunting, so it's definetely not a childrens room! Queen Ingrid used to a have pantry there too, but it looked more like a kitchen back then, if a photo on the information stand is anything to go by! The proper kitchen is in the basement by the way. It is the room where the old beautiful stuccato ceiling was found, as Userdane mentioned.

Erm... that's the information for all to read on a placard in the dining room! I was wondering about it too, Ashelen, but there you go. The room is not that big (well not by royal standards at least! ).

Of course it does not rule out that they have some sort of dining facility on the private floor; they won't volunteer that information.

There are two dining rooms in the two lower floors; the above mentioned dining room on the first floor (the socalled "beletage") and the banquet hall (which seats ca. 50 60) on the ground floor.

Lancchick,

Thanks for the link--very fascinating piece. When the royal couple move in, does that mean the public tours stop? It appears that the palace has become a combination art museum/royal palace. Although the art looks fantastic, I am not sure I would be comfortable being surrounded by some of that art year round.

yes, the public tours will stop at the beginning of August. The period was extended from May because of the overwhelming public interest.

I have heard from people who have seen it that it is impressive and that the artwork work really well.
If they want a pause from the artwork they must have lots of other rooms they kan resort to.
