I couldn't see on the site how old the aerial photos were. So we don't know I guess, if Freds garden is the same today as in that photo. Maybe very different now after the renovation. That aerial photo could be years old.

Which reminds me: when will someone build a 'replica hotel' of a royal palace in Vegas? If not a replica of Amalienborg then Buckingham Palace??
Ashelen, why not propose the idea to Mr. Wynn!!

I love Amalienborg because it is four 'residences' (my 'residence' is 1/100th the size of just one of the palaces ) which make up the whole... I like the octogon shape with the central square...So it's possible each (nuclear) family to occupy their own 'home' while still being part of a larger whole...that is what I see the problem of Buckingham Palace, they practically live on top of each other in there in comparison

this would be my dream if i win the lotto I would do it mysself!my father always wanted to build all the family homes in the same area together, as a danish he may be had the idea from this Amalienborg, the grandkids living close to grandma!
It could be great here the only ashamed is that here the people don't dress up anymore to have such exquisite place and go to visit with shorts, and sewety t-shirt and flip flops it is frustrating, everytime i go dress up to one of the hotels everybody turn their head to look at me! no coultor here for such magestic place!

This is the palace I wish to see with my own eyes when I one day visit denmark and it's one of my favorite palaces.
So I want to get something clear, Mary and Fredrick live in one and queen margarethe II in another and prince Joachim and princess Marie in another? It's 4 palaces and are 3 used by the royal family ? So then what's the 4th possibly used for?

The Regent Couple live in one palace. M&F in another. A Third is a museum and the fourth have rooms for some ceremonial purposes and contains apartments for Benedikte and Joachim, perhaps Nathalie and Anne-Marie as well. Apart from that there are also guest rooms here and there.

Try write the captions down and request a translation here.
A little help: Ř = oe, Ć = ae, Ĺ = aa.

Quite big, I understand.
Before he took over the apartment he uses now, he had an apartment above one of the gates in the palace. You know, the "wings" going from the mansions themselves and that became pretty cramped once he had a family, but he nevertheless lived there for periods with both wife and children.

Frederik's bachelor apartment at Amalienborg took up at least half a floor. But once he got married, he and Mary soon after moved to Kancellihuset at Fredenborg and that became their main home, so I guess for years that apartment was basically only used for sleeping after a late night, a change of clothes, a quick lunch and on one occasion a New Year party.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #46, 2011.
Margrethe kan ikke bo pĺ Amalienborg - Margrethe can't live at Amalienborg.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

In the 2. July this year, Denmark experienced a cloud burst and Copenhagen in particular suffered from the almost biblical rain - certainly in Danish terms. (*)
That led to the electricity going out at Amalienbor and also that water poured into the basements of all four mansions, and also in the administrative mansion, The Yellow Mansion, next to Amalieborg.
That led to severe damage in Christian IX's Mansion, where the Regent Couple resides. The kitchen, the laders, the staff dining room were among the rooms suffering from severe water damage.
That means that QMII and PH will remain at Fredenborg for some time yet, rather than moving into Amalienborg as they usually do every winter. (**)
The Regent Couple is expected to move in at Amalienborg around New Year. When the renovations have been completed. Actually they are supposed to return to Amalienborg on day of New Year, a few hours before QMII delivers her live New Year speech at 18.00.

The rooms have been dryied up again and that takes time due to the thick walls of the mansions and the damages have been surveyed. Floors several hundred years old have been ruined and have had to be replaced.
The steward of the mansion, Jens Greve reassure us: "Easy now. We will be ready for the coronation jubilee. We work as much as we can. Both the mansion of the Queen and the mansion where the guests will saty, will be ready. I guarantee that".

It wasn't just wooden floors that were ruined. The new excersize room, used by the staff (as well as members of the DRF) was affected too. The instruments of torture there were litterally drowned.
Rooms with silverware were also affected, so a lot of polishing has probably taken place as well.
It appears M&F's mansion suffered the least.

(*) The weather really is getting weird! Noticably in the last ten fifteen years. When I was a child and young, such torrential rains was a sensation. Now it's a yearly occurance, happening several times a year.
When severe storms happened it was something you talked about for years, now such storms are almost also yearly events.
There is in my eyes little doubt that the climate seems to be changing. - If that is so, and the main reason is human activities, we can at least do something about it.
However, if this is a natural fluctuation, and I believe it is, we are pretty much screwed.

(**) Actually the Regent Couple stay longer and longer at Fredensborg as the years go by.

Do they also have "guest" suites.............
During the Queen's 40th celebrations they had numerous visitors from other countries, did they all stay at the Palace, or did they stay at hotels in the area ?
What about their hair-stylists, dressers, security teams..?
