Does anyone have the picture Mary took of the Riddarsalen their home?
I think it was part of the series of private pictures that she released around her 40th birthday.
I can't find it anymore.

Perhaps someone can offer an explanation?

Here is a scan of an ambulance entering a gate at Amalienborg: https://app.box.com/s/u3lkdrfobukg5rlt7jod

What on earth is an airforce ambulance doing at Amalienborg?
The logic thing would be to use an ambulance from Copenhagen Firebrigade (or whoever you use over there on the Devil's Island...) the nearest airforce base is after all some distance away.

On April 15,1689, King Christian V celebrated his birthday at the Sophie Amalienborg Palace with the presentation of a German opera.

Could have been nearby when the call was made.

That's a very plausible answer.

Based on a Q&A in Billed Bladet I can add this trivia:

There is a fitness room at Amalienborg, which is used by the employees as well as the DRF, mostly, it is presumed, by M&F.
There is also a fitness room at Kancellihuset at Fredensborg.

And PH had some instruments of torture set up inside Fredensborg Palace itself, which he is supposed to be using. - Good for his weight and back, buuuut....

Sorry, if my post doesn't fit here.

My husband, my son (3,5 years old) and I want to travel this year to Copenhagen and I would like to visit Amalienborg together with my two boys.

Are there audio guides in German provided and does it make sense visiting Amalienborg with such a young child?

How exciting if you, your husband and son come to Copenhagen, Principessa

I hope you will get warm sunny weather.. Then Copenhagen is the most beautiful city in the world (said by Dane, I know) I will suggest you to take a boat ride called "The Canal Tour", the boats sail to our biggest cultural attractions - Amalienborg Palace, the Opera House, Christiansborg, The Little Mermaid, Trekroner Fort etc.

Amalienborg Palace for a 3,5 year old? Well, lets face it, Amalienborg doesn't look like a real castle. It's four large square buildings placed opposite each other with a roundabout in the middle (Actually CP Frederik's own words). But I have had my own children with me and they had a great time - the guardsmen are always a hit. I would definitely suggest you to go see Amalienborg.

Go and visit Nyhavn too - and have a lunch there. Very Danish and meget hyggeligt (very cozy)

Råd i taget på Amalienborg
An article about the roof of the mansion the Regent Couple live in at Amalienborg is now in such a sorry state that it must be fuly renovated.
The last time the roof was renovated was in 1937, so you can safely say it's about time!

The cost will no be covered by the DRF but by the state, as the state owns Amalienborg and exterior costs for repairs and maintanaince is covered by the state.

Here are a few of the photos I took of M and F's Amalienborg Palace.

These are from the back, as I'm sure most people who are interested would have seen the front in many other photos over the years.

Notice the gold crown on the "Alarm" sign.

This is the garden door that is on the street - across from the canal and the bus parking area.

Thanks, Sun Lion.

I see you had a couple of shots at M&F's bedroom windows, and they were home that day.

Thank you for sharing the link Muhler. Now correct if I'm wrong but the photos show the ground floor public reception rooms along with the banqueting kitchen?

From what I understand, the CP couple and the children live and work on the upper floors. Is that the case?

That's correct. The two lower floors are primarily offices, reception and representation. - But with four lively children around I guess you can find toys here and there as well from time to time.

During WWII there were fighting around Amalienborg three times. On 9th April when the Germans invaded. The Royal Lifeguards fired at German soldiers probing toward Amalienborg.
On 29th August 1943, when the Danish Parliament stopped co-operating and the Danish military (what was left of it) was rounded up. Again the Royal Lifeguard fired back.
And finally in 1944 when the police was rounded up. (After the military was interned, the police stood guard at Amalienborg).
And until the early hours of 5th May 1945 it was German soldiers who stood guard, when they withdrew to their barracks and Resistance fighters stood guard until the Danish Brigade returned from Sweden and had time to allocate a few men for guard duty.

But the bullet holes at Amalienborg are still visible as you can see in this video: VIDEO Skudhullerne i Amalienborg minder os om krigen i Danmark | Nyheder | DR

I'm reading Emma Tom's book, ''Something About Mary''...I know, I know... She mentions a story about Queen Ingrid: when the Germans invaded, they wanted to take over Ingrid and Frederik's home for their headquarters. She told them that the Danes had allowed them into the country, but there was no way they were getting her home. She wouldn't let them in! No wonder she was so admired.
